I was certain that we would be able to cover two chapters last Sunday night. I was wrong. That means there will be no new questions posted this week but you can find the questions for chapter 11 here.

Although this angel is like (10:1, “another“ of the same kind) the seven trumpet angels, he is different in a significant way. What indicates that this angel is Christ (compare with 11:3 and remember that the world angel means messenger)? See also Daniel 10:6 and the description of Christ in Revelation 1.

Revelation 7:9-17. The previous references refers to those who believe

The description of this angel corresponds very closely to the description of Christ in Revelation 1 as well as visions of Christ in Daniel and of God’s glory in Ezekiel.

The eating of the little book refers back to Ezekiel 2:9-10. What type of message is likely in the scroll considering both Ezekiel and the context of Revelation?

This is likely a message of judgment.

What concept is in the sealing of the things which the seven thunders spoke (by the way, these things were not written down)? See also Daniel 8:26 and 12. What two things are assured symbolically and literally by sealing?

Sealing speaks of certainty that something will happen or will come to pass, it cannot be altered because of the authority behind the seal. In this particular case, there is the added fact that the things spoken by the thunders are not yet revealed.

What seems to be the purpose of chapter 10 according to verses 5-7?

Again there is an emphasis on these things being the final judgment on evil men. This judgment is also known as the Day of the LORD.

What, in the context of what we know already about the message of the Revelation, is the likely meaning of the book being bitter in John’s stomach but sweet in his mouth?

For the believers (especially the persecuted ones mostly in view in the book of Revelation), God’s vengeance on the wicked has a sweetness to it but it has the added terror to it of understanding the awesomeness of God’s judgment.

When have we earlier seen many tribes, peoples, etc. in this book (We see them again in 11:9)?

Revelaton 7:9-17 – In this instance, it is referring to those who believe and this group will be mentioned again but these phrases are also used in Revelation to speak of unbelieving men and women throughout the world.
