chapter 6 (yes follows chapter 5)


Chapter 12  As Dr. Heiser said, “Some important items here need development.” (apologies)

Chapters 4 through 7 are happening in heaven. Chapter 12 is a parenthetical, a spiritual glance of Israel, The Christ, the Great Red Dragon Satan being cast to earth for his last 7 years before the millennium.  The sealing of the saints on their foreheads, the saints are given garments, and worship God. The description of heaven is here. John is taken into heaven and he gets to see the Lord, sitting on His throne.

*Dr. Michael S. Heiser’s book, “Reversing Hermon”, Chapter 1, The Sons of God and the Nephilim, Taking Genesis 6:1-4 Seriously, pages 9-11.
“The so-called Sethite interpretation refuses to take the passage at face value, with the sons of God as diving beings (“angels”) and their offspring as giants. This view has been the consensus Christian position since the late fourth      century A.D. It is still the predominant approach to Genesis 6:1-4 in modern evangelical churches.
In this approach, the sons of God are merely human beings, men from the line of Seth, Adam and Eve’s son who was  born after Cain murdered Abel (Genesis 4:25-26; 5:3-4). Presumably, these four verses describe forbidden          intermarriage between the godly men of Seth’s lineage (“sons of God”) and the ungodly women of Cain’s line          (“daughters of human-kind”). In this reading, everyone who lived on earth ultimately came from these two lines, both of them descended from Adam and Eve’s children.
In this way, the Bible distinguished the godly from the ungodly. Part of the rationale for this view comes from Genesis 4:26, where, depending on the translation, we read that either Seth or humankind “began to call on the name of the Lord” (NIV). The line of Seth was to remain pure and separate from evil lineage. The marriages of Genesis 6:1-4 erased this separation and incurred the wrath of God in the Flood.”

“There is a good deal of evidence (e.g., zodiac mosaics in ancient Jewish synagogues) that faithful, theologically        conservative Jews believed that divine activity that would have an impact on earthly events could  be discerned in the skies–activity they were careful to attribute to the true God and no other gods.”

IV CHAPTER 12 PARENTHETICAL

 

Chapter 12

 

A Parenthetical, a spiritual glance of Israel, The Christ, the Great Red Dragon Satan being cast to earth. The Great Red Dragon Satan trying to kill the Promise, the Secret of God. It is the spiritual warfare that is going on. So, I have placed Rev 12:1 through 12:12 to precede Chapter 6. 

 

WOMAN

Rev 12:1  NOW a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.

  

Chuck Smith Revelation 10-12 (C2000 Series) The Blue Letter Bible online. The identity of the woman is found in Genesis 37:9, as we read of the dream of Joseph, how the sun and the moon and the eleven stars bowed down to him and so the same figure here. We have the identity of the woman as the nation of Israel, those twelve tribes that came out of Jacob.

 

Rev 12:2  Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth. Isa 26:17; 66:7;

 

Isa 26:17  Like as a woman with child, [that] draweth near the time of her delivery, is in pain, [and] crieth out in her pangs; so have we been in thy sight, O LORD.

Isa 66:7  Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child. Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? [or] shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.

GREAT DRAGON

Rev 12:3  And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.  also see: Rev 9:2,11; 11:7; 12:3,7,9,13; 13:1; 17:3,8,16; 19:20; 20:2,3,10;

This ‘great, fiery red dragon has 7 heads, 10 horns, 7 diadems (crowns). (12:3) Satan
The beast that rises up out of the sea (out of the world of men) has 7 heads, 10 horns and 10 crowns. (13:1) Gentile World Power controlled/led by Satan. T
he Scarlet Coloured Beast! Full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns!

Every nation/state of the Middle East has united against Israel, with plans for her destruction! 7 heads, 10 horns, all of them united! The struggle amongst the nations/states of ‘The Scarlet Coloured Beast’ is ‘who‘ will be their ‘leader’!  The 10 horns are the 10 kings – Rev 17:12 And the ten horns which thou sawest are ten kings, which have received no kingdom as yet; but receive power as kings one hour with the beast. Rev 17:16 And the ten horns which thou sawest upon the beast, these shall hate the whore, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and burn her with fire.

