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

  • Daniel
    Verse 17, Jesus indicates a remnant (remainder) woman (church) that is under attack by the dragon (satan) because the church remains faithful in keeping the ten commandments, including Sabbath commandment. And the church is concerned with prophecy (testimony of Jesus as told in Rev 19:10).
  • A disciple
    Things in the spiritual realm we have only a small glimpse into, but the images and teaching in this Prophecy give us much important knowledge. How Satan fell from heaven like lightning, and how he is still permitted to go about and deceive the Nations to bring all things to completion; we must leave in God's care. The Lord Jesus has given us authority in His Name over ALL the power of the enemy!
  • Dee
    satan and his angels were cast down, and no longer have the power that they possess as heavenly angels and now have to live on the earth with humans, who possesses all the power through the blood of the lamb, come to make war with the saints, to keep them from knowing they possess that power through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth, and away from following Christ. using humans....
  • SabbathkeeperandWife
    Pt 2- and IF you follow what this man does, you'll see that HE is the one who is calling those who keep God's commandments cowards, haters, fundamentalists and any thing else to cause dissention. He just met with Russian Orthodox, now they banned JWs and SDAs because he calls there evangelizing"terrorism". Then went to Poland and they implemented a Sunday law. Follow and see what he does. Peace

    anti-Christ is translated"instead of" or in His place. All this futurism fairy tale is designed to take your eyes of the guilty ones. A pagan-satan worshipping religion that's been around over 1000 yrs with it head man sitting on a throne calling himself God. They forgive sins in God's place too. Hint: they burned over 50 million protestants who said BIBLE ONLY at the stake. It is Rome...still
  • Karl
    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
