A Brief Synopsis of Revelation 14
Here we clarify with the proper interpretation of Revelation 14 where many have greatly erred in using verse 20 in unison with other parts of Revelation to insist on a final literal battle of such proportions that blood will actually be horse-bridle deep. Revelation 14 has nothing at all to do with a literal battle that ends in this preposterous way. It is rather a total picture of the Everlasting Gospel finally coming forth and being preached accompanied by a declaration that presents the fact that all which has come before is now corrupted and defiled via being eclipsed by this greater, all-encompassing message. Previous dealings of God with mankind in the past, necessary for those eras and the development of civilization within them, Israel being the prime subject used, have come to the point of being discarded. This is the meaning of “Babylon has fallen.”
The Gospel of Disgrace
Babylon, used under Nebuchadnezzar for God’s greater purpose, came to the point of the transgression of Belshazzar taking the precious things of the temple and joining them with heathen feasts; thus, it was taken and captured by the Persian Empire. It is the same today with spiritual Babylon. Upon Israel rejecting Messiah, the Gospel of Grace under Paul brought the nations into the Promise to Israel extended to Gentiles by that rejection. However, through the false prophets misrepresenting the truth in their false interpretations in the name of Christ, the Gospel of Grace was abandoned as taught with proper understanding by Paul. Keeping the same façade in name only, it became what Paul calls “another gospel,” which is not the gospel at all, according to Galatians 1:6-7. It went beyond what was given via mixing the Law of Moses in an unauthorized manner, and then later that which was heathen and vile, with the truth in what we have today in the end time and must be removed. Chief in that evil and fornication is those of Israel as Zionists, joined and supported by Christians claiming to believe “the gospel,” which have taken alternate means and methods as we have portrayed clearly to this point in our publication, in a position of being in league with Revived Rome instead of Messiah, thus continuing the same league they had with Old Rome previously which lead to the rejection of Messiah polluting the sanctuary of their strength. Zionists, and politically the Zionist State are characterized as riding atop the whole debacle in manipulation and spiritual fornication with the nations, being principally supported by Christians that say this State is the Seed of Abraham that Christians must support to receive proper blessing, ignoring the fact that it is Messiah that is the promised seed for blessing as Paul taught in Galatians 3. This whole scenario is the illicit relationship called Babylon the Great of Revelation 17 and 18 based upon Ezekiel 23. It is time for these things to be torn down and obliterated to make way for God’s Final Stage and Setting around THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL.
Nature Teaches Us the Same Thing
Much the same way as an animal sheds its skin or a plant drops the surrounding vegetation when the fruit is ready to come forth, the past has served its purpose and is now to be put aside for the end and goal in view. The end product in any living organism is the purpose of the existence for all the stages before that objective is accomplished. Therefore, along with THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, we have another message that shows this overall purpose for what has past, and the fact that it is now corrupted and must be discarded for the final stage. Those under the old view of principally self-determination, deciding one’s own destiny with God as an on-looking, separate entity, have the mark of the beast, believing in their minds (mark in the forehead) they are correct in this view and that their works (mark in the hand) are indeed THEIR works, and not the work of God in them. Eternally there is no rest and only torment, while operating in this mindset. There is no relief and can never be. Only when we die spiritually and move to another mindset can we be delivered. This is the point of Revelation 14:1-13 where verse 13 conveys that those dead spiritually in those former understandings are blest only upon dying in the Lord or reckoning themselves dead unto those old views which served their purpose and must now be discarded. Only in so doing can they receive full rest. They must understand it is all God’s doing and therefore the individual, in having THAT revelation, which comes from understanding THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL, ceases from believing that we, ourselves, ever did, are doing, or will do anything, in reality. It is only God working out His good pleasure and purpose established and finished before the foundation of the world. That is the final destination and purpose for all that has gone before which beliefs must be consumed and left behind for this FULL TRUTH.
Structure of the Law and the Prophets from which
The Everlasting Gospel Is Declared and Brought to Bear
Revelation 14:14-20 is the overview of the structure and events that terminate in the final judgment to establish what is presented in Revelation 14:1-13, THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL. That structure is Daniel 9:24-27 as given in the symbology of these verses. First we have the Wheat and Grain harvest of the spring in verses 14-16, the First Ministry of Messiah from 26-30 CE, the First Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, fulfilling also Leviticus 23:1-22 of those spring feast days as we have shown meticulously in our previous, earlier Sections.
Secondly we have the Grape or Vine harvest of the fall in verses 17-20, the Last or Second Ministry of Messiah from 1984 – 1987 CE, the Last Half of Daniel’s 70th Week, fulfilling also Leviticus 23:23-44.
In both harvests, there is a reaping. In the First Harvest, this is the First Resurrection where the Apostles and those that heard the voice of Messiah, thereby understanding truth, arose from spiritual death. In the Second Harvest, all of mankind will eventually rise to truth and be awakened from spiritual death. Those that have waited for Messiah in expectation rightly are raised to the truth in a positive fulfillment, thus having what they believed, then capped off with FULL TRUTH. Those that have made haste in assuming they were right in their views of predominantly self-determination, freewill and choice, will be likewise raised to the truth, however, negatively bringing great tribulation such as never was since there was a nation, having what they have believed removed as in error, where they must then make the positive move to FULL TRUTH. This negative picture is what characterizes the final harvest in verse 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.
In referencing the following link and studying it in depth, this verse is clearly brought to light. The parameter of the “winepress” of judgment is defined since the 1967 Six-Day-War, when the Zionists broke with the UN and the original UNGA Resolution 181, even as they did against Old Rome in 66-72 CE, and proceeded in June of 1967 to confiscate Judea and Samaria and East Jerusalem and the Holy Mount in particular. This was never sanctioned by UNGA Resolution 181 where all resolutions since 1967 have called for the Zionist to abandon occupation and return to the pre-1967 borders. Refusing to obey the UN, the distance around the West Bank, “occupied territory” called Judea and Samaria, with its valley being the “horse bridles” of Jerusalem, all considered the valley of Jehoshaphat of Joel 1-3, is a thousand and six hundred furlongs or about 200 miles. The contest between God and the world has revolved for centuries around this general area and Jerusalem in particular, where Jerusalem has been a burdensome stone for all, breaking all those that burden themselves with it according to Zechariah 12:1-3. Climaxing with this specific border of 1600 furlongs since 1967, it is around this area and property that the final judgment is released. This is also depicted in verses 12-15 of Revelation 16 exposing deception and rendering judgment referred to as the Valley of Armageddon, which is the same as the Valley of Jehoshaphat in Joel 3 and the Valley of Jezreel in Hosea 1-2. The blood is not literal, but refers to the harvest producing the product of the fruit, the Final Resurrection. There, at this place centered in Jerusalem, all the world will be brought to view the final events that remove the current, world understanding and all previous understandings of life, God, science and certainly the Bible, slain, hence the symbol of the blood, consumed in the vast parameters of THE EVERLASTING GOSPEL and the practical working out of its message in all facets of existence from this point forward. Here now is that link for the reader’s further consideration and study.
