Revelation 12 Signs in the Sky 2017

Revelation 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.She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 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. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.”[a] And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.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.

Revelation 12 speaks of a woman in labor who gives birth to a child. The Dragon tries to snatch the child, but the child is 'caught up' before he is able to do so. Then the woman flees for a time. Many refer to this as the birth of the Christ Child, which it does mention though it happened 2000 years ago, but the Scripture also puts this near the time of the Tribulation, the coming of the Kingdom, etc.

The woman is Israel and the Child is the Messiah. However, if you read further, the dragon goes after the rest of the woman's offspring, and since the woman is supernaturally protected, I believe this is the church.

Those of you who have taken my bible studies are aware of the Mazaroth, which is the story God put in the sky by way of reminder, to show us the way to salvation and future events. Unfortunately, over the years these signs were 'changed' into what we know today as the Zodiac, but that was never what it was intended to be. What God has given us for good, Satan will try to confuse, and in this case he has turned it into a form of soothsaying and predictions. 

What's super interesting, and the point of this post, is that the event described in Revelation may have a possible fulfillment in the sky today!  It started August 2016, then on November 20, 2016 Jupiter (also known as the king star), entered the side or border of the constellation of Virgo. It will stay within her 'womb' for 42 weeks (equal to a long term gestation), and will move out between her 'legs'  on September 23, 2017.

Some believe this will be the beginning of some major events. The reason is because so much of this happens on Jewish Feast Days. They believe it is the start of the Tribulation or the time of the Rapture. The Bible says that this sign is a warning of future events of ominous significance. I don't know if anything will happen this September, or whether that is for a future date, but I do think it's an interesting occurrence. What do you think?
