Wesley's Notes for Revelation 20:11


20:11 And I saw - A representation of that great day of the Lord. A great white throne - How great, who can say? White with the glory of God, of him that sat upon it, - Jesus Christ. The apostle does not attempt to describe him here; only adds that circumstance, far above all description, From whose face the earth and the heaven fled away - Probably both the aerial and the starry heaven; which shall pass away with a great noise. And there was found no place for them - But they were wholly dissolved, the very elements melting with fervent heat. It is not said, they were thrown into great commotions, but they fled entirely away; not, they started from their foundations, but they fell into dissolution; not, they removed to a distant place, but there was found no place for them; they ceased to exist; they were no more. And all this, not at the strict command of the Lord Jesus; not at his awful presence, or before his fiery indignation; but at the bare presence of his Majesty, sitting with severe but adorable dignity on his throne.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 20:11


Re 20:11 And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat upon it. This is one more act in the great drama. The throne of judgment is set. The nations, living as well as dead, are called to stand before God. The white throne indicates purity, triumph, and glory. It is the color of the light. From whose face the earth and the heaven fled away. See Re 21:1. There is to be a new heaven and earth. The old ones are destroyed to be reconstructed.

Discussion for Revelation 20

  • Word
    Lilian really read Matts because We are all changed at the 7th trump and those that don't wait for Christ are going to be seriously in a bad way. God sent this letter which is an easy read set of instructions and the lazy Christians who don't read it and think Jesus loves me I don't have to read it I'm going to fly away. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. False Christ coming is going to tell you the rapture lie
  • Lilian
    God our Father sent Jesus to us so that we all must have life in abundance. Jesus fulfil the scripture and by his blood we are redeemed and pardoned. We are saved by GOD'S GRACE. we are now living by God's grace and not the law. Jesus made everything new our prayers must be PRAISING and WORSHIP JESUS and BE BORN AGAIN IN SPIRIT OBEY HIS WORDS TILL RAPTURE SO THAT OUR NAME WILL BE IN D BOOK OF LIFE
  • Matt
    Those who do not overcome during the first resurrection will have to be taught by God's election during the Millennium (1,000 years). If they fail to follow God afterwards, they will follow Satan and the other ungodly souls into hell. Our Lord is VERY patient, and He does NOT wish to send anyone to hell but Satan. That is why He gives every soul a fair chance to accept Him. 2nd Peter chapter 3
  • Matt
    The rest of the 'dead' are the spiritually dead: those deceived by Satan. The antichrist is the devil: Satan. Those who believe they are going to be raptured are the ones who are spiritually dead. The Lord made it clear His disciples would be going through the tribulation in Matthew ch. 24. Satan's children are setting things up for his arrival. You have to know who the Kenites are. John 8 v.44
  • Elder Annie M. Ellis
    Revelation:1-15 Jesus Christ comes back to set up His millennial one thousand years reign on the earth vv.1-6.There are a number of prophetic references which describe a particular time when Christ will establish a kingdom on the earth 2 Samuel 7-14 Psalm 24:1-10 Isaiah2:1-4 11:5-12 35:1-10 Daniel 2:-44 At this time,the unrighteous dead will be judged v.12 Revelation 20:2-10 See Jude 1:9

    This is spiritual. The virgins part means they haven't been defiled by the harlott (Rome) and been deceived into getting the mark. The ONLY way not to get it is to have the Seal of God. It's IN your forehead being grounded in TRUTH. God gives final warning Come out of her my people..Which will we choose? Satan came to deceive the WHOLE world. Popular opinion must be wrong ! Think, read,understand
