Song from Intro

"You're Beautiful"
Phil Wickham
I see Your face in every sunrise
The colors of the morning are inside Your eyes
The world awakens in the light of the day
I look up to the sky and say
You're beautiful

I see Your power in the moonlit night
Where planets are in motion and galaxies are bright
We are amazed in the light of the stars
It's all proclaiming who You are
You're beautiful

I see You there hanging on a tree
You bled and then you died and then you rose again for me
Now You are sitting on Your heavenly throne
Soon we will be coming home
You're beautiful

When we arrive at eternity's shore
Where death is just a memory and tears are no more
We'll enter in as the wedding bells ring
Your bride will come together and we'll sing
You're beautiful

I see Your face, I see Your face
I see Your face, You're beautiful
You're beautiful
You're beautiful

1. Introduction

Give thanks, Prayer, mention visuals for listeners, song lyrics

Rev 12 Caps off a staggering list of Prophetic Signs
Coming Convergence: Israel / Wars / Day Counts / Christ Angle / Fig Tree Generation / Days of Noah / Days of Lot / Mark of Beast tech / Genetic Manipulation / etc. etc.

2. Lost Appreciation for the Stars

3. Biblical Foundation - its not astrology

Job 9:9-10
who made the Bear and Orion, the Pleiades and the chambers of the south;
who does great things beyond searching out, and marvelous things beyond number.

Job 38:31  
Can you bind the chains of the Pleiades or loose the cords of Orion?

Job 38:32-33
Can you lead forth the Mazzaroth in their season,
or can you guide the Bear with its children?
Do you know the ordinances of the heavens?
Can you establish their rule on the earth?

Psalm 19: 1-4 
The heavens declare the glory of God,
and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.
Day to day pours out speech,
and night to night reveals knowledge.
There is no speech, nor are there words,
whose voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out through all the earth,
and their words to the end of the world.

Genesis 1:14  And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years,

Luke 21:25a 
And there will be signs in sun and moon and stars, and on the earth distress of nations in perplexity because of the roaring of the sea and the waves,

4. Revelation 12 Sign Description

Sign is Accessible:  In the sky.  In the Bible.  Free Software.  Free Information.

Do not glorify the sign.  Glorify Jesus.

Revelation 12:1-6
And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it. She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days.

Woman: Mary/Israel 
Dragon: Herod/Satanic World System
Child: Jesus/His Body
Other Offspring: Tribulation Saints / Believing Jews (Rev 12:17)

 Sanctification Effect of the Rev 12 Sign / Evangelism and Apologetic Potential 

 Feast of Trumpets - The day no one knows / Last Trump  / 1 Cor 15:50-57 - Hosea 13:13-14 Link

The Church was conceived at Pentecost. The Church is born at the Rapture.
Conception is a entrance / beginning.  Birth is a exit / new environment.
Spiritual speaking, unbelievers are an unfertilized egg.

5. Woman in Labor Imagery

For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. But you are not in darkness, brothers, for that day to surprise you like a thief.
Romans 8:19-22
For the creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it, in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation has been groaning together in the pains of childbirth until now.
Isaiah 42:14
For a long time I have held my peace; I have kept still and restrained myself; now I will cry out like a woman in labor; I will gasp and pant.  I will lay waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their vegetation; I will turn the rivers into islands, and dry up the pools.

Isaiah 26:16-21
O Lord, in distress they sought you; they poured out a whispered prayer when your discipline was upon them. Like a pregnant woman who writhes and cries out in her pangs when she is near to giving birth, so were we because of you, O Lord; we were pregnant, we writhed, but we have given birth to wind. We have accomplished no deliverance in the earth, and the inhabitants of the world have not fallen. Your dead shall live; their bodies shall rise. You who dwell in the dust, awake and sing for joy! For your dew is a dew of light, and the earth will give birth to the dead. Come, my people, enter your chambers, and shut your doors behind you; hide yourselves for a little while until the fury has passed by. For behold, the Lord is coming out from his place to punish the inhabitants of the earth for their iniquity, and the earth will disclose the blood shed on it, and will no more cover its slain.

Isaiah 13:6-8
Wail, for the day of the Lord is near; as destruction from the Almighty it will come! Therefore all hands will be feeble, and every human heart will melt. They will be dismayed: pangs and agony will seize them; they will be in anguish like a woman in labor. They will look aghast at one another; their faces will be aflame.

