Rev 14:14–20

14:14–20 A description of the Second Coming as the harvest over which Christ presides (Matt. 13:36–43; cf. Joel 3:12–16)—the “one like a son of man” (1:13; Dan. 7:13, 14). Two harvests are described, grain (vv. 14–16) and grapes (vv. 17–20). These are perhaps two aspects of the same events of judgment. However, the grain harvest may symbolize the harvest of the righteous (Luke 3:17), followed by the harvest of the wicked (grapes).
