Two of Apostle Paul's Epistles are addressed to Timothy "his beloved son". We must always keep these kinds of things in mind as we study the Word. One of the most important things to observe is context of scripture! Just as Paul emphasizes to Timothy make sure to "rightly divide" the word of truth! This definitely applies to you and I, for we must not apply the Word to the wrong people !  Some written word is for the multitudes, however, most is for chosen believers who are pressing for the mark of the high calling, and will search for Truth out of a hungry heart. Casual Christians interpret things not even pertaining to them and this is why there are so many false interpretations flooding the Earth !

     One such example is in the writings of the book of Revelation. "And the serpent cast out of his mouth waters as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood"(Rev.12:15). This serpent has developed many different ways to deceive the whole world if it was possible!  It's important to note two things here "his mouth" and "a flood". This should be a "heads-up" for God's people, his mouth does the damage. Truth is; the mouths he uses are the mouths of false teachers (wolves in sheep's clothing)! "Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices"(IICor.2:11). This is why our final and great teacher is  The Spirit Of Truth! Satan's devices are half truths, lies and accusations from the accuser of the brethren. All these devices must be filtered through the Holy Ghost, who is righteousness, peace, and joy. If we will do this in sincerity, uncertainty gives way the peaceful fruit of Heaven's Truth.

     Out of the serpent's mouth came water as a flood chasing the woman. Remember this is written in symbolism so the mouth infers "words" and the flood infers a tremendous overwhelming amount!  I have seen first hand the power and swiftness of a flood, it's destruction has been compared to a war zone! The scripture says: the "carnal mind" is enmity of the Spirit. From men's carnal mind comes an onslaught of untruth, lies from pulpits, deceiving self-help books, and also Christian Television. Men of God from other countries are even warning their people beware of American Christian Television! Casual Christians have under-estimated the power of the "serpent's flood". Serpents are slippery, and if we look close we'll see the serpent did not want to destroy or to kill the woman, he wanted to sweep her away from the place "prepared for her by God". Away from the presence of God we truly are "fair game" for the serpent!

     Here's the revelation: "And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place ..."(Rev.12:14)  These two wings save the woman! She can now rise above the flood. Without the wings ( which represent movement in the Spirit) she could not stay ahead of the flood. Just as people without the Spirit of Truth are vulnerable to the flood of deception. The "two wings" in symbolism represent what's needed to overcome the "serpent's flood". Two represents the number of witness, we can say they represent Spirit and Truth. It takes both to have absolute Truth!  We could also say they are "revelation and relationship" We can surely dwell in the "secret place" of the Most High and have a wonderful relationship of Peace. "That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: "( Eph.1:17)
