In 2010 there happened interesting things that correspond surprisingly to the first trumpet blasts described in Revelation 8.
Actually just before the 7 trumpet blasts Rev 8:5 tells about an earthquake. In 2010 occured a very deadly earthquake, the Haiti Earthquake.
After that happened the first trumpet blow. Hail and fire followed. That is exactly what a volcano does. And accurately after the Haiti Earthquake a significant volcano erupted on Island, that disrupted for a while a lot of flights in Europe. So it was really a significant world event.
After that the second trumpet blow caused "something like a great mountain burning with fire was hurled into the sea." Rev.8:8. That is very similar to the oilrig in the Mexican gulf in 2010 that cought fire and fell into the sea and the huge enviromental disaster that followed.
After that the trird trumpet blow caused "a great star burning like a lamp fell from heaven". That is very similar to the bright meteor that fell in Russian in 2013. That too was a spectacular worldevent.
So here we have 4 major world events corresponding to the things described in Revelation 8. So I believe that the trumpet blasts have been in the working since 2010. The trumpet blasts 4 and 5 are not so easy to recognize. But I believe I have recognized them.
What the sixth trumpet blow I don't know yet.
So I understand that the 7 trumpet blasts include a relatively long time period. But the 7 bowls of God's anger seem to me to occure during a much shorter time period, similar to the 10 plagues in Egypt.
The '7 Trumpets' can only start to occur after ALL of Christ's brothers have been sealed.
This is made clear to us by closely considering Revelation 7.
There, angels - who have the power and authority to harm - are told not
to harm the symbolic
sea, earth or trees, they are seen as holding back
symbolic 'winds' until after ALL 144,000 have been identified.
Revelation 7:1-3 After this I saw four angels standing upon the four corners of the earth, holding tight the four winds of the earth, that no wind might blow upon the earth or upon the sea or upon any tree. And I saw another angel ascending from the sunrising, having a seal of [the] living God; and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was granted to harm the earth and the sea, saying: “Do not harm the earth or the sea or the trees, until after we have sealed the slaves of our God in their foreheads.
Once the last of these 'brothers' are sealed, these symbolic 'winds' are released, resulting in a Great Tribulation, out of which comes a great crowd: -
Revelation 7:14...“These are the ones that come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
How do we know we have not yet entered into this moment?
These winds are symbolic and represent God's Spirit.
Soon this spirit will be poured out into the whole earth, resulting in a spiritual awakening, as foretold in Daniel 12, in connection with the time of great distress resulting from Michael standing: -
Daniel 12:1, 2 “And during that time Miʹcha·el will stand up, the great prince who is standing in behalf of the sons of your people. And there will certainly occur a time of distress such as has not been made to occur since there came to be a nation until that time.
And during that time your people will escape, every one who is found written down in the book. And there will be many
of those asleep in the ground of dust who will wake up
, these to indefinitely lasting life and those to reproaches [and] to indefinitely lasting abhorrence.
This pouring of spirit was also foretold by the prophet Joel: -
Joel 2:28-32 “And after that it must occur that I shall pour out my spirit on every sort of flesh, and YOUR sons and YOUR daughters will certainly prophesy. As for YOUR old men, dreams they will dream. As for YOUR young men, visions they will see. And even on the menservants and on the maidservants in those days I shall pour out my spirit. “And I will give portents in the heavens and on the earth, blood and fire and columns of smoke. The sun itself will be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and fear-inspiring day of Jehovah. And it must occur that everyone who calls on the name of Jehovah will get away safe; for in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will prove to be the escaped ones, just as Jehovah has said, and in among the survivors, whom Jehovah is calling.
Since Pentecost 33CE these verses from Joel have had a minor application, a foregleam, upon a few here and a few there, until ALL 144,000 have been identified.
Yes, there have been many called, or spirit anointed...
Matthew 22:14 “For there are many invited
, but few chosen.”
Many mistakenly associate being called or spirit anointed with being chosen as one of Christ's brothers, they conclude they are one and the same, but they are most certainly not.
Once the last of these 144,000 has been chosen, then the spirit will become operative upon ALL, resulting in a global judgment, or as Daniel 12 puts it, some being blessed others being cursed: -
Daniel 12:2 And there will be many
of those asleep in the ground of dust who will wake up
, these to indefinitely lasting life
and those to reproaches [and] to indefinitely lasting abhorrence.
This time parallels Jesus account of the sheep and goats: -
Matthew 25:31-33 “When the Son of man arrives in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne. And all the nations will be gathered before him
, and he will separate people
one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will put the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left.
Note that the scriptures talk about those - the few here and a few there - who have already received of the spirit, it says they have 'tasted' the powers of the coming system, these ones know what is coming and what is to be expected, because they have experienced it: -
Hebrews 6:4, 5 For it is impossible as regards those who have once for all been enlightened, and who have tasted the heavenly free gift, and who have become partakers of holy spirit, and who have tasted
the fine word of God and powers of the coming system of things,
These 'winds' have NOT yet been unleashed upon ALL.
It would spell the time of the end, if they had.
It would mean the whole earth being forced to recognise and 'see' the Christ: -
Revelation 1:7 Look! He is coming with the clouds, and every eye will see him
, and those who pierced him; and all the tribes of the earth will beat themselves in grief because of him
. Yes, Amen.
This also means that there still remain some who are yet to be sealed as Christ's brothers, there are still some seats left, the door is not yet closed...
Luke 13:24 “Exert yourselves vigorously to get in through the narrow door, because many, I tell YOU, will seek to get in but will not be able,
A trumpet cannot make a sound unless there is 'wind' to blow it.
Again, Revelation 7 says 'winds' are being held back: -
Further, upon the blowing
of the first trumpet, a third of the earth and a third of the trees are harmed.
Remember, Revelation 7 says that the earth and trees are being prevented
from harm, until ALL 144,000 have been accounted for.
Revelation 8:7 And the first one blew his trumpet. And there occurred a hail and fire mingled with blood, and it was hurled to the earth; and a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees was burned up, and all the green vegetation was burned up.
For a trumpet to sound, you need wind...
No wind = no trumpet sound.
The wind comes after the 144,000 are sealed.
Thus the trumpets and their sounding is yet future.
