The Clue To The Identity Of The Woman In Revelation 12 Is Found All The Way Back In Genesis 37

Monday, May 15, 2017 21:25
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

(Before It's News)

The moon represents Joseph’s mother, Rachel. And the “11 stars” are Joseph’s brothers with Joseph himself being the 12th “star”.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Revelation 12:1-3 (KJV)

For starters, the Church is removed from the Earth in the Rapture before the start of the time of Jacob’s trouble. Why? Because it is Jacob’s trouble – Israel’s trouble – and the Church has no business being there so we are called up and away. We see this blessed event taking place, in type, in Revelation 4:1,2 (KJV). But lately for some reason, I have been seeing videos and reading article about Revelation 12 and the Church. So I thought it would be edifying to take a moment and visit with “the woman” of Revelation 12.

If you are a Catholic, you have undoubtedly taught that this “woman” is Mary giving birth to the baby Jesus. If you are a Laodicean with a “new version” of the Bible, you’ve likely been taught that the “woman” is the Church. But this brief study compare scripture with scripture to show you that the woman of Revelation 12 is exactly who the Bible says she is. The nation of Israel in the time of Jacob’s trouble.

For starters, this “woman” is wearing some mighty unique attire

Clothed with the sun, a crown of stars (12, mind you), and standing upon the moon. As a child in Catholic school, I constantly saw illustrations of the “virgin” Mary adorned like that. So to most Catholics, this sure sounds like Mary, right? Wrong. Do you remember where we have read a passage like that before? It’s all the way back in Genesis.

“And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? And his brethren envied him; but his father observed the saying.” Genesis 37:9-11 (KJV)

Ahhh, yes, the dream of Joseph that got him in hot water. And what do we see here? We see the very same sun, moon and stars from Revelation 12, and this passage give us their identity. As you read the verses in Genesis, you see instantly that the sun represents Joseph’s father, Jacob. The moon represents Joseph’s mother, Rachel. And the “11 stars” are Joseph’s brothers with Joseph himself being the 12th “star”. This band of brothers are the 12 tribes of Israel. So the sun, moon and stars” are the entire family of Jacob, are they not? Indeed they are, so let’s ask a really obvious question now.

Who is the woman in Revelation 12? According the Genesis 37, the woman is none other than the nation of Israel. It is ludicrous to suggest that the woman is Mary, just as it is equally implausible to suggest the woman is the Church. While it’s true that Jesus came out of Mary, it is equally true and perhaps more so that He came out of the tribe of Judah which is part of national Israel. As far as this woman being the Church, it is Jesus who birthed the Church and not the other way around. The Church no where is referred to as a “woman”. It is called a virgin and a bride, but never a woman.

Going a little further, it is Jesus who will rule with a “rod of iron”, and it was Jesus in Acts who was “caught up to God” while the apostles watched. More than that, Paul never tells us Christians that we are “of Mary”, but that we are the “seed of Abraham”.

“Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Galatians 3:16,29 (KJV)

Israel is told to run for their lives, literally

Lastly, we know exactly who is driven out into the wilderness in Revelation 12 because in Matthew 24 where the same event is recorded, Jesus tells us who the woman is. And it is absolutely not Mary or the Church.

“When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains:” Matthew 24:15,16 (KJV)

The people who are “in Judea” are the remnant of national Israel who have not taken the Mark of the Beast, and Jesus commands them to literally run for their lives. They do run, right to the red rock city of Selah Petra where God miraculously protects and feeds them there for ” a thousand two hundred and threescore days”, or three and one half years.

The great red dragon of Revelation 12 is Leviathan from Job 40

And what about the dragon “casting a flood” out of his mouth to try and drown Israel? Certainly you remember our old friend Leviathan from the book of Job, right? The same guy whom you were falsely told was a “dinosaur” is none other than the Devil, and the book of Job is a picture of the Jew in the time of Jacob’s trouble.

“Behold, he drinketh up a river, and hasteth not: he trusteth that he can draw up Jordan into his mouth.” Job 40:23 (KJV)

When the Bible says that he “drinketh up a river”, it is directly referencing Revelation 12:15 (KJV). See  how it is all coming together, and everywhere you look it is referencing Israel.

By the time all this takes place, the Church will have already been safely in Heaven for three and a half years. We will be watching “from the balcony” as the nation of Israel flees from Antichrist and hides out in Selah Petra.

Now you know who the woman is. It’s the nation of Israel. What part of Revelation 12 is the Church involved with? None of it.

