Excerpt From The Atlantean Necronomicon: KUTULU
We have received quite a few emails concerning The Atlantean Necronomicon. I would like to personally thank everyone who has supported us in this endeavor. Recently, we released an excerpt from the book that can be viewed at the following link:
We thought that it may be good to make one more section of the book available. The following is an excerpt from the Atlantean Necronomicon, entitled KUTULU:
Dimension: The understanding of how to alter karma. The projection of ones’ will on reality.
Mad Arab’s Testimony: “I have traveled beneath the Seas, in search of the Palace of Our Master, and found the stone of monuments of vanquished civilizations, and deciphered the writings of some of these; while still others remain mysteries to any man who lives. And these civilizations were destroyed because of the knowledge contained in this book.”
E.A. Budge mentioned in his writings that ‘LAMASHTU had to cross the river of hell, known as the great World-Ocean.’ Once we have employed the menstruating goddess energies we are to then move on into the “World-Ocean.” Notice what is mentioned by Simon in the Necronomicon’s Introduction, under the topic SUMERIA:
“The Underworld in ancient Sumer was known by many names, among them ABSU or “Abyss”, sometimes as Nar Mattaru, the great Underworld Ocean, and also as Cutha or KUTU as it is called in the Enuma Elish (the Creation Epic of the Sumerians). The phonetic similarity between Cutha and KUTU and Chthonic, as well as Cthulhu, is striking. Judging by a Sumerian grammar at hand, the word KUTULU or Cuthalu (Lovecraft’s’s Cthulhu Sumerianised) would mean “The Man of KUTU (Cutha); the Man of the Underworld; Satan or Shaitan, as he is known to the Yezidis (whom Crowley considered to be the remnants of the Sumerian Tradition)”.
Out of all the deities discussed in the Simon Necronomicon, KUTULU remains to be one of the few entities mentioned in the Simon Necronomicon that does not appear in the Sumerian mythologies. KUTULU is a derivative of Cthulhu, a cosmic entity created by the infamous fiction writer, H.P. Lovecraft. Detailed information about Cthulhu can be found in Lovecraft’s tale “The Call of Cthulhu.” It is in this myth, created in the mind of H.P. Lovecraft, that Cthulhu is described as “dead but dreaming” in the city of R’lyeh. Lovecraft’s Call of Cthulhu describes the entity as having attributes similar to a dragon. Notice what is mentioned in the Mythos:
“Above these apparent hieroglyphics was a figure of evident pictorial intent, though its impressionistic execution forbade a very clear idea of its nature. It seemed to be a sort of monster, or symbol representing a monster, of a form which only a diseased fancy could conceive. If I say that my somewhat extravagant imagination yielded simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature, I shall not be unfaithful to the spirit of the thing. A pulpy, tentacled head surmounted a grotesque and scaly body with rudimentary wings; but it was the general outline of the whole which made it most shockingly frightful. Behind the figure was a vague suggestions of a Cyclopean architectural background.”
The myth: continues:
“In the elder time chosen men had talked with the entombed Old Ones in dreams, but then something happened. The great stone city R’lyeh, with its monoliths and sepulchres, had sunk beneath the waves; and the deep waters, full of the one primal mystery through which not even thought can pass, had cut off the spectral intercourse. But memory never died, and the high-priests said that the city would rise again when the stars were right. Then came out of the earth the black spirits of earth, mouldy and shadowy, and full of dim rumours picked up in caverns beneath forgotten sea-bottoms. But of them old Castro dared not speak much. He cut himself off hurriedly, and no amount of persuasion or subtlety could elicit more in this direction. The size of the Old Ones, too, he curiously declined to mention. Of the cult, he said that he thought the centre lay amid the pathless desert of Arabia, where Irem, the City of Pillars, dreams hidden and untouched. It was not allied to the European witch-cult, and was virtually unknown beyond its members. No book had ever really hinted of it, though the deathless Chinamen said that there were double meanings in the Necronomicon of the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred which the initiated might read as they chose, especially the much-discussed couplet”
Some have dismissed the idea of working with “Cthulhu” in magickal rituals, since many believe that this entity is an invention of the writer Lovecraft. The Initiate of the Necronomicon Tradition knows what the layman does not, and recognizes these archetypes as chthonic and cosmic forces. Happily, the Necronomicon Tradition reveals that KUTULU is a real deity. Before validating the existence of KUTULU, it is important that we review another passage from the Call of Cthulhu:
“They worshipped, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men, and who came to the young world out of the sky. Those Old Ones were gone now, inside the earth and under the sea; but their dead bodies had told their secrets in dreams to the first men, who formed a cult which had never died. This was that cult, and the prisoners said it had always existed and always would exist, hidden in distant wastes and dark places all over the world until the time when the great priest Cthulhu, from his dark house in the mighty city of R’lyeh under the waters, should rise and bring the earth again beneath his sway. Some day he would call, when the stars were ready, and the secret cult would always be waiting to liberate him.”
