Deducing the Timing of the War in Heaven

And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

(Revelation 12:17) KJV

We’re using deduction to reconcile the Bible with science. Actual science, not popular science (SciPop). We believe that a fact will be the same regardless of what you believe about the Bible, therefore anything which is only true in the SciPop paradigm isn’t a fact.

A lot of the time this means deducing how to reconcile the Bible with itself, since there are many things which outwardly may appear to be contradictory. They aren’t, but it takes some careful deduction to find out why.

So, was the war in heaven before the fall of man, or after it? It’s a really good question, and we would really like an answer. There is one, and it’s staring us in the face as usual. Let’s look at three parts of the curse God pronounced upon Eve and the Serpent in the garden of Eden:

  1. Labor pains,
  2. Enmity,
  3. Is Satan Limbless?

If we compare the Bible with itself and eliminate interpretations which cause conflict between passages, we’re left with a logical arrangement of events.
