Imagine a father speaking to his new born baby, expecting the child to understand and heed to his counsel. It will sound like music to the child’s ears. What am I saying? God speaks to us on a daily basis and sometimes it is not in the form we want to hear it so we do not hear him. And just like how the little baby does not understand what his father tells him that is the same way some Christians behave. We do not hear God speak to us. Not because we are babies, but because we do not understand him when he speaks. Let’s remember that we are carriers of God’s message to His children. Sometimes, someone just needs a hug, a hello how are you doing? Or even a simple prayer to make their day. But many of us get so busy we fail to hear Him. God had a message for me to share with His children and He tried to get my attention but I was so busy I did not even realize it till this very moment. He sent the message to me in three different forms and on three different days. This constitutes a dream, trance, and the voice of the Holy Spirit.

I am crucially awakened by the sound of a beautiful trumpet being played. But this was not the sound of a musical interlude or an orchestra. This sounded more like a warning or a prelude to something that was about to happen. Honestly it was so loud and clear I thought the Lord had appeared and judgment day had happened or was happening. I woke up to check my time, looked outside my window to be sure if there were any activities. But everything seemed to be in place so I brushed it aside.

In a dream, I see myself working as a servant in a palace. The palace didn’t look like any I had seen before. I don’t remember when I started working there but I was bonding with the other servants and there was a lot of peace and quiet within that palace. We slept in the room where the King slept but we lay on the floor. And the floor was not like any of the floors I have seen. It was actually really comfortable. In the dream, I woke up to see the King up from his bed, with his back facing us (the other servant and I). So I woke the other servant up to tell him that the King was already up. When the King realized we were up He spoke so loudly, and these were the exact words, “THE TIME IS UP.” The other servant and I started scrambling in a bid to rearrange things in the appropriate way. It looked like we had not expected the King to utter such words especially since we had just woken up. We were startled and started to act clumsily and in a very confused manner. I remember looking for my phone charger in the room. Then my dream ended.

I have a skype call with my supervisor at exactly 8am so I had woken up early to go through the questions and updates I had to give to her. I was a bit tensed because I didn’t want my efforts from the previous night to be fruitless. So I decided to pray for an hour before the meeting. Along the line during the prayer, I saw myself in this same palace that I had seen in my dream the day before. This was not a dream but a trance. It was as though I had been taken to that same palace again. But this time, I saw an angel sitting at the balcony cleaning a trumpet that looked silver in color. As I got closer, I saw how the angel was busy cleaning yet the trumpet was not old or dirty. I was actually wondering why this angel was so focused on cleaning it. I could even see his reflection in the trumpet. This angel was very beautiful, one I had never encountered before. The angels composure and demeanor was one that will not hurt anyone but rather full of gladness and peace. I actually wanted to draw the angel’s attention so we could have a conversation where I could ask questions about the trumpet. But I couldn’t. The trance ended.
I wondered why I had seen this because none of my prayer topics was related to what I saw. I was asking for favour with my supervisor so why am I seeing an angel wiping a trumpet? Then suddenly, it all made sense. The two different encounters added up. The Wednesday event was actually the end of the message. The Friday trance was the beginning of the message. This is how it goes:
I had seen a beautiful angel holding a trumpet, ready and prepared to sound it Revelations 8:6, “Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them [initiating the judgments” – AMP. This was because I was actually a servant in that palace like I mentioned earlier in my dream 1 Corinthians 4:1, “So then, let us [who minister] be regarded as servants of Christ and stewards (trustees, administrators) of the mysteries of God [that He chooses to reveal]” – AMP. That was what I saw before we went to sleep in the Kings room. We then woke up to the King stating explicitly that it was time, time for what Mark 13:13, “However, no one knows the day or hour when these things will happen, not even the angels in heaven or the Son himself. Only the Father knows.” – NLT? Time to actually come to get His children, which was preceeded by the sound of the trumpet that woke me up on Wednesday dawn Revelations 11:6, “Then the seventh angel sounded [his trumpet]; and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom (dominion, rule) of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ; and He will reign forever and ever.” – AMP. The events had now made sense to me. God was giving me a message for His people. The message is that the time is near, and it is truly when no one knows because we woke up not realizing that the King was up before us. We started to panic and act clumsily because we were actually not prepared. We are God’s servants here on this earth and a time is coming when He will be coming back for His children just as Jesus Christ told us before He left. It also reminded me of the story of the ten virgins; where some were unprepared for the coming of the bridegroom (Matthew 25: 1-13).
From the dream I had not prepared for His second coming and had found myself wanting hence the confusion and clumsiness. Then I asked myself, why was the angel sitting at the balcony so cool because the angel can be called upon to sound the trumpet at any time. Then the Holy Spirit explained to me that the angel was actually ready but then was learning how to use the instrument in order to play it accurately when the time was due. The constant cleaning represents how dedicated that angel was to the job at hand. His constant cleaning of the trumpet reminded him of the purpose to be accomplished as he saw his reflection each time he did so 1 Corinthians 15:58, “So, my dear brothers and sisters, be strong and immovable. Always work enthusiastically for the Lord, for you know that nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.” – NLT. So the question remains, how prepared are we? How committed are we to the work God has called us to do: the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20, Mark 16:15-18)? Are we reflecting Jesus Christ even as we do our work Colossians 3:10, “Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.” – NLT. What about the greatest commandment, love, are we exhibiting it 1 Corinthians 13:13, “Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.” – NLT
Or are we focusing more on the cares and worries of the world? Like in this case looking for a phone charger. Are the recent events happening around the world alerting us that the time is near? Or has the enemy filled our hearts with fear and worry? The message is simple, be dedicated to the calling upon your life. Be prepared and always ready because we do not know when he is going to come but one thing is for sure that Jesus Christ is coming back. Our focus should be doing what pleases our Father here on this earth and not to be found confused and distracted. God is ever so merciful and kind that He is still reminding us of the second coming although it is written clearly in the Bible. There have been many messages about Jesus Christ returning but how many of them have you actually taken seriously? If you haven’t, see this as a reminder of His second coming. And let that desire move you to be compassionate, showing love to others so that they can come to know Him too. Its not too late to start now because He has given us another opportunity. We might not have the opportunity tomorrow so lets live each day as though Jesus Christ is coming back for us. Your greatest tool is LOVE, which the Holy Spirit gives freely to us all.
However, if you do not know this man Jesus that I speak about, it’s not too late to know him. He loves you and needs you more than you can imagine, but He needs you to confess and invite Him into your life. That’s the first step to knowing him then after you have said this prayer, find a bible believing church near you so you can grow more in him.
Father Lord, I thank you for this day and for the love you have for me. Lord Jesus, I thank you for coming to the earth to die and save me. I thank you that you still love me despite all the wrongs I have done. Today, I confess that I am sinner and humbly come before you asking for forgiveness of sins. Please wash me clean of every iniquity and filth. I am asking that you come and stay in my heart and be King over my life. Come and take control over my life because I cannot do anything without you. Please write my name in the book of Life so that I may enter into your Holy Kingdom. Thank you for coming to stay in my heart. In Jesus’ name I have prayed. Amen!!!
Once you have said this prayer and believe in your heart that He has come to stay, He will then begin to do His Good works through and in you. God loves you very much and He needs you to extend that love to others as well.
