The Great Controversy
What is the great controversy in the Bible? Why is it important that Christians understand this great controversy? Does this ongoing event have an impact on our lives now or in the future?
To put it simply, the great controversy is the battle between Jesus and Satan. It is the struggle between good and evil for the hearts and minds of everyone on earth. This great controversy has been going on since the fall of Lucifer and a third of the angels from heaven that followed him as described in Revelation chapter 12.
Revelation 12:7-9, “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”
