Revelation 10 pt 1

Having gone through the horrors of Revelation 8 and 9, we finally get to the welcome shores of chapter ten.

Revelation 10:1  ‘Then I saw another mighty angel, coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars.’

Theologians duel with flintlocks at the break of dawn as regards the identity of this angel. 

Some will argue that this angel sounds like Jesus himself and certainly some of the descriptions correspond with that of Revelation chapter one.

Others are not so convinced and assert that he is a mighty angel and no more.

Revelation 10:2  ‘He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, and he gave a loud shout like the roar of a lion.’

Whoever he is, he certainly represents universal power and dominion and this comes as a sweet reassurance after the traumatic and disturbing verses of chapters eight and nine. 

The Lord rules over everything.

Psalm 24:1 The earth is the Lord’s and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.’

Thank goodness!

Tomorrow, the voice of the seven thunders speak?

  • Revelation 11 pt 4
    The different expressions for the same period of time would also show that they are actual measurements of time that are not to be spiritualised into something of our own making. This period of time will actually happen. It will be the final three-and-a-half years before Christ Jesus returns in power and glory!
  • Revelation 11 pt 3
    The building of the Third Temple and the beginning of the daily sacrifice will bring such joy to many of the people of Israel. The treachery of the end-time beast and his desecration of the temple will be the final straw that will weaken the pride of Israel and prepare them in brokenness to receive Christ Jesus as their Messiah when he returns in power and glory. 
  • Revelation 11 pt 2
    A Third Temple must be built and the sacrifices and grain offerings to commence, so that the end-time beast can arise, bring a halt to the daily sacrifice and desecrate the temple in order to fulfil prophecies of both Jesus and Daniel.
  • Revelation 11 pt 1
    There has always been a great expectation that a Third Temple will be built although there are clear challenges to hurdle, not least the opposition of other world religions that hold political control over the Temple Mount. Political wrestling goes on regarding the future development of the Temple and the will and expectation grows more acutely with every passing year. 
  • A Prayer For Afghanistan
    May a spirit of praise and worship be lifted up amongst the hearts of Christians in Afghanistan, even though the praise may need to be covert and sung under their breath, may it be joyous and contagious.
