“Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.” – Rev. 12:1,2
This sign was seen in the heavens in September, 2017 as the Sun was under the head of Virgo and the Moon was under her feet.
In November of 2016 the planet Jupiter entered the constellation Virgo and went into retrograde. Because of its large orbit compared to earth’s, Jupiter appears to be moving back and forth called retrograde motion. It continues in this retrograde motion until September 23, 2017, a period of 42 weeks minus 1 day, which is a normal human birth cycle, when it leaves Virgo on its trip to the constellation Taurus. Just above Virgo is the constellation Leo which has 9 stars. At this time there are also 3 planets just below Leo, Mercury, Mars, and Venus, thus making the 12 stars that form Virgo’s crown.

There are many voices warning about the great sign in Revelation 12 today. Predictions about the Lord’s return abound and it is easy to get confused. I recently concluded a series on Revelation for Beginners which you can view on this site. I am not a proponent of setting dates other than those the Lord Himself has set. So, in this article, I would like to highlight some times the Lord clearly set. Let’s begin with the prophet Daniel. In Daniel 9:24-27, he is given a prophecy of 70 weeks for the timeline of Israel.

So far, we have covered Christ’s letters to the seven churches (Rev. 2, 3), the Heavenly Throne of God (Rev. 4), the Scroll with seven seals (Rev. 5), the Seals of God (Rev. 6), the sealing of God’s servants (Rev. 7), and the seven trumpets of judgment (Rev. 8-10), the Two Witnesses and the last trumpet (Rev. 11).
The are many interpretations of these events but, I believe as the end of these things nears, God will make them clearer to those who search for God’s truth. I believe most of the events so far are chronological but, there may be some that fold back upon previous events thus giving further revelation about them and some of the events are happening at the same time and only appear chronological because that is the only way John could write them down.

I recently gave a teaching in our church fellowship on upcoming signs in the heavens that have exciting and far reaching implications for us all. While I cannot go into all the details I shared in church, the many questions I received made me see that many Christians have little knowledge and understanding of the messages God has left for us in the stars of the heavens. Therefore, I prepared this video that covers basic truth about upcoming prophetic signs revealed in the heavens. I pray you will enjoy it and that it will encourage you.
There are many more details that these heavenly signs bring to mind, such their relation to Daniels prophesies in chapters 9, 11 and 12 or their relationship to the seals of Revelation chapter six. How is their time line related to the teaching of Jesus in Matthew 24, Luke 21, or Mark 13? And how do they relate to the Feasts of the Lord?
(For example, the Moon of Virgo occurs two days after the crescent Moon that begins the Feast of Trumpets and the final part of the Draco sign occurs on the Feast of Tabernacles.)
There is much more to study but one thing is certain – all these signs indicate there is not much time left before major changes in the world begin. This is indeed the Day of Salvation and I encourage you to make every effort to line your life up with God’s plan.
When God created the heavens and the earth He placed in the heavens patterns among the stars that have prophetic messages for mankind. Some have been fulfilled and some are yet to be fulfilled. One, which has end-time implications, is about to be fulfilled – it is the sign of the Seed of the Woman, which is displayed in the constellation Virgo.
“And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years” – Genesis 1:14
Shortly after the Creation Satan was at work, deceiving and accusing, and both Adam and Eve fell. As Adam is known as the Man, so Eve is known as the Woman. To the woman was given the first prophetic promise of Messiah, who is known as the Seed of the Woman. Continue reading
