Lesson 26

Marking Code: R
Marking Color: Black
Key Text: Revelation 12:1


  1. Revelation 12:1. The history of the Christian church is outlined in the prophecy of Revelation 12. Symbolic prophecy is used, not to mystify, but to make plain. The Bible also provides a key to unlock the meaning of the symbols used. This helps to resolve many of the perplexities about the book of Revelation.


  1. Jeremiah 6:2. God’s people-the ‘daughter of Zion”-are compared to a lovely, delicate woman. The character of the woman indicates the character of the church represented. A pure woman represents a church that is faithful to its Lord. An impure woman (Revelation 17:3-5) represents a fallen church.


2 Corinthians 11:2.


  1. Revelation 12: 2-6, 13, 14. Satan attempted to destroy the Christ child and the Early Church through Rome-in both its pagan and papal phases. Rome forced God’s remnant church into exile.


  1. Revelation 12: 15, 16. Persecution during the Dark Ages (A.D. 538-1798) was accomplished by a flood of false doctrine that nearly obliterated God’s true church. When the reformation made clear many forgotten truths, Satan relaunched his attack on God’s remnant church.


  1. Revelation 12:17. The Bible gives two identifying characteristics of God’s remnant church in the last days: It will keep God’s commandments, and it will have the testimony of Jesus.


  1. Proverbs 4:18. God wants us today to rediscover neglected truth that has been hidden so that our walk with Him will grow clearer and brighter as we follow His truth.
