the Revelation John says, "And there was war in heaven." We are accustomed
to the idea that this earth only has been in a state of rebellion; but
this scripture says that there was war in heaven.
and His angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon fought and his
angels, and prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
And the dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan,

the expression—that old serpent himself—but that ancient serpent, that
one that caused the trouble in Eden. There was war in heaven, and the old
serpent, the one that caused trouble in Eden, and is still causing trouble
here, raised the rebellion, led in the fight, and was cast down to the