Not a single, solitary, tiny little bit.

    Hey apostate, here is a VERY big clue by Jesus Himself:

    John 2: 3-5 “And the wine failing, the mother of Jesus saith to him: They have no wine. And Jesus saith to her: WOMAN, what is that to me and to thee? My hour is not yet come. His mother saith to the waiters: Whatsoever he shall say to you, do ye.”

    123’s of true Christianity v popular & damnable heresies
    (simply because you “confess” it does not mean you actually are, the devil has deceived many of his own children to believe they are Christians 2Tim 3:5)
    #1 “ONE” not triune: THE ANTI CHRIST….WHERE? WHERE?….EVERYWHERE!!! …..IT”S YOU O TRINITARIAN!

    “WHO” it was (what person) that came “IN THE FLESH”, IS THE DETERMINING FACTOR IN WHAT IT MEANS TO BE “ANT-CHRIST”! Even Islam claims Jesus was the Jewish messiah/Christ who was to come in the flesh) they all deny “WHO” it was (what person) that came (to be the Christ) in the flesh!?!…….To deny the father is to deny the son because they are one and the same person that came in the flesh! https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/part-6-anti-christ-where-everywhere-allen-daves?trk=mp-reader-card

    JOHN 14: 8-20 where Christ specifically identifies himself (his person as the person of both the father and the HS; the only distinction is in “location” and “method of manifestation” …….Note Isaiah 9:6. For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: …: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counseller, … the everlasting Father ….The son, father/Holy Spirit are all the same person, NOT like two different persons working together even as “one flesh” ….The “oneness” between Christ and the father is not comparable to a man & his wife, for only a fool would say “When you have seen me you have seen my wife, how sayest thou then, Shew us your wife?” Notice they asked to see THE FATHER and the response was Jn 14:9 ..“HAVE I BEEN SO LONG time with you, and yet hast THOU NOT KNOW ME, Philip…..Now image some fool trying to claim that statement if you asked to see his wife!?!!? You want to see the FATHER but have I been with you but you don’t know me!?!?! https://www.scribd.com/doc/305367608/The-Trinity-Heresy

    Jn 14 continued….…………..17. Even THE SPIRIT OF TRUTH; (Jn 14:6 I AM the way, THE TRUTH,) whom the world cannot receive, .. for HE DEWLLETH WITH YOU, (present tense/standing next to them in the flesh) and SHALL BE IN YOU… (future tense “In them”) 18. I will not leave you comfortless: I WILL COME TO YOU (future tense “In them”) Note: The spirit of Christ is the sprit of God and the holy spirit that is why Christ said “I will come to you” (to comfort them, because Christ is the comforter). The spirit was standing next to them in flesh… ….latter it would come to them to be inside of them (inside of their flesh as the spirit we are given)…..that is why. he would send the spirit…… However, Jesus himself here makes the point that the same person who was the HOLY SPIRIT that would come was standing next to them but lets them know “I will come to you again to be Inside of you”

    The whole point to Gal 3:20.a mediator is NOT A MEDIATOR OF ONE, (HEIS) but GOD IS ONE. (HEIS) again, point blank, identifies the number of persons of God! The “but” points out the contrast between multiple persons in a mediation party v the “one” of God. God is not like a mediation party with multiple different persons. …..”the express image of his person” ( the person of God; singular not plural).Any attempt to lay claim otherwise is willful ignorance and delusional nonsense https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/part-1-echadechadmy-godgod-echad-allen-daves?trk=mp-reader-card

    NOTE: don’t be that one in prov 26:12 over my use of the word “fool” here prov 18:13 (https://www.scribd.com/presentation/322007258/Fools ) “But but, the gospel of John…the Gospel of John …look look…” which is quite ironic since the gospel of John does not leave ANY room for multiple different persons of Jesus and father. However the gospel of John does leave a few verses that facilitate God’s promise in 2 Thess 2:11/ Isaiah 66:4 (take note of “HAND” in verse 2,14..You just can’t make this stuff up…God is surely laughing at these fools; Ps 2:1&4)

    ……Mark 12:28…Which is the first commandment of all? 29. …Hear, O Israel; THE LORD OUR GOD IS ONE LORD: 30. And ………..this is the first commandment….. 31. And the second is…..
    JESUS IS GOD AND IS THE FULLFILMENT OF ALL THE LAW AND PROPHETS SO IF YOU CAN’T GET THIS “FIRST OF ALL COMMANDMENTS” RIGHT, ALL THE REST OF YOUR “FAITH” AND PREACHING ON SIN IS MOOT

