Revelation/Raz Galah/Secrets Revealed: 12:1: And there appeared a great wonder in shamayim; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars:

Revelation 12:1 is actually describing a constellation in the shamayim. In ancient times through oral tradition it was through the stars that YaHVeH told the story of HIS plan of Yahshua/Salvation (Mat.13:35; 1 Kepha 1:20; Rev. 13:8; Yir./Jer. 10:2, 7). You would’ve known where to look in the sky for this constellation of stars that tied in with the sun and moon.

Satan through the use of unrepentant men and their pagan traditions has deceived and counterfeited this truth, which was once given to the believing fathers, from Adam, Enoch, Noach, Abraham, Yitschaq and Ya’akob and passed down orally to their children. Now upon generation upon generation Satan has cultivated this counterfeit version of the truth and once again confused/Babel the entire world into believing a lie.

A woman clothed with the sun:

{Yasha'Yah/Isaiah: 30:26: Moreover the light of the moon shall be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun shall be sevenfold, as the light of seven days, in the day that YaHVeH binds up the breach of HIS people, and heals the stroke of their wound.

Yasha'Yah/Isa.: 60:20: Your sun shall no more go down; neither shall your moon withdraw itself: for YaHVeH shall be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.}

I have heard some people say this woman is the Ekklesia (moed/congregation/assembly/called out) of YaHVeH and others say it is the children of Yisrael. I believe the woman represents the children of Yisrael (Yahshua Mashiyach's “inheritance” not the virgin bride) because when you read later in the verse this woman is giving birth to a child. Sense this woman is not called a whore or harlot this woman must have a husband because she has been impregnated. Remember the bride of Yahshua is a virgin (II Corinthians 11:2).  Where in scripture does it say the children of Yisrael will call YaHVeH my husband?

{Yasha'Yah:54:5: for your MAKER is your husband; YaHVeH of hosts is HIS name; and your Redeemer the Kadosh One of Yisrael; The Elohiym of the entire earth shall HE be called.

6.  For YaHVeH has called you as a woman forsaken and grieved in ruach, and a wife of youth, when you were refused, says your Elohiym.}

It is clear to me that this woman in Revelation 12 represents the children of Yisrael (physical flesh blood nation) and not YaHVeH’s Ekklesia (Body of Yahshua), the called out ones. The sun represents YaHVeH’s salvation (T`hiyliym/T`hiyliym 80). The moon represents that the woman has overcome the darkness of sin and Satan (T`hiyliym 107:14) and the12 stars represent the 12 tribes of Yisrael, which the 12 Messengers/Emissaries will be ruling over each tribe (T`hiyliym 122:5; Matith`Yah 19:28).

Revelation: 12:2: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.

This child represents Yahshua the Mashiyach and YaHVeH’s Ekklesia (The head of YaHVeH's Ekklesia, Ephesians 5:23 is Yahshua). Travailing in birth represents the "Great Tribulation"/"Ya`akob`s Trouble". It was through the bloodline (Tribe of Yahudah B`reshiyth/Genesis 49:8-12) of the children of Yisrael (The woman) that our Savior was born. It was through the children of Yisrael that YaHVeH’s  Ekklesia began (Yasha`Yah 11:10; Acts 9:15; Romans 11:17). You can look at the child that was born as being a complete Body. The head of the child has already come out, which represents Yahshua; now the rest of the body must be born, which is YaHVeH’s Ekklesia (Romans 12:5). The woman has been in labor pain ever since the head came out:

{Yirmi'Yah/Jeremiah: 4:31: For I have heard a voice as of a woman in travail, and the anguish as of her that brings forth her first child, the voice of the daughter of Ziyon, that bewails herself, that spreads her hands, saying, Woe is me now!  For my life/hay is wearied because of murderers.

YirmiYah: 6:24: We have heard the fame of it: our hands wax feeble: anguish has taken hold of us, and pain, as of a woman in travail.

