I have a few verses for all of you to read and I will expand on them, hopefully, tomorrow. Try to figure out how they all relate.

Job 1:6-12:

6 Now there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan also came among them.
 7 And the LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” So Satan answered the LORD and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.”
 8 Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil?”
 9 So Satan answered the LORD and said, “Does Job fear God for nothing?
 10 “Have You not made a hedge around him, around his household, and around all that he has on every side? You have blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land.
 11 “But now, stretch out Your hand and touch all that he has, and he will surely curse You to Your face!”
 12 And the LORD said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not lay a hand on his person.” So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.

Job 2:1-7:

1 Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the LORD, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the LORD.
 2 And the LORD said to Satan, “From where do you come?” So Satan answered the LORD and said, “From going to and fro on the earth, and from walking back and forth on it.”
 3 Then the LORD said to Satan, “Have you considered My servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, one who fears God and shuns evil? And still he holds fast to his integrity, although you incited Me against him, to destroy him without cause.”
 4 So Satan answered the LORD and said, “Skin for skin! Yes, all that a man has he will give for his life.
 5 “But stretch out Your hand now, and touch his bone and his flesh, and he will surely curse You to Your face!”
 6 And the LORD said to Satan, “Behold, he is in your hand, but spare his life.”
 7 So Satan went out from the presence of the LORD, and struck Job with painful boils from the sole of his foot to the crown of his head.

Revelation 12:3-13:

3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.
 4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born.
 5 She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.
 6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
 7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,
 8 but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.
 9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
 10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.
 11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.
 12 “Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
 13 Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child.
