REVELATION 14
FOUR VOICES ANNOUNCE THE OUTCOME OF THE CONFLICT

  • New Song - means a new expression of God's goodness (Isaiah 42:9ff). Only the saved in Jesus can sing this song. Only they receive all the goodness of God.


  • Four Voices - are four headlines that announce the outcome of the conflict between Rome and the church. They are:

  • 1. GOD'S JUSTICE TRIUMPHS! THE SEVENTH TRUMPET SOUNDS! (14:6, 7)

    2. BABYLON FALLS!

    3. THE WORSHIPPERS OF THE EMPEROR ARE JUDGED!
    4. THE CHRISTIANS WHO DIE IN THE CONFLICT ARE BLESSED!

  • The wheat harvest - is the salvation of the faithful (See Matthew 3:12, 20 and Amos 9:9, 10).


  • Harvest of Grapes is the judgment of the ungodly in this conflict.

  • The cast of characters has been identified in this conflict. On one side is the lamb (gentle and mild) and with him 144,000 virgin men singing praises with harps. On the other side is the dragon (cruel, strong and fierce) and with him the beast from the sea, the false prophet (beast from the earth), and ten kings with their armies and a great multitude, all marked with the mark of the beast. The hour has come for battle. But who will win? The result was never in doubt! The outcome is already announced, even before the battle (in this vision) begins. The enemy of the church will pay dearly for his crimes but even the Christians who die in the battle are blessed!
