Revelation Chapter 20 Discussion



 
  • Davie miller on Revelation 20:14
    What does the bible mean buy the second death does it mean that your soul will be destroyed for ever like you never excised or does in mean you still burn for ever because death means you die so if God says they were thrown in to the lake and this is the second death. And death means to die wouldn't also mean the second death is your soul dies like you was never created I just don't understand what that verse means about the second death
  • Mild Bill - in Reply on Revelation 20:14
    Davie Miller,

    The second death is similiar to the first death, a separation. In the first death a person is removed from their body and our present position in the time/creation sense of "world". In the second death a person is sent to "outer darkness" apart from God for eternity. For a believer, the experience is eternally exhilarating and joyful. For someone who did not believe, there is torment simply because God is. You see, while here in this form of life, both believers and non-believers may neglect God in our thoughts, but once we leave here, God is never absent in our mind. When he really is in our hearts as Lord and Savior, we never lose our place in his heart, forever.
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 20:14
    I believe that we need to understand what 'death' is when seen in the Bible. If you ask a man on the street, he will think of death as just a cessation of life & the body disposed of. But the Bible generally speaks of death as more than cessation of life on Earth, but of the requirement to enter into another dimension. When Adam & Eve were told that they would die if they disobeyed God by eating of that tree, indeed they would experience physical death, but much more, that death would take them into the next dimension of existence. So physical death (as in a deep sleep) is generally understood as a 'curtain' that we pass through into the next life. However, as in John 11:14, Jesus also spoke of just a present bodily death of Lazarus.

    So when you read of a Second Death (Rev 20:14), there must of necessity be a First Death. So the First Death is that first experience that we will enter as we close our eyes to this physical world & become aware of the next world. Even though there are other views on when & how this happens, my understanding is that if we are saved through faith in Jesus, we (our souls) are transported into Heaven (pre-Cross: there was a holding stage where the righteous & unrighteous were held: Luke 16:19-31)). But at Jesus' death & resurrection, those righteous were removed from there.

    So the Second Death now only applies to those who have died without Christ, whether from days past or yet in the future. They no longer will be held in Hell suffering awaiting judgement, but at the close of the age, they, together with the Devil, his angels, the Antichrist & Death & Hell itself, will be consigned into the Lake of Fire for all eternity (Mark 9:43-48). As for those in Heaven or in God's new heaven & earth (Revelation chapter 21) who will live into eternity in God's Presence, so too will those who have been sent to the Lake of Fire, be enveloped in continual flames for all eternity. Some believe in a reprieve - the Bible doesn't indicate this at all.
  • Stacy - in Reply on Revelation 20:14
    Davie Miller, regarding Revelation 20:14. I think you are accurate when you say, you die and you cease to exist, it's as though you never existed. God is a Holy, Just Merciful God. After the judgement, God will bring forward the second death, which is eternal.

  • Charley on Revelation 20:3
    excuse me there are no apostles today if you claim you are an apostle

    did you actually see the lord jesus christ face to face when he rose again

    from the dead? answer is obvious so therefore you are not an apostle,

    nor false prophets which are many today, the bible says to try the spirits

    whether they are from GOD for many false prophets have gone out into

    the world.1st john4-1
  • Apostle Benito Abad Gutierrez on Revelation 20
    Everything is fine and dandy, I love yours opinions and and your knowledge of the scriptures but there is lot that you all need to know before you be effective to Jesu, did you know that there are millions of years between the first verse of the bible and the second?,what was the name of the woman before the fall?Did you know that the creator became God of the Israelites in MT. Sinai but not of the rest of the world, thats why he became only god of the israelites.there are only two nations in the world the Israelites and the Gentiles and MORE.
  • Old Earth Theory vs The Bible by Mishael - in Reply on Revelation 20
    John 3:16

    For God so loved THE WORLD that he gave his only begotten Son, that WHOSOEVER believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    Last time I checked, that scripture still stands prominently in the Bible. Jesus was crucified for everyone. He suffered the wrath of God for everyone. Willingly. And He was raised up on the 3rd day. Victorious!

