2. The Little Book

Revelation 10: 9 -10

And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. 
And 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.

Bible commentators are divided in their opinions about the mighty angel with the little book in Revelation 10:9. Some believe that the messenger or angel is a literal angel – a being of exalted rank, like the seraphim or cherubim. Others hold that the mighty angel is Christ because, they say, the description here is inappropriate for a mere creature. I suggest here it is like sin, it is honey at first but later leads to bitterness in the belly and in your soul.

Please do not be deceived by sin. Although sin may look fun at the beginning, the Bible teaches that sin leads to death.  Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Also, consider Proverbs 3:7-8.

Proverbs 3

Do not be wise in your own eyes;
    fear the Lord and shun evil.
This will bring health to your body
    and nourishment to your bones.
