Satan is real. So what do we do? Study with us a Biblical perspective on Satan and how to stand firm in battle through Jesus Christ. Learn from Peter’s experience with Jesus, and be encouraged in sound wisdom as we read through some practical tools to resist the defeated devil.
The characters in this eventful chapter include a woman in labor, a dragon, a beast and Michael the archangel. The symbolism is rich as we learn about the fate of our enemy, the accuser, and the future of the nation of Israel.
Revelation 8 taught us that the seventh seal consisted of seven angels with seven trumpets. We covered the first four last week, but then things change gears. While the first four trumpets dealt with earthly, cataclysmic events, tonight we look at the fifth, which is more demonic in nature as evil is unleashed on the earth.
In Revelation 5, a drama begins to unfold in heaven. John sees a scroll and is distraught over the fact that no one is able to open it. Then the Lamb appears. Our focus tonight is on our Messiah, our Redeemer, the One who is worthy to open the scroll and its seals.
At one time, Satan was in heaven worshiping the Lord. However, his pride ultimately led to his downfall. We can learn from Satan’s example of what not to do. What does this mean to us? We read in 1 John 4:4 “greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”
