The Woman, The Child and The Dragon

A Brief Look at World History Through the Lens of Revelation 12


Prophecy demonstrates that the Bible is true and there is only one God: the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

When you finish reading it, you’ll know exactly who the woman is; and you’ll be able to identify the child and the dragon.
