Woman taken into the Wilderness...Dragon takes over the earth...
The Second Woe is Past and the Seventh angel sounds His Woe.

The first six verses of this chapter presents a vision which appeared unto John in heaven featuring two very important Personalities.

Both of these Personalities presents a wonderment...

First there 
is, Revelation Chapter 12: "A WOMAN CLOTHED WITH THE SUN, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:"

Second there is, a GREAT RED DRAGON, having
 seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads,"(Chapter 12)

The WOMAN is the Elect, the Church of Perfection, bearing the full fruits and characteristics of the Godhead, engaged to Jesus and is to become the Bride of the Son of God.

To fully understand the clothing of this Woman, it is necessary to study the symbol of the sun, which provides all energy and life to the earth. The sun is a symbol of God the Father. This Woman is clothed with the life of the Father, symbolizing all of His characteristics of purity and power.

She is standing on the moon, which receives Its light from the sun. The moon is the symbol of Jesus the Son, which receives His light from His Father. Thus, the Woman is standing upon the foundation of Jesus Christ the Son of God.

Psalms 19:1-6, clearly shows the sun and the moon as the glory of the Father, and which can be seen in the firmament of heaven. I will quote verses one through six. 
1.To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David. The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament showeth his handiwork.

2.Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night showeth knowledge.

3.There is no speech nor language, where their voice is not heard.

4.Their line is gone out through all the earth, and their words to the end of the world. In them hath he set a tabernacle for the sun,

5.Which is as a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, and rejoiceth as a strong man to run a race.

6.His going forth is from the end of the heaven, and his circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing hid from the heat thereof."

The heavens declare the glory of God through the sun and the moon, which God placed in the firmament, and the firmament shows His handy-work.

The sun uttereth speech by day and the moon by night. The sun shows forth the Father God, and His glory unto the earth, All life on earth exists through this sun.

The moon is a lesser light which is the reflected light from the sun to the earth by night. Both the sun and the moon uttereth speech unto the earth.

The sun is the symbol of the Father which shares the brightness of His glory. The moon is a symbol of God's Son (Jesus) Who receives a lesser light of God's glory and brings it to the sinful darkened earth through God's earthly Son....

Romans 1:20
 ” For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, EVEN HIS ETERNAL POWER AND GODHEAD; so that they are without excuse:"

This scripture refers to the sun, moon, and stars. They are the only visible created things that speak in the beginning of the ETERNAL POWER and GODHEAD, that can CLEARLY BE SEEN by the whole world today.

The stars also receive their light from the sun. This dismisses every doubt that the SUN
, MOON, AND STARS are not the TYPE and shadow of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit of eternity.

The moon, being the TYPE OF JESUS, God's Son Who shed His blood and Who is the foundation of all Christianity, and Who is the chief Corner Stone, of the Building and structure of the Woman, the Church Who is standing upon the moon, is rightly and clearly revealed in 
Revelation chapter 12:1

Rev 12:1. 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:"

When we compare this Woman's ministry with the statements of Psalms 19:1-6,that we just read, it clearly shows her glory, and Her knowledge, and Her language, and Her speech.

She is clothed with the brightness of God's glory in His full characteristics and knowledge, and purity, and She is crowned with the Leadership of the twelve Last Day Apostles. She had finished Her mission on earth.

The line of Her message will have gone out through all the earth, and Her words to the end of the world. In Them God has set a tabernacle for the sun. That is, God as the sun dwelleth in Them, which is as a Bridegroom coming out of His chamber, and rejoicing as a strong Man to run a race.

Her going forth is from the end of heaven, and His circuit unto the ends of it: and there is nothing that shall be hid from the power and glory of it.

The crown of 12 stars upon Her head symbolizes the Last Day Apostles Who are filled with the Holy Spirit, the Comforter, which God the Father sent after Jesus departed from the earth.

The Holy Spirit governs and leads the Woman, through the Last 12 Leaders of the Elect Church, In the Last Days. The crown upon the head signifies that this Woman is crowned with the Kingdom of God and ALL THE POWER OF HIS KINGDOM.

The stars are symbolic of the Holy Spirit, Who also receives light from the Father. One star signifies a Spirit filled Christian. Twelve stars signifies the 12 Spirit filled Apostles with the power to lead and govern the movement of the Woman, even as the 12 Early Apostles were the head of the church in Their day.

This great Wonder, which John visualized in heaven, was invested with the FULNESS OF THE GODHEAD BODILY, Who had just finished the Last Day ministry.

She shares the Light of the Godhead to the world in action. She will become the Bride of the Groom. This is a great MYSTERY, which foreshadows this Perfect Woman, Who is to become the Wife of Jesus, and not very many understand it.

Revelation chapter 12:2 "And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered."....

She was ready to give birth to a MANCHILD, Many theories have been produced 
by Bible students concerning this mystery, but when we consider ONLY WHAT THE BIBLE DECLARES and OPENLY SHOWS without changing the wording thereof, then we are forced to accept the actuality of facts and the true meaning that the WORD , (The Bible) means just what it says.

