Revelation 10 pt 5

Continuing our study of Revelation chapter 10.

Revelation 10:6a  ‘There will be no more delay! But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.’

Scripture describes the blowing of eschatological trumpets in various places.

In the days of the seventh trumpet, an intense series of events will unfold. Israel will be delivered by the second exodus. The elect will be raptured and the dead resurrected. The enemy will be defeated and Jerusalem liberated. And the Kingdom of our Lord will be established on the earth.

Consider the following:

Revelation 10:7  ‘But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished.’

Israel and the Church will become one, the radiant bride of Christ. This is described in Ephesians 2:14.

Isaiah 27:13  ‘And in that day a great trumpet will sound. Those who were perishing in Assyria and those who were exiled in Egypt will come and worship the Lord on the holy mountain in Jerusalem.

This describes the gathering and second exodus of the Jewish people. Israel will find their end-time redeeming salvation in Christ Jesus. 

Zechariah 9:14  ‘Then the Lord will appear over them, his arrow will flash like lightning. The Sovereign Lord will sound the trumpet, he will march in the storms of the south.’

This describes Jesus returning to reclaim Jerusalem from the enemy, from the Antichrist, and usher in the Kingdom. 

Matthew 24:31  ‘And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.’

The days of the trumpet call will  bring about the rapture of the saints. 

1 Corinthians 15:52a  ‘For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable and we will be changed.’

The trumpet will bring the time of resurrection.

Revelation 11:15  ‘The seventh angel sounded his trumpet and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ and he will reign forever and ever.’

When the trumpet sounds the Kingdom of Christ will be established on this earth.

Some will argue that these seventh and final trumpet calls are not all the same. 

Some, including myself, would argue that they are the same. However, the days of the seventh trumpet does not speak of a single moment in time but rather a collection of events and the chronology of these events remains somewhat obscure and mysterious. 

I appreciate there may be clearer insights into this whole matter to come. 

What a momentous and glorious moment though, in the history of mankind and this dear old planet! 

Lord Jesus is returning and he means business!

  • Revelation 11 pt 4
    The different expressions for the same period of time would also show that they are actual measurements of time that are not to be spiritualised into something of our own making. This period of time will actually happen. It will be the final three-and-a-half years before Christ Jesus returns in power and glory!
  • Revelation 11 pt 3
    The building of the Third Temple and the beginning of the daily sacrifice will bring such joy to many of the people of Israel. The treachery of the end-time beast and his desecration of the temple will be the final straw that will weaken the pride of Israel and prepare them in brokenness to receive Christ Jesus as their Messiah when he returns in power and glory. 
  • Revelation 11 pt 2
    A Third Temple must be built and the sacrifices and grain offerings to commence, so that the end-time beast can arise, bring a halt to the daily sacrifice and desecrate the temple in order to fulfil prophecies of both Jesus and Daniel.
  • Revelation 11 pt 1
    There has always been a great expectation that a Third Temple will be built although there are clear challenges to hurdle, not least the opposition of other world religions that hold political control over the Temple Mount. Political wrestling goes on regarding the future development of the Temple and the will and expectation grows more acutely with every passing year. 
  • A Prayer For Afghanistan
    May a spirit of praise and worship be lifted up amongst the hearts of Christians in Afghanistan, even though the praise may need to be covert and sung under their breath, may it be joyous and contagious.
