12/21/19: Revelation 12:1-17; Psalm 140:10-13; Proverbs 30:17

As we move onward with our journey in Revelation the mysterious sights and symbolism viewed by John continue to appear.  And we are beginning to see insights into the overall theme of the Book — “remain faithful and we will win!”

Revelation 12Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. 10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:

“Now have come the salvation and the power
    and the kingdom of our God,
    and the authority of his Messiah.
For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
    who accuses them before our God day and night,
    has been hurled down.
11 They triumphed over him
    by the blood of the Lamb
    and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
    as to shrink from death.
