The four angels hold back the winds (Re 7:1), then there was the silence of half an hour (Re 8:1); now the seven angels prepared themselves to sound. This implies that all things were being made ready for the great events to follow. Trumpets. The trumpet is used to give a signal. Usually it implied the march or charge of armies. See Joe 2:1,15; Jer 4:5 Eze 33:1-6. Sometimes it calls the people to worship. See Nu 31:6 1Ch 15:24. The reader will see that the first is likely to be the significance here.
