The Three Angels

Now we enter into the fourteenth chapter; We see those elect whom have exited the churches as the 144,000 that have entered the sabbath rest of Christ.

Rev 14:1 And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.
Rev 14:2 And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:
Rev 14:3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
Rev 14:4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
Rev 14:5 And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. (KJV)

This chapter redresses the mark of the beast and the number of his name forced upon all those that well on the Earth. There is hope in this passage that as Jesus Christ is stood upon the mountain of Zion - (The remnant of His people) there is redemption with the 144,000 sealed believers. They have the name of the Father written in their foreheads - as the author and perfecter of their faith, their creator. There is no longer a need for the token of God in their right hands - they are at "rest" in Christ and do not require works any longer, as "All Israel is saved."

The voice from heaven of many waters (all octals in the sea, including the primary sun octal) and as the voice of a great thunder (in singular - c.f. the seven thunders which declare the angel of the church has overcome the churches in captivity to satan as if it were "Babylon".) indicating that the escape for the 144,000 is from but one church (for each believer) overcome as "moving into" Philadelphia (Laodicea exited in obedience to the letters of Christ, most notably under conviction to the letter to Laodicea.), as opposed to all seven churches that are overcome by the angel. (He shall go no more out.) Thus they have escaped the beast through following the lamb wheresoever He goes - through the escape route witnessed to them by the two witnesses of the angel.

The voice of harpers is in celebration and recognition of salvation - The song of those sealed 144,000 is related to the seven cycle of the Holy Spirit: The angel, having overcome by the same seven cycle sets the tune (c.f. musical octave - an idea from someone else I heard online, I don't know who!) This song is sung before the earth (four beasts) and the throne - the scene of the throne and 24 elders. The song in recognition of the seven thunders employed as the musical "scale" opened up by Christ and the angel before them by which they escape. The song - as it were each believer a note in the scale is known only to the 144,000 that have found a rest-state of floating unity in Christ, and all seven notes are "from" the sun octal. Thus the throne of the Father, the lamps, the 24 elders and the four beasts of the sun octal are mentioned as present here (to whom the song is sung).

These 144,000 have not defiled themselves with women: but what are the women here? Clearly there is the great last Church system of mystery Babylon, but more in view is the sin of Adam in capitulating completely to the decision of Eve to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The image to the beast functions in the church as if the church conglomerate was the image herself; but the dialectic process leads those in captivity in the churches to capitulate their decision to that of the dialectic process in the same manner as Adam to Eve. The opposition (only of "Death", a part of the process) to the "hell" in the synthetic life given the image requires submission (capitulation) to the dialectic process. "Riding the process" as an observer (a participant or maker of an objection) is capitulating as Adam to the sin of Eve.

The sealed 144,000 are the firstfruits to God and the lamb, and are chosen by God to be redeemed from among all men: They are the elect, the chosen people of God and along with Christ, who is the firstborn of God are His Sons and Daughters. They are those whom have overcome the beast and it's image - the most refined of all God's flock having exited great tribulation - they are the "most prized fruit" the firstfruits.

These 144,000 have not taken part in the dialectic process concerning their faith (written as the name of God in their foreheads) - there is no lying deice of satan (guile) in their mouths before God. None of them speak like dragons.

Rev 14:6 And I saw another angel fly in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue, and people,
Rev 14:7 Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: and worship him that made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters.
Rev 14:8 And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication.
Rev 14:9 And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand,
Rev 14:10 The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb:
Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.
Rev 14:12 Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus. (KJV)

These three angels represent the completion of the seals, thunders and the trumpets. The first angel of verse 6 refers to the calling to all mankind to be elected (chosen) of God as their creator. This election (choice) is made by God having foreknown all of those that He called. This is the "judgement" referred to, as the sixth seal is opened and the book of life will be shown as completely filled.

The second angel refers to the overcoming of the churches by the angel who is the least in the kingdom of heaven. In obeying Christ the church as left behind the angel is "left desolate" in terms of spiritual authority and righteousness before God. The angel will surely "draw out the flock and leave their habitation desolate to them (that are of Babylon)."

The third angel of verse 9 refers to the trumpet sequence, that the Laodicean conglomerate (as Babylon) holding His people captive is fallen. It is not chosen as a valid vessel for dwelling with God. The church's employment of the locust and scorpion spirits to make Babylon a tree "for every hateful and unclean bird".by employing the dialectic devices of the trumpets shown in the two beasts show that God has judged those left in the image and Laodicean conglomerate as wholly desolate, that is the Laodicean conglomerate is even become as "the synagogue of satan". The numbering of "Death" and "Hell" to 666 shows that since Christ is God, the system opposing Him must be desolate of life.

Verse 10 refers to the coming wrath of God against the beast, the Church and those inside that worship the image. The cup of His indignation is poured out without being lessened (diluted as a "mixture") so that God will be completely satisfied with the outpouring of His wrath. His wrath will be perfected (in satisfying Him) even as His patience is satisfied, in a sevenfold outpouring from seven vials of wrath soon to be handed out.

The ungodly will be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels (the 24 elders and by extension the 144,000) as well as in the presence of the lamb. The ungodly sat as God as it were in God's place, pridefully writing themselves into a book of life (as supposition) of their own imagination as if they were chosen. We see them judged then that they should be condemned as the serpent spirits with fire and brimstone issuing smoke from their mouths, (with the identity of "Death"). That is, that they should be left aside from the life giving power of God in Christ. That they should be left condemned to find "life in themselves" as opposed to given the freely offered eternal life in Christ. (However this is terrible, for "their worm dieth not.")

The condemnation of this judgement is for them to find as it were, their own book of life - however they are not worthy to open the last three seals on the book of life at the Father's right as is Christ. Their punishment is to be both sealed out of the book, and to eternally suffer the result of their pride in rejecting Christ - they have their just reward. Their burning under this judgement lasts forever, and the smoke of their burning obscures any salvation of God. They are sealed out. The ultrafilter is removed, rather than merely disrupted by frustrating the spirit of grace in Christ.

All those who follow after the beast and its image and receive its mark are judged thus. The patience and faith of the saints is to be found inside God's grace, written in the book of life and worthy of the life found in the lamb. In contrasting terms of this chapter we have a distinct separation of the godly and ungodly. (The judgement is set.)
