Wesley's Notes for Revelation 14:20


14:20 And the winepress was trodden - By the Son of God, #Rev 19:15|. Without the city - Jerusalem. They to whom St. John writes, when a man said, The city, immediately understood this. And blood came out of the winepress, even to the horses' bridles - So deep at its first flowing from the winepress! One thousand six hundred furlongs - So far! at least two hundred miles, through the whole land of Palestine.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 14:20


Re 14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city. The city, whenever it is not shown to be a wicked city, is Jerusalem, the Apocalyptic symbol of the Church. These judgments are "without" the church, judgments upon the world. And blood came out of the winepress. This is what John saw. The pressed juice of the grapes ran out red like blood, and ran in a mighty stream, deep as the bridle bits of the horses, a thousand [and] six hundred furlongs; about 200 miles. There has been much discussion concerning what this distance signifies. Some have cited the fact that Palestine is about 200 miles long, and held that a fearful carnage in that country is predicted. Others have noted the fact that Italy is about 200 miles wide, and held that this country is to be the scene of a terrible conflict. In my opinion, the whole is symbolic of the terrible judgments of the wicked in that day. The figure, 40 x 40, or 4 x 4, multiplied by 10 x 10, imply the universality of the judgment. The "four" quarters, the "four" winds, the "four" corners of the earth are often mentioned, and "four" is held to be an Apocalyptical symbol of the earth, while ten, like seven, is a perfect, or sacred number.

Discussion for Revelation 14

    Paul and Word; interpreting prophecies and understanding mysteries in Scripture is given by the Spirit of Truth; and never through human methodologies or invention. Scripture is not written in secret code, and religion is not superstition. There are many prayers in Psalm 119, specifically on how to ask for understanding. All may come and receive this from Him who have a good AND AN HONEST HEART.
  • Paul
    The three angels message is Justification by faith, invariably.

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

    Typeology for the 3 angels message is found in Daniel, chapters 1-6.

    Grace and peace be with you.
  • Word
    Satan comes at the 6h trump, the 6th vial and the 6th seal. The 7th trump will be the Warrior with hail stones and fire. You won't be expecting Him because the world will be so happy in their peace, false peace because there is no true peace without the Prince of Peace but up to the time of the war of the 7th trump, at the gathering place where Satan and his bunch have gathered that's the end.
  • A disciple
    Walter; actually it very much IS literal! While the ungodly are going deeper and deeper into darkness and deceit, and they are breaking all the bonds and casting away all the cords; God has already judged them, and so removes His restraint from before them. We seek to walk in Truth and a good conscience following our dear Saviour Jesus: for this we are persecuted and MUST BE PATIENT while we wait!
  • Walter Hutchins
    The patient of the saint is a hidden mystery from u all if God wanted u to know the mystery he would let u know so maybe you should look inside yourself and strengthen your walk . I will too it isn't literal all is spiritual... Hint
  • BSP
    Verse 6 shows that angels have an interest and are involved in the preaching of the good news.
