(noun) rev·eil·le \ˈre-və-lē
A bugle call, trumpet call, or pipes call most often associated with the military and prisons; it is chiefly used to wake military personnel and prisoners at sunrise. The name comes from réveille (or réveil), the French word for "wake up”. (Merriam-Webster Dictionary)
Ephesians says that as born-again followers of Jesus, God “has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 1:3, ESV) and has “granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness” (2 Peter 1:3, ESV). However, so many Christians (and churches) go through their lives merely existing, either not knowing the true potential of what they possess or, for one reason or another, not wanting to tap into it.
I believe that God is awakening His people to take their place in partnership with Him. This is a wake-up call for those who are bound to find freedom and for soldiers to man their stations. This is reveille.
