THE RED DRAGON: The Revelation 12 Sign (Part II)

After much prayer and diligent searching over the course of this past year, I offer to you a plausible explanation for the astronomical aspect of the sign of the dragon depicted in Revelation 12:3–4:

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.

I want to start off by stating three important things: first, this is by no means setting the date of anything like the rapture or the actual casting down of satan.  We’ve all noted with intrigue that the Revelation 12 Sign last year was extremely clear and unmistakable, but obviously not pinpointing an actual event like the rapture or the beginning of Daniel’s 70th Week.  These are major prophetic road signs telling us that the time, which is not exactly known, is exceedingly near.

Second, I have already explained in depth what the sign of the dragon represents and how its unique meaning, differentiated from the sign of the woman in labor, indicates that it does not necessarily require an accompanying astronomical aspect.  You can read this exegesis here.

Third, I have no desire to take credit for all of this.  A brother on YouTube got the wheels turning with his discovery that the Draconids meteor shower in Draco might be particularly stunning this year since the moon will be dark.  Also, I’ve seen several depictions of what the dragon might be (in terms of a sign), but nothing quite seemed to fit from my perspective—including several depictions that incorporated certain pieces that I’ll show below.

So, without further ado, I present to you what I think may in fact be the sign of the dragon, or perhaps something very, very close to it...

The Great Red Dragon on the Evenings of October 7th and 8th

It had greatly puzzled me over the course of the past couple of years that there are three different constellations in the immediate vicinity of Virgo and Leo that represent serpents (Hydra and Serpens) and dragons (Draco).  In Revelation 12 the devil is called both a serpent and a dragon (Rev. 12:9; in the Greek drakōn and ophis).  In fact, to the ancients a dragon was just a particular type of serpent.  They were both dangerous, scaly beasts with a penchant for eating flesh.

Long story short, the reason they’re close together and in the vicinity of Virgo is because they represent the same thing: the great red dragon (a.k.a. horn-hat and pitchfork guy who is headed for his doom).  The missing link, so to speak, was actually the constellation Link—I mean Lynx.  In modern constellation art it’s depicted as the wildcat by that name, but that depiction wasn’t invented until the 17th century.  It’s unknown what exactly it represented before then.  In any case, it’s actually a simple serpentine shape and it bridges most of the gap between Hydra and Draco as shown above.

To see the dragon, imagine that #9 is the very end of its tail and #1 is its heads.  There are, of course, no lines in space, but I’ve added a few red lines to help you visualize how the stars are aligned.  When you follow the principal (major/bright) stars from Hydra’s tail (#9) all the way around to Serpens (#1) it looks like a giant snake connect-the-dots and that’s exactly how God, for whatever reason, decided to arrange His heavens.

Make careful note that Revelation 12:3 explicitly calls the second sign in the heavens a “great” or “large” red dragon, which is megas in the Greek.  Whatever the sign is, you’d expect it to be big, powerful, and menacing—surely not just Draco, Serpens, or Hydra on their own, which by themselves aren’t much bigger than Virgo (Serpens is actually smaller).

Let’s break this down based on the points of interest noted on the above image:

#1 - There are exactly seven principal stars in Serpens.  These are the dragon’s seven heads.  They are right below the woman’s feet, ready and waiting to devour the male child, just as the prophecy foretold (“...and the dragon stood before the woman... to devour her child as soon as it was born.”).  Note that the dragon is only composed of fixed stars.  The dragon has been there all this time and has been waiting, standing before the woman, even back in 2017 when we saw the gestation and birth of Jupiter.

#2 - Corona Borealis is one of only two constellations that represent crowns and it just so happens to be immediately above and directly adjacent to the heads of Serpens.  There are exactly seven principal stars in this constellation, which represent the seven crowns that sit atop the dragon’s heads.

#3 - The constellation Hercules was another missing piece.  I had never noticed before that most depictions of the constellation show the mythological figure wrestling with a multi-headed serpent.  Even more—and this one should give you chills—the man in the constellation is almost universally depicted as crushing the head of Draco (as can be plainly seen in the image above).  In fact, the Wikipedia article states as much:

The traditional visualization imagines α Herculis as Hercules’s head; its name, Rasalgethi, literally means “head of the kneeling one.”  Hercules’s left hand then points toward Lyra from his shoulder (δ Herculis), and β Herculis, or Kornephoros (“club-bearer”) forms his other shoulder.  His narrow waist is formed by ε Herculis and ζ Herculis.  Finally, his left leg (with θ Herculis as the knee and ι Herculis the foot) is stepping on Draco’s head, the dragon/snake who Hercules has vanquished and perpetually gloats over for eternities.

This should immediately remind you of the very first prophecy given in the Bible, which foretold of Christ’s ultimate victory over satan—that He would intervene on our behalf and be wounded in the process, but would ultimately crush the serpent’s head:

I will put enmity between you [the serpent] and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.
- Genesis 3:15

Indeed the constellation has nothing to do with the half-man/half-god Hercules and everything to do with the fully God and fully man Christ, who created the stars Himself (Col. 1:16; Heb. 1:2).  It is He who stepped into His own creation to face down the dragon on the Cross.  He took the brunt of the dragon’s bite on our behalf, but came out victorious on the other side.

Notice that Hercules is crushing Draco’s head with his left foot:

Compare what’s portrayed in the heavens with the eerie Garden of Gethsemane scene in The Passion of the Christ where Jesus also crushes the serpent’s head with his left foot, symbolizing the fulfillment of Genesis 3:15 (starts at the three-minute mark):

This brings us to another interesting prophecy that further identifies the male child of Revelation 12 with the Church.  It’s Romans 16:20:

The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet.  The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

Under Christ’s feet?  No.  Under your feet—under the feet of the mystical body of Christ, which is soon to displace satan and his cohorts.

Lastly in regards to Hercules, I noticed that there are exactly seven principal stars at the bottom of Hercules so in my depiction I imagined them connecting the necks of the dragon’s heads, but that isn’t necessary.  The image in heaven is of the main head of Draco splitting into seven that terminate in Serpens.

#4 - As someone has already pointed out, the Draconids meteor shower will be at its peak on October 7th and 8th, one week after Shemini Atzeret, and the shower may be particularly spectacular this year since the moon will be almost completely dark.  The prophecy states that the dragon’s tail will sweep one-third of the stars of Heaven to the earth.  The stars of course represent the fallen angels (Rev. 12:7–9), but I can think of no better visualization than shooting stars, which look like stars falling to earth.

#5 - The talk of late has focused on the Draconids, but as I was studying this I noticed that three other meteor showers will be happening at the exact same time on October 7th and 8th: the Aurigids, Orionids, and Sextantids (I wonder how rare that is?) and all three will be directly along or in the vicinity of the dragon and its tail.  #5 is the Aurigids in the constellation Auriga.

Auriga is directly above Leo and Virgo’s head and looks like a doorway or portal into Heaven.  It is often depicted as a chariot.  Elijah was raptured to Heaven in a chariot of fire.  Auriga is equidistant between Draco and Hydra, the two serpents that surround Virgo (Draco to the left of Virgo and Hydra to the right).

Now let’s back up a few weeks to September 11th and the Feast of Trumpets.  At precisely 2:30 AM local time in Israel on Yom Teruah, Comet 21P will leave the boundaries of Auriga—appearing to exit this doorway into Heaven.  Why does that matter?  Because it just so happens that Comet 21P is what causes the Draconids that everyone has been talking about.  It’s these meteors that many have speculated represent the stars that the dragon’s tail sweeps down.

Perhaps Comet 21P leaving Auriga on Rosh Hashanah symbolizes satan being kicked out da’ door and the October Draconids (in convergence with the Aurigids, Orionids, and Sextantids) symbolize the dragon’s tail sweeping down 1/3rd of the stars.  I should also note that at the dragon’s widest point (from the farthest point of Hercules to the farthest point of Lynx) is approximately 120 degrees or one-third of the distance around the celestial sphere.  Furthermore, depending on where you consider the tail to begin, the tail could also be about 120 degrees in length.

Below is a picture of Auriga in relation to nearby constellations.  You can see the position of Comet 21P at 2:30 AM Israeli Time on Rosh Hashanah, the moment it leaves the doorway:

Notice some other things: Gemini is situated directly below Auriga.  The Son of God (represented by Pollux) has stepped out of Heaven to rescue and grant immortality to mortal man (represented by Castor).  He ultimately pulls him back into Heaven.

Additionally, notice that Taurus, which several people, including myself, believe plays a crucial role in signs pertaining to Jesus’ actual second coming to earth (see here), happens to be directly adjacent to Auriga.  This is similar to what we see in Revelation 19:11 when Christ is finally revealed:

And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.

Directly below Cancer is Leo and below Leo is Virgo.  Thus Cancer is a threshold of sorts, separating heavenly things from earthly things.  Lastly, notice that Lynx is shaped like Serpens and Hydra.

Side note: It’s interesting that Comet 21P was named after its discoverer Michel Giacobini, whom discovered it exactly 43,000 days (inclusive) of this Rosh Hashanah when it comes out of Auriga.  Michel = Michael and Giacobini = an old Italian variant of Jacob.  It’s the archangel Michael that kicks satan out of Heaven and satan’s descent signals The Time of Jacob’s Trouble.

#6 - This is the constellation Lynx, which, as noted earlier, was a missing link.  Remember that its depiction as a cat wasn’t developed until the 17th century AD.  It’s pretty much all that stands between Hydra and Draco and it happens to have a serpentine shape like Serpens and Hydra.

#7 - The great red dragon bisects the small constellation of Cancer, intercepting and corrupting God’s created order.  From the perspective of the biblical Mazzaroth, the ecliptic, which is the path of the sun, moon, and planets, along which the twelve major constellations reside, represents God’s created order on earth and eternal plan.  The entire gospel message is included in these twelve signs, along with the story of Israel’s redemption (see here and here).  The fallen dragon exists outside of the created order and is the great corrupter who influenced Adam to “break” creation.  Now that we can see what the astronomical aspect of the dragon is, we can see how the dragon has severed our connection to Heaven and has encircled and entrapped Virgo.

Below Cancer resides Leo and Virgo.  Above Cancer resides Gemini, which represents immortal deity reaching down to save mortal man.  As I noted in my article The Gospel in the Stars:

The constellation of Gemini is near-universally depicted as two men embracing after having been separated by death.  In Roman and Greek mythology, one of the twins named after its brightest star “Pollux”, was the immortal son of the chief deity.  The other twin was Castor, the son of man.  The mortal Castor dies and Pollux pleads with his father to grant Castor immortality and his father agrees—the two are then united in the heavens forever.  I believe this pictures God and Adam reconciled through Jesus’ death and resurrection

Luke even makes mention of Pollux and Castor, which constitute the constellation Gemini in Acts 28:11.

Above Gemini and just outside the created order of earth represented by the Mazzaroth and ecliptic, is the constellation Auriga, which as stated earlier looks like a doorway into Heaven.  The arrangement of the heavens is such that it looks like Christ (represented by Pollux in Gemini) has stepped out of the door into Heaven in order to save (and ultimately rapture) mortal man.  And on September 11th we see a depiction of satan—the corrupted cherub who overstepped his bounds as described in Ezekiel 28—being kicked out of Heaven through that same doorway.

#8 - The Sextantid meteor shower will be occurring at the same time as the other three meteor storms and it will be emanating from Hydra, the tail of the great red dragon.

#9 - The star 46 Hya / y Hya is the second brightest star in Hydra and represents the end of the dragon’s tail.

A Depiction of the Rapture?

We know what comes next in the story:

She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne.
- Revelation 12:5

The dragon can’t get its prey.  The male child escapes its clutches via a miraculous deliverance at the hand of God.  Jesus was never in danger from the dragon.  He laid His life down of His own accord (Jn. 10:18).  As He said, at any moment He could have called down twelve legions of angels (Mt. 26:53), but instead poured out His life unto death to save you and me.  And if we’re going to trust what the Bible plainly says, He was not raptured.  He ascended.  Different words in the Greek.  The male child is the Church (see here, here, and here).

God will keep His promises to rapture the Church: Rev. 3:10; 4:1; 5:8–10; 12:5; 20:4; 1 Thess. 1:10; 4:16–18; 5:4; 2 Thess. 2:3, 7; 1 Cor. 15:51–52; Acts 15:14–16; Zeph. 1:14–2:3; Jn. 14:1–6; Isa. 17:10–11; 26:17–21; 57:1–2; 66:7–9; Lk. 21:36; Deut. 32:21, et al.

So I want to bring your attention back to 2017 and the series of signs that occurred (particularly on September 23–24, October 13, November 13, and December 25).  You can learn about these in detail here.  In summary:

September 23–24: The Great Sign of Revelation 12:1–2

October 13: Jupiter leaves Virgo’s belly (did this represent the birth of the male child?)

November 13: Jupiter in close conjunction with Venus, the bright morning star, one month after the birth (did this represent the Church meeting Christ in the air since Venus is the brightest planet and is explicitly tied to Christ in Rev 22:16?)

December 25: Jupiter enters Libra (might this have represented the Church entering the altar or throne room of God—the next step in the rapture after the Church meets the LORD in the air?)

In retrospect, perhaps I was wrong about December 25th.  Libra is below the woman, not above her.  Perhaps we should factor in Revelation 2:26–28:

To the one who is victorious and does my will to the end, I will give authority over the nations—that one ‘will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery’—just as I have received authority from my Father.  I will also give that one the morning star.

Aside from guaranteeing the overcoming (sola fide) Church that they will rule the nations with a rod of iron (just as the male child does in Rev. 12:5), this passage also includes another promise.  The Church will receive the morning star.  Jesus Himself is the morning star, represented in the celestial sphere by Venus (among other stars and constellations since all of creation is pointing to Him).  On November 13, 2017 we saw a close conjunction of Venus and Jupiter, shortly after the birth depiction, and 1 Thessalonians 4:17 tells us that after the Church meets the LORD in the air “we will always be with the LORD”—never separated again.  Thus the Head (Christ) and the body (the Church) are inseparable after the meeting in the air.

