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 20:14

  • JC Rules for verse 14
    The Bible in Revelation says that there will be no more death,that all things old have passed away,so if death is cast into the lake of fire, and hell is cast into the lake of fire, and the wicked are cast into the lake of fire, then it must mean all of them are no more, and don 't exist in eternity...
  • First, one must separate death from hell in Revelation 20:14 to understand why it mentions both. First, Death covers those which lived on earth without considering God or acknowledging Him. Secondly, Hell covers those who like the rebellious angels who were cast out of heaven because they were not in agreement wanted to tell God how to run things.
  • Curious for verse 14
    If God has to "cast" death into the lake of fire does that mean death is an entity?
