Undoubtedly, we are all aware that we are in the last days of the age, even without being told, there are many changes in politics, nature, lifestyle – in humanity as a whole, pointing us to this fact as truth.

It is time to start asking questions. God is willing to answer anyone who is interested. He has never wanted to keep anything from those who want to know the truth. However, one major principle of His Kingdom is that “if you don’t ask you don’t get”.

“Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” [Matthew 7:7]

Round And Hanging on Nothing

Round And Hanging on Nothing

I will be opening one of the most mysterious Books of the Bible – the Book of Revelation! This Book was historically dated to have been written sometime between 70AD and 95AD. Whatever the year may have been, it was definitely some DECADES after Jesus Christ had resurrected.

Out of these 30 key points of this Book, I will be picking on one. It came about at one of our online Bible Studies when a lady asked, “Who is the woman of Revelation 12, and who is the ManChild she gave birth to?”

Before I start my 40 questions to probe what the Bible is saying here, I would like to draw your attention to the statement of Jesus Christ at the very beginning of the Book, this verse is quite important to unlocking this mystery.

“The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:” [Revelation 1:1]

Then later as Jesus continued to reveal things to John the Beloved, a mystery was unfolded to him.

“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.” [Revelation 12:1-2]

  1. Who is this woman?
  2. Is it Mary the earthly mother of Jesus?
  3. How can this be Mary considering the statement of Jesus in Revelation 1:1?
  4. Who is the Man Child mentioned in verse 5?
  5. Was the Book of Revelation not written AFTER Jesus Christ had ascended into heaven?
  6. Why would Jesus Christ have to get being reborn as an event that “must shortly come to pass” according to Revelation 1:1?
  7. Why would “Mary” be clothed with the Sun?
  8. Why would the Moon be under her feet?
  9. What is this Sun? Just some object or sign in the sky?
  10. What is this Moon? Another object in the sky?
  11. Are these two major objects not representing something more spiritual?
  12. Why is this mentioned as a GREAT wonder in verse 1?
  13. The Truth will set YOU Free

    The Truth will set YOU Free

    Why was this woman in labour?

  14. Why was this woman in pain to give birth?
  15. Who is this great, fiery red dragon?
  16. What are the seven heads of this dragon?
  17. What are the ten horns of this dragon?
  18. What are the seven crowns or diadems upon his head?
  19. What is this tail of the dragon with which he fought against saints?
  20. A third of the stars of heaven fell to the earth, what could this mean spiritually?
  21. How can stars be thrown to the earth – are stars not literally as large as (or even larger) than the earth?
  22. How was the dragon given access to the woman – ready to kill?
  23. Why does the dragon want to kill the Man Child?
  24. Who is the Man Child mentioned again – he is to rule the nations with a rod of iron in verse 5?
  25. Why is this child called a Man Child and not just a son?
  26. Why was this Man Child caught up to God and His Throne?
  27. If the Man Child gets caught up into heaven, how will he rule the nations with a rod of iron?
  28. The woman had to flee into the wilderness – Why? What does this mean?
  29. Why was she in the wilderness for 1,260 days?
  30. Where is the dragon during this period of those 1,260 days?
  31. In which heaven was the devil and his angels cast down by Michael and his angels?
  32. What was the secret of Michael’s victory over Satan?
  33. Why was the woman given two wings of an eagle to fly into the wilderness?
  34. Why the wilderness and not to heaven just like the Man Child?
  35. What is a time, times and half a time?
  36. What is the water spewed by the dragon out of his mouth?
  37. Why is the water from the mouth of a reptile like a flood?
  38. Why would the earth open her mouth to swallow the flood?
  39. Why would the dragon make war with “the remnant of her seed” of the Woman?
  40. Who are these remnants of her SEED?

Just within these seventeen verses of chapter twelve, we find all these forty questions and possibly more, perhaps if you dig a little deeper, you will discover more.

Do you know why you should seek GOD for the answers to these pertinent questions? Because He wants you to know, He wants you to live as His shining light and not be in darkness. He wants you to be aware of what He is doing in these End Times. So, you just can’t walk away from the TRUTH.

“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.” [Hosea 4:6]

Can you see  why you cannot afford to be ignorant or remain in the dark? God, your Heavenly Father wants you to know what is happening in this End of Days!

