“The Dragon Was Enraged” (Rev 12:1-17)

“Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent. So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth” (Rev 12:13-16)” (vs13-17).

The dragon is enraged against the Church, but he will not defeat her. He’s been conquered by the Lord Jesus, the Son of Man, and He’s exalted on high as the Savior of His people, the Ruler of the world, and the One who shall soon destroy Satan. Romans 16:20, says, “And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you.” Our adversary is outraged because he lost, but he cannot defeat anyone that God’s determined to save, because everything, even his hatred, works together for our good, bringing us to Christ. Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. We are TRIED, but we are helped… troubled, but we overcome by the Lamb’s blood, the power of the gospel, and we lay down our lives for Him willingly (vs11). God only cast down Satan because He rules him absolutely. Therefore, we’re troubled, but God reveals Himself as our Refuge. We are UTTERLY safe in the Lord Jesus, while enduring persecution, trials, and devilish warfare. Be utterly confident. Jesus won, and so will you. We read, “And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (vs7-9).

Many teach, “Get to know God, and life will be all smiles”, but they are wrong. The believer’s life is not easy, and faith doesn’t mean that your back won’t get beaten, your bills won’t be tight, or your children won’t be rebellious. It does NOT mean that people will love you, when they hated Christ. Demons have always opposed those who serve Christ, but when speaking to the most commended church in Revelations 2-3, He says, “Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison, that you may be tested, and you will have tribulation tend days. Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life” (Rev 2:10). He testified of Paul from the beginning, “For I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name’s sake” (Acts 9:16). If you expect a downhill stroll on the way to heaven, then difficulties will unhinge you. You will not be applauded by Satan. You’ve entered spiritual warfare, and the devil’s been cast down to wreak havoc. We read, “Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time” (Rev 12:12). Our hope is NOT in an easy life but a great God and Savior, not that we have no thorns, but that His grace is sufficient. He says, “My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Cor 12:7-10). Therefore, when tears, heart ache, and disappointment drive us to Him, we find Him ready to save, ready to ease our burden and ready to deliver (Is 38:20).

Always be wise, honor the scriptures, and reject the slick salesman’s Christ. Only a deceiver promises you success in all your ventures, and only a fool believes him. There is no luxury liner to heaven… no pillow that we may rest on while others labor… but everyone who believes will overcome because there’s no accusation against us. Christ EARNED our right to heaven, we will get there, and Satan can do nothing but taste defeat and then the Judgment. We are UTTERLY secure in Christ.
