Wesley's Notes for Revelation 6:14


6:14 And the heavens departed as a book that is rolled together - When the scripture compares some very great with a little thing, the majesty and omnipotence of God, before whom great things are little, is highly exalted. Every mountain and island - What a mountain is to the land, that an island is to the sea.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 6:14


Re 6:14 The heaven departed. The old religions, supposed to be of heavenly origin, pass away. Every mountain and island were moved. "Mountain" and "island" are used to denote earthly rulers and kingdoms, the latter referring more especially to European provinces which are often called "the isles of the sea" in the Bible (Es 10:1 Isa 24:15). From the period of Diocletian, the great persecutor, the title "Your Eminence", or, in other words, "mountain", was bestowed upon princes. As a mountain stood above the plain, so the rulers of the earth were exalted.
