Seven angelic trumpeters

Seven trumpets sounded, one at a time.  In Revelation, the angels sound these seven trumpets after the breaking of the seventh seal.  The events that followed were described in great detail.  These trumpets were straight, narrow bronze tubes with a mouthpiece of bone and a bell, not like modern trumpets.  In Christian eschatology, all the first six trumpets were used as a wakeup call to the sinners on earth, a call to repentance.  Each trumpet blast brought with it a plague of a more disastrous nature than the one before it.  The trumpet was used to build anticipation and tell the reader that an alert, an announcement, or a warning was about to take place.  The seventh trumpet did not bring a plague with it, but sounded so that glory was given to God and His kingdom.  These trumpet blasts were like war trumpets against the apostate Israel of that time period.  They correspond to events in the various Jewish Wars.  The seventh trumpet showed that time was no more.  Jesus rules and reigns forevermore.  He rewards the righteous and judges the wicked.  Have you ever played a trumpet?
