Revelation 10:10 (ESV): 10 And I took the little scroll from the hand of the angel and ate it. It was sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it my stomach was made bitter.
After the 6th trumpet, a mighty angel came down from heaven, standing with one foot on the sea and the other on land. He spoke, but John was forbidden to write the message down.
But this angel held a scroll. John was told to take the scroll and eat it. Then, he was told that he must continue to prophesy about many peoples, nations, languages, and kings.
The Gospel is good news for our world, but because of sin and how people often respond, it can be bitter to us – sweet to speak and to savor, but bitter due to the response of wicked people.
Yet we must be faithful to share the good news that Jesus is King.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the wonderful message that Jesus is King. Help me to share that news with someone today. Amen.
