"Reconnecting the Heart of Man, back to the Heart of Father-God, through the Prophetic Song of the Spirit..." 
"...There was Silence in Heaven about the Space of Half an Hour"

Revelation, chapter 8, begins with, "And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets."  Throughout The Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, there is mention of an "hour of judgment".  These are prophetic or symbolic terms.  This does not mean that our loving, Heavenly Father is going to destroy Planet Earth in 60-minutes; any more than Jesus meant for us, literally, to pluck out our eyeballs, cut off our hands, or hack off our feet... should they cause us to offend!  This might very well upset people, but Jesus says His words are "spirit" and "life"; meaning... they are not meant to be taken literally, from our natural mind's point of view.  Ruh-roh!  We really do need to study and meditate the Scriptures; so that we can rightly divide the word of truth, between the Law of Moses (dead letter) versus the Grace & Truth of Jesus Christ (spirit).  We have time for Netflix, don't we?

Could it be that one reason why there is "silence in heaven" for about the space of "half an hour", is because there is a glorious absence of a pure, true, Heavenly-Corporate Voice?  There has most definitely been a mixed, "dazed and confused" Corporate Voice... for sure!  Therefore, it is no great wonder, as Peter says, "For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God."  Why?  For what purpose?  Could it be that the role of these Seven Angels is to help "bring forth" that Pure & Heavenly-Corporate Voice, "...as it were the voice of a great multitude, and as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of mighty thunderings"?  Have we ever realized that these Seven Angles, who are given Seven Trumpets, are the very same Seven Angels of the Seven Churches; who are mentioned in Revelation, chapters 2 & 3?  What qualifies them to receive Seven Trumpets?  What are these mysterious Seven Trumpets?  What happens when these Trumpets begin to "sound"?

Come and join us for a wonderful time of fellowship and fresh revelation,
tomorrow morning... Sunday, July 3rd @ 10AM at The Inn at Reading... as we will begin exploring the depths of the "sounding" of the First Trumpet.  Are literal hail and fire mingled with blood, going to fall out of the sky and onto the ground?  Or, do these things mean something else?  Is God going to count every third tree, and burn it up with fire?  Is God mad at the trees?  If so, how have they offended Him?  What is their sin?  Come on!  What, all of the sudden, God hates green grass?  Then number one, why did He bother creating it; and number two, how dare we feed our lawns!  You know that we are just kidding, right, being sarcastic?  One of the proofs of self-righteousness is an absence of a good sense of humor.  We look forward to seeing you there, and then (at The Inn)!  Love & blessings...


Revelation 8: 1-7 (KJV)
1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
2 And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
3 And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
4 And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel's hand.
5 And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.

1 Peter 4: 17 (KJV)
17 For
the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

Revelation 1: 10, 11; 22: 21 (KJV)
10 
I was in the Spirit on the Lord's day, and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet,
11 Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last: and,
What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
21 
The [**TRUE**] grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

2 Timothy 1: 15 (KJV)
15 
[*Paul writing unto Timothy...] This thou knowest, that all they which are in Asia be turned away from me; of whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes.
