Read Revelation 8
What was your big “take-away” from this passage / message? Which trumpet stood out to you and why?
What’s the significance of the judgments and “1/3”? Why didn’t God let these trumpets affect 100% of their respective regions?
What does Rev 8:3-5 tell you about your prayers? How should these verses affect the way you pray?
What purpose does the angel/eagle in Rev 8:13 serve? What does this tell you about God and His judgment?
Pray for unsaved family and friends. Pray specifically for an opportunity for you to invite them to HBC and/or share the Gospel with them.
