The Condemnation

And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.John 3:19-20



God's 'trumpet warning' always precedes His Judgment and it is always at its loudest when the sin of humanity peaks. e.g In the days of Noah (Gen 6, 2 Pet 2:5), Lot's day (Gen 18:20-19:14) and Jonah's day (Jonah 1:2)

The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.2 Pet 3:9

Whenever sin (darkness,ignorance,evil) rules, It is imperative of God to exact vengeance on all those who promote and revel in it by giving them the consequences of their actions (Gal 6:7-8) and in any age that sin peaks and He has to exact justice, He always seeks to let people  know the consequences of their actions and the way to escape condemnation in order to avert the imminent destruction that they bring on themselves when choose to live in rebellion.
 
... It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you: but seeing ye put it from you, and judge yourselves unworthy of everlasting life, lo, we turn to the Gentiles.Acts 13:46

- Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man of their coasts,and set him for their watchman:If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own head.Eze 33:2-4
 


Also I set watchmen over you, saying, Hearken to the sound of the trumpet. But they said, We will not hearken.Jer 6:17


Sinners (not God) condemn themselves and count themselves worthy of death and hell
when they ignore the message (trumpet call) of repentance and deliverance that is sounded out to them and cling unto their self seeking and destructive ways

But my people would not hearken to my voice; and Israel would none of me.So I gave them up unto their own hearts' lust: and they walked in their own counsel.Psalm 81:11-12
 

 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the Lord: They would none of my counsel: they despised all my reproof.Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices.Prov 1:29-31


Illustration
If a person is in a dark room, it is normal that he/she would remain ignorant of many of the realities around him/her and he/she would easily mistake a cobra dangling above his/her head for a rope, but if the room was flooded with light, the cobra and many of the realities around him/her would be clearly manifest and if the person chooses to remain beneath the cobra despite the fact that it was clearly manifest to him/her that it was a cobra, he/she would have no one to blame but themselves if the cobra bit them.

-People who shut their eyes to reality simply invite their own destruction....James Baldwin

-If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin.
John 15:22


God's last warning
 

That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.Aldous Huxley

Once again, we are at a time where the sin of man has peaked and once again, God has unleashed His prophets to  preach the message (blow the trumpet) of deliverance from His imminent judgement and once again, many mock and scorn at the message being preached and go about their lives as if God and His will do not matter.

 
-And Lot went out, and spake unto his sons in law, which married his daughters, and said, Up, get you out of this place; for the Lord will destroy this city. But he seemed as one that mocked unto his sons in law.Gen 19:14

Neglect and perish
-How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him.Heb 2:3
-Likewise also as it was in the days of Lot; they did eat, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded;But the same day that Lot went out of Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.Even thus shall it be in the day when the Son of man is revealed.Luke 17:28-30

As it was in the days of Noah and Lot, so also it would be today. All those who ignore the trumpet that is currently sounding would judge themselves worthy of death and hell and would be condemned to perish.
