Considering how religious groups read into the Bible the way they do, and seem to find meanings in the text that not all would see without suggestion.

I wanted to ask, and make an off the wall assumption in the same fashion.


Do you think the meaning, in Revelations, of trumpets sounding will be heard around the world, should be taken seriously as Trump's followers?

The trumpets are sounding world wide.
Is this the start of the great war?

I myself am not a church going being, but I find myself diving into religious article's, and multiple Bible's on occasion.

Open your mind, pull out your keyboard, and let's discuss this. The followers of Trump's campaign have been given the name. Does this name carry a dark side?

It's probably Trump ETs. so maybe Trump is going to bring on UFO disclosure? Maybe that's what the bible is teaching us? This one is probably a question for Phage though. Phage? What say you?!

It can`t be referring to real trumpets because they weren`t even invented yet when the bible was written,so maybe it refers to a possible resurgence in nationalism around the world.

The first shots of the American revolution are referred to as " the shot heard around the world", so the bible is using a metaphor when it says trumpets heard around the world.

something definitely is hinting at trying to be played out. With all the same scenarios just different stories showing up in a lot of television programming series or Hollywood movies. Whether it's a false deceptive fulfillment or actual prophecy coming to fruition. Only time will tell...

1 Corinthians 15:52 King James Version

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.

I was thinking the same thing about the trumpet not being a musical instrument for the same reason. That was the reason for the question.

Aww and I had just started to accept the deplorables moniker...
Does this mean I should now consider myself in cahoots with the Anti-Christ?
Oh boy I needed a good laugh today.
Thanks op.

I was thinking it was made up by someone during one of the many re-writes of the bible by some random person for the same reason.

No, for three reasons.

Firstly, scripture does not work with English puns. The similarity between the English words "Trump" and "trumpet" is as irrelevant as the similarity between "Satan" and "Santa".

Secondly, the trumpets in Revelation are not random sounds. There is a specific sequence of seven, marking out different stages of the vision.

Thirdly, there is no indication whatever that they would be heard "around the world". They take place within the vision, amongst the symbols of the vision. They are a way of organising the message, for the benefit of John himself and the people reading the book.

Gawd, I've only just finished breathing a big sigh of relief because that silly "Obama nation" pun was about to go out of fashion. I suppose "Trump= trumpets" is going to follow us about now for the next four or eight years.

Or as a plan by the elite to depopulate, and certain passages brought to light as a warning to those who know. Perhaps as time passes and these "scriptures", or plans come into play, certain happenings are warnings, or reminders for those with a need to know. Like a 1500 year plan for global domination. With that in mind it makes the trumpet statement that much more eerie.

I doubt it.

I may be wrong, but this is my (layman's) understanding:

The word translated as trumpet in Rev is from the Greek σαλπίζω, which means roughly, to trumpet, make a loud sound, or a loud blast, and can be literal or figurative.

The word appears likely derived from the Greek σάλπιγξ, which means roughly a trumpet in a modern context, so it's interesting that this was not used instead of the word meaning to trumpet/sound/blast.

It is in turn possibly derived from σάλος, meaning a quaver, a billow, or a wave.

Peace.

Well we've had the sky trumpets , maybe that was it.
We may find they were a warning and that Trump is the Devil , Elon Musk is the second coming sent down to help Humanity and fight the evil when it arrives .... soon there shall be a great sky battle.

False. Trumpets were invented as far back as 1500 BC.

There are also 63 other references in the bible to trumpets, talking about a noise from a musical instrument, or a loud sound made. 64 total.

Case closed.

64 Trumpet Ref's

Thanks for doing the digging, I was about to, because I knew there were not only literal trumpets, but that the name for the instrument could well have meant to push a sound out loudly through a tube, like how an elephant "trumpets" long before the modern "trumpet" came to be.

Maybe tardacus was just being silly, but it never helps to make statements as if you know something for a fact when you don't.

Also, the modern instrument was named after the verb. That the modern trumpet as we know it did not exist is really irrelevant in the light of the verb's meaning. It's a cart and horse thing. The modern instrument came after the longstanding verb. Lots of instruments "trumpet' their sound, including coronets, baritones, baritones, etc.

Yes yes yes yes. Good thought, or rather that's a horrible thought I really rather that someone puts a stopper down the end of the Trumpet although I do love the sound of trumpets in a good Ska band.

I believe to truly understand the Bible you have to be saved. The Holy Spirit is what guides us into understanding.

Personally I believe in a literal interpretation of the Bible. So the Revelation trumpets that you're talking about are literal trumpets sounded from heaven.

This is the best series on Revelation I've ever seen. It goes through each chapter for an hour so it is quite long but it is quite well done and it's good informative preaching. If you're interested in the subject.
