Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman…And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads…And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.” Revelation 12:1, 3, 15

GOD’S CREATIONS: BEAUTY AND WISDOM

.

“For this shall every one that is godly pray unto Thee in a time when Thou mayest be found: surely in the floods of great waters they shall not come nigh unto Him.” Psalm 32:6

.

The majestic waves of the sea. One of the most beautiful creations in nature! The sounds of the crashing surf!  The moist wind and spray upon one’s face! Truly, standing upon the sand, and facing the ocean surf overwhelms all the human senses! It’s quite an exhilarating experience to say the least!

.

But the ocean and the surf, and the sand were created by God, not merely for beauty’s sake; but also to teach. And the Bible has interwoven many aspects of nature into the Gospel story. And these various things in nature were created by God to instruct Mankind in Bible truths, both good and bad.

.

Waves are used in Scripture to represent both good as well as bad things. And in the black sea of the heavens, is seen a constellation of a dragon. And this dragon is spewing a wave of water out of his mouth. And this article will explore just what all this means. And the Reader is invited to come and behold secrets in the Stars, which have been hidden since Creation; but now are being revealed by God, for such a time as this. So come along and behold these grand heavenly pictures which our great God has inscribed, in the heavenly scroll, and stretched, even from sky to sky.

LOCATION…

winter four constellations

.

The Wave Constellation is primarily comprised of the Auriga Constellation plus one star from Taurus, plus one more star. The Winter Constellations are depicted in this below sketch to the right, and shows this constellation group as they are seen in early winter, as they rise in the eastern skies. The Woman is in the north. The Dragon and Orion are farther south from the Woman.

.

WINTER CONSTELLATIONS-SEEN IN FALL: This sketch to the right is how this constellation group appears in the eastern sky in fall. This is the four primary constellations of the Winter Constellations. They can be seen in this position, in the late fall above the eastern horizon. The Woman of Revelation 12 is commonly called Ursa Major or The Big Dipper and appears in the north. Orion the Soldier is the at the bottom is to the south of the Woman. The The Dragon of Revelation Constellation’s mouth isThe Hyades Cluster, and the tip of his tail is Pleiades, and his Wave of Water is primarily the Auriga constellation. The Glorious Horse Constellation  head is of Perseus Constellation and his rear end is Cassiopeia Constellation.

(Editor’s note: It is impossible to make this chart accurate, and visually correct, because the dome effect of the sky makes these constellations look different than they appear when placed on flat paper.)

 FLOOD WATERS…

.

.

No matter where this constellation is in the night sky, this wave of water is always going towards the path of the Woman of Revelation 12 (Flees to the Wilderness). This wave of water is made of the Auriga Constellation plus two fainter stars closer to the Dragon’s mouth. Let’s see what Scripture has to say about flood waters.  

.

“And the serpent cast out of his mouth WATER AS A FLOOD after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood..” Revelation 12:12.

Revelation 12 Dragon no text

So what do these flood waters represent?  Does the Bible have anything to say about Satan’s flood-waters?

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

THE DRAGON of REVELATION 12 CONSTELLATION . The Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is the very same constellation that comprises the head of Taurus the Bull. In other words, Hyades is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. And Hyades is the mouth of this Dragon.

.

Revelation 12 Dragon w/text

.

The tip of the Dragon’s tail is composed of that star-cluster known as The Pleiades. The Pleiades is actually in the shape of a lion’s furry tassel tip of his tail. The sketch below shows this Pleiades as the tail tip.

.

Now with aid of a dark starry night, you may begin to connect this mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are very well-defined with stars. The front legs are made partially of Taurus. The back legs and rear fin are made of the Cetus Constellation. But the long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus. This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Woman of Revelation 12 (Woman in Travail). The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. The are two more less bright stars which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.

WATER SYMBOLIZES THINGS, GOOD

.

“Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.” James 3:11, 12

.

This above passage really presents plainly, a basic concept concerning the Bible’s use of the word, “water”. In Scripture, water can represent something either good, or bad. For instance, water can represent “Salvation”.

.

Just listen to the Book of James… “Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.” Revelation 22:17.

.

And water also is used to represent the Word of God, as it cleanses the human heart… “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it; That He might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the Word,” Ephesians 5:25, 26

.

.

.

BUT WATER CAN ALSO SYMBOLIZE THINGS, BAD

.

But just what does this Wave of Water Constellation represent in Scripture? Listen… “When the waves of death compassed me…THE FLOODS OF UNGODLY MEN made me afraid. The sorrows of hell compassed me about;” 2nd Samuel 22:5.

.

