Numbers 10:10 Make Your Rejoicing Heard

Trumpeters

Also at your times of rejoicing–your appointed festivals and New Moon feasts–you are to sound the trumpets over your burnt offerings and fellowship offerings, and they will be a memorial for you before your God. I am the LORD your God. Numbers 10:10

The world knows how to make their rejoicing about something good known to the rest of the world. Watch when their favorite football team wins the winning goal at a major game. The fans go crazy with shouting and jumping around. Social media is blown up with the news of what happened. It is no secret what happened or what is going on.

This not only happens with sports fans, but with many other major events in life. Great news is passed on very quickly with a loud noise.

God had told the Israelites that when they were rejoicing at one of the various set festivals, they were to blow the trumpets. The trumpet is a very loud sounding instrument that can be heard from a long ways off. This was done with not just one trumpet, but many trumpets, increasing the noise level.

The noise of the trumpets would be heard far from the campsite. The enemy would be able to hear it. The world would know that something is happening.

In the church, there are some people who are very quiet about the good things God is doing in their life. They do celebrate what God is doing, but under hushed tones, not broadcasting the good news.

This is often done out of fear of offending someone or disturbing someone else. They do not want to rock the boat at all.

Yet, the joy of what God is doing or has done should overwhelm a person to the point of wanting to tell the world about it. This news can be just a simple healing, to major touch or move from God.

When you are rejoicing over what God has done in your life, make some noise. Let others know what God has done and is doing. This can be an encouragement to other believers and it can be a witness to the world of who God is.

Do not let your rejoicing be done in secret only, under your breath. Blow the trumpet and let everyone know. God is lifted up by your praise. Do not be ashamed to rejoice out loud as you remember God’s work in your life.

I pray today that you will know what God has done for you; that you will rejoice in the Lord for His mighty works; that you will let the world know what God is doing; and that you will encourage others with what God has done.

    After the recent attacks on a Jewish graves and houses, last week, once again the People of God were reminded that anti-Semitism is growing again in West-Europe. In many Jewish households this brings the discussion on the table to stay more quiet and to take care not to stand out too loud.

    Though those who love God should recognise all good what He has done to them and should not be afraid to tell others about it. Fear may come into our houses but our love for God and our hope for the better future should make us strong enough to tell others of the Plan of God and ho everybody should come united under the elohim’s Guidance.

    For sure those who live with the hope for a better future in the Kingdom of God, should not stay in the dark or rejoice in secret, but should share with many their hope and joy and show the world how the Most High Elohim expects more people to come to Him and to be blessed, spreading the peace by the love for others worth of God.

    For sure, we do not have to be ashamed or to be afraid. Let us , who love God, all unite and blow the trumpet and let everyone know. Let us show the world Who God is and what He wants from us. And let us lift up by God by our praise, not being ashamed to rejoice out loud as we remember God’s work in our life.
