Revelation 12 and 13

Here we see depicted the conflict between good and evil.  This battle is on-going, both global and personal. Revelation is not a study in the gray areas of moralistic choices, rather a dualistic presentation of right and wrong.  Note the dark evil forces on the left side of the picture, the light Godly forces on the right.

On earth, the battle between the beasts (evil) and the Christians (good) is fought on the Book of Life.  In heaven, we find dragons versus angels and saints.  In the midst of this battle is a mythological story of the dragon stalking a woman giving birth. Scholars say this symbolizes Mary and Jesus being protected by God, while stalked by evil.   These visions speak to the political, social, religious and personal battles of John’s time and ours.

This is a picture of the human condition. We are given warnings to let God fight our battles. We can not win the “battle” in our own strength, and no human political leader can do this either. (note the devil in sheep’s clothing) The answer is to ask for divine discernment in all matters of choice, as His children.  As believers in Christ we will be the victors: transcending this world.

“But they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they did not cling to life even in the face of death... Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints.”  Rev. 12:11 and 13:10b
