Revelation 12, The Exit Sign and Imminence

Image
We have had it pounded into our heads from the first time we studied prophecy that Jesus could return at any moment (I like that idea).  Lately we have had many people persuade us that no, Jesus will fulfill one of His appointed times when He returns for His bride.  The most likely appointed time would be the Feast of Trumpets (I like that idea too).  But which is it?  Is imminence real? And does the Rev 12 Sign settle the argument? 

Perhaps this article will add some clarity, from Greg Lauer at www.alittlestrength.com:
What I want to do in this article is discuss both the doctrine imminence and its corollary that states the Rapture is a signless event, and the relationship of both to the REV12 sign. Many people in the Church today, especially established minsters, are staunchly rejecting the validity of the REV12 sign due to concerns that it violates the doctrine of imminence, and in a similar manner many balk at the existence of an alleged sign for a signless event.

The Balaamic Prophecies of 2017 | Unsealed.org

Image
This article is awesome in it's breadth and scope. God is so much bigger and wiser and powerful than we could ever imagine...and on that same note I believe His book is deeper and filled with more nuggets and connections than we will ever could imagine. Every word matters. Here is an excerpt:
This article is intended to familiarize you with a concept that one of our forum members coined "Balaamic Prophecies".  Once familiarized you'll see that God is far more powerful and intelligent than you could have imagined.  He controls and upholds all things.  Everything is by design.  Everything points to Christ.  The evidence of His existence and power is so abundant, obvious, and profound that men are without excuse. http://www.unsealed.org/2017/06/the-balaamic-prophecies-of-2017.html

Proof of the Rapture in Revelation 12

Image
A lot of sceptics of this sign seem to think that this idea of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture in Revelation 12 is some crazy new idea. Most of these people would be shocked to learn that this interpretation has been around since the 1800's and it was held by the father of the Pre-Tribulation Rapture movement.... John Nelson Darby! 
In fact, Rev 12:5 is considered by brilliant men such as Darby (1839), Wordsworth (1849), Baxter (1863),  Kelly (1870), Chester (1882), Worrel (1900), Blackstone (1904), Henry Ironside (1919) as proof of the Church being caught up to Christ.  Darby and others saw it as the KEY exegetical proof of a Pre-Tribulation Rapture since it clearly shows WHEN the rapture happens.   Many of you have heard Scott Clarke talk about Dr. Michael Svigel's work... now you can read for yourself the foundational paper that clearly lays out the thoughts of many solid theologians from years past connecting Revelation 12 and the rapture.
As far as I know, this is the only …

Jerry Toney - A Strong Word to the Watchman

Image
Jerry's words were strong, but I think its good to be shaken up a bit every once in a while. When we share about the sign (and God's word in general) are we giving people the full story of the Gospel....including repentance?  If not, you might be guilty of tickling ears.

A Word About Uniqueness...

Image
In the previous post I put out a video and a link talking about the EarthSky attempted debunking of the Revelation 12 Sign.  Their primary argument was that this is not unique.  I would like to make a simple argument against their logic using of all things - the lottery.  (Editor Note: Don't play the lottery)


As most of you know, there are at least 6 things that all must happen for this prophecy to be fulfilled.  In the same way a Powerball Lottery player must have all 6 numbered balls selected in order to win.   The first 5 balls can be in any order, but the last ball, the Power Ball, is special and you must have that one correct too in order to win the top prize.  It is fairly common to get 3, 4, even 5 balls right.  But to get all 5, PLUS the Powerball is extremely rare...that's why the payout amount jumps so high with that 6th ball...the odds shoot up astronomically with it.

For this fulfillment to occur, just like a winning lottery ticket, everything must match...includi…

Secular Scientists are Checking Out Rev 12

Image
Paul from the Zeus Mossbender Channel put out this urgent prophecy alert yesterday.... Check out this 3 minute video about something pretty interesting he discovered on the popular secular EarthSky astronomy website.
Watch the video and check out the website.  The astronomers primary point is this:
The alignment is not unique.

Unfortunately, he is missing something...
What he fails to mention is the most special feature of the entire sign; Jupiter's loop inside the womb of Virgo for the period of a human pregnancy!  That is what makes the sign so unique, and you can't debunk this sign without addressing that aspect of it. None of this should surprise any of us.  In fact, weeks ago Gary at Unsealed did the most amazing article, including a specific rebuttal (including a spreadsheet) debunking this often tried criticism.  His spreadsheet and a portion of his analysis on this topic are below for a refresher, but I encourage you to visit the link and read the entire thing if you ha…

A.V. Rauf on Revelation 12 and The Year 2017

Image
This is one of the best descriptions of the Revelation 12 Sign I have ever seen.  It was posted back in March, but I suspect it hasn't gotten nearly the traction it deserves.  A.V. Rauf knocks it out of the park with this concise but weighty breakdown of the prophecy. 
I was going to place an excerpt here but I literally cannot decide which part to use as it is all so good!   You will just have to read it all and definitely share...

