People's Bible Notes for Revelation 20:15


Re 20:15 Was cast into the lake of fire. Into the same lake of fire, that prison house to which have gone the false prophet and the beast, to which has been consigned the dragon, "that old serpent the devil" (Re 12:9 20:2), the "eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels" (Mt 25:41). There shall also be banished those whose "name has not been written in the book of life" (Re 13:8 17:8). This is the second death. As far as Inspiration throws its light upon the sad lot of those consigned to that "lake of fire" (Re 19:20 20:10,14,15), theirs is an eternal fire. When some one has shown that doors of this final prison of the Universe have opened to permit the escape of those who have been consigned to its keeping, then we may perhaps indulge some hope that its prisoners will, in the lapse of endless years, escape from their sad environment.

  • 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
