“And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.”
King James Version (KJV)

On the opening of the 7th seal (year 2000) there will be silence for 1/2 hour. 1/2 hour of silence in Heaven equals roughly 20 years on earth. COVID is the first of many plagues that are going to be unleashed on the earth. Hold tight people things are about to get real ugly!

The silence comes before a great storm the power of silence is everywhere and most of all the power of GOD is everywhere so the half hour is not much time to God as we know a thousand years are as one day. I believe a half hour of silence is the minimum needed to get people to slow down focus and listen prepare for what is about to happen. God does not order or command he lets us use our free will to stop listen and respond with respect.

God commanded in his word Be Still and Know That I God, to me the half hour is in respect fear of the lord be for his wisdom and truth takes action. The pause is needed to get the attention of all.

I had a vision an angel was yelling out THE 7TH DAY THE 7TH MONTH THE 7TH IS HOLY THE 7TH IS SABBATH THE 7TH SEAL Very powerful vision Jesus sent me an Angel to prepare for this seal to be opened The silence in heaven for the half hour I feel strongly that it is very similar to when we down here give a moment of silence for the deaths of multitudes The martyrs had been crying out for justice when the seal is opened the silence for one half hour is quiet prayer for the multitudes who are getting ready to perish by God s hand of JUSTICE simple as that Joanofarc77 wordpress

And when he had opened the seventh seal there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour The people of the earth declared peace for three mouths in order to deceive the people of the world that the false Messiah was the real deal by first entering into Jerusalem with flatteries then back to war and spreading of heresy to destroy the peoples of the earth

During Moses time, whenever the presence (Holy Spirit) of God was in the tabernacle no one was allowed inside so there was silence, no one was there. So I believe that the day of pentacostal God sent his holy spirit to the tabernacle, church, temple, his angels (servants). So at this it is quiet until all his saints has been return to him and his will has been done.

I believe that this silence in heaven of about the space of half an hour' could be something to do with the time period on earth between the end of World War I and the beginning of World War II; If one takes 1000 years to man (which in Hebrews and other Bible passages is often referred to as just one day only to God) and divide this by 48 which equals (approximately 21 years or) more accurately 20 years and 10 months. Now count the number of years and months from November 11th 1918 to September 3rd 1939 and this is also 20 years and 10 months. I think this is worth considering in studying Revelation 8:1.

my comment is a parallel topic:
a question; is there anyone who has calculated the prophetic messages pertaining their possible connection to huge influences on the entirety of civilization such as: the instant macro discovery of electricity utilization worldwide? Or other similar occurrences before and after Christ's crucifixion (occurrences more profound than for example many of the achievements such as airplane flight, or creating a compass, or something changed like a virus or a nutrient)
what could be a list of revealed macrocosms that changed history? And could those macrocosms be predicted in the Bible? Excluding those prophecies that have not yet occurred, but I am speaking of prophecies that could have already happened; for example something larger than the internet or oil or could it be the usage of electricity or the usage of radio waves, a sociological experiences such as the Enlightenment period or the Medieval Ages or etc etc etc.... well hope someone comes across this comment I typed and left here and has some fun and encouragement from it, or if someone has some good ideas let me know and reply, I might check back!

I think Jesus left the Holy Place and went to the Most Holy Place, therefore leaving it empty, and silent. God the Father, is the One who tells Jesus to "Go and Collect My Children" the time has come. It concludes the 7,000 year, demonstration of what sin does.
