Chapter 2: Creation
   In the Beginning
      64. What was the War in Heaven?

{64.1} Q. The Book of Revelation speaks of a "war. .. in heaven" (Rv 12:7). What could have caused a war in heaven?

{64.2} A. The war was caused by angels who, under the leadership of the angel we now call "Satan," rebelled against God. The Book of Revelation tells us Michael and his angels defeated the dragon [Satan] and his angels so "there was no longer any place for them in heaven. The huge dragon, the ancient serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan, who deceived the whole world, was thrown down to earth, and its angels were thrown down with it" (12:8-9).