For this reason, perhaps we should now be watching Venus to see the culmination of the story and lo and behold, we find two interesting things in 2018:

1. On June 21st Venus was in conjunction with the Beehive Cluster right in the middle of Cancer, crossing the symbolic threshold of Heaven and earth.  There was an unbelievable amount of rapture symbolism there that I wrote about in my article Stranger Things.

2. On Shemini Atzeret (or maybe one or two days later, depending on which calendar you use), just one week before the sign of the dragon, Venus stops.  Yes, you heard that correctly—well it appears to stop from the perspective of an earth-based observer like you and me.  This is called retrograde motion and it’s the same principle in physics that allowed us to witness the 9 to 10 month pregnancy of Virgo with Jupiter in 2017.

And where did Venus stop?  Right below Virgo’s feet, not that far from where the story left off on November 13, 2017 when Jupiter and Venus had their close conjunction (the meeting “in the air”).  For the next approximately 40 days, Venus will appear to travel in reverse along the ecliptic, back towards Heaven.  Could this represent the male child being caught up?

Thus, we can see now that all the key players are in place for the completion of the sign of the dragon.  Revelation 12:4 indicates that the dragon is waiting to devour the child, but after the child’s birth in v. 5, the child escapes to safety—caught up by God into Heaven.  The fact that Venus will be under the feet of Virgo, near and parallel with Serpens (the seven heads of the dragon) at the same time as four separate meteor showers are occurring along the path of the dragon, completes the picture.  The dragon is set to strike, but instead the child is caught up and the dragon’s stars “fall”.

So on October 7th and 8th this year we see: 1. the dragon (which has always been lurking “up there”), 2. four meteor showers at the same time along the dragon and its tail while the moon is dark, and 3. the correct location of the newly born Church (having met the LORD in the air after being born out of Virgo) in imminent danger of the dragon’s bite.

When we include the missing Lynx, which happens to have a serpentine shape, the dragon suddenly becomes a huge and menacing figure in the sky that has severed earth from Heaven and has wrapped itself around Leo and Virgo, imprisoning the people of God.  Yet I want to point out that Draco + the multi-headed serpent portrayed in combat with Hercules + Serpens and Corona Borealis, could by themselves constitute the great red dragon.  Taken together, these four constellations are about 120 degrees in length (one-third of the length around the complete celestial sphere we call “sky”).

Lastly, remember again that we don’t unequivocally know the day or hour and these are only signs, but the time is near.


Post A Comment


  1. Saw the following on the Dailycrow website ... Vice President Pence (Trump/Pence - Trumpet shall sound 1 Corinthians 15:52) has told NASA that U.S. astronauts could fly to the moon, orbiting the station by 2024. Even more peculiar, NASA administrator Jim {BRIDE}enstine says he wants to send humans to the moon ... {to stay}. What makes this so prophetically tantalizing is the first part of the chief's last name. {Bride}nstine wants to make sure that there is never another day when humans are not in space. In fact, the NASA administrator said, “we want lots of humans in space.” Another way to say space is “the heavens."



    This in light of what Gary is revealing in this and the previous article. Unbelievable. The prophetic hints are coming fast and furious. Everything is lining up. We're almost out of time it would seem.

  2. Wonderful Gary - the next 6-7 weeks are bound to be doozies!

  3. I see that Brad put up a post at the same time on comet 21p. A key comment from the posted video (and seems to align with other posts online) on Auriga in the Mazzaroth, is that the constellation speaks of 'the good Shepherd and his redeemed flock'. Others include the goat as being the group that goes through the tribulation however turns to Christ and becomes part of his redeemed. Will need to read further to see if there is there is agreement among authors with this...

  4. I have always considered the constellations as telling a FIXED story in the heavens because they are "always there". To me, Revelation 12:3-4 had therefore always to be of ANOTHER character. I don't dismiss the wonderful story told in the constellations but would like to bring the focus on sth "extraordinary" with regards to a SPECIAL "wonder / sign" in Heaven. I therefore will not cease to observe the MOVING / WANDERING star system commonly known as "Planet X" or else. It has come so intensely and extremely near earth that its debris and dust already enters our atmosphere, causing all sorts of strange phenomena and also havoc (EQ activity etc). For more information please check Dr Claudia Albers YT channel and especially notify the currently extreme magnetic influence with the example of the Fiji 8.2 EQ observed by Blue Koolaid Oh Ya YT channel in this 6 min video (MUST WATCH!!) = https://youtu.be/eMxa6pJDAUY

    I love your diligent work on the constellations Gary but they are pinned up there for a while already, we're just deciphering them now properly fitting into endtimes. But let's not forget the REAL threat which is the moving part of it and wasn't always there but is clearly connected with the First Zionist Aliyah in to Israel from 1897/98 on. That was the time around which this "red dravon" formation began to enter our solar system. MARANATHA!

    1. Exactly. Thank you sister.

    2. Yes, the constellations are fixed, but I believe the point we cannot overlook is the importance of the conjunctions which serve as "Pointers" in the fixed constellations to Highlight and Create SIGNS. Just as we saw the Rev 12:1-2 in a unique configuration because of the "Pointers" we now see the story of the Red Dragon being highlighted in Pointer fashion as well. I sense we are not in an either or, but probably a both situation. As I've shared before I do not doubt the impending approach and effects of Planet X which God foreordained before the foundations of the world as part of the Wrath of the Lamb and of God. My point has always been the timing and its "Event" aspect as opposed to a "Sign". Could its approach follow the Red Dragon Sign and signal the beginning of the Trib? Certainly it could. I do not believe God, in His infinite wisdom, would use something as a Sign which could be concealed by man - no matter how poorly. Over and over again we see it is not an either/or but a both. My Spirit witnesses with Gary's outstanding work as the Sign of the Red Dragon. However, imho, the Event of the Red Dragon being cast down more likely fits with Planet X and its massive devastation. I believe Gary has correctly captured and displayed THE SIGN of Rev 4-5 we've been seeking. Event yet to come - perhaps Planet X. Blessings - Sherry

    3. Diligent, painstaking work by Gary--thank you, brother! And I am in agreement with Sherry Griffin--"... the Event of the Red Dragon being cast down more likely fits with Planet X and its massive devastation. I believe Gary has correctly captured and displayed THE SIGN of Rev [12:]4-5 we've been seeking. Event yet to come - perhaps Planet X."
      How I love when the Body of Christ studies and shares together<3

  5. Amazing work Gary. I'm fascinated that the dragon is broken into 4 segments, just as was Alexander the Great's kingdom.

    1. Yes! And the four divisions of Nebuchadnezzar's dream: Gold, Silver, Bronze, and Iron/Clay (Dan. 2:31-45)!

    2. This article is a wonderful gift to the body, Gary, and I agree with Greg & Jeff about the powerful correlation of the 4 meteor showers to the other 4 divisions given in Scripture. Wow! Glory to God!

    3. And 4 beasts of Daniel, 4 horsemen of the apocalypse, etc.

    4. EXTREMELY prophetic sir, fantastic job tying it all together for us!! The time is very near.

  6. Amazing! What a blessing it is to see all the signs from the bible with our own eyes.

    Can anyone do or find a study on the individual stars of the great "RED" Dragon? In my 5 minute research I only found one star in Serpens that is a Red Giant which is also called the "Heart of Serpens". I just want to know why the dragon is red and know that God is purposeful and true in his holy word. I like to connect the dots to further confirm the truth :)

    Thanks Gary as always for a hopeful and compelling read. You are such a blessing!

  7. Well done, my brother! This is a stellar work.

    Brad of Rev 12 Daily, come in, Brad. I think this is what you've been looking for, my friend :)

    The story told through signs in Revelation 12 has been slow in developing (from our standpoint), but we are nearing the finale. Awesome.

    1. I'm in!! : ) One thought for you to chew on Jeff is from verse 4. I think the punctuation mark is key, after the colon is a actual event. before the colon is a cosmic representation. Not sure how this plays out in the original language... perhaps you can weigh in. Was there a division there when it was originally written?

      And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth:[that is the constellation/meteor shower] and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born.[that is Satan literally waiting to destroy us in the air(2nd heaven) when the rapture happens, necessitating Michael to battle him to allow for our safe passage, tossing him to earth].

    2. Hey Brad,

      The punctuation marks were added in by later scribes and modern versions for clarity. The original Greek text on papyrus did not have punctuation marks and was written in one continuous, uninterrupted flow to maximize the amount of space since it was an expensive process.

      So, I don't think we can rely on the punctuation to indicate a specific shift like you are describing. And, given what Gary has depicted in this article, it may be that all of verse 4 is a cosmic representation.

      See point #1 above:

      "There are exactly seven principal stars in Serpens. These are the dragon's seven heads. They are right below the woman's feet, ready and waiting to devour the male child, just as the prophecy foretold ("...and the dragon stood before the woman... to devour her child as soon as it was born."). Note that the dragon is only composed of fixed stars. The dragon has been there all this time and has been waiting, standing before the woman, even back in 2017 when we saw the gestation and birth of Jupiter."

    3. The word of "devouring" the male child "as soon as" i.e. simultaneously to the rapture has long time bothered me also. "Devour" (G2719 katesthio) can mean literally to eat up but also utterly destroy by fire. I was making a possible connection when watching R. Wayne Steigers most interesting video about the Egyptian eyewitness reports in the so-called Koldrin Bible or Bronze Book (he reads from it) as they witnessed the "Destroyers" flyby during the time of the Israelite Exodus: https://youtu.be/VzRyLt2_Low

  8. Excellent Job Gary! Really great insights and thoughtfully explained as always. This 2nd sign has got to happen one way or another... your breakdown is the most plausible yet in my opinion. It will be very interesting to see if we get a simple meteor shower or.... a meteor STORM in early October with the Draconids. The 1/3 of stars falling video you referenced sure makes the case that the position of the earth this year could produce quite the show...just like it has done in the past when we have been in similar positions relative to the debris field/tail of the comet. I sat outside and watched it last year and it was a dud, so I am very curious to see the difference, assuming we are still here.

    I added a link to this post on my site... I actually happened to put up a post on the same topic just a bit prior to you posting this!! God seems to be drawing our attention to this! If I get some time I may try to make another graphic more clearly showing the dragon as you explained it... hoping I get some time this weekend. Talk to you soon brother!

    1. Thank you bro! I was thinking of employing your awesome graphic skills. Check out the post again... I switch the picture out with a GIF to better demonstrate the position of the dragon and including the position of Venus as the newly born male child. You could probably come up with something much better (:

  9. About to read through this soon, but I immediately thought of David Flynn discussing the 3rd of the stars and procession, and stuff. https://youtu.be/zIFlsS8fx6E

    I love this site, btw. Thank y'all for what you do.

  10. I haven't managed to read Gary's work yet..... BUT, You all have to see this one and I know you'll want to: https://freebeacon.com/national-security/chinese-military-joining-russians-nuclear-war-games/ Can you guess the start date??? (The href is being rejected for some reason...so again, sorry I didn't link it!)

  11. Very goid presentation brother thanks for sharing maranatha

  12. Hey Gary,

    Here is one of the screen shots I made using Sky Guide while viewing Draco in X-rays (not in white light). This is that which I was talking about earlier...

    [image width="100%" height="100%" src="http://www.firstflightmedia.com/IMG-6442.JPG"/]

    Note how Draco *appears* to breathe *fire* when viewed in x-rays.

    As you know, the visible light spectrum is only a piece of visible light. A general discussion of the topic may be had here,

    Electromagnetic spectrum

    As you know, light is a type of electromagnetic energy and our visible light only a portion of what G-d spoke into existence in (Genesis 1:3)

    1. NOTE: I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the software that I am using. It is on my iPhone 7+ using Sky Guide 6.7.1 (299). I am aware of omitted sky features in this software so suspect any depiction and am looking for independent verification from other sources.

      Also of note is that this field that appears to emanate from the *mouth* of the dragon rotates with the constellation and appears to *flow* toward Virgo. I can post addition screen shots if desired.


    2. It does look like its breathing fire - even how it spreads. Pretty amazing!

    3. A PIN-POINT: We have seen several conjunctions that led up to the recent lunar eclipse over the middle east. The present night sky over North America features literally all of the visible solar system laid-out before us,

      1. Mercury - In Cancer
      2. Venus - In Virgo near Spica (meaning "seed")
      3. Jupiter - Conjunction w/Zubenelgenubi in Libra (a binary star)
      4. Saturn - In Sagittarius and the galactic plane near the galactic core
      5. Mars - Also in Sagittarius
      6. Moon - Waxing gibbous in Capricornus
      7. Neptune - In Aquarius (in the out pour of water)
      8. Uranus - Between Aries and Pisces

      Notable among these are the retrograde motion of Venus you mentioned above Gary but even the close conjunction with Spica on 01-SEPT-18 and a loop-back to conjuct with Jupiter again 22-JAN-19.

      12-OCT-18, Venus will be in Virgo near Spica with Mercury in Virgo nearing her feet with the Moon and Jupiter in Libra. Jupiter is leaving the altar (Libra) to continue along the plane of the ecliptic. NOTE: How this time frame falls right after the Draconid meteor shower but coincides with others like the beginning of the Arietids meteor showers. (See below)

      On the WINTER SOLSTICE Venus will be *before* the altar (Libra) with Jupiter and Mercury in VERY CLOSE CONJUCTION near Antares in Scorpius. This will be visible after sunset on that evening and a wonder to see!

      Saturn, the sixth planet from the Sun and the second-largest in the Solar System, after Jupiter has been stopped near the core of our galaxy. This places it in visual proximity (not actual proximity) to the super massive black holes that exist at the centre of our galaxy.

      Quoting Wikipedia,

      "Saturn is named after the Roman god of agriculture; its astronomical symbol (♄) represents the god's sickle."

      Source, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn

      Hmmm, sixth planet, agriculture...

