Bible: Revelation 12:7-11

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,

and the ruling authority 9  of his Christ, 10  have now come,

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.
