Chapter 14

This chapter will revisit the one hundred and forty four thousand Jews that were sealed in chapter seven. We will see a Lamb on Mount Sion with these Jews. We will see the coming judgment of those that took the mark or worshiped the beast. We will also see that it is better to die for faith in Christ and given rest than to worship the beast and face the terrible wrath of Almighty God.

Revelation 14:1 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.

The first thing to look at here is the time period of this event. This event takes place at the end of the tribulation period; we need to remember that it is an interlude or a parenthesis. Jesus Christ does not return to the earth until the end of the tribulation period, therefore the event must take place after He has returned. This is pictured in Revelation 19:11-21.

Now, there is another view of where this event is taking place. Dr. Ryrie states that the 144,000 is the same group introduced in chapter 7 verse 4, though now their work on earth is finished and they are in Heaven.

Revelation 19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Revelation 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

Revelation 19:13 And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.

Revelation 19:14 And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.

Revelation 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Revelation 19:16 And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.

Revelation 19:17 And I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the fowls that fly in the midst of heaven, Come and gather yourselves together unto the supper of the great God;

Revelation 19:18 That ye may eat the flesh of kings, and the flesh of captains, and the flesh of mighty men, and the flesh of horses, and of them that sit on them, and the flesh of all men, both free and bond, both small and great.

Revelation 19:19 And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

Revelation 19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Revelation 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

The first verse set the time period and we can see another interesting thing here. Look again at the first five words that begin the chapter. And I looked, and, lo, this is the eighth time this phrase is used in Revelation.

Revelation 4:1 After this I looked, and, behold,

Revelation 5:6 And I beheld, and, lo

Revelation 6:2 And I saw, and behold

Revelation 6:5 And I beheld, and lo

Revelation 6:8 And I looked, and behold

Revelation 6:12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo

Revelation 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo And once again in Revelation 14:1 And, I looked, and lo which would make the ninth usage.

Each time that John used phrases like these it always means that he is seeing something that is awesome to behold, something breathtaking that he has not seen before. We would say something like this: “Hey look at that, wow, look, look at what I see!”

There are three visions in this chapter. Verse 1 is the vision of the Lamb and the 144,000, verse 6 is the vision of seeing another angel and verse 14 is the vision of the white cloud and one like unto the Son of man sitting on the cloud. We will have more on this later.

We also see the continuation of the number seven with the angels. There have been seven seals with seven angels, there are seven angels here in this chapter, and there will be seven angels pouring out the bowl or vial judgments of Revelation chapter 16.

Now if you only count six angels in this chapter, may I suggest that you read it again because there are seven. We will look at this more in-depth a little later in this chapter, and I will attempt to give the explanation.

Revelation 14:1 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.

Revelation 14:2 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:

Revelation 14:3 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.

Revelation 14:4 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.

The next thing that I would bring to your attention is the Lamb standing on Mount Sion and the 144,000 with Him.

Two questions immediately come to mind. First, where is this Mount Sion located, on earth or in Heaven? And second, who are the 144,000 that are standing with the Lamb.

First we will look at Mount Sion. There is only one scripture that I can find that talks about Sion being in Heaven and that is in the book of Hebrews in the New Testament.

Hebrews 12:22 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels

Sion in this chapter can only be the literal Jerusalem where the Lord was crucified and from where He ascended and to where He will return. This Sion is on earth, it is literal, the Lord Jesus Christ is there and there is a company of Jews with Him to the tune of 144,000.

So we move the second question. Who are 144,00 that are standing with the Lamb? Is this the 144,000 that were sealed in Revelation chapter 7, or are they the Church, or the Seventh Day Adventists, or perhaps the Jehovah Witnesses.

What I can guarantee is that this 144,000 that is pictured for us are not the Seventh Day Adventists, nor the Jehovah Witnesses, that is, unless they happen to be Jews. Nor is this the Church of Jesus Christ, because the Church was caught up at the end of Revelation chapter 3.

Remember, the main subject of this entire book is about the revealing of The Lord Jesus Christ to the nation of Israel. This group is called firstfruits in Revelation 14:4 and the redeemed from the earth in Revelation 14:3. We therefore conclude that this is the same group that we saw in chapter 7, 144,000 thousand Jews who will be the firstfruits of the nation Israel to be redeemed during the tribulation, and then following this the balance of the remnant that will be redeemed.

What I find very encouraging is that this group is found at the end of the tribulation with the exact same number as when they were first sealed. Not one soul has been lost, not one. God has promised to keep those that belong to Him and He will do exactly as He promises, He will keep His word.

