With the first four trumpets, in each case, every trumpet blown, including the falling of wormwood/Satan God allows the destruction they bring. Why? Because He is King and He is a good King… His trumpets are not final judgment but they are Mercy in the form of a temporal judgment to lead men to repentance. Like the watchman and his trumpet in
, they warn the people of impending danger. But they are also a CALL to worship. Especially for us who have escaped the wrath to come and hear with each of their loud sounds the beaconing of the New Day!
