    Revelation 10:

    I saw another strong angel coming down out of heaven, clothed with a cloud; and the rainbow was upon his head, and his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire; and he had in his hand a little book which was open. He placed his right foot on the sea and his left on the land; and he cried out with a loud voice, as when a lion roars; and when he had cried out, the seven peals of thunder uttered their voices. When the seven peals of thunder had spoken, I was about to write; and I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Seal up the things which the seven peals of thunder have spoken and do not write them.”
    Have you ever speculated what the seven peals of thunder stated?

    Why was John told to seal (not just not write) but signifying the placement of a seal of authority over what was said that it not even be shared.

    What judgment could be so profound, so ???? that it remains yet to be realized?

    Is it righteous to even speculate what John was told to not write about, to seal it up?

    Nothing new here, don't you think?:

    1 I must needs glory, though it is not expedient; but I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord.
    2 I know a man in Christ, fourteen years ago (whether in the body, I know not; or whether out of the body, I know not; God knoweth), such a one caught up even to the third heaven.
    3 And I know such a man (whether in the body, or apart from the body, I know not; God knoweth),
    4 how that he was caught up into Paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter. 2 Cor 12

    ....and I wouldn't even know where to begin to speculate on what was said...... :)

    The Apostle was told to, seal them. that is good enough for me, Speculation is futile and foolish!

    I think it reasonable to infer the statements were for a specific time - not now.

    God will inform us of the statements when He decides it is time.

    I don't think it 'unrighteous' to speculate, but I find it pointless. I doubt we will figure it out, and even if we do, God's duck will not be lowered on a string and give us each $50.00. (Impromptu trivia test.)
