Conservative Scholars Agree: The Male Child Is The Church

Image
If 5 theologians was good, surely 15 is better! I am so grateful that Unsealed.org expanded upon our article yesterday and assembled and even more impressive list.  Gary found quotes from 15 theologians who clearly taught that the Child of Revelation 12:5 is the Church! These are some of the greatest minds of the faith, many who are credited with reviving the Pre-Trib doctrine which so many of us following this sign believe to be true. This mountain of evidence is truly overwhelming and an absolute must read by anyone who is for or against this sign.

From this point forward, any pastor or teacher debunking this sign must realize that they are not arguing with a bunch of "internet nobodies", but instead some of the greatest minds in the Christian church from the past 300 years or more....

Here is an excerpt:
A number of prophecy teachers including Joel Richardson and Jack Hibbs have dismissed the upcoming Revelation 12 Sign by suggesting it isn't unique and that conse…

5 Theologians on the Child of Revelation 12

Image
Last weekend one of my favorite pastors implied that "Every conservative theologian that's worth reading..." interprets Revelation 12 in a way contrary to how those of us following the sign do. Among other things this pastor was quite adamant that Revelation 12 is simply talking about the birth and ascension of Jesus Christ, and has nothing to do with the rapture of the Church.  In his words this view is "longtime held, conservative, orthodox eschatology."

Well, I would like to address that statement...

Wait....who cares what I have to say?  How about we let some longtime, conservative, orthodox, eschatology teachers address the subject!  And when I say longtime, well, you'll see what I mean...

1. John Nelson Darby (1855) "If the mighty man, the mystic man, the man-child of Revelation xii. is to act [in judging the world with a rod of iron], He must first be complete (of course He is so, essentially so, in Himself, but as Head over all things to the Chu…

A Painting Analogy Regarding the Rev12 Sign...

Image
I posted the following directly on our Facebook Page yesterday. Many of you have probably seen it already, but I am putting it up here for all those who don't use that platform. Thank you to everyone who left such wonderful comments below that post... it warmed my heart greatly but I can take no credit.... That was all Him. : )


A few people have asked why our brothers and sisters get upset when some prophecy professionals disparage this sign without even taking the time to look at it closely... Here is an analogy that may help you understand.

Imagine that your one true love is an amazing artist. Your Love paints you a beautiful picture with layer upon layer of meaning. It is the most beautiful painting you have ever seen and it moves you to tears just thinking about the effort and planning and care that was put into creating this painting for you. Then just as you seem to fall deeper and deeper in love with The One who painted this picture, a very prestigious group of art criti…

Isaiah 66, The Rapture, and Translator Bias

Image
Isaiah 66:7-8 seems to have been connected to the rebirth of Israel ever since at least 1948. It surely was an amazing event... a miraculous fulfillment and a "super sign" as to the lateness of the hour. But was 1948 a fulfillment of Isaiah 66:8 as most scholars seem to suggest, or is it actually connected to the Revelation 12 Sign?

It took me a while to come around on this... but now I believe that it is actually more accurately connected to the Revelation 12 Sign and the rapture of the church. I will show you below why I think this. Basically you will see that the wording of the Isaiah passage was changed in the modern translations to "help us out".

What you will see is a prime example of Translator Bias. It seems that what was assumed by the translators of most modern Bibles is that Isaiah 66:8 was speaking of Israel in 1948, therefor they worded the text in a way to make that connection clear... but in doing so I think you will see that they drifted away…

The Final Prayer Of The Church | Unsealed

Image
Our Father in Heaven,  We believe that in accord with your Word the hour has come for Your children to be received into glory and it is plainly evident to those with eyes to see and ears to hear.  We ask that You would now glorify us that we may glorify You.  We have greatly desired to be with Your Son, our Lord, and now we will see Him face to face.  We have accepted Your Son and His message and have placed our faith in Him for the forgiveness of our sins.  We know that He rose again from the dead and ascended to Your right hand.  As surely as You live, we know He lives and reigns with You.  And as surely as He rose He will come again.  We have brought You glory on earth and have obeyed the commandment of Your Son to share the Gospel of grace with every nation.

  Your Holy Spirit within us has convicted the whole world of sin.  The world You love has rejected Your offer of forgiveness, but all of Your sheep have heeded the message and await the fulfillment of the promise You made to …

2 Video Responses To Jan Markell and Co.

Image
I know many of you are following the discussion going on after Jan Markell, Jack Hibbs and Billy Crone once again tried to pop the supposed Rev12 Sign bubble...  They failed miserably and there has been a huge outpouring of amazingly insightful comments on those two posts which you need to catch up on.... But the purpose of this post is to also make you aware of two videos by a couple of very dear watchmen discussing this topic.  These men will greatly encourage you and increase your resolve that these signs are not to be dismissed.  Listen to these men of God... you are not alone in your angst, but take heart, this too is a part of God's magnificent plan!

