The Revelation of Y'shua the Anointed:
A Study into the Noahide Nazarene Way
By Ben Ruach ha Kodesh (John of AllFaith) © 9.19.09
Go to the index page for: The Revelation of Y'shua the Anointed
Having presented the sounding of the Seventh Shofar or Trumpet and showing us the Kingdom being established:11:15 The seventh angel sounded, and great voices in heaven followed, saying, "The kingdom of the world has become the Kingdom of our Lord, and of his Anointed. He will reign forever and ever!"
John now takes us back to the beginning of the Seven Years so that as we behold the birth pangs of the Kingdom we will recognize what is taking place.
In this Noahide Nazarene commentary on the Book of Revelation there are three main areas where I expect to have key disagreements with many Nicene Christian readers. First is my identification of the Nicolaitane Heresy and the usurpation of the Way by Roman Pagans. Most Nicean Christians will not be pleased to hear this information. Second is my rejection of the Rapture theory and third is my presentation of the identity of this woman and her child. In all three cases I am convinced that my views are correct and I invite readers to offer opposing (and/or supporting) views. Once we are in the Tribulation Period none of these three points will be that important: We will experience what we will experience. So my advise is to be like the Bereans in the Book of Acts and read these things with an open mind, and then search the scriptures to determine whether these things are so (Acts 17:10,11).
We begin:12:1 A great sign was seen in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.
Of the Jewish people HaShem says:Deuteronomy 32:8 When the Most High gave to the nations their inheritance,
when he separated the children of men,
he set the bounds of the peoples
according to the number of the children of Israel.
32:9 For Yahweh's portion is his people.
Jacob [i.e. Israel] is the lot of his inheritance.
32:10 He found him in a desert land,
in the waste howling wilderness.
He surrounded him.
He cared for him.
He kept him as the apple of his eye.
32:11 As an eagle that stirs up her nest,
that flutters over her young,
he spread abroad his wings, he took them,
he bore them on his feathers.
32:12 Yahweh alone led him.
There was no foreign god with him.
This "woman" is Israel. The twelve stars are the twelve tribes. The Sun in this context is Abraham and the Moon is Sarah. Those coming through the lineage of Sarah's servant Hagar are not included in this blessing. As the text says, only those who came through Jacob (whose name HaShem changed to Israel) are being referred to here.
People Israel are uniquely the apple of HaShem's Eye and Eretz Israel (the Land of Israel) is their eternal Home. Those who bless the Jews will be blessed by HaShem and those who oppose them will be cursed (Gen 12:1-3).
Master Y'shua told us that Israel would be reborn and that it would gradually put forth its leaves (Matt 24:32). Israel would not return suddenly under the reign of Moshiach as many expected but gradually, as a tree putting forth its leaves and sending out sprouts.
First a bit of relevant history: The United Kingdom under Solomon was divided after his death (circa 931 B.C.E.). Due to disobedience, HaShem eventually allowed the two resulting Kingdoms (the Northern Kingdom of Israel and the Southern Kingdom of Judah) to be conquered. The Northern Kingdom fell to Assyria in 721 B.C.E., the Southern Kingdom fell to Babylon in 586 B.C.E. From 586 B.C.E. on there was no independent Israel (other than very briefly under the Maccabean rebellion) until Israel's rebirth on May 14, 1948 (5 Iyar, 5708). Despite their lack of independence, the Israelites maintained their ethnic and religious identity and centered their existence in Eretz Yisrael (the Land of Israel). At the time of Y'shua the Anointed Israel was the Roman Province of Judea (Jerusalem had been the capital of the Southern Jewish Kingdom of Judah). The Jews of the Southern Kingdom (the tribes of Judah and Benjamin) returned to Eretz Israel after the Babylonian captivity, but the Jews of the Northern ten tribes were never heard from again. There's been a lot of speculation about the "lost ten tribes" but that doesn't concern our present study.
Prophet Daniel, living under the reign of Nebuchadnezzar, gives us this important information. When I do my commentary on his prophecy I will cover this material in detail, for now however note this prophecy:Daniel 4:10 Thus were the visions of my head on my bed: I saw, and behold, a tree in the midst of the earth and its height was great. 4:11 The tree grew and was strong and its height reached to the sky and its sight to the end of all the earth. 4:12 The leaves of it were beautiful and its fruit plentiful, and in it was food for all; the animals of the field had shadow under it, and the birds of the sky lived in its branches, and all flesh was fed from it.
