8 And [kai] the voice [phone] which [hos] I heard [akouo] from [ek] heaven [ouranos] spake [laleo] unto [meta] me [emou] again, [palin] and [kai] said, [lego] Go [hupago] and take [lambano] the little book [bibliaridion] which [ho] is open [anoigo] in [en] the hand [cheir] of the angel [aggelos] which [ho] standeth [histemi] upon [epi] the sea [thalassa] and [kai] upon [epi] the earth. [ge]    KJV-Interlinear



8 And the voice which I heard from heaven, I heard again speaking with me, and saying, "Go, take the book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the land."    NASB



The voice which instructed John to not write, again speaks to John, and instructs him to go to the angel that earlier descended down from heaven, and was standing on the earth and the sea.


John becomes a participant, representing himself as a participant in the events which are still future (for us).  John as a believer in Christ, and as a member of the Royal Family, as we are referred to in this dispensation of the Church Age, likewise extends as a symbolic reference to us (you and me), also.


And this symbolism again is reinforced by what John is about to do.


He is told to take the little book, ‘bibliaridion,’ which is a reference to a booklet or a summary of something larger than itself.


The angel is standing on the earth and the sea, representing total coverage of the world.  He is holding the book, which is representative of the summary of all of Gods plan.  In the book is writing, Gods writing.  Gods plan is in writing and has been since eternity past.  His plan is in writing and once written, will not change.


Have you ever gone to a book store, and purchased a book.  It is a written document.  You read the story and the story never changes, because it is written in a book that you now own and possess.


That is Gods plan.  He wrote it down, the book is now open, and therefore revealed to all of humanity, especially to us in the Church Age, for this is our era right now.  No matter how many times you read it, the end result is always the same, the content is always the same.


And John is told to take the book, to take possession of the book.  He is not going to give it back, but will keep it, and do with it as he is instructed.  So too, you have the scriptures, but do you do with them as you are instructed?


And this is what you have before you, Bible doctrine.  You have been given Gods word, to study and to learn, to consume and to possess as yours.  Some of it is going to agree with you and some of it is not going to agree with you. Such is life.  But Gods plan is what it is and whether you agree or not, His plan will continue right along without so much as a hiccup.


To accept Gods word will be a wonderful benefit to you.  To reject it or remain indifferent to it, will make life of no benefit to you.  That choice is always yours to make. 


And so we have still a brief pause before the end, which has already been announced, occurs.  Listen and learn and know and understand, lest your life becomes bitter as it is about to become for all who are going to be judged.


It is far better for you to be blessed than to be judged.
