Blowing a Trumpet in Zion
Is Judgment Day scary? Yes! No one should be under any illusions about that. Scripture is filled with dire warnings, such as this from the prophet Joel:
Blow ye the trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in my holy mountain: let all the inhabitants of the land tremble: for the day of the Lord cometh, for it is nigh at hand; a day of darkness and of gloominess, a day of clouds and of thick darkness, as the morning spread upon the mountains: a great people and a strong; there hath not been ever the like, neither shall be any more after it, even to the years of many generations. (Joel 2:1-2 KJV)
How should we approach the Day of the Lord? With sober minds, of course, but also with hopeful expectation. After all, it is the day when the Creator sets everything in order. The scary part is that He will do this according to His definition of order, not according to any of ours! The wise will seek to understand the Lord’s ways, and remain humbly teachable so that He may bring loving (even if painful!) correction instead of wrathful judgment.
Raymond Myers, the “Singing Tallit,” has been seeking to understand the Lord’s ways for most of his life. He has also done his best to live out what he has learned, and to share it freely with others. As a gifted musician, he puts many of his Scripture-based observations into music, which everyone may access on his YouTube channel.
But that’s not all! Ray has a degree in Philosophy which, oddly enough, has equipped him to understand the cultural influences not only on our perceptions of the Scriptures, but on their development and application, particularly in the First Century Greco-Roman-Judean world. This, too, is something he shares freely, not only on his YouTube channel, but on his web page (https://www.singingtallit.com/).
Ray joins us from South Georgia, where he and his wife have opened their home to many children, both their own and foster children in need of loving care. Our visit with him likely will go in many unexpected directions, so listen carefully as we take our next journey on The Remnant Road.
The Remnant Road, with co-hosts Al McCarn, Mike Clayton, Barry Phillips, and Hanoch Young is the Monday edition of the Hebrew Nation Morning Show. You can listen live at 11:00–1:00 EST, 8:00-10:00 PST at http://hebrewnationonline.com/, and on podcast at any time.
