Revelation 12:2-7 The Woman Flees into the Wilderness.
Go to the index page for: The Revelation of Navi Y'shua
We pray to HaShem, the Holy One of Israel, to fill our hearts with wisdom and understanding as we continue this study into the Revelation of our chief rabbi, Navi Y'shua and Navi Daniel. With this understanding we pledge ourselves to standing always with Israel.
We continue now with our discussion of the Woman (People Israel) and her Son (the coming Theocratic Kingdom):Revelation 12:2 She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.
As discussed in verse one, Israel directly began putting forth her "leaves" in 1948 or 1967. The "unbanding process" (Daniel 4) began earlier with the period of 1913-1917 being critical. Since that time Israel has been "pregnant" with the Kingdom. Now in Navi John's time line she is in "labor." Now her "son," the theocratic kingdom, is about to be born.
Present day Israel is the precursor or mother of the Theocratic Kingdom of HaShem, not the kingdom itself. This is a sacred responsibility! To support the nation of Israel is to stand with the future Kingdom and to oppose the present nation of Israel is to oppose the mother of God's kingdom and God Himself.Revelation 12:3 Another sign was seen in heaven. Behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven crowns.
12:4 His tail drew one third of the stars of the sky, and threw them to the earth. The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.
The symbolism is clear now that the context has been established. As the global kingdom of the Rex Mundi appears to have reached its zenith, the theocratic kingdom of HaShem will be born. On the verge of true global peace and security the fierce enemy, likened to a great red dragon, will turn against national and people Israel seeking to wipe them from the planet! This will be remenesent of the Nazi era, had Hitler conquered the earth enire, but much worse.
The Red Dragon
This Red Dragon enemy symbolically has seven heads and ten horns with seven crowns on his heads. In my upcoming study of the Book of Daniel I'll be going into this symbolism in more depth. For now, you might find my study The Image of the Beast of interest. The image presented in the Book of Daniel is of this same time frame and references this same powerful secret government.
In brief, the Red Dragon here in Revelation chapter 12 is Heylel (Lucifer) the serpent creature that enticed Adam and Chava (Eve) to join the Rebellion. Heylel was joined in the Rebellion by an estimated third of the celestial beings known as angles (Isaiah 14:12, Revelation 12:4). Now, at the End of the Age, the leader of the Rebellion will go after the Elect of HaShem with a vengeance (likely precipated by an attack on the leader's life as we will discuss in chapter 13)! He understands that if Israel survives this seven year conflict the Rebellion is over!
Even as HaShem's earthly representative is the House of Israel (the Jews), so too Heylel has earthly representatives who are working to establish global governance. From this "New World Order" Rex Mundi will arise.
The Red Dragon references Heylel (Lucifer). The "Beast" references the Rex Mundi (Anti-Christ). The Red Dragons's celestial and terestrial powers manifest as and through "heads" (economic power blocks) and "crowns" (political power blocks). Once these heads and crowns finalize their "New World Order" (the Novus Ordo Mundi) Rex Mundi (the Beast) will take to the stage and estalish the New Order of the Ages (the Novus Ordo Seclorum).
That this process is well underway is obvious to anyone willing to open to their eyes:"We cannot leap into world government in one quick step... The precondition for ... genuine globalization is progressive regionalization, because thereby we move toward larger, more stable, more cooperative units."Its simply a fact.
-- Zbigniew Brzezinski, former head of the Trilateral Commission and foreign policy adviser to many US presidents including George W. Bush and Barack Hussein Obama].
"For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as internationalists and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure - one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."
-- David Rockefeller - From his Memoirs
"A system of world order -- preferably a system of world government -- is mandatory. The proud nations someday will see the light and, for the common good and their own survival, yield up their precious sovereignty"
-- Walter Cronkite in his book, "A Reporter's Life."
"We are grateful to The Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But, the work is now much more sophisticated and prepared to march towards a world government. The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries."
-- David Rockefeller, founder of the Trilateral Commission, address to The Trilateral Commission, June, 1991.
Order of the Defeated Dragon - Merovingian BloodlineRevelation 12:5a She gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron.This is not talking about the itinerant Jewish rebbe who roamed Judea in the first century talking about God's Love! This is a powerful general and monarch! This is the appearance of the Melekh, the King of Israel onto the world stage!
Under his reign Israel will be established in all the lands promised to Abraham and his descendants as shown in the map on the right.
Under his reign Israel will become the Theocratic Kingdom of HaShem on earth. By his reign the rebellion will be finished and the earth will gradually become Gan Eden with Jerusalem as the heart and capital.
This is the essential role of haMoshiach. That Rebbe Y'shua did not embrace this role as Melekh of Israel is the central reason traditional Jews reject his Messianic bid. This is the central task of haMoshiach according to the Bible. Now Rebbe Y'shua will take up the mantle of Messiah; now he will defeat the enemies of Israel; now he will sit as king upon the throne of David at Jerusalem and rule Israel as sovereign majesty under the the divine anointing of HaShem.Revelation 12:5b Her child was caught up to God, and to his throne.
12:6 The woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that there they may nourish her one thousand two hundred sixty days.
Under direct attack by the global government Israel (a remnant of the the Jewish people) will "flee into the wilderness" and HaShem will protect them for the final three and a half years (one thousand two hundred sixty days) of the Tribulation Period.
In chapter thirteen we will get more information on why "the Red Dragon" and "the Beast" attack the woman and seek her destruction.
Of this Great Tribulation period Rebbe Y'shua warns:Mark 13:14 But when you see the abomination of desolation, that spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing where it ought not (let him who reads understand), then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.This is the "fleeing to the mountains Rebbe Y'shua references.
In chapter thirteen we will discuss "the abomination of desolation" in some detail so we wont go into it here. There is however a direct connection between the "abomination of desolation" being placed where it ought not stand (in the rebuilt Jerusalem Temple) and the fleeing of the Jews into the wilderness.
Of Petra we read:Isaiah 42:11 Let the desert [wilderness] and its cities raise their voices, the villages where Kedar lives; let those living in Sela shout for joy; let them cry out from the mountaintops!During this period a remnant of People Israel will be protected in Petra and "ADONAI will go out like a soldier, like a soldier roused to the fury of battle." From Petra HaShem will strike "out" against the enemies of His people as haMoshiach and his forces fight the global government on other fronts. To be clear, by "remnant" I mean those Jews who reach the saftey of Petra. This is not "code" for only those who "accept Jesus." ALL of those Jews who reach Petra will be kept safe there.
12 Let them give glory to ADONAI and proclaim his praise in the coastlands.
13 ADONAI will go out like a soldier, like a soldier roused to the fury of battle; he will shout, yes, he raises the battle cry; as he triumphs over his foes.
PetraWhen the abomination of desolation takes place, those Jews who make it to Petra will be protected for the remainder of the seven years.
As the Jews reach the safety of Petra:Revelation 12:7 There was war in the celestial realms [ouranos]. Michael and his angels made war on the dragon. The dragon and his angels made war....
Next time we will conclude the twelfth chapter of the Revelation of Navi Y'shua.
