  3. 3. Trumpets of God <ul><li>This is the record given of Gideon’s plan. He divides his three hundred men into three groups . They are given three things : </li></ul><ul><li>1. Pitchers. </li></ul><ul><li>2. Lamps. </li></ul><ul><li>3. Trumpets. </li></ul><ul><li>When they went into battle, their cry was to be, “The sword of the Lord and of Gideon.” </li></ul><ul><li>The interesting thing is that Gideon did not have a sword and neither did any of the three hundred men. </li></ul>Blow the Trumpets in Zion
  4. 4. Trumpets of God <ul><li>At a certain time they blew their trumpets and broke the pitchers so that the light shone out. “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels ” 2 Corinthians 4:7. </li></ul><ul><li>Some of us are not broken and, as a result, the light does not shine through. It is not our light that we should shine, but the light of the Lord Jesus Christ. </li></ul>Blow the Trumpets in Zion
