Revelation 14 Chapter Study

1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.

John sees Jesus (the Lamb) standing on Mt. Zion with 144,000 who have the Father’s name written in the mind.

2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:

3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

A voice from heaven as the sound of many waters and a great thunder, and a voice of harps singing a new song before the throne; nevertheless no one could learn the song except the 144,000. These 144,000 were redeemed from the earth; therefore they were of the family of man.

4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

Of the 144,000, they were not defiled with women, meaning they were virgins. This could also mean they were never defiled by false gods. They followed Jesus wherever He goes; they were redeemed from mankind and are the first-fruits unto the Father and to Jesus Christ. These came up in the first resurrection. They had no guile found in their mouth and were without fault before God’s throne. There are plenty ideas of who these people are, but no ideas from which we can directly read or reason with, therefore we will not speculate. What we do know is that these 144,000 are the main entourage for Jesus Christ. They go wherever He goes.

6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Chapter Study on Revelation 14

Another angel came flying in with an everlasting gospel to preach to everyone who lives on the earth. His message: fear God and give God the glory because God’s judgment is coming.

8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

It appears angels are just popping out with a message and then leaving. This angel says “Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city…” Babylon has made plenty of people through plenty of generations drunk off the wine of the wrath of her fornication. This is not fornication as between man and woman, no, no, this is fornication between God and false gods. Many people are drunk with idol worship and false gods.

9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

The third angel to come through makes a decree I especially took note on and everyone who reads should take special note on. The decree was that if any man/woman worships the beast and the image that the beast created and demanded everyone worship; further if anyone takes the mark of the beast, they are in serious trouble. Any that does this, they will drink from a cup of wine from God, the wrath of God, which will be poured out without mixture. This wine is the cup of God’s indignation. God can get indignant, that is having a righteous anger. And will put all who worship the beast and the beast image into the lake of fire.

11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

This is worth really studying, praying, and watching out for. We can help but ultimately that decision is in your hands. The beast and the image you can learn again by reading and studying Revelation 13!

12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

This is the equation for salvation, keep God’s commandments and believe on Jesus His Christ.

13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

John looks and sees what appears to be a man on a throne in a cloud, appears to be Jesus. He had a golden crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand.

15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

An angel came and told Jesus to blast. Thrust in your sickle and reap because the earth is ripe and ready for harvest. Really quickly, let’s go into Matthew chapter 13 and pick up a few scriptures to help us understand verses 15 and 16.

Matthew 13:

37 He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;

38 The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one;

39 The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.

Jesus says that He sowed good seed. Jesus planted good men women and children in the field, which is the world. However, the enemy, the devil, also planted tares behind what Jesus planted, wicked men women and children and they all grew together in the field. The angels are the reapers, and at the end of the world, the harvest, they will reap the good seed, which are the children of the kingdom of God.

With this added understanding, we know Jesus is getting ready to reap what He sowed. We’re going back to Revelation 14 now!

Revelation 14 Scriptures:

17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

Another angel comes into the temple in Heaven and this angel had a sharp sickle in hand. Another angel came out from the altar (this angel had power over fire) and the angel again cries out to the angel that also had a sharp sickle to thrust in his sharp sickle, this time gather in the clusters of the vine of the earth. All of God’s Holy Angels are ready to see the full vision God had for His creation. The grapes are fully ripe.

19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

When Jesus thrust in His sickle the first time, He reaped the good seed to protect them, the second thrust was by the angel who had a sickle in hand and his thrust was for destroying the wicked. The wicked were cast into the great winepress of the wrath of God and walked over or trodden under foot. The blood of the winepress came up to the horses bridles and stretched forward up to 75 miles. That is a lake of blood full of men who decide to war against God and His immortal host! This is a terrible time.

Isaiah 63 talks more about the winepress from Jesus perspective

Isaiah chapter 63:

1Who is this that cometh from Edom, with dyed garments from Bozrah? this that is glorious in his apparel, travelling in the greatness of his strength? I that speak in righteousness, mighty to save.

Jesus is the one that speaks righteousness, and is mighty to save. Jesus is coming from Edom or Bozrah with dyed garments, that is from the plains of Megiddo from the great battle.

2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?

3 I have trodden the winepress alone; and of the people there was none with me: for I will tread them in mine anger, and trample them in my fury; and their blood shall be sprinkled upon my garments, and I will stain all my raiment.

The question was asked why are your clothes red like they have been drenched in a winefat. Jesus replies, I have trodden the winepress, with so many against Jesus, it felt like He was alone. He tread them in His anger and trample them in His fury, and their blood sprinkled on His clothing.

4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.

6 And I will tread down the people in mine anger, and make them drunk in my fury, and I will bring down their strength to the earth.

Jesus sounds sad that He had to tread them down or He could be sad that He had to stain His clothes. Either way, He tramples His enemies in fury and in His anger and this is what is called the winepress. Very sad accounts but let us go back to Revelation 14:

We’ll end with a Psalm to convince us of Jesus anger towards those who are against Him.

Psalm 118:

8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.

9 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.

10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord will I destroy them.

11 They compassed me about; yea, they compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

12 They compassed me about like bees: they are quenched as the fire of thorns: for in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

13 Thou hast thrust sore at me that I might fall: but the Lord helped me.

14 The Lord is my strength and song, and is become my salvation.

In the name of Jesus, God will destroy all that come against Him at the time of His Second Coming; Jesus is the strength and song of the saints, and has become our salvation.
