Enter the Dragon

The world has changed I feel it in the air, for what once was is lost; the sound of war, a war in every respect different from before that will continue to the last and final battle.

The watchmen on the wall from the strong tower sees a large winged creature flying from a distance toward the castle fortress walls. On the ground was an army of men as far as the eye could see. 

The trumpet sounded to alert those in the tower of the approaching armies of war. (Revelation 8:6) The men in the castle were few compared the approaching masses ahead of them. I heard one man say to another watchmen on the tower wall,

“I wish it need not have happened in my time,” and this echoes the feelings of most of us as a darkness looms across the earth. “So do I,” comes the answer, “and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us. There are other forces at work in this world beside that of evil”

My heart trembles before the ensuing battle.  My bowels, my bowels! I am pained at my very heart; my heart makes a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because of what I have heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. Destruction upon destruction is cried; for the whole land is spoiled: How long shall I see the standard, and hear the sound of the trumpet?Jeremiah 4:19-21 Be not far from me, my LORD: Oh my strength, haste to help me. Deliver my soul from the sword; my darling from the power of the dog. Save me from the dragon’s mouth: for thou hast heard me from the horns of the unicorns. Ps 22:19-21

A dark voice whispered from a far ‘the world of men will fall.’

The dragon came from a distance and as it landed a magnificent being materialised (Revelation 13:4) in front of the moated castle. His form was beautiful with feet of fire and hair as white as snow and a melodious voice. 

The tower had been under siege (Revelation 13:17) and now this majestic being claimed to have come to liberate the occupants. He has the image of a King but what say those who wait for the Lord of this castle? All within are in want of clothes, food and water, peace and safety. Could this possiblly be the return of the King they have waited for?

The watchmen sound the trumpets of war, a warning of the approaching armies, each trumpet identifying a new type of attack. 

Angels flying through the heavens before the approach of the army have sent messages of warning, the last woe concerns the coming of the dragon. WOE, WOE, WOE is the message…(Revelation 8:13) woe to the inhabitant of the earth for the dragon has come down to you having great wroth seeking whom he may devour.

The fortress is the words of the King that has been erected to keep the inhabitants safe from a strong delusion. (Proverbs 18:10) This majestic serpent would devour them in a moment should they turn their backs to him, should they be dazzled by him changing into human form and presenting himself as their saviour.

In this small allegory lies the an important illustration what Revelation’s warnings are about. 

The dragon-like spirit will arouse and reveal itself soon enough, and in all its dragon character, against those who keep the commandments of God and have the faith of Jesus. Since the 2016 US election we are on the precipice of this becoming reality. Under the banner of the dragon there are men who doing all n their power to plunge the world into commercial strife and war. Thus the dragon is trying to bring about a condition of things that will make the world uncivilized.

Everyone who fights on the side of right, must fight hand to hand with the enemy.  Our foes are within and without. Perils are not always clearly discerned. {14MR 294} The woman representing the church, the bride of Christ is established on the Old and New Testament represented as a pure woman standing on the moon and clothed with the sun in Revelat

ion 12:1.  The church of Christ was to be represented and defended by men trained as knights in His service by the King’s son who was to become a King in His own right. His words were ‘so send I you!’ The restoration of man from the defilement from common place to the courts of the palace must be thorough and complete by adornment of armor fit the warfare with the dragon. The dragon by the way has very bad breath.

After a while a small dark cloud appeared from the east. Some men in the castle had left the strong tower, they were under the spell of apollyon who had dressed in what appeared to be the prince’s apparel. The chameleon spoke words of ease and comfort which drew some by his flattery, then by his messengers he sent threats and these threats were to starve the inhabitants inside. All were hungry and thirty, many left their post while others remained loyal. Ten spies had spied out the land and you know the story, eight said we must surrender for the army is vast and they be as giants in the land. These were traitors. Two who remained loyal said we are more than able to over take them. One being Caleb whose faith in God was such that he feared not man. He saw behind the mist the army that was coming at midnight and there were more that be for thee than against thee.There were a few men on the plain of dura of whom Caleb was one leader who refused to bow his knee to the image of the son of man yet was not the son of man. To stand in defense of truth and righteousness when the majority forsake us, to fight the battles of the Lord when champions are few–this will be our test. At this time we must gather warmth from the coldness of others, courage from their cowardice, and loyalty from their treason.–5T 136 (1882). {LDE 180.4}  

The cloud now appeared brilliant and a King dressed in white and flaming fire rides a horse and with Him an army. The army is ten thousand times ten thousand. The flaming sword that proceeded from his mouth destroyed with fire the armies that surrounded the castle. Within in the castle those penantent praying ones seeking deliverance now see their deliverer. 

Revelation  19:11 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him [was] called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. 19:12 His eyes [were] as a flame of fire, and on his head [were] many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. 19:13 And he [was] clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.
