I have recently seen some very interesting videos about an event that some are calling “The Revelation-12 Sign.” These videos are about the sun-clothed woman in Rev. 12:1-2.  But I want to begin in Genesis chapter 1 which says the sun, moon and stars are for signs.

“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day [sun] and the lesser light to rule the night [moon]: he made the stars also” (Genesis 1:14-16).

This brings to mind something Jesus said about His return.

“And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity . . . And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:25, 28).

When the return of Jesus is close there will be signs in the sun, moon and stars, but He didn’t reveal what these signs are, or did He?

In the Revelation of Jesus Christ (Rev. 1:1), commonly called the book of Revelation, it is written:

“And there appeared a great wonder (a great sign) in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars” (Rev. 12:1-2).

This woman is Israel (see Gen. 37:9-11) and John called her a great wonder (a great sign) in heaven with the sun, moon and stars.

This is the only thing that is called a “great wonder” or a “great sign” in the Bible. Could this be what God meant when He said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs?” I can’t say for sure, but it could be too important to overlook.

In 2012, someone noticed that a very rare event will occur in 2017. Two constellations (Virgo and  Leo) will line up in a way that seems to create this sign in heaven.

Some say they come close to lining-up quite often (there may be 10 stars in the crown or 11 stars in the crown, or all of them may present with the moon out of line, etc.). But this may be the first time the sun, moon and all 12 stars have been in this position in thousands of years (perhaps since God created Adam and  Eve).

Notice the names of the constellations; Virgo is Latin for virgin. Leo is Latin for lion.

And notice that Jesus is the virgin born Son of God who will come back as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah (Rev. 5:5).

These constellations will be lined-up like the sun-clothed woman in Revelation 12:1-2 on Sept. 23, 2017.

Some believe the Rapture of the Church will be on the Jewish Feast day called Rosh Hoshanah (the Feast of Trumpets; sundown to sundown Sept. 21-22). So according to that view this great sign will appear on the first day after Rosh Hoshanah which is the first Sabbath after the Feast of Trumpets.

2017 is the year 5777 on the Hebrew calendar. It is 50 years from 1967.

At the Second Coming, natural disasters will be like a woman in travail (birth pangs). Concerning this great sign in heaven, John said, “And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered” (Rev. 12:2).

John added, “And she brought forth a man child [Jesus], who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron (second coming): and her child was caught up [raptured] unto God, and to his throne.” (The First Coming cited in  Revelation 12:5.)

Is this astrology? It would be if it was about humans, their horoscopes, etc. But it is not about that.

It is about what some have noticed about a great sign in the Bible. It could be very important and there is more to it than this article covers.

It is recommended that everyone take a look at Revelation 12 and decide for themselves.

  • Firstly, the Book of Revelation is written In Sequence. There are 7 seals, 7 trumpets, and 7 bowl judgments. They happen in that order. Revelation 12 does not happen until after the 7th trumpet and before the 1st bowl judgment. We are currently at the 3rd seal. Still a few years away from Revelation 12, so we can’t put it ahead of it’s appointed time. I too believe that the res/rap will happen on the Feast of Trumpets, but which year is questionable. The reasons is because we have lost count. We could be at 5777 but we could be several years out as well. We don’t know what year of the 7 year cycles we are in, and we don’t know for sure when the last and next Jubilee year is. So the closest we can come is the Feast of Trumpets, and be ready every year at that time until it happens. More at ItsHisStory.com with scriptural references. Time to Get Right With God is Now.

    • I think from watching this weary world, that we are up to the part in Revelation that says one third of all the grass, all the land and all the seas were (lost) burned up. And if I am right, I am amazed that I live to see these days.

  • The “woman” in New Testament refers to “ecclesia”. Rev. 7 tells of 12,000 of all of the tribes of the children of Israel–the 144,000 that are sealed in their foreheads– the foundation of the New Jerusalem. Qualifications described in Rev. 14. Apostles names are on the gates. In Rev 7:9, “…multitude which no man could number…”
