REVELATION 10 / EZEKIEL 3 – A DUAL PERSPECTIVE ON THE FINAL MYSTERY OF GOD

 AND HE SAID UNTO ME, “SON OF MAN, CAUSE THY BELLY TO EAT, AND FILL THY BOWELS WITH THIS (SCROLL) THAT I GIVE THEE. THEN DID I EAT IT; AND IT WAS IN MY MOUTH AS HONEY FOR SWEETNESS” (Ezek3:3KJV; cf. Rev10:4-11)

 This is one of a number of prophetic passages that were drawn to my attention during the ten or so days I referred to in earlier posts as my spiritual encounter, during which time I would open the Scriptures and interpret certain passages in quite a new way, humanly speaking by applying a precise and highly literal approach to the original Hebrew or Greek. I hint at what I believe the above verse and its broader context may be referring to in my book, though I do not claim currently to be certain of the matter. Purely at the personal level, what I have come to understand to be God’s providential intentions for humanity tastes sweet as honey in the mouth; yet once ingested, the narrower traditional outcomes I had previously anticipated leave a decidedly sour sensation in in the abdominals (Greek: koilian – Rev10:10), as if ready for expulsion.  If I am right, the final mystery of God would pertain to a disclosure  regarding divine providence (see also:  book of Enoch  chapter 93 verse 10)
