the Seven trumpets(revelation)

An angel sent by God to his servant John to reveal what must soon take place, blessed is the one who reads the word of his prophecy and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it because the time is near.

john a disciple who walked the earth with our lord Jesus Christ whos father was zebedee and brother James. John was also one of the first disciple Jesus called, who witnessed all the works of our lord Jesus Christ while he was on earth, he was also one of the three Jesus called up on a high mountain and saw the son of man face shine like the sun and his clothes became white as the light and he also witnesssed Moses and Elijah talking to Jesus.

the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.

First trumpet

the first angel sounded his trumpet and there came hail and fire mix with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth. A third (1/3) of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.

second trumpet

the second angel sounded his trumpet and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third (1/3) of the sea turned into blood, a third (1/3) of all living creatures in the sea died and a third (1/3) of the ships were destroyed.

third trumpet

the third angel sounded his trumpet and a great star, blazing like a torch, fell from heaven on a third (1/3) of the rivers and on the springs of water – the name of the star was wormwood. A third (1/3) of the waters turned bitter, and many people died from the bitter waters.

fourth trumpet

the fourth angel sounded his trumpet and a third (1/3) of the sun was struck, a third (1/3) of the moon, and a third (1/3) of the stars, so that a third (1/3) of the them, turned dark. A third (1/3) of the day was without light, and also a third (1/3) of the night.

as John looked, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, “woe,woe,woe to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the remaining blasts of the trumpet of the three Angels who are about to sound.

fifth trumpet

the fifth angel sounded and John saw a star fallen from heaven to the earth. To him was given the key to the bottomless pit, and he opened the bottomless pit, and smoke arose out of the pit like the smoke of a great furnace. So the sun and the air were darkened because of the smoke of the pit. Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth, and to them, was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. They were commanded not to harm the grass of the earth, or any green thing, or any tree, but only those men who do not have the seal of God on their forehead. And they were given authority to kill them, but to torment them for five months. Their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it strikes a man. In this days men will seek death and will not find it, they will desire to die, and death will flee from them.

the shape of the locusts was like horses prepared for battle. On their heads were crowns of something like gold, and their faces were like the faces of men. They had hair like women’s hair, and their teeth were like lions’ teeth. They had breastplates of iron, and the sound of their wings was like the sound of chariots with many horses running into battle. They had tails like scorpions, and there were stings in their tails. Their power was to hurt men five months. They had as King over them the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in Hebrew is abaddon, but in Greek he has the name Apollyon. One woe is past, behold still two more woes are coming after these things .

sixth trumpet

the sixth angel sounded and John head a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet “release the four Angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” The four Angels, who had been prepared for the hour and day and month and year, were released to kill a third (1/3) of mankind.

the number of the army of the horsemen was two hundred million, John heard the number of them. And thus he saw the horses in the vision, those who sat on the horses had breastplates of fiery red, hyacinth blue, and sulfur yellow, and the heads of the horses were like the heads of lions, and out of their mouth came fire, smoke and brimstone. By these plagues a third (1/3) of mankind was killed – by the fire and the smoke and the brimstone which came out their mouths. For their power is in their mouth and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents, having heads and with them they do harm.

the rest of mankind who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands, that they should not worship demons and idols of gold, silver, brass, stone and wood, which can neither see nor hear nor walk. They did not repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their theft.

the might angel with a little book

John saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. A rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun and his feet like pillars of fire, he had a little book open in his hand and he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars. When he cried out, seven thunders uttered their voices, now when the seven thunders uttered their voices John was about to write but he heard a voice from heaven saying to him “seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered and do not write them.

the angel whom John saw standing on the sea and on the land raised up his hand to heaven and swore by him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be no delay, but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel. When he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as he declared to his servants the prophets.

john eats the little book

then the voice which John heard from heaven spoke to him again and said, ” go take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth.”

john went to the angel and said to him “give me the little book.” The angel said to John “take and eat it, and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.”

john took the little book out of the angel hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in the mouth. But when John ate it, his stomach became bitter. The angel said to John ” you must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, tongues and kings.”

seventh trumpet

the seventh angel sounded and there were loud voices in heaven, saying ” the kingdom of this world have become the kingdom of our lord and his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever!” And the twenty – four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying:

“we give you thanks, o lord God almighty, the one who is and who was and who is to come, because you have taken your great power and reigned. The nations were angry and your wrath has come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that you should reward your servants the prophets and the saints, and those who fear your name, small and great, and should destroy those who destroy earth.”

then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of his covenant was seen in his temple. And there we’re lightning noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail.

these are the seven trumpets that would be sounded in the last days. You could find them in revelation chapter 8.

see to it that you are save from gods wrath, only the righteous will escape Gods wrath because we are his children.
