Revelation: The Seven Trumpets and When They Shall Sound

April 4, 2014   |   Category: Blog   |   Tags: ,

Five of the seven trumpets that signify the end of the age have come to pass. With only two left to occur, we must look to the Bible to understand what to expect.

The Bible indicates in Revelation that seven trumpets will sound before the end of the age and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Five of the seven have already sounded as evidenced by critical moments in recent history, and a third world war, which is the triggering event of the sixth trumpet, may have already begun. Our understanding of Biblical prophecies and the events that have already come to pass, will guide us in what to expect when the final two trumpets sound.

The First Two Trumpets

In Revelation 8:7, John describes an apocalyptic vision. His vision explains the triggering event of the sounding of the first trumpet — hail and fire mixed with blood falling to the ground, and approximately 33% of all of the grass and trees in the known world destroyed.

During World War I, large amounts of artillery shells and chemical agents were released on troops for the first time in history through modern warfare, killing over 8 million people. Soldiers on both sides burned vast tracts of land in order to eliminate any natural or man-made items that their enemies could use.

Another war, World War II is also the event that was triggered by the sounding of the second trumpet. Looking to Revelation 8:8-9, the Bible explains that a third of the ships involved in the conflict that coincides with the activation of this trumpet will be destroyed. During World War II, approximately one third of the ships that participated in the conflict were sunk. In turn, the nuclear bomb deployed at Hiroshima resembled “something like a great mountain burning with fire,” a sight that was new on the world stage.

The Third Trumpet

In a podcast discussing the seven trumpets, Irvin Baxter told listeners of his understanding of the sounding of the third trumpet, which occurred during the nuclear disaster at Chernobyl. In Revelation 8:10-11, the prophet explains that the third trumpet will sound before a star, called Wormwood, will fall and affect a third of the waters.

In 1995, God prompted Irvin to research the Chernobyl disaster that occurred in the Ukraine in 1986, whereupon he learned that “Chernobyl” means “Wormwood” in Russian. Furthermore, the nuclear radiation that emanated from the destroyed power plant contaminated more than 33 percent of the water supply in Europe and Western Asia, killing thousands and affecting hundreds of thousands of other citizens with diseases caused by the radiation.

The Fourth Event

Revelation 8:12-13 explains that the fourth trumpet would sound before the length of the days become shortened, and the sun would not shine for a third of the day. Therefore, time will be shortened and our days around the world will be experienced differently. After the Berlin Wall fell in 1989, a “new world order” with a new age of globalization began to develop. President Ronald Reagan challenged Mikhail Gorbachev to “tear down this wall!” and 29 months later the fourth trumpet sounded.

The Fifth Instrument

According to prophecy, the fifth trumpet will sound before a bottomless pit of fire causes a massive amount of smoke to block the light of the sun. During the Gulf War, Iraqi soldiers ignited over 700 oil wells around the deserts of Kuwait, which were some of the largest, underground wells of oil on the planet. From the seemingly bottomless hole in the ground, smoke entered the atmosphere and blocked sunlight for three months. With Suddam Hussein as their president, whose name means “Destroyer” or “Abaddon” in Hebrew as described in Revelation 9:11, Iraqi soldiers incited a battle with the United Nations in the Middle East, an area still under turmoil.

The Sixth Trumpet

This second-to-last trumpet will sound before a war is started near the Euphrates River. This waterway traverses Syria, Iraq, Turkey and Iran, which comprise the Middle East. Revelation 9:13-21 indicates that four angels will command an army of 200 million individuals.

With a population of more than 1 billion people, China is able to field an army that consists of more than 200 million soldiers, and in addition, countries united under the Islamic faith have the ability to create an army of the same size. When a new world-dominating government is established under the Antichrist, an event coming very soon, we will be in the midst of a great war that will see the Abomination of Desolation and the Great Tribulation.

The Final Trumpet

The sounding of the seventh trumpet will be the most dynamic event out of all the trumpets prophesied in the Bible, affecting all human beings. It is at this last trumpet that Jesus Christ will send angels to rapture all saints for their eternal reward and pass his judgments on the fate of the earth’s inhabitants. This event also marks the end of human government and the establishment of the Kingdom of God, on earth, for the next one thousand years.

At this time, the end time, all of what the Bible has prophesied will come to pass and prove the power of God’s will.

    My person opinion: the “Church” will not be around for the Sixth Trumpet. When the rapture of the “Church” might occur, as in the time. We are told that God Himself is the only One who knows. All I know for sure is from the signs that I have seen and that I am seeing, it is very soon – and very near.

      Jesus specifically told His disciples, concerning the Second Coming and the rapture in Mark 12:32, “But of that day and that hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.” As a result of this verse, many people have concluded a post-tribulation rapture is not possible because we would be able to know the day of Jesus’ return if it, in fact, occurs after the tribulation. In spite of this, this argument does not affect a post-tribulation rapture.

      First, we understand Jesus was speaking directly to His disciples, which means this could have been specifically for His disciples at that time. Jesus said the Son, Himself, did not know the day of His own return. Does that still apply today? Does Jesus, the all-knowing God, still question when He will return and gather His church? Of course not, which gives us reason to believe this verse was applying only to the disciples. There are other examples of prophecies being kept from those it was told to in Daniel 12:9 and Acts 1:7.

      Secondly, Paul spoke germanely to this subject in 1Thessalonians 5. In the fourth verse Paul tells the church of Thessalonica, “But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.” This was in reference to the day of the Lord which pertains to the Second Coming of Jesus and the rapture. Paul stated, those in the light will not be caught off guard by the Second Coming of Jesus Christ.

      Finally, Daniel 12:11-12 gives us additional days spanning beyond the 1,260 days of the tribulation. These expansion of days, the 1,290 and the 1,335, are accompanied with no details which leaves us handicapped. What exactly happens during that time? We can only speculate since we are not given a concrete answer in the Scriptures. This may prevent us from knowing the exact day of the Second Coming and the rapture but we will definitely be aware of a close approximate time because we are not in the darkness.

  2. Matthew Trammell

    I do not mean to disagree with the things said above me but many of these trumpet events do not fulfill the trumpets in revelation. The second trumpet days not only 1/3 of the ships destroyed but also 1/3 of sea life. The third trumpet describes a star “falling from heaven” when Chernobyl came from earth. The fourth trumpet darkens the sky literally rather than figuratively. The fifth trumpet then describes locusts coming out from the smoke and tormenting mankind for 5 months, something that definitely has not happened. The events of revelation are catastrophic and it takes faith to believe that all that God says will come to past. Be waiting for his return at the end of the Great tribulation and live every day as if it is your last. God bless His elect.

      While I agree that these listed in this article are a little different than what will/has happened, I personally think the locusts are already here. In Africa, they are having one of their worst seasons with locusts in history.

  3. Hi, This morning i did post a helpful reply to the two girls i saw (i have not seen all these posts btw) Sadie, and Crystal, and after thatone, a sort of auxilliary, even more explanatory one, about the things i find thru the bible and its corroborating history via Egypt, Babylon and other helps on what helps most people eho want to know at the start the big picture, of what the issues are, acvirding to the scrips. (Those coon, repeat threads of what is stated in Genesis, truout, and a grest pkace to start is in Matthew ch. 24, and Malachi, a gem of encouragement, i tnought, to those dear young people who are concerned and need to know things in those, and —-now i see Those 2 posts TO THEM STILL HAVE NOT POSTED…?, is something wrong, i was going on what is pure scriptures, original manuscripts, King James, and Egyptian history… i tnink that helps add meaning to whst is stated in the bible, as it cirtobotates what it says regarding everything in those scriptures, we like examples of real life cuvilisations, it helps, dont you agree? Ihope you will post them, it will help tbem for sure, and these other viewers AS WELL, all people.

    -iam asking if there is a problem in anything i wrote for those girls Ssdie and Crystal because it is the end of the day already, and tbey are’nt there yet.

    • Doug Norvell

      There is not a problem, You just have to allow for time. I go as quickly as I can and if a post comes in over the weekend, it will not post until Monday. Thank you for your patience.