Micah 4:9-10
Now why do you cry aloud? Is there no king in you? Has your counselor perished, that pain seized you like a woman in labor? Writhe and groan, O daughter of Zion, like a woman in labor, for now you shall go out from the city and dwell in the open country; you shall go to Babylon. There you shall be rescued; there the Lord will redeem you from the hand of your enemies.
Therefore he shall give them up until the time when she who is in labor has given birth; then the rest of his brothers shall return to the people of Israel.

7. How I Share the Sign / Responses

 This is the handout I will often hand to people (or email) after sharing the sign with them.

Responses to Common Questions

1. Day nor Hour?

2. Astrology?

3. Rev 12 is about Jesus's Birth / Ascension?

Rev 2:26-29
The one who conquers and who keeps my works until the end, to him I will give authority over the nations, and he will rule them with a rod of iron, as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, even as I myself have received authority from my Father. And I will give him the morning star. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.  

Rapture is a sudden a hawk.

4. Rev 12 a Mid Trib Chapter?


5. Crown / Lack of Uniqueness?

6. Baby Bumps Out of Womb?

7. What's the Dragon?

Rev 12:9 identifies.  But is there an astronomical symbol?
Here is one option...
Link to Virgo "Cover-Up" Article

Other topics if there is time:   
  • Nature of a Sign (at event, or before event?) 
  • Sanctification Effect of Sign
  • Rapture/ Harvest/ Transformation
  • Big Name Pastors Ignoring it 
  • My Journey

This sign will humble us one way or another.

With this info we should be on fire like never before. 
Excited, prayerful, hopeful, giving, sanctified, ON FIRE.
The sign is in approx. 40 days... a lot could happen between now and then.  I believe the rapture could happen before this date, on the date, or after the date.  But without a doubt the Rev 12 Sign will be in the sky on 9-23-17 and that should grab the attention of every person on the planet and send them face first to the foot of the Cross.

  1. Listening to you Brad...this is incredible. Thank you for all the hard work in preparation you’ve put into this!

    1. Hi Brad .... Appreciate the watchmen in JESUS .... I believe Isaiah 8 in another type/ shadow .... The scroll being accessable to all, ( written with the pen of a man ... On a metal scroll ) Also the virgin or prophetess births ' hasten to the rapture ' a shout that is used as the victor claims the prize.... The WORD is alive and the sons of Issachar are on the move🌿

  2. Such a great compilation! Thank you Brad.

    1. Thanks... there was a lot of ground to cover.... or should I say sky? : )

  3. Wow nice to hear your voice Brad! Good job!

  4. I am holding back tears! Thank you Brad!

  5. I'm listening Brad and I'm hearing Christ speak to His bride ... get ready brothers and sisters ... the bridegroom in coming! I'm sharing something about the 5993 sign. Spoiler alert ... the Revelation 12 sign that appears in the Heavens on September 21-23, 2017 declares that Israel will have a "Spiritual Birth” at the mid-way point of the Tribulation period on March 28, 2021 and the Church will have a “Resurrection Birth” immediately prior to the beginning of the Tribulation period on September 21, 2017.

  6. Wow Brad! Thank you so much for taking the time to share this incredibly important sign! You did a great job!

    1. I appreciate those kind words Patricia. Thanks!

  7. Nice pacing and coverage. Solid all the way through, brother.

    1. It's pretty sad when you still have 40 minutes remaining and in your head your like, there is no way I can get to everything! There is just so much to share. Oh well... that why we have this site I suppose!

  8. Thanks everyone!!! I wish I had more time!!! : ) Thanks for the prayers! I surely felt them. Continue to pray for all those who will listen to the show via the podcast in the coming days / weeks.

    Thanks again for all of the love! I love you all!

    Ps. The couple of gaps were from me drinking water! ; )

  9. That was an amazing show, Brad. You brought the facts in such a loving way without getting all excitable like I do. You’re reaching people!

    1. Thanks Scott. Hope I did justice during the birth / conception explanation. : )

  10. Ha! My song is the closing bumper music! Cool!

  11. Great job Brad! You didn't sound nervous at all. I know I would have. LOL.

    1. Appreciate that James. I felt like it took a bit to get rolling, but after that it went pretty good. Certainly if anything good is in this, it wasn't from my power.

  12. All Glory, Honor and Praise to our King and Savior and His Spirit, which clearly indwelt your time on this program, Brad, very nicely done. Perfect closing Bumper too, Scottie, nice. Maranatha!

