War in Heaven?

Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down–that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. (Revelation 12:7-9 NIV)

Can you imagine there being war in heaven?  It is unbelievable but that is what happened.  Isaiah 14 says pride in Lucifer’s heart caused rebellion.  God is merciful and patient.  I am sure He tried working with Lucifer but it came to a point that He had to leave.  He had been spreading lies about God to the other angels.  Revelation 12:4 says a third of the angels followed him.

How does this apply to our lives today?  When we allow rebellion to fester it affects others around us.  I worked at a place where people were unhappy with the supervisor.  Much gossip was said about him.  I am sorry to say that I got caught up in it.  Later I got to know the supervisor and the gossip was not true.  I am praying for the ability to stay out of gossip.  Spreading stories, even if they are true, does not lift up, it destroys.
