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.
