The last trumpet is blown AFTER THE TRIBULATION, not before.
Why do so many people twist and pervert the words of Jesus in Matthew 24 when He already told us when we shall be gathered to meet Him in the air, which we know as “The Rapture”?
God told us “AT THE LAST TRUMP”
When did He say that trumpet is blown?
Matthew 24: 29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give its light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: 30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
31 #And He shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
What is so difficult to understand?
Then many years after He spoke that prophecy, the Apostle Paul simply repeated the words of Jesus to encourage the Thessalonian church.
1 Thessalonians 4:15 For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not precede them who are asleep.
16 For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first:
17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord.
Immediately after the tribulation of those days.
STOP BELIEVING THE LIES
Again confirmed in 1 Corinthians 15:51 Behold, I show you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, #at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
There is only 1 “last TRUMP” blown at the end of the tribulation.
Also confirmed by the Holy Spirit in the following prophecy given through J Leland Earls.
At the close of the tribulation, just before the seven vials of wrath are poured out on the earth, the sounding of the seventh trumpet shall vibrate to the pitch of those who are to be resurrected to glorified life, and the ‘dead in Christ’ shall be raised (I Thess. 4:16′). Then shall the living saints also respond to the trumpet’s sounding and be translated to meet the Lord in the air (I Thess. 4:17). Immediately following, the seven vials of wrath are poured out, constituting the fulfillment of the third woe.
Now there is a difference, says the Lord, between the end-time judgments which take place in the over-all end-time period under the six trumpets, and the final wrath which is poured out in fury and indignation by the seven vials.
The trumpet judgments are designed to bring warning, and incline the hearts of many to righteousness; they are remedial in nature. Coupled with a great outpouring of my Spirit, they shall work to move great numbers to repentance and cause them to be born into the Kingdom. But the final vials of wrath are designed to sweep clean the earth of all final rebellion and wickedness.
When they begin to fall it will be too late for repentance. All who have not cried out to their God in the tribulation period will be destroyed from the earth in the judgments of the seven vials. Speaking of that time the inspired writer exclaims, ‘and the nations were angry, and THY WRATH IS COME.’ (11:18).
With reference to the seven angels who have these seven last plagues, it is said, ‘for in them is filled up the wrath of God.’ (15:1) and they are instructed to go and ‘pour out the vials of the wrath of God on the earth.’ (16:1).
It has already been pointed out that the seven vials of wrath come only after the saints have been translated and ‘caught up’ to be with the Lord. This is pictured in the vision which John saw of those who were standing on a ‘sea of glass’ and singing the ‘song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb.’ (15:2-3).
The ‘song of Moses’ was sung by the Israelites after they have been completely delivered OUT OFEgyptand from the power of Pharaoh. Egypt is a type of this world. Even so shall I deliver a great host in that day by causing them to be taken out of the world and translated from that which is earthly to that which is heavenly.
They shall then be taken into the highest heaven and introduced to the Father in the temple of heaven. At the same time the seven angels will be pouring out their vials of wrath upon the earth. This is why the temple is seen as being opened in heaven as these things are ready to be fulfilled (11:19, 15:5).
The seven angels with the seven vials are seen coming out of the temple, (15:6) and a voice out of the temple then charges them to begin pouring out their vials of wrath on the earth (16:1). The temple which is opened to emit the final wrath of God is also open to welcome the redeemed of God.
But they are allowed to enter only after the seven plagues have seen their initial fulfillment on the earth. (15:8). Thus there will be two suppers taking place at the same time: the marriage supper of the Lamb in the temple in heaven (19:7-9), and the great supper of human flesh on the earth. (19:17-18).
The entrance of the redeemed saints into the temple in heaven will be the final fulfillment of the GREAT DAY OF ATONEMENT, as those who have been ‘hid with Christ in God’ (Col. 2:3) shall enter into their full liberty in Christ, being made ready to rule and reign with Him.
At the same time the great day of atonement will be fulfilled on earth by the greatest blood bath in human history as the blood of all those who have been martyred for truth’s sake is avenged by wrath poured out. (16:6).
