People's Bible Notes for Revelation 16:14


Re 16:14 For they are the spirits of devils. The Greek is "demons". They are demoniacal influences, and will show forth false miracles by which to deceive men. To the kings of the earth and of the whole world. They will marshal their forces for the last conflict. The conflict that shall then take place will decide the fate of Babylon. The drying up of the Euphrates will prepare the way for its destruction. For an account of the battle of that great day, see Re 19:11,19.

Discussion for Revelation 16

  • A disciple
    Alex; Sentimental and wishful thinking is not how we understand and seek the things of God. Remember Peter's well wishing toward Jesus, and how he thought the talk about going to the cross was something to be rejected, like it was just "negative thinking?"The cross was the only way to save us from sin; so too it is only by utter destruction of fire that the wicked and all cause of sin be removed.
  • Alex
    Disciple there are too many scriptures that say this earth is gonna abide forever,seed tine and harvest forever, Davids saw this earth at REST and full of his Glory, Isaiah says Knowledge shall cover the earth as the waters cover the seas,but Jesus is very bold and says thy kingdom come thy will be done (right here on this earth)The ferverent heats is his baptism of fire, his lake of fire etc gb
  • A disciple
    In the Law of the LORD it is written, that the wicked shall be punished by the same evil that they thought to do to others; and so the first vial of wrath is for all their cruelties and poisoning the world. "..upon the men who had the character or stamp of the beast..ULCERS; injurious to health, having a bad odor, extremely serious or worrying in its effects, hard to bear, very severe, painful.."

    A child of the King need not fear the judgments foretold in the book of Holy Scripture. We are kept by His Blood!

    "And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand".-John 10:28

    Verse 12: This prophecy foretold that the "waters" of Babylon the Great would dry up. Many people would no longer support Babylon the Great or false religion.
