Now we will go to Revelation. The mighty Angel of Revelation Ch. 10 is a description of the Second Coming which is a secret, the description being that of Son of Man. Setting his left foot on the earth indicates a small centre with a selected few in the West, and setting his right foot on the sea is powerful work in the East. He cries as a lion roaring. The little book is open. This means, The Mighty Angel is not a earthly prophet and he breaks the seals and opens it; and any earthly prophet sees only the breaking of the seals and he does not break the seals. The fanatics, let them think and talk as they like, but what is written in the Word of God will take place and not what the "circuit riders and money bags" think.
When the revelations are nearly over the roaring takes place. See Amos 3 : 4: "Will a lion roar in the forest, when he hath no prey ? Will a young lion cry out of his den, if he have taken nothing ?" So the lion of the tribe of Judah with his own revelations caught the Bride and he roars. This means, Before the roaring, he secretly gives out the revelation and when this has accomplished the gathering of the true Word Bride trained and tested, then he has finished his job and starts roaring and the seven thunders uttered their voices. Then John hears a voice from heaven saying unto him (John) "Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered and write them not." This means, There is a voice directing the prophet and the angel is on the earth. Now the angel stands up lifting up his hands to heaven and swears that the time will no longer be delayed. This shows that there is a delay out of grace for the sake of the Bride; and now that it is finished, the period of Israel should start.
In the days of the voice of the Seventh Angel (seventh church age messenger preparing the way to the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus) - in the days of his voice means that he will not be here in this world but his tapes and books will be read, and at this time the mystery of God should be finished as he had declared to his servants the prophets. Actually all the thunder mysteries should be finished at this time up to Apostle John. Now Jesus tells to receive Rev. 10 : 7 John as Elias by revelation ( that is why he says, He that hath got ears let him hear ). So now we know that just, before glorification and getting of the power, preaching is to be done by Son of Man to the souls in prison, who cannot be converted, but yet they get the gospel before judgment. So actually this John who is Elias after Rev. 10:7 when the mystery of God should be finished, tells John in the 8th verse as a heavenly voice to go and take the book which is open. This is open, so the secrecy is not there, and glorification is over.
If you turn to Rev. 22 : 10, the angel of the Lord God (V. 6) i.e. the angel of Jesus (V. 16), tells John not to seal the sayings of the prophecy of this book. There is a time to seal, and there is a time for the seals to be opened and not to seal further; and when it is the latter time, there is no further time for repentence as is seen in V. 11. The First Coming is introduced by John the Baptist according to Malachi 3 : 1; then the Word-Lord Jesus comes. The Second Coming is introduced by the Seventh Angel as the Prophet of that age - Laodicean Church age (Rev. 3 : 20) -- for the Son of Man to come and suffer many things and be set at nought" (Mark 9 : 12). The Third Coming is introduced by Elijah the Tishbite who witnesseth and announceth the Third Coming according to Malachi 4 : 5. So we now know the position of the prophets and the Three Comings. Do not confuse yourselves any more about this.
The reason why the Son of Man is set at nought is to enable him to catch the Bride secretly without others noticing it; and also if he is regarded as a base and worthless man, no physical harm can come to him ( as it would otherwise be, that is, if he is very popular, etc.,) till the glorification; and further, judgment does not fall on people who falsely accuse and "set at nought" the Son of Man, because they do it for the fulfilment of the scriptures. In Jesus' time also, for all the astrocities on the innocent Lord Jesus, God did not punish the concerned people immediately, as they did it for the fulfilment of the scriptures; but God dealt with them severely later. So Bride, Do not be discouraged. Let the false tares understand that God is not mocked. What you sow, you will reap, and that too in a greater measure, like one grain producing many seeds; and what you sow only you will reap; and so you cannot reap good things by sowing bad things. So the false accusers without being punished prove that they are tares, but no punishment is meted out to them for some time, and the heart of people is fully set in them to do evil - (Eccl. 8 : 11).
