Revelation 12 God cares

Revelation 12 God cares

Continuing with our study of Revelation 12.

Revelation 12:6  The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1260 days.

This is a beautiful verse that perfectly expresses God’s unfailing love and compassion for His beloved children. 

Jesus has warned those in Judea to flee to the mountains in haste when the end-time beast is revealed.

Matthew 24:15  ‘So when you see standing in the holy place the abomination that causes desolation, spoken of through the prophet Daniel – let the reader understand – then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains.’ 

There is an imperative on those who understand these verses to explain them, in these days and when the time comes. 

Many Jewish people will flee in haste to the wild lands and God will care for them, as He cared for them during their passage in the first exodus. We shall explore this further when we come across verse 14 of this chapter.

The time period of 1260 days is our old friend of time, times and half a time, or three-and-a-half years or 42 months that we find described in so many places.

It describes the second half of the seven years of tribulation when the end-time beast strikes out in crazed anger. 

Daniel 9:27a  ‘In the middle of the ‘seven’ he will put an end to sacrifice and offering.’

Revelation 11:2a  ‘They will trample on the holy city for 42 months.’

Daniel 12:7a  ‘It will be for a time, times and half a time.’

This specific time period is…too specific…. to be spiritualised away. I resolutely avoid the rabbit hole of numerology but God seems to have firmly placed this mathematical expression into the scriptures for a definite purpose. 

God cares for His people. 

Thank you for reading this:

  • Revelation 16:1 Painful Sores
    And so we enter into a grim and melancholy chapter. There is little cheer to be found here. Those who have taken the mark of the beast, hoping to find some form of reward or relief, and having surrendered their soul to the worship of the beast in some shape or form, now find themselves reaping a bitter harvest of ugly and painful sores. 
  • Revelation 15:8 Holiness
    Please click image and scroll down to see full picture. Once again, these precious verses remind us that God moves in heavenly righteousness. The seven angels are dressed in robes of perfect holiness and they carry the seven plagues that will purge and cleanse this corrupted world. The temple is filled with the glory of God as He brings perfect holiness and righteousness to bear down on this earth. 
  • Revelation 15:3 A Deeper Understanding
    Please click image to reaf full post and scroll down. If you struggle with the horror of Revelation then you are certainly not alone. The absolute horror reflects the weight of sin that has corrupted man to the core.  But as we embrace these sacred truths, they will bring us deeper, far deeper than ever before, into an understanding of the heart, into an understanding of the perfect holiness of God. 
  • Revelation 15:3 Moses and Jesus
    Please tap image to see full post The mention of both Moses and Jesus the Lamb in the same sentence strengthens the idea that Jesus will be the perfect Moses, who will deliver Israel, imprisoned or exiled by the antichrist and lead them victoriously back to Jerusalem. 
  • Revelation 15:1 Glass and Fire
    The bitterness of martyrdom gives way to eternal celebration. Their victory has always been dependent upon the strength that God provides and this is reflected in the harps given to them by God.  And what a glorious celebration. The enemy has been defeated and the bowls of wrath will bring this evil age to a conclusion. The joy of eternity awaits!
