More on that later in the program but now let's get started with today's teaching here is Alan writing. He came to die in your place. He came to fulfill the prophecy that the Lord had given to the serpent when he told the serpent you will strike his heel.

But you crush your head, and this very thing that the devil and lived in fear for all of the centuries and centuries trying to discern who wasn't. It came to this point moment in time in which Jesus is arrested in the trade is arrested, given bogus trial and is taken to a Roman cross and is mailed there and as he bleeds and suffocates. It has every appearance that the Dragon has one that the serpent has struck and in a very real sense, the serpent did strike. It was like the fangs of evil had gone into the heel of the Savior of the world and injected a poison that poison you could think of was it being reckoned by God as if the sun had become your sin in my disco start to explain what the Bible means is that he who knew no sin became our sin that we might become as righteous as is like like the whole poison of curse came in to Jesus so that we would no longer take it and and and all of hell's rejoicing and demons are feasting on the moment of the son of God who was suffocated on the cross and crying out my God my God why beepers they can meet and get in those moments, the miracle of salvation is taking place and we are told elsewhere description in Scripture that that was I there was a scene in the heavenly's and which God through the cross was making a public spectacle of demon's because in the moment that it looked like hell had one. Instead what was happening was the great cosmic victory of God in Jesus Christ was taking place because in the very willingness of Christ to so love you and so love this world that he took sin into himself and died the death in our place because of the vastness of that love and the mystery of God's gospel plan.

Anyone who trusts in Christ is utterly forgiven and justice has taken place. So the accuser that Satan's name who is like a prosecutor in the heavenly court room was always accusing night and day before the people of God.

Lucy seems like in Job where Satan is there, as if it's a heavenly courtroom and he's bringing his accusation and essentially he's saying he essentially saying is a prosecutor God. You have to keep your word and you said those it disobey will be killed.

Those that the wages of sin is death, you said there must be punishment and he brings before the book the throne of God to the judge he brings before Ida's case after case God's saying and then Christ comes and takes the penalty so that it would be unjust for two people to pay for the same crime, so that if you're in Christ. All of a sudden you're declared not guilty.

The case is thrown out, and there's no more standing for the devil to even be there who can bring a charge against God's elect. Paul said hello could possibly condemn us when crisis died for us and rains for us and intercedes for us. I'm convinced were more than conquerors through Christ because you see something shifted in the whole cosmic structure of things and the prosecutor had no place in the courtroom and is thrown out. The case is thrown out it's over it's done. That's where we are where we are now verse 12. Therefore all rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them, but whoa oh earth and see for the devils come down to you in great wrath, because he knows his time short. This is explained so much.

Essentially, here's this boy, rejoice, rejoice in heaven rejoice every Christian have joy over and over again.

Don't let the devil ever steal your joy, but also be aware what the word means your be forewarned, do not be ignorant of this. This Dragon when he lost in the courtroom of heaven.

In his anger has come and is exerting great wrath on the earth.

When this Dragon verse 13 side been thrown down, he pursued the woman who is that the people of God who'd given birth so be aware of it. Verse 14 but the woman says this is a magnificent image that he saying, but the woman, the people God was given to wings the two wings of a great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness. Imagine John is having this vision. One image after the other, Dragon a big tail, 1/3 of the stars come out. A woman crying out in travail, but she got a crown on her head and a great battle between angels and the heaven, but he realizes that the angels of God are stronger and Michael is leading the angelic army and it wins and then there's something that happens in shifts in the cosmic courtroom and and then he sees this Dragon coming to start pursuing the woman and the woman all of a sudden is if has wings and soar like any call that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness to the place where she is to be nourished for a time and times and half a time, which is another apocalyptic way of saying 3 1/2 years. It is an image from Exodus from the story of how God took people out of slavery by the Passover and then took a nurse them through the wilderness. Exodus 19 for you yourselves have seen what I did to the Egyptians, the Lord said and how I bore you on eagles wings, and brought you to myself. We had another Exodus.

