The Lamb and the 144,000 (Verses 1-5):
The Lamb stands on Mount Zion, accompanied by 144,000 who have his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. They sing a new song, and they are described as blameless, following the Lamb wherever He goes.
The Three Angels (Verses 6-13):
Three angels fly in mid-air, declaring distinct messages. The first proclaims the everlasting gospel, the second announces the fall of Babylon, and the third warns against the worship of the beast and its mark. A voice from heaven blesses those who die in the Lord from this point on.
The Harvest of the Earth (Verses 14-20):
A sequence of reaping unfolds as a Son of Man, sitting on a cloud, harvests the earth. Another angel emerges from the temple, urging the harvest. More angels appear, one carrying a sharp sickle and another instructing him to gather the grapes of the earth into the winepress of God’s wrath.
Revelation 14 serves as a beacon of hope, contrasting the faithful who follow the Lamb with those led astray by the beast. It introduces the messages of three angels, culminating in a call for patience and faithfulness. The chapter closes with the harvesting of the earth, an imagery that sets the stage for the final events in this apocalyptic journey. It reminds the reader of the impending judgment and the importance of staying true to God.

Revelation 14

1  And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Zion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads.

2  And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:

3  And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.

4  These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

5  And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.

6  And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,

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.

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.

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,

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:

11  And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

12  Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.

13  And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

14  And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.

15  And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.

16  And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

17  And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.

18  And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.

19  And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

20  And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.
