The Reason We are Now Living Here on Earth in Animal Bodies.

Caution to students of God;s Word - Please remember two things when using our American Wisdom Series studies:
#1. Our commentary is not God's Word. It is only our interpretation or understanding of "His Word" and even though we try our best to be accurate we may or may not be correct. #2. The King James translation, or any other translation, of the original Hebrew text has some words which were given different translations at different places probably because of the interpreters preconceived ideas of what they think God meant to say. For example: According to the notes in the "Dake's Annotated Reference Bible" the Hebrew word hayah in the KJV is Trans. (became) 67 times, (becamest or came to pass) 505 times, (become) 66 times, and (come to pass) 131 times, but for some reason in Genesis 1:2 it is translated (was)! That sure changes the way a person perceives the original creation of the earth, doesn't it?  Gen. 1:2 And the earth was (became) without form, ... Having said that, let us continue with our "studies". These studies contain knowledge, we believe, you must have to fully and accurately unlock and understand the Word of God. 
May the Holy Spirit be your only guiding light. Sincerely, John Rhine

Revelation 2:17  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

John 15:26
But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John 16:13-14
[13] Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. [14] He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

Without the leading by the Holy Spirit, there is no understanding of the truths, for all the truth of the Scriptures are revealed to us by God's Spirit.

 Now here is our study:

The Reason We are Now Living Here on Earth in Animal Bodies.

What a masterpiece the great Book of Revelation, the Book of the Uncovering, the Book of the Unveiling is.  

We will take this study from chapter 12, which John recorded after he was taken to heaven spiritually, by our Lord, and SAW in  PICTURE format the very plan of God, from the first earth age even to the third (last) earth age, all in this chapter.

Since our only purpose for this study is to discover exactly why we are currently living here on earth in animal bodies we will only follow the events up until this earth age and the casting to earth of Satan to dwell among us. You can read the rest of the chapter 12 on your own. You will find it in the table of contents to the left, on our web site homepage.
Live Link to- Revelation chapter 12

We will first see two contrasting "wonders" in heaven, one in verse 1 and the second in verse 3. We will document that the first four verses of this chapter pertain to the "world that then was" (2 Pet. 3), and not to this present earth age.

Let's begin. Remember, what you are about to read, John saw happening during the first earth age. 

Rev. 12:1
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:
Can you SEE the PICTURE. She is a very beautiful woman.

The word "wonder" means "sign" and so John saw a great sign in heaven, and wondrous it was. Would you like see one? Go outside on any clear night and look up at the stars, and wondrous it will be. And if you are familiar with the uncorrupted Zodiac the plan of God will appear, for it is the Bible in the stars. Did not God say in Genesis 1:14 that the lights in the firmament of the heaven are to be for SIGNS, and for seasons, and for days, and years? Yes He did. And He numbered and named them ALL.

And so we begin with "The prophecy of the promised seed", Virgo, the virgin, who brings forth the man child and travel through the redeemer's conflict, etc., to Leo and destruction of the old serpent. It was declared in the "beginning of time" and repeated in Matthew 1:23 "Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us." (You must read appendix 12 in the Companion Bible and/or obtain the book "The Glory of the Stars" by E. Raymond Capt.)

Of course, just as the written Word of God has been corrupted, by the traditions of men and made of none effect, (and still is being corrupted in the latest versions, both in print and by electronic media) so has the Zodiac, the Word of God written in the stars, been corrupted by men and reduced to superstition and daily fortune telling by the silly and the ignorant, and also made of none effect.

So what about this woman in verse one who is clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and a crown of twelve stars? She symbolizes mother Israel and her 12 Royal sons, stars, chosen before the foundation of this earth age, through whom would come Messiah. Do you remember the dream that one of those stars had in this earth age while in the flesh? His name was Joseph, son of Jacob, whose name was changed to Israel.

Genesis 37:9
And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me.
Eleven "stars", sons, made obeisance to the twelfth, Joseph.  Of course you know the story of how this twelfth star Joseph's two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim eventually became the United States of America and Great Britain, the superpowers of the current world. See Live Link to- "Do you know who you really are?"
Are you a Israelite? Be thoughtful before you answer. (Maybe you only think you're a Gentile!)

This "wonder" is a great sign in the heavens. The "woman" here is not the church, for a church building has never delivered any child. This "mother" has nothing to do with the church. This woman is "Israel", the twelve sons of Jacob, or tribes [John 16:21].

The same political and social order that was in existence at the end of the first earth age, prior to this age of flesh man, will be ruling over the earth at the end of our current earth age. Fix in your mind that the time period that is being spoken of here is that time when the souls of men were not yet in the flesh, it was in that first earth age before the events following Genesis 1:2.

Rev. 12:2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
Notice that the woman hasn't given birth yet to the Messiah and in fact would not until this earth age for which she is travailing, i.e. sorrowing. The time just before the "birth of a new age" is always liken to the labor pangs, the travailing of a woman. As Christ would say regarding the signs just before the end of this age, "these are the beginnings of sorrows" (look up "sorrows", it means "travail", labor pangs) Mark 13:8. Also see Romans 8:22 and 1 Thes. 5:3.

