He’s Got the Whole World at His Feet

There are a lot of things happening on earth I don’t like, but I serve a big God, and in The Book of Revelation we learn everything we do matters, and we will give an account to that big God for everything we have done. 

When people act like they are big and God is small…

But as we will see today, God is not small; He is big, much bigger than we imagine! 

Read Rev. Chapter 10       He’s Got the Whole World at His Feet!            Let’s Pray! 

The Mighty Angel Roars Like a Lion!                                       V. 1-4

The Book of Revelation is about Jesus before it is about events!  The first purpose of Revelation is for Jesus to increase in our life while the false god of self we have enthroned decreases! 

“He must increase, but I must decrease.”                -John 3:30

But this Man, after offering one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God. He is now waiting until His enemies are made His footstool.                                                                                          -Hebrews 10:12-13

When we think of Jesus, we should have two sights ever before us:

The Lamb of God who takes away our sins!

The Lion of Judah who roars to put the fear of God into us! 

The Mighty Angel Announces God’s Plan is almost Complete               V. 5-7

Seventy weeks here means 490 years, with each week referring to 7 years. Genesis tells us Jacob worked a week, or seven years, for his wife Rachel.


Daniel 9:24 says that at the end of the 490 years everlasting righteousness will be brought in, with no more sin and rebellion (The millennium described in Rev. 20). Verse 25 says after the decree is made to rebuild Jerusalem 69 weeks, or 483 of the 490 years, will go by and then Messiah will be cut off.

Daniel 9:27 tells us the coming Antichrist will make a covenant with many for that week (seven years), but in the middle of the week, or 3 and a half years in, he’ll desecrate the Jewish Temple. But then his destruction is decreed! 

The interval of time was the time between the first 483 years of Daniel’s prophecy and the end of the 490th year when the Desolator is destroyed. When the bowls are poured out, they will be poured out in rapid fire succession and then Jesus Christ will return to earth!   


Now think of these things in terms of a stopwatch counting up to 490 years. 

“For I do not want you, brethren, to be uninformed of this mystery, lest you be wise in your own estimation, that a partial hardening has happened to Israel until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in.”         -Romans 11:25

John Digests the Little Scroll                                                     V. 8-11

The little scroll seems to contain the sum of Revelation’s message so far – comfort to those who believe, terror to those who won’t repent. 

The message John received is for everybody, and John was to be a messenger to everybody! 

According to the Bible, it is not unworthiness that keeps anyone from being saved, it is unwillingness that keeps people from being saved.

If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved! For with the heart one believes unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.                                -Romans 10:9-10
