Revelation 8:1-4 (KJV) Earnest Christians Ought to Pray

Revelation 8:1-4 (KJV)
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.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.And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
Perhaps more than any other part of the book of the Revelation the seven trumpet judgments represent the terrible judgment of God in the Tribulation. I do not want to seem dogmatic about this, it is merely a suggestion, but allow me to represent the trumpet judgments as the whole of the Tribulation:
It is preceded with silence in heaven.These are days when it can seem like heaven is silent. Evil men are waxing worse and truly good men are hounded as evil.
It sees heaven urging and then intently hearing the prayers of saintsToday is no time to hold back our prayers. We must pray and we must do so fervently.
And then the trumpet soundsThe first sound of the trumpet, though not reflected in this passage, calls the believers to heaven. All born again Christians are removed from the earth before judgment begins.
The more silent heaven seems right now, the more earnest Christians ought to pray because the closer Christ’s return must surely be.
