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:

This woman is symbolic of all of God’s children all the way back in the first world age when all were Israel (so to speak) and were evidently divided into groups of twelve.

In the third world age that we will read of in Revelation 21, the Lamb’s wife (which is symbolic of all of God’s children who will go into the eternity by believing upon the Lord Jesus Christ) is the new Jerusalem which will have twelve gates and twelve foundations going full circle from the first world age to the third world age minus Satan as well as those who will be cast into the lake of fire.

And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

This age of salvation which is the second world age that we are now in became necessary when Satan rebelled and deceived a third of God’s children.

Rather than destroying a third of his own children, God destroyed the first world age and then created this second world age whereby whosoever will believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ can be saved from perishing in the lake of fire after the thousand years are finished and go into the eternity which is the third world age.

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.

As we will see in Revelation chapter 17, the seven heads of Satan’s one world system in this world age are symbolic of seven literal mountains (which are the seven continents of the planet earth) but here in Revelation 12:3 the seven heads are in not on earth but are in heaven with the ten horns being ten fallen angel kings that we will also read of in Revelation chapter 17.

In Revelation chapter 20 we will learn that when Satan gets released from the bottomless pit after the thousand years are finished he will go out and gather an army to compass Jerusalem with which is most likely the same thing he did in the first world age, only he gathered them from the seven other planets he had taken over during his first rebellion in order to attack Jerusalem then also which was obviously on the planet earth.

And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:

In other words: Satan deceived a third of God’s children into being gathered together to battle against Jerusalem.

This is also when the seven thousand Zadok fought against Satan and most likely the 144,000 fought against Satan as well (but not at first) while the other two-thirds apparently did not do much of anything.

The first world age was made without form and void and this age of salvation was created which is the second world age.

and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.

The woman at this point in the chapter is symbolic of Israel according to the flesh with Satan attempting to prevent Christ from being born throughout the centuries leading up to his first advent.

And she brought forth a man child, (Christ Jesus) who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to His throne.

Remember: we saw a vision of what happened when Christ ascended to the Father ten days before Pentecost beginning back in chapter 5 of this book of Revelation. He opened the seven seals and then fire of the altar was cast into the earth (as we saw in Revelation 5:8) which is when the Holy Spirit began speaking through the twelve apostles.

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.

These ‘days’ are in this case symbolic of years and the woman after Christ’s first advent is now symbolic of all the Christians throughout the centuries: both the natural branches of God’s family tree (meaning those of the twelve tribes of Israel according to the flesh IF they are Christian) as well as those grafted in.

From 1830 to 1948, the first four trumpets began to sound as we covered back in Revelation chapter 8 with 1969 being when the fifth trumpet began to sound but ‘five’ means grace in Biblical numerics and the grace period of the fifth trumpet will end at the woe of the fifth trumpet when Satan and his angels get cast to earth.

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.

At the woe of the fifth trumpet (at the beginning of the five month long hour of temptation) which is when the one world political system comes into being that we will read of in the next chapter.

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.

Most of the seven thousands Zadok being the armies which were in heaven which fought against the seven thousand fallen angels back in verse 7 who (along with Satan) will get cast to the earth when the hour of temptation begins.

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.

Five months beginning at the woe of the fifth trumpet with Satan not appearing as the antichrist until the woe of the sixth trumpet, two and a half months or seventy evenings (which is what the seventy years in captivity to the Babylon of old were a type of) before the woe of the seventh trumpet which is when the TRUE Christ returns.

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

Again, the woman is at this point in the chapter symbolic of the natural branches of God’s family tree (meaning those of Israel according to the flesh so long as they believe upon the Lord Jesus Christ) as well as those grafted in.

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.

With the seven years being shortened to five months, this ‘time, and times, and half a time’ becomes two and a half months.

These ‘two wings of a great eagle’ are symbolic of God’s protection from spiritual death up until those eagles wings are plucked (as you can see in Daniel 7:4) which is when most Christians become the whore of Babylon in the Great Apostasy with the obvious exception of the church in Philadelphia, as well as the two witnesses who are most likely Moses and Elijah.

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.

At 666 when Satan appears in Jerusalem as the false christ when his flood of deception will kill most Christians spiritually when they worship Satan instead of Christ which is what ‘antichrist’ means.

16 And the earth (which is symbolic of those the Holy Spirit will speak through during the woe of the sixth trumpet) helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood (which is symbolic of the deception) which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

Which means those who repent because of what the Holy Spirit will say during that time through those who get delivered up will no longer be deceived into believing Satan is Jesus returned but will have been grafted back into God’s family tree all were part of in the first world age.

17 And the dragon was wroth with the woman,

Because many will come out of the Babylon of the end times, hearkening to the words of the Holy Spirit and standing against Satan from that point forward, then being able to take part in the first resurrection when the TRUE Christ returns at the seventh trumpet.

and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

This looks forward to when Satan kills the two witnesses (who are most likely Moses and Elijah) and sends the Ezekiel 38 confederacy to destroy those who will be part of God’s family tree at that time.

Three and a half days after Satan kills the two witnesses, the seventh angel will sound and the TRUE Christ will return as King of kings and Lord of lords destroying Satan’s role of antichrist as well as his one world system when the battle of Armageddon and the battle of the valley of Hamon-Gog transpire at the beginning of the great tribulation which is the thousand year long day of the lord.

Again: after the thousand years are finished Satan will once again gather an army to battle against Jerusalem which is when he will be cast into the lake of fire along with whoever chooses to follow him (again) at that time.

Everyone else will go into the eternity which is the third world age.
