Seventh Seal: Prelude to the Seven Trumpets


Rev 8:1  And when He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in Heaven for about half an hour.
Rev 8:2  And I saw the seven angels who stood before God, and seven trumpets were given to them.
Rev 8:3  And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer. And many incenses were given to him, so that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints on the golden altar before the throne.
Rev 8:4  And the smoke of the incense which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God from the angel’s hand.
Rev 8:5  And the angel took the censer and filled it with fire from the altar, and cast it into the earth. And voices and thunderings and lightnings and an earthquake occurred.
Rev 8:6  And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
