Revelation chapter six speaks of the opening of the seal judgments by Jesus. This is also the time that Daniel refers to in chapter nine of his book as the 70th week. It occurs in the last half of the tribulation.
Each seal represents a divine command given by God the Father. Jesus receives the ordinances from the hand of God, and God the Holy Ghost uses men to speak the words of execution in the earth. All messages given to God's people should be divinely ordained and spoken exactly as God wants them to be spoken.
Follow me in Revelation chapter 10 verses 8-11;
8And the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which stands on the sea and on the earth.
In verse 8 God has given his divine instructions to Jesus, who opens them and gives them to John. The opening of the book actually represents spiritual insight which he gives into God's plan. The insight gives us the direction needed to fight the battles which we must fight on the earth to get the victory over satan.
9And I went to the angel, and said to him, Give me the little book. And he said to me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make your belly bitter, but it shall be in your mouth sweet as honey. 10And I took the little book out of the angel's hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
John had to make an effort to take the book. The man or woman whom God uses must spend time in prayer seeking the face of God for direction for the people of God. Notice John verbally spoke to Jesus to give him the book. We must actively and aggressively seek insight into the word of God.
11And he said to me, You must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
The man or woman of God must share what God gives with his people. God does not give insight into his word just for our own personal satisfaction. We as responsible stewards of the word must put it to use as an investment into the edification of the saints.
Rev 10:3 3And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
Jesus gives insight through God the Holy Ghost. The Holy Ghost is the actual power of the word of God. Whenever he shows up it is in the form of thunder. The brightness of his glory is as lightning.
