Revelation 12: A Major Rapture Sign
"A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads.
Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. 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. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who "will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.
Revelation 12:1-5 NIV
On the 23rd of September in the year 2017, a great sign appeared in the heaven, which many end time watchmen believed to be the Revelation 12 sign.They believe that the astronomical alignment on September 23, 2017 fulfilled the first two verses of Revelation 12. On this day, the moon was seen at the feet of the constellation Virgo, the nine stars of the constellation Leo plus the three planets Mercury, Venus and Mars will be at the head of virgo. Watchmen believe this a depiction of Revelation 12:1. The planet Jupiter will be in the center of Virgo and a week past after September 23, Jupiter will exit Virgo to the East past her feet (Christopher M. Graney, 2017).
Some astronomers claim that this similar arrangement in the sky has taken place at least four times in the past, in 1827, 1483, 1293 and 1056. But still various internet sources speak of this celestial phenomenon as something unique in human history that happened only once in 7000 years (Christopher M. Graney, 2017).
The sign of the RED DRAGON
What could be the sign of Red Dragon as depicted in Revelation 12:3-4?
Youtuber Brandon Cory Nagley reveals in his Youtube channel last August 23, 2021 the appearance of large striped planet X system body which consists of pictures of a tailed planet X system body with many moons with it. This system body was shown on Mars Rover camera.
According to Nagley, fires burn worldwide because meteor debris that are coming in from the planet X System are starting fires not told to the global public.
Based on the Deagal Report as broadcast by Pastor Paul Begley, there are about 25, 000 asteroids that surround earth this year 2021 and in the year 2025 there will be about 125,000 asteroids that will surround the earth. Drawing a conjecture from this, we can deduce that next year, 2022 there will be about 50,000 asteroids to surround earth, 75,000 in the year 2023 and 100, 000 in the year 2024. The earth is going through a massive asteroid debris field due to the closing in of the Nibiru System. Could this be the one spoken of in Revelation 12:3-4?
On August 13, 2021 Youtube channel FINAL DAYS revealed in its broadcast the appearance of many different celestial objects which look like planets on FAA weather cameras. Many different planets are near the earth. The FAA camera also reveals the appearance of striped celestial object and very large celestial object with craters.
According to FINAL DAYS, the occurrence of more frequent and bigger earthquakes and volcanic eruptions are caused by these celestial objects. Magnetic force from these celestial bodies trigger the occurrence of these earthquakes. As they draw closer, the earthquakes will further intensify.
The Red Dragon represents also the "Beast Kingdom." The Beast Kingdom headed by the Antichrist will rule the world during Tribulation period. It consists of seven crowns, and ten horns which represent the ten world leaders which will rule the world with the Antichrist.
Revelation 12:5 speaks of the birth of Christ, and His ascension to heaven. In this passage Christ represents the church - who will experience renewal from physical body into a glorified body. Then after renewal, the church will experience being caught up to the heaven, this is what we have known as Harpazo.
Based on the passage above, there are two major signs to be observed before the Rapture. First the appearance in heaven of the woman who is about to give birth as it is written in Revelation 12:1-2. This woman represents Israel and the twelve stars around her head are the twelve tribes of Israel. God has chosen Israel as a nation that will bring out the Messiah. Through the nation Israel, Christ came into this world. Israel is also the nation which gave birth to the church since the first Christian church was established in Israel.
The sign of the woman appeared in the heaven on September 23, 2017 according to several end time watchmen. The second major sign is the appearance in the heaven of the Red Dragon, whose tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. This Red Dragon could represent the Planet X system or the Nibiru/Binary system. The stars which are swept by the dragon's tail are the asteroids and other celestial bodies surrounding earth. Since nowadays, we are beginning to observe the occurrence of this phenomena, I do really believe that the Harpazo has become more imminent than before. Revelation 12:5 speaks of our translation. These phenomena pertaining to these heavenly signs are just consistent with what the Lord Jesus has spoken in Luke 21:25-28 (NIV);
"There will be signs in the sun, moon and stars. On the earth, nations will be in anguish and perplexity at the roaring and tossing of the sea. People will faint from terror, apprehensive of what is coming on the world, for the heavenly bodies will be shaken. At that time theywill see the Son of Man coming in a cloud with power and great glory."
"When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near."
Since the Rapture of the church has become really imminent in our time, it is about time to put our house in order, to start washing our robe and put our highest priority in the Kingdom of God and our relationship with God.
If you still do not have a relationship with God, it is about time to pursue such relationship. This relationship begins with Christ. Jesus says in John 14:6; "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."
We have to accept Christ as our Savior by putting our faith in Christ finished work on the cross as the only acceptable sacrifice for the atonement for our sins. Christ's work on the cross is perfect, complete and sufficient. It is written in Hebrews 10:10;
"And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrificre of the body of Jesus Christ once for all."
We need Christ as Savior because our sin will lead us to condemnation apart from the work of Christ. It is written in Romans 6:23;
"For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord."
This death does not simply refer to cessation
of life, but eternal separation from God and consignment to the eternal Lake of Fire. As it is written in Revelation 21:8;
"But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars - they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death."
It is also of great importance as part of believing in Christ to abandon our sinful lifestyle. Lord Jesus admonished in the Gospel of John all those who will believe in Him not to remain in darkness but abide in His light. It is written in I John 1:6;
"If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin."
This is God's promise to all those who will truly believe in Christ,
"Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God."
Having relationship with God is the most important relationship you can have in this life and this is one thing that matters most in eternity.
