Divisions (run-on sentence OK, direct verbiage from Scripture):

1
10:1-11
Another Mighty Angel and the Little Scroll
Principle:
God’s Word is sweet at first, but sometimes sours in our bellies as we experience disappointment to apply it.
2
11:1-14
The Two Witnesses
Principle:
God empowers those He calls to accomplish His mission.
3
11:15-18
The 7th Trumpet
Principle:
All events of history are preparing mankind and the earth for Christ’s reign.

 

Subject Sentence (10-word sentence with proper structure):

John sees a scroll, two witnesses and the seventh trumpet.
Mighty Angel announces seventh trumpet, coming after two witnesses prophesy.

 

Aim:

TCMATK the time is now to place faith in Jesus, follow Him and bring others to Christ in order to avoid this coming judgment.

 

Application:

1
Describe a time when you have experienced the sweetness of God that turned sour in your belly.  (When I became saved His Word and the Gospel were sweet and I wanted to share them with others.  The sourness came with rejection that led me to feel like I didn’t need to share and I lost the enthusiasm to do so.  I’m praying for opportunities to share with others, now.)
2
What task is God calling you to perform on mission for Him and how is He empowering you to accomplish His will?  (SS Teacher – I spend time with Him to prepare before class and experience His HS giving me ideas both while I’m preparing and during class.  BSF GL – I meet with Him over my homiletics and my lesson, I pray for my Group Members and the Leadership Team.  He unearths treasure from His Word and the comments of other people and gives me beautiful glimpses of Him throughout each meeting.)
3
What are you doing to prepare for the coming reign of Jesus Christ?  (I’m developing my relationship with Him, falling more crazy head-over-heels in love with Him, spending time with Him, learning from Him…)
