People's Bible Notes for Revelation 14:17


Re 14:17 Another angel came out of the temple . . . having a sharp sickle. The ripened harvest of the saints has been gathered first. That was symbolized in Re 14:14-16. The gathering of the wicked to judgment is now shown in the symbols. Another angel comes forth with a sickle in his hand. Christ, by his angels, was the great reaper of the righteous harvest. They that are Christ's are gathered by him at his coming, but the wicked are gathered by another, here presented as an angel reaper.
