The 6th Trumpet

What is the 6th trumpet about? What’s going on when the 6th trumpet sounded? We can say the great tribulation has come, Joel 2:1,2,31 “for the day of YHWH is coming; it is near,a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness! 31 The sun shall be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood, before the great and awesome day of YHWH comes.”


Let’s see the Revelation chapter 9-11 what happens on the 6th trumpet…


Somethings shall be happened when the 6th trumpet sounded, then this “second woe” will pass. What things are going on? They are “The number of mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand“, “to kill a third of mankind“, a “mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head“, “measure the temple of God and the altar and those who worship there“, “two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days“, will be killed by the beast, and “And they went up to heaven in a cloud“.


Let’s see the mounted troops first, they will kill a third of mankind.


The mounted troops


Revelation 9:13-15 “Then the sixth angel blew his trumpet, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar before God, 14 saying to the sixth angel who had the trumpet, “Release the four angels who are bound at the great river Euphrates.” 15 So the four angels, who had been prepared for the hour, the day, the month, and the year, were released to kill a third of mankind. 


If we read Revelation 7:1-4, we will know that the four angels are “holding back the four winds of the earth”, why holding back? They were told not to harm the earth and the sea and the trees, for what? Because they have to wait until the servants of God complete sealing on their foreheads, and the number of the sealed is 144,000.


Then what does it mean of “Release the four angels”? When the four angels released at Revelation 9:14, that means the last one of saints has sealed, and the whole sealing work of 144000 saints is also done. Then the four angels no need to wait any more and they will be released, that means “the great tribulation” will come which has prepared for the hour, the day, the month and the year. The earth the sea and the trees will be harmed, and a third of mankind will be killed.


We are now in the 5th trumpet period but it will end soon, after that the sixth trumpet will be sounded. 2 Corinthians 6:2 “Behold, now is the favorable time; behold, now is the day of salvation”. Apostle Paul said “now is the favorable time”. Yes, now is the special grace time for people be the God’s son(144000), but it will end soon. When the 6th trumpet sounded, the sealing work of saints will finish, the favorable time to be God’s son will end, and the gate of entering heavenly kingdom will be closed too. But there will be a great multitude who will “come out of the great tribulation”, they will be saved. Please read “144000 and a great multitude“.


Twice ten thousand times ten thousand Mounted Troops


What is the mounted troops? What do they symbolic? What does it mean? Let’s see.


Revelation 9:16-19


16 The number of mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand; I heard their number. 


17 And this is how I saw the horses in my vision and those who rode them: they wore breastplates the color of fire and of sapphire and of sulfur, and the heads of the horses were like lions’ heads, and fire and smoke and sulfur came out of their mouths.


18 By these three plagues a third of mankind was killed, by the fire and smoke and sulfur coming out of their mouths.


19 For the power of the horses is in their mouths and in their tails, for their tails are like serpents with heads, and by means of them they wound.


What do the mounted troops look like? What is that? What does it symbolic?


fire and of sapphire and of sulfur


Heads of the horses like lions’ head


And the heads of the horses were like lions’ heads, for the power of the horses is in their mouths, and fire and smoke and sulfur came out of their mouths.

sixth trumpet of Revelation


Tails like serpent with head


For the power of the horses is in their tails, for their tails are like serpents with heads, and by means of them they wound.

Lion's tail like serpent with head


So what do the mounted troops mean? Can you see that? The troops means or symbolic the volcanic eruption. The troops’ mouth like Lion’s mouth means the crater which come out the fire and smoke and sulfur. The tail like serpent with head means the lava magma. Why can they kill a third of mankind? Because “The number of mounted troops was twice ten thousand times ten thousand; I heard their number”. That means volcanic eruption will occur all over the world, maybe that is twice ten thousand times ten thousand, “I heard their number”. It is really the Great Tribulation what Bible says.


What will happen when twice ten thousand times ten thousand mounted troops harmed the earth the trees and the sea? Can you imagine? Let’s see the prophecy of Joel chapter 1 and 2 about the mounted troops, it is the God’s Day, the End Day.


Joel 1:2,3

Hear this, you elders;
    give ear, all inhabitants of the land!
Has such a thing happened in your days,
    or in the days of your fathers?

Tell your children of it,
    and let your children tell their children,
    and their children to another generation.


This is never happened before and won’t happened afterward. What did Jesus say in Matthew 24:21?