Scottie Clarke's UPDATED Hear the Watchmen Presentation!

Image
As most of you know, Scott Clarke was invited to present at the "Hear the Watchmen" Conference last weekend. That conference included many big names and prominent teachers and is very well attended by people from across the country.  I was very happy to hear that by all accounts Scott's talk was very well received. In fact, a pastor from my church was even at the conference and said his presentation was excellent!

As some of you know a day or two ago a video of Scott's presentation was released on YouTube. That video was great to see, but it contained many advertisements and the graphics didn't always line up with what Scott was discussing. But true to form, Scott has created his own video, in HD with updated graphics and no advertising!

If you haven't seen this yet you must take the time to check it out. Lots of amazing information is presented here and much of it may be new to you. This is the first time Scottie has given a public speaking style of pre…

In the Beginning God Gave a Glimpse of the End | Unsealed

Image
This study by Jeff is quite amazing.  He found that the stories in the Genesis parallel the pattern of events we know will take place as written in the Revelation.  Just look at the following pattern:

Genesis:
1. Enoch taken
2. Angels fall/Giants rise
3. Noah and his tribe sealed
4. Global judgment begins (water)
5. Nimrod rises to power
6. Babylon's fall/Yahweh comes down
7. Abrahamic covenant pledged

Revelation:
1. Church/male-child taken
2. Angels fall/Giants return
3. 144,000 sealed
4. Global judgment begins (fire)
5. Beast rises to power
6. Babylon's fall/Yahweh comes down
7. Abrahamic covenant fulfilled

I find it amazing that all of these patterns are coming to light in these last days.  Amazing patterns hidden in the Bible for centuries which we are just now recognizing.  Sure, many people have seen certain parallels in each of these stories with the end, but I have never seen it presented in such a comprehensive way.   Looking at it as a whole is quite a…

Personal Thoughts On Jan Markell's Program Yesterday

Image
I was responding to a comment by Lance in the previous post and it started getting way too long... so this post will be my general thoughts regarding WHY I think Jan Markell and Pastors Crone and now Hibbs are against this sign.  Many of my other thoughts are in the comments section of that previous post.
My view of why these prophecy leaders are against the Rev 12 Sign... In their minds they are trying to PROTECT people and the reputation of Bible prophecy.  If I had to guess, the first moment they heard about this sign they made up their mind that it was bogus (likely without ever really looking at it).  They failed the Proverbs 18:13 test. As soon as they saw a date...any date... they made up their mind then and there that there was no way this "sign" had merit.

Once it became such a huge thing Jan scrambled to put together a segment that would put the fire out.  Surely she figured she must protect us from this "date setting" fad. I had been in communication wi…

Jan Markell and Jack Hibbs Address Revelation 12

Image
I am big fans of Jan Markell and Jack Hibbs... both of them have drawn me closer to the Lord through their ministries and I was blessed to meet each of them and have extended conversations with both. So I was saddened to hear that this morning they put out a show together (with Billy Crone) indicating that that they are still not on board with the Rev12 Sign. This video has very few views so far, but keep in mind Jan's show is on 700 stations across the country...so this message will definitely get out there. Please listen to what they say and compare it with all that we have learned. Do they add any new arguments, or is it the same old thing? Are they able to convince you that we are off... or does this increase your resolve all the more?

FYI: I have not listened to this fully yet and will likely add more thoughts when I am able to complete it later today.

UPDATE AFTER LISTENING TO FIRST HALF:
12:30 - They play clip a from Steve Ciccolanti partially explaining Rev 12
14:00 …

No Man Knoweth the Day or the Hour?

Image
As you probably know, it seems that we are in the season of the Lords return...that seems pretty clear to nearly everyone who is watching.  But what has been especially encouraging to me is that as these signs narrow in on a window of time that seems especially promising, we have been given more and more teaching showing us that we can know information about the timing of this event.... BIBLICAL TEACHING which strongly supports the idea that we will see the day approaching IF we are watching! How exciting is that?!!

Just today Robert Breaker and Daniel Matson added to the chorus of teaching showing us how the Bible clearly says we can know.  In the video below Robert Breaker gives a FANTASTIC overview and provides many Scriptural connections on this timely and controversial subject.  I LOVED this video and have a hunch that once you watch the first 5 minutes you will surely want to watch the whole thing!


