17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, and he also had a sharp sickle. 18 Then another angel, the one who has power over fire, came out from the altar; and he called with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, saying, “Put in your sharp sickle and gather the clusters from the vine of the earth, because her grapes are ripe.” 19 So the angel swung his sickle to the earth and gathered the clusters from the vine of the earth, and threw them into the great wine press of the wrath of God. 20 And the wine press was trodden outside the city, and blood came out from the wine press, up to the horses’ bridles, for a distance of two hundred miles.
God shows no mercy and is ready to release His wrath on the wicked. He was waited ever since the fall of man to restore everything to how He created it and to crush sin forever. The Bible says the beginning of wisdom is to fear the Lord, and why should we fear Him, exactly? He is Almighty God, and He is our Maker; he made us and can destroy us, so He deserves complete reverence. The Lord Jesus collects His saints, gives them their full reward for loving Him when it is time to give the wicked their judgment. He sends His angels to harvest the wicked, not to take them to paradise, but to destroy them. Many of the parables of Jesus are about the Son of Man, coming to pass judgment; Matthew 13 parallels what Revelation 14:17-2o says. The enemy of God are seeds of the Devil; they live their lives, in a lawless manner, against God’s will. Those who say they know God, but cause stumbling blocks for others, the Lord hates, so He does away with them. Parts of scripture describe the judgment of the wicked like hellfire consumes them. Revelation 14:17-20 says the Lord crushes them, like grapes in a winepress, and like grape juice, blood comes out of the bodies of the wicked and splashes far distances. The Lord wants all to see His coming, all to see His rewards and judgments be given. Either a person will receive the glory of everlasting life and glorious body, or they will be crushed and consumed, never seen or heard of again. Sadly many think the mark of the beast is all about buying and selling, but no my brothers and sisters, it is all about worship; if you worship the beast, you give the Devil praise, and you trust in him for your blessings. Do you worship the Lord and give Him thanks o do you give thanks to the beast, the Devil, or yourself. God bless you all; the Lord Jesus loves you, and so do I, Samuel J H.
Matthew 13:38 and the field is the world; and as for the good seed, these are the sons of the kingdom; and the weeds are the sons of the evil one; 39 and the enemy who sowed them is the devil, and the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are angels. 40 So just as the weeds are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age. 41 The Son of Man will send forth His angels, and they will gather out of His kingdom all stumbling blocks, and those who commit lawlessness, 42 and they will throw them into the furnace of fire; in that place, there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the righteous will shine forth like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. The one who has ears, let him hear.
