And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The word above rendered “dragon” is from the Greek word drakon, said to probably be from the Greek word derkomai, meaning to see or look, in the sense of becoming fascinated. The word (drakon) only appears in book of Revelation (thirteen times), all as John reveals to us that the dragon is the serpent, who is called the Devil and Satan (from the Hebrew word satan, telling us he is opposing and resisting the word and work of the LORD God Almighty). Drakon appears to more likely be derived from the Hebrew word dakar, meaning to walk, an origin by which we understand the dragon as a serpent rising up and walking like a man (and men are fascinated by it).

We are told in Revelation 13 that a beast (Babylon – confusion) rises up from among the people (the sea), which has seven heads (ruling over all the church: God’s people) and ten horns (all civil governments of the world), and the dragon gave him his power (to ill advise and mislead into hell). Just before this he is described as like a leopard (camouflage to lurk and sneak up on prey), and having feet like a bear (to trample down, tear apart, and destroy), and a mouth like a lion (a mouth devouring the prey – by words).

Friends, earlier in Revelation 12 we are told this is the same dragon who led a third of God’s people in their fall from heaven, meaning from their fixed positions, steadfast by their understanding, into no longer depending on and trusting God’s sound advice, and thereby into confusion. These are the firsts, the leaders who joined in an open rebellion against God and opposing His truth; instead, they relied on, and teach others to rely on, their false doctrines and follow them into hell.

Later, in Revelation 16, John describes the coming of understanding, as first the waters of the river Euphrates are dried up, which represent the means through which have flowed the waters of confusion (bad advice, and death lurking below the surface unseen) to all the world, that by this the way of the kings of the east might be prepared – understood. We know these kings are the Magi, the Chaldeans: wise men who degenerated into using their words to manipulate and control people, and now, by this means, rule over all the world. John then tells us of the unfolding picture (uncovering – revealing) as these men are first seen as serpents (the dragons), then as the beast (confusion – Babylon), and are those who, ultimately, are clearly understood as false prophets.

Revelation 16
12 And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates; and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared.
13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs come out of the mouth [as words opposing God and leading the rebellion against Him] of the dragon, and out of the mouth [as words of confusion] of the beast, and out of the mouth [telling of what never will never come] of the false prophet.
14 For they are the spirits of devils [FOR THEY ARE SPIRITS in men, in kings – misleaders leading into hell], working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.
15 Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame.
16 And he gathered them together into a place called in the Hebrew tongue Armageddon [the mount of this rendezvous – appointed time and place of God’s Righteous Judgment on the earth].

When we remove the words, the misleading bad advice, that has clouded the minds of all God’s people, leading a third to actively oppose and resist God, and then put the others into a state of sleep and death, we then in spirit and truth clearly see, understand, this is the culmination of the fall that started in the garden, by listening to those then only seen as a serpent.

John tell us these are spirits of devils, demons drawing and leading men into hell, the result of the words coming from their mouths, now becoming seen as defiling spirits (degenerate minds denying reality/truth and creating confusion), seen as frog are seen when the waters of the muddied rivers are stopped/dried up.

Friends, it is the nature of man to not understand the magnitude of the moment they are living in and through, which in most cases hasn’t and can’t be comprehended until the fullness appears later in the effect. I tell you now we are living through these days. Now is when evil has taken full control of all the world’s information, denying absolute realities, even the distinction that men are men and women are women, and denying human conception creates a human. The only ways these demons confuse the world is by hate-filled demonization and ridicule, creating prejudice against all who refuse to agree and join. They silence truth and disregard any reality that contradicts their delusions and their effect of the society at large. They have become so blinded by the darkness, into which their own progressive extremism has led them, that within it they feel their evil and hate have won. In this self-confirming echo chamber, they now openly and pridefully flaunt their primitive (tribal) hatred and their ignorant ideas, feeling none will dare stand against their power to destroy men’s lives. It is the culmination, the end, when death is so swelled with pride, as the swelling of Jordan, and people act as if there is nothing wrong or abnormal about killing and consuming their infant children.

LORD, I pray that You open the eyes of Your people, so they will understand.

