Trumpets were used in Ancient Israel as a way to call the assembly of the congregation, to sound the advance, at the beginning of months, were blown over the sacrifices and used in a variety of scenarios to call attention to something. It also served as a call to war, and a reminder to God of His people. In the book of Joel, as the parallels to the Trumpets of Revelation are described, we see a description of the final chapters in God’s plan for mankind. Trumpet by Trumpet, these things are ushered in and with each Trumpet, a reminder is provided to God of His remnant. Culminating with the coming of Jesus Christ at the seventh Trumpet, it is an incredible time of rejoicing. Looking to this coming joyful time can help to encourage us in the face of many trials.