  4. Lindsay, i just told your experince hearing that sound, creepy, … the immediate reaction from them, was, ” IT PROBLY WAS.” (The High School band, ptracticing…it sounds pretty creepy when you blow a trumpet out of tune…!)… fofl
    Especially if you have TEN TRUMPETS all out of tune, trying to sustain the sound for 10 minutes, would be a REALLYREALLY CREEPY sound!!!!!,,!!)
    but of course, I know that you would know the difference, and bands do not have 10 trumpets in any high-school area, most likely, and had there been a playoff or mass practice, you would have either heard it before, or
    You enquired and found it couldn’t habe been the scool band or multiple bands.
    But it hit me so funny, i haven’t laughed so hard in a year at least… maybe some of you will get a little laugh out of it, too! (It’s good for us medicine in these times!)

  5. Hi, good to resd this, everything’s aterrible horrific catsclysmic MESS.

    Thank you for listening , thank you for studying and hrlping us

  6. Dylon Hopper

    I believe in god to the fullest extent, but when I heard about these trumpets going off around the world with no explanation as the news said, well, there very much is an explanation and people decide not to believe it, and it is so very true, and I hope all come to realize we are in the end times. And there are only 2 places to go, heaven or hell, and hell is somewhere I do not want to be, thank you god for blessing me and saving my life.

  7. Lauren Smith

    I read some of the book of revelations and didn’t understand it at when I found your article EVERYTHING made sence Thank you so much for your time God Bless you

  8. Brian Adamx

    Thank you for this article. I was led to think about the trumpets that blew over Israel last year and in Russia’s skies also.
    Then I found your site can you comment as to the trumpets sounding in these areas last year please.

    • Doug Norvell

      Hello Brian,

      We have seen video of these events, but we cannot prove that they are real, and I do not think they have anything to do with the prophecy of the 7 trumpets.

  9. The Book of Revelation is one of my favorite besides Gospels of Matthew and Psalms. However, one must look at the Book of Revelations as an awakening of a new age. Where great things will come. I have witness and heard the trumpet in the sky and have spoken to the ones that came before. If you have faith then know all good things will come to this world. The book of Revelation is actually showing us that we are moving to a new age of thinking. The 3rd and 4th dimensional way of thinking will soon fade out and moving our soul to the fifth dimension into a higher consciousness with less anxiety and stress.

    • Lindsay

      In 2014 I heard the trumpets loud. I was walking my dogs and at first thought it was the high school band 3 miles away. It lasted for a good 10 minutes. It sounded creepy, but I knew it was a warning. The videos you hear on YouTube are somewhat accurate. It was as if it was 10 people blowing horns out of sync.

    • Hi Lindsey, what you heard stood all my hsis on end, Wow, those noises around the world sre unexplainable, and i, too, think it is a sign to all of us, although i have never heard one myself, thank you for this, it is very reassuring you felt that, Yah our Father bless you,
      And keep all of you safe, me andmine too, please that includesthese many cats and all the animals, period, out there, itis not fair that they suffer for our sins… Yah please save them all, and all pure hearts of people… thank you again for postin that may YAHUSHUA RETURN SOON….and pkease help us all, survive to help others, til then

  10. Reginald

    for the past 2 weeks, 24 / 7. I hear angelic singing and voices chanting, but no one next to me can hear it., after careful research I believe that I am experiencing the signs of the 2nd coming of christ

  11. I been searching for the seven trumpets for a long time and after a long time I founed it so i really don’t really go to church and i really wanted to learn about the seven trumpets so i can be ready for when jesus is coming back but because of this website i was able to read about the seven trumpet …… name is Amari Anye and i am 11 years old

  12. Very good break down of the 7 trumpets…. Would you be able to help me understand the 1000 years and who the antichrist is and then what happens after the 1000 yrs

      The Seventh Seal
       Revelation 8:1 – “And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven
      about the space of half an hour.”
      o What is this half hour of silence?
      o We can’t really say for sure other than that it happens at the time of the Second
      Coming of Jesus at the rapture
      o It could possibly be:
       Heaven watching the rapture taking place
       Heaven watching the marriage of the bride to the bridegroom
       The coronation of Jesus Christ
      The seals, trumpets and vials
       Revelation 8:2 – “And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were
      given seven trumpets.”
      o This verse leads many people to believe that the seven trumpets will be contained in
      the seventh seal
      o However, this cannot occur because the sixth and seventh seal, seventh trumpet, and
      seventh vial all represent the same thing
      The seals are the long story beginning in 300 AD and ending at the Battle of
       The trumpets are a shorter story beginning over a hundred years ago and
      ending at the Battle of Armageddon
       The vials are the shortest story that do not begin until the final three and a half
      years and end at the Battle of Armageddon

  13. No! Not any of the Trumpets have sounded yet! None of the things have happened yet at all & they will start on the day that we get struck by an astroid in the Atlantic Ocean. What I say is easily proven without any doubt & 100% accurate. That is why some of the things you say can not be explained & what the Bible says are missing in your explanation. You age not correct at all & way off!

  14. you forgot some important info in verse 3, where are the Locust with stingers on their tails, how could the trumpet sound without this happening, it can’t as God does not Lie, and the Bible is clear.

  15. Look I don’t know a lot about the Bible but what I do know about the trumpets is that in the Vatican knows this to you can ask but if you don’t get Trump out of office it will do nothing but get worse think about it Trump you get it he’s already upset there’s no turning back from that this is our last chance after this it will do nothing to get worse or I can get better because mankind has really messed us up we need to get better and as far as Jesus coming back he’s already been here he’s here now he just walks looks and listens and some judgment will be past Recently I excepted the gospel I don’t know why just something came over me one day and I’m completely changed all I know is it’s got to get better or that’s it for us

  16. this is all blasphemy because y’all need to look up the truth because wormwood is currently close at hand because its a documented asteroid, along with the second asteroid that i have named airigodeus, along with comets, meteors, and meteorites heading this way revolving around the tenth planet (roman numeral x) called niberu the destroyer planet. they have already established that the other planets have all been affected and that we are starting to see the affects of this ourselves with technology issues and weather changes and the goverment blames greenhouse gases and global warming is the issue but that hole has always been there because that was the same hole that the ladder they called jacobs ladder came from heaven to earth through and its the same hole christ left through.

    • James Corbus

      Not true about bible not mentioning a rapture. “But let me reveal to you a wonderful secret. We will not all die, but we will all be transformed! It will happen in a moment, in the blink of an eye, when the last trumpet is blown. For when the trumpet sounds, those who have died will be raised to live forever. And we who are living will also be transformed.”
      ‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:51-52‬ ‭NLT‬‬

      • Greetings~ My translation of the Holy Scriptures says that we will not all fall asleep in death. Revelation 6:9 When the 5th seal is opened I saw underneath the altar of those who were slaughtered ,because of the word of God and because of the witness they had given they shouted with a loud voice saying until when Sovereign Lord ,Holy,and true are you refraining from judging, and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth,and a white robe was given to each of them,and they were told to rest a little while until the number was filled of their fellow slaves and their brothers were about to be killed as they had been.Those who were dead in Christ were dead for at least 2 thousand years.they slept in death.So they will rise first. Those who are alive at the return of Jesus Christ have to die but don’t have to sleep but immediately at ones death will be changed in a blink of an eye a literally being changed instantly from death to life not sleeping in death .Flesh and blood can’t enter in to the kingdom of heavens must literally being born again not of flesh and blood because we put off the flesh and are literally born again as a Spirit person with entrance into the Kingdom of the heavens as the rest of the Spirits of God dwells. Many Blessing to you.

      We Shall All Be Changed
      In the Bible, 1 Corinthians describes our final victory:
      Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:51-52
      Paul says this occurs at the last trump, which the Bible tells us is the seventh trumpet. 1 Corinthians 15 and Revelation 11:15 are referring to the same thing. For the trumpet shall sound, the dead shall be raised, and we shall be changed.

