Revelation 14: 144 000, Last messages from heaven to the world and Christ second coming

In Revelation 14 we see the 144 000 again, a specially chosen people

who are cleansed. We then are told that in this time, when the beasts are
working their deception, God will send three wide-spread messages to
the world before Christ return. These messages are to prepare people for
His coming. We are already told that 144 000 have a pure doctrine undefiled by women, a symbol of corrupt churches. Them being mentioned
here can indicate that they will help bring God’s truth out to the world.
The first message starts with a cry for man to turn back to worship God
as creator. At this time the atheist beast has done it’s works and damage,
atheism rejects God as creator and children all over the world are forced
to learn this lie as a truth. Even the pope has declared evolution theory
to be the truth. But in this message, God says that He should rightfully
be worshiped and recognized as the creator of the world. He claims to
the end time, a world of progressed science, that He is, in fact, the creator and that the Creation story is true. He says the message is to “them
that dwell on the earth, and to every nation, and kindred, and tongue,
and people». Everyone is deceived on this matter all over the world false
scientific conclusions made to rule out a God. If God isn’t the creator He
doesn’t have ownership over the planet, He isn’t the creator of mankind
and He has no right to judge. Therefore the message of honoring Him as
creator also tells that a judgment has begun. All man’s cases are in quick
succession brought before the throne of God. He is judging and will
carry out His judgment.
The next angel proclaims that Babylon has fallen. The pagan Christianity
is in Revelation compared to Jezebel, the doctrine of Bileam, a harlot,
and Babylon. All these references talk about the same power in different ways – each way help expose what happened along the way and the
identity of the deceiving power. It tells us how this part of the church
got corrupt, it tells us how they deceive, it tells us how God views it (as
a harlot) and Babylon indicates the origin of its pagan doctrines and
teachings. It was Babylon who inspired the Greek and Roman religion,
and so when Christianity mixed its practices with the Roman religion
it, in reality, became the ones to continue and spread the Babylonian
customs and mentality to the world. They were the new advocates for
Babylonian mysticism and got the world to take part by presenting it all
in Christ name.
In Babylon, the king repented and turned to God but his grandchild
mocked God by taking Gods holy things while praising the gods of
silver and gold. The same night a finger wrote on the wall saying Babylon had been weighed in the balances and found wanting. The judgment
over Babylon had been spoken. God proclaimed Babylons spiritual fall
right before it fell physically. Again in Revelation, we see the proclamation that Babylon has fallen but now it’s talking about the pagan unfaithful form of Christianity. Paganism that had claimed a conversion but in
reality had mixed holy and unholy. Babylon was to be judged because
they had gotten all people to drink “the wine of her fornication”. “Then
they brought the golden vessels that were taken out of the temple of the
house of God which was at Jerusalem; and the king, and his princes,
his wives, and his concubines, drank in them. They drank wine, and
praised the gods of gold, and of silver, of brass, of iron, of wood, and of
stone.» (Dan.5:3-4) And so when it says in Revelation: «For all nations
have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication» it means they
have placed their deception in holy vessels. (Rev 18:3) They have put the
name of God’s holy doctrines and gospel with their paganism. Just like
the old Babylon was judged for doing this crime, so will spiritual Babylon.
They have seduced a whole world with their false Christianity.
The last message of the three angels warns everyone to not take the mark of the beast, or the image of the beast. It explains that those who take
it will be punished by God. They who take part in using state power to
advance and persecute Gods people and God’s times and laws will be
punished in return. The end has come, the end of God’s tolerance. They
who will force God’s people to stop their faithfulness to God will be
punished, and if they chose to obey the false Christianity they will also
be punished. It warns: “If any man worships the beast and his image, and
receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand. The same shall drink
of the wine of the wrath of God». (v.3-10) It says people can either take
the mark on their forehead or their hand. The forehead symbolizes our
decisions and the hand our actions. It’s a conscious choice or it’s a forced
action.
Jesus now reveals who His true people is, they who are under great
pressure but are resisting both the image and the mark: The saints, those
who “have the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus”. (v.12)
By this, we know that the mark of the beast is tied to rebellion against
Gods commandments just as it has been since Eve was tempted in the
garden and until this day. Satan’s agenda has this whole time been to
encourage and get people to be disobedient towards Gods authority. He
is still sitting in the tree telling people they don’t have to worry about
consequences if they eat of the fruit. That their action will bring blessing
and not judgment. The first deception will also be the last.
After these three messages are given to the world we see Christ returning in the clouds as a king ready to gather His faithful to Himself. He is
seen with a sickle in His hand. The harvest has come. Those who have
replaced their allegiance to God with the false system of worship will be
rejected and Christ will “harvest” his remnant and take them with Him.
This is the last remnant, the last and final separation.
