People's Bible Notes for Revelation 20:13


Re 20:13 And the sea gave up the dead which were in it. A symbol of the lost dead of whom no man knoweth. And death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them. "Death and Hades" (Revised Version). The unseen world which hides from our view those who have departed from earth. The thought of the verse is that "all" the dead shall be judged.

Discussion for Revelation 20

  • A disciple
    Dejvi Kadivnik; Sorry for not getting back to you sooner. The Spirit said through David in Psalm 139:8 "If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: if I make my bed in hell, behold, thou art there." Isaiah 40:22 "It is he that sitteth upon the circle of the earth.." From God's vantage point in the heights He beholds all the children of men; and time is subject to eternity. So too your questions!
  • A disciple
    Ron; did you ever read closely Ezekiel 16; particularly the last 10 verses or so? There are a couple of very interesting things you may like. First, about Sodom; that most to this day only associate it with perversion and unrestrained lechery. But the way God describes her sins, it totally sounds like much of the modern world around us! Also, God plans to restore people to their former estate.
  • Ron
    Everything comes full circle, what God started in Eden will be fullfilled. It appears that People will be born in eternity. Note, there are millions of flesh and blood survivors on earth at vs 8-10 that do not die. All the Jews survive and I assume a remnant of gentiles. Thus you have Rev. 21:24-26 and Rev. 22:2 - the Tree of Life. satan's stunt in Genesis was only a temporary road block for God.
  • A disciple
    Verse 4 - "..and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshiped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands.." We tend to think of the 'end times' as something obscure in the future; but this 'war' has been in the world since Cain, and Nimrod. The "Mark" is spiritual!
  • Dejvi Kadivnik
    To A disciple: I apologize if you perceived me and my comment as superior or pseudo-intellectual. That was not my intention. However, I stand by my statement, which is based on research of the Scripture. If you have any specific criticism regarding my statement, backed up by an actual Bible citation, which undermines my statement, please provide it.

    Tormented for ever, Rev.20:10,Rev. 14:10,in the presence of the Lamb. Lamb=Lamb of God=Jesus=God.His cup of indignation will be poured out,where your worm does not die. Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.Interesting how He shows mercy by warning us,He warned people when he was on earth in the flesh,he warns us by way of His word; those of us that know the truth,yet most are not afraid.
