The Book of Revelation 8:2-6

Seven Trumpets

2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.

3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.

4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.

5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.

6 And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.”

(Rev 8:2-6 KJV)

As the seven angels prepare to sound their seven trumpets another angels brings a golden censer with incense that is to be offered with the prayers of the saints before the throne. As these offerings go up before the throne, fire is cast into the Earth. This fire brings voices, which will sounds like speech, or strange sounds, coming from the clouds. It will also bring thunder, lightning, and an earthquake. These events seem to be a great storm over the Earth so severe that it shakes the Earth, in preparation of the seven trumpets.
