The trumpet blasts that announce the judgments in these two chapters all hold with them powerful displays of God who has held back judgment for so long. After having lived through the hurricane season of 2004 where 3 hurricanes went over my house in the course of just a few weeks, I partly can see how being without gas, water, electricity, and more for days on end can be difficult to go through. I cannot imagine what these judgments will be like however. Painful and people wishing they could just die. I pray for a quick end to these judgments and that people will see why they are happening which is to turn them back to the God who loves them.
