Significant Words and Comments:
Commentary on Revelation 10:7 (8 February 2008):  “But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel,” this is at the beginning of the final communication which is to agitate the minds of people and make them tremble. Note that this is only an identification of a time-frame [27 March to 22 May 2009], for the sounding of the seventh trumpet isn’t presented for another twenty-five verses, in Revelation 11:15. These next twenty-five verses discuss aspects of this completion of Elohim’s mystery!
“When he shall begin to sound,” when this seventh messenger begins to agitate men’s minds “the mystery of Elohim should be finished.”
        What is
“the mystery of Elohim”? Mystery is from musterion [G3466], meaning “hidden thing, secret, concealed wisdom.” Musterion is from a derivative of the primary root verb muo meaning “to shut the mouth.” Mystery is a New Testament word, derived in concept and content from the mystery religions of Babylon and Egypt. As such, mystery is not established in Yehuveh’s truth and has no true counterpart in Torah. However, Yehuveh’s concealed wisdom (very different from the Egyptian mysteries) is a very real part of His instruction. This hidden wisdom is presented in Torah as Yehuveh’s secret [always singular, never secrets]. “The secret of Yehuveh is with them that fear Him; and He will shew them His covenant.” “For the froward is abomination to Yehuveh: but His secret is with the righteous.” “He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets.” Thus Yehuveh told Noah (Genesis 6:13), Abraham (Genesis 18:17), Moses (Exodus 3-4), David (1 Samuel 30:8), Jehoshaphat (1 Kings 22:18-23), Elisha (2 Kings 3:14-20), Josiah (2 Kings 22:1-20), Daniel (Daniel 9:22-27), Zechariah (Zechariah 1:13-21), and many others, of soon-coming events or other needed information. If we have hearts prepared to hear, Yehuveh will speak His wisdom and instruction to us as well! “Secret things belong unto Yehuveh our Elohim: but those things which are revealed belong unto us and to our children for ever, that we may do all the words of this law.” Psalms 25:14; Proverbs 3:32; Amos 3:7; Deuteronomy 29:29.
        As noted by
Revelation 1:20, explaining a mystery or secret is providing a key which unlocks that and other hidden truths! Only those who have allowed Yehuveh to cleanse them are prepared to understand His concealed wisdom. To them He speaks openly: “Surely Yehuveh Elohim will do nothing, but He revealeth His secret unto His servants the prophets.” Thus, likewise, Yehuveh’s instructors are discrete in what they speak.  “A prudent man concealeth knowledge.” He speaks what others are prepared to hear. Amos 3:7; Proverbs 12:23.
