JOHN EATS THE LITTLE BOOK
HE ACCEPTS THE COMMISSION AND CONTINUES TO PROPHESY
The little book is the mission given to John
to keep on preaching.
Sweet in the mouth. Like Ezekiel 2:8; 3:3,
it is sweet, being God's word (Psalm 10) but bitter
because the subject of the preaching is judgment. It is
bad news. To eat the book means that John accepted the
job of announcing this bad news.
The time has arrived for God to avenge the blood of the
martyred saints. There will be no more delay. The
curtain will now fall.
