Bible Notes

Revelation 12:13-17 (11.01.19)

Revelation 12:13-17 NIV
13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 14 The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach. 15 Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. 16 But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

Do you seek to keep God’s commands and share what you have experienced and believe about Jesus honestly? If you do, then according to Revelation you’re one of Mary’s children, which makes you his sister or brother. And if you’re his brother or sister, surely God and his creation will care for you in your trials as they did Mary and Jesus!

Help me Lord to focus on being true to you and let you worry about caring for me.
