Revelation 12:3-4 December 16
It was that old Serpent the Devil473 who deceived our first mother in the garden of Eden487 and thus brought untold miseries onto the entire human race. Thereafter, he restlessly went forth to and fro throughout the Earth488 and proceeded to mislead nearly all individuals.
Satan misled even all the Nations489 except the True Israel within the Older Testament’s Nation of Visible Israel,490 from whose bosom the Messiah was to be born.491 And Satan misled the Nation of pagan Rome in particular. For he dragged down and debased the “Stars” or the Political Leaders there too492 in his grim attempt to destroy the Messiah at His human birth, and later again at His death.493
