Revelations A Study. Section 9. Chapter 12:1 thru 12:17, War in heaven . In section 9 we start out withrepparttar 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, andrepparttar 144331 other is not yet come; and when he cometh, he must continue a short space. Rev 17:9 And here isrepparttar 144332 mind which hath wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains, on whichrepparttar 144333 woman sitteth. Rev. 17:8 The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out ofrepparttar 144334 bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell onrepparttar 144335 earth shall wonder, whose names were not written inrepparttar 144336 book of life fromrepparttar 144337 foundation ofrepparttar 144338 world, when they beholdrepparttar 144339 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 ofrepparttar 144340 Middle eastern region. Rememberrepparttar 144341 Book of Revelations is 99% concerning Israel. Forrepparttar 144342 time ofrepparttar 144343 gentiles has expired. The Great Red Dragon = Satan. Rev. 12:9,repparttar 144344 great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, calledrepparttar 144345 Devil, and Satan, The third part ofrepparttar 144346 stars of heaven = Deamons, a.k.a. fallen angels. The woman = Israel Her child = Recognition Jesus asrepparttar 144347 Christ. To devour her child = To destroyrepparttar 144348 Church. A man child = Jesus [Ref; Psa 2:7 I will declarerepparttar 144349 decree:repparttar 144350 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 theerepparttar 144351 heathen for thine inheritance, andrepparttar 144352 uttermost parts ofrepparttar 144353 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 ofrepparttar 144354 antichrist ruel,repparttar 144355 first 3.5 years. At this moment in timerepparttar 144356 antichrist has signed a peace treaty with Israel for 7 years. Wilderness = within countries. A place prepared of God = freedom to descover Jesus and hearrepparttar 144357 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 whenrepparttar 144358 sons of God came to present themselves beforerepparttar 144359 LORD, and Satan came also among them. Job 1:7 Andrepparttar 144360 LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answeredrepparttar 144361 LORD, and said, From going to and fro inrepparttar 144362 earth, and from walking up and down in it.] Michael and his angels = The wariers of God. Michael. If you would takerepparttar 144363 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]

Revelations a Study.Section 10. Chapter 13:1 thru 13:18, The beast The beast as described in scripture isrepparttar anti-christ, or as God calls himrepparttar 144330 Assyrian. Many believe this is Satan butrepparttar 144331 Scriptures state otherwise. Lets take these next few verses and break them down. Rev 13:1 And “I”=John, stood uponrepparttar 144332 “sand”=the edge of humanity, ofrepparttar 144333 sea=man, and saw a “beast”=anti-christ, rise up out ofrepparttar 144334 “sea”= man, having “seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns.”seven heads = 7 Mountains, ten horns = Ten kings, seven crowns =7 Kings., and upon his headsrepparttar 144335 name of blasphemy. Anamils attributes are always used in scripture to describerepparttar 144336 attributes of God and a man.The key words that we are looking for in prophecy are, “was like”,“were as” & “as the”, these words should indicate to you automatically that an animal is only a medium to describe something else. Rev 13:2 Andrepparttar 144337 beast which I saw was like unto a “leopard”=who has great vision, and his feet were asrepparttar 144338 feet of a “bear”great power,, and his mouth asrepparttar 144339 mouth of a “lion”=power to devour: andrepparttar 144340 “dragon”=Satan, gave “him”= anti-christ, “his power, and his seat, and great authority”= Satans powers are given torepparttar 144341 anti-christ.[Ref; Dan_7:6, Dan_7:7; Hos_13:7; Hab_1:8 Psa_22:21; Isa_5:29; Hos_11:10; Amo_3:12; 2Ti_4:17; 1Pe_5:8] Rev 13:3 And I saw “one of his heads” = Mountain{Kingdom} Eze 30:24 And I will strengthenrepparttar 144342 arms ofrepparttar 144343 king of Babylon, and put my sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh's arms, and he shall groan before him withrepparttar 144344 groanings of a deadly wounded man. as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and allrepparttar 144345 world wondered afterrepparttar 144346 beast., The beast will take by force 3 kingdoms andrepparttar 144347 other 4 will capitulate. [Ref; Rev_17:10, 2Th_2:9-12.] Rev 13:4 thru Rev 13:7 are best described by Daniel, this isrepparttar 144348 time of great confusion and deception. Please readrepparttar 144349 description by Daniel. Rev 13:4 And they worshippedrepparttar 144350 dragon which gave power untorepparttar 144351 beast: and they worshippedrepparttar 144352 beast, saying, Who is like untorepparttar 144353 beast? who is able to make war with him? Rev 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. Rev 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war withrepparttar 144354 saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. [Ref; Dan_7:21, Dan_7:25, Dan_8:24, Dan_8:25, Dan_11:36-39, Dan_12:1] We are going to get intorepparttar 144355 full meaning of Daniel concerning Revelations, in our next study. This verse is one that is used by many to show thatrepparttar 144356 Church will still be here duringrepparttar 144357 7 year Tribulation period. Rev 13:8 And all that dwell uponrepparttar 144358 earth shall worship him, whose names are not written inrepparttar 144359 book of life ofrepparttar 144360 Lamb slain fromrepparttar 144361 foundation ofrepparttar 144362 world. Rev 13:9 If any man have an ear, let him hear. Rev 13:10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth withrepparttar 144363 sword must be killed withrepparttar 144364 sword. Here isrepparttar 144365 patience andrepparttar 144366 faith ofrepparttar 144367 saints. [Ref; Isa_33:1, Isa_26:21] Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out ofrepparttar 144368 earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. [Dan_7:8, Dan_7:24, Dan_7:25; 2Th_2:4]
