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.

    This chapter in Revelation touches an important aspect of our Christian journey: Enduring to the end Longsuffering and ultimately Victory. For verse 7 states clearly: He that overcometh shall inherit all things and I will be his God, and he shall be My son.

    i love jesus an the holy spirit,
  • I cracked the code to revelations 13:18. I know who the anti Christ's are and what is going to this earth specifically. Get ready. The lord is here and ready for spiritual war far. Who interested in helping the Lord supply blessings on his bride here on earth. God said we need cash because I do not have anything stored her on earth. He needs your help. I have no idea what he wants it for right now. I just have been rejected fom my church for sharing my phrophecy. Who says you are unable to not worship in your church until I hear a word from God. Hmm. He just did. Since when Is a religious ruler say I must look after my flock. Since when is man ever in charge of a flock. Would that be of God. He is the leader of all flocks. Not man. God looks after the best interests of his flocks. I guess I will move forward seeing I am not worthy to worship amongst them. No worries. I know. I know. I know. I am the chosen one. To God be the glory. He is here and ready to kick some butt. I am honored and humbled. Praise be to God.
