The Trumpets – A Call to Repentence
Remember, Revelation is a letter written to encourage faithfulness and worship and the apocalyptic style of literature helps meet this goal. We are shocked awake like being submerged in cold water. However, these sections of scripture should also turn us back to the foundational story of God, and nowhere is that story so powerfully told than in the Exodus narrative. In fact, the entire system of trumpets finds its pattern in the plagues of Exodus where God brought upon Egypt His awesome power, destroying their false gods and idols. Despite God’s people being born into slavery, it is through tearing away their old world that they are birthed as a free people into a new one.
