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.

    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.

    (verses 4-7) Jeremiah 7:29 "...for the LORD hath rejected and forsaken the generation of his wrath." Jeremiah 15:1 "...Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth." Why, we ask, does the Lord keep silence, while the wicked exalt themselves, and go without restraint? Because He's about to destroy them!
  • Chyna Whitaker
    I love you Jesus, please help us Lord. Times are getting very hard for us, we need you Lord to strengthen us. In Jesus's name, I pray, Amen.
  • Obbie Beal
    Verse 1 above says, "And I heard a great voice out of the temple saying to the seven angels, Go your ways, and pour out the vials of the wrath of God upon the earth".

    WOW! To God and Jesus be the All Glory Honor and Praise.

    The clothing is righteousness,let ye be found naked. White clothing. The mouth of frogs is false doctrine. Lies. Frogs catch prey with their tongue. Ya don't pray to saints and Jesus wasn't " just a prophet" ANY religion that teaches any other way than THROUGH Jesus only falls into these categories. The 3 lies satan used on Eve still carry into major religions, even some "Christan" ones
  • David Morrion
    verse 18though 22 is still yet to be. God destroyed the world with water. The net time he is going to destroy it with fire. Verse 20 says that an earth quake will destroy the mountains and islands were not found. This is still to come.
