Q. What is meant by the war in heaven between Michael and the Devil?
A. "As has just been given, as is understood by those here, there is first - as in the spiritual concept - the spiritual rebellion, before it takes mental form. This warring is illustrated there by the war between the Lord of the Way (Archangel Michael) and the Lord of the Darkness (Satan) - or the Lord of Rebellion." [Cayce 281-27]
