Cosmic War

| July 10, 2010

Many people wonder about mysterious things like UFO sightings, The Great Pyramid in Egypt, The Sphinx, Stonehenge, and the possibility of life on Mars or other planets. And you’ll see show after show about these things on television as well as the internet, each one with a different explanation or theory. So what is the truth anyways?

Well we know from Revelation Ch.12 that the war against tyranny, oppression, darkness, and deception expands far beyond just our lifetime and the limits of earth. This war is a cosmic conflict that has been going on throughout the ages involving angelic hosts traveling vast distances across space and dimensions unseen.

Some would say, “Are you crazy? The Bible doesn’t mention anything about heavenly vehicles traveling through space.” Then I would say, “Haven’t you ever read the book of Ezekiel?”

In Ezekiel Ch.1 the prophet gives an eyewitness account of a whole fleet of heavenly crafts landing directly in front of him as he was by the river Chebar. In fact, he described these crafts as being highly polished metallic disks. Sound familiar to you? And in Genesis 6 we have another account, but this time it was group of bad angels who came to earth in these crafts in an attempt to corrupt the seed line in which Christ was to come through. And there are many other scriptures mentioning these types of things.

Knowing this and understanding the big picture of what’s going on, helps explain many of these mysterious things.

But let’s go back and take another look at these verses from Revelation 12 that we looked at last week.

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

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. 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.” –Revelation 12:3-4

These two heavenly signs portray this cosmic battle between good and evil beginning at Satan’s Rebellion in the first heaven and earth age (Isaiah 14, Ezekiel 28). The woman with child represents God’s Kingdom while the great red dragon with seven heads represents Satan’s kingdom.

Woman = God’s Kingdom

Dragon = Satan’s Kingdom

And what does it mean when it says the dragon drew a third part of the stars of heaven?

Well I think it has a couple of meanings. First, those stars represent a third of the angels who followed Satan during his great rebellion. Secondly, I believe it has to do with Satan conquering and controlling a third part of the Milky Way galaxy, or possibly even a third part of the entire universe including other dimensions that we cannot see.

Perhaps that’s why he is called the prince of the power of the air in Ephesians 2:2.

And he conquers by manipulation and mind control. You don’t have to look very far to see him in action. Just pay a visit to your local public school.

But getting back to the signs of the woman and the dragon. Did you know that these are actual signs or constellations that you can see in the night sky? And did you know that the plan of God is foretold of in the Signs of the Zodiac? Yes the Bible is written in the stars.

And no I’m not referring to Astrology or some other perversion of these ancient truths fixed in the heavens.

So when you’re out sometime looking into the night sky, know that those stars tell a story. And understand that there is a lot of activity taking place out there, and someday all of that action is coming here when Satan is defeated and cast out of the heavens by Michael and his angels to earth where this cosmic conflict will be decided.

As it is written:

“And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not, neither was there place found any more in heaven.

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.” –Revelation 12:7-9

Think of it beloved. When this battle comes to earth God is going to use us, just a small remnant of believers who are willing stand up against dragon and his wicked angels, regardless of the price (Revelation 12:17). Yes little insignificant us to fight in this last stand in the Cosmic war against evil and tyranny. I don’t think we can even begin to realize the significance of what we’re going to be a part of. But know this. There is a reason you are reading this message today, and there is a reason you were chosen to live at this time and at this hour.
