Revelations 12

We see in our reading the drama that is played out in our lives and in the world around us. Satan (the dragon) who leads the world astray and in the process tries to take out The Savior, the church (the women), and her children (the Christians). Yet, we see that he can not defeat The Savior or the church, and even when he tries to take out the saints, he loses. For even when Satan thinks he wins when he brings about their death, they win and he losses! We need to hear the message that Jesus delivered to the saints then and now; “stand and do not back down, remain faithful even to the point of death and you win!” Yet we must never forget, that the drama is still being played out and the dragon is still out to defeat us. “Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.”
