Coronation Of The Blessed
Mother As Queen Of Heaven And Earth
nations were angry; and Your wrath has come. The time has come for
judging the dead, and for rewarding Your servants the prophets and
Your saints and those who reverence Your Name, both small and
great-- and for destroying those who destroy the earth." 19 Then
God's temple in Heaven was opened, and within His temple was seen
the Ark of His covenant. And there came flashes of lightning,
rumblings, peals of thunder, an earthquake and a great hailstorm.
great and wondrous sign appeared in Heaven: a Woman clothed with
the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars
on her head.
was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.
another sign appeared in Heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven
heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. 4 His
tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to
the earth. The dragon stood in front of the Woman who was about to
give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was
born. 5 She gave birth to a Son, a male child, who will
rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was
snatched up to God and to His throne.
Woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God,
where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days. 7 And
there was war in Heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the
dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost
their place in Heaven.
9 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. 10 Then I heard a loud voice in Heaven say: "Now have come
the salvation and the power and the Kingdom of our God, and the
authority of His Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who
accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down. 11 They overcame him by the Blood of the
Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their
lives so much as to shrink from death.
rejoice, you Heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to the
earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is
filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short." 13 When
the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued
the Woman who had given birth to the male child. 14 The
Woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might
fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would
be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the
serpent's reach. 15 Then from his mouth the
serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the Woman and sweep
her away with the torrent. 16 But the earth
helped the Woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river
that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 Then
the dragon was enraged at the Woman and went off to make war
against the rest of her offspring--those who obey God's
commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
