Tag: Silence in Heaven
The Time of Trouble in Revelation is also called the “Hour of Trial”. This “Hour” has two sections: There is “silence in heaven for about half an hour”–during the Trumpet plagues God does not intervene to restrain Satan. The second “half an hour” is the Seven Last Plagues, when God intervenes to protects His people.
Revelation 8 begins with Silence in Heaven as the Seven Trumpets are about to sound. An angel with a Golden Censer has been protecting the earth, but when He throws down the censer and the 7 trumpets begin to sound the whole world is plunged into unimaginable chaos and grief.
