Not a single word was spoken
neither was any music played.
The silence remained unbroken
and no audible sound was made.
All the angels held back their breath
their awesome silence could be heard.
For it was the silence of death
and no one dared to speak a word.
It lasted almost half an hour
this potent silence in heaven
pending the terrible power
of the mighty sealed up seven.
Then heaven’s silence was broken
as the loud trumpets announced
that the seals were to be opened
and the judgment of God pronounced
“In whom ye also trusted,
after that ye heard the word of truth,
the gospel of your salvation:
in whom also after that ye believed,
ye were sealed with that
holy Spirit of promise,
Matthew 16:6 & 12
“Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed
and beware of the leaven
of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.
Then understood they how
that he bade them not beware
of the leaven of bread,
but of the doctrine
of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.”
