Now A GREAT SIGN, APPEARED IN Heaven: A WOMAN Clothed WITH The Sun, WITH The Moon UNDER Her (The Woman’s) FEET, and ON Her (The Woman’s) HEAD, A Garland of Twelve (12) Stars. Then, Being WITH Child, She (The Woman) Cried Out IN Labor and IN Pain to GIVE BIRTH.
And Another SIGN, APPEARED IN Heaven: Behold, a great, fiery red dragon, having seven (7) heads and ten (10) horns, and seven (7) diadems on his (the great fiery red dragon’s) heads. His (The great fiery red dragon’s) tail DREW a (1/3) third of The Stars of Heaven and THREW Them (1/3 of The Stars of Heaven) to The Earth.
And the dragon (the great fiery red dragon) stood before The WOMAN, who was READY TO GIVE BIRTH, TO DEVOUR Her (The Woman’s) CHILD, as soon as it (The Child) was BORN. She (The Woman) BORE A Male CHILD, Who was to RULE All Nations WITH A Rod of Iron. And Her (The Woman’s) CHILD was CAUGHT UP TO GOD (GOD Almighty) and His (The Male Child’s Throne) THRONE. Then, The WOMAN fled into The Wilderness, where She (The Woman) has a PLACE, PREPARED BY GOD (GOD Almighty), that They should FEED Her (The Woman) There (The Place Prepared by GOD Almighty), One Thousand Two Hundred and Sixty (1,260) Days.
And WAR BROKE OUT IN Heaven: Michael (GOD Almighty’s Holy Angel) AND His (GOD Almighty’s) Angels (GOD Almighty’s Holy Angels) FOUGHT WITH the dragon (Satan); and the dragon (Satan) and his (Satan’s) angels (fallen angels/demons) FOUGHT, BUT they (Satan and his fallen angels/demons) did NOT prevail, NOR was a place found for them (Satan and his fallen angels/demons) IN Heaven ANY LONGER. So, the great dragon (Satan) WAS CAST OUT, that serpent of old, called The Devil and Satan, who DECEIVES The Whole World; he (Satan) WAS CAST TO The Earth, AND his (Satan’s) angels (fallen angels/demons) WERE CAST OUT WITH him (Satan).
Then I (John) HEARD A Loud VOICE, SAYING IN Heaven, “Now SALVATION, and STRENGTH, and The KINGDOM of Our GOD (GOD Almighty), and The POWER of His (GOD Almighty’s) Christ (Jesus Christ) HAVE COME, for the accuser (Satan) of Our Brethren (Believers), who accused Them (Believers) BEFORE Our GOD (GOD Almighty) Day and Night, HAS BEEN CAST DOWN. And They (Believers) OVERCAME him (Satan), BY The BLOOD of The LAMB (Jesus Christ) and BY The WORD of Their (Believers) TESTIMONY, and They (Believers) did NOT Love Their (Believers) Lives TO THE DEATH. Therefore REJOICE, O Heavens, and YOU Who DWELL IN Them (The Heavens)! WOE TO The Inhabitants of The Earth and The Sea! For the devil (Satan) has COME DOWN TO YOU, having Great Wrath, BECAUSE he (Satan) KNOWS that he (Satan) has a SHORT TIME.”
Now, when the dragon (Satan) SAW that he (Satan) had BEEN CAST TO The Earth, he (Satan) PERSECUTED The WOMAN, Who GAVE BIRTH to The Male CHILD. BUT The WOMAN was GIVEN Two Wings of a Great Eagle, that She (The Woman) might FLY INTO The WILDERNESS TO Her (The Woman’s) Place (The Place Prepared by GOD Almighty), where She (The Woman) IS NOURISHED, FOR A TIME and TIMES and HALF A TIME, FROM the presence of the serpent (Satan). So, the serpent (Satan) SPEWED WATER OUT of his (the serpent’s/Satan’s) mouth, LIKE a flood AFTER The WOMAN, that he (the serpent/Satan) might CAUSE Her (The Woman) to be CARRIED AWAY by the flood. BUT The Earth HELPED The WOMAN, and The Earth OPENED ITS (The Earth’s) MOUTH and SWALLOWED UP the flood, which the dragon (Satan) had SPEWED OUT of his (Satan’s) mouth. And the dragon (Satan) was ENRAGED with The WOMAN, and he (Satan) went to MAKE WAR with The Rest of Her (The Woman’s) OFFSPRING (Believers), Who KEEP The COMMANDMENTS of GOD (GOD Almighty) and HAVE The TESTIMONY of Jesus Christ (The Gospel of Jesus Christ).
Now, The Sons of Jacob (Israel) were (12) Twelve: The Sons of Leah were Reuben, Jacob’s Firstborn, and Simeon, Levi, Judah, Issachar, and Zebulun; The Sons of Rachel were Joseph and Benjamin; The Sons of Bilhah, Rachel’s Maidservant, were Dan and Naphtali; and The Sons of Zilpah, Leah’s Maidservant, were Gad and Asher. THESE were The Sons of Jacob (Israel), who were BORN to Him (Jacob/Israel), IN Padan Aram. [Note: The 12 Sons of Jacob/Israel: Reuben, Simeon, Levi, Judah, Zebulun, Issachar, Dan, Gad, Asher, Naphtali, JOSEPH, and Benjamin.]
