Jesus's return alert: This is what to expect when the 7th angel blows his trumpet


According to the Holy Bible, expect the 7th Angel to blow his trumpet or "shofar" to signal the approaching coronation of Jesus Christ as the reigning monarch in the everlasting Kingdom of God: the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Lion of The Tribe of Judah and the Root of David (Rev. Rev.5; 11:15-18).


In ancient Israel, trumpets aka shofars were sometimes made of silver and sometimes hollowed-out ram's horns. The latter type of horn is called a shofar and was used historically to signals several events that concatenate end times prophesies found in the Holy Bible.


In this post we'll discuss some of those events. but first we'll cover the coronation a bit more in depth.


THE CORONATION OF JESUS CHRIST

IN THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN


Similar to how trumpets were blown when Israel's kings like Solomon were crowned, the 7th angel will blow His trumpet when Jesus is ready for His coronation in the Kingdom of God.


"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 the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshiped God.


Saying, We give thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and has reigned (Rev. 11: 15-17-King James Version).


THE RESURRECTION OF THE DEAD CHRISTIANS

UPON THE LORD'S RETURN


When Jesus returns, we can also expect that the dead believers will be raised and rewarded with new bodies fit for the everlasting life promised by Jesus Christ.


"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 Cor. 15:52).


A SIGNAL TO COME WORSHIP THE

LORD AT HIS THRONE


One scripture in particular reveals that for the Hebrew Israelite Jewish people in the Bible, a higher purpose for blowing the shofar is for a signal:


"To come worship the Lord in Jerusalem's Holy Mount Zion" (Isaiah 27:13).


And the following verse is what the prophet Joel revealed:


"Blow a trumpet in Zion,

And sound an alarm on My holy mountain!

Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble,

For the day of the Lord is coming;

Surely it is near" (Joel 2:1).


That verse is referring to the much-anticipated "day of the Lord" when The Almighty returns to destroy His enemies.


A CALL TO SIGNAL JESUS'S RETURN,

TO SIGNAL THE BEGINNINGS OF A WAR, AND TO

CELEBRATE HIS IMMINENT VICTORY


The seventh angel will also blow his trumpet to signal Jesus's expected imminent victory at the Battle of Armageddon: Like Saul blew his horn when Israel went to war with the Philistines.


"Jonathan smote the garrison of the Philistines that was in Geba, and the Philistines heard of it. Then Saul blew the trumpet throughout the land, saying, “Let the Hebrews hear” (1 Sam. 13:3).


Unlike Saul who was replaced by king David because Saul disobeyed the Lord, Jesus kept God's commandments and will reign forever.


SIGNALING THE EMANCIPATION OF THOSE

ENTRAPPED IN BONDAGE


A ram's horn was blown in ancient Israel both on the Day of Atonement and to celebrate a Jubilee year (Lev. 25:8-12). Jubilees set Israel's captives, servants and workmen free from bondage: like Jesus set His people free from sin and the devil's bondage.


As A REMINDER OF WHO GOD IS


"Also in the day of your gladness and in your appointed feasts, and on the first days of your months, you shall blow the trumpets over your burnt offerings, and over the sacrifices of your peace offerings; and they shall be as a reminder of you before your God. I am the Lord your God.” (Num. 10:10).



TO GATHER THE LORD'S ELECT


Trumpets were also blown to summon God's chosen people - his elect Israelite congregation encamped in the wilderness beyond Egypt - to gather and again start marching towards the promised land.


Compare this trumpet-blowing instance with the expected trumpet-blowing occasion that immediately follows the "Great Tribulation":


"Immediately after the tribulation of those days: ‘The sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken."


"At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on 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).


So, there we again see a trumpet being used to announce the gathering of God's people.


Now, the last trumpet will be more special than any of the other trumpets of God. The last trump signals the return of Jesus Christ to establish the kingdom of Heaven. If you have never heard what the unforgettable ram's horn or "shofar" sounds like, especially from echoing hills or bellowing chambers, then I encourage you to do so.


The sound is inspired by Almighty God, and is one of the most distinct sounds in the universe.
