REVELATION STUDY GUIDE
Revelation Ch. 12 Summary
The Revelation Personalities (Personages)”


In Chapter 12 it is very important to note that most of the verses are spoken of in signs and symbols. We must also take notice that these signs and symbols do in fact explain the Seven (7) Personalities.

The First (1st) Personality – ISRAEL




Verse 1-2:
1 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:
2 And she being with child cried , travailing in birth , and pained to be delivered .

The woman is the nation of Israel. It is NOT MARY. NOR IS IT THE CHURCH! It is factual – being that she (the woman) is clothed with the sun, moon, and a crown of twelve stars! The woman is not a literal woman, but a symbol. She is a sign in Heaven. It is Israel that gave birth to the child Jesus Christ. Also the “Twelve Stars,” is a symbol representing the twelve sons of Jacob,which became the Twelve Tribes of Israel! Also saints, Isaiah Chapters 9:6; and Micah 5:2-3; also verifies who the child was and whom he was given too!

(Isaiah 9:6)
6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

(Micah 5:2-3)
2 "But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times. " 3) Therefore Israel will be abandoned until the time when she who is in labor gives birth and the rest of his brothers return to join the Israelites.

Now saints, “TO US in verse 6 in Isaiah 9 is not talking about Mary, nor the Church. It makes complete UN-denying reference to the nation of ISRAEL. Praise God!

In addition, in verse 3 of Micah mentions that “until the time that She (Israel), which travaileth hath brought forth or gives birth, (given Christ), the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.” This means the God has temporarily rejected Israel for their disobedience until Israel gives birth (to  Christ) for the nations, and to the church and; his brethren return unto their land. (his brethren return unto their land - means that Israel will become a nation again which happened in the 1940's and the Jews will begin returning to Israel which is already happening.

The Second (2nd) Personality – SATAN




Verses 3-4:
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 Red Dragon is SATAN! This is verified in verse 9 below (9. And the great red dragon, was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him).

He (Satan) is the most dangerous being in all Gods creation. Who has no regard for human life or mankind! Seven heads in verse 3 means the perfection of wisdom that characterized the creation of Satan. Keep in mind saints that Satan was once Lucifer - “Son of the Morning Star.” He was the most beautiful of all God's Angelic creation. He was the Great Covered Cherubim (God's greatest and mightiest Angel in Heaven - the representative of all the other Angels). Ezekiel 28:12-13 speaks of the beauty of Satan prior to his fall from Gods grace.

(Ezekiel 28:12-13):
12 "Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: " 'You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. 13 You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared.

Satan was stunningly beautiful and amazingly brilliant.  He was the great and mighty Cherub who guarded Gods Holiness,  his body parts were made of Gold and he was arrayed with all types of Jewels.  He was magnificently  beautiful, brilliant, and Gods number one Angel.  To look at him was to look at perfection, and showed the mighty unlimited creation abilities of God. He was in the Garden of Eden way before the creation of Adam and Eve. 

The “Ten Horns” in verse 3, represents his coming authority over the nations (through the Anti-Christ), and the division of his Ten (10) Initial Kingdoms (which will become the revived Roman Empire - Through the European Union), which he temporarily rules over all the nations once again through the Anti-Christ.  Verse 4 saying "And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth" means that this is the number of Angels (1/3rd) of Gods total number of Angels that rebelled with Satan against God in the beginning and were also cast to the earth with Satan to roam the air tempting mankind.

Satan hates Israel, and tries to devour Christ (at his birth). This is verified in Genesis 3:15 – And I will put enmity between thee (Satan), and the woman (Israel), and between thy seed and her seed; and it shall bruise thy head, and thou shall bruise his heel.


The Third (3rd) Personality – JESUS CHRIST



Verses 5-6:
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.

In these verses, Israel brings forth Jesus Christ into the world. He is the destined King of Kings and Lord of Lords. And he shall rule the nations with a “Rod of Iron”!   Daniel 7:13-14 and Psalm 2:4 & 9, speaks of the rule and the strength of our Lord when he comes.. In addition, most all parts of the Bible speaks of Christ, his coming, his judgments, and his strength. There are not too many biblical chapters in either the Old Testament or New Testament writings that do not speak of Christ. When we really look at it – the entire Bible is the story of Jesus Christ in the forms of:

  1. To Come – Old Testament
  2. Came As The Lamb & Crucified – New Testament
  3. Return As Lord, Judge, and King of Kings – Revelation

(Daniel 7:13-14)
13. I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.
14. And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

(Psalms 2:4,9)
4. He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.
9. Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter's vessel.

