Six Trumpet War Before the Great Tribulation?

By Irvin Baxter

Question: Miguel from New Mexico called Irvin to ask where does it say in scripture that the Sixth Trumpet War starts before the Great Tribulation.


Answer: The prophecy of WWIII which in the Bible is called the Euphrates River War or the Sixth Trumpet War is located in Revelation 9:13-21. Then you immediately move to chapter 10 and there records the beginning of the Great Tribulation. There’s an angel who stands one foot on the land and one foot on the sea declaring that delay shall be no longer and immediately that kicks you into chapter 11 where the final 3 1/2 years begin. The exact same incident is in Daniel 12 and there the angel says how long till the end of these wonder and he says a time, times and half a time, 3 1/2 years. So we know that the war happens in chapter 9 and the Great Tribulation begins in chapter 10.

    Just watched your talk about the possibility of a Trump initiated Middle East peace agreement over Jerusalem in early 2019. If that happens in 2019, when will the 6th Trumpet war be played out with 1/3 of the people on earth killed?

      The Bible is unclear on the timing of the 6th trumpet war. This prophecy and the Peace treaty are the 2 prophecies on the horizon. One could cause the other to happen. Look at the unrest that occurred when President Trump announced that the US would move our embassy to Jerusalem. Once the Jewish people are able to build their Temple on the Temple Mount, that could spark the war. Or if war were to break out first and 1/3 of mankind is killed, the world would be crying out for Peace. Either way, the Antichrist could use that war as an entrance to power.

    I heard you in a recent program saying something to the effect that the peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians could be signed within the next year or two. If it happens next year, where does it place in the chronology of events concerning your teaching that 1/3 of mankind will die in the 6th Trumpet?

      Hello David,
      We know that with the Peace Agreement, this starts the final 7 years before the return of Jesus and the Battle of Armageddon. Scripture doesn’t give us the timing of which event happens first. The 6th Trumpet war could still happen before the Peace Treaty or the Peace treaty could cause the war to start.
