Revelations A Study. Section 9.
Chapter 12:1 thru 12:17, War in heaven . In section 9 we start out with the revived Israel. The Great Red Dragon; seven heads = 7 Mountains, ten horns = Ten kings, seven crowns =7 Kings.[Ref;; Rev 17:10 And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. Rev 17:9 And here is the mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on which the woman sitteth. Rev. 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.] The Book of Revelations literally explains itself. The words Horn and Crown always represent Kings. Now these kings are literal. The emphasis on these kings and or kingdoms are representative of the Middle eastern region. Remember the Book of Revelations is 99% concerning Israel. For the time of the gentiles has expired. The Great Red Dragon = Satan. Rev. 12:9, the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,
The third part of the stars of heaven = Deamons, a.k.a. fallen angels.
The woman = Israel
Her child = Recognition Jesus as the Christ.
To devour her child = To destroy the Church. A man child = Jesus [Ref; Psa 2:7 I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.
Psa 2:8 Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.
Psa 2:9 Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel, Rev_12:14, Dan_9:27] A thousand two hundred and threescore days = 1260 days or 3 years 5 Mounths 15 Days.(aprox) or 3.5 years. The time of the antichrist ruel, the first 3.5 years. At this moment in time the antichrist has signed a peace treaty with Israel for 7 years. Wilderness = within countries. A place prepared of God = freedom to descover Jesus and hear the Gospel preached. Rev 12:7 thru 12:9, describe Satans expulsion from The Heavanly realm for ever.
Proof that Satan at this time still had access to Heavan.[Ref; Job 1:6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them.
Job 1:7 And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.] Michael and his angels = The wariers of God. Michael. If you would take the time to read these next references you will see that there is a war going on around us each moment of each day. A battle that we cannot see but as Christians we can feel. [ Ref; Isa_55:4; Dan_10:13, Dan_10:21, Dan_12:1; Heb_2:10; Jud_1:9]
Rev. 12:10 thru 12:12, A blessing and a curse. Rev. 12:10 = God no longer will tolorate Satan in His presents. The accuser of our brethren = another attribute of Satan, who has been accusing us of wrong doing before God as He did with Jobe. Satan has and will continue to use your own words & actions against you.[ Ref; Mat 12:36 But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.]
Rev 12:11 thru 12;12, Over comers and a warning to the people still left upon the earth.
