Discussion for Revelation 12

  • BSP
    Verse 12~We are experiencing great woe because this verse has taken place. The Devil is angry because he knows that he has a short time and he is wreaking havoc on the earth.
  • BRENDA
    Satan and his fallen angels were cast out somewhere between 12 15 17 thru 1 13 18, according to the Heavenly Sigsn.
  • A disciple
    Alex; you are trying to mix two different aspects into one, that does not hold with the truth: the power of the Law, and man's commandment of God to do what is right in His sight! The commandments were given with the expectation of a good reward and favour for obedience; and damnation for disobedience. The power of the Law to give life comes through love in Spirit of Christ, which the Law teaches.
  • Alex
    The problem with the law was it cd not address or arrest mans evil Adamic nature,David comes to mind,the law cd not help David when he saw bathsheba bathin,the law became weak when he saw bathsheba bathin, y Paul is saying what the law cd not do in that it was WEAK THRU THE FLESH,God had to send his SON in the form of sinful flesh to condemn sin in the flesh,THUS TH NEED FOR A INCORRUPTIBLE SEED
  • A disciple
    "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." We live and are reconciled to God ALL BECAUSE OF JESUS! Jesus has broken the head of the dragon by Himself being wounded and bruised and blood being shed. Out of the abundance of our hearts our mouths speak and testify the works of Christ; and we live accordingly.
  • A disciple
    "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death." Jesus Christ the Only Begotten Son of God has come in the flesh and finished the work which the Father gave Him to do to redeem us to God and save us from our sins. This fact done being wrought in us by grace through faith is REAL or it isn't done at all! Faith ACTS!
