People's Bible Notes for Revelation 20:13


Re 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it. A symbol of the lost dead of whom no man knoweth. And death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them. "Death and Hades" (Revised Version). The unseen world which hides from our view those who have departed from earth. The thought of the verse is that "all" the dead shall be judged.

    This may help you. Read the chapter.

    Rev 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
    Rev 7:10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
  • Makafui
    The bible did not mention any group of people that will eter heaven. What John apostles was saying is any one that is not found in the book of life will be cast into lake of fire
  • EMMANUEL BWALYA
    Yes, the 144,000 which were sealed from the twelve tribes of Israel will be with Him together with them the shall believe on His name ( from the Gentile age - John 1:10 - 13). We became children of God before we were fleshly born here on earth but by predestination. ( Romans 9:23 - 25 says He shall call us His people who were not His - not in 144,000)
  • Chris
    No, the 144,000 (12,000 from each of the 12 tribes of Israel) sealed, virgin, Jewish men who will preach the gospel during the first three and a half years of the "Great Tribulation," will either endure, and go into the earthly Kingdom of Jesus Christ, or be slain and resurrected, to also go into the Kingdom. That's an errant teaching of JWs, that they think it's them. It's not.
  • Janel bucsko
    So only 144,000 only go to heaven? Where do the rest of us go?
  • Lu2677
    Shirley, do you believe Rev. 20:15, if you do, then 1-14 is very clear, what it says, is what will happen. Amen. Even so, come Lord Jesus come. Amen
