“The Trumpet Judgment”
July 7, 2013
Pastor Roger Ball
Many say the purging by “Mother Nature” is unique, painful, horrific, insane and tragic. Consider earthquakes, volcanoes, hurricanes, tsunamis and tornadoes. Consider the forest fire last Sunday night near Prescott-Yarnell which killed 19 innocent, life-protecting, courageous, elite firefighters. Remember and pray for the families who lost these loved ones in their 20’s and 30’s. Our hearts share in this painful loss.
Also pray for those who ignore the warnings of the future judgments of “God” known as the Seven Trumpets explained in Revelation 8.
Seal #7 and Trumpet #1 … 2 …3 … 4
Revelation 8:1 – When the Lamb broke the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
Revelation 8:2 – And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.
Revelation 8:6 – And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them.
Trumpet #1Revelation 8:7 – The first sounded, and there came hail and fire, mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the earth; and a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.
The blast and eradication from Angel #1
Trumpet #2Revelation 8:8 – The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood,Revelation 8:9 – and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed.
The blast and deadly fallout from Angel #2
Trumpet #3Revelation 8:10 – The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters.Revelation 8:11 – The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.
The blast and devastation from Angel #3
Trumpet #4Revelation 8:12 – The fourth angel sounded, and a third of the sun and a third of the moon and a third of the stars were struck, so that a third of them would be darkened and the day would not shine for a third of it, and the night in the same way.
The blast and consequences from Angel #4