This "child" to be delivered is the Messiah, and the woman delivering the child is the symbol of "Israel", however, in the physical sense of this earth age, we call her "Mary". It is Satan's sole purpose to destroy this child. This woman is the wife and the son of Almighty God, and God wants us to feel and understand the events occurring then. What happens to them affects Him, exactly as it would you or I in a similar case.

Now back to John, what happened to John? Oh there he is still observing what was happening in heaven during the first earth age and the purpose of our being here in our animal bodies..

John now SEES the second wonder, the bad guy, the one who rebelled and fell in the "world that then was".

                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.

Can you SEE the PICTURE? He is a very ugly beast, in contrast to the very beautiful woman!

The dragon is Satan (see verse 9) and he has his seven heads, symbolic of his 7,000 royal priests with the breastplates on (Remember?  They get zapped at the return of Christ in Rev. 11:13), and ten horns, symbolic of power. We'll find in verse 9 that his angels get booted out of heaven and come with the dragon, Satan, to this earth. When? At the second Woe Trump, remember? So we see Satan's power structure in the "world that then was" which caused the "fall" of 1/3 of the "stars", us, which we'll see in verse 4.

And when we get to the next chapter, chapter 13, we'll see this creep, Satan the beast, with almost exactly the same power structure he had in first earth age of which we just read. The difference is he has handed out three promotions and elevated them to royal, priestly status, i.e. he has three more crowns.

Rev. 13:1
And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
Live Link to- Revelation 13
Again, we'll cover this in more detail when we get to it, but you already know that waters and the sea are the peoples of the world (Rev. 17:15). And when you wear the title (name) of Priest of Christ on your forehead, and you're one of Satan's own, it sure is blasphemous, wouldn't you say?

One last thought on Rev. 12:3. He is called the "Red" dragon. Look up "red" in Strong's Concordance and your see that it is "purrhos" from "pur" meaning "fire" or "literal or figurative, specially lightning". And so Jesus Christ would say regarding this fire breathing dragon in Luke 10:18 "And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven."

This wonder, the "Great red dragon", is always Satan. Here again, it is all happening in heaven, prior to Genesis 1:2, in the first earth age. 

All these events will be just like it will be at the end of this earth age. 

Satan had seven dominions then, with ten agencies of power and that had their authority. Satan had complete universal control over that prior earth kingdom; and he had total political control. This we will see in Revelation 13, is a copy of this earth age, and the United Nations, with it's ten units of power, taking control over all it's dominions. Though the forms of government and their systems appear at first to be the same, we will see the differences between these two ages: That of the first, and this flesh age we are now in.

Do you know what Satan did in the first earth age? It is revealed to us in the very next verse. It is the reason that you and I are here on this earth, in these flesh (animal) bodies, today!

Rev. 12:4 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 "stars" of heaven are the "sons of God". Yes, that's us. (All of us human beings while still in our  spiritual bodies during that first earth age)  This "old dragon" caused one third of us, 1/3 of all of God's creation to follow him. That would be one third of us while still in our "soul bodies". We are also called "angelic souls". No, we did not and do not have wings, only the cherubs do.
Satan drew 1/3 of us into his camp of deception and caused our downfall, "brought us down" as we say, cast us to the earth! Got it? There's now big trouble in God's family! One third of all of us, His children have forsaken Him.

What it is saying here, is through Satan's fall in the first earth age, he drew one third of us, God's children to him. He caused us to fall also, because we worshipped him, and believed in him to be our God. That is also his desire for this earth age; to cause you and me, the children of God, to worship him.

Our Father then held the first judgment of one of His sons, Lucifer/Satan. And He sentenced him to "perish", to die the 2nd Death in the lake of fire. So you can see there was a price to pay for sin even in the "world that then was". That price was death! (The death of your soul!)

Satan's sentence is so recorded in Ezekiel 28:
Ezekiel 28:18-19
Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.
[19] All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.
"And never shalt thou be any more" is exactly what "perish" means! Satan is even called the son of perdition, the son who will perish. He's as good as dead which is why he is also called "death", to whom some of us will be delivered up to.

Now back to what this all means to our future existence.

Our loving Father did not at that time, judge the rest of that 1/3 of us who followed Satan, because the penalty for those found guilty would be death also! Sentencing one of your children to die is one thing, but sentencing 4 and 1/2  billion of your children to die, is another thing! Not something anyone would want to do. So He postponed our judgment until after the Millennium, after His plan to salvage us,  His plan of salvation, is fulfilled.

He would make man, us, His sons, to dwell in flesh (animal) bodies fashioned after the very likeness of ourselves, and yet be born innocent, which is WITHOUT knowledge of the world that then was, the first earth age. That way we could be free from interference to chose whether to love God or once again follow Satan's tail.
But the penalty for sin will still be death and so our Father, in His infinite love for us, His children, decided to pay the price Himself, to DIE FOR US, in our stead, that we might be redeemed to Him and love Him as He so wants us, His children, to do.  Is that not the most awesome thing you've ever heard?

