Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 12:2

12:2 And being with child she crieth, travailing in birth - The very pain, without any outward opposition, would constrain a woman in travail to cry out. These cries, throes, and pains to be delivered, were the painful longings, the sighs, and prayers of the saints for the coming of the kingdom of God. The woman groaned and travailed in spirit, that Christ might appear, as the Shepherd and King of all nations.

People's Bible Notes for Revelation 12:2

Re 12:2 She being with child cried. Again we must let the Scripture explain its own meaning. "As soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children" (Isa 66:8). The travail of Zion causeth an increase. See also Isa 54:1 49:20, where the same figure is used. The state of the woman therefore implies a Church in sorrow, a suffering Church, but out of whose suffering there cometh an increase of the saints. It is a period when the saints are multiplied in the midst of persecution.

    Rev12: 4 the powerful people who connive with the Antichrist they conspired to bring the wrong doctrine. Until the time of Martin Luther Christian where able to be out . 8 the dragon was defeated by michael and the Bible was available to everyone but the true doctrine is out. But in 1964 the church is once again back in the wilderness when the Catholic Church and so called Christian join again.

    Faith: I placed my faith in, job, car, chair, kinfolks, 401k, IRA, credit card, friends, twenty dollar bill, social services programs, and non of these can keep me out of hell. So, I placed my FAITH in GOD according to HIS word in John 3:16-21, because HE promised to SAVE me. Now saved, daily by and through the POWER of GOD I serve by being obedient to the words of GOD.

    Get ready to meet your Maker..He will come with a Loud Roar. His creations we lived with in our life will crumble before our eyes. There will be no where to hide. Everything we ever did will be shown in the end. Our Life on earth will show the evilness we did against our Father. NO WHERE TO HIDE!!! Never too late to turn to Him. Seek Him Now..For tomorrow may never come. He is knocking!!!
