The Greatest Story Ever Told About
The Greatest Man That Ever Lived
                                                                  CHAPTER 10

Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow
above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars.  He was holding a little
scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land,  and
he gave a loud shout like the roar of a lion. When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke.  
And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven say, “Seal up
what the seven thunders have said and do not write it down.”

Then the angel I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven.  And he
swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and
all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it, and said, “There will be no more delay!  But in the days
when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as
he announced to his servants the prophets.”

Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me once more: “Go, take the scroll that lies open
in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.”  So I went to the angel and asked
him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, “Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but ‘in
your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.”  I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. It
tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour.  Then I was
told, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings.”

There is not much that can be said about this event because even God does not want us to know
what this angel said.  When he says
“let there be no more delay” we will see when we discuss the
7th trumpet in Chapter 11 what mystery he is talking about.