      (Genesis 4:3)

      Cronus, (Saturn) in Greek mythology, was the son of Uranus. He lead his brothers and sisters, the Titans, in a revolt against their father and became the king of the gods.

      We know the seventh planet in our solar system as Uranus. Uranus is the only planet whose name is derived directly from a figure from Greek mythology, from the Latinised version of the Greek god of the sky Ouranos ("οὐρανὸς") or "father of the sky".

      Now take a look at (Revelation 21:1),

      Καὶ εἶδον οὐρανὸν καινὸν καὶ γῆν καινήν· ὁ γὰρ πρῶτος οὐρανὸς καὶ ἡ πρώτη γῆ ἀπῆλθαν, καὶ ἡ θάλασσα οὐκ ἔστιν ἔτι.


      Check-out the word for "heaven". It's actually the same word as Uranus, latinised version of the Greek god of the sky Ouranos ("οὐρανὸς") or "father of the sky",

      Strong's Concordance #3772
      ouranos: heaven
      Original Word: οὐρανός, οῦ, ὁ
      Part of Speech: Noun, Masculine
      Transliteration: ouranos
      Phonetic Spelling: (oo-ran-os')
      Short Definition: the sky, the heaven
      Definition: heaven, (a) the visible heavens: the atmosphere, the sky, the starry heavens, (b) the spiritual heavens.

      You didn't mention this above, you may want to add this to your meteor showers,

      Quoting Wikipedia,

      "The Autumn Arietids also radiate from Aries. The shower lasts from 7 September to 27 October and peaks on 9 October. Its peak rate is low.[58] The Epsilon Arietids appear from 12 to 23 October.[7] Other meteor showers radiating from Aries include the October Delta Arietids, Daytime Epsilon Arietids, Daytime May Arietids, Sigma Arietids, Nu Arietids, and Beta Arietids.[55] The Sigma Arietids, a class IV meteor shower, are visible from 12 to 19 October, with a maximum zenithal hourly rate of less than two meteors per hour on 19 October.[59]"

    4. Final note,

      There are too many data points, too many screen shots and too many cross references to scripture to list. And that's just related to the stars and the heavens! I am amazed at the shear volume of data available to us today!

      Knowledge has certainly increased!

      Yet, for all of this, NOTHING eclipses G-d's Holy Word. In it we have the fullness of the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ that,

      "All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made." (John 1:3 ESV)

    5. Interesting observations I noticed yesterday that after Venus STOPS on Shemini Atzeret and over the course of the next few days starts heading UPWARDS, that eventually it conjuncts with Spica. Pretty cool. The conjunction with Venus and Jupiter is also pretty nifty.

    6. Yes, Venus *stops* before the altar (Libra) and will soon return to Virgo again. Jupiter is making its final exit of Libra and will be out on or about 11-OCT-18.

      It's almost as if Venus came to see Jupiter off as it leaves Libra before it returns to Virgo. Or put another way, as if Venus comes to meet Jupiter before it returns to Virgo.

      That sounds familiar...

      Here's a screen shot from Jerusalem of sunset on 11-OCT-18. Ignore the time as that is Eastern time. I don't think the program accounts for a different location.

      [image width="100%" height="100%" src="http://www.firstflightmedia.com/IMG-6570.JPG"/]

    7. One more note...

      See how the MOON is in Libra? Too much symbolism and I really need to get to work!



  13. Thank you Gary! I believe you have now revealed and documented the final piece of this puzzle.

    I think our merciful God is going to allow us to see Revelation 12:1-5 play out in the heavens. First so that we know that we know what we are looking at and are ready to deal with pre-tribualtional wickedness. Second so that we may clearly warn the world. It is time! We will be caught up soon. But it will happen after the sign. Every detail is taking place as described. We have a peace plan on its way, we have the third temple being built, we have paved the way for the antichrist, we have made people open to receiving a mark, knowledge has increased, people love themselves like never before, love for others has grown cold (prophetically consider the events with ICE) that filled the American media, there has been tremendous “falling away” (prophetically we have seen planes falling, boats sinking, sinkholes, people falling from cliffs and waterfalls etc), militaries are being reinforced, global currencies are developed and will work with networked technologies, I could go on and on in great detail. It is time!

    Thank you for taking the time to put this together for those who watch. I am absolutely certain we are about to see a global event of great significance to validate the timing of these things. These signs must be in place in order to reveal the timeline and message for the final call.

    Here are some scripture references for those who need them:

    Daniel 9:27
    II Thessalonians 2:4
    Revelation 13:7
    Daniel 12:4
    II Timothy 3:2
    Matthew 24:12
    II Thessalonians 2:1-3

    1. You're most welcome. It was really the guy who noticed the Draconids could be particularly stunning this year + another person who noted Comet 21P is the Draconids' source. I started stewing on it all and was like "why is Virgo surrounded by all of the serpent/dragon constellations?" There are 88 constellations in the sky, yet all of these serpents surround the woman (except for Hydrus). And then I realized from tail to head they form a single giant loop. It's pretty cool.

  14. Earthquake uptick continues:

    7.1 strikes Peru: http://news.trust.org/item/20180824093100-s8ev7

    Near the top of Drudge: 50% increase in worldwide earthquakes over the past 30 days. For realz.


    1. Please watch #Blue Koolaid Oh Ya# YT channel about the 8.2 Fiji EQ a few days ago. Look what is in our MAGNETOSPHERE: https://youtu.be/eMxa6pJDAUY

      WOW!!! Imagine what this does else on the earth (and on human bodies)...

  15. @ Gary, thank you for all your hard work and diligence on this topic! I am totally clueless when it comes to the stars. I just can't SEE the pictures and don't understand how it all works. It just baffles me, much of it. I've been depending on other's ideas for this. But I just hadn't been settled about any ideas on the red dragon before...but THIS, my spirit's going "ding ding ding!! We have a winner!" Your explanation is clear, makes sense, and seems to fill in places where "something(s)" seemed missing in other ideas. Thanks again!

  16. Could anything MORE be added to what's going on?

    How about the return of harps to the future Temple in Jerusalem: http://www.prophecynewswatch.com/article.cfm?recent_news_id=2509

    [youtube width="320" height="266" src="mg6oLtqfWvA"/]

    1. Oh wow Gary, this is really interesting! Sounds like a last dress rehearsal for introducing NWO religion and setting up the abomination desolation temple in Jerusalem!

    2. Yes, that was my thought, too!

  17. GREAT STUDY! Thank you!
    I might just add that there was also “The Conception Comet”, Borisov C/2017 E1 in 2016 that after thousands of years of being virtually stationary in the Constellation of the Lion of The Tribe of Judah, left Leo and went through the belly of Virgo just before Jupiter entered her (Galatians 4:26) and went into gestation. Also, The Comet 21P will appear brightest in the sky on the night of September 10-11 and it will be next to the star ‘Capella’ in the constellation of Auriga. Auriga is “The Great Shepherd”. He is seated calmly above a rushing bull. He is holding a mother goat that has just given birth to two kids who are lying on His lap. In the Hebrew Mazzaroth, Auriga, The Great Shepherd is protecting the ‘kids’ from the day of wrath. Also pointing to Genesis 3:15 and maybe Isaiah 55:3 as well, is the bright star in the heel of Auriga which is called Elnath and means “Wounded”. Side note 1: September 10-11 is obviously Rosh Hashana / Feast of Trumpets but it is also the Islamic New Year, ‘120’ days from May 14, 2018 / the 70th anniversary of reestablished Israel and obviously the 17th anniversary of the destruction of the ‘twin’ towers. Side note 2: The 8th Day Solemn Assembly of Shemini Atzeret on October 1, 2018 is 2550 days inclusive, away from the 9/23/2025 which is The Feast of Trumpets and obviously, the 8th anniversary of the fulfillment of the Revelation 12:1 ‘Sign’. 8 being the biblical number of renewal (just like the 1st and 8th notes of the octave) or resurrection possibly pointing to the end to the 7 years of tribulation and the beginning of the millennial reign.

    1. "September 10-11 is obviously Rosh Hashana / Feast of Trumpets ... ‘120’ days from May 14, 2018." Let's also take note that the church started in the upper room with 120. There were initially 120 people in the Upper Room on the Day of Pentecost in Acts 1:15 who were miraculously baptized with the Holy Ghost and started the present church age of believers (later, the 3,000 were added to the church) … Hmmmmmm ....

    2. Hmmmmm....

      Revelation 12 Sign + 3000-days = Hanukkah, 2025 (Day 1)

    3. Hmmmmmm .... KETSHHHHHHH ... Was that another cold one being opened?

    4. If it wasn't, could conceivably be at least room temperature.

    5. Oh man, oh man, oh man... the evidence is building.

  18. This is amazing! Thank you for taking the time to explain. Last year, I looked up what falling stars would come after Revelation sign, and found Draco. I thought perhaps, last year's draco star show would fulfill Rev sign with dragon, but, your explanation and this year's alignments make so much more sense. We have been given signs for a reason. Does anyone know if other believers in other countries are seeing and posting these same revelations on internet? Hard to know if one doesn't speak other languages, but as I was praying last night, I felt led to seek confirmation that these messages were being given to whole body of Christ all over world, not just in English to America. Would be interesting to hear how The Lord is speaking about these times to other Christians world wide.

    1. Dear Susan, I'm a German believer and NO there's nothing comparable going on in my country. I tried to tell some people they didn't believe it and went back to sleep again. Everything "just normal" right here...

    2. Annabel...thank you for your response. Glad you are awake and watching and also, glad you have other believers through internet connecting with you. Hope this video and others about the days we are in go throughout the world...Wonder why it is just Americans, primarily, talking about prophecy matching current events and posting these amazing articles. God bless you and keep you!

    3. I support Pray4Zion, a Christian South African site - they are VERY aware of what is going on from a Biblical perspective and offer in depth monthly commentary.

    4. Well I'm In spain and nobody here believes that Jesus is coming back, most don't even believe in Him and look at me like I am mad for even talking about it. I'm so thankful for the Internet right now!

    5. Dear Susan, my guess on the "Pan-European coma" regarding bible prophecy is from church history in fact. I have pondered this strange development like you but then came back to study history clues in the book of Revelation chapters 2-3. I think Europe (especially Germany my country) had an important role within the Reformation movement mentioned with the church of Sardis around 500 years ago, when the world dominance of the medieval dark age of Thyatira the Roman Catholic church ended. But FROM THERE they would not develop further but just drop into "dead" religion again (Revelation 3:1) just like the LORD rebukes of them. The church of Philadelphia has developed from mostly English-spoken nations then, beginning with Great Britain spreading over to the USA by various missionaries around 1700 AD. From there, only real WORLD evangelization would start in fact! Everything that happened before was only some local / regional or national awakening in the church but not GLOBAL. Since then (with credits to the invention of industrial book printing along to Martin Luthers German Reformation!), the gospel has kind of exploded around the world and thus also Matthew 24:14 has been fulfilled until today through the use of all sorts of new kinds of media be it audio, video or print.

      The very last chapter of church history then is Laodicea which happens to be the most proudly deceived by self-esteem but yet the most "informed" church regarding bible prophecy since the additional endtimes information from the Dead Sea scrolls and the apocrypha books of early Christianity that were banned by diverse canonization were found, deciphered and again rediscovered (according to Martin Luther, there would not be even Hebrews, James, Jude nor Revelations in your bible canonized, imagine that!) and brought into the augmented knowledge and understanding of biblical world history and what the "days of Noah" really were like (Daniel 12:4). This only happened since 1947/8 AD when both the physical state of Israel was founded AND the Dead Sea scrolls were dug out. God would set the timer just here to have the endtimes generation from there be provided with the proper information they would need to expect His return within their lifetime of 70 years, correlated to the (probably) very last 120th Jubilee of mankind which ENDS THIS YEAR NEXT MONTH EVEN...

      I think these are some of the reasons behind why some nations really do not consider certain biblical information AT ALL - and like the German church in general having dismissed everything literally prophetic as some kind of "spiritualization" of scripture during their last bible critics decline from app. 1960 AD on - whereas mostly those who were influenced by the Philadelphian great commission in the English-speaking community (including all former British Commonwealth countries!) from that time on have begun to dig into these things deeper than others.

      Finally, it doesn't really matter if you're not watching that close like others do as it is (thanks God!!) not any of a salvation issue if you don't. So I assume there are still a lot of my "own" people that are asleep to bible prophecy now but yet taken in the rapture (by surprise then but that is not important). 1 Thessalonians 5:10 talks of another kind of "sleep" that verse 6-7 does even if it is the same word "katheudo" G2518. But the context tells us that Paul means it in a broader way than describing just the spiritual day-night example: so if someone is SAVED by grace through faith he will STAY SAVED if he literally sleeps or has meanwhile deceased or is not closely paying attention to endtimes bible prophecy like others. Blessings to you, sister! Maranatha!

  19. Keep in mind that deception in the Heavens has been happening for an unknown amount of time but certainly within our generation. According to evidence presented by Dr. Claudia Albers the sun we see in the sky now is a man-made simulator circling the earth within our atmosphere. We don't know Who has put it up there. Why may be easier to understand according to her evidence that our sun is periodically going dim or even completely dark.
    To keep the world's population calm and not calling on God, the simulator makes us think that nothing has changed. Because the moon and planets reflect our sun's light as opposed to the stars, the moon we see at night is alleged to be a holographic image.
    Our skies have been sprayed with metallic salts of aluminum, chromium, barium, and strontium along with other harmful chemicals or biologic agents since the late 1990's; in addition to being harmful, they keep us from seeing what is really happening in the sky. My point is that the picture we are supposed to see around the world and particularly from Jerusalem on November 7 may be altered or hidden.
    I have no doubt that the heavens will show exactly what Gary has outlined. The names of these stars and constellations have come to us from the antediluvian patriarchs to tell us the story of the Gospel and God's plan of redemption. The stories have been corrupted by astrology, but Gary's stories are accurate. The return of Christ is near. However, the spiritual enemy may well show us holographic images much different that what is really there to keep us asleep as long as possible. The technology is in place.
    Let's continue to preach His Word to those who are perishing before it is too late.
    Just doing a search for Physicist Report didn't bring up anything today so those who are hiding the sky are also hiding things on the net. They are on YT for the time being. Here is a link to the 318th story in the series. From there you can find the other evidence Dr. Albers presents. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PPNoXOa84Xg

    1. Paul, the information you are presenting is nothing more than a diversion from the truth. It is from Satan, straight from hell. A cover-up tactic such as you describe certainly would fit the spirit of wickedness that is in the world. However, there are so many flaws and fallacies in Claudia Albers’ claims and conjectures, I can not even begin to list and refute them here. The sky is not a hologram and the sun is working as designed. The evidence is literally all around you. May God bless you as you seek His wisdom in these things.