      Transformed Instantly
      At the Second Coming of Jesus Christ, all born again Christians will be caught up in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18). At the sound of the “last trumpet,” the dead who were born again during their lifetime will be resurrected from the dead. At the same time, those who are born again and still alive on earth will be transformed instantly, from mortal beings to immortal beings. Romans 8:11 tells us that our mortal bodies will be made alive if we have God’s spirit living in us.
      It is often taught that at the rapture all of us will instantly disappear, but that is not what the Bible says. It says we will be changed in a moment and in the twinkling of an eye. When Jesus Christ was caught up, He was seen leaving the earth. Just as they were able to see Jesus go, so will people be able to see the church go.

      Of That Day and Hour No One Knows
      “But of that day and hour no one knows,” Jesus said to His disciples on the Mount of Olives (Matthew 24:36). Some say we cannot know the day and the hour when Jesus will return and gather His church to Himself. But others claim that Jesus was speaking only to people living in the first century, not to people living today.

      The Times and Seasons
      Just before He was caught up to heaven, Jesus’ disciples asked, “Lord, will You at this time restore the kingdom to Israel?” (Acts 1:6). Jesus replied specifically about what would happen “at this time.” In other words, His response was particularly directed to the first century generation in which they were living. He said, “It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in His own power.” (Acts 1:7) Will we also, then, be unable to know the times and the seasons?

      The Sons of Light Will Know
      The answer to this question is found in Matthew 24:34, in which Jesus says, “Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” “This generation” refers specifically to the people who live to see all of the terrifying events that Jesus had just mentioned as increasing immediately before His return; such as wars, rumors of wars, earthquakes in various places, widespread famine and disease, and the Antichrist’s rise to power. Paul validates this view, saying,
      But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief. Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness. 1 Thessalonians 5:1-5
      We will know, according to Paul, the times and the seasons. If we pay attention we will see the day of the Lord coming. This settles the controversy about knowing the times and the seasons, but what about knowing the day and hour?

      Those in Darkness Are Surprised
      1 Thessalonians 5 and Matthew 24:42-43 teach us that the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night. The master of the house will not know what hour the thief will come. The thief clearly represents the Lord. The master of the house was living in darkness and was not ready for the coming of the Lord. Unbelievers are the ones who will not know the hour of the Lord’s coming. Paul explicitly states that the coming of the Lord would only be a surprise to those living in darkness. 1 Thessalonians 5:4-5 indicates that, unlike the situation with unbelievers, the day of the Lord will not overtake His children of light as a thief in the night. If we keep studying the scriptures, and strive to understand current events in light of Bible prophecy, we will know the generation and the times and seasons. And as the time draws nearer, we may not only begin to understand the day of His return, but the hour also.

      The Harvest of the Earth
      In chapter 14 of Revelation we see a vision of Christ reaping a harvest.
      And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped. Revelation 14:14-16
      Jesus compares souls to a harvest in John 4:35. The reaping of the good harvest of the earth is the rapture of the church. This harvest that He reaps is immediately before the wrath of God, described in Revelation 14:17-20. Thus, the rapture of the church occurs just prior to God’s wrath.
      The harvest signals the end of this age, at which time Jesus Christ will come back for the rapture of His church and the Battle of Armageddon. Jesus prophesied of the harvest. We call it the “rapture,” although the word “rapture” is not found in the Bible. It is merely a word we use that means “the catching away”. 1 Thessalonians speaks of this “catching away.”
      “Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.” 1 Thessalonians 4:17

      Immediately After the Tribulation…
      Those of us who have been taught a pre-tribulation rapture cannot read Matthew 24 without concluding that Jesus placed the rapture immediately after the tribulation of those days.
      Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24:29-31

      Not a Salvation Issue
      The timing of the rapture seems to be the most controversial of all prophecy teachings. However, whether it will occur before, during, or after the tribulation has no bearing on your salvation. God can come for any one of us at any time. Jesus said in Matthew 24,
      Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Matthew 24:42-43

      At Any Time
      Whatever you believe about the timing of the rapture, or whether you even believe in Bible prophecy, if you were to die right now, you would be immediately removed from the earth to stand before your Creator for judgment. The Bible says, “Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men” (2 Corinthians 5:11). “And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?” (1 Peter 4:18) This is not the time to emphasize only the parts of the Bible we like, to make us feel good. But it is time for us to make sure that our lives are in line with all the teachings of God’s Word. If ever there were a time to walk closely to God, this is the time, as we see the day of the Lord drawing near.

        I think the day Jesus was crucified started the beginning of the end of days. I agree with everything in revelations. The time of the lord started a little over 2000 yrs ago. In the time of jesus. Our covenant with god is to give us time and one last chance to come to him before he decides to make a new time for his people. And his kingdom it’s all part of the divine spirit. I pray for anyone disagreeing or who is lost in these times. I believe the last two trumpets have already been blown. Do to since 2014 people have recorded strange metallic like sounds coming from the heavens. That to my is the literal representation of the coming of christ. DR. Phillip W. Mclarty said, here’s a thesis Good News
        – the lord is coming to save us from our fallen state. Bad News- hes coming. Amen and everyone have a blessed loving graceful day.

    Dear Rev. Baxter,
    I have been watching your program weekly since 2009 and you have been instrumental in my understanding of Bible Prophecy. I have passed your teachings on to family and friends and hopefully have sown the seeds so they will believe when these things come to pass.
    Firstly, thank you for your leadership and guidance in these perilous times. Secondly… DID THE 6TH TRUMPET SOUND TODAY????
    I look forward to you addressing recent events with Iran in the coming weeks. Thank you again for your Witness to the World and spreading the Word before these things come to pass; so when they do, the world may believe. I believe that you and Dr. Jack Van Impe are the two witnesses in the prophecy and you yourself are fulfilling the prophecies you teach.
    Thank you so much for your tireless Crusade to warn and inform the world in these perilous times. May God Bless you and Endtime Ministries; May God bless America and Israel; and may God bring peace to Jerusalem and prosperity to those who love thee.

    • Chad Riddle

      Since 2014 there’s has been a word wide phnaumana of great metallic sounds coming from the heavens. All over the planet never before documented or heard till 2014. So in that case it’s been 6 years already these have been all year every year since. 2021 will be the year it starts in my opinion. But god bless you and I’m praying for all.

  18. I have heard of seven years these trumpets will sound. But this seems like this wasn’t a span of seven years but way more so far. I would love help and explain if you can. Thank you

  19. Do believers hear the trumpets sounds? I’ve have done some bad stuff in my past, lost loved one from hatefulness, have become distance from loved ones. I’ll pray for him to forgive me? I dont pray pretty much at night. I want God to take my to heaven! I want to read where can I order a bible or any kind of book?

      The New Jerusalem will be with the Lord forever, those who are judged will be thrown into the lake of fire.
      Revelation 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
      12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

      Revelation 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.5 And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

      Hello Linda,
      the scriptures tell us to have nothing to do with witchcraft or anything of this nature. Leviticus 19:31 Regard not them that have familiar spirits, neither seek after wizards, to be defiled by them: I am the Lord your God.
      Leviticus 20:27 A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.

  21. are they supposed to be audible or not cause I I heard a trumpet like sound that went on for far to long, at first I thought it was a car or a plane, it drifted out for a couple seconds then came back

  22. Wait im a bit scare im about to cry but if its true some people have heard the trumpet but not me i watch these boy that heard the 7 trumpets of heaven its i never k about these but now that i k i wont be able to sleep now wonder why im always having dreams sometimes.

    • Hi you all that are scared about the end time! Just to say; if you believe in God almighty and his only son Jesus that came and died on His Cross for all of our Sins, and you say it with your mouth that Jesus is Lord, that is your first thing to do. Then, you admit that you are a sinner and you ask Him for forgiveness for all your sins, and believe He forgived you, but you have to forgive all your enemies that did arms to you and loveones, And then, you repeant from your sins and Act accordelly to His commandments, and have faith in Him then you should be born again so that would made you strong in the holly spirit and you would not be scared no more. P.S. Pray everyday and night before going to bed for his protection and pray the our father who art in heaven prayer and asked Him all your needs throu his son Jesus name and you will be at peace of being frighten. I’m talking from many years experience of encounting a lot of phanomina activities but I’m not scared of them because of my prayers and asking God for his protection. P.S. The bible says people should read the bible and the end time to prepared ourselfs from evil manipulation to scared us but Jesus says, do not be afraid in those time, have faith in him that he is taking care of you. Good luck and God bless us all.

