People's Bible Notes for Revelation 16:14


Re 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils. The Greek is "demons". They are demoniacal influences, and will show forth false miracles by which to deceive men. To the kings of the earth and of the whole world. They will marshal their forces for the last conflict. The conflict that shall then take place will decide the fate of Babylon. The drying up of the Euphrates will prepare the way for its destruction. For an account of the battle of that great day, see Re 19:11,19.

  • David Morrion
    verse 18though 22 is still yet to be. God destroyed the world with water. The net time he is going to destroy it with fire. Verse 20 says that an earth quake will destroy the mountains and islands were not found. This is still to come.
  • Who were the kings of the earth gathered together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.? Revelation 16: 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon Herod , and out of the mouth of the beast Pilate , and out of the mouth of the false prophet Caiaphas . Psalms 2: 1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed,... Acts 4: 5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes, 6 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem.

  • Scares me. One of the signs of the second coming of Christ. And the end of times.
  • Christopher for verse 15
    Jesus is talking about Christ 's body being the land. Garments are your forests that shade the rock from the scorching sun. The thief comes to take your trees and if you walk in nakedness you become a parched bones. To be covered with new garments means to become covered with snow white mountains that restore the forests and the land body. Your days are numbered as the Fir Trees in the forest. Christ 's days are numbered forever. If you 're with Christ-Jesus you 'd be wise to stop them from removing the only thing that washes your filth and brings white garments. Are you watching or are you bearing false witness against those who are naked in the deserts of another land?
  • The only way to be covered as opposed to being naked is to be robed with Christ 's righteousness. Nothing else will do. Not even all our good deeds - they are just like filthy rags according to Isaiah. Don 't get me wrong. Good deeds are bound to happen as a RESULT of being attached to the vine and bearing fruit but not good deeds per se. Believe in Christ, abide IN Him and He will abide in you and you will bear fruit for His glory and for His everlasting Kingdom, turn to Him and remain IN Him and you will be saved and clothed with His righteousness, and you will not "go naked and be shamefully exposed. " Refer also Is 59:6b, Is 64:6 and Rev 3:17-18
  • RNM 16--8 REV
    REV 16-8...A lot of info Rob but not all accurate, In Leviticus 23:27-32... From evening to evening, you shall celebrate your Sabbath, not sunrise to sunrise, your throwing out false signals if your a child of God Rob? I would have rather have told you privately but I couldn 't, not trying to offend but if we are standing for the Word of God it has to be accurate, right! AMEN!!
