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.”
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 perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality.”
The Scene: Horns of different types that are mentioned throughout the Holy Scriptures; horns of many kinds were used to gain the attention of the people for various reasons.
Numbers 10:1-2 ” The Lord said to Moses, “Make two trumpets of hammered silver and use them for calling the community together and for having the camp set out.”
The assembly horns were also used as battle horns and to be sounded after Israel’s victories; also as a memorial to God.
Numbers 10: 8-10 “The sons of Aaron, the priests, are to blow the trumpets. This is to be a lasting ordinance for you and the generations to come. When you go into battle in your own land against an enemy who is oppressing you, sound a blast of the trumpets. Then you will be remembered by the Lord your God and rescued from your enemies. Also at your time of rejoicing– your appointed feasts and New Moon festivals– 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.”
To Christians there are horns that have special meaning: bringing hope and the announcement of our Lord’s return and of His promises to have, in heaven, eternal life with Him. God’s people are to rule with Jesus during the millennial reign.
