Ten ‘10’ Denotes God’s divine ‘COMPLETENESS’ as to things on EARTH. In Revelation 10, he is opening up the ancient scrolls and ‘little book’ of prophecy that Daniel was told to ‘SEAL UP’ and not write of what was spoken. He was prophetically being told additional things that would transpire or occur ‘in the end of days’ and during the 7 year ‘tribulation.
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the ‘time of the end’: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the ‘time of the end’.
‘Time of the End’:
Revelation ‘10’ And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
2 And he had in his hand a ‘little book open’: (NWN; Daniels ‘little book’ is now being opened by God’s Great Angel of Prophecy) and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven ‘7’ thunders uttered their voices.
(NWN; I ‘discern’ that these are seven ‘7’ other great prophecy angels who are ‘confirming’ that NOW IS THE TIME to OPEN DANIEL’S ‘END TIME’ Book of Future Prophecy.’)
4 And when the seven ‘7’ thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven ‘7’ thunders uttered, and write them not.
5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
(NWN; The Great Prophecy Angel is proclaiming the ‘LAST DAYS or END TIMES’ have come, in no uncertain terms, and that NOW IS THE TIME to reveal prophecy related TO the Last Days or End Times and Tribulation.)
7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh ‘7’ angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
(NWN; Seven ‘7’ denotes God’s divine completion to his plan or purpose for this ‘7th’ prophecy angel to commence and complete prophecy related to the Last Days and End Times. Think of the Great Prophecy Angel as a ‘General’ and the ‘7th’ prophecy angel as a Major or Colonel or someone of rank who has been given authority to physically ‘begin something or start something.’)
8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open (NWN; notice that the ‘little book’ is OPEN) in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
(NWN; the prophecy angel(s) are HANDING the little book to physically alive men on the earth. In essence, they are handing or ‘transferring’ the ‘little book of prophecy’ to physical men ALIVE on the EARTH during the ‘End Times’ or ‘Last Days.’ God conveys prophecy to Angels who in turn are ‘messengers’ of God’s prophecy to mortal men alive. Angels, throughout the past 6,000 years have been ‘messengers’ for God to mankind.)
9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
(NWN; this is a ‘discernment’ on my part. ‘Take it and eat it’ is a spiritual ‘consumption’ of understanding the End Times and God’s related prophecies to go along with ‘signs of the times.’ It takes ‘7’ knowledge, wisdom, obedience, humility, persistence, prayer and the Holy Spirit’ to work prophecy in man’kind. This is a great and wonderful thing, just like a ‘7’ course meal. However, once the prophecies are apparent ‘consumed and understood’ they will be prone to make one sick to the stomach because of what they foretell. Just like eating a ’7’ course meal will likely make you feel like you could explode. God’s UNFILTERD WRATH poured on evil man’kind who refuse Him, and refuse His Son Jesus Christ and His eternal offer of salvation. Seeing prophecy happen and unfold is a wonderful and miraculous thing. Understanding the implications of seeing prophecy unfold, leaves one’s stomach bitter and sour because of the ‘gastrointestinal storm’ that is coming. Pass-the-antacid-pills, please.)
10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
(NWN; the prophecy angel was prophesying what would happen to anyone who attempted to reveal what was in the ‘little book.’ This verse ‘confirms’ that what was prophesied, did in fact occur and was experienced by those given the task of being Watchmen. This also ‘suggests’ that some men are ‘willingly’ allowing themselves to be Watchmen because they consciously love prophecy (God’s Word) and are completely open and receptive to it.)
11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
(NWN; since this is verse ‘11’ it suggests a WARNING(S). The purpose of prophecy is to inform, proclaim and WARN. It suggests that the Watchmen who proclaim the Word of God, will have their ‘7’ words, letters, videos, blogs, sermons, articles and books proclaim God’s WILL to those during the End Times / Last Days and Tribulation period. God has ALWAYS used Holy Angels and physical men (Moses, Elijah, Daniel, Enoch, and others) to speak on behalf of God. He will do this also through the Tribulation via; 1. Prophecy revealed to mankind via his ‘little book’ to Watchmen, 2. The ‘two witnesses’, ‘lampstands’ or candles who proclaims God’s light to the world for the first 3.5 years of the tribulation, 3. The various Angel warnings given to men to NOT TAKE THE MARK of the BEAST and lastly, 4. The 144,000 Jewish Evangelists who have the ‘seal of God’ in their foreheads (and NOT the mark of the Beast) who proclaim Jesus Christ’s offer of Salvation ONE LAST TIME, before the 7 year tribulation ends.)
Acts 2:17-21 And it shall come to pass ‘in the last days’, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke:
Joel 2:28-29 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions: 29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids ‘in those days’
Just In; ‘It’s just not good.’ Experts describe the dire situation in Texas as they battle record-breaking temperatures and raging fires
By Jennifer Gray, CNN meteorologist Updated 2:53 PM ET, Mon May 9, 2022
(CNN)In parts of Texas, smoke fills the sky.
Wildfires are burning out of control; the brush is dry and all it takes is a single spark to create the next fire that could rage out of control.
No home or neighborhood is safe from this reality in Amarillo.
Extreme temperatures are another factor. Record-breaking, triple-digit heat is only making matters worse.
As one meteorologist put it, “It’s just not good.”