We've had a greater liberation. The true liberation of God through Jesus Christ and and it is as though as you wait upon the Lord and hope upon him you mount up with wings as eagles we are the ones who can take shelter and healing under his wings because it is the ultimate expression of the cherubim on the ark of the covenant in the holy of holies that goldplated mercy seat were cherubim wings are over it and there the blood of the Passover lamb was wrinkled and there on the day of atonement. It was that the people were recovered in their sin, we are safe because we have come under the wings of God we we rise up and are carried out into a place that God has prepared here in this earth, we are we are in the world but not of the world and he has for us true manna.

The manna which is Jesus Christ, the bread of life that comes to us and nourishes us in talent right will have more teaching moment from today's important series is in misty place when you float around on clouds and plaque angelic higher-ups you're in for the surprise of your life.

Revelation 1215 the serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, to sweep her away with a flood, but the earth came to help the woman in the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river that the dragon had poured forth from his mouth than the dragon became furious with the woman. This is explaining why there's a spiritual battle today.

This is explaining what we face the dragon became furious with the woman that's the people God and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring on those who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. I stood on the sand of the sea, so in hatred of God, the serpent pursues the people of God and pouring out of this image like a flood out of his mouth to try to consume the people God in Revelation whatever comes out of the mouth symbolizes words that are spoken. Remember earlier on we saw the image of Jesus and of the sword, a double-edged sharp sword that came out of his mouth are minors. The word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword, but what seen here is a flood which symbolizes devastation and what's coming out of the Dragon's mouth is a river of lies. It is the primary weapon of hell towards the people of God towards anyone makes you think of all the different floods of deception that have tried to come upon humanity over the many centuries. Ever since Christianity all of the all of the isms that arose early on Gnosticism and Pelagianism Arianism and anything that could come against the uniqueness of the deity of Jesus Christ and the promises of the gospel power rose up such religious heresies and legalism. Various waves over time that competed with the gospel in and then how in more recent times, religious liberalism that has disputed the reliability of God's word. How we live in a day of moral relativism, in which there is a lie that says there's no real right or wrong, just do your own thing and live your own truths and and lie after lie that comes to us individually to just understand this is the nature of the spiritual battle is that the devil wants to lie wants to spew forth a flood of lies toward you and the more that we believe the lies, the more lies will keep coming towards us and build one upon the other, like a house of deceptive thoughts that becomes a stronghold lies want to tell you to question whether your child of God.

Liza want to tell you whether your life really matters lies. I want to tell you that you cannot overcome past sin lies and want to make you question whether life is worth living lies that make you want to start judging rather than loving others so that you would destroy your relationships.

I'm saying this is not pretty to talk about, but there is an enemy and he is pure evil and pure hatred, and all he wants to do is ruin your life and ruin the world because he hates God and therefore he hates the people who love God and that's the battle that you're in and it's a battle for the fault life primarily a flood of lies. This revelation comes to say to the people of God, do not despair.

Look again here in verse 16 but the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river that the Dragon had poured from his mouth again, echoing Exodus because after God opened up the Red Sea and then swallowed up Pharaoh's army. Remember that they came to the other side of the Red Sea and they began to seeing the celebration song. I will sing unto the Lord for he has triumphed gloriously the horse and rider thrown into the sea and then come to this verse 15 verse 12 of Exodus 15 you stretched out your right hand and the earth swallow them. This is the image of the better Passover of the of the work of God in Jesus Christ that has swallowed up the lies of the enemy truth swallows deception and lights swallows darkness, so that is gone.

If it was as soon as a truth comes in. The lie is exposed the lie loses all of its power. Do not be afraid child of God, though there is a Dragon whose tail swinging wildly throughout the cosmos, and has hurt many is an expression of pure evil. You are like this woman in travail crown and there is though a fury against the people of God, you are safe, and is given you wings and is giving you the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony and love for God. That's greater than anything else. It is like saying that God brought to the people of God in the first century what he is bringing to us to and that is to show as vividly where we stand and where the devil stands because they give us confidence. I was thinking about how years ago 2003 I read some interviews of Iraqi national athletes who were beginning to speak out because Saddam Hussein had been overthrown and yet he was not captured and I remember citizens talking in Iraq because they they wanted to begin to proclaim their freedom.

