In Revelation, “trumpets” primarily announce impending judgment. The “trumpet judgments” are of greater intensity than the “seal judgments,” but not as destructive as the final “bowl judgments” will be (16:1-21).
Revelation Trumpets, Trumpet Judgments, Seven Angels, Golden Censer, Fire From The Alter
We have already seen the seven seals, the seven trumpets, and the seven personalities. Now the upcoming seven bowls of wrath are the worst of all.
God's Wrath, Wrath Of God, Sea Of Glass, Seven Angels
These bowls are only poured out on the enemies of God and of Christ, and of His church and people; for no wrath can be poured out upon the saints, not a single drop can fall upon them, because that would not be consistent with God's everlasting love.
