The Sixth Trumpet is the Second Woe. Revelation 9:12-11:14
The Third Woe commences with the Seventh Trumpet. This final woe is largely, though not totally,
composed of the Seven Bowls of the wrath of Elohim. (See Revelation 10:7, 11:15-19 and note more
references to the Seven Bowls of wrath are seen below.)
4. When the Seventh Trumpet sounds, the Body of Believers is caught up (in fulfillment of Sha'ul's
prophecy, "at the Last Trumpet." 1Corinthians 15:52, 1Thessalonians 4:16-18) to appear before the Judgment
Seat of the Messiah (2Corinthians 5:10) and to partake in the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. John 14:1-3,
Revelation 14:1-5, 15:2-4 All evidence shows the Messiah will marry His Bride at this time and that He will
spend a year with her (Deuteronomy 24:5) before He goes to war! Revelation 19:11-21
Judgment begins first with the believers (Matthew 22:11-14, Luke 19:15-27). Afterwards, the lawless
(anti-Torah) inhabitants of the earth will bear the fierceness of His wrath. Ezekiel 9:6, 1Peter 4:17, Revelation
The Seven Bowls comprise the "year of vengeance." Isaiah 34:8, 61:2, 63:4 During the year-long marriage
celebration of the Messiah and His Bride, the fierce wrath of Elohim will be poured out upon the earth's
inhabitants via the Seven Bowls of wrath. Revelation 11:18-19 < > 15:5-8, 16:1-21
After the Seventh Bowl of wrath is poured out, the heavens will open and the Messiah will go forth to make
war with the heathen kingdoms that have not submitted to His Reign. Revelation 19:11

A Closing Note: While the overlap of events in the Revelation make its chronology difficult to understand,
these clear signposts will help followers of the Messiah to accurately pinpoint much of what is to transpire.
