People's Bible Notes for Revelation 21:8


Re 21:8 But the fearful and unbelieving. Those wedded to sin have no place in the glorious home prepared for the saints. "The fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and immoral persons, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars", have undergone the second death, the death that has no resurrection, and they can never enter or disturb the holy peace of the glorious city.

Discussion for Revelation 21

  • Irene123
    To Priscilla on Rev.21 -- Read Acts ch. 2, but PRAY first for Jesus to open your (spiritual) eyes. Take note of vs. 37-38.
  • Irene123
    To Curt on 2 Cor. 6:18 -- ye shall be my sons and daughters - refers to life here on earth, to coming out from among the sinners.
  • Curt
    As far as gender in heaven, Paul taught the saints in Corinth that "ye shall be my sons and daughters" (2 Corinthians 6:18). This is very similar to what these verses teach and demonstrate that gender is consistent with what we experience on earth. There will be Sons and Daughters.
  • BB
    Mike Kim, that is a very interesting subject. Rev. 21:7 indicates exactly what you said. I have often considered and wondered the answer to the gender question as it will be in heaven. I tend to think there will be no gender difference between us as spiritual beings but still wonder. We will be like him!
  • Nancy martin
