Rev. 14 [...]
14:17. And another angel. — Pastor Russell himself, after the harvesting of the saints was finished. (Volumes IV, V, VI are not shown in this strictly Harvest chapter, as they are more used for the upbuilding of the saints than as Harvest instruments. They are, however, shown In Rev. 10:4; 15:8; 16:1-18.)

⚫ The angel symbolizes Jesus
"And another angel came out of the temple which is in heaven, he also having a sharp sickle." (Vs, 17) The angel here mentioned as having the sharp sickle, or vintage knife, is God's instrument with which he destroys Satan's organization. Hence it is Christ. The angel is his messenger who makes announcement of the purpose of the Lord to destroy the enemy organization.