Those of you who have children know full well that you cannot order or command or decree by law that your children love you. It must come from their hearts. And so it is with our Father and we, His children. The price has now been paid. We can live eternally with Him, if we'll turn to Him and love Him, for He first loved us and He still does.

SO YOU SEE THAT IS WHY WE ARE LIVING RIGHT NOW IN AMIMAL BODIES. IT IS GOD'S PLAN TO SALVAGE AS MANY OF US WHO CHOOSE TO ACCEPT HIS FREE GIFT OF SALVATION, TO SPEND ETERNITY WITH HIM, LOVING HIM AS HE LOVES US!

What say ye?

    John's note: LET'S STOP AND THINK FOR A FEW MOMENTS ABOUT WHAT ALL THIS MEANS. If there are currently more than 7 billion people living on earth and the experts tell us that half of the people who were ever born are alive and living here right now. (I don't know if that is true or not, but that's allot of people. 14 billion people!) If it is true that means 1/3 of 14 billion people followed Satan in the first earth age. That would mean over 4 1/2 billion people followed Satan. Is it any wonder God did not want to sentence all those His children/us to die, the second death, along with Satan, i.e. the death of our soul, to be no more.

Why do you think so many more than 1/3 of us aren't interested in God in this 21st. century?

I've been a printer all my life so while I'm speculating; Think about this. It wasn't until 1454 A.D. that Johanes Gutenberg, in Germany invented movable printing type. Until that invention the printing of the Bible was not impossible but since each page, up until that time had to be carved from a block of wood it wasn't practical to try to do. Can you imagine the frustration if when you were carving the last letter of the last word on a page, you sneezed and the whole carved page, weeks worth of work, was wasted. Or when you put that block of wood into your printing press and started printing, you had a paper jam up and smashed the block of wood making it's print illegible, and it had to again be carved. But with individual re-usable metal letters, all of a sudden the printing of a Bible was possible and practical and by 1456 Bibles were being printed.  God certainly knew that and maybe He had something to do with the invention, and the timing of Gutenberg's invention. (It did happen in Germany, a Christian nation founded by descendants of one of the Israelite tribes who migrated west after the Assyrian invasion of the ancient "House of Israel") Also, is it only coincidence that the Bible was first translated to English by the King of another of the tribes of ancient Israelites, King James of England (the 1611 King James Version of our Bible)? 

My point is God knew all this and it is only speculation on my part but, do you think God would have placed many of his unfaithful first earth age children in earth women's womb, to be born into this earth age in the years prior to the printing of His Word, when their conversion to Christianity would have been much less likely if their only knowledge of it came from hand copied scrolls, and than not very likely that the common man would have access to them. I don't believe he would have or did. That means that a very large (out of proportion) percentage of our current world population are people who were followers of Satan in the first earth age. (20th and 21st century population for it wasn't until the 20th century that Bibles were mass produced and available to the common man.) 

And even then Satan has been at work within our so-called Christian church (as he is to this day) to prevent the masses from reading the newly translated Bible.

 No wonder the world, especially we Americas have been turning our backs on our Christian heritage in the last 1/2 century. I can name dozens of ways! So can you if you think about it for a minute! And no wonder the city "Mystery Babylon" is now being built. Live Link to->> Mystery Babylon  And no wonder Jesus told us, through the prophet Amos in  Amos 8:11 Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:  Those days of famine are here and only going to get worst in the near future! There are more people living in today's world who followed Satan in the first earth age, and still do, (many of them KENITES) than there are people following Christ.

Live Link to->> The famine is coming 

Since there are most likely more people living on earth today, in this 21st century, who followed Satan in the first earth age than the number of those of us who remained true to our Lord, the odds that you may be one of those 4 1/2 billion people who were followers of Satan in the first earth age are high.  Therefore; I recommend that you get a hold of your Bible and learn to tell the difference between what is Holy (Christ) and what is profane (Satan) before Satan shows up here on earth claiming he is God. You don't have allot of time to waste unless it doesn't matter to you, if Christ returns only to find you worshiping Satan, again!

Make sure the version you use is a version of which the translation from original manuscript
to final version you are using has been protected by The Massorah.
See appendix 30 below of the Companion Bible.

