SILENCE IN HEAVEN via the priestly garments?
Revelation 8:1 KJVS
And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
Silence in heaven indicates that Christ’s sound will not be heard!
How many are familiar with the priestly garments worn by the high priest? During the daily ministry of the high priest [ which took place day in and day out throughout the year] it was required of him by God to wear the specified garments described in Exodus chapter 28. Such garment was consists of golden bells beneath the hem of the rob.
Exodus 28:33-34 KJVS
And beneath upon the hem of it thou shalt make pomegranates of blue, and of purple, and of scarlet, round about the hem thereof; and bells of gold between them round about:  A golden bell and a pomegranate, a golden bell and a pomegranate, upon the hem of the robe round about.
The bible describes the PURPOSE of the golden bells that was to be located on the hem of the rob of the priestly garment:
Exodus 28:35 KJVS
And it shall be upon Aaron to minister: and his sound shall be heard when he goeth in unto the holy place before the Lord , and when he cometh out, that he die not.
“his sound shall be heard” all throughout his daily ministry except at the end of the year in the day of atonement.
The golden bells located beneath the rob means every movements of the high priest could be heard day in, day out. It was constant noises when he is approaching the altar of incense, the table of show bread and the menorah; remind you these three articles were located inside the holy place. Those outside cannot see his every moves but could hear it.
Silence in heaven derives from the fact that during the day of atonement the high priest was to change his garments from that described in Exodus chapter 28 which he wore daily to that is described in Leviticus chapter 16 which he wore yearly. The yearly ministry of the high priest has its own set of garments that were to be worn!
Leviticus 16:4 KJVS
He shall put on the holy linen coat, and he shall have the linen breeches upon his flesh, and shall be girded with a linen girdle, and with the linen mitre shall he be attired: these are holy garments; therefore shall he wash his flesh in water, and so put them on.
Upon the high priest wearing the linen garments there was to be silenced; his every moves could not to be heard, unlike the garments which he wears daily. The linen garments which has NO bells produces silence, his SOUND could not be heard. The holy and the most holy place of the tabernacle typifies heaven itself as we read in the book of Hebrews.
Hebrews 9:24 KJVS
For Christ is not entered into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us:
Silence in heaven is a clear indication that the day of atonement is in view!
Leviticus 16:30 KJVS
For on that day shall the priest make an atonement for you, to cleanse you, that ye may be clean from all your sins before the Lord .
