  • Maria on Revelation 12
    Who are the Woman and Child in Revelation 12? I think the Child could represent Israel, but not sure who the Woman represents.

    Maria,

    My understanding is that the woman represents Israel, and the child is Christ. My reason for believing that the woman is Israel and the child is Christ comes from Genesis Chapter 37, the story of Joseph and his brothers, where we get the sun and the moon, and the twelve stars.

    The sun and moon represented his parents, and the 12 stars represented the twelve tribes of Israel. This is referring to the nation Israel. And the Messiah was prophesied to come through Israel.

    Revelation 12:5 gives us the description of the male child: It says "And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron:" That's the Messiah in Psalm Chapter 2 Verses 8 and 9. And then it goes on to say that her child was caught up unto God. That's the ascension. And to His throne!

    And then Revelation 12:6 tells us that the woman (Israel/Jews) fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days, or 3-1/2 years.

    Many believe that this is the rock city of Petra that is already supplied with food out in the wilderness, so that when those who are sealed by God, the 144,000 especially, they will have a place to go.

    The Woman clothed with the sun is most likely the Holy Spirit and Gods protection around the Israelites and the Women having the Serpeant chasing her heel and her crushing his head in providing us with Jesus is possibly a reflection of the moon being under her feet in fact when the Jews were persecuted in the time of Tribulation it was by a moon worshipping people. The Tribulation started when then abomination stood in their holy Temple and stopped the daily sacrifice or worship in their temple and only Satan wants to stand in Gods place .. I'm just saying. As for end time only the Father knows:) Blessed is he who waits till the 1235 days and that's from about the time of the dome sitting in the Holy place Good Luck to you and look to Him Jesus who sits in the hand of Gods power. Amen

    Devon,

    The Woman clothed with the sun is most likely the 144,000 sealed for one thousand two hundred sixty days against antichrist.