      Hello Izzy,

      If we are truly born again, our sins are forgiven. Once a person is filled with the Holy Ghost, you will find that it is easy to resist the temptation of sin. If we are putting on that full armor of God and praying in the Spirit, staying in the Word. When a person has repented and been baptized in the name of Jesus, scripture tells us that our sins are remitted. Jesus paid that price for us. So if you stumble or even fall, get back up brush yourself off, ask for forgiveness and keep pressing on.

    • Doug Norvell

      Everyone is going to be judged. But, if you are born again believer, you can have forgiveness. A person should always pray the Lord can make a way around our drastic circumstances. As a child of GOD, we should never intend to do or say anything that will harm others.

    • Doug Norvell

      Matthew 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

  23. Charles shaheen

    I found this very interesting I have been saved and I bel one god I just pray that I’ll be going to heaven when the time comes I’ve done some pretty bad things in the past and have asked for forgiveness I pray he forgives me

  24. dose this mean we are going to all die as soon as the last trumpet sounds?
    i looked more at this and NASA said it was the earths backround noise as its moving i guess. I really dont want to die or have more trumpents sound off. Is there anyway to prevent this from happeing?

    • Doug Norvell

      Hello Frederick,

      The next Trumpet to sound in our opinion is the 6th Trumpet, this is what it says;
      Revelation 9:13 And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,14 Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.15 And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.17 And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.18 By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.19 For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.20 And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:21 Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.

      Notice the scripture indicates that the 4 angels that are bound in the Euphrates. These angels are evil angels or they would not be bound. These will cause this conflict to escalate in the area of Iran, Iraq, Turkey and Syria. So, indeed, the US going to war with Iran could turn into the 6th Trumpet war very quickly. Notice the result would be 1/3 of mankind will die. This sounds to us as if it will be a nuclear war.
      I’m not saying that it is the 6th Trumpet, only that it could be. We will have to wait and see what happens. However, that prophecy is looming on the horizon.

  25. Brother Irvin, thank you for enlighten the understanding 7 Trumpets. I truly believe we are so close for the “Rapture of the saints”. What a great event that will take place. Thank you for ur teaching and l praise God for your ministries and others also who are true of God. I pray many more millions will come to Jesus before its too late.
    Love in Jesus!

  26. Being christian we shall not worry about the things that is happening, instead we should feel surprised and lucky that our journey to heaven is very soon…. Our living earth, for us is just an inn where we can stay for one night…. But the heaven is for eternal where no dark is found and no food is required…. All days will be full of joy and chorus…..

  27. William

    I’m absolutely amazed at this. I was trying to interpret most of these events like you guys have, but you really blew me out of the water with this. Only seconds ago did I realize that I could use past events as possible, yet relevant data for the Trumpets themselves. I noticed that very recently, we’ve had a mountain fall into the ocean of sorts. The Glacier, which is more of a literal interpretation of what Jesus said in the bible. But taking it into a more hinting nature, and rereading the passage that talks about the first trumpet, I can see why the Incident at Hiroshima could take the cake. God essentially created Einstein so we could sound the first trumpet. Amazing when you think about it. That guy is a grandmaster chess player’s master.

    But never in a million years would I have connected Chernobyl to Wormwood. Also had no idea that Chernobyl even MEANT “Wormwood.” Pretty amazing stuff. And also for the 6th trumpet where Jesus talked about the army of 200,000,000 I did think it was China for the most part. But then again, as you mentioned, the Islamic terrorist group ISIS, could probably essentially be thought of as just as powerful. And it would make sense because they claim to be the cause of multiple acts of terror around the world. Plaguing nations, and corrupting many people.

    I haven’t read the bible yet. Just started really. Became Christian not too long ago. It took me a while to come around to it due to my continuously curious and scientific mind. But there were things that happened to me when I was younger that I couldn’t really explain to anyone else but Christians. They just seemed to get it and didn’t look at me like I was crazy. They actually tried to understand and help or give advice in whichever way they could. I’m grateful to those people. And then also I believe I’ve found a way for science and religion to coexist. A loophole if you will.

    • So… I am also half worried that I am not one who deserves heaven since I keep screwing up even after my baptism. Most of it being sex before marriage. What about my kids born outside marriage? I worry for my kids the most. Some of it being I also curse and have trouble with curing this habit. Anyway this is frightening, yet amazing all at once. Also one more thing…. Ive heard that not once in the bible did Jesus call himself a Christian, is this true? If so are we not to call ourselves a Christian, but more so a believer in love and light and out father and Jesus christ?

      • Doug Norvell

        Hello Kammy,

        Please look over this link :
        Really search it out and make sure that you have repented, and been baptized in Jesus Name for the remission of sins and received the Holy Ghost. If you have done these things, then my next question would be are you in a truth teaching church? If you need help finding a church I would be happy to assist you. Email me

        The Followers of Jesus were first called the followers of the way, Acts 9:And Saul, yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went unto the high priest,2 And desired of him letters to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he found any of this way, whether they were men or women, he might bring them bound unto Jerusalem.
        Acts 22:4 And I persecuted this way unto the death, binding and delivering into prisons both men and women.

        The Bible says they were first called Christians at Antioch. Acts 11:26 And when he had found him, he brought him unto Antioch. And it came to pass, that a whole year they assembled themselves with the church, and taught much people. And the disciples were called Christians first in Antioch.

        I hope this is helpful, Lord bless you.

  28. Dr. Michael Sampson

    God anointed trump in office for a reason. The covenant of the lord will protect him’ as they
    try to impeach him. They do not want any president ‘ they can’t control or buy off. Jesus Christ
    is Lord ,and trump will win in 2020.

    • Rebecca Fry

      Yes I agree the church will not be here during the tribulation. Read Revelations 3: 7-13. It explains it here. there are other scriptures too. We are not in the tribulation. We are not in the wrath of God. That Is also explained in other scriptures.

      • Doug Norvell

        John was told in Revelation 1:19 Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter.

        The things that thou has seen, is Chapter 1, the things which are is Chapters 2&3. The letters to the 7 churches are 7 literal churches that existed in the time of John, the letters are to those churches. Not to the Bride of Christ.
        Chapter 4-22 are the things which shall be hereafter.
        Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold, a door was opened in heaven: and the first voice which I heard was as it were of a trumpet talking with me; which said, Come up hither, and I will shew thee things which must be hereafter.
        The Wrath of GOD is not the Tribulation. The 3 1/2 years of Tribulation is the wrath of Satan. Revelation 12 tells us this.

        Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.(The scripture then goes on to tell us the devil’s wrath is for a time, times and half a time).13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
        14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

        This same measure of time is given to us in Daniel 7 & 12. Speaking of the Antichrist making war with the Saints and the time of great trouble/tribulation.

        Daniel 7:25 And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

        Daniel 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
        2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.5 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
        (This is the Great Tribulation/ Devils wrath).

        Jesus Himself said immediately after the Tribulation, He will return and send His angles to gather His elect.

        Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
        (This scripture depicts the Rapture & notice what is happening here, Sun darkened, Moon doesn’t give her light, stars fall from Heaven, great shaking, tribes of the earth mourn.)

        Revelation 6 shows the same events, only this time it is showing us God’s wrath! Same time, same things happening.

        Revelation 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
        14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
        15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

        There are many other scriptures that prove the rapture happens at the second coming of Jesus Christ.

    • Niecy Willis

      If you believe that #45 is Christ-like, when did Jesus ever tell a lie, not show love, kindness and forgiveness. Jesus came to die for the world, so we could be saved, when did #45 ever do anything for anyone that did not benefit him and his “brand” first? Jesus Christ said to suffer the children to come into him and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of God. But #45 cages children and do them harm because they want to live a better life. Do you honestly believe #45 is the Christ-like one that is to come before Jesus? Remember Mary, Joseph and Jesus where refugees fleeing their Homeland to save Jesus from Herod the king even sending his troops to find Jesus so he could have the Christ Child killed because Jesus was prophesied to become King.
      Answer the questions truthfully, who seems more “anti-christ”?

