The King is Coming: Follow Him Now!

Revelation 14:1-20

“Behold, I am coming soon! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy in this book.”  Rev. 22:7

 

During the great tribulation…

  • God chooses a Jewish remnant of 144,000 to be his redeemed, blameless representatives on the earth. 14:1-5
  • God uses three angels to proclaim the gospel, coming judgment and the need for the saints to be faithful on the earth. 14:6-13
  • God uses angels and Christ to execute his unimaginable wrath on the wicked on the earth.  14:14-20

Lessons for us:

  1.  God’s promised wrath on the wicked reminds us as followers of Christ to live a blameless life.  14:4-5.
  2.  God’s promised wrath on the wicked reminds us as followers of Christ to live a life of faithfulness. 14:12-13
  3.  God’s promised wrath on the wicked reminds us as followers of Christ to share with them the hope of the gospel. 14:6
  4.  God’s promised wrath on the wicked reminds us as followers of Christ to worship God. 14:3,7
