Transcript

  • 1. Israel and The Devil: The beginning of Jacob’s Troubles Revelation 12 – 13 The Great Tribulation
  • 2. Revelation 12:1-5 – The woman and the Dragon <ul><li>This woman is clearly defined by the symbols of her appearance (See Genesis 37:9-10). </li></ul><ul><li>I have found the following to be true about the people who interpret of this woman: </li></ul>www . davidmiles . net /
  • 3. <ul><li>It is a defining symbol that reveals whether the teacher interprets most of the rest of the Bible correctly. </li></ul>Revelation 12:1-5 – The woman and the Dragon
  • 4. Revelation 12:1-5 – The woman and the Dragon <ul><li>If they say this is anything other than Israel alone (without anything added to modify the identification, like “She is the church.” or “She could be Israel and the church.” or anything else), they are wrong about the rest of the Bible. </li></ul>
  • 5. Revelation 12:1-5 – The woman and the Dragon <ul><li>If they identify it as just Israel, they are probably correct interpreting most of the rest of the Bible. </li></ul>
  • 6. Considerations about the Woman that show she is Israel only <ul><li>1. Her dress shows that she is identified with Joseph’s dream which Jacob interpreted for us. (Genesis 37:9-10) </li></ul><ul><li>2. She is pregnant with a Man child who is born to rule the nations with the rod of iron. This is a designation for only Jesus. </li></ul>
  • 7. Considerations about the Woman that show she is Israel only <ul><li>3. The dragon who is identified with “ the old serpent calle d the Devil, and Satan, who deceives the whole world ” is trying to prevent Jesus’ birth and if He is born, to kill Him immediately after he is born. </li></ul>
  • 8. Considerations about the Woman that show she is Israel only <ul><li>Matthew 2:1-16 shows this actually happened. </li></ul><ul><li>5. The Man child is caught up to heaven to be with the Father on His throne. </li></ul><ul><li>6. The woman flees to the desert refuge that God prepared for her beforehand. </li></ul><ul><li>7. The Church did not give birth to Jesus; Israel did. Jesus “gave birth to” the Church . </li></ul>
  • 9. The place prepared for the woman: Ch. 12:6 <ul><li>Rev 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. </li></ul><ul><li>This will possibly be the 1/3 remnant spoken of by Zechariah 13:8-9 </li></ul>
  • 10. The place prepared for the woman: Ch. 12:6 <ul><li>The place prepared for her is thought by most students of prophecy to be the city of Petra (which God said would be uninhabited by the Edomites forever – Isaiah 34:10 and Ezekiel 25:13 and Joel 3:19). </li></ul><ul><li>She will be protected and cared for there for 1,260 days or 3 ½ prophetic years (at 360 days a year). </li></ul>
  • 11. Petra: Place in the Wilderness
  • 12. Petra: Place in the Wilerness The only entrance to Petra other than by air, a mile-long winding way through cliffs that allows only about 6 people abreast to pass through. ( called the Siq) The Treasury Building The Monastary, a tomb of one of the former rulers of Edom/Petra
  • 13. For 600 years it was thought that this city, in the middle of the desert of Jordan, was just a legendary like the Atlantis and Troy From Presentation: City of Petra, in Jordan one of the 7 New Wonders of the World
  • 14. This theater, in Greek-Roman style, had capacity for 4.000 spectators. From Presentation: City of Petra, in Jordan one of the 7 New Wonders of the World
  • 15. Petra: Place in the Wilderness <ul><li>As can be seen, the vacant rock city of Petra can comfortably accommodate a large number of people – maybe up to a million people. And it would be difficult for any army to drive them out. </li></ul>
  • 16. Satan expelled from heaven Ch. 12:7-9 <ul><li>Rev 12:7 And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, </li></ul>
  • 17. Satan expelled from heaven Ch. 12:7-9 <ul><li>Rev 12:8 And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven. </li></ul>
  • 18. Satan expelled from heaven Ch. 12:7-9 <ul><li>Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. </li></ul>www.cyberspaceministries.org
  • 19. Celebration in Heaven and A Solemn Warning to the People of Earth <ul><li>Rev 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. </li></ul>
  • 20. Celebration in Heaven and A Solemn Warning to the People of Earth <ul><li>Rev 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death. </li></ul>
  • 21. Celebration in Heaven and A Solemn Warning to the People of Earth <ul><li>Rev 12:12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time. </li></ul>
  • 22. The devil sets out to persecute the woman (Israel) <ul><li>Rev 12:13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman which brought forth the man child. </li></ul>
  • 23. The devil sets out to persecute the woman (Israel) <ul><li>Rev 12:14 And to the woman w as given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time (3 ½ Years) , from the face of the serpe nt. </li></ul>
  • 24. Dragon sends soldiers to des troy the Jews who have fled to Petra <ul><li>Rev 12:15 And the serpent [ordered an army of soldiers] as a flood [to go after] after the [Jews] , that he might cause [them] to be carried away by the flood. </li></ul>en . wikipedia . org /
  • 25. Dragon sends soldiers to des troy the Jews who have fled to Petra <ul><li>Rev 12:16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the [army] which the dragon [ordered to go after the Jews] . </li></ul>The ground opens up and swallows the army. www . hollywoodjesus . com / wolverton01 . htm
