Bible Commentary for Revelation 15:8

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 15:8


15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke - The cloud of glory was the visible manifestation of God's presence in the tabernacle and temple. It was a sign of protection at erecting the tabernacle and at the dedication of the temple. But in the judgment of Korah the glory of the Lord appeared, when he and his companions were swallowed up by the earth. So proper is the emblem of smoke from the glory of God, or from the cloud of glory, to express the execution of judgment, as well as to be a sign of favour. Both proceed from the power of God, and in both he is glorified. And none - Not even of those who ordinarily stood before God. Could go into the temple - That is, into the inmost part of it. Till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled - Which did not take up a long time, like the seven trumpets, but swiftly followed each other.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 15:8


Re 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke . . . and no man was able to enter into the temple. Does this mean that the heavens are shut against man during this period? Does it mean that no one can enter the true Church until the plagues are poured out? So some have mistakenly maintained. The doors of the kingdom were opened on Pentecost, and will never be closed until the marriage supper of the Lamb. The true meaning is plain. The place of intercession has just been seen. The seven "wrath" angels came forth. The smoke then fills the temple so that no one can approach the place of intercession. The Greek original says "no one", instead of "no man". It means that the Divine purpose is fixed; the wrath angels "shall" pour out their vials, "there is no place longer given for intercession" to prevent the just judgments of God. The time of intercession has passed by, and the time for judgment has come. "No one can enter the temple" to the tabernacle of testimony, the place of intercession, to avert these judgments "till the seven plagues of the seven angels were fulfilled".

Discussion for Revelation 15:8

  • Kevin on Revelation 15:8
    why did the Holy Spirit deem it important to show us the tabernacle in heaven being filled with the glory of God just before the final judgements are poured out upon the rarth

    Kevin, may the Holy Spirit grace you with (spiritual) understanding and (spiritual) wisdom.

    1 Corinthians 15:45 Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual.

    Revelation 11:15...... The kingdoms or this world (natural and can be seen with natural eyes) are become the kingdoms of the Lords (spiritual and not seen with natural eyes).......

    Revelation is symbolic and can not be discerned with natural eyes, but the Holy Spirit has to grace you with spiritual eyes. Ask and you shall receive.

    Revelation 15:8 And the temple was filled with smoke from the glory of God......

    1 Corinthians 3:16 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God DWELLETH in you?

    John 2:19 Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up (21) but he spake of the temple of his body.

    1 Corinthians 12:27 Now ye are the body of Christ......

    Revelation 15:8 And the temple (you and the Holy Ghost, which is Christ in Spirit) was filled with smoke from the glory of God, and from his power; and no man was able to enter into the temple, till the seven plagues were fulfilled.

    Since all mankind was given access to the Holy Ghost at pentecost; therefore, the plagues were pour out before pentecost. Most of mankind is looking through natural eyes; therefore, they think they will be able to see these plagues, but the plagues being carried out are in the spiritual form and can't be seen with natural eyes, but the same results will occur on those they are imposed on.

    You have to become well acquainted with the prophecies to even begin to understand Revelation and if the Holy Ghost is not guiding you it is impossible to understand. Ask and you shall receive.

    There are many more details and many more scriptures that clarify Revelation 15, but not near enough spare to share in 2000 words.

    The Spirit grace you with eyes to see.
  • Ms me on Revelation 15:8
    This is on a spiritual level. The temple of God is not made by the hands of men. The one destroyed over and over represented that heavenly representation and when those given the covanant6 said they would yet turned away that temple was destroyed. WE are the temple of God. His covenant is not community based but individual based. Every man will answer for his part in that temple... unfortunately some will be ripped out
