When studying the seals, trumpets and seven last plagues, it is very important to understand the timeline illustrated by this graphic. The seals, trumpets and plagues are all parallel in their time frame. They each give information about this Christian dispensation from different perspectives. The seventh event in each series gives us a glimpse of what eternity will be like after Christ comes again.
