The Fulcrum of Heaven



Through Revelation 14, Louie Giglio helps us see Jesus is the lamb at the center of Heaven and His grace is the fulcrum. We don’t get to decide how our eternity plays out but His plan and heart for us is to be with Him forever.

Key Takeaway

Fear God and give Him glory.

In Revelation 14, we see the Lamb. Not "a lamb," but the singular Lamb. This encompasses how grace is the fulcrum of heaven.

Fulcrum is defined as 'the thing that plays a central or essential role in an activity, event, or situation.'

Even though in Revelation 13 and Psalm 2:1-2 we saw how the beast was trying to plot against the Lamb (the Son), we can trust God and His plans, because they will prevail. Revelation 14:1 and Psalm 2:4-6 displays this through Mt Zion (the mountain of God), reminding us how the Son reigns.

The point of Revelation is to endure, be patient, and be faithful to Jesus.

There are differing opinions about the rapture and the symbolism of the 144,000. Some believe they are people who came to faith during tribulation, while others believe that it's a figurative number which represents all believers.

Revelation 14:1 clearly identifies the 144,000 with His name and His Father’s name; not a denominational name, church name, or Christian leader’s name, but the Name of Jesus.

Heaven is loud and bold. We this in Revelation 14:2-3 through the roar of the harps, and the song of the redeemed, who were known for their song.

They are not perfect, yet they remained true and pure to Jesus by living like they are redeemed. Grace is the fulcrum of Revelation.

Worship is things we say AND the way we live, because it's more than a song - it's a lifestyle.

The characteristics of the three angels are different from one another:

  • The first angel proclaimed the gospel.
  • The second angel proclaimed the fall of the Beast and the system opposed to Messiah.
  • The third angel proclaimed the consequence of choosing the Beast over the Messiah.

You may be wondering, "How can a good God send anyone to hell?"

When He created you, His intention would be that you would be with Him forever.

However, God will give you the choice of how you spend eternity—with or without Him. If you don't choose Him, it will not be an eternity you decide. It will ultimately be a state of eternal suffering, aware that you are devoid of the highest beauty and greatest love.

One of the scariest realties in life is that, if you insist, God will let you do it your way.

Is this a harsh reality? Possibly the most harsh reality of all.

If you are a follower of Christ, you can "rest in peace" because all you have done for God is coming with you. In Revelation 14:13 we read, "Yes says the Spirit. Rest from labor. Your deeds will follow you."

Do you see the full picture of the Gospel? He took the wrath in our place, and He offers salvation to everyone who has faith in Him.

We don't get to choose anyone else's story; we are just the messengers.

In Revelation 14:7, we see the takeaway: "Fear God and give Him glory."

Worship Him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.


"We are a part of God's continuum, and His plan all along for you and me is that we would be with Him forever."
