Revelation 14:6

Another angel (allon aggelon).
A new turn in the drama comes with each angel (7:2; 8:3,13; 10:1). Here the angel is seen "flying in mid heaven" (petomenon en mesouranhmati), while in 8:13 John heard him "flying in mid heaven" (genitive case of same participle, which see). This one is in the sight and hearing of all.

Having (exonta).
Accusative singular agreeing with aggelon like petomenon (flying), but legwn in verse 7 is nominative, as if a new sentence like legwn in 4:1.

An eternal gospel (euaggelion aiwnion).
The only use of euaggelion in John's writings, though the verb euaggelisai (first aorist active infinitive epexegetical with exonta like John 16:12) occurs here and in 10:7. Here it is not to euaggelion (the gospel), but merely a proclamation of God's eternal (aiwniov here alone in the Apocalypse, though common in the Fourth Gospel and I John) purpose. Origen even took this "eternal gospel" to be another book to be written! Note the double use of epi (with accusative after euaggelisai and the genitive with ghv). See 5:9 for the races, etc.