    2. Thank you, Daniel. I dont know how to post links, but if you look her name up you'll see its all click bait. A great many people post wild claims on YouTube because the more clicks, the more money they make.
      Please! Don't get your info from YouTube.

    3. Paul is correct and Dr Albers' research just makes sense. It is not only her observing these things but she's apparently the only PhD Physicist who can explain these things in the natural astrophysics. Jeff P, Matt Rogers and many others have also woken up to the truth quite a while ago. They are altogether believers in Christ as well. Mankind would be in sheer panic mode long ago if the "red dragon" would in fact be already visible. But the word of God says in Matthew 24:39 that "people DON'T notice UNTIL..." so yes there MUST be a cover up system working. At least TPTB are not able to manipulate ALL the evidence we have by observation from earth or satellite pictures so the truth is still available to those who have eyes to see. MARANATHA!

    4. FYI just go through Dr Albers' last video entitled "PHYSICIST REPORT 323: PLANET X SYSTEM GRAVITY: WHY HAS THE EARTH NOT BEEN DESTROYED?" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U5OxLVSIb_s you may learn some practical physics lesson applied to her findings from real satellite images. I cannot see how this may "be from Satan" as she's only applying well known physical formulas onto actual observations but this statement might rather come from deliberate ignorance about this whole topic.

    5. She SAYS she's an expert.
      I know a guy who is an EXPERT on Planet X, Nabiru, chemtrails, fake suns and the “fact” that all of the “images” of 9-11 are holograms. He’s an EXPERT because he’s ex-military, so he knows, right? It just makes sense that he would KNOW. His web site tells you how IMPORTANT it is to get the word out so, please, donate to the cause.
      Except he’s not because he’s really (literally, actually) an unemployed bar tender from Missoula who is always looking for the next con.
      People believe delusions because they "just make sense".

      I’ll never change your mind, but for anyone interested I post the following:


    6. Dear Just Waiting, Dr Albers doesn't CLAIM she's an expert if you have ever (!) closely listened to what she says. She has STUDIED PHYSICS for many years though which I myself didn't and perhaps you neither... So... This is not really an argument to dismiss her findings.

    7. ......and thus, proving my point, lol!

  20. Thoughtful. And brave. And possibly complete nonsense. From a gut level, there is something going on, in my opinion. Whether that is hiding plant xyz or distracting people from even something else. I do not know.

  21. I’ve enjoyed reading Unsealed since May. I started feeling the presence of the Lord hovering more tangibly than ever as the 70ty anniversary approached. I’ve been interested in bible prophecy my entire life, dating back to when I was a kid and used to spend days in my father’s church reading books in the church library and watching their collection of all old films including “a thief in the night”. I’ve always believed very deeply and the pre-tribulation rapture. In the last 10 years I followed closely the teachings of the Late (and incredible) Bible teacher Jack Kelly (Gracethrufaith.com). When he passed away I was absolutely devastated, but continued in my search to find resources to accompany the Word.

    I learned of the the Rev 12 sign. But I am struggling with one major point of contention, and I would really love someone to help me;

    The church has ALWAYS, ALWAYS been referred to in the feminine. We are the Bride of Christ.

    Why would a male child represent us? This does not seem consistent with Gods word, which is supposed to be infallible. God is nothing if not consistent. I am not trying to be contrary. I very much WANT to believe this. But this has given me so much pause in my Spirit. I do not feel like God would confuse us this way.

    Which is why I am here to ask your wisdom/understanding on this issue. Please help me understand. To me the boy child is very clearly Jesus. And the woman Israel. I would just be so grateful if someone could take a moment and tell me why, when God refers to the church in the feminine sense, in every mention...he would suddenly use a baby boy to represent us?

    I appreciate your insight and all that you do here! I visit the site multiple times a week.

    1. Hey Ashley,

      I started working on a response when I came across a well written article that I think will help you (See website link below).


      It's written by a Catholic, which I am not, but there is good content on the issue in question. In fact, you probably won't even need to read the entire article to see it.

      Take care.

    2. To put it simply,

      Christ was born 100% human and 100% G-d. We all know humans are made to be born head first. (YMMV) The head of the Church (Christ) came forth first with the body following suit. The body of Christ must therefore conform to the image of the head of the church being Christ Himself.

      Male head, male body.

      The relationship between the church and Christ is also likened to a wedding. It is simply another parallel where our earthly life reflects our heavenly one.

      Scripture may be seen in many varied angles. Like a diamond, light (truth) shines through the facets in different ways and reveals different qualities of the stone.

      Go to the LORD in prayer about these things and search out His word for more examples. If you do so with all your heart, I can guarantee that you won't be disappointed!

      Pastor Rich

    3. That was a really great article and gave me much to ponder!

      Pastor Rich, I feel as though I always diligently seek God and do so in this matter as well. My spirit has not found rest on this subject yet...whether that is by my own stubbornness or not I cannot be sure yet! I only know that I honestly seek truth and wisdom, and am happy to take it even if it means not aligning with my previous thoughts.

      As far as the article posted, I can see the angle. But that’s just it, it feels like I’m tilting my head to make the picture fit. Individually, I can see how we are all “sons” of God. But as a group...as a CHURCH, we have always been referred to in the feminine form. That’s why I have trouble reconciling it. The rapture is for (and is always referenced for) the SINGULAR Church, not MULTIPLE sons of God. So if the sign was pointing to the rapture, and the baby signifies the CHURCH, why would God’s word not be consistent with the gender it’s always referred by?

      Again there is much for me to ponder and continue to consider! Especially on how we are both the BODY and the BRIDE of Christ. Thank you for that Pastor Rich. That truly has sparked a new thought for me I am off to study these points and pray about these two specific uses for describing the Church, and what they might mean in terms of the end of days. I can see the analogy of the head being born first and the body second! That imagery really helps. I am taking this to the father!

      I really appreciate all the work that goes into this wonderful publication, and I have benefited greatly from it (and so have many others...and so WILL many others, once we are caught away to glory!)

    4. Ashley, you will find lots of articles alone on THIS website that are dealing with the "male child" church. Just do your research on the page! Blessings to you :-)

    5. Ashley, I'm really grateful to have you here! Thanks for reading.

      I once had the exact same thought - that the Church was Bride of Christ and never referred to in the masculine. It's actually almost completely the opposite. Israel is explicitly called the wife of God and New Jerusalem (containing more than just the Church) is explicitly called the "bride, the wife of the Lamb" in Rev. 21. The Church is *never* explicitly called the bride or wife of Christ. There are two analogies (Eph. 5:22-27, 2 Cor. 11:2), but they are not direct conclusions.

      Here is a quote from an article I wrote on the topic:

      "For starters, the Church is called a man in Ephesians 2:15. There are a number of metaphors for the Church in Scripture besides a bride. The most common is actually Christ's body (e.g. 1 Corinthians 10:16-17, 12:12-13, 25-27; Romans 12:4-5; Colossians 1:18, 24, 2:19, 3:15; Ephesians 4:4, 11-13). And what might come as a shock to some, the Church is never explicitly identified as the bride of Christ. The closest you can come to that analogy is in 2 Corinthians 11:2 and Ephesians 5:22-27. In the Ephesians passage the Church is likened to a bride in that that the Church is subject to Christ who is the head, but the Church is not said to actually be the bride. The only explicit reference to Christ's bride is found in Revelation 21:2, 9-10. The bride is the city of New Jerusalem, which is revealed after the millennial reign of Christ. New Jerusalem has characteristics from both Israel and the Church, with gates named after the sons of Jacob (men who died long before Christ's first advent), and foundations named after the Twelve Apostles. Zion, which is a prophetic term for heavenly Jerusalem, is likened to a woman in labor in Isaiah 66:8, so in a certain sense it is really Zion, the mother of all the saints both pre- and post-Christ, that is the wife of the Lamb. We need to remember that bride is just one analogy of many for the Church, just as body is. The Church is just as often compared to a temple (1 Corinthians 3:16-17, 6:19; 2 Corinthians 6:16; Ephesians 2:19-22; 1 Peter 2:5)."

    6. Hebrew is a language that is reflective of function. Western languages are descriptive, (male, female, smooth, rough, etc...) Each letter of the alephbet (the 22-characters being "aleph" through "tav") have a separate meaning unto themselves. But the meaning of each of the letters may vary depending upon the context.

      One of the single best places to learn this is the Ancient Hebrew Research Center. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!!!

      Here's a thought exercise to ponder...

      Why was the first recorded miracle of Jesus the turning of water into wine?

      If you're looking for symbolism, then start digging on the facts and fixtures given in the Biblical record: stone vessels (cisterns), water, grapes, vineyards, the harvest, etc...

      The Bible foreshadows things to come by "types". Types of the things to come. The Ark of Noah was a *type* of the Christ to come. Jesus is not a large barge and the Ark is not a human male. But the Ark is a type by function if not by form. Thus the connection!


      The Cana wedding is where Jesus performed this first miracle. Could it be a *type* or foreshadowing of things to come? What do we know from John's testimony? What are the facts? What connections to other points of scripture are found?

      Don't just take details as being illustrative to the narrative. Details have purpose and meaning. They are like hints pointing the way to buried treasure!

      An example,

      40 Then he took his staff in his
      hand and chose five smooth stones
      from the brook and put them in
      his shepherd's pouch. His
      sling was in his hand, and he
      approached the Philistine.

      (1 Samuel 17:40 ESV) records David as a youth at his encounter with Goliath. Notice how the stone are being "smooth stones from the brook?"

      The battlefield is a valley that is well known and can be easily visited today. Everything is there including the often dried brook he took these "smooth stones" from.

      Fast-forward to (John 1:1 ESV),

      1 In the beginning was the Word,
      and the Word was with God, and
      the Word was God.

      Who is John introducing? He is tying the term "Word" to the person we know as Jesus Christ. Jesus is the Word. The Word was with G-d. The Word was G-D. This is an established fact that John introduces.

      Drop back now to the prophet Isaiah and read his introduction of the LORD in (Isaiah 57:15 ESV),

      15 For thus says the One who is

      The quotation marks mean this is a direct quotation of G-d. By this we know who is speaking and who these two are. They are the Father and Christ! John calls Him the "Word".

      Isaiah continues quoting the LORD,

      18 "I have seen his ways, but I will
      heal him; I will lead him and
      restore him and his mourners,

      19 creating the fruit of the lips.

      Did you catch it?

      The LORD is "creating the fruit of the lips", A WORD, and that Word is "Peace".

      Isaiah continues,

      21 "There is no peace," says my God, "for the wicked."

      This is the closing of the chapter, but if you were to read Isaiah 57 from the beginning you would see,

      6 Among the smooth stones of the valley
      is your portion; they, they are your lot

      Did you catch it? SMOOTH STONES? VALLEY?

      Just as the smooth stones from the creek bed of the valley of the battle was Goliath's portion, so too is the portion of the wicked who are filled with their own pride. One is a *type* of the other! The Word was with G-d and the Word was G-D and the Word came bearing a fruit of His lips.


      Study well my friend!

  22. Mount Etna is erupting again and it is a bit stronger.


  23. Folks, have you thought about this before that the Rev12 sign is depicting a rapture story in the sky. We may not know the day and hour, but as body of Christ, we can know the start and end of the season that rapture will happen.

    There is a parallel in bible concerning the Bethlehem star that depict the birth sign of Christ (promise of a savior), wise men follow the star to understand when and where Christ will be born. At the same time King Herod (type of the devil) seek to devour the savior child as soon as he was born, but he was 2 years late. The angel of the Lord appear to Joseph in a dream to bring the child to a safe place to Egypt (type of the world), and the male child escape to a place prepare for Him after about 2 years.

    Matthew 2:14-15 “So he got up, took the child and his mother during the night and left for Egypt, where he stayed until the death of Herod. And so was fulfilled what the Lord had said through the prophet: “Out of Egypt I called my son.”

    Matthew 2:16 “When Herod realized that he had been outwitted by the Magi, he was furious, and he gave orders to kill all the boys in Bethlehem and its vicinity who were two years old and under, in accordance with the time he had learned from the Magi.”

    In parallel, The revelation 12 sign also depict a birth sign (promise of a rapture), after this sign appear, many believers in Christ (wise men) begin to understand the time and season of the soon rapture and many end times bible prophecies are being fulfilled, and in verse 4-5 of rev.12, the dragon (type of the devil) seek to devour the male child (type of the Church), and the male child is caught up to God’s throne, out of the Egypt (type of the world).

    Revelation 12:4 “The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.”

    After the male child (baby Jesus) escape out of Egypt (type of the world) // the male child (the Church) is caught up, the great tribulation will start (times of Jacob’s trouble) // Rachel (Jacob’s wife) weeping for her children.

    Matthew 2:18 “A voice is heard in Ramah, weeping and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children and refusing to be comforted, because they are no more.”

    Could it be that the rev.12 sign is depicting the rapture story in the sky, that tells us that within 2 years’ time span, rapture will happen after the rev.12 sign appear.

    1. I think you could be exactly right! I think by 2021 its likely the Church is in Heaven.

    2. KETSSSSSHHHHHH!!!! ... that was a cold, hard, refreshing, smooth can of prophetic WA right there Missy ... I'll have you know. Lips to the can all ... AND DO NOT WASTE ANY!!!

