Wesley's Notes for Revelation 12:7

12:7 And there was war in heaven - Here Satan makes his grand opposition to the kingdom of God; but an end is now put to his accusing the saints before God. The cause goes against him, verses 10, 11, #Rev 12:10|,11 and Michael executes the sentence. That Michael is a created angel, appears from his not daring, in disputing with Satan, #Jude 9|, to bring a railing accusation; but only saying, The Lord rebuke thee. And this modesty is implied in his very name; for Michael signifies, Who is like God? which implies also his deep reverence toward God, and distance from all self - exaltation. Satan would be like God: the very name of Michael asks, Who is like God? Not Satan; not the highest archangel. It is he likewise that is afterward employed to seize, bind, and imprison that proud spirit.

Bill's comment on 2014-03-03 09:07:21:

I was taught that after the war in heaven Lucifer Satan along with a host of angels perhaps 1 3rd was cast out of heaven and exiled to a place of utter desolation Is this accurate If so where does it fit into the story of creation and the Garden of Eden

 

TJ's comment on 2013-10-15 23:58:46:

If there was a war, how was this war fought, with what kind of weapons? How many angels died or what were the casualties? Normally, somebody has to die in a war and everything is settled afterwards, but in this particular war the losers are cast down to earth.
