the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war
with the rest of her offspring, who keep
the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. Revelation
As we discussed earlier, Jesus was born from the
12 tribes of Israel (the household of God).
Those of the household of God (now both Jews and
Gentiles) who "keep the commandments of God"
and also "hold to the testimony of Jesus" are
the new target for the dragon. At the end of
Chapter 12, we see Satan (the dragon) going off to
make war with these followers of Christ.
