in Revelation & here
here in Revelation chapter 12,
Metaphors etc this chapter is easy to
understand if you know about Jesus' birth and life with his
Disciples, followers. So read the New Testament Bible Matthew, Mark,
Luke, John for a start then into other books in the N/T
Revelation Chapter 12 Bible
A dramatic event happened while Jesus was with us on the earth, and
it appears there was trouble in Heaven.
The birth of Jesus Christ on the earth and Jesus suffering on the
cross, killed then resurrected by God was an event Satan God's enemy
was not to happen or stopped.
Chapter 12 is the inside story of Satan's attempt to kill Jesus and
when that failed then Satan is busy destroying Jesus Disciples then
and even now Satan and his helpers are trying to destroy Gods, Jesus
has what I class important information, because it shows, you, us,
others, how Satan, God's enemy uses other people. Satan, Lucifer,
Ancient Serpent used other people on the earth to try and destroy
Jesus. and today Satan, God's enemy is using Nations, People,
Governments, Dictators, Terrorists, Suicide Bombers, Religions,
Churches, Denominations even you or I could be used by Satan to
injure God, Jesus work. That Satan could be using you to injure
others or yourself to injure God's work warns us to be careful. and
I am on the right track when the thesis of Revelation is about God,
Jesus, Mankind, a New Heaven and Earth but all this happened because
finally, mankind destroys their own World, Earth and themselves and
all that is left is God's Kingdom. and that is what Revelation is
about. We have been saved from a doomed world and as I mentioned
before God, Jesus gives every person born the invite to come to
Jesus and escape the doomed world and secure your soul....look at
more information. Videos etc or text pages.
Please remember, The world history
just keeps on and on as it has in the past, now and in the future
till mankind destroy the world in that last period when grace
comes to an end and even then mankind does not see the inside story
as to why the world is falling apart . But we as Christians do know
because the living God has shown in his word which is the
Bible and Revelation and other parts of the Bible. The world does
not accept God, Jesus exists and God's enemy Satan who is busy using
people to bring misery on the earth as he tries to bring down
God and destroy God's plan for us. Satan is on the earth
(today locked into a pit till the era of Grace ends Chapter 20
Revelation, but his helpers, Nations, people, maybe you or me, I
could be used to injure God's work which is happening today, let
that not be you) and the
world does not see him. But as I have said time and time again when
people leave the world they realize they have made a mistake and God
does exist and his word is true. Extremely sad, but a reality.
mankind has been warned it in the Bible which is the greatest
selling book on the planet every year and even on the WEB, Internet
we see, hear and read the wonderful glorious Gospel about Jesus
Christ and his father God. Jesus invite to mankind to come to him
change your ways. If you like Repent. Repent is altering your
behavior and altering your behavior to doing what God, Jesus has
told you to do. You must repent, Sin is simple that you are doing
something unlawful, you are disobeying God.
God did say, do not kill. Does mankind obey God. No!
Simple! Simple! Simple!
Living water to satisfy your thirst
and you never thirst again. Jesus said to the Samaritan women, If
you ask for it I will give you the water and you will never thirst
again. This what I am about, so your invite is there from God,
Jesus, Holy Spirit, so come. You will never regret that decision.
Come! Come! Come!
What is stopping you, coming to
I know why
You do not believe .
Simple! Simple! Simple!
lets follow Revelation chapter 12
is a amazing picture of Mary, not Mary herself but a picture of the
amazing scene as a metaphor showing how wonderful this event is.
She was about to give
We know we are talking about
Mary and Joseph.
But Satan turns up at Mary's birth and we know it is Satan etc is
heads, horns diadems we talk in other chapters because we are
talking about Kings, Periods such as Roman era and Power .
Probably this is a picture of the World,
Kings, Nations and people, if you like Satan's people and even
though Kings, peoples do not know what this is about here is an
attempt to get rid of Jesus. The world did not want Jesus born
because Jesus is the appointed Christ to save people from their sins
and Satan certainly knew he needs to stop Jesus from being born, if
born needs to be killed removed Jesus elimination was critical to
destroy God's plan for us.
and note where Satan swept a third of the stars from heaven to
the earth. So we see here where Satan and his helpers were brought
down to the earth after Satan tried to take over from God. That
event where Satan tried to take over happened after the creation of
the earth and we see Satan, Adam, Eve. So Satan caused our original
parents to disobey God and that how sin came into the world and
today we see the mess the world is.
Satan tries to destroy Mary's child Jesus before the
child was born. We know this because Herod had every male child
under 2 killed in an attempt to kill Jesus. Matthew 2
As we know, Mary's child was born Jesus and the angels celebrated
the event and the Wise Men who came from the East. and the child was
to be a ruler.
The child was not destroyed because an angel told Joseph and Mary to
flee to Egypt immediately because Herod was going to try to kill the
child. Satan at work through Herod, and when things were safe then
they went back to an Israel town.
is an interesting inside story for a couple of reasons
1/ Satan and his helpers were tossed out of heaven as we discussed
2/ Even though Satan and helpers were tossed out of heaven Satan
still has access to God as we read in Job in the Old Testament.
but here at verses 7-12 we find Satan has been removed completely
from having any access to God. And this could be where Satan is put
into the pit for 1000 years that I have discussed elsewhere
Revelation Chapter 20.
3/ Jesus himself said, he saw Satan tossed down to the earth, so I
assume this event happened because Satan could no longer
accuse God's people because of the victory of Jesus over Satan.
Satan is in the pit, locked in till let out for a while Revelation
chapter 20. This victory happened when Jesus came into the world,
Jesus then died on the Cross of Calvary for our sins, yours and mine
and then God raised Jesus back to life and Jesus was taken back to
heaven with his father and Jesus is now reigning and the end comes
as Revelation tells us.
is clear as I said above.
Verse 14- 16
could be about the help for Mary when Herod tried to kill the child
and also how during his 3 years of ministry Pharisees and Sadducees
tried to kill Jesus but could not do it till Jesus' time. Jesus had
a job to do and when he did the work God wanted him to do so Judas
betrayed him and Jesus was arrested.
Satan here began to attack Jesus' Workers, Followers,
Disciples, Apostles and those who became Christian.
we see Satan using the Pharisees and Sadducees helpers to try
to destroy God, Jesus' work. Jesus work is to bring us to God.
today after 2000 years we still see Satan using mankind, people to
try to destroy God, Jesus work, plan but we see here in Revelation
victory is at hand because God knows the end at the beginning and
that is why we have Revelation.
Revelation has been written so we are motivated to endure the test,
trials and keep serving Jesus Christ.
Next time we
will look at Revelation Chapter 13 and it is an interesting chapter
to think about
