War in Heaven

Scripture:  Revelations 12 v 7 - 10:  "And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, 
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in Heaven.
9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
10  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night."

The great tragedy of this day and age is the desire of a few to destroy the whole world in nuclear holocaust or through biochemical warfare.  The citizens of the world have to trust their elected leaders to prevent annihilation. Anarchy and protests show that the trust has run out.

John the Apostle who received the revelations above and was seeing the original war that broke out before the foundation of the world.  It was the war in Heaven when the Archangel Lucifer was cast out of Heaven with his angels and was renamed Satan, meaning Accuser of the Brethren.

In Revelation 13 v 8b it speaks of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. Something terrible happened back there in the midst of pure innocence and peace.  The Devil started all this and Jesus will finish it.  The Bible says that Jesus Christ was the  ransom payment.  Someone was the victim of kidnapping that demanded the highest ransom ever conceived of.  Whoever has an ear to hear, let him hear.

Everything that happened during that war in heaven is manifested on this Earth over the past 6000 years. Every killing from Cain slaying Abel, to the massacres committed by Islamic terrorists; from murders to death by disease, accidents or disasters is a replay of all that happened before the world was formed.

The download speed is 1000 years equals one day. So these events took 6 days in heavenly time and 6000 years in Earth time. Seeing as we passed the 6000 year mark on 15th September 2015, since Jesus created everything, the end is definitely nigh.  

2 Peter 3 v 7 - 10: "But the heavens and the earth, which are now, by the same word are kept in store, reserved unto fire against the day of judgment and perdition of ungodly men.
 8  But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
 9  The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
 10  But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up."

In Romans it says the wages of sin is death, therefore death was a consequence of sin, which was originated in satan that old serpent. He is accused of deceiving the whole world. Conning every human who ever lived that God doesn't mind if you sin.

The war in Heaven expelled satan and he had to flee and set up his own kingdom. Earth became the new battlefield for his arrogant powerplay. He said I will exalt my throne above the stars of God. I will be like the Most High.

He still believes he is winning and keeps the pressure on us frail beings to destroy each other by bombs, swords, missiles, grenades, nuclear weapons et al. Our only hope is to align ourselves with Jesus Christ. Satan has done a great job confusing and deceiving the world that all the gods he made up are equal to or better than Jesus. Yet they are dumb idols.

If that fails he tries the ploy that there is no god  and atheists applaud him. He has his followers too satanists, warlocks, witches, occultists, freemasons, mormons, Jehovah's witnesses and all religions. Only Christianity is God's gift of salvation to mankind through His Son.  

A cult is any spiritual or religious group that denies that Jesus Christ is Lord over all creation.  Any so called Christian church that elevates another over the Lordship of Jesus, including Mary, or their own selves, is deceived and deluded by Satan. 

The final war will be between the forces of Antichrist and those who love Jesus. The eyes of brainwashed Israel will finally be opened to her true Messiah and she will flee into His waiting arms. The Bridegroom, Jesus, United with His Body in the Rapture, finally holding His beloved Bride. He will come to save her from Satan's forces on the plains of Megiddo - the Battle of Armageddon.  It was for her that He was ransomed.

The heavenly war that got Satan the great red dragon cast out of heaven 6 days ago in Heaven time will be re-enacted on Earth when he finally gets sent into the Lake of Fire for eternity.

So if you are one of those who agrees with the destruction of Israel and victory for the Palestinians, Hamas, Hezbollah and Iran please be very aware of the direction that is taking you. Those who side with Satan will join him in the Lake of Fire.

The terrorists who kill the innocent and blow themselves up are already in that hellfire in total panic because Satan lied about the 70 virgins and heavenly rewards. Its not too late to change your mind. Satan has started every war over land, religion, power, greed, lust etc.  All the people can do is hope to be spared the worst of it.

All nations are affected economically through trade agreements. The great red dragon is symbolised by China gobbling up whatever resources it can to bring many nations to their knees when that will secure China being able to impose atheist communism of the Antichrist on all nations. So your choices are: Sharia Law of Islam; Communism of China and North Korea; or salvation by Jesus Christ and eternity in Heaven.

One would think that's an easy choice. One would be wrong.

Prayer: Father God our eyes are upon You and Jesus to guide us through the warzones as the war begun by Satan in Heaven reaches its climax here on Earth. We are grateful for the supreme sacrifice of Jesus to take those who believe Him away from the worst of it. We follow Him to Heaven. In Jesus' name. Amen.
