We are to put God’s priorities first in our lives and walk according to His will. So how does The Day of Trumpets lead us to rise above our priorities?

Sermon Notes

INTRO: The Holy Days Image steps in God’s Plan for His Creation.  Also OUR part in the Plan is revealed. How are we to participate in the revelations of the Day of Trumpets? That meaning is OUR participation in Christ’s Return and the Kingdom Family of God beginning on earth

We know the words we want to hear when Christ returns, these are recorded in 

Matthew 25:21 Matthew 25:21His lord said to him, Well done, you good and faithful servant: you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things: enter you into the joy of your lord.
American King James Version×
. “His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.

BENEFIT STATEMENT: Sometimes we can get stressed out when we think about how prepared we are for the kingdom of God. Have we grown enough, have we done all that we should to prepare?

We are Preparing NOW for Kingdom LIFE

SPS: So we are to put God’s priorities first in our lives and walk according to His will. Then we realize that we don’t get the “glory” now. It is not about us. So how do we put God’s priorities first in order to Rise Above This Physical Life

BODY:

  1. Trumpets keeps us focused on what God is doing & AWAY from our temporary life.

We might worry how well we have grown 

2 Peter 3:13-18 2 Peter 3:13-18 [13] Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells righteousness. [14] Why, beloved, seeing that you look for such things, be diligent that you may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless. [15] And account that the long-suffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given to him has written to you; [16] As also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, to their own destruction. [17] You therefore, beloved, seeing you know these things before, beware lest you also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own steadfastness. [18] But grow in grace, and in the knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be glory both now and for ever. Amen.
American King James Version×
 Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells. 14 Therefore, beloved, looking forward to these things, be diligent to be found by Him in peace, without spot and blameless

((((Matthew 24: 32-51) ((((Matthew 25: 1-13)

  • The main point is the need to “watch” (stay focused)
“Watch” = major focus of end time instruction of Christ  

((((literal meaning = remain awake Matthew 26:38-40 Matthew 26:38-40 [38] Then said he to them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even to death: tarry you here, and watch with me. [39] And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as you will. [40] And he comes to the disciples, and finds them asleep, and said to Peter, What, could you not watch with me one hour?
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
38  Then He said to them, "My soul is exceedingly sorrowful, even to death. Stay here and watch with Me." 39  He went a little farther and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, "O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as You will." 40  Then He came to the disciples and found them asleep, and said to Peter, "What? Could you not watch with Me one hour?)

((((figurative meaning = be vigilant, alert (1 Peter 5:8 1 Peter 5:8Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour:
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
8  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.)

  • Or stay focused
  • On what? Why?

Luke 21:34-36 Luke 21:34-36 [34] And take heed to yourselves, lest at any time your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting, and drunkenness, and cares of this life, and so that day come on you unawares. [35] For as a snare shall it come on all them that dwell on the face of the whole earth. [36] Watch you therefore, and pray always, that you may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
34  "But take heed to yourselves, lest your hearts be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and cares of this life, and that Day come on you unexpectedly. 35  For it will come as a snare on all those who dwell on the face of the whole earth. 36  Watch therefore, and pray always that you may be counted worthy to escape all these things that will come to pass, and to stand before the Son of Man."  –

“Watch & pray” 

  • Some will remain vigilant, many, including most of the world, will not.
  • Why? Because they are so wrapped up in the pressures and problems of life.
  • The grammatical form of both verbs, “take heed” & “watch” indicates not just a one-time event but an ongoing process.
  • Trumpets looks FORWARD to …the END of our physical life AND Eternity of Loving Service

Colossians 3:1-4 Colossians 3:1-4 [1] If you then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sits on the right hand of God. [2] Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. [3] For you are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. [4] When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall you also appear with him in glory.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
1  If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. 2  Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 3  For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. 4  When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

Command to set affections on things above

  • The form of the verb translated “set” also indicates not just a one-time event but an ongoing process of setting.

 ((((Colossians 3:2 Colossians 3:2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.
American King James Version×
“The things above be constantly seeking.… The things above be constantly setting your mind upon, not things on the earth” (The New Testament, an Expanded Translation by Kenneth Wuest).

  • like setting clock that needs resetting
  • We need to be constantly resetting our minds on the things above for the same reasons.
  • Over time our spiritual mechanisms get out of adjustment.
  • This is why we have 7 Holy Days every year – to help us constantly seek our focus.
  • God mercifully foresaw the need for these ongoing opportunities to focus on His plan.

Most of the world does not have this opportunity because of Satan’s deception.

(((2 Corinthians 4:3-4 2 Corinthians 4:3-4 [3] But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: [4] In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine to them.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
3  But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, 4  whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.)

