Greetings in the precious name of our Lord Jesus Christ,
I very recently came across this website and I was glad to read some of the fascinating facts about the Second Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I have been about the book of Revelation and the Lord has been helping me and only by His grace I am able to understand so many things from the Bible.
As I came to Nicole's dreams of Rev 12 (2-Feb-2014) and as I read, this person was the first one to say that the woman of Rev 12 was Israel and that the man child is the Church, which agrees to my interpretation. This means that Rev 12 has to happen first before the seals are opened in Rev 6.
Woman = Israel
Man child = The Church
Once the Church comes to its perfection, that is once all the members (body parts) are matured, the time will come to be born and as soon as the Church is born, the Church would be caught up unto his throne (Rev 3:21) and to his God and the Church will rule with Jesus with a rod of iron (Rev 2:27). The Dragon will fight against Michael the archangel and is cast down to the earth, while he is falling down, he will cast down one third of stars to the ground, which shows the 'falling away' and then this dragon will come and show himself up through the 'man of sin' that would be revealed at that time and then persecute the Israel, who would be led into wilderness for 1260 days. Israel would be taken into wilderness with the help of two wings (two witnesses) of a great eagle (God Himself - Jer 48:40). While this Dragon (Antichrist) will send a flood (army) from his mouth (Antichrist) to destroy the woman (Israel), the earth (religious system) will help her by opening up her mouth and swallowing up the flood. Finally, the Antichrist will overcome Israel and persecute the remnant (144000 Jews-Isa 10:21, Joel 2:32, Mica 5:7-8, Rom 9:27, Rom 11:5) of her (Israel) seed.
God bless you all.
