The images of Satan being a ghastly dragon in the End Times is sobering, but we must always remember...he is a created being.  This means that he is not equal to nor does he pose a threat to Almighty God.

So, as I discuss him briefly here, don't take a stance of fear.  We are victorious over him through our Savior, Jesus Christ!

The Devil's Role in the End Times

It may surprise you to learn that our arch enemy's role is mostly backstage in the End Times.  We see the dragon in numerous places in the book of Revelation and chapter 13 shows my point.

Revelation 13:1,2

"And the dragon [Satan] stood on the sand of the seashore.  Then I saw a beast [Antichrist] coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. 2 And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority."

Note that the dragon here gives his authority to the beast.  He has a kingdom of darkness and he does have power and authority.  But just as the beast derives his power and authority from the dragon, so the dragon derived his from God...

Colossians 1:16,17

"For by Him [Jesus Christ] all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities [including the kingdom of darkness (they once were a part of the Kingdom of Light when they were given their authority)...it is subject to Christ] —all things have been created through Him and for Him. 17 He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together."

The dragon's power is limited...God's is limitless (omnipotent).

The dragon's authority is restricted...God's is ultimate.

Satan's Attempt at Harming God

The dragon is the leader of the powers of darkness, but his authority has been given to him.  He has a finite amount and has to share it with the Antichrist and then he goes into hiding so to speak.

The Antichrist is his puppet as they try to destroy God's people once again.  They can't harm God Himself, so they try to strike the apple of His eye.

The dragon (and possibly you) thinks he gains a victory when we are killed.  If God does choose to take me or my family at the hand of Antichrist one day then that is how I was designed to go...to live is Christ, to die is gain.  Instantly I will be with my Savior.  Then I will come with Him at His Second Coming and watch the King of kings send the dragon to his doom.

The Dragon's Doom

As you study Armageddon in my book you will note that the leader of the kingdom of darkness is conspicuously absent.  He watches as the Antichrist and False Prophet go to their doom.

The dragon is then bound for the Millennium...again behind (or under) the scene.

After the Millennium he is let loose for one final battle which he miserably loses (ah, did you think Armageddon was the last battle?...not true.)  He is then cast into the lake of fire never to be heard from again.




His doom is sure.
