1260 days after Rev 12 sign is March 6th, 2021
The Great Sign in the Sky 9-23-17 as foretold in Rev.12
Sir Isaac Newton said, “about the time of the end, a body of men will be raised up who will turn their attention to the Prophecies, and insist upon their literal interpretation, in the midst of much clamor and opposition.”Sir Isaac Newton, 1642-1727
Revelation 12 says, “a great sign appeared in heaven, a woman, clothed with the sun, the moon at her feet, and twelve stars over her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth”.
It was discovered that a formation would appear in the sky on September 23rd, 2017. It was a sign that involved the sun, moon, and stars. And it was a formation that astoundingly matched Revelation 12:1-2. It was a literal sign in the sky that literally fit the description. Nothing in history had ever so perfectly matched the formation. The closest thing to it was 6000 years ago.
The formation in the sky became known as the “Revelation 12 Sign”. It was ignored by many and criticized by some. But many among those who did study it became very convinced that it had to be a sign from God. On the one hand, it was a sign that the Book of Revelation would be unfolding very soon, on the other hand, the sign on 9-23-17 was considered by many to be a great rapture sign.
The only constellation in the sky representing a woman is Virgo. And the great sign was Virgo with 12 stars over her head. The 12 stars over her head was Leo plus 3 planets (Mercury, Mars, and Venus). Those 3 planets over Virgo’s head was one thing that made this formation extremely rare.
Then the other very interesting thing was that Jupiter, “the king planet” went inside Virgo’s womb and stayed rotating around inside her womb for a gestation period. And just before Jupiter went into the womb of Virgo, there was a comet that went from the loins area of Leo into the womb of Virgo. That comet was C/2017 E1 Comet Boris. The comet looked just like sperm and immediately after entering Virgo’s womb area, Jupiter followed. A youtube was made about it called, “Revelation 12 Virgo Inseminated! CONCEPTION COMET! “ By World Breaker. He mentioned that it was his first youtube he had ever done, and he said it would probably be his last. He commented: THIS VIDEO DOES NOT SET A DATE FOR THE RAPTURE, NOR FOR THE TRIBULATION!!! IT DOES HOWEVER CONFIRM WE ARE UNDOUBTEDLY THE GENERATION TO WITNESS THE RETURN OF OUR LORD!
That comet made the formation on Sept 23rd, 2017 totally unlike anything else in history. It had never happened before. The sign on 9-23-17 was the closest picture of Rev 12 that had ever appeared. On 9-23-17 Jupiter began making its way out of the womb area of Virgo. It looked like it very well could symbolize the birth of the “King”.
There was a lot of consideration that the sign might be pointing to rapture. Some insinuated that the rapture might actually take place on that day. Scott Clark did a youtube on it. At one point he did make it clear that he was not predicting the date of the rapture, but the date of a sign.
Although the church mostly ignored it or criticized it, the news media caught on just before 9-23-17. News articles around the globe were talking about it. They claimed that some were predicting the end of the world. Actually no body was actually predicting the end of the world, but that is what some of the news media focused on. It was fake news. But it also did get a whole lot of people talking about the rapture. Most of them were just mocking. It was a fulfillment of the prophecy made in 2 Peter 3:3-4.
“Above all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “where is this ‘coming’ He promised?” Ever since our ancestors died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation.” 2 Peter 3:3-4
Due to the critical media response, multitudes of people heard about the idea of rapture for the first time. Some, who had studied the sign, were excited about the possibility of it coming, but most were just learning about it and mocking the idea.
One of the main reasons the Revelation 12 sign was considered a rapture sign was due to the interpretation of verse 5 which said, “the child was caught up to God”. That child was said to have been born from the woman and was destined to reign over the world.
The child is interpreted by the majority of Bible teachers as referring specifically to Jesus. It is very clear in Scripture that Jesus is the One Who will rule as King of Kings. There is no doubt about that by any knowledgeable believer.
Yet there is very good reason to consider this child in Revelation 12:5 as referring to the whole Body of Christ. Why?
First, the Woman in Revelation 12 is clearly referring to Israel. She is the woman with twelve stars over her head. That can be seen in Joseph’s dream in Genesis 37. So the woman is not just, “Mary” as the mother of Jesus, but the woman is Israel as a corporate whole giving birth to the child. And in regard to the dragon that is desiring to devour the child, that does not refer only to the evil one alone, but it refers to the whole system of evil under the control of the evil one.
So since the corporate whole is referred to in reference to the woman and the dragon, it can also be understood to be referring to the corporate whole Body of Christ: the true Church.
Secondly, the child in Revelation 12 is snatched up as the dragon is seeking to destroy it. The context indicates the child being snatched up to protect it from the danger of the dragon. Now we know that does not fit what happened to Jesus. The Lord ascended to heaven in total control of the Universe.
Though the dragon did inspire Herod to try to kill Jesus as a child, the dragon was absolutely no danger to Jesus after the resurrection. Hallelujah!
So the child that is snatched up reasonably represents the rapture of the church. Hallelujah again and again!
Thirdly, DTS professor, Dr. Michael Svigel was interviewed in an article: PRE-TRIBULATIONAL RAPTURE: AN INTERVIEW WITH MICHAEL SVIGEL. He discusses the importance of Revelation 12:1-5 as referring to the rapture.
One point he made in the article is as follows:
“Allusion to Isaiah 66:7-8. The use of the neuter adjective arsen (male) modifying the masculine noun huios (son) and the image of Israel giving birth points careful readers back to Isaiah 66:7–8, where we read in the Septuagint (Greek version of the Old Testament):
“Before she travailed, she brought forth; Before her pain came, she gave birth to a boy (arsen). Who has heard such a thing? Who has seen such things? Can a land be born in one day? Can a nation be brought forth all at once? As soon as Zion travailed, she also brought forth her children.”
The image is parallel in Revelation, and John explicitly breaks the rules of Greek grammar (modifying the masculine “son” with the neuter “male”) to point us back to this passage in Isaiah 66. The child in both cases is corporate, not individual.”
Revelation 12:1-5 points back to Isaiah 66:7-8. Both passages present Israel giving birth. And Israel is giving birth to a “nation” that would be brought forth all at once.
“As soon as Zion travailed, she also brought forth her children”.
In theory then, Israel giving this “birth” to the “nation” will be the rapture. The church will be the “nation” that will be born.
And soon after that birth, the 70th week of Daniel will start. At that time God’s attention will be turned more specifically to Israel. After the rapture, there will be chaos. Then soon after that, there will be a treaty made with Israel for seven years. The signing of that treaty will mark the beginning of the seven year count down.
And notice in Isaiah 66 that
“before her pain came, she gave birth”.
If this theory is correct, the pain referred to will be the pain that comes when Israel is attacked, just as the rapture takes place.
Therefore, understanding that, it shows why so many were excited about the sign of birth in the sky on 9-23-17. It gave reason to think about the rapture. And many did think about it and learn about it due to that great sign.
There is often a sign on the side of highways that say: “Obey Warning Signs, State Law”.
The Revelation 12 sign in the sky was like God’s warning sign that the rapture is coming. Many deny it or mock it, but it is coming. And when it comes, those who were not ready are going to be in shock.
Some felt that because the rapture did not happen on 9-23-17 that the sign was false. But God has every right to give a sign and have the fulfillment come after the sign. He is not in a hurry. In His mercy He gives ample warning. It will be fulfilled in His perfect time.
