        • Spent 50 years
        • Book – The Rapture Question, John F. Walvoord, 1954-1957
          • The fact is that neither post-trib or Pre-trib is an explicit teaching of  Scripture ( page 148 )
          • The rapture question is determined more by Ecclesiology than by Eschatology
            • More by one’s understanding of the relation between the Church and Israel than by Biblical teachings regarding the End.
      • Master Seminary, California
        • Richard Mayhew, Dean
          • Day of the Lord

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.

In Depth

  1. Revelation 14:14
    • Look behold, a white cloud
  2. Revelations 14:15
    • reap, for the hour to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is fully ripe.

Wrath Harvest ( Revelations 14:18-20 )

  1. Revelations 14:18
    • the angel who has authority over the fire
      • It is obvious that only certain elements, Angels, have authority over the fire
  2. Revelations 14:19
    • great winepress of the wrath of God.
      • Wrath of God, judgement
  3. Revelations 14:20
    • Outside the City
      • Despicable is always taken outside the city
    • Blood Flowed

Summary

Beloved, please continue to work towards bringing people into God’s good harvest.

It is hard work, yet no greater labor.

And, you will know as God acknowledges, encourages, replenishes, and bring to light the changes that is occurring in peoples lives as you work in his field.

Closing

Work and look forward to the “White Cloud“.

  1. Spiritual Warfare
    • Profile
      • Part One
        • By: Alistair Begg – Jesus secured salvation for all believers when He defeated Satan at the cross. Until Christ returns, however, spiritual warfare rages on in this world and should not be easily dismissed. In His mercy, God has provided the armor by which we can withstand such fierce opposition. In this overview of God’s protective provision, Alistair Begg exhorts us to resist Satan’s accusations, look outside ourselves to Christ, and recall the truth that in Christ, we already have the victory.
      • Part Two
        • By: Alistair Begg – Every believer dwells in the spiritual realm and will encounter battle with our adversary, the devil, until Christ’s return. Alistair Begg urges us to remain alert to Satan’s subtle, fiery darts, and outlines a practical strategy to employ in the midst of the struggle. As students of God’s Word, we can persevere—conscious of our weakness, but strong in the Lord; resolute because of His goodness; and with every confidence in our unity with the One who reigns victorious.

  2. Prophet, Priest, King
    • Profile
      • Understanding the breadth of Christ’s finished work is essential for the Christian life. This study in Hebrews 1 reminds us that Jesus is the Prophet who revealed God finally and fully, the Priest who reconciled lost people to God by sacrificing himself, and the triumphant King who reigns over all that he has made.
    • Scripture
      • Hebrews 1
        • Prophets
          • In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son ( Hebrew 1:1 )
        • Priest
          • After he had provided purification for sins ( Hebrew 1:3 )
        • King
          • But about the Son he says,

            “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever;
                a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom.
            You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
                therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions
                by anointing you with the oil of joy.”

            ( Hebrew 1:8-9 )

  4. Signs of the Ends
    • Profile
      • Most of the time, when the topic is “the end of the world,” you hear a lot of speculation about dates and events and meanings. Mark 13 shows us a striking difference in the way Jesus approached this subject. Instead of speculating about dates, the Lord provided His followers with practical instruction – actions and attitudes that will equip us to face the future He has planned.

Scripture

Acts 22:6-21

Link

  1. 6 “About noon as I came near Damascus, suddenly a bright light from heaven flashed around me. 7 I fell to the ground and heard a voice say to me, ‘Saul! Saul! Why do you persecute me?’
  2. 8 “‘Who are you, Lord?’ I asked.
  3. “ ‘I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting,’ he replied. 9 My companions saw the light, but they did not understand the voice of him who was speaking to me.
  4. 10 “‘What shall I do, Lord?’ I asked.
  5. ” ‘Get up,’ the Lord said, ‘and go into Damascus. There you will be told all that you have been assigned to do.’ 11 My companions led me by the hand into Damascus, because the brilliance of the light had blinded me.
  6. 12 “A man named Ananias came to see me. He was a devout observer of the law and highly respected by all the Jews living there. 13 He stood beside me and said, ‘Brother Saul, receive your sight!’ And at that very moment I was able to see him.
  7. 14 “Then he said: ‘The God of our ancestors has chosen you to know his will and to see the Righteous One and to hear words from his mouth. 15 You will be his witness to all people of what you have seen and heard. 16 And now what are you waiting for? Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.
  8. 17 “When I returned to Jerusalem and was praying at the temple, I fell into a trance 18 and saw the Lord speaking to me. ‘Quick!’ he said. ‘Leave Jerusalem immediately, because the people here will not accept your testimony about me.’
  9. 19 “‘Lord,’ I replied, ‘these people know that I went from one synagogue to another to imprison and beat those who believe in you. 20 And when the blood of your martyr Stephen was shed, I stood there giving my approval and guarding the clothes of those who were killing him.’
  10. 21 “Then the Lord said to me, ‘Go; I will send you far away to the Gentiles.’ ”

      • Philemon is the story of a runaway slave named Onesimus. Stealing from his master and running away to Rome, Onesimus comes in contact with the apostle Paul. Paul then asks Onesimus to return to his master, even though he was a run away, even tho he stole. Onesimus owed a great debt. A debt he could not pay. Though his journey, we are shown an incredible picture of purpose, grace and redemption.

Peter Hockley, Four nights with the Devil

Profile

Hear the testimony of Peter Hockley who grew up in a household without religion. Dissatisfied with life and unable to find any lasting happiness in the world around him, his emptiness led to a search for spiritual meaning. At the age of twenty-one, Peter wanders through the religion section of the local bookstore, looking for answers. One book stands out among all others: An author who claims his written messages to the spirit world are answered by an invisible entity that takes control of his mind and body; an entity that calls itself “God”. Reading the entire book in one night, the young man is captivated by every word. Only one question remains: How can he know the truth? Taking a pen and paper, the man writes his own letter and is amazed when “God” responds.
