Where Is The Dragon? | Unsealed

I don't know how I let this awesome article slip through the cracks, but if you have been wondering about the dragon from Rev 12:3-4, then this is a must read. Gary gives an extensive overview of the Rev 12 Sign, and makes the case that we should not be alarmed if we don't see the other "dragon" sign in the sky prior to 9-23-17.

While an astronomical appearance would be a great confirmation, Gary lays out a logical scenario as to why we shouldn't necessary expect it. I was extremely blessed by this article and also Adam's video which he made about it.  Be sure to read it or watch the video... perhaps even both because it is such excellent information! Well done guys!!

Here is an excerpt:
Revelation 12:2 describes the woman undergoing labor pains, so Revelation 12:5 would therefore occur before her pain begins. Now before I go further, you might be thinking that I'm saying the rapture will definitely happen before 9/23, but I'm not saying that. The Great Sign occurs on 9/23, but it is a picture or symbol of real earthly events, namely Israel's entrance into the Tribulation. The labor pains are symbolic of the Time of Jacob's Trouble (Jer. 30:6-7, Matt. 24:8, 1 Thess. 5:3). So all I am categorically saying is that the male child will be born and raptured before the Tribulation begins. It is possible that the Great Sign doesn't directly coincide with the timing of certain things, but it could, so don't count out any possibilities. Don't put God in a box. The sign is the sign, but it could be a general "exit sign" pointing to the general nearness of the rapture.

So how then do we reconcile the fact that the dragon is already waiting to devour the child in Revelation 12:4? How can Revelation 12:5 and Isaiah 66:7 occur before Revelation 12:4?

Isaiah 26:17-21 gives us the answer. This passage is connected directly to and parallels Isaiah 66:7-8. Again we see a woman in labor about to give birth and a corporate birth from the earth.

  1. I've heard a number of different theories about the dragon. The good news is that the passage is clear about a few things:

    1) The dragon represents the devil (Rev 12:9)
    2) The dragon wants to kill us
    3) The dragon is not going to be able to kill us
    4) The dragon is going to be cast out of Heaven
    5) The dragon will be enraged and persecute Israel and begin the Tribulation

    No matter what the correct interpretation is, God is going to protect us and we're going to make it safely home. The devil's plans against us will fail! That is definitely a cause for rejoicing.

    There really isn't any question that the sign of the woman in Rev 12 will appear on 9/23. The interpretation of the sign of the dragon isn't going to change the fact that the rapture may be very near and we had best be living wisely, since we don't know how much time we have left! The dragon could be a literal sign, or some Planet X thing, or just the literal devil and not a sign at all, or something that only appears later. No matter which one is right, though, none of that changes what we're supposed to be doing right now.

    As someone once said, it is not the part of Scripture I don't understand that get to me. It's the ones that I do understand!

    Thanks for all you do in finding all this great information for us. It is really appreciated. Every day seems more exciting than the one before it!

  2. Great comment Jonathan. I think those with eye's are in harmony with your statement. Shalom Friend and "See You In September". And nice followthrough Brad, we appreciate you and Adams and all other Watchmen for you courage when so many are running for the safe place of a scoffers den. We will continue to pray for ALL to SEE and LOOK UP! Dan

  3. I agree with Gary in general that whatever the "dragon" and his seven heads (planets?) may be won't threat us but you may know I'm also a supporter of the Nibiru section of believers. Just check out this recent EXPITALY video. All this channels' video footage is well researched and most telling IMO. I cannot deny there are anomalies around earth in space that cannot be explained otherwise. Spiritually, this heavenly sign is fulfilled by Satan fighting with archangel Michael and cast out of heaven and thrown to earth like the mega-delusion of men left behind after the rapture described in 2 Thessalonians 2:10-12. Blessings! YSIC

    1. Let me just list off some support for the Nibiru hypothesis:

      1) the vatican has the LUCIFER telescope in arizona to detect dark objects in the infrared
      2) zecharia sitchin allegedly wrote his books on the anunnaki and the 12th planet with the blessing of the vatican to seed an explanation for the arrival of fallen angels to earth
      3) The Caltech data of Michael Brown that there is a planet 9
      4) Nemesis was theorized in the 80s by Dr. Robert Harrington at the Naval Observatory:
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DU5RtaD6rFM
      5) At the end of 2010: odyssey two, the novel and film, the planet jupiter is transformed via the alien monoliths into a second sun shining in the sky of earth, which is named Lucifer, marking the dawn of a new age for humanity
      6) The researcher Bob Fletcher has concluded that the government has been building DUMBs, deep underground military bunkers, for years, the most well known being at the denver international airport, for the arrival of planet X and the cataclysms from space to coincide with the judgements of revelation. This would mirror the text of Revelation 6:15

      15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains; 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb: 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand?

      The circumstantial evidence is viable enough to prop up a placeholder explanation, seeing as how we don't have access to the devices capable of confirming our suspicions. This is only fringe christianity because the denominations fall victim to conformity bias and give the government and NASA a total pass in being forthright with the intelligence they gather in regards to notifying the populations of revelation spurned celestial havoc.

      In my opinion, stars in revelation aren't just giant gas bodies billions of lightyears away, but will be meteor storms pelting the earth, much in the same manner we call them "shooting stars". And a roving black body planet bringing with it terrible volumes of debris is capable of doing just that.

    2. Hi,
      Based on my years of research into the Virgo Sign and the Red Dragon Google cover-up anomaly, I would concur on all that has been stated. I have also written about the mentioned circumstantial evidence of Planet X and have attempted to present it as an introduction to the topic. It is the sequel to the book on the Virgo Sign. This book on the 2nd Sun is entitled,’ Some Insights in Planet X, The Return of the Red Dragon’. You are all welcome to download the book for free as a PDF off the following OneDrive link:

  4. Hi again, I found this 2017 John Moore interview pretty interesting... So that's how long they already know about it?!!

