f. 28v, The angel standing upon the land and the sea (Revelation 10: 1-7)

John is portrayed again sitting at his desk in the left corner of the painting. A heavenly messenger orders him to keep the words uttered by the seven thunderbolts sealed until the seventh trumpet sounds. His presence on this page also balances the composition.
