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.

    And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
    16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

    Steve; The United States is definitely WITHOUT A DOUBT mentioned in the Scriptures! The Beast that first arose from out of the earth left an irreversible damage upon the psyche of mankind rendering the whole world heathen and in a defiant and disobedient rage against the heavens till Christ comes. The transgressors are coming quickly to the full, and the many have already turned away after Satan.

    The woman in verse 14 is of course Israel. In the final 3.5 years of the great tribulation, she (Israel) will take flight on the wings of a great eagle (possibly the USA will help) to flee from the serpent. America is not specifically mentioned in prophecy, but the eagle may represent America. Israel will actually flee to Jordan and Saudi Arabia who will sustain them. Hard to believe, but true.

    17 "And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ" ... This verse (17 above) is 'WOW' because 'most in the USA is not prepare for the 'to-kill-you- battles' the dragon is about to bring to our front door. Yes, many are already fighting, but the worse is yet to come in USA, WOW!

    Cheryl, while Satan was banished in the beginning for rebellion, once he tempted Adam and Eve to sin, he returned to Heaven's counsels as their accuser and Earth's representative. The casting out of vs. 9 means that after Jesus died on the Cross, Satan could no longer enter Heaven to accuse human beings to God. Instead, he turned his attention to persecuting God's people on Earth.
