A male child to rule all nations

Revelation Bible Background

New Testament: Rev 12.5

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 12 on December 21, In the year of our Lord Christ 2019

By Don Ruhl

John saw God’s people, represented by a pregnant woman, and she gave birth to the Son of God:

She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.

– Revelation 12.5

That Child has been caught up to God and His throne, and now that Child rules with His Father over all the nations of the earth. That does not necessarily mean that the nations of the earth recognize Him as the ruler, nevertheless, He does rule over them and He brings up one nation and takes down another, but ultimately He rules over the church, which is His body in the world.


  • Do you consider the church to be the greatest kingdom ever on the earth?
  • If not, what do you think has surpassed the church?
