Day 346, December 12, Revelation 10

Click here for today's reading

1 Then I saw another extremely powerful messenger descending out of heaven. He wore a cloud wrapped around him, and a rainbow was covering his head. His face shone like the sun, and his legs blazed like columns of fire. 2 In his hand, he held a little scroll that had been unrolled. He placed his right foot on the sea and his left foot on dry land; 3 then he shouted with a voice that sounded like a roaring lion. When he cried out, the seven thunders answered with their own rumbling voices.

I can't imagine what this was like for John to witness. He had extraordinary relationship with Jesus when He was on the earth and I'm sure that relationship continued and probably grew stronger during his exile. Yet, to witness these things and to write them down. It had to be amazing.


  1. Yes, Holly. Don't you wish you could talk to John about this and ask questions?

  2. Revelation 10
    4 When the seven thunders spoke, I was going to write it down. I heard a voice from heaven say, “Seal up what the seven thunders have said, and don’t write it down.”
    5 The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven. 6 He swore an oath by the one who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and everything in it, the earth and everything in it, and the sea and everything in it. He said, “There will be no more delay. 7 In the days when the seventh angel is ready to blow his trumpet, the mystery of God will be completed, as he had made this Good News known to his servants, the prophets.”
