The Harvest of the Earth ( Revelations 14:14 – 20 )

Background

As I was washing a pile of dishes, I wanted to be distracted a bit, and took to listen to one of Brother Jacob Prasch’s messages on YouTube.

Two Harvests

In passing he referenced the two Harvests in Revelation.

Wanted to look more into it.

The Harvest of the Earth

Scripture

Revelations 14

Revelation 14:14-16

14 Then I looked, and behold, a white cloud, and seated on the cloud one like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head, and a sharp sickle in his hand.

15 And another angel came out of the temple, calling with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud, Put in your sickle, and reap, for the hour to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is fully ripe.

16 So he who sat on the cloud swung his sickle across the earth, and the earth was reaped.

Revelation 14:17-20

17 Then another angel came out of the temple in heaven, and he too had a sharp sickle.

18 And another angel came out from the altar, the angel who has authority over the fire, and he called with a loud voice to the one who had the sharp sickle, “Put in your sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, for its grapes are ripe.”

19 So the angel swung his sickle across the earth and gathered the grape harvest of the earth and threw it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.

20 And the winepress was trodden outside the city, and blood flowed from the winepress, as high as a horse’s bridle, for 1,600 stadia.
