What happens at the 7th Trumpet?

The conflict will proceed with Israel retreating toward its capital; Jerusalem. After days of exhausting battle, Israel will make her last stand within the walls of Jerusalem. In spite of heroic efforts by the Israeli soldiers, the Jewish people will find themselves facing defeat by the armies of the Antichrist.

It is at this time that the Seventh and Last Trumpet will sound! Jesus Christ will return to gather the elect from the earth (Matthew 24:29-31), have the Marriage Supper of the Lamb and go with His saints to fight on behalf of Israel at the Battle of Armageddon (Revelation 19).

During the Battle of Armageddon, the Seventh Vial will be poured out upon the earth. This will result in great hailstones being rained upon those armies that have come down to fight against Israel at Armageddon.
Zechariah 14:4 tells us that Jesus will place His feet on the Mount of Olives just outside of Jerusalem when He comes to the earth. When this happens, there will be a huge earthquake that splits the Mount of Olives in two, killing seven thousand people in the City of Jerusalem.

When Jesus touches down on the Mount of Olives, all of Israel will rush out to meet Him. When they bow before their Messiah, they will notice the nail scars in His hands and feet. They will realize He is Jesus and will receive Him as their Lord and their God. (Zechariah 12:10 and 13:6). Scripture tells us that all of Israel will be saved at this time (Romans 11:25-26).

God’s Wrath

At the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, He will appear as a loving, merciful savior to those who have obeyed His Word and allowed Him to be the Lord of their lives. But, to those who did not obey His Word and receive Him as Lord, He will return in vengeful flaming fire to execute judgment!

True religion is God’s method of saving the world. False religion is the most effective way of leading people away from the truth. That’s why God devotes two entire chapters of the Book of Revelation, detailing the horrible judgments that God will pour out upon the False Prophet and his false religious system. The same global earthquake that kills 7,000 in Jerusalem will completely destroy the “City of Seven Hills”–Rome (Revelation 16:19 & 17:9). Describing the destruction of Rome in Revelation 18:8, the scripture states, “Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.”

It is also at the Battle of Armageddon, when God will tear down the world governing system of the Antichrist. This is the same socialistic, godless entity that will have implemented the Mark of the Beast and caused so many to turn from God towards a humanistic solution to solve the problems of the world. It will be the end of human government on earth, and the ushering in of the Kingdom of God (Daniel 7:9).

    Great take on the 7th Trumpet. However, after 10 years + of deep study and prayer, I am certain these events will occur after the 6th Seal. I am posting Matthew 24:4 for proof: “And Jesus answered and said to them, “See to it that no one misleads you. 5“For many will come in My name, saying, ‘I am the Christ,’ and will mislead many. 6“You will be hearing of wars and rumors of wars. See that you are not frightened, for those things must take place, but that is not yet the end. 7“For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom, and in various places there will be famines and earthquakes. 8“But all these things are merely the beginning of birth pangs.

    9“Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name. 10“At that time many will fall away and will betray one another and hate one another. 11“Many false prophets will arise and will mislead many. 12“Because lawlessness is increased, most people’s love will grow cold. 13“But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved. 14“This gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the whole world as a testimony to all the nations, and then the end will come.

    Perilous Times

    15“Therefore when you see the ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), 16then those who are in Judea must flee to the mountains. 17“Whoever is on the housetop must not go down to get the things out that are in his house. 18“Whoever is in the field must not turn back to get his cloak. 19“But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! 20“But pray that your flight will not be in the winter, or on a Sabbath. 21“For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. 22“Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short. 23“Then if anyone says to you, ‘Behold, here is the Christ,’ or ‘There He is,’ do not believe him. 24“For false Christs and false prophets will arise and will show great signs and wonders, so as to mislead, if possible, even the elect. 25“Behold, I have told you in advance. 26“So if they say to you, ‘Behold, He is in the wilderness,’ do not go out, or, ‘Behold, He is in the inner rooms,’ do not believe them. 27“For just as the lightning comes from the east and flashes even to the west, so will the coming of the Son of Man be. 28“Wherever the corpse is, there the vultures will gather.

    The Glorious Return

    29“But immediately after the tribulation of those days THE SUN WILL BE DARKENED, AND THE MOON WILL NOT GIVE ITS LIGHT, AND THE STARS WILL FALL from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken. 30“And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the SON OF MAN COMING ON THE CLOUDS OF THE SKY with power and great glory. 31“And He will send forth His angels with A GREAT TRUMPET and THEY WILL GATHER TOGETHER His elect from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.”

    Either way (although I am not back up on this) we, Christians and the Church, should be shaken from our complacency and should be DOING what Jesus called us to do: Go and make disciples. PERIOD. The time is short.
