1st Trumpet – Hail and fire mixed with blood

Revelation 8:7. After the blowing of the first shofar or trumpet came hail and fire mixed with blood. One third of the earth burned and one third of the trees and all the green grass burned up.

Remember Exodus 9:22-26 the 7th plague.

The trumpet referred to here was a shofar, which is a ram’s horn which was used by the Israelites for religious purposes and for warfare.

The last Trump is the longest time the blower of the shofar can hold a note. It refers to the last time the shofar is blown in the Feast of Trumpets.
