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’
‘7’ Paul Rolland, Night Watchman, Night Watchman Ministries:
Evil mankind (6) + evil beast/antichrist (6) + evil false prophet (6) = 666 (a literal number represented by the number 6, repeated three times in a linear row.)
The infamous, “Mark of the Beast” and “number of his name is 666” imagery is no different than any of the other generalized, descriptive terms that John the Apostle used, while in his banishment on the Isle of Patmos. Rev. 13:17-18 is probably the most symbolic, well known and most poorly understood two verses in the book of Revelation, and in the entire Bible. “And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man: and his number is Six hundred, threescore and six (666).” (Emphasis added).
(6) The Number of an Evil Man:
Verse 13:18 clearly states that 666 (6) is a number of a man … not a number of an angel, not a number of Satan (which is ‘5’), Devil, serpent or dragon, nor of any kind of reference to Babylon (city) or Mystery Babylon (false religion). The reference is literally to man (mankind), the beast/antichrist (a literal, physical man) and the false prophet (a literal, physical man). Each of them is judged to be extremely evil and each is therefore assigned a number of six (6) to represent the imperfection, sinfulness and evilness of man, before God. Combining the number of each type of man leads to 666, this (6) number represents the totality of evil, of the three men. ‘7’ The number three (3) denotes intensity and emphasis. The fact that the number six (6) is repeated three (3) times emphasizes the most intense evil that mankind, antichrist, and the false prophet (6) collectively possess during the tribulation period. Evil doesn’t come any worse, or more intensely than this. Period. When the bible states an important reference to someone or something, the word ‘7’ of God is very specific and literal. There should be no confusion. To understand why the number six (6) represents evil, Verse 13:18 (6) tells us to “count” his number
Six (6) is (6) the number of an EVIL MAN. Evil Beast, Evil False Prophet, Evil Man’kind. 666. God says COUNT (6) the number of an EVIL MAN.

Sexual norms will be out the window, and the world will become increasingly confused about morality and God’s design for sex and gender (Romans 1:18-32).
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
“‘Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.
“‘If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the Lord thy God.
(5) JUNE IS LGBT PRIDE MONTH. 6/6/2022 (6). ‘666’. Israel’s gay pride parades reveal just how far the nation has strayed from its biblical foundations
Yet Israel’s political culture has largely embraced the LGBTQ+ movement — and pro-Israel Christians are largely silent. Why?
Joel C. Rosenberg | June 6, 2022 allisraelnews
More than 7,000 Israelis marched in the Jerusalem Pride Parade last week, celebrating the LGBTQ+ lifestyle and advocating for more rights for Israel’s gay community.
On Friday, Tel Aviv will hold its annual Pride Parade during a week-long series of events, which attracts people from all over the world.
Tel Aviv Pride is one of the city’s biggest events each year.
In 2019, just before COVID, more than 250,000 attended.
While such events are evidence of a vibrant Israeli democracy that allows freedom of speech and freedom of assembly to everyone, they are also a sign of just how far Israel has strayed from its biblical foundations.
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE TEACH?
In the very first pages of the Bible – Genesis chapters 1 and 2 – Moses explains that God created men and women in His image, that He specifically created the institution of marriage to be between men and women, and that God specifically designed sexual intimacy as a beautiful blessing between men and women.
“Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in Our image, in Our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.’ So God created mankind in His own image, in the image of God He created them; male and female He created them. God blessed them and said to them, ‘Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it.’….God saw all that He had made, and it was very good.” (Gen. 1:26-28, 31)
“The Lord God said, ‘It is not good for man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him. ’Now the Lord God had formed out of the ground all the wild animals and all the birds in the sky. He brought them to the man to see what he would name them; and whatever the man called each living creature, that was its name. So the man gave names to all the livestock, the birds in the sky and all the wild animals. But for Adam no suitable helper was found. So the Lord God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, He took one of the man’s ribs and then closed up the place with flesh. Then the Lord God made a woman from the rib He had taken out of the man, and He brought her to the man. The man said, ‘This is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman,’ for she was taken out of man.” (Gen. 2:18-23)
“That is why a man leaves his father and mother and is united to his wife, and they become one flesh. Adam and his wife were both naked, and they felt no shame.” (Gen. 2:24-25)
The Bible does not avoid the topic of same sex attraction.
