I'm trying to understand the war in heaven a little better now from adding the first book of Adam and Eve to my inventory, and what happened to these 7 stars.
The Book of Enoch: Enoch's Journeys through the Earth and Sheol: Chapter XVIII
14. The angel said: 'This place is the end of heaven and earth: this has become a prison for the stars and the host of heaven.
15. And the stars which roll over the fire are they which have transgressed the commandment of the Lord in the beginning of their rising, because they did not come forth at their appointed times.
16. And He was wroth with them, and bound them till the time when their guilt should be consummated (even) âŒˆfor ten thousand yearsâŒ‰.'
The Forgotten Books of Eden: The First Book of Adam and Eve: Chapter LV
12 "Then after he had fought with God, and had dealt forwardly with Him, he gathered together his hosts, and made war with us. And if it had not been for God's strength that was with us, we could not have prevailed against him to hurl him from heaven.
13 "But when he fell from among us, there was great joy in heaven, because of his going down from us. For had he continued in heaven, nothing, not even one angel would have remained in it.
14 "But God in His mercy, drove him from among us to this dark earth; for he had become darkness itself and a worker of unrighteousness.
In Chapter 12, the great red dragon tries to kill the Male Child and after he fails, he tries to kill the woman with the 12 stars around her head....Again, he fails, so he has killed nobody, but war breaks out, and Micheal, who is the leader of them, fights the dragon with his angels, but NOT with violence. THEY USE WORDS INSTEAD, and they DIE in the process.
REV 12: 11
"And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
Here is what happened to those 7 stars: It seems like they tried to take matters into their own hands and kill the dragon with violence. For this reason, that they had transgressed the commandment of The Almighty, thou shalt not kill, they were punished. And this is what the great red dragon was doing in heaven...TEMPTING them to SIN against God.
"For had he continued in heaven, nothing, not even one angel would have remained in it."
REV 12: 10
Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, "Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.
The Forgotten Books of Eden: The First Book of Adam and Eve: Chapter XXVII
WHEN Satan, the hater of all good, saw how they continued in prayer, and how God communed with them, and comforted them, and how He had accepted their offering--Satan made an apparition.
2 He began with transforming his hosts; in his hands was a flashing fire, and they were in a great light.
3 He then placed his throne near the mouth of the cave because he could not enter into it by reason of their prayers. And he shed light into the cave, until the cave glistened over Adam and Eve; while his hosts began to sing praises.
4 And Satan did this, in order that when Adam saw the light, he should think within himself that it was a heavenly light, and that Satan's hosts were angels; and that God had sent them to watch at the cave, and to give him light in the darkness.