Simon defines KUTULU in his Introduction to the Simon Necronomicon as ‘the Man of the Underworld.’ We can determine that KUTULU is the spouse of LAMASHTU, as she crosses the “river of hell,” (Nar Marratu) to meet him. E.A. Budge, quoted earlier, equates this “river of hell” as Nar Marratu. The CHART OF COMPARISONS, which appears in the introductory essays of the Simon Necronomicon, equates Nar Mattaru to the Abyss and Out of Space. This means that KUTULU can also be defined as the Man of Nar Mattaru.
While the Simon Necromicon mentions Nar Mattaru in various parts of the text, there are two passages specifically that reveal the work of KUTULU in the Necronomicon Tradition. Both of these passages can be found in the section entitled, THE CONJURATION OF THE WATCHER:
“And the Lord of the Watchers dwells, it is said, among the Wastes of the IGIGI, and only Watches and never raises the Sword or fights the idimmi, save when the Covenant is invoked by none less than the Elder Gods in their Council, like unto the Seven Glorious APHKHALLU.”
Following this is the INVOCATION OF THE WATCHER where we read:
“Rise up, from the old Abyss of NARR MARRATU!”
Many of the qualities attributed to the Watcher in the Simon Necronomicon are possessed by KUTULU. A few examples of this can be seen in the following passages:
“I conjure Thee by…The Veils of Sunken Varloormi” (taken form the Normal Invocation of The Watcher as found on page 72 of the SN)
“KUTULU raises his head and stares up through the Veils of sunken Varloormi..,” (taken from the First Testimony of the Mad Arab found on page 15 of the SN)
“the Watcher appears. with eyes that never lose their stare.” (taken from the SN page 70)
“KUTULU raises his head.., up through the Abyss, and fixes his stare upon me” (taken from the SN page 15)
One of the first lines in the Normal Invocation of the Watcher as found on page 72 of the SN is: “I conjur Thee by the Fire of GIRRA”
“I deliver you to GIRRA .., Lord of the Flames.., of whom even mighty KUTULU has fear! (taken from page 83 of the MAKLU TEXT as found in the SN)
“And the Watcher sometimes appears..,aloft holding the Sword of Flames, and even the Elder Gods are awed thereby” (Taken from page 70 of the SN)
“the corpse KUTULU shakes beneath the Earth, and our Master ENKI is sore afraid.” (taken form page 186 of the SN)
“And the Lord of the Watchers dwells, it is said among the wastes of the IGIGI…” (Taken from page 70 of the SN)
We can safely assume that KUTULU is the Watcher. The Mad Arab states that ‘the Lord of the Watchers dwells in the Wastes of the IGIGI. The IGIGI are the azonei, also known as the realm of fixed stars. Lovecraft also describes the Old Ones as coming from the regions of Outer Space. The Mad Arab mentions that the Lord of the Watchers “never raises the Sword or fights the idimmi, save when the Covenant is invoked by none less than the Elder Gods in their Council, like unto the Seven Glorious APHKHALLU.”
