“40 And all the people came up after him, and the people piped with pipes, and rejoiced with great joy, so that the earth rent with the sound of them. 41 And Adonijah and all the guests that [were] with him heard [it] as they had made an end of eating. And when Joab heard the sound of the trumpet, he said, Wherefore [is this] noise of the city being in an uproar?”
Brothers and Sisters, Where is the Sound that Jesus Is King, that Jesus Is Lord and that Jesus Is The Savior? Too many of you Walk In Fear of The World and what it will do to you if you Make A Sound about Our Lord Jesus. Too many of have Faith, but not in Jesus that He is Lord Over All Things, but your Faith lies on Yourself and Your Accomplishments and Other People.
You go into church and you play music to Bring In The Presence Of Jesus and The Holy Spirit…but Where is the Sound Of Celebration after church? Why do the People that are within your city Complain Not For Your Celebration that Jesus Is Lord?
In the Scriptures above the Hebrews Celebrated so loud that all surrounding neighbors heard it, this brought forth the question “What Is This NOISE”, What Is This UPROAR. Too many of you Hide your Light behind closed doors, so unless someone was to Enter In they would not even know except that it is a building for christians.
“14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. 15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.”
“What I tell you in darkness, [that] speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, [that] preach ye upon the housetops.”
We are not to be Silent, but we are to Proclaim, PROCLAIM Jesus AS King, AS Lord and AS Savior…To THE WORLD!!! Your Silence is Deafening in so much the World thinks we are a joke to be laughed at, thinking we are lunatics, that we Believe in a God, Jesus The Son to save us from ourselves on a Mental Base. But Jesus Expects us to Proclaim Him in so much that it Stirs those who do not know.
So, How are we to make the Silence go away? The Sound that we make should be so Resounding that it causes those around us to be Uncomfortable In OUR PRESENCE, Jesus Within Us. The World is, has been, Dying without the Knowledge of Jesus, because those who are Saved By Grace choose to be Silent, Fearing them that could Kill them for their Beliefs.
Jesus said we are not to Fear them that could kill us from this World, but to Fear Him, that is, Jesus, who can Destroy not only your Physical Body, but also Your Soul.
“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
There was a time in my Life that in a city that I used to Live in would do a March For Jesus through the City Proclaiming Jesus As Lord and Savior. It was combined to a number of churches coming together As THE Church Making A Loud Noise, Sounding The Shofar for All To Hear The Proclamation!!! But because of church divisions, because of Pride, because of those Not Willing to do so anymore because it was too hard, this pageant Died. The Proclamation that Jesus Is Lord Died at The Hands Of Gods Children!
There was a time in my Life that Promise Keepers would set our Region on Fire with the Proclamation and holding meetings in the Chiefs Stadium at times Loud enough to hear outside the stadium for All To Hear…it Died too.
Our Lord Jesus sits upon The Throne, has been given All Power, All Authority and is Ready and Willing to come to His Brides side in Proclamation that He Is Lord and Savior, but the problem is, that Jesus is not really the Lord Of YOUR THRONE, YOU ARE!
When the Walls of Jericho fell, the People, that is, The Men, in One Accord, Marched around the City, Praising God. The City knew they were there, but they thought they were safe From God’s People, safe From God, but when The People were in One Accord, Obedient To God, the Walls of Jericho Fell because of a Sound that God The Father said to make. If they would not have been in One Accord , if they had not Shouted In One Accord, if they would not have been Obedient to God’s Word, the Walls Of Jericho would have Never Fallen, but those in side would have Mocked Them and God…do you Hear that Mocking Today?
Let me give a Resounding Noise Of Proclamation That Jesus Is Lord. When I awake Every Day, I Choose to Proclaim Jesus Is Lord Of MY LIFE FIRST. My wife knows not to bother me during this time and does not. So, my First Proclamation is To Jesus that He Is Lord, my Second Proclamation is My House Knows that Jesus Is MY LORD. Then thoughout the day, I Proclaim Jesus Is Lord to others, then at sleep time, my Wife and I Proclaim Jesus Is Lord.
Our Sound Of Proclamation should be Resounding though out Our Lives All The Day Long. Our surrounding neighbors Know we are Blood Bought, by Word and Deed. But see there is another Ingredient to The Sound Of This Proclamation…I DO NOT CARE WHAT OTHERS LIKE or THINK OF ME!
All of Israel and King David, a man after God’s Heart, Sang and Danced before God and For God, and did not Care Who Saw Them or Heard Them…
“28 Thus all Israel brought up the ark of the covenant of the LORD with shouting, and with sound of the cornet, and with trumpets, and with cymbals, making a noise with psalteries and harps. 29 And it came to pass, [as] the ark of the covenant of the LORD came to the city of David, that Michal the daughter of Saul looking out at a window saw king David dancing and playing: and she despised him in her heart.”
Too many of you Fear that if you let anyone know that Jesus is Lord, that you will lose Your Job, Your Friends and even Your House, but see the Foolishness of this, it is Jesus that Provides. It is Only Through Jesus the we should have Friends and if Men would be The Head as God has set, their House would be Saved!
The Sound that I make, Proclaims Jesus Is King, Is Lord and Is Savior, to My Wife, Our Children, Work, Neighbors it makes no difference whom they are!!! We should be Joyful, filled with Praise Over Flowing that Jesus Has Saved Us in so much that Darkness Flees!
“Blessed [is] the people that know the joyful sound: they shall walk, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.”
“7 And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped? 8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle?”
What do You Sound Like? Is there a Distinction to The Sound You Make? For there is but one Sound that The House Of God, The Blood Bought should be making, that is, Jesus Is King, Is Lord and Is Savior for All The World To Hear and let them Hear It With Distinction that it is Jesus Whom We Live For!
The Church should be making a Sound so loud, every day, morning till night, that We Shake The World Into Repentance!!! Let no one be confused, there are Two Sounds that I am speaking of, one, that when we gather together let there be Music So Loud, that those who are outside Can Hear and Wonder. The other Sound is what we make as a Blood Bought in our every day Walk With Jesus. If we do not Make The Right Sound, then how will the World Know We Are Blood Bought, that Jesus Is Savior, Is Lord and Is King!
Let The Sound that we make be Loud and Distinct! Let it be a Song that can never be forgotten, but Forever Heard!! Let Our Lord Jesus Rise Up In Applause To His Bride that We Sing The Song Of Redemption To The World!!!
It brings Attention,
It Demands Attention,
To those who have Ears To Hear!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
