Today we're continuing our examination of the events of the "days of the trumpet call sounded by the seventh angel" (Rev. 10:7). Remember the emphasis on "days"(plural), rather than "day" (singular). That's because the sounding of the seventh trumpet contains the events of the seven bowls. In other words, it would seem that as the last angel sounds this trumpet a series of rapid, catastrophic events quickly unfold.
Then we noted the repetition of this idea of the sounding of a trumpet just as Jesus Christ comes again. It is worthwhile to take note of the events that are linked together with the sounding of this trumpet in these passages. It is at the sounding of the trumpet that the dead in Christ are raised (1 Corinthians 15:52). It is at the sounding of the trumpet that Jesus Christ comes again (1 Thessalonians 4:16). And, finally, it is at the sounding of this trumpet that the living believers are gathered or caught up to be with the Lord at His coming (Matthew 24:31, 1 Thessalonians 4:17).
As I see it, those events are set forth very clearly, in fact, unmistakably as the key events of the "days of the trumpet call to be sounded by the seventh angel" (Revelation 10:7).
