Man-Fearing Spirits, Part 2
People who are troubled by a man-fearing spirit, know how powerful it can be to try to intimidate and bring you into submission to a domineering person. Many Christians are troubled—even bound, by the spirit of intimidation, and are easily brought into subjection by those who abuse their spiritual authority, or who are false teachers and prophets. Apostle Peter was beset by the fear of man, and as much as he loved his Lord, and was even warned by Jesus, he still denied Him three times in one night, because he feared for himself. On the day of Pentecost, Peter was delivered from this spirit and boldly delivered the inaugural sermon of the Church. He walked in power and authority in the Church. But years later, he was confronted with this spirit again.

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!
