    Barnes' Notes on Revelation 14:16

    And he that sat on the cloud - The Saviour, Revelation 14:14.

    Thrust in his sickle on the earth - To cut down the harvest - that is, to gather his people to himself.

    And the earth was reaped - So far as the righteous were concerned. The end had come; the church was redeemed; the work contemplated was accomplished; and the results of the work of the Saviour were like a glorious harvest.

    Wesley's Notes on Revelation 14:16

    14:16 Crying - By the command of God. Thrust in thy sickle, for the harvest is ripe - This implies an high degree of holiness in those good men, and an earnest desire to be with God.
