Israel in the Wilderness

“Israel in the Wilderness” is the 8th segment in the video series Revelation Simplied. It explains how Revelation Chapter 12 is one of three inset (information) chapters that show up in the narrative after Trumpet 7. These inset chapters give important information that amplifies and clarifies other events.

Revelation Simplified 1-7 review

Throughout Revelation Simplified we have been discussing the Revelation Timeline. We saw that the 7 seals of Revelation represented the releasing of the 4 horses which plays out over 2,000 years. And that the 7 trumpets (or the 7 shofars) represent the 7-year Tribulation, the last 3.5 years being known as the Time of Jacob’s Trouble. At the end of this 7-year Tribulation, (at the end of the Time of Jacob’s Trouble) Babylon then begins to fall and the Kingdom is handed over to the saints.

After this sequence come the insert chapters of Hitgalut (Revelation) 12, 13, and 14. In this segment, we are going to talk about the insert chapter of Hitgalut (Revelation) 12 which describes Israel in the wilderness.

Hitgalut (Revelation) 12:1-2

A lot of people who want to relate Hitgalut (Revelation) 12 verse 2 into with a rapture; or a place of safety. They do things with Basra, Petra and Jordan. We will explain that these theories are not necessary because this prophecy was fulfilled in the first century. We will also explain the dual prophetic meaning of the child described in verses 4 and 5 and how this represents both Yeshua and Israel.

Hitgalut (Revelation) 12:1-2 
1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman [Miriam, also Israel] clothed with the sun [Yeshua’s Spirit], with the moon [Torah] under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars [twelve tribes].
2 Then being with child [Yeshua] she [Miriam/Israel] cried out in labor and in pain to give birth [first century].

The Great Dragon Rome

Hitgalut (Revelation) 12:3
3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon [Satan/Rome] having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads.

The Man Child Yeshua and Israel

Hitgalut (Revelation) 12:4-5 
4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth [Satan’s rebellion]. And the dragon [Rome] stood before the woman who was ready to give birth [Miriam], to devour her Child [Yeshua] as soon as it was born. 
5  She bore a male Child [Yeshua, also Israel] who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to Elohim and His throne [first century]. 

Israel in the Wilderness

We will see that verse 6 represents the 1,260 days that the Catholic church oppressed what would later become the Protestant peoples in Protestant Northwestern Europe. And that this does not require a rapture theory or a place of safety theory. Just simply an understanding of the history. And we also cover this more thouroughly in the Nazarene Israel study.

6  Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by Elohim, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty [1,260] days. 
[Protestant NW Europe]
[1,260 days of Daniel 7:25]

Satan’s rebellion and Roman Occupation

We will discuss the first century event of verses 7-9 and how this relates to the first century Roman occupation.

Hitgalut (Rev) 12:7-9 
7 And war broke out in heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, 
8  but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. 
9  So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. 

Hitgalut (Revelation) 12:10-12
10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our Elohim, and the power of His Messiah have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our Elohim day and night, has been cast down. 
11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 
12  Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” 

Persecution of Israel

Then Israel’s escape from that persecution when she fled into the wilderness.

Hitgalut (Revelation) 12:13 
13 Now when the dragon [Rome] saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman [Israel] who gave birth to the male Child. 
[Emperors Nero, Diocletian, etc.]

Hitgalut (Revelation) 12:14-15 
14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place [Northwest Europe], where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time [1,260], from the presence of the serpent [Rome]. 
15  So the serpent spewed water out of his mouth like a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. 

Hitgalut (Revelations) 16-17
16  But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the flood which the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 
17  And the dragon was enraged with the woman, and he went to make war with the rest of her offspring, who keep the commandments of Elohim and have the testimony of Yeshua Messiah.