Brother John

My name is simply Brother John. Saved and delivered by Jesus Christ just before my 16th birthday, nothing better could have happened to me in my entire life! Read a little more about my encounter with Christ here: Satan Taught Me... https://brotherjohn.org/satan-taught-me-jesus-mastered-me/ .... When I see that something has blessed me in one way or the other, then I want everybody to hear it and get blessed as much, if not much more. I worship with other believers at the The Platts Road Fellowship. In the truest sense of it, BrotherJohn.org is now more than the personal blog of the person who started it, it has evolved into a TEAM of some world-wide believers, who prefer to remain anonymous. This blog has one purpose: give you practical steps in walking with God. The steps can be found in the fresh Letters From God.

    Thanks for this comprehensive number of questions, Brother John. I always thought that woman was the mother of Jesus, that is, the Virgin Mary, but reading through the chapter and also Revelation 1 vs 1 as you mentioned, I can only ask you back, who do you think that woman is? Yes, I can see it is not the mother of Jesus. I’m curious.

    I think the dragon is the Devil, because verse 9 says so.

    Apart from these, the remaining looks mysterious, but I’m curious to know. Would you be supplying the answers to all those 40 questions?

  2. Brother John May 26, 2013

    Dear Adrian, thanks for your comment. I will be addressing the 40 questions in my next post. However, the questions are meant for everyone to go back and STUDY the Word of God. God Bless.

  3. Nicholas June 1, 2013

    Thanks for these questions, Brother John.
    I am looking forward to the answers, when will you be tackling them?
    I am very much interested in the water coming out of the dragon’s mouth and how it turned into a flood. Sounds interesting 🙂

    Hello brother John, I must admit that I’m really caught into these issues and in fact I cant wait to start getting the answers particularly from you……. These and many other issues from this book have spurred many arguments between myself and others. I really await the answers God bless!

  5. Brother John June 4, 2013

    Well, the truth of the matter is not everybody will have the divine revelation or the spiritual understanding of this truth. For this reason, there is no need for arguments; the Word of God gives a clear revelation and understanding of this mystery, however, some will read or see it and never understand because it is not GIVEN to them.

    The understanding of these mysteries is for the saints of God, in fact, not all the saints, BUT those whom God has chosen. So, what if He has chosen you to understand and not chosen the brother with whom you are arguing? The argument will be completely fruitless.

    When you know and understand the answers to these questions, it is not for you (or any of us) to boast or use it to show off, it is that we may not live or walk in darkness because we are the children of Light.

    Thanks brother John, I’m enlightened…….. Loooking forward to the next post.

    Many thanks to God for this opportunity given to brother John and to many that will share in this knowledge of the revelation given to John the beloved. Some of the occurrences in the book of revelation are symbolic in nature and also enveloped timeless spiritual warfare.

    13:10 ”And the disciples came and said to Him (Jesus), why do You speak in parables?” 11. Jesus answer and said to them, Because it has been given to you to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. I believe God wants us to understand the mysteries as a believer. Prov. 25:2 ”It is the glory of God to conceal a matter: but a honour of a king is to search out a matter.”

    In Gen.3:15 God made a declaration ”I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and the her offspring; he shall bruise your head and you shall bruise his heel.”

    In Gen. 35:10,11 And God said to him, ”Your name is Jacob, your name shall not be called Jacob anymore, but Israel shall be your name,” So He called his name Israel.
    11. Also God said to him: ” I am God Almighty . Be fruitful and multiply; a nation and a company of nations shall proceed from you, and kings shall come from your body.

    God birth Israel as a nation and a company of nations shall proceed from you, and kings shall come from your body.
    Gen.37:9 Then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers, and said, ”Look I have dreamed another dream. And this time, the sun, the moon, and the eleven stars bowed down to me.” That means including Joseph, that represents a star.

    1.The woman is Israel, Ezek. 16:27-30, that gave birth to Jesus
    2.The Child is Jesus, in the time of king Herod, tried to kill Jesus in Jerusalem (Matt.2:13-17)
    3 The dragon represent Satan

    We have heard, seen and touched the truth as the Word of Life, that lived among us as flesh. John 1:14 ”And the word became flesh and dwell among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

    To be continue……………..
