Wesley's Notes for Revelation 21:4


21:4 And death shall be no more - This is a full proof that this whole description belongs not to time, but eternity. Neither shall sorrow, or crying, or pain, be any more: for the former things are gone away - Under the former heaven, and upon the former earth, there was death and sorrow, crying and pain; all which occasioned many tears: but now pain and sorrow are fled away, and the saints have everlasting life and joy.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 21:4


Re 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. No sorrow or travail of any kind shall ever enter within the walls of the city. The cry of anguish shall never be uttered, hearts shall never be broken, no tear shall ever dim the eye, and, most glorious of all, death shall be unknown. Death began his sway when man was expelled from Paradise; he ends it when the final judgment condemns Satan, death and hades to enter the lake of fire. The new Jerusalem will be painless, tearless, deathless, because it will be a sinless city. "The former things have passed away".

Discussion for Revelation 21:4

  • Adam on Revelation 21:4
    I can't wait to be in this paradise. I can't imagine the love, the powerful bonds. Words probably can't adequately describe it.
  • Peter on Revelation 21:4
    Dear Jesus, I don 't want to go to this terrible place called hell. Dear Jesus, I confess that I am a sinner in need of the blood of Jesus Christ to save me from eternal hell fire. Dear Jesus, please forgive me for all my sins. Dear Jesus, please come into my heart and save me. Dear Jesus, please wash away all my sins with your precious blood that you shed on the cross for me and for the whole world. Thank you Jesus for saving me. Amen. I don 't tell you this to be rude, but to try and tell you about the great love that God has for you through the Lord Jesus Christ and HOW to get saved. If you are not saved, then I would venture to say that I am probably the first person to ever tell you how to be saved. For God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son The Lord Jesus Christ , that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish In Hell fire , but have everlasting life In Heaven with Jesus . If you refuse to do this then by your own decision you CHOOSE eternal hellfire. That is what God says in the Bible. I 'm sure that you know that no Church can save you, no Pope can save you, no priest can save you. I hope and pray that you are already a born again Christian.
  • MockingBird on Revelation 21:4
    In this life there is , death , sorrow , crying , pain : I believe that the tears God will wipe away is tears of sorrow that we I have not a reward in that I thought I would have. Tears of when I disobeyed God and do not get a reward : Lose : But no lose of reaching heaven . There are degrees of reward in heaven as well there are degrees of reward in Hell. We will get what we worked for . Payday is coming !!!
  • Ojo Vincent on Revelation 21:4
    when one sees the mansion he would have occupied in heaven and sees why he misses it for a lesser one, such a believer will weep. though he made it to heaven but when he saw the crown he should have won and sees the untenable reason why he misses it, he will weep and God will wipe away such people tears. thank you
  • Michelle on Revelation 21:4
    Just lost my son to suicide on December 28, 2014. This passage has given me peace. We don 't know why and I am sure we never will. But to know he is not suffering or in pain helps me go forward.

  • Stinson head on Revelation 21:4
    i think that we better get our life and ask God to forgive us for our sin ,be for it be to late.
  • Bill on Revelation 21:4
    When will God wipe away all tears from their eyes? According to Rev. 21 4, it is after the millennium, after the first heaven and earth pass away end of the earthly kingdom , and are replaced with a new heaven and new earth start of the heavenly kingdom . God does not wipe away all tears immediately following the Judgment Seat of Christ, as many have suggested. No, the Scriptures seem to teach instead that many believers will consciously regret throughout their millennial existence that they did not hate or lose their soul in this life in order to find and keep it in the millennial world to come as determined at the Judgment Seat . Cr. James Hollandsworth KingdomPreparation
