Revelation 10

April 3, 2009

Here’s how the study works: Read the chapter mentioned in the heading several times during the week and share any words, thoughts, verses that stood out to you. Having a week for a chapter creates the opportunity to reread it several times and make additional comments as you feel inclined as well as make comments on other people’s insights.

  1. v.1. John saw an angel coming down from heaven but I thought John was in heaven. Interesting… probably fits in with the thought this is not a chronological narrative.

  3. The little scroll is similar to the scroll in relation to Ezekiel's call to be a prophet in Ezekiel chapter 2 & start of chapter 3.

    In v. 11 it reads, you must prophecy again so it seems the business with the scroll is renewing John's call to be a prophet. Ezekiel's scroll didn't turn sour but John's does. Even though Ezekiel's contained words of lament and mourning and woe (Ezekiel 2:9).

  5. 7-“But in the days when the 7th angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.”

    I see in my commentary this secret is God’s triumph over evil. But if you think about the mindset of people today who don’t believe, this must be an extreme mystery to them.

    If our president can’t even define evil, how can he ever recognize the victory over it.? I fear for my country when I read things like this.

  7. I just had an interesting thought about v.7 – the mystery of God is accomplished BEFORE the seventh angel sounds his trumpet, which suggests the seventh trumpet signifies a completion of God’s purposes.

  9. v.6 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!"

    No more delays. Evidently people have been given enough time to repent. Yet Revelation 16:9 & 11 suggests even later people still had the opportunity to repent.

  11. v.4 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.”

    Do not write it down. There are some things that God does not tell us, eg. Job. We are to live by faith.

  13. V.7 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.”

    The “mystery of God” possibly referring to 11:15 where the kingdom of the world become the kingdom of our Lord:

    The seventh angel sounded his trumpet, and there were loud voices in heaven, which said: “The kingdom of the world has become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Messiah, and he will reign for ever and ever.”