They wanted to build a talk about the atrocities they suffered. They want to go to speak the truth, but they're also afraid because though their tyrant had been overthrown did not yet been captured. Saddam Hussein was a tyrant to oppressed Iraq for over 30 years.

He had over 20 palaces he had meals prepared as if it were for him, and every palace every day you so fearful of semi-finding out which policy was in Vista.

Keep up the guys of being there ordered in lobster flown in and other delicacies. It had a taste for Portuguese wine though in public. He pretended not to drink in order look like a faithful Muslim.

He is 1988.

He brought together several hundred Baathist leaders and forced one of them to confess that he been part of a scheme to overtake the government and they drag the man out and killed him and and and Hussein came to the podium and and and for a good show. He began to cry and begin listing out a list calling out names of people accused of treason every now and he would stop in light up a cigar and then I assembled a ad hoc firing squad shot 21 of those men, the authoritative biographer of Hussein has estimated that that number grew in 500 during that particularly dark purging spectacle. This is the way he carried out his leadership. One time a just rained down poisonous gas on 5000 of his own citizen in a northern Kurdish village because he called them disloyal brought his sons up in violence and witness to torture and hard. No wonder that one day to day, the eldest son beat Saddam's food taster to death and from scores of partygoers was that kind of family 2003, the military been weekend and his own military was lying to him about their strength and in March of that year, the US engaged in huge missile strikes and in April they invaded Baghdad.

April 9 was the last public siding of Saddam but he started hiding in 30 different places around and nobody knew where he was but he keeps sending out messages by messengers and he would he would he would terrorize still so the people knew that their tyrant was overthrown, but he had not been captured, tried or executed so they don't know how confident they could be in their freedom, and the more that you know the one who's terrorized you has actually been overthrown. The more you can quit worrying about it the more you can exercise your freedom in December of that year 2003 US military found Saddam in a hole. The 6 foot hole underneath the house not far from his hometown Iraqi government tried him and executed him. We live in in between time alone that we live in a time in which our tyrant the overpressure the accuser that accuses has been thrown out of the courtroom in heaven has been thrown down, along with all of the demons has been has been effectively defeated and and yet hides in every kind of place to try to deceive still and to wage war still and to terrorize still and what God wants us to know and this is the purpose of revelation is that Christ's victory is sure and that you who are in Christ, can count on that victory and that anyone that wants to have that assurance simply accept Christ and his saving work because what happens is that you you though persecuted in this world. And though we may face some very difficult times you have been given as it is wings from God and nourishment in the desert 10 sustaining grace no matter what it is that you go through so in other words, be well nourished on the word of God and the blood of the Lamb is the reminder that it's Jesus finish work, not yours that matters. And the word of their testimony is the affirmation with your own mouth of what God has done for you in Jesus Christ and to love, not your life even unto death, is to say that there's no idle that comes into your life because when you love God more than anything. Then there is no hold. The devil can get on you so there's your formula for the spiritual battle you have and are overcoming by the by the Lamb, the word your testimony about loving God more than anything else. Those those first century Christians were there, ready to receive a word when it finally got opened up the pastor did not say were going to have a symposium on end times theology. Instead he said apocalypses see Jesus Christos the revelation of Jesus Christ. Blessed is the one who reads aloud these prophecies, and blessed is the one who hears it, because this is a vision of Jesus and this is a vision of the victory that is yours in him. That's what revelations about what Revelation 12 is about and that is the gospel Allen right or good news message today from this series the revelation by its defeat of the Dragon passed around his back joining the studio shearing is parting the new stuff for the day.

Pastor Alan you can go check the back of the book and winning temperature nervous about this is going to turn out. I've heard the quote that the Dragon is defeated but his tail still swishing so it's a defeated foe and yet the fury of hell against God and the people of God is great.

One day that will all end, Jesus returns for the time being, were still in a spiritual battle but is not a battle that we are at risk of losing instead what God wants us to know is we can be assured of the defeat of Satan and that we are already raining with Christ, so that's very powerful thing. Take away eyes. Love was Vance have to think you said I'm glad to have a Bible that begins and ends with the devil out of business.
