Does Revelation 12 Speak of a Jewish Uprising?
By Irvin Baxter
Question: Bonnie from Canada: Do you think that Revelation 12 is speaking of a Jewish uprising in America that will cause America to bring the Jews back to Israel?
Answer: That particular passage “Revelation 12:14” happens right after the war in heaven. The war in heaven will take place three and a half years before the Battle of Armageddon. Satan is going to make a last ditch effort to overthrow God Himself. Satan is going to be so deceived in his own mind that he’s going to think he can pull it off. He’s going to know that he is only three and a half years away from going into the bottomless pit. The Bible says Michael, who is the head of the army in heaven, will defeat Satan and his angels and the penalty Satan will receive will be banishment from heaven and confinement to the earth for the next three and a half years. Satan is then going to go make war with the woman and of course Israel, and the remnant of her seed. Israel will then be given two wings of a great eagle so that she may fly into her place. I believe that these wings are going to be of aid to Israel during the war. We cannot ignore that in other scriptures the eagles wings are a form of symbolism for America. I believe that America will be on Israel’s side during this war.
