Exploring Revelation

“Revelation 12:1 Pt.1”
by Art Sadlier   
March 15th, 2009

We have here in Chapter 12, Satan's conflict with Christ and Israel. The book of Genesis speaks about origins and the book of Revelation speaks about consummation. In order to have a good understanding of Revelation we need to be able to track each subject of prophecy from the first reference to its consummation. This will take the confusion out of prophecy and bring it into a proper focus. This chapter does not involve a lot of the sequence of the book. It is rather an insert providing necessary information about the past, present and future events concerning Christ, Israel and Satan.

We cannot understand the entire book of Revelation without an understanding of chapter 12. The truth made known in this chapter reaches back to Abraham and on to the end of the tribulation period.

I believe that the killing of the two witnesses in chapter 11, marks the mid point of the tribulation period. As we come to the mid-tribulation point we see Israel coming into greater prominence. Many of the Old Testament prophecies concerning Israel are still unfulfilled. This special information helps us to unravel the mystery concerning Israel. Why they are in the land today and how they can be sustained against such overwhelming power and determination to destroy them. 

A proper understanding of Revelation 12 is a key to understanding whole book and the entire Bible, it presents the history and future of the nation of Israel.

Revelation 12 reveals the conflict of the ages, a conflict that involves Israel, Christ and Satan. This chapter presents to us the great conflict of the past as well as the great conflict of the future. Understand that the present church age is not included in Revelation 12. This chapter only deals with the nation of Israel.

Some Bible scholars have entitled Revelation 12 with one word, "War".  Because it involves war on earth, war in heaven, and war on earth again.

Another good outline is -"The conflict of the woman (Israel) with the dragon in the past;" - "The conflict of the woman with the dragon in the heavens;" - "The conflict of the woman with the dragon in the future."

We will spend much time in this chapter, we believe it will give you great insight into prophecy concerning the days in which we now live.