These Jews are seen as having his father’s name written in their foreheads, and I can not think anything other than this; that this will combat the mark of the beast and designate to everyone that these people belong to the Lamb of God.

Today we must look at a person’s life and their work, whether it be good or bad, so that we can make a determination whether or not they belong to Christ. We do this so that we may present the Gospel of Christ to any that seem to need the truth, not to cast judgment.

James told us that we would know them by their works. May I say that it is hard to tell or discern whether a person is a Christian if they do not do anything to show or prove their Christianity.

We work for Christ because He called us to salvation, and out of our love for Him not out of some misguided sense that if we work hard enough and long enough that we might go to Heaven when we die.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Ephesians 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Ephesians 2:10 For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.

We work because we are saved not because we are trying to get saved. We want our family, our friends, our neighbors to know Jesus Christ and the free gift of salvation He offers. We do not want to see anyone suffer eternal punishment and be cast out of the presence of our gracious and merciful God!

Dr. David Hocking listed three things that we should look at in these first four verses of Revelation 14. First was the protection of God for believers, second was the praise of God and third the purpose of God concerning the 144,000.

The protection of God is seen in the place that they occupy, the Mount Sion with the Lamb, the Lord Jesus as their protector andhis fathers name written in their foreheads. This reminds me of the passage in the book of Ephesians.

Ephesians 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,

Ephesians 1:14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.

These people have escaped the wrath of the tribulation, and they were not harmed in any way. Not one of them was lost, now that’s protection.

God seals either with the Holy Spirit now, or a mark on the forehead during the tribulation. Just know this, that if God called you to salvation you are His for eternity and nothing can come between you and God that will cause Him to reject you, nothing!

Romans 8:38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Romans 8:39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Now I see also in Revelation 14:2 and 3 that there will be singing. Verse 2 says that it will be as the voice of many waters and as the voice of a great thunder. It is not thunder but the meaning is loud. Very loud, like the clap of thunder is loud, so I do hope you like loud music as it is offered up to God and the Lamb.

These are songs of praise to the Lamb of God, a new song that only the 144,000 could sing. Great is the Lord and worthy to be praised. These words should be in you heart continually, making melody in your heart as you follow the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, your sin and my sin. Now if you do not like loud music, God will change your ears so that you can enjoy it.

Now for the purpose of God in bringing this group of believers before us again. In the explanation of who these believers are we see the following description:

Revelation 14:4 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.

Revelation 14:5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

These two verses speak of spiritual purity because the have kept themselves pure before God. I do not believe that the meaning here is that they have never been married. Throughout the old testament Israel would cheat on God and go a whoring after false gods, they committed spiritual adultery.

We see this pictured in the Old Testament book of Hosea with Hosea’s wife Gomer. Israel is pictured by the wife Gomer committing adultery against Hosea, and then Hosea taking her back after the adultery and forgiving her.

This is exactly what God has done with Israel. They turned to false gods and turned their back on the God who brought them out of Egypt. He fed them in the wilderness, and He has protected them for thousands of years. God has always taken them back and forgiven them only to have them turn away again to the false gods.

God sent the Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ, to Israel so that they could be redeemed and restored into a right relationship. They spit on Him, whipped Him, allowed Him to be hung on a cross and killed, thereby rejecting Him. In this book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ we see the agape love of God once more and for a final time reaching out to an unbelieving world, and this time it is with judgment. God is still providing a way of salvation for the nation Israel if they will turn from their wicked ways and worship Him.

2Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Even in this promise there are conditions. First, they must humble themselves, and this is a big one indeed. Israel knows that they are the chosen people of God, and they are a very proud people. God says humble yourselves; quit thinking so highly of yourselves, humble yourselves, rely on God and not on yourself, fall on your face before Me and then pray.

Pray to the only God there is, the God that can heal, the God that forgives, the God Jehovah that loves them. And then seek His face, cry out to God for the healing of the nation, seek Him with all of your heart, mind and strength. Then turn from their wicked ways, putting away all of the false gods, returning to Jehovah with their whole being. THEN will He hear from heaven and forgive their sins and will heal their land, and not before.

Well the good times are over, we have looked into the future to end of the tribulation and now we come back to the mid point. Just beyond we will see that judgment is about to reign down on an unbelieving world.

Revelation 14:6 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,

Revelation 14:7 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.

This is so great, this angel has the everlasting gospel. This is the message of salvation through Jesus the Christ. The angel flies to every nation and kindred and tongue, to all that dwell on the earth. He will preach to them Jesus, God in human flesh, incarnated, born, crucified, risen again. He is coming back to this very earth to establish His kingdom and He is the only way of salvation from the wrath of God.

