Wesley's Notes for Revelation 12:13


12:13 And when the dragon saw - That be could no longer accuse the saints in heaven, he turned his wrath to do all possible mischief on earth. He persecuted the woman - The ancient persecutions of the church were mentioned, #Rev 1:9|, 2:10, 7:14; but this persecution came after her flight, verse 6, #Rev 12:6 just at the beginning of the| third woe. Accordingly, in the tenth and eleventh centuries, the church was furiously persecuted by several heathen powers. In Prussia, king Adelbert was killed in the year 997, king Brunus in 1008; and when king Stephen encouraged Christianity in Hungary, he met with violent opposition. After his death, the heathens in Hungary set themselves to root it out, and prevailed for several years. About the same time, the army of the emperor, Henry the Third, was totally overthrown by the Vandals. These, and all the accounts of those times, show with what fury the dragon then persecuted the woman.


People's Bible Notes for Revelation 12:13


Re 12:13 The dragon . . . persecuted the woman. In some other form, not as a Pagan power defying Christ, but perhaps garbed as an angel of light, he still persecuted the woman.

Discussion for Revelation 12:13

  • Faithfull for verse 13
    And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

    Satan seeing his days were numbered having been cast into the earth, persecuted the woman causing chaos in the tabernacle's of God bridging Union and church, and decreeing that a mark should be put upon all lawful people in this denouncing God all together. A nation without God is dead already. America still believes in God, and always will!
