Sign of the Apocalypse? Trumpet-Like Sounds Recorded on Video in Hawaii

A video recording of eerie trumpet sounds from Hawaii has gone viral on YouTube, leading some to speculate that the End Times and the Second Coming of Jesus Christ are imminent. Others suggested UFOs, scientific explanations, and even Godzilla. (Watch the video below.)

“Jesus Christ is coming soon. I say it is a trumpet,” a YouTube user named “Believer John Seventeen” posted.

Another user agreed. “Christ shall return. If you know Him, then you know His warnings — every eye shall hear and every ear shall hear,” posted “Roger Dat.” “Be not afraid for you are saved by faith in Jesus. Repent and turn from wickedness. The price was paid at Calvary and as He was risen, so shall His disciples be.”

The video itself has no clear religious meaning, however.

Snippins News posted the video, reporting, “Not the first time to be heard, but it’s been heard in multiple places all strangely at the same time.”

“Unusual and unexplained noises are recorded in various locations around the world from time to time,” Snippins News added. “While the specific origins of all such sounds may not yet be known, most scientific research points to natural causes such as tidal waves, methane explosions, underground earthquakes, or shifting sand dunes as explanations for these aural phenomena.”

Even so, the YouTube channel remarked that “USGS scientist David Hill says it’s also possible some of these noises originate from above.”

Multiple users asked to share the video on their own YouTube channels, one with an alien focus. “Can we share this video on our Secureteam UFO channel with full credit and link back to your channel?” the alien-focused Secureteam YouTube channel posted.

Another user, perhaps joking, merely commented, “Godzilla.”

User Jeff Suttles twisted the End Times angle into a Trump joke. “Heaven is trying to influence the outcome of the 2020 election by blowing trumpets,” he wrote. “I say that Donald is colluding with heaven. Time to call for a special council [sic] and impose sanctions.”

Christians believe that Jesus Christ will bodily return and resurrect all the dead for a final judgment. There will be one last great battle between good and evil, and God will create a new heaven and a new earth.

Beyond these general points, Christians disagree on the interpretation of the book of Revelation. Many End Times theorists have attempted to predict the exact time when Jesus will return, but Jesus rather explicitly said that not even He knew “that day or hour.”

But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man. For in the days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day Noah entered the ark; and they knew nothing about what would happen until the flood came and took them all away. That is how it will be at the coming of the Son of Man (Mathew 24:36-39).

The book of Revelation records John’s vision that seven trumpets will sound, as part of God’s final judgment.

These sounds prove eerie, but some users suggested there would be a scientific explanation — or that the noises could even be a hoax. If these were any of the trumpets in Revelation, hail and fire mixed with blood would burn up a third of the trees on the planet, a third of the oceans would become blood, freshwater sources would be poisoned, the sun would become dark, or even worse things would happen.

The sounds in this video may seem weird, but they likely have no End Times significance whatsoever.
