Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Revelation 12:11


12:11 And they have overcome him - Carried the cause against him. By the blood of the Lamb - Which cleanses the soul from all sin, and so leaves no room for accusing. And by the word of their testimony - The word of God, which they believed and testified, even unto death. So, for instance, died Olam, king of Sweden, in the year 900, whom his own subjects would have compelled to idolatry; and, upon his refusal, slew as a sacrifice to the idol which he would not worship. So did multitudes of Bohemian Christians, in the year 916, when queen Drahomire raised a severe persecution, wherein many loved not their lives unto the death.

Re 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb. This shows how the victory indicated in Re 12:8 was won. It was won by the blood of Christ and the faithfulness of the saints. They loved not their lives even to the death. They were willing to give their lives for Christ.

    Never has there been so many facts that line up to Christ's return for His church. I believe that the Virgin is Israel and the manchild is the Holy Spirit that resides in each redeemed believer.
    The dragon represents the roman empire from which the whore of Babylon comes. She, the roman church has caused generations to drink of her poison and has led people to worship idols instead of God.

    23 sept Jupiter will pass through constellation of Virgo in retrograde. Virgo is the woman. And the crown jewels on her head are planets n alignment.

    Chris; This wonder is one of the many, many kinds of visions given by God to describe what's done in the spiritual realm; (in heaven); concerning God and men. The war in heaven has already been, and the devil and his angels ARE cast out. The woman who gave birth to the Anointed is not only Mary of Nazareth but spiritual. Mary wasn't given wings to fly into the wilderness. The flood is persecution.
  • Chris
    5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron

    This is Mary giving birth to Jesus.

    As for the war described, it has not occurred yet. Let's just hope your part of the right army when that day comes. The army headed up by the woman clothed with the sun.