So this passage (and many others too) equates flood waters with the sorrows of Hell, with ungodly men, and with waves of death.

.

And so then by comparing Scriptures dealing with flood waters, it begins to be seen just what this Woman of Revelation 12 is fleeing from: she flees from the water which the Dragon is spewing.

.

And by looking at various related Scriptures, it becomes clear just what this wave of water represents. This Revelation Ch. 12 Woman is fleeing from ‘waves of death’, from ‘sorrows of Hell’, and from ‘floods of ungodly men’.

.

7 HEADS, 10 HORNS, & 7 CROWNS OF THE DRAGON

.

“And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads.” Revelation 12:3 

.

In Revelation, the Dragon of Revelation 12 is described as having seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. However, the Dragon Constellation up in the night sky does not.Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

But God has faithfully created the wave of water, in such a way, as to illustrate this same concept of the seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns. Because this wave of water is basically composed of ten stars.

.

The main body of the wave has seven stars (#‘s, 1 thru 7). And the tip of the crest of the wave has the other three stars (#’s, 8, 9 & 10). So we have this 7 and 10 numbering. And this gives us a great clue, as to where in the Bible we should look, to find out the riddle as to just what or who do these 7 heads, 10 crowns, and 7 horns represent. Because, the Bible speaks very much about floods and waters as being associated with Satan (the Dragon).

.

But before we explore the floods, let’s look at one more number from that same passage in Revelation…

.

.

.

.

.

COULD “SEVEN KINGS…FIVE ARE FALLEN”

.

REPRESENT THE APOSTATE CHURCH?

.

“And there are seven kings: five are fallen, and one is, and the other is not yet come; and when he comes, he must remain a short space.” Revelation 17:10

.

OK. So this above verse goes with the other verses, we’ve so far mentioned. It speaks of 7 kings. Five are fallen.

.

But where do we find the number “5” in this Wave of Water Constellation?

.

First of all, there are 10 stars which comprise the main body of this wave. But three of those stars comprise the crest or tip of the wave (#’s 8,9 & 10).

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

So that leaves seven other stars. Of the seven remaining stars (#’s 3 thru 7) which comprise the main body of this Wave of Water Constellation, there two stars which are very faint (#’s 1 & 2), while five stars (#’s 3 thru 7) are very bright. (The faint stars must be viewed on a dark night, because they are somewhat harder to see than the other five.) 

.

The main body of this Wave of Water Constellation is composed of the Auriga Constellation.

.

But there are two other faint stars (#’s 1 & 2) which are the closest stars to the Dragon’s mouth, as this sketch shows. The other 5 stars (#’s, 3 thru 7) comprise the main body of this Wave. And these two faint stars, #1 & #2, closest to the Dragon’s mouth, are not part of the Auriga Constellation. One of those faint stars, #2, however, belongs to one of the Taurus Constellation’s horn.

.

.

.

.

.

“FIVE ARE FALLEN” SPEAKS OF APOSTATE CHURCHES

.

The sketch below, are star-charts from Wikipedia, which the web-host has placed together and sketched over, to show these three constellations together.

.

The Lord seems to have done this (made 5 bright stars) to emphasize this above verse, which says, “And there are seven kings: FIVE are fallen…”

winter three fixed

.

And so it appears that God has used this Wave of Water Constellation as a means of illustrating the various components of the Dragon. This phrase, “five are fallen” seems to correspond to the apostate portion of the Church. The number “five” is often used to represent the family of God: either to the “Faithful” or to the “UN-faithful” in God’s house.

.

(Remember that the 5th Commandment is about family? And remember the story of the “5 Wise, and the 5 Unwise Virgins?”)

.

Satan has always used the apostate portion of the Church to infiltrate God’s people. And so why should it surprise anyone, that the apostate portion of the Church is included in this composite Beast. “Fallen” of course, refers to the fallen condition of the apostate Church (“Christ is become of no effect unto you, whosoever of you are justified by the law; ye are fallen from grace.” Galatians 5:4).

.

But this is a very deep subject, and needs to be thoroughly explored. You may want to explore this subject, by reading the following article… “Fleeing to the Mountains- The Abomination in the Churches”

FLOODS OF UNGODLY IN CENTURIES PAST

.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Santo_Domingo_y_los_albigenses-detalle.jpg

 “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.” Isaiah 59:19

.

