Wesley's Notes for Revelation 20:14


20:14 And death and hades were cast into the lake of fire - That is, were abolished for ever; for neither the righteous nor the wicked were to die any more: their souls and bodies were no more to be separated. Consequently, neither death nor hades could any more have a being.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 20:14


Re 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. After this judgment day "death and Hades" (Revised Version) also, death and the unseen land of the dead, disappear forever. This is the significance of being cast into the lake of fire, the eternal prison house. Until the end of the Millennium and the final judgment men shall die, but after the grand epoch in the history of the universe, there shall be no more death. The last enemy, death, shall be destroyed. Then shall come to pass the saying that is written, "O! death, where is your sting? O! grave, where is your victory"? (1Co 15:55).

Discussion for Revelation 20

    Reuben, read Ephesians 2:8-9. We are saved by grace through faith. We are not saved by our works.
  • Reuben
    what about people who believe they'll get to by their own merits ?
  • Al
    I guess that means Jesus is the way the truth and the life, no man comes to the Father but through Him. And without Him we can do nothing. I've seen children who were lost or separated from their parents at the store, mall, dept. store, etc. When the children are and reunited with their loved ones they are always crying. Being lost and alone is perhaps the scariest state of mind there is for a little child completely severed from the only love he she knows. I couldn't imagine being eternally separated from my Creator. we weren't designed for that.
  • Will
    Death in the Great Book always refers to separation not inialation.. Eternal beings are eternal which be its very definition cannot be uneternal through inialation. The spirit separated from the Spirit in Gen 3.. The spirit separated from the body all the way through the Scriptures until ressurected together for judgement.. Rev 20 speaks of the final or second separation which is eternal separation from the presence of our Great Creator
  • Shurlan
    Revelations chapter 20 speaks about the first and second death, this shows there is a death off the body and also death to the sole. In the end when everyone is judged by God, there will be the fortunate ones and the unfortunate ones in other words the good people and the bad . The last verse speaks about hell and death being cast into the lake of fire were it will no longer exist . So the answer is yes you need to live a righteous life to gain everlasting life and the glories of God, and if you failed to do so and not accept the salvation of God through Jesus Christ your soul will be eradicated in the second death . Evil will pay the price for being what it is because it does not belong in the presence of good, it's just a matter of time when it will all be set into place .

    i have been struggling with my own identity lately since I am seeing with the right eyes now that I took my glasses off And my senses have seemed to be fused together. Wanted to help out on a larger scale but guess I gotta start building my own arc first.... Thank you for this... I needed it to help me stay focused on the right path that was already payed out for me
