The tail of the dragon is false ministries (Rev.12:4)
So when we read that .. “ the dragon ….and his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth” (Rev. 12:3-4). What does the dragon-tail symbolize?
We know that the stars of heaven stands for the sons of God..God promised Abraham that his sons shall be as the stars of Heaven,, The eleven stars that bowed down to Joseph were his eleven brothers., who were actually the stars , the sons of Jacob that Lucifer, the very king of Babylon wanted to rule over (Isa.14:13) even as we do know that “the sides of the North” to which he wanted to ascent to is Moutn Zion, the city of the living God, the church.(Ps 48:1-2) Jesus Himself is the bright morning star. No room to explain of Isa 14 here.(But you can request for our message on JUST WHO IS LUCIFER.?
So what is the tail of the dragon that caused the stars to fall? It’s right there in the scriptures for us.
“The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail. For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed”.(Isa 9:15-16.)
The word teacheth, here is very important .. yarah, yaw-raw’ a primitive root; to flow as water (i.e. to rain), to lay or throw (especially an arrow, i.e. to shoot); to point out (as if by aiming the finger), shoot,
Interesting, what we are seeing here is the unceasing flow of the false prophetic ministries aim at the sons of God in the making, to get them off course. As through these ministries/teachings, other thoughts will begin to arise in their heart as touching who they are and what they can now do even though it’s not yet time as allotted by the father to do such. They are promising things that could make them assume power in no time and do a lot of miracles as well outside of the mandate of the father
Again, we see Jesus the firstborn son being tempted in this regard..Math.4: 8 “Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me”
The fact beloved is, there is no mountain in the whole world that you can climb and see the entire world talk less of being in Palestine. The highest that I know of, is Mount Everest and it’s not in Palestine. So which mountain is this that the devil took him to? It was the mountain of his own imagination.
Yes, that is the only mountain you can climb and assume and see anything. That tells you that the real devil is working from within the hearts of men. To be on the mountain top is to be in total dominion, here the thought was you can now rule the world because the father just said to you, you are his only begotten son. But what needs to be done first like going to the cross has not been done. So the overcoming ability here was Jesus mastering his thoughts to wait and come to the obedience of the cross and the rule over the universal was and is rightly his. This is what Adam and Eve could not endure, they became gods in the flesh. We cannot assume full sonship in a presumption manner .
The tail of the dragon therefore is nothing more than false ministries that teach things that prevents and turns us away from attaining to the place of full sonship in God. When men begin to teach you and proclaim that sonship is not attainable or that you have already attained to all that the father has for his sons, the dragon tail is at work.
While it is true that as many as believe, the father gave power to become the sons of God (John1:12-13) The fullness of Christ sonship was made manifest only after resurrection..
“Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh; And declared to be the Son of God with power, according to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead” (Rom.1:3-4) Therefore “…but ourselves also, which have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body” Rom.8:23.
Friends, the trouble we are facing today is not about Grace not being available, but how to be focused in God to attain to the place of full sonship with dominion on the face of the Earth. The birthing of the cooperate man-child that can shepherd the nations with the rod of iron is the problem.
And this is what the dragon doesn’t want so we are immersed in one form of religious deception or the other through the tail of the dragon. But the fathers will shall prevailed; He shall yet have a son. For in the “.. evening time it shall be light”. Zech.14:7.
