Revelation 14



Revelation 14 from The Chronological Gospels

The 144,000 – The Firstfruits Before the Throne

14:1 I looked, and saw a Lamb standing on mount Zion, and with him were one hundred and forty-four thousand, having his Father’s name written on their foreheads.

2And I heard a voice from heaven like the sound of roaring oceans, and like the sound of deafening thunder. And I heard the sound of harpers harping with their harps, 3and they sang a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts and the elders. But no one could learn that song except the hundred and forty-four thousand, who were redeemed from the earth [at the sounding of the seventh trumpet]. 4These are the ones who were not defiled with women, for they kept themselves as virgins.{1} They are the ones who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were redeemed out from among men, being the Firstfruits to YHVH and to the Lamb. 5In their mouths was found no guile, and they are without fault.

{14:4.1} These are those who kept themselves pure from forbidden sexual activity or ervah matters (see footnote on Matthew 5:32, event <62>). When a man and woman are married in a state of virginity, there is no defilement – the marriage bed is undefiled (Hebrews 13:4). This passage in no way implies that marriage is forbidden for those who are among the chosen and sealed 144,000 – it simply means that they were not defiled by inappropriate sexual activity while they were unmarried and remained faithful to their spouses afterward. In a spiritual sense, they are not contaminated by the Babylonian religious, economic, and political system, which John, Yochanan, described as a whore.

Babylon’s Judgment Declared

14:6 I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach to those who dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and family, and tongue, and people. 7He cried with a loud voice, “Fear YHVY, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment has come! Worship him who made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the springs of waters.” 8Another angel followed crying, “Babylon has fallen! That great city has fallen because she made all nations drink the wine of her passion for sexual immorality.” 9A third angel followed them, crying with a loud voice, “If any man worships the beast or his image, or receives the mark in his forehead or in his hand, 10the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of YHVY which will be poured full strength into the cup of his anger. They will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb! 11The smoke of their torment will ascend from age to age. Those who worship the beast or his image, or whoever receives the mark of his name, will have no rest day or night. 12Here is where we see the real endurance and patience of the saints! Here stand those who keep the commandments of YHVH and keep the faith in Yeshua.” 13Then I heard a voice from heaven, telling me to write exactly what the Spirit says: “Blessed are the dead who die in Messiah from this point on! Truth, they die in order to allow them to rest from their labors – yet their works of righteousness will follow them!”

The Day of YHVY

14:14 Then I looked and saw a white cloud, and upon the cloud sat one who was like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown and in his hand a sharp sickle. 15Then another angel came out of the Temple, crying with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud, “Thrust in your sickle and reap, for the time has come for you to reap – the harvest of the earth is ripe.” 16He who sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped. 17Again, another angel came out of the Temple in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. 18Then came out from the altar another angel, who had the responsibility for the altar fire, and he cried with a loud cry to the angel who had the sharp sickle, “Thrust in your sharpened sickle and harvest the clusters of the vine of the earth – her grapes are fully ripe!” 19So the angel thrust his sickle into the earth and gathered the vine of the earth and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of YHVH.  20The winepress was trodden outside the city, and the blood that came out of the winepress came all the way up to the horses’ bridles, at a distance of one thousand and six hundred stadia – one hundred and eighty-five miles.
