Critical Thinking

This is an invitation to grow through purposely thinking about scripture.
The seven trumpets in Revelation 8 and 9 depict seven woes upon the world. There are many questions about these disasters which we have no definite answer to.

How literal are they to be taken?

When will they happen?

Will the children of God be present on the earth during them?

If so, will they be harmed by them?

The best answer for all of these might be found in a parable of Jesus concerning ten virgins. Read it for yourself in Matthew 25:1-13. The point of the parable is perhaps the best answer to the previous questions.

How can you best prepare yourself and stay ready?
