In Revelation 12, the Dragon attacks the Woman Israel several times with his “tail.”

-

The Woman Israel

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:

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

The Dragon

Rev 12:3   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.

Attacks # 1 and #2 – the holocaust and 1948

Rev 12:4

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

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

Attack # 1

http://www.simpletoremember.com/vitals/world-jewish-population.htm

In 1939, there were 17 million Jews in the world, and by 1945 only 11 million.

About 1/3 of the Jews were killed in the holocaust.

Attack # 2

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1948_Arab%E2%80%93Israeli_War

In 1948, Israel was reborn as a nation. Immediately, without delay, the Arab nations attacked, to “wipe Israel off the map.”

There were 7 nations (heads), but 10 groups (horns).

Three (3) of the attacking groups were either non-national Palestinians, or transnational Arab groups, so they were not countries, but groups of Arabs.

The others were countries.

The Child and the Rapture

Israel has given birth to individuals from both Christianity and Judaism.

The Child here is those who are born again believers in Jesus from both groups.

Rev 12:5   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.

The child specifically is Christ, but in a broader sense, represents all who are “one body” with Him by faith.

At first glance, it seems like it is referring to the Ascension of Christ into heaven, but with more consideration, the book of Revelation is about the end times.

So I would say this more accurately represents the rapture of true, tested, faithful believers.

This event also follows the death of 1/3 of the Jews, which occurred in world war 2.

With this sudden removal of some of her children, the woman flees to the wilderness for safety.

Note:

Not all “believers” will be raptured. This is the true Bride of Christ, not members of churches. The true Bride will make herself ready. Jesus only indicated one church – Philadelphia – would be spared from the trouble to come. All others were found wanting, and needed to repent.

Rev 3:10   Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.

Attack # 3 – Now that the Child is gone, the Dragon persecutes the Woman Israel after a war in heaven, where he is cast out. Flood of words.

The angels in heaven have been holding back the devil in a heavenly war.

Now that the born again church is safely in heaven, the devil is cast down, and goes after the woman.

The Child, for the most part, has supported Israel, and now it is gone.

This leaves the woman vulnerable.

Rev 12:13 ¶ And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man [child].

The woman is provided an escape into the wilderness, where God provides for her.

Rev 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.

The attack is a “flood.” From other references in Rev, such as the beast spewing out frogs from its mouth, this flood is a flood of words – words so inflammatory and hateful that they could kill, just to listen to them.

Rev 16:13 And I saw three unclean spirits like frogs [come] out of the mouth of the dragon, and out of the mouth of the beast, and out of the mouth of the false prophet.

This flood of words, which we see even now, is to influence public opinion against Israel.

Rev 12:15   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.

Attack # 4

It then says that the earth helps the woman.

Rev 12:16   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

So who on earth would help Israel during this attack?

Answer, the church that is coming through the Tribulation.

As people repent, and get truly born again, they realize the urgency of the attack, and step in to help Israel.

The devil then attacks these newly born again children of the woman – both Jewish and Gentile.

Rev 12:17   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.

This church will go through persecution and martyrdom.

Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and [I saw] the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received [his] mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

The beheading of the saints also gives a clue to who the horns of the beast are, since, unless something changes, only Islam beheads those it executes.

Who are the horns of the Dragon?

Before 1948, in 1948, and since 1948, the players have always been the same.

The 7 heads and 10 horns are listed above for 1948. They are all Islamic.

They will most likely be about the same set in the tribulation, with similar replacements, if there are changes.

“Who is the beast” is a different discussion, with all its perspectives.

The beast has horns, but the horns are not the beast.

  1. [...] here for [...]

  2. One boatload of God’s chosen escaped wrath in NOah’s day. ..One ‘snatching’ away of God’s chosen to escape wrath at Sodom. T00, there will be only ONE
    ‘catching up’ to meet Him in he clouds. The ‘unbelievers’ outside the ark were not given A SECOND opportunity to board the ark. God closed the Door.(CHRIST/SALVATION)..and it never opened again. The ‘unbelievers’ of Sodom who refused the ‘catching away’ with Lot…were not given a second opportunity of ‘deliverance’…but experienced the immediate wrath of God….destruction by fire and brimstone. There will be only ONE ‘catching away’…’sealing of the saints’…’gathering of the church’….’rapture.’ Afterwards, those left behind…like those of Noah’s time…like those of Lot’s time….will suffer the wrath of God as recompense for their unbelief….for their rejection of all that is Holy. They will be rewarded with what they chose…DEATH.

