Trumpet 7 (3rd Woe)
The Final 7 Plagues...
During the first six Trumpets, Yahuwah provides everyone living with a final opportunity to accept salvation before human probation is eternally closed. The first six Trumpets (unlike the seven last plagues) are mixed with mercy; we know this because only one-third of the targets are afflicted.
“But the rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent . . .” (Revelation 9:20-21)
In an effort to awaken the world, what else could Heaven do, give, or offer that has not already been done in the eternal sacrifice of Yahuwah’s only begotten Son, Yahushua?
“Even so, Yahuwah Almighty, true and righteous are thy judgments.” (Revelation 16:7)
By persistent rebellion and refusal to heed the warnings of the first six Trumpets, humanity will in effect be challenging Yahuwah to close probation.
“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” (Revelation 22:11)
The unrepentant will be ripe to taste the undiluted seven last plagues - the 3rd and final Woe.
“The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly.” (Revelation 11:14)
“And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Master, and of His Anointed; and He shall reign forever and ever.” (Revelation 11:15)
When Trumpet 7 sounds, the kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of Yahushua, indicating that the controversy between Satan and Yahuwah is over and Yahushua will now come to claim His own. Yet, by comparing Trumpets, we see that each succeeding Trumpet is worse than the one before it, making Trumpet 7 the severest in magnitude. Since Trumpet 7 is the worst in magnitude and comes just before the Second Coming; and the Seven Last Plagues are the worst in magnitude and come just before the Second Coming, we conclude that Trumpet 7 must be the Seven Last Plagues.
The following is what we have learned about the seven last plagues from the Bible:
They will be poured out after probation closes; this is why they are without mercy. “. . . for in them is filled up the wrath of Yahuwah.” (Revelation 15:1) “. . . the wrath of Yahuwah, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation.” (Revelation 14:10)
They will start and finish quickly. From Daniel and Revelation we learn that from the end of Trumpets 5 till the blasting of Trumpet 7 there will be a period of about 3 ½ years. However, the duration of the seven last plagues will be only thirty days (Daniel 12:11), in line with the divine description of pouring them out of vials (Revelation 15:7). For more information: Interpretation of Daniel 11:31-45; 12:1-13
They will not be universal, or else all the remaining wicked would be dead before the Second Coming. However, the first six Trumpets will pale in comparison to the severity of these plagues.
The living righteous (144,000 in number) will also experience the plagues. “They shall hunger no more, neither thirst anymore; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.” (Revelation 7:16) However, while the wicked are dying from hunger and pestilence, angels will shield the 144,000 and supply their needs. To them that “walketh righteously” is the promise, “Bread shall be given him; his waters shall be sure.” (Isaiah 33:15-16)
The watching universe will testify to the justice of Yahuwah in pouring out the seven last plagues.
“Even so, Sovereign Yahuwah Almighty, true and righteous are Your judgments.” (Revelation 16:7)
The unfallen universe will witness that even while the seven last plagues are being poured out on the wicked, their hearts are more hardened than ever.
“And men were scorched with great heat, and they blasphemed the name of Yahuwah who has power over these plagues; and they did not repent and give Him glory.” (Revelation 16:9)
Many of the righteous living (144,000) will be in prison cells or hiding in solitary retreats, all pleading for divine protection in the face of a universal death decree against them. The wicked are convinced by the Beast and the false shepherds that the refusal of the righteous to honor Rome's false day of worship has caused the Trumpets and the plagues. It will be urged by Rome and her allies that the only way to regain Heaven's favor is by getting rid of the 144,000 in one fatal swoop.
The trial that will be endured by the 144,000 in this time of affliction and distress has been described as “the time of Jacob's trouble.” (Jeremiah 30:5-7) No description can adequately illustrate the magnitude of what the 144,000 will endure alone without the intercession of Yahushua in the Heavenly sanctuary. It will be of the same nature but not magnitude that Yahushua experienced on the cross when His Father’s face was hid from Him.
The righteous will be denied the right of buying and selling prior to the pouring out of the 7 last plagues.
