LESSON #30
THE MIGHTY ANGEL – REV 10

  • MEMORY VERSE: REV 10:2
  • REVIEW: AT THE MIDDLE OF THE TRIBULATION PERIOD:
    • THE ANTI-CHRIST BREAKS THE PEACE TREATY AND TURNS ON THE JEWS.
    • SATAN IS CAST OUT OF HEAVEN TO THE EARTH TO INDWELL THE ANTI-CHRIST.
  • REVELATION 10 IS A PARENTHESIS IN THE ROUND OF JUDGMENTS AT THE MIDDLE OF THE TRIBULATION PERIOD. IT OCCURS IN HEAVEN.
  • READ REV 10:1-11 THE MIGHTY ANGEL
    • WHO IS THE MIGHTY ANGEL AND HOW DO WE KNOW?
      • THE IDENTITY OF THE ANGEL HAS SEVERAL INTERPRETATIONS:.
        • =1= IT IS POSSIBLE THIS IS AN ORDINARY ANGEL.
        • =2= IT IS POSSIBLE THIS ANGEL IS GABRIEL FOR HIS NAME MEANS = STRENGTH OF GOD.
        • =3= IT IS POSSIBLE THIS ANGEL IS MICHAEL FOR HIS NAME MEANS = WHO IS LIKE GOD.
        • =4= IT IS POSSIBLE HE IS THE SAME ANGEL AS IN REV 8:3 THAT ACTED AS A HEAVENLY HIGH PRIEST BRINGING THE PRAYERS OF THE SAINTS TO GOD.
          • IN REV 8 WE CONSIDERED THE POSSIBILITY THAT THIS MIGHT BE CHRIST
        • =5= IT IS POSSIBLE THIS IS JESUS CHRIST. ON WHAT DO WE BASE HIS IDENTITY AS THE LORD?
          • THE DIVINE CHARACTERISTICS CONNECTED WITH THIS ANGEL:
            • HE IS CLOTHED WITH A CLOUD.
              • THIS IS A SYMBOL OF DIVINE PRESENCE. (EXO 40:34-38)
            • THERE IS A RAINBOW ON HIS HEAD.
              • THIS IS THE SAME RAINBOW AS IN REV 4:3 THAT SURROUNDED THE THRONE OF GOD.
                • THE RAINBOW IS A SYMBOL OF MERCY.
            • HIS FACE WAS LIKE THE SUN.
              • THIS IS THE LIGHT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. (REV 1:16)
            • HIS FEET ARE LIKE PILLARS OF FIRE.
              • THIS REPRESENTS JUDGMENT (REV 1:15)
            • THERE IS A SCROLL IN HIS HAND LIKE REV 5:5.
              • REMEMBER THAT THE SCROLL WITH 7 SEALS IN REV 5 REPRESENTED THE TITLE DEED TO EARTH THAT JESUS CHRIST REDEEMED. THIS SCROLL IN REV 10 IS NOW OPEN FOR HE HAS BROKEN THE SEVEN SEALS.
    • THE ANGEL’S RIGHT FOOT IS ON THE SEA AND HIS LEFT FOOT IS ON THE LAND (2).
      • THIS ILLUSTRATES GOD’S SOVEREIGNTY OVER ALL THE EARTH.
        • THE SEA REPRESENTS = THE MASS OF HUMANITY.
        • THE LAND REPRESENTS = WORLD GOVERNMENTS.
    • THE MESSAGE:
      • THE MESSAGE THAT THE ANGEL BRINGS WILL IMPACT THE WHOLE EARTH.
      • JOHN IS TOLD TO SEAL UP WHAT THE VOICE OF GOD SAID IN THE 7 THUNDERS.
      • THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE ANGEL (5-7)
        • THE ANNOUNCEMENT IS BASED ON GOD’S AUTHORITY.
          • HE SWEARS BY GOD WHO CREATED ALL THINGS (HEB 6:13-18)
        • THE ANNOUNCEMENT IS BASED ON GOD’S TIMING.
          • THERE WILL BE NO DELAY IN BRINGING ABOUT THE EVENTS GOD HAS PLACED IN THE LITTLE BOOK.
        • THE ANNOUNCEMENT IS BASED ON GOD’S PROMISE.
          • THE MYSTERY WILL BE FINISHED.
            • WHAT MYSTERY DID GOD DECLARE TO HIS SERVANTS AND THE PROPHETS?
              • GOD’S MYSTERY GOES THROUGH ALL THE BIBLE FROM GEN 3:15 FORWARD. IT IS GOD’S PLAN OF REDEMPTION THROUGH JESUS CHRIST TO ESTABLISH CHRIST’S KINGDOM ON THE EARTH.
