That, along with the fact that the reference in Matt 24:36 is not set in the context of our rapture, but is instead referring to the circumstances surrounding His Second Coming for the start of the MK (meaning, it pertains to Israel). People often make the correlation ("no man knows the day or hour" [noting this is a specific date]) but, I believe, mistake the application (mistaking this text to be about our rapture, when it's a Second Coming reference instead).
Are you saying that because Joel 2 mentions a "shofar" that this means the day of the Lord will be heralded with it? I don't see the text that way. It seems to me that Joel 2 is just saying that the shofar will be in it (IN the day of the Lord / trib... but not BEFORE it / heralding it). I'd like to hear your thoughts... or at least clarify what you were saying, so I can grasp your meaning. Thanks again!
Ok, thanks TRex2. I do believe that "the day of the Lord" starts with the beginning of the 7-yr tribulation period ('darkness'), rather than starting at [and consisting only of] His 2nd Coming to the earth (though that, plus the MK, are also included in this phrase... depending on the context). It comes "as a thief in the night" to unfold on the earth over the course of a long period of time.
not to be sensationalist or anything
could there be a foreshadowing of the trumpet sound
i.e. strange noises like a train noises you hear in the middle of nowhere
there has been debate that some folks around the usa
who are claiming they are hearing odd trumpet or train noises sounds in the middle of nowhere
in these last days before the Tribulation Period
felt like asking on here cause I know someone who has heard them
and is it possible that strange noises some are hearing could there be a foreshadowing of the trumpet sound
For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also (Matthew 6:21)

my i-phone makes a train whistle noise every time I get a text!!!! And, the volume is up all the way so I can be sure to hear it! Oops - sorry about that.............