This is the first of seven angels that we will see here in this chapter. In my mind at least this is the most important of the seven. This is what we should all be doing, telling others about Jesus the Christ and the way of salvation.

Now, this angel is preaching salvation and the righteousness of God, but he is also preaching judgment. We don’t hear much about judgment in our day. We don’t hear many preachers telling people to get right with God or they will burn in Hell. Mostly we hear a watered down message about love and respect and God’s great love for His Church and we leave the building feeling pretty good about ourselves.

My friend’s, people are heading for Hell and it is our job to give them the gospel of Christ. We can tell them about God’s love and God’s grace, but we also need to tell them about the coming tribulation and the judgment of God on unbelievers.

The angel in verse 6 is shown having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth. This is the same gospel that we have today. Don’t let anyone tell you that it is a different gospel, because it says everlasting gospel and everlasting is everlasting from start to finish.

Some have said that this is a different gospel but it is the same throughout the ages. Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation. If we want Heaven as our eternal home we get there through Jesus Christ and no other way. The Bible says that there is no other way to be saved.

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

The gospel will go out to all nations and languages or tongues and kindred and peoples. Everyone will have the opportunity to receive salvation.

Some denominations have said that Jesus could not come until every person on the face of the earth had heard the gospel, but that just is not true. There will be a multitude of people saved during this period of time. We have 144,000 hell fire and brimstone preaching Jews preaching the gospel in every language on earth, and quite frankly, this will be the second time that people will speak in an unknown language to preach the gospel. Once again this will be a supernatural act of God so that everyone will hear in their own dialect. And lest we forget, we have the angel with the everlasting gospel as well.

Revelation 14:8 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.

Now this passage will take some time because there are four views on the meaning of Babylon…. that great city. I will give you all four and you can make up your mind about which view you would like to embrace. But, be careful about claiming a view too quickly as there will be more on this later. I will give my interpretation of what I believe to be the correct view when we get further on in the study.

The first view, which is held by good Bible teachers, starts by reading the following passage.

Revelation11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

Where was Jesus crucified? Jerusalem is the answer. They believe that Jerusalem is that great city so they say that Revelation 14:8 must be that great city Babylon or Jerusalem.

The second view is that the great city refers to a rebuilt city of Babylon on the ancient site.

The ancient city of Babylon was located about 20 miles south of the city of Baghdad, which we see in the news today. Several people believe that the great city Babylon will be set up on the ancient site.

The third major view is the one the Church has held for 2000 years. Almost all Bible scholars agree that this is the city of Rome. Even the Roman Catholic Church argues for Rome in its own official theologies.

The fourth view is that it represents an unknown city in the tribulation period, and this is the safest view of all. Using the wordMystery of Revelation 17:5, this view says that it cannot be a known city or system.

We shall attempt to give the correct view when we get to Revelation chapter 17 and 18 of our study.

Now for the third angel, the third of ‘seven angels’!

Revelation 14:9 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,

Revelation 14:10 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:

Revelation 14:11 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.

I believe that these three verses provide the greatest reason for evangelism that we can find in the Word of God. If we think about what is happening in these three verses it should kindle a fire in each one of us to spread the Gospel of Christ.

We are told here that anyone who receives the mark or worships the beast and the image will suffer the wrath of God. They are to be tormented with fire and brimstone and verse 11 tells us that their torment will last for ever and ever and that they have no rest day or night.

Look at Revelation chapter 20. Revelation 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

This tells me that the punishment for unbelief is eternal suffering in the lake of fire. This punishment will be just, because the price of redemption was the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who paid the price of redemption with His life.

God gives mankind thousands of years to see the truth. God gave His Son to show Israel the way back to fellowship with Him. It can never be said that God was unfair because He didn’t give us a chance to escape this terrible place called Hell.

This is a picture of what Hell is like, total separation from God, burning with the eternal flames, extreme torment and pain, no relief, and no hope of relief. This should also drive us to our knees to thank our God and Savior that we were chosen to salvation.

Are we ready for a little good news? Look at the following verses and we can see that there is good news.

Revelation 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

Revelation 14:13 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.

Not only is the Church saved for eternity but verses 12 and 13 show us that people who die during the tribulation that are in the faith, are said to be resting from their labors and their works follow them. I take this to mean they have been killed for their faith, and because of that they will be resurrected at the end of the tribulation period to be with God.

Now once again we will have a little difference of interpretation with the following verse. There are at least two views as to the one sitting on the cloud.

Dr. Donald Barnhouse had these words on Revelation 14:14:

“It is immaterial whether this being, seated upon the white cloud, having on his head the wreath of gold and carrying in his hand a sickle, is the Lord Jesus Christ in person or a mighty angelic ambassador, clothed for the moment with the authority of the Lord in carrying out the task that this messenger is to fulfill.”