If this wasn't enough, Daniel Matson woke up this morning with this topic on …

Exciting 11 Minute Clip Of Pastor Biltz!

Image
In the 11 minute clip below which was uploaded just yesterday, Pastor Mark Blitz ties together an amazing array of scriptures with the active signs pointing to the extreme lateness of the hour. It's amazing to watch and you can feel the urgency and excitement in his voice!

I know much speculation has gone into the purpose of the Blood Moons, and surely we have seen how they point to the Revelation 12 Sign in multiple different ways (see here and here). But after watching the video below, and seeing his passion and clarity of message... perhaps part of the purpose of that phenomena was to raise up Pastor Biltz to a place of prominence FOR A TIME SUCH AS THIS!!

Two Outstanding Articles by Unsealed

Image
The Unsealed guys have been working overtime lately.  We are now less than a month away from the Revelation 12 Sign and now is no time to let off the throttle. With great urgency and drive they published two more fantastic articles yesterday.  You definitely need to check them both out if you haven't already.... both topics always seem to come up when discussing this sign and you would do well to absorb all of the wisdom shared in the links below so that it is at your disposal when needed.
Here are excepts and links for both:
1. No One Knows The Day Or Hour Mockers inside and outside the Church are using just a handful of Scriptures at the expense of all others.  They are choosing to be willfully ignorant.  They are also leveling two false accusations, which tells me that their reasoning is not coming from the Holy Spirit, but from a much darker place.Link for Article 1

David Wilkerson Believed The Child Was The Church!

Image
David Wilkerson was a very famous preacher out of New York City who died in 2011. He took the end times very seriously and has many extremely powerful sermons and prophetic statements that can be accessed online. Our brother Randy recently posted a video of Pastor Wilkerson which has a very interesting portion in it related to the Revelation 12 Sign. About 5 minutes into the video below he starts discussing Revelation 12, and at about 5:28 he clearly says that the child in Revelation 12:5 IS THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST!

So we can now add David Wilkerson to the list of prominent pastors who had this interpretation. Among others that list that includes John Nelson Darby, Harry Ironside, William Kelly, William Blackstone, and even Chuck Missler to some extent.

This sermon is dedicated to the ill's of television (another timely subject to be sure) but at about 5 minutes in you can hear Pastor Wilkerson share his thoughts on Revelation 12. Thanks again Randy for sharing this!

Prophecy In The News - A Revealing Rev 12 Discussion

Image
This video is AMAZING!!!  Douglas Woodward was invited onto the very popular Prophecy In The News program and was allowed to discuss the Revelation 12 Sign in depth!!  Check this video out right away! Doug also spends time discussing our glorification which will take place around the time of the rapture... hopefully something we will experience firsthand very soon!  This is a very informative and balanced discussion which should open plenty of eyes and help prepare us for what could be soon to come!

We posted an article by this gentleman previously, if you missed it you can see it that here.

Revelation 12 "Berean Study" Video Series

Image
I recently discovered a video series on a new Revelation 12 YouTube Channel that is quite well done and packed with information.  I actually watched Part 3 of the series first, which I highly recommend, then had to go back and watch the other two parts because it was so well done!

If you have the time I encourage you to watch all of them... but at a bare minimum watch Part 3 which has to do with the network of signs in play at Christ's first coming.  I found it VERY informative and a great support for this recent article of mine:  Can We Really Know When Jesus Is Coming?

Lastly, I can't believe this channel has such few views... Please share his work and leave this hardworking brother an encouraging note for all he has done! He has put out 9 videos in the past month and  I hope he continues making more as they are quite good!  He has a pretty cool accent too!

Rev12 Documentary Coming to DirecTV on September 14th

Image
UPDATE:  Just watched it and its actually decent.  See my thoughts here...
https://rev12daily.blogspot.com/2017/09/review-of-sign-on-directv-its-decent.html


UPDATE 9-13-17: I am recommending that we all hold off recommending the DirecTV documentary titled 'The Sign' (set to air for the 1st time tomorrow evening on Sept 14th) until it can be reviewed. It is extremely unwise to use a show nobody has seen as a witnessing tool. for such an important message. You must realized that if the show happens to be good ( I hope it is) you can point your friends to one of the 10 additional showings over the course of the weekend But until you or someone you trust has actually seen it, please do everyone a favor and do not risk recommending it to others until we can verify that the message is fair and worthwhile.  For more info see here:https://rev12daily.blogspot.com/2017/09/a-strong-word-of-caution-about-sign.html

Please know this... if the show is good I will update this message and do a…

Who Is The Male Child In Revelation 12? | Unsealed

Image
When looking to identify the Male Child from Revelation 12:5 a number of factors must be accounted for. Some of these factors could potentially fit multiple characters, others not so much.  In the following post Gary lays out 8 key criteria which must be met to fit the description in the text. He dives into each of these points and shares why he feels that the Body of Christ is the best fit for all eight.  This article is an essential read for anyone studying this sign seriously.

