Bible Gateway : Revelation 10:2-4;: "He had a little scroll open in his hand. And he set his right foot on the sea, and his left foot on the land, and called out with a loud voice, like a lion roaring. When he called out, the seven thunders sounded. And when the seven thunders had sounded, I was about to write, but I heard a voice from heaven saying, 'Seal up what the seven thunders have said, and do not write it down.'"
This past year a certain somebody, who will deservedly remain un-named here, wrote a book on the end times with the sub-title "How Could Everybody Be So Wrong about Biblical Prophecy". No, I did not waste my time reading this book, as I was already familiar with this writer's views on eschatology. I confess a certain skepticism and dismay came to mind in reading that sub-title. There is a degree of arrogance and lack of humility in that sub-title that has been characteristic of this particular writer's minstry in the past.
The passage from Revelation 10, regarding the seven thunders, should be enough to give all in the different camps of eschatology pause. Yes, we can know true things about the end times, but this passage insures we will not know everything about the end times until it happens. John tells us there were things he was told that he was prohibited from writing down. If we are not humble when wrestling through the things that were written down, this passage should make us humble, no matter how much we think we have the end times figured out.