This is a key aspect in understanding who KUTULU is in the Necronomicon Tradition. The Lord of the Watchers never raises his Sword unless the Covenant is invoked by “none less than the Elder Gods.” This would mean that the Lord of the Watchers, or KUTULU, must have a place amongst the Ancient Ones, as they appear in the Simon Necronomicon. We see similar attributes in the Lovecraftian Cthulhu. Cthulhu is said to be a High Priest of the Old Ones. Although, legend has it that Cthulhu is, “dead but dreaming,” he can still send messages to his “half-human” worshippers through dreams. Parker Ryan confirms the actual antiquity of KUTULU in his essay The Necronomicon Mythos According to HPL:
“There is another interesting bit of information related to the Dragon of the Abyss (which originated in Sumeria) and Khadhulu. This data quite possibly is simple coincidence. On the other hand, it may not be coincidence; there is simply no way to tell yet. It concerns one of the titles of the Dragon, namely the Lord of the Abyss. The title Lord of the Abyss translated into Sumerian is “KUTULU.” Kutu means “Underworld” or “Abyss” and Lu is Sumerian for “Lord” or “Person of importance.” Let’s consider this for a moment: the Sumerian KUTULU is quite similar to Khadhulu in Arabic. Khadhulu is associated with the Dragon in Arab magickal texts. Khadhulu is also identified with the Old Dragon (Shaitan) in the Quran…. Instead I researched until I was able to confirm all the above information, related to the word KUTULU. The fact that the above information on KUTULU is accurate and very suggestive does not PROVE anything. It does, however, generally SUPPORT the idea that KUTULU/Khadhulu has been a part of the magickal traditions of the Near East for a very long time.”
I must state to the reader that the term KUTULU has been greatly debated by occultists and scholars alike. Dan Harms (author of the Necronomicon Files) has even debated some of Parker Ryan’s conclusions concerning the origin of this term. We find it necessary therefore, to show the antiquity of the term KUTULU and where it originated. The term KUTULU is an ancient Chinese term. Studies in Turkic and Mongolic Linguistics by Gerard Clauson, states the following on page 88:
“for example, kutlug was transcribed ku-tu-lu, not ku-lu, even though the “Ancient Chinese” pronunciation of ku was kuat.”
The term kutlug, mentioned above, is a reference to the general Kutluk, an influence force under the Uyghur Empire, and founder of the Ediz Dynasty. The term Kutluk is associated with the phrase, Ai tengride ülüg bulmïsh alp kutluk ulugh bilge, (“Greatly born in moon heaven, victorious, glorious, great and wise”), which is the meaning of the word KUTULU, or as the ancient Chinese translate, ku-tu-lu. This finding actually supports the Cthulhu Mythos. In the Mythos, we find that the Cult of Cthulhu is centered in Arabia with leaders of the organization, who are said to be immortal, dwelling in China. This is a reference to the Uyghur Empire and its central doctrine of Manichaeism. Some influences of this religion are seen in the Al-Azif. There is something else here that is important for us to examine. One definition of the name Kutluk means “born in moon heaven.” This is a Taoist expression and relates to the full moon, when the heavens are considered to be one. We find this to be the case also with the MAGAN Text. Therefore the synthesis of the Lovecraftian and Simon Necronomicon finds its link with KUTULU. This term, which originates with the Ancient Chinese, does find its correspondence with the Cuthins, a calass of priests who knew the arts of divination based on the phases of the Moon. The Sixth and Seventh Books of Moses, page. 82 states:
“”The language and manuscript of this rare and eternal monument of light, and of a higher wisdom, are borrowed from the Cuthans, a tribe of the Samaritans, who were called Cuthim in the Chaldee dialect according to the Talmud, and they were so called in a spirit of derision. They were termed sorcerers, because they taught in Cutha, their original place of abode, and afterward, in Samaria, the Kabala or Higher Magic (Book of Kings). Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar, the chosen arch-priests, are shining lights among the eastern Magicians. They were both kings and teachers – the first Priest-teachers of this glorious knowledge, and from these Samaritan Cuthans – from these omnipotent priests of the fountain of light, who were called Nergal, according to the traditions of Talmud, originated the Gypsies, who, through degeneracy, lost the consecration of their primordial power.”
We find additional insights about the deity KUTULU in the URILIA Text:
“defeaters of the Old Serpent, the Ancient Worm, TIAMAT, the ABYSS, also called KUTULU,..”