    1. That's right Jim! All glory to HIM!!!! It's His message, I was just trying not to screw it up!

  13. LtTWT 😉

    Brad, you did a fabulous job! I can't think of anything you left out. I especially appreciated the 'how to share with others' portion. I live in IL about 40 miles north of the totality band of the eclipse, and I've been considering going to a viewing location to have conversations just like you outlined.

    Thank you so much for all your hard work with this blog and yesterday's interview. What a blessing you are to those of us who believe this sign is the fulfillment of the Great Sign of Revelation 12!

    1. Hahaha! Thanks for Listening to The Whole Thing! Maybe we should see if Ron Matsen will listen! : ) Great idea about the eclipse and witnessing with others... it will be an unbelievable sight to see... and it would be cool to see the Rev 12 Sign pop out in the middle of the day!

  14. Great job Brad, TY! Your voice is so sweet and comforting similar to Br. Adams on YouTube :) Praise The LORD for all He still does even in the very last days (and minutes)... May He still bless your ministry and lift up the body of Christ! Strenghten the things which remain that are ready to die (Revelation 3:2)...

    Checking out Phil Wickhams music in YouTube, I found another song that exactly describes how I feel on a rainy day today when NO one around will anymore listen to the good news and me and my husband are all alone at our place eagerly waiting for His return and nothing more else: wanna share with you all, bless you Jesus all you and yours! MARANATHA and enjoy! :-)


    1. Thanks for sharing Annabel. I had never heard that song before... Amen! Appreciate your kind thoughts and continued support on this site! See you soon!! ; )

  15. Humble, meek and so informative! I look forward to making this into a video!!

  16. Brad,

    Awesome job! That was a ton of info!

    I tried to listen to the whole thing (I listened to your whole segment), but the host lost me during the first half. I couldn't listen the pre-wrath stuff. It sounded very works oriented to me. Anyway, we'll done!

    1. I can understand that. Certainly glad you stuck around for my portion.

    2. I was surprised by how much you covered. I thought you did a great job of giving just enough of multiple areas to pique someone's interest. It looks like you spent some serious time getting all that together. Again, all I can say is well done!

    3. Thanks Lance. Yes, it was quite the busy couple of days.... a LABOR of love though... if you get what I'm saying!

    4. Thank you Brad, interview is a Blessing! Excellent, complete with Scripture and visuals, explained clearly so all can understand. Thank you to Tribulation Now and John Baptist too. ~Tryphosa

      The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave Him to show His servants—things which must shortly take place. And He sent and signified it by His angel to His servant John, who bore witness to the word of God, and to the testimony of Jesus Christ, to all things that he saw. Revelation 1:1-2

  17. So this host is a pre-wrath-er who thinks the woman in Rev 12 changes personas throughout the chapter. I haven't even gotten to your interview yet because I'm so irritated at the host's lack of knowledge.

    1. Now I finished it. Very well done. I thought the host might interject, but I'm glad he let you talk.

    2. Is the radio host going to respond to this in a different airing?

    3. He shared his thoughts in the first part of the show. While we both take the sign seriously, there were some substantial differences from many of us interpret it. He was very encouraging afterwards though so that was great! So appreciate them inviting me on!

  18. Brad, check it out.

    This should settle any questions about Biblical Astronomy.

  19. Awesome job Brad!

    On a side note, can anyone list the verses the Jews will be reading on the 23rd?

    1. Truly inspired of the Holy Spirit. Thanks for being faithful to the call. You did 'us' proud! Back in April I asked the same question about the Torah Reading for the day. Here is in part what I came up with but I suspect there is more than meets the eye. Link:

  20. Awesome job Brad!

    On a side note, can anyone list the verses the Jews will be reading on the 23rd?

    1. Dear Brandon, check out beneiavram Torah portions and Ha'Azinu Torah portion 9/23/17 Shabat Shuva perhaps this gives us a hint? Blessings, brother! :)

    2. Err... I am not sure why my last post became a double post. Regardless, thank you for the references.

      Deuteronomy's 21st verse really jumps off the page for me.

  21. So appreciate all your hard word Brad. Thank you. The podcast was terrific - you were so well prepared and made a great case for our soon departure!

    1. Appreciate that Keith... Keep looking up!

  22. ...hard work...sorry!


    1. Thank you! And thanks to everyone who was praying for me!

  24. Thank you for your efforts in waking people up. Our Lord and Savior bless you and guide you.

    1. Thank you for that blessing, Crystal. May God Bless you as well!

Colossians 3:2-4

Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.

1 Peter 2:9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

Philippians 3:20-21

But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself.
