Revelation 8:6–7 (ESV)

The Seven Trumpets

Now the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to blow them.

The first angel blew his trumpet, and there followed hail and fire, mixed with blood, and these were thrown upon the earth. And a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.

 

 

In this vision, John describes catastrophes that will accompany the end times.  As was true with the breaking of each of the seven seals, so also here successive calamities are unleashed by trumpet blasts. The first few trumpet blast are similar to plagues in Egypt.  We see hail and fire, two of the plagues visited upon Egypt. They were similarly a clarion call to repentance, yet went unheeded by Pharaoh.

 

O Lord, help us to stay in the faith and to trust your ways.  Help us to not be led astray.  Amen.
