And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.(Revelation 12:1-6) KJV
Revelation chapter 12 includes a fascinating description of an event in the heavens. Is it real, or is it a metaphor for something? Is it a prophecy about the future, or is it a historical event?
It’s a piece of a puzzle and it has to fit in with the other pieces, so let’s look at a different piece and determine the relationship between them. In a way we’re going to use relativity to deduce something about where this puzzle piece fits.
What do we mean by “use relativity?” We can point a telescope at a star and measure luminosity and spectra. That’s it. How bright it is and what color is the light. Nothing else. We know nothing about it. However, by observing the relative motion of the stars around it we can learn more. We learn about the star by examining the ones around it and relating their properties to it.
We all have the same evidence. Our choice of paradigm determines what we think it’s evidence of.– Matty’s Razor
Relationships, Cause and Effect, Logic and Reason.
Unto the woman he said, I will greatly multiply thy sorrow and thy conception; in sorrow thou shalt bring forth children; and thy desire shall be to thy husband, and he shall rule over thee.(Genesis 3:16) KJV
Faith isn’t a substitute for logic and reason. Having faith is the reason why we know that we should be using logic and reason. We’re going to learn how these puzzle pieces fit together by using some logic and reason. We’ll use it to deduce the correct relationship between cause and effect.
Look at what the text says in Revelation 12:1-6. The woman in heaven was travailing in birth. Labor pains is part of the curse God placed on Eve at the fall of man. How could the woman in heaven be travailing in birth before this curse was put upon women? That’s how we use relativity.
- IF the pain of childbirth is the curse placed on Eve when she was banished from the garden of Eden in Genesis 3,
- AND the woman in Revelation 12 is travailing in birth,
- THEN Revelation 12, the war in heaven, happened AFTER Genesis 3,
- THEREFORE Satan can’t have been in the garden of Eden.
Which came first? The war in heaven or the fall of man? Simple deduction causes us to conclude that the fall of man was first.
