The Seventh Trumpet
Scripture reading for December 13th: Revelation 11, Psalm 125-26, Proverbs 2
Key Scriptures: Revelation 11:15-18 “Then the seventh angel blew his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever.” And the twenty-four elders who sit on their thrones before God fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying, “We give thanks to You, Lord God Almighty, Who is and Who was, for You have taken Your great power and begun to reign. The nations raged, but Your wrath came, and the time for the dead to be judged, and for rewarding Your servants, the prophets and saints, and those who fear Your Name, both small and great, and for destroying the destroyers of the earth.””
The drama in heaven was coming to a glorious conclusion. The seventh angel blew the seventh and last trumpet causing the announcement of the completed conquest of the kingdom of the world by the kingdom of the Lord Jesus. The Lord took the throne and would reign eternally! The elders worshiped God and thanked Him for His glorious rule, righteous judgments and rich reward!
Faith Confession: I wait expectantly for this final trumpet and the completion of salvation for the saints and prophets as well as the judgment of the wicked. Our God reigns forever and ever!
Psalm 125:1-2 “Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved, but abides forever. As the mountains surround Jerusalem, so the Lord surrounds His people, from this time forth and forevermore.”
