Main Introduction

Illustration
The Bible is a book of blood … wholly distinct from all other books for just one reason, namely, that it contains blood circulating through every page and in every verse. From Genesis to Revelation we see the stream of blood.—M. R. DeHaan*
Raise Need:
Everything about the death of Christ was bloody—the slapping of his face must have cut his face; the scourge ripped apart his back; the crown of thorns pierced his brow; blood from his hands and ankles spurted with every blow of the hammer; blood likely oozed from his nose and mouth as he writhed on the cross; blood and water gushed from his side when the lance tore him open. It was not a bloodless death. It was a death designed to paint the cross crimson.

I am very tired, but must go on … A fire is in my bones … Oh God, what can I say? Souls! Souls! Souls! My heart hungers for souls!—General William Booth
Background/Intro Material:
I would rather win souls than be the greatest king or emperor on earth; I would rather win souls than be the greatest general that ever commanded an army; I would rather win souls than be the greatest poet, or novelist, or literary man who ever walked the earth. My one ambition in life is to win as many as possible.—R. A. Torrey
There is a power which lies at the center of all success in preaching, and whose influence reaches out to the circumference, and is essential everywhere. Without its presence we cannot imagine the most brilliant talents making a preacher of the Gospel in the fullest sense. Where it is largely present, it is wonderful how many deficiencies count for nothing … The power is the value of the human soul, felt by the preacher and inspiring all his work.—Phillips Brooks, in Lectures on Preaching
[Morgan, 85.]

I. First Main Point

I. The War in Heaven ().

A. The Opponents ().

1. The Captains ().

Revelation 12:7 KJV 1900
And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

a. Of the Armies of Heaven (v. 7a).

a
“Michael and his angels fought.” Who is Michael?
He is leading the army of angels who are battling Satan and his angels. Michael is mentioned five times in the Scriptures: (; ; ; ). He seems to be the highest of all angels. Jude calls him THE archangel. Read and .
It seems that Michael is the leading angel having to do with the Jewish people . . . he is probably the guardian angel over God’s elect: “And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people” (). That refers to Israel. Michael shall stand up to see that Israel does not perish in the Great Tribulation - the time of Jacob’s trouble. “He (Jacob) shall be saved out of it” (). Michael is the militant angel who fights on the side of God’s elect-Israel.
...The struggle between light and darkness, though invisible, is nevertheless real. Read , . Angels and angelic influence toward Christians here on earth is accepted by most spiritual people as a Bible fact. I believe that every born again person has a guardian angel (, ). Angels watch over little children ().
[Oliver B. Greene, Revelation, A Verse by Verse Study, Commentaries and Writings of Oliver B. Greene (The Gospel Hour, Inc., 1963), 252–253.]

b. Of the Enemies from Hell (v. 7b).

a
The biblical teaching that an attack against the Lord’s creation, including His angels and His people, is an attack against Christ is foundational to the understanding of this battle. For instance, when the Lord Jesus Christ stopped Saul of Tarsus on the Damascus road, He asked the poignant question, “Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? I am Jesus whom thou persecutest…” (). Saul had previously led in the stoning of Stephen and attacked the Jerusalem church (), and the Saviour revealed that it was really an attack upon Him. Since Jehovah had put “enmity” between the seed of the serpent (the Antichrist) and the seed of the woman (Christ), Satan has attacked both Christ directly and His creation indirectly through the centuries (cf. ). The great red dragon had failed in his efforts against the precious Lord Jesus, and now his attack was upon the Jewish remnant. In order to overcome the woman, the dragon needed to defeat the woman’s protecting angel—Michael, as Daniel predicted, saying, “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” (cf. ).
[Thomas M. Strouse, To the Seven Churches: A Commentary on the Apocalypse of Jesus Christ, Selected Works of Dr. Thomas M. Strouse (Bible Baptist Theological Press, 40 Country Squire Rd., Cromwell, CT 06461, 2013), 483.]

2. The Combat ().

Revelation 12:8 KJV 1900
And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

a. The Dragon Overpowered (v. 8a).

Job 25:2 KJV 1900
Dominion and fear are with him, He maketh peace in his high places.
Job 25:1–2 KJV 1900
Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said, Dominion and fear are with him, He maketh peace in his high places.
Job 25:1–2 KJV 1900
Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said, Dominion and fear are with him, He maketh peace in his high places.
Job 25:1–3 KJV 1900
Then answered Bildad the Shuhite, and said, Dominion and fear are with him, He maketh peace in his high places. Is there any number of his armies? And upon whom doth not his light arise?

b. The Dragon Ousted (v. 8b).

