“And there appeared another wonder in heaven;

and behold a great red dragon,

having seven heads and ten horns,

and seven crowns upon his heads…

And the serpent cast out of his mouth

water as a flood

after the woman (The Elect Church),

that he might cause her

to be carried away of the flood.”

Revelation 12:3, 15

Dragons and dragon-slayers and damsels in distress: these are the things that storybooks are made of!

.

And down through the centuries, there have been no shortage of such intriguing tales.

.

And quite often, those storybooks ended with the words… “And they lived happily ever after”

THE VERY FIRST DRAGON-SLAYER STORY

.

Signs Of Heaven website reveals God’s own version of this same theme.

.

Only difference is, God wrote this dragon-slayer story in the heavens, in the day when He created the heavens and the Earth, as is written… “although the works were finished from the foundation of the world.” Hebrews 4:3.

.

And He wrote it long before Mankind had even been created, and He certainly wrote it long before Mankind had ever written such tales.

“And they lived happily ever after”

.

But unlike the make-believe children’s tales written by mortal men, this heavenly story is the only story ever told, which speaks the truth when it ends with… “And they lived happily ever after” (see Revelation 21:4).

.

Because, in reality, the words, “ever after” present a big, big problem. Because the fact is, every earthly story ultimately ends with the death of all its participants, both good and bad, alike.

.

But this heavenly story not only ends with “happily ever after”, but is a true story as well, and not just a fairy-tale!

THE REVELATION 12 DRAGON & WOMAN

.

As our opening signature passage from Revelation, Chapter 12 reveals, this Revelation 12 Dragon (depicted by God in the very heavens), spews water out of his mouth as a flood, to sweep away God’s people, represented by the woman fleeing into the wilderness, away from the Dragon’s wave of water.

.

Yes, not only does Signs Of Heaven show this Revelation 12 Dragon Constellation, but also shows this Revelation 12 Woman Constellation (also known as, Ursa Major).

THE FLOODWATERS OF THE DRAGON CONSTELLATION

.Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

And as remarkable as it may be, these constellations show this dragon spewing a wave of water out of his mouth directly into the pathway of the woman as she flees for her life.

.

This wave of water is primarily comprised of the Auriga Constellation with two additional stars from the Taurus constellation (Iota Tauri & Tau Tauri)

.

.

THE 7 LITTLE STARS

.

Now upon closer examination, it is discovered that there are 7 little stars being swept away by this wave of water .

.

Just who do these 7 stars represent?

.

Well, the number “7” speaks of God’s perfect peace, His “Rest unto your souls”. (see Matthew 11:28-30)

.

.

.

.

.

.

WHO DO THESE 7 STARS REPRESENT?

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Brooklyn_Museum_-_The_Foolish_Virgins_(Les_vierges_folles)_-_James_Tissot.jpg

So do these 7 stars represent God’s people being carried away by the floodwaters of the Dragon?

.

Listen to Isaiah…“And in that day seven women shall take hold of one man, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy name, to take away our reproach.” Isaiah 4:1

.

This above prophecy from Isaiah is actually concerning the churches and denominations in these last hours of time. Yes, women in the Bible are commonly figures representing churches. And the “one man” spoken of in the above verse represents Christ. And these 7 women want to be called by Christ’s name, and yet they do not want to wear the garments of Salvation. They only want to wear their own garments and eat their own bread instead of eating the “bread of life”.

“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine”

2nd Timothy 4:3, 4

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Davi_Sacer_na_Via_Show_2011.jpgAnd isn’t it true that in this day of apostasy, that local congregations and denominations love to invoke the name of Christ, while bringing in their own idols into their worship and lifestyles: false doctrines, sensual music, joking and jesting, the prosperity gospel, alluring women, theatrics, comedians, ethnicity, and a host of similar abominations.

.

And the churches and denominations today have become so apostate that God now refers to them as the ” Great Mystery Harlot, Babylon”.

“Satan…is transformed into an angel of light…his ministers also…as the ministers of righteousness”

2Co 11:14, 15 (condensed for brevity)

.

Oh yes, this mother of harlots has always been around. As long as God has had a people on earth for Himself, Satan has worked day-and-night to fill up the church ranks with his own false brethren, for the purpose of of co-mingling with God’s true sheep, infecting them with his poisonous wine of falsehood!

.

And so, this heavenly scenario of 7 stars being swept away in these floodwaters, is a portrait of how Satan has swept away all those apostate churches throughout the church era, but especially now in these last days.

.

.

.

.

.

“When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee” Isaiah 43:2

.

Well, the Good News is, that God’s true sheep will not be swept away in the floods of Satan’s http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Genesis19-17.jpgdeadly deceptions! 

.

But rather, God is now calling His sheep to, “come out of her (the apostate churches), My people, lest ye partake of her sins and receive of her plagues”. Revelation 18:4

.

And so if we have “and ear to hear”, then let us heed the call, to join the end-time exodus out of these apostate organizations and, flee to the mountain of God’s holiness in which He has supplied us with abundant heavenly bread and copious draughts of the life-giving waters of grace! (see Isaiah 30:25 & 33:16)

LOCATING THE DRAGON

.

star-charts winter constellations

.

The Revelation 12 Dragon Constellation can be located by finding Orion in winter months. The Dragon is to Orion’s left, and the Dragon’s mouth is right next to Orion’s shield. This Dragon’s mouth is the V-like constellation The Hyades Cluster, which is also known as the head of Taurus the Bull. The Dragon’s tail-tip is Pleiades and the lower shaft of his tail is partly of Aries and Pisces. Then with aid of a dark and starry night, you may begin to connect the mouth and the tail with a very long body in an oval shape. The front and back legs are made of a few stars: the front legs partially of stars from Taurus . The back legs and rear fin are made of 6 stars from the Cetus Constellation.

.

.

.

.

.

BODY HARD TO SEE

.

The long oval-shaped body has relatively few stars, but can been seen, howbeit with a dark, starry night. The four stars of the front fins are made partially of Taurus .

.

.

.

.

.

.

FIRST APPEARS IN MID-SUMMER

Dragon of Revelation 12 Constellation

.

This Dragon constellation appears in the eastern horizon about mid-summer in the pre-dawn hours, spewing his flood-waters northward toward the Revelation 12 Woman in Travail (not pictured in this chart).

.

The Wave of Water is primarily composed of the Constellation Auriga. There are two dimmer stars (#’s 1 & 2) which are closest to the Dragon’s mouth. These two dimmer stars are also part of this Wave of Water.