Rev 17:1Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and talked with me, saying to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment {Chap 18} of the great harlot {17:5 MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH}{ the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”Babylon”} who sits on many waters {17:15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.}{the kings and the inhabitants of the earth} {17:2 the kings and the inhabitants of the earth}{17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns}{Rev 12:3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.} {Rev 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.} {Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years}
2 “with whom the kings of the earth {17:3 The Scarlet Beast}{17:15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.}{17:2 the kings and the inhabitants of the earth}{17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns} {Rev 12:3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.} {Rev 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.} {Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years}have committed fornication, and the inhabitants of the earth were made drunk with the wine of her fornication.”
3 So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman {17:5 MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH}{ 18 the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”Babylon} sitting on a scarlet beast {the kings of the earth} [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. {12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast.}.} {Rev 12:3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 9And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.} {Rev 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.} {Rev 20:2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years}
4 The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication.
5 And on her forehead a name [was] written: MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
6 I saw the woman, {17:5 MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH}{ the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”Babylon} drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.
7 But the angel said to me, “Why did you marvel? I will tell you the mystery of the woman {17:5 MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH}{ the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”Babylon}{17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns}and of the beast {a scarlet beast}that carries her, which has the seven heads and the ten horns. {17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns}
8 “The beast that you saw {17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns} was, and is not, and will ascend {the Ottoman Empire}{Dan 7:23The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces.
24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom [are] ten kings [that] shall arise and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings (ISIS) {These 10 horns are kings/countries that once were the Ottoman Empire. Turkey, Iran, Iraq (Babylon), Syria, Qatar, Jordan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, Libya  corresponding to the ten toes of the image.} out of the bottomless pit and go to perdition. And those who dwell on the earth will marvel, whose names are not written in the Book of Life from the foundation of the world {ISIS, demons}, when they see the beast that was, and is not, and yet is {the Ottoman Empire}
9 “Here [is] the mind which has wisdom: The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sitteth. {countries/nations/Kings of the earth}on which the woman sits. {the kings and the inhabitants of the earth} {17:3And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast [which was] full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns}
10 “There are also seven kings. Five have fallen, one is, [and] the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue a short time {ISIS Leader?}.
11 “The beast that was, and is not, is himself also the eighth, and is of the seven, and is going to perdition. {the Ottoman Empire}{Dan 7:23The fourth beast shall be the fourth kingdom upon earth, which shall be diverse from all kingdoms, and shall devour the whole earth, and shall tread it down, and break it in pieces. 24 And the ten horns out of this kingdom [are] ten kings [that] shall arise and another shall rise after them; and he shall be diverse from the first, and he shall subdue three kings (ISIS) {These 10 horns are kings/countries that once were the Ottoman Empire. Turkey, Iran, Iraq (Babylon), Syria, Qatar, Jordan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, Libya  corresponding to the ten toes of the image.}
12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. {These 10 horns are kings/countries that once were the Ottoman Empire. Turkey, Iran, Iraq (Babylon), Syria, Qatar, Jordan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, Libya  corresponding to the ten toes of the image.}
13 “These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast.
14 “These will make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, for He is Lord of lords and King of kings; and those [who are] with Him [are] called, chosen, and faithful.”
15 Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues.
16 “And the ten horns which you saw on the beast {These 10 horns are kings/countries that once were the Ottoman Empire. Turkey, Iran, Iraq (Babylon), Syria, Qatar, Jordan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, Libya  corresponding to the ten toes of the image}, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. {Chap 18}
17 “For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, {These 10 horns are kings/countries that once were the Ottoman Empire. Turkey, Iran, Iraq (Babylon), Syria, Qatar, Jordan, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Egypt, Libya  corresponding to the ten toes of the image.} until the words of God are fulfilled.
18 “And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.” {17:5 MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH}

Zechariah 3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it. 9And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem.

 
Rev 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then [I saw] the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received [his] mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.

CHILD

Rev 12:4  His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. Dan 8:10; *Recommend reading Dr. Heiser’s books and watching his online Seminars! His book and online seminars with the title, “The Unseen Realm”, are greatly appreciated. For Chapter 12 of Revelation he offers another book with fascinating insight to understanding. “Reversing Hermon”

1/3 of stars swept away

Dan8:10 It grew great, even to the host of heaven. And some of the host and some of the stars it threw down to the ground and trampled on them.

Scofield, C. I. “Scofield Reference Notes on Hebrews 1”. “Scofield Reference Notes (1917 Edition)”.  Fallen angels. Two classes of these are mentioned: (1) “The angels which kept not their first estate place, but left their own habitation,” are “chained under darkness,” awaiting judgment. 2 Peter 2:4Jude 1:61 Corinthians 6:3John 5:22. (See Scofield “Genesis 6:4“) (2) The angels who have Satan Genesis 3:1 as leader. (See Scofield “Revelation 20:10“) . The origin of these is nowhere explicitly revealed. They may be identical with the demons. (See Scofield Matthew 7:22 “For Satan and his angels everlasting fire is prepared. Matthew 25:41Revelation 20:10
Gen 6:4 Scofield Commentary Some hold that these “sons of God” were the “angels which kept not their first estate” Jude 1:6. It is asserted that the title is in the O.T. exclusively used of angels. But this is an error Isaiah 43:6. Angels are spoken of in a sexless way. No female angels are mentioned in Scripture, and we are expressly told that marriage is unknown among angels. Matthew 22:30.
The uniform Hebrew and Christian interpretation has been that verse Genesis 6:2 marks the breaking down of the separation between the godly line of Seth and the godless line of Cain (*See Dr Heiser’s books), and so the failure of the testimony of Jehovah committed to the line of Seth Genesis 4:26. For apostasy there is no remedy but judgment ; Isaiah 1:2-7,24,25Hebrews 6:4-810:26-31. Noah, “a preacher of righteousness,” is given 120 years, but he won no convert, and the judgment predicted by his great- grandfather fell ; Jude 1:14,15Genesis 7:11.

