WOMAN CLOTHED WITH THE SUN
Almost 2000 years ago, the Apostle John recorded a vision:
“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. And she being
with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 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. 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 YHVH, and to his throne.” (Rev 12:1-5)
This was the heavenly scene the night Yeshua was born around 4-6 BC. The dragon (Satan) waited to devour Yeshua as soon as He was born, but Satan’s plan was interrupted, for the man-child was born “who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron.” (Rev 12:5)
Some have interpreted the “woman” of Revelation 12 as Miryam, which seems plausible, for Miryam did give birth to Yeshua. However, reading further in the chapter, we know Miryam never fled to the wilderness for 1260 days (Rev 12:6), after witnessing the abomination of desolation at the Temple in Jerusalem (Matt 24:15). We also know Miryam lived during the time of Messiah’s First Coming, not during the time preceding His Second Coming, when Satan is cast from heaven to wreak destruction on planet earth and to persecute the saints (Rev 12:11, 17)
So, if the “woman” of Revelation 12 is not Miryam, then who? We need look no further than the dream of Joseph:
“And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I
have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven
stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his
father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed?
Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee
to the earth?” (Gen 37:9-10)
Joseph’s father, Jacob (who was renamed Israel), had no trouble understanding that the sun and moon symbolized himself (Jacob) and Joseph’s mother (Rachel) as forebears of a peoplecalled Israel, and that the eleven stars symbolized Joseph’s brethren.
The Revelation 12 sign in the heavens represented a time periodof some 2000 years, from Yeshua’s birth to the Millennial Era. The Apostle John would have understood the meaning of the sign, that from the descendants of Jacob (Israel) would come the man-child, who would one day rule the earth as King of kings.
It’s been two millennia since Messiah Yeshua walked the earth. As the time approaches for His return, have there been any signs given that we are close? The answer is YES! Yeshuaspoke of many signs (Matt 24; Luke 21) that He compared to birth pangs. In this article, we’ll focus on just two of them.
PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE
“Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth
leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these
things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Verily I say unto you, This generation
shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” (Matt 24:32-34)
Yeshua spoke of un unmistakable signal showing us the nearness of His coming. He said that when the branch of the “fig tree” is tender and puts forth leaves, know that His return is nigh. Again, allowing scripture to interpret scripture, we understand that the fig tree is Israel (Hosea 9:10). Yeshua went on to say,(paraphrasing) “The generation that witnesses the blooming of the fig tree, Israel, will be the generation that will witness ALL the signs preceding His return.”
THE BLOOMING OF THE FIG TREE (1947)
What would amount to a neon-flashing super sign happened inNovember 1947. To the chagrin of the Palestinian people and to the amazement of the world, the UN voted (Resolution 181) in favor of an independent Jewish State. Just as a fig tree puts forth leaves before it fruits, so Israel put forth leaves, and within just a few months, Israel was a nation again (May 1948). Against all odds, the fig tree had produced fruit – abundant fruit – for all the world to see. It was a mighty miracle from YHVH!
1947, the fig tree put forth leaves, signaling the start year of the FINAL generation prior to the Second Coming.
“THIS generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled.” (Matt 24:34)
So, how long is a generation?
“The days of our years are threescore years and ten; and if by reason of strength they
be fourscore years, yet is their strength labour and sorrow; for it is soon cut off, and
we fly away.” (Psalm 90:10)
A generation is 70-80 years. Applying this to the fig tree putting forth leaves (1947), we get this:
1947 + 70 years = 2017
1947 + 80 years = 2027
So, 2017-2027 brings us to the FINAL decade before the return of Messiah.
Back out a 7-year Tribulation and you get:
2027 – 7 years = 2020
Is there evidence to back any of this up? Any signs that we can point to with unequivocal confirmation? The answer is YES!! Let’s start with this…
SEPTEMBER 23, 2017 SIGN IN THE HEAVENS
On September 23, 2017 (3 Tishri 5778), there was an astounding event in the night sky that went undetected by most. It was a rare heavenly event that has not occurred for almost 2000 years, although some are trying to claim otherwise.
It was a Sabbath day, and not just a regular Sabbath day, but “Shabbat Shuvah” (Sabbath of Return). It is the Sabbath between Yom Teruah and Yom Kippur, a time of reflection, repentance and return to YHVH.
Our story begins around 3:00 am in the skies above Jerusalem. In what seems to be a celestial reenactment of Revelation 12, the constellation Leo, the lion, rose first, followed by the constellation, Virgo (the virgin), the only female constellation. As the morning progressed, the brightness of the sun made it impossible to see the image of Virgo, for she was completely clothed with the sun. The moon was at her feet.
By noon, the sun turned black as sackcloth, and stars filled the sky. just like on the day of Yeshua’s crucifixion. The sky was dark for three hours. Above Virgo’s head were nine (9) stars in the constellation Leo, which is the usual depiction of Leo. However, on this day, September 23, 2017, something unique and miraculous happened! Three (3) planets (Mercury, Marsand Venus) slid into position right above Virgo’s head. Mercury, Mars and Venus are sometimes called “wandering stars,” because they appear bright like stars, but, unlike a star, they do not possess their own source of light. They get their light from the sun shining on them. But, to the naked eye, the nine stars of Leo, plus the three “wandering stars,” looked like twelve (12) stars above the head of Virgo.
