The Last Blast, Part 1
In his letters to the Corinthians and Thessalonians, Paul described the rapture of the church taking place at the sound of "the last trump," when the dead in Christ shall rise first, and the living Christ shall be caught up together with them in the air to meet the Lord. In Hebrew, it is called "a shofar," which is made from a ram's horn.
The shofar blasts had four different sounds that signified different actions, but the final blast was loud and long. This is what they heard when God spoke on Mount Sinai in the wilderness. John wrote in Revelation that God's voice is the sound of the shofar. Some rabbis claim Satan hates the sound of the shofar, because he cannot tell the difference between the sound of the shofar and God's voice! When he hears it, he trembles.
Very soon. God is going to sound the last blast, and we will be out of here!

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!
