This is a study of Revelation 12, mainly verses 1 through 9… it is introductory in nature and you will have to pursue it on your own.
Friends, if you haven’t figured it out yet, we are in the midst of a great Cosmic Conflict. There is and has been an ongoing struggle between Israel, The Great Serpent, & The Child, who is Jesus.
There are some basic concepts & some questions that must be asked… also some comments that must be made, to further our study.
Such as…. in the Book of Revelation 12 verses 1 through 9… we find the rebellion in heaven where Satan drew 1/3 of the Angels or (Stars)… and both Satan and the one third of the Stars were cast down to earth…. The WOMAN of verse 1 is the nation Israel… the Red Dragon is of course Satan… and the child ‘to be born’ is Jesus.
So…Satan was present as the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, in the Garden of Eden and led to the fall of mankind… and has since been attacking everything and everyone that is Godly…
So we might ask ourselves why has this little strip of land known as Israel, in the Middle East… (home ‘again’ to the Jewish people), been persecuted from the beginning of time, up until even now?…. God has a covenant promise with Israel and her people…and of course God needs the nation of Israel to exist, to fulfill His promises…. if Satan could destroy the nation of Israel in the past, the present, or the future…. he could thwart God’s plan… and of course God will not allow this…. however the battle that took place in the heavenlies has been brought to Earth… our current Earth Age began in approximately 4003 B.C.
It also means that in the heavenlies the army of Satan is 1/3… that leaves two thirds that are on the right or good side…. so the bad guys are outnumbered two-to-one…( to use some nice easy to understand street lingo)
Christians know that they have the victory and it is evident in verse 5 of Revelation 12…And she (the woman) brought forth a man-child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up into God and to His throne.
So Satan’s attempts through ancient history both to destroy the Child and the Nation of Israel did not and have not succeeded…
So where does this lead us?…. it leads us to our current manifestation of Satan in the flesh of people, & the struggle that is going on in the world and in the United States for freedom, and a battle for the actual control of the United States…. this is mostly brought on because of our support of Israel… so don’t be surprised at the anti-semitism which is raging currently in the world… it’s all part of Prophecy…. also take a look at the “70th week of Daniel”…. the coming tribulation… and a forerunner…. to one of the four horses of the Apocalypse namely pestilence…. which I believe we are experiencing in the manifestation of the Coronavirus… continue the study on your own read the entire Book of Revelation 12…. it’s revelation will lead to wisdom and knowledge about upcoming events…. visit me at my blog…littleraventhepoet.blog… Sincerely, Frank Payton.