“Then He (Joseph) dreamed still Another DREAM and TOLD it (The Dream) to His (Joseph’s) Brothers, and said, “LOOK, I have dreamed Another DREAM. And THIS TIME, The Sun, The Moon, and The Eleven Stars BOWED DOWN to me (Joseph).” [Note: The Sun, Joseph’s Father, Jacob/Israel, The Moon, Joseph’s Mother, Rachel, and The Eleven Stars, Joseph’s Brothers.]
My Brethren (Believers), BE STRONG IN The LORD (GOD Almighty) and IN The POWER of His (GOD Almighty’s) MIGHT. PUT ON The Whole ARMOR of GOD (GOD Almighty), that YOU (Believers) May BE ABLE TO STAND AGAINST The Wiles of The Devil (Satan). For We (Believers) do NOT Wrestle AGAINST Flesh and Blood (Mankind), BUT AGAINST Principalities, AGAINST Powers, AGAINST The Rulers of The Darkness of THIS AGE, AGAINST Spiritual Hosts of Wickedness (fallen angels/demons) IN The Heavenly Places. Therefore, TAKE UP The Whole ARMOR of GOD (GOD Almighty), that YOU (Believers) may BE ABLE to WITHSTAND in The Evil Day, and having DONE ALL, TO STAND. STAND therefore, having GIRDED Your (Believers) Waist WITH TRUTH, having PUT ON The Breastplate of Righteousness, and having SHOD Your (Believers) Feet WITH The Preparation of The Gospel of Peace (The Gospel of Jesus Christ); ABOVE ALL, TAKING The Shield of Faith with which YOU (Believers) will BE ABLE to QUENCH All The Fiery Darts of The Wicked One (Satan). And TAKE The Helmet of Salvation, and The Sword of The Spirit (The Holy Spirit), which IS The WORD (The Holy Bible) of GOD (GOD Almighty); Praying Always with All Prayer and Supplication IN The Spirit, BEING WATCHFUL to THIS END with All Perseverance and Supplication for All The Saints (Believers).
Fellow Believers, as We (Believers) LOOK at These Scriptures (Revelation 12:1-17), let Us (Believers) LOOK At The Three Main Characters: The Woman, The Dragon, and The Male Child, and who They Represent. The Woman IS GOD Almighty’s People (Israel), The Male Child IS Jesus Christ, and The Dragon IS Satan.
Fellow Believers, just in case YOU (Believers) did NOT KNOW This, The Above Scriptures (Revelation 12:7-9) are NOT describing Satan’s Original Fall From Heaven, Surprise! These Scriptures (Revelation 12:7-9) are actually describing a Future Battle IN Heaven, Between Michael (GOD Almighty’s Holy Archangel) and GOD Almighty’s Holy Angels AGAINST Satan and his followers (fallen angels/demons), Surprise! This Future Battle OCCURS at The Midpoint of The Tribulation. Once Satan and his followers (fallen angels/demons) are CAST OUT of Heaven, i.e. They LOSE ACCESS TO GOD Almighty, it will make Satan just a little angry. Remember, even NOW, Satan has ACCESS TO GOD Almighty, whereby Satan (the accuser) ACCUSES Us (Believers) of Our (Believers) sins, BEFORE GOD Almighty. To NO avail, I might add. When Satan and his followers (fallen angels/demons) are CAST OUT of Heaven, THEN Satan concentrates all his anger ON Mankind, and yes, he (Satan) KNOWS his time IS SHORT.
Did YOU (Believers) happen to notice, that The Very Next Chapter of The Book of Revelation DESCRIBES The BEAST (The Antichrist) From The Sea AND The BEAST (The False Prophet) From The Earth? Is THIS simply a COINCIDENCE, NO! Satan will CONCENTRATE ALL of his animosity, his hatred toward GOD Almighty, his hatred toward GOD Almighty’s People, Israel, and his hatred toward The Rest of Mankind. Remember, Satan NO Longer has ACCESS TO GOD Almighty OR Heaven! Therefore, Satan will CONCENTRATE ALL of his efforts upon This World, Satan’s World. Just how will Satan do THIS, YOU (Believers) ask? Well, THROUGH The First BEAST (The Antichrist), The Second BEAST (The False Prophet), The IMAGE of The First BEAST (The Antichrist), The MARK of The BEAST (The Antichrist), and AT THE END, Satan will lead The Battle, PERSONALLY!
So, My Fellow Believers, SUIT UP, PUT ON The Whole ARMOR of GOD Almighty, THIS IS A Spiritual Battle AGAINST Satan and his followers (fallen angels/demons), BUT More Importantly, FOR The Souls of Yet-To-Be-Believers, Please, JOIN ME!
