MULTIPLE FINAL JUDGMENTS?

Each of the three sevenfold series in Revelation concludes with a final judgment scene at the end of the age.

Final judgment scenes occur several times in the Book of Revelation. All three of the sevenfold series of “seals,” “trumpets,” and “bowls of wrath” culminate in the final judgment, and each time punctuated by terrestrial and celestial upheaval. Those “judgments” are in addition to the one at the “Great White Throne of Judgement” when the wicked are cast into the “lake of fire.”

FINAL JUDGMENT

Following Satan’s defeat, the final judgment unfolds before the Great White ThroneRevelation 20:11-15.

Now, the “Dragon,” the “False Prophet,” the “Beast from the Sea,” and “Babylon” have all been judged. Their conspiracy against the “Lamb” and his followers only ended in their own demise. What they intended for evil the “One Who Sits on the Throne” employed to achieve His purposes.

FINAL INGATHERING OF “GRAPES”

The ingathering of the “grapes” represents the “wrath of God” on all men who have taken the “mark of the beast” – Revelation 14:17-20

Next, Revelation presents the ingathering of the “fruit of the vine,” which is now pressed in the “winepress of the God’s wrath,” the fate of all men who gave allegiance to the “beast” and received its “mark.” Faithful “saints” were gathered into the “sanctuary of God,” but the “inhabitants of the earth” are now “tread underfoot” in His winepress.

FINAL GRAIN HARVEST

Two different “harvests” occur at the end of the age – The reaping of the “grain,” and the ingathering of the “fruit of the vine” – Revelation 14:14-16

In chapter 14, Revelation contrasts two distinct groups: The men and women who follow the “Lamb,” and those who render homage to the “beast,” the “inhabitants of the earth.” And two different fates await each, now presented as two harvests: the “grain” harvest, and the ingathering of the “fruit of the vine.” Both “harvests” occur at the final judgment.

EVERLASTING GOSPEL – COMING HARVESTS

Whether one follows the Lamb or the Beast, one will reap everlasting consequences as a result in the final harvest – Revelation 14:6-7.

The preceding sections presented two very different groups – the “inhabitants of the earth” that rendered homage to the “beast,” and the 144,000 priests of God, the “first-fruits” of the earth purchased by the blood of the “Lamb.” Now, an angelic herald issues the final summons to humanity while time remains before the “final hour.”

SEVENTH TRUMPET, THIRD WOE

The seventh trumpet or “third woe” ushered in the consummation of the kingdom and the final judgmentRevelation 11:15-19.

When the seventh seal was opened, a half-hour of “silence” in heaven ensued before the seven angels began to sound their “trumpets” when the prayers of the “saints” were heard. When the “seventh trumpet” sounded, “loud voices” in heaven declared the triumph of the kingdom and the “Lamb,” for the nations had become his possession as promised.
