“And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.”
King James Version (KJV)

Revelation 10: Concluding thoughts
Therefore; there is no more holding back judgment (See Jeremiah 15:1 for example). The "plumbline" is drawn (Amos 7:7-9).
There is a distinct time frame where God says "enough" and Christ is set free with the righteous angels to procure judgment.
We see in the following chapters that in fact He uses Satan by giving him what he always wanted; control over the entire world.
Geographically; he doesn't gain all the territory; but surely with technology and his minions can enforce his mark worldwide through the 10 nations or regional confederacy that rule with him for "one hour". (Rev. 17:12). It is an interesting sidenote; which I pointed out before about some who fight in the Ezekiel 38 war AGAINST Antichrist. Since one sixth survive it is possible that they did NOT recieve the mark of the Beast and have a chance at surviving into othe Millenium. In Isaiah 49:23 we see kings and queens being "nursing fathers" and mothers as it were (part of that obviously symbolic). In Jeremiah 31:16-17 we see further confirmation of this. This isn't the main point of the passage; but it shows how God may use captivity and even kidnapping to ultimately preserve the lives of children into the Millennium; the alternative being killed in Israel by Antichrist.
We need to see several larger themes here. God is using all this so that FINALLY as Christ is returning the nation will repent; and that in weeping. (see Zechariah 12:12). It seems hard to believe that the nations get it in regard to Christ and God in the sixth seal; and Israel remains blind that long. Romans 11:25 sheds some light on this; in regard to the "fullness of the Gentiles" which could be indicative of the Church Age ending; complete with the Rapture/Resurrections discussed previously.
Altogether; He uses Satan's own planning to draw men to the snare and trap of Armageddon where things come to a swift conclusion. No more delay can occur or no flesh would live (Matt. 24:22
Jesse's comment on 2021-08-25 14:22:19:
This would be the apostle John. If you start at verse 8, John says and the voice which I heard from heaven (Taken to be God) spoke unto me (John) again, and said, go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel.
It is interesting that even the voice from heaven says that this mighty angel is an angel, the one who is standing upon the sea and upon the earth. And then reading through verses 9 through 11, we see that John was told in verse 4 not to write down, and now he's told to start prophesying again.
As far as this book goes, we see the same book in Ezekiel Chapters 2 and 3. This book is the title deed to the earth. But it is also the word of God. And so John is told to take it and eat it. The word of God is sweet to the taste. But the judgments are hard on the heart and bitter to the belly.
On a side note, I think it is interesting also that it was always God's intention that God's people eat His word, that the word of God becomes our spiritual food, and that the word of God becomes part of us, that we speak not just from out of the book, but out of our heart.
We're told to devour it first, not just memorize it and learn it with our minds, but to receive it spiritually and devour it as the word of God. That's always the way it was intended to be. But you see, we've gotten too head-minded, too intellectual, and not spiritual in our approach to the things of Christ. So this angel said prophesy again. And you will do so in front of many people.
I hope this helps you!

What does the little book represent that the angel has? And who takes it and eats it?

What two things do the seven churches in rev 2 and three have in common ?
Pedro's comment on 2021-05-25 21:51:48:
Jesus was a Hebrew. The 1st man to be called Hebrew was Abram (Genesis 14:13)
Jesus was Semitic (Shem), with color and tone similar to their Arab cousins
Today's Jews are Ashkenazi (Genesis 10:2-3) they are 7th century Khazar converts of Japheth. (Revelation 2:9)
(Genesis 9:27) God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.
Sounds like Canaan will be a slave to his two brothers (Isaiah 14:1-2)
Bro Barney's comment on 2021-05-25 21:43:58:
Jesus IS Jewish. At the time of His presence on the earth, the average Jewish man in Israel could be described as having black hair, olive skin, and shorter than the average American today. He did not stand out of the crowd and would have been considered very common.
Isa 53:2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
Of course He looks different today.
Rev 1:13-15 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
S Spencer's comment on 2021-05-25 16:51:48:
Jesus was Jewish.when he walked down here.
HERE'S JESUS TALKING TO THE SAMARITAN WOMAN AT THE WELL.
John 4:22. Ye worship ye know not what: "WE" know what "WE" worship: for salvation is of the Jews.
S Spencer's comment on 2021-05-25 16:42:23:
It's such a sad movement, and I agree a bad motive.
Adam's comment on 2021-05-25 16:14:01:
Jesus was a middle eastern Jew who walked a lot outside in the sun. Some groups WANT Jesus to be a different skin color though and work very hard to find verses that support their desired skin tone. I don't believe the motivations behind this are sound and I think if Jesus was here in front of us He would condemn that and question their motives. It's as if people are fighting over this trying to score points for their own 'team'. That's opposite of what Jesus taught. Galatians 3:28 God bless...

