Q. Thank you so very much for all the great work you do, I’ve learned so much from you.  I see the church in heaven in Rev. 4:4 as the elders clothed in white robes, then we see the church coming with Jesus in Rev.19:14.  My question for you is, do I see the church in heaven in Rev. 12:10-12 also? It sure looks like the church to me.

 

A.  Rev. 12:10-12 can be viewed as a reference to everyone who overcame the influence of the devil through their faith in Jesus. This would include the Church as well as post rapture martyrs, since the timing of Rev. 12 is the middle of Daniel’s 70th Week.  Rev. 12:12 indicates the people being told to rejoice that the devil has been hurled down are in Heaven, but woe to those on Earth because the devil is about to come down and indwell the anti-Christ to kick off the Great Tribulation.
