NOTE: 14:1-5 - There are two groups of people the Lord looks after at the end of this age. The group in this section refers to the 12 tribes of Israel. Our Lord Jesus after the flesh, is brother to them. They fulfilled the Promises God made to Abraham in Covenant, and Jesus comes from them as Son of Man. What a shock this will be to the nations, when they realize their gross error in their spirit of anti-semitism. Hitler is probably the outstanding arch-enemy to the Jews and Israel, but he is far from being alone. Israel is firstfruitof the purchase of God.
14:6-7 sets the lie to the short-sightedness of the liberal mentality. God is indeed a God of love - but at the same time - a God of righteous judgment - and these two are in perfect balance. Beware of the danger of not holding all truth in perfect balance. Each positive requires its balancing negative. God has created the entire universe structured in such a balance.
14:8 - The message here foretells what soon God will spell out in detail. Babylonis hateful in the sight of God!
14:9-12 - The message of this third angel is strongly rejected by the majority of mankind. However - their deception will be fully realized in the time about to come. For them it will then be too late. For the righteous it will be confirmation of their hope - that our God is a just God - a God of perfect balance - a God holding love and judgment in that perfect balance. “Be not deceived. God is notmocked: for whatevera man sows, thatshall he also reap.!” Galatians 6:7
4. 14:13 - This is an encouraging word. Those of us who choose to receive the “finished Redemptive work” of Jesus Christ, rest in it, and take the certain future hope He offers - we can with full confidence look forward to this verse - both for ourselves and all other fellow saints who likewise choose to walk this way. We know one Catholic saint who walked such a godly life. She knew God in Jesus Christ and trusted in Him. To us, there is no doubt we will renew fellowship with her in heaven at last. We know too that she now rests from her labors, and that her works do follow her!
E. 14:14-20 - Here we ascertain that there is a reaping at the end of this age. The reaping at Armageddon is the most serious. The minute description leaves little to one's imagination. All of mankind, righteous or unrighteous, is well aware of this passage. Books have been written on it - movies have been produced on it. God wants all mankind to be saved. But at the same time He wants them to be well aware of the penalty for their failure to believe. J.A.W.
