"Seventh Trumpet: The Kingdom Proclaimed
Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!” And the twenty-four elders who sat before God on their thrones fell on their faces and worshiped God, saying:
“We give You thanks, O Lord God Almighty,
The One who is and who was and who is to come,
Because You have taken Your great power and reigned.
The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come,
And the time of the dead, that they should be judged,
And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints,
And those who fear Your name, small and great,
And should destroy those who destroy the earth.”
Then the temple of God was opened in heaven, and the ark of His covenant was seen in His temple. And there were lightnings, noises, thunderings, an earthquake, and great hail."

A. Joy in Heaven
B. Judgement on Earth
- God temporarily allows Satan to reign on Earth.
- Falling on your face is the pre-eminent form of Worship in the Bible.
- Satan always 'rules' with murderous intention.
- The preeminent God reigns on their puny 'gods' and it makes them mad.
- First word out of the mouths of the 24 elders is thanks.
- Specifically mentions the arc of the covenant.
- Our sin has to be judged; the only question is whether we allow Jesus to bear it or if we choose to bear it ourselves.
- There are people reading this right now who will allow themselves to go to hell because they refuse to swallow their pride and humble themselves before God.
- Author's Note: If you think this statement *might* apply to you, this statement applies to YOU.
- There's only one way to get to Heaven and that's through Jesus!!!
- Jesus is the culmination of all those Jewish prophesies in the Old Testament.
- "I'm vocal, but I'm friendly."
