The interjection came to be used as the word for the call or warning (compare alert). It was extended 16c. to "any sound to warn of danger or to arouse," and to the device that gives it. From mid-15c. as "a state of fearful surprise;" the weakened sense of "apprehension, unease" is from 1833. The variant alarum (mid-15c.) is due to the rolling -r- in the vocalized form. Sometimes in early years it was Englished as all-arm. Alarm clock is attested from 1690s (as A Larum clock).
This text is "an alarum of war given to the army, and to their High Court of Justice by the will of God" by Elizabeth Pooll (also known as Poole), who is referred to as a messenger of the Lord. After the miss prophesying of King Charles' execution, Pooll wrote and distributed "An Alarum of War" defending her title as a prophetess. In the text, Poole addresses the "pretended Church" and Fellowship of Saints in London, who held disbelief in her ability to communicate with the lord after her false prediction. In the Postscript of the writing, Pooll further states her power to communicate word from God and expresses her devout belief in the Church.
