The Dragon Slayer

In Revelation 12 we are introduced to three characters: a pregnant woman, a male child and a fierce dragon. While the dragon attempts to devour the child, the child is miraculously caught up to the throne of God. In typical apocalyptic language the Apostle John presents the gospel message and the defeat of Satan. Jesus is the dragon slayer and we overcome the enemy today through the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. This portrait of Jesus as victor puts all of our current struggles into perspective and provides strategies for us as we face temptations, condemnation, evil and injustice in our world today.
