After the seven thunders speak and John is told not to reveal what is said, he says that the mystery of God would be fulfilled, just as he announced to his servants the prophets. When this angel appears, it says he has a book in his hand. At this point in the chapter, John is given the book to eat. It tasted sweet as honey, but was poisonous or toxic and made John's stomach bitter. So what happened here. A book has words in it that give some kind of information. So it will not be the book as such that is toxic but the words or, to be more exact, what the words say. They also have to be toxic to John. This is John as a servant and prophet of God, so the words should be the opposite to the Gospel. Revelations 10 describes it as a scroll that tastes sweet but is bitter to the stomach. Before we look at some out workings of the false gospel, I want to talk about an intermediate step.

It is called the gospel of Christian Universalism. “Christian Universalism” is the position that all humankind
will ultimately be saved through Jesus, whether faith is professed in him in this life. It claims that God's qualities of love, mercy, justice, etc., require that all people be saved and that eternal punishment cannot exist. That God's love is unconditional. There is no denying that God's love is unconditional, but salvation from the consequences of sin is very much conditional. It is this denying of conditions that allows a doctrine to take any form it wants to. Some examples are 1) Once you have salvation, you cannot lose it. The Scriptures say you can and in certain cases can lead to no chance of repenting from rebellion. 2) Unity and tolerance is everything. This quest for unity, the unity that Paul talks about, but unholy unity, leads to compromise, the doctrine of accommodation. These compromises usually comes from giving importance to our human traditions. Happiness and self-fulfilment idols. That if we follow the agenda of giving, praying, reading the word etc. we will not get problems from any area of our life. This leads to the loss of our “Fear of God”. The main reason the 144,000 preach Fear god, judgment is at hand.
These characteristics of God become an issue because they have to exclude the characteristics that they do not like. God is a judge and there will be consequences for our actions. That there is a requirement for obedience which starts with confession and repentance. If you take only the positive aspects of God, then there is no need for repentance. Let us look at a few of the common out workings.