a
a
Apparently, Satan and his demons had a place around the thrown of God, as Micaiah stated, saying, “And he said, Hear thou therefore the word of the LORD: I saw the LORD sitting on his throne, and all the host of heaven standing by him on his right hand and on his left (). John used the second aorist passive form of eurisko to denote that the Lord did not find their place and therefore excluded the satanic host from His presence. He intensified the expulsion with the little adverb éti (“any more”) to show that the heavenly exclusion was thorough and final. For the first time since Lucifer’s fall, heaven will have respite from the presence and antagonism of God’s archenemy.
[Strouse, 487.]
Thomas M. Strouse, 487.]
The greater question however is when this battle takes place. Several views are generally advanced. The first is that the war in question took place when Satan rebelled against God in ages past resulting in their expulsion from heaven. Another view is that the war in question is conflict in heaven between Satan and God during the Tribulation. This view posits the position that Satan apparently has still been allowed access before God down through the ages as the accuser of the brethren. See . A third view is that there has been a spiritual war going on ever since Satan rebelled against God and continues to this day. The war will come to a head during the Tribulation when Satan is no longer allowed access to heaven. Though this is not the final climactic battle with Satan, it is significant in the scope of the Tribulation in that Satan’s wrath is taken out against God’s people on the earth. This third view is the likely position as the following text will show.
[David H. Sorenson, Understanding the Bible, An Independent Baptist Commentary - Hebrews through Revelation, vol. 11, Understanding the Bible, An Independent Baptist Commentary (Northstar Ministries, 2007), 458–459.]

B. The Outcome ().

Revelation 12:9 KJV 1900
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.
Note - This occurs at the Mid-point of the Tribulation

1. The Dragon’s Description (v. 9a).

Isaiah 27:1 KJV 1900
In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword Shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, Even leviathan that crooked serpent; And he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.
Isaiah 51:9 KJV 1900
Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; Awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon?
Ezekiel 29:3 KJV 1900
Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.
Ezek.

a. Archaic Serpent.

Genesis 3:1 KJV 1900
Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?
Isaiah 27:1 KJV 1900
In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword Shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, Even leviathan that crooked serpent; And he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.
Matthew 23:33 KJV 1900
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
Isaiah 51:9 KJV 1900
Awake, awake, put on strength, O arm of the Lord; Awake, as in the ancient days, in the generations of old. Art thou not it that hath cut Rahab, and wounded the dragon?
Matthew 23:33 KJV 1900
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
a
Subtlety, craft and deep cunning are characteristic features of Satan from the beginning of his history in connection with the human race. I am satisfied that is a true and actual account of what took place in the Garden of Eden. I believe Satan spoke through a real serpent. There is no need supposing that such is an impossibility, because it is not.
There are at least three remarkable instances in the Old Testament where lower animals were given miraculous use of the power of speech. Speech was given to the serpent (). A certain intelligence and speech were granted to Balaam’s ass (). The great fish which swallowed Jonah answered to the voice of the Lord God and disgorged the penitent prophet on dry ground (). I firmly believe in the exact historical accuracy of these narratives, which moreover are vouched for in the New Testament (; ,; ).
[Greene, 255.]
Matthew 23:33 KJV 1900
Ye serpents, ye generation of vipers, how can ye escape the damnation of hell?
2 Corinthians 11:3 KJV 1900
But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
Ezekiel 29:3 KJV 1900
Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.

b. Diabolical Opposer.

1 Chronicles 21:1 KJV 1900
And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.
Note - Dia + Ballw = to throw through, or to slander; see for a Biblical Case Study on the Slander of Satan.
Note - on Satan, also see:
Zechariah 3:1–2 KJV 1900
And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him. And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; Even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee: Is not this a brand plucked out of the fire?

c. Ecumenical Deceiver.

John 8:44 KJV 1900
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Note - Strouse points out the danger of ecumenism well:
This is the Greek source for the Latin oecumenicus and English “ecumenical” meaning “inhabited house.” The ecumenical movement is a diabolical effort to unite all “divisions” of Christendom into one universal conglomerate of theological heresies, and described by the Revelator as “Babylon the great, the mother of harlots” ().

C. Jason Walker, Course Notes - Pensacola Theological Seminary | Commentary, n.d.
Now when I was studying and preparing this message, I thought to myself, “You know, Satan’s on his way down.” First of all, he is cast out of his lofty mountain where he was the anointed cherub, ministering praise to God, but still given access. And now that limited access is taken from Satan, and he’s cast down to the earth. But soon he’s going to be cast into the bottomless pit, the abyss. And soon he’s going to be taken out of the abyss and put into the lowest hell, and that’s where he will spend eternity, in the lowest hell, and he won’t be ruling there in hell. The one who said, “I will exalt myself above the stars of God” () will be brought down into the lowest hell. And if you’re following him, you’ll be there with him. Hell was prepared for the devil and his angels (). Why follow a loser? Friend, I’m following the Lord Jesus Christ.

Transition: I regret to inform you that there’s a Terrible War that’s going on in Heaven, but now, I’ve got the latest update for you about how the conflict of the ages is going, and I’m thrilled to bring you-

II. Second Main Point

II. The Word from Heaven ().

A. God’s Kingdom Is Come ().

1. The Awe (v. 10a).

Revelation 12:10 KJV 1900
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

a. Salvation.

b. Power (Capability).

c. Kingdom.

d. Authority.

1 Corinthians 15:27–28 KJV 1900
For he hath put all things under his feet. But when he saith, all things are put under him, it is manifest that he is excepted, which did put all things under him. And when all things shall be subdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be subject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.
1Cor. 15:

2. The Accuser (v. 10b).

a. His Betrayal Squashed.

