Wesley's Notes for Revelation 14:6


14:6 And I saw another angel - A second is mentioned, verse 8; a third, verse 9. #Rev 14:8|,9 These three denote great messengers of God with their assistants; three men who bring messages from God to men. The first exhorts to the fear and worship of God; he second proclaims the fall of Babylon; the third gives warning concerning the beast. Happy are they who make the right use of these divine messages! Flying - Going on swiftly. In the midst of heaven - Breadthways. Having an everlasting gospel - Not the gospel, properly so called; but a gospel, or joyful message, which was to have an influence on all ages. To preach to every nation, and tribe, and tongue, and people - Both to Jew and gentile, even as far as the authority of the beast had extended.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 14:6


Re 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven. "I saw another angel flying in mid heaven" (Revised Version). An angel is a messenger. Any agency that does God's work or carries his message may be an angel. This angel is a symbol. (1) His flying indicates some movement or change that shall take place with great rapidity. (2) The fact that he has the "everlasting gospel" shows that the movement symbolized is the evangelization of the world. (3) That the movement will be world wide is shown in that he speaks to all races. (4) His proclamation shows that he not only offers the glad tidings, but declares the consequences of their rejection. Having the everlasting gospel to preach to them. This all implies that the purification of the Church will be followed by a mighty gospel impulse which will sweep over the world. There is a sublime missionary spirit on the part of the revived Church. Full of zeal, breathing the spirit of the Master, permeated with the apostolic spirit, as in the days of old it will go everywhere preaching the world. The old, old story told by a holy people, told with a burning zeal and overflowing love, shall exhibit its divine power in the salvation of the nations.

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.
