War in Heaven

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. 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.

(Revelation 12:7-9) KJV

The theological interpretations of this passage are wide ranging. We can’t get into an analytical breakdown of it because all it would do is confuse the issue. We take the position that the universe had to exist in order for this war to have taken place, so therefore it was AFTER the six days of creation.

The questions is, if it was after the week of creation ended, how does it fit with the fall of man in Genesis 3? Many, probably most people, believe that Satan rebelled in heaven, was cast out and fell to Earth, then either influenced or was the serpent which beguiled Eve in the Garden of Eden. We reject this interpretation.

We’re going to show how to deduce the timing of the war in heaven.

July 2nd – Travailing in Birth

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