Mark 9:1 ” And He said to them, ‘I tell you the truth, some who are standing here will not taste death before they see the kingdom of God come with power.”
The Scene: Horns of different kinds are mentioned throughout the Holy Scriptures; horns of many kinds were used to gain the attention of the people for various reasons, such as assembly, festivals, marching to battle, gratitude to God for a victory in battle.
(See examples below)
1 Corinthians 14:8 ” Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle.”
Leviticus 23:33“The Lord said to Moses, ‘Say to the Israelites: On the first day of the seventh month you are to have a day of rest, a sacred assembly commemorated with trumpet blasts. This was the Feast of Trumpets.
1 Corinthians 15:51-53 “Listen , I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed–in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the imperishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.”
Numbers 10:1-4 ” The Lord said to Moses,’Make two trumpets of hammered silver, use them for calling the community together and for having camp set out. When both are sounded the whole community is to assemble before the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. If only one is sounded, the leaders–the heads of the clans of Israel–are to be assembled before you.'”
The two silver trumpets were assembly horns; also, they were to be used as battle horns and after Israel’s victories they were used as memorial to God, for having given them the victory. (See Numbers 5-10)
To the Christians, not just the Jews, these horns have special meanings; Which bring hope of our Lord’s return and of the promises of having an eternal time with Jesus in heaven.
God’s people are listening for those trumpet sounds, looking to that great day when they will rule and reign, during the millennium, with Him.
