THE RED DRAGON SERMON

THE LADY AND THE DRAGON

As you read Revelation 12, it’s important to understand who the pregnant lady and the red dragon are:

  • The Pregnant Lady represents the nation of Israel. She is preparing to give birth to Jesus.
  • The Red Dragon represents Satan.

Satan was defeated in heaven, cast out by God, and has now turned his attention to us.

UNDERSTANDING THE NATURE OF SATAN

Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”

Genesis 3:1

Remember, the serpent was created by God, as was Satan. What was created is never more powerful than The Creator.

But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.

2 Corinthians 11:3

But, brothers and sisters, when we were orphaned by being separated from you for a short time (in person, not in thought), out of our intense longing we made every effort to see you. For we wanted to come to you—certainly I, Paul, did, again and again—but Satan blocked our way.

1 Thessalonians 2:17-18

The devil accuses us before God of our sins. He tries to get God to stop loving us. God’s love is not based on who we are. It’s based on who He is.

The devil accuses us of our sins, making us feel unworthy. He wants us to believe God doesn’t love us anymore. 

The devil throws obstacles in our path, especially when we step out in obedience to God, in an effort to discourage us.

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.

1 Peter 5:8

Satan will attack our character, our influence, our confidence, and our relationships. 

Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you. Wash your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

James 4:7-8
