HEAVEN AND EARTH
Brothers, as you read this 12th chapter of the book of
Revelation, please note that it goes from heaven in the past, to heaven in the
future, and to earth in the past, and earth in the future. I will attempt here
with the help of the Holy Spirit to keep this in perspective as we go back in
fourth during this time frame.
Revelation 12:5 And she brought forth a man child, who
was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto
God, and to his throne.
Revelation 12:6 And the woman fled into the
wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her
there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
Brothers, Jesus sits on his throne today. In the days
ofthe great tribulation, God will hide many of His people for three and one
Revelation 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael
and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
Revelation 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their
place found any more in heaven.
Revelation 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out,
that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world:
he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
Michael and his angels fought against the devil and
one third of the angels who sided with him in the war in heaven, and was cast
out of heaven into the earth, and his place was not found any more in heaven.
Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in
heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and
the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which
accused them before our God day and night.
Satin accused the angels of heaven before God day and
night. Brothers, please note that some teach wrongly that the devil accuses us
the children of God before God day and night. This is not bible. The devil
accused the angels of heaven before God, and before he was cast out of heaven
with one third of the angels who had sided with him against God. Look back at
12:8 above and see that the devil and his angels were not found a place in
heaven any more.
Brothers, God knows and has said in His Holy Word many
times that the devil is a liar and that the truth is not in him. The devil can
not tell the truth, for God says that no truth is in him. God knows that he is
a liar, and from the time that satin was cast out of heaven until this day
satin has never been allowed to speak to God one word against God's angels nor
against us his children because God will never again listen to satin for he is
incapable of telling the truth, and God knows this.
Brothers, the devil would like for you to believe that
he accuses you and your failures and sin before Go., But he can not for he is
not allowed in heaven any more. God knows that satin is a liar. Reread this
chapter and ask the Holy Spirit to teach you the truth of God's Word. Please
note here that Jesus' revelation to John takes place both here on earth, and in
heaven both in the beginning and in the future. So each time that a thought is
finished the place and the time period changes. Again, ask that the Holy Spirit
teach you, and he will deliver all truth of God's Word to you.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of
the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives
unto the death.
Here it is us the born again children of God through
Jesus Christ our Lore and savior who has overcame the devil by the blood of the
Lamb, and by the word of our testimony, and we have no fear of death. Praise
Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye
that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the
devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he
hath but a short time.
Brothers, the heavens rejoice in this day because that
we are saved by the blood of the Lamb. 12:12 also tells us that the people of
the earth will know great woe's, for the devil is come down unto the earth. The
devil has great wrath and will come against the lost as he seeks to devour
them. If we the children of God are not walking with Christ and believing the
whole Word of God, then we leave our selves open to allow the accuser, satin,
to falsely accuse us to our selves, and gain a foot hold in our lives. It is up
to us to stay strong in the Word and when the accuser comes, rebuke him as
Jesus gave us authority to do so, and tell him that he is a liar and that he
has no part with you, because you are on the right side of the cleansing blood
of Jesus. When you sin, confess it immediately, and keep walking growing in maturity in the Word of God.
Revelation 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was
cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
Revelation 12:14 And to the woman were given two wings
of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where
she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the
Here in 12:13-14 we are taken back to the future when
God will protect the Jewish people on earth from satin's persecution. A remnant
of the Jewish people will be hidden away in a place of protection for a period
of three and one half years.
Revelation 12:15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth
water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of
Revelation 12:16 And the earth helped the woman, and
the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast
out of his mouth.
God will offer protection for those who have come to
believe upon Him during the tribulation period. But, there will be many who are
killed during this time who are not under His protection.
Revelation 12:17 And the dragon was wroth with the
woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the
commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
Brothers, please see here that those who keep the
commandments of God, the Jewish people who are still under the law of Moses,
and the new believers in Jesus Christ will endure the war that satin will bring
against them. They will have to stand firm upon the Holy Word of God and
profess their faith in God even unto the death for many.
My goal is always to explain the truth of God's word by
saying only what the Holy Spirit tells me to say. We as children of God in
Christ Jesus are to always be learning God's truth. We are not to stay as babes
needing the milk of His Holy Word, but rather to grow into a mature Christian
and able to receive the meat of His word. Brothers, please pray always to be
shown the truth by the Holy Spirit each time that you open your bible and
through out each and every day as you walk through this life.
God Bless you my brothers,
