Significant Words and Comments:
Commentary on Revelation 10:10 (11 February 2008): “And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand,” that is, “the anointed instructors exalted Yehuveh’s covenant and instruction, embracing the global healing it brought.”
They “ate it up,” “totally made it their own,” “fully incorporated it into their thinking.” “Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and Thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart.” Jeremiah 15:16.
“It was in my mouth sweet as honey,” is, “the powerful message came from Yehuveh’s instructors as clear communication” of His “law, . . . testimony, . . . statutes, . . . commandment, . . . fear, [and] judgments,” as noted on Revelation 10:9. To those who “take diligent heed to do the commandment and the law, which Moses the servant of Yehuveh charged you, to love Yehuveh your Elohim, and to walk in all His ways, and to keep His commandments, and to cleave unto Him, and to serve Him with all your heart and with all your soul,” His wisdom is most precious and enjoyable! Psalms 19:7-10; Joshua 22:5.
“How sweet are Thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through Thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.” “My son, eat thou honey, because it is good; and the honeycomb, which is sweet to thy taste: So shall the knowledge of wisdom be unto thy soul: when thou hast found it, then there shall be a reward, and thy expectation shall not be cut off.” “Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.” “Oh that My people had hearkened unto Me, and Israel had walked in My ways! I should soon have subdued their enemies, and turned My hand against their adversaries. The haters of Yehuveh should have submitted themselves unto him: but their time should have endured for ever. He should have fed them also with the finest of the wheat: and with honey out of the rock should I have satisfied thee.” Psalms 119:103-105; Proverbs 24:13-14; Isaiah 7:15; Psalms 81:13-16.
“As soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter,” that is, “as soon as Yehuveh’s instruction was received, it caused deep heart-wrenching grief” for all our errors and wrong actions: “I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they . . . shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.” “They that escape of you shall remember Me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their whorish heart, which hath departed from Me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring after their idols: and they shall lothe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations.” “They that escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity.” “And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed.” “Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.” See notes on Revelation 10:9. Zechariah 12:10; Ezekiel 6:9; 7:16; 20:43; 36:31.