There could be no greater tribulation than that which took place for a millennium during the Dark Ages. And rightly named the Dark Ages, was this period when the apostate churches of Europe became a tyrannical oppressive power, turning

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Avvakum_by_Myasoyedov.jpeg

 the Christian world into a veritable blood bath, at times. Christians were tortured, burned at the stake, and persecuted until they literally fled to the mountains where they hid for centuries from the Church. Bibles were burned, in attempt to obliterate that truth which condemned the practices and doctrines of that apostate church.

.

And it would do well, for any Christian to spend a few months searching out any possible reading material on that subject, so as to gain a basic understanding of what our Christian forefathers endured through those centuries.

SATAN’S NEW HIGH-TECH FLOODWATERS

.

“I cried by reason of mine affliction unto the LORD, and he heard me; out of the belly of hell cried I, and thou heardest my voice. For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.” Jonah 2:2, 3 

.

.

And while Satan is still using similar means in many places in the Middle East, he has adopted a much different means in the industrialized nations.

.

Satan has flooded this society with materialism and entertainments, and career aspirations, which have greatly paralyzed the Christian world, and made it ineffective, lethargic, and self-satisfied.

.

And now through the means of modern technology as well as education, Satan has implemented a mind-control engine so effective, that he can literally control the masses by a 24/7/365 flood of entertainment, and indoctrination, and…well…to put it crudely, “brainwashing” by means of high-tech devices, and radio and television.

.

These are among the modern-day floods which are covering the world as a deluge equal to the great flood of Noah. Oh it’s true that the less developed nations have not yet been deluged. But even those nations are rapidly changing, becoming more high-tech every day.

.

But remember, “…judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?” 1st Peter 4:17

.

So judgment does not fall on everybody at the same time. It first begins with God professed people.   

.

.

.

.

.

7 STARS RIDING IN THE CRADLE

.

“But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.” James 1:6

.

As of November, 2012, it has become evident that there is another very frightening aspect to this wave of water. As you can see in this sketch, there are seven stars which comprise the trough or valley, or cradle of this wave. This area of the wave, is where an object would logically be swept away or carried away by an actual wave of water in the ocean.

.

Since there are seven stars (letters a,b,c,d,e,f,g) in this valley or cradle, this would indicate that seven stars are probably symbolizing God’s people being swept away by Satan’s Wave of Lying Waters Constellation.

.

Now, at this point, someone would object to this assertion, saying, the Church has not been deceived. The answer to this question could be explored by the three following articles… “Floodwaters of Atheism & Psychology” and “Fleeing to the Mountains-Part 2-The Abomination In Churches” and“Television: The Image That Speaks”

.

.

.

.

.

BEWARE OF DOGMATISM

.

“And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.” 1st Corinthians 8:2

.

The above Bible verse, written by Paul warns us not to become dogmatic in our professed knowledge of things. We know nothing by ourselves. True knowledge is the gift of God, and can be taken from us, if we begin to get proud and worldly-minded.

.

.

.

.

.

.

THE BIBLE IS ITS OWN INTERPRETER

.

But the fact is, that once a teacher goes outside of the Bible and begins to go into the daily newspapers or into history books to explain Revelation, there needs to be a very guarded reservation on the part of Bible students. These conclusions are merely the opinions of men.

 

.http://pt.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ficheiro:Old_book_-_Basking_Ridge_Historical_Society_(1).jpg

And while we don’t want to become close-minded, we should nevertheless realize that we are listening to fallible humans on extremely difficult matters, which, in the end, only the Holy Spirit can reveal.

.

Rather than merely letting others do our homework for us, each of us should do our own study, and come up with our own conclusion. And when our teachers begin to give the impression that their conclusions  are above correction, should “send up red flags” that something is very wrong.

.

God has made clear as noonday every truth from Scripture, necessary for Salvation. The great truths, such as the deity of Christ and His sacrifice for sin and sinners, is made plain for us to know. But Bible prophecy concerning future events has not been made so clear. Rather, they have been purposely very difficult to understand.

 

.

But contrary to popular opinion, we need never look into history books or newspapers to form an opinion on Bible prophecy. But as far as Bible prophecy, God has not made these things so very clear to a great extent. And the important thing, when desiring God to show us truth in these difficult doctrines, is to not become dogmatic about our opinions. Dogmatism is a form of pride, and will eventually lead us down the pathway of fools. Humility and self-distrust should be the spirit in which we pursue any Bible truth.

.

Much prayer and much comparing  scripture with scripture, and spiritual things with spiritual, should be the vehicle we use to discover those truths.

REVELATION IS HOW GOD DEALS WITH MY HEART

.

While it’s true, that world history only confirms the prophecies of Scripture, there is a far greater truth which God wishes for us to see. And if a Bible student interprets Scripture, using the Bible only, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Cano_-_San_Juan.jpgthe student may discover an interpretation of these prophecies which speaks to the condition of the human heart and its relation to the heart of God…

.

