Revelation 6:14 — Heaven Departed as a Scroll

Share or Download Revelation 6:14

The day of the Lord will be a day unlike any other on earth. There will be a great earthquake, the sun and moon will be darkened, the stars will fall to earth and the heaven will depart as a scroll.

When the heaven departs as a scroll, it will create great fear among men (Luke 21:26) because the earth will no longer have the protective covering of the heaven (Isaiah 40:22) that separates us from being able to see God’s face and His throne (Revelation 6:16). Prior to this point in time that is yet to happen, the Bible gives us a handful of accounts of the heavens being opened, notably Ezekiel (Ezekiel 1:1), Stephen (Acts 7:56) and, of course, Jesus himself when he emerges from the water after being baptized by John (Mark 1:10).

Revelation 6:12-17

12 And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;
13 And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.
14 And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.
15 And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;
16 And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:
17 For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?
