Meet Jack and Peggy Kennedy, their ministry is all about the “sound of His voice,” as presented in the preached word, the written word, and in prophetic encouragements. “The Sovereign Lord has given me an instructed tongue to know the word that sustains the weary…He awakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught.” (Isaiah 50:4)
In Numbers 10, there is the introduction of two silver trumpets used to mark the movement of the camp of the Lord…Jack and Peggy together are “TWO SILVER TRUMPETS” that the Lord has set among His people to announce His heart, His purposes, and His ways. The “sound” of these trumpets is for movement of the camp, for leadership communications, for celebration, and for signalling divine help in times of war.
Peggy sends out bi-weekly “Hear The Sound” directly to your email.
Here is a sample of what you will receive when you sign up.
“But may they who love you be like the sun when it rises in its strength.”
I heard the words clearly: “strength to strength”. Those were good words to hear from Psalm 84:7 in the middle of the night for my own personal application. I had no way of knowing what was about to happen in our nation. Two days later the Lord added to the word from Judges 5:31. And now, after our own nation was ushered into a new reality through the terrorist attack in our capital, these words have risen from very meaningful personal encouragement to a declaration for our now season: “sunrise strength.” That is reinforced by the fact that I originally heard the “strength word” while in our nation’s capital.
The Judges 5:31 declaration is given against the backdrop of the boasting of the enemy. Such boasting and any other potential intimidation need not necessitate us drawing back, shrinking back to presumed safety, or focusing on self-preservation rather than on pursuing His purposes. Rather, the promise of the Lord begins by saying that those who love the Lord are different. We do not give in to “sunset
faith”. Rather, in the face of any threat or even personal demand and trauma, we are being granted sunrise strength!
Flowing out of this declaration have been very meaningful confirming references to
“strength“. Suddenly the word is all over the landscape! In Hebrews 11:34 (KJV) there is a descriptive phrase of a company of overcomers who “…out of weakness were made strong”. That opens up the possibility for all of us to be empowered. Triumph is not reserved as a trophy for a few supermen and superwomen. Rather,
those who love the Lord are empowered for victory. The Amplified Bible gives a confirming description to Psalm 84:5 which is just before that original phrase “strength to strength”. The “strength” of verse 5 is the delightful Hebrew word “chayil”: “…strength to strength [increasing in victorious power].” We are not
declining but rather gathering strength. Our forward commitment may feel fragile but by it we are propelled forward with His commitment to us of empowering strength. Shrinking back or self-preserving retreat is not necessary! We can reject any such response. It is the hour of sunrise at any age and in any circumstance and
in every assignment. Our Triumphant God is announcing “sunrise strength”. We are being empowered by our faithful God into a very fruitful day of divine activity! Rise and shine!
