    What is the meaning of Revelation 12:1-6?

    The Book of The Revelation is NOT about the future. It is about The Revelation of Jesus Christ. This takes place in the past, present and future. It is a summary of the whole Bible in one Book.

    Revelation 12 (NIV)

    The Woman and the Dragon

    “ 12 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. 2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. 3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days. “

    This sign appeared in heaven long ago. God used the stars and planets to make the sign.

    The woman is the people of God that Jesus is descended from. She is clothed with the Sun. The sun is a type of Jesus who is the Light of the world. Many of these people are from the nation of Israel but many are not and grafted in. She wears a crown of 12 stars on her head which are the 12 tribes of Israel. There are other even more important meanings of these 12 stars but space will not allow that explanation here. When the women gives birth Satan will try to kill the child, but fail. Satan used Herod to try to kill Jesus as a baby. Satan convinced a third of the angels to join his rebellion and they lost their place in heaven along with Satan.

    The male child is Jesus and He “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” when He returns.
