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
Remember, the serpent was created by God, as was Satan. What was created is never more powerful than The Creator.
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.
Satan will attack our character, our influence, our confidence, and our relationships.
