Milepost 33: The War in Heaven and The Last Woe

Primary References: Revelation 12:7-12

 

Satan's attack on Jesus starts a war in heaven between Michael and his angels and the dragon and his angels. Michael and his angels win a decisive victory and permanently cast the dragon and his angels out of heaven, exiling them down to earth. Many Christians are surprised to find out that Satan is in heaven today. They are even more surprised to learn that Satan not only has free access to heaven during the tribulation but also witnesses Jesus' coronation and two of the believer's judgments. His access to both heaven and the throne of God are consistent with the rest of scripture. Job 1:6-9 shows Satan in heaven accusing Job before God. He has clearly accused all righteous people before God just as he did with Job. Apparently, he never sleeps, accusing them day and night. Consumed with his hatred of God's people, he apparently never rests in his pursuit of their destruction. Those whom he accused overcome him by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus), their testimony, and their willingness to sacrifice all, including their lives, for the Lamb.

When Michael casts them out of heaven, everyone in heaven rejoices greatly as a loud voice proclaims that all of those living in heaven should rejoice. The same voice proclaims that four things have now come: salvation, strength, the kingdom of God, and the power of Christ. This declaration underscores a dramatic change in God's actions toward his enemy and humanity. The days of God's longsuffering are over (2 Peter 3:9-10).

The voice finishes by proclaiming the start of third and final woe, Satan's expulsion to earth. It is a woe because Satan's anger is greater than ever and he is motivated to take revenge while he still has time left. He is also well aware from scripture that he has three and a half years left and is no longer able to leave earth but must remain here waiting for the true King's return and His ultimate judgment. Now, the sole remaining outlets for his wrath are the persecution of God's people and the damnation of people's souls to hell and the lake of fire. For the rest of the great tribulation, no one on earth is safe from his wrath.