What ethnicity is Jesus
Earl Bowman's comment on 2021-05-24 13:27:02:
Brother Judge, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.
Revelation 22:10 And he saith unto me, SEAL NOT the prophecy of this BOOK: for the TIME IS AT HAND.
These words were written 2000 years and THE ANGEL said; the time is at hand, to me that means NOW, not 2000 or more years down the road. Otherwise; the book would have been seal to a latter date as in Daniel's time.
The BOOK is the REVELATION OF JESUS; everything that happened to him and all that was accomplished by HIS DEATH AND RESURRECTION.
HIS WORKS that has set us FREE by becoming one with him.
Judge Martin's comment on 2021-05-24 07:56:32:
We are never going to see eye to eye if we both use the same scriptures to interpret different meaning.
The 5-6-7 trumpet scriptures I use are in conjunction with prophetic end-time events, not the idle past. You are reaching too far back for the scriptures to be helpfully relevant to our time. Saying the OT saints were raised up to fill the shoes of the sealed tribes defies logic. How can the one hundred forty four thousand possibly be OT saints when the firstfruits resurrection isn't for another 42 months, when antichrist is defeated at the seventh trumpet? If this were the case, the OT saints would have to die twice, and be resurrected twice.
The one hundred forty four thousand are extraordinary people that live amongst us.
Earl Bowman's comment on 2021-05-24 06:56:38:
Brother Judge, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.
Revelation 6:12 And I beheld when he had open the SIXTH SEAL, and , lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon turned to blood;
This was fulfilled at CHRIST death and resurrection. This prophecy is in:
Joel 2:3 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, BEFORE the great and terrible DAY OF THE LORD COME.
The one hundred forty four thousand in Revelation 7 are the Old Testament saints that were raised with Christ at his resurrection.
Matthew 27:52 And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints WHICH SLEPT AROSE,
Matthew 27:53 And came out of the graves after HIS RESURRECTION, and went into the HOLY CITY (New Jerusalem) and appeared to many.
These Old Testament saints all died in FAITH; but, was never able to receive the promise of eternal life until Christ resurrection. This is shown in:
Hebrews 11:39 And all these, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise (eternal life).
Hebrews 11:40 God having provided some BETTER THING FOR US (eternal life), that THEY without US should not BE MADE PERFECT (accomplished by the death and resurrection of Christ).
YES, thy along with John and all other saints now IN CHRIST are MINISTERING SPIRITS; to us, HERE and NOW.
Hebrews 1:14 Are they not all ministering spirits, SENT FORTH to minister FOR THEM WHO SHALL BE HEIRS OF SALVATION.
This is the role of ALL IN CHRIST at the time they are GLORIFIED.
Judge Martin's comment on 2021-05-23 23:36:20:
The two witnesses are the one hundred forty four thousand sealed from BOTH houses of Israel. They are briefly mentioned, clocked, hidden, and allegorized throughout the Bible, and showcased in Revelation:
The two witnesses (one hundred forty four thousand) are the only representatives of God who are sealed for 42 months. They are the woman of Revelation 12, etc. Now that you know, double check it for reproof.
Judge Martin's comment on 2021-05-23 22:57:38:
John has no need to prophesy after leaving his body of flesh, which occurs at the seventh trumpet for the elect, when God's mystery is over. It is the resurrected one hundred forty thousand standing on Mount Zion with Jesus Messiah (Revelation 14:1).
It is the one hundred forty four thousand who are tasked in prophesying between the sixth and seventh trumpets. Jesus Christ received a 42 month ministry, and so do the elect (Revelation 7).
Brent's comment on 2021-05-23 22:24:11:
Are we brethren, sir? If so, can you tell me the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost? Unto what were you baptized? Have you received the Holy Ghost?
Earl Bowman's comment on 2021-05-23 18:22:07:
Brother Brent, may CHRIST IN US grace us with His wisdom and His understanding
From Genesis to Malachi we see all the prophecies of the coming CHRIST; the law and prophets are the two witnesses to this event. Daniel 12:11-12 foretell of the forty two month ministry of Christ; forty five days latter Pentecost.
Revelation 10 is telling John that when he leaves his body of flesh and is become the LIKENESS OF CHRIST he will again prophecy to the nation having BECOME a Priest to HIS GOD.
Brent's comment on 2021-05-23 11:25:40:
Amen. John is one of the two witnesses.
Chris's comment on 2020-04-19 02:32:02:
Further to Jesse's comment: we don't have specifics on Apostle John's further ministry (v11). We understand from tradition (& not confirmed), that after he was sentenced to the mines on the Isle of Patmos, at which time he received these prophecies described in the Book of Revelation, he was then freed & left there to serve as Bishop of Edessa, in what is today Turkey. He then died an old man - the only apostle to die peacefully. So we don't have details of his ministry, post Patmos, though according to the angel's directive, John's ministry must have been extensive as he may have built upon Apostle Paul's earlier ministry there.
Jesse's comment on 2020-04-18 20:20:34:
Rev. 10:8-11 is where John was given instruction concerning this little book. We see this same book in Ezekiel Chapters 2 and 3. This book is the title deed to the earth. But it is also the word of God. He's told to take it and eat it. The word of God is sweet to the taste. But the judgments are hard on the heart, and bitter to the belly.
It was always God's intention that God's people eat His word, that the word of God becomes our spiritual food, and that the word of God becomes part of us, and that we speak not just from out of the book, but out of our heart.
We're told to devour it first, not just memorize it or learn it with our mind, but to receive it spiritually, and devour it as the word of God. That's always the way it was intended to be.
So he said prophesy again, and he said you will do so in front of many people. To prophesy means to speak forth the written word of God that He has given to us, nothing added, nothing taken away. In other words, no new prophecy!
