The seventh seal can be found in Revelation 8:1 and reads as follows…
“When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.”
A great world work revealed in Revelation chapter seven takes place before the coming of Christ, and when it is finished we come to the opening of the final seal and silence in heaven.
>> The 7 seals: background & overview
>> The sixth seal and the earthquake
The seventh seal talks about silence—just silence. The sixth seal brings us the events connected with the second coming of Christ. The seventh seal, naturally then, must reveal the second advent itself or some result of it. We read in Matthew 25:31 that when our Savior comes, all the holy angels come with Him. So there is silence in heaven during their absence. A half-hour of prophetic time would be about seven days.
The seven seals bring us to the second coming of Christ. Heaven is interested in earth. This time the Saviour does not come alone as a babe in Bethlehem; He comes as King of kings, and Lord of lords, plus His Father's glory, His own glory, and the glory of all the holy angels, as we read in Luke 9:26.
This great prophecy of the seven seals found in Revelation 6 and 8 has been fulfilled step by step right down to our day, and the rest of it will soon be accomplished. Are you ready for its final fulfillment?
