启示录10:1~11

天使与小书卷

1 我又看见一位大力的天使从天上降下来,身披云彩,头上有彩虹,脸像太阳,两脚像火柱一样,

Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars.

2 手里拿着展开的小书卷。他的右脚踏在海上,左脚踏在地上,

He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land,

3 大声呼喊,好像狮子吼叫。他呼喊的时候,就有七雷发声说话。

and he gave a loud shout like the roar of a lion. When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke.

4 七雷说话的时候,我正要写下来,就听见有声音从天上出来,说:“七雷所说的你要封住,不可写出来!”

And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven say, “Seal up what the seven thunders have said and do not write it down.”

5 我看见那站在海上和地上的天使,向天举起右手来,

Then the angel I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven.

6 指着那活到永永远远,创造天和天上之物、地和地上之物、海和海中之物的上帝起誓,说:“必不再延迟了!

And he swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it, and said, “There will be no more delay!

7 到第七位天使吹号的时候,上帝向他的仆人众先知所宣告的奥秘,就要实现了。”

But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.”

8 我先前听见那从天上来的声音又对我说:“你去,把那站在海上和地上的天使手中展开的书卷拿过来。”

Then the voice that I had heard from heaven spoke to me once more: “Go, take the scroll that lies open in the hand of the angel who is standing on the sea and on the land.”

9 我就走到天使那里,请他把小书卷给我。他对我说:“你拿着,吃下去。它必使你肚子苦涩,但是口里却好像蜜一样甘甜。”

So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, “Take it and eat it. It will turn your stomach sour, but ‘in your mouth it will be as sweet as honey.’”

10 我把小书卷从天使手中拿过来,吃了,在口里果然甘甜如蜜;但是吃完之后,我肚子就觉得苦涩。

I took the little scroll from the angel’s hand and ate it. It tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth, but when I had eaten it, my stomach turned sour.

11 他们又对我说:“论到许多民族、邦国、方言和君王,你必须再说预言。”

Then I was told, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, languages and kings.”

与第六印和第七印之间的情况类似,第六号和第七号之间也有一个插段,所出现的是一个小书卷和两位见证人,其内容也以针对信徒的情况为主。本章描述大力的天使将小书卷递给约翰,要他吃下去:

1.大力天使降临的状况(1~4:这小书卷由一位“大力的天使”从天上带下来,而约翰则受命传讲。根据经文的描述,这大力的天使“身披云彩”(上帝同在的象征),“头上有彩虹”(上帝恩典之约的象征),“脸像太阳,两脚像火柱一样”(荣耀与力量的象征),显然这不是一般的天使,而是揉合了上帝、基督和使者的形象,或者就是基督或上帝的代表,就如第1章所看见的一样(参1:13~16)。他手中拿着一卷展开的书卷,是关于末世审判的预言。他大声呼喊如同狮子,表示人要留心听这审判的预言。之后,天上有“七雷”发声回应,表示上帝公义忿怒的声音,祂将要执行的审判是可畏的。

2.大力天使奇妙的誓言(5~7:天使严肃地宣告,上帝的审判即将发生,正如他所说:“上帝向他的仆人众先知所宣告的奥秘,就要实现了。”这是启示录最重要的经文之一,表示上帝的国将要临到、完全实现在地上,这是上帝在圣经中启示的应验,其内容包括从11:1~22:5所记载的一切事。因为第七位天使吹号时,上帝借先知所预言的事都一一成就了,上帝的奥秘完全揭开,不再是奥秘了!

3.大力天使命约翰吃书卷(8~11:约翰接受指示,从天使手中接过书卷,并且吃了下去,这表示消化。在消化的时候,心中甚觉甜美畅快,然而在肚子里却变得苦涩。从前,先知耶利米和以西结也有过类似的经历(参耶15:16;结3:1~3)。书卷的内容因为包含着福音,自然会口中甜蜜,然而上帝良善的背后仍有审判,所以约翰面对上帝审判的预言,肚子就觉得苦涩了。


约翰得了上帝的预言,却感到甜蜜又苦涩,可见上帝的话是吊诡的,当人在读上帝话语时,不会只感到舒服畅快,也不会只感到沉重难担,上帝的话既滋润我们,也责备我们的罪,并允许我们经历苦楚与不安!
