The book of Revelation describes a fiery red dragon with seven heads and 10 horns whose tail sweeps a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to earth. The pictures describes Satan who was hurled from heaven to earth with some of the angels who had been fighting with him.
Evangelist Perry Stone sat down with Charisma magazine to talk about the seven headed dragon, which he says is actually translated into a seven headed serpent, and it’s influence on American culture as we know today.
Throughout the Bible the serpent represents Satan all the way from Genesis to Revelation. Throughout biblical times, Satan had six major empires and every one of those empires affected either the Jewish people, the temple, Israel or a combination of all of them.
“If we look at the heads of the serpent, the empires that affected Israel, the Jews in Jerusalem, we see first of all with Egypt,” Stone says. Throughout Scripture you also read of the other empires: Assyrian, Babylonian, Medes and the Persians, Greek and Roman empires.
In the book of Revelation it says there is a seventh head that will continue a “short space.” Stone says many historians believe that seventh empire will come out of one of the previous ones in Bible prophecy.
In the interview he talks about John’s vision of Satan who has the prince spirits. “Prince spirits [are] known in the New Testament (see Eph. 6 and 12) as a principality, it is a high ranking spirit, a demonic power with great authority,” Stone says.
He believes those same prince spirits are influencing our culture today. “The spirit behind each of those empires, had a particular assignment in that empire,” he says. Whether it’s division, the guise of tolerance, slander or the plethora of other issues growing in our culture today, Stone shares how these ancient spirits are affecting America and the world today.