  29. Elton Renaud

    OBAMA made a statement, WE ARE NO LONGER A CHRISTIAN NATION. that is what an anti-christ would say.
    THE POPE the only reason the CATHLIC CHURCH picked this POPE was, thay needed his MILLIONS now we have the FALSE PROPHET in office.
    TRUMP will be CAPTURED N TORCHERED like CHRIST was. He is the CHRIST LIKE ONE. the one that comes first, before JESUS comes.

  30. Elton Renaud

    The bible points to Native Americans as HIS PEOPLE. He said, HIS PEOPLE was slaughtered, n no doubt the JEWS were slaughtered, but so were NATIVE AMERICANS. He says, MY PEOPLE WALK THE ROAD OF TIERS. IT WAS THE CHEROKEE INDIANS, that walked the road of tiers. He says, MY PEOPLE CARVE TOTEM POLES. The ESKIMOS CARVE TOTEMS. He says, MY PEOPLE PUT THEIR FAITH IN THE SPIDERS WEB, sounds like a dream catcher to me. I see that He is pointing to Native Americans as HIS PEOPLE.

  31. James Coletta

    As a student of Bible prophecies I only agree that the rapture does occur at the 7th trumpet(ICorinth. 15). And if we are After the 5th trumpet What do you say are the demon locust? Cuz, I haven’t been stung, and I am not one of the 144,000.
    God Bless, James

  32. Brenda Eickhorst

    I still don’t understand the explanation in this article regarding the fourth trumpet…how did the fall of the wall shorten days? Please explain and thank you!

    • Doug Norvell

      Hello Brenda,
      I have attached an excerpt from our 7 Trumpets manuscript that may help answer your question. The main reason, Pastor Baxter believes the Berlin Wall coming down was part of this prophecy. Is because after that event, we started hearing the New World Order. It was as if, the Berlin Wall started everything speeding up towards globalism.

  33. connie

    Real or Not, we should pray and believe that there is God above all things. We’re almost at the midst year 3.5 years, the battle of between evil and good. We have to remember that our body is the temple of God.

  34. Steven Feagley

    It says that before the end there will be young men that will have dreams of the end and older men shall have visions. I have seen Jerusalem twice and the second time the city was up in smoke. I seen twice a nuclear cloud the first time with four rows of every race on Earth the second time the mushroom cloud as clear as day. I was on my way to work when it happened. The second time (exactly 24 hrs, same place, same time and distanation) the road in front of me disappeared.

    • I had a dream last week that I was sleeping in some house. When I woke up I looked outside and saw a line stretching in both directions as far as I could see, which was about ten feet wide, and everything within the line was just completely burnt to a crisp. It was about ten feet away from the house and I didn’t hear the burning or whatever happened, I only saw it when I woke up in the dream.

    • Doug Norvell

      Hello Betty,
      Unfortunately we do not have the answer. The Lord told John, not to write about the 7 Thunders. So, until God reveals it, if He reveals it, we will not know.

  35. Shola Adedeji

    Four facts everyone must understand.

    The devil is the prince of the power of the power of the airwaves.
    He is the father of all lies.
    He goes about like a lion looking for who to devour.
    He is the father of all lies.

    If you are using the lie-box known as the television or secular claims of history in order to discern scripture then you’re in deep trouble.

    The media is owned by the devil; all aspects of the secular is owned and controlled by the devil. You cannot use their claims as metrics for scriptural understanding because all their claims are fake.

    It’s not real, it’s just satanic deception.

    You think Chernobyl was real, it was just a tv show for the sleeping sheep.

    Let Yah be true and every man a liar.

    Even the heathen know that history is written by the victor, and yet there are people of the church who think that it can be used to discern the times and scripture.

    You guys are in big trouble.

    You are not supposed to be of the world because the world is nothing but lies, only Father’s Word is True.

    All your reasons and rationale in this article are fruit from the rotten tree. It relies on worldly claims to validate its scriptural claims.
    But- the world cannot be trusted as its ruler is the evil one.

    Repent and be blessed.

    • While we don’t want to under estimate the power of the devil, Satan is not in control. Scripture (Ephesians 2:2) does refer to Satan as prince of the power of the air (not the same as the air waves!), Psalm 47:7 tells us that “God is King over all the earth; sing praises with understanding.” Accordingly, it is God Who is Ruler and in control — not Satan. Also, you listed only 3 things (not 4) we need to know about Satan. I would appreciate it if you would present your views in specifics instead of generalities. Can you take just one point you are in disagreement with and explain — in specifics — your position? Some historians are Christian; some scientists are strong in the Christian faith; we can’t make blanket statements that there is no truth outside of the truth found in God’s Holy Word to us. I suppose that even you and I occasionally speak the truth. ;>)

    Early this morning, while it was still dark, I suddenly woke up without a cause and the thought of trying to stay awake was on my mind. Since it was still dark I wanted to go back to sleep, but as soon as I closed my eyes I heard three consecutive horn blasts. By the time I realized what had happened it finished and i was thinking about it for most of this morning.

  37. Stephen Newdell

    I wish I could write to you personally to say “thank you”. I am one of the many end time students always looking and often confused by different views. I’ll continue to read your materials and look for videos on line. I’m in The Philippines and shipping anything here is too expensive. Thank you for this latest Grand New vista — a different thesis as to the right way to see the Trumpet judgments. sn

  38. Jeremy

    I don’t wish to be a bit of a party pooper but I have done extensive theological training in South Africa and know that if you apply good hermeneutics, there is no way that a passage of scripture can mean anything now that it did not mean to the original hearers or in light of a similar context. We must “Exegete” (Get the message from the passage) the passage, not “Isogete” (read what you want to hear into the passage). I do believe the eclectic way of reading revelation “that Revelation applies to people throughout the ages” but to make such a bold statement, you should really be sure of what you are saying which is impossible unless claiming omniscience.
    The truth about the 7 trumpets and the seals is reviled in Revelation without having to try knit-pick for things that aren’t there. Revelation tells us that these are not judgments on humanity or why would the martyr’s call out only a few verses later for God to bring judgement (in the Greek indicating that it has not begun yet), in fact Revelation tells us that these are warning signs to the unbeliever to repent and to turn to God because He knows that time is short. Revelation then goes on to say that those who do not repent given these warnings will be handed over in judgement to death.
    Therefore I implore you to not be over superstitious but rejoice that Yahweh is a loving God who sends these warning as a reminder for us to keep facing him. These signs are not restricted to the ones that are mentioned above (Those are conspiracies) but the signs are showing suffering and the effects of sin in the world but look where it is all coming from…. the entire message of Revelation is that though it all looks bad… it is God ordaining it and that he is always in control even when we are persecuted or get the bad stick or are even perfectly happy… God is the one doing that, he wants that for His Glory. Please consider 1 John 4:3 when you get told far fetched things claiming to be scriptural. The Apartheid government in SA in 1048-94 thought they were abiding by scripture (that is how far people are deceived)

  39. I had a dream in late 2013-early 2014; I should have written down the date but I didn’t. I had asked the Lord that night what was going to happen because I had heard some disturbing news on television (to me at least). I don’t have a lot of these types of dreams so please believe me when I say I know this was from the Lord. I was in a house. I knew something was coming; I thought it was a nuclear bomb. I went outside. There was a large field with what looked like tall and thick green grass. I looked up at the sky and there was a bright light. I surrendered right there to Jesus like I knew I was going to die. I felt Him in my heart and I just opened up my heart to Him completely. I saw a light coming behind the first light that outshone the first light then it over took it in brightness. I began to rise off the earth upward. When I got up high in the sky in the clouds, I could see the first light. It resembled a comet-shaped fireball. I followed its trajectory, looking at it, toward the earth and saw a city with tall buildings. I woke up. One other note. In my dream I remember thinking, hey my neck doesn’t hurt any more, when I began rising up away from the earth and could look up with my head all the way back. I didn’t know what that meant. In 2015 I had to have a neck fusion and I can’t do that now if I tried. The thing that I can’t stop thinking about is that those who belong to Jesus are not appointed to wrath. As far as timing of this rapture, if I am interpreting my own dream correctly, it will be just before nuclear war or just before wrath is poured out. Anyone have any ideas on the green fields? Also, we will have our own personality, but perfected. We will have no pain, not even a twinge. Our hearts must be open to the Lord; I can’t explain it, but that’s how we communicate with Him. I hope this encourages someone; it is encouraging me to write about it. This is the first time I’ve “talked” about it publicly.