      UUUUUURRRRP!!! ... AHHHHH!!!!

    3. Signs from Heaven YT channel has got a new video released with the Bethlehem star topic... Go watch it!

  24. This is a great article about what the Rev 12 Dragon heavenly sign could be – thank you!

    I think it is also very important to consider what this sign means. Daniel 7:23, Daniel 7:24, Revelation 17:12, and Revelation 17:9 specify that:
    *heads=kings, mountains (most likely empires or nations)

    Revelation 12:3-4 pictures the dragon that is about to devour the child before it is snatched up to God in a certain way. It has 7 heads with crowns on each of them and 10 horns. I believe it is depicted in this way for a very specific reason.

    Contrast this with how the beast that comes out of the sea in Revelation 13:1 is depicted. The beast when it comes out of the sea still has 7 heads and 10 horns, but INSTEAD of the crowns being on the heads, the crowns are on the horns. IMO, it is a big clue to who and what is ruling at the point in time in each of these passages.

    The Revelation 12:3-4 dragon at the point of when it is about to devour the child is shown to include the 10 kings but the 7 heads have the crowns, not the 10 kings.

    As you know, I am post trib rapture believer and so I think this means that at this point in time…when the dragon is about to devour the child and yet it is caught up to heaven…the king of the empire head is ruling and reigning. This would be the AC who is ruling the NWO or revived Ottoman Empire. Since the kings (horns) aren’t depicted with crowns, I think they don’t have reigning power anymore. Revelation 17:12-13 state that the 10 kings “…for one hour will receive authority as kings along with the beast. They have one purpose and will give their power and authority to the beast.” I believe this is what Rev 12:3-4 is referencing.

    I suppose a pretrib perspective could argue that the kings are present in Revelation 12:3-4 but haven’t yet received any of their reigning power just before the child is snatched into heaven…

    Either way, the dragon is pictured to include the 10 kings and 7 heads with 7 crowns. I think this helps point to the TIMING of the rapture. The dragon has these characteristics WHEN it is about to devour the child. These earthly and political things are in place at the time when the child is snatched up to heaven.

    1. Please also consider "horns" as (new appearing) MOONS and "crowns" on the "heads" (POLES) of celestial bodies as AURORAS such as are now more and more often observed on some of our knowable planets.

    2. I would like to add to Tracy's excellent and in my opinion spot on post. We ALL have different modes of writing. Mine is of a simpler mind considering the mind I have.

      In my opinion...here is how I view this dragon in chronological order of its power being given unto it.

      Rev 17:8 mentions the beast ascending out of the bottomless pit. Verse 12 mentions its 10 kings, (horns) which have received no kingdom as yet; but they will receive power as kings one hour with the beast.

      Now Rev 13:1 is this very one hour of power...as the 10 horns now have 10 crowns!

      Rev 13:1 has the beast rise out of the sea, having 7 heads, 10 horns, and upon the 10 horns are 10 crowns. But the 7 heads have blasphemy on their heads.

      Now we go to Daniel 7:8...Out of these 10 horns arose another little horn, whom plucked out 3 of the 10 horns.
      This is the A.C. horn coming to power.

      Back to the end of Rev 17:13...These 10 horns that received power as kings for one hour with the beast now have one mind and give their power and strength unto the beast. They give up their remaining 7 crowns unto the 7 blasphemous heads.

      Now we go to Rev 12:3 and behold a great red dragon, having 7 heads with these 7 crowns, and just the mention of the 10 horns, as these 10 horns have given up their crowns They had for just one hour. They have given their power unto the beast.

      This beast is the A.C. that will go after the woman during the great tribulation, but she will be protected,,,so the A.C then turns on us Christians that keep the commandments and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

    3. Hi Annabel - while the "horns" may be new appearing moons, and "crowns" may be auroras, etc., those are still celestial bodies which point to the actual sign in the sky. Those are things we can look at in the sky to determine if the sign is appearing for us to see...just like the September 23rd sign was something in the sky for us to see.

      My comment above is in reference to what the sign actually means and represents. Just like the celestial objects in the Rev 12:1-2 great and wondrous sign in heaven of the woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and crown of twelve stars, etc., REPRESENTS something, so should the enormous red dragon sign.

      For example, we know the woman is the constellation virgo which REPRESENTS Israel. Therefore the enormous red dragon with 7 heads, 10 horns and 7 crowns on this heads could be the constellations, meteor showers, and comet that is talked about in this article. But what do they represent? Virgo represents Israel, we believe the planet Jupiter represents the male child (i.e., the head and body of Christ), etc.

      Daniel and John tell us in the books of Daniel and Revelation a lot of information about what these constellations/celestial signs represent. So I think looking at the meaning behind the sign...what the celestial parts (e.g., heads, crowns, horns) of it represent...we can gain a lot more understanding behind this red dragon sign.

    4. Yes Tracy I fully agree with you! :-) The HEAVENLY signs REPRESENT or POINT TO things in the natural happening on EARTH. "As above / in heaven so below / on earth" (this is scripture from Matthew 6:10 even if it is constantly abused by the Freemason Illuminati crowd this way). I have always considered this as a three part conundrum: 1) constellations and wandering stars (movable signs) 2) natural celestial events and 3) "constellations" in the earthly realm according to these. As I have learned from the book of Enoch, God created the host of ANGELS in number exactly equal to the bunch of STARS (real stars / planets) so I draw my conclusions from there. Blessings to you!

    5. Great - we agree these signs represent something on earth! :)

      So, the question I put out there is why is the devil pictured as an ENORMOUS red dragon with 10 horns (kings), 7 heads (kings, mountains/empires), with 7 crowns on these heads AT THE TIME when he stands before the woman wanting to devour her child?

      If you notice, he isn't depicted as just the serpent like in Genesis. Instead he is pictured like the beast that comes to power and rules during Daniel's 70th week!

      So, if he is already in beast form, with crowns on his 7 heads (and not on the 10 kings) WHEN he is seen standing in front of the woman, what is John telling us???

    6. Tracy you see that's the reason why I do consider this to be the celestial body named "Planet X" or else (Nibiru, Nemesis etc) because Revelation 12:3-4 depicts a SIGN IN HEAVEN and not on earth (although Rev13 shows the AC parallel). As far as I have learned, it is already "standing" (i.e. invading our solar system) since the first Zionist Aliyah (the "woman" Israel) took place into Palestine around 1897/98 AD. So this even hits the 120 years line.

  25. this article is so good...perhaps the dragon has been killing the man child slowly in the world right now. Snakes do constrict to kill, and everywhere Christians are being killed, the Middle East, China, North Korea, all the Muslim countries..and if we don't see how the pressure on Christians in American is quickly escalating to actual oppression and persecution we are blind. Perhaps this is the time for the rapture or the Dragon would actually destroy the whole church on the earth once America falls...just a thought.

    1. The Church has definitely been wounded over the years, but never defeated completely. Just like Jesus whose "heel" was wounded by satan, but He came out victorious after His resurrection.

      This is actually another (of many) important points that demonstrate the biblical truth of the pre-trib rapture. The gates of hell ***will not*** prevail against the Church, but they ***will*** prevail against the Trib Saints/5th Seal Martyrs (Rev. 13; Dan. 12; Rev. 12:17; Rev. 6:9-11; Rev. 20:4) who are given completely into the antichrist's hands. They will not have power to overcome, withstand, or restrain the beast and his kingdom, whereas the Church, for 2,000 years, has remained standing.

      This is also why 1 Cor. 15:51-53 and 1 Thess. 4:16-18 in and of themselves point to a pre-trib rapture. It isn't the same trumpet as whatever is blown at the end of the Trib, because Paul explicitly rights in both passages that there will be those still living who are changed/transformed. This can only be the Church because the 5th Seal Martyrs/Trib Saints are all killed and then resurrected in Rev. 20:4 ***after*** Jesus physically returns to earth.

      On top of that, if you take Rev. 19:11-21 chronologically, 1 Thess. 4 couldn't fit since that involves the Church literally ascending to meet the LORD in the air. By Rev. 20:4 the LORD has already descended (see Zech. 14). Even more - Rev. 19:14 tells us Jesus appears out of Heaven with his army on white horses. Exegetically these are not angels. The only fit is the previously raptured Church.


    2. *explicitly writes in...

    3. Gary...I am just going to question one of your points as I am not going to waste energy on the other points.

      But you said the gates of hell will prevail against the martyrs. Excuse me, but these martyrs will receive special rewards in heaven for being what they are. Just tell me how the gates of hell prevailed against them? Because they dies and receive special recognition for eternity? I would love to have that honor...to be able to pay the ultimate price for my faith in Christ.

      Have you ever watched that beheading video on youtube back channels of the 21 guys in Orange, kneeling down on the shores of the Mediterranean , hands bound behind their backs, one by one down the line their heads are being cut off. They were calm, not kicking or screaming, some uttering quiet prayers as they paid the ultimate price.

      I would call that the gates of heaven prevailing as those gates were thrown wide open as these martyrs are under the altar. When the 5th seal will be opened, they will cry out how long until their blood will be avenged? The answer is when the rest of the saints are raptured after the tribulation and this tribulation completes the rest of their fellow brethren that will be martyred.

    4. This comment has been removed by the author.

    5. I have seen clips from those videos, but have no desire to watch the actual beheadings of my brothers and sisters in Christ. I've seen the aftermath of many, including some from the Philippines. It's more gruesome than most realize.

      If I were called to lay my life down for the sake of Christ and the gospel I pray God would give me the courage to do so with honor and with a powerful testimony. I pray I would be able to count it joy.

      I've had a number of trials and tribulations in my life and in retrospect am able to count many of them joy to be able, in certain ways, to suffer as Christ did.

      However, I don't *need* those sufferings and neither do any of our brothers or sisters. We all simply need Christ and the sufferings He endured. By HIS wounds are we healed. Not by our own.

      Don't seek martyrdom for glory or self-aggrandizement. The glory of our lives is all God's whether we are martyred or not.

      Aside from disbelieving God's numerous promises to the Church and the plain, chronological order of Revelation 19-21, here is another thing I can't seem to reconcile with the post-trib view:

      We are told that the Tribulation period will be the worst time in human history (Mt. 24:21). That necessarily means worse than worldwide violence in the days of Noah. Worse than a global, worldwide flood that destroyed all humankind and all flesh upon the earth.

      Yet in the NT we are repeatedly told to long for and encourage one another unto the Day of Christ. Yet the Prophet Amos said, "Woe to you who long for the day of the LORD! Why do you long for the day of the LORD? That day will be darkness, not light."

      I've encountered many post-tribbers who label us cowards, escapists, deceivers, etc. Then they tell us that Christians have always been persecuted and shouldn't expect to escape persecution and tribulation. They bring up the early Church, many of whom were persecuted, burned at the stake, devoured by lions, etc. We should expect the same, thus we'll be going through Daniel's 70th Week.

      There's just one very glaring problem: in every generation of Christians, more survived than were martyred. That includes the early Church. For every Peter (who was crucified upside down) there was a John who lived out his long years. In fact, part of Jesus' prophecy in Luke 21 was given so the Church would escape from Jerusalem and Judea in 69-70 AD before Titus' armies destroyed the place. Not one Christian was killed because they heeded Christ's warning.

      Likewise, many Christians were martyred in Rome under Nero's great persecution, but many, many more survived, living out long lives in Asia Minor, Syria, and North Africa.

      And from about 250 AD to 1100 AD the Church was relatively unscathed.

      Daniel's 70th Week is a very unique period of time in human history. It will involve temptation like you've never seen, including the choice of taking the mark, which makes one irredeemable. It involves 21 specific judgments unleashed by God and His angels, many of which effect the whole world.

      No previous generation of Christians had to endure such a tribulation, so why would the final generation of Christians be any different? Putting the Church through Daniel's 70th Week would mean the final generation of Christians must undergo the worst period (by far) in all of human history, a period specifically set aside to judge the entire earth and redeem ISRAEL, and yet no other generation of believers had to suffer the same. It doesn't make sense and it doesn't fit with the prophetic templates we've already seen in God's Word. That's just one example of how the post-trib view is biblically contradictory, imho.

    6. Dear Phil, your description about the development and decline of the church on earth is a good point. You just have to consider the same development mirrored in Heaven (space realm). So if the "red dragon" system has now invaded our solar system for about 120 years and does NOT seem to just be a fly-by like there was in the past but this time is going to STAY there it will certainly utterly DESTROY earth by either collision, meteor / asteroid impact or by kicking it out of orbit magnetically. That's the reason why not only earth but also the heavens must be made anew completely and ONLY God can do anything about it to rescue mankind by shortening the days or else nobody would survive. Matthew 24:22

  28. Gary,

    I have no idea how you have time to write all of these articles, but I'm grateful that you do. Keep up the great work!


    P.S. Yes, I would enjoy getting the local group again like we did last year!

    1. Lol... sometimes I just have to make time. This one involved quite a bit of research followed by many hours of punching the keyboard Thursday night... it wasn't until past midnight I finally had this thing published. And then people were telling me Brad had posted something similar just 1.5 hours earlier and I had no idea.

  30. Thought this was an interesting discovery from Ally on the forum. She noticed that the Ring of Fire is remarkably similar in shape to the image of the dragon I posted:

    1. Lite bite: This past week during the hours with my grandchildren after the baby was born, we all watched ‘the Incredibles,’ a cartoon about superheroes rejected by society. Their arch-enemy’s headquarters was a hellish place under a volcano. When the heroes went there on a mission contrived by the enemy, their flying vehicle transformed into a submarine and went to the base of the fiery mountain. From there, too many ‘coincidences,’ from visuals to sound bites, to count. How are cartoonists so well informed???

    2. Now I’m seeing a snake coiled protectively around its nest creating a no-pass zone around her offspring. And also thinking about how HI has been the alternative Eden for so many.

