Revelation 10 Commentary

(10:1-11) The Angel and the Small Scroll - Chapter 10 introduces an interlude between the sixth and seventh trumpets, much as chapter 7 was an interlude between the sixth and seventh seals. This interlude extends from 10:1–11:14. No corresponding interlude exists between the sixth and seventh bowl judgments, for at that time, the end will have come and there will be no time for further warning.As noted earlier, the Scripture does not state whether these events follow in sequence, are cyclical, or are merely intensifying with each set of seven judgments. God has chosen not to explain these visions totally. This book reveals God’s judgment upon evil and his bringing of his own to be with him forever. When and how that all happens is for us to discuss and study in order to be morally and spiritually prepared. Believers should not allow their different beliefs regarding the end times to distract them from the hope in Christ’s return.

Dave Burnette's Life Application

The Everlasting Word of God

Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we Continue in the book of Revelation with Chapter 10 and in today's text we see the purpose of this angel is to announce the final judgements of this Earth. The 7th trumpet will usher in the 7 vial judgements which will bring an end to our present world. In verse 9-11 we see God's Word is sweet to the believers because it brings us encouragement but it sours our stomach because of the coming judgement it pronounces to unbelievers. In making application we see that the Bible that we hold Is A Living Book and and is still around at the end of time on Earth. His Word Truly Lives Forever. Many have tried to destroy the Bible but through the ages this Bible still thrives now and throughout eternity. How about you? Do you value your Bible? Do you read it and cherish it as the Lord does? Let us learn from our text today and the Lord's perspective on the Bible. If we treat it as the Lord does we will read, study, meditate, and cherish it forever more.


Revelation 10

Revelation 10

 1And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:

 2And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,

 3And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.

 4And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.

 5And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

 6And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:

 7But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.

 8And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.

 9And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.

 10And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.

 11And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