Also, in verse 5 of Chapter 12 where it says - “and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.” In literally every ending passages of the Apostle's New Testament writings, and some of the old testament writings – many of them (especially in the New Testament) mention how Christ was caught up into the heavens and ascended to God ( Mark 16:19; Luke 24:51; and Acts 1:9-11). Here is one passage that speaks of our Lord being taken up.

(Acts 1:9-11)
9. And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.
10. And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel;
11. Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.

Also, in Daniel 7:13 - “and, behold, one like the son of man came with the clouds of Heaven, and he came to the Ancient of Days, and they brought him near before him.”

It mentions how Christ was taken to the “Ancient of Days (God),” and how he was crowned with glory and given dominion over all things. Saints, this is really glorious how God received our Lord, and honored his sacrifice in Heaven with everlasting power and glory. AMEN!

In verse 6 the woman fled into the wilderness – means that Israel (the Jews and the Jewish nation)will be scattered around the world for a time and a season. Now in the last days saints, Israel (and the Jews), will be brought back to their land. We have already began seeing the initial stages of this when Israel became an Independent State and/or Nation some 50-60 or so years ago. And defeated all of the combined nations of the Middle East in the great “6 Day War.” which took place in the 1940's.

In this war saints, God supernaturally helped Israel defeat all of the nations surrounding it in only (that's right) 6 days. Even now Jews are returning to Israel in droves around the world; wanting to be closer to their roots even with all the violence centered around Jerusalem and Israel. Even through the Jews will continue to go through great persecution, they will be protected during the last thousand two hundred and treescore days (3-1/2 yearsof the Tribulation period Zechariah 14:3-5 speaks of Christ's return to fight for Israel and to protect them from utter destruction by the nations and the Antichrist.

(Zechariah 14:3-5)
3. Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle.
4. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south.
5. And ye shall flee to the valley of the mountains; for the valley of the mountains shall reach unto Azal: yea, ye shall flee, like as ye fled from before the earthquake in the days of Uzziah king of Judah: and the Lord my God shall come, and all the saints with thee.

SAINTS THIS IS AWSOME! Check this out! At the end of Tribulation when Israel is about to be destroyed,  Christ will descend from heaven and land on the Mt. Of Olives and his great power and landing shall split the mountain into two halves (verse 4), opening up a passage way for the remaining Jews left alive in Israel to flee while he (Christ), single handedly  DEVOURS THE NATIONS and ending the Battle of Armageddon.

WOW! Can you imagine the power of this heavenly dissension? As Jesus Christs  feet lands on  Mt. Olive his great power and glory from his dissension will split the great mountain in half!   Now,  this is not the only way Christ will protect Israel during those last days. We will cover some of the other ways he will protect Israel in later chapters. I didn't want to tell you everything in one chapter. Lets save some for later. But I will tell you this clue, The verse above you just read in Zechariah 14:3-5 – Guess whatWe Christian's will be there with him witnessing everything personally from the “air!” I'll explain as I said later. WOW!


The Fourth (4th) Personality – MICHAEL THE MIGHTY ARCHANGEL



Verses 7-16:
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.
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.

OK – PASTOR'S, MINISTER'S, and SAINTS. I'm gonna have to get Holy deep” with you to explain verses 7 – 16, for it is dominated by symbols and parables. Now please follow me carefully so that you will understand and can explain to others!

At the last 3-1/2 years of the Tribulation period, Satan and his Angels shall go unto Heaven, and make one last attempt to take over Heaven (it verifies it in the ending verses), by starting a last Great War in Heaven (v7)! God then unleashes “the Great & Mighty Archangel Michael” (The General over Gods Massive Angelic Army), along with his Angelic Army (yes God has an Army.  A Great One!) Michael the Great Angel of God and his army shall defeat Satan and his evil angels. And shall “Cast them down into the earth (v 9,13). There shall be no more places found in Heaven for them (Satan and his evil angels).


***Very Important To Note (A “Flash Back” Into Scriptural Past):
In Chapter 2 of Revelation, I mentioned how “Hell” was not open for business yet, and that the teaching of him being in Hell is false teaching. Well these verses in Revelation 12:7-10 undoubtedly verifies that Satan nor his angels ARE NOT and have not been in “Hell” yet. Satan still has access to Heaven. He still Goes before the presence of God. Keep in mind saints – Hell was made for Satan and his fallen angelsNot for Gods children. We through our disobedience and rejection of Christ qualify us for Hell. But we continually run into scripture that consistently says that he (Satan), is not bound yet; and at all times till now – have been going about devouring the earth and standing before the Lord as the “accuser of the brethren!”

Today, Satan is still in control of Heaven #1, and Heaven #2 (Let me explain). See,  there are Three (3) Heavens – 1) The Sky - Heaven #1 ,  2) Space – Heaven #2,   and  3) Gods Domain – Heaven #3.

