A heavenly war, a huge victory, a retreating enemy, scorching the earth in his fury … It is an epic vision! But where does it fit in the Apocalypse? #Revelation12 #SatanCastOut #ArchangelMichael
It is a pivotal story placed at the center of John’s Apocalypse, but who are the characters, and what does it mean? #Revelation12 #TheDragon #WomanInLabor #RodofIron
God is never defeated or thwarted by what happens in the real world. The Lord is actually able to work through everything to move forward with God’s plan, and all events have one ultimate goal of redemption and restoration.
The Bible does not offer superficial answers to these questions. The Bible does not offer catchy slogans or rhyming word art. The Bible instead pushes us to a mature view of Who God really is, so that we can put our trust in the God of reality, the God Who actually exists.
It is such a familiar passage, but reading it in Greek made me notice a couple of things I might have otherwise missed. #Revelation12 #fierydrago #WomaninLabor #ASonIsBorn
It seems fitting that giving God glory on earth would result in the seventh trumpet sounding resounding praise in heaven.
It started out with a Facebook chat. I was intrigued with the premise of Amanda's podcast, and Amanda(surprisingly, graciously) asked if I'd like to be interviewed. #JoannesStory #ACupOfGratitude @AmandaSchaefer
They are mindless, the prophet wrote, utterly without a clear thought in their heads. Otherwise, how in the world could they look at this perfectly good log, get so much good use out of it – thanks be to God who provided that log – then worship what’s left of it?!
After making a way to restoration and new life, after pouring rivers of refreshment and revival into the sere desert of their circumstances … there is no praise, there is no lifting of heads. You have been weary of Me, God said.
To the watching world, it seemed as though God had abandoned these two prophets to their foes. At last, or so they must have thought, God’s opponent had gotten the upper hand. What glee! What giddy excitement! But also what despair.