    • Is this a Christian site? St. Paul said there were no more Jews or Greeks, etc. The modern state of Israel is secular and has horrible human rights abuses…retaliating ten times over for every threat, full of over confidence in the might of American support. God loves all His children and has no human respect for DNA or political boundaries. Enough about Israel…how about Bhutan or the Lapps…they are no less God’s children.

      • Do you have any proof of the ten times more retaliation? Web site?

        Do you think that Hamas, and Hizboallah has anything to do with Israel having to fight so much? Iran supports those terror groups right?

        Let’s not get into the 8,000 rockets sent to innocent Jews. Do you have a rock to climb back under?

  3. The body of the serpent is….Isaiah 9-15..The ancient and honourable, he [is] the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he [is] the tail….The head being the ancient and honorable means he is claiming he is god…The prophets that teach lies are his congregation that teach he is god…..
    Deut 13-1,2…If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them;

    Conclusion… (1) And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: MEANS the TAIL (false prophet) leads one third of the stars into worshiping an imposter as god..Casting to the earth means they lose their spiritual condition and become earthly…James 3-15.. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but [is] earthly, sensual, devilish.

  4. Revelation 13… The ancient and the honorable he is the head and the prophet that teaches lies he is the tail…The beast’s heads are names of blasphemy…. cause he is claiming he is god… The 2nd earth beast is called false prophet… False prophets teach an imposter is god.. These false prophet beasts also caused fire to come down from heaven in Verse 13.. This means they deceive men into thinking the beast is god….as Elijjah did with the false prophets of Baal.. Buit the beasts false prophets succeed in convincing men that this beast is the god of Abraham…

    There is more about THE TAIL in Revelation 9-10, 19…This is the great army of false prophets of the APOLLYON..This great army of false prophets deceive the world into thinking an imposter is the god of abraham..That is what false prophets do..They also kill all who won’t bow to the allah beast who is claiming he is the god of Abraham…

  5. Antichrist brings a gospel….Gal 1-8 says it.. Though we or an angel from heaven teeach another gospel let him be accursed….2 corinthinas 11- 4,14 says it… Satan transforms himself into a messenger of god (mohammed) and brings another gospel, that teaches another Jesus (Issa) and another spirit of god…
    Zech 5-1,2,3 and Revelation 10, and Matthew 24-14,15 all speak of antichrist’s gospel…THE earth beast FALSE PROPHET CONGREGATION CARRY THIS FALSE GOSPEL TO THE WORLD…. and some in the world are unenlightned enough that they think allah really is the god of Abraham and that there are three Abrhamic religions.. This is only one…not three…

  6. if you put the key in place, everything will unlock! The same Hebrew word for curse in Isaiah 24:6 and in Zechariah, the flying scroll passage, is alah or allah. Islam is the endtime revelation that will help us understand the Scriptures. …the prophet that teaches lies is Mohammed, he is the tail…..please look up the Hebrew words for this verse. We are serving the ALMIGHTY who is YEHOVAH who created heaven and earth and wrote everything in Scripture that for our understanding…..he who is wise will have understanding. Be blessed today; make your salvation sure…make sure you surrender your live to Yeshua, whose name is salvation. …..watch and pray that you might be counted worthy TO ESCAPE ALL THESE THINGS that are coming on the earth. We are serving a GOOD GOD, a LOVING FATHER, who declares His perfect plan….that all men might be saved!

  7. Hmmm, only islam AND THE FRENCH behead their victims.
    Yes, the guillotene.
    Why not literal water? They’re building a damn in the Golan Heights …
    The earth is divided into 10 regions, by the RC church. Who also fits the bill of “whore of babylon”, bedecked in scarlet and purple.

    The devil took a third of the angels with when he fell, although the bit about him having a tail is still unexplained.We know he still has access to heaven, so bein cast out MAY still be to come.
    peace and love

    • This is interesting, as the old monks of the catholic church made prophecies the antichrist or false savior would be someone from France, (Look them up) chasing his crown a wanna be king in other words chasing his power. The French are currently doing great things in Mali right now and appear to be coming out in the name of Christianity against islamic killers at least. This would be certainly one to watch I think.

