A Clear Trumpet

Blog

Scripture likens God’s voice to a trumpet, a clear and distinguishable sound. The message He intends is a clear trumpet. Our desire for the prophetic ministry of Shirley Weaver Ministries is to clearly speak the Lord’s message to our culture and world.

1 Corinthians 14:8, Acts 20:20-21

An Authorized Message From God

Did you know that God gives you a message that he has authorized for you to speak? Every believer has that, an authorized message. So it’s not something that we developed really. It’s something God gives us.

Paul was imprisoned because he was carrying a message that would light up the heart. That it would hit with dynamite. That it would resonate in the hearing of the hearer. Paul prayed for that. In Colossians 4:3 Paul prayed for an entrance and an utterance: “I pray that every time I open my mouth I’ll be able to make Christ plain as day to those who are hearing what I’m saying. I pray that every time I open my mouth I’ll be able to make Christ plain as day to those who hear, to the hearer.”

You and I have a message that is like fire that God Himself has authorized to be released through us.You have an authorized message. I have one. The next person has one. We don’t necessarily say and do the same thing. It’s the message God gives us. But at the end of the day you’ll find that message is the same for everyone. It leads to the same place, back to the Messiah, back to Almighty God, back to the leading of the Holy Spirit. The authorized message. So besides the right teaching and an authorized message, the believer needs to possess this.

And you think about it. Observable spiritual authority. Remember in the Word, the disciples were perceived as unlearned men. It was realized they hadn’t gone to seminary. They hadn’t been train. They had not sat under the teaching of the religious leaders and the scribes, and yet they had authority. They were not educated or highly developed culturally people, but they instead had been with Jesus. That was the bottom line. They had been with Jesus. So their words had authority. It was observable. It was something that was seen. It’s like a presence that you see on a person’s life.

We get that from Acts 4:13, the Passion Translation I love says this. “Then they began to understand the effect that Jesus had had on these disciples simply because they were with Him.” Simply because they had spent time with Him. That applies to you and me. When we spend time with the Lord, we come away with something that’s observable by other people. It’s not of our own doing. It’s something that comes from having been in the presence of the Lord.

You Can Never Stop God’s Plan

A relationship with Almighty God can empower you to accomplish things you never thought possible. The believer’s leadership role is a catalyst for biblical outcomes that impact God’s love for everyone everywhere. It harnesses confidence that expects impossible outcomes, even supernatural interventions. When the pace speeds up in the spirit to which you are called, then we can run ahead of anything that we previously thought possible or anything really that we even believed. I’m thinking specifically of the passage in 1 Kings 18 and especially verse 46. The word says here, “Then the hand of the Lord came upon Elijah.” So the hand of the Lord came upon Elijah. And he, Elijah ran ahead of the  king’s chariots.

The verse tells us that Elijah outran the horse-drawn chariots and was back at the city ahead of the king, the chariots, the horses, everybody. I love it. It even says that as he began to run, he lifted his skirts and tuck them into the waist, the belt at his waist. Meaning, that would’ve been the dress in that day. So he was ready for a supernatural outcome. And he was intentional as he did that. So what is God saying? I think he’s saying three things:

  1. The presence of God. And you remember in the Old Testament in the passage there in Exodus where Moses said to Almighty God, “If your presence does not go with us, then we will not go.” And the implied intention there is cannot go. We can’t go without your presence. The presence of God is everything. And we even learn as we grow in the faith to practice the presence of the Lord. Intentionally sit in his presence so that you can be with Him, hear with Him. So the presence of God.
  2. Alignment with Him. If you can be aligned with Him, that means you can be out of alignment with Him, right? You want to be aligned with the Lord and not distracted by anything that comes to deter you, weaken your resolve, that kind of thing. So once you’ve heard Him in the presence of God, you intentionally align with Him. The presence of God and alignment.
  3. Why are we doing this? We’re not just doing this for today. We are doing this with a view of what’s ahead. There’s a day ahead. There is a prophesied day that is ahead because we’re living in the end of the end times. We’re living at the last of the last of days. Some people speak of the end of the world. That’s not what I’m referring to. I’m speaking of the end of an age. So we’re preparing for the church’s role, what the church will look like. This is why we practice the presence of God. It’s why we are intentionally aligned with Him. We are preparing for a day that is different from today or yesterday. And just one last point here, did you know that nothing can stop the will of God? Nothing.

