The second Trumpet or second Shofar

Revelation 8:8-9. One-third of the sea turned to blood, a third of the sea creatures died, a third of the ships were destroyed.

Remember the first of the ten plagues in Egypt – Exodus 7:20-21.

Once again the war between God and Satan is heating up.

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