trumpet in Zion, and sound an alarm in My holy mountain! Joel 2:1
Christians often sing a song by the same title
in our churches and we are jubilant as we sing it however, we must remember
that this scripture is a charge
to prepare for battle. To “blow the trumpet” is to warn
Israel that the enemy is at the door!

Him no rest till He establishes and till He makes Jerusalem a praise in the
I encourage you to join Diana and me and thousands of other Christians as we gather in Washington D.C. to show
our support for Israel and the Jewish people at a very critical time in their
history! We must show record support! We can all do our part to change the
hearts of men and women in leadership in their support of Israel.
now, then when and if not us, then who?