YirmiYah:13:21: What will you say when HE shall punish you?  for you have taught them to be captains, and as chief over you: shall not sorrows take you, as a woman in travail?}

Refer Yirmi'Yah chapter 3, Yechizki'Yah/Ezekiel chapter 16 verse 1-14 and Zechar'Yah/Zechariah chapter 5 verse 7-11. 

The twelve stars represent the twelve tribes of Yisrael see B`reshiyth chapter 49. Remember Yahshua the Rabbi said that He was going to put each of the chosen Emissaries over each tribe of Yisrael:

 

{Matith`Yah/Matthew: 19:28: And Yahshua said to them, Truly I say to you, that you all which have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Ben of Adam shall sit in the throne of His doxa G1391/kabod H3519 /splendor, you all also shall sit on twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Yisrael.

 

Luke: 22:30: That you all eat and drink at My table in My kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Yisrael.}

 

Remember all twelve tribes of Yisrael represent the woman the capital is Yahvshalayim, Yahvshalayim is her private part and she is travailing to give birth, who is the child about to be born?

Revelation: 12:3: And there appeared another wonder in shamayim; and observe a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns on his heads.

What you need to notice about this verse is that YaHVeH makes no distinction between the seven heads and ten horns and Satan; in YaHVeH’s eyes they are one and the same. Satan is the ruler and “god” of the seven heads and ten horns beast system.

Later on in the chapter I will provide more detail of whom and what these seven heads and ten horns on the dragon are.

 

Now if the woman of verse 1 is an astronomical constellation than so is the red dragon of verse 3.

 

I found this information on this website: Scriptural Constellations

 

The third decan is the Dragon (Draco). It is found at the very top of the sky (the ecliptic pole, the center of the upper circle in Figure 1). In this context, it represents Satan who wanted to exalt himself to the top of the heavens (Isa. 14:12-13). He is coiled in such a way that the folds of his tail open up such that they could be said to hold about one third of the stars of heaven. Accordingly, this was most likely the great red dragon sign (constellation) seen in the heavens seen by John (Rev. 12:3-4). Again, this is the dragon whose head is found under the foot of Hercules. Thus, these three constellations fit nicely with the theme of Satan having been overcome.”

 

We know the “red dragon” is Satan (Revelation 12:9). It is Satan’s influence over these gentile kings (seven heads and ten horns) that leads these kingdoms to persecute the woman (children of Yisrael) that is still in labor pains:

This is how I understand it:

1)  The woman = Children (both houses) of Yisrael (Rev. 12:1).

2)  Revelation 12:4: is speaking of the woman (the entire house of Ya'akob) about to give birth to YaHVeH’s Ekklesia (bride of Yahshua the Body of Yahshua). You must also remember this Revelation given to Yahn/Yahvchanan was given after Yahshua ascended to shamayim. The “dragon” cannot devour Yahshua, he can no longer harm our Savior physically at all, but he still can physically harm the kadoshiym.

3)  Revelation 12:5: Is speaking of Yahshua who has already been born. Remember Yahshua is head of the Body. The head is ruler of the wife (Ephesians 5:23). The bride of Yahshua has not been born yet.

4)  Revelation 12:6: Now references back to verse 4 where the woman is fed so that YaHVeH`s Ekklesia can be born.

There is a schoolmaster in the scriptures that I have never really heard anyone consider before, might be someone has and I have never heard it. YaHVeH receives the esteem and praise it is through HIM that these ruach/hidden things are revealed. The story of Ya'akob marrying Leah and Rachel in B`reshiyth 29 I believe is the schoolmaster to help us understand this woman in Revelation 12. Remember Isaac/Yitschaq sent Ya'akob to his mother’s relatives in Padan-aram to the east, because Yitschaq did not want Ya'akob to marry a Kena`aniy woman (Genesis 28). Ya'akob fell in love with Rachel on first site. Ya'akob told Laban his uncle he would work seven years for Rachel. Ya'akob completed his seven years and wound up with Leah a wife he didn’t ask for or love. Ya'akob kept her as his wife, he did not divorce her (Yasha`Yah 50:1-2; Yirmiyah 3 & 4; Hoshea 2). Ya'akob had to agree for another seven years so he could freely leave with Rachel, the wife he loved.

