The Seven Angels 

New Testament: Rev 8.2

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 8 on December 17, In the year of our Lord Christ 2021

By Don Ruhl 

Great expectations and wonder must have filled John’s heart when he saw what he showed us in Revelation 8.2, which says, 

And I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and to them were given seven trumpets.

– Revelation 8.2 

Seeing God is the wonder of all wonders, but John saw and heard many other things. Imagine seeing God, then suddenly seeing, “the seven angels who stand before God,” knowing that they are special angels with special jobs. These particular angels are before God Himself! 

Then they were given trumpets. You would wonder what was going to happen next! They were going to sound those trumpets to introduce something. What would they introduce? Well, to introduce something from the presence of God, you know that it would be something mighty. Read Revelation 8 and find out.
