THE MISSION OF SATAN, (the dragon of Rev.12), having been cast out of heaven, along with a third of the angels who rebelled with him, is to destroy Jesus, the Child who was born of Israel, (the Woman of Rev.12). Satan knew that if he could destroy Jesus, mankind would be without any hope, and easily destroyed. The plot of Herod to kill the baby boys born in Bethlehem was one of Satan’s attempts. The temptation of Jesus to convince Him to avoid the Cross, was also a part of Satan’s war on mankind. But that old dragon was defeated when Jesus died and was “caught up to God and His throne,” and our salvation was secured, praise God! We are more than conquerors over sin and death because of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.