This Is Appendix 30 From The Companion Bible.
All the oldest and best manuscripts of the Hebrew Bible contain
on every page, beside the Text (which is arranged in two or more
columns), a varying number of lines of smaller writing, distributed
between the upper and lower margins. This smaller writing is called
the Massorah Magna or Great Massorah, while that in the side
margins and between the columns is called the Massorah Parva or
Small Massorah.
The illustration given below is a reduced facsimile of a Hebrew
Manuscript (16.25 x 12.375), written in a German hand, about the
year A.D. 1120.

file:///C:/Users/Dell/Documents/AWSfiles/massorahsample.bmp

file:///C:/Users/Dell/Documents/AWSfiles/massorahsample.bmp

The small writing in the margins in this particular Manuscript is
seen to occupy seven lines in the lower margin, and four lines in the
upper; while in the outer margins and between the three columns is
the Massorah Para.
The word Massorah is from the root masar, to devliver something
into the hand of another, so as to commit it to his trust. Hence the
name is given to the small writing referred to, because it contains
information necessary to those into whose trust the Sacred Text was
committed, so that they might transcribe it, and hand it down
correctly.
The Text itself had been fixed before the Massorites were put in
charge of it. This had been the work of the Sopherim (from saphar,
to count, or number). Their work, under Ezra and Nehemiah, was to
set the Text in order after the return from Babylon; and we read of it
in Nehemiah 8:8 1 (compare Ezra 7:6,11). The men of "the Great
Synagogue" completed the work. This work lasted about 110 years,
from Nehemiah to Simon the first, 410-300 B.C.
The Sopherim were the authorised revisers of the Sacred Text;
and, their work being completed, the Massorites were the authorised
custodians of it. Their work was to preserve it. The Massorah is
called "A Fence to the Scriptures," because it locked all words and
letters in their places. It does not contain notes or comments as such,
but facts and phenomena. It records the number of times the several
letters occur in the various books of the Bible; the number of words,
and the middle word; the number of verses, and the middle verse;
the number of expressions and combinations of words, etc. All this,
not from a perverted ingenuity, but for the set purpose of
safeguarding the Sacred Text, and preventing the loss or
misplacement of a single letter or word.
This Massorah is not contained in the margins of any one
Manuscript. No Manuscript contains the whole, or even the same
part. It is spread over many Manuscripts, and Dr. C.D. Ginsburg has
been the first and only scholar who has set himself to collect and
collate the whole, copying it from every available Manuscript in the
libraries of many countries. He has published it in three large folio
volumes, and only a small number of copies has been printed. These
are obtainable only by the original subscribers
When the Hebrew Text was printed, only the large type in the
columns was regarded, and small type of the Massorah was left,
unheeded, in the Manuscripts from which the Text was taken.
When translators came to the printed Hebrew Text, they were
necessarily destitute of the information contained in the Massorah;
so that the Revisers as well as the Translators of the Authorised
Version carried out their work without any idea of the treasures
contained in the Massorah; and therefore, without giving a hint of it
to their readers
This is the first time an edition of the Authorised Version has been
given containing any of these treasures of the Massorah, that affect
so seriouly the understanding of the Text. A vast number of the
Massoretic notes concern only the orthography, and matters that
pertain to the Concordance. But many of those which affect the
sense, or throw any additional light on the Sacred Text, are noted in
the margin of The Companion Bible.
Some of the important lists of words which are contained in the
Massorah are also given, videlicet, those that have the
"extraordinary points" (Appendix 31); the "eighteen emendations"
of the Sopherim (see Appendix 33); the 134 passages where they
substituted Adonai for Jehovah (see Appendix 32); and the Various
Readings called Severin (see Appendix 34). These are given in
separate Appendixes; but other words of any importance are
preserved in our marginal notes.
Readers of The Companion Bible are put in possession of
information denied to former generations of translators,
commentators, critics, and general Bible students.
For futher information on the Massorah see Dr. Ginsburg's
Introduction to the Hebrew Bible, of which only a limited edition
was printed; also a small pamphlet on The Massorah published by
King's Printers.
NOTE
1 The Talmud explains that "the book" meant the original text;
"distinctly" means explaining it by giving the Chaldee paraphrase;
"gave the sense" means the division of words, etc. according to the
sense; and "caused them to understand the reading" means to give
the traditional pronuciation of the words (which were then without
vowel points).

We've seen the two great signs in heaven. One was a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. The sun "solar" represents the "sun of righteousness", Jesus Christ, and the moon "lunar, having no light of it's own" represents the "lunatic", Satan. So you could say that the woman, mother Israel, was clothed or covered, even protected by the LORD, wrapped in His arms. And of course the moon is under her feet where the footstool belongs.

Then we saw a great red dragon with seven crowned heads and ten horns. This is Satan and his power structure in the "world that then was" (2 Pet. 3:6), before this flesh age, where his tail drew, i.e. dragged down, a third of us, to rebel against our Father and follow after him.

And we saw the dragon, Satan, standing before the woman, which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was to be born. It was to be born at the appointed time, at the first advent in this earth age. So we now jump ahead closer to that time.

When we read that "all living came from mother Eve", it means that "Messiah came from, or through mother Eve". He came through the offspring of mothers Eve, and Mary (who was of pure eighth day creation pedigree).
And it is through the Messiah, Christ is offering eternal life to all mankind. For acceptance of God's gift, all mankind must pass from death to eternal life through the blood of Jesus Christ. So we see this refers to spiritual life, and not physical life.

