Revelation 12:1-8
History - A Cosmic Struggle

History - A Cosmic Struggle

The New Testament sees history as moving towards a climax.  The ultimate struggle is between good and evil - ending with the triumph of good over evil, God over Satan.

Jesus is the Centrepiece

  • History is his story
  • Jesus came to establish the reign of God upon the earth

A Great and wonderful sign apeared in heaven (Revelation 12:1)

  • A woman
  • A dragon
  • A child

In closing

  • Remember Jesus died to free us from our sins
  • Remember God's past acts of intervention
  • Remember loyalty to Christ is our first priority

It is important that we are mentally prepared to face the challenges associated with living for Jesus in a hostile enviornment.
