To The Right And Left

The remainder of the fourteenth chapter reads as follows.

Rev 14:13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labors; and their works do follow them.
Rev 14:14 And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
Rev 14:15 And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
Rev 14:16 And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.
Rev 14:17 And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle.
Rev 14:18 And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe.
Rev 14:19 And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God.
Rev 14:20 And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs.

We see that those that die in Christ henceforth (from the moment the image is set up with the mark forced upon all) are blessed with rest in in eternal life in Christ - as opposed to those ungodly of man with the mark of the beast as in the previous section of this chapter (see previous page) that are judged as worthy of the fully poured out unlessened wrath of God's indignation.

They that die in Christ at this time are pictured in the start of the chapter as having the Father's name in their foreheads. They no longer have work to do as with the right hand - they may rest from all their labours upon mount Zion. (Their place is with the lamb.)

We now see two angels in this passage that thrust in their sickles to reap the harvest on the Earth. One reaps the believers to the right hand of Christ, the other the vine of the Earth to the left hand of Christ where they are cast out into the winepress of the wrath of God. The first angel that gathers together the elect of God is sat upon a cloud - He is not visible from the Earth, that is, the time of the harvest is a mystery to those on the Earth.

It is interesting to note that the second sickle bearing angel is instructed to reap by an angel from the altar with power over the fire. This fire corresponds to the four horns i.e. the four beasts representing the "Earth" as surrounding the throne, the four of which form a "half day" (four elements of an octal) used to generate the "Earth" in the passage where the two witnesses lie dead, and the subsequent spirit of life regenerates four fire columns and the original sun octal of their testimony as when the witnesses are then standing on their feet before later ascending up to heaven in a cloud (mystery).

Christ is sat at the right hand of God. The verse;

"The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool".

In interpretation we see that the four fire columns generated by the "angel's seven cycle" separate the Earth (as the four horns, candidates for static left-handed triples from four choices of unity) from the life giving spirit of C7 over the sun octal (that reenters into the two witnesses.)

The Earth is the Lord's footstool. Here the reaping of those found in the book of life to be taken to the Lord's right are separated from the Lord's enemies that form the "vine of the earth" which is outside of the life giving "sun octal" generated by Christ. (As shown in the two witnesses.) The former to the Lord's right correspond as the witnesses forming a K4 group of K4 subgroups, and the footstool (Christ's enemies) are opposed as the four earthly elements and placed to the left hand. The four subsequently generated fire columns are from the "half day" of the wider system analogous to the Euphrates which runs through the midst of "Babylon."

Symbology abounds here.

In essence, His enemies have become His footstool (The earth.) All those written in the book of life are separate from the now completely desolate and fallen system of Babylon as found in the Laodicean conglomerate. The angels have truly gathered those that dwell on the earth together in bundles so that the wheat may be separated from the tares in the day of the harvest. The vine of the earth is described as "fully ripe". The book of life is full and all the remaining names on the Earth are no longer offered grace. Time has run out for the ungodly.

The winepress of God's wrath is trod without the city - those that would exit Babylon from now on are under wrath - (as the book of life is full) it would make sense that as grace has been completed those that would escape too late are cut off from finding life in Christ - they are judged as those in the city, likewise bearing the mark of the beast, they are damned.

The blood flows out over an distance of 1600 furlongs. The only significance I see immediately from this figure is that it is equal to 40x40. The five churches of the Laodicean conglomerate fill five months in each of the eight C7 groups over the sun octal. But why do we have two factors of 5x8=40? I do not fully know at this time. As to the significance of the bridles, I can only state again that this number is at this time a mystery.

The word "furlong" is a translation of the greek "stadion" which is otherwise in english a "stadium". Now, a stadium has an "audience" and the common word we see used for a gathering together of people or an "audience" (i.e, an "assembly") is "circe". It is from this word that in english we have the derived word "church". The "stadium" is therefore the site of the assembly, its footprint or "area". The text could then be read as 1600 churches (squared). (A measure of area, one unit is a "stadion") We see that in eight C7 groups over five churches making 40) we see every pair (a,b) of those churches is cut off in the wrath: the result is that adding a "third part" (a+b = c) with "c" within those five "circe" in laodicea to assign to the product of the pair (a,b) shows that the "door has been shut" on laodicea and there is no exit from what is now to become the "lake of fire". The set of laodicea is "closed" in the product (a,b) and is the target of God's displeasure. There is no longer any exit to philadelphia for anyone seeking it.

Addendum Supplemental
The term "horse" in revelation is used to denote the accumulation of static subgroups (or rather the identity element) in the first four seals as well as the multiplicative cosets of additive subgroups in fields in the fifth trump. In any event what we have by "horse" is actually the application of multiplication upon a closed additive set (as the distributive laws). In this case the winepress is now a closed set (a cage for every unclean bird.) and the multiplication is done with elements of different C7 groups. We must acknowledge the implied action of multiplication across such sets. The equivalent of the angel's circuit (mystery of the seven lampstands) is in view in the "great city"! Thus the "horses bridles" also include the transformations between the elements of the various C7 groups, over and upon the five "churches". The "bridles" represent these shortened "circuits" as they may be imagined to be the mechanism by which the woman rides the beast. Likewise they may be imagined to represent the ungodly action of the locusts upon the churches. (The bridles are the action of the key to the bottomless pit.) The "horse" is then the church and the bridles the pneuma of the image, leaving the rider as "Death" or "Hell". The winepress is trodden out "without the city", namely that the Spirit of God within the believer from the "angel up" (in Philadelphia and those overcoming Laodicea) are they that do the treading.

Five elements of two octals paired (as under each seven cycle as left and right handed) - with four possible correspondences of static subgroups to unity gives us another factor of 40. Is this the answer? The first calculation of 40 elements refer to the choice of C7 cycles over each octal - the second calculation here to the number of possible octals. In effect we set up a direct product of 40x40 for the "space" - yet it is termed as a "distance" in the text. The history of mathematics is such that the concept of "area" was not so well understood at the time - commensurable distances were "all the rage" from the philosophers of Greece and the concept of dimensionality and vector spaces were beyond the mathematics of John's day. We are however given the word "space" as to indicate dimension, possibly as an area.

If this direct product is the case we see that the five of seven parts (in blasphemy of the Holy Spirit and the Father) of the Laodicean conglomerate is appointed to wrath, unlessened and poured out fully upon the ungodly - and it is done so in a form that is "just" - answering her refusal to follow the lamb.