  40. Delia

    INovember 7th, 2018, approximately 11:00pm, I heard trumpets. A song that came from the sky that lasted about a minute-minute and a half long. It started directly after a bolt of lightening and a hard clamp of thunder. It sounded majestic, intense, beautiful, very unusual & mysterious. I have never in my life heard it before.

  41. Maria

    About a month ago I was walking my little dog when I heard very loud trumpet like noises coming from the sky. It persisted. I looked around and no one else seemed disturbed in the least. I too felt that Notre Dame Cathedral spire was a sign.
    It feels odd to ask for signs but I’ve been asking for some.
    “ Behold a Virgin shall conceive, and His name shall be called Emmanuel!” And “ Womderful! Counselor. The mighty Lord, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace!

  42. Wow, I didn’t expect that five of the seven trumpets have already come to pass. If the fifth instrument had already sounded, the Bible’s prophecy about the End Times might already be near. I think that the sixth trumpet is about to sound soon, but I’ll read some books online to see if it’s really near or not.

    There are many sets of trumpets. To do not be lead astray, recall that only the Father knows the time of events, not the son. Hold to true love and do not let it grow cold, and no other burden should be placed upon you. Repent to yourself, and to others, and to God Most High.

    Be at peace. Do not freak out. Do not do anything rash. Go in love and peace. Listen for the next sounding. Blessed are the ones who believe me and spread these words.

    -ps: The angels walk amongst you. BE NICE. Be happy. Believe what you will, Worship God (Most High). Do not hurt one another.

    3 commandments:
    1. Live a good life
    2. Do not harm others
    3. Believe in (God Most High)

    • Your response leaves me wondering, what is your belief system? Where did you get the 3 commandments you listed? I am of the Christian faith. Your response strongly suggests that you are a nice person. However, we are not saved by our works, but by grace through faith:

      Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. 10 For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God has before ordained that we should walk in them.

      Nor are we saved by believing god exists:

      James 2:19 You believe that there is one God; you do well: the devils also believe, and tremble.

      The demons believe in God; yet, they are not saved. The Bible is clear as to how we can be saved:

      Romans 10:9 That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved.

      Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, . . .

      Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

      John 14:6 Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man comes to the Father, but by Me.

      Peace and love!

    • Tonight I was laying in bed after not being able to sleep asking God over and over for a sign if I was going to heaven or hell and I suddenly caught myself thinking about the Notre Dame Cathedral catching fire after standing for over 800 years and going through wars and revolutions and plagues and then suddenly I hear a horn outside my window that sounded like a car in the distance and I noticed that it was fading out and then it got louder but and it sounded off for maybe 2 minutes continuously. I believe this was a sign given to me that the 6th Trumpet or event has sounded off/started.

    • Thee end is nigh my fellow Christians. Thee be a time when good and evil shall stand at thy face with thy Holy Spirit above all and shall be judged by God. There will be a time when thy Son of God will come back to us and deliver us from the twisted ness of the devil.

  44. I had a dream about the rapture. It was a war, a very bloody, violent war. It was between the Israel’s and the whole world. The small Israelite army won. Remember there was a promise made to Abraham that is real would always be protected through him. In his first coming they rejected him as messiah but he still didn’t give up hope. Anyway the Israelites ended up winning the war. But as the war ended he spoke. He spoke through a loud voice in the sky then the Israelites lowered their weapons dropped down and worshipped him. They invited believers to join them as a family. So if you can, just have faith in him as a believer. All you need is the faith of a mustard seed to make a big huge tree. Spread the word. Get everyone you can to believe. He is coming. But when he does it will already be to late. It will be to late to believe. So therefore anyone that is a nonbeliever needs to start believing as soon as possible.

      There is so much confusion the whole Christian world is confused and totally unprepared for the second coming of Jesus and the different theories of what these trumpet s mean.The secret rapture post trib pre trib mid trib. People having visions each of them different.when Jesus returns the whole world will know for every eye shall see him including those that pierced him.

  45. About 6 or 7 years ago, I was awakened by a loud sound coming from outside. I was confused, it was coming from outside. It sounded like a horn and I wondered if the high school marching band was up the street warming up for a parade, as they always gather on a side street not far from where I was. The horn sounded out of tune and I went outside and it was loud and coming from nowhere. I looked around and expected to see neighbors gathering outside because it was pretty loud. No one was outside. It was around 7 a.m. I went and grabbed my phone to try to record it. My phone was old, but I recorded, although a car passed and drowned it out. Then it stopped. I listened back and you could hear the horn, but not loudly. If this wasn’t one of the trumpets sounding, I don’t know what is. It was a horn, though it wasn’t a pretty sound because it sounded out of tune.

    I agree with me Baxter’s revelation on this topic , I do however believe the invasion of Gog the leader of Magog invaded the land of people living in peace 1000 years without walls , in 1948 by the Eastern Russian khazarian converts to Babylonian talmudic jews a Turkish Mongolian Huns tribe that existed in the Caucasus mountains between the Black Sea and Caspian, in the 7th century, please read the 13th tribe by Arthur Koestler , a communist ashkenazi Jew historian , also much more information on this , ashkenazi Jews are descendants of Japheth thru gomer to Magog , the Star of David did not exist it’s the star of moloch , adopted by Amschell Bouer to Redshield it Rothschilds owner of 80 percent of Palestine who is Gog the leader of Magog the khazarian turkish hun converts to the satanic Babylonian Judaism Who has control of the untrue worlds currency especially mystery Babylon the United States with her statue of Ishtar in the harbor as described in the Bible even its building , would in joy your thoughts on this if the synagogue of satan has not power over you good day Roger Glasgow

    What signified the fourth trumpet? Have we moved back to a 360 day orbit around the sun? Thank you for your work. I want to help. Wishing you much courage, strength, and peace. Your friend in Jesus Christ, Greg

  48. Nathan Guyton

    this is fate this whole page is because it says in Revelation that the seven trumpets will sound when Jesus comes to get his people you need to read your Bibles and actually learn something

  49. BoBo Jones

    Love all this talk about “The Rapture”. I love trumpets. They are loud, precise, musical, to the point to get your attention. Can’t wait. Book of Revelation. Isaiah and Judges are a few favorites. Everyone should read 1st & 2nd Book of Adam And Eve. (Grown children kicked out of The Garden of Eden-everything scares them!!). All praise to The Most High.

  50. David Musond

    Life serving messages. please, keep educating us. And kindly, explain more on the ifrsy seal and what it really reprents here on earth. And also, explain Genesis,’in the beginning, was word, the word was with God and and the word was God. Further, explain on adam and Eve AND Lillith. And from which family did CANE an ABEL married?

  51. I had a dream a couple of years ago where I was in a room that had Windows all around it and as I was looking out one window I saw this whirlwind going around and around with flames of fire inside this whirlwind and it was getting closer. I looked out the opposite window and saw the same thing. And in this dream I remember thinking that this was like the chariots of fire and I knew that this was the armies of God were gathering.

  52. Karen Lockwood

    I had a dream & in my dream there was commotion then I heard a loud train…I looked around & I didn’t see any train…Something made me look up & the sky opened & channel 2 was in the opening of the sky…The train was Gabriels horn & channel 2 being in the opening of the sky is God telling us that everyone will see Jesus on His return…

    • You do not have to be afraid if you know Jesus in your heart! He is with you and you will be safe with Him. Just read the Scriptures. Revelation is difficult to understand but get a study guide or look online for help in interpreting it for you.

