In the final book of the New Testament, seven trumpets are sounded, one at a time, to set off apocalyptic events seen by John of Patmos in his vision. According to Revelation 8:1-2 the angels sound these trumpets after the breaking of the Seventh Seal, which secured the scroll of the apocalypse, marking the Second Coming of Christ.
Currently, with the devastating events around the world, including coronavirus and the locust plague on the African continent, some have theorised that these events could represent the Four Horsemen from Revelation 6 – sent to cause famine and plague – coming to life.
