The Food For Thought – It’s A Family Affair: “THE CLARION CALL”!
Greetings my brothers IN THE NAME OF OUR L-RD Yeshua/Jesus the Christ! I pray all of you are well and in good health! In Good Health, what does that means? Are we afraid to talk and discuss our MEN Health Issues? ED, PAS, BP, Mental Issues, and other health issues where we think we are the only one or just SCARED, to discuss it for FEAR of ?????
This month teaching is coming from Apostle Daryl Hackworth out of Atlanta, GA. Most of us already know him, he has spoken to us before and he has agreed to lead us this Monday night. Please read and come enthused on hearing his teaching. Bring questions!
THE CLARION CALL!
What is the Clarion Call?
A strongly expressed demand or request for action. The actual term “clarion” is not expressed in most versions of the Bible. However, the term is often used in today’s congregational settings. There are several examples of a call being sent forth by Yahweh, although none of these are referred to as a “Clarion Call.” Most often, the scripture makes reference to the sound of a trumpet(shofar).
Joshua 6:5 It shall come to pass, when they make a long blast with the ram’s horn, and when you hear the sound of the trumpet, that all the people shall shout with a great shout; then the wall of the city will fall down flat. And the people shall go up every man straight before him.
Exodus 19:19 And when the blast of the trumpet sounded long and became louder and louder, Moses spoke, and YAHWEH answered him by voice.
Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s Day, and I heard behind me a loud voice, as of a trumpet
What is the purpose of the “Clarion Call?” Ans: getting people’s attention i.e. the calling of a holy assembly, a warning of danger, or the arrival of the king. A call to war.
Joel 2:1 Blow 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 is coming, For it is at hand.
Matthew 24:31 And He will send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they will gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
WHY are some not hearing the Clarion Call?
1 Corinthians 14:8 For if the trumpet makes an uncertain sound, who will prepare for battle?
Matthew 13:13-15 Therefore I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand. And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: ‘Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive: For the hearts of this people have grown dull. Their ears are hard of hearing, And their eyes they have closed, Lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears, Lest they should understand with their hearts and turn, So that I should heal them.’
Ezekiel 33:1-6 Again the word of the Lord came to me, saying, “Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and say to them: ‘When I bring the sword upon a land, and the people of the land take a man from their territory and make him their watchman, when he sees the sword coming upon the land, if he blows the trumpet and warns the people, then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet and does not take warning, if the sword comes and takes him away, his blood shall be on his own head. He heard the sound of the trumpet, but did not take warning; his blood shall be upon himself. But he who takes warning will save his life. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet, and the people are not warned, and the sword comes and takes any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at the watchman’s hand.’
Four Hebraic words are invoked in the term “Clarion”
- Chazaq (kha-zak)- strong, mighty, loud
- Gawdowl (ga-dole)- great, high, mighty, loud, large, important
- Zakah (za-ka)-clean, clear, pure
- Yaqar -precious, clear, easily understood
The Hebraic word for “Call” is qara (kaw-raw)-to call, call out, recite, read, cry out, proclaim, utter a loud sound, to summon, invite, call and commission, appoint, call and endow.

How about reading and bringing a few literature/(scriptures), thoughts and concerns to the conference call with you each Monday night so we can explore the WORD together. Let us continue to grow and mature daily in the knowledge, wisdom, and understand the “WORD”, our L-rd and Savior Jesus the Christ (Yeshua being His Hebrew Name) left for us to follow. Praise Abba our Father and above all—do not forget to pray!