    • I’m not afraid for myself as I know god is in my heart but what I’m afraid about are family members they don’t believe they aren’t baptized they don’t have him in their heart I’ve tried to explain it to them and talk to them about how scared I am for them about how I cry think what could happen to them but they don’t listen what should I do I’m so scared I’ve asked god to forgive them and to help change their minds but I don’t know how much longer I can wait it’s so hard to think about them going to hell and not having eternal happiness what should I do someone please help.

  53. Quote—-This event also marks the end of human government and the establishment of the Kingdom of God, on earth, for the next one thousand years.–unquote–Really?But how? Rev 21:1 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
    2 And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.—- If we are already on earth,WHY would we be coming down from heaven? Rev 20:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
    Mal 4:3 And ye shall tread down the wicked; for they shall be ashes under the soles of your feet in the day that I shall do this, saith the LORD of hosts.
    Also,if we were to be on Earth for 1000 years,WHY would Jesus meet us in the air?

      Hello Marcos,

      The Fourth Trumpet
      Let‘s look now at the fourth trumpet. If World War I was the first trumpet, World War II was the second trumpet, and if Chernobyl, the world‘s most horrible nuclear accident, was the third trumpet, what could the fourth trumpet be? The fourth trumpet is described in Revelation 8:12:
      And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
      The sun is smitten, the moon is smitten—the sun does not shine for one-third part of the day and the moon does not shine for one-third part of the night. Of all of these trumpets, the one that seems most certain is the Chernobyl trumpet. That happened in 1986. If they are in order, the fourth is the next one due to happen. The next question becomes: is there a chance that it has happened already, and, if so, did we miss it?
      Shortening of Days
      Let me turn your attention to another prophesy, Matthew 24:22. Jesus gave a very interesting prophecy concerning the time of the Great Tribulation. He said in Matthew 24:21-22,
      For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect‘s sake those days shall be shortened.
      Here Jesus prophesies of a shortening of days. The question becomes are the number of days shortened or is the length of the days shortened? It has to refer to the length of days. Here‘s why. God‘s Word cannot be changed. It is forever settled in heaven. In the book of Daniel 12:11-12 it says,

      And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
      This is a prophecy concerning the time involved during the reign of the Antichrist. God explicitly says that it will continue for 1,290 days, and blessed is he that waits to the 1,335th day. God is very specific, and numbers the days exactly. If He were going to shorten the number of days, these prophecies could no longer be true. However, He explicitly numbers them, and that cannot be tampered with. To do that would change God‘s Word. Instead, He will shorten the length of the days and nights. Has this already occurred? Probably.
      My wife had an experience with the Lord concerning this prophecy. She asked the Lord how He would shorten the days. God spoke to her, and said, ― I already have.‖ She asked how. He said, ―I have speeded everything up and people don‘t realize it.‖ These days, time is flying for everyone. Consider this: the thing that makes a day and night is the rotation of the earth. If God speeds up the rotation, the resulting days and nights would be shortened.
      If time has been speeded up, and an hour is not as long as it used to be, that means that a runner should not be able to run a four-minute mile any more. If the clock is moving faster, it should be take five minutes or more to run the four-minute mile. A professor from Indiana University provided the answer: the Theory of Relativity states that time and speed are relative, one to the other.
      I still do not fully understand how this prophecy will come to pass, nor if will even be detectible here on earth at all.

    • You ever read your bible? We are not in the tribulation. The church IS removed BEFORE the tribulation starts! Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. 1Thessalonians 5:9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, See it? WE , the Church IS NOT Children of God’s wrath! 2Thessalonians 2:7 For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way.
      2Thessalonians 2:8 And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming. It cannot start until the church is removed.

  54. stung!!!

    Did anyone else hear the Fifth trumpet of God Almighty sound when oil wells were lit ablaze during “Operation Desert Storm”?
    During the Gulf War when all the oil wells were lit ablaze I was attacked by a demon on three separate occasions all at night. This is what happened. While I slept a demon flew through my window and attack me. The spirit inside me fought this demon briefly until I awoke. Then it made me take over. I leaped out of bed trying to defend myself. This demon was horrid and spun circles around me thrashing through my soul with its hands, then it left as fast as it came. The demon radiated from the pains associated with the abyss. He was like a coal pulled from the fire, with the pains of the abyss Rev 9, 3. This attack happened on three separate occasions as I have stated. all on separate nights during the time frame when the oil wells had been lit ablaze in the Middle East. The third time it attacked me however was different from the rest. As before the demon attacked me, but this time I had enough since to command it to leave in the name of Jesus Christ. What happened next is even more amazing. After commanding this demon to leave in the name of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit delivered me outside my bedroom into the hallway. The demon followed. We were brought into the presence of the Lord. The Demon stood to my left and grabbing my hand, it placed its tail on top of my left hand. It was the sting of the scorpion and it went like this. It sent waves of fire through my soul Rev 9, 10. The pain was so sever that I couldn’t scream. Unconditionally, I looked straight up and said “Father please help me”. The demon then left.
    This all happened after being seduced into trying transcendental meditation, which caused spiritual bondage to witchcraft / demonic forces. Maybe the spiritual bondage occurred after playing a Ouija board or Tarot cards as a young boy. I’m not quite sure. They appeared at that time just to be games, and were sold in the kids section at stores or at least the Ouija board was. I had a lot of spiritual warfare after participating in these so called “games”. What I am sure of is that prior to being attacked by this demon, I was forced to go through the Illuminati’s esoteric initiation performed through altered states of consciousness / transcendental meditation assisted with witchcraft / demonic forces. Why I say demonic forces is that I believe all witchcraft to be the powers of demons / the Devil. I was forced to go through said esoteric initiation through methods including witchcraft, demonology, and subversive acts of terrorism. The methods of witchcraft included mind control / manipulation, heart palpitations, witchcraft dreams causing sleep depravation, powerful visions, and many other forms. In said ceremony I was instructed to except the worship of one of their many “demonic gods”. They informed me that in excepting one of there gods I accepted them all. One of there gods was the Devil, another they named Jesus, but they appeared to have a demon for every occasion. They informed me through methods of telepathy , that in accepting the worship of one, I accepted them all. What better way to join all religions of the world together under one banner of 666 spiritually enslaving society?
    David Spengler of the United Nations says that all people must go through a esoteric initiation and worship Lucifer to enter the New Age of Enlightenment. Helen Blavatsky calls it a Christ like consciousness, universal mind set. Benjamin Cream states that after said initiation all its members will be able to hear ancient wisdom spoken telepathically at the same moment by ascended Masters. I knew nothing of this group at that time or there Luciferian agenda of a One World Government. Take a guess what method is used for this initiation? I bet you know now. Have you heard of the New Age Movement, or its affiliation with “Free” Masonry? Do you know what a unholy baptism is or the term Kundalini.
    To the best of my knowledge this is the method Satan’s Secret Society uses to distribute the “spiritual mark of the beast”, and cause spiritual captivity Revelation 13, 10. Have you received your spiritual stamp of acceptance? If so, did you take it on the forehead becoming a spiritual slave of evil, or on the right hand a servant of the Devil himself? Does this sound hard to believe? Here are a few scriptures giving in sight. Revelation 13, 10, If anyone is to go into captivity, into captivity they will go . This is spiritual captivity to witchcraft / demonic forces. Naham 3, 4, who enslaved nations by her witchcraft. Revelation 18, 23, By your magic spell all nations were led astray. Hebrews 2:15 states by there fear of death they are held in bondage. Witchcraft / demonic powers are very real. Thank you Jesus for the Holy spirit and your Angels.
    There is a way out, but it has been difficult for me. Revelation 12, 11, Those who overcame, overcame by the blood of the lamb and the “word” of their testimony. They didn’t love their own lives so much as to shrink from death. Hebrews 2, 15, By their fear of death they are held in spiritual captivity / bondage. Satan’s “Secret” Society isn’t very secret anymore! It is like a giant octopus with many tentacles reaching far and wide.
    Here is the rest of the story. Three to four nights later the demon returned in the early am @ about 3am. He wasn’t alone, Satan / Apollyon and the demon’s twin brother was with him. They hovered in the air above the ground, before the olive tree in our back yard. I could see them as the spirit in me manifested them to me! Satan hovered in the middle while the demons were on either side of him. The demon on his left had been thrown into the lake of fire for what he did to me. He radiated like a coal pulled from the fire what seemed to be 15’x15′. He was lit up like a Christmas tree! Graciously yours baptized by fire the witness! Who will believe this testimony? God will be my witness! Located in California. Recommended information Fake truth Movement Exposed 1-12 on you tube. It has insight into who has received the spiritual stamp on there right hand.

