Revelation 8:1-13

This chapter begins with the opening of the seventh (7) seal of the book (refer to Revelation 5:1-7) in heaven by the little-lamb which is representing the Lord Jesus Christ. This takes place after the 144,000 people were sealed (refer to Revelation 7:4-8). The openings of the previous six (6) seals are recorded in Revelation chapter 6 (also refer to Matthew 24:4-8).

The effects or events occurring as a result of the opening of the seventh seal cover the implementation of judgments under seven trumpets (Revelation 8:7 - 14:20) including seven bowls as part of the seventh trumpet blowing (Revelation 15:1 - 18:24). These occur during the time of the great pressure of the completing together of the age - and will be followed by the Lord Jesus Christ's return on earth as recorded in Revelation chapter 19; also refer to Matthew 24:9-14a and 21, and Acts 2:19 and 20a (referencing Joel 2:30 and 31a).

Revelation 8:1 and 2:
8:1And whenever he opened the seal, the seventh (seal), there became silence in the heaven as half-an-hour; .2and I saw the seven angels who stood2 before God and seven trumpets were given to them.

John writes that at whatever time the little-lamb opened...

...there became silence (quietness, hush, no-one was speaking)...

...and I perceived (knew with my mind)...
