Is the Half an Hour of Silence in the Seventh Seal Judgment in Revelation 8:1 a Literal Time Frame or a Period of Time?

Welcome to Prophecy Q & A with Jimmy DeYoung!

I believe that when we study Revelation that we must take it literally unless it seems to be a symbol that would be making it apocalyptic literature. Then, we would have to have an interpretation of the half hour. I don’t see anywhere else in Scripture where the half hour is defined as anything but half an hour. At this time, one fourth of the Earth will have been killed.

Jimmy DeYoung was a prophecy teacher and journalist who travelled the country and the world educating the Body of Christ of the future events foretold in God’s prophetic Word. His goal was to equip Christians with the knowledge and understanding of what God’s Word says will happen someday soon, so that they can make better decisions today. Dr. DeYoung went home to be with his Savior on August 15, 2021.
