He had a very similar experience and Ezekiel to verse eight it reads like this, but you son of man here what I say to you, do not be rebellious like that rebellious house open your mouth and eat what I give you now when I looked there was a hand stretched out to me and held a scroll of the book was in any spread before Maine there was writing on the inside on the outside and written on it were lamentations in morning and where, moreover, he said to me, son of man, eat what you find this girl go and speak to the house of Israel, open my mouth and he caused me to eat that scroll. He said to me, Son of Man, feed your belly and fill your stomach with this girl that I give you Sarah. Eight and it was in my mouth like honey and sweetness.
The message tasted sweet John. Also, it tasted sweet to Ezekiel, but it did not sit too well in the stomach. Often times were not is not to physically eat the word like eating the pages of the book that really what it's meant to be is to absorb it to take him to assimilate into our self and our consciousness. God's plan is sweet for us to taste, but the reality of judgment to come upon this world brings bitterness to the inner man. Prophecy is often sweet to the taste bitter and application. We see this crazy Kelly also said for John verse 11. John is told to prophesy again only after he has assimilated into his life. Too often we traffic undigested truth we find the word of God and we get the message behind the attend of Scripture. But we preach it. Having not applied it to our own lives. You know, and I've had a number of struggles in my life. Maybe one day I'll get to tell you about many of those in this program, but what I've learned, I've been sitting in my quiet time asking the Lord why were all the struggles necessary. What he spoke to my spirit was that if I had not had struggles. I would not really have anything to say.
All I would have to offer is something that I've read or trafficking undigested truth truth that I had not lived out in my own life. So the Lord sent the struggles in my life to have a truth that I can preach and teach with conviction. Having had my own personal experience. We have to preach and teach the whole digestive truth of the word of God is not enough. In this case for John to see the book, or even know its contents and purpose he had to receive it in his own inner being is not good enough just for us to be able to quote Scripture and have a knowledge of Jesus Christ and what he can do in his power. We are to have first-hand experience we must eat the book we must assimilated into our lives into our souls into our consciousness so that we can traffic undigested truth of God's word as compared to food many times in the Bible is compared to bread in Matthew chapter 4 verse four that he answered and said, it is written, man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. It is compared to milk and first Peter two into as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word that you may grow thereby is compared to meet in first Corinthians chapter 3 verses one through two and I brother and could not speak to you as spiritual people, but as to carnal, as to babes in Christ. I fed you with milk and not with solid food, for until now.
You are not able to receive it. And even now you are still not able is compared to honey in Psalms 119, 103.
How sweet are your words to my taste sweeter than honey to my mouth and Jeremiah chapter 15 and 16 and in Ezekiel chapter 2 and three.
They knew what it was like to eat the word before they could share it with others. In John one verse 14. I'm just gonna read that we know that the word must always become flesh, but I want to read in John one verse 14 because I think this is a great illustration and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We beheld his glory, the glory as the only begotten of the father full of grace and truth.
The word must always become flesh before it can be given to those who needed woe unto that preacher or teacher or merely echoes God's word and does not incarnated, making it a living part of their very being what I want to tell you today that God's not going to force-feed us. He hands it to us and we must take it and right now he has made the word of God the most freely accessible than it ever has been in the world as we know it, but he cannot change the effects that the word will have in our lives. We must voluntarily take it and eat it. He will not force-feed us the word of God will be sweet in our mouth but we know that it will be sorrow and joyful, bitter and sweet. It has warnings and prophecies of judgment in Matthew 56 it says blessed are those who hunger and thirst after righteousness for they shall be field in James chapter 1 it talks about heating to the word of God. The Bible is the most selling book of all time is word is most easily accessible through print, as well as the media as well as through our cell phones and James chapter 1 verse 22 through 25. It tells us but be doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving yourself for if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror he observes himself, goes away and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. He who looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues in it, and he is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work. This one will be blessed in what he does. John one verse 14. I think this is a great illustration and the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.
We beheld his glory, the glory as the only begotten of the father full of grace and truth.

He who looks into the perfect law of liberty, and continues in it, and he is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work. This one will be blessed in what he does that.
I just want to ask a question what what is the difference between a hearer and a doer. Those that are doers, assimilate the word into their consciousness and they have a faith. They believe God they take him at his word about taking God at his word and assimilating that into our consciousness eating the milk and the meat of the word of God. It is gonna push us to work night and when we have faith in God we take him at his word. We are going to work for him and I guarantee just as sure as you're listening to my voice. This assures your breathing.
God is God, that will not lie when he promises it will come to fruition.
I compel you to be a doer of the word and not a hearer only great so that wraps up our study of chapter 10, we see the angel of Jehovah.
I'm standing in the divine interlude between the sixth and the seventh trumpet. Can we talk about the importance of digesting the word and not passing on undigested truth. Today were going to begin in Revelation chapter 11 verses 1 to 14.
But before we get into the Scripture. I just want to remind you that we are still in the divine interlude between the sixth and the seventh trumpet. Let's get into the Scripture Revelation chapter 11 verses one through 14. Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod in the angel stood, saying, rise, and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there but leave out the court which is outside the temple and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles, for they will tread the holy city underfoot for 42 months and I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy 1260 days, clothed in sackcloth.
These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth. And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies and if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner. These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy.
They have power over waters to turn them to blood and to strike the earth without plagues, as often as they desire. When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them and kill them and their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, which also our Lord was crucified. And those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three and half days not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves and those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make Mary and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth. Now after the 3 1/2 days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, come up here and they ascended to heaven in a cloud in their enemies saw them in the same hour there is a great earthquake, and attended the city failed in the earthquake 7000 people were killed and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven. The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly in the first section of verses even in the first verse, John is given a reed like a measuring rod to talk about measuring the Temple that I just want to say an outright that this chapter is one of the most difficult chapters to interpret in all the New Testament in order to understand it. We must maintain three presuppositions in our mind.
So three assumptions in our mind. The first one is that this chapter is essentially a Jewish chapter of Scripture that focuses on Jerusalem. The temple and the Jews place in end time activity. Secondly, this is a prophetic chapter, not a historical chapter.
The temple had been destroyed in A.D. 70, will before John wrote Revelation. And lastly, this chapter is to be interpreted literally peoples numbers, places and events. So with that backdrop in mind, let's reread the Scriptures again. Go to verses one and two.
Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod in the angel stood, saying, rise, and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there but leave out the court which is outside the temple do not measure it has been given to the Gentiles, and they will tread the holy city underfoot for 42 months.
The first two verses set the stage for what is about to take place.
The temple in the holy city of Jerusalem.
To date there have been three temples first one was Solomon's Temple. We know that that was destroyed by Nebuchadnezzar 587 BC, the second Temple is the removal's Temple, which were built when the Jews return from captivity in Babylon. Remember the state of Babylon 70 years, and the removal came back and you'll find that in the books of Ezra Nehemiah of the rebuilding of the temple and the third Temple was on the temple built for the Jews by Herod the great, and that was the temple that was in existence during Jesus's ministry but yet to be built is the tribulation temple that is described in Revelation 11 and the millennial temple described in Ezekiel chapters 42, 43, but just to let you know during the tribulation, the temple will be rebuilt but not as an act of faith. Second Thessalonians chapter 2 verses three through four.
Let no one deceive you by any means for that day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, said that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God I pray today that you are encouraged in your walk with Christ and putting our faith in God and know that his promises are true.
