New American Standard Version of the BibleAnd 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 12:17 (NAS)

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.
