Wesley's Notes for Revelation 14:18


14:18 And another angel from the altar - Of burnt offering; from whence the martyrs had cried for vengeance. Who had power over fire - As the angel of the waters, #Rev 16:5|, had over water. Cried, saying, Lop off the clusters of the vine of the earth - All the wicked are considered as constituting one body.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 14:18


Re 14:18 Another angel came out from the altar. The altar of burnt offerings. Which had the power over fire. This angel, one that has power over fire, comes forth from the altar where fire was kept burning. Fire is an emblem of punishment, of destruction. Thrust in thy sickle. He bids the angel who holds the sickle to begin his work, to put forth his sickle and cut off the clusters of the vine of the earth for they are ripe. Grapes are chosen as a symbol of the wicked because of their harmony with the figure that describes the fate of the wicked. "The vine of the earth" means the world that lieth in sin, "earth" being used in an unfavorable sense thus far in Revelation.

    Re. verse 20: " ...a thousand and six hundred furlongs." I see a lot of present day similarities and symbolism. Could this allude to the address of the White House?
  • BSP
    Verse 6~Angels have a share in the preaching of the good news being done today.
  • Rev1414
    The 7 th trump is the key. In the days of the voice of the 7 th trumpet the mystery shall be finished. Behold I come quickly. Then we shall all be changed in a moment in the twinkling of an eye at the last trump for the trumpet shall sound and the dead shall be raised incorruptible. To meet the lord in the air. The son of man sitting on the cloud. After the firstfruits (the 144000).
  • Word
    Disciple As it were in the days of Noah they were eating, drinking and having a party. When antichrist or instead of Christ shows off his supernatural powers and stands in Jerusalem claiming he is God the world will believe and they will be eating and drinking and having a party but election they will be delivered up to death which is to say Satan and they stand and the Holy Spirit of God speaks.
  • Bruce Wayne
    Verse 12: Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

    This we should all do, for the time is at hand (Rev 1:3).
  • A disciple
    Word; we both know, that every one of those who clings to the teaching of a pre-tribulation rapture, does so out of a misplaced loyalty, and not because they have actually found it by the Spirit's inspiration of the Scriptures. "As it was in the days of Lot and Noah" infers a thought that all things will go on indefinitely as they always have; while willfully blind to the sin destroying the world.