  • 26. <ul><li>The flood can be identified as armies (See Isaiah 59:19 and Jeremiah 46:8) </li></ul><ul><li>Then the persecution turns toward the remaining Jews, and any Gentiles, who have come to believe and trust in Jesus for Salvation. </li></ul>Dragon sends soldiers to des troy the Jews who have fled to Petra
  • 27. The harshest persecution ever to happen now begins <ul><li>This is going to be the fiercest type of persecution including beheading, starvation, of anybody who refuses to take the mark of the beast or to worship His image in the Temple. They will live in continual hiding and fleeing the Anti-Christ’s spies that will be everywhere. </li></ul>
  • 28. The Beast Revealed Ch. 13:1-10 <ul><li>From the description of this beast, we see he is linked in some way to the Babylonian (the lion’s head), the Greek (the leopard's body) and the Medo-Persian (the bear’s feet) Empires. </li></ul>www . davidmiles . net /
  • 29. The Beast Revealed Ch. 13:1-10 <ul><li>But the 7 heads and 10 crowns indicate he is a ruler (that is energized by the devil himself) who will rule with 10 kingdoms (or global regions) under him. The world will be divided into ten regions at this time. </li></ul>
  • 30. The Beast <ul><li>And one of his heads was mortally wounded as if he was killed and came back to life again – imitating the Death and Resurrection of Jesus. </li></ul>Revelation 13:3 www.cyberspaceministries.com
  • 31. The Beast <ul><li>He is THE Anti-Christ. Now people can know for certain who he is. And they will worship Him as “the Christ”. </li></ul>
  • 32. The Beast <ul><li>And he has names of blasphemy (mocking, defying, being insolent toward and contemptuous of) toward God written all over his heads. This is a current characteristic of the OFFICIAL 10 NATIONS that make up the European Union. </li></ul>
  • 33. The Beast <ul><li>They are anti-God, they support all sorts of filthy sinful activities. They are acting much like Romans 1:21-32 describes. They have no place for God in the promotion of their sinful lifestyles. </li></ul>
  • 34. The Power Given the Beast Ch. 13:5-7 <ul><li>Rev 13:4 And they worshiped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshiped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him? </li></ul>
  • 35. The Power Given the Beast Ch. 13:5-7 <ul><li>Rev 13:5 And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months. </li></ul><ul><li>Rev 13:6 And he opened his mouth in blasphemy against God, to blaspheme his name, and his tabernacle, and them that dwell in heaven. </li></ul>
  • 36. The Power Given the Beast Ch. 13:5-7 <ul><li>Rev 13:7 And it was given unto him to make war with the saints (those who came to faith in Jesus up to that time) , and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations. </li></ul><ul><li>Rev 13:8 And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. </li></ul>
  • 37. <ul><li>Thus, we have the beast, the Anti-Christ, becoming a world ruler over a global empire comprised of the European Union (the Revived Roman Empire) and the Middle East and possibly North and South America. It might even extend to Asia and Africa, too, as all the world will worship The Beast (The Anti-Christ) and his image. </li></ul>The Power Given the Beast Ch. 13:5-7
  • 38. The lamb that speaks like a dragon <ul><li>Rev 13:11 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the [land] ; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. </li></ul>
  • 39. The lamb that speaks like a dragon <ul><li>This “lamb” (which is symbolic of a man we call the False Prophet who will probably be an apostate Jew) will imitate being a believer in Jesus as Messiah and will convince the Jews and the rest of the world to accept The Beast as the “Messiah” </li></ul>
  • 40. <ul><li>Rev 13:12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was heale d. </li></ul><ul><li>He uses “miracles” and “signs and wonders” to deceive the people and win them over to worship the Anti-Christ </li></ul>The lamb that speaks like a dragon
  • 41. Some considerations about the Beast and False Prophet Ch. 13:11-15 <ul><li>1. They are called up by Satan. </li></ul><ul><li>2. They are part of the tools used for overcoming the Tribulation Saints and Messianic Jews. </li></ul><ul><li>3. They are able to perform “miracles” and show “lying signs” that imitate the Two Witnesses’ powers. </li></ul><ul><li>However, these signs are to deceive the people. </li></ul>
  • 42. Some considerations about the Beast and False Prophet Ch. 13:11-15 <ul><li>There is a lesson here for us on this side of the Rapture (See Matt. 7:22-23). Many “evangelists” are working and claiming to perform “miracles” in the Name of Jesus, but they are deceivers, plain and simple. </li></ul><ul><li>4. The purpose of the signs is to get people to worship the Beast (and ultimately worship the devil, which indwells the Beast). </li></ul>
  • 43. Some considerations about the Beast and False Prophet Ch. 13:11-15 <ul><li>5. The False Prophet is extremely clever. He makes an image of the Beast and animates it giving it the ability to do the same “miracles” as both the Beast and False Prophet do, and to kill anyone who does not worship the Beast. </li></ul>
  • 44. Some considerations about the Beast and False Prophet Ch. 13:11-15 <ul><li>6. And finally he will institute a system of coercion and control over the people. They will not be able to buy or sell if they do not receive the mark of The Beast or his number or his name. </li></ul><ul><li>7. That brings us to the much speculated and disputed number: 666. </li></ul>
