A mighty strong angel appeareth with a book open in his hand.
Revelation 10:1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head: and his face, as the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire. Revelation 10:2 And he had in his hand a little book, open. And he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot upon the earth. Revelation 10:3 And he cried with a loud voice as when a lion roareth. And when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. Revelation 10:4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write. And I heard a voice from heaven saying to me: Seal up the things which the seven thunders have spoken. And write them not. Revelation 10:5 And the angel whom I saw standing upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven.
He sweareth by him that liveth for ever, that there shall be no more time.
Revelation 10:6 And he swore by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven and the things which are therein, and the earth and the things which are in it, and the sea and the things which are therein: That time shall be no longer. Revelation 10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound the trumpet, the mystery of God shall be finished, as he hath declared by his servants the prophets. Revelation 10:8 And I heard a voice from heaven, again speaking to me and saying: Go and take the book that is open, from the hand of the angel who standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
John is commanded to take and eat the book.
Revelation 10:9 And I went to the angel, saying unto him that he should give me the book. And he said to me: Take the book and eat it up. And it shall make thy belly bitter: but in thy mouth it shall be sweet as honey. Revelation 10:10 And I took the book from the hand of the angel and ate it up: and it was in my mouth, sweet as honey. And when I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. Revelation 10:11 And he said to me: Thou must prophesy again to many nations and peoples and tongues and kings.