Commentators see both the Lord or a mighty angel. The main point is that this chapter deals with the judgment of God and the reaping of the vineyard and the winepress of the wrath of God being trampled outside the city.

Revelation 14:14 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.

The most common view is that this is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ. He is sitting on a cloud which is always pictured with deity. He is called the Son of Man which was the name that Jesus used for Himself. He has a golden crown which always depicts deity and He has in His hand a sharp sickle. So with all of the above evidence this must be Christ. This is assuredly a very strong argument for the person of Jesus Christ. And, to cap it off, this view uses the argument of ‘first usage’, and we see a similar passage in Revelation 1:13.

Revelation 1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

So this must be Jesus Christ!

The second view and the one which I personally lean toward is that the personage pictured on the cloud is ‘another angel’, and I give the following argument for this view.

First, and this is rather weak, but we do not see Jesus Christ sitting in the book of Revelation. He is always standing or riding on a horse.

Second, and this gets better, is the word like unto the Son of man. The word like is used before the Son of man and pictures someone in external likeness to the real Son of Man. This personage is like Jesus, but not Jesus.

Third, what is Jesus doing with a sharp sickle when everywhere else He is presented as the one with the sharp twoedged swordcoming from His mouth. We can see this from the following verses.

Revelation 1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

Revelation 2:12 And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write; These things saith he which hath the sharp sword with two edges;

Revelation 2:16 Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.

Revelation 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Revelation 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Fourth, the golden crown that is on the head of the personage sitting on the cloud is a golden ‘stephanos Crown’ which would be awarded to a victor in a game or that which is given to the saints.

Jesus Christ wears a ‘diadema’ crown, a kingly crown. Jesus Christ gained the victory at the cross of Calvary and is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords and would therefore have the many crowns of the King of Kings.

Revelation 19:12 His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself.

The Greek word for crown in Revelation 19:12 is Diadema or diadem depicting the crown of a king.

Fifth, in Revelation 14:15 we see another angel instructing this person to thrust in the sickle and to reap.

Revelation 14:15 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.

Jesus Christ would not be receiving instruction from an angel, He would have been the one giving the instructions for the angels to carry out His plan.

Sixth, from these verses we can see that this is the harvesting or judgment of the unbelievers that dwell on the earth. The harvest is placed in the great winepress of the wrath of God. We will reference this event back to Isaiah 63:1-6 after reading the following scriptures from the book of Revelation.

Revelation 14:16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

Revelation 14:17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

Revelation 14:18 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.

Revelation 14:19 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.

Revelation 14:20 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.

Revelation 19:15 And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

Revelation 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.

Now, we go to the book of Isaiah in the Old Testament to see the correlation of the prophesy from the Old Testament and the New Testament book of Revelation.

Isaiah 63:1 Who 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.

Isaiah 63:2 Wherefore art thou red in thine apparel, and thy garments like him that treadeth in the winefat?

Isaiah 63:3 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.

Isaiah 63:4 For the day of vengeance is in mine heart, and the year of my redeemed is come.

Isaiah 63:5 And I looked, and there was none to help; and I wondered that there was none to uphold: therefore mine own arm brought salvation unto me; and my fury, it upheld me.

Isaiah 63:6 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.

This is the battle of Armageddon, pictured here in Isaiah 63 and in Revelation 14 and 19. This is Jesus Christ who will tread the winepress of His wrath once the angels have harvested the vines.

Jesus Christ is not doing the harvesting, it is the seven angels that reap the harvest and then Jesus will trample the harvest in the winepress of His wrath.

Isaiah chapter 63 speaks directly to Revelation chapter 14, and it is the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophesy.

Now the only way that I could possibly see that it is Jesus on the cloud would be for this vision to be at the end of the tribulation period. But I would still have a problem with the sickle, with Jesus receiving instruction from an angel, and the fact that He is shown wearing a stephanos crown and not a Diadema crown, as would befit a King.

Now to recap my view of the seven angels we see in this chapter.

We saw the first angel in verse 6, And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven.

The second was in verse 8, And there followed another angel.

The third angel was in verse 9, And the third angel followed them.

The fourth angel was in verse 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.

The fifth angel was in verse 15, And another angel came out of the temple.

The sixth angel was in verse 17, And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven.

The seventh angel was shown to us in verse 18, And another angel came out from the altar.

The Lord Jesus Christ will trample out the vineyards where the grapes of wrath are stored. Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord, it is right here in the book of Revelation.

May God richly bless you as you study His word.