This passage clearly indicates that KUTULU is the male aspect of TIAMAT. We discussed earlier how TIAMAT and ERESHKIGAL are all aspects of the ‘menstruating goddess’ LAMMASHTA, which symbolizes the kundalini force. We can then safely assume that KUTULU must be the cardinal force, or male aspect, of the kundalini energy. The reader may want to note that the term “cunt” is a derivative of the word Cutha, and that the term ”cunt” is also a reference to the word kundalini in over a dozen languages. The URILIA Text gives us more information about KUTULU that can help us determine his identity:
“Of all the Gods and Spirits of Abomination, KUTULU only cannot be summoned, for he is the Sleeping Lord. The magician can not hope to have any power over him, but he may be worshipped and for him the proper sacrifices may be made, so that he will spare thee when he rises to the earth. And the times for the sacrifice are the same times as the Sleeping of MARDUK, for this is when Great KUTULU moves. And he is the very Fire of the Earth, and Power of All Magick. When he joins with the Abominations of the Sky, TIAMAT will once more rule the earth!”
The URILIA Text describes KUTULU as “the Fire of The Earth.” This is very interesting since the MAKLU Text mentions that ‘mighty KUTULU’ fears Girra, the Lord of Flames. We also learn in the URILIA Text that when KUTULU shakes ENKI is said to be ‘afraid.’ Therefore, KUTULU is a deity that fears the Fire God, but can also instill fear in ENKI when he moves. With this information when can now determine who or what KUTULU really is.
In the famous Babylonian legend The War of the Seven Wicked Spirits against the Moon, we learn about how the “rebellious genii,” who were once employed by the heavenly deities, caused great trouble in raging war against the Moon god and Hea (ENKI) appeared to be afraid, as none of the celestial forces could diminish their power. Babylonian texts mention the Fire-God, Gibil, as being most effective against the genii. These “rebellious genii” are the seven heads of the dragon. Kenneth Grant mentions this in his book the Nightside of Eden, on page 60-61 we read:
“In the Sumerian phase of mythology, the seven heads of the devouring dragon were represented as follows:
The first by a Scorpion. The second by a Whrling Cross ofr Thunderbolt. The third by a Leopard or Hyena. The fourth by a Serpent. The fifth by a Raging Lion. The sixth by a Rebellious Giant. The seventh by Typhon, Angel of the Fatal Wind.”
While it may appear from our research that KUTULU is a composite deity, we must remember that in the Introduction of the Simon Necronomicon, KUTULU is defined as the “Man of the Underworld.” It would seem likely that the Lord of the Seven Evil Spirits would be the embodiment of KUTULU. In the Babylonian account entitled, The Seven Evil Spirits, we find out just who this Lord really is:
“Destructive storms and evil winds are they,
A storm of evil, presaging the baneful storm,
A storm of evil, forerunner of the baneful storm.
Mighty children, mighty sons are they,
Messengers of Namtar are they,
Throne-bearers of ERESHKIGAL.
The flood driving through the land are they.
Seven gods of the wide heavens,
Seven gods of the broad earth,”
Here we see that Namtar is KUTULU, Namtar in the Book of Calling is described as the ‘Chief Magician of ERESHKIGAL.’ In the MAGAN Text mentions the following concerning Namtar:
.The Dark Waters trembled and roiled.
AZAG-THOTH screamed upon his throne
CUTHALU lurched forth from his sleep
ISHNIGARRAB fled the Palace of Death
IAK SAKKAK trembled in fear and hate
The ANNUNNAKI fled their thrones
The Eye upon the Throne took flight
ERESHKIGAL roared and summoned NAMMTAR
The Magician NAMMTAR she called
But not for pursuit
But for protection.”
The MAGAN Text makes it clear that when ISHTAR arose from the dead, ERESHKIGAL summoned NAMMTAR, which is a symbolic illustration of the kundalini force after the seven steps of self-initiation has been enacted. Later in the text we read:
“Out of the Netherworld they accompanied her
Scorned Queen of the Abyss Wherein All Are Drowned Pronounced a Curse
Solemn and Powerful
Against the Queen of the Rising of the Sun
And NAMMTAR gave it form.”
