Revelation chapter 12 includes a fascinating description of an event in the heavens. Is it real, or is it a metaphor for something? Is it a prophecy about the future, or is it a historical event?
Is women submitting themselves to their husbands a selling point for Christianity? Does Christianity need to be sold? How about the dominance of male authority? What if there are no men?
I Will Greatly Multiply Your Sorrow
How could the heavenly woman in Revelation chapter 12 be travailing in birth if Eve hadn't been cursed to suffer the pain of childbirth yet?
Help can be Active or Passive
If the woman was cursed to take a passive role then, logically, that was because she had formerly been the active leader. This explains the natural tendency that women have of wanting to organize and direct.
A Woman Clothed with the Sun
Help can be both giving or receiving direction. Somewhere along the line the idea of helping and the role of subservience have been placed in an unequal yoke.
We (that's me and the Holy spirit) only know what we've been told, but everything that we've been told has been given us for a reason. We may ask: what does a prophetic vision of a war in heaven have to do with events on the Earth?
Women are from Heaven
Among the wonderful heavenly beings created in the firmasphere on the 4th day that we're told of, angels, cherubim, seraphim, dragons and the living creatures, it would appear that there were also women.
Men are from Earth
God wants to show us his greatness because he cares about what we think. A man shows off to a woman because he wants her to love him. God wants us to love him. What's the point of any of this is there's no love?
Hell had previously been prepared for Satan and the rebellious angels who were cast out of heaven, but hell began at the fall of man. This means that it's impossible for Satan to have been in the garden of Eden to beguile Eve.
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.