1)  Leah = The Woman of Revelation 12 the children of Yisrael, the entire house of Ya'akob, Yahshua’s “inheritance” (Yasha`Yah 19:25). Remember an inheritance is not something you ask for it is something you receive because it has been given to you.

2)  Rachel = the bride of Yahshua a chase virgin (I Corinthians 11:2) the child about to be born (Rev. 12:4; Mat. 3:5-6; I Cor. 15:52). 

Remember verse 4 is speaking about when Satan is cast out of shamayim. This scene picks up in Revelation 9. The Great Tribulation has a physical and ruach purpose.

1) The physical purpose is to punish the entire house of Ya`akob (woman) for their disobedience. There will be a small remnant (Yasha`Yah 10:20-22; 11:11; Yirmi`Yah 16:14-16) of the physical flesh and blood (I Cor. 15:50) tribes of Yisrael left after the Great Tribulation is over. YaHVeH will use the gentile nations to punish the children of Yisrael (5th seal/5th trumpet/1st Woe & 6th seal/6th trumpet/2nd Woe). The children of Yisrael will be delivered from the Great Tribulation at the sound of the 7th trumpet 3rd Woe.

2)  The ruach purpose is to purge (Yechizki`Yah 5:3-4; Matith`Yah 3:11) YaHVeH’s “very elect” (Mat. 24:24) from the errors  and lies of the “Mother of Harlots”. The “very elect” (Ekklesia) will be changed (born again Yahn 3:5-6; I  Corinthians 15:52) after the birth pains of the woman are over, this will be at the sound of the 7th  trumpet.

The picture is beginning to become clearer. Looking through the glass more defined (I Corinthians 13:12; Daniel 12:4).

It is of utmost importance that we as believer’s in the blood and resurrection of Yahshua the Mashiyach from Nazareth understand, and clearly distinguish between the two women that the scriptures are speaking about. Shaul/Paul labored to teach this to the early congregation/moed/ekklesia of YaHVeH and he continues to teach us today, because it is the majority of his Messianic writings that have access to for us to read and gleam from. Those that cannot understand this will continue to misunderstand scripture and almost always try to set up the nation of Yisrael before Yahshua returns.

You must understand the Body of Yahshua is NOT the woman who is already married to Him (Hoshea 2:7,16). The woman that is already married to Him is now in a divorce state (Yirmi`Yah 3:8) and in labor pains with child until our Savior returns (Revelation 12:2). Remember and have this firmly planted in your mind: The Body of Yahshua is a virgin bride (II Corinthians 11:2; Mat. 25:1) waiting for the bridegroom to return. A virgin bride is a female, a woman who has not had sexual relations with any man (corrupted by pagan man made religion/idolatry). The woman in Revelation 12 has already had intercourse, because she is in birth pains ready to deliver. She has been in labor pains ever since the head appeared (Ephesians 5:23; Rev. 1:5) and she is in continual labor for the rest of the Body to be born!

1) The 1st wife (woman/Leah) already married to Yahshua and in birth pains (Hoshea 2:7; Rev. 12:2) = Children of Yisrael physical flesh blood descendants. There will be a physical flesh and blood remnant left alive that Yahshua will bring back and place in the Promised Land (Yasha`Yah 11:11) at the sound of the 7th trumpet. 

2) The virgin bride 2nd wife (woman/Rachel) = children of Yisrael and Gentile people; no longer considered Gentile nor do they consdier themselves to be Gentile anymore, because they have repented from and given up their pagan idolatrous ways (Romans 11; Galatians 3:28). We will be in the first resurrection (Rev. 20:6) and changed from corruptible to incorruptible at the sound of the 7th trumpet (I Corinthians 15:52).
