The Woman and the Dragon
A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. 4 His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
7 And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. 8 But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. 9 The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.
10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
“Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God,
and the authority of his Christ.
For the accuser of our brothers,
who accuses them before our God day and night,
has been hurled down.
They overcame him
by the blood of the Lamb
and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
as to shrink from death.
Therefore rejoice, you heavens
and you who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea,
because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury,
because he knows that his time is short.”
13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the desert, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach. Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring—those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.(Video) IMMACULATE SUN HEAVEN I AM The WOMAN Clothed In(Of) The SUN - 2017
1,260 days is 3 1/2 years. A time (1 year), times (2 years) and half a time = 3 1/2 years.
This passage tells us that at some point the woman will flee into the desert for 3 1/2 years.
Who is the woman? Will this passage speaks first about Joseph, Mary and Jesus' flight to Egypt for 3 1/2 years.
Side note: Interesting that Jesus spent 3 1/2 years in exile, 3 1/2 years in public ministry and 28 years in the public spotlight. 7 x 4 = 28. Symmetry and beauty.
Also Virgo is the woman constellation. The fertility constellation.
A woman in labor, a dragon bent on infanticide and a ruler of the nations. We have already seen this ruler in the Book of Genesis, above. This would be the Messiah, in his role as King of Kings. If that interpretation is correct, then according to the gospel story the woman would be Mary, the mother of Jesus. The dragon which waits to kill the child at birth would be Herod, who did that very thing. John says the woman he saw was clothed in the Sun. She had the moon at her feet. What can he be describing? When we continue our study of the sky of September of 3 BC, the mystery of John's vision is unlocked: he is describing more of the starry dance which began with the Jewish New Year.
As Jupiter was beginning the coronation of Regulus, another startling symbol rose in the sky. The constellation which rises in the east behind Leo is Virgo, The Virgin. When Jupiter and Regulus were first meeting, she rose clothed in the Sun. And as John said, the moon was at her feet. It was a new moon, symbolically birthed at the feet of The Virgin.
The sheer concentration of symbolism in the stars at this moment is remarkable. These things could certainly lead our magus to conclude that a Jewish king had been born. But even this is not the whole story. These symbols could indicate a birth, but if they were interpreted to indicate the time of conception, the beginning of a human life, might there be something interesting in the sky nine months later? Indeed. In June of 2 BC, Jupiter continued the pageantry.
Jesus' first arrival was heralded with the star Regulus (King star), Jupiter (the King planet), Virgo (the Queen/Fertility/Birth constellation) aligned and the moon was at the feet of Virgo (the mother). These combined to make the brightest object ever seen - The Star of Bethlehem.
Revelation 12 told of the Star of Bethlehem and perhaps it will announce the arrival of Messiah once more.
In Scotty's Eternal Rhythm Flow video he tells us up another upcoming alignment, when twelve stars (the constellation Virgo) will be in coronation above Virgo, the moon will be in her feet, in broad daylight (clothed in the Sun).
Rosh Hashannah 2017. September 20th through 22nd.
So what do we know about 3 1/2 years and what do we know about fleeing into the desert?
He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”
Well we know that in the middle of the 7 year tribulation that the sacrifices and offerings in the new temple will be cutoff. The antichrist (AC) will set up the abomination that causes desoloation (AOD).
Reminiscent of Antiochus IV (Epiphanes) of the Greek Seleucids who responded to Jewish insurrection by leaving Egypt and coming to ransack Israel and defile the temple with a pig sacrifice and a pig blood. The restoration andre dedicationof the temple is calledHanukkah.
“So when you see standing in the holy place ‘the abomination that causes desolation,’ spoken of through the prophet Daniel—let the reader understand— then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let no one on the roof of his house go down to take anything out of the house. Let no one in the field go back to get his cloak. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath. For then there will be great distress, unequaled from the beginning of the world until now—and never to be equaled again.
We read about another flight from Judea. The one that comes when the AOD repeats the defilement of the temple and the worst judgments of all are released on the earth.
From these verses we can conclude that Revelation 12 not only spoke about Christ's flight from Herod, but also prophecies the exodus at the midpoint of the tribulation.
If Scotty's right at the next alignment of the stars that appear in Judea, align with prophecy and occur on one of the Jewish high days, in Rosh 2017, then count back 3 1/2 years and what do you find - triumphal entry Sunday April 13th, 2014.
Easter is Sunday April 20th, 2014.
From Sunday October 21st, 2012 until Sunday April 13th, 2014 = 77 weeks.
We also know Israel was born by U.N. vote on November 29th, 1947. Fast forward to September 23rd, 2017 and you have 70 years. On a 360 days Hebrew calendar it is closer to 71.
“Know and understand this: From the issuing of the decree to restore and rebuild Jerusalem until the Anointed One, the ruler, comes, there will be seven ‘sevens,’ and sixty-two ‘sevens.’ It will be rebuilt with streets and a trench, but in times of trouble. After the sixty-two ‘sevens,’ the Anointed One will be cut off and will have nothing. The people of the ruler who will come will destroy the city and the sanctuary. The end will come like a flood: War will continue until the end, and desolations have been decreed. He will confirm a covenant with many for one ‘seven.’ In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on a wing of the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation, until the end that is decreed is poured out on him.”
From the time that the regular sacrifice is abolished and the abomination of desolation is set up, there will be 1,290 days. How blessed is he who keeps waiting and attains to the 1,335 days!
62 + 7 + 1 = 70.
3 1/2 years after this - it is Easter Sunday April 4th 2021, Christ returns to reign - Zech 14. (Acts 1:1-11), Gog / Magog, Ezekiel 38 and 39, Revelation 19-20.
1000 years later Armageddon.
The great white throne judgment. (the day of atonement)
Revelation 21 - New Heaven and New Earth (feast of tabernacles fulfilled).
Who know maybe he's right.
Regardless we're close.
I don't quite get Dan 12:11-12 and this would make the rapture in the spring and I've always thought a fall feast of harvest, first fruits, rosh made the most sense.
