Revelation 12:9 Isn’t Talking About The Planet

 In Rev 12:9 the Greek word for the words “whole world” is referring to the Roman world, it is not referring to the planet. The devil, satan in Revelation is Rome, not a fallen angel.

The English New Testament comes from the Greek New Testament, if the English translation doesn’t agree with the Greek, then the English Translation isn’t the truth.

There are many places in the English Bible where words have not been translated correctly, and because of that wrong translation, many people have been led to believe things that are false, that is the case with Is. 9:6, Matt. 24:21, Titus 2:13 & Rev. 12:9.

In Rev 12:9 the Greek word for the words “whole world” is referring to the Roman world, it is not referring to the planet, when that is understood, Rev 12 and the rest of Revelation makes sense, because Rev 1:1 and Rev 4:1 make it very clear that Revelation is written about things that happen after Christ was resurrected, which means nothing in Rev 12 is about before the creation of man, or about before Christ was born.

Everything in Rev 12 is about things that happened after Christ was resurrected.

To say, Rev 12 talks about things that happened before the creation of man is to contradict the truth that Rev 1:1 and Rev 4:1 speak, the Bible doesn’t contradict itself.

So, the reader must understand that Rev 12:9 is talking about Rome deceiving the Roman world, for the rest of Revelation to make sense.

Rome was the devil (false accuser) and satan (adversary) of God’s church. Rome was a deceiver like the serpent was in the book of Genesis, that is why in Rev 12:9 & Rev 20:2, the devil (Rome) is called “that old serpent.”

Rev. 1:1  [This is] the revelation of Yeshua the Messiah [his unveiling of the divine mysteries]. God gave it to him to disclose {and} make known to his bond servants certain things which must shortly {and} speedily come to pass in their entirety.

Rev. 4:1  After this I looked, and behold, a door standing open in heaven! And the first voice which I had heard addressing me like [the calling of] a war trumpet said, Come up here, and I will show you what must take place in the future.

In Rev 12:3, the dragon is Rome & in Rev 12:9 the dragon (Rome) deceives the whole Roman world, in Rev the dragon also known as satan, the devil is Rome, not a fallen angel, therefore in Rev 20:10, Rome is thrown into the lake of fire, not a fallen angel.

Since the Bible makes it very clear that there is no sin in heaven, the word “heaven” in Rev 12:3 is not talking about the “heavens” the place where God dwells. In Greek the word “heaven” in Rev 12:3 is singular, if the word were plural in the Greek text, then Rev 12:3 would be talking about the place where God dwells, in the Greek New Testament, the place where God dwells is called “the heavens”, not “heaven”.

The word “heaven” in Rev 12:3 is talking about the sky, just as the word “heaven” in Luke 10:18 is by talking about the sky.

Rev 12:3  Then another ominous sign (wonder) was seen in heaven [in the sky]: Behold, a huge, fiery-red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and seven kingly crowns (diadems) upon his heads [Rome].

Rev. 12:9  And the great dragon [Rome] was cast out, that old serpent, called the devil [false accuser], and satan [adversary], which deceiveth the whole world [oikoumene – the Roman world], he was cast out to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Rev 20:10  Then the devil [Rome] who had led them astray [deceiving and seducing them] was hurled into the fiery lake of burning brimstone, where the beast [the Roman Empire] and false prophet were; and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever (through the ages of the ages).

Revelation is a description of what happens before the destruction of Jerusalem, a description of the destruction of Jerusalem, a description of the day of the Lord, and  a description of the world of righteousness that is written about in 2 Peter 3:13.

The day of the Lord is the Lord’s judgement upon the ungodly people, that judgement happened after Jerusalem was destroyed (Matt 24:29-30),  the ungodly people that are spoken about in 2 Pet 3:7 that will be destroyed by fire, are the people that are thrown in the lake of fire in Rev 21:8.

2 Pet 3:7 isn’t about the planet being destroyed by fire, it’s about people being destroyed by fire, after the nations (heathen world) destroyed Jerusalem, the ungodly people were destroyed by fire.

2 Peter 3:7  But by the same word the present heavens and earth [the world system] have been stored up (reserved) for fire, being kept until the day of judgment and destruction of the ungodly people.

Rev 21:8  But as for the cowards {and} the ignoble {and} the contemptible {and} the cravenly lacking in courage {and} the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd {and} adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)–[all of these shall have] their part in the lake that blazes with fire and brimstone. This is the second death.

2 Pet 3:13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth [a new world system], wherein dwelleth righteousness.

In 2 Peter 3:13 the word “we” is referring to, whomever the author of 2 Pet is writing to at the time, the word “we” is not referring to anyone else. It is said that the book of 2 Peter was written around 60AD, Jerusalem was destroyed in 70AD.

In Rev 21:1-2, John is writing about what the author of 2 Pet wrote in 2 Pet 3:13.

Rev 21:1  Then I saw a new sky (heaven) and a new earth [a new world new system], for the former sky and the former earth [the old world system] had passed away (vanished), and there no longer existed any sea.

Rev 22:2  And I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, all arrayed like a bride beautified {and} adorned for her husband;

Everything in the book of Revelation was to happen quickly, Rev 1:1, Rev 1:3, Rev 22:10 & Rev 22:20 confirm that truth, therefore everything in Revelation has already happened.

Revelation is a description of what happens before the destruction of Jerusalem, a description of the destruction of Jerusalem (the tribulation), a description of the day of the Lord, and finally a description of the new world system wherein dwelleth righteousness that is written about in 2 Peter 3:13.

The teaching that says, “Revelation is about our time period” is false.
The teaching that says, “the tribulation is still to come” is false.
The teaching that says, “the day of the Lord is still to come” is false.

Rev 22:10  And he [the angel] [further] told me, Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book {and} make no secret of them, for the time when things are brought to a crisis {and} the period of their fulfillment is near.

Rev 22:18  I [personally solemnly] warn everyone who listens to the statements of the prophecy [the predictions and the consolations and admonitions pertaining to them] in this book: If anyone shall add anything to them, God will add {and} lay upon him the plagues (the afflictions and the calamities) that are recorded {and} described in this book.

Rev 22:19  And if anyone cancels {or} takes away from the statements of the book of this prophecy [these predictions relating to Christ’s kingdom and its speedy triumph, together with the consolations and admonitions or warnings pertaining to them], God will cancel {and} take away from him his share in the book of life and in the city of holiness (purity and hallowedness), which are described {and} promised in this book.

Rev 22:20  He Who gives this warning {and} affirms {and} testifies to these things says, Yes (it is true). [Surely] I am coming quickly (swiftly, speedily). Amen (so let it be)! Yes, come, Lord Yeshua!

Rev 1:3  Blessed (happy, to be envied) is the man who reads aloud [in the seven churches] the word of this prophecy; and blessed (happy, to be envied) are those who hear [it read] and who keep themselves true to the things which are written in it [heeding them and laying them to heart], for the time [for them to be fulfilled] is near.

Matt 24:21 talks about the tribulation, the tribulation happened when Jerusalem was destroyed, both Matt 24:21 & Rev 12:9 are talking about the Roman world, here is a link to my post about Matt 24:21 & Rev 12:9https://bornfromabove7.wordpress.com/2014/09/17/matt-24-isnt-about-the-end-of-the-planet/
