May the Trumpet Sound

The sound of the trumpet had many uses in Biblical times. It summoned for war, announced royal decrees, it called the people to the holy festivals, and it was used to praise the Lord. However, one of the most significant uses, for its allegoric value, was for the watchman.

The watchman's trumpet sounded to warn the danger that was threatening the city. Its sound had to be clear and powerful. The loss would be too great if it were not used properly. The watchman, for his part, had to be an attentive, diligent man whose sight was penetrating even up to the horizon. The entire city entrusted their fate in the responsible duty that this man was performing.

Thus, in spiritual terms, the watchman and the opportune sounding of their trumpet are representative of the prophet and of the prophetic word, respectively. God's word, placed in the prophet's mouth alerts God's people. His call, therefore, is high; his responsibility, great.

In this issue we wanted to approach this important matter. We pray to the Lord that these messages will help to wake the drowsy watchmen, to encourage those who, being misunderstood and rejected, have been making their voice heard; and that, finally, all the children of God would be convinced of their personal responsibility as God's prophets.

We are also delighted to present, from this issue onwards, the concretion of a dream: the translation of the central articles of "Aguas Vivas" into English, which from this date will start being available on our webpage. This work is being achieved through Andrew Webb and with the help of James and Robert Huskey. Thanks be to God for his gifts of love!.
