IN CHAPTER EIGHT OF THE BOOK OF REVELATION, THE SEVEN ANGELS WHO STAND BEFORE GOD WERE GIVEN SEVEN TRUMPETS AND EACH ONE WERE ASKED TO SOUND HIS TRUMPET. EVERY ANGEL THAT SOUNDED HIS TRUMPET, A CORRESPONDING CATASTROPHIC EVENT HAPPENED ON THE EARTH. (Rev 8:8) “The second angel sounded his trumpet, and something like a huge mountain, all ablaze, was thrown into the sea. A third of the sea turned into blood, a third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.”
IN SPITE OF THE DIFFERENT PLAGUES THE PEOPLE OF THE EARTH SUFFERED, THE REST OF MANKIND THAT WERE NOT KILLED BY THESE PLAGUES STILL DID NOT REPENT OF THE WORK OF THEIR HANDS.
(Rev 9:20-21) “The rest of mankind that were not killed by these plagues still did not repent of the work of their hands; they did not stop worshiping demons, and idols of gold, silver, bronze, stone and wood—idols that cannot see or hear or walk. Nor did they repent of their murders, their magic arts, their sexual immorality or their thefts.”
HOWEVER, BEFORE THAT EVENTS HAPPEN, THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST, THOSE WHO BELIEVE IN HIS NAME, THEY WILL BE TAKEN OUT OF THIS WORLD AND SO THEY WILL BE WITH HIM FOREVER AND EVER.
(1Thes 4:16-18) “For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. Therefore encourage each other with these words.”
THE WORD OF GOD MADE IT SO CLEAR THAT THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST ARE NOT DESTINED FOR GOD’S WRATH!
(1Th 5:9-10) “For God did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ, who died for us, that whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with Him.”
BUT WHOEVER DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE NAME OF GOD’S ONE AND ONLY SON, STANDS CONDEMNED ALREADY.
(John 3:18) “Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son.”
