The continuation [Part 3] of the false Messiah coming into the world as the true Messiah and deceiving many, especially, the nation of Israel. If you haven’t read yet Part 2, click on the link below.
Revelation 12:6, 13-17
6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness where she had a place prepared by God, so that there she would be nourished for 1,260 days.
The “woman” mentioned here is Israel. For more details on the word “fled” read Matthew 24:15-18. God sends His people to “the wilderness” as He has prepared a place of safety for them away from the dragon’s reach. The word “nourished” refers to God providing for their basic needs. God will protect them “for 1,260 days” which will be the second half of the three and a half years.
13 And when the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child. 14 But the two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, so that she could fly into the wilderness to her place, where she was nourished for a time, times, and half a time, away from the presence of the serpent. 15 And the serpent hurled water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that he might cause her to be swept away with the flood. 16 But the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and drank up the river which the dragon had hurled out of his mouth. 17 So the dragon was enraged with the woman, and went off to make war with the rest of her children, who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus.
“The dragon” who is Satan, will be defeated in the war of wars, which will occur in the second half of the Great Tribulation. “The woman” represents the nation of Israel, which Satan will try to destroy after he loses the war of wars that takes place in heaven. “The male Child” refers to Jesus Christ, who was born in Jerusalem. The phrase “the two wings of the great eagle” (read Exodus 19:4 & Psalm 91:4 for the meaning of it) will show that God Himself will take them to safety. The phrase “nourished for a time, times, and half a time” refers to three and a half years of safety. The phrase “the serpent” is another title for Satan, which points back to the beginning in the Book of Genesis Chapter 3, who caused the downfall of Adam and Eve.
The phrase “hurled water like a river” could refer to an army sent after the Jewish people to kill them all. The phrase “the earth helped the woman” means that the Lord will intervene to help the Jewish people. After God helps “the woman” who is Israel, Satan, the dragon, will become “enraged” since he was prohibited from destroying them. The phrase “the rest of her children” refers to the believers in Jesus Christ who resides in the other parts of the world. The phrase “keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus” means that not all who call themselves Christian are, but only those who keep the Word of God.
