Will everyone hear the rapture trumpet?

by Stephen Davey

Joyce from Florida asked: Will everyone hear the sound of the trumpet at the rapture?


Hi Joyce,

As you have noted, there's a trumpet blast when Christ comes for His people.

“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first” (I Thessalonians 4:16).

“Behold, I tell you a mystery; we will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet; for the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed” (I Corinthians 15:51-52).

The Bible doesn’t specifically indicate if only believers will hear the trumpet. However, I believe everyone will hear it. The reason I think that because the other trumpets of the end times in Revelation 8-11 seem to be audible to those on earth. I believe it's likely that everyone will hear this trumpet as well.

By the way, that trumpet blast will serve as another testimony to the truthfulness of God’s Word, and will be a warning for those left behind to repent of their sin.

Thanks for your question,

Hi there! My question is, when will the tribulation occur? Does it occur before the rapture or after? Once people are raptured what happens then? What happens to the people who are raptured? Are they in heaven? are people from the rapture going to get judged? or when does the judgement seat of christ occur? Tank you and may god bless you! xD

In the year 2018 l was woken up by a horn being blew,l got out of my bed to see where the sound was coming from. I opened my front door and step out on the porch. I noticed the sound seen to be coming from the sky. It continues for another few minutes. I went to work to see was anyone else talking about it but everyone looked at me like l was crazy. One lady everybody will hear trumpet blown not just a few. But l still wonder about that today. Was l hearing the trumpet being blowed or was it a strange event in the heaven

when the trumpet sound the righteous will be taken, with that being said will their be planes falling from the sky cars wrecks airplanes crashing train jumping rails because many of them will be taken.

Thank you just was wondering. Does Christian need to baptized in or for salvation?

Just saying Jesus loves ya ❤️

I'm in agreement with Pastor Davey that everyone will hear the trumpet. The question is, will the unbelievers recognize the sound of a trumpet or will they hear something that sounds like thunder or some other sound. They'll know something happened as they'll see the evidence of the open tombs and graves and the chaos caused by operators of all vehicles being removed causing wrecks in the air, on the rils and the road.
Via says:
Of course they will. The entire world will hear the coming of Jesus. He will arrive with a billion angels and horsemen to fight for his bride and end earth as we know it. If GOD was here, he would tell you to your face, Man you're some kind of Sinner..Signs signs everywhere are signs!
Jane Schmidt says:
I too believe it will be heard by everyone. I can't wait.
Jude says:
I strongly believe everyone will hear the sound of the trumpet
Joseph Eason says:
The trumpet sounds WILL be heard by all. Audibly. I am almost certain that this will happen during my life time. And when it does, I kind of don’t want to be brought up in the rapture because I want to be able to run around to all my unbelievers friends I had and all the people I know who called themselves “Atheists”, and run up to each one of their faces and yell “I TOLD YOU SOOOO!!” And just laugh my ass off at them, “I told you so. I told you so. I told you so. I was right and you were wrong! I told you soooo!!”.. hahaha and then after I do all that to all those jerks who gave me a hard time I will immediately fal flat on my face and beg for forgiveness of the sin of being a dickhead to those people. I probably won’t ever lift my face ever again either. Just stay laying down with my face on the for how ever long it takes for Jesus to come and slay everyone and pray to Jesus that I’m not one of them.

If I am worthy of entering Heaven, will I know my family. If there are 7 heavens how will I know how to find them. If and when the Rapture comes will I get smart as other people. I’m tired of not being smart.

Good morning Joyce,, On Sunday, 20 Nov’22 we had our first day of the Holy Ghost Fire Revival. I requested my daughter to take a video on my preaching. After the service I decided to watch the video but this was visible from it as follow: (1) When I started with my sermon just a few minutes there was no voice and started moving in a slow motion without any voice. (2) Secondly, as I couldn’t hear any voice I heard a strange loud voice like a thunderstorm (3) Thirdly, I heard a voice like a bell continuously ringing. My sermon was based on, John 11-14 I need some spiritual clarity on this. I never experienced such in my life time. I want to know whether was it from Father Lord or from the enemy. God bless

My Teenage Daughter and I heard one of the Trumpets. They do NOT sound on Earth. ONLY in heaven. We were sleeping. We heard a Shofar in heaven sound a blast 3 times. We both awoke and sat up instantly. Amazed that we had both heard it in Heaven at the same time! We were given ears to hear in heaven. Not the same ears we hear with on earth. The spirit has ears and it’s only this way that it can be heard. I know this only because it happened to us on October 23, 2020. In March of 2020 I was given spiritual eyes and allowed to see the Angel of the Lord. He was in the clouds. He was reading the hearts of man and recording their deeds with impartiality. I try to make videos about my experiences with The Lord. Here is the link to one of my videos. I hope these help you all. Stay encouraged. We are in the final push. Endure to the end.

Some believe the trumpet will sound to each as their on name. As when Jesus called to Lazarus to come forth. Had he not specifically called his name all the dead would have come forth.
Joseph says:
I think only the believers will here the trumpet. Jesus is coming like a thief in the night. A thief doesn't give any warning of his arrival. He's gone before you realize you've been robbed. Jesus said my sheep know my voice. Remember we're waiting and looking for His appearance, the world is not.

When my mother died the priest started saying a prayer. My sister and I couldn’t hear him because there was a loud sound, the sound of a trumpeter. When the priest finished speaking the sound of the trumpeter stopped. It was the weirdest thing.
Alizay says:
Hi I have a question, will everyone hear the 1st trumpet together cuase I heard and seen people saying the we will only hear the 2 last one 6th and 7th and that the first ones were already heard but I believed we all hear them all together?
Darla says:
That means they will die for the cause of Christ
Heather says:
I heard it loud and clear September 2021. I was at the lowest point in my life. It happened after my daughter’s father passed away 😢 One thing I know is that after I heard it I knew there is a God after years of thinking I was forgotten. Times are scary now but I feel at peace knowing I’m not alone anymore. Since I heard it I know our father is keeping me safe. To anyone who thought your alone your not! 💕

If all hear the trumpet, the shout and the voice of Michael the archangel there can be no discussion of aliens abduction, or any other explanation other than Jesus coming for His bride, unlike the 2nd coming where He comes with His bride. The beginning of the tribulation but also the beginning a a great revival
