The 7 Trumpets: God`s Call to Repentance & Judgment.
`Then the angel took the censer;
filled it with fire from the altar, & threw it to earth.....
So the 7 angels who had the 7 trumpets prepared themselves to sound.`
(Rev. 8: 5 & 6)
The time for the purification of Israel and judgment upon the Nations has come.
Note the blowing of the trumpets was a priestly activity and thus we see Christ the High Priest controlling this from the heavenly sanctuary. It was only when Christ as the angel threw the fire to the earth that the 7 angels prepared to sound.
The first four trumpet calls are during the early part of the tribulation and affects a third
of the earth, the sea, the water & the stars. This would bring about great hardship of famine, lack of fresh water, and great fear. Now we can see why the great multitude from the tribulation, died of hunger, thirst and heat. However we see that they heard `the trumpet call,` and repented before God. (Rev. 7: 16)
The Beginning of the Tribulation.
The 1st Trumpet sounded - (great heat and famine)
`and there came hail and fire, mixed with blood,
and they were thrown to the earth,
and a third of the trees were burned up and all the green grass was burnt up.`
The 2nd Trumpet sounded - (Tsunami and sickness)
`and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea,
and a third of the sea became blood, and a third of the living creatures in the sea died,
and a third of the ships were destroyed.`
(Rev. 8: 8 & 9)
The 3rd Trumpet sounded - (poison and thirst)
`and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch,
and it fell on the third of the rivers and on the springs of waters;
and the name of the star is Wormwood;
and a third of the waters became wormwood; and many men died from the water,
because it was made bitter, `
(Rev. 8: 10 & 11)
The 4th Trumpet sounded - (darkness and cold)
`a third of the sun was struck, a third of the stars,
so that a third of them were darkened,
and a third of the day did not shine, and likewise the night.
(Rev. 8: 12)
