I recently received a message from a member expressing her dismay at the present state of affairs in the United States and I again thought about the fulfillment of the Revelation 12 prophesy concerning the constellation Virgo. It clearly reveals that we are heading towards the tribulation. I think it places us somewhere between the 4th and 6th Seals of Revelation. So, what is this saying to us? I believe the Rev. 12 fulfillment of Virgo also has the answer for us.
In 2017 the Revelation sign of Virgo was fulfilled as Jupiter came forth from its retrograde motion in Virgo to represent the birth of the “man-child” that was to be caught up to God and His throne. I don’t think the ‘man-child’ represents Jesus Christ but, someone who is like Christ.
This someone else is portrayed in another constellation as well, the constellation Gemini, or the Twins. The larger twin on the left has a principal star named Pollux which means ‘the ruler’ or ‘the Judge’ or ‘the Toiling Deliverer’. The smaller twin on the right has a principal star named Castor which means ‘the Coming Ruler or Judge’. This constellation represents Christ and His Bride who is ‘to rule and reign’ with Christ. It is the promise of Jesus to those who overcome. –
“To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.” – Rev. 3:21
“And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’—as I also have received from My Father;” – Rev. 2:26, 27
We, the Church, are the ‘coming ruler’ because the marriage of the Lamb has not yet come (Rev. 19:7), we are near but, first we have to overcome. What do we have to overcome?
The letters to the seven churches in Revelation give us a clue. We are to return to our ‘first love’. One Church was not putting Jesus first in all things. Another Church had to face persecution and tribulation and they were warned “to be faithful until death”. Yet another Church was allowing the doctrine of Balaam in their midst. Remember, Balaam encouraged the Israelites to worship foreign gods and commit sexual immorality with foreigners. They also had those who were holding to the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which some say was teaching immoral sex was OK, like some ministers today are doing. But, years ago I asked the Lord what this doctrine was, and this is what the Holy Spirit showed me – Nicolaitan is a compound word made up of two words – ‘Nico’ which means ‘to get the power’ and ‘Laity’ which means ‘the people’. I believe it was a separation between the Clergy and the Laity which kept the people in the dark as to their function in the Body of Christ for centuries and still does.
Another Church was having trouble with Jezebel, a woman who wanted to preach and teach, which thing the Bible is against. Much of today’s Church is allowing women to be pastors but, the word of God does not allow it – suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence. (1 Tim. 2:12)). This does not mean a woman cannot be used in the gifts of the Holy Spirit but is restricting her from standing up front as a Pastor and exercise authority over men. You may not like it but it is the Word of God!
Another Church had become lukewarm, caught up in the things of the world. Jesus sent this letter as the head of the Church, and it is what He expects of His body.
Another thing we have to overcome is our own flesh. Paul writes about this in Galatians –
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envying’s, murders, drunkenness, reveling, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. . . . And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” – Gal. 5:19-21
Who among us has not struggled with some of these weaknesses? But the Twin who is seated with Christ in Gemini has overcome them plus the Antichrist –
“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. 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.” – Rev. 12:10-11
Now we know that the present Church is full of wheat and full of tares because Jesus said the tares would be there right to the end.
“Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.” – Matt. 13:30
I believe the ‘man-child’ that Virgo gave birth to on September 23, 2017, represents the remnant out of the wheat that is being caught up to God in the spirit to receive their instructions to return and stir up the wheat to make ready for the Great Harvest that is coming. The prophet Malachi said the prophet Elijah would come before the Day of the Lord but perhaps there will be many Elijah’s coming to restore the Family of God, turning the hearts of the fathers to the children and the children to the fathers. Besides preaching against sin they will no doubt press the truth that we are seated with Christ in the heavenlies far above all principalities and powers –
“And what is the exceeding greatness of his power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, Which he wrought in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, Which is his body, the fulness of him that fills all in all. . . . But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus:” – Eph. 1:19-2:6
The call is to take up the Cross, die to self, and follow Jesus Christ. The smaller Twin of Gemini, the Bride of Christ, is holding a harp in one hand and a bow and arrow in the other. This harp represents her victory and her praise to the Lord. The bow and arrow represent her warfare with the devil in prayer which are the arrows.
“And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God. And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvelous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints. Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.” – Rev. 15:2-4
That is the high call of God to all of us. Somewhere between the fourth and sixth seals Gemini will be fulfilled. I hope to see you there.
