Revelation 10

Highlight:

Revelation 10:1–4 (NKJV) 

1 I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire. 2 He had a little book open in his hand. And he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, 3 and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars. When he cried out, seven thunders uttered their voices. 4 Now when the seven thunders uttered their voices, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered, and do not write them.” 

Explain:

Revelation 10: 1- A mighty angel comes down from heaven holding a small scroll. He puts one foot on the sea, and another on the land. He shouts with a voice like a lion and is answered by the seven thunders. John is commanded not to write down what the seven thunders say. The angel swears an oath that there will be no more delay. God’s mysterious plan will be fulfilled. John is told to take the scroll from the angel and eat it. It is sweet to his taste, but goes immediately sour on his stomach. He is then told that he must prophesy again about many people, nations, languages, and kings.

Though this chapter has a lot of interpretations, the passage I have highlighted reveals one of its universal themes: Though God reveals many things to us, He does not reveal everything, or, perhaps, even most things. He insists that we trust Him for what He has not revealed.

Apply:

Since God doesn’t reveal everything, I will study and apply what has been revealed.

Since God doesn’t reveal everything, I will trust Him for what He has not revealed.

Respond:

I will look for something that God has not revealed and intentionally trust Him in that today.
