When Did the 7 Trumpets Start Sounding?

the 5th trumpet has sounded?
the 5th trumpet has sounded?

(Rev 8:5) And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
(Rev 8:6) And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.

I must be deaf because according to Murray the 5th trumpet has already sounded.

A large portion of Chapel teaching about prophecy centers around the revelation of the Antichrist in the 6th trumpet which could happen at any moment. At this point the whole teaching is rather confusing and not very clear.

I’m not sure Murray knew what he taught about eschatology…

Somehow he and his elect are teaching about Antichrist’s revelation in the 6th during this huge expanse of time since the 5th trumpet sounded. We’ve now been in the 5th trumpet phase for over 30 years at least. When the Antichrist shows up in the 6th he reigns for 2.5 months… but that’s after the deadly wound so somehow he was reigning before the 6th trumpet for 2.5 months… are you serious?

He seemed certain that the tribulation or the 70th week of Daniel was shortened to 5 months based on this passage…

“And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect’s sake those days shall be shortened.” – Matthew 24:22

And then he shortens the great tribulation to 2.5 months. So a period of 1260 days is shortened to about 75 days… that’s comforting! We also learn that Christians are not killed during the tribulation but all the deaths are figurative spiritual deaths occurring due to deception and that all these have a second chance in the millennium…

Dear heavens! Where do I sign up? False religion is very smooth, that’s why it gains so many adherents.

I listened to messages in the past where he stated that the 5th trumpet sounded in the 60’s with the appearance of hurricane “Camille” a category “5” typhoon.

Then I’ve seen where he states that it sounded in the 80’s when Mount Saint Helen’s erupted. Of course, Elijah’s face in the puff of volcano smoke is all the proof you need, right?

So that begs the question, when did the other trumpets sound?

The answer: NO trumpets have ever sounded!

The trumpets take place distinctly during the great tribulation as judgments upon humanity due in no small part because of their worship of the beast and persecution of God’s people…

“And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne […] And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake. And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.” – Revelation 8:3,5-6

During the great tribulation the beast will begin to violently persecute Christians and require the people of the world to receive a mark. The saints respond and pray for God’s judgments to fall upon the world – they are the two witnesses!

“These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.” – Revelation 11:6

God sends the angels to administer judgment through trumpets on behalf of the saints…

THAT IS IN THE FUTURE! Be assured of that… the poor Chapel student walks around in a state of constant spiritual bewilderment thinking that the 5th trumpet has sounded but this in their imagination.

So when you hear all this talk about trumpets blasting in the 60’s just know that it is more religious speculation mistaken for reality… the real trumpets will sound during the great tribulation and it will not be a truncated 2.5 month amusement park ride but 42 months of VIOLENT, MURDEROUS persecution – sweeping, bloody, global… Genocide!

  1. I agree, it’s the writing style. I can recognize it all over the internet. I believe the weirdness stems from the fact that he never really did study with the chapel, at all. Did you read the testimony? Made no sense to me at all. Sure, he’s probably watched some video clips that someone showed him, but study with them? I don’t think so. How can I be so bold to say such a thing? Because I too used to study with them about 15 years ago and then just stopped, for no particular reason. Did I agree with everything he taught? Of course not. You know why? Because the one greatest thing that he taught was to study for yourself. “Don’t listen to this man (referring to himself) without checking him out in the Word.” That’s no cult friend.

    The writer of this blog does not sound like a student of the Word.


    1. I never studied with the Chapel… okay. Reality is, there are so many articles to write exposing his teachings that I merely skimmed the surface and introduced the ideas. The fact is, you don’t want evidence refuting the Chapel errors, do you?


  2. 1 Corinthians 14:8 For if the trumpet give an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle? People will know we are in the end times when great calamities start happening. It is not something that only Dr. Murray could sense or hear. I think that the Antichrist will claim that humanity have sinned so much that God will destroy the Earth if they do not repent. That humanity need to obey his laws with all their heart and soul. He will bring prosperity and peace but demand worship. He will make a covenant with the whole world. Even the very elect will be close to accept this as the millennium kingdom prophesied by Ezekiel. It will be peaceful and prosperous and yet a counterfeit of Christ’s real millennium.


    1. Yes, I agree – I believe the book of Revelation has strong historical (unfolding through the entirety of the church age) aspect to it. Jesus opens saying the things written must shortly come to pass – they did, and they continue down to our present time
