The 7 Trumpets of Revelation Study Series P2 Trumpet 2

Even before Trumpet 1 hits Earth, the world is already 'on the edge' regarding food security. Today, 1 billion people suffer from hunger. It is not hard to imagine the acute global food shortages that will face us after Trumpet 1 hits the planet.

When Trumpet 2 hits Earth, the global food shortages will become much worse:

“And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.” (Revelation 8:8-9)

Trumpet 2 describes a blazing mountain (or meteor) falling into the sea which will cause unimaginable ecological devastation.

The results will be:

1/3 of earth’s oceans will be turned into blood.
1/3 of all ocean creatures will die.
1/3 of all ships will be destroyed.

The death of 1/3 of the sea creatures will be caused by the highly toxic nature of the blazing mass and/or the shear underwater impact. Trumpet 2 will cause the mother of all tsunamis which will destroy one third of all ships, i.e. about 18,000 merchant ships will disappear into the depth of the seas in one day. This will only exacerbate the world famine, and will accelerate the spread of diseases.

Scientists say that meteors have collided with Earth many times in our planet’s history and it continues to happen from time to time. Today, scientists fear that a massive rock surrounded by combustible gases will hurtle towards Earth. As it enters the atmosphere, the gases will ignite to make it a giant, flaming ball. NASA is developing plans to nuke meteor threats with unmanned “nuclear interceptor” vessels before they are able to impact Earth. However, no human intervention will ever succeed in halting the blazing meteor of Trumpet 2.

On January 7, 2002, there was an astronomically close-call from an asteroid 300 meters in diameter [984.25 ft], wandering too close to Earth. The asteroid, dubbed YB5, was large enough to knock out a nation the size of France. To grasp the extent of damage that will ensue from the impacts of asteroids of different sizes, scientists at a 1981 conference on mass extinctions provided the following scenarios:

A collision with a 200 meter diameter [656.17 ft] asteroid would produce a 1,000-megaton explosion and between 200,000 and 100 million deaths.

A collision with a 400 meter diameter [1/4 mile] asteroid would produce a 10,000-megaton blast and between two million and one billion deaths. And that is from an asteroid less than half a kilometer across.

A collision with a 10 kilometer diameter [6.21 miles] asteroid striking the ocean would produce a wave up to 5 kilometers [3.11 miles] high from the point of impact. 1,500 kilometers [932.06 miles] away the tsunami would still be 500 meters high [about 1/3 mile].

If such an asteroid were to hit the Gulf of Mexico, the waves would cause flooding in Kansas City! Such waves would wreak devastating havoc on international shipping and many coastal cities. (Source: Gerrit L. Verschuur, “The End of Civilization?” Astronomy 19, no. 9 (September 1991): 50-54.)

What is the purpose of these Trumpets?

Our loving heavenly Father, Yahuwah, has designed that the Trumpets serve as His last attempt to get the attention of each person on earth before He closes human probation forever. Before our Saviour, Yahushua, comes again, the “gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world.” (Matthew 24:14) Sadly, though, most people today are too busy to take time to listen to Yahuwah's last call of mercy.

There are calamities happening all around us serving as unmistakable signs of the imminent close of probation, yet most people dismiss them as freaks of nature. People's minds, being steeped in worldliness and human traditions, prevent them today from hearing and accepting the gospel. But very soon, Yahuwah will dramatically interrupt the lives of people on earth and challenge their way of thinking by way of the Trumpets.

Faced with the reality of death posed by these Trumpet, each living person will have to make a decision of whether to obey Yahuwah or Satan. Only after the last person has made their final decision will probation forever be closed, and the destiny of each living person will have been sealed. The Saviour will then shortly come the second time to raise the righteous dead and they, with the living righteous, will be taken up to heaven.
