Revelation 12 Summary Study

Welcome to – today we have taken a study in Revelation 12. This is a very edifying chapter as it would be in the Bible. Revelation chapter 12 is a chapter that skips from time period to time period. If you are not reading it with spiritual understanding, it is very easy for you to get lost.

Many things happen in this chapter that most people are simply not aware of. It is vital for all of us to gain a quality understanding on these things. We have the video below, but you can also read the scriptures in this brief study. God bless:

Scripture Reading for Revelation 12

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:

Check Genesis 37 verses 9 and 10 to get a better understanding of who this woman is. The woman is ultimately the Church. Nevertheless, Genesis 37 (v9-10) will give you a clear understanding of where the Church began and with whom.

2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.

4 And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

The Woman is Israel, the Church

The Woman is the nation of Israel, which is also the Church. She was prepared to deliver a baby man-child. A red dragon with 7 heads and 10 horns and 7 crowns upon his head appears before the woman.

The red dragon was prepared the devour her Child as soon as the Child was born. This is the same dragon that drew a third part of the stars or angels in heaven to the earth with him.

5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.

A Man Child to Be Ruler

The Woman gave birth to a Man-Child who was committed to being a ruler in Israel (Luke 1 v32-33). The Woman’s child was caught up to Heaven to God’s throne. This was CHRIST, some two thousand years ago, notwithstanding, the scripture takes a jump.

The scriptures jump more than two thousand years when it speaks of the woman fleeing into the wilderness. The wilderness is a place God has prepared for her to stay and feed for three and a half years (1,260 days).

We’re Reading Revelation 12

7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9 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.

Beginning at verse seven, we go back to before the creation began to take physical form. There was not a man created at this point, and there was a big war in heaven. Michael, the captain of the Lord’s host, and his angels fought against the dragon and his angels.

All the Names of the Dragon

The dragon did not win and was thrown out of heaven to the earth. Along with him came a third of all the host of angels in heaven. All of the dragon’s names are laid out before us (old serpent, devil, satan), and he is deceiving the entire world.

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Revelation 12

13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.

Once the dragon was cast out, he knew he only had a week to persecute and deceive the woman and that is what he is doing through the organization he works through. Again in verse 14, the woman was given wings of a great eagle to fly into the wilderness.

Rapture or Wilderness?

NOTEwilderness is brought up twice in this chapter and plenty of times throughout the Bible. Rapture is never brought up throughout the entire Bible. Do you want a rapture or do you want to learn about this wilderness prepared by God for the Woman (Church)?

15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

17 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.

The Testimony of Jesus CHRIST

The dragon pursued the woman into the wilderness but was unable to get her because God helped her, but the dragon wasn’t done! The dragon turned around to get the woman’s seed. The woman’s seed is those are Christians who keep the commandments of God and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

It’s clear the dragon makes war with these people. This could be you if you aren’t in the place of safety… the wilderness. This concludes our study of Revelation 12 today; God bless you in Jesus’ name. We pray it was an edifying study and that you share it with others and come study with us again.
