1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. 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 itwith 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 8:1-6 (KJV)
For 30 minutes, nothing happens. Even the wind on the earth will stop momentarily.
I recently read somewhere, that this moment is like the moment someone in your home loses their temper. The stillness and silence afterwards…
There is a procession in heaven, as the seven angels pick up the trumpets. You won’t see it, but if all of you will find me after the Glorious appearing, I’ll describe it to you.
The sign you’ll have that it happened will be silence and no wind or breeze for half an hour, then and earthquake combined with a thunderstorm. There will be heavenly voices as well. This is a BIG clue this is not just a natural disaster.
There have been strange sounds on the Earth as the days approached the Tribulation. Brazil, the United States and the UK have heard these odd sounds. It almost sounds like an exceptionally loud trumpet blowing a long sustained note.
During this time, the 144,000 servants of God are all sealed on their foreheads. It may possibly be a visible sign. The Antichrist will insist shortly on all his followers getting a mark in their forehead or hand.
I’ve mentioned it before, and I’m going to repeat this as many times as possible. The mark of the Antichrist is a no-turning back choice. DO NOT TAKE THE MARK!!! There is no hope of salvation if you have the Mark.
The Seventh Seal and Seventh Trumpet Judgments both are similar. They unlock the next seven judgments to occur.
