For the Lord Himself
will descend from Heaven
with a shout of command,
with the archangel's call,
and with the sound of the trumpet...
[1 Thessalonians 4:16]
****************************
"I don't like trumpets, Lord.
I think they're too loud."

[NOD.]

"How come You're not
gonna' come down with a harp?
I thought all angels were
really good at them."

"No."

"So, not all angels are
good with them?
Or, 'no' - You're
won't change You mind
about the harp?"

"I said,
no,
child."

"You say no a whole
lot to me, Lord;
You know that?
How come?"

"Cuz'."

"I like how You talk
natural to me, Lord:
nothing fancy."

[NOD.]

"Anyhow, so what's with
this shout? How is
anybody going to hear You?"

"What do you mean, child."

"Well, just a little shout:
what's that gonna' do?
(silence)
I guess if You have one
of those horn-things
that referees use at
football games, that
might work."

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"Or, what about via
satillite?"

"Watch your spelling, child."

"Yeah, You're right,
Lord. I spelled it
wrong. So, is that
how You're going
to project Your shout -
with a satellite?"

"No, My precious."

"Well, the earth's really
big, Lord. I don't think
a little shout's gonna' do it."

"I understand, child."

"How about angel Michael using
a guitar? That's a lot more
sweet and pretty.
I'm not talking about an
electric guitar, Lord.
You know: the other type."

[SMILE.]

"A trumpet's just not very
soothing, Lord."

"No."

"You're being kinda'
close-mouthed about
this whole thing,
aren't You?"

[SILENCE.]

"Maybe, I've got a wrong
picture about this Day,
Lord."

[SILENCE]

"Maybe, it's not gonna'
be all this pretty
singing, and, like,
calm stuff."

[SILENCE.]

"Hey, Lord? Suppose
I'm in my house, when
You come, and I don't
hear You?
Suppose, like,
I've got the
radio on - or,
I'm on the phone,
or somethin'?
Or, suppose I get
back my cable,
and I've got the TV on?"

"This doesn't matter, child.
You only have to listen."
*************************
With trumpets and
the sound of the horn,
make a joyful noise
before the King,
the Lord!
[Psalms 98:6]