Once again we see that ERESHKIGAL’s power, or the kundalini-force, is employed by NAMMTAR. In the MAGAN Text we read that it was NAMMTAR who imprisoned ISHTAR:
“ISHTAR raised up Her arm.
ERESHKIGAL summoned NAMMTAR
The Magician NAMMTAR
Saying these words she spoke to him
Go! Imprison her!
Bind her in Darkness!”
The reader may want to note that Namtar fits perfectly with Lovecraft’s description of Cthulhu-being the High Priest of the Old Ones. Namtar represents the masculine or cardinal qualities of the kundalini force. Namtar means fate, and it is here that the Initiate learns how to employ the kundalini energies. This is evident from what appears in the MAGAN Text:
“Scorned Queen of the Abyss Wherein All Are Drowned Pronounced a Curse
…And NAMMTAR gave it form.”
It is here that the Initiate learns something far deeper about the mechanics of the Necronomicon Tradition. KUTULU teaches the Initiate how to transfer magickal energies of initiation onto the uninitiated.
SHAMMASH is described in the Necronomicon as the force that ‘sheds light on dark places.’ SHAMMASH brings clear insight into situations and reveals the inner workings of a mechanical pattern, usually appearing as an emotion, experience, person, object, or thought. These revelations that are inspired by SHAMMASH do not necessarily change the situation, or guarantee that the desired outcome will surface. NAMMTAR, the god of fate, can create this desired change.
These changes can only come about by the “death” of the present experience. The seven heads of the dragon, or forces of change, are always present when the benevolent “death” of an unwanted experience occurs. Cthulhu is said to be, dead but dreaming, as NAMMTAR represents the innate potential of the Initiate to bring about these changes. The teachings of the Necronomicon Tradition clearly indicate that the body of “Man,” not to be confused with mankind, is the abode of the divine. Man is the only animal that can create her/his destiny and reality by use of the imagination. This ability is not a part of the animal kingdom, or the world of mankind.
“And a man may cry out, what have I don’t, and my generation that such evil shall befall me? And it mean nothing, save that a man, being born, is of sadness, for he is of the Blood of the Ancient Ones, but has the Spirit of the Elder Gods breathed into him. And his body goes to the Ancient Ones, but his mind is turned towards the Elder Gods, and this is the War which shall be always fought, unto the last generation of man; for the World is unnatural. When the Great KUTULU rises up and greets the Stars, then the War will be over, and the World be One.”
The “Great KUTULU” rises up to the stars when the Initiate’s desired fate, or imagination, is able to create a reality that can be experienced by gods and mankind alike. The intercourse between, the feminine and masculine aspects of the kundalini force, is the foundation of the Sacred Marriage Rite. European folklore describes this process in the legend of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, or LAMMASHTA (TIAMAT) and the Seven Heads of the Dragon. The readers may want to note that it was the Prince’s kiss upon the “dead” Snow White that awakened her from the coffin.
Cthulhu is the “High Priest” of the Old Ones similar to NAMMTAR being the “Chief Magician” of ERESHKIGAL. According to the Cthulhu Mythos, the Cult of Cthulhu is centered in Arabia and has a worldwide following. There are leaders of the Cult in the mountains of China who are said to be immortal. Interestingly, a namtar in Tibetan Buddhism refers to a sacred biography, and the term is defined as complete liberation. The rising of Cthulhu is said to be a time of liberation as well. Notice what is mentioned in the Call of Cthulhu:
“The time would be easy to know, for then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom.”
This description seems horrific, but it does describe the final hour of this age. The Old Ones and their followers would, “teach men new ways of “killing,” simply means new methods of “spiritual liberation” (namtar).
There can be no denial, even by critics of the Simon Necronomicon Tradition, that the identity of KUTULU is Namtar. Further proof of this can be determined by the words of the Mad Arab written in the URILIA Text:
“KUTULU only cannot be summoned, for he is the Sleeping Lord. The magician can not hope to have any power over him, but he may be worshipped and for him the proper sacrifices may be made, so that he will spare thee when he rises to the earth.”
