Text: REVELATION 14:1-20
Revelation 14:1 And I looked, and behold, a Lamb standing on Mount Zion, and with Him 144,000, having His Father's name written in their foreheads.
2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of great thunder. And I heard the voice of harpists harping with their harps.
3 And they sang as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four living creatures, and the elders; and no one could learn that song but the 144,000, who were redeemed from the earth.
4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb wherever He goes. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits to God and to the Lamb.
5 And in their mouth was found no guile, for they are without fault before the throne of God.
6 Then I saw another angel flying in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and tribe, and tongue, and people,
7 saying with a loud voice, "Fear God and give glory to Him; for the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters."
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."
9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead, or on his hand,
10 He also shall also 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.
11 And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.
12 Here is the patience of the saints; here are those that keep the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus."
13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, "Write: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on. Yes, said the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them."
14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and on the cloud sat One like the Son of Man, having on His head a golden crown, and in His hand a sharp sickle.
15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to Him that sat on the cloud, "Thrust in Your sickle, and reap; for the time has come for You 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.
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, who had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, "Thrust in your sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her 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 wine press of the wrath of God.
20 And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood came out of the wine press, up to the horses' bridles, for 1,600 stadia.