    What you mentioned about pre-Genesis is called, "Old Earth Theory". It is a Cult of people that teach something that is not recorded in the Bible. "In Beginning" is when God created TIME. That is when the story began.

    The whole ENTIRE BIBLE is about a PERSON. His name is Jesus.

    John 1:1-5

    1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

    2. The same was in the beginning with God

    3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

    4. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

    5. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

    If God had included a Book and Chapters about pre-Genesis; it would be in the Bible. But they didn't do that. The Book of John clearly explains that. God gave us archaeology, astronomy, and science to find HIM; to SEE HIM.

    Romans 1

    17For therein is the righteousness of God revealed from FAITH TO FAITH: as it is written, The just shall live by faith.

    18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

    19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

    20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and GODHEAD, so that they are WITHOUT EXCUSE.

    21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him NOT as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
  • Apostle Bnny Gutierrez on Revelation 20
    Thats why people are confused about the coming of jesus in the year 2000 is not the end of the world is the end of the ERA, the believers ERA, Jesus will come in 1993 and pick up the believers, those that have receive Jesus will stick to him as a magnet and 7 years later they will come with him so he can have power and authority to touch down on earth and this the time when satan will be loch in the cave for 1000 years those 1000 years is what I call the seventh day the they of Rest

    Interesting. Which calendar are you using?
  • David Dyck on Revelation 20
    I feel that those in ch 20 verse 4 are those who have died in the seven years of tribulation as Gods people but have been marterred but the rest of the dead rightous and sinners will remain in there graves waiting for that last ressurection. Wouldn't that be why some in that last judgement will be saved and some will be cast into hell or the lake of fire. Maby those that miss heaven in the last judgement are those did not truly truly live for God but justified themselves. Just the way I see it.
  • Keith Vaughan on Revelation 20
    Revelation Chapter 20 is about how the devil can influence people, to such an extent that they worship false images and satanism instead of praising and to worship God and the Holy Spirit. God is for every person regardless of age, sex, sexual orientation, race and background and try not to make the devil influence a person's judgement and the way how they live.

  • Gods Word is Inspired not a Suggestion on Revelation 20:6
    2 Timothy Chapter 3

    14 But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned [them];

    15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

    16 ALL scripture [is] given BY INSPIRATION OF GOD, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

    17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

    Wesley's Notes 2 Timothy 3:16

    All scripture is inspired of God - The Spirit of God not only once inspired those who wrote it, but continually inspires, supernaturally assists, those that read it with earnest prayer. Hence it is so profitable for doctrine, for instruction of the ignorant, for the reproof or conviction of them that are in error or sin, for the correction or amendment of whatever is amiss, and for instructing or training up the children of God in all righteousness.

  • Romeo Bien on Revelation 20:6
    1- Are these the same people from Revelation 7:15-17

    2- And, are these people only Jews? Or both Jews and gentiles?
  • Drew - in Reply on Revelation 20:6
    Romeo, ...part2

    I think it would be more accurate if we would distinguish between the descendants of the house of Judah ('Jews'), descendants of the house of Israel ('Israelites'), and gentiles (those who are not descended from Jacob (Israel)).

    Both houses of Israel (house of Israel and house of Judah) generally came to reject God and were eventually swept away by agents of God's anger.

    The house of Israel (sometimes called Ephraim or Samaria) was taken into captivity by the Assyrians.

    Jews self identify as descendants of the house of Judah. They were largely taken into captivity by the Assyrians just a few years after the house of Israel was taken by them. The remainder of them (Jerusalem) were taken captive into Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar a century or more later. These Jews (of Jerusalem) who were taken into Babylonian captivity were given permission to return sometime after 70 years of captivity. At Jesus' first advent He received a mixed reception from these Babylonian Jews. According to tradition Jesus' disciples took the His message to different parts of the world where they were martyred for His Word.