  8. I have a lot of problems with this theory.
    First of all, in prophecy a woman always represents a church. A beast represents a nation.
    The woman, clothed with the sun is clearly the true church – God’s people. At first this is ancient Israel, or Judaism, but even when there was o nation of Israel, “Israel” was God’s people.
    Then with the birth of Christ, as described in Revelation 12, “Israel” becomes Christianity and the woman (still the new true church) is pursued by the devil who was cast from heaven along with his ⅓ of the angels who follow him when Christ ascends the throne.
    Note that the serpent is directly related to the first beast of Revelation 13 and the fourth beast of Daniel. The devil is in league with this beast. It will be his tool in the tribulation and will produce the false prophet who will be a Christian or else none of us would give him the time of day.
    This serpent/beast will persecute the woman (true church) for 1260 years (time, times and half a time) That is exactly how long the Holy Roman Empire lasted. That church was protected and met in caves for centuries out of reach of the popes who pursued them.
    .
    The Jews were not in heaven in WW2 and were not in hiding at any time.

    And you left out the following:
    Rev 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

    Rev 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.

    Rev 12:9 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.

    This doesn’t sound like the Nazis killing Jews to me.

    And the fact that Jesus ascended into heaven does not also mean his church will be raptured before the tribulation. 144,000 will be sealed and protected during that time and they will no doubt preach the gospel and fight against the beast and his mark. Everyone else will have to hold on and wait for the last trump when Jesus returns and they meet him in the clouds.
    Will they even make it to heaven?
    Probably not, after all, Christ has retuned to rule on earth. Why the long trip to heaven only to come right back?

    Nope. This chapter is all in the history books now. It is proven prophecy, not future. It’s a done deal. Trying to find a link to modern events might be fun but will ultimately prove futile.

    • hi James

      The post would not make any sense if the woman was the church. But I am looking at it as if it represented Israel instead, and then it is a chronology of end times, leading up to the final days.

      I guess I like to view things different ways.

      if the woman is #1, then there is an interpretation consistent with #1

      if the woman is #2, then there is an interpretation consistent with #2

      if the woman is #3, then there is an interpretation consistent with #3

      So right now, you have #1, and I have #2. There may be another level of meaning #3. I like to put it all together, and it might all be true.

      The Word of God is not totally flat, I think it provides us with various depths of meanings, and so if we look at each depth, we finally get the big picture, watching many levels of fulfillment.

      When things start to happen, then we can say, it not only means “this,” but it also might mean “that” as well.

      I wonder if this makes any sense.? I love puzzles.

  9. Good, but tell me more of the
    Pale Horse in Egypt. Was it real?

  10. Last year on the feast of trumpets virgo fulfilled the woman clothed in the sun, and on yom kippor draco had a comet that causes a meteor shower called the draconids that only happen every 15 years and hardly ever fall on a feast day. From what I can understand it was the beginning of the tribulation. There will be 4 blood red moons on feast days in 2014 and 15 marking something big with israel and the half way point in march of 2014 and the rapture would be in 2018 on the feast of trumpets (the feast that know one knows the day or hour it begins)

  11. Revelation 12 is about the seed of the serpent and the seed of the woman. of
    Genesis 3-15….And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.
    Isaiah 14-29..for out of the serpent’s root shall come forth a cockatrice, and his fruit [shall be] a fiery flying serpent….This flying dragon is the seed of the serpent…..rev 12-9..And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan,
    The flying dragon is the seed of THAT OLD SERPENT…

    Rev 12-17 shows the REMNANT OF THE WOMAN’S SEED…
    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.

    It is called remnant of her seed because it is what is left of the stars in her crown after the dragon’s tails cast them down to earth….These are are dragged down to earth are the ones whose heel is bruised….Bruising the heel is what happens when they believes the lies of the dragon’s tail and their feet become unshod of the Gospel of Christ….

    The woman is hid away in the wilderness where she is fed from the face of the serpent.. This is fulfillment of Psalms 74-14.. Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, [and] gavest him [to be] meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.
    This is the bruising of the serpents head of Genesis 3-15… Bruising his head is what occurs when god exposes all of his lies right down to the Ishamel-Mohammed foundation….The woman/church gleans the real truth when this happens…

    and then friend the Islamic dragon beast who incidentally returns out of hell after the thousand years to tempt the entire world again.. Note.. It says after the thousand years….could be 1400 years… We are there now…

    This is the only chapter in the Bible that speaks of the SEED OF THE WOMAN…..