    THE TALE OF THE DRAGON - The Dave Dobbs 50th birthday party show (the AGM) 8/23/2018

  37. Hi Bro.Gary! Thank You for this and every encouraging study! For sharing all the Lord has shown you! Ever I am encouraged reading Unsealed! Here is some encouragement for watching this very day!
    We are definitely in the year of His Return (Wayyyy too much evidence now to have any doubt about 2018!) and definitely in the season Jesus said to watch in, Summer! So the fall equinox is too late. Also at that equinox the official Year of Peace and Safety ends. "While they are saying peace and safety" .. Also right now the world is watching the U.S. say Peace (deal being rolled out in September) and Netanyahu just declared a huge multi-year Safety initiative...
    To further hem in the date, there may be clues to August! Song of Solomon is all about the Bride and Bridegroom and rapture and only has 8 chapters! And chapter 8 has 14 verses, 14 meaning deliverance.
    Jeremiah 8:20 is one of several summer rapture references. "The harvest is past, Summer is ended,.." Notice it is chapter 8 . And the word "ended" is the 8th word.
    Noah is the 8th person! There were 8 in the ark!
    The Lord said when you see all these things "begin" to come to pass to look up! 8 is the number of new beginnings!
    Elul, which is the month of bridal preparation, began August 11th. Today is the 17th day of Elul. 17 is victory!
    Today is the 68th day of summer and that's 4•17! In Strong's 417 is strong wind and fig.. As a fig tree casteth her untimely figs when shaken by a mighty wind..?
    Also Bro. Billy Graham (our generation 's Noah, born 11/7) preached 417 revivals and died in the 17th day of his 4th month and his daughter Miss Anne read I Thessalonians 4:16-17 as she told the world Jesus is coming! at his funeral. As she spoke a strong wind blew her handkerchief away (watch the vid on YouTube).
    Also today/tomorrow is Israel's 4th month 16/17th day of her 70th year. Our major rapture verses I Thessalonians 4:16-17!
    Remember the storm named Noah which fell exactly on 2/17 (a major heads up for us!)? Well I am ever alert with the Lord to the number 26. The 26th time Noah's name is mentioned is where it says "Noah knew". Today is 2 to the 6th power times 3 (divine completion and resurrection) since 2/17! A 26 that literally looks up!
    Also today is 11 months and 11 days (11 being judgement) since the year of peace and safety declaration (two days after the woman in travail sign). While they are saying peace and safety sudden destruction comes as travail on a woman with child.
    Also today is already Tuesday in Israel. The 3rd day! And their traditional wedding day! And the day of Jesus 's first miracle!
    Also if the moon represents the Bride of Christ I've wondered if the Lord will return upon a full moon representing the fullness of the Gentiles come in.. Well last night was the last full moon of August and was the Sturgeon full moon. Well that's a fish yeah? Just sayin... :)
    Know how Jesus said to say not there are yet four months to harvest? The fields are white now?.. Well isn't it interesting September is 4 months after Israel's blossoming in May. We just might be gone before September.
    (Interesting note.. Here in America Sep 3rd is "Labor" Day and we have a tradition of wearing no white after Labor Day..) I think of how before she labored she brought forth..
    Right on twinkling time The Lord Jesus will be here! Oh I hope I hope it's now! August! Today or tomorrow!
    Watching with you and us all in complete confidence all the way Home!

    1. (P.s. Meant to say the year of peace and safety declaration came two days before not after the woman in travail sign:) )

  39. Hey Gary, check out this article: (notice how the red portion of the visualization looks a lot like the red dragon rendering at the top or your article above?)


    1. I see what you're saying - creepy!!

    2. Funny, I see someone found that the ring of fire is also analogous. Interesting.

  40. Russia to mobilize 300,000 troops NEXT MONTH in largest war games in 40 years:


    1. EHEM! EHEM! ... COUGH! COUGH!

    2. ...And you wrote that more than a year ago! Wowza!

    3. I think the prophetic winds were blowing in that direction for the past 10 years at least ever since the Russian Georgia event in 2008. Just goes to show us the nearness of this event.

  41. From May 14, 1948 to September 11, 2018 is exactly 70 years, 3 months, 29 days (inclusive). 923.

    September 11, 3 BC - Possible conception or birth of Christ, or, at the very least, a key part of the Star of Bethlehem

    September 11, 1985 - Spacecraft first encounters Comet 21P, the source of the Draconids

    September 11, 2001 - The Twin Towers fall

    September 11, 2018 - ???

    From September 23, 2017 to September 11, 2018 is 354 days exactly. Strong's 354 is "a taking up, lifting up."

    The word is used once in Scripture:

    "As the time approached for him to be taken up to heaven, Jesus resolutely set out for Jerusalem." - Luke 9:51


    1. AND DON'T FORGET!!!

      The Spiritual Year 5778 is 354-days long!

      How long was the waiting period in a Jewish wedding for the Bridegroom to come for his bride? One-year. How many days from the Revelation 12 Sign to Yom Teruah, 5779?

      354-days inclusive. One-year.

      Even if you count non-inclusive days it's still one-year or 353-days. Strong's Greek Concordance #353 is,

      I have been asking, "May we understand this wait time after the Great Sign as being analogous to the period of time between the physical birth of our Lord and His moving to Egypt?"

      I have been looking at the skies one-year after the appearance of the Bethlehem Star last November...the Jupiter/Venus conjunction over Armistice Day that, I believe, may symbolise "marriage" or a "wedding". Some interesting conjunctions and motions in the heavens follow one-year on from that!

      There is a marvellous, if not striking, conjunction coming in late October, 2018. The Sun, Mercury, Jupiter and Venus will gather around Libra. Translated as a picture if you will...the Sun, centre and thus throne of our solar system, is before the altar (the constellation Libra) and is joined by Venus, the bright morning star (a.k.a. Jesus) while Jupiter, the man-child born of the Great Sign and taken up to the altar (being Libra), is joined by Mercury, the messenger (angel) planet between Libra and Scorpio.

      I may have a fertile imagination but it is interesting to consider. What we do know is this,

      1 The heavens declare the glory of God,
      and the expanse proclaims the work of
      his hands.

      2 Day after day they pour out speech;
      night after night they communicate

      3 There is no speech; there are no
      words; their voice is not heard.

      4 Their message has gone out to the
      whole earth, and their words to the
      ends of the world.

      In the heavens he has pitched a tent
      for the sun.

      5 It is like a bridegroom coming from
      his home; it rejoices like an athlete
      running a course. (Psalm 19:1-5 CSB)

      Break-out your software and start exploring what the stars have to say. They are the handiwork of our LORD and made for His glory!

      1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was
      with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with
      God in the beginning. 3 All things were created
      through him, and apart from him not one thing
      was created that has been created. (John 1:1-3 CSB)

      Please do not fear the numbers or the signs. They do not rule our lives; they declare the glory of G-D. Fix your eyes on Christ for in Him is the fullness of life. He is the Light of the world and will pour out His blessings of mercy, grace and wisdom to those who seek Him.

      We should never doubt His Word. We should never doubt His mercy. We should never doubt His grace. Even if we cannot trace the movement of His hands, we know the goodness of His heart.

      Let us rest in that joy and fear not the coming days. Let us rest in the LORD for He alone is good!

      The Bridegroom comes!


  42. Gary....Whats wrong with all these fascinating numbers and dates is when the date comes and goes,so dies my confidence in these interpretations of such. But newbies reading here will soon move on with reduced faith.

    We will still be here at least a few more September's, but not one here will acknowledge when each September comes and goes.

    World events are unfolding absolutely, but we definitely have more events before we go home

    1. I'm not predicting the rapture. I've made that clear ad infinitum. I WILL watch when things seem to converge. Rather the blood not be on my hands.

      "We will still be here at least a few more September's"

      Now THAT is date setting.

    2. Stan, fortunately Our Divine Shepard Oversees All. Peace, Trust Him. His Children are Fast Learners, Maranatha!

    3. Gary....What date have I set? I am the antithesis of setting a date...Just as Christ proclaimed he will not come until this, and this and thus happens.

      I simply am saying we have many many months...(42) of prophesy to fulfill if the A.C. desecrated the temple today.

      We are coming up on September 2018 which a year ago looked impossible to many. September 2019 will be here for us to see, but I am expecting much demonic activity playing out as this last year has seen.

      Time will reveal and we must be prepared always as any of us could die the next minute.

      I know I am a thorn here and with God as my witness, I am concerned for newbies loosing faith when all these amazing numbers come and go. They are a discredit to what scriptures say when they don't materialize.

      I personally learned from this with my own wife. I was hyped up over the blood moons...which by the way I know were divine signs, but man got carried away with these signs and I shared some of what they said with my wife.....although with my view that these are warning signs for trouble ahead, and not the rapture. She didn't hear my view but listened to the prevalent views and all those never happened.

      So when the Rev 12 sign played out in the heavens last year, I knew it was a divine sign absolutely, but never shared with her the we are out of here soon stories. She knew I studied a lot about it, but I just told her it's another divine warning sign for trouble ahead. She is very skeptical enough, and I am here to build her faith, which I am doing.

    4. Tests of our faith come in many forms. Leaning on our own understanding can and will lead to our disappointment. Learning to lean hard on the Word? That's another thing.

      Discipleship is a key ingredient we miss in the Christian community -- especially in the churches. The activity in which we engage here is not necessarily for those who eat spiritual milk. Working out the things we do here is a means of growth by digging after the deeper treasures hidden in time and space.

      If the heavens declare His glory, then it may just be that the redemption of creation and the total, complete and irrevocable restoration of every thing that was originally declared as "very good" will be a crowning glory!

      Waiting, watching and digging deep in the Word are both our portion and our daily exercise. I count it all gain to spend that time with Him and hope you do too!

      Here's praying that the faith of your wife grows!

      Blessings to you always, brother.

  43. This is just creepy, but the TV show "American Horror Stories" has their newest season starting on September 12th. The upcoming season is titled "apocalypse" and includes a major promo picture that features a red demonic baby being held by black demonic hands (See link below). This is the 8th season for this show.


    1. Seven days before Yom Kippur (Day of Atonement) and the eighth season to boot?

      Thank you.


    2. Very creepy! Woah.

  44. Must watch video that Brad from Rev 12 Daily spotted regarding why this year's Draconids might possibly be unprecedented in scope:

    [youtube width="320" height="266" src="RhBiK1JsD5A"/]

    1. Hi Gary, Looking at that video plus these two videos plus this article, I think we have most of pieces.

      Third of the Stars fall

      Truth about the Bethlehem Star

      My conclusion is this:

      September 9-19 is very likely the ten days the gates of heaven are open (rapture or not, it seems significant). And after that there is a very bad omen for the rest of the world: The draconid meteor storm approximately mid october.

      Do you have an article discussing the ten days of awe from Yom Teruah to Yom Kippur and its biblical significance?

    2. AWESOME and informative video! Thank you for sharing.

      I dug on the NASA/JPL links a little more and modelled interactions of Comet 21P in the solar system. There is more to look at here but I find it most interesting that Comet 21P interacts primarily with Jupiter and Earth.

      Using their Java model I can see that on Monday, October 8 and Tuesday, October 9th the Earth will be crossing the path of Comet 21P just a couple weeks after the comet crossing our orbit.

      Mark your calendars!

    3. I agree that I think some of the final pieces have finally fallen in place. Praise God! I haven't covered the ten days of awe, except to suggest it could parallel a possible ten year period of time between the rapture and second coming: http://unsealed.boards.net/thread/1598/missler-insights

      In other words, rapture --> three years later Daniel's 70th Week begins --> seven years later Christ returns. I'm not set on that timeline at all, but it fits some things.

    4. Gary , I was watching a Prophecy watchers this am with host Gary Stearman. His guest was Bill Salus and Salus was commenting on how he believed there would be a couple years from the rapture of the church till the actual starting point of the tribulation- he made some valid points also. So, a good article on the 10 days of awe paralleling the ??? 10 years rapture to second coming would be great.


  45. Latest Large Earthquakes

    8/28 M 6.4 - 136km ENE of Anatahan, Northern Mariana Islands
    8/29 M 7.1 - 209km W of Ile Hunter, New Caledonia

  46. thank you for your article. It is truly amazing. For the past 2-3 weeks every time I have looked at the time, whether it was at work or at home, the time was always 9:11. Honestly, it started driving me crazy.. knowing it has some kind of meaning. I would look at the clock, and again.. 9:11. This was happening every day. After reading your article and seeing the the Feast of Trumpets is September 11 I about fell over. Not 100% sure if this is the exact meaning, but keeping my eyes and ears open.

  47. This comment has been removed by the author.

  48. Don't look now but that bear rapture link I posted above ... it's loomimg larger now. Here's why ... although that Russia and China military exercise is taking place in the East of Russia, Russian military tanks and troops are quietly moving to the west toward Europe's borders! Ominous indeed.

    1. And add this to the comet 21P sign, which seems to be indicate the rapture, and you have the makings of a high prophecy alert. Not saying it will be this year, but those are the world developments on the ground and the prophetic signage taking place in the Heavens.

    2. And just like the comet 21P takes place on September 11, so does this military exercise ... hmmmmmmm

    3. It's almost like a Sovereign Being is putting all the players in the precise place He wants them in preparation for the end of the age. (:

    4. Well, Gary, as I had commented over at Rev12Daily, as Elul ends,9/9/18, and the King returns from being "In The Field", a change in the winds is fitting, Maranatha!

    5. A PIN-POINT,

      Comet 21P is known as the "green" comet. Here are some interesting quotes from EarthSky.org,

      "Although the nucleus of comet 21P/Giacobini-Zinner is estimated to be just over a mile (about 2 km) wide, the heat the comet is now feeling from the sun has caused it to develop a coma or cometary atmosphere some 180,000 miles (about 290,000 km) in diameter, according to observations by Northolt Branch Observatories in London.

      This means comet 21P now has an atmosphere about twice the diameter of our solar system’s biggest planet, Jupiter!

      Some images show the comet’s coma as a green color, which indicates the comet has cyanogen and diatomic carbon, gases that glow in a green color as they’re illuminated by sunlight."

