There was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. Revelation 8:1
You may remember a while back that I wrote a poem about ‘The Silence from Heaven‘. Well, one of my readers has this blog and I decided to check it out and THIS is what I found. I would love you all to check it out and see what you all think. I am a bit struck by what’s going on to be honest with you…
If you want to know more, read Zephaniah 1 and Isaiah 24 (see below) I believe both of these chapters have within them the keys to this time and to this mystery of Revelation 8:1. I’m focusing on the “silent” part, haven’t really dove into the time frame study.
It seems, according to scripture, there is a silence before destruction. We see silence as reverence, a silencing of our enemies, a way to act when we are angry, yet over and over again we see a silence both before destruction and a silence after the desolation. I imagine all the host of heavens still –gasping to breath- silence as they watch the Lord God Almighty rise up from His throne. What a terrifying moment.
