Revelation is written in the order of the feasts. These are the significantactions of God in our salvation. This section of Revelation introduces God inthe Day of Atonement. Now that judgment is about to begin, the sealed wordsmust be opened. A remnant is called to spread this message to the world.Revelation 10 is the history and commission of this remnant.We will postpone the study of Revelation 1 to 9 because they are the history of the church from Christ to the time of the end. Only the last portion of thoseprophecies deal with the time of the end, when the book of Daniel will beunsealed.

Daniel 12Revelation 10
 
(Revelation 10: 8)The angel that appeared at the sealing in Daniel 12 now appears at the opening of the Book in Revelation10 around the time of the end in the year 1844. Notice the similarity between the two events.

Some contents aresealedDaniel 12: 4The bookRevelation 10: 4.Seven thunders
The Angel With the Glory of God
.And I saw another angel come down from heaven clothed witha cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet aspillars of fire.(Revelation 10: 1)This is a description of the throne of God. The angel has the same description of God in Ezekieland the angel who accompanies the Israelites in the exodus. (Exodus 13: 21-22). This angel isGod. He appears to lead us on the last exodus.
A Universal Message (Heaven, Earth and Sea)
."And he had in his hand a little book open: andhe set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth."(Revelation 10: 2)This includes all three containers, heaven, earth and sea. It is also a picture of the universalscope of the throne of God. It is a universal message sent from Heaven, directly from the throneof God by God Himself.
The Seven Thunders
."And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when he cried,seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I wasabout to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, Seal up those things which theseven thunders uttered, and write them not.(Revelation 10: 3)Here we have the sealing of the words of the seven thunders. But Revelation 22: 10 instructsJohn to not seal the prophecies of this book. So at some point in time the thunders should beunderstood. The sealed thunders occur during the seventh trumpet, when the mystery of God isfinished. Perhaps they were sealed because they involve the great Mystery. The thunders will bediscussed in another lesson because they have now been unsealed.
The Oath: No More Delay
.Then the angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land
liftedup his right hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever and ever,
who createdheaven and the things in it, and the earth and the things in it, and the sea and the things in it,that there will be delay (time) no longer.(Revelation 10: 5,6)This is the same action as the angel who sealed the book. He appears when the first cycle of shattering was completed after the 1260 years ended in 1798. This was when the book of Danielwas opened."Then I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when
he held uphis right hand and his left hand to heaven, and swore by Him who lives forever,
that it shall
 
be for a time, times, and half a time; and when the power of the holy people has beencompletely shattered, all these things shall be finished."(Daniel 12: 7)Now the angel in Revelation 10 is saying that prophetic time is no more. The 1260 years hadended and it is now time to unseal the book. If there is no more prophetic time, then all timelines that begin after this point must be real time.
Time, Times and Half a TimeHoly People ShatteredTime no longer (Time of the end)Book SealedBook OpenedSeventh Trumpet
The Seventh Trumpet.
 but in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he is about tosound, then the mystery of God is finished, as He preached to His servants the prophets.(Revelation 10: 7)During the time of the seventh angel the "mystery of God" or the gospel will be finished.Everything that was sealed during the delay is opened when the temple of God is opened.
The People Who Unsealed The Book
.At the sealing of the book, Daniel describes the characteristics of the people who would understand thebook when it opens. So, we should search for a people or movement around this time who are interestedin the book of Daniel.
1.
Time of the End.
They appear at the time of the end when there are no more time prophecies.The 1260 year prophecy ended in 1798. The 2300 day prophecy ended in 1844. The 2520 yearprophecy ended in 1981.
2.
Knowledge Increases.
They appear when knowledge is increased (both religious, prophetic andscientific).
3.
Time Prophecies.
They are a people who were concerned with the time prophecies of Daniel.
4.
Tested.
They are a people who have been purified and tested."Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and noneof the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand."(Daniel 12: 10)In other words, Daniel tells us to look for a people who are tried and tested. Out of that test, they have apurified character and understanding of the book of Daniel. So, it should be no surprise that this is exactlywhat John describes as occurring in Revelation 10: 8-11.
The Testing of The People
.
The Remnant Eat the Book
. "And the voice which I heardfrom heaven spoke to me again, and said, Go and take thelittle book which is open in the hand of the angel whichstands on the sea and on the earth. And I went to theangel, and said to him, Give me the little book. And hesaid to me, Take it, and eat it up: and it shall make yourbelly bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey.And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ateit up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soonas I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.(Revelation 10: 8-10)Two other prophets to the people trapped in ancientBabylon also ate the words of God.
Jeremiah Eats The Words of God
. "Your words werefound, and I did eat them, and your words became for mea joy and the delight of my heart".(Jeremiah 15: 16).Ezekiel also ate words of lamentations and woe and thenhe went to prophesy to Israel.
Ezekiel Eats a Scroll
. Then He said to me, "son of man,eat what you find, eat this scroll and go speak to thehouse of Israel". So I opened my mouth, and He fed me
The Bitter-Sweet DisappointmentThe Historical Fulfillment
Let us go back to the early 1800's and tryto rediscover thehistorical situation.
The Sweet
. All over the world people whostudied independently began preachingabout the Second Coming. In NorthAmerica, William Miller preached aboutthe Second Coming and in his studies of Daniel 8 and 9 concluded that thesanctuary would be cleansed in 1844. Acommon presumption at that time wasthat the earth is the sanctuary - so theyconcluded that the Second Coming wouldbe on Yom Kippur, October 22, 1844.
The Bitter
. A great disappointmentoccurred after these events did not occur.Later, as they studied about the sanctuarythey realized that there is a sanctuary inheaven.