And it is through the Messiah, Christ is offering eternal life to all mankind. For acceptance of God's gift, all mankind must pass from death to eternal life through the blood of Jesus Christ. So we see this refers to spiritual life, and not physical life.
Rev. 12:5 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.
The "man child" that was brought forth in the little town of Bethlehem when Jesus the Christ child was born. There are only two events that sit upon this throne, and the only one to do this was a child. Get it? That child is Jesus Christ.
This verse covers two advents [comings]; the first is Christ's birth as a child, and His second coming will be at the seventh trumpet. And then He will come to rule all nations with a rod of iron. Jesus Christ will come as the King of Kings and Lord of Lords.

This brings us to Mary, who gave actual birth to Christ, but as you know, to get to this point and bring forth the promised Messiah (Gen. 3:15) from mother Eve on, was no small task as that great red dragon, that old serpent, tried to devour the "seed" from the beginning.

And this "man child" was to rule all nations with a rod of iron, which didn't happen when He walked this earth and hasn't happened yet. He was born an innocent babe and died to pay the price for our sins. It is when Christ returns, at His second advent, that He takes command of all nations with the rod of iron. (Don't allow this to scare you! If you love the Lord and are one of His, you are on His side! You will endure until the end and NOT WORSHIP SATAN WHEN HE COMES TO EARTH FIRST CLAIMING TO BE GOD!)

Rev. 19:15
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
What a day the sounding of that 7th Trump, announcing the Day of the Lord, that Day of Vengeance, will be. Meanwhile "her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne" where He now sits at the right hand of the Father, and He will remain there until all His enemies are His footstool.
Hebrews 10:12-13
But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; [13] From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
Neither Jesus nor Satan are present on earth, in person, at this time. And we have documented time and again that they both are returning, in person, soon. Satan comes at the 6th Trump and Christ comes at the 7th Trump. Let no man deceive or confuse you by any means. Of course, both the Holy Spirit and Satan's evil spirit, as the prince and power of the air, are present now.

Rev. 12:6 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.
This time is when God's protection is given for the woman "Israel". Following the resurrection, and transposing these days into years, it would bring us up to the early 1800's A.D., when the house of Israel nations became superpowers. (Great Britain and America)

From the parting of the Red Sea and the earthquake that split the ground asunder and swallowed all those who followed Korah, throughout the Bible, we can read how God has used nature and natural forces to protect His own and even defeat their enemies. It then should seem no great thing if the woman is protected by our Father, and she will be. We already read in Rev. 9 that Satan cannot harm in any way those with the seal of God in their foreheads.

But the wilderness is our place among the people, prepared of God, where He wants us to be. (This is why Jesus always taught in parables! But that is another story) It is not a physical place in the desert, like Petra, where we fly in a 747 Jumbo Jet to save our hides from some blood and guts battle espoused by Biblically illiterate preachers. We're foot soldiers of the Most High, and we can always be found on the front lines.   

Live Link to-  Jesus Christ told His disciples that He spoke in parables for two reasons.

You may remember that John the Baptist was a voice crying in the wilderness, and common sense tells you he wasn't preaching to the animals. He was preaching to us!

Matthew 3:3
For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
So where are we now? In the whole scheme of things?

This was a direct quote from the prophet Isaiah:
Isaiah 40:3
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
There's not much food in the desert, is there? (Not much of the Word of God actually taught in most of our Christian churches, by our one verse Revs., is there?) What did it say the woman would be doing in the wilderness? Feeding for 1260 days. And so it is that the woman will be fed during the worldwide famine of Amos 8:11, even as we now can feast on the Word of God. (Most of what we now get in our Christian churches comes from a Sunday school quarterly written by "man", probably even a Kenite man!) So, if you are one of God's elect, it is up to you to feed our people, The Word,  directly from it's source "The Bible!

And remember what will the two witnesses be doing during those same 1260 days? Rev. 11:3 "And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth." They will be prophesying, teaching. They will continue to pump oil into the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

Question: Are these 2 witnesses the Old and New Testaments of our Bible, which weren't printed until after 1454? Or The Christian and Jewish religionsOr, and this is, in mind, the most likely> Are they the members of the two end time churches of Revelation 2:9 and 3:9?  Satan will certainly want to kill them to shut them up when he comes to earth, in person, claiming he is God.

One thing is for sure, the woman is certainly not "hidden" somewhere for she will be persecuted when Satan gets here as we will see in verse 13. So much for the flying to Petra theory.

So get ready. War in heaven is about to take place in the next verse, and woe to the inhabiters of the earth.


Rev. 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
War in heaven?

"But I thought everything was peaceful and serene there with harps of gold and people sitting on fluffy clouds saying holy, holy, holy! War in heaven?"

Welcome to reality. Heaven is where Satan and his angels are right now, and wherever he is there's trouble. Yes, he's been here on earth in person before. He was in the garden and he was here when he tempted Christ.

But don't worry, he's no match for Michael and the rest of the Christian Army there.

