Wesley's Notes for Revelation 16:20


16:20 Every island and mountain was moved out of its place, #Rev 6:14|; but here they all flee away. What a change must this make in the face of the terraqueous globe! And yet the end of the world is not come.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 16:20


Re 16:20 And every island fled away, and the mountains were not found. Islands and mountains denote earthly powers. Perhaps the meaning is that the old lines between states and nations shall pass away, and that henceforth there shall be one nation, one kingdom, one people, that of Jesus Christ.

Discussion for Revelation 16

  • A disciple
    (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!

    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.
  • Who were the kings of the earth gathered together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon.? Revelation 16: 13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the dragon Herod , and out of the mouth of the beast Pilate , and out of the mouth of the false prophet Caiaphas . Psalms 2: 1 Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?2 The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed,... Acts 4: 5 And it came to pass on the morrow, that their rulers, and elders, and scribes, 6 And Annas the high priest, and Caiaphas, and John, and Alexander, and as many as were of the kindred of the high priest, were gathered together at Jerusalem. Acts 4: 26 The kings of the earth stood up, and the rulers were gathered together against the Lord, and against his Christ. 27 For of a truth against thy holy child Jesus, whom thou hast anointed, both Herod, and Pontius Pilate, with the Gentiles, and the people of Israel, were gathered together,
