Revelation Chapter 14 - Morehead City - A Church of Christ

Revelation Chapter 14 1 Then I looked, and behold, the Lamb was standing on Mount Zion, and with Him one hundred and forty-four thousand, having His name and the name of His Father written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a voice from heaven, like the sound of many waters and like the sound of loud thunder, and the voice which I heard was like the sound of harpists playing on their harps. 3 And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the

elders; and no one could learn the song except the one hundred and forty-four thousand who had been purchased from the earth. 4 These are the ones who have not been defiled with women, for they have kept themselves chaste. These are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These have been purchased from among men as first fruits to God and to the Lamb. 5 And no lie was found in their mouth; they are blameless. Revelation Chapter 14

What is significant about the lamb and 144,000? His followers His entourage The faithful ones Do you think this is literally meaning only 144,000 make it to Heaven? What is significant about Mount Zion?

Revelation Chapter 14 Is the name on their forehead the same as the seal mentioned in chapter 7? What could the name denote? Allegiance Ownership Commitment

Is verse 4 saying celibacy is necessary or preferable over marriage? The big picture Revelation Chapter 14 Spiritual purity is the image that we should receive from verse 4 Just as a married person can fall into adultery

We can fall into spiritual adultery when we leave God and worship Satan In our day how are we tempted by Satan? Revelation Chapter 14 Impurity is all around us influencing us to think about or commit

spiritual immorality. 6 And I saw another angel flying in mid heaven, having an eternal gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, and to every nation and tribe and tongue and people; 7 and he said with a loud voice, "Fear God, and give Him glory, because the hour of His judgment has come; worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of waters." 8 And another angel, a second one, followed, saying, "Fallen, fallen is Babylon the great, she who has made all the nations drink of the wine of the passion of her immorality." 9 Then another angel, a third one, followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his

image, and receives a mark on his forehead or on his hand, 10 he also will drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is mixed in full strength in the cup of His anger; and he will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. 11 "And the smoke of their torment goes up forever and ever; they have no rest day and night, those who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name." 12 Here is the perseverance of the saints who keep the commandments of God and their faith in Jesus. 13 And I heard a voice from heaven, saying, "Write, 'Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on!'" "Yes," says the Spirit, "so that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow with them."

What is significant about the wine in verse 10 being described as full strength? Alcohol is diluted to make it palatable Full strength alcohol is almost impossible to drink 14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and sitting on the cloud was one like a son of man, having a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand. 15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying out with a loud voice to Him who sat on the cloud, "Put in your sickle and reap, for the hour to reap has come,

because the harvest of the earth is ripe." 16 Then He who sat on the cloud swung His sickle over the earth, and the earth was reaped. 17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. 18 Then another angel, the one who has power over fire, came out from the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, "Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, because her grapes are ripe." 19 So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God. 20 And the wine press was trodden outside the city, and blood came out

from the wine press, up to the horses' bridles, for a distance of two hundred miles. Revelation Chapter 14 What does the imagery of the Son of Man sitting on the cloud bring to your mind? How about the golden crown? How about the sharp sickle? What is a sickle used for?

What does verse 15 mean that the harvest of the earth is ripe? Revelation Chapter 14 Farmers gather crops when they are ripe and when the gathering yields the most abundance and economic profit.

After the gathering what's left in the field is useless! What is significant about the blood coming out of the winepress? Judgment What does the description of the quantity of blood mean? Revelation Chapter 14 It has to be figurative

To show just how overwhelming the judgment of God will be
