Revelation 10 pt 5

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!

and previously:

  • Revelation 19:11 Faithful and True
    Our testimony is that Jesus has been faithful and true and stood alongside, through every storm that has been thrown at us, and never let go of us ever!
  • Revelation 19:10 The Testimony of Jesus…
    One understanding of the testimony of Jesus is that he will return as the radiant King; and he will bring peace and righteousness to this earth when he establishes his kingdom and reigns from Jerusalem. 
  • Revelation 19:9 Invited
    The Church as a whole will be invited to the wedding as a corporate being but we will also be invited as individuals, by virtue of our personal salvation that we have received.For many of us who are not usually invited to high-society events and who are often left out and behind, this comes as a blessing indeed!
  • Revelation 19:7 Eager Anticipation
    In the same way, we are called to look forward to the day when we meet with Christ Jesus, on the day that he returns in power and glory. He is our blessed hope and our lives lived here on earth should be directed towards this coming moment. 
  • Revelation 19:7 A Wedding!
    I pray that we will live out our salvation with fear and trembling, and walk closely with our Lord, that we might walk with confidence and reassurance, knowing that we will be warmly welcomed and honoured as a guest, wearing the white robes of righteousness.
