WITNESSING THROUGH TRIALS

.

.

“And there appeared

a great wonder (sign) in heaven;

a woman clothed with the sun,

and the moon under her feet,

and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:”

Revelation 12:1

In the Night Heavens, God has created a constellation which corresponds to the Revelation 12 Woman.

.

You see, God has placed in the heavens, the symbol of His bride, the Church-Faithful. In the summer night-sky, she appears as the woman-in-travail. This is the constellation, Ursa Major. And this article will introduce you to this amazing sign of Heaven, and what it means to you and to me.

PRECIOUS SEED

If you will notice, the stars coming out of her right foot and right hand. It almost appears as if she is dropping seeds. And isn’t it true that when we come to the Lord, we are constantly trying to tell others about Jesus. Yes, as clumsy as we are, we nevertheless try to get others to share in our excitement about Salvation. And so, the right hand is symbolic of conscious and deliberate works.

.

Listen… “But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:” Matthew 6:3.

.

So Jesus presents this same spiritual concept, regarding the right hand, and the left hand.

FLEEING IN WINTER

.woman of Revelation 12 Flees to Wilderness-www.signsofheaven.org

Now if you will look at this same constellation in winter, it flips upside down and now appears as the same Revelation 12 Woman, as a fleeing woman. But in her upside-down position, she now appears to be casting seed from her left hand and left foot.

.

So what is the significance of this left handed effort?

.

.

.

.

.

BOOK OF DANIEL

.

This right hand/left hand concept is perhaps, best illustrated in the Book of Daniel.

.

And so, if we look into the Book of Daniel, we can see this concept of witnessing through trials. Yes, repeatedly in that little book, Daniel and his three Hebrew companions were faced with life-threatening trials. And each and every time, these four Hebrews remained faithful to God. And in so-doing, they became a great witness for Jehovah God. Yes, even the King of Babylon was pierced in heart by their courage, and by God’s deliverance of Daniel and the three Hebrews.

.

But it is very interesting, that never did these four Hebrews ever do any
other type of witnessing! No, in Daniel, there is no mention of any vocal witnessing, except during the moments of extreme trial!

.

.

.

.

.

REVELATION 12 WOMAN CASTING SEED

.

.

And so, this Revelation 12 Woman in her fleeing position in winter puts a great big exclamation mark on this concept of witnessing through trials.

.

And so, the seeds which appear to be scattering from her left hand and left foot are a heavenly Revelation 12 Dragon w/textportrait of how God’s people unknowingly are witnessing, as they are merely fleeing from Satan’s deadly wave of destruction, as he attempts to destroy the Church and Christ’s seed in the earth!

FLEEING TO THE MOUNTAINS, A WITNESS

.Constellation- Woman of Revelation 12 flees to the mountains Mark 13:14

“In the LORD put I my trust: how say ye to my soul, Flee as a bird to your mountain?” Psalm 11:1

.

As the Christian decides to cast away the idols of the World, and begins to flee to the Narrow Gate, people will take notice! And so, just as this Revelation 12 Woman is casting seed as she flees, so too will Christians as they likewise flee!

WITNESSING IN ILLNESShttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Munch_Det_Syke_Barn_1896.jpg

.

The child of God can be a great witness to the world, even in sickness.

.

As the world beholds the faith and trust, and even the peace and joy of the afflicted Believer, it sticks in their mind. Because they instinctively know that someday, sooner or later they too will get sick and die!

.

And so, such a witness can and will be God’s opportunity to bring souls to Salvation, as they behold your faith and love and peace which surpasses all understanding!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

.

.

. 

WOMAN ROTATES THROUGH THE SEASONS…

.

This page is about the Big Dipper, also called the Great Bear constellation (Ursa Major ). However, the ancient pagan cultures did not see this constellation as God intended it to be seen. It is actually a headless woman in childbirth.  This is seen in springtime. It is seen in the northern skies. 

.

But as the seasons progress, this travailing woman flips upside down, now appearing as a woman with upraised arms like eagle wings who is running (eventually flying, as shown in sketch on right) into the wilderness (westward). The single star representing her birth-child (Christ) now becomes her head (“Christ is the head of the church.” Ephesians 5:23

.

The 7 Stars (Big Dipper) is easy to see with its very bright 7 stars. But the Revelation 12 Woman (Ursa Major) must be seen on a dark starry night, away from city lights. 

.

These are star charts from Wikipedia, with sketches of the Woman added.
