Eerie Silence

December 17

Daily Bible Reading: Revelation 8

Verse of the Day: Revelation 8:1 – 2 – “And when he opened the seventh seal, there followed a silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw the seven angels that stand before God; and there were given unto them seven trumpets.”

In our chapter today we move from the Seven Seal judgments into the Seven Trumpet judgments. The opening of the first six seals brought great devastation upon the Earth and mankind. Went the seventh seal was opened, there was an eerie silence that enveloped all creation. Like the quiet before the storm, the silence was overwhelming in light of what had already taken place. And now, after about a half of an hour of total silence in creation, the first four trumpet judgments are unleashed in rapid succession. Then, as if they weren’t distressing enough, an angel flew announcing that the final three were even greater woes.

Prayer: I thank You that You hold me in Your Hand. I find that You will protect me from the horrific judgments brought upon this world and Your Creation. I am Yours.