FYI: This is not some new idea. either...  This view was held by some of the most brilliant minds in church history.  For more on that click here.

Excerpt from the Unsealed Article: Who is the male child of Revelation 12?  This question becomes increasingly pertinent as we near the day on which the Revelation 12 Sign may be fulfilled.  Historically the predominant assumption was that the male child of Revelation 12:5 was Christ, but this interpretation appears to have some significant faults.  In retrospect…

Revelation 12 Sign Watercolor Paintings!

Image
This Great Sign has inspired so many of us to do things we never thought we would do....
I started a website essentially devoted to a single chapter from the Book of Revelation.Our sister Mechelle wrote a poem about a series of astronomical conjunctions.Adam started making YouTube videos.Alan spent weeks compiling a 34 page pdf document.Daniel wrote a Gospel Booklet and more in his second language.Gary was interviewed for a segment on CBN Television.And now, our sister Kate has done Watercolor Paintings about the Revelation 12 Sign!!! This list could go on and on... How many of us thought we would be so blown away by a planetary alignment 5 or 10 years ago?  How many of us thought we'd be discussing the intricate details of Leo and Virgo to our friends and family?  How many of us were even awake to the lateness of the hour back then?  But now, we are here in this moment and God is using so many of us to help bring glory to Him and spread His message.  The paintings below by Kate c…

The Latest Eclipse Links and News

Image
As I type I am somewhere in the path of totality... awake since 4 am.  We are at a hotel and I am contemplating if it would be a good idea to claim some chairs down by the pool to ensure we have a reasonably comfortable place to view the event.  The weather in our location is less than ideal... chance of rain, chance of sun.  I am optimistic however... after all, why bring us down here if we can't see it, Lord?

It seems surreal that this much discussed and dissected event will be passing over our heads in a matter of hours. I checked my phone and saw a number of new links and info and figured a short post was in order for the rest of you who are watching this so intently and perhaps awake so early.

I shared this earlier in the week, but if you missed it you have got to check out the article by Unsealed titled: America: The Writing Is On The Wall. It's an excellent resource which points out many of the reasons this eclipse seems to be indicating that some dark days could be a…

Power of God Radio Interview

Image
Listen to our brother Ron explain the signs of the times, Revelation 12 and more in this podcast from yesterday.    I haven't been able to listen to the entire thing just yet, but from what I have heard so far it is absolutely EXCELLENT!

 Ron goes very in-depth on all the topics we cover on this site... So I am sure you will be very blessed by it.   From what I have listened to so far he is much more well spoken than I was in my talk a few weeks ago, so if you enjoyed that I am sure you will absolutely love this!   Please give it a listen and share your thoughts below.  Tomorrow is a busy day, but perhaps you could download the MP3 for your ride home from the eclipse (when you are sitting in traffic)!

Thanks to Gary from Unsealed for bringing this to my attention!

Must See Sermon! | Pastor Troy Brewer

Earlier this week we mentioned how Pastor Troy Brewer from Open Door Church in Burleson, Texas put an amazing video out on Facebook previewing his upcoming sermon.  The 18 minute video addressed the Rev 12 Sign with more boldness than any pastor any of us have seen to date.

Today Pastor Troy gave his message.  It covers a wide range of topics which include the Sign of Jonah, Eclipse, Revelation 12 Sign and more...  If only more pastors in American were preaching messages similar to this...

Can We Really Know When Jesus Is Coming?

Image
Can we know when Jesus is coming?
What does the Bible say? 

Now we have barely begun this post and I am sure many of you are jumping up and down on the inside screaming.... "Day nor Hour", we CAN'T know the Day or Hour!! (Matt 24:36)

To those of you I say this....just take a look at Rev 3:3 and the other verses below.  This whole subject may not be as cut and dry as you think it is.  We know the Bible cannot contradict itself, so if on the surface there seems to be something contradictory, well that is a clue to dig deeper...  So come now... let's do some digging!
Introduction Take a moment and visualize the triumphal entrance of Jesus into Jerusalem.  He was riding on a donkey...  A crowd was there to meet him...  They recognized that He was the prophesied King.  Now notice this... Luke 19:37 tells us the these believers were in place ready to greet him before He arrived. They were prepared as they saw him approach.  The had seen the signs (John 12:17-18) proving H…

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.
