A WHITE CLOUD Dan 7:13 13"In my vision at night I looked, and there before me was one like a son of man, coming with the clouds of heaven. He approached the Ancient of Days and was led into his presence. Matt 24:30 30"At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. Acts 1:9 9After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.
“The Key elements of interpretation” Of Revelation Chapter 14:14-20 "Take your sickle and reap, because the time to reap has come, for the harvest of the earth is ripe. So he who was seated on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the earth was harvested. " III. REAP! IT IS TIME FOR THE HARVEST! Matt 9: Then he said to his disciples, "The harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. 38Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field." Matt 13:30 30Let both grow together until the harvest. At that time I will tell the harvesters: First collect the weeds and tie them in bundles to be burned; then gather the wheat and bring it into my barn.'" Matt 24:31 31And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.

Gather the clusters of grapes from the EARTH’S VINE (i.e. – the “fruit” of the earth – THE LOST!) 2. Threw them into the winepress of GOD’S WRATH! 3. Trampled OUTSIDE THE CITY! - (Highly symbolic) * Refuse – outside the city * Crucifixions – outside the city * The lost will be OUTSIDE the city! Rev 22: "Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have the right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city. 15Outside are the dogs, those who practice magic arts, the sexually immoral, the murderers, the idolaters and everyone who loves and practices falsehood.
IN THE FINAL ANALYSIS OF LIFE…AT THE END OF ALL THINGS… THERE ARE ONLY TWO KINDS OF PEOPLE IN THE WORLD… “Fruit of the Earth” “Fruit of the Spirit” Belong to the Earth – destined for WRATH Belong to the “Spirit” – destined for RAPTURE! Jesus will sling a sickle and the Angel of God’s Wrath will sling one… CONCLUSION
