Woman With Crown of twelve stars the True Identity
Not The Church
The twelfth chapter of Revelation has also been misinterpreted. I believe that anytime that we read end time prophesy, we need to remind ourselves what 2nd Peter 1:20 says. "Knowing this first that prophesy in scripture has no private interpretation."
Now let us begin. The 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.
Everyone that I have ever heard speaking on this subject interprets this woman to represent "The Church". I have never believed that the Church gave birth to my Savior. Excuse me but; That idea seems a bit blasphemous to me. The clay pot does not create the potter. Please, really think about this, "The Church" did not give birth to the Savior. But it sounds so good for us to say that we gave birth to the man child that is to rule the world.
This woman, clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars would have to represent that Hebrew Nation that ceased to exist around 135- 138 AD. The twelve stars would have to represent the twelve tribes of Israel. This requires no interpretative skills, to read these verses exactly as they are written.
The Lord often referred to the Hebrew people as his adulterous wife. The Church also teaches that, the Church is to be the bride of Christ. If this is true, that should further prove that the woman that gives birth to Jesus can not be his bride to be. That would be incest. The Son would not marry his mother! The woman in this chapter definitely does not represent the Church.
That Hebrew nation that was in existence in those centuries; was the bride of GOD. The one that would naturally be the woman to give birth to the son of God. The Church has been applying too much private interpretational skills, when reading prophesy in scripture, though Peter says that this is not to be done.
The Dragon, that old serpent called the Devil was standing before the woman, which was ready to be deliver, for to devour her child as soon as it were to be delivered. This prophesy was fulfilled when Herod the Great attempted to have the baby Jesus killed, before Herod's death in 4 or 1 BC. (V. 5) And the woman brought forth a man child who was to rule all nations... and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne. This is definitely speaking of Jesus and his Crucifixion. The Church did not even exist at this point in time (6)And (when) the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there for 1260 days. And after she fled into the wilderness, and then ...(7) there was war in heaven... (13) And when the dragon saw that he had been cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman. (14) and the woman was given two wings of an eagle, and she was carried into the wilderness for a time, times and a half time where they will feed her there and she shall hide from the face of the serpent. This is describing two diffrent timeframes
In v. 6 ...they shall feed her there for 1260 days and in v. 14 she shall hide from the face of the serpent for a time, times and an half. When I first read these verses I thought that 1260 days and a time, times and an half were the same length of time. This is not true. These periods of time did in fact begin at the same time; but the duration of each was for a different time period. 1260 days would be approx. 1643 of our years that a place was prepared that they should feed her there. 1290 days would be 1683 years that she hid from the face of the serpent.
These two diffrent timeframes began when that Hebrew Nation was scattered to the four winds of the earth. That would be counting forward from approx the year 138 AD.
In Daniel 12:7 & 11, a time, times and an half is compared by the angel as being the same as 1290 days.
After this, the dragon cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood. What is it that we have been taught that comes out of Satan's mouth? The answer to that last question is LIES. The lies coming out of the dragon's mouth are false interpretations. A flood of lies came out of the dragon's mouth and the earth swallowed them up ( BELIEVED them). The earth believed the dragon's interpretations. They should have read 2nd Peter 1:20. Centuries and centuries of false teachings have brought us to where we are today. Confused with too many denominations to choose from. Too many belief systems. That old Serpent has divided and conquered.
After that Hebrew Nation was scattered into the wilderness around 138 AD the 1260 days began. 1643 years later would bring us to around 1781 that "they should feed her there". It was around this time that the Hebrew people began migrating back into their Promised Land.
A time times and half a time after 138 AD would bring us to around 1821 that she would be hiding from the face of the Dragon. IN 1844 The Caliphate signed a decree allowing Hebrews permission to enter the cities of Israel.
The 1335 days as mentioned in Daniel 12: would have been fulfilled around the year 1900. These numbers may not be absolutely correct though I believe that the concept is . Time as we know it may not be as consistent as we want to believe, making an absolute time equation impossible to comprehend. On the other hand these numbers may be correct and we do not see fully the significance of these dates.
The point that I am making is that most all of the end time prophesy have been fulfilled with the exception of the seventh trumpet being sounded and the seventh vial being poured out. It is written in prophesy that these two are to occur at the same time.
We forget sometimes, that .... for "all" those who's names are written in the book, life after death is all the same whether you were caught up tomorrow, today, or yesterday; WE ? They ? ...all go to the same place regardless of where we fit inside the scriptural Prophesy time line. We should not be offended if our teachers "MAY" ??? have innocently been taught misinterpretations, which were innocently misinterpreted to us. Check it out for yourselves. , Read it for yourself, with an open mind. uninfluenced by preconceived ideas. What does scripture REALLY say? It says that if it were possible even the very elect would believe Satan's lies. The Beast and false Prophet have been among us for a long long time. Knowing this should make it easier to identify them
