Baal Busters, Part 2
In the present politically-correct climate, Christians have become a target of ridicule, harassment, and legal nightmares. Those who stand firm in the faith find ourselves threatened by those hostile to the Bible. Yet we have been duly admonished to “earnestly contend for the faith once delivered unto the saints.” A contender is a combatant in a fight or contest, much like Gideon and Elijah were as they stood against wicked leaders and Baal worshipers. After winning his contest against the followers of Baal, Gideon was renamed “Jerubaal” which means “Baal contender.” We might say, “Baal Buster”! Later the prophet Elijah held a contest on Mount Caramel against 450 prophets of Baal, slaying them all. Wicked King Ahab called him Israel's “Troublemaker.” We are in the days of Elijah, and we are the Elijahs of our day. We too are called to be Baal Busters & Troublemakers!

It’s not a brass trumpet, but a shofar—a ram's horn. There are 4 different blasts: One was long, increasing in loudness, the one that sounded on Mt. Sinai when God spoke. God came down, and Moses went up, symbolic of the rapture of the saints. Rabbis say that Satan can’t tell the difference between the shofar & God’s voice. In Revelation, John confirmed God’s voice sounded like a shofar saying, “Come up here” typifying the rapture. Paul called it “the last trump” that will wake up the dead in Christ & summon the living to be caught up together to meet the Lord in the air. It is not the seventh trumpet of Rev. 8 as the “mid-trib” stance claims—meaning the living Church will go through the first half of the Tribulation. We have been delivered from the wrath to come!