    Also This woman has the moon under her feet, but it is not yet crushed…This moon represents satan…Romans 16-20..And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The third of the stars have the moon under their feet too but it is not yet crushed.. This third fall down to the moon god allah dragon beast…. These are the men of sin of 2 Thessalonians 2….The moon god and his seven demons indwell them when they fall.. Matthew 12-43,44,45….Can you say Chrislam….

    The remnant of the woman’s seed and the Lord is who bruises satans head….

    Psalms 74 is also about the enemy invading the congregation…

  12. Surely the Dragons tail represents those wicked angels who followed Satan when he was cast down to this earth for rebellion prior to the creation. Rev chp 12 v 4, 7, 9. At the final judgement they will be “thrust down to Hell”.

  13. Mexican Cartels behead people.

  14. I just wrote some things explaining what i know about Rev 12 to my daughter… There is more ….
    The bible speaks of wonders in heaven and the sun becoming black and the moon turning to blood and the stars of heaven falling…Acts 2-19,20 and Joel 2-30, 31 and Revelation 6-12, 13..

    Some Christian ministers are looking to the heavens to try to divine these verses.. Look up four blood moons online….That is exactly what the astrologers did…they divine god’s message by the stars.. It is a no no according to the Bible..

    The answers are all in the Bible… For instance Joel 2…This chapter is talking about a great army that causes faces to turn black…This is the army of Rev 9 and it is muslims…Their face turns black because they do not have the light of god after they fall to the great army..Joel continues about the wonders in heaven and the sun being made black, the moon turning to blood, etc but some men like John Hagee ignore the first part of Joel and make up their versions..

    .
    Revelation 12- tells us of the wonder in heaven and the sun, moon and stars in the first sentence.. Pretty simple to connect to the aforementioned prophecies…
    Revelation 12 is about this battle of Joel 2…..In the very first verse it speaks of the WONDERS in heaven one of which which is a woman..This is the Christian church…She is clothed with the light of god aka sun light..See Matthew 17-2 where Jesus face shines as the sun and his raiment is as the light..We are likewise when we have his truths..
    This woman has the moon under her feet…See Romans 16-20 …where Satan is under our feet soon to be bruised…He is called the moon in Rev 12 because Satan was always the moon god of the astrology lore…
    The woman has a crown of 12 stars…This is the congregation. Of the church… These are both the wheat and he tares and are soon to be separated as Jesus said…

    The other wonder in heaven is the dragon with seven heads of Rev 12-3……V. 4.. The dragon’s tail which is false prophets of Islam that peddle the Koran as God’s words… See Isaiah 10-15 which says the ancient and honorable he is he head and the prophet that teaches lies he is the tail…
    The false prophet tail cast one third of the congregation (tares only) Down to the earth…..These are the falling stars of Rev 6..The moon/Satan that was under their feet now indwells them, hence the moon/Satan is turned to blood…The tares sun turns to blackness…..

    The remaining two thirds of the stars are caught away in the wilderness where they are fed from the face of the serpent… This actually means god crushes his head and reveals all his secrets to these stars that have not fallen…spiritual meat….

    Ephesians 2-6….And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:
    These events take place in the heavenly realm where Christians abide with Jesus… Plus Lucifer said he would ascend into the heavens and would be like god, meaning the god of Abraham….He is the dragon of Rev 12 and rev 13…
    The Bible says Lucifer will come as a man,,aka false messiah, aka Mohammed.aka his return/obama… Islam is the kingdom of Satan, a counterfeit of God’s kingdom….
    The tares that the dragon’s tail cast down to earth makes their appearance in Revelation 13-11…They are the earth beast that comes up out of the earth….The earth beast HAD (PAST TENSE) TWO HORNS LIKE a lamb but now speak like the dragon….because the dragon indwells these…These tares are now part of the false prophets of Islam….

    Also Genesis 3-15 is prophecy of these events…I will tell you about that some other time.. Too much spiritual meat could give one indigestion..

    This chapter 12-Rev. is also the great falling away of 2 Thessalonians 2…….
