The Mystery of God and the Scroll – Revelation 10 – by Ty Tamasaka

The Mystery of God and the Scroll

“10 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. He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. 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. When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke. And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven say, “Seal up what the seven thunders have said and do not write it down.”

Then the angel I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven. And he swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it, and said, “There will be no more delay! But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.”

Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me once more: “Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.”

So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, “Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but ‘in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.’[y]” 10 I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour. 11 Then I was told, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings.”  Revelation 10

After the sixth trumpet, Revelation 10 occurs.  This chapter comes as an interlude between the sixth and seventh trumpets.  While these interludes serve a dramatic purpose, it also shows God’s mercy as He allows even more opportunity for repentance.  It’s as if God brings creation to the brink of destruction, then pulls back to grant mankind a little more time to repent.

John starts out by telling of a mighty angel he sees coming from Heaven.  Many Bible students think this angel is Jesus, but I don’t think it is based on two reasons.  First, Jesus is not referred to as a mighty angel in the New Testament or in the Book of Revelation (although He is referred to as an Angel of the Lord in the Old Testament) and second, His return here seems to interrupt the flow of the book.

As a result, I think the angel John sees here is an angel of great importance as he has some of Jesus’ characteristics.  It’s possible the angel takes on the characteristics of the Lord because he is in the presence of the Lord.  This would be similar to Moses experience in Exodus 34.  This is a comforting thought because the same is true for us.  If we spend time in the Lord’s presence, we begin to look like Him, sound like Him, and speak like Him more every day.  Whether the angel is Jesus or not, he deliver’s two messages.

1 – The mystery of God will be accomplished.

The angel makes an oath in verse 6-7.

And he swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it, and said, “There will be no more delay! But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.” Revelation 10:6-7 NIV

John’s readers were seeing family members killed for their faith.  They saw friends being beaten and terrible things happening.  They may have wondered, “Where is God?  Why isn’t He doing something?”

Here, they receive the assurance here that there will come a time when all of the questions about all the pain you’ve experienced, will be resolved.  God will finish His plans. He is in control of history.  Take comfort, He will straighten things out.  He will see to it that right triumphs over wrong.

2 – God’s Word must be devoured and digested.

Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me once more: “Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.”

So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, “Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but ‘in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.’[y]” 10 I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour. 11 Then I was told, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings.”  Revelation 10:8-11 NIV

The angel gives John an unusual command.  John takes the book from the angel’s hand and eats it.  John needed to take God’s word in… in its entirety, before he could go out and prophesy again.

The Word of God is our food and we must take it, and digest it before it can do any good.  God has called us to be a people who, like John, will both devour and digest the Scripture.  We must take in both the sweet promises, affirmations, and exhortations as well as the bitterness of the burdens, suffering, and persecution if we, like John, are going to impact our world for the Gospel.

Dear Jesus I understand that in the end, all the mysteries will be resolved.  Empower me Lord that may I not fear or shy away from the parts of the Bible that I don’t understand or don’t like.  Open my eyes and heart to devour and digest Your FULL Word.  In Your awesome name, amen.

One thought on “The Mystery of God and the Scroll – Revelation 10 – by Ty Tamasaka

  1. We have communicated before. I believe that “scroll” or perhaps better interpreted as “Little Book” is also referred to as the Rev 5:1 “backside” of the Book that reveals all the mysteries. That book is the Heaven’s Gate Book and the backside, though I know this can sound blasphemous is the book I wrote and just published, named, “TI and DO The Father and “Jesus” Heaven’s Gate UFO Two Witnesses”. Both are available freely or by purchase and you might find them both very interesting and even as honey in your mouth but hard on the belly. That is because the ideas are so sweet and stimulating and interesting and recognizable as the greatest truths but they also come with an upset stomach when we realize that “standing” up for Ti and Do in this current setting will eventually be met with violence towards those who take that stand as said takes place mostly during the time of the fifth seal opening. We are currently in the start of the 4th seal opening with the “green” horse who is “Trump” with his money power and how his opposition are bent on human caused global warming agenda’s and how the overall time period is the 2nd and LAST Harvest WAVE. The first wave ended with the exit of Do and Crew in 1997 seen by teh world as the Heaven’s Gate “cult of truth”. My book is the backside because scriptures were put in the back of the Heaven’s Gate Book and I continued that by re-translating and re-interpreting almost the entire Book of Revelation.

    Since I was with Ti and Do for 19 years I was able to easily line up certain prophecies in a timeline before and after their public “prophecy period”, followed by Their working with their students on overcoming the human kingdom (world) to graduate into receiving a “celestial body” (as Paul of Tarsus correctly described existed for those who are “harvested” into Heaven.

    It was in the 1990’s (end of the age/millenium), actually in 1992 when they finished the 1st thunder (roar from the Lion of Juda) and began to “sound the last 6 thunders, though they didn’t talk about them that way as they never did try to mimic prophecy timelines or try to jive with prophecy. It’s just so happened that I later, after I left them began to see when I studied scriptures.

    I’m pretty sure that Mighty Angel was the same Soul who had been incarnate in the vehicle named Jesus who was before then the same Older Member Soul who was Micheal the archangel, also the “moon” and “son/offspring” of the woman in Rev 12:1 who his Father births to the Thone task (that He (the Father came back with him incarnate to fulfill as the Two Witnesses).

