Revelation 14 Commentary

(14:1-5) The Lamb and the 144,000 - Chapter 13 describes the onslaught of evil that will occur when Satan and his helpers control the world. Chapter 14 gives a glimpse into eternity to show believers what awaits them if they endure. Their suffering will not be meaningless; it will only be a prelude into eternity with God. This chapter explains what will happen to those who refuse to receive the mark of the beast, and what will happen eventually to the beast and his servants.

(14:6-13) The Three Angels - In this section, three angels contrast the destiny of believers with that of unbelievers. This is a transition between the picture of the coming triumph of God’s people and the pouring out of the seven bowl judgments upon the earth. God will judge evil.

(14:14-20) The Harvest of the Earth - The final verses of this chapter give two visions of final judgment. Verses 14-16 describe the harvest of the earth compared to a grain harvest. Verses 17-20 picture the horror of this final judgment of God upon sin.

Dave Burnette's Life Application

Have Faith

Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we Continue in the book of Revelation with Chapter 14 and in today's text we see the Lord giving John a glimpse of eternity to show believers what is waiting for them. The Lord wins the Battle over the enemy described in Chapter 13. In making application we can see over the last few chapters the need to endure through trials and challenges. The Lord is in control and holds victory in His hand. Joy comes in the morning and we just need to hold on through the night and trust in Him by faith. Seeing the recorded future should give those of little faith something to grasp if they simply believe the Bible. How about you? Are you going through a trial or challenging time? Have faith. Believe the Bible. Faith cometh by hearing and hearing from the Word of God. Victory in your life will come if you just hold on. Have Faith.


Revelation 14

Revelation 14

 1And 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.

 2And 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:

 3And 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.

 4These 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.

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

 6And 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,

 7Saying 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.

 8And 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.

 9And 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,

 10The 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:

 11And 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.

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

 13And 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.

 14And 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.

 15And 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.

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

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

 18And 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.

 19And 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.

 20And 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.