“And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.” (Revelation 13:17)
Their refusal to honor Rome's false day of worship, and their refusal to dishonor Yahuwah's calendar and His holy days will earn them the enmity of the world, which will impose on them the 'no buy and no sell' order. This is the price that the righteous will pay for not accepting the “mark of the beast.” However, Yahuwah will take revenge for this action taken against His people, and will bring all global trade to a standstill during the 7 last plagues:
“And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore. . .” (Revelation 18:11)
During the thirty days of plagues, sinners will wake up gradually to the crude reality that the righteous are being cared for supernaturally. It will suddenly dawn on them that they have indeed been tricked and deceived by Rome and her allies, who promised them restoration of prosperity and divine favor if the world would get rid of those who are refusing to honor Rome's false calendar and false day of worship. The hope of worldly gains and material prosperity for which they sacrificed everything to secure are now seen in its true light and worth.
The despair and anguish which will engulf the wicked at that time has been vividly described:
“The sword is outside, and the pestilence and famine within. Whoever is in the field will die by the sword; and whoever is in the city, famine and pestilence will devour him. 'Those who survive will escape and be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, each for his iniquity. Every hand will be feeble, and every knee will be as weak as water. They will also be girded with sackcloth; horror will cover them; shame will be on every face, baldness on all their heads. ‘They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be like refuse; their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of Yahuwah; they will not satisfy their souls, nor fill their stomachs, because it became their stumbling block of iniquity.” (Ezekiel 7:15-19)
The 3 1/2 day deadline, which the wicked will give the 144,000 to submit and give up allegiance to Yahuwah's true seventh-day Sabbath, will take place towards the end of 30 day period ordained for the pouring out of the 7 last plagues. By the 30th day, the first 6 plagues will have been poured out on the world, and the wicked are now ready to enforce the universal death decree on the 144,000. At the very moment in which the wicked are eagerly awaiting to pounce on the 144,000, the voice of Yahuwah, like the sound of many waters, will descend like thunder on the wicked saying:
“It is done.” (Revelation 16:17)
Yahuwah's voice will not only shake the heavens and the earth, but will also trigger the mighty earthquake of the 7th plague, such “a mighty and great earthquake as had not occurred since men were on the earth” (Revelation 16:18). This earthquake will level ALL man-made structures in all cities of the world.
After the 7th last plague - that mighty earthquake which will be triggered by Yahuwah's voice delivering the 144,000 saints from the hands of the wicked - a period of 45 days will commence which will end with the Second Coming of Yahushua. During this final period of Earth's history, the saints will be glorified when Yahuwah will compel the wicked to . . .
“come and worship before your feet, and to know that I have loved you.” (Revelation 3:9)
The world leaders (represented by the 10 kings) who were deceived into surrendering “their power and authority” (Revelation 17:13) to the beast power, will now direct their anger and power at the . . .
“beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. For Yahuwah has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of Yahuwah are fulfilled.” (Revelation 17:16-17)
We believe that at any moment Trumpet 1 will blast and will be followed by the next four Trumpets in rapid succession - because we are now living under the last pope, Revelation Seventeen's 8th "king."
The sole purpose of the Trumpets is to grant humanity a final wake-up call before Yahuwah withdraws His Spirit completely from Earth and seals the destiny of every living soul. The world is on the verge of witnessing unprecedented cataclysmic events, through which Yahuwah will arrest the attention of all people.
“For the great day of His wrath is come: and who shall be able to stand?” (Revelation 6:17)
Today, while our great High Priest is making atonement for us, it is our opportunity to wash our robes and make them white in the blood of the Lamb that we may separate from sin through faith in the atoning blood of Yahushua. The precious Saviour invites you to join Him, to unite your weakness to His strength, your ignorance to His wisdom, your unworthiness to His merits. Glorious will be the deliverance of those who have patiently waited for His coming and whose names are written in the Book of Life.
“For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock.” (Psalms 27:5)
“He will swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Yahuwah will wipe away tears from all faces; The rebuke of His people He will take away from all the earth; For Yahuwah has spoken. And it will be said in that day: ‘Behold, this is our Eloah; We have waited for Him, and He will save us. This is Yahuwah; We have waited for Him; We will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.’” (Isaiah 25:8-9)
“Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book. . . . Blessed are they that do His commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.” (Revelation 22:7, 14)
