Revelation 12

Modern Translation of Revelation 12

Revelation 12 has three stories to tell. Each story is allegorical and two events are explored within each story. This is reminiscent of archaic Hebrew; of course John the Revelator was Jewish, in prison and “layin” it between the lines a long time before Peter, Paul and Mary. The first story examines the birth of Jesus Christ as well as the birth of the zero year.

The second story examines the expulsion of Satan on two different occasions. The third story examines Satan’s rage at both Jesus Christ and the zero year.

Story #1

12:1    “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven (civilization); a woman (Mary/zero year) clothed (calculated) with the sun (God/mathematically correct solar rotation), and the moon (Angels/lunar rotation) under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars (of the house of Israel/correct alignment of months):

12:2    And she (Mary/zero year) being with child (Jesus Christ/everlasting gospel) cried, travailing in birth (born/implemented), and pained to be delivered (Messianic Prophecy/Sosigenes).

12:3    And there appeared another wonder in heaven (civilization); and behold a great red dragon (Julian calendar), having seven heads (seven hills of Rome/seven blasphemous months) and ten horns (Roman Civilization/10 original months in the Roman Republican calendar), and seven crowns (names of false gods – Janus, Februa, Martius, Aprilis, Maius, Juniius and Julius Caesar) upon his head (month names/Daniel’s “seven weeks” 9:25; 7 heads * 7 crowns = 49 years).

12:4    And his (Julius Caesar/Messiah) tail (flatteries Dan.11:21/forecast Dan. 11:24) drew the third part (year of confusion/inclusive leap days) of heaven, and did cast them to the earth (period of time after zero year): and the dragon (Herod the Great/Satan) stood before the woman (Mary/zero year) which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child (Jesus Christ/everlasting gospel) as soon as it was born.

12:5    And she (Mary/zero year) brought forth a man child (Jesus Christ/everlasting Gospel), who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron (Kingdom of God/Ephemeris calendar); and her child was caught up unto God (ascension/ascended; Rev. 11:12 ), and to his throne.

12:6    And the woman (Mary/zero year) fled into the wilderness (Egypt/Dark Ages), where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.”

According to John the Revelator, Herod the Great died 1260 days from the birth of Christ (inclusively of course), Matt. 2:15. Jesus Christ was born on Tuesday March 26th, 1 B.C., therefore, Herod the Great died on Monday September 4th, A.D. 2. The Julian calendar was officially adopted at the Council of Nicaea in A.D.325, and lasted until A.D. 1582. 1260 years later was A.D.1585 – three years too long for the Gregorian calendar to be the determinant factor, but Revelation 11 alters the time period by 3.5 years. The true Ephemeris calendar was hidden during the Dark Ages, but for only 1257 years. Perhaps the “wise men from the east” arrived when Jesus was three and one half days old?

  Story #2

12:7    “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,

12:8    And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.”

Satan was created on the fifth day (Gen. 1:21), “living creature”. Satan was called the “anointed cherub” on the day he was created (Ezekiel 28:13,14). He ruined the fifth day of creation causing God to not designate that day as a good day and was thrown out of heaven that day (Ezekiel 28:16). The thirty-seventh day Satan (serpent; Gen. 3:14; Rev. 12:9) is in the Garden of Eden (Ezekiel 28:13), having been thrown out of heaven and now confronting Eve (Gen. 3:1-5). 

12:9    “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

12:10  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

12:11  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12:12  Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.”

This event could not happen before the life of Job. So, it is a different event than the one spoken about in verses 7 and 8. There doesn’t seem to be any explanation in the Bible for when this judgement upon Satan occurred. It had to be at the Crucifixion of Christ. “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth” (Matt. 28:18; Luke 10:18; John 12:31,32).  No one in heaven believed Satan anymore, it was obvious he was a terrorist and murderer. “kingdom of God”, “Christ”, “sea” and “earth” are all elements of the period of time from Julius Caesar’s calendar implementation until the crucifixion. Satan wasn’t allowed the luxury of entrance into the correct days of the calendar in heaven. Verse 11 is a very graphic picture of the story in Fox’s Book of Martyrs. There is absolutely no record of any religious group in the Middle Ages with knowledge of the “Everlasting Gospel” (heavenly calendar), until Harriet and Dee in England and Kepler in Germany in A.D. 1609.

  Story #3

12:13  “And when the dragon (Herod the Great/ Satan) saw that he was cast unto the earth (period of time after zero year), he persecuted the woman (Mary/zero year) which brought forth the man child (Christ/everlasting gospel).

12:14  And to the woman (Mary/zero year) were given two wings (wise men; shepherds/two days) of a great eagle (periods of time), that she might fly into the wilderness (Egypt/Dark Ages), into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent (Herod/Satan).

This period of time is deciphered from Daniel’s 2300 days (Daniel 12:12). We know a “time” equals ten (ten plus twenty plus fifteen is 45). This period of 45 days was described in Revelation 12:14 as “Time, and times, and half a time” – or 45 days, from July 23 – Sept. 4,  A.D. 2,  when the family lived in Egypt.  Also, this period of time is deciphered as the 1260 years of the reign of the “two witnesses” (sun and moon; Rev. 11:3) – so a time can also be interpreted as 280 years (280 +  560 + 420 = 1260 years). The divisional equivalent is 4.5 (John was good at math).

12:15  And the serpent (Herod/Satan) cast out of his mouth (governmental position) water (lies/deception) as a flood (sentence/judgment) after the woman (Mary/zero year), that he might cause her to be carried away (captured,killed/destroyed) of the flood.

This also refers to Caesar Augustus’ council of  Monday September 13th, 5 B.C. that attempted to replace the zero year with additional leap days.

12:16  And the earth (period of time) helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth (truth, salvation; John 4:14/sun,moon), and swallowed up the flood (sentence/judgment) which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

12:17  And the dragon (Herod/Satan) was wroth with the woman (Mary/Eve,zero year), and went to make war with the remnant (2 year old children, Abel/extra two days), which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.”