[8] And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
See what I mean? He's a loser. And it's time this whole bunch of losers, Satan and his angels, get kicked out of heaven, to the earth. Woe! So when the war is finished on that battle front it resumes here on earth. Got your gospel armour on (Eph. 6)?

This is the time of the sounding of the sixth trumpet, when Satan and his fallen angels are released upon the earth for the final five months period, spoken of in Revelation 9:5, 10. Satan will spend five months here on earth deceiving all mankind, then go to the pit for the thousand years. After that thousand years, Satan [not his fallen angels] will be released for a short period, then go to perdition [perish]. Once Satan is kicked out of heaven, he will not be allowed to return. Today Satan is in heaven accusing the saints before the Lord.

This is prophesy that will come in the very near future.

"So that's OK Michael, send them down, we'll take it from here. Jesus has given us power over all our enemies. And believe us, were thankful and give praise to Him because our names are written in the Book of Life."
Luke 10:19-20
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. [20] Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven. (Remember, Satan is the serpent and his fallen angel followers are the scorpions! And the offspring of Cain, the Kenites. from Satan's sexual encounter with Eve in the "Garden of Edan", God refers to as Locusts!) We have been given power, through Christ, to crush them all!

Question: Want is it "We Have Power to do?"  Answer: "Tread on Them" Squash and they're history!
But, you must be able to recognize them!
Satan's angels, when they get here, will be disguised as angels of light, i.e. preachers, remember!


Luke 10:18 "And He said unto them, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

"This now is a new subject that Jesus is teaching us. This is Jesus speaking to His followers and it is prophetic, and refers back to the time of the garden of Eden, and Satan's fall from the first earth age. It also applies to Revelation 12: 7-9, when when Michael will cast Satan out onto the earth, and his fallen angels will come with him. 

(Does this mean that when Satan arrives on earth, five months before the actual return of Christ, he will bring 7000 of his fellow fallen angels with him as preachers?)

Beware!

So in the word "fall" indicates that Satan will be here in person because he was kicked out of heaven, and not on his own accord. The plan is set in motion, and it will take place exactly as it is written. Satan came in the first place as a deceiver, to destroy the seed line that the Christ would come through. The second time he will come as the false Messiah, to deceive all the people of the earth. It will happen exactly as it was prophesied.

Luke 10:19 "Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you."

You'll need it!

In the Greek text, it is "Behold I have given you the power..." The enemy is Satan, the one that will "fall as lightning from heaven onto the earth". The serpents are the Kenites, the children of Satan, through his son Cain from the garden of Eden. The Scorpions are the fallen angels, that will be booted out of heaven on to the earth right along with Satan. Revelation 12:9 "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." This next time takes place at the sixth trump, and we will see these fallen angels of Satan here on earth in our generation.

Remember in the prior verses Jesus had stated that "I send you out as sheep among the wolves." Yet God will give those lambs that He sends out, power over all the wolves that come against them, but they must know how to attain that power and authority. It isn't valuable to them until the know how to use that power. Jesus gave His lambs "power over all your enemies." then Jesus said; "And nothing shall by any means hurt you." If you say your a Christian; and Jesus gave you a promise like that, how can you have any fear of any enemy that is on this earth. We will see in Luke 21 that "not one hair on your head can be hurt", and just because you will be delivered up to death, which is the devil, to give account of yourself, doesn't mean that you will die. But you will be given the opportunity to witness to the world, and have the Holy Spirit of God be placing the words in your mouth and the thoughts in your mind.

There hasn't been one soul or spirit that has died yet, (even Satan and his fallen angels are still living) for that time of death comes at the end of judgment day, at "The Great White Throne of Judgment" after the Millennium (even for Satan and his fallen angels who were already judged). Satan is not after your physical body, but your soul and spirit, and he will try to deceive you, or buy it at his price. What is your soul worth? Is there a price that you would sell out to Satan? It is time to wake up spiritually, and open our eyes and ears to the truth. Stop and think on this: Satan's power and that of his angels are limited. in Revelation 9:4 we see that it goes; "...only to those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads." If you have studied the Word and know the truths that we will face from Satan, there is no fear or deception that can sway you.

Revelation 9:5 "And it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man."

The time that Satan and his one world system will rule is for five months.

So how is "the torment of a scorpion, when it striketh a man?" The first thing to understand is that because a scorpion has no stomach, its digestive process is outside its own body. It grabs hold of the subject, paralysis it, and vomits its digestive juices on the subject. While the subject lies helpless, the juices dissolve the subject's body and then the scorpion sucks that food back into itself. The person "man" that has been struck lies helpless through the entire process, unable to think or defend himself.

