Dragon Seven Heads
(Revelation 12.4-5)
Page 173

"His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who 'will rule all the nations with an iron scepter' [or "a rod of iron."] And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne." (Revelation 12.4-5)✞

Spiritual Protection

Red DragonThe "dragon" is pictured with seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns, representing his power and the kingdoms of the world over which he rules. The stars that plunged to earth with the dragon are usually considered to be the wicked angels who fell with Satan and became his demons. The "dragon" is the symbol of all the forces of evil upon the earth.✞

Christ's Ascension

Child Chased by DragonRevelation 12.5 describes how "Her child was snatched up to God" and is probably a reference to Christ's ascension. The woman found a place of spiritual protection from the dragon in the desert which was the traditional place of refuge for the afflicted. Because God aided the woman's escape, we can be sure that he offers security to all true believers. God keeps each one of his own spiritually secure.✞