    On January 13th of 2017, I received a dream, I was traveling down a country road, as I was looking through the windshield I could see many military jets, maybe hundreds or even thousands I don’t know exactly but it was many that filled the sky. On each jet it carried a symbol of a nation. Out of nowhere those jets began to fall, no missiles fired, just falling on its own.
    Then I completely woke up from my dream with anxiety and in a cold sweat.
    January 20th of 2017 Trump signed papers to become president. I felt the exact same anxiety when I was woke up from my dream.
    Now if we awknowledge our surroundings, aren’t nations already falling, people are dying in other countries over religion.
    Mexico is at war, while Trump is trying to build a wall, while innocent people are dying, chips are being implanted, great sickness that leads to death… Great earthquakes are taking place, great fires,
    huge weather changes… and the list goes on and on!
    The time isn’t maybe I will abide in God’s Laws tomorrow, the time is now!
    No one knows the time or hour, always be prepared like it’s our last day here on earth.
    Thank you so much for sharing this information, I received alot of clarification!
    Lord bless everyone in every nation, provide grace through every trial and tribulation, may we show love and mercy upon everyone, just as You have with us, may Your Laws never depart from us, pour Your salvation upon the lost in the MIGHTY and POWERFUL NAME of JESUS I pray…
    Amen & Amen!

    In my rapture dream the world was still at peace. No war until we get taken. I was 14 when I dreampt it. I am like 57 today…and I still believe. God does Not make mistakes. It is just because of His Holy Spirit in me. The Holy Spirit keeps the world peaceful.

  57. No failure

    The only thing we humans can do is really focus on a strong and very close relationship with the most high almighty Jesus christ/heavenly father God. That is all we need to do these events are not our concern… Our concern is focusing on building spiritual inheritance WITHIN THE KINGDOM OF GOD. Do not worry about these events Matthew 10:28… FOCUS on spiritual life and growth, always… We are more than these biological fleshly vehicles. Remember the source/essence of our true existence is infinite energy, we are not bodies with a soul, rather souls with bodies.

  58. Read all about it in the Works of Josephus, the last Hasmoneon High Priest and Jewish historian. It happened in the first century. The bible was not printed until the 16th century. God finished his work in the first century but religion wants to keep people under her authority. Come out of her, my people! Matt 23:8-10. 2 Cor 3:17; Heb 8;13 the old was passing away; 1 Pet 4:7 The End of all things was NEAR to them. End of the old covenant age. End of mediators, priests, prophets, middle men interceding between God and mankind. Reconciliation has come. 2 Cor 15 20-24.

  59. Trumpets were used for the ingathering an dispersion of the Israelites only. The Sons of Aaron were to blow the trumpets, limiting these blasts to only the legitimate priests of the Aaronic priesthood. We have a new priesthood, a new city with a new temple and form of worship, made of living stones; therefore these trumpets ceased with the 7th being blown in the first century. 66-70 AD, 3.5 yrs war that destroyed the Harlot of Babylon (Jerusalem) and her dignity as QUEEN being stripped from her and the law required that she be stripped naked and burnt in the fire. Revelation was written to ‘bondservants’ and only the nation of Israel were servants in the family motif waiting to be adopted so they could inherit their MaSTER’s possessions. We are not bondservants nor ‘firstfruits.’ The bible explains the bible. Adam gifted mankind with spiritual death and God used mediators, middle men to intercede between the two separated parties, only occasionnally did god speak ‘face to face’ with anyone until reconcilaition came in the first century. Now anyone, anytime, anywhere can speak to Father without a mediator. Reconciliation has come. Jesus gifted mankind with life by reconciling the world to their Father. ‘No longer will they say, ‘Know the Lord, for they will ALL know me, from the least to the greatest.’

    Do you have relationship or religion? Religion has lied to keep people under their authority. Matt 23:8-10. Jesus forbid spiritual authorities. We have direct access to our Father now. Those who have been reconciled to their Father have the same TEACHER the disciples had. 2 Cor 3:17.

  61. “hail and fire mixed with blood falling to the ground, and approximately 33% of all of the grass and trees in the known world destroyed.”

    This sounds like dramatic climate change to me… where it could be heavy snow, hail on one side of a country while it’s so hot it’s scorching the earth on the other side with fire. While grave destruction to our natural resources caused by deforestation could be approaching 33% in due time.

    While there was great destruction of natural resources in WW1&2… it wasn’t 33% of the world’s natural resources being destroyed. It would take a cataclysmic drought from climate change to cause that, coupled with continued deforestation.

    It seems as if we’re nearing a time where the 1st trumpet could come. Trump the president is quite popular, is it possible his name Trump, being similar to trumpet is the first trumpet?

    Perhaps mass bloodshed is coming next from a great war… to complete the first trumpet of great hail, fire, blood & 1/3 resources destruction.

    Not sure. Interesting topic to ponder on.

      Hello Jeannie,

      We do not know for sure, which event will happen first. The scriptures do not provide us with that information. We know that the two prophecies looming on the horizon are the 6th Trumpet war and the Peace Agreement. We just don’t know which one happens first.

    • Doug Norvell

      Hello Dave,

      We believe that the 4th Trumpet is the speeding up of time. Jesus said: Matthew 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.
      We know that this cannot be the number of days, because we are told there are 1260 days. However, if the length of the day was shortened, it would make time shorter.
      This is what we believe Revelation 8:12 And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

      Pastor Baxter has also said he believes this happened at the fall of the Berlin wall, after this event the New World Order was established and the prophetic events began to happen faster and faster.

    Trump and vp pence sounds like trumpet to me, trumpence, doesn’t matter we know the time is at hand, I love Trump but it’s not hard to make enemies in this world, and the alliance of Russia, Iran, Syria, etc have already formed.

  63. 2nd Thessalonians chp2:7 / He who restrains must be taken out of the way, before the man of perdition can be revealed / The Holy Spirit must be removed, so we will not see the Anti christ, as is intimated on the 6th trumpet/ it makes sense, Holy Spirit is GOD, He is restraining at the moment living in all believers, before satan has free reign

    • Doug Norvell

      Hello Erica,
      The scripture does not say the Holy Spirit must be removed. This is a popular teaching, but it has no scripture to back it up. One question we must ask, if the Holy Spirit is taken out how do the Two Witnesses work? They will be mortal men, because they will die and lay in the street for 3 1/2 days before the return of Jesus to establish His Kingdom on Earth. This is also when the rapture will take place, at the second coming of Jesus Christ.

        • Doug Norvell

          Hello Dave,

          To understand who the “he” is you have to understand verse 6. It plainly tells us that the factor holding the Antichrist back is time. This makes perfect sense because of the prophecy of Daniel 9:27. We learn here that in the middle of the final 7 years the abomination of desolation will take place. This is when the Antichrist reveals himself, so God has foretold the specific timing of revealing of the Antichrist. God’s word is forever settle so there is no way that the Antichrist can be revealed at any other time. So God’s timing is the factor. So the “he” in 2 Thessalonians 2:7 is referring to God or his timing. Many jump to the conclusion that the phrase “taken out of the way” refers to being completely removed from the scene. However if I am blocking traffic with a cone in the middle of the road, I can move that cone to the side of the road and traffic would begin to flow yet the cone would still be on the road. So God has determined the time that the Antichrist will be revealed and until that time is met the Antichrist cannot be revealed.
