War in Heaven? 

New Testament: Rev 12.7–8

To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 12 on December 21, In the year of our Lord Christ 2022

By Don Ruhl 

War in heaven is incomprehensible to us, because we are doing everything we can to get there since it has none of the bad things of earth. 

Yet, it did happen. God created Satan originally as someone good, but he rebelled and sought to fight the Lord: 

And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.

– Revelation 12.7–8 

It is good to know that Michael and his angels removed the enemies of our souls. Are you not glad that no place exists for them any longer in heaven? Those who go to heaven are those who want to go to heaven, not to take it over from God, but to live with God. 

No evil shall exist there.