So notice first that those with the seal of the truth in their mind from verse four are not affected by Satan and his realm, and the sealing must be prior to the coming of Satan. The truth in a person's mind of the Word is the the protective barrier from the poison of that scorpion Satan's deceptions. Once Satan has arrived, then God turns, or gives the men, women and children over to Satan, and this torment comes upon them. Their ignorance of the truth from the Word is their protective barrier, for this act of following Satan in ignorance, not knowing who Satan is, will allow them the right for the teaching and instruction of the Millennium age of Christ's kingdom here on earth. So why can't they get the word at that late time when Satan is on earth? Amos 8:11 tells us that; "Behold, the days come, saith the Lord God, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread , nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the Lord." The Spirit of our heavenly Father Himself will close their minds to the truth, and turn them over to Satan.

Revelation 9:6 "And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them."

So this is how Satan and his angels will react when they come to this earth. Sure, men will seek the truth but they will not find it. When you have God's Word in your mind and soul, you will not be turned to mush at the striking of Satan's deception. Satan's time of rule will happen for a five months period, and it shall happen in our generation, just as it is written in His Word. So when Jesus gives you power over all your enemies, and if you have faith strong enough to believe, you have nothing to fear today. You will be in charge and in control over anything that will come against you, and be a strong Christian for Almighty God.

Luke 10:20 "Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven."


Now, Back to Michael. What happening with Michael?

Let's see now. When Michael stands up and fights against the dragon, it will be "woe" time, Woe Trump time, to the inhabiters of the earth (vs. 12), i.e. big trouble here. Hmmmm. That's exactly what Daniel said concerning the end time
.
Daniel 12:1
And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Again, if your name is written in the book, that would be the Book of Life, then Satan is ordered to leave you alone.

Rev. 12:9 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.
Let there be no doubt about who the great red dragon is. He is the Devil, Satan himself, that old serpent who was in the garden of Eden and seduced mother Eve.

He is cast to this earth! And he fools a couple of people? No, he deceives the WHOLE WORLD. (Remember how we talked about the large percentage of people who followed Satan in the first earth age and how they are living here now, in these last days.) He's really good. He's coming disguised as Jesus. He will sit in the temple claiming to be God (2 Thes. 2). And remember, we just read he drew away 1/3 of God's children in the "world that then was", but it will be even easier to deceive them in their flesh bodies. They will be impressed when he snaps his finger and calls fire down from heaven. (We really need to get busy and teach God's Word to as many as will open their eyes and ears to His Truth!)

"Wow", they will say! "Woe", we will say!

What is the most dangerous doctrine/belief in Christianity today? Did you know there is one? It is so dangerous that it could cause you to lose your very soul!

It is the "any moment Rapture theory"! Why? Because if a person believes that Jesus Christ can return at any moment, then when the supernatural archangel, Satan, and his angelic entourage are cast out of heaven to this earth (Rev. 12:9), disguised as Christ and His "angels of light", that person will think Jesus Christ has returned to this earth. And they will worship him as Jesus! Yuck! Just wait until the real Jesus returns at the 7th Trump and they discover they've been worshipping Satan. How ashamed they will be!

The apostle Paul made it perfectly clear in 2 Thes. 2 that we WILL NOT gather back to Jesus Christ until AFTER the son of perdition, Satan, stands in the holy place showing the world that he is God, i.e. Jesus. Until that happens Christ isn't returning, so don't expect Him today or tomorrow!

And what of Satan's angels? Yes, we read his angels are cast out with him (Rev. 12:9)! Remember those 7,000 who were measured in the temple (Rev. 11:1) and are destroyed by Christ at His return (Rev. 11:13). They were here on earth before when they seduced women, the daughters of Adam. You can read of them in Genesis chapter 6 where they are called the sons of God. They were giving and taking in marriage and giants were born as a result of their "hanky panky".

But you don't have to take anyone's word for it that these angels are coming. Jesus Christ Himself documented that they are coming again when He gave the signs of what it will be like just before He returns.

Matthew 24:37
But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
Noe is Greek for Noah. What was going on then?
[38] For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark,
Who was marrying and giving in marriage? Those before the flood, the fallen angels and the daughters of Adam. Jesus told us that it is going to be just like it was in those days before the flood. They, those seducing fallen angels, are coming again to marry and give in marriage! That is also why Paul says in 1 Cor. 11:10 that a woman should have power, the veil of Christ, on her head, i.e. be subject to Him. The reason? Read it yourself: "For this cause ought the woman to have power on her head because of the angels." Because of the angels who will be coming to seduce them. (The veil/power the woman is to have over her head in Christ!) And when the Bible says "woman" here, God is not only referring to human females, He is talking about his bride, the church, both males and females.

Satan and his angelic host will deceive the whole world, except for those who are aboard the ark of the covenant of these last days, i.e. have the seal of God in their foreheads. All others will drown in the flood of Satan's lies.

[39] And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.
There's going to be a whole bunch of people swept away, just like they were in the flood of Noah.
[40] Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
The woman taken in the field is taken by whom? By Satan and his angels, swept away in their flood of lies, just like those swept away in the flood of Noah days!
[41] Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left.
Those left working in the field, who wait upon the true bridegroom, who aren't swallowed by the flood, who aren't seduced by Satan and the fallen angels, those "virgins" who endure until the end, they are the ones who shall be saved.