Listen to Paul’s words… “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” 2nd Timothy 3:16, 17.

.

For instance, the Apostle John did not need history books or newspapers, in order for him to become Christ-like. He only needed to keep his eyes fixed on Christ. This was the secret ingredient to John’s victory over this world oThe True Accusing Finger www.signsofheaven.org share-alike license- you may usef sin.

.

And likewise, if the Bible student keeps his eyes on the Bible and how it reveals Christ and His dealings with my own sinful heart, then that student can, like John, begin to grow into the likeness of Christ.

.

And once the Bible student thoroughly understands how these prophecies apply to his or her own heart, then that student can easily look out into the world, and understand just how the Book of Revelation applies to history and current events.

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Revelation 13:15

This article is a companion article which explains how television fulfills a prophecy from Revelation 14… “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” Rev. 13:16.

.

For the first time in history there exists an image which both speaks and has the capability to control the minds of humanity the way which Satan desires. Could this be the fulfillment of Revelation Chapter 13, which says… “the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”

A HEAVENLY HOBBY

.

In this busy work-a-day world, there are many very interesting things which can occupy one’s time and energy: hobbies, and careers, and entertainments and worries, and habits, to name just a few.

.

But as the child of God devotes his or her life to God, there should be a jealous guarding of one’s own heart… “Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23.

.

The Christian wants nothing to get in the way of running that Christian Race.

“AND WHEN YE SEE THESE THINGS…

.

LOOK UP, LIFT UP YOUR HEAD”

.

But having said this, there is one hobby which every ‘Noble Berean’ may take up, which only compliments the pursuit of the heavenly Prize.

.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Astronomy_Amateur_3_V2.jpg

Yes, Signs Of Heaven becomes a wonderfully rewarding hobby which, unlike many less meaningful hobbies, pays off with rich, heavenly rewards. Everlasting rewards!

.

And unlike these people in this photo with equipment, all you need is fairly good vision, and a dark, starry night.

.

And once a person really gets to know these heavenly messengers, it will become very apparent that the message connected with these signs is truly a message to be heeded.

.

Thus will the Christian be able to share this message with others. And there are perhaps many nuances and hidden biblical truths to these signs which have yet to be discovered.

FIRST FIND ORION & 7 STARS

.

The very first step in finding these many constellations, should be to find the two main constellations: Orion, and the 7 Stars (aka, The Big Dipper).

.

These two constellations represent Christ (Orion), and His Church (7 Stars).

.

And just as these are the easiest constellations to find, so too, the first place to begin studying the Bible is the Four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, John).

.

These four books present Christ and His Church, when He walked the earth, just as Orion and the 7 Stars represent Christ and His Church, as seen up in the heavens.

.

Then, once you are comfortable finding these two constellations, you can begin to locate the next closest constellations, and so on.

ANOTHER HEAVENLY HOBBY: PRAYER-WALKS

.

Now if you’re fortunate enough to be able to go on nightly walks, and you live in an area where you can safely view the stars, here is another Heavenly Hobby which Signs Of Heaven endorses…

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Starry_Night_at_La_Silla.jpg.

Why not combine star-watching with prayer, as you walk? What a great way to draw closer to God!

.

It cannot be over-stressed, just how wonderful it is to walk under the dark canopy of Heaven, while lifting up one’s heart to our Heavenly Father! There is a closeness to God that cannot be described with words!

.

(And even if you cannot safely do this, you can always do such prayer-walks in the daytime, in a safe place, such as a mall, which is every bit as effective, prayer-wise.

.

And for those who are in confinement, one can view these starry signs on the Internet, or simply listen to Scripture on audio.

.

Either way, all such may enjoy God’s richest blessings at this very time in which God is pouring out all Heaven’s treasures upon anyone willing to forsake all, and follow Jesus!)

THRICE-DAILY PRAYERS

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Marines_at_Prayer_by_Alex_Raymond.jpg.

Now of course, the Bible commands us to, “pray without ceasing“. The Christian is to constantly talk with our Heavenly Father throughout the day.

.

But the Bible also holds up the godly life of Daniel, who, when captive in Babylon, still set aside three times daily, in which he knelt for special prayer.

.

And furthermore the Bible also says… “Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice.” Psalm 55:17.

.

Even those who are bed-fast or in a prison cell can begin to imitate Daniel in this way. And if one is fortunate to be able to walk, then this thrice-daily prayer regimen can be combined with three walks daily and even nightly.