    TRINITARIANS CONFESS JESUS /THEY ARE NOT POLYTHEIST BUT ARE MONOTHEIST LIKE A LIAR & THIEF WHO “CONFESS” THEY DO NOT LIE OR STEAL The simple fact is that just because you confess or deny that you are in an adulterous relationship and denounce all forms of adultery has nothing to do with whether or not it is in fact adulterous! .. …A rose by any other name is still just a rose AND calling it a water lily does not change the definition of what a water Lilly or a rose is either!…No, Trinitarians confess & preach literally …”ANOTHER JESUS” 2 Cor 11:4

    https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/part-2-pgs-91-101-chapter-eight-lets-talk-us-allen-daves?trk=mp-reader-card

    - Like a thief in your house caught stealing your things insisting he was not there stealing “I CONFESS I am NOT stealing”. You just do not “properly understand” what he is doing/saying. Further, since you never had a “proper understanding” of what he is doing/saying you have no business accusing him since you do not even know what you are talking about in the first place. It is with and in your own ignorance that you base your “false accusations” & “ad homonym attacks” against him…… Ridiculous of course it is ……2Thess 2:11; Titus 1:16; 2Tim 3:5;

    - A Favorite tool for pathological liars is to use incongruent definitions or create oxymorons out of synonyms such as “a person” and “a being” so as to claim that your god is THREE DIFFERENT PERSONS but ONLY ONE BEING: Which is (1) no different then trying to claim that “THREE DIFFERENT CARS” is “THE ONE VEHICLE” (2) blatant demonstration of the dishonesty & sorcery these children of hell will employ with “a strait face” (which is in part what it means to be a pathological liar)
    ……but, ah i remember how this game is played… “God is three in one” (or 1in 3 or 3in one et al) should have given you a hint, harking back to Satan in The garden…God said you will die…Satan comes along and states no you will be more WISE……today .God said He is one; but Satan’s children come along and say no three is more WISE and humble in the face of God’s grandeur only “a mystery” that can be understood “in faith”. God uses head and right arm to explain the distinctions between father and son.. However, the Trinitarian heretics say to the effect: “NO, that is just a figure of speech, or that is not what God really means. What God is really saying is that God is three different persons”. Fools, hypocrites and blind guides, God said he was One and by your traditions and vain imaginations have taken the words of God and made them of no effect, refashioning God into your image!

    #2 SECOND COMING Thou Fool! “I come quickly” so “Hold fast
    till i come”… NOT …“in another 2000 yrs I might be coming soon any time now, so hold fast”!?! …those that deny the second coming of Christ in the war of AD70 are practicing a damnable heresy in denying the lord that bought them ( 2Peter 2:1-2 ;2Tim 4:8/ you cant love an appearing you deny& the context is the 2nd coming not the first)… Mat 7:23..”I NEVER KNEW YOU” …..Mat 10:33. But whosoever shall deny me before men……..sound familiar?…. If I said I am coming to your house in this generation when these things happen but no one knows the day or hour what fool would think I might be coming in 2000 years latter!?!? ..2 Tim 4: 4. And
    they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be TURNED UNTO FABLES.
    2Thess 2: 11. And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12. That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.

    #3 There is a sharp contrast between THREE groups :

    (1) “PREDESTINED DAMNED” who were NEVER written in the book of life ………..Rev 17: 8 WHOSE NAMES WERE NOT WRITTEN IN THE BOOK OF LIFE FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD, …as contrasted …EPH 1: 4. According as he hath CHOSEN US in him BEFORE THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD

    (2) “MANY CALLED”= ONLY and ALL SAINTS (those who come to Christ) are written in the book of life … Philippians 4:3… ……Rev 21:27; (Only saints are Called and elect; Rom 1:6-7 et al) This is THE CHRUCH and ONLY these can have their names blotted out of the book of life ….….Heb 12:23 to the general assembly and CHURCH of the firstborn … WHICH ………are WRITTEN in heaven,

    (3) THE FEW CHOSEN: Those saints who were alive in group #2 who are now physically dead. They died “faithful” these are the FEW that were chosen faithful…….Rev 3:5. ……; and I
    will not BLOT OUT HIS NAME OUT OF THE BOOK OF LIFE, (Ps 69:28) …. These are the FEW that are CHOSEN and now that they have died and are saved then “once saved THEY CAN NEVER BE LOST”
