Revelation 11:15–19 (ESV)

The Seventh Trumpet

15 Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he shall reign forever and ever.” 16 And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying,

       “We give thanks to you, Lord God Almighty,

who is and who was,

       for you have taken your great power

and begun to reign.

18    The nations raged,

but your wrath came,

and the time for the dead to be judged,

       and for rewarding your servants, the prophets and saints,

and those who fear your name,

both small and great,

       and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.”

19 Then God’s temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen within his temple. There were flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake, and heavy hail.

 

Finally, we get to the Seventh Trumpet.  The Lutheran Study Bible states: “John describes the transition from Satan’s temporary rule of the world to the consummation of God’s reign. For now, people can refuse to obey God. But such resistance will someday be met with an irresistible outpouring of wrath and judgment. Christ’s people need not fear that day. Instead, they may long for the day when God will be all in all, and perfect harmony will again prevail.”

 

I pray: O Lord, I pray from verse 5 from the hymn “For All the Saints”:  when the fight is fierce, the warfare long, Steals on the ear the distant triumph song, And hearts are brave again, and arms are strong. Alleluia! Alleluia! Amen. (LSB 677:5)

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
