The other semeion in Revelation 12:3 reveals more biblical truth in connection with the first  semeion. 
      Revelation 12:3 reads, “Then another sign (semeion) appeared in heaven: and behold, a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads were seven diadems.”
     The identity of the Red dragon is not debated because he is clearly identified in Revelation 12:9.
     Revelation 12:9 reads, “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”
   The second semeion gives us a great deal of biblical truth about the character of Satan. First, he is described as being a red dragon. He is red because he is a murderer of the martyrs and saints down through the centuries. He is pictured as a dragon because of his viciousness and cruelty. The seven heads speak of great wisdom and the seven diadems speak of his rule and reign on the earth. He is the God of this world and the prince of the power of the air. The ten horns speak of his power over the kingdoms of this world that are under his influence.
     Revelation 12:4a gives us further spiritual biblical truth behind this second (semeion).


 Revelation 12:4a reads, “And his tail swept away a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth.”
     The stars of heaven, angels are often referred to as stars and this would indicate that when Satan rebelled, a third of the angels rebelled with him. That is why there were probably three angels created in the highest order of angelic being, called the archangel. They were of the cherubim class of angels, but three special, and that was Gabriel, Lucifer and Michael. And that they each probably had under their authority a third of the angelic host. And those that were under Lucifer's authority, when he rebelled against God, joined in his rebellion. With his tail he drew a third part of the stars of heaven.

Throughout history the spirit of the world system of Babylon would disappear at times and then reappear, like water running underground and then springing up wherever it could find an opening, preparing the way for the Antichrist’s takeover. In the Tribulation Period, the Antichrist will do as he pleases; he will trample underfoot everything he can of God, everything that looks, acts like or pertains to God.

It’s time for us to open our eyes to all false doctrine. In this hour of witches and psychics, even respected publishers are putting out books on the occult. People are intrigued with the ways of Lucifer. Drugs have drawn many into the occult. In sorcery, the use of drugs is generally accompanied by incantations and appeals to occult power. Through drugs the devil can take over the mind completely to operate the user before he knows what is really happening. Some see not only various kinds of demons, but the devil himself. They desire this experience, crave it, seek it. They ask Satan and his demons to take them over. Have no part of the occult, of witches, devils, demons no matter how innocent they seem.

   John the Revelator, looking back in time, saw the leopard first, the bear and the lion. Daniel, looking forward in time in Daniel 7  saw the same prophecy, saw the lion, the bear and then the leopard. It is exciting to discover how Bible prophecies fit together. They’re all from God. The prophets lived hundreds of years apart, and yet the information is the same because it was given by the Holy Spirit.

 Revelation 13:1-3 reads, "And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.   And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority."
