Revelation Chapter 10:8
Revelation 10:8 – Then the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, “Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth.”
The voice in Heaven that told John to seal up the seven thunders in Revelation 10:4 tells him to take the little book that the mighty angel is holding open in his hand. This voice from Heaven has great authority and commands John to take the little book from the hand of the mighty angel, who himself has great authority with the earth and sea under his feet, as discussed in Revelation 10:2. Undoubtedly, the voice from Heaven with authority over the mighty angel is God the Father:
This is the third reference to the location of the angel who stands on the sea and earth (verses 2, 5 and 8). This emphasizes strongly the unusual authority he has over the earth.
2 Peter 1:17-18 – For He received from God the Father honor and glory when such a voice came to Him from the Excellent Glory: “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” And we heard this voice which came from heaven when we were with Him on the holy mountain.
John 12:28-32 – “Father, glorify Your name.” Then a voice came from heaven, saying, “I have both glorified it and will glorify it again.” Therefore the people who stood by and heard it said that it had thundered. Others said, “An angel has spoken to Him.” Jesus answered and said, “This voice did not come because of Me, but for your sake. Now is the judgment of this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out. And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.”
The mighty angel held the little book in his hand when he swore the oath that there would be no more delay to finish the 3 ½ year period shown to Daniel, as discussed in Revelation 10:6. This suggests that the little book is the same prophecy the man in linen gave to Daniel. The last few sections will show that the little book is prophetic and we will see in Revelation 10:11 that this is the same 3 ½ year period shown to Daniel.