4:13 I saw in the visions of my head on my bed, and behold, a watcher and a holy one came down from the sky.
4:14 "'He cried aloud, and said thus, "Cut down the tree and cut off its branches, shake off its leaves and scatter its fruit; let the animals get away from under it and the birds from its branches.
4:15 Nevertheless leave the stump of its roots in the earth, even with a band of iron and brass, in the tender grass of the field; and let it be wet with the dew of the sky; and let his portion be with the animals in the grass of the earth. 4:16 Let his heart be changed from man's, and let an animal's heart be given to him; and let seven times pass over him.
4:17 This sentence is by decree of the watchers, and this demand by the word of the holy ones; to the intent that the living may know that the Most High rules in the kingdom of men and gives it to whomever he will and sets up over it the lowest of men."
So... Nebuchadnezzar was King of the Babylonian Empire at this time. He was a powerful and haughty man with a penchant for mysticism; he was a firm believer in dreams and visions. The above is a dream he had. He shared it with many but only accepted Daniel's interpretation.
Prophet Daniel (or Belteshazzar as the King called him) was summoned to interpret the dream. Without going into too much detail here, the prophecies and interpretations of Daniel often had dual fulfillment. This was such a dream. It was fulfilled when the King went mad for seven years and then returned to his senses, but just as we saw with the Seven Churches, this prophecy had a dual purpose and meaning. For our present purposes, we are concerned with the greater fulfillment.
Under King Nebuchadnezzar the Jewish people lost their remaining earthly kingdom. We have discussed the image of Israel as a tree before in this study when looking at Romans 11 (where the grafted-on Gentile branches are even now being severed from the Tree of Israel). The Tree analogy deals with Israel as a political entity. As Israel began putting forth its leaves in 1948 Nicean Christianity began fading (as the Laodecian Church period -- discussed in chapters two and three -- continues). The same image is used here.
As a tree the Kingdom was "chopped down" by the Will of HaShem due to Israelite disobedience (we need not get into that recalcitrance here). However HaShem controls all things. While we have individual and collective freedom, HaShem has always been active in human affairs so that when the time comes His deliverance will be ready. As candidly recorded in the Tanach, the Israelites were not ready to accept the Kingship of HaShem at that time and so He banded the "stump of the tree of Israel" so that it would not grow again until the end of days: these days.
In 1948 (or arguably 1967) the essential End Time prophecy was fulfilled. The bands on the Tree of Israel were removed and the tree began to sprout. Prior to this happening those who understood the prophecies knew the End Times had not yet arrived as Paul warns (I Thess. 2:1,2). And even Y'shua the Anointed said he didn't know when this was going to happen (Mark 13:32). Those who failed to understand this key point fundamentally erred in their interpretations.
The bands of the tree were finally removed in 1947 and Israel gradually began to put forth leaves. Today Israel exists however it is not yet fully restored. Only part of Eretz Yisrael is under Israeli control and the country remains a democratic republic rather than the foretold theocracy. However as Y'shua said:Matthew 24:31 He [Moshiach] will send out his angels with a great sound of a shofar [trumpet], and they will gather together his chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the sky to the other.
24:32 "Now from the fig tree learn this parable. When its branch has now become tender, and puts forth its leaves, you know that the summer is near. 24:33 Even so you also, when you see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors.
24:34 Most certainly I tell you, this generation will not pass away, until all these things are accomplished. 24:35 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will not pass away. 24:36 But no one knows of that day and hour, not even the angels of heaven, but my Father only.
We are now seeing the tree putting forth its leaves. This began in 1948 with the rebirth of the nation for the first time since 586 B.C.E. The Master tells us that the generation that witnesses this event will be the one in which Moshiach will gather all the Jews back to Israel, sound the Seventh Shofar (as we have been discussing) and establish the Kingdom. This will happen. Moshiach will defeat the New World Order and its coming Rex Mundi, he will take to his Throne and the Seventh Shofar will be sounded.
When I complete this study I intend to do a verse by verse presentation of Daniel's Book -- God willing -- that will go into much of this in deeper detail.
On November 2, 1917 the Balfour Declaration declared that Israel would be reborn.
