The Trumpets will bring about the most extensive and intense period of suffering the world has known up to that time, and Satan will appear to be triumphing. But by arresting the attention of every person on earth, the Seven Trumpets will also prepare the way for the most powerful proclamation of the gospel that has ever taken place
The Seven Trumpets of Revelation depict a great war that takes place at the end of time, which is a part of the Great Time of Trouble. This war takes place while the 144,000 are giving God’s last message to the world and are Satan’s attempt to stop them.
Revelation 8 begins with Silence in Heaven as the Seven Trumpets are about to sound. An angel with a Golden Censer has been protecting the earth, but when He throws down the censer and the 7 trumpets begin to sound the whole world is plunged into unimaginable chaos and grief.
