Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 15:2


15:2 The song was sung while the angels were coming out, with their plagues, who are therefore mentioned both before and after it, verses 1 - 6. #Rev 15:1 |- 6 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire - It was before clear as crystal, #Rev 4:6|, but now mingled with fire, which devours the adversaries. And them that gained, or were gaining, the victory over the wild beast - More of whom were yet to come. The mark of the beast, the mark of his name, and the number of his name, seem to mean here nearly the same thing. Standing at the sea of glass - Which was before the throne. Having the harps of God - Given by him, and appropriated to his praise.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 15:2


Re 15:2 I saw as it were a sea of glass. In Re 4:6 "the sea of glass, clear as crystal", was seen about the throne of God. It is the emblem of the calmness and purity of God's rule. Here the sea is mingled with fire, a symbol always denoting judgments. This shows that the time for judgments, coming from the throne of God, has come. And them that had gotten the victory over the beast. These are the redeemed of Re 14:1, who are there seen standing with the Lamb on Mount Zion. They now engage in triumphant songs over the approaching overthrow of their great enemy. Having the harps of God. Musical instruments wholly dedicated to his praise.

Discussion for Revelation 15

  • Word
    Deut. 31 vs 28 tells of the song of Moses and its in Deut. 32 and has a lot of information about what will happen. Satan has a small people right now on earth a stage of the locust and the next stage will be Satans priest with iron breastplates and soft spoken words telling the people of the world come to Jesus but it's a false messiah with power no man has seen before and the world deceived.
  • Sabbath keeper and Wife
    Can you imagine the awesome majesty of a sight like that? Angels, clothed in righteousness coming out of where the Arc and the commandments under the throne of God are kept. They are about to "be about their Father's business" in a bad sort of way. Testimony has to do with Spirit of Prophecy (Rev. 19:10) so plagues are for those decieved by beast system, not keeping God's commands (Rev12:17)
  • Wallace
    Revelations inspires my soul God's raft is real Angels are rejoicing Jesus Christ is our Savior and Lord. Praise him your blessing is on the way.
  • Timothy a eskel for verse 4
    One of my favorite passages!the greatness of God is beyond human description and explanation.our only response is to simply do and obey what God tells us to do in His word and we will reap the tremendous benefits and blessings of it. As the vapors of worship ascend to Him the showers of blessings descend to us!Hallelujah!
  • This is on a spiritual level. The temple of God is not made by the hands of men. The one destroyed over and over represented that heavenly representation and when those given the covanant6 said they would yet turned away that temple was destroyed. WE are the temple of God. His covenant is not community based but individual based. Every man will answer for his part in that temple... unfortunately some will be ripped out
  • The first will be last and the last will be first.
