Conclusion: There will be preserved during the great Tribulation period a great company out of Israel, who will follow the Lamb and give glory to Him no matter what the cost. There will be also a multitude of Gentiles redeemed by their acceptance and belief in Messiah Jesus at the cost of martyrdom. Woe to those who worship the beast and receive his mark. They will be tormented in hell forever. This is one of the passages that teaches that the torment of hell is eternal, it does not come to an end. Some theologians have suggested that because of God’s love and compassion, at some point the perpetual torment of hell will cease through the total annihilation of the unrepentant.

Striking Facts: Revelation 14: 14-15 – He who bears the golden crown is none other than the Lord Jesus, who will a short time after this be found wearing the crown of universal sovereignty (Revelation 19:12). At the close of the great Tribulation, He will thrust in the sickle to cut down the earth’s harvest of evil. This will be at Armageddon, which will then have come to its culmination (Mark 4:29).