The Mad Arab mentions that KUTULU can ‘spare the life of those who worship him.’ This passage is very important in our identification of KUTULU as Namtar because it relates to an event that is recorded in Mesopotamian mythology.
In the myth, Atra-hasis and the Flood, we find a similar case of Namtar sparing the lives of those who offered him sacrifice and he is also described as ‘rising up from the depths of the NetherWorld.’ Notice what is mentioned in the myth:
“The land became filled with them and their unceasing clamor. ENLIL said, “The noise men make has become too much; I am losing sleep. Let Namtar come up from the depths of the Netherworld and distribute disease among them, so that their numbers and uproar may be reduced.”..The Herald of Death strewed sickness back and forth across the countryside and many died. A wise man in Shuruppak, by name of Atra-hasis, called upon Enki. “How long are the gods going to plague us? Will illness and death afflict us forever?”..Enki advised Atra-hasis, “Call together the elders. Speak to them; tell them to not worship their gods or take them offerings. Instead, let them build a house for Namtar in Shuruppak and let each household bake a loaf of fresh bread and take it to his door.”..The people listened and did as Enki advised. Namtar’s house was filled with fresh bread and surrounded with its pleasant aroma. The Herald of Death was shamed by the multitude of offerings. He drew back his hand so that disease abated. The people regained their health and the land returned to prosperity.”
The Mad Arab apparently had this myth in mind when he wrote about the need to sacrifice to KUTULU. Earlier, we mentioned that the Watcher and KUTULU were one in the same being. Since the Watcher is the Initiate’s “dead-self” awakening from its slumber by the process of self-initiation, as KUTULU we are Priests and Priestesses of the Ancient Ones, as Lovecraft described concerning Cthulhu. The Mad Arab describes the ‘Lord of the Watcher as dwelling the realms the IGIGI,’ we understand this as the opposite archetype of ENKI, which would be none other than AZAG-THOTH. THE SUPPLEMENTARY MATERIAL TO 777, in the Simon Necronomicon’s Introduction equates ENKI with the realm of the IGIGI.
The Mad Arab supports our observations in The Book of Calling:
“This is further the Book of NAMMTAR, Chief among the Magicians of ERESHKIGAL..This is the Book of the Seven Demons of the Ignited Spheres, of the Seven Demons of the Flame..This is the Book of the Priest, who governeth the Works of Fire!”
The Mysteries of the Necronomicon Tradition reveal that the Practitioners of this Path are KUTULU, as the name represents the personification of those individuals who are descendants of the Jinn, often depicted as Shaitan in religious lore. Their ancestors, the Old Ones, can speak to their descendants through dreams. This is why the rites of the Cult of the Dead, also known as pre-historic ancestor worship, is the key to unlock the Atlantean Mysteries. Our Watcher-Self (known as KUTULU-NAMMTAR in the Qliphotic Tradition) is the alien mind that is so foreign to us that even when the slightest part of it is engaged it creates extraterrestrial phenomena. The ignorant, often times, will mistakenly assume that there is no danger in accessing the alien mind, but what the novice fails to realize is that the alien mind has no regard for the logical and subconscious mental process.
It is in our dreams that we feel, not the light of SHAMMASH, but the light of the Black Sun, Namtar. Namtar reveals to us our fates. When one awakens in the dream, they can change the fate that is given to them by reconfiguring the dream. The comparison between SHAMMASH and the Black Sun NAMMTAR can be easily detected in the world of modern science, where the core of the Earth is approximately the same temperature as the Sun’s surface. The ancients evidently knew the workings of Earth’s core and its heating iron ore (Nergal) and how it related to the consciousness of man. NAMMTAR appears in Sumerian Mythology in other aspects; among these are Irra, and Kingu. Invoking NAMMTAR and working with his energies is a mystical practice. KUTULU/NAMMTAR is the “angel” described in Revelation Chapter 10. Below is the rendering of this account, taken from the King James Version:
10:1 And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire:
10:2 And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,
10:3 And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.
10:4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.
10:5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,
10:6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:
10:7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.
10:8 And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth.
10:9 And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.
10:10 And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.
10:11 And he said unto me, Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.
