Revelation does not chronologically relate the events of future history in order. It presents the visions that John saw in the order that he wrote them down. The seven trumpets begin with a kind of flashback to the beginning of the seals. Instead of a line, it is more of a spiral.
This section of Revelation also teaches us an importan lesson about prayer. You have to pray with an attitude of trust, not an attitude of control.
