If I Were Told the Future - Test 37

Silence in Heaven

In order to check your understanding and your progress in the study of the Word of God, we invite you to fill out this short test and return it to us. The correct answers will be sent back to you as soon as possible.

A mark of 70% or better will allow you to submit the test of Lesson 38. Upon the completion of the entire Bible course If I Were Told the Future, you will receive a Certificate of Achievement.


If I Were Told the Future: Test for Lesson 37

  1. At the end of the sixth seal, the unrepentant nations, confronted with the glory of Jesus’ return, try to escape and to hide themselves in the rocks. Filled with fear as they behold this spectacle, they cry:
    «Why does God behave like this?»
    «Is it already the end of the world?»
    «What did we do wrong?»
    «Who shall be able to stand?»

  2. Before describing the seventh and last seal, the book of Revelation answers the nations’ question, asked at the end of the sixth seal. As an answer to that question, the book of Revelation designates the following groups of faithful believers (check off all the right answers):
    «The 144,000.»
    «The twelve apostles.»
    «The great multitude.»
    «The twenty-four elders.»

  3. Then, the book of Revelation reports John’s vision, at the opening of the seventh seal: «And when [the Lamb] had opened the seventh seal, there was in about the space of an Once again, the Word of God will help us to decode the meaning of this seal.

  4. At the time of Jesus’ return, the earth will be the scene of a very noisy spectacle. In the Gospel according to Matthew, Jesus Himself declares: «All the tribes of the earth shall mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with and great . And He shall send His angels with a great of a trumpet.» The silence will thus take place in heaven only.

  5. According to the Word of God, what causes the silence in heaven, at the opening of the seventh seal?
    This is a solemn moment.
    The angels hold their breath.
    Heaven is empty.
    Everyone stands open-mouthed.

  6. The silence in heaven, at the opening of the seventh seal, lasts half an hour. According to the prophetic Word, half an hour symbolizes a period of:
    half an hour, literally.
    a week.
    two weeks.
    a month.

  7. The period symbolized by the prophetic half an hour, in the seventh seal of Revelation, can also be found in another story, which Jesus compares to the Day of His return, in the Gospel according to Matthew. What story is it?
    The Creation of the World.
    The Great Flood.
    The Ten Plagues of Egypt.
    The Red Sea Crossing.

  8. In the story of Noah’s ark and the Flood, reported in the book of Genesis, which of the following lasted one week?
    The time of Noah’s preaching.
    The time for building the ark.
    The waiting time in the closed ark, before the Flood.
    The length of the rain.

  9. Just like in the days of Noah, God will soon put an end to His offer of salvation. Jesus will then stop making intercession for the sinners, and will return to gather His people. During His trip from heaven to earth (the week of the seventh seal), it will be too late to repent and accept salvation. In the book of Revelation, Jesus Himself confirms that the time of grace will come to an end, and that He will declare on that Day, «He that is unjust, let him be still: and he which is filthy, let him be still: and he that is righteous, let him be still: and he that is holy, let him be still.»

  10. Finally, as we are waiting for Jesus’ return, let’s remember the words of the apostle Peter, in his Second Epistle, «But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved to against the Day of judgment and perdition of men. (...) Nevertheless we, according to His promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwells Let’s prepare ourselves for this great and wonderful Day!