When Satan is cast out it will be as it was in the days of Noah. This is what Jesus said in Matthew 24:37: "But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be." Mankind will be mixing with the angels, and the women and men will be marrying them just as was going on in Noah's day before the flood but it will be spiritual marriage this time not physical. Sodomy will be common, and all forms of filth will be made public, and accepted and considered normal. (Because of the famine for the truth that has come upon is) Why, Our Christian churches aren't telling us the whole story. Even the best of them are preaching redemption/salvation over and over to the same people who sit in their pews week after week, but only hear the milk of His Word as Paul would say; never hearing the meat of His Word! They remain baby Christians! Not learning how to tell the difference between what is Holy (Jesus Christ) and what is profane (Satan, the serpent who planted the tares amongst us in the garden.)  

The world and the Kenite influence is preparing us, and our mind to accept all forms of filth in sex and marriage as being natural; and to consider their perversion as being of God.

Your acceptance and view of this filth of sodomy and religious form will tell you to what state of depravity your mind has sunk. The condition of your soul will be determined by what you know, and how you stand on these issues, at Satan's arrival to earth.

 WHAT ARE WE DOING IN ANIMAL BODIES?
This is a lesson for all of us, who are currently living here on earth in these animal bodies, to evaluate this flesh and blood life within the proper perspective. Judgment of facts, circumstances, etc. with regard to their importance! See pamphlet #1733 "Does anybody really know what time it is? Does anybody really care?" "Turn! Turn! Turn!" Our Father will soon give this "world age" a final spin. It is what happens to you next which is important!
Help! Lord! Help! Get me out of this animal (terrestrial) body and back into my spiritual (celestial) body! --- In Revelation 22:12 You promised to hurry! --- In the book of Revelation Jesus took the apostle John, in the spirit, nearly 2000 years into the future (that is to our 21st century "Generation of the Fig Tree") and showed him what was going on in the Christian churches of today, both the good and the bad things they are doing. Then he took John spiritually into heaven and from there showed him what is and will happen, both there and here on earth, telling him to write it down so that you and I could read it and understand, knowing what to expect and recognize when we see it come to pass. In Rev. 22:12 Jesus said, and, had John write, "behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me,...." When Jesus told John to write down that He would come quickly, He did not mean from when He said it, but, quickly from this 21st century He had taken John to "in the spirit". --- A new spiritual body; That's one reward I can't wait to receive! A new celestial body for all eternity. --- Jesus, I've claimed your precious blood, your shed blood on the cross to cover my sins! Thank you, Lord! But I'm impatient, --- PLEASE COME QUICKLY! I know, I know, When you return at the seventh trump, Satan will have been here already for five months, claiming that he is God. And, I'll still be in this flesh and blood (animal) body Your return will all happen fast, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye I'll be changed into my spiritual body. 1 Cor. 15:52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump:...--- I can't stand this waiting around, here in the flesh! Rev. 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. --- Can you even begin to imagine such a society? No more pain and suffering, no more disease and war and death and dying. All the former things, all the evil spirits, all the wicked people, all corruptible flesh are passed away, GONE! --- [5] And He that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And He said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. --- So if it sounds too utopian for the skeptic, or it sounds too good to be true, it isn't. In fact the words of man cannot even begin to describe the beauty and wonder, and yes, even the excitement of all that our Father has planned for His children. Man's words cannot describe it because man's mind cannot imagine it. This we know for it also is written and is true and faithful: --- 1 Cor. 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him --- Rev. 21:6 And He said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. [7] He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.  
THIS IS WHAT WE ARE DOING IN THESE ANIMAL BODIES?
Because God loves us, and after all those millions of years living together in the first earth age, it is not too hard to figure out the reason He chose to place us here, on earth, for this short stay (120 years maximum), probably more like 70 or 80, for some only 20, or 30, maybe much less!, in this animal body is so that we can learn to appreciate the finality of death.  As we experience seeing our loved ones die "the shadow of death", the death of their flesh, while we are still living here on earth in our own flesh and blood body, and can no longer communicate with that loved one who has died. Seeing as how 1/3 of us (over 4 1/2 billion of God's created children) followed Satan, turning our backs on God in the first earth age, God is counting on this teaching those of us, who still see no need to accept His offer of grace, in this earth age, to be saved by accepting the blood of Christ for our salvation, a lesson about the real death, the death of our soul and how permanent that will be, which we will not forget during the Millennium, during which time we will be given a chance to still save our souls by being judged by our works.  No longer by faith in Christ, but by our works during the Millennium, ( by faith in Him, but only during this FLESH AGE) He is counting on us, after seeing this "Shadow of real death", not wanting to experience the death of our soul, realizing it is forever, and so will live accordingly during the Millennium. (by His will and not Satan's) 

               
To study the Bible is the noblest of all pursuits; to understand it, the highest of all goals. 
We pray that with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, you accomplish both.
