Symbolism of the Great Sign

Let them give glory to the LORD, And declare His praise in the coastlands. The LORD shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up His zeal like a man of war. He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; He shall prevail against His enemies. (Isa. 42:12, 13)

Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. (Ps. 24:9b)

Revelation 12 is the last warning sign of the approaching Day of the Lord and the perfect storm that is coming with it. It signifies the actualization of Christ’s special expectations for His church. As I discussed in the previous chapter, the imminent Day of the Lord will be accompanied by a battle between two armies, both of which God will allow to be fought. The destructive army will be characterized by the wrath and judgement on the wickedness of people who refused to repent of their ways and accept the only God, Jesus Christ: “Do homage to the Son, that He not become angry, and you perish in the way, For His wrath may soon be kindled. How blessed are all who take refuge in Him!” (Ps. 2:12, NASB) The second army will prepare the way in praise and obedience to Him. They will open the gates and allow Him to come with glory, because He is the King of Glory and expects to come as such: “Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, The LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory”  (Ps. 24:7-10).

I strongly believe that the second army will have a great number of women. At least, God will use women to wake up the rest. Their main job is to stay on their knees in prayer. This will cause God to move into the midst of His Church. Thus, through His Church, He will glorify Himself in the last hours. Before we go into detail on the task of this glorious second army, we will unmask the symbolism of Revelation 12:

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of 12 stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in labor and agony as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: There was a great fiery red dragon having seven heads and 10 horns, and on his heads were seven diadems. His tail swept away a third of the stars in heaven and hurled them to the earth. And the dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she did give birth he might devour her child. But she gave birth to a Son—a male who is going to shepherd all nations with an iron scepter—and her child was caught up to God and to His throne. (Rev. 12:1–5, HCSB)

  • A great sign appeared in heaven: This is an actual sign in heaven with the physical heavenly bodies and constellations. This sign also carries symbolism that conveys a spiritual message for Jewish people and the Church. (I describe the activity of those bodies in chapter one.)
  • A woman . . . with a crown of 12 stars on her head: The woman represents the nation of Israel, because she has a crown of twelve stars to represent the twelve tribes and in particular the tribe of Judah or a lion (Gen. 49:8–10). This crown is shaped like a lion. The Church is included as well. It believes in Jewish Messiah, Jesus Christ and His Scriptures.
  • Clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet: The sun represents birth or enlightenment of the woman. The moon represents night or great trials. Both are primarily related to the woman. Thus, it suggests that the Jewish nation and the Church will endure great tribulation, which will birth a certain positive outcome.
  • She was pregnant and cried out in labor and agony to give birth: The trials will bring worth the rebirth of the Church or revival, where many Jewish people will accept Christ as their Messiah, and the Church will purify its garments.
  • But she gave birth to a Son—a male who is going to shepherd all nations with an iron scepter: “Son” represents the Church or the body of Christ. The tribulation of Jewish people and the Church will bring rebirth or revival to the Church. God always did everything related to Him through His people, the Jews. The Holy Bible was written through them to bless whole humanity. The Law was given through them in order to set God’s moral ethics for humanity. Covenants were made between God and them. Jesus, the Savior came from them. The early church was made out of them first. The final global revival will not be without them. Their blessings come directly to the gentiles. We are blessed through the seed of Abraham, Jesus Christ. We must pray for their revival in order to get our revival.
  • Her child was caught up to God and to His throne: “Child” represents the Church, which is body of Christ. The revived Church will be caught up or raptured to be with God. This Church will be made up of Jews and people out of all nations.
  • Then another sign appeared in heaven: There was a great fiery red dragon having seven heads and 10 horns, and on his heads were seven diadems. His tail swept away a third of the stars in heaven and hurled them to the earth: The second sign will be within the physical bodies of heaven and holds a spiritual message for us. A political system will rise and persecute the reborn Church, both Jews and Gentiles.
  • And the dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she did give birth he might devour her child: During the revival and the rebirth of the Church, the political system will try to crush the Church through severe persecution. At this time, the Rapture will happen.

