  45. 45. REVELATION 12 Mindset 1: The Case For Fear
  46. 46. SATAN SPARES NO ONE HIS W RATH He’s determined to do his very w orst to disrupt God’s stated intentions to save Israel, preserve the saints and redeem the earth from the cu rse and its tyrant.
  47. 47. SATAN SPARES NO ONE HIS W RATH He’s determined to do his very w orst to disrupt God’s stated intentions to save Israel, preserve the saints and redeem the earth from the cu rse and its tyrant. Aware of His Crisis: 12:12 tells us that Satan, thrown from heaven, knows his time is short! Satan proceeds without hesitation to destroy God’s plan. 1260 days left 42 months left Time, times and half a time left Full of Wrath: 12:12 again. Satan unleashes his aggression and wrath, holding nothing back.
  48. 48. SATAN SPARE S NO ONE HIS WRATH: He’s determined to do his ve ry worst to disrupt God’s sta ted intentions to save Isr ael, preserve the saints and redeem the earth fro m the curse and its tyrant.
  49. 49. SATAN SPARE S NO ONE HIS WRATH: He’s determined to do his ve ry worst to disrupt God’s sta ted intentions to save Isr ael, preserve the saints and redeem the earth fro m the curse and its tyrant. Flexible Strategist 12:13-17 Satan engages targets of opportunity in quick succession, never lingering too long over any setbacks The Woman-Israel The Man Child-Christ, Church or 144K The Saints Clever Administrator: 13:2 Satan delegates authority and power to the Beast/AntiChrist. Mimics Christ’s incarnation
  50. 50. SATAN SPARE S NO ONE HIS WRATH: He’s determined to do his ve ry worst to disrupt God’s sta ted intentions to save Isr ael, preserve the saints and redeem the earth fro m the curse and its tyrant.
  51. 51. SATAN SPARE S NO ONE HIS WRATH: He’s determined to do his ve ry worst to disrupt God’s sta ted intentions to save Isr ael, preserve the saints and redeem the earth fro m the curse and its tyrant. Powerful Adversary 12:13-17 Satan resurrects the dead man who will be the Beast, grants power to perform miracles. Focuses on the Saints 13:7 Satan’s war on the saints succeeds on many physical and political levels-Bible says AntiChrist will ‘overcome’ them!
  52. 52. REVELATION 12 Mindset 2: The Case For Hope and Courage
  53. 53. SAT AN’S FAILURE ASSURED F or all his great power, fi erce determination and cruelty, Satan fails on virtually every front.
  54. 54. SAT AN’S FAILURE ASSURED F or all his great power, fi erce determination and cruelty, Satan fails on virtually every front. Fails in History: 12:1-6 Falls from heaven (vs 4) long ago-loses citizenship, as it were. Cannot disrupt Christ’s ministry Fails in Heaven 12:7-14 His assault on heaven in the end times fails when Michael defeats him and throws him to earth-never to ‘visit’ heaven in any capacity again.
  55. 55. SAT AN’S FAILURE ASSURED F or all his great power, fi erce determination and cruelty, Satan fails on virtually every front.
  56. 56. SAT AN’S FAILURE ASSURED F or all his great power, fi erce determination and cruelty, Satan fails on virtually every front. Overdriven by Time Constraints: 12:1-6 Satan knows his time is short, his doom all but sealed. Hate drives him and blinds him at the same time. He behaves desperately, loses knack for subtlety and tries to bull his way to victory. Fails Against the Church 12:11 The brethren overcome him by the blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony and they did not love their life even when faced with death!
  57. 57. SATAN ’S FAILURE ASSURED For all his great power , fierce determination and cruelty, Satan fails on virtually every front.
  58. 58. SATAN ’S FAILURE ASSURED For all his great power , fierce determination and cruelty, Satan fails on virtually every front. Fails Against 70th Week Israel: 12:14-16 When cast to earth by Michael, Satan pursues The Woman. God supernaturally protects this remnant (in Edom?). Fails to God-proof His Own Kingdom God bruises and strikes Satan’s Kingdom throughout the deployment of the Seals, Trumpets and Bowls. God demonstrates His omnipotence in plague after brutal plague and Satan can do nothing to prevent Him!