On May 14, 1948 that intention became a reality and the Tree of Israel (Daniel 4:10, Romans 11) began putting forth its leaves.
From 1949 until 1967 West Jerusalem served as Israel's capital, but was not recognized as such internationally because UN General Assembly Resolution 194 envisioned stealing Jerusalem and making it an international city. For this reason Tel Aviv is recognized as Israel's capital by the Globalists even though Jerusalem is Israel's eternal capital.
As a result of the Six-Day War in 1967, the whole of Jerusalem came under Israeli control. Because of a few verses regarding Zion some believe the date 1967 for the unbanding is more accurate than the 1948 date. On June 27, 1967, the government of Levi Eshkol extended Israeli law and jurisdiction to East Jerusalem, but unfortunately ceded control of the Temple Mount compound to the Jordanian waqf, under the Jordanian Ministry of Religious Endowments. Today Muslims are busy desecrating the Holy Temple Mount and looking for hidden treasures including, they hope, the ark of the covenant.
We continue:12:2 She was with child. She cried out in pain, laboring to give birth.
Israel began putting forth her leaves in 1947/1968 but the kingdom is being discussed here. Modern Israel is the precursor of the Theocratic Kingdom of HaShem, not that kingdom itself. World War One (Matt 24:6) was the beginning of the birth pangs. We might say that in 1947 the baby's head could be seen. However when Moshiach approaches the Throne of HaShem, reaches out his hand and takes the Seven Sealed Scrolls this prophecy will be fulfilled. Moshiach's taking up his destiny was previously described with these words:Revelation 5:2 I saw a mighty angel proclaiming with a loud voice, "Who is worthy to open the book, and to break its seals?"
5:3 No one in heaven above, or on the earth, or under the earth, was able to open the book, or to look in it. 5:4 And I wept much, because no one was found worthy to open the book, or to look in it.
5:5 One of the elders said to me, "Don't weep. Behold, the Lion who is of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has overcome; he will open the book and its seven seals."
5:6 I saw in the midst of the throne and of the four living creatures, and in the midst of the elders, a Lamb standing, as though it had been slain, having seven horns, and seven eyes, which are the seven Spirits of God, sent out into all the earth.
5:7 Then he came, and he took it out of the right hand of him who sat on the throne.
5:8 Now when he had taken the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each one having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the holy ones.
A very long labor indeed!12:3 Another sign was seen in heaven. Behold, a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his heads seven crowns. 12:4 His tail drew one third of the stars of the sky, and threw them to the earth. The dragon stood before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth he might devour her child.
The meaning is clear now that the context has been established.
What may not be completely clear however is this description of the Red Dragon having seven heads and ten horns with seven crowns on his heads. In my upcoming study of the Book of Daniel I'll be going into this in some depth. For now, you might find my study The Image of the Beast helpful. The image is of Lucifer and his earthly power base, the Merovingian House that rules Europe and controls the developing Globalist Empire over which Rex Mundi will soon reign. For the purposes of this present study this should suffice I think.
The great red dragon is Lucifer, master of the third of the angels that joined his rebellion and Lord of the Order of the Defeated Dragon and the Merovingian controlled Novus Ordo Seclorum.
Order of the Defeated Dragon - Merovingian Bloodline
We now return to Revelation 6:1 for a moment to get our bearing. As we saw there, as Moshiach opened the First Sealed Scroll Rex Mundi, seated on his white war stallion, advanced onto the world stage. This is the point being discussed here using different symbolism than we saw earlier. The earlier description was focused on matters on the Earth. This description is revealing the scenes unfolding in the celestial realms.
Note that Moshiach is no humble baby being born here! He is the leader of HaShem's Celestial Forces! He is opening the Seven Seals and revealing the previously hidden plans of HaShem. The child therefore is not Y'shua as many suppose, but the Kingdom of HaShem being born.12:5a She gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron.
Again, this is not a gentle itinerant preacher but a powerful general and monarch. Under his reign Israel will be established in all the lands promised to Abraham and his descendants. Israel will exist as the Theocratic Kingdom of HaShem. This is biblical, prophetic meaning of the term Moshiach and is the central role of Shiloh, to sit as king upon the throne of David at Jerusalem.