The Christian world has found no gripe or fault, with the scripture that declares that the virgin Mary was overshadowed by the Holy Spirit, and that the Seed was sown in the womb of a fleshly woman, and it produced Jesus, the Manchild as the Son of God. "AND THOU SHALT CALL HIS NAME JESUS".

Matthew 1:18-25
18.Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel,which being interpreted is, God with us.

Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.

For Mary to be with child in the flesh by the seed of one which was not her husband would be adultery. But since the seed was not of the flesh, it was concluded to be holy and righteous in the sight of God.

Joseph, Mary's husband not desiring to make a public example of Mary, was minded to put her away privately, but when he was informed by the angel that the Seed was sown by the Holy Spirit, he knew her not until the Child was born.

Jesus was the first born manchild in the flesh, having a Spiritual Father.

The Woman of Revelation chapter 12:1" 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:" was with Child.

She was pure and undefiled, righteous and holy. Sin had no more dominion over Her. She was still a fleshly body, but PERFECT and without sin: waiting to be delivered into the wilderness. It was time for Her to deliver Her Child.

This language is clear and simple. We are told here how She became with Child, and let us accept the open statement, since we do have an example of the pregnancy of Mary, the one who brought Jesus into the world.

The Lord says in 
Ezekiel 18:4 " Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die."

Since Mary was overshadowed and the Seed of the Soul of God, developed the Son of Man, and He was delivered into the world, can we deem it to be so out of order when God's plan of a new Creation, PRODUCED ON THE EARTH, requires His Perfect Woman to undergo a similar transaction as Mary did?....

Is this not the same method that God used to give life to His first created fleshly man? and did He not breathe His Own Soul life into Adam? and did He not provide that the same Soul life could be planted as a Seed in the womb of woman and she would bring forth another Soul life? and is this not a proven fact by Adam and Eve's producing children when Adam knew his wife Eve?

The production of all living nature is produced by the seed. No one is authorized to change God's plan because of the lack of understanding, but rather they are to accept it that they may gain greater understanding.

John saw another great wonder in heaven. A dragon, whose personality was in direct opposition to the Woman. The Dragon's personality was wicked. He was a murderer, a killer, a leader of all things, that were not good, and He opposed the God of Righteousness.

He is called the old Serpent, the devil, and Satan who deceives the whole world. He sought to overcome the God of heaven and rule in the eternity. Although He was defeated in heaven His mission on earth is the same. Up until the time when He becomes the Ruler on earth, His mission will be to overcome and defeat God and His Army of Elect Saints.

The Lord's ministry for souls will be completed and the Dragon's time will come to rule the earth for 3 1/2 years.

Revelation chapter 12:4-9 The Dragon and His angels are cast out unto the earth. His tail signifies those angels that follow Him. After He is cast to the earth. He stands before the Woman to devour Her Child as soon as It is born. But when She brought forth the Manchild, God immediately caught the Child up to His throne. This Child is later to rule the nations of heaven with a rod of iron.

Revelation chapter 12:4-9
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.

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.

And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

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.

Revelation 12:13
“And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child.”

Revelation 12:14 
"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."

Eagle wings is symbolic of the power of deliverance. Israel, when She was at the Red Sea, was delivered by the same power from the evil of Pharaoh, who sought to destroy her

 chapter 14 (See Here) and Exodus 19:4 “Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles' wings, and brought you unto myself.”

The Woman will have a place prepared by God, where She will be nourished the 3 1/2 years of the old Serpent, the Dragon's Reign on earth....

Revelation 12:6
 "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."

A thousand two hundred and threescore days is 1260 days, and 1260 days is exactly 31/2 years when we use the method of 360 days in a year. Three and a half years, and a thousand two hundred and threescore days is the same period of time which is also mentioned as 42 months, a time, and times, and an half a time.

Rev 12:15-17
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.."

Revelation chapter 12:11
"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."

The remnant of the Woman's seed, are the unwise virgin class. They were not brought into perfection and were not taken into the wilderness.

 seven heads seen upon the Dragon represents seven ungodly nations. They are Egypt, Assyria, Babylon, Medo-Persia, Greece, and Rome, which is the Last Day kingdom or power. 

Revelation 17
, says that five of these powers are fallen, one is, and the other is not yet come.

The great red Dragon, the old Serpent, the devil, and Satan are one and the same Person. They represent Lucifer Who became infested with the characteristics of the sin of the GOD OF SIN IN ETERNITY, and was given power to become the master of sin when He was cast out of heaven.

He and His angels were imprisoned in the second heaven where they were given a limited freedom to release the power of sin on earth and confront God in accusing His subjects on earth.

It was the second heaven that He was cast out of, and which is spoken of in 
Revelation chapter 12:7-9 .

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.

2 Corinthians 12:2
 “ I knew a man in Christ above fourteen years ago, (whether in the body, I cannot tell; or whether out of the body, I cannot tell: God knoweth;) such an one caught up to the third heaven.”

Paul said he knew a man who was caught up to the third heaven, therefore
 there is a second heaven. Michael was twenty one days in breaking through the evil forces of Satan to come to Daniel,

Daniel 10:12-14
12.Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.

But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.

Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.
