The Dragon Thrown Down to Earth

The Woman, Her Son, And The Dragon

1 A great #Sign appeared in #Heaven: a Woman dressed all in sunlight, standing on the moon, and crowned with Twelve Stars.

2 She was giving birth to a #Child and cried out in the pain of childbirth.

3 And then another #Sign alongside the first: a huge and fiery #Dragon! It had seven heads and ten horns, a crown on each of the seven heads.

4 With one flick of its tail it knocked a third of the #Stars from the sky and dumped them on earth. The Dragon crouched before the #Woman in childbirth, poised to eat up the #Child when it came.

5 The Woman gave birth to a #Son who will #shepherd all nations with an iron rod. Her #Son was seized and placed #safely before God on his #Throne.

6 The Woman herself escaped to the #desert to a place of safety prepared by God, all comforts provided her for one thousand two hundred and sixty days.

7 War broke out in #Heaven. #Micgael and his #Angels fought the Dragon. The Dragon and his Angels fought back.

8 but were #no-match for Michael. They were cleared out of #Heaven, not a sign of them left.

9 The great Dragon —- ancient #Serpent, the one called #Devil and #Satan, the one who led the whole earth astray —- thrown out, and all his Angels thrown out with him, thrown down to #earth.

Revelation 12:1-9 from Bible The Message version.
