16. After the sealing work brought to view in Revelation 7, which takes place under the sixth seal, how is the seventh seal introduced?

Answer

"And when He had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour."
Rev. 8: 1.
NOTE-The sixth seal introduced the events connected with the second coming of Christ. The
seventh seal most naturally, therefore, would refer to that event, or to some accompanying result of it.
When Christ comes, all the holy angels will accompany Him (Matt. 25: 31); and it follows that silence will
necessarily, therefore, reign in heaven during their absence. A half hour of prophetic time would be about
seven (lays. The seven seals, therefore, bring us down to the second coming of Christ.
