God Will Save Israel

Revelation 12:13-17

13Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child.

14But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.

15So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood.

16But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

As we resume our look at Revelation chapter 12,

we will see God protecting the nation of Israel.

The Jews are waiting for the coming of the Messiah.

Jews are obligated to yearn for his arrival.

Many traditional Jews recite a creed

that concludes with this statement: “I believe with perfect faith in the advent of the Messiah, and though he may tarry, I will await his arrival every day.”

Jews don’t believe that Messiah has already come.

His name is Jesus.

The nation of Israel gave birth to their long awaited Messiah,

but they failed to recognize Him.

John 1:10-11 says, “He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. [11] He came unto his own, and his own received him not.”

The Messiah died on the cross.

He arose from the dead on the third day

and later was caught up to heaven

where He awaits the hour when He will come back

to rule and reign upon the earth.

God has a plan for the ages.

That plan will be worked out in His way and in His time.

I hope the United States will continue to support Israel.

Any nation that turns its back on Israel will be headed for trouble.

Revelation Chapter 12 is a chapter of conflict.

In verses 1 through 6, we have seen the attacks by Satan

against the people of Israel and Heaven.

Verse 7 showed us more conflict.

There is a war in Heaven.

Before I go any further, we need to separate fact from fiction.

Many people believe the devil reigns in hell.

WRONG!

The Bible says that today Satan has limited access to Heaven.

Job 1:6-7 says, Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them. 7 And the LORD said to Satan, "From where do you come?" So Satan answered the LORD and said, "From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it."

Back in Verse 10 of this chapter, we are told:

Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.

So Satan comes to God every time we sin.

He accuses us of being unworthy to be called Christians.

Today Satan certainly prowls around the earth causing trouble.