Rather, it describes homosexuality as sin.
Because it goes against God’s specific and intentional design and plan to bless the very men and women that He created and with whom He wants to be in close fellowship.
ISRAEL’S POLITICAL CULTURE LARGELY IGNORES THE BIBLE
Yet few Israelis view the LGBTQ+ lifestyle as a rebellion against the God of Israel.
Indeed, Israeli’s political culture has largely embraced the gay community and ignored the teachings of the Hebrew Bible.
As ALL ISRAEL NEWS reported last week, Knesset Speaker Mickey Levy told participants in the Jerusalem Pride Parade, “You are entitled to love who you want, you are entitled to marry who you love, you are entitled to raise a family like anyone else. These are not privileges; these are basic rights for every citizen in the country.”
The Yesh Atid party – led by Foreign Minister Yair Lapid – is the second largest political party in the country with 19 seats in the Knesset and boasts that it is the most-gay-supportive party in Israel.
“Yesh Atid has fought for the LGBT community more than any other party in the past six (6) years,” said former MK Yael German.
Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Idan Roll – a member of Knesset from the Yesh Atid party – is gay, married to a man and the father of two children.
Israel’s Health Minister Nitzan Horowitz is the first openly gay leader of an Israeli political party, emerging as the head of the left-wing Meretz party in 2019.
But the first openly gay minister appointed to the Cabinet was Amir Ohana from the right-wing Likud party in 2019.
Very few Israeli Orthodox or ultra-Orthodox Jews who believe in and seek to follow the Torah discuss the topic much, or seek to engage the issue in the Knesset.
FEW PRO-ISRAEL CHRISTIANS DISCUSS THE SUBJECT
Very few pro-Israel Christians tend to discuss the topic either.
There are a range of reasons. Many who hold to biblical values don’t want to appear as intolerant.
But the issue here should not be tolerance.
In a democracy, the LGBTQ+ community has every right to advocate for their views and values.
Followers of Jesus living in a democracy should be “tolerant” of people’s right to make their case.
Yet Jews and Christians – and conservative Muslims – who hold different views and values should not be afraid to express their views and values.
Bible believers should never be afraid to teach the Word of God, doing so with love and compassion for those who disagree.
Silence is not helpful.
The God of Israel commands us to preach and teach the Word of God because how, then, can people follow God’s precepts for life if they don’t know them?
Leaving the discussion of God’s plan for marriage and sexuality to bitter lunatics and extremists who are hateful and vicious against homosexuals is wrong.
CHRISTIANS MUST ALWAYS REJECT HATRED AND VIOLENT EXTREMISM
Hatred, cruelty and extremism should always be denounced and rejected.
Christians must firmly and consistently denounce and reject every form of physical violence, threats, intimidation and other illegal acts against the gay community as wrong, immoral and reprehensible.
Those who engage in such violent activity should be arrested and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
To be honest, I am deeply saddened to see Israelis proudly marching in the streets of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv in defiance of the God of Israel and the scriptures that He gave us as an instruction book for healthy, joyful, godly lives.
At the same time, I am grateful that the Israeli government deploys so many police officers to prevent violence.
“In 2015, an Israeli man stabbed 16-year-old Shira Banki to death and wounded several others at the Jerusalem Pride Parade.” The Washington Post reported last week that the assailant “had recently been released for a similar attack on parade participants in 2005.”
The Post added that last Thursday Israeli police “apprehended a 21-year-old European citizen residing in Jerusalem on suspicion of sending threats to an organizer of the parade and to several members of parliament who support LGBTQ rights.”
Violence has no place in a free society.
I thank God – and the police – that there was no violence last week and I pray no attacks occur in the weeks ahead.
SPEAKING THE TRUTH IN LOVE
Last point: In the New Testament, followers of Jesus are commanded to “speak the truth in love.” (Eph. 4:15)
Teaching biblical principles of marriage and sexuality may not be popular in this day and age.
But we must do so anyway – teaching the truth with kindness, respect and unconditional love.
That’s what Jesus modeled for us.
Let us follow His lead.

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.