21 For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be”. 


The generation that survives the Great Tribulation should tell their children, and their children’s children till all generations afterward. Joel 1:4 about locusts is referring the fifth trumpet of Revelation, but the other verses are referring the mounted troops of sixth trumpet. Let’s see…


Joel 1:6,7


For a nation has come up against my land,
    powerful and beyond number;
its teeth are lions’ teeth,
    and it has the fangs of a lioness.
It has laid waste my vine
    and splintered my fig tree;
it has stripped off their bark and thrown it down;
    their branches are made white.


Luke 23:28-31


But turning to them Jesus said, “Daughters of Jerusalem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. 29 For behold, the days are coming when they will say, ‘Blessed are the barren and the wombs that never bore and the breasts that never nursed!’ 30 Then they will begin to say to the mountains, ‘Fall on us,’ and to the hills, ‘Cover us.’ 31 For if they do these things when the wood is green, what will happen when it is dry?


Joel 1:8-12,15-17

Lament like a virgin wearing sackcloth
    for the bridegroom of her youth.
The grain offering and the drink offering are cut off
    from the house of YHWH.
The priests mourn,
    the ministers of YHWH.
10 The fields are destroyed,
    the ground mourns,
because the grain is destroyed,
    the wine dries up,
    the oil languishes.

11 Be ashamed, O tillers of the soil;
    wail, O vinedressers,
for the wheat and the barley,
    because the harvest of the field has perished.
12 The vine dries up;
    the fig tree languishes.
Pomegranate, palm, and apple,
    all the trees of the field are dried up,
and gladness dries up
    from the children of man.

15 Alas for the day!
For the day of YHWH is near,
    and as destruction from the Almighty it comes.
16 Is not the food cut off
    before our eyes,
joy and gladness
    from the house of our God?

17 The seed shrivels under the clods;
    the storehouses are desolate;
the granaries are torn down
    because the grain has dried up.


Joel 1:18-20
18 How the beasts groan!
    The herds of cattle are perplexed
because there is no pasture for them;
    even the flocks of sheep suffer.

19 To you, O YHWH, I call.
For fire has devoured
    the pastures of the wilderness,
and flame has burned
    all the trees of the field.
20 Even the beasts of the field pant for you
    because the water brooks are dried up,
and fire has devoured
    the pastures of the wilderness.



Joel chapter 2


Joel 2:1,2
Blow a trumpet in Zion;
    sound an alarm on my holy mountain!
Let all the inhabitants of the land tremble,
    for the day of YHWH is coming; it is near,
a day of darkness and gloom,
    a day of clouds and thick darkness!
Like blackness there is spread upon the mountains
    a great and powerful people;
their like has never been before,
    nor will be again after them
    through the years of all generations.


2 Peter 3:10,12


10 But the day of YHWH will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a roar, and the heavenly bodies will be burned up and dissolved, and the earth and the works that are done on it will be exposed.

12 waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be set on fire and dissolved, and the heavenly bodies will melt as they burn!”


Joel 2:3-6
Fire devours before them,
    and behind them a flame burns.
The land is like the garden of Eden before them,
    but behind them a desolate wilderness,
    and nothing escapes them.

Their appearance is like the appearance of horses,
    and like war horses they run.
As with the rumbling of chariots,
    they leap on the tops of the mountains,
like the crackling of a flame of fire
    devouring the stubble,
like a powerful army
    drawn up for battle.

Before them peoples are in anguish;
    all faces grow pale.


Joel 2:7-9
Like warriors they charge;
    like soldiers they scale the wall.
They march each on his way;
    they do not swerve from their paths.
They do not jostle one another;
    each marches in his path;
they burst through the weapons
    and are not halted.
They leap upon the city,
    they run upon the walls,
they climb up into the houses,
    they enter through the windows like a thief.


Joel 2:10,11

10 The earth quakes before them;
    the heavens tremble.
The sun and the moon are darkened,
    and the stars withdraw their shining.
11 YHWH utters his voice
    before his army,
for his camp is exceedingly great;
    he who executes his word is powerful.
For the day of YHWH is great and very awesome;
    who can endure it?


This is the Day of Jehovah God, a day of darkness and gloom, a day of clouds and thick darkness! How terrify of that day! A third of mankind will be killed by the mounted troops(volcanic eruption) when the 6th trumpet blow, it is the day of Great Tribulation.


Although it is the terrible day, but Jehovah is the God Almighty, his creations are wonderful, he is the God who performs miracles. May we all repent now, and praise and glorify our Father our creator Jehovah God! Amen.


