  • Read & Reflect

    REVELATION 14:4-5

    “This description of the saved multitude is as pictorial as their number. They are viewed as males who did not defile themselves with women, most plausibly because they were soldiers of the Lamb engaged on active service (cf. the OT regulations concerning holy war, which include abstention from sexual relations: Dt. 20:1–9; 23:9–14; 1 Sa. 21:4–5; 2 Sa. 11:6–13). The symbolism could include abstaining from ‘fornication’ with the harlot Babylon (cf. v 8).” [1]


  • Reflect on the description of the redeemed as those who “follow the Lamb wherever he goes,” along with the passages below:Matthew 4:19–20 (ESV) 

    19 And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.” 20 Immediately they left their nets and followed him.

    John 10:3–4 (ESV) 

    3 To him the gatekeeper opens. The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. 4 When he has brought out all his own, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice.

    John 12:26 (ESV) 

    26 If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.

  • What would it look like for me to follow Jesus “wherever he goes”?


  • REVELATION 14:6-7
  • What is the content of the “eternal gospel” and to whom is it proclaimed?
  • How has the gospel been proclaimed to me, and through me?[1]  Beasley-Murray, G.R. (1994). Revelation. In D.A. Carson, R.T. France, J.A. Motyer, & G.J.
