The scripture has not left us in darkness as to the seed of the Dragon. It has not left us not knowing who they are. And this message tonight, is not designed to particularly please anyone at all. Especially are we not desiring to please our enemy. For the enemy in the earth today is the seed of the Satanic powers who are waging war against us.
If you will turn to the 12th chapter of the book of Revelation, you will soon find the key to the hour in which we live. But in no way are the facts contained in this discussion to cause us fear, but to bring us to a complete realization as to what is taking place. Here in the book of Revelation we read the words that in the ante-deluvian times, there was a great struggle in space.
But first we are told that one of the great wonders of the heavens was the symbol of the woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. This is a part of the Revelation given to John when he was called into the timeless dimensions when he was told to ‘Come in hither.’ It was as tho a door opened in space and John walked into that dimension and traveled with the conscious knowledge of those times, backwards and forward over the patterns and courses of history. He saw and he visualized. And he heard and he experienced things which had not come to pass in his day, but which are coming to fulfillment in ours. During that period of time, and the day in which we live, many have been fulfilled prophecy.
When we talk about the Woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet,—it is clothed with Glory,—this is your race, the Household of the MOST HIGH GOD. The reason why? It says that upon her head was a crown of twelve stars, each one of these are illuminated with light and Glory. Each one of these is a symbol of the twelve tribes of the Children of Israel. The crown upon the head of the Woman is your White Christian civilization. And this is the crown of the twelve tribes of Israel. BUT–IT IS NOT TALKING ABOUT THE JEWS. There is not a Jew in the world today, who belongs to this Woman who God refers to as His bride and as in this organic body by which His children are born into the world. And as they pass thru the door of one of the twelve tribes of Israel, they make up the order of the ages and the New Jerusalem and the sovereign plan of God’s Kingdom.
We point out to you, that there stood a Great Dragon, a Red Dragon with seven heads and ten horns. And upon his head were seven crowns. His tail (tale) drew one third of the stars of heaven, and cast them to the earth. And the Dragon stood before the Woman—your race—ready to devour her child as soon as it was born. This is a symbolic message. The Woman is faced with the Dragon and the Dragon seeks to wage war against your race. It seeks to swallow up her child as soon as it is born. But you are not left in this book of Revelation to guess as to who this is, or what this represents. You say, ‘How could the Dragon draw one third of the stars of heaven?’ This is symbolic of the control of Lucifer over one third of the Milky Way in this Universe of which you are a part. And over these planets and these solar systems, he influenced these people who dwelt upon them, because he was an Archangel and they were under his control. Therefore, when he rebelled, one third of the forces of space whom he controlled, rebelled with him and were defeated by Michael the Archangel. And they were cast into the earth. These evil influences have dwelt upon the earth from that day to this. And this is one of the reasons why there is a powerful and evil force. And the scriptures denote this…
