Exposition: Trumpet Overview

In the Bible, trumpets are used to announce new kings. For example, trumpets announced Joash's coronation:

And she looked, and, behold, the king stood at his pillar at the entering in, and the princes and the trumpets by the king: and all the people of the land rejoiced, and sounded with trumpets, also the singers with instruments of music, and such as taught to sing praise. Then Athaliah rent her clothes, and said, Treason, Treason. (2 Chronicles 23:13)

Athaliah was an interloper who had usurped the throne. She thought she had destroyed all rightful heirs to the throne but failed to kill one true heir, Joash. Here, Joash is crowned king and Athaliah knows her reign is over by the trumpets' sound and the accompanying shouts of joy.

In the great tribulation, a future interloper, the son of perdition, attempts to usurp Jesus' throne but Revelation's seven trumpets announce the rightful king's coronation. Jesus' coronation follows immediately after the seventh trumpet and makes the application of trumpets announcing the new king's coronation a very strong application candidate for Revelation's trumpet judgments.His coronation is the focus of Revelation 10-11 and the establishment of His earthly throne is a primary theme of Revelation 12-19.
