We were told in Revelation 10:11 that John still had to prophesy about many peoples, nations, languages, and kings.
Micah prophesies that Israel will go into Babylonian captivity in severe pain like a woman in labor. But you, O Bethlehem Ephrathah, who are too little to be among the clans of Judah, from you shall come forth for me one who is to be ruler in Israel, whose coming forth is from of old, from ancient days.
Micah says that the suffering of the nation will continue until the remnant brings about the birth of the Messiah. Verse 5 confirms our interpretation of these symbols using language reserved for the Messiah. From his mouth comes a sharp sword with which to strike down the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron.
The effect of Christ’s victory on the cross over Satan and sin is declared in verse 10.
Because Satan’s plan has been thwarted to destroy the Christ, Satan turns his attention to the woman. Being carried on eagles’ wings into the wilderness is a reference to how God delivered the Israelites from Egyptian slavery into the wilderness to Mount Sinai.
Now that the fall of the Jewish nation has been detailed in Revelation 11, our attention is turned to the next object of God’s judgment. A woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. 3 Therefore he shall give them up until the time when she who is in labor has given birth; then the rest of his brothers shall return to the people of Israel.
8 Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. The ultimate meaning of Christ’s victory over Satan will be graphically revealed to us in Revelation 20.
We were told back in verse 6 that the woman would flee to the wilderness for protection during these tribulation times.
You yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to myself. The book, written by a man identified as John, vividly sketches out grim details of the end of the world.

Curiously, many of our brethren see chapters 12-19 as a recapitulation of the events we have read about in chapters 6-11. The picture is of suffering bringing about a remnant, God’s spiritual nation, that God will rescue and redeem. 4 And he shall stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the LORD, in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God.
Satan attempts to kill the Christ, but Christ is raised from the dead and ascends to the Father. Verse 13 picks back up on that thought after noting the effect of Christ’s victory over Satan.
That is, if the author sees Rome destroyed in chapter 11, then chapters 12-19 are about the fall of Rome from a different perspective. 10 Writhe and groan, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in labor, for now you shall go out from the city and dwell in the open country; you shall go to Babylon. The seven heads and ten horns picture a terrifying image of great power, authority, knowledge, and strength.
Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us. Others believe the book is meant to be an allegory for the struggle between good and evil.Religion professor and author Elaine Pagels has studied Christianity extensively, and recently wrote a book about Revelation, with the goal of exploring the legendary book as well as the historical, political and social context in which it was penned.
Similarly, if the author sees Jerusalem destroyed in chapter 11, then chapters 12-19 are about the fall of Jerusalem from a different perspective.
She has been given authority and honor as seen with the crown of twelve stars and the moon under her feet.
The labor pains were a prediction of the suffering of the physical nation of Israel which would result in the purifying of the people so that God would have his remnant.
I do not think we should start reading this as a literal activity of Satan living in heaven but now lives on the earth. However, the woman was given two wings of the great eagle to fly to wilderness for protection for a time, times, and half a time.
The woman represented the remnant of Israel who were spiritually true to the Lord and brought about the child, the Christ. Her interest in Revelation began as a teenager when she herself rediscovered a spiritual side."When I was about 14, much to my parents' shock, because they weren't particularly religious, my father was a biologist who had no use for religion, I went to an Evangelical revival and I was born again.

I believe the book of Revelation is moving forward in prophecy rather than restating that which was already predicted in the earlier chapters of the book.
We learned in Revelation 11 that 1260 days is the same as 42 months, which is the same as a time, times, and half a time.
I joined an Evangelical church and they were very much involved with this book, and of course the book is enormously graphic."She left the church a year later after finding herself at odds with some of their more hard-line interpretations of the Bible and Christianity, but the power and influence of religion continued to fascinate her. The woman is still the first century remnant who are enduring tribulation but are spiritually secure.
This great power is shown in verse 4 where the dragon is able to sweep down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. Through Jesus’ death and resurrection salvation has come and Christ is exercising his rule in his kingdom. Bush was reportedly referring to Biblical prophecies in conversations with other officials as part of his rationale for going to war in Iraq."That got my attention, that this book should be read this way by people today was startling, and just the fact that it's been read that way for thousands of years."So what do we know about the book? Through all things, the people of God must be faithful, testifying and confessing Jesus, even to the point of death.
Certain Biblical followers believe that the author John is actually John the Apostle, but Pagels says the author never refers to himself as an Apostle.
Chapter 13 is going to show us how Satan is going to take his attack to the church in the future. This sounds fantastic and exaggerated [but] makes more sense when you know it's written by a refugee from a terrible war."She said John is from a place that was ravaged by the Roman army. Satan now attacks the church, those who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
After the Jews started a rebellion against the empire in 66 CE, the Romans responded by killing Jewish rebels and burning their towns down en route to Jerusalem, where they destroyed parts of the city and sacked temples. Revelation, then, is perceived by some Biblical scholars to be a politically inspired anti-Roman narrative in which the epic war between angels and demons is actually about the real historical conflicts, in which the author perceives the Roman empire to be akin to an evil force and Rome itself to be Hell on Earth. The outcome, then, would be John's hope that the empire would collapse and for Christianity to prevail.
