The 7th Seal


Revelation 8:1 says, “When the Lamb opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour”. 


What does it mean? Why was silence in heaven half an hour after opened the 7th seal?


Revelation 17:12 says “And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received royal power, but they are to receive authority as kings for ‘one hour‘, together with the beast”.


And Matthew chapter 20 Jesus told his disciples the parable of “Laborers in the Vineyard”, “1 For the kingdom of heaven is like a master of a house who went out early in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. And about the eleventh hour he went out and found others standing. And he said to them, ‘Why do you stand here idle all day?’ They said to him, ‘Because no one has hired us.’ He said to them, ‘You go into the vineyard too.’”


And when those hired about the eleventh hour came, each of them received a denarius”. How long did the last workers work? Matthew 20:12 “saying, These last worked only ‘one hour‘”.


So what does the ‘one hour‘ mean? It means it is the last part or the last period of the kingdom work and also the final period of the ten horns, the beast and the prostitute. When Jesus open the 7th seal, the heaven silence half an hour. ‘Maybe’ it means when angels blew seven trumpets, the ten horns the beast and the prostitute have only half hour left. Also maybe the silence let us pay attention to the seven trumpets sound the message to us clearly , can you hear it?


Let’s see Revelation chapter 8 opened the 7th seal…


Then I saw the seven angels who stand before God, and seven trumpets were given to them. And another angel came and stood at the altar with a golden censer, and he was given much incense to offer with the prayers of all the saints on the golden altar before the throne, and the smoke of the incense, with the prayers of the saints, rose before God from the hand of the angel.


Then the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on ‘the earth‘, and there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake.


Now the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared to blow them.


We are sure that the 7th seal is closely related to the prayer of 144000 saints, who’s prayer can reach to Jehovah God like the smoke of incense rose before Him. When God accepted the saints’ prayer, the 7th seal opened, the censer filled it with fire from the altar and threw it on the earth, there were peals of thunder, rumblings, flashes of lightning, and an earthquake. The 1st to 6th trumpet are the six disasters that occurs on ‘the earth‘(the great tribulation), and the 7th trumpet is the God’s judgement for Devil, the beast and Babylon the great.


Let’s see what did the trumpets mean…


The 1st Trumpet


The first angel blew his trumpet, and there followed hail and fire, mixed with blood, and these were thrown upon the earth. And a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all green grass was burned up.


When the 1st trumpet was blew, the hail and fire mixed with blood were thrown upon the earth. What does it mean and symbolize? This symbolize the extreme weather will occur, the earth will occur the extreme cold and extreme hot weather. Mixed with blood means many lives will be killed. A third of the earth, a third of trees and all grass was burned up.


Let’s see some photos.


“A third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up”, it seems fulfilled in our days. Why we can say is our day? Because the disasters of the four trumpets are never happened before, the disaster of a third of earth.


Revelation 16:8,9 “The fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was allowed to scorch people with fire. They were scorched by the fierce heat”


It seems the earth will become hotter and hotter as the Revelation 16:8 says the sun will scorch people with fire… But how about “all green grass was burned up”? We in faith it shall be fulfilled too, maybe fulfill at that time.


The 2nd Trumpet

The second angel blew his trumpet, and something like a great mountain, burning with fire, was thrown into the sea, and a third of the sea became blood. A third of the living creatures in the sea died, and a third of the ships were destroyed.


What does it mean and symbolize? You can imagine a great mountain burning with fire which thrown into the sea will make it hot. And our oceans are warming now, which kills the life of oceans. A third of the living creatures in the sea are died. Oceans are warming also increases typhoon intensification, so a third of ships were destroyed.


Let’s see some photos…


The 3rd Trumpet


10 The third angel blew his trumpet, and a great star fell from heaven, blazing like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of water. 11 The name of the star is Wormwood. A third of the waters became wormwood, and many people died from the water, because it had been made bitter.


When the 3rd trumpet was blew, a third of rivers and springs on earth became wormwood and made it bitter. What does it mean and symbolize? It symbolized the rivers and springs are polluted, people can’t drink it otherwise they will die.


Let’s see some photos…


The 4th Trumpet


12 The fourth angel blew his trumpet, and a third of the sun was struck, and a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of their light might be darkened, and a third of the day might be kept from shining, and likewise a third of the night.


What does it mean and symbolize of “a third of the sun was struck”, “a third of the moon, and a third of the stars, so that a third of their light might be darkened”? Modern people call it smog and it occurred in many countries, such as America, China, India, Southeast Asian countries… a third on the earth. During the day, a third of the sun was struck and be darkened. During the night, the light moon and stars were darkened too.


Let’s see some photos…


These four disasters are occurring, and we are suffering now. It seems it will last continuously until the End Day, unlike the fifth and the sixth trumpet will be passed. We are sure that we are living in the 7th seal period now, for these four disasters are never happened before and occurred in this big scale – a third of earth.


Do you see that it is being fulfilled? Can you hear the sound of trumpets?


What are the 5th, the 6th and the 7th trumpets? Before angel blow these three trumpets…


13 Then I looked, and I heard an eagle crying with a loud voice as it flew directly overhead, “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth, at the blasts of the other trumpets that the three angels are about to blow!”


It said “Woe, woe, woe to those who dwell on the earth” when the other trumpets are blew. What does it mean or symbolize? The other three trumpets symbolize the big “woe” the great tribulation, “to those who dwell on the earth”.


Let’s see the <5th trumpet>…
