Wesley's Notes for Revelation 20:14


20:14 And death and hades were cast into the lake of fire - That is, were abolished for ever; for neither the righteous nor the wicked were to die any more: their souls and bodies were no more to be separated. Consequently, neither death nor hades could any more have a being.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 20:14


Re 20:14 And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. After this judgment day "death and Hades" (Revised Version) also, death and the unseen land of the dead, disappear forever. This is the significance of being cast into the lake of fire, the eternal prison house. Until the end of the Millennium and the final judgment men shall die, but after the grand epoch in the history of the universe, there shall be no more death. The last enemy, death, shall be destroyed. Then shall come to pass the saying that is written, "O! death, where is your sting? O! grave, where is your victory"? (1Co 15:55).

Discussion for Revelation 20

  • 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

    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
  • Makafui
    The bible did not mention any group of people that will eter heaven. What John apostles was saying is any one that is not found in the book of life will be cast into lake of fire