If that isn’t amazing enough, we can add the planet, Jupiter, and the star, Spica, to the mix. Jupiter is known as the “king” planet. It takes Jupiter about twelve years to orbit the sun and to move through the various constellations, spending roughly a year in each one. The star, Spica, was at the left hip of Virgo. Spica is the “alpha” star, the brightest star in the constellation of Virgo. The Hebrew word for “Spica” is “tsemach,” which means the “branch.” Jupiter spent nine (9) months inside the “womb” of the constellation Virgo. Almost two weeks before September 23, 2017, Jupiter started oscillating in the region of Virgo’s womb, finally breaking through her legs.
What an AMAZING thing! The September 23, 2017 sign in the heavens seems to be a modern-day replica of the Revelation 12 sign from John’s day. One preceded the BIRTH of Messiah, the other precedes His Second Coming!
Consider the symbolism of Rev 12 and the September 23, 2017 signs:
+ a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon at her feet, a sign of Israel
+ twelve stars over her head, represented as the twelve tribes of Israel
+ a pregnant virgin, who carries a “king” in her womb for nine months
+ the symbols of a lion, king, alpha and branch are terms used of Yeshua as the
“lion” of the tribe of Judah (Rev 5:5), the King of kings (Rev 17:14), the Alpha (Rev
22:13) and the Branch (Isa 11:1).
+ this celestial event took place over Jerusalem, the city chosen by YHVH
We get the symbolism and timing, but what of the meaning? How are we to interpret such things – and are we supposed to pay attention to any of this to begin with?
Regarding celestial events, some confuse this with a dark, occultic art called “astrology.” Astrology promotes the idea that the heavenly bodies affect and control human events. They can NOT. Astrology teaches that the position of the sun, moon and stars during the time of a person’s birth, influences a person’s personality, path and decisions. They do NOT. Astrology is FALSE teaching and is absolutely forbidden to believers.
YHVH alone has the power and authority to influence and/or intercept human events. He alone determines the time of a person’s birth and death. It is He who guides and leads us by His Ruach ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit). Let us NOT give to the stars the glory due to YHVH!
SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS
“And YHVH said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day
from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: “
The Hebrew word for “signs” is “ot,” (pronounced owth), which refers to a sign, signal, distinguishing mark, banner, token, omen or warning. “Seasons” (Hebrew moedim) refers to the holy Feast days of YHVH (Lev 23). As Genesis 1:14 declares, YHVH created the sun, moon and stars to divide day from night and for “signs” and “seasons.” YHVH placed the constellations (Hebrew mazzaroth) in the heavens for His purposes and plan. He created them and He calls them by name. (Psalm 147:4) There is nothing random about any of it. He placed the celestial bodies in the heavens with precision, orientation, alignment and order. The mazzaroth are very much like YHVH’s marquee in the sky. “Look at this!” He shouts, “Pay attention!” Rightly applied, we can view blood moons, lunar and solar eclipses, in context of dates and times as His message (or warning) about what’s ahead.
WEEKLY TORAH READING
As we ponder the message of the September 23, 2017 sign in the heavens, let us also consider the Parashah reading for that week. The Parashah tradition holds that in the 5th century BC, Ezra the scribe and 120 elders, created an annual reading schedule in which the entire Torah could be read in one year. The Torah was divided into weekly sections, with one section read each Sabbath.
The Parashah reading for September 23, 2017 was called “Ha’Azinu” (Deut 32:1-52), which is the Song of Moses. Parashah Ha’Azinu is a reminder to LISTEN to the words of theancient song. Moses exhorts the children of Israel to remember the days of old, how YHVH found them in the desert, made them His people, chose them as His own, and promised them a bountiful land. The song warns against the pitfalls of sin, corruption and idolatry. He indicts His people as lightly esteeming the Rock of their salvation, that Jeshurun waxed fat, forsook YHVH, and provoked Him to jealousy with strange gods. Therefore, He hid His face from them saying:
“ I will heap mischiefs upon them; I will spend mine arrows upon them. They shall be
burnt with hunger, and devoured with burning heat, and with bitter destruction: I
will also send the teeth of beasts upon them, with the poison of serpents of the dust.”
“I will spend mine arrows upon them… teeth of beasts…. poison of serpents”
Oh, if only Israel realized THEN what was ahead
The wonderous sign in heaven on September 23, 2017, had MANY messages. Clearly, it was a signal to ISRAEL, to the twelve tribes, dispersed around the world, as evidenced by its replication of Rev 12 (a woman clothed with the sun), that it fell on Shabbat Shuvah (Sabbath of Return) and the Parashah reading was Ha’Azinu (Song of Moses).
