Travailing in Birth

Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.

(Revelation 12:1-2) NKJV

If we (that’s me and the Holy spirit) compare the Bible with itself and eliminate interpretations which cause conflict between passages, we’re left with a logical sequence of events and facts.

We’ve already used this passage to establish the idea that women were created in heaven on the fourth day of creation. This heavenly woman was the progenitor of the woman God made for Adam on the sixth day. God used one of Adam’s chromosomes as a way to ensure biological compatibility between the two entities.

We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.

Matty’s Razor

Revelation chapter 12 goes on to describe for us a war in heaven. We have to resolve the timing of the war in heaven. We’re going to use deductive reasoning, so we can be sure that the conclusion is logically certain, but a lot of people are going to be unhappy with it.
