Revelation 11:15-19 NIV
The Seventh Trumpet
15 The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said:

“The kingdom of the world has become
the Kingdom of our Lord and of His Messiah,
and He will reign for ever and ever.”
16 And the twenty-four elders, who were seated on their thrones before God, fell on their faces and worshiped God, 17 saying:

“We give thanks to You, Lord God Almighty,
the One who is and who was,
because You have taken Your great power
and have begun to reign.
18 The nations were angry,
and Your wrath has come.
The time has come for judging the dead,
and for rewarding Your servants the prophets
and Your people who revere Your Name,
both great and small—
and for destroying those who destroy the earth.”
19 Then God’s Temple in heaven was opened, and within His Temple was seen the ark of His covenant. And there came flashes of lightning, rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a severe hailstorm.

 

Psalm 2:1-6 NLT
1 Why are the nations so angry?
Why do they waste their time with futile plans?
2 The kings of the earth prepare for battle;
the rulers plot together
against the Lord
and against His anointed One.
3 “Let us break their chains,” they cry,
“and free ourselves from slavery to God.”
4 But the One who rules in heaven laughs.
The Lord scoffs at them.
5 Then in anger He rebukes them,
terrifying them with His fierce fury.
6 For the Lord declares, “I have placed My chosen King on the throne
in Jerusalem, on My holy mountain.”
