Revelation 10

Revelation Chapter 10

Revelation 10:1-4
The Mighty Angel
(Here we come upon a break from the action of meeting characters)
The 6th trumpet has been blown and we are waiting for the 7th
  • The Mighty Angel or messenger
  • Robed in a cloud
  • Rainbow above God's head signifying mercy and promise (even in God's wrath there is mecy!)
  • In His hands He holds an open book (Not the 7 sealed book, but a little book
  • Right foot in the sea, left foot on the land
  • His the roar of a lion
  • Thunders answer back...(Do you wonder what they say? I do! hmmm, but it is sealed!)
The secret things belong unto the LORD our God: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law. Deuteronomy 29:29

Revelation 10:5-7
TIME is no longer!
  • John is forbidden to write what the 7 thunders spoke
  • Time is no longer! There is no more delay
  • Mystery: Not something we must find out or hidden, but a revealed Old Testament prophecy by Old Testament prophets 
  • Talking about a glorious return of God's Son the Messiah...Jesus Christ! (many are already fulfilled and many more to come)
Revelation 10:8-11
Eat the Book! The Bible!
Not referring to the scroll, for Jesus is the only one worthy to open the scroll)
  • Take and eat the Book (Take the Word of Life, The Bible, so that we may be able to share it with others)
 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.  Ezekiel 3:3 

So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the LORD was strong upon me. Ezekiel 3:14

Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts. Jeremiah 15:16 

Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones. Proverbs 16:24

  • The Word of God is sweet tot he taste, but at times bitter to deliver. 
  • Bitter in the stomach-much wisdom brings much sorrow
For in much wisdom is much grief: and he that increaseth knowledge increaseth sorrow.
Ecclesiastes 1:18

Go ahead be a misfit for Jesus, for the world will look upon one who lives the Word as misfit.
The world loves it's own, and what God has to share is  difficult to swallow. The message of judgment is hard to believe.
  • The Angel says, you are not done John!
  • The book symbolizes God's Word.
Balance life with spiritual food from the Word of God, the Holy Spirit, prayer, fellowship with God's family, sharing God's Word with others.

Blessings, Lady