2 Kings 6
17 And Elisha [Salvation of God] prayed, and said, LORD, I pray you, open his eyes, that he may see. And the LORD opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.
18 And when they came down to him, Elisha prayed unto the LORD, and said, Smite this people, I pray you, with blindness. And he smote them with blindness according to the word of Elisha.
19 And Elisha said unto them, This is not the way, neither is this the city: follow me, and I will bring you to the man whom you seek. But he led them to Samaria [the place where the people had set up idols in God’s place, among those whose eyes need to be opened].
20 And it came to pass, when they were come into Samaria, that Elisha said, LORD, open the eyes of these men, that they may see. And the LORD opened their eyes, and they saw; and, behold, they were in the midst of Samaria.
21 And the king of Israel said unto Elisha, when he saw them, “My father, shall I smite them? shall I smite them?”
22 And he [Elisha – Salvation of God] answered, You shall not smite them: would you smite those whom you have taken captive with your sword and with your bow? set bread and water before them, that they may eat and drink, and go to their master.
23 And he prepared great provision for them: and when they had eaten and drunk, he sent them away, and they went to their master. So the bands of Syria [those who have exalted themselves above God] came no more into the land of Israel.
24 And it came to pass after this, that Benhadad [son of the false gods, idols/ideas, that ruled over them] king of Syria gathered all his host, and went up, and besieged Samaria.
25 And there was a great famine in Samaria: and, behold, they besieged it, until an donkey’s head was sold for fourscore pieces of silver, and the fourth part of a cab of dove’s dung for five pieces of silver. [Because they had turned completely to idols, there was a famine for hearing the true word of God, by which man lives.]
26 And as the king of Israel was passing by upon the wall, there cried a woman unto him, saying, Help, my LORD, O king.
27 And he said, If the LORD do not help you, whence shall I help you? out of the barn-floor, or out of the winepress?
28 And the king said unto her, What ails you? And she answered, [she didn’t want food, rather she wanted help to find and eat another women’s child, because they had already eaten hers] This woman [who is a pattern of an abortionist] said unto me, Give your son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow.
29 So we boiled my son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give your son, that we may eat him: and she has hid her son.
30 And it came to pass, when the king heard the words of the woman, that he rent his clothes; and he passed by upon the wall, and the people looked, and, behold, he had sackcloth within upon his flesh.
31 Then he said, God do so and more also to me, if the head of Elisha the son of Shaphat [the son of Him whose Righteous Judgment has come upon us] shall stand on him this day.
32 But Elisha sat in his house, and the elders sat with him; and the king sent a man from before him: but ere the messenger came to him, he said to the elders, See you how this son of a murderer has sent to take away mine head? look, when the messenger comes, shut the door, and hold him fast at the door: is not the sound of his master’s feet behind him?
33 And while he yet talked with them, behold, the messenger came down unto him: and he said, Behold, this evil is of the LORD; what should I wait for the LORD any longer?

2 Kings 7
1 Then Elisha said, Hear you the word of the LORD; Thus says the LORD, To morrow about this time shall a measure of fine flour be sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, in the gate of Samaria.
2 Then a lord on whose hand [the false prophets in whose advice they trusted] the king leaned answered the man of God, and said, Behold, if the LORD would make windows in heaven, might this thing be? And he said, Behold, you shall see it with your eyes, but shall not eat thereof.
3 And there were four leprous men at the entering in of the gate: and they said one to another, Why sit we here until we die?
4 If we say, We will enter into the city, then the famine is in the city, and we shall die there: and if we sit still here, we die also. Now therefore come, and let us fall unto the host of the Syrians: if they save us alive, we shall live; and if they kill us, we shall but die.
5 And they rose up in the twilight, to go unto the camp of the Syrians: and when they were come to the uttermost part of the camp of Syria, behold, there was no man there.
6 For the LORD had made the host of the Syrians to hear a noise of chariots, and a noise of horses, even the noise of a great host: and they said one to another, Lo, the king of Israel has hired against us the kings of the Hittites, and the kings of the Egyptians, to come upon us. [They heard the same army God showed in 2 Kings 6:17, but had no idea who or what it was.]
7 Wherefore they arose and fled in the twilight, and left their tents, and their horses, and their donkeys, even the camp as it was, and fled for their life.
8 And when these lepers came to the uttermost part of the camp, they went into one tent, and did eat and drink, and carried thence silver, and gold, and raiment, and went and hid it; and came again, and entered into another tent, and carried thence also, and went and hid it. [see 2 Corinthians 3 & 4 below – only hid from those whose mind have been blinded by the gods of the world, the defiled spirits now at working in the children of disobedience. We who see, see the unseen/what is hidden.]
9 Then they said one to another, We do not well: this day is a day of good tidings, and we hold our peace: if we tarry till the morning light, some mischief will come upon us: now therefore come, that we may go and tell the king’s household.
10 So they came and called unto the porter of the city: and they told them, saying, We came to the camp of the Syrians, and, behold, there was no man there, neither voice of man, but horses tied, and donkeys tied, and the tents as they were.
11 And he called the porters; and they told it to the king’s house within.
12 And the king arose in the night, and said unto his servants, I will now shew you what the Syrians have done to us. They know that we be hungry; therefore are they gone out of the camp to hide themselves in the field, saying, When they come out of the city, we shall catch them alive, and get into the city.
13 And one of his servants answered and said, Let some take, I pray you, five of the horses that remain, which are left in the city, (behold, they are as all the multitude of Israel that are left in it: behold, I say, they are even as all the multitude of the Israelites that are consumed:) and let us send and see.
14 They took therefore two chariot horses; and the king sent after the host of the Syrians, saying, Go and see.
15 And they went after them unto Jordan: and, lo, all the way was full of garments and vessels, which the Syrians had cast away in their haste. And the messengers returned, and told the king.
16 And the people went out, and spoiled the tents of the Syrians. So a measure of fine flour was sold for a shekel, and two measures of barley for a shekel, according to the word of the LORD.
17 And the king appointed the lord [the false prophets] on whose hand he leaned to have the charge of the gate: and the people trampled upon him in the gate, and he died, as the man of God had said, who spoke when the king came down to him.
18 And it came to pass as the man of God had spoken to the king, saying, Two measures of barley for a shekel, and a measure of fine flour for a shekel, shall be to morrow about this time in the gate of Samaria:
19 And that LORD answered the man of God, and said, Now, behold, if the LORD should make windows in heaven, might such a thing be? And he said, Behold, you shall see it with your eyes, but shall not eat thereof.
20 And so it fell out unto him: for the people trampled upon him in the gate, and he died.

