Bible: Rev. 12:7-12; 20:1-3
War in Heaven
12:7 Then 1 war broke out in heaven: Michael 2 and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 12:8 But 3 the dragon was not strong enough to prevail, 4 so there was no longer any place left 5 in heaven for him and his angels. 6 12:9 So 7 that huge dragon – the ancient serpent, the one called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world – was thrown down to the earth, and his angels along with him. 12:10 Then 8 I heard a loud voice in heaven saying,
“The salvation and the power
and the kingdom of our God,
because the accuser of our brothers and sisters, 11
the one who accuses them day and night 12 before our God,
has been thrown down.
12:11 But 13 they overcame him
by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony,
and they did not love their lives 14 so much that they were afraid to die.
12:12 Therefore you heavens rejoice, and all who reside in them!
But 15 woe to the earth and the sea
because the devil has come down to you!
He 16 is filled with terrible anger,
for he knows that he only has a little time!”
Abraham and Abimelech
20:1 Abraham journeyed from there to the Negev 1 region and settled between Kadesh and Shur. While he lived as a temporary resident 2 in Gerar, 20:2 Abraham said about his wife Sarah, “She is my sister.” So Abimelech, king of Gerar, sent for Sarah and took her.
