REVELATION 8:1 – THE SEVENTH SEAL
IS THE PEACE TIME BETWEEN 2 WORLD WARS
1 When He opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour.
When The Lamb or The Savior Yeshua opened the 7th Seal there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. Which is this silence referred by John that signals the beginning of the 7th Seal? To arrive at a definite time frame, let us convert first the half an hour of silence in man’s time.
(2 Peter 3:8)
8 But, beloved, do not forget this one thing, that with the Lord one day is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
According to Apostle Peter, one thousand human years is equivalent to only one day to The Lord. Therefore, to get the half hour in The Lord’s time we have to divide 1,000 man years by 24 by 2. That would be 20.83 or 20 years and 10 months! What ‘silence’ or peace time in man’s history lasted for almost 20 years and 10 months?
Let us try the peace time between the First and Second World Wars. The First World War ended on November 11, 1918 while the Second World War started on September 1, 1939. That peace in between those two World Wars lasted for 20 years, 9 months and 13 days. This is about half an hour to The Lord and matched with the description of John. Therefore, the biblical start of the Seventh Seal could be pinpointed to begin on November 11, 1918.
While almost all preachers and church groups point to the 7th Seal as being the last set of events to happen being the last one seen by Apostle John in vision this movement begs to differ. In contrary with the understanding of all, we believe that the 7 great Seals in Revelation will be fulfilled in a reverse order from that which was seen by John in a vision. In this very uncommon presentation which many will consider radical, the set of events enclosed within the 7th Seal will be the first to happen moving down all the way until the fulfillment of the events within the 1st Seal. Only through this understanding can many events in the vision of John that ultimately leads to the Holy City make sense.