    The rest of Israel (house of Judah and house of Israel) did not return to the land from Assyria and are sometimes referred to as the lost tribes of Israel. God said that He would sift them through the nations and will regather them. It is my belief that they would come to be receptive to the teachings of Jesus and accept Him as their Saviour. For the most part they no longer know who they are and would even refer to themselves as gentiles just as the New Testament does. There is a fair amount of general support for this view in the Bible.
  • Drew - in Reply on Revelation 20:6
    Romeo,

    Verse 4 seems like a good indication of their identity (Revelation 20:4). "... 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; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years."

    Since those who suffered persecution/death for the witness of Jesus were by and large what you call "gentiles", I would venture to guess that most of them are "gentiles" with some believing "Jews" among them.

    I think it would be more accurate if we would distinguish between the descendants of the house of Judah ('Jews'), descendants of the house of Israel ('Israelites'), and gentiles (those who are not descended from Jacob (Israel)).

The 'Current Events' page is a collection of thoughts and discussions on today's 'Current Events' and how our website helps to explain and examine them and put them into a 'spiritual' context.

    As a direct result of religious and made-made doctrines and commandments (Matthew 15:9; Mark 7:7; Col.2:22), history has proven that mankind does not follow the first three commandments (Ex. 20:3-7), bur rather follows after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Rev. 12:9). History has also proven that this whole world has been deceived as confirmed by the Word of God inRevelation 12:9, and history has also proven that 'Religion' is a deception that Satan is using to transform himself into an angel of light and an apostle of Christ (2Cor. 11:13-15).

    National news media in the USA will most likely not report this story. You may have to read national Israeli news, Jerusalem Post.
  • In the News Today on Revelation 20:3
    THIS WAS IN THE NEWS this morning!

    This is a threat, that if it comes to pass (it really happens), God is going to prevent all the bombs they launch at Israel, from hitting the ground.

    It would be a miracle of the same magnitude as opening the Red Sea so the Israelites could flee Pharaoh, in the Old Testament.

    If you want to verify the story is true, go to the ACLJ website and read it. Sign the petitions against it.

    I am so grieved that this country would now elect a president that most likely, will not act Against this threat.

    It's also a sign of the times that we are living in; approaching. Let Gods Word be true, and everyone who denies it, a liar.

    Prophesies do not lie. If it's written, it will happen, as written. I'll be back later when I locate that prophesy in the prophetic books. I'll post it. Glory to God in the Highest!! We're going to our new home soon.

    "In a huge development, the U.S. has brokered a major peace deal between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

    Showing their true colors, Palestinian leaders are calling this PEACE deal a "stab in the back." The Palestinian terrorist groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad were quick to condemn peace and try to stir up further animosity.

    This is a major move for the security of our ally Israel.

    Yet, the anti-Israel U.N. and terrorist agitators in the Middle East - like Iran - want to destroy Israel. The president of the Palestinian Authority even threatened that "MILLIONS OF FIGHTERS" would attack Jerusalem and Israeli settlements "shall all be destroyed." Air attacks.

    We were there when the U.S. embassy was moved to the eternal capital of Israel - Jerusalem. We're aggressively working to defend Israel's interests.

    Just days ago, we sent a new legal letter to the U.N. Security Council to defend Israel's interests. And we're in federal court in our 3 major Israel-related cases, where "Palestinian" agitators are threatening Israel's interests with bogus lawsuits.

    To FRED SCANLAN

    Please consider the following:

    God unites His people (the believers) by His Spirit (John 4:24; Eph. 4:3-6,13).

    Luke 9:56. For the Son of man is not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them.

    Matthew 11:6. And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me (Isa. 8:14; Matthew 13:57; 24:10; 26:31; Rom. 9:32; 1 Cor. 1:23; 2:14; Gal. 5:11; 1 Peter 2:8).

    John 3:19. And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.

    Luke 11:22. But when a stronger than he shall come upon him, and overcome him, he taketh from him all his armour wherein he trusted, and divideth his spoils.

    1 John 4:4-6. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he than is in the world. They are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them. We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

    Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice ( John 8:47; 18:37).

    You search the scriptures for in them ye think that ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life (John 5:39,40).

    He that is spiritual judgeth (discerneth) all things, yet he himself is judged by no man (1 Cor. 2:15).

