Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 6:14


6:14 And the heavens departed as a book that is rolled together - When the scripture compares some very great with a little thing, the majesty and omnipotence of God, before whom great things are little, is highly exalted. Every mountain and island - What a mountain is to the land, that an island is to the sea.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 6:14


Re 6:14 The heaven departed. The old religions, supposed to be of heavenly origin, pass away. Every mountain and island were moved. "Mountain" and "island" are used to denote earthly rulers and kingdoms, the latter referring more especially to European provinces which are often called "the isles of the sea" in the Bible (Es 10:1 Isa 24:15). From the period of Diocletian, the great persecutor, the title "Your Eminence", or, in other words, "mountain", was bestowed upon princes. As a mountain stood above the plain, so the rulers of the earth were exalted.

    The book of Revelations is an allegory: the 7 churches are the 7 energy centres and major glands of the body. The 33 years that Jesus Christ lived for correspondent to the 33 vertebrae that we each have in our spine. The 24 elders are the nerve ends that go from the thalamus in our brains to the stomach.

    seal 1 2 3 4 are already in full production; these seals = 1 and this 1 = many that (because it is the last days) are allowed to control by wars and food control /economic, also diseases (don't know where I catch this cold lol). Using their power (controlling modern-day conveniences where applicable ) they (though under GOD's control) are conquering house by house, nation by nation.

    yes satan does mock. Just like he uses idol "santa". You have heard the song about this gross idol.."he sees you when your sleeping, he knows when your awake...he knows if you've been bad or good, so be good for heavens sake". A counterfeit to an all knowing
  • Romans 14 KJV
    Why do you think the crown wearing rider of this white horse has a bow but no arrows?? How then will he go about conquering to conquer?? He will do it with "PEACE". What did Jesus say what will happen when they proclaim peace??. The rider here is indeed the "antiChrist". Remember Satan mocks flips everything God proclaims.. Always rightly divide and match scripture with scripture..
