Q & A: Rev 12:1-2

Question:

Rev 12:1,2

Do you have any comment about this text in relation to 23 Sep 2017. Virgo (Jupiter delivery) and crown in Leo?

Answer:

Revelation 12:1-2 reads, “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun and with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars, and who was pregnant and was crying out because she was having birth pains, and was in torment to give birth.” (Rev 12:1-2, LEB)

Many people believe this is about a constellation, or grouping of stars and planets, that will align at some point so as to cause the woman (the constellation Virgo) to appear to have twelve stars at her head, along with the literal sun and moon under her feet. In the text, she is experiencing birth pains, possibly being a reference to another heavenly body being located in the “womb” of the woman. Well, I have not studied this constellation, nor have I studied any of the constellations in detail, so I cannot give an informed answer on this, I apologize. I do not feel qualified to even begin to give an informed answer on this, so I will kindly desist. However, I would like to say that I think we are definitely in a season of great end-time events, and I actually base this largely on the lunar eclipses which transpired in 2014-2015, which I believe are exceedingly important. I am not the only one who thinks they are important. Ray Comfort also thinks they are important, and has mentioned them in his video, “Noah and the last days” (see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7bPCYizcFM).

The article on the eclipses which I first wrote around 2008, can be found here: http://www.fcet.org/eclipsearticle.

This article is with reference to some very detailed data provided by NASA, which I examined very carefully, and wrote a computer program in order to analyze. My findings are presented in approximately 62 pages of data, and can be found here http://www.fcet.org/eclipsedata.pdf. You will notice that in each of the sets of years 1949-50, 1967-68, and 2014-15, there were a “Tetrad” of eclipses, or a series of 4 total lunar eclipses, back-to-back, as it were (in each set, they are about 177 days apart from one another), and the first and third land on Passover (the first feast), and the second and fourth land on Tabernacles (the 7th feast). This occurrence will not occur like this for another (more than) 500 years (the next time it will occur like this will be 2582-83). This is based on pure math, it is not conjecture or speculation. The only thing that I have ever heard contested on this point is that not everyone agrees that today’s Hebrew calendar is accurate. So we do have some “nay-sayers” with regards to the eclipses. They are not in the majority, but they do exist. But apart from the Hebrew calendar possibly being off, I do not think there are any other valid reasons to doubt that these eclipses represent something serious, particular because the Bible does mention eclipses being a “sign” of the Lord’s return (see Joel 2:31), and the fact that the first two did happen during very significant seasons (Israel’s birth as a nation in 1948, and the reclaiming of Jerusalem in 1967).

It should be mentioned that there were eclipses like these in the past, but the previous set (before 1949-50) was before the year 1500. So these three sets of eclipses are very unique. My friend Richard Gagnon, who went to be with the Lord less than a year ago, and who was quite good at math, pointed out the following when he observed the three sets of dates, 1949-50, 1967-68, and 2014-15.

1968-1949=19
2015-1967=48
’19’ + ’48’ = 1948 = the year Israel became a nation.

For programmers who like working with numbers and strings, and for people who like patterns, those are the differences between (1) highs and (2) lows being subtracted numerically, and then their differences being concatenated together (as strings, as opposed to being added numerically). It looks good to me. But, hey, that’s not all that there is! The last of these eclipses occurred on September 28, 2015 (on the Gregorian calendar, that is).

On this day, a 15-year old secular Jewish boy was said to have been declared dead and then he came back to life 15 minutes later, declaring that he had had a revelation of the coming of Messiah (who was not identified in this encounter). However, he does describe in a lot of details things that he saw, which, after hearing him recount what he saw, aligns perfectly with the Scriptures in numerous places. He claims to have no prior knowledge of the Scriptures, being unschooled and untaught in the Bible, and not having come from a religious background. He talks about Messiah already being well known, he talks about Messiah coming and putting his feet on the Mount of Olives, he talks about Messiah coming and making war against a man named “Gog”, he talks about Messiah killing Gog in Israel, he talks about two dead men coming back to life, he talks about a great war coming in which 70 nations will attack Israel and in which “millions” of people will die (his words, not mine), he talks about the judgment, he talks about Messiah being able to “smell” righteousness rather than looking at the outward appearance, and he mentions much more still. The video can be found here: https://youtu.be/q_a5v2dbdBk. There are, in fact, numerous postings of this video, and if you would like to view some of the salient points, you may wish to click on this link, which starts well into the video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fe08-NUTqTc&feature=youtu.be&t=27m35s). So there you have two links to the same footage. Well worth checking out, in my opinion.

I have much more to say about this boy’s testimony, but not at this time. I do think we are on the “brink,” however, and that our world is “ripening” for some of the events described in this testimony. Let us be prayerful!
