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.

Discussion for Revelation 14

  • BSP
    Verse 6 shows that angels have an interest and are involved in the preaching of the good news.
  • Bruce
    word: that is the 5th Trump out of 7. ( 5 months of torment, then The 6th Trump,then the Last Trump. All The Trumps take a lot longer then 5 Months. The Locusts tormented the lost.
  • Word
    When God says that He shortened the time for the elect sake in the Gospels and you read in Rev. 9 that the locust will be here with their king for 5 months, and He says it twice, 5 months I got a good idea it's 5 months.
  • SabbathkeeperandWife
    Still on that 5 months thing that is a complete non-fitting fairly tale. All that is covered in 9. This is 14 and about the 3 angels messages. They tell the punishment for association with the MARK. Rome says their MARK is Sunday. God's seal is in the 4th commandment. The God made Sabbath, not man's. The persecution will come when a Sunday law is made like they HAD in Europe and are doing again
  • Marilynn for verse 4
    I think Dejan may be right.
  • Word
    Read chapter 9 they will be here 5 months and they have their king, their rock,their instead of Christ, antichrist. This is the book of the revealing, to take off the cover,to in lightening, to make known to the things that will come to pass and little Titus ransacking Jerusalem isn't nothing compared to the Great day of the Lord when Christ flattens Jerusalem and Rome has nothing to do with it.
