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.

Discussion for Revelation 20

    I believe that Jesus is coming to judge the whole world , He will pay everyone according as their work shall be. He knows who are His.
  • Sharon
    We cannot begin to imagine how we have gone astray from god but to die is gain in Christ. We see how Satan that wicked adversary is roaming seeking who he will devour.Friends my question to you is where would you spend your eternity? Where death meet you judgment is there .So is your life hidden in Christ? I say to the whole world make your calling and election sure, find Jesus-quickly. Repent.
  • A disciple
    Celia; Christians are not mistaken about the symbolic name that God has given to that father of lies and adversary of all truth! God who made the serpent knows what is its nature, using that to describe the devil. It has been common knowledge from ancient times who is the Serpent! “And he laid hold on THE DRAGON, THAT OLD SERPENT, which is THE DEVIL, and SATAN, and bound him a thousand years,”
  • Katrina
    Souls we are to tell people about Jesus and what he did for them at Calvary he died for all so we wouldn't have to end up in a devil's hell he said who so ever will call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved not hopefully or maybe but shall believe on the Lord God , souls,souls Souls for the kingdom of God we are to tell others of him and pray also for souls
  • 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.
