Message outline

Title: Tribulation (Part 3) -The Trumpets Begin!

Series: Revelation

Text: Revelation 8

Main Idea: God’s Kingdom is Coming; His Will is Being Done


  1. The Two Becoming One (Revelation 8:1-5)
  • The Prayers of the Saints join with the Will of God through the intercession of God’s Spirit.
    • See Romans 8:18-39
  1. The Final Seal is Broken (Revelation 8:6-12)
  • Seven Trumpets given to Seven Angles (8:2)
    • Four Instruments are Blown bringing indirect judgment upon humanity
      • First Trumpet (8:7)
      • Second Trumpet (8:8-9)
      • Third Trumpet (8:10-11)
        • Wormwood
          • See Deuteronomy 29:16-20
        • Fourth Trumpet (8:12)

III. The Worst is yet to Come (Revelation 8:13)

  • The Cry of an Eagle to those with John (8:13)
    • See Revelation 7:17
    • See Psalm 23

Going deeper questions (SMall Group)

  • What stood out to you about this message and why?
  • We understand the Spirit makes intercession on our behalf, but how can we be praying more in God’s Will? What does praying in God’s Will mean? How is your prayer life?
  • How can people see these trumpet judgments and attribute them to natural causes? How does this affect our witness today when God answers prayer or does the miraculous such as healing- are we quiet out of fear someone may explain it away?

Knowing the worse had yet to come, how do we find ourselves feeling when we see others doing life without God or believers going down a bad path? Do we weep over and labor share Truth with them?
