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

  • A disciple
    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.
