Verses 1-18

Revelation 14:6 “having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth” - Comments The Holy Scriptures will be a vital part of God’s children throughout eternity, even after all prophecies have been fulfilled. We will study God’s Word in Heaven and talk about it for eternity.

Illustration - Rick Joyner writes, “Yes, there will be preaching and teaching in heaven. For all of eternity, My story will be told. That is why it is called the eternal gospel. I am he Word and I am Truth, and words of truth will forever fill My creation. All of creation will delight in My words of truth just as you are now.” [102]

[102] Rick Joyner, The Call (Charlotte, North Carolina: Morning Star Publications, 1999), 180.

Revelation 14:7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.

Revelation 14:7 Comments - Revelation 14:7 gives us a call of repentance. We see throughout these calamities that are brought upon the earth that God is using them to call mankind to repentance. The time of the Tribulation will be a time of many souls coming to repentance. Yet, there will be many who will not do so because of the depravity of their hearts. Note the numerous references in Revelation to the unrepentance of men during this time:

Revelation 9:20, “And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands , that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:”

Revelation 9:21, “ Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”

Revelation 16:9, “And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory .”

Revelation 16:11, “And blasphemed the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds .”

Revelation 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.

Revelation 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,

Revelation 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:

Revelation 14:10 Comments Revelation 14:10 reveals to us that those in the presence of the Lamb will be able to see the ones who are being tormented in the lake of fire. Isaiah the prophet made a similar prophecy in his closing words in the book of Isaiah (Isaiah 66:23-24).

Isaiah 66:23-24, “And it shall come to pass, that from one new moon to another, and from one sabbath to another, shall all flesh come to worship before me, saith the LORD. And they shall go forth, and look upon the carcases of the men that have transgressed against me: for their worm shall not die, neither shall their fire be quenched; and they shall be an abhorring unto all flesh.”