That is why he (Satan), can still constantly approach the end of Heaven #2 and keep up the verbal abuse of Gods people. He is the “Prince of This World (John 12:31).” That is why the bible says that - “we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, and other human beings; but against principalities, against powers, ad against rulers of this dark world – and spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12)

There are fallen angels everywhere and Satan holds the title and power over them as “prince of the powers of the air (Ephesians 2:2).” See verse 10 (listed below) where the Bible says “he stood before God and accused us day and night.” Again, back in chapter 2, there were several other biblical scriptures I referred for you which also verified that neither Satan nor his Angels are in Hell at this time (NOR ARE ANY DEAD PEOPLE IN HELL YET). The time has not come for all of this to happen just yet and wont be until at the end of the Tribulation period, and after the “Great White Throne Judgment!” As mentioned in chapter 2, the Antichristand the False Prophet will be the first to partake of the “Lake of Fire and Brimstone (Hell)!” Many preacher's are teaching their congregations that Hell is currently open, and the demons and Satan, are there, and as soon as the evil people die, they immediately go there - “bla, bla, bla, bla, bla” - SAINTS - THIS IS FALSE TEACHING and JUST IS NOT TRUE! AND IF YOU ARE TEACHING THAT - STOP TEACHING IT!



Verse 12 - Important Explanation:
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.

Note: 
Saints please pay attention to this. Its gonna be real good! Remember in Chapter 11, when I mentioned that the Antichrist during the first 3-1/2 years; will be doing great things in the earth, sincerely seeking the approval of the people, manipulatively forming his “one world” government, and solving world problems that will inspire all to come and trust in him?

Then all of a sudden, at the last 3-1/2 years ( the last half of the Tribulation period), something extremely dramatic happens. His entire personality and persona will totally change! He will become possessed of Satan, and turn to rage of complete destruction against the saints (the church), the nations not in compliance with his rule, and especially the nation of Israel. Now let me finally explain how this all happens!


How The Antichrist Becomes The Antichrist
(Extremely Important)

First I’m going to bring back up verses 7 – 12 of this chapter. For these are the verses that prove that all of this is in future pretense and not the past – or from a great spiritual incident that has already occurred. I will break down the proof with explanations in parenthesis behind the appropriate verses in red so it will be easy to understand and take in.




Verses 7-12:
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, (Satan attacks Heaven and causes a war in Heaven in the middle of Tribulation)
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. (v10 - below proves that Satan still has access to Heaven. Therefore Him being expelled completely is a future event.  At this point he (Satan) has no more access to Heaven.  In the beginning of the Bible Chapter in Job, it proves that Satan still goes to Heaven and has access to God and has to appear before God occasionally)  Read Job chapter 1 if you disagree!
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. (Satan looses his access to Heaven totally, and is locked down on the earth with all of the demons permanently and looses access to Heaven #2 3. They no longer can travel through the various Heavens. “cast out into the earth – means into the AIR. Remember Satan is the prince of this world and the air).
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. (An Angelic voice in Heaven further proves the to be a future event for the voice basically states that our Salvation is finalized - for Gods Kingdom is finally coming through the power of Christ and that along with Satan's  expulsion from Heaven, Satan is not allowed to accuse us before God and Christ anymore). AMEN!
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. (This is further proof of a future time period – for this is the martyred church and how the saints of Christ willingly gave their lives unto death to preserve their testimonies before mankind – or their witnessing to others during the Tribulation period).  Also additional proof that the CHURCH will be here during Tribulation!
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. (Now it tells Heaven to rejoice because of his expulsion but for all of mankind to be fearful in this future time period, for Satan is in the earth now permanently, and is very angry - and shall take his vengeance out on Gods children or mankind because he knows that Christ is coming soon to avenge God and the saints).

Okay, now that we have verified that all of this is of future pretense lets explain how the Antichrist becomes the Antichrist.

As mentioned earlier in the pretext the Antichrist shall be a normal man and a tremendously brilliant politician during the first part of the tribulation period; really doing great things in the earth; and really winning over the people of the world because of the wondrous achievements he will be able to achieve in a world suffering and in “dire strait and chaos!” The people of the various nations will be looking for hope and will find it in him, being that Christianity at that time will be outlawed.

When Satan looses his last attempt to take over Heaven through this last great angelic war and  is cast down into the earth in the second half of Tribulation; he then enters into and possesses the Antichrist which then transforms him into the AntichristThat is when his personality changes, he stands in the Temple and declares himself to be God, and then God reveals who he truly is to the world! 

At that time – the Antichrist sets out on a course of destruction upon the church, the world, and Israel unlike anything seen in the history of warfare. If Christ does not come when he does, the Bible says no flesh would have survived! Now – a question you may be asking. Does the Antichrist know that he is he Antichrist before he becomes possessed? The answer is YES! How is that possible? Here's how!

