On September 23,
2017, this Great Wonder or Great Sign in Heaven will appear in the sky:
the nine stars of Leo and three planets of Venus, Mars and Mercury form
the crown of twelve stars above the head of Virgo, the woman, and the
moon will be at the foot of Virgo. The Sun will be at the shoulder of
Virgo as Virgo is "clothed by the Sun" and Jupiter will pass out
from Virgo as it is given birth by Virgo. This astrological sign matches
the "Great Sign" described in Revelation 12, which generates great
interest of speculation by the public, and everyone wants to know whether
it has any special prophetic meaning or just a coincident in the
there are hundreds, if not thousands, of articles and videos commenting about this
"Great Wonder/Sign in Heaven". Some people claim it as the "End of the World" with
a Planet X named Nibiru hitting the earth on September 23, 2017, but NASA already
disputed it. After all the natural disasters and the Great Eclipse in the recent months,
along with wars in the Middle East and the rumor of nuclear war with North Korea,
many Christians agreed this is the sign of Rapture, but they just don't know how it will
play out in the real world. Most people only pay attention to the doomsday conspiracy,
but they forget that the most important figure in the Great Sign of Revelation 12 is
actually that "Man Child" in Revelation 12:5. So, who is this "Man Child" prophesied in
Revelation 12:5 or what does that sign mean?
Some people think this "Man Child" was referred to baby Jesus born two thousand years ago, but the prophecies in the Book of Revelation were about the future events after the first century, not before. Some people even think this "Man Child" is referred to the Church or Israel, but they don't understand that this "Man Child" will "rule all nations with the rod of iron." (Revelation 12:5) Neither church nor Israel has such power and authority. The only person has such power and authority is the "Rider on the White Horse" in Revelation 19:11-16. Here are the two related verses in Revelation 12:1-5 and 19:11-16:
- "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… And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne." (Revelation 12:1-5, KJV)
- "And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war…
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS." (Revelation 19:11-16)
Now, after comparing these two verses,
everything is clear: The "Man Child" in Revelation 12:5 is the same person as the "Rider on
the White Horse" in Revelation 19:11. The Revelation 12 prophesied the birth of this "Man Child" and Revelation 19 prophesied the coming out of this "Man Child" after he grew up as the "Rider on the White Horse" for the "Second Coming". All the past interpretations of the prophecy of this "Man Child" are incorrect. Only the "Man Child" himself knows how these prophecies were fulfilled.
In fact, this "Man Child" in Revelation 12:5 is already here. He is a real person who was born under the reign of the "Red Dragon" which caused the largest religious persecution on the faith of God in the world history just to "devour the child the moment he was born". (Revelation 12:4) It's the same situation as baby Jesus born two thousand years ago under the reign of King Herod who ordered the killing of all new-born babies just to kill Jesus.
As Jesus was the "First Child" prophesied in the Bible Isaiah 9:6, this "Man Child" in Revelation 12:5 is the "Second Child" prophesied in the Bible. The "First Child" prophesied in the Old Testament was revealed in the New Testament of the Bible, and the "Second Child" prophesied in the New Testament will be revealed in the New Millennium Testament of the Bible, the "Eternal/Everlasting Gospel" for "every nation, and kindred, and tone and people" prophesied in the Revelation 14:6. This "Second Child" in the Bible, the "Man Child" in Revelation 12:5, is the "Rider on the White Horse" in Revelation 19:11 to fulfill the prophecy of the "Second Coming" as most people anticipated for the New Millennium.
Now, as the Great Sign of Revelation 12 appears in the Heaven, Jupiter will come out of Virgo
on September 23, 2017. Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System. In ancient Roman mythology,
Jupiter was also the God of the sky and the King of all gods with the "Rod of Iron" in
his hand, equivalent to Zeus in Greek mythology. God uses Jupiter, the King of all gods in ancient mythology,
in this Great Sign of Revelation 12 in Heaven to confirm that the "Man Child" in the vision of Revelation
12:5 is the "King of Kings and Lord of Lords" with the "Rod of Iron" in Revelation 19:11-16 for the long-awaited "Second Coming".

The timing of this
Great Sign is also very important in this year 2017. It happens right
after the two days of the Feast of Trumpets on September 21 and
22, 2017. As prophesied in 1 Thessalonians, "For the Lord himself
shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel,
and with the TRUMP of God." (1 Thessalonians 4:16,KJV or "Trumpet" in NIV)
The "Trumpet", or "Trump" in KJV, is a key feature in the prophecy of the "Second Coming".
That's why Mr. Trump, against all odds and with a miraculous turn-around in the
last week of the election, became the President of the United States
of America in 2017 when the Great Sign of the "Second Coming" happens.
Whether people like him or not, President Trump's name was indeed
written in the Bible's prophecy almost two thousand years ago, just like Persian King Cyrus'
name was in Isaiah's prophecy about rebuilding the destroyed Jerusalem(Isaiah 44:28).
There is also a
great significance about the year 2017 in the biblical sense. The year 2017
is the Hebrew year 5777 in the Jewish Calendar and 777 represents God's
number of completion and perfection. Therefore, this year 2017 is the
perfect year to complete God's prophecy of the "Second Coming"
after the Trump (KJV, or trumpet in NIV) sounds and Jupiter, the "King
of gods" in ancient mythology (the "King of kings" in Revelation
19:16), comes out of Virgo, the Woman in Revelation 12. These are all the metaphors God used to indicate and
fulfill His prophecy.
Combining the Great Sign
of Revelation 12 with the great timing of the Feast of Trumpets
in 2017, the prophecy of the "Second Coming" is completed! It is
the coming of the "Man Child" prophesied in Revelation 12 who grew
up to become the "Rider on the White Horse" in Revelation 19.
This "Man Child" in Revelation 12:5 and the "Rider on a White
Horse" in Revelation 19:11-16 will come out to reveal the true meaning
of this Great Sign and the Rapture and to decode the 2,000-year mystery
of the Book of Revelation.
The visions in the Book of Revelation are not about the disasters at the End of the World, but about the major historical events in the Christian history in the last two thousand years, just like the visions in the Book of Daniel prophesying the major historical events of the rising of the four kingdoms from 600 BC to 1 BC. And the Rapture is not about the physical lift but about the spiritual lift of the faithful, just like John was lifted "in the Spirit" to the heaven (Revelation 4:1-2) while his body still remained on the island of Patmos.
The "Man Child" who was born under the reign of the "Red Dragon" and was "caught up unto God and to His throne" right after his birth in Revelation 12 will come back as the "Rider on a White Horse" in Revelation 19:11 after he grew up and spiritually awakened. His physical body remained on the earth to grow up like a normal child, but his spirit was lifted to heaven after his birth. After he was spiritually awakened at the beginning of the New Millennium, his spirit came back to the earth as described in Revelation 14, 16 & 19.
Now, this "Man Child" in the Great Sign of Revelation 12 will come out and lift people to a new spiritual height so that people can see the history from heavenly level, just like John was lifted to the heavenly level from the island of Patmos, to understand how God had intervened throughout human history at both earthly level and heavenly level. Only after people are lifted to the new spiritual height will they see the full picture of the Word of God for both the East and the West. That's the Rapture is truly about.
"Blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear. For truly I tell you, many prophets and righteous people longed to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it." (Matthew 13:16-17)
All these fascinating fulfillments of
the prophecies is revealed in the New Millennium Testament for the New
Millennium, the "Eternal Gospel for every nation, kindred, tongue, and
people" (Revelation 14:6). For more details, please visit the
