Revelation 12:4–6 (ESV)4 …. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it. 5 She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, 6 and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days.
What’s clear from this text is the enemy had one main objective, to destroy Jesus the messiah, however in failing to do that, Satan shifts his crosshairs toward The Church. However, what will become clear to us, is no matter how much Satan wants to destroy The Church, The Church of Jesus Christ has a never-ending promise of protection and provision, and in that, we can take courage even in the most trying of times.