      The colouration of the comet caught my attention. Understanding how asteroids and comets are in elliptical orbits about the sun. If our solar system were a throne room, then the sun would be the throne,

      3 The one seated there had the appearance of jasper and carnelian stone. A rainbow that had the appearance of an emerald surrounded the throne. (Revelation 4:3 CSB)

      Comet 21P is literally tracing an emerald rainbow above the "throne" of our solar system the sun. An interesting parallel to say the least.


      Quoting you Jimboni,

      "...as Elul ends, 9/9/18, and the King returns from being 'In The Field', a change in the winds is fitting"


      The Bridegroom returns for his bride one-year after their betrothal. There are many interesting articles on ancient Jewish traditions of marriage. Here is one I found fascinating,

      Ancient Jewish Marriage

      Some quotes,

      "In those days a father was more concerned about the marriage of his sons than about the marriage of his daughters. No expense was involved in marrying off a daughter. The father received a dowry for his daughter whereas he had to give a dowry to the prospective father-in-law of his son when marrying him off."

      "The mohar was originally the purchase price of the bride, and it is therefore understandable why it was paid by the father of the groom to the father of the bride. In ancient days, marriage was not an agreement between two individuals, but between two families."

      "The newly married man usually did not found a new home for himself, but occupied a nook in his father’s house. The family of the groom gained, and the family of the bride lost, a valuable member who helped with all household tasks. It was reasonable, therefore, that the father of the groom should pay the father of the bride the equivalent of her value as a useful member of the family."

      Hopefully this all sounds familiar to us? (ie, ex, as only one example...)

      Purchase price of the bride == Christ crucified
      Payment to the father of the bride == 144,000 of Israel and the New Church


      How long was the waiting period in a Jewish wedding for the Bridegroom to come for his bride AFTER their betrothal?


      How many days from the Revelation 12 Sign (9/23/17) to Yom Teruah, 5779 (9/11/18)?

      354-days inclusive or one-year.

      The Spiritual Year 5777 was 354-days. The Spiritual Year 5778 is 355-days.

      As Gary observed above, Strong's Greek Concordance #354 is,

      analémpsis: a taking up
      Original Word: ἀνάληψις, εως, ἡ
      Part of Speech: Noun, Feminine
      Transliteration: analémpsis
      Phonetic Spelling: (an-al'-ape-sis)
      Short Definition: a taking up, lifting up
      Definition: a taking up, lifting up.

      Source: https://biblehub.com/greek/354.htm

      Even if you count non-inclusive days it's still one-year or 353-days. Strong's Greek Concordance #353 is,

      Strong's Concordance
      analambanó: to take up, raise
      Original Word: ἀναλαμβάνω
      Part of Speech: Verb
      Transliteration: analambanó
      Phonetic Spelling: (an-al-am-ban'-o)
      Short Definition: I take up, raise
      Definition: I take up, raise; I pick up, take on board; I carry off, lead away.

      Source: https://biblehub.com/greek/353.htm


      Take a look at 5779. The Spiritual Year consists of 355-days. Strong's Greek Concordance #355,

      analiskó: to expend, consume
      Original Word: ἀναλίσκω
      Part of Speech: Verb
      Transliteration: analiskó
      Phonetic Spelling: (an-al-is'-ko)
      Short Definition: I destroy, annihilate
      Definition: I destroy, annihilate, expend, consume.

      Source: https://biblehub.com/greek/355.htm

      Keeping in mind that the father of the groom would *expend* his wealth in payment for his son's bride? Somehow that context makes sense.

      Or am I imagining things?


      Day-354 after the Great Sign of Revelation 12 falls on the third day. Remember that the third day of creation is considered twice blessed because G-d declared it "good" twice.

      See: (Genesis 1:10 CSB) and (Genesis 1:12 CSB)

      For this reason, Tuesday, the third day of the week, was considered the most blessed day for a Jewish wedding,

      1 On the third day a wedding took place
      in Cana of Galilee. Jesus's mother was
      there, and

      2 Jesus and his disciples were invited
      to the wedding as well. (John 2:1-2 CSB)

      As surely as Jesus was present at that blessed event, so too will He be present at our blessed hope! All of His disciples, meaning us, His Church, will be there just as it was in the days of the Cana wedding.

      3 When the wine ran out, Jesus's mother
      told him, "They don't have any wine."

      4 "What does that have to do with you
      and me, woman?" Jesus asked. "My hour
      has not yet come." (John 2:3-4 CSB)

      Indeed! Jesus' hour had not yet come! The hour of His wedding was not yet at hand. The hour for His arrival as Bridegroom had not yet come. Thus He gives to us a sign of His coming for His bride the Church in the miracle of change. The changing of water into wine. Water, those born of the Spirit. Wine, the glorified form of those who are first fruits of the harvest of the vineyard.

      11 Jesus did this, the first of his signs, in Cana of Galilee. He revealed his glory, and his disciples believed in him. (John 2:11 CSB)

    8. ...and in case you are new here and are discovering this for the first time,

      What is known as September, 11 on our Gregorian calendar is considered by some to be the date of Christ's birth/conception as given us in (Luke 1:26-27 CSB),

      26 In the sixth month, the angel Gabriel
      was sent by God to a town in Galilee
      called Nazareth, 27 to a virgin engaged
      to a man named Joseph, of the house of
      David. The virgin's name was Mary.

      The "sixth month" would be the sixth month of the Spiritual calendar. You can view this at Torah Calendar. As you study dates remember that days run from sunset-to-sunset on the ancient Hebrew calendar just as it does in the Bible as given in Genesis.

    9. https://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/world-news/726563/jesus-bible-miracle-site-gospel-of-john-water-wine

      Sorry about the text-link but talk about timing!!

    10. I think the 6th month refers to the 6th month of the pregnancy of Elizabeth with John the Baptist. If you look at Luke 1:24-25 it makes that clear:

      24 After these days his wife Elizabeth conceived, and for five months she kept herself hidden, saying, 25 “Thus the Lord has done for me in the days when he looked on me, to take away my reproach among people.”

      Then the 6th month is mentioned in the next verse.

      26 In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin betrothed[b] to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin's name was Mary.

      It could also have been the 6th month of the calendar, but that's not clear from the text.

    11. @Bruce, A point well taken but given the frequency of the burning of incense and the purpose (function) of John the Baptist, it may also be that Zechariah served on one of the days preceding Pesach at or around Shabbat HaGadol.

      Many points in here for further study, but still, we have that the sixth month of the Hebrew calendar included what we call today September.

    12. Pastor Rich, Wow!!! to all of your thoughts and discoveries. Maranatha!

    13. Ditto what Miguel said!

    14. A POST-SCRIPT,

      One of the questions I ponder is as the golden altar was set (going) before the Holy of Holies in the Tabernacle; may we also see John the Baptist in the same light as going (being) before the LORD Jesus?

      I tend to think yes, although it would be up to prayer and study.

    15. Just an FYI, Donald Trump's middle name is John.

    16. And his Father's middle name was "Christ." In addition to Trump's last name being an obvious possible hint to the "trump" of God in the rapture event, his middle name being John is interesting because it was the apostle John who was "caught up" or raptured into Heaven in Revelation 4:1.

    17. And if I'm not mistaken, his first name Donald means "world ruler." So, here's seemingly what we have spelled out for us in his name... the world ruler (Antichrist) will appear after the rapture of the church (John - Revelation 4:1) at the sounding of the "Trump" of God. There it is. Donald John Trump. Boom!

    18. Richard Faulkner, as you were Publishing your post, above, concerning the Cana Wedding, I was composing a post over at Rev12Daily unpacking TODAY's announcement of archeological data now correcting where Cana most likely was, along with numerous details (6 jars) in their find aligning with Scriptural details. Miguel P noted this to me and I wanted to close the loop back to you, Maranatha!

    19. So, expanding upon Richard's thread of thought, we have the two John's prophetically hinting at the meaning behind Donald John Trump being president at this time signalling the rapture. He symbolizes the rapture not only in the apostle John being raptured, but also John the Baptist appearing just before the first appearance of Christ. In this case, it is symbolizing his second appearance for the church.

    20. I was hoping you would close that loop Jimboni. High five brother!

    21. I heard a pastor say The Donald, who is Scottish//Celtic, means The Ruler of the World and that he is really the 58th President if you count terms and 58 means Noah.

  49. This comment has been removed by the author.

    1. Thanks for chiming in!

      I tend to count backwards and start with the supposed date of the birth (conception) of our Lord. September 11, 0003 BC is the date that Rick Larson has suggested and I agree with much of his findings on the topic as good potentials.

      The day we call September 11, 0003 BC began at sunset of Day 30 of Month 6. This day was called Rosh Chodesh for the sighting of first crescent moon. Basically, it was the last day of the month and was marked by the new moon.

      If this was indeed Christ's conception, remember, life begins at conception, then we may mark six-months prior to arrive at the conception of John. Wind the clock back six months and you land at the beginning of the Spiritual New Year around March 17/18 and just days before the Spring Equinox. Pesach began on Day 14 of Month 1.

      Another interesting date is the Sabbath before Passover. It is one of two special Sabbaths being Shabbat HaGadol and Shabbat Shuba. Shabbat HaGadol is the Sabbath immediately before Pesach (Passover) and is well (IMHO) worth study in relation to the church and the Rapture.

      Here are the readings for Shabbat HaGadol for those interested,

      Shabbat HaGadol Readings

      Thus, this is how I count-out dates going backwards. It just all depends on how accurate we are on Christ's conception (or "birth"). Rick Larson does make a good case for conception on 9/11 and birth early the following summer.

      Shavuot (Pentecost) was Day 6 of Month 3 in the year 0002 BC. We know it as Monday, June 9th, 0002 BC. This was exactly 9-months after the suggested day of Christ's conception by the Holy Spirit.

      Am I saying that Jesus was born on Pentecost of 0002 BC?

      No. I'm just suggesting a time line that follows the logic of what Luke may have been talking about being more than the sixth month since John's conception in (Luke 2:26) and may have *also* meant the month in which Gabriel visited Mary to proclaim her "favoured woman!"

      To me it makes sense that G-D's story would start with the first of His calendar year. What is the Greatest Commandment? If G-d is first in all things, then His story only makes sense when it starts with the first of the year.

      But that's my conjecture at this point and I have fallen WAY behind in my work today.

      Blessings to you and yours, this day and every day!

      Pastor Rich

  50. These are some mighty cans of prophetic whoop a** being cracked open here. God is wettin' his whistle and puttin' on one hell of a party. At this point, the angels are probably busy cleaning up empty cans of WA laying all over the streets of gold and around the throne. The apostle Paul and apostle John are scrubbin' up the WA foam from the initial crack of the cans. Foam can be messy when it's a particularly potent brand of prophecy Whoop a**. There are some serious beverages making the rounds up there right now Mister.

  51. Now I need some prayer and inspiration... thinking about doing an in-depth explanation on the Olivet Discourse.

    1. Well, gang, let's lift Gary and the entire staff in prayer!

      Father, we thank You for how You speak to us and teach us Your Word and Your way. We thank You that You instil in us a hungry heart that yearns to know You more. To show Your handiwork in the smallest of things in our daily life; to point others to You as "the way, the truth and the life."

      Grant us that, by Your will, our brother Gary would be inspired by Your Holy Spirit to speak life in words such that those whom You give through this website will receive those words of life like living waters flowing from Your heart.

      Bless our brother Gary with clarity of message and of thought in articulating the great mystery You have established that though unsearchable, Your gospel may be understood if only we come to You as a child.

      Bless all of the staff, the contributors and guests here to the glory of Your name, to the encouragement of the saints and the rescue of the lost. Wrap them in Your love and bless them according to the riches of Your mercy and grace.

      In Jesus matchless and mighty name we pray.


    2. Amen! Gary, I will continue the prayers for you, thank you for all of your diligence and teaching.

    3. Thank you all. You rock. I'm researching and will hopefully get it done soon... but time might be running out.

  52. Not sure if anyone else noticed this, but the Hebrew and Gregorian calendars line up this year the same as in 3BC, the year Christ was born. Tishri 1 is September 10, also both were a Monday I believe per my research. Can someone confirm as I am not sure if the websites I'm using are accurate.

    I wonder how often that happens?

    1. Hi Stephanie, A quick check of Torah Calendar shows the dates are very close but not right on.

      Month 6, Day 1 of 3 BCE is Tuesday (3rd-day) being August, 12-13 (sunset-to-sunset); while Month 6, Day 1 of 2018 CE is Monday (2nd-day) being August, 12-13 (sunset-to-sunset).

      They are very close but not in sync by day of week for that month.

      One thing I've noticed about 3 BCE is that Month 6, Day 30 and Month 7, Day 1 share September 11th.

      M6D30 is Rosh Chodesh or "head of the month" and a new moon that is Wednesday, September 10, 0003 BCE on our Gregorian calendar. The Torah calendar starts the next day, our Thursday, September 11, 0003 BCE that evening at sunset on M6D30.

      M7D1 of 0003 BCE was a Thursday (5th day) and Yom Teruah. (Today it is widely marked as Rosh Hashana for the Civil New Year). This is the day *we* would call 9/11.

      I find it interesting that by the estimate of some, me included, that Christ was born on a day that spans month 6 (the number of man), month 7 (the number of perfection), on Rosh Chodesh - head of the month/end of the month (beginning & end), marked by the sounding of the "trumpet" for the sighting of the new crescent moon at the beginning of the Feast of Trumpets (Yom Teruah). Boy, there's some study points for someone in small group or Sunday school!

      Jesus of Nazareth. Fully man in whom the fullness of Deity dwelt. The son of man, the Son of G-D.

      It still blows my mind! Such unsearchable beauty and poetry. The Word written for us!