There will also be Gentile countries during the Millennial Kingdom period. These will be semi-independent lands that will voluntary submit to the overlordship of HaShem and His Moshiach. Of these nations we read:Zechariah 8:1 The word of Yahweh of Armies came to me. 8:2 Thus says Yahweh of Armies: "I am jealous for Zion with great jealousy, and I am jealous for her with great wrath."
8:3 Thus says Yahweh: "I have returned to Zion, and will dwell in the midst of Jerusalem. Jerusalem shall be called 'The City of Truth;' and the mountain of Yahweh of Armies, 'The Holy Mountain....'
8:22 Yes, many peoples and strong nations will come to seek Yahweh of Armies in Jerusalem, and to entreat the favor of Yahweh." 8:23 Thus says Yahweh of Armies: "In those days, ten men will take hold, out of all the languages of the nations, they will take hold of the skirt of him who is a Jew, saying, 'We will go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.'"12:5b Her child was caught up to God, and to his throne. 12:6 The woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that there they may nourish her one thousand two hundred sixty days.
This verse interprets itself thankfully. Those who believe Jesus is the child here have only to look at the next verse.
The governance of the Kingdom will be taken up by Moshiach and people Israel will be removed to a safe place.
Master Y'shua clarifies this even more in his great prophecy:Matthew 24:15 "When, therefore, you see the abomination of desolation, which was spoken of through Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (let the reader understand), 24:16 then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.
24:17 Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take out things that are in his house. 24:18 Let him who is in the field not return back to get his clothes. 24:19 But woe to those who are with child and to nursing mothers in those days! 24:20 Pray that your flight will not be in the winter, nor on a Sabbath, 24:21 for then there will be great oppression, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, nor ever will be.
24:22 Unless those days should be shortened, no flesh would survive. But for the sake of the Elect [the chosen ones], those days will be shortened.
24:23 "Then if any man tells you, 'Behold, here is the Anointed,' or, 'There,' don't believe it.
Note the direct connection between the Abomination of Desolation at the proclamation that Rex Mundi is God incarnate (verse 23). The Abomination will include the placing of his idol in the Holy of Holies, the declaration of world peace, the declaration of his divinity and, according to tradition, the sacrificing of a sow in the holy place.
In the "Middle of the Week" when Rex Mundi commits the Abomination of Desolation spoken of previously, the Master urges those Jews living in Jerusalem to immediately flee the city for the hills!
Those who are wise, even as the abomination is being committed, will flee to Petra where HaShem has promised to protect his people for the duration of the Great Tribulation, the final one thousand, two hundred and sixty days or forty-two months.Isaiah 42:11 Let the wilderness and its cities raise their voices,
with the villages that Kedar inhabits.
Let the inhabitants of Petra [Sela] sing.
Let them shout from the top of the mountains!
42:12 Let them give glory to Yahweh,
and declare his praise in the islands.
42:13 Yahweh will go out like a mighty man.
He will stir up zeal like a man of war.
He will raise a war cry.
Yes, he will shout aloud.
He will triumph over his enemies.
As Moshiach opens the Seven Sealed Scrolls his armies will begin their attacks and counterattacks:12:7 There was war in the celestial realms [ouranos]. Michael and his angels made war on the dragon. The dragon and his angels made war.
As we saw in the first chapter of Job all angels, both righteous and unrighteous, those loyal to HaShem and those disloyal, have access to the Throne Room and Courts of HaShem. From there these beings go forth throughout the created realms. Now however, as Moshiach opens the first of the Seven Sealed Scrolls the celestial realms break into open warfare: a struggle beyond our limited comprehension. This seven year war will begin with the opening of the First Sealed Scroll.12:8 They didn't prevail, neither was a place found for him any more in heaven [ouranos].
The KJV, the ASV and others translate ouranos as "heaven" in both 12:7 and 12:8. The WEB and others have it as "sky." Strong's Dictionary tells us this about the word:
the vaulted expanse of the sky with all things visible in it
the universe, the world
the aerial heavens or sky, the region where the clouds and the tempests gather, and where thunder and lightning are produced
the sidereal or starry heavens
the region above the sidereal heavens, the seat of order of things eternal and consummately perfect where God dwells and other heavenly beings.
