"Two Great Signs at War"
Revelation 12:1-6
Rev. Lou Veiga preaching
Teaching:  A long and bloody war has been fought between God and the Ancient Serpent from the beginning.
But God has exalted His Shepherd-King, who will deliver His people from all evil until the end.
  I.  God Has Given Us a Son Who Will Shepherd All Peoples.
 II.  The Great Red Dragon Will Violently Oppose Us and the Son's Rule.
III.  God Will Frustrate the Dragon's Treachery Until the End.
Conclusion:  From the beginning God promised us a Son, a Savior to all mankind, one who was to be born of His
people Israel. This Savior was to rule all nations. Satan has always opposed God's redemptive plan and fought to
defeat it, especially in anticipating the violent elimination of Jesus. But God the Father protected and vindicated
the Lord Jesus and exalted Him, through His ascension, to His very throne in heaven. God will continue to frustrate
Satan's rebellion and intrigue to the very end.
