Two Trumpets

"Make thee two trumpets of silver; of a whole piece shalt thou make them: that thou mayest use them for the calling of the assembly, and for the journeying of the camps." - Numbers 10:2 KJV

Two trumpets of silver... not one... two trumpets. The Hebrew word is Chatsotserah (Strong's H2689) and it is different word than the one used for a curved horn made of bone. If you look up when the word was used we see that they blew these trumpets at different times for different reasons.

"And if ye go to war in your land against the enemy that oppresseth you, then ye shall blow an alarm with the trumpets; and ye shall be remembered before the LORD your God, and ye shall be saved from your enemies. Also in the day of your gladness, and in your solemn days, and in the beginnings of your months, ye shall blow with the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; that they may be to you for a memorial before your God: I am the LORD your God." - Numbers 10:9-10 KJV

"And David and all Israel played before God with all their might, and with singing, and with harps, and with psalteries, and with timbrels, and with cymbals, and with trumpets." - 1 Chronicles 13:8 KJV

"It came even to pass, as the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the LORD; and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of musick, and praised the LORD, saying, For he is good; for his mercy endureth for ever: that then the house was filled with a cloud, even the house of the LORD;" - 2 Chronicles 5:13 KJV

One man can't play two trumpets.

People are going to experience a calling when there is more than one witness.The straight silver witness of the Gospel is a two or more witness. The calling is not a duty. It is a sound that goes out and says there is trouble and reminds us to be on alert. It reminds us to sing, dance and rejoice. It is a sound that is mirrored and not solitary.

You are called and so am I.

"Who saved us and called us to a holy calling, not because of our works but because of his own purpose and grace, which he gave us in Christ Jesus before the ages began, and which now has been manifested through the appearing of our Savior Christ Jesus, who abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel," - 2 Timothy 1:9-10 ESV

"Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery. For surely it is not angels that he helps, but he helps the offspring of Abraham. Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For because he himself has suffered when tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession" - Hebrews 2:14-18, 3:1 ESV

Salvation brought us in and opened our ears now we recognize the sound of the straight silver trumpets of grace.

I want to be about His things today not mine. My message is the message that others have. It is not a solitary witness. It is a clean open sound that echos off the mountainside and says, 'Rejoice because it is finished. The sacrifice has been made.'

We share a holy calling. Alone we are sons and daughters and that is a wonderful thing but together we are called out ones and there is dancing and rejoicing.