    • THE ANGEL’S VOICE:
      • HIS VOICE IS LIKE A LION’S ROAR. (3)
        • THE LION’S ROAR IS READY TO DEVOUR IN JUDGMENT WITH THE WRATH OF CHRIST.
      • THE VOICE OF THE SEVEN THUNDERS = THIS IS THE SEVEN FOLD VOICE OF GOD.
        • REMEMBER THAT THE NUMBER 7 IS THE NUMBER OF COMPLETION OR PERFECTION OF GOD.
        • READ PSA 29:3-9
PSALM 29: SIGNIFICANCE:
1. THE VOICE OF THE LORD IS UPON THE WATERS…THUNDERETH (3) THE LORD SPEAKS TO YOU IN A LOUD VOICE DURING TIMES OF TROUBLE. THE CONDITIONS TO HEAR HIM?
–YOU MUST KNOW HOW TO RECOGNIZE HIS VOICE.
–YOU MUST LISTEN.
2. THE VOICE OF THE LORD IS POWERFUL (4) 2. GOD’S DIRECTION CAN OVERCOME CONFLICTING DIRECTION FROM YOUR OWN SELFISH DESIRES.
3. THE VOICE OF THE LORD IS FULL OF MAJESTY (4) 3. GOD’S DIRECTION IN THE STORM WILL RESULT IN GLORY TO GOD.
4. THE VOICE OF THE LORD BREAKETH THE CEDARS (5) 4. GOD’S DIRECTION IS STRONG ENOUGH TO BREAK THROUGH ANY DIRECTION FROM SATAN.
5. THE VOICE OF THE LORD DIVIDES THE LIGHTNING (7) 5. GOD’S DIRECTION WILL BE OBVIOUS (SPIRITUALLY VISIBLE) TO YOU IF YOU LOOK FOR IT.
6. THE VOICE OF THE LORD SHAKES THE WILDERNESS (8) 6. GOD’S DIRECTION CAN TURN UPSIDE DOWN YOUR SITUATION.
7. THE VOICE OF THE LORD MAKES THE HINDS TO CALVE (9) 7. GOD’S DIRECTION SHOULD CAUSE YOU TO FEAR THE LORD. YOU SHOULD HAVE SUCH AN AWESOME RESPECT FOR THE LORD THAT YOU OBEY HIS DIRECTION.
      • IN THIS PSALM DAVID USES A STORM TO DEPICT GOD’S POWERFUL PRESENCE ON THIS EARTH. IN FACT, EVERY VIOLENT ACT OF NATURE IS REPRESENTED IN THIS PSALM:
        • TIDAL WAVE (3) THUNDER (3) LIGHTNING (5) WHIRLWIND (6) VOLCANIC ERUPTION (7) EARTHQUAKE (8) TORNADO (9) FLOOD (10)
          • GOD IS IN CONTROL OF ALL NATURAL PHENOMENA ON THIS EARTH AND OFTEN SPEAKS THROUGH THESE EVENTS:
            • AS A WARNING
            • AS JUDGMENT
          • THE TRIBULATION PERIOD WILL CONTAIN THESE NATURAL EVENTS. IT WILL BE GOD’S VOICE BRINGING WARNING AND JUDGMENT.
    • THE SEVENTH ANGEL
      • THIS IS THE ANGEL THAT SOUNDED THE SEVENTH TRUMPET
        • CHRISTIANS WHO BELIEVE IN THE RAPTURE AT THE MIDDLE OF THE TRIBULATION BELIEVE THAT THIS IS THE RAPTURE TRUMPET SOUNDING.
    • APPLICATION OF THE ANGEL’S MESSAGE TO JOHN (8-11)
      • JOHN’S STRANGE ACTION RECALLS EZEKIEL’S RESPONSE.
        • READ EZE 2:9-3:3
          • WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF JOHN’S REACTION?
            • THE MESSAGE CONTAINED LAMENTATIONS, MOURNING, AND WOE, BUT IT WAS SWEET TO THE TASTE.
            • EATING THE WORDS = A COMPLETE ASSIMILATION OF THE MESSAGE OF GOD.
              • THE MESSAGE BECOMES A PART OF THE PROPHET WHO BEARS A HEAVY RESPONSIBILITY:
                • THE MESSAGE MUST BE GIVEN TO THE PEOPLE..
                • THE MESSAGE MUST BE ACCURATE
                • THE MESSAGE INVOLVES SUFFERING AND SACRIFICE THAT ARE NECESSARY TO BRING GOD’S MESSAGE.
                  • THE BITTER
                  • GOD’S PEOPLE WILL SUFFER GREATLY IN THE TRIBULATION.
                  • JUDGMENT ON UNBELIEVING HUMAN FLESH WILL NOT BE PLEASANT TO SEE.
                  • THE SWEET
                  • TRUTH IS SWEET.
                  • THE COMING OF OUR LORD AND HIS KINGDOM.
