Revelation 10:1-11
The Angel Of Rev_10:1-11 Proclaims God’s Last Message


A UNIQUE PROPHETIC MOVEMENT part 2/3

Revelation 10:1-11
The Angel Of Rev_10:1-11 Proclaims God’s Last Message

And he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth. Rev_10:2. {CTr 340.1}

The message of Rev_14:1-20, proclaiming that the hour of God’s judgment is come, is given in the time of the end. The angel of Rev_10:1-11 is represented as having one foot on the sea and one foot on the land, showing that the message will be carried to distant lands, the ocean will be crossed, and the islands of the sea will hear the proclamation of the last message of warning to our world. . . . {CTr 340.2}

“That there should be time no longer.” This message announces the end of the prophetic periods. The disappointment of those who expected to see our Lord in 1844 was indeed bitter to those who had so ardently looked for His appearing. It was in the Lord’s order that this disappointment should come, and that hearts should be revealed. {CTr 340.3}

Not one cloud has fallen upon the church that God has not prepared for; not one opposing force has risen to counter work the work of God that He has not foreseen. All has taken place as He has predicted through His prophets. He has not left His church forsaken in darkness, but has traced in prophetic declarations what would occur, and through His providence, acting in its appointed place in the world’s history, He has brought about that which His Holy Spirit inspired the prophets to foretell. All His purposes will be fulfilled and established. His law is linked with His throne, and satanic agencies combined with human agencies cannot destroy it. {CTr 340.4}

Truth is inspired and guarded by God; it will live, and will succeed, although it may appear at times to be overshadowed. The gospel of Christ is the law exemplified in character. The deceptions practiced against it, every device for vindicating falsehood, every error forged by satanic agencies, will eventually be eternally broken, and the triumph of truth will be like the appearing of the sun at noonday. The Sun of Righteousness shall shine forth with healing in His wings, and the whole earth shall be filled with His glory. {CTr 340.5}

All that God has in prophetic history specified to be fulfilled in the past has been, and all that is yet to come in its order will be. Daniel, God’s prophet, stands in his place. John stands in his place. In the Revelation the Lion of the tribe of Judah has opened to the students of prophecy the book of Daniel, and thus is Daniel standing in his place. He bears his testimony, that which the Lord revealed to him in vision, of the great and solemn events that we must know as we stand on the very threshold of their fulfillment.-Manuscript 32, 1896 (Manuscript Releases, vol. 17, pp. 9-11). {CTr 340.6}

10:8-11 This message was to be “in thy mouth sweet as honey” but in “thy belly bitter.” In the early 1800s there were many honest and godly Bible students around the world who, independent of one another, were convicted that Jesus would soon return. Many of them saw in the prophecy of the 2,300 years of Daniel 8:14 a prediction that Christ would come very soon to cleanse the earth by fire. Most believed that it would be soon time in the early to mid-1800s. The most influential of these groups, led by William Miller, determined that 1844 was the correct year. See note on Daniel 8:14; 9:25. However, they misunderstood the event prophesied to take place at the end of the 2,300 years. They had the misconception that the sanctuary to be cleansed represented the earth. This message of Christ’s soon return, to end all sorrow and pain, was “sweet” in their mouths. When he did not return at the appointed time they experienced a “bitter” disappointment, similar to what the disciples went through when Christ’s death shattered their beliefs that He would set up an earthly empire. Luke 24:13-27.
The sanctuary to be cleansed in Daniel 8:14 is not the earth, nor is it the earthly sanctuary—which became unnecessary when Christ died once for all 8:(Hebrews 7:27; 9) and which no longer exists. It is the heavenly sanctuary that is to be cleansed, referring to the time when Christ enters the Most Holy Place of the heavenly sanctuary, to begin the Judgment. Right now we are living in that awesome Day of Judgment, but those whose lives are being changed through the love of Jesus fear, for Jesus is their Advocate.
