7. This is a prelude of the seven trumpets to come
God gave seven angels to prepare themselves to sound the seven trumpets (Revelation 8 - Revelation 11).
- Vegetation struck
One third of all the trees and green grass was burned up.
- The seas struck
A great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea and one third of all the seas became blood. One third of all the creatures in the sea all died. One third of all the ships were destroyed.
- The water was struck
All the waters became bitter, they became as wormwood.
- The heaven was struck
One third of the sun, moon and the stars were darkened, they did not shine. One third of the day did not shine and became as night.
- Locusts from the bottomless pit
The fifth angel opened the bottomless pit and smoke arose upon the earth and darkened the air. Then locusts came up and covered the earth. The locusts were given power like scorpions to sting and kill all those who did not have the seal of God on their forehead. The people of the earth were tormented for five months. They will desire to die but death will flee from them. The locusts are demonically controlled.
- The angels from the River Euphrates
At the great River Euphrates four angels were released to kill one third of all mankind. Here the armies of the world meet, two hundred million. Some have red uniforms, some blue, and others yellow.
- This is the kingdom proclaimed
When this trumphet sounded there were voices in heaven saying,
"The kingdom's of this world have become the kingdom's of our Lord and of His Christ and He shall reign forever and ever." Revelation 11:15And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become [the kingdoms] of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.Revelation 11 verse 15
At the end of this tribulation period Jesus Christ will return to this earth once the Battle of Armageddon begins. This war will be the end of all wars. Then the Judgment begins. After the Judgment, then Eternity Begins. The Millennial Reign will begin (read Revelation 21).
