# 14

Revelation Chapter 14 declares The Lamb as standing on Mount Zion with 144,000 of the Tribes of Israel in HEAVEN with Him!

They  NOW sing a NEW SONG unto the Lamb which no one could learn.

These were the first FRUITS unto God their Father and the Lamb.

Their HIS Fruits!  His to Receive alone!

The First Fruits are not first in order but in rank.  They are the servant’s of all, therefore they are ranked higher.  Luk 14:10

 But 235 when 3752 thou art bidden 2564, go 4198 and sit down 377 in 1519 the lowest 2078 room 5117; that 2443 when 3752 he that bade 2564 thee 4571 cometh 2064, he may say 2036 unto thee 4671, Friend 5384, go up 4320 higher 511: then 5119 shalt thou 4671 have 2071 worship 1391 in the presence 1799 of them that sit at meat 4873 with thee 4671.

Rev. 12:10-11

The Voices in Heaven proclaim “Salvation, and Strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ;”

“And they overcame him by the BLOOD of the Lamb and by the Word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

The BLOOD of the LAMB was applied to them as it is to us Christians.  The Passover is eaten up, and the blood is applied unto their lives.

The #14 Reprents The Blood of the Lamb in the  PASSOVER.