The hope of eternal life in the family of God is the focal point of God’s plan that enables us to continue enduring all the hardships of physical life

2 Corinthians 4:6-18 2 Corinthians 4:6-18 [6] For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. [7] But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. [8] We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; [9] Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; [10] Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. [11] For we which live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. [12] So then death works in us, but life in you. [13] We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; [14] Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. [15] For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. [16] For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. [17] For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; [18] While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
American King James Version×
(NKJV) 6
 For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ. 7  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us. 8  We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; 9  persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed-- 10  always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body. 11  For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12  So then death is working in us, but life in you. 13  And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, "I believed and therefore I spoke," we also believe and therefore speak, 14  knowing that He who raised up the Lord Jesus will also raise us up with Jesus, and will present us with you. 15  For all things are for your sakes, that grace, having spread through the many, may cause thanksgiving to abound to the glory of God. 16  Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. 17  For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, 18  while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.  .

Vigilance and focus are two separate but related qualities we need in order to navigate the trials and tribulations of life and stay on course to eternal life.

  • Vigilance = remaining alert to the dangers (like Texas coast and Florida residents prior to the Hurricanes)
  • Focus = looking to God and His promises to see us through the difficulties

Keeping God’s Holy Days help us remain vigilant and focused on the plan of God.

  1. WE must learn to accept THE Hope God is Giving us to motivate our lives right NOW!

We are saved in/by/for hope

Romans 8:24 Romans 8:24For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man sees, why does he yet hope for?
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
24  For we were saved in this hope, but hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees?

How/why was Paul able to make this statement?

Romans 8:18 Romans 8:18For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
American King James Version×
(NKJV) 18
 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Because he was focused on the hope of the Firstfruits.

Romans 8:19-23 Romans 8:19-23 [19] For the earnest expectation of the creature waits for the manifestation of the sons of God. [20] For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope, [21] Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. [22] For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. [23] And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.
American King James Version×
(NKJV) 19
 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. 20  For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; 21  because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. 22  For we know that the whole creation groans and labors with birth pangs together until now. 23  Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.

 Our main hope is not in this life. Hope = anchor for soul

Hebrews 6:18-19 Hebrews 6:18-19 [18] That by two immutable things, in which it was impossible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold on the hope set before us: [19] Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters into that within the veil;
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
18  that by two immutable things, in which it is impossible for God to lie, we might have strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold of the hope set before us. 19  This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the Presence behind the veil,

  • An anchor prevents drifting off course.
  • Likewise, the Holy Days keep us on the path of God’s plan.
  • Let’s be sure to prepare our minds and hearts to benefit fully from the Fall Festival season so that by keeping the Holy Days, we will remain vigilant and focused on God’s plan and actively preparing to fulfill our destiny in the family of God.

From Dust to Glory – Rise Above It All - PLAN – GOD HAS A PLAN – A PURPOSE

WHAT WE FIND IS THAT GOD HAS A PURPOSE THAT HE HAS BEEN WORKING ON IN PAST ETERNITY AND THAT WILL EXTEND INTO ETERNITY.

  1. Ephesians 1:5 Ephesians 1:5Having predestinated us to the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,
    American King James Version×
    , 9, 11.
      The scriptures clearly reveal that God has a purpose – a Plan.

(((((5 having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,
9 having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure which He purposed in Himself,
11 In Him also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestined according to the purpose of Him who works all things according to the counsel of His will,
 

  1. (((((Ephesians 1:4 Ephesians 1:4According as he has chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:
    American King James Version×
    just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love,
     
  2. (((((Matthew 25:34 Matthew 25:34Then shall the King say to them on his right hand, Come, you blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

  4. (((((Ephesians 3:11 Ephesians 3:11According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
    American King James Version×
    – Eternal purpose that God accomplished in JC.
  1. God planned everything out ahead of time.  He is in the process of carrying out His purpose.

WHY DID HE CREATE MATTER?  WHY WAS MAN MADE OUT OF MATTER – DUST?

  1. Humans do not dwell on the same plane or dimension that God does.  He dwells in the spirit realm.  We are physical and God created the physical realm or dimension for us to inhabit.

Hebrews 2:10 Hebrews 2:10For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
American King James Version×
.
(NKJV) 10 For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.

  1. God wants to bring all of us to GLORY!      
  2. Matter is temporary – spiritual is not.
  3. 2 Cor 4.17, 18 - Things we can see are temporal, but the things we can’t are eternal.

2 Corinthians 4:181 2 Corinthians 4:181
American King James Version×
7 (NKJV)18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
 

  1. WHAT are we Hoping FOR? THE FULNESS OF CHRIST – TOTAL Commitment

This is the process that we have come to understand.That God is fixing, what rebellion has broken from the Garden of Eden.It’s a process of reconciliation.

We see this time ahead of those saved is referred to as rest.  We see here this rest is a Type of Sabbath, in that it refers to a time that is separated and set apart from all other time.

