A BRIEF INTERMISSION – After this. (Revelation 7:1a)
After the sixth seal, and before discussing the opening of the seventh seal (Revelation 8:1), John pauses to relate two other visions in Revelation 7. These two visions are the sealing of the servants of God (Revelation 7:1–8),(1) and the great multitude before the throne (Revelation 7:9–17). “After this” may mean that this vision follows the vision of the sixth seal, not necessarily that the events described in this vision follow the sixth seal.(2)
Why the pause?
