When it comes to the end times and the Book of Revelation, The number 7 is of great significance. It is based on the 7-day Sabbath cycle from the old testaments. 

The Book of Revelation is the last book of The Bible and talks about the end times and the second coming of Lord Jesus. 

This is also a summary of the book of revelation.

Now, as the first four seals were opening, John saw 4 horsemen of different skin tones. Each one symbolized something. 

The White Horseman symbolized conquests, bowing, and crowns. The red horseman symbolized wars, swords, and killing of one another. The black one was for famines and The pale horsemen symbolized Death by epidemics and hunger.

The Fifth Seal symbolized the cries of the martyrs. And, they were told to wait and rest because more Christians are yet to die. 

The Sixth Seal showed Heavenly signs like, Earthquakes, bloody moon, dark sun, falling stars, moving mountains, and rolling up of sky, due to which people will have to hide during the end times.

With the opening of the seventh seal, there was lightning, earthquakes, and thunders. But, there was silence and prayers.

Now, The Seven Trumpets were prepared.

The Seven Trumpets

The First Four Trumpets were cosmic events and the next three were woes.

The seventh trumpet contains the seven bowls or the last seven plagues of the end times.

the end times- the 7 trumpets

With the first trumpet Hail and Fire were thrown with blood on Earth and it burned one-third of the vegetation.

The second trumpet caused to throw burning mountains and fire were thrown to sea and one-third of the seas turned bloody red. One-third of the creatures died and one-third of the ships were destroyed.

With the third trumpet, Stars fell on rivers and turned one-third of the water bitter and a lot of people died.

The fourth trumpet caused one-third of sun, stars, and moon to struck and one-third of the day to stay dark.

With all these cosmic events happening, leading us to the end times, angels shouted, WOE, WOE, WOE!

And the fifth trumpet contains the first woe, and the attack of demon locust on people who do not repent.

The sixth trumpet, the second woe released four angles that killed men that did not repent yet.

The seventh trumpet contained the third woe and the 7 bowls or the last seven plagues of the end times as in the book of revelation.

Also, with the seventh trumpet, the Kingdom of God is declared and the Judgement is called.

The Last Seven Plagues (Bowls)

the end times- the last seven plagues

Now, after the seven plagues of the end times, as the evil is defeated among all nations, and The kingdom of God is established with all those who remained faithful.

Also, read; Bible verses about plagues in the end times. (Most of them are from the book of revelations.)

The Establishment of The Kingdom of God.

Now, after the seven plagues of the end times, as the evil is defeated among all nations, and The kingdom of God is established with all those who remained faithful.

Satan will be bound and there will be Kingdom of God who is Good.

Now, Jesus who shed his own blood for his enemies is now proclaiming justice.

He will hold accountable those who refuse to repent of the ways that they participate in the ruin of God’s world which is good. And, in the destructive hellfire that they’ve unleashed in God’s world justly becomes their own God-appointed destiny. 

After this, John sees a vision of Jesus’ followers who are murdered by Babylon in the end times. They are brought back to life and that they reign with the Messiah for 1,000 years. 

Then, the dragon who inspired rebellion against God goes around the nations of the world to rebel against God’s kingdom. But before God’s throne of justice, all of them face the results of eternal defeat.

And so the forces of spiritual evil and everyone who doesn’t want to participate in God’s kingdom are destroyed. They are given what they want: to exist by themselves and for themselves. And, the dragon and Babylon and everyone who chooses them are eternally quarantined, never again able to corrupt God’s new creation.

So, the most important point is clear: When Jesus returns as king he will affect evil forever and he will save those who have been faithful to him.
