Does anyone believe we are actually close to the end times? I mean, within this generation? I see just too many signs: Bar codes, Social Security Numbers, Unrest in the middle east, a Peace Treaty that is supposed to be signed soon by Palestine and Israel. I am starting to look for that "all-mighty" person to appear as a peacemaker. Weather is running havoc all over the world. Rebellion is at an all-time high with children. What's next?

And . . . had Christ not shortened the time no flesh would be saved. The time for making a decision for Christ is now, not then. For it will be harder to resist the idea of taking the mark or being killed. No one truly desires to be a marytr. However, only a remnant of Israel will be spared.

if you read that entire revelation you will know it is mother Mary and Jesus,Herod chased after them, 5 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.the war broke out because Satan knew he was defeated, that was why he chased him inside of Herod's body,

The Sun-Clothed Woman
1. Israel is often spoken of as a woman married to God under the terms of the old covenant(Isaiah 54:1-6,Jeremiah 3:1-14, Hosea 2:14-23).
2.The church is more often referred to in masculine language, as the body of Christ. Furthermore, the church is already raptured at this point(Rev. 4:1).Therefore, the church could not be the sun-clothed woman of Rev. 12.
3. The false church is spoken of as a woman, a great whore (Rev. 17), but this could not be the sun-clothed woman.

4. The Bible mentions only 3 classes of people today:the church,Jews,Gentiles (1 Cor. 10:32).At the middle of Daniel's 70th week when the woman travails and brings forth the man-child,the church has been gone from the earth for at least 3 1/2 years(Rev. 4:1).This leaves only 2 classes after the rapture:Jews and Gentiles.The woman could not symbolize the Gentiles,because they are the ones persecuting her. Therefore,the woman must symbolize national Israel.

By the term "Israel" we mean national Israel,or Israel as a nation,not as scattered among the nations.Israel now has been a nation since 1948.Many Jews will continue in all lands until they are completely gathered at the second coming (Matthew 24:29-31,Isaiah 11:11-12,Ezekiel 37).
5.Israel is the one primarily dealt with in Rev. 4-19,not the church.
6.The sun,moon,and 12 stars symbolize Israel,as proved in Genesis 37:9-11.

7.The Jews are the only people in Scripture spoken of as going through travail in the last days(Rev.12:2-5,Matthew 24:8,Mark 13:8,Isaiah 66:7-8,Jeremiah 30:6-9,Micah 5:3,Zech.12:10-13:1).
8. Israel is identified as the woman by the wars against her and her seed.The same predictions of this woman are found in connection with Israel in the Old Testament so they must be the same(Daniel 7:21,8:9-14,24-25,9:27,11:40-45,12:1,7,Joel 3,Zech. 12:1-9,13:8-9,14:1-21).

9. The whole 70th week of Daniel 9:27 concerns Israel and Jerusalem, as did the first 69 weeks (Dan.9:24-27).The church did not once mention in connection with these last day events.
10. The persecution, flight, and protection of the woman in the wilderness prove her to be Israel(Rev.12:6,13-16).

Keep God's Commandments instead of the Beasts and you will not recieve his mark.

Woman represents Israel. A remnant of Israel is miraculously protected at the city of Petra in the desert south of Jerusalem.
---mima on 1/10/08

The woman who flees into the wilderness is Isreal, You can find the story of the woman and the dragon in Revelation 12. The only proctection from the Antichrist (also known as the beast) and the false profet is for the Isrealis who believe in the Lord Jesus Christ at the last half of the tribulation (also known as the Great Tribulation).

"First off, the CHURCH is the New Israel."

But the "woman" in Revelation 12 is the nation Israel.
---Kay on 10/27/06

** Woman represents Israel. A remnant of Israel is miraculously protected at the city of Petra in the desert south of Jerusalem.**

First off, the CHURCH is the New Israel.

Second,there's a lovely myth among dispensationalists about fleeing to Petra during the Tribulation, but a simple Wikipedia search will show the impracticality of that action.

Linda, Yes! Those who were sealed also having God's mark on their forehead in the earlier chapters of Revelations are those who have overcome the beast and they "Sing the Song of Moses".