      (Isaiah 57:15 ESV)

      Pastor Rich

  53. Please, can someone help me understand the timing in Revelation 12:6? After the Child was caught up to God and he throne (Rev. 12:5), then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God,...for one thousand two hundred and sixty days." This works out to be 3 1/2 years or what I believe to be the last 3 1/2 years before Jesus triumphant return to earth to set up His Kingdom. So.....if the rapture occurs at the beginning of the 7 year tribulation, 3 1/2 years before the abomination of desolation and the beginning the the GREAT WRATH from God.....does this scripture mean rapture of church.....then devil waits 3 1/2 years before going after the woman who gave birth to the Child in Rev. 5? Does anyone understand this waiting period? Or could it mean the church isn't taken out until 3 1/2 years into the 7 years and just before The Great Wrath? I truly want to know....Thanks for this web site....watching for that day and hour! God Bless!

    1. It’s my understanding that while the rapture of the church takes place, the “Strong Delusion” mentioned in 2 Thessalonians 2:11 may be simultaneously taking place. It’s this take on the strong delusion that some pre-tribbers state as being the world’s explanation for why millions of people are suddenly missing. It could be connected to natural disasters, a sudden world war, part of a mass alien abduction theory, a combination of these or something else we don’t yet perceive that will mislead the world. Anyway, there will be a transition period after the rapture, and during this time the Antichrist will need to show the world that he’s the “man with the plan” who can bring “peace and safety” to a world in turmoil.

      Now Daniel 9:27 states that the Antichrist will confirm a peace agreement for one week (7 years), and some believe that this confirmation is taking an existing peace agreement (or one in the works) and making it more spectacular by including the third Jewish temple. Since the temples construction will not take place overnight, it’s reasonable to assume that from the time its construction begins until the Antichrist sets up the abomination could be 3 ½ years. If true, this would be the same 3 ½ year mark that Daniel warns the people about (“In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering. And at the temple he will set up an abomination that causes desolation”). Matthew 24:15-16 states that this event marks the time when the people need to flee, as it's this point in time when the Antichrist shows his true colors. Basically, he tells the Jewish nation that he's their creator (2 Thessalonians 2:4), they call him out as a liar, and he goes after them.

      In summary, I believe there’s a period of time after the rapture where the Antichrist rises to his position of authority and “confirms” the 7yr peace agreement which leads to him setting up the abomination at the midpoint of the agreement and thus causing the Israelites to flee.

    2. It is definite that the church gets raptured off the earth at Revelation 4:1. Of this we can be certain. The Church being taken in Revelation 12 would contradict Revelation 4:1 and all the other biblical indications of a pre-tribulation rapture. The man-child being caught up to Heaven, it is said by many, is Jesus. If it were the church, then that would mean that we are looking at a mid-tribulation rapture. The link below should clarify your question a bit.

    3. How can Jesus be taken to Heaven by force (harpazo) if he ascended in Acts 1:11 and obviously stayed in Heaven Acts 7:55-56 until today and will not return before He will celebrate again with us Matthew 26:29 ??? Can you explain away what the bible clearly teaches?

    4. The book of Revelation is primarily written in a chronological style with occasional breaks for overviews of specific subjects. Revelation 12 is one of these overviews, providing a history stretching from the time before humans existed until the time just before Christ’s return as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The woman (nation of Israel) is described as giving birth to a “male Child" who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron” (Revelation 12:5). As we all know, Christ was born into this nation. The verse continues, “And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.” The language here makes it clear that Jesus is the “Child.” Jesus is the One who is prophesied to “strike the nations." And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron” (Revelation 19:15). He is also the One who, after His resurrection, was taken up in a cloud to Heaven (Acts 1:9-11) as you have correctly pointed out. Remember, this is an overview, a break in the chronological action for this overview.

      This being the case, could last year's Revelation 12 sign in the heavens be a sign to the Jews of what happened in the first resurrection or "rapture" in Acts1:9-11? This sign serves to explain to them what happened when the "good man perished out of the earth" via the rapture of the church hinted at in Revelation 4:1.

    5. Afterthoughts ... Remember that we have a tale of woe coming from the Jews after the rapture of the church in Micah 5 ...

      "Woe is me! for I am as when they have gathered the summer fruits, as the grapegleanings of the vintage: there is no cluster to eat: my soul desired the firstripe fruit.The good man is perished out of the earth: and there is none upright among men: they all lie in wait for blood; they hunt every man his brother with a net ..." (Micah 5:1-2).

      Last years Revelation 12 sign, a sign specifically to the Jews (by default a sign to us), is a warning sign to them because we see in Micah 5 their reaction to the disappearance of the church (the good man perishingbfrom the earth). Last year's Revelation 12 sign is a signal that the their tale of woe in Micah 5 is about to commence by the church's disappearance. The man child (Jesus) in Revelation 12 is pointing to the disappearance or rapture of Jesus in Acts 1 (remember, this is an overview). Also remember, it is said in Acts 1 that he will "come in like manner just as he went." If the Revelation 12 man child is Jesus (it has to be because the woman is Israel), then this has to be a sign to the Jews of our (the church's) departure.

    6. To further solidify all of this, shall we take " the big hint?" The account of Jesus ascension in acts 1 occurs in ... wait for it! ... wait for it! ... wait for it now! come on, you can do it! ... here goes! verses 9-11 ..? Feast of Trumpets! The major candidate for the rapture of the church. BOOM!!!!!! WHAT A THUNDEROUS CAN OF PROPHETIC WHOOP A**!!! RIGHT AND TIGHT ACROSS THE JAW BABY!!! WHOOOOOO!!!! I DUNNO JIM, HE MIGHT NOT GET UP FROM THIS ONE!!!

    7. Micah 7:1, not Micah 5:1. It's not a big deal but thought you'd want to know

    8. Yes, meant to say Micah 7 not Micah 5 ... 😆

    9. I was interested in what you were saying, so I decided to look it up and read it for myself! 😊

    10. And isn't it rather interesting that as we approach the feast of trumpets time (one year after the man child {Jesus} Revelation 12 sign, we have this ...

      And this ...

      And this ...

      Signs of the bear rapture anyone?

    11. So, this thread is one view. May or may not be so. As Gary said, the male child escapes the dragon's clutches via a miraculous deliverance at the hand of God. Jesus was never in danger of the dragon's clutches. The church has that possible danger if we didn't escape through the rapture. Jesus was not raptured. He ascended. Different words in the Greek. And as I mentioned, with Revelation 12 being an overview, there's an excellent chance that this man child is indeed the church ... thus not indicating a mid-tribulation rapture as was question or confusion or concern of the commenter that started this thread. Revelation 12 man child can easily be describing the church in the rapture event of Revelation 4:1 since Revelation 12 is an overview. Either way, looks mighty suspicious for a rapture hint.

    12. Plus the promise in Acts 1 that he will so come in like manner just as you have seen him go could be referring to the second coming and not the rapture. That could put a dent in the view that Jesus is the man-child. So there's that. I guess I'm critiquing myself here at this point. Either way, last year's Revelation 12 sign is looking mighty suspicious for our soon departure.

    13. Breaking News ...

      Isaiah 17 upcoming???

  54. This comment has been removed by the author.

  55. This is interesting timing considering Pres Trump's peace plan announcement is only a few weeks away. Which Abbas said he would never agree to.


    1. I mentioned this earlier in the comments I think, but it seems like God has finally put the remaining pieces in place. It's all going to happen quickly when it happens.

    2. It sure is, suddenly.

  56. Great article Gary! Just want to give everyone something to think about. If the true new year started with the first new moon after spring equinox, then the true feast of trumpets would be Oct. 10 not Sept.10. The prophet Daniel said in 12:11 And from the time [that] the daily [sacrifice] shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, [there shall be] a thousand two hundred and ninety days. Some interpret this as the Rapture taking place 30 days before the beginning of the Tribulation +1260 days ending in the middle of the Tribulation with the abomination of desolation. Rapture Oct. 10 plus 30 days+1260+1260=2550 days for Tribulation comes to Oct. 3 2025 Day of Atonement when many expect Jesus to return at his Second Coming. With all these signs converging it sure does look like this could be the year. Any way that is my two cents worth.

    1. That is an interesting concept to review as by my observations, Jupiter will move out of Libra (the altar) on or about 10/10-11.

      Shemini Atzeret (Eighth Day Solemn Assembly) + 7-days = the new moon of the Draconid Meteor Shower (the rain begins)???

      By Thursday, October 11th, Jupiter is moving out of Libra while the Moon enters Libra.

      Jupiter == The king planet (man-child) born of the woman (Israel) in R12
      Moon == Symbolic of Israel (lunar calendar)

      At the same time, Venus (the Morning Star - symbolic of Christ) will approach the altar (Libra) and (Jupiter) and appear to *STOP* as it turns and returns to Spica ("Seed", "Seed bearer") in Virgo. I think we're all aware of who Virgo represents here.


    2. Just modelling this timeline it begins on, or about, Tuesday, October 9, 2018 on Rosh Chodesh (Head of the month) on the night of the new moon in the middle of the Draconid meteor shower. This timeline begins with the end of Month 7 according to Torah Calendar.

      That is an interesting timing as by some accounts Jesus was born on Rosh Chodesh (9/11/3-BC) ending month six and beginning month seven on the Torah calendar. This timeline models a Rosh Chodesh rapture ending month seven and beginning month eight.

      Hmmmm, interesting.

      Looking to the skies we see Jupiter leaving the altar (Libra) about 10/10-11, Venus stops at the altar (Libra) at the same time having returned there from a conjunction with Spica in Virgo on the night of Saturday, September 1st. (It was stunning as it was clearly visible to the naked eye! Venus is SO bright right now it is even visible in broad daylight! My iPhone 7 can see it!)

      The moon will cross onto the altar (Libra) on 10/11 as well. After this encounter, Venus will return to Virgo to conjunct with Spica one more time.

      All of this will happen on the heels of the Draconid meteor shower which falls seven (7) days after the Eighth Day Solemn Assembly (Shemini Atzeret).

      Count 30-days from this event on 10/11 and you land on Rosh Chodesh (Head of the month) again for month 9. The first day of month nine, according to Torah Calendar, is Rosh Chodesh and falls on the sixth day (Friday).

      Continue counting 1260-days from Friday, November 9 to complete the 1290-days, lands you on day five of the Feast of Unleavened Bread on Thursday, April 21st and Friday, April 22nd.

      Counting another 1260-days lands you on Thursday, October 2, 2025 (Yom Kippur). Rapture to return there are 2550-days in this example.

      A closing note: I am NOT date setting. Graphically modeling the Biblical narrative is a valuable study tool. I find there are not enough hours in the day when I get studying like this...and doing such studies is an occupational "hazard" for me. There is much more to examine here but I have a church to serve in a few hours so better get some rest!


      Pastor Rich

    3. Thanks, Pastor Rich. We appreciate you.

      I recall last year a tongue-in-cheek reference to the Rev 12 sign: The Occupational Hazard. Glad you are one of those shepherds who knows what time it is.

  57. I would also like to add that if the 1335 Day count given in the Book of Daniel 12:12 Blessed [is] he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days. If this additional 75 days is after the Tribulation ending with Day of Atonement Oct. 2-3, then this would bring us to Dec. 16 2025 Hanukkah or Feast of Dedication. This celebration is also mentioned in John 10:22-23 And it was at Jerusalem the feast of the dedication, and it was winter. 23 And Jesus walked in the temple in Solomon's porch. I also am not date setting, just seeking and studying all possible scenarios for this year of 2018.

    1. Yes, that's a nice way to fit in those 75 days.

    2. Thank you for that...

      Yes, Day-1335 falls on Tuesday, December 16, 2025 (Hanukkah Day I) if starting at Friday, April 22, 2022. 4/21-4/22/22 is the midpoint of the 1290/1260-day count.

      The Millennial Kingdom starting on Hanukkah Day I makes all the sense in the world to my finite and limited mind. And on the third day. Tuesday. Twice blessed. What a beautiful and poetic re-dedication and wedding feast that would be!

      Words fail me.

      I can only imagine.

    3. Can someone chime in and state why the Jewish religious year might have started with the first new moon AFTER the spring equinox? I've been following these posts, and I understand that the Jewish religious year goes from new moon to new moon, but I'm just not getting why the month of Nissan may have started in April (17th?) instead of March (18th?). I tried doing some research on this, and I found the following:

      Exodus 34:22: And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the feast of ingathering at the year's end.

      “The Hebrew word translated "year's end" is "tequphah." It means at the end, the circuit of time, the revolution, the equinox. In other words, Yahweh is here telling Israel that the Feast of Tabernacles should occur at about the time of the autumnal equinox when the agricultural year is at its end. This is a vital clue because it links the harvest festival of Tabernacles to the autumnal equinox.” - David B. Loughran (Stewarton Bible School)

      If the autumn Equinox in 2018 is around September 22nd, then according to Loughran’s explanation, the true Feast of Trumpets in 2018 should be before the autumn equinox (Sept. 10-11th?) and not after it.

      I’m not trying to be a Johnny raincloud here, but I am trying to understand if Lougharn is right or if there really is a possibility that the Feast of Trumpets might occur this year in October.

  58. Ryan Loewen I hope this helps explain when the new year starts.

    Great clarity Richard Faulkner! Thanks!

  59. Stellarium shows 7 active meteor showers taking place Oct. 10. Why did it have to be 7? Keeping in mind there are only about 5000 viewable stars at night that can be viewed with the naked eye in either hemisphere, seeing 1/3 of the stars fall is looking like a strong possibility especially if the Dragon (Draco) awakens. That would be approximately 150 stars per hour.

    1. Remember too that Draco covers 1/3 of the sky (120-degrees). Hmmm, 120. It's almost like Draco is part of numbering the days of man.

      3 Then the LORD said, "My Spirit shall not abide in man forever, for he is flesh: his days shall be 120 years." (Genesis 6:3 ESV)

      A tug of my heart bids me look at Strong's Concordance again,

      [insert jaw dropping here]

      Comet 21P will be crossing ahead of our orbit very soon now! You may be able to find it with binoculars. Perhaps it's time to dig-out our telescope and go star gazing. So many planets and marvels to see!

      The sunset tonight was breathtaking too! A masterpiece!

      Thank you Father!!
