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.

    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!!!
  • Artie vanlandingham
    Mankind had the resurrected body of Jesus in Genesis. Abraham's heart amazed all the angels, but Gods heart is greater and he substituted the fully grown lamb, a Ram. The woman is above all and above the church, because she is the reason for the church within us and Israel. The comforter carried the seed of God unto the earth, not Mary. The Holy Spirit is above all things with the father and son.
