Home Broken World and War in Heaven.

Though Satan was at the beginning Of time cast out of heaven, [Isaiah 14] yet he could still appear in Heaven as the accuser of the brethrenand very forward about his intentions to bring every human being into the grossest evil possible.

With Job, his wicked ploy [Job I:6-11] was to get him to "curse God to his face". The Devil does not hold back with anybody. The Lord warned Peter that Satan was going to work him over, but Jesus, our unfailing Shepherd was in the intercession fight and brought him through. Hence, Peter encourages us all

"The Devil is as a roaring lion ... seeking whom he may devour". Therefore, "Be sober, be vigilant". In everything, casting all your care upon Him, for he careth for you"! [I Peter 5:7-8.]

There is no ruse or devastation of the Devil that the Lord cannot bring you through, just like he did with Peter! Praise the Lord!

"Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence". [Psalm 91 :3.]

The great fowler of man's happiness and the great scandal of his work upon us all and the whole world will be FOWLED FOREVER! He is finally cast out of Heaven for good!

It is important to be clear, that we cannot cover our sin by good deeds. We will end up, under black judgment on that day, if there has not been true confession, repentance and transformation of life. These truths are urgent, because we are in the days that Jesus warned of...

"Because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold" [Matthew 24: 12.]

Of course what we are looking at in Revelation chapter 12, is future, and takes place after the church (every truly born again sinner) is caught up to Heaven. [Revelation 4:1]. So the reality is, that, Satan is still in busy enterprise accusing us before the throne, and full of Wiley notions to bring us down.

By this time (after the rapture of the Church) and up to the war in Heaven, all people upon the earth are under control of tyranny ...

- Peace is taken from the Earth.

- People killing each other

- Starvation across the whole Earth

- Many doubters, seeing the Word of God being fulfilled, finally believe, and are martyred for their faith

- Earthquakes, the moon turns to blood

- Men of the Earth hide and call on the rocks to hide them from the wrath of the Lamb and him that sits on the throne.

All this progression, of the post rapture tribulation, begins in Revelation chapter 6, with the "great tribulation" yet to come and the "war in Heaven" in chapter 12 when the Devil is cast out.

"Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time" [Revelation 12:12].

What a fright is coming upon the whole world, having to face the wrath of the Devil!

God has withdrawn his blessing of "let's make hay while the sun shines". There is not much left of earthly joy if the sun is darkened and the moon is turned to blood! On top of almost all earthly goodness gone, and having to cope with the wrath of the Devil; could anything be worse? Sadly the answer is .. Yes, because in the grisly end, the defiant godless earthly horde is cast into "the lake of fire"!

"But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers (Pharmakeus), and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death" [Revelation 21:8].

The Devil, now excommunicated from Heaven for good, knowing that his time is short, is filled with rage and begins in earnest to plot his ruthless oppression of the deceived human race. He has already established a false peace with Israel and they don't wake up to this false messiah, for three and a halfyears [Revelation 11:2]. And when they do, then things really get devilishly ugly!

Everyone on planet Earth must receive the mark of the beast to be able to buy or sell [Revelation 13:15-16]. Those that turn to Jesus in faith, suffer martyrdom [Revelation 20:4].

Meanwhile, during all this woe on Earth, all of the Church come before the Lord for rewards and judgment upon our living, and serving him [2 Corinthians 5:10].

Also taking place is the "marriage supper of the Iamb" [Revelation 19:7-9].

This "marriage supper" is the Great rejoicing, that saved sinners, have become a part of Christ and are called the "body of Christ" [1Corinthians 12:27].

"Wherefore, my brethren, ye also are become dead to the law by the body of Christ; that ye should be married to another, even to him who is raised from the dead, that we should bring forth fruit unto God" [Romans 7:4].

What a glorious celebration! Words can not describe this "so great salvation" [Hebrews 2:3].

Could it be, that when Paul was carried up into "the third Heaven, and heard speech which was not lawful to be uttered," that he heard an account of such a celebration of Glory? A celebration of praise to the Lord for such love and grace. And that also, the angels, are captured by such transforming glory worked upon sinners, and

"admire Christ in all them that believe" [2 Thessalonians 1:10-12].

"The earth is reeling to and fro like a drunkard" as the woes Of God's judgment continue and men "blaspheme the God of heaven because of their pains and their sores, and repented not of their deeds" [Revelation 16:11].

The frenzy of the Devil continues with the great gathering of world godless firepower, to come against Israel to the battle of Armageddon [Revelation 16:16]. Except the Lord had shortened this war mayhem, "no flesh would have been saved" [Matthew 24:22]. At this devastating point, as in Revelation chapter nineteen, the King of Kings and Lord of

Lords, our Lord Jesus Christ and his army of saints,(including us) vanquish the enemy horde of Satan.

Satan is cast into the bottomless pit for a thousand years [Rev. 20:1-3].

Even now is gathered those who occupy "the throne of iniquity" working by satanic power to bring about a Global domination of oppression and tyranny [Psalm 94:20-23].

Belonging to the saints is the "Blessed hope" of being "caught up" to glory, rejoicing in deliverance from the Devil's last throws of human deception!