Let’s simplify things: Shortly after September 23, 2017, will be a great hardship and possible persecution of Jewish people and the Church all over the world. God will allow these trials to bring revival to His beloved descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and the Church. Through this persecution, they will accept their Messiah, Yeshua Hamashiach. Many people will accept Christ as their Savior. The world and the Church will witness miracles that have never been seen before. The name of Jesus Christ will be revered above any name. Many physical and spiritual strongholds will melt at the mention of His name. All these things will be possible because of God’s people filling their prayer cups for the world and their family members, relatives, neighbors, church, city, state, and country. At the peak of the revival, satan will raise a political system to crush the wave of the Holy Spirit’s movement throughout the land. The new, powerful Church will experience an intense persecution, but only for a short time. Sometime during the persecution, the Rapture will take place. The Feast of the Trumpets stands for the Rapture: “in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed” (1 Cor. 15:52).

After the Rapture, the antichrist will come into power for 3.5 years. He will go after God’s remaining people, the Jews who didn’t accept Jesus and Christians who were not raptured due to not being ready (Rev. 12:6–17). During these 3.5 years, people will see the other half of Revelation, which follows chapter 12. The rest of Revelation mostly describes the events that will take place after the Church is caught up. Those will be times of the great Tribulation. Left behind people will witness: the antichrist (Rev. 13); the trampling of the holy city and prophesying of the two witnesses (Rev. 11:1–14); the boils of wrath for serving the beast (Rev. 16); the judgement of the Babylon (Rev. 17, 18); the battle of Armageddon – the Feast of Atonement (Rev. 14:14–20; 19:11–21; Zech. 14:1–4); and the blowing of the seventh angel with his trumpet – the Feast of Tabernacles (Rev. 11:15–19).

Pray Against Gang Formation

In 2018, the Lord showed me in a dream about formation of gangs. They will be forming everywhere and will be rubbing and hurting people. The Lord does not want this to happen. He asks His people to stand in the gap with prayer against this and not to be afraid.  The Lord will be using our prayers to stop them from forming. God wants to show mercy for many people. He doesn’t want people to be hurt. We live in such a time that this will happen even more. Therefore, we need to offer prayers every day against this from now on.

Dream About a Virus

About five years ago, I had a following dream: A TV screen appeared in front of me. The screen was old dating from 1960-1970. From the screen, the speaker was announcing of a terrible virus that is rapidly spreading throughout the world. I saw people in a panic. This virus originated in the country across the ocean from America. I was given the knowledge that it spreads through the air. The speaker also said that vaccines can stop this virus. At the beginning, there will be few available. Therefore, they will first be offered to medical workers. In a dream, a distinctly male voice spoke: “My people, my people! Do not be afraid and be calm. The virus will not touch my true children. And I will show the difference between my people and the rest. But pray. Do not take vaccinations.”

In a dream, I realized that these vaccines will be developed in a hurry and lead to bad consequences. I also realized that people need to pray for their protection, and against the spread of this virus, and most of all against the panic that is brought to the people through the screen that I saw in a dream. Also pray that the Lord will show grace of healing and salvation to the effected.

Pray Against Persecution

We live on the verge of the second coming of the Lord Jesus Christ. We know from Scripture that global persecution is inevitable: “Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and kill you, and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake” (Matthew 24:9, NKJV). The Lord warns us through prophecies and Scripture to pray for ourselves and our children in advance for such a time.

Although persecution is unavoidable, we can still protect ourselves, our families, churches and even geographical areas from strong attacks by the enemy. If the prayers are done in consistency and long before the events, then it is indeed possible to receive mercy and live under the protection of God, as it is written in the 91st Psalm.

Therefore, do not be afraid, pray in advance for strength and mercy for the days before us.

Tips: Include such petitions daily in your prayers; ask at your church prayer meetings to petition for the church and geographical area of choice (village, city, state, province, country).

Thank you for the repost.

Thoughts on Crucifixion

“Then He said to them all, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it”” (Luke 9:23-24, NKJV).

As we celebrate Passover (Easter), let’s analyze the meaning of Crucifixion from a different angle. Just as Jesus came to earth to live, suffer, and die for us; as His disciples we may experience tribulations. It is written that: “The Son of Man must suffer many things, and be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised the third day” (Luke 9:22, NKJV). Do not be surprised if your trials will take place at a church. The church is where many can be tested the most. In fact, I had a dream where I was persecuted by my local church’s sisters. While going through trials and persecution do not be afraid. Just as it was the perfect will of the Father for Jesus, it’s the perfect will of Christ to take us through necessary trials to purify us and make us precious as high quality gold. Jesus was glorified after undergoing the cross! We see such examples in lives of King David and Joseph. After passing their trials they were rewarded with a high position. The greater the calling the more intense testing to overcome.
