I too love Zech v.3, 'Return to me and I will return to you'. I love it! How faithful God is!!! when we stray, He never hesitates to take us back...and not condemingly, but lovingly! His mercy and forgivness are truely beyond human comprehension. How many times has He welcomed me back with open arms (as the prodigal son's father) and just bestows his love on me!

Rev is fascinating! The "woman" is not an actual woman but represents Israel...through which Christ came. Israel is often protrayed as a woman in that she is protrayed in the Old Testament as God's wife.... and also as a pregnant woman because of the constant suffering of the nation.

v. 7 is fascinating!!! War broke out in heaven. there has always been warfare since satan's fall...but here's what my study Bible says: "Something will intensify this warfare-possibly the raptured saints passing through the realm of the prince of the power of the air (cf.Eph 2:2)"

Wow!!! Woohoo! Not a happy day for those on earth tho..but those who standfast in their faith will be rewarded in eternity!
In reference to your blog...yes indeed, every day is a battle! As a younger believer I didnt see this much but now I see every single day...I need God's strength and NO WAY can I go at it alone! I tried in the past...haha, my strength is a joke...i have no strength. Every day is a new attack from the enemy...we must be prepared!--through prayer, God's word, memorized scripture, obedience and TRUST that God will protect us. He will! he does! Every day I need to ask for God's protection (from the enemy)....otherwise, I'm in for it!

speaking of...cant wait to get to the part in Rev. where satan is slam dunked in the abyss, haha! he's such a jerk!

Revelation: Both commentaries above are good studies about Spiritual Warfare. Two gems, I pulled out are:

In Revelation 12:1-17, we will learn the simple principle that we must “know our enemy.” If we fail to know and understand our enemy, we’ll fall prey to his surprise attacks and lose many earthly battles. Keith Krell

In Ephesians 6:11-12 we are told: “Put on the full armor of God, that you may be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

Am loving the illustrations by Pat Marvenko!
