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

  • 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.