Latest from Unsealed - Jupiter Jubilee

Image
Excerpt: Jupiter's orbit around the Sun and passage through Virgo follows a similar pattern. Jupiter orbits the Sun every 11.86 years, a non-integer and incomplete number. Earth orbits the Sun in exactly one year with no remainder. Since Jupiter's complete orbit consists of an incomplete number of years, its track around the Sun never aligns with the earth - except for Jupiter's 50th orbit. Jupiter always completes exactly 50 orbits around the Sun in exactly 593 years. In other words, Jupiter's 50th orbit always completes at the same time earth's orbit completes and Jupiter's 50th orbit is the only time this happens. In this sense the orbits of earth and Jupiter are "synced" every 593 years, or the exact time it takes for Jupiter to orbit the Sun 50 times. You might call this a "Jupiter Jubilee".

How to Act as We Wait...

Image
My brother Adam from the Parable of the Vineyard channel has put out another video, this time addressing how we are to act as we are waiting for the Lord. I agree with Adam and the verses he points to and would add that all that we do should be done in love (1 Cor 16:14) and that includes how we interact with others who do not see what we see. I was as heartbroken and upset as anyone when Billy Crone went on various well respected programs to "debunk" this Great Sign using misleading information. I was tore up inside, but in all my communications with Pastor Billy, Jan Markell, and others, I strived to be loving and respectful as to not hurt my witness or sin against God. Yes, there is a righteous anger... but in our anger we should not sin (Eph 4:26).

I also appreciate Adam's plug for this site.  Our goal is to develop a resource that informs and encourages The Body of Christ as we expectantly wait.  Basically a one stop shop for the best info as a fellow watchman …

Take No Thought for Tomorrow...

Paul from the Zeus Mossbender Channel has put out another much anticipated video.  His heart and vulnerability regarding all that has come upon him recently, and his HOPE is almost tangible through the video... 

One of my favorite lines regarding the scoffers of the sign...

You know what I'm talking about and you know every one one of their arguments can be burned right down to the ground....

These Numbers are getting People's Attention....

This article ties in perfectly with Daniel Matson's latest video below....
Here is an excerpt...

In summary, I don’t know what to think of some of this, but in light of the talk of moving the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem, the talk of a peace treaty this 2017, it being 50 years since 1967, it being 70 years since 1947, the upcoming total eclipse of the sun, the Revelation 12 sign on Rosh Hashanah, etc. These amazing numbers are getting my attention.

2 Thought Provoking Videos about Rev 12

Andy over at the Firecharger YouTube Channel put together a couple videos that I thought are worth watching. I love listening to his train of thought... especially on this subject!  The first one is a 3 minute preview of sorts, the second one is 17 min.


Personal Thoughts on Watching This Sign

I originally sent the note below to Daniel Matson back in March (long before this site started) as we discussed the implications of all that has been discovered regarding this sign.  Daniel then asked me if he could post this on his Facebook page.  These thoughts seemed to open up much discussion so I thought it would be worthwhile sharing here.  Let me know your thoughts in the comments section if you feel led...


So regarding all that we have learned leading up to this, at times I feel so torn because on one hand there is so much biblical and astronomical evidence pointing to this coming time as being hugely significant. Seemingly never ending amounts of evidence and biblical insights that potentially point to world changing events, possibly even the Rapture and start of the Tribulation. So all that I’ve learned is impossible to ignore, The Spirit will not let me ignore it….and the implications are so profound that to ignore it would be not only cowardly but even disobedient to al…

Taking this directly from an email from Luis...



Hello, Great idea and site to have a hub from all those that have contributed to the study of the sign.
Here is my latest article and 2 charts in pdf format online links and in png’s to see which will work best for your site. I am though, of the persuasion that the Rapture is of a Pentecost season but open-minded.

Blessings, Lu

9-23-17 From a Different Angle

Image
We have all seen the alignment of planets on September 23rd from the perspective of standing on Earth through Stellarium.  However, TheSkyLive has a 3D Solar System Simulator that gives you  view of the planets from outside the solar system.  You can change the time, set it in motion, and rotate to any angle, and even turn on various Comets, etc.  I have found it to be pretty cool tool to become more familiar with how the planets are actually rotating around the sun to come into the final alignment for the great sign and increase your understanding of astronomy in general.

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
