Wesley's Notes for Revelation 12:8


12:8 And he prevailed not - The dragon himself is principally mentioned; but his angels, likewise, are to be understood. Neither was this place found any more in heaven - So till now he had a place in heaven. How deep a mystery is this! One may compare this with #Luke 10:18|; Eph 2:2; 4:8; 6:12.


Discussion for Revelation 12

    to Diriba, you're not alone in trying to understand Revelation, When JESUS spoke to his disciples, it was in parables. The imagery of these passages are, I believe, such a parable. The dragon, satan and his forces, manifested and opposing the LORD and his. The war in heaven mirrored on earth, the same war on earth an echo of that heavenly battle. Take strength in that, hope that helps? - karl

    What is the meaning of dragon?
  • Nell Lamb
    This chapter would cause a lot of people to repent and seek salvation if the could imagine the agony of being forever lost. Having God turn his face from us eternally makes everything else pale in comparison.

    fact that scripture tells us that Satan as antichrist comes to deceive the whole world which means there is a deception. Now an actor deceives people playing a role of another person but that's all in fun to entertain people. Now a man with battle gear on, or dragon spitting fire to kill, steal, destroy coming to kill all man of flesh doesn't need to deceive anyone.Men of war don't have to deceive
