Revelation 10)

1: And I saw another mighty angel (= the Angel of the Lord) come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud (not everyone could see Him): and the rainbow was upon His head (= the Shikinah glory), and His face was as it were the sun, and His feet as pillars of fire:
2: And having in His hand a little book open (Gr. biblaridion. Only here and v.9,10. Cp.1:11 and 5:1, &c., where the scroll was sealed. Here it is opened): and He set His foot upon the sea (over the peoples of the earth, see 17:15), and His left foot over the earth,
3: And cried with a great voice, as when a lion roars (Not a sweet talker as some would lead you to believe. He is the Lion of Judah): and when He cried (i.e. decreed), seven thunders uttered their voices. (i.e. after the fact that Satan is already here. See Luke 10:18. Thunder comes after lightning. The event has already taken place. Too late to prepare for it.)
4: And when the seven thunders uttered their voices (Crash!!!), I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, "seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not." (Why not? see previous verse.)
5: And the Angel which I saw stand over the sea (i.e. people) and over the earth lifted up His hand to heaven (Looking to the Godhead)
6: And swore by Him That lives for ever and ever (you can swear to no higher), Who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and things which are therein, that there should be time no longer (you're about to meet your maker):
7: But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God shall be finished, as He has declared to His servants the prophets. (He's told everything through the prophets. Cp. Mark 3. Your prophets are your witnesses. Have they whispered in your ear. Have you read them with understanding. They are your witnesses. God spoke through them, for Jesus The living Word is the Author and finisher of your faith)
8: And the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again, and said, "Go and take (demands action on your part) the book (the Bible) which is open (not closed or sealed as some would lead you to believe) in the hand of the Angel which stands over the sea (people) and over the earth." (This is prior to the seventh trump)
9: And I went to the Angel and said to Him, "Give me the the Book." And He said to me, "Take it and eat it up (Hebraism for receiving knowledge. Know that you have a part); and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey."
10: And I took the Book out of the Angels hand (action. Cp. 4:11), and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey (a prophet's food); and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter. (People will persecute you for telling the truth. See Mark 13:9-11.)
11: And He said to me, "You must prophecy again before many people, and nations, and kings." (Pentecostal tongue, make no distinction. See Ps. 104:1-6. Acts 2:6,7)
