10 And [kai] I took [lambano] the little book [bibliaridion] out of [ek] the angel's [aggelos] hand, [cheir] and [kai] ate [katesthio] it [autos] up; [katesthio] and [kai] it was [en] in [en] my [mou] mouth [stoma] sweet [glukus] as [hos] honey: [meli] and [kai] as soon as [hote] I had eaten [phago] it, [autos] my [mou] belly [koilia] was bitter. [pikraino] KJV-Interlinear



10 And I took the little book out of the angel's hand and ate it, and it was in my mouth sweet as honey; and when I had eaten it, my stomach was made bitter. NASB



John was told to eat, and he did not hesitate in eating the little book. John was obedient to the instructions given him.


He did not question. He did not hesitate. He did not doubt, but trusted the one giving him the instructions.


The act of eating, symbolizes the assimilation of the Word of God, Ps 19:10; Jer 15:16; Ezek 3:1-3.


The result of bitterness symbolizes the sadness one should have over the judgment of those who are to be judged, Rom. 9:1-3.


Look around you today and see just how many people seem to be coasting through life without a clue as to what it is all about.


People look no further than their own plans and wishes and activities for life. They presume that what they think and say and do in life is all that there is to life.


People deceive others to get ahead. People take advantage of others to get ahead. People pretend and do nothing in order to slide by in life. People maintain an indifferent attitude toward God, Christ, and doctrine, seeing no value in them. People look no further than whatever it is that they are doing in their Christian life (singing songs, praying, hoping, reciting verses, speaking with what they believe is holy language), but ignoring Gods mandate to study and learn, and all the while believing that their efforts (works) are sufficient to satisfy Gods expectations of them.


And everyone is wrong, seriously wrong.


The scriptures speak very clearly of the path to spiritual maturity and blessing, and that to those who actually pursue it, is very sweet to the soul.  However, when looking around and seeing so many who are ignoring something that is so simple, brings a sadness because they will lose out on a tremendous life now, as well as in eternity.


God advises us of the sweet and sour of life. His words are true. Unfortunately too many will never understand this principle.
