“Reaping The Grapes Of Wrath”

And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle. And another angel came out from the altar, which had power over fire; and cried with a loud cry to him that had the sharp sickle, saying, Thrust in thy sharp sickle, and gather the clusters of the vine of the earth; for her grapes are fully ripe. And the angel thrust in his sickle into the earth, and gathered the vine of the earth, and cast it into the great winepress of the wrath of God. And the winepress was trodden without the city, and blood came out of the winepress, even unto the horse bridles, by the space of a thousand and six hundred furlongs. Revelation 14:17-20

Why did I believe it was a apple! Do you believe it was a grape, you might ask?  It says in  {Genesis 2:16And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat: But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.So we call this forbidden fruit, and this forbidden fruit is forbidden.

 There is only one fruit in the Bible that’s forbidden ‘this is the grape’ I see all through in the Bible. {Numbers 6:3 says  He shall separate himself from wine and strong drink, and shall drink no vinegar of wine, or vinegar of strong drink, neither shall he drink any liquor of grapes, nor eat moist grapes, or dried. All the days of his separation shall he eat nothing that is made of the vine tree.} I notice the vine is a tree. Vine tree’ that’s the forbidden fruit.

     Why is the vine tree for a Nazarite “forbidden fruit”? Well, the vine tree is obviously forbidden fruit because it’s a type of blood. The vine tree, grape juice, represents the blood of Christ.  {Matthew 26:26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body. And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it; For this is my blood of the new testament.} Then grape juice is a type of blood!.

     So now, we know that a tree is forbidden, and grape juice is forbidden to the Nazarite; but, if grape juice is a type of blood, then blood should be forbidden to drink. Let’s turn to ‘Genesis 9′, and notice that blood is forbidden. So blood and grape juice are inseparably connected. {Genesis 9:4: But flesh with the life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.}
