Women of a New Season: The scapegoat

Leviticus 16:21: Aaron shall lay both his hands on the head of the live goat, confess over it all the iniquities of the children of Israel, and all their transgressions, concerning all their sins, putting them on the head of the goat, and shall send it away into the wilderness by the hand of a suitable man. Have you ever felt this way? Alone, cold, full of fear, accused of things you didn’t do? Were you shoved aside by family, friends, even church people, ostracized by everyone you know? Basically, you were forced from shelter with your herd, as this little goat was, with no place to be welcomed or allowed to enter.

Revelation 12:9: The great dragon who was hurled down…that ancient serpent called the Devil or Satan, who deceives the whole world. He was hurled down to the earth and his angels with him.