Satan cannot create anything, but he can possess. He therefore mimics what God has done in Revelation – but in a negative sense to achieve his purpose in the 7 year Tribulation period. Check this illustration out that will break it down for your understanding.

Gods Holy Trinity             Satan’s Unholy Trinity
                                                                                    God                                         Satan
                                                                                    Jesus Christ                             Antichrist
                                                                                    Holy Spirit                               False Prophet

You see Satan tries to set up a Unholy Trinity on earth, in the likeness of the one true Trinity of God (The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit). He does this on earth as a symbol of worship unto himself. For he empowers the Antichrist and the False Prophet as you will see in the next couple of chapters. Therefore his Unholy Son (the Antichrist), has already been pre-selected from birth just like Christ, and has been groomed though wealth and power for the purpose of the destruction of Israel, and Gods children, just like Christ was protected and groomed by God to be the Salvation of mankind and the eternal King of the Universe. So there is a paradox to his (Satan's) thinking. He truly wants to be like God over the earth.

Now Back to the Revelation Text

Verse 13 - 17
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.

In this verse Satan realizes that he Has been cast down for good and that his access to Heaven is gone. He in now sets a stage through the Antichrist, to persecute Israel who gave us the man child (Jesus Christ). Saints, once again - this not Mary. Remember the woman in this chapter is the nation of Israel. In addition, Satan cannot persecute Mary during the great Tribulation. She has been dead for well over 2,000 years now.

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.

This verse partially summarizes and explains the grace and love that God has shown in his protection of Israel in the past and present. In Exodus 19:4. God explains how he has always brought his people unto himself in their time of need! Israel has never achieved on her own accord or delivered herself from anything. But She has always been supernaturally protected and carried by God in love and in his grace he protects his chosen people. “Eagles Wings,” had become a symbol of remembrance of his people Israel in times past.

(Exodus 19:4)
4. Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.

In v14, “that she might fly into the wilderness,” means that once again Israel will be temporarily scattered into the wilderness (mountains). Christ himself speaks of this to his Disciples in Luke 21:20-21 where he foretells the destruction of Jerusalem.

(Luke 21:20-21)
20. And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh.
21. Then let them which are in Judaea flee to the mountains; and let them which are in the midst of it depart out; and let not them that are in the countries enter thereinto.

Verse 15-16:
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.

Iverses 15 – 16, keep in mind that we are dealing with symbols and parables in Revelation. Now, in these verses we are not talking about literal “water as a flood after a woman.” The word "water" represents many mighty armies that have come to utterly destroy Israel sent by Satan and the Antichrist, and to carry them away as a flood into persecution and death. Isaiah over 5,000 years ago prophesied this attack in Isaiah 8:7-9. The Book of Ezekiel also makes reference throughout it's entire course of the might attacks that shall be brought against Israel.

(Isaiah 8:7-9)
7. Now therefore, behold, the Lord bringeth up upon them the waters of the river, strong and many, even the king of Assyria, and all his glory: and he shall come up over all his channels, and go over all his banks:
8. And he shall pass through Judah; he shall overflow and go over, he shall reach even to the neck; and the stretching out of his wings shall fill the breadth of thy land, O Immanuel.
9. Associate yourselves, O ye people, and ye shall be broken in pieces; and give ear, all ye of far countries: gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces; gird yourselves, and ye shall be broken in pieces.

In verse 16, the earth helped the woman, meaning that God will use the elements of the earth to help Israel in this great time of need as he has in the past. As the King of the North comes in to utterly destroy Israel, God will use supernatural powers to help his people. See Ezekiel 38:22 which speaks of Gods supernatural protection during this time period to protect his people from utter destruction and invasion. God will rain down great hailstones of fire rocks upon the armies of the North to help Israel in this dire time of need.



(Ezekiel 38:22)
22. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.


The Fifth (5th) Personality – THE JEWISH REMNANT


Verse 17:
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.

In this verse Satan is extremely angry at the nation of Israel and Gods supernatural protection over them, so he turns his fierce anger to the remnant of her seed – which I believe is the 144,000 remnant from the Twelve (12) Tribes of Israel that were sealed in Revelation Chapter 7 verses 4 – 8. These are the protected saints who are Gods witnesses during this period who are witnessing to the Jews and the Jewish nation.

If it is not the Jewish remnant from the Twelve Tribes of Israel or the 144,000 then it must be the church and Christianity that has spread throughout the world from those who keep their testimonies of Christ and continue to preach and witness during the Tribulation period that he will come against. For the scriptures in Revelation does in fact say that he will come against the saints or the church.

Thanks for studying chapter 12 with me. It truly was a fantastic chapter to prepare for you. God bless. Get ready for Chapter 13.
AMEN!