Now, people manage to entangle themselves in ways that delay or circumvent God’s plan or it seems that way on the surface. But the truth is even that kind of foolishness does not, cannot, never will stop God’s divine plan. So the emphasis is to inspire bold confidence in God. And again, we want His presence. We intentionally align with Him and we prepare our lives for the day that is ahead for everything that God pours out onto the earth.

It is so important to build into our lives the habit of intentionally aligning with Him. We intentionally want to mature. That means not stay the same, not remain childlike. We move from praying small prayers to praying big prayers. In other words, we grow in our faith.

Patience

The Lord is more patient with us than we can comprehend. But patience is not something that we always extend to others—we need patience from the Lord and others but less often show patience.  
 
We see the ordeal others go through and may impatiently wonder why it’s taking so long. But the Lord, who always sees and watches, always knows and foreknows is patiently standing by.   
 
Maturity teaches that patience is part of wisdom; despite the wait or delay in achieving results, once I really know what God wants, wisdom will not settle for less.
 
Leadership, too, is measured by the ability to patiently wait. We are to lead with confidence and patiently expect all who follow to join us at the finish line. 
 
“The end of a thing is better than its beginning; The patient in spirit is better than the proud in spirit.” (Ecclesiastes 7:8)
 
“Patient endurance is what you need now, so that you will continue to do God’s will. Then you will receive all that he has promised.” (Hebrews 10:36)
 
Amen.

Appointed Things

“Of the increase of His government and peace there shall be no end, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice…. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.” (Isaiah 9:7)
 
God appoints people for particular tasks, each person gifted by the Lord to accomplish those God-given assignments. He is both the giver of the gift and governor over the task. His path is peace, and His blessing of peace connects the paths on which life-assignments are established.
 
It is important to agree with His government. When we do, divine government displaces the world’s confusion and the driving force of the world’s way of doing things with excellence and order and peace! Best of all, His government over appointed things in our lives and the corresponding fruit of peace produced is ever increasing!
 
Amen.

A National Word

Principle: The entrance of negative spiritual forces includes negative spiritual strategies that build upon conditions of loss, fear of loss, or imagined loss. From the highest levels in the nation and down—top to bottom—something “wrong-spirited” has entered. Overwhelmingly negative circumstances now take hold. If these forces are not (quickly) refuted, their wrong influences make decisions for us.

Setting: When thinking and choices gravitate to something or someone other than Almighty God—times when overriding negatives flood the atmosphere—a door opens to something we could not have imagined; and those seasoned in spiritual matters will tell you, that spiritual door must be closed spiritually before it can be closed practically in a natural sense. And it must be closed now. Sooner rather than later.  

Solution: Each person—the individual—is responsible for his or her personal share in the big picture. If wrong spirits influence the group, for example on a national level, those in every sector have authority within their personal sector to stop the influence. The cumulative effect is Biblical: every person supplies individual parts until peace is restored. Nothing missing, nothing broken. That’s the plan. 

“And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, “Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.” And it happened, when our enemies heard that it was known to us, and that God had brought their plot to nothing, that all of us returned to the wall, everyone to his work. So it was, from that time on, that half of my servants worked at construction, while the other half held the spears, the shields, the bows, and wore armor; and the leaders were behind all the house of Judah. Those who built on the wall, and those who carried burdens, loaded themselves so that with one hand they worked at construction, and with the other held a weapon. Every one of the builders had his sword girded at his side as he built. And the one who sounded the trumpet was beside me.” Nehemiah 4:14-18

Amen.
