What Are the Overcomes Like – Reflection on Revelation 14:5

Reflection on Revelation 14:5

Today’s Gospel

And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God. - Revelation 14:5


This verse tells us the behavior of those who follow the footprints of the Lamb. This group of people are honest and beloved by God. No lie or crookedness or deceit is found in their mouth, and in their heart they magnify God. They do not rebel against or resist Him. They can obey and fear God in everything, be of one heart and one mind with Him, and worship Him in spirit and in truth. They are the overcomers who are judged and cleansed by God in the last days. However, we have been deeply corrupted by Satan. In our heart we always consider or plan for our own interests, deceive those above and below us, and tell lies and deceive others. How can God like such deceitful people? How can such people enter the kingdom of God? From this verse, we can know that to be honest people is the goal and direction we should seek.

God says, “You ought to know that God likes those who are honest. In substance, God is faithful, and so His words can always be trusted; His actions, furthermore, are faultless and unquestionable, which is why God likes those who are absolutely honest with Him. Honesty means giving your heart to God, being genuine with God in all things, being open with Him in all things, never hiding the facts, not trying to deceive those above and below you, and not doing things only to curry favor with God. In short, to be honest is to be pure in your actions and words, and to deceive neither God nor man” (“Three Admonitions”).