    With all due respect, it can be very hard to see this but it’s true and my book lays out many, many of the details of why I say this but the most sure way anyone will see it is if they really want to know the truth and they go into their closet and secretly ask our “Father in Heaven” to show us the full truth. It’s in Jesus prophecy in the gospels as well in all the required behaviors and ways for disciples but the Revelation was designed to remain a mystery until this time because otherwise the Luciferian fallen angel souls would have known how to program people to disregard the truth when it comes out, because it was primarily designed for the LAST “Harvest” Wave at this time.

    ————————–
    This “Little Book” provides detailed evidence from everything Jesus prophesied to show how and why those called, TI (Tee) and Do (Doe) were the new incarnations of the Ones referred to as the Father and Jesus, who with Their Crew of Student “Saints,” were on earth again to fulfill the promised return of Their Kingdom during these “End Times,” through Their task recorded as the “Two Witnesses” in the Book of Revelations that was completed when they exited their incarnations in 1997 – seen in the world’s news as Heaven’s Gate.

    Here is a tiny bit of the evidence of Their return that will be covered in these next pages in great detail, examining most every verse from the Book of Revelations, in context with both the Old and New Testaments and in consideration of the many translation options from the Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek and most importantly in how TI and DO’s teachings, behaviors, ways and lifestyle coincided, without Their trying to do so, as I, Sawyer witnessed as Their student for 19 years.

    -Father and Son both reside, (dwell with, abode) with Their Students. (Joh 14:22-23)
    -They both have new names and the One who was “Jesus” identifies His Father. (Rev 3:12, Rev 14:1)
    -They come incarnate in the task of the Two Witnesses to speak publicly (prophesy) New Revealing about the reality of Their Kingdom, how and when it can be entered, that serves to gather Their returned “Saints,” the Souls who were their students with Jesus and Moses. (Luk 17:30, Mat 24:31).
    -The Father incarnates into a female human body and “Mind/Spirit births” His Son to the Throne. (Rev 12)
    -They are both Olive Trees, Lampstands, and are Anointed so are both Christs. (Rev 11:3-4, Zec 4:1-14)
    -They speak plainly, (open, bold, confident), not in parables (Luk 12:2) and Students can ask the Father questions directly. (Joh 16:25-27)
    -Their prophecy is focused in the West and Southwest U.S.A., described as the spiritual (symbolic) Sodom (scorched, desert) e.g. Las Vegas, Egypt (“two straights” (Streets, Ways (FIRST & LAST)) and New Jerusalem; California (Los Angeles) to Texas, (Rev 3:12), to a “new nation (people)” (Mat 21:42-43), leaving Jerusalem in Palestine/Israel “desolate” (empty of Their Updated Mind/Spirit – Presence). (Rev 11:8, Mat 23:37-39)
    -In 1975 They are subdued (overcome) by the U.S. national media, mouthpiece of the “Beast” – the Secret Govt (Mystery Babylon) formed because of the release of the Luciferian Space Aliens from their “bottomless pit” prison in the 1940’s to 1950’s during the 5th Angels Trumpet Sounding. (Rev 9, 11:7, 12:4, 17)
    -The Father’s incarnation Exit was seemingly “natural”-“Earth Opened Her Mouth.” in 1985. Do and Students Exited by laying (falling) down Their human bodies in 1997, shown by the comprehensive translation of the Greek “apokteino auto” as “to separate by dying Their selves.” (Rev 11:7,16, Rev 12:16)
    -Their ascension, Jesus called a “spirit birth,” compared to wind, not seen as physical bodies going up. The “cloud” (of light) was the Hale-Bopp Comet with it’s photographed “companion object.” (Rev 11:12, Joh 3:5-8)
    -Do Comes Public as the return of “Jesus” in 1993, shown as sitting on a “white horse,” the human body He took named Marshall Applewhite, which He purifies to Recover Virginity. “Bow” represents the Covenant (rainbow) with the “litter/fold” He “births” by directing each Students own Overcoming of Humanness. (Rev 6:2)
    -The Red/Ruddy “Horse” – G.W. Bush, et al, used the 9/11 WTC attacks – the “great earth(shaking)” (1st Fall of “Babylon”) to wield a great sword (military) for a perpetual “war on terror.” (Rev 6:3-4, 11:13, 14:8)
    -Barack Obama, et al, was the Black/Deep Blue (jacinth) “Horse” presiding over the stabilizing of the Global Financial Crisis (2nd Fall of “Babylon”) manufactured to usher in the U.S. BEAST’s riding the yolk of the New World Order (U.N.) (Rev 6:5-6, Rev 13, 14:8, 18:2)
    -Sign of Opening of Temple of God in Heaven revealed by NASA Dawn spacecraft photos of dwarf planet Ceres’ cityscape of lights with 5+ mile high crystal-like Tower as evidence of 2017 4th Seal Opening: Green (Space Alien tare (weed) harvest, NWO front promotion of human caused global warming) Horse (US President) agenda, accelerating death in Tribulation/Judgment Hour = LAST Harvest Wave (Rev 6:8, 11:19, 14:20, 15:5)
    -Luciferian (restricted Space) Aliens are depicted as fowls, birds of prey, locusts(Mat 13:4;Rev 9:3,18:2, 19:17)
    -Afterward, Do returns with His “Armada” of brightly shining (glorious) Clouds of Light – “horses” (spacecrafts) for every eye to see, with His FIRST Fruit Graduate (Saints) all “wearing” Their new Kingdom of God “made” (grown to an adult on a vine, not born of woman) physical, biological bodies, with His being “like the Son of Man,” Jesus’ “dipped in blood body (vesture).”(Rev 1:7,11:19,14:14,16:15,19:11-14, 1Co 15:39+)
