Michael Fighting the Dragon by Albrecht Durer, 1498.

Michael Fighting the Dragon by Albrecht Durer, 1498.

“And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.  And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.  And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.

And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.  And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 12:13-17).

This is an interesting passage of Scripture which provides an overview of the actions of the Serpent once he is cast out of the heavens to the Earth.

Many Bible scholars interpret the woman in this passage as the nation of Israel. This is because the same symbolism is found in Genesis 37:9-11 where the sun and the moon refer to the parents of Joseph, Jacob and Rachel, and the eleven stars refer to the eleven brothers of Joseph.

“And he (Joseph) dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me” (Genesis 37:9).

Furthermore, notice that the woman brings forth a man-child “who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron” (Rev.12:5). This is a parallel passage to chapter 19, which details the actual return of the Messiah, Jesus Christ, who came from Israel through Mary; and when He returns He will smite the nations in judgment and “rule them with a rod of iron” (Rev. 19:15).

Once the Serpent, who is if course the fallen Cherub Satan, is cast out of the heavens to the Earth, he begins a campaign of persecution against the people of God, the remnant of Israel.

John, the writer of Revelation uses the imagery of a flood, which comes from the mouth of the Serpent. While it is difficult to tell whether this is an actual flood of water sent against the nation, or just the imagery of persecution,  it appears from the text that something will happen and the earth itself will open up to “swallow’ the flood of persecution. This action provokes the anger of the Serpent and he goes forth to continue his persecution of the remaining remnant of the seed of the woman.

While Christians are not Israel, Christians are of the seed, which is Jesus Christ.

  • Romans 1:3: Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh…”
  • Romans 9:8: That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these are not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed.
  • Galatians 3:16: Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
  • Galatians 3:29: And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.

The gospel saves both Jews and Gentiles without discrimination (Romans 1:16). All that God is looking for is faith in the finished work of Christ–the cross, for forgiveness of sin. He “died for our sins” (1 Cor. 15: 3), “and was raised again (from the dead) for our justification” (Romans 4:25).

With all that said, when the Serpent saw that the woman was saved from his initial flood of evil and persecution, he set his sights on the next target: Bible believing Christians.

“And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ” (Revelation 12:17).

Please understand, and do not take lightly where the Scriptures say that the Serpent “went to make war” with the saints. The Antichrist will also “make war” with the saints as well.

 “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them…” (Rev. 13:7a).

This is the power of the spirit of antichrist. It is now in the world (1 John 2:18), and once prophecy begins to play the spirit of antichrist will go forth with all the power of Satan; and it will break loose against the nation of Israel, Bible Christians, and ultimately the rest of the world.

I am afraid that many Christians do not understand these prophecies regarding persecution, especially Christians in the United States. Most are taught that they will be “raptured out of here” before these things take place; and most of them are woefully unprepared for persecution.

The book of Revelation is filled with examples of Christians dying for their faith during the Great Tribulation. As you can see, according to the book of Revelation they are still in the world and will suffer extreme persecution during this time from the hands of the Serpent and the Antichrist:

  • Rev. 6:9:  And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held.
  • Rev. 7: 9,13-14:  After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands…. And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?  And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 
  • Rev. 14:12-13: Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.  And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.
  • Rev.12:11: And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
  • Rev.13:7: And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.
  • Rev.17:6: And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration.
  • Daniel 7:21: I beheld, and the same horn made war with the saints, and prevailed against them…
  • Rev.20: 4: And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

If this were to happen today are you ready for the flood of evil persecution that will come from the mouth of the Serpent once he is cast from the heavens? If not, place your faith in Jesus Christ–He died for you, and arose from the dead so that you could be forgiven and cleansed from sin. Don’t delay, now is the day of salvation.
