Revelation 12: Signs in the Sky
September 2017

So what do these signs mean? Some sceptics discount these signs saying this happened before, confuse astronomy with astrology, miss the forty-two weeks of Jupiter and debate the number of Leo's stars. Remember this year is the jubilee anniversaries of Martin Luther (1517), the Balfour Declaration (1917) and the Six Days War (1967). They ignore the solar eclipse on the eve of Elul, the forty days of Teshuvah, the Feast of Trumpets on September 21-23 and the Autumn Equinox during Rosh Hashanah. Then they misinterpret the verse, "No one knows the day or the hour." Jesus tells us no one knows until the new moon is seen on the eve of Yom Teruah and Paul refers to Leviticus 23 when he describes the Last Trump [Tekiah Gedolah] as the Rapture. Tishri is the beginning with creation and the end with the reign of Christ. See Trumpets.

More than 2020 years ago, a combination of Jewish holy days and signs in the sky occurred around Jesus Christ's birthday. See First Coming. The first coming gives us clues to the second. Jesus Christ was born 7-1 BC in Tishri and gave us redemption 27-33 AD (4000 AM). Add 2000 years later and its 2027-2033 (6000 AM). Subtract seven years for the Tribulation to get 2020-2027. The Roman calendar is off about six years so we are within the margin of error. There could be ten days or a few years between the Rapture and start of the Tribulation. These signs are significant for waking up Christians and revealing the Tribulation to the world. Therefore, if the Rapture occurs this Feast of Trumpets, are you ready to meet Jesus Christ as he brings the Church home?

When they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction comes upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape. But you, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief (1 Thessalonians 5:3-4).

Revelation 12 in the Sky - Saturday, September 23, 2017

Since 2014 there were many signs in the sky. From 2014-2016, twelve solar and lunar eclipses occurred on Jewish holy days. The lunar eclipses fell on Passover, Tabernacles, Passover, Tabernacles, Purim and 15th of Elul. See Eclipse. The eclipses continue through 2017-2019 on the minor days of the New Year for Trees in Shevat (February) and Day of Love in Av (August). August 21, 2017 was the Great American Eclipse. The spectacular solar eclipse crossed from Oregon to South Carolina. See Eclipse. On April 8, 2024, another total solar eclipse travels from Texas to Maine. However, the next sign in the sky is September 23, 2017 with the Woman of Revelation 12 on the Feast of Trumpets.

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 (Genesis 1:14).

There shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; Men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory (Luke 21:25-27).

Revelation is not sequential but a description of parallel signs. Seals, trumpets, bowls, the Beast, Mystery Babylon and Armageddon all end at the Second Coming. According to 21st Century Revelation: World Wars, Iraq Wars and End Wars, we are at 1) the end of Revelation 3:14-22 with the Laodicean church and 2) the end of Revelation 6:8 as the four horses are causing havoc on the earth and 3) Revelation 9:12 between the 5th Trumpet of Iraq War II and the 6th Trumpet of Iraq War III/World War III between China and the United States. See 7 Seals and 7 Trumpets. Revelation 10 describes the bitter scroll, the beginning of the Tribulation and God's judgment. Revelation 12 describes signs in heaven of the woman and the red dragon.

For thus says the Lord; We have heard a voice of trembling, of fear, and not of peace. Ask you now, and see whether a man does travail with child? wherefore do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in travail, and all faces are turned into paleness? Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble, but he shall be saved out of it (Jeremiah 30:5-7).
Revelation 12 is taught as a parenthesis, a past sign of the virgin birth of Jesus Christ and future Tribulation between the woman Israel and the red dragon Satan. However, there is a literal sign of a woman in heaven today. The Sun covers the constellation Virgo (Virgin) and the Moon is under her feet. Nine stars of Leo (Lion) plus "wandering stars" Mercury, Venus and Mars are the crown of twelve stars. From November 20, 2016 to September 9, 2017, Jupiter traveled back and forth through Virgo for nine months. Part of that journey was in a retrograde motion (reverse).

There appeared a great wonder [sign] 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 (Revelation 12:1-2).

A second sign appears in heaven, a red dragon with seven heads. The dragon/serpent is the constellations Serpens, Ophiuchus, Hercules, Draco, Lynx, Cancer and Hydra that encircle the woman. The seven crowns are seven stars of Corona Borealis. The tail swept a third of stars from the sky to the earth with ten meteor showers in December 2020. The birth pains of Virgo leads to the birth of Jupiter. At the First Coming, Mary gave birth to Jesus but in this end time sign, Israel gives birth to the Church and she flees from the Beast. The child was conceived on Pentecost and truly born again on Trumpets. This celestial dragon seeks to devour the child. Ophiuchus (serpent-bearer) crushes Saturn's (or Satan's) head.

There appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, to devour her child as soon as it was born (Revelation 12:3-4).
Jupiter 1) enters the womb of the constellation Virgo on November 20, 2016, 2) starts a retrograde motion reversing on February 6, 2017, 3) moves forward again on June 10, 2017, 4) after forty-two weeks, exits the womb on September 9, 2017 and aligns to the Revelation 12 sign at the end of the Feast of Trumpets on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at twilight Jerusalem time.

[Church of Thyatira] He that overcomes, and keeps my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father (Revelation 2:26-27).

There appeared another wonder [sign] in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, to devour her child as soon as it was born (Revelation 12:3-4).

After birth, the child did not ascend but John uses the rapture word harpazo as God rescues the child from sudden destruction. Jesus was resurrected, so those of us in Christ will be resurrected and raptured to heaven. Jesus will rule all nations so we will rule with Him. The woman Israel was persecuted by the dragon but is protected forty-two months, the second half of the Tribulation.

She brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up [raptured] unto God, and to his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she had a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and sixty days (Revelation 12:5-6).

[Church of Philadelphia] Because you have kept the word of my patience, I also will keep you from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth (Revelation 3:10).
