I was lying in bed one day, wandering somewhat aimlessly in my thoughts, when the Spirit clearly interjected a question into my mind: “HAVE YOU EVER HEARD A TRUMPET BLAST?” I thought “Hmmm, I’m not sure.” He directed me to the trumpet blast in Exodus 19. In this account, when the trumpet was heard, there were two very different and distinct reactions: The people who were not hungry for God trembled with fear and drew back. But Moses, who was consumed with hunger for God, ran like a bride running to her wedding, to meet with God on the mountain top (even in the midst of all the shaking and fire and smoke).

Later that same day, I received what I believe is a continuation of what God was saying. I ended up going over to some friends’ house and there was a guy there that I had met only once before. And when I saw him, he immediately said “I had a dream about you last night. In the dream, there was a scary, destructive flood, and because of this flood, you and I and others were forced up a mountain to seek higher ground. I saw you on this mountain lying face down, praying. Then Jesus came and placed His hand on your head and began praying for you, and your face began to glow.”

And then I realized that there were some similarities to these two revelations. When the trumpet blast sounded, Moses also went up a mountain, where, in the Presence of God, his face began to glow, as did my face in my friend’s dream.

WHAT I BELIEVE GOD IS SAYING IS THIS: All this refers to the things that are now happening in the earth in this season. A trumpet is being sounded. And we, like all people, have a choice – to either allow passivity and fear and depression and discouragement and unbelief to overcome and overwhelm us – or to allow the events in the world to push us “up the mountain” and closer to God.

And as this watershed event continues to happen across the planet, it will be clearer and clearer who is governed by fear and who is inspired by God, as the darkness gets darker and the Light gets brighter – and then those who are overwhelmed by fear and darkness will see the Bride, shining like Moses, and MANY will run to the light of Christ that they see reflected in her face. And this, I believe, will usher in the last great revival before the Bridegroom returns.

“For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.” This is a profound mystery — but I am talking about Christ and the Church. However, each one of you also must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband.  (Ephesians 5:31-33)

Marriage is not something humans invented. It is a divine mystery emanating from the heart of God. And defining marriage as a union between a man and a woman is not about hate.  Rather, it is eternally important Truth — Truth that is meant to bless all humanity.  Because marriage is not merely about humans and human love.  It is meant to point beyond mere human relationships to a more essential and awesome reality and destiny and union — the union between the Bridegroom and the Bride.

I had a dream recently:  In the dream, I am at a church where a wedding is supposed to take place.  There is much theological talk going on, but I see no bride or groom.  I woke up, and the Holy Spirit told me that the Church is supposed to be getting ready for a wedding and a marriage, but they have little or no concept of their call as Bride and do not know how to accommodate the Groom.

We (the Church) are not a corporation or a seminary or an organization bound together by mere theology or ritual.  We are the BRIDE of Christ.  And we are headed towards a MARRIAGE.  This whole experience is supposed to be FILLED WITH ROMANCE and a fascination for our incomparable BRIDEGROOM!

Amazing Husband-to-be Jesus… Please send the Holy Spirit to break us out of our passivity, busy-ness, and self-centeredness.  PLEASE tell the Holy Spirit to bring warmth and passionate focus to our cold, distracted hearts and prepare us for your return!
