Revelation 12:1-6, 13-17: “And a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars. She was pregnant and was crying out in birth pains and the agony of giving birth. And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great red dragon, with seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven diadems. His tail swept down a third of the stars of heaven and cast them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she bore her child he might devour it. She gave birth to a male child, one who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron, but her child was caught up to God and to his throne, and the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, in which she is to be nourished for 1,260 days… And when the dragon saw that he had been thrown down to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.The serpent poured water like a river out of his mouth after the woman, to sweep her away with a flood. But the earth came to the help of the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river that the dragon had poured from his mouth. Then the dragon became furious with the woman and went off to make war on the rest of her offspring, on those who keep the commandments of God and hold to the testimony of Jesus. And he stood on the sand of the sea.”
We saw the great sign in the heavens on September 23, 2017 (though it was in process before and after that day), warning us of what was about to take place. Since then, war in the heavens have ensued, and the devil is about to be thrown to the earth. Numerous prophecies have predicted that the Bride, “the woman” of Revelation 12, is going to be snatched out of harms way at the time the devil is cast down in order to be trained and empowered to return to the battle field and bring in a great harvest of souls. This concept is reiterated here in Revelation 12: “But the woman was given the two wings of the great eagle so that she might fly from the serpent into the wilderness, to the place where she is to be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time.” Meanwhile, the rest of the body of Christ will be left in the fray to suffer great testing. Only the church of Philadelphia was given the following promise: “Because you have kept my word about patient endurance, I will keep you from the hour of trial that is coming on the whole world, to try those who dwell on the earth” (Revelation 3:10).
It came to me tonight (which the Lord had not revealed to me in my last post) that my Theater dream had an aspect that reinforced the idea of the Bride being snatched away for a period of time. The first time I went down the exit ramp from the theater represents that snatching away. It is why some of my friends were not with me–because they had not been purified as needed for this time. It is also why I did not have my shoes, because during this time, God’s bride will not be spreading the gospel; she will be in a holding period. My return to the theater reveals the bride’s return to the battle field. At this time, the shoes will be returned to her to spread the gospel and bind up the enemy, and they will be shoes of great mobility. Praise the LORD!
Isaiah 57:1-2: “The righteous man perishes,
and no one lays it to heart;
devout men are taken away,
while no one understands.
For the righteous man is taken away from calamity;
he enters into peace;
they rest in their beds
who walk in their uprightness.”
Proverbs 11:8: “The righteous is delivered from trouble, and the wicked walks into it instead.”
