To understand a story it’s necessary to know who the main characters are and how they relate to the plot. The same is true for the story of history. In Revelation 12 Christ, Satan, and the People of God serve as the main characters. And, the plot is what God has done to silence our accuser.
The good news that through Jesus, God has done everything necessary to make us acceptable to Him, wields great power. Because it is the opinion of God it transcends all other opinions, and as we begin to understand that, it transforms us. This is the story of the Apostle Paul and can be our story as well.
