Today you should read: Revelation 12

What an amazing picture we see here in today’s reading. Revelation has such incredible imagery that, in many cases, we just can’t fully understand. But today lets look at a couple of images we can understand in this chapter.

1. The red dragon, Satan, has waged war

We see his war was first started in heaven where he lost and was hurled, along with a third of the angels, down to earth. He then began his war in mankind.

2. Jesus has already won that war

We read in verse 11 that triumph has already com from the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. We win this war against the enemy because of what Jesus did on the cross.

So let’s take these two things with us today:

We are at war and it is real.

Jesus has already secured the victory.

The battle is real and casualties still happen but, for us who put our faith and trust in Jesus, we know what happens in the end.