    There are two ways to be fooled. One is to believe what isn't true; the other is to refuse to believe what is true (Proverbs 1:7; 10:8,21; 12:15; 13:20; 14:9; 16:22; 18:2; 20:3; 29:11; Luke 18:10-14; Cor. 1:20; 2:14; 15:36).

    We regret that you are not able to understand any of the above (1 Cor. 2:14; 2 Cor. 7:10). Notwithstanding: Seek and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

    Don't let your self-righteousness stand in the way of your salvation (Romans 10:2-4).

    so, this part is puzzling too me. Satan must be loosed for a season??? This is a warning? The angel or len loose him from this black hole or bottomless pit or men will loose him. But Christ has reigned for 2000 years on earth as he say behold the kingdom of heaven is here! Today. So I'm thinking that already Christ reign and the people who are filled with his spirit??? I'm curious the earth inhabitable for 1000 more years is 2020?
  • Earl Bowman - in Reply on Revelation 20:3
    Ricky, the whole 19th chapter of Revelation describes the marriage supper of the lamb, which all the children of the resurrection have their part therein (study it, it is not as simple as one thinks). When their (the children of the resurrection) physical bodies die they are birthed (delivered) into the presents of Christ. Revelation 20 describes the ones that were not raised in the first resurrection. Revelation 20:5 But the rest of the dead ( those that died in their trespasses lived not again until the thousand years (II Peter 3:9 ......a thousand years as one day, the day of the Lord) was finished. This is the first resurrection. Revelation 20:1 And I (John) saw an angel [(of the Lord, Jesus) come down from heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit (death and the grave: Revelation 1:18 I am he (Jesus) that liveth, and was dead; and behold I (Jesus) am alive for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of hell (grave) and of death (the wages or sin is death)] and a great chain in his (Jesus) hand. And he (Jesus) laid hold on that old serpent (those that died in their trespasses, the children of your father the devil),which is the devil, and Satan, and bound (in the grave) him ( those that died in their trespasses) a thousand year ( a thousand years as one day, the day of the Lord). (vs) 7 And when the thousand years (the day of the Lord) are expired, Satan (children of) shall be loosed out of prison (the grave). Revelation 20:4 And I (John) saw thrones (Revelation 3:21 To him (children of the resurrection) that overcometh will I (Jesus) grant to sit with me (Jesus) in my throne, even as I (Jesus) overcame, and am sit down with my Father in his throne..... and they (children of the resurrection) lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years (a thousand years as one day, day of the Lord).
  • Why is Satan being loosed after the 1000 years - in Reply on Revelation 20:3
    Revelation 20

    1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

    2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a THOUSAND years,

    3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations NO MORE, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a LITTLE SEASON.

    COMMENT by MISHAEL ON VERSE 3: the people to be tempted are the ones that received Salvation during the Great Tribulation. See Verse 7 also.

    4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: 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 worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

    5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection. Comment: the wicked dead.

    6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

    7 And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison,

    We should remember that the Bema Seat Judgement by Jesus, is ongoing during this time. Of the Believers/Christians

    For rewards or loss of rewards.

    Don't be led astray by false teachers or false doctrines. YOU have the responsibility to verify everything taught to you by scripture.

    To CARLETON

    The messages we post each are indeed according to the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him (John 14:17). Please note the word 'cannot'.

    We speak with a clear conscience towards God and toward men (Acts 24:16), and we say the truth in Christ, we lie not, our conscience also bearing us witness in the Holy Ghost (Romans 9:1).

    The time has come when it must be said: You are a follower of an image of a false god and a false Christ and if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Gal. 4:8; 2 Cor. 11:13-15; Rev. 12:9).

    The comments you post are misleading, empty and without basis or spiritual wisdom and knowledge. With great swelling words you speak of God's love, but we know you, that ye have not the love of God in you (John 5:42). When we say we know you, it means 'spiritually'. The believers judge after the spirit of man (John 8:15).

    The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is everyone that is born of the Spirit (John 3:8).