A summer heat in May
Temperatures in Amarillo this time of year are supposed to be at a comfortable 78 degrees.
However, since Friday, they have been soaring into the triple digits — even setting records.
On Friday, the city hit 90 degrees.
“That was the first time in May that we did that,” said Alex Ferguson, meteorologist for the National Weather Service (NWS) office in Amarillo.
But it only got worse from there. The next day, May 7, Amarillo hit 101 degrees, setting more records. “That beat a (daily high temperature) record from 1916. The previous record for May 7 was 97,” said Ferguson. “That also represented the earliest 100-degree day here in Amarillo.”
The weather service in Austin/San Antonio is also keeping track of records. Their region has been in the triple digits since Friday, making it the earliest they have ever seen 100-degree consecutive days. San Antonio hit triple digits on Saturday and Sunday, and could do it again today.
It might seem like just a bunch of numbers to some, but for the people in Amarillo, it means much more.
“You know, it’s just not good. It’s not good out here,” said Ferguson. “Both for the fire danger and for agricultural concerns.”
The heat has only added to a host of problems. The region is in extreme drought.
The entire Texas Panhandle is currently in the highest two categories of drought, which has gone hand in hand with their wildfire problems.
“You know that the odds are that a grass fire is going to run through open country here. But they can threaten towns,” said Ferguson. “I know we had the town of Skellytown that was threatened by a fire earlier this year.”
The fire burned nearly 24,000 acres and destroyed several homes.
Just in the last few weeks, towns have been evacuated due to a fire risk in the area.
And as we’ve seen time and time again, these fires can travel so quickly, burn ferociously, and people have very little warning.
It’s grown to be New Mexico’s second-largest wildfire in history.
With very low humidity levels during the last few weeks across the Southwest, lack of rainfall, and winds topping 50 mph, fires have been raging.
Three new large fires were reported over the weekend, two in Arizona and one in Texas.
Currently, 12 uncontained large fires have burned 322,309 acres in four states, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.
The dangerous heat will only make the brush drier and more susceptible to fires.
The Climate Prediction Center recently released their summer climate outlook, and it doesn’t bring good news for much of the Southwest — or the entire country for that matter.
The center’s forecast shows we will likely see above normal temperatures for the Southwest in the summer months, as well as below normal rainfall for these areas, including Amarillo.
Places like New Mexico could see some relief from monsoon rains, but it’s probably not going to help in the long term, according to Brad Pugh, meteorologist at the CPC.
“Later in the summer, July and August, if enhanced monsoon rainfall does occur that could provide at least a temporary relief to the drought across Arizona and New Mexico,” said Pugh. “Unfortunately, the summer months are typically dry for California and the Great Basin, so we would expect drought conditions to persist for those areas through the summer.”
One contributing factor to the climate outlook is the fact we are still in La Niña conditions.
La Niña is a phenomenon which causes warmer than normal temperatures across parts of the West and below normal precipitation.
It can also result in a more active Atlantic hurricane season.
Hurricane season could get an earlier start
Sounds like the last thing you want to hear if you live along the coast.
As if six months of monitoring weather data, looking at spaghetti models and stalking the National Hurricane Center website wasn’t enough.
I know. I’ve lived it most of my life. It’s stressful to say the least.
But the truth of the matter is hurricane season is starting to not recognize the boundaries we’ve set as a “season.”
“Named storms have formed prior to the official start of the hurricane season in about half of the past 10-15 years, including each of the past seven years (2015-2021),” said Dennis Feltgen, meteorologist and public affairs officer at the NHC.
We are now just a few weeks away from the official start of hurricane season — which begins June 1, and the possibility remains for this season to have something develop before June 1.
In fact, on Sunday, the NHC’s Tropical Analysis and Forecast Branch highlighted the “first tropical wave of the season” coming off the coast of Africa. And there was an interesting little spin in the forecast models off the Southeast coast, which got the attention of some of my colleagues over the weekend.

It shows me things are already starting to come alive in the tropics, even if nothing seems definite at this point.
So, it begs the question, should the start of hurricane season be changed?
“In 2021, the National Weather Service assembled a team to determine quantitative thresholds for adding or removing dates from the official Atlantic hurricane season, along with an examination of potential ramifications of moving the beginning of hurricane season to May 15,” said Feltgen.
As of now, no changes will be made to the hurricane season dates for this season, but it doesn’t mean it won’t happen sometime in the future.
While we continue to see storms spin up outside of our typical season, most of them have proved to be quite brief and weaker systems.
“Many of the May systems are short-lived, hybrid (subtropical) systems that are now being identified because of better monitoring as well as policy changes that we now name subtropical storms,” said Feltgen.
Last year, the NHC began issuing their tropical weather outlooks in mid-May to account for any preseason storms developing.
The outlooks highlight any areas the NHC is watching for potential development. So, this Sunday (May 15), the NHC will begin issuing them four times a day.
Also, NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center will put out their forecast for the upcoming hurricane season on May 24.
It will include the number of named storms, hurricanes and major hurricanes expected over the entire six-month season.

Matthew 25:13; Watch therefore, for ye know neither the day nor the hour wherein the Son of man cometh.
Mark 13:35; Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning.
Luke 21:36; Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man
Luke 12:37-39; Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. And if he shall come in the second watch, or come in the third watch, and find them so, blessed are those servants. And this know, that if the goodman of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched, and not have suffered his house to be broken through.
