People's Bible Notes for Revelation 15:5


Re 15:5 After that I looked. The apostle looks again and Behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened. The tabernacle of the testimony was the Holy of Holies. Into it none but the High Priest entered, and he only to make intercession for the forgiveness of sins. It is the type of the Holy of Holies above, the mercy seat in the heavens where our High Priest intercedes for us, and where the smoke of the incense of prayer arises to God.

Discussion for Revelation 15:5

  • Rebekah Bates on Revelation 15:5
    I enjoy reading and understanding GOD'S word. I do have a question relating to heavens mercy seat.

    Prior to the rebellion and downfall of Lucifer, scripture teaches us that Lucifer held a high ranking position in GOD'S heavenly government as the cherubim who covereth the mercy seat.

    My question is this: Why did the mercy seat and/or GOD'S throne need covering? What or who did it need protection from since it was in heaven? Thank you in advance for your response. Have a blessed day...

    Women are to take a less authoritative role. Women are encouraged to teach other women (Titus 2:3-5). The Bible also does not restrict women from teaching children. The only activity women are restricted from is teaching or having spiritual authority over men. This precludes women from serving as pastors to men.
