The Last Trumpet: The Trumpet of God

Recommended Posts

I think we can all agree that those who are Christ's are made immortal at the last trumpet, which is identified as the trumpet of God.  Where we diverge is in identifying what the trumpet of God is, and when it is that the last one sounds.  If we use scripture to interpret scripture, it should become clear that the trumpet of God is a term used to describe His voice of authority.

We have these two verses in Revelation that describe Jesus' voice as sounding like a trumpet:

  • I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day, and I heard behind me a loud voice like the sound of a trumpet.  Revelation 1:10
  • After these things I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven, and the first voice which I had heard, like the sound of a trumpet speaking with me, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.”  Revelation 4:1

The following verse associates Jesus' voice with resurrection.

  • Do not marvel at this; for an hour is coming, in which all who are in the tombs will hear His voice, and will come forth; those who did the good deeds to a resurrection of life, those who committed the evil deeds to a resurrection of judgment.  John 5:28-29

When these are combined, we get a resurrection that happens at the voice of Jesus which is described as a trumpet.  Where do the prophets talk about the voice or trumpet of God?

  • And the Lord will cause His voice of authority to be heard, and the descending of His arm to be seen in fierce anger, and in the flame of a consuming fire In cloudburst, downpour and hailstones.  Isaiah 30:30
  • In that day the Lord will start His threshing from the flowing stream of the Euphrates to the brook of Egypt, and you will be gathered up one by one, O sons of Israel.  It will come about also in that day that a great trumpet will be blown, and those who were perishing in the land of Assyria and who were scattered in the land of Egypt will come and worship the Lord in the holy mountain at Jerusalem.  Isaiah 27:12-13
  • Then the Lord will appear over them, and His arrow will go forth like lightning; and the Lord God will blow the trumpet, and will march in the storm winds of the south.  Zechariah 9:14

So, when is the last trumpet of God going to take place where His voice causes the resurrection of the righteous?  In addition to the above verses, we also have these explicit statements:

  • This is the will of Him who sent Me, that of all that He has given Me I lose nothing, but raise it up on the last day.  For this is the will of My Father, that everyone who beholds the Son and believes in Him will have eternal life, and I Myself will raise him up on the last day.”  John 6:39-40
  • No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up on the last day.  John 6:44
  • He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day.  John 6:54

Something to think about for those who are inclined to do so . . . the last trumpet, the voice of God, the resurrection, on the last day, according to scripture.

  • But the one who endures to the end, he will be saved.  Matthew 24:13

And, of course, there can't be a last trumpet without a first trumpet.  When the voice of God's authority was first heard as a trumpet, the children of Israel had left Egypt and were gathered at Mt Sinai.

  • So it came about on the third day, when it was morning, that there were thunder and lightning flashes and a thick cloud upon the mountain and a very loud trumpet sound, so that all the people who were in the camp trembled. And Moses brought the people out of the camp to meet God, and they stood at the foot of the mountain.  Exodus 19:16-17

Mt Sinai is where God called the children of Israel to be His possession in the world, a holy nation, a kingdom of priests.

  • Now then, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be My own possession among all the peoples, for all the earth is Mine; and you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words that you shall speak to the sons of Israel.”  Exodus 19:5-6

The common denominator between the first trumpet of God on Mt. Sinai and the last trumpet of God on the last day is that He is calling forth His people to be a holy nation in the earth.  The first was natural.  The second will be spiritual.  There may be other similarities but that is the one that I found striking.
