vision: the battle rages/ Revelation 12
After receiving the message from KING JESUS on April 14, 2018, I then received a prayer vision.
I saw a dark, angry sky with smoky black clouds moving by very quickly, as if there was a wind blowing them. I then heard the words:
'the battle rages!'
I was told to keep looking into the sky. I kept staring but didn't see anything at first. Then, just as I was about to turn my eyes elsewhere, I saw someone standing to the left of my vision in the sky. As the clouds passed by, my focus got clearer and I saw what must have been a HUGE angel!!! It was a MIGHTY WARRIOR dressed for battle! Though I did not see his wings, I knew that HE was part of GOD's army! He was bigger than any giant you can imagine here on earth. He filled up a 1/4 of the sky! He held a sword in front of him, with the tip pointed downwards. The colors that I saw he was wearing was mainly gold with some black trimming.
I then saw birds flying into the black clouds. My first thought was that these must be crows. Lightening then flashed down to the earth and immediately I thought of the verse where satan was cast down to earth like lightning.
"He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven" Luke 19:17
Then the scene in the sky completely changed and I saw the constellations, but they were set up with figures of the woman from Revelation 12. As I gazed at the Revelation 12 sign in the sky, I heard:
'This was a sign of things to come. The sign still reigns in the heavens, though you cannot see it.' end of vision
I believe what this vision points to is the Great War in heaven that takes place where satan is then cast down to earth.
"Then there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and his angels. 8 And the dragon lost the battle, and he and his angels were forced out of heaven. 9 This great dragon—the ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world—was thrown down to the earth with all his angels. " Revelation 12:7-9
Two nights after the vision, I received this word while sleeping:
"the devil has now come; the devil is here"
This great war in heaven results in satan now reigning on earth and going after the saints of GOD, like it says in Revelation 12:
"Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus." Revelation 12:17
With all the major attacks on believers all over the world (I get emails all the time now of the terrible spiritual attacks), I truly believe that we could be witnessing this happening now. We are seeing evil increasing exponentially, as well as increased deceptions coming into the Church.
However, as believers in the LORD JESUS CHRIST, we have been given all power to triumph over this enemy!!!
" I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you." Luke 10:19
Revelation 12 has a perfect KEY TO THE KINGDOM for this battle:
"They triumphed over him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death." Revelation 12:11
We defeat satan by two things:
1) declaring our testimony, which is the gospel of JESUS CHRIST
2) applying the BLOOD of JESUS on ourselves and loved ones
So, as we continue to put on the full armor of GOD, let us fight the good fight of faith, knowing that our great foe is ultimately defeated. Though he rages, we know that our GOD is greater, more powerful and controls the very fabric of time!