I use "celestial realms" in 12:7 because this battle will take place in all realms, especially the celestial ones in this context, but "Heaven" in 12:8 because the meaning is that the demons (fallen angles) will be expelled from the presence of HaShem (in Heaven) even though, given their nature, they will still dwell in the celestial or spirit realms.12:9 The great dragon was thrown down, the old serpent, he who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world. He was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.
Once the First Sealed Scroll is opened the Seven Year War begins. Three and a half years into it Heaven will be cleansed of the Rebellion. At that point Lucifer will completely possess and re-animate the dead body of Rex Mundi. Other demons will possess others. As we will discuss when we come to the Mark of the Beast, all those accept the Mark will be possessed by these demons. During the Great Tribulation (the second three and half years) all those who have not been sealed by HaShem will be possessed by demons.12:10 I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, "Now the salvation, the power, and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Anointed has come; for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them before our God day and night.
This accusation is two-fold. From what we are told, Lucifer rebelled again HaShem prior to the beginning of the age, which is to say, prior to the establishment of the Garden of Eden. Lucifer challenged HaShem's rightful rule first among the denizens of the Ouranos, the celestial realms of Heaven, and then, as recorded in the oldest book of the Bible, the Book of Job, he extended his accusation to include humanity. Human history has been the settlement of these accusations. Now in Ouranos (Heaven) the matter has been decided and Lucifer and his minions have been exiled. On Earth Moshiach will be leading the forces seeking to unite our planet with Heaven under the banner of HaShem.12:11 They overcame him because of the Lamb's blood, and because of the word of their testimony. They didn't love their life, even to death.
The King James has this important verse this way:12:11 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.
As with identifying the "child" in this chapter, there is an understandable tendency to interpret this as the blood of Y'shua, shed at his execution. However read this verse carefully and without assumption:
They (plural) overcame him (Lucifer) because of or by the Lamb's blood, and because of the word of their testimony. They didn't love their life, even to death.
As before, to help with translations words are added to texts to tie clauses together. The words in brackets do not appear in the actual text:
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.
Read without the added words, commas etc. the text reads:
And they overcame him by blood Lamb and by word of their testimony and loved not their lives unto death.
Who are these people? The context of this chapter is Israel. The woman Israel is giving birth to the Kingdom. Lucifer seeks to thwart the Kingdom. We see this attempt already in play with the current "Two State Solution" and so on. Rex Mundi will deceive the Jews and have his peace plan signed by them and so on. According to the text the weapon that defeats Rex Mundi is the lamb-blood of the martyrs. Since the beginning the Jewish people have been sacrificed for others. During these seven years huge numbers of Jews (and Gentiles) will be martyred. This is the meaning in context.
Recall that the challenge is that people will not chose to submit to HaShem if there is not a pay-off. That they would rather submit to Lucifer's system. As we saw earlier, the Jews are "HaShem's lot," His percentage of the population. The Jews were joined, under Y'shua the Anointed, by great multitudes of Gentiles and all of these are now willingly surrendering their lives with no visible pay-off rather than submit to Lucifer and his Novus Ordo Seclorum. This devotion to HaShem wields power in this now ending court case. The Blood of the Martyrs is a powerful thing!
As I explain in detail in my study on Isaiah 52, the Suffering Servant of HaShem is the Jewish people. As grafted-on branches to the Tree of Israel during the upcoming Pograms their death will be added to by those of the christianos, those Anointed Noahide Nazarenes.
Of the Jews as the Suffering Servants we read:Isaiah 52:1 Awake, awake, put on your strength, Zion; put on your beautiful garments, Jerusalem, the holy city: for henceforth there shall no more come into you the uncircumcised and the unclean. 52:2 Shake yourself from the dust! Arise, sit up, Jerusalem! Release yourself from the bonds of your neck, captive daughter of Zion! 52:3 For thus says Yahweh, "You were sold for nothing; and you shall be redeemed without money."
52:4 For thus says the Lord Yahweh, "My people went down at the first into Egypt to live there: and the Assyrian has oppressed them without cause.
52:5 "Now therefore, what do I do here," says Yahweh, "seeing that my people are taken away for nothing? Those who rule over them mock," says Yahweh, "and my name continually all the day is blasphemed. 52:6 Therefore my people shall know my name. Therefore they shall know in that day that I am he who speaks; behold, it is I..."
