But the Comforter, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said unto you. - John 14:26
A Journey through the Book of Revelation
Rom 1:5, "For we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name."
[This teaching follows from the just published booklet "The Mystery of God would be finished - a journey through the Book of Revelation 1 -11". This is the first in a new series of teachings that will journey through the remaining chapters of Revelation. If you have not read the booklet and would like a copy, please reply by email and we will send an e-copy of the booklet to you.]
The apostle John had just seen "the two witnesses" in Revelation 11. This was a vision of the witnessing church overcoming the world. This culminated in the kingdom of God consuming all the kingdoms of this world under the lordship and rule of Christ (Rev.11:15). As John continues to receive the vision, the revelation of Jesus Christ unfolds further, showing the victory of Christ and His church in another way as we come to Revelation 12. Do not get caught thinking that the Book of Revelation is written in a chronology of events on a timescale. It is revelation upon revelation of God's unfolding plan. It is the mystery of Christ and His church being revealed.
After the revelation of the witnessing church the apostle John says, "Now a great sign appeared in heaven" Revelation 12:1a. Signs are indicators, leading us to the destination. God shows signs to encourage us on the journey. Signs help us to stay on track. Signs reveal to us what we are about to encounter or experience. God created the sun, moon and stars for "signs and seasons" Genesis 1:14-15. John saw a sign in heaven that had the sun, moon and stars involved. This sign is cosmic in its scope! It was a sign in heaven! It is an awesome sign pointing to something with huge impact in the spiritual realm! ...........