  5. I got something to say:) Would it be that the sign of the dragon happens between September 9 and September 23? Mirror natural child birthing with the woman in labor. September 9 is the day many have found in stellarium in which Jupiter begins its decent to give birth. Using the word play, would it be the woman in labor is beginning labor on September 9 as if the water broke? I am a watchman trying to see the sign and investigate like all of you, so I don't know, but understanding pregnancy and labor to understand the "woman in labor" is akin to understanding the feasts of Israel and the Jewish wedding ceremony to understand God's Day timer and clock as Mark Biltz puts it. So, read Revelation 12 and you tell me when the Dragon appears and go to strongs and understand the word used in the Greek for "appears" and understand that the connotation in the greek is "to allow oneself to be seen" (that really jumped off the page for me personally).

    STRONGS NT 3700: ὀπτάνω

    ὀπτάνω (ὈΠΤΩ): to look at, behold; middle present participle ὀπτανόμενος; to allow oneself to be seen, to appear: τίνι, Acts 1:3. (1 Kings 8:8; Tobit 12:19; (Graecus Venetus, Exodus 34:24).)

    And when does the dragon stand? Just before the woman was "about to" or "was ready" to give delivery, "to bear or bring forth."

    In sum, seems to me that the Dragon will choose to be seen and God will allow it between September 9 through 23 (which also looks like 9-23) because labor will have commenced and the woman is about to give birth.


    Lastly, and less important for me is the literary understanding of Revelation 12. Many have talked about how Revelation 12 is a parenthesis in the book of Revelation and Scotty Clarke has talked about how everything can be understood as happening in layers. I agree. Another way to help understand this since we so often want to understand the narrative sequentially is thinking of Revelation 12 as "in medias res" or "into the middle of a narrative." Could it be as you read Revelation 12 that God tells a story like this "in medias res" in which the entire chapter is told in a way to skip right to the important part (the rapture of the Church) and then explain everything that happens around it? While also telling the important part in that all of Revelation 12 is essentially a view of the time of Jacob's trouble, when God Himself turns his attention to His chosen people, the Jew?

    Just trying to piece it all together. Let us watch and see.

  6. Great article, great site! I'm still a bit confused about the timeline. Is it safe to say that satan is cast out of heaven to make room (so to speak) for the newly raptured church? If so, the dialog seems to indicate that satan then goes to devour Israel for 3.5 years. I've always believed this last half of the tribulation was when Israel flees her land. Is Israel, who gives birth to the wind (ruach) the target of being devoured for the entire 7 years? Also, my entire church life I've heard and believed that there would be peace for 3.5 years but is this only because of what we all have read in 1 Thess. 5:3? Because if that's the only reason we think there is going to be "peace" in Israel for 3.5 years than maybe we need to reevaluate that. Blessings in Christ All!

  7. ***Copied from a Cornigo Brouwer Facebook comment:***

    Brad, another thing I noticed this morning:

    The beast in Revelation 13 has 7 heads, 10 horns and 10 crowns
    The beast in Revelation 12 has 7 heads, 10 horns and 7 crowns
    The beast in Daniel 7 has 7 heads and 10 horns, but 3 plucked out

    So, it appears (if the sign of the dragon is a collective sign and we broaden the perspective a bit, just like we did with the other sign) that the sign of the dragon that is depicted, is in the middle state as described above. It lost 3 crowns, and will probably lose 3 horns in the fight with Michael too, be smacked onto earth and become the son of perdition (the 11th horn) after the headwound is miraculously healed.

    A crown is a sign of authority (diademos) and about a third (3 out of 10) is taken from him (sound familiar?) already before we see him standing in front of the woman. So, before the rapture, some authority has already been taken from him in the heavens (wonder what caused that wink emoticon;) ) and Michael even takes it to the next level in verse 7, 8 and 9.

    Then, after he is smitten, he will miraculously heal from his headwound and turn into the beast of Revelation 13. We see the entire story I just described depicted in the first 3 verses of Revelation 13. 10 crowns, deadly wounded (minus 3), miraculously healed (the 11th horn). The sign of Revelation 12 is therefore very likely between verse 1 and 3 of Revelation 13 and therefore it's no wonder we can't see anything of this yet. But the tribulation saints will.

    The sign of Revelation 12:3 is perhaps even a snapshot of the state that the dragon finds himself in before Revelation 13:2, as he will transition into another state. Just as satan entered into Judas, he will probably enter into the son of perdition, the future antichrist, after he fell from heaven. That would explain the transition of dragonlike features of Revelation 13:1 into Greco-islam-like features that are described in the leopard, bear and lionlike features of Revelation 13:2.

    As stated multiple times by yourself and of course Scottie Clarke, Revelation 12 and 13 are both parenthetical, but they even describe the same events in a different manner. They also highlight other details because they want to focus on another aspect of the tribulation.

    My head is spinning as I try to dig into this, and perhaps yours is now too. The short version is this: the fact that we see the dragon in Revelation 12:3 in a state that follows after Revelation 13:1, tells me that it makes sense we can't see any of this coming yet, because 2 Thess. 2 tells us the antichrist will only be revealed after the big apostasia (departure or rapture). Satan is still in the third heaven (remember that Job tells us he has still access). Therefore it seems logical that we can't see any of this yet. Perhaps the prophetic narrative of this future event in the stars, but that's something I haven't been able to fully dig out yet. I guess the tribulation saints will understand wink emoticon;)

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.
