Seven trumpets!

Scripture reading for December 9th:  Revelation 8

Key Scriptures for over-comers:  Revelation 8:1, 6-7  “When he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.   . . Then the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to sound them.  The first angel sounded his trumpet, and there came hail and fire mixed with blood, and it was hurled down upon the earth.  A third of the earth was burned up, a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up.”  

John had now observed the opening of all seven seals on the scroll from heaven’s throne.  After the last seal was opened, silence filled heaven for a half-hour period.  It was a pregnant pause before the sounding of the seven trumpets by seven more angels.  This silence was the result of the finality and terror that would come with the trumpet judgments that were answers to the prayers of the faithful saints that had risen to God’s throne!  (Revelation 8:3-5)

Observations for over-comers:  Prayer is powerful and effective and rises to God’s throne.  God answers prayers with releases of spiritual armies to fulfill His plan and purposes on earth!  “. .while I was still in prayer, Gabriel, the man I had seen in the earlier vision, came to me in swift flight about the time of the evening sacrifice.  He instructed me and said to me, “Daniel, I have com to give you insight and understanding.  As soon as you began to pray, an answer was given, . .” (Daniel 9:21-23)
