The book of Revelation contains wondrous signs and events that will happen prior to Jesus returning and reigning. When the seventh and final trumpet is blown, the long awaited arrival of the kingdom of God on earth will finally be at hand. In a great “amen”, the earth will display an awesome show. Lightening will flash, thunder will peal, hail will rain down, and a great earthquake will shake the world. And all of this to usher in the opening of the majestic, heavenly throne of God. The seat of the great “I am”, Creator and Ruler of all things! And there in God’s temple, the ark of His covenant. The visible presence and promise of God to be forever with His people, the ones He calls His own!
