Book Of Revelation Chapter #10
The theme of chapter 10 is the events between the 6th and the 7th Trumpets, the Mighty Angel and the “Little Book.”
“And I (John) saw another Mighty Angel come down from Heaven clothed with a cloud: And a rainbow was upon His head, and His face was like unto the sun, and His feet were as pillars of fire.” “And He had in His hand a ‘Little Book’ that was open, and He sat His right foot upon the Sea and His left foot upon the Earth.” “And He cried with a loud voice, as when a Lion roars, and when He had spoken, Seven Thunders uttered their voices.” “After the Seven Thunders had uttered Their voices, I was about to write when I heard a Voice from Heaven saying to me, seal up those things which the 7 Thunders spoke and do not write them.” “And the Angel I saw standing upon the Earth and the Sea lifted up His hand to Heaven.” “And swore by Him that lives forever and ever who created Heaven and the things that are therein. And the Sea and the things that are therein, that they should be no longer.” “But in the days of the Voice of the 7th Angel, when He shall begin to speak, the mystery of God shall be shown, as He has declaired to His Servants the Prophets.” “And the Voice that I had heard from Heaven spoke to me again, and said, go and take the Little Book which is open in the hand of the Angel which stands upon the Sea and upon the Earth.” “And I went up to the Angel and said unto Him, give me the Little Book. And He said unto me, take it and eat it; and it shall make your belly bitter, but in your mouth it shall be as sweet as honey.” “And I took the Little Book out of the Angels hand and ate it. And in my mouth it was as sweet as honey. But as soon as I had eaten it, it was bitter in my belly.” “And the Angel said unto me, you must Prophesy (preach) again before many people and Nations and Languages and Kings.”
Here in Chapter #10 in the space between the 6th and the 7th Trumpet 3 Personalities are introduce to us. Here in Chapter #10 the first of the 3, which is the mighty Angel with the Little Book is introduced to us. Then in the first 14 verses of Chapter #11 the other two will be introduced to us. This ‘Little Book’ is the Book of the 7 Seals. This Book is the Title, the Deed Book, to the Earth. By chance did you notice that this ‘Little Book’ was transferred from the Hands of God The Father to God The Son who then opened it by the breaking of its 7 Seals? Then, the Book was given to the Mighty Angel who had one foot in the Sea and one foot upon the Earth who then claimed all things for God their Creator! Friends, no matter who we are, no matter how powerful or important we think we are, we as Humans, we own nothing in this life! If any of us are doubting these things which are being written by the Hand of God’s Holy Spirit through His Apostle John please pay attention now. Please lend an ear, and open your eyes and heart so that you/we may obtain a better understanding of what the Truth is.
If a person truly owns something, for example, land, a house, a car, bank account of jewelry, then no one can legally take it from us, correct? When we purchase something we paid for it, we paid our taxes on it and we received a Title or a Deed from the purchase, it’s ours, correct? No friends, that is not correct. If a person legally owns something then it can not be legally taken away from them at least that is the assumption that we are taught to be the truth, at least it is here in the States. At the very least we the people are being deceived by government propaganda. For the purpose of examples let us use our car and our home that we spent years laboring to pay for. We have the titles, we have the Deed, it is ours, our name is upon them as ‘the owner’ and they are tucked away in our safety deposit box at the place that we bank, so they are secure, they are ours, right? Unfortunately, no.
Here is the example I will use for you. Each year the City, County, State and Federal Governments continue to demand more and more tax revenue from the people who live under their authority. Be it a personal property tax, an income tax, or even ‘owed’ Social Security taxes or any other various levels of tax that is laid upon the people by the various ‘Taxing Authorities’, we never ever quit owing these government entities. Here in the U.S. our Country’s Founding Fathers wrote a Constitution making such taxes illegal. But, these career politicians of these past two hundred years have circumvented Our Constitution making it almost completely of no effect. They have done this so that they are the ones with all of the power and money and not the people. Friends, things are only going to get much worse as the Clock of Time continues to wind down. Now, back to the Ownership subject matter. If we as a people decide not to pay Personal Property taxes because we feel that we paid the taxes on ‘our property’ when we bought it, what will happen to us? The only debate will be which government agency will take ‘our property’ and whom will put us in prison first. Folks, it is a reality that the Government owns absolutely everything right down to the clothes on our back and the gold or silver in our mouth. Reality is, the politicians have made it totally ‘legal’ for them to do these things to us, we the people. Folks, we are only renting our possessions from the governments. It is the governments of the world that own every material thing. For it is they who can take our life and everything that we ‘own’. The only thing that they can not take from a person is their Soul. But, if a person desires the material things above all else to where we make ‘things’ our God, then they can win our Soul also.
