Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 15:8


15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke - The cloud of glory was the visible manifestation of God's presence in the tabernacle and temple. It was a sign of protection at erecting the tabernacle and at the dedication of the temple. But in the judgment of Korah the glory of the Lord appeared, when he and his companions were swallowed up by the earth. So proper is the emblem of smoke from the glory of God, or from the cloud of glory, to express the execution of judgment, as well as to be a sign of favour. Both proceed from the power of God, and in both he is glorified. And none - Not even of those who ordinarily stood before God. Could go into the temple - That is, into the inmost part of it. Till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled - Which did not take up a long time, like the seven trumpets, but swiftly followed each other.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 15:8


Re 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke . . . and no man was able to enter into the temple. Does this mean that the heavens are shut against man during this period? Does it mean that no one can enter the true Church until the plagues are poured out? So some have mistakenly maintained. The doors of the kingdom were opened on Pentecost, and will never be closed until the marriage supper of the Lamb. The true meaning is plain. The place of intercession has just been seen. The seven "wrath" angels came forth. The smoke then fills the temple so that no one can approach the place of intercession. The Greek original says "no one", instead of "no man". It means that the Divine purpose is fixed; the wrath angels "shall" pour out their vials, "there is no place longer given for intercession" to prevent the just judgments of God. The time of intercession has passed by, and the time for judgment has come. "No one can enter the temple" to the tabernacle of testimony, the place of intercession, to avert these judgments "till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled".

    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
