100 Days of Preaching the Gospel #89 | with Daniel Whyte III
SCRIPTURE: Revelation 11:14-19 — “The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever. And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned. And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth. And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.”
On yesterday, we continued looking at the seven trumpet judgments which take place after the seven seal judgments during the Tribulation period. The six trumpet judgments that we have covered are as follows:
1. The first trumpet judgment brought about hail, fire, and blood, which destroyed a third of all plant life.
2. The second trumpet judgment brought about a third part of the sea being turned into blood and the death of a third of all sea life.
3. The third trumpet judgment brought about the poisoning of a third of the fresh water supply and the death of many people.
4. The fourth trumpet judgment brought about the diminishing of light from the sun, the moon, and the stars.
5. The fifth trumpet judgment brought about the opening of the abyss and an army of locust-like demons being released to torment (but not kill) those who reject God.
6. The sixth trumpet judgment brought about the releasing of the four fallen angels bound in the River Euphrates and an army 200 million strong who go forth to slaughter a third of earth’s remaining population.
The Bible says three resounding “woes” started the fifth trumpet judgment. Verse 14 of our passage tells us that the “second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.” Let’s look at what this seventh trumpet entails.
1. First of all, the seventh trumpet shows us the praise for the Sovereign King.
2. Secondly, the seventh trumpet shows us the plan for judgment and reward.
3. Thirdly, and finally today, the seventh trumpet shows us the promise of communion.
