g. The Visions Inserted
between the Sixth
and Seventh Trumpets
(1) Christ Coming to Possess the Earth
1 1And I saw 2aanother strong Angel bcoming down out of heaven, clothed with a ccloud; and the 3drainbow was upon His head, and His eface was like the 4sun, and His ffeet like 5pillars of 6fire;
2 And He had in His hand a 1little opened ascroll. And He placed His 2right foot on the sea and the left on the land;
3 And He cried out with a loud voice just as a 1alion broars. And when He cried out, the 2seven cthunders uttered their own voices.
4 And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write, and I heard a avoice out of heaven saying, bSeal the things which the seven thunders spoke, and do not write them.
5 And the Angel whom I saw astanding on the sea and on the land blifted up His right hand to heaven
6 And 1swore by Him who alives forever and ever, who bcreated heaven and the 2things in it, and the earth and the 3things in it, and the sea and the 4things in it, that there shall be 5cdelay no longer,
7 But in the 1days of the voice of the aseventh angel when he is about to trumpet, then the 2mystery of God 3is 4finished, as He has bannounced the 5good news to His own slaves the prophets.
(2) John Charged to Prophesy Again
8 And the avoice which I heard out of heaven, I heard again speaking with me and saying, Go, take the opened bscroll in the hand of the Angel who is cstanding on the sea and on the land.
9 And I went to the Angel and told Him to give me the little scroll. And He said to me, Take it and adevour it, and it will make your stomach bitter, but in your mouth it will be as bsweet as honey.
10 And I took the little scroll out of the hand of the Angel and 1devoured it, and it was as 2sweet as honey in my mouth; and when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter.
11 And 1they said to me, You must prophesy 2again over many apeoples and nations and tongues and kings.