In the Book of Leviticus 25: 23 Moses wrote the following instructions to the people of Israel concerning the land at God’s instruction. “The land shall not be sold for ever: for the land is mine; for you are strangers and sojourners in it with Me.” If you will remember, after our Lord Jesus was baptized and received again His Holy Spirit our Lord went into the wilderness. For 40 days He was tempted by the Devil Himself. Among the temptations the Devil tempted our Lord Jesus (Yeshua) with you can find in the Gospel of Mark 4: 5-8, please consider what is written here. “And the Devil, taking Him (Jesus) up into a high mountain, showed Him all the Kingdoms of the world in a moment of time.” “And the Devil said to Him (Jesus), all this power will I give you, and the glory of them. For they are delivered unto me and to whosoever I will give it.” “If you will therefore bow down and worship me, all shall be yours.” “And Jesus answered and said unto him, get Thee behind me Satan, for it is written, thou shall worship the Lord thy God and Him alone shall you serve.” Please now consider this reality, the Kingdoms (Governments) of the world belong/ed to Satan and He gave the Power and the glory (riches) of them to whomsoever He (Satan) pleased/chose to. Also please consider that if He did not rule/own them, how could He (Satan) give them to Jesus or to anyone else?
Did you notice what the Devils price tag was for Him to give up His power over the Nations? God the Son bowing down and worshiping the Devil! You see that is something that the Devil has always wanted, to be worshiped as God, in other words, Total Submission to Him! Friends, this battle is still true unto this very day and it will be until Armageddon. Just as we humans through our lack of knowledge and ego’s think we own material possessions, but we do not, at best, we are renting them within the Devils system of things. So, the Devil claims all the world’s riches and their governments to be His, and they are, but it is only a temporary thing and He knows it and He is furious about it. The real fact is that all things were created by God, for God and all things belong to God. You nor I nor Kings or Presidents or the Devil Himself truly hold the deed to the Earth, God does. The Devil knows this and it is something we humans need to fully understand, we own nothing, simply put the Devil and His governments claim it. But they are only temporary folks, they shall pass away into the Pit of Hell along with all the people who worship the material things of this life. Friends this world will follow the Demons into the Pit of the Earth and I just pray that none of us ever see the place.
Do not be dismayed at these words nor be distraught by them. The Light that is God is only a prayer away. We either serve God or we serve money, no one can really serve both. The Kingdoms of this world will become the Kingdoms or our Lord Jesus Christ (Yeshua) through His judgement as the Creator and the Redeemer of this world. The whole Earth belongs to Him, we are told by the Apostle Paul in the Book of Romans 9: 28 “For He (Jesus) will finish the work and cut it short in righteousness: because a short work will the Lord make upon the Earth.” The Prophet Daniel labeled this the Tribulation period as 7 years.
In the Lord’s Olivet Discourse in the Gospel of Matthew 24: 22 it is written “And except those days should be shortened no flesh would be saved: but for the Elects sake those days shall be shortened.” The Angel is telling the Elect, the believers and follower’s of God “don’t worry, he that endures to the end, the same shall be saved.” Friends, I close this letter to you this evening with the following thoughts. The Apostle John believed that all the Nations, Peoples, Languages and Colors needed to hear and to understand the Word Of God. All people, then and now need to be warned that Judgement is coming to/for all of us. There will be millions of people who will go into the Tribulation Period and it will seem like a thousand years long to them, this period will be literally like a Hell on Earth. We only think that the evil we see now is horrible but as the old saying goes, we ain’t seen nothing yet. The Book of Revelation is 22 chapters long so we are almost half way through this Book of Prophesy. Prophesy about and against the people and the Nations of this System of things is necessary, for reality is that there is a Judgement to come for all of us. Folks, if we will study this Book of Prophesy it will have a definite effect upon our life! Either it will help bring us closer to our Creator, or it will drive us further from Him.
