Number 29 in the series Apocalypse of John

The vision of Revelation 12 involving a woman pursued by a seven-headed red dragon has inspired many different interpretations, but how would a first-century Jewish reader have understood the vision? Where is the place in the wilderness prepared for the woman? What is the flood that pours forth from the dragon's mouth? This teaching places Revelation 12 back in its context, explaining the symbolism.

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. (Revelation 12:17)

The seventh trumpet blows, signaling the big event when the day of wrath collides with the rage of nations. The temple on earth opens and the ark of the covenant is revealed. The kingdom of this world becomes the kingdom of Hashem and his Messiah. In this study of Revelation 11:14-19, the seventh trumpet blast initiates a process whereby the kingdom will be established.

And it came to pass, when the ark set forward, that Moses said, Rise up, LORD, and let thine enemies be scattered; and let them that hate thee flee before thee. (Numbers 10:35)

(Revelation 11:1-2)
