After The Rapture Part 3 – The 7 Trumpets

The 7 Seal Judgements have already happened and now the 7 Trumpet Judgements occur. You can find the 7 Trumpet Judgements here:

1st Trumpet – Rev. 8:7 – hail and fire mixed with blood fall to the earth and a third part of the trees will be burnt up.

2nd Trumpet – Rev. 8:8,9 – something like a burning mountain was cast into the sea and one third of the sea became blood. One third of the creatures in the sea, die and one third of ships are destroyed.

3rd Trumpet – Rev. 8:10 – A great star from heaven falls on a third of the rivers and the fountains of waters. The star is called “Wormwood” and one third of the waters became wormwood and many of mankind die because of the waters.

4th Trumpet – Rev. 8:12 – One third of the sun, the moon and the stars will be smitten. This is one of the signs mentioned by Jesus Christ in Luke 21:25,26.

Then the angel says woe, woe, woe to the inhabiters of the earth for the other trumpets that are yet to sound. Remember, this is all still part of the first half of the tribulation.

5th Trumpet – Rev. 9:1-12 When the 5th Trumpet sounds a star falls from heaven to the earth: and to him was given the key to the bottomless pit. (This is an angel not a literal star because of how the verse reads, “to him was given the key.”) This will not be a “fallen” angel this will be an angel from God. And God entrusts him with the key to the bottomless pit. And in Rev. 9:2 it says this angel uses the key and opens the bottomless pit and out of the pit comes: Smoke as a great furnace and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke. Out of the smoke came locusts and they were given power like scorpions (to sting) those that were not God’s people who got saved during the tribulation. These locusts are to torment the people for five months. The shape of the locusts is described in verse 7-11 and as normal locusts eat grass and vegetation, these locusts go after man and look somewhat like a man.

This appears to be describing demons released from the bottomless pit and these demons have a leader in Hebrew called Abaddon but in Greek called Apollyon. This king or leader is not Satan.

This is all part of the first of three woes mentioned by the angel of God after the fourth trumpet had sounded, see Rev. 9:12.

6th Trumpet – Rev. 9:13-21 the angel is told by God to loose the four angels that are bound in the great river Euphrates. These four angels are to slay, kill, one third of mankind. These four angels are bad angels and we know this because they are bound. These four angels are in charge of an army of 200 million. (This is the second woe).

{There is a break between the 6th Trumpet and the 7th Trumpet just as there was a break from the 6th Seal to the 7th Seal.}

During this break, a mighty angel comes and has a little book in his hand. During this time the two witnesses of God come to earth. Then is Rev. 11:15 – the 7th Trumpet.

7th Trumpet – Rev. 11:15 -During this time there are great wonders in heaven. There were great voices in heaven, you see the 24 elders before the Lord. And in verse 19 we see the temple of God was opened in heaven and the ark of the covenant is seen in the temple in heaven (so for those looking for the ark of the covenant, it is now in heaven not on earth see Rev. 11:19).

A woman is seen (Israel) not Mary or the church and a red dragon, having 7 heads and 10 horns and 7 crowns. And in Rev. 12:9 we are told the dragon is Satan, the devil. {The 7 heads are 7 continents the 7 crowns are rulers and the 10 crowns are leaders of a commonwealth}

We see the Devil, Satan and his angels are cast out into the earth for 3 1/2 years in Rev. 12:3-9 and we see in verse 13 the devil persecutes the woman (Israel). We find cities of refuge and when we get to Rev. 15:6 we see 7 angels come and they receive the 7 last plagues the 7 vial judgements to pour out.
