Revelation 12:4, “…and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.” Who is our greatest threat? It is not Syria, it is not Iran, it is not the terrorists, it is the great, red dragon mentioned here in Revelation twelve. The dragon is the devil. Satan is like a roaring lion who wants to devour us. The interpretation of this passage refers to Israel and Christ. The women that is mentioned is the nation of Israel. The child that is ready to be delivered is none other than the Lord Jesus Christ. Ever since the moment he was born in Bethlehem, Satan has tried to destroy him. Thankfully, Jesus has triumphed and on the cross he defeated the devil once for all. Yet there is an application here that needs mentioned. Notice that the dragon wanted to devour the child. May I say that the devil still wants to devour the children. He is perverted and wicked and yet he knows that children become adults. If he can devour them when they are little, then he will have their hearts when they are grown. In light of this truth, we must guard our kids and beg God to help us fight against the devil. He is our greatest threat.
