THE SEVEN TRUMPETS

Revelation 8 brings us to the midpoint of the Great Tribulation and gives us a preview of what is about to be unleased in the last three and a half years.  The Antichrist is trying to put together his government to rule the world.  Three of the original ten nations have backed out on him.  It is about to get really ugly in the Middle East as He starts to act up.

The episode of Revelation 8 opens unusually.  We have been waiting to see what is behind the seventh seal.   “When he [Jesus] opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.”(Revelation 8:1 CSB)  Heaven has been described as a place where the Lord is praised continually.   In the opening of seventh seal what caused the awkward pause in heaven for thirty minutes?  Can you imagine a news reporter going silent for thirty minutes on air?  We cannot even attempt to guess what was unsealed.  We will have to wait.

What happens next? Judgement!  Seven angels were given seven trumpets.  Another angel with a gold incense burner stood at the altar.  He was given a lot of incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints. (Rev. 8:3) The smoke of incense and the prayers went up . The angel took the incense burner and filled it with fire which was also a combination of prayers and incense.  He threw it down to earth which resulted in thunder, lightning, and an earthquake.  The last 3 ½ years started with a bang. 

The angels then prepared to blow the trumpets as an alarm to what was heading to earth.

THE FIRST TRUMPET  (Rev. 8:7)
Blown and hail, fire, mixed with blood was  hurled to earth.
Results:  A third of earth, a third of trees burned up, and all the grass was burned up.

THE SECOND TRUMPET (Rev. 8:8-9)
Blown and something like a fiery, great mountain was hurled into the sea.
Results: A third of the sea became blood. A third of  living sea creatures die. A third of ships will were destroyed.

THE THIRD TRUMPET (Revelation 8:10-11)
Blown and a great star named Wormwood, blazing like a torch, fell from heaven.
Results:  It fell on a third of the rivers and springs of water.  A third of the waters became wormwood, and bitter. Many people died from the waters.

THE FOURTH TRUMPET
“The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of them were darkened. A third of the day was without light and also a third of the night.  (Revelation 8:12 CSB).

Things get a lot darker.  However, If you think these warnings are bad, you have not seen anything yet.  

“I looked and heard an eagle flying high overhead, crying out in a loud voice, “Woe! Woe! Woe to those who live on the earth, because of the remaining trumpet blasts that the three angels are about to sound! “  (Revelation 8:12-13 CSB)

I enCOURAGE you to go silent before the Lord.  Ask Him what He wants to show you as we journey through Revelation.  I also encourage you to take this time to pray for family, friends, and all to choose Jesus.  He is salvation and a way to escape the Great Tribulation.  I do not know when the Lord is going to come and take His bride.  I do know that we need to watch and be prepared to meet Him in the sky.  Who knows the hour or the minute of His return?  Just be ready and watching, please?  Don’t put off turning to Him any longer.