2 Corinthians 3
9 For if the ministration of condemnation be glory [showed God’s presence], much more does the ministration of righteousness exceeds in glory.
10 For even that which was made glorious had no glory in this respect, by reason of the glory that excels.
11 For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which [NOW, after condemnation has been done away with] remains is glorious. [John 3: 17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. 18 He that believes on him is not condemned: but he that believes not is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. 19 And this is the condemnation [the choice], that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. 20 For every one that does evil hates the light {understanding}, neither comes to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. 21 But he that does truth comes to the light [to understanding], that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God.]
12 Seeing then that we have such hope, we use great plainness of speech:
13 And not as Moses, which put a veil over his face [so the glory of God, His presence in him, couldn’t be seen], that the children of Israel could not steadfastly look to the end of that which is abolished:
14 But their minds were blinded: for until this day remains the same vail untaken away in the reading of the old testament; which vail is done away in Christ.
15 But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the vail is upon their heart.
16 Nevertheless when it shall turn to the LORD [when the understanding comes, that God is in man, as Christ, in this way reconciling the world to Himself by preaching this word of truth and teaching that leads into understanding – the light], the vail shall be taken away.
17 Now the LORD is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the LORD is, there is liberty.
18 But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the LORD, are changed into the same image [Christ formed in us] from [His presence seen and heard] glory to [receiving it and the same] glory [is formed in us], even as by the Spirit of the LORD.

2 Corinthians 4
1 Therefore seeing we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we faint not;
2 But have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the word of God deceitfully; but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
3 But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:
4 In whom the god of this world has blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.
5 For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the LORD; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.
8 We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the LORD Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
11 For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
12 So then death works in us, but life in you.
13 We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak;
14 Knowing that he which raised up the LORD Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.
15 For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God.
16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.
17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Psalms 72
1 Give the king your judgments, O God, and your righteousness unto the king’s son.
2 He shall judge your people with righteousness, and your poor with judgment.
3 The mountains shall bring peace to the people, and the little hills, by righteousness.
4 He shall judge the poor of the people, he shall save the children of the needy, and shall break in pieces the oppressor.
5 They shall fear you as long as the sun and moon endure, throughout all generations.
6 He shall come down like rain upon the mown grass: as showers that water the earth.
7 In his days shall the righteous flourish; and abundance of peace so long as the moon endures.
8 He shall have dominion also from sea to sea, and from the river unto the ends of the earth.
9 They that dwell in the wilderness shall bow before him; and his enemies shall lick the dust.
10 The kings of Tarshish and of the isles shall bring presents: the kings of Sheba and Seba shall offer gifts.
11 Yea, all kings shall fall down before him: all nations shall serve him.
12 For he shall deliver the needy when he cries; the poor also, and him that has no helper.
13 He shall spare the poor and needy, and shall save the souls of the needy.
14 He shall redeem their soul from deceit and violence: and precious shall their blood be in his sight.
15 And he shall live, and to him shall be given of the gold of Sheba: prayer also shall be made for him continually; and daily shall he be praised.
16 There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
17 His name shall endure for ever: his name shall be continued as long as the sun: and men shall be blessed in him: all nations shall call him blessed.
18 Blessed be the LORD God, the God of Israel, who only does wondrous things.
19 And blessed be his glorious name for ever: and let the whole earth be filled with his glory; Amen, and Amen.
20 The prayers of David the son of Jesse are ended.