WHAT IS GOD DOING WITH US TODAY?  WHAT IS HE CREATING NOW IN US?

  1. (((((Ephesians 4:24 Ephesians 4:24And that you put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.
    American King James Version×
    (NKJV)
    24 and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.
  2. (((((Colossians 3:10 Colossians 3:10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
    American King James Version×
    (NKJV)
    10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him,

Christlikeness is the goal of the Christian walk.

Colossians 1:26-28 Colossians 1:26-28 [26] Even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to his saints: [27] To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory: [28] Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
26 the mystery which has been hidden from ages and from generations, but now has been revealed to His saints. 27 To them God willed to make known what are the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles: which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.

2 Corinthians 3:18 2 Corinthians 3:18But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the LORD.
American King James Version×
(NKJV) 18 But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.

  1. Unveiled face = Our minds have been opened to see and understand spiritual things – V. 14.
  2. The mirror is the word of God. As we go to the Bible, we see the nature, character and example of Christ revealed to us.
    1. We do not yet see Him face to face, but only as mirrored in the word.
    2. It is the glory of the Lord that we behold
  3. This marvelous, transforming process takes place from glory to glory, that is, from one degree of glory to another.
  4. Transformation (metamorphoōg, Gk.)
    1. The word translated changed (KJV) is the same word translated transfigured in the accounts of our Lord’s transfiguration (Matt. 17; Mark 9).
    2. It describes a change on the outside that comes from the inside. Our English word metamorphosis is a transliteration of this Greek word.
      1. First we change our mind, our hearts, our attitudes, our approach, our thinking, etc.
      2. This is then reflected on the outside in how we treat others, our relationships, our actions, our obedience, our service, etc.
    3. Metamorphosis describes the process that changes an insect from a larva into a pupa and then into a mature insect. The changes come from within.
  5. We are actually being transformed (lit., metamorphosed) into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.
  6. Whereas Moses’ face reflected glory, our faces radiate glory from inside. [iii]
  7.  (“Ever-increasing glory” is the niv‘s rendering of the Gr. phrase, “from glory into glory,” i.e., from one stage of glory to another.)
  8. First comes the inner spiritual glory which is the development of the image of JC who is the image of God.  This means that we will be like the Father – have His image
  9. It is not our physical appearance that is being changed presently, but our inner being![iv]
  10. 4 images mentioned –
    1. Look like God
    2. Spiritual image of God
    3. Image of man – composition
    4. Image of God – composition.

THE FULNESS OF CHRIST – TOTAL Commitment BY God

CONCLUSION:

  1. TOTAL COMMITMENT  B O T H  Ways:  

1 Corinthians 15:24-28 1 Corinthians 15:24-28 [24] Then comes the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule and all authority and power. [25] For he must reign, till he has put all enemies under his feet. [26] The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. [27] For he has put all things under his feet. But when he said all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. [28] And when all things shall be subdued to him, then shall the Son also himself be subject to him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
American King James Version×
– God will be “all in all”.  (NKJV) 24 Then comes the end, when He delivers the kingdom to God the Father, when He puts an end to all rule and all authority and power. 25 For He must reign till He has put all enemies under His feet. 26 The last enemy that will be destroyed is death. 27 For “He has put all things under His feet.” But  when He says “all things are put under Him,it is evident that He who put all things under Him is excepted. 28 Now when all things are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself will also be subject to Him who put all things under Him, that God may be all in all.

Ephesians 1:22-23 Ephesians 1:22-23 [22] And has put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, [23] Which is his body, the fullness of him that fills all in all.

Trumpets pictures the END of the physical testing we endure now as - God’s divine nature, attributes, approach will be in all who have been given eternal life and will be exercised in all the universe.

Review:

  • Trumpets keeps us focused on what God is doing & AWAY from our temporary life.
  • WE must learn to accept THE Hope God is Giving us to motivate our lives right NOW!
  • WHAT are we Hoping FOR? THE FULLNESS OF CHRIST - TOTAL Commitment

CLOSE: The FINAL Testing is being announced to the God’s People right NOW! The TEST is being conducted right NOW! It culminates with the FIRST resurrection at THE return of Jesus Christ!

The Feast of Trumpets depicts nothing less than the return of Jesus Christ to the earth to establish the Kingdom of God! The book of Revelation reveals a sequence of earth-shaking events heralded by angels sounding a series of seven trumpet blasts.

The Bible foretells that at this time Jesus Christ will at last return to the earth. Of all the prophecies in the Bible, this one surely heralds the most exciting news possible for this weary, sin-filled world!

The Feast of Trumpets also marks the future fulfillment of the many Old Testament prophecies that speak of a Messiah coming as a king of the line of David who will sit on the throne of Israel and rule with power and authority over all nations.

2 Corinthians 13:14 2 Corinthians 13:14The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen.
American King James Version×
(NKJV)
The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
