Though aspartame,an artificial sweetener,is known to be several times sweeter than table sugar yet it leaves a bitter aftertaste to some people.The reason is out of this post’s coverage.
The focus is how the words of God can also be sweet yet bitter:
“So I went to the angel and said to him, “Give me the little book.” And he said to me, “Take and eat it; and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.””-Revelation 10:9
Above passage is about the conversation between John and an angel.
Let’s read the experience of John after eating the little book(scroll):
“Then I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. But when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter.” Rev 10:10
Well if that was the experience of John as regards God’s words,then we can’t expect less if we are ‘eating’ the true words of God.
If every time you hear God’s words,it is usually sweet and sweet,there is something wrong somewhere!
True words of God are sweeter than honey and at the same time bitter than aspartame!
The reception of God’s words may be sweet but very bitter when they are applied to our lives.He that doesn’t mind the bitterness will enjoy the inherent sweetness in God’s words.What a paradox!
