… “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” (Revelation 12:1).
This is one of the major “signs in the heavens” in the book of Revelation. This beginning verse in chapter twelve (12) introduces us to a whole series of sequential events surrounding this sign. It is a sign that says a number of things are going to happen and describes them somewhat sequentially. Those affected include Christians, the Jews and a Jewish Remnant. This sign literally occurred (past tense) on September 23, 2017. Mr. Scott Clarke, a Christian researcher, discovered the literalness of this sign, which has also been confirmed and verified by others. From a Christian’s perspective, the sign and its following four (4) verses communicate the Rapture/Harpazo of the Christian Church (the ‘child’). These verses also communicate that Christians will co-rule with Christ during his 1,000 year Millennial Reign with a “rod of iron.” This is the strongest, most cut-and-dry indication of the Rapture/Harpazo of the Church in all of Revelation. Elsewhere in this book, I provide a long list of reasons provided by the book of Revelation for the pre-tribulation rapture of the Church. However, I believe that Revelation 12:5 provides the strongest indication for the Rapture/Harpazo of the Church.
The point is to keep the literal occurrence in your mind when considering all of the other prophecies coming to pass very recently. Again, this suggests a CONVERGENCE of all of these things and a ‘season’ of the times prior to the Tribulation period.
