SCRIPTURE UNDERSTANDING :
REVELATION 10: 1And I saw another powerful Angel coming down from the Heaven, dressed in a cloud, and a rainbow was around His head, and His face was shining brightly like the sun, and His legs were like columns of fire 2and He had in His hand a little open book.
THE SAME UNFINISHED SCRIPTURE THAT DANIEL WAS WRITING (AND TOLD TO SEAL UP).
And He placed His right foot on the sea and His left foot on the land, 3and shouted with a loud voice (just like a lion roaring). And when He shouted out, seven thunders bellowed out their sounds.
PSALM 29 SAYS THAT THE VOICE OF YAHUAH IS (1) LIKE THUNDER OVER THE GREAT OCEAN, (2) POWERFUL, (3) REVEALS HIS ESTEEM, (4) SHATTERS THE GREAT CEDAR TREES, (5) CUTS THE AIR WITH FLASHES OF LIGHTNING, (6) SHAKES THE DESERT, (7) FRIGHTENS THE DEER AND DESTROYS THE FORESTS.
4And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write down what they said, but I heard a voice from the Heaven say to me, “Seal up what the seven thunders spoke, and don't write them down.” (WHAT DID THEY SAY?)
5And the Angel who I saw standing on the sea and on the land, lifted up His right hand (AUTHORITY) to the Heaven, 6and swore by Him Who lives forever and ever, Who created the Heavens, the earth and the sea (and what's in them) … that there won’t be any further delay, 7but in the days of the sounding of the 7th Angel’s Trumpet (when he's about to blast it), the Secret of Yahuah will also be ended, as He spoke to His servants the prophets.
WHAT HAS YAHUAH ALWAYS WANTED (SPOKEN TO HIS PROPHETS ABOUT & PROMISED) EVER SINCE THE GARDEN OF EDEN? A CONCEPT SO SPECTACULAR AND DANGEROUS THAT HE'S HAD TO KEEP IT A SECRET FOR MOST OF HUMAN HISTORY ?
8And the voice which I heard out of the Heaven spoke to me again saying,“Go, take the little book which is opened in the hand of the Angel standing on the sea and on the earth.” 9And I went to the Angel and said to Him, “Give me the little book.” And He said to me, “Here, take it and eat it, and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.”
10And I took the little book out of the Angel’s hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter. 11And He said to me, “You have to prophesy again now concerning many peoples and nations and tongues and sovereigns.”
RIGHT HERE JOHN IS GIVEN THE TASK OF FINISHING THE SCRIPTURE AND AS SOON AS HE EATS THE LITTLE BOOK, HE PICKS UP DANIEL'S SAME COSMIC STYLE OF LANGUAGE (DRAGONS, WHORES, BEASTS ETC). THEN SOMETHING STRANGE HAPPENS, AS YAHUSHA SAYS THERE WILL BE NO MORE DELAY AND FROM THE SOUNDING OF THE 7th TRUMPET (THE REST OF REVELATION) ...
The Secret of Yahuah will be finished!
AND OF COURSE IT’S US - HIS LIVING TEMPLES - HIM COMING SO CLOSE AND DWELLING INSIDE HIS PEOPLE AFTER DIVINELY OPERATING ON THEIR HEARTS AND CHANGING THEM.
REV 10 FINISHES WITH YAHUSHA TELLING JOHN TO `EAT THE LITTLE OPEN BOOK'. MOST PROPHETS WERE TOLD TO DO AMAZING, BIZARRE THINGS TO `ACT OUT' OR `BEHAVE' THE MESSAGE OF A CERTAIN FUTURE PROPHESY, BUT THIS ONE IS ALL ABOUT EATING YAHUAH'S LIVING WORD:
- Moses said that mankind should not live by bread alone but by
every word that comes from Yahuah’s mouth.
- Jeremiah was told to eat the scroll of Yahuah’s Word and it was
a joy to his heart.
- Ezekiel was told to eat the scroll of Yahuah's Word and it was
sweet in his mouth but bitter in his belly.
- Job said that the words from Yahuah’s mouth are more important
- Yahusha said that His Words are Spirit and Life.
- Paul said that Yahuah’s Word is our spiritual meat and drink.
- John is likewise commanded to eat this little book and continue
prophesying right here in this vision between the 6th and 7th
Why is Yahuah’s Word (the only book we are to ingest) bitter to the stomach and sweet to the taste?

For those who have a new life (heart/spirit) the truth of Yahusha found in His Word is such wonderful knowledge and relief to us … we want more and more, it’s so very sweet to taste, even to talk about, isn’t it? We feel His forgiveness and love, our sins are washed away and we are free, walking and dancing in His presence.
Then Yahusha begins to draw closer to us and train us, and His judgment against our fleshly habits and desires moves front and centre JUDGMENT BEGINS IN THE BRIDE - He separates us and people persecute and hate. So for us who have ‘eaten the little book’ (which is sweeter than honey to the mouth) - when the reality of Yahusha's Word is 'worked out' and ACTIVATED in our practical everyday lives, the bitterness can starts to seep in if we're not carefully wearing our armour and checking our thoughts ... because the Spirit is willing but the flesh is weak, so there’s a real battle going on.
Those feeding on the OPEN BOOK OF SCRIPTURE have a choice: SWEETNESS OR BITTERNESS??
We can be in victory over sin, sickness, death and demon-influence and taste the rivers of living joy from Yahusha … or we can cling to our `old inner man’ with all it's fleshly insatiable desires and remain miserable and bitter. Unless we pick up our stake and follow Yahusha, puting to death our members, we will never taste the intoxicating SWEETNESS of constant exposure to His loving Throne, which is only available through overcoming the flesh-life. Then we will be found unwise and stuck in the endless cycle of judgment and misery.
CHOOSE LIFE ... CHOOSE SWEETNESS !!
