A mighty strong angel appeareth with a book open in his hand.
Revelation 10:1 And I saw another mighty Angel come down from heauen, clothed with a cloud, and a rainebow [was] vpon his head, and his face [was] as it were the Sunne, and his feet as pillars of fire. Revelation 10:2 And hee had in his hand a little booke open: and hee set his right foote vpon the sea, and his left foote on the earth, Revelation 10:3 And cryed with a loude voice, as when a Lion roareth: and when hee had cried, seuen thunders vttered their voices. Revelation 10:4 And when the seuen thunders had vttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heauen, saying vnto mee, Seale vp those things which the seuen thunders vttered, and write them not. Revelation 10:5 And the Angel which I saw stand vpon the sea, and vpon the earth, lifted vp his hand to heauen,
He sweareth by him that liveth for ever, that there shall be no more time.
Revelation 10:6 And sware by him that liueth for euer and euer, who created heauen, 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 bee time no longer. Revelation 10:7 But in the dayes of the voice of the seuenth Angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mysterie of God should be finished, as hee hath declared to his seruants the Prophets. Revelation 10:8 And the voice which I heard from heauen spake vnto me againe, and said, Go, and take the litle booke which is open in the hand of the Angel which standeth vpon the sea, and vpon the earth.
John is commanded to take and eat the book.
Revelation 10:9 And I went vnto the Angel, and said vnto him, Giue me the little booke. And he sayd vnto me, Take it, and eat it vp, and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall bee in thy mouth sweete as hony. Revelation 10:10 And I tooke the little booke out of the Angels hand, and ate it vp, and it was in my mouth sweet as honie: and as soone as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. Revelation 10:11 And he sayd vnto me, Thou must prophesie againe before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