It was an announcement that something BIG was about to happen! Right around the corner would be the start of Tribulation (2020), the time of Jacob’s trouble, a time that precedes the SECOND COMING of Messiah. Important to note, because even though the Jewish people look for Messiah, they will be duped by the Anti-messiah, who will come at a time during the TRIBULATON. A great deception has been developing, for all the world will worship this imposter, this “beast” who is indwelt by Satan. (Rev 13:4)
The message of September 23, 2017, regarded the TRUE Messiah, Yeshua, as evidenced in the symbols of the constellations, the lion, king, alpha and branch. The sign was a confirmation to Israel that Yeshua is THEIR Messiah – they need look no further.
The message was one of repentance and return to YHVH, who has hid His face from Israel because of their sin, corruption and idolatry. (Hosea 14:1)
The message was about Jerusalem, that YHVH watches over her, that He is jealous for her with a “great jealousy” (Zech1:14), that He will yet choose Jerusalem (Zech 1:17)
The message was one of hope, for, in the end, YHVH will not forget His people, Israel. A remnant shall be saved. (Isa 10:21; Jer 30:7; Micah 7:18)
It was also warning of an agenda that will usher in the “mark” of the beast, an diabolical plot so wicked, so evil, that the world is still waking up to the reality and scope of it.
“I will spend mine arrows upon them… teeth of beasts…. poison of serpents”
Song of Moses (Deut 32:24)
That this warning was given way back in the Song of Moses is astounding and it clearly reveals that the entire Covid pandemic and subsequent shots are a JUDGMENT from YHVH.
The word “arrows” in Hebrew is “hes” (H2671), which refers to arrows, archers or a dart. Parallel this with Revelation 6:2, about a rider (an archer) on a white horse, who holds a bow (Greek toxon). Toxon comes from Greek toxicon (bow with poisonous arrows). The rider, who is given a crown (Latin corona), goes through the land (with his poisonous arrows) conquering and to conquer. This was the First Seal Judgment, a global apocalypse.
“by thy sorceries were ALL nations deceived.” (Rev 18:23)
WORD STUDY “sorceries”
Greek pharmakeia (G5331)
the use or administering of drugs, poisoning, sorcery, magical arts, often found in connection with idolatry, the seductions and deceptions of idolatry
The entire Covid “pandemic” was plotted by the Luciferian globalists long before the initial shots were rolled out. The plan was to get the shots (miniature arrows or darts) into the arms of a gullible and trusting people. It was a deceptive agenda of SORCERY. The “why” behind it is complex, but it boils down to a GLOBAL depopulation, transhumanist and tracking agenda.
“Vaccines are being used to harvest biometric identities
of everyone: Big Brother merges with Big Pharma.” 5
The globalists knew no one would willingly take the jab if they were aware of the true agenda, so they had to devise a cunning plan. A weaponized coronavirus (common cold) was used tocreate fear and incentivize people to get a shot that was deceptively touted as “safe” and “effective.” Under Operation Warp Speed, the jabs were rolled out in record time, without the normal decades of clinical trial and studies. Essentially, all of mankind became the lab rats of a few mad scientists. No one even knew or seemed to care what the ingredients were as the shots were accepted carte blanche by over half the world. In time, some brave doctors and nurses would ask the hard questions, discovering to their horror what those ingredients were. Providers who gave the shots were granted complete legal impunity from any adverse reactions or death under the PREP Act, 2
According to the NY Times (12/2/22) about 5.46 billion people have received a dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, which equals about 71.1% of the world’s population. Consider what this might mean moving forward. We are reading almost daily abouthealthy individuals, athletes, pilots, doctors, teachers, etc, who have “died suddenly,” leaving family and friends perplexed,with nowhere to turn for help.
How many of them got the jab?
MARK OF THE BEAST
Quite possibly, the jabs were only a precursor for the BIG plan.Consider the “Human Implantable Quantum Dot Microneedle Vaccination Delivery System,” 4 a new vaccine technology that is still being developed. It will be a “mark” or “tattoo” that can be implanted UNDER the skin (hand or forehead) and then read by a specially equipped smartphone. This delivery system is seen as an efficient and cost-effective way to vaccinate and store information under the skin. On the underbelly of the patch are hundreds of microneedles made of sugar. Using “snake fang”technology, 6 when the patch is applied to the skin, the tiny microneedles deliver their payload, along with an invisible quantum dot dye that emits a glowing red X pattern, 4 a bioluminescent enzyme called Luciferase – yeah, you read that right. Luciferase is the fluorescent enzyme that makes the firefly’s bottom glow. This patch can be used in conjunction with a digital identification program (ID 2020) and as a human implantable device for digital cryptocurrency (Patent 060606).
Don’t know about you, but this sounds a lot like the “mark” of the beast, prophesied in the book of Revelation. (Rev 13:17)
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a
mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell,
save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here
is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the
number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.” (Rev 13:16-18)
We are currently in the FINAL decade (2017-2027) before His return. Let us consider some of the events that kicked off this amazing time!
