Who Is the Tyrannosaurus Rex-Like Enemy of the Church?

Revelation 12 shows a vicious dragon who will stop at nothing to destroy God’s people. Who is that dragon? We do not have to guess, “So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him” (Revelation 12:9).
The one you read of in Genesis 3, the one who tempted Eve and introduced sin and death into the world, the one who relentlessly attacked Job, the one who controls the thinking of the people of the world, it is the old deceiver, the devil himself, the old adversary known as Satan.
As vicious as Revelation 12 shows the dragon to be, yet, the woman, God’s people, have more power. Do not fear what the dragon tries to do to you through his agents in the world, because you have the Lord God and Jesus Christ on your side.
