In this vision, the woman is Israel. (Rev.12:1, 2) who gives birth to Christ. (Rev.12:5) The Dragon (Satan, who carries a third of the angels of Heaven with him when he is cast out of Heaven. Rev.12:7-9) is ready to devour Christ. (Herod’s decree to slaughter all children under two years of age in Bethlehem; plus Crucifixion event) The child was snatched up to God (resurrected) and the woman fled into the desert. (Israel into dispersion)
Timeline: Satan was cast out of Heaven with his angels before or shortly after creation.
My opinion: The woman (Israel) was protected by a great Eagle, (USA) out of the reach of the serpent. The serpent spewed water like a river to overtake the woman. (Holocaust) but the earth helped the woman (WWII). This enraged the Dragon and he proceeded to make war against the offspring of the woman… (Christians) …who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.”
