The Meaning Of The Sign Of The Woman Clothed With The Sun


 

In just a few days, on 9/23/2017, the Revelation 12 sign of the woman clothed with the sun will appear in the sky. The last time this sign appeared it heralded the birth of the Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ. When the sign appears this time what will it herald? That is the million dollar question.
 
Before the answer to that question is presented let me first say that I am truly amazed at how many Christians have never even heard of the sign, let alone even care to know what it means. This speaks loudly to the condition of the Church—sound asleep to essential end times events and doctrines.
 
God tells us to watch; But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. 1 Pet 4:7. Unfortunately many in the church have neglected to follow God’s admonition and watch or they would be aware of the most important scriptural sign in 2000 years.
 
And that brings us to another point; many who do know about the sign have misinterpreted its meaning.
 
So what does the Revelation 12 sign of the woman clothed with the sun mean? Plain and simple; it is a time marker. And let me strongly say; it is not the time marker of the rapture as many think.
 
The reason I can say this is because the rapture does not occur until after the antichrist arises, performs the abomination of desolation, takes over the world, and begins persecuting Jews and Christians (Seal 5). It is after these events that Seal 6 is opened and the rapture occurs. None of that has happened yet so it is impossible for it to be the time of the rapture.
 
Some think the 9/23/2017 sign will mark the end of the world as brought out by this Fox News article. 


The article makes some erroneous claims such as the sign occurs every 12 years—it does not. The sign is also not based on numerology nor astrology as they claim. The sign is based on Biblical astronomy, which describes a very rare alignment of the stars and planets. But I do agree with their conclusion that the end of the world will not be on 9/23/2017. As you will see below the sign is however connected to end times events.
 
If it does not mark the rapture or the end of the world, then what will it be a time marker of? Let’s examine the passage to see what God tells us.
 
1 And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:
 
2 And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.
 
3 And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.
 
4 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, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.
 
5 And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.
 
6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
 
7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,
 
8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
 
9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
 
10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.
 
11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
 
12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.
 
13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.
 
14 And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
 
15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
 
16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.
 
17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
 
Notice in verse 1 the sign is described—the constellation Virgo, clothed with the sun, the moon under her feet, and with a crown of 12 stars/planets—a rare alignment.  About 2000 years ago this sign heralded the birth of the Messiah. In verses 2 – 5 we see the birth of Jesus, his being attacked by the devil and his forces, and then his ascension into heaven. And then in verse 6 we see a reference to end times Israel fleeing into the wilderness for 3.5 years.
 
How can this be? How can the birth of Christ be intertwined with end tines Israel fleeing at the hands of the antichrist? Because the Revelation 12 passage has a double fulfillment, once at Christ’s first coming, and again around His second coming. Here is the double fulfillment pattern; sign—birth—persecution by person indwelt by satan—ascension into heaven. Here are the two fulfillments.
 
 

 
9/11/2 B.C.: Sign of the woman clothed with the sun—birth of Christ—persecution of Christ by satanic individuals and a man indwelt by satan—ascension into heaven.
 
 
 
 
9/23/2017: Sign of the woman clothed with the sun—antichrist birthing ritual and arrival of antichrist—persecution of Jews and Christians by antichrist indwelt by satan (Seal 5)—Christians ascend into heaven/raptured.
 
So to answer the question; what is the meaning of the 9/23/2017 Revelation 12 sign of the woman clothed with the sun? It is a time marker after which the passage above tells us there will be a battle of the angels, satan will be cast down to the earth, the antichrist will come onto the scene, and he will take over the world and begin his 3.5 year reign of terror and persecution. And it is during this Seal 5 persecution that the Christians are rescued via the rapture after Seal 6 is opened.
 
If the sign aligns near the midpoint of the 70th Week then we may see things happen on the day of or very soon after 9/23/2017. And these events have the strong possibility of being antichrist connected. If the sign aligns near the beginning of the 70th Week then we will probably not see things happen for a few years.
 
As a confirmation of this sign/antichrist connection it is interesting to note that individuals aligned with satan are celebrating the sign and are eagerly anticipating the arrival of their man the antichrist.
 
 
 
So if the evil forces can recognize the sign and what it means why can’t Christians?
 
To reiterate; the Revelation 12 sign of the woman clothed with the sun is a time marker after which sometime in the future the devil will be cast unto the earth, the antichrist will come onto the scene, persecution of Jews and Christians will occur, and Israel will flee into the wilderness for 3.5 years.
 
The sign may or may not be accompanied by other “events.” Regardless of what else may or may not happen on the day of the sign, the main event will be the sign. It is truly a historic event—we will be watching Bible prophecy being fulfilled right before our eyes!
 
The religious folk of the day missed the importance of the first sign but the Wise men recognized its importance and sought the Lord. My prayer is that many today will be like the wise men of old, recognize its importance, and take action and seek the Lord while He may be found.
 
(Note: Let me remind you that on 9/20/2017 is the Christ angle pyramid alignment and is also Elul 29 in a Jubilee year—a day prime for market collapses.
 
 
 
This is followed by the 9/23/2017 sign as described above. 9/23 has been the subject of much predictive programming involving asteroids, UFO events, fake raptures, giant storms, earthquakes, war, etc. Whether or not any of those things will happen is yet to be seen. BTW; both 9/20/2017 and 9/23/2017 are encoded on the dollar bill.)
 
Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. Luke 21:36

    1. What About Revelation 3:10?
      Some pre-trib adherents make further claims, citing Revelation 3:10 as evidence that God will not only keep the Christian from His wrath, but will also keep them from the hour of temptation—that is, the entire 70th Week: “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.” However, a careful examination of the Greek used in this passage actually shows that the passage supports the view that believes that the rapture will occur at the sixth seal.

      Robert Van Kampen, in The Rapture Question Answered Plain & Simple, has made a thorough analysis of this verse. Let us examine a few excerpts from that section.

      When the underlying Greek text is studied carefully, comparing Scripture with Scripture, we will discover that the “hour of testing” refers specifically to that time associated with antichrist’s persecution. . . . More importantly we will see that the Greek words underlying our English translations argue that this terrible time of testing cannot be the wrath of God, but must be the wrath of satan. . . . If the Greek word peirasmos, as used in the Revelation 3:10 passage, is compared to its use in other New Testament passages, we will see that the “hour of testing” cannot refer to the wrath of God but, quite the opposite, to the wrath of satan. . . . They all say the same thing: satan is the source of all peirazo, not God. Like the logical argument, the biblical argument from scripture demonstrates that the “hour of testing” in Rev. 3:10 cannot refer to the wrath of God but, by definition, must be the wrath of satan.[1]

      Another phrase in Revelation 3:10 that we need to consider is “will keep thee from.” The Greek phrase used here is tereo ek. Van Kampen has this to say about that phrase:

      Tereo ek, is used in conjunction, can only refer to guarding or protecting those who persevere while they are within the sphere of danger, and then bringing them safely out from the midst of that danger. Thus the meaning of the text is clear. Tereo ek should be translated, “a watchful protection within the sphere of danger, with a safe deliverance out from the midst of it.[2]

      Combining the analysis of the Greek into a translation of Revelation 3:10 yields a rendering that shows that the Christian will not be spared from the great tribulation, but will be rescued out of it:

      Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will rescue you out of the midst of the hour of satan’s temptation, the great tribulation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

      So the analysis of the Greek in Revelation 3:10 does not support a pre-trib view, but supports a pre-wrath view of the rapture.

  2. We are seeing events that will eventually culminate to the return of Christ. Meanwhile the cover story of climate change and extraterrestrial life will be the theme for deception to catch people unaware or sleeping.
    The changes with the sun are seemingly connected with changes with earths weather and now this marker of the Revelation 12 sign in the heavens will certainly bring us closer to the end time events that will occur. The time of lying signs and wonders? I have thought and pondered for many years how it would be possible to deceive the elect. Flawed understanding and false information. The final stage of satans plan is to seek to discredit Christ and those who follow His Word in his war with God. This war is for the most part unseen because it is not of this realm.
    As far as being rescued from tribulation, following Christ comes with the promise of tribulation and difficulty. There will be many who fall away because of the lies about the rapture.

  3. Jeff- I am in direct e-mail contact with a few pretribbers that are adamant about the rapture happening Sep 23rd. Its like I am a heathen asking them to continue our conversations when they find themselves here next week. I am sinning by prepping. I am trying to just minimize the falling away that will happen. These people setting dates for the rapture happening before the AC is revealed, the abomination of desolation, and great tribulation, is doing a great service to Satan to help weaken their faith and cause a falling away.

    And I am the heathen?

    1. Understanding the origin of the lies that entered the church as tiny seeds of lies long ago have grown to fruit bearing trees. In my research after having to confront the leadership at a church we were attending about the unwillingness to conduct themselves in accordance with the scriptures I discovered in that particular church history a story of a man who led many people away from churches to follow his flawed understanding about the return of Christ .

      Many of these fringe demonazations (my coined name for them) are basically cults. When looking at the defining characteristics of a cult they always become adversarial when confronted with a view from the truth that does not support their belief.
      What has given satan more power than the scattering/splintering of God's people?
      Notice this William Miller had previously been a Freemason ? The false ideas about Christ returning for His bride did not come from scripture.
      The Word of God is very clear about them that would reject the very clear truths of Gods Word. They will be a liability to those of the faith will be used just as Judas was by the AC.

      In studying, I have found that it is better to leave that which can only be known by the Father Himself to Him. Quarreling and disputing will only drive in the rift further.

      Be found doing the will of the Father Stan and be rooted in the truth. The wheat and the tares will be sorted on the day of harvest.
      Remember also that we can be deceived and are subject to error.
      Matthew 16 records the exchange between Christ and his disciples. Peter, while commended for his response of faith in the same passage was rebuked by the Lord and called satan for his statements born in the flesh.

  4. You said the sign appears in the sky every 2000 years and that is not truth. Use any program to check.

    1. yes Virgo is clothed with the sun and moon under her feet about every 12 years, but she does not have the alignment of planets and stars to form the crown of 12 stars but about every 2000 years.

    2. ok but the 'full Revelation 12' is not fulfilled neither 12 nor about 2000 years. The planets alignment is normal because it's their orbiting line but I have not found any other year where the sign is fulfilled. If you do find some other year please tell me the date so I can check. Thank you

  5. This is so wonderful and terrible all at the same time. I am a grandmother and great grandmother. I have alerted my family and they all understand the sign of coming events. I am blessed to know that out of 10 college aged grandchildren not one of them rebuked me or called me crazy. They are ready and I am blessed. I hope all who read this are ready as well...God be with you