When the 6th trumpet sounded, all 144000 saints are sealed complete, it means another half of Heavenly Kingdom is formed completely and the New Heaven has finished creating. Please read Seventy Sevens-Seventy Weeks about the 70th seven. And then what will God do at next stage? His will is made the “New Heaven and New Earth”, so next he will make the “New Earth”- the new land. What will God do?


He will create a new land-a great land, it will be created by twice ten thousand times ten thousand of volcanic(mounted troops). Even the seas will be replaced by the new land, Why we can say that?


Joel 2:18,20-23


18 Then YHWH became jealous for his land
    and had pity on his people.

20 “I will remove the northerner far from you,
    and drive him into a parched and desolate land,
his vanguard into the eastern sea,
    and his rear guard into the western sea;
the stench and foul smell of him will rise,
    for he has done great things.

21 “Fear not, O land;
    be glad and rejoice,
    for the Lord has done great things!
22 Fear not, you beasts of the field,
    for the pastures of the wilderness are green;
the tree bears its fruit;
    the fig tree and vine give their full yield.

23 “Be glad, O children of Zion,
    and rejoice in YHWH your God,
for he has given the early rain for your vindication;
    he has poured down for you abundant rain,
    the early and the latter rain, as before.


What did Jesus say about the End Day? Luke 21:25,26 “And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves, 26 people fainting with fear and with foreboding of what is coming on the world. For the powers of the heavens will be shaken.”


Luke 21:27,28 “And then they will see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory. 28 Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.”


2 Peter 3:13, “But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells”.


Joel 2:26,27
26 “And praise the name of YHWH your God,
Who has dealt wondrously with you;
Then My people will never be put to shame.
27 “Thus you will know that I am in the midst of Israel,
And that I am YHWH your God,
And there is no other;”


Revelation 21:1 “Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more.


May we all give Honor, Praise, Worship to Jehovah our God not the other, for he is the only True God who has dealt wondrously with you. Amen.


There is an most important that we are concerning question: How do we know when will be the 6th trumpet blown? How can we know the Great Tribulation is coming soon? Is there any sign for us?


Yes. If the 6th trumpet blow, it means the twice ten thousand times ten thousand of volcanic eruptions will happen. But before the volcanic eruptions, you can imagine the earthquake must be happened first. So during the 5th trumpet period(now), earthquake will happen more and more and get worse and worse, till to the 6th trumpet sounds and that will be the twice ten thousand times ten thousand volcanos eruptions. So more and more of earthquake happen will be the sign for us to know the Great Tribulation is coming soon(signal).


It seems happening now, for we found that the earthquake happened more and more and got worse and worse. I remembered at the before, the earthquake happened maybe one or two times a year, and then a few times a year, and then one or two times a month, and then happening now…


In Auguest 2023… 6th a magnitude 6 earthquake in northeastern Afghanistan; a magnitude 5.5 in Shandong Province, China; 11th a magnitude 5.3 earthquake in Turkiye; 18th a magnitude 6.3 earthquake in Colombia; 21st a magnitude 5.1 earthquake in Southern California, USA; 24th a magnitude 5.8 earthquake in Argentina; 28th a magnitude 5.7 earthquake in Colombia; 29th a magnitude 7.4 earthquake in Bali Sea Indonesia;


Till to the date 11th in September 2023, 2nd September a magnitude 6.1 earthquake in Russian Kuril Islands; 5th a magnitude 5.5 earthquake in Chiayi, Taiwan; 9th a magnitude 6.8 earthquake in Morocco; 11th a magnitude 6 earthquake in Sulawesi, Indonesia. Can you guess what will be happened soon? You know what do I mean – earthquake more and more.


Is this a clear and resounding signal to us that the sixth trumpet will be blown soon? Can you hear that the loud voice of the 6th trumpet? But even the 6th trumpet sounded and the Great Tribulation has happened, many people are still not repent and not worship the True God the Heavenly Father.


Revelation9:20,21 “The rest of mankind, who were not killed by these plagues, did not repent of the works of their hands nor give up worshiping demons and idols of gold and silver and bronze and stone and wood, which cannot see or hear or walk, 21 nor did they repent of their murders or their sorceries or their sexual immorality or their thefts.”.


May we all repent now and do not worship demons and idols, people who are the murders or sorceries or sexual immorality or thefts all have to repent now. Come to Jehovah God and give our Honor, Praise, Thankful, Worship to the Only True God. Amen.


The 6th trumpet is not yet ended and during this period, a “mighty angel coming down from heaven, wrapped in a cloud, with a rainbow over his head”… Let’s see <angel with a rainbow>.