Rev 12:5  She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne. Rev 2:27; Dan7:14; 1 Cor 2:7-8;

Her Child
C. The child.
1. (5) Jesus’ ministry is described by its earthly beginning and end.
She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.
a. A male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: Clearly, this refers to Jesus Christ, the Messiah. He rules the world with a rod of iron (Psalm 2 and Revelation19:15).
b. She bore a male Child refers to Jesus’ birth. Rule all nations with a rod of iron refers to the triumphant return of Jesus. By stating the “bookends” of Jesus’ earthly work, John alludes to all that stands in between.
1. “After a conflict with the Prince of this world, who came and tried Him, but found nothing in Him, the Son of the woman was taken up to heaven and sat on the right hand of God. Words can hardly be plainer than these.” (Alford)

c. This male Child is obviously Jesus. This means that the woman of Revelation 12:1 cannot be the church, because Jesus “gives birth” to the church, not the other way around. The woman must therefore either be Mary or Israel, the only two “women” who could have “given birth” to Jesus. The rest of Revelation 12 will demonstrate that this woman is Israel, not Mary.

Dan7:14 And there was given Him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve Him: His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

1 Cor 2:7  But we speak the wisdom of God in a mystery, [even] the hidden [wisdom], which God ordained before the world unto our glory: Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known [it], they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

 

Rev 12:6  Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days. Rev 11:2,3; 12:6,14; 13:5; Dan 7:25; 12:7;

 

1260 Days

 

Dan7:25 And he shall speak [great] words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time.

Dan 12:7  And I heard the man clothed in linen, which [was] upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that [it shall be] for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these [things] shall be finished.

 

WAR AND VICTORY

 
The leaders of the world will be saying, “Peace, peace,” and the calamity around us may be shocking, but in an instant we who remain will be changed and delivered from His wrath, according to His promises! Amen! 
 
Deu 32:30 How could one chase a thousand, And two put ten thousand to flight, Unless their Rock had sold them, And the LORD had surrendered them? ISIS chasing and putting ten thousand to flight?

HAS THE DRAGON GIVEN ISIS and or Iran HIS POWER, HIS THRONE, AND GREAT AUTHORITY?

This ‘great, fiery red dragon has 7 heads, 10 horns, 7 diadems (crowns). (12:3) Satan
The beast that rises up out of the sea (our of the world of men) has 7 heads, 10 horns and 10 crowns. (13:1) Gentile World Power controlled/led by Satan  T
he Scarlet Coloured Beast! Full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns! Every nation/state of the Middle East has united against Israel, with plans for her destruction! 7 heads, 10 horns, all of them united! The struggle amongst the nations/states of ‘The Scarlet Coloured Beast’ is ‘who‘ will be their ‘leader’!  

Rev 13:18  Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred threescore and  six.

Zecharia 12:3 And in that day will I make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

Rev 12:7  And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought,  Dan 10:13,21; 12:1; Jude 1:9; 

Michael is one of the Chief Princes
And he Stands up for Israel
 

Dan 10:13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
21But I will shew thee that which is noted in the scripture of truth: and there is none that holdeth with me in these things, but Michael your prince.

Dan 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation [even] to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.

Jude 1:9  Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.

 

Rev 12:8  but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer.

 

Rev 12:9  So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.  Rev 9:2,11; 11:7; 12:3,7,9,13; 13-1; 17:3,8,16; 19:20;20:2,3,10; Job 1:7; Isa 27:1; Luke 10:18;

Job 1:7  And the LORD said unto Satan, Whence comest thou? Then Satan answered the LORD, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.

Isa 27:1  In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that [is] in the sea.

Luke 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

Rev 12:10  Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down.”

 

Rev 12:11  “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” Zech 4:6; Acts10:43; Rom3:25; Eph 1:7;Col 1:14;

 

Zech 4:6  Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This [is] the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

Acts 10:43  To him give all the prophets witness, that through his name whosoever believeth in him shall receive remission of sins.

Rom3:25 Whom God hath set forth [to be] a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;

Eph 1:7  In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;

Col1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins:

WOE

Rev 12:12  “Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”