52:13 Behold, my servant [still the Jews] shall deal wisely, he shall be exalted and lifted up, and shall be very high.
52:14 Like as many were astonished at you (his appearance was marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men),
52:15 so shall he sprinkle many nations; kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they understand....
53:3 He was despised, and rejected by men; a man of suffering, and acquainted with disease. He was despised as one from whom men hide their face; and we didn't respect him.
53:4 Surely he has borne our sickness, and carried our suffering; yet we considered him plagued, struck by God, and afflicted....
53:10 Yet it pleased Yahweh to bruise him. He has caused him to suffer. When you make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed. He shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of Yahweh shall prosper in his hand.
53:11 After the suffering of his soul, he will see the light and be satisfied. My righteous servant will justify many by the knowledge of himself; and he will bear their iniquities.
53:12 Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he poured out his soul to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
Many Nicene Christians believe this is a prophecy of Y'shua however the context is clear. "My people went down at the first into Egypt..." They did not undergo all the pain and humiliation for nothing! By their sufferings and through their experiences HaShem was busy preparing His inheritance.
As we read:Genesis 12:1 Now Yahweh said to Abram, "Get out of your country, and from your relatives, and from your father's house, to the land that I will show you. 12:2 I will make of you a great nation. I will bless you and make your name great. You will be a blessing. 12:3 I will bless those who bless you, and I will curse him who curses you. All of the families of the earth will be blessed in you."
"All of the families of the earth will be blessed [by the Jews]." This is the point of this section of Isaiah quoted above and this is the point of these verses in our Revelation study under consideration. The suffering of the Jews have now "paid off." As Master Y'shua said, "For the Elect's sake" the Great Tribulation is going to be shortened by the coming of Moshiach for the Jews (Matt. 24:22).12:12 Therefore rejoice, heavens, and you who dwell in them. Woe to the earth and to the sea, because the devil has gone down to you, having great wrath, knowing that he has but a short time."
Just under three and a half years to be precise.
Lucifer must believe he has a chance at winning, certainly his human followers do! He will be furious at losing the celestial regions and thus his anger will burn white hot as he enters the Rex Mundi and begins his last ditch effort at victory!12:13 When the dragon saw that he was thrown down to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 12:14 Two wings of the great eagle were given to the woman, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, so that she might be nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
This "time and times and half a time" is again speaking of the final three and a half years.
That we are again referencing the woman (Israel) adds support to the interpretations shared above.
Rex Mundi will commit the Abomination of Desolation and be slain. Lucifer himself, having been exiled to the Earth as discussed above, will then reanimate and possess his corpse and focus the brunt of his anger on the Jews. He will probably do this for the following reasons. His assassin will probably be one of his former Jewish followers who, witnessing the Abomination in the Temple, will realize that he and his people were deceived. That will drive him to strike out in anger. In part the Beast will probably go after the Jews because they worship the One True God and obey the orders of His Moshiach and that causes him jealous rage. And doubtless these pograms will happen in part because, as Y'shua makes clear, Moshiach is specifically fighting to save the Jews (Matt. 24:22). If Rex Mundi can genocide the last of the Jews he will win! The Jews are the key to everything!
As the Abomination of Desolation is committed and in the hours and days following it, Jews around the world, but especially in Israel, will be frantically looking for hiding places or joining with the various opposition forces.
It appears that HaShem will grant protection to His people as they flee to Petra in Jordanian controlled Eretz Israel (Matt. 24:15-23).12:15 The serpent spewed water out of his mouth after the woman like a river, that he might cause her to be carried away by the stream. 12:16 The earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed up the river which the dragon spewed out of his mouth.
During this great escape to Petra Rex Mundi will do whatever he can to capture the fleeing Jews. This may include soldiers, tanks, aircraft, bombs etc. Because Rex Mundi is now Lucifer Incarnate he may literally cause massive waves to flow across the desert (in mockery perhaps of HaShem's parting of the Red Sea when Lucifer sought to murder the Hebrews with the forces of Egypt. What is certain is that HaShem will defend His people so they can reach the Haven He has for them to live in for the final three and half years.12:17 The dragon grew angry with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep God's commandments and hold Y'shua's testimony.
Unable to murder these Jews the Global New World Order government will begin hunting and slaughtering Jews and their supporters.
Here ends chapter twelve.
