“The Red Dragon”
Original Mixed Media, 29" x 19"
Revelation 12 speaks of a woman clothed with the sun and moon under her feet giving birth to a small boy who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. There waiting was a red dragon waiting to devour the child. A war breaks out in heaven pitting Michael and his angels against the dragon. When the battle comes to an end a loud voice from heaven was heard saying, “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.”
This scripture gives us a glimpse of what our true struggle is against. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” (Ephesians 6:12) It also gives us a glimpse of God’s power even when the odds seem stacked in the enemies’ favor. In Him all things hold together. He will finish the work He started.