Romans 8:28–38 KJV 1900
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
Romans 8:28–39 KJV 1900
And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren. Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified. What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us? He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is God that justifieth. Who is he that condemneth? It is Christ that died, yea rather, that is risen again, who is even at the right hand of God, who also maketh intercession for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

b. His Accusations Endless.

1 John 2:1–2 KJV 1900
My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

B. God’s Will Is Done in Heaven ().

1. Faith Is the Victory ().

Revelation 12:11 KJV 1900
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Note - 3 Keys to Victory: (they = believers)
Basis - The Blood of the Lamb (the Work of Christ)
Activity - Testimony/Witness
Attitude - Complete Self-sacrifice - Willing to die
“Seeming defeat is ultimate victory.” - Ryrie, p. 92

a. The Believer’s Conquest - The Blood of the Lamb.

Genesis 3:20–21 KJV 1900
And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them.
Genesis 4:4 KJV 1900
And Abel, he also brought of the firstlings of his flock and of the fat thereof. And the Lord had respect unto Abel and to his offering:
Isaiah 53:5–7 KJV 1900
But he was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities: The chastisement of our peace was upon him; And with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; We have turned every one to his own way; And the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, Yet he opened not his mouth: He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, So he openeth not his mouth.
Hebrews 11:28 KJV 1900
Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.
Note - the Doctrine of the Blood of Christ the Lamb of God throughout Revelation:
Revelation 1:5 KJV 1900
And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,
Revelation 5:9 KJV 1900
And they sung a new song, saying, Thou art worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation;
Re
Revelation 7:14 KJV 1900
And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
1 John 5:5 KJV 1900
Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
1Jn.

b. The Believer’s Confession - The Word of Their Testimony.

2 Thessalonians 2:13 KJV 1900
But we are bound to give thanks alway to God for you, brethren beloved of the Lord, because God hath from the beginning chosen you to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth:
John 18:37 KJV 1900
Pilate therefore said unto him, Art thou a king then? Jesus answered, Thou sayest that I am a king. To this end was I born, and for this cause came I into the world, that I should bear witness unto the truth. Every one that is of the truth heareth my voice.

2. The Believer’s Courage - Devoted to the Death ().

John 12:25 KJV 1900
He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.
a
Matthew 10:27–28 KJV 1900
What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops. And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.
Matthew 10:28–30 KJV 1900
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.
These brethren in that day overcome (get the victory) over the devil by (a) “the blood of the Lamb” and (b) “the word of their testimony.” Powerful is the effect of the blood of the Lamb in the battle against Satan. Even in this day, it is a powerful deterrent to Satan’s influence. It absolutely protects us in our position in Christ. Pleading the blood also brings victory over temptation and other Satanic influence. Moreover, the word of our testimony is a powerful deterrent to Satanic influence. Clearly implied is outspoken testifying. It is taking the offensive spiritually. It gives direct victory over Satan’s power. Moreover, the brethren in that day will love not their lives unto the death. They will be willing to have their heads removed for the name of Jesus.
[Sorenson, 460.]

3. The Believer’s Choir - Rejoicing in the Heavens ().

Revelation 12:12 KJV 1900
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
Note - plural to show that Satan is NOWHERE to be found in all the heavens which includes:
2 Corinthians 12:4 KJV 1900
How that he was caught up into paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter.
2 Corinthians 12:14 KJV 1900
Behold, the third time I am ready to come to you; and I will not be burdensome to you: for I seek not yours, but you: for the children ought not to lay up for the parents, but the parents for the children.
Luke 23:43 KJV 1900
And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, To day shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Revelation 2:7 KJV 1900
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 tree of life, which is in the midst of the paradise of God.
2 Corinthians 5:8 KJV 1900
We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
John 14:3 KJV 1900
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.
2 Cor. 5:8
2 Corinthians 5:8 KJV 1900
We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord.
Philippians 1:21 KJV 1900
For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
Revelation 11:15 KJV 1900
And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

C. Satan’s Wrath Is Upon the Earth ().

Revelation 12:12 KJV 1900
Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

1. Description of Woe.

Revelation 8:13 KJV 1900
And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound!

2. Diabolical Wrath.

a
The reason for this first woe is that “the devil” ...“is come down” ... to the earth inhabitants. This descent corresponds to Satan’s fall from heaven as a star when the Fifth Trumpet Judgment (= First Woe Judgment) sounded (cf. .).
[Strouse, 497.]

Conclusion

Summary/Review:
The Terrible War - The Bad Guy’s Don’t Always Win - The Lord’s Army Is Greater than the Devil’s - The Devil Is a Sore Loser - One day, he’s going to take his wrath out on the earth, middle way through the Tribulation - He’s doomed to the Abyss, and then the Lake of Fire - He only has a little time, and he knows it - Don’t become one of his casualties - Don’t let your loved ones be part of his casualty - There are souls to rescue from sin - How many are the souls that you will win? I’m On the Winning Side!
I’m grieved to tell you that there is a Terrible War in heaven; but I’m glad to report that the Tremendous Word from heaven is that WE WIN!
