The Bible Doctrine of Hope, Part 2
Praying the prayer of faith begins the process once you have laid claim to a promise in God's Word. But when there is a delay, as there often is, you can cast away your confidence and fail to receive the reward of your faith. This is where hope comes into play: that patient, confident expectation of the fulfillment of the promise. Hope is the anchor of the soul that makes a believer's faith in God's promises unsinkable. It is so rich that the rapture of the church is called the Blessed Hope, and every believer knows this is not a wish or an uncertain expectation!

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!
