The Male Child of the Apocalypse

Permalink   
 

 

Many have tried to understand the 12th chapter of revelation, and have come up with many different interpretations. A woman, clothed with the Sun, and the Moon at her feet and Twelve Stars around her head. The Dragon that sits at her feet to devour her child, and the male child who is 'born' and caught up to heaven.

This symbolism is drawn right out of the book of Genesis, and it is here that we must start are interpretation.

Joseph has a dream in which the Sun, Moon and Eleven stars, come and bow down to Joseph, who was the 12th star. Jacob, known as Israel, asks his son if he (Jacob) and his (Joseph's) mother, and his eleven brothers were going to bow down to him. So, in this symbolism, the Sun is a Father figure, the Moon is a Mother figure, and the Eleven stars are are the Sons.

If we take the entire teaching of the Word, and especially that of the Revelation, we can come to a proper interpretation of chapter 12.

The Woman, would be the believing remnant nation of Israel, that flees into the wilderness in the last half of the tribulation (and that at Y'shua's words, 'when you see Jerusalem encompassed by armies...). I have already posted that at this point in time, they will probably flee to Mt. Sinai, for the re-inauguration of the theocracy, which we need to keep in mind.

The Sun would be a 'father' figure in Israel at this time, and the Moon would be a 'mother' figure, and it should be apparent, that this would be the two witness-the two olive branches- which minister to the woman in the wilderness, during the latter half of the tribulation. So, it should come as no surprise that the typology of the Sun would be fulfilled by Moses, a father figure in Israel's history, and the typology of the Moon would be fulfilled by Elijah, a 'mother' figure in Israel, who 'nursed' them through their period of apostasy.

This interpretation is not hard to understand, except to those who insist that the two olive branches arrive at the start of the trib, and not the middle. They really have no internal proof from the Revelation, just a time line that they are trying to prove. And I ask, who better to minister to Israel at the time of the reorganization, then the two greatest prophets of Israel's history. Isn't this what they did the first time.

So, to continue, it should be obvious, from the book of Revelation, who the Stars represent. They are Sons of Israel, and these stars represent the 144,000 Jewish male virgins, 12,000 each from the 12 tribes of Israel. It should be noted that both Dan and Ephraim are omitted from this list, probably because both tribes were known to have the reputation for fighting which is not compatible with preaching the Gospel of the Kingdom.

So then, who is the male child of this chapter. I would point out a couple of things concerning this. When Joseph originally had this dream, his mother was already dead! So, how could the mother bow down to one of her sons (all the other ones did bow down to Joseph). This alone suggests that this event is still future, or the Word of God will be broken concerning this one point. 

Joseph, as stated, was the 12th star in his dream. And, in Revelation, the Male Child would be the 13th 'star' in this vision (the 13th son). This is no coincidence, and every dot of an i and cross of a T is important in the Word, so it is no coincidence that the 13th tribe of Israel, is the lost tribe of Ephraim, the other one missing from the list.

This shows that this passage is not referring to Y'shua, who was from the tribe of Judah the Royal Tribe.

The structure of the book suggests that these events occur after the Rapture. All these passages occur "after these things", which is the outline for the book that has stood the test of time, and all of these passages occur after this. This shows us that the birth of this male child, also occurs after the Rapture. It should be noted that this 'birth' is referring to his commissioning, not physical birth. 


The ten horns of Daniel, find their counterpart here, but notice that here they have their crowns, hence they have received their kingdom. These kings, and the dragon who controls and uses them, are contemporaries with this male child. Now, John received this vision in 90 AD, and the Angel then told him that these kings had not yet received their kingdoms. This is well over 40 years after our Lord was caught up to heaven, yet these kings are not yet on the scene.

And this will also be supported by other passages in the Book. In one of the letters Y'shua tells the overcomer, that he will rule the world with a rod of Iron. This passage, from Ps 2 is specifically Messianic and is referring to Y'shua. But He Himself applies it to the overcomer of one of the churches. And is also finds its fulfillment in 12:5 with the exact same words, concerning this male child. Hence, the male child is an overcomer from the end times church of Thyatira. He is specifically left behind at the Rapture, to be "A witness, leader and commander" which is a quote from the Old Testament, concerning this individual. This is important, for God will not leave Himself without a witness, and if the two olive tree's show up at the mid point, the who witnesses to Israel in the first half of the trib? Here you have the witness internally recorded in the revelation ("The voice said cry, and he said, 'what shall I cry'" who is this individual that asks the voice what he should cry, as recorded in Is 40 dealing with end times events?)
