Woman and Dragon

Revelation Chapter 12
And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth.”

How bright and glorious of this woman! God did not tell us who she is, but surely she is closely related to God’s kingdom for she give birth the sons who rule all the nations. Surely she represents an heavenly organization who is responsible sealing(give birth) the 144000 saints.

And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems.”

There was another sign in heaven that was a great red dragon, it has seven heads and ten horns, and his heads with seven diadems. What does it mean? Please read <Bruise Serpent Head>. This red dragon is also an heavenly organization the Devil, who wants to kill the woman’s son(heavenly kingdom).

His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it.”

What does it mean of the red dragon swept down a third of the stars? it means it controls a third of angels in heaven and they are following the red dragon, but they were thrown down to the earth. This dragon was monitoring the heavenly woman, wanted to devour her child.

She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, “

Who is the male child? We can say he symbolic Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is the representative of God’s kingdom. He will break down all the nations and it will be the only one kingdom of God. Daniel 2:44 “And in the days of those kings the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that shall never be destroyed… It shall break in pieces all these kingdoms and bring them to an end, and it shall stand forever”. This child “was caught up to God and to his throne” that means Jesus went to the heaven in AD33 and sit down next to the God’s throne.

and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days.”

Why Jehovah God prepared a wilderness place for the heavenly woman, and nourished her 1260 days? That means she gave birth a male child did not finished her mission, she was finished the first part, another part should be finished in 1260 days. Why the place was wilderness? It was symbolized the time of Israelis left Egypt and stayed in the wilderness period. Please read <Revelation message> and <Seven Seals>. Why the time is the 1260 days? Because it is related to the prophecy of <Seventy Sevens or Seventy Weeks>.

Now war arose in heaven, Michael and his angels fighting against the dragon. And the dragon and his angels fought back, but he was defeated, and there was no longer any place for them in heaven.”

And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.”

Michael and his angels make war with the dragon and his angels, the dragon and his angels were defeated and thrown down to the earth. Who is the dragon? He is the ancient serpent called Devil and Satan who deceives the whole world. Now they were no any place in heaven, they couldn’t go to heaven any more. When did the dragon throw down to the earth?

10 And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying,

“’Now‘ the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ ‘have come‘, for the accuser of our brothers ‘has been‘ thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. 11 And they have conquered him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, for they loved not their lives even unto death. 

12 Therefore, rejoice, O heavens and you who dwell in them! But woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil ‘has come down‘ to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!”

So when did the dragon has thrown down to the earth? Angel told apostle John in loud voice, ‘Now‘… the salvation and the power and the kingdom… ‘have come‘. When was the time of ‘Now‘ that angel declared? “Now” was the time of apostle John got the Revelation. What time of apostle John wrote down the Revelation? Maybe about AD98, so that means the war of Michael and the dragon was ended before AD98. The dragon and his angels had already thrown down to the earth at that time. Also some saints had been killed for the testimony sake too.

Angel told apostle John “now“…. Heavens were rejoice but “woe to you, O earth and sea, for the devil ‘has come down‘ to you in great wrath, because he knows that his time is short!”. If we read the history of the early church, we would found that the persecution of the church was very violent at the end of 1st century and reached to the climax in the 2rd century. Also woe to the earth the sea, for devil knows his time is short.

13 And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.”

14 But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.”

So the woman will stay in the wilderness “a time, times, and half a time”, what does it mean? Please read <Seven Churches and Seven Stars> you will know the mystery of “a time, and times, and half a time” and this period is the “seven churches period” from AD70 to the End Day. It is also the “1260 days” period, so maybe the war was happened after Jesus back to the heaven and before AD70 this period.

15 The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, to sweep her away with a flood. 16 But the earth came to the help of the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river that the dragon had poured from his mouth”.

What does it mean? Actually, it happens in the spirit world, we can’t see. Rev. 17:15 says, ‘ And the angel said to me, “The waters that you saw, where the prostitute is seated, are peoples and multitudes and nations and languages”‘. So maybe the “water” means the red dragon wants to use the people(false saints) from his mouth(offspring come out from him) to replace the woman’s offspring(144000 saints). And we have no idea how it happens about “the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river that the dragon had poured from his mouth”, but surely the help is from God.

17 Then the dragon became furious with the woman and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring(Saints), on those who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus”. 

When the dragon’s trick failed, he went off to make war on the rest of woman’s offspring(saints). The rest of woman’s offspring they are the 144000 saints who are sealed by God. The Woman and Dragon(Old Serpent) was the first prophecy declared in Genesis 3:15,

I will put enmity between you(Red Dragon) and the woman(Heavenly Woman),
    and between your offspring(Red Dragon’s offspring) and her offspring(Jesus and 144000 Saints);
he(Heavenly Kingdom) shall bruise your head,
    and you shall bruise his heel.

The vision about the Woman and Red Dragon, the first and the most important prophecy has declared in Genesis, it will be fulfilled completely that God has declared in the Revelation. But how did the red dragon make war on the saints? He use the beast…

“And he(The Red Dragon) stood on the sand of the sea…” <The Beast 666>