    Only through 'True Repentance' will God be able to reveal Himself, and adopt you as His sons and daughters (Rom. 8:15,23; 2 Cor.6:18; Gal. 4:5; Eph. 1:5; Hebr. 12:5; 1 John 3:1).

    The word 'Repent' means a lot more than what people by nature have been conditioned to believe. It is the key principle of all the teachings of Jesus Christ and the axiom (basis) of the Word of God and a prerequisite and primary requirement for the salvation of mankind. It actually means the changing of spirits - to turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God (Acts 26:18).

    You are of the world: therefore do you speak of the world and the world hears you (John 4:4).

    We are of God: he that knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby know we the spirit of truth and the spirit of error (1 John 4:6; Isaiah 8:20).

    10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

    Note:in verse 10 " ...the devil that deceived them...". The devil is the master of deception because it is 1 of the devil's very best old weapon-of-mass destruction; for example let us remember the devil used deception on Eve and she used it on Adam, and 2020 is no exception because this very old but same deception is being offered to kings /leaders, and us 24/7 in 2020, mater-of-fact see verse 7 & 8 above.

    Note: Being 'deceived by the devil' is.... but deception when being deceived by myself appears far worse, especially when one kick GOD's plan for SALVATION /John 3:16-21 to the curve because we are sooo in-love with man-made stuff & things or man, women, children; yes, all stand at the folk-in-the-road and will be faced with choosing delicious-deception or John 3:61-21.



    Note: 'THE BOOK OF LIFE' (see verse 15 above) has room for all our names to be enter in IT through John 3:16-21 and similar verses that guides us into SALVATION, thereby we avoid the lake of fire mention in verse 15 above.
  • Cynn Cincy on Revelation 20
    I'm a little confused, am I hearing from the attached Comments, and Interpretations of Scripture, people are insinuating "Jesus" is "GOD the Lord"...?

    Matthew, Mark, & John tells Us over & over again, who "GOD" is, and who we are suppose to be Serving(GOD), and not Serving(Man) ... Jesus was Born a Man, correct ???

    Revelation 21:4-7

    4 And "God" shall wipe away all teares from their eyes: and there shall bee no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there bee any more paine: for the former things are passed away.

    5 And he (GOD) that sate vpon the throne, said, Behold, I(GOD)make all things new. And hee (GOD) said vnto me (John), Write: for these words are true and faithfull.

    6 And he (GOD) said vnto mee (John), It is done: I (GOD)am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I (GOD) will giue vnto him (Chosen, Israel) that is athirst, of the fountaine of the water of life, freely....



    7 He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his "God", and he shall be my "Son".



    Luke 2:49 And he (Jesus) said vnto them (Parents), How is it that ye sought me(Jesus)? Wist yee not that I must bee about my fathers(GOD) businesse? Which Scripture tells us to serve "Jesus" instead.

    Please direct me to the correct verse that say's Praise Jesus for/to get to "GOD our Lord & Saver". (I am truly troubled by this ) .. Thx
  • Chris - in Reply on Revelation 20
    Probably you've heard that Jesus is God incarnate, i.e. God come in the flesh. We believe in the one God, the Creator of all things, the Holy One of Israel. Beside Him there is no other god. God in His Eternal Existence reveals Himself to man as the Word of God & the Spirit of God. And this God in His Fullness (i.e. His Deity) we read in 1 John 5:7: "For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one." John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."

    In Galatians 4:4, 5: "But when the fulness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons." So, God Himself by His Word came to His people. You remember how God had given his words to Israel by the mouth of the prophets?

    Those days have now finished for God did something new: (Hebrews 1:1-3), "God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; Who being the brightness of his glory, and the EXPRESS IMAGE OF HIS PERSON, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high".

    God, the Word, was made man & He would be called Immanuel (Isaiah 7:14) & "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Matthew 1:23). "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins." (Matthew 1:21).

    Not only did God appoint His Son (His Word in the Flesh) to bring His Message, but also to give His Life for our sins. As Thomas finally exclaimed, "My Lord and my God" & he wasn't rebuked by Jesus.
