I have said in the last post that I am persuaded that we are living in the times of the Man Child. Today, what I want to do is point us to the signs of the times we live in.
The Book of Revelation tells us that two signs appeared in heaven before the Man Child was born. One of a woman and another of a dragon (Revelation 12:1-3). When a sign is said to be seen in the heavens, it is indicative of a wide spread sign which is evident to all. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the sign is understood by all who see or know of the sign, it simply means that it is visible to all.
After the outcome of the U.S. elections, many were startled. Most of those who wanted Hillary to win were outraged at the results while many of those who supported Trump were surprised that he won. Either way, no one saw it coming. In light of this unexpected outcome, a brother and friend in church began to wonder why we (as believers) didn’t see this coming, why we couldn’t read the ‘hand writing on the wall’. He told me that the shocking outcome of the U.S elections led him back to these words of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times. Matthew 16:3b
In our last post we spoke on the significance of the Man Child, today, what I want to do is show us what we need to do to transit from ‘The Woman’ (of Revelation Chapter 12) to the Man Child. To do this I have to expound on the significance of the attire of the Woman – the ‘sun, moon and 12 stars’.
Clothed with the Sun.
Like we said before, the Sun is the glory of the Father, each time the Woman surfaced on the earth, she was clothed with the glory of the Father. In Israel before Moses was born, it was the Blessings of Jacob upon his twelve sons, in Mary, it was the Power of the Holy Spirit that overshadowed her. Therefore, it is of uttermost importance that this generation be clothed with the glory of the Father if we must take the leap from being the Woman to being the Man Child.
Across the nations of the earth, God’s servants have been shown visions and given prophetic words about a great and powerful move of the Spirit that will transcend anything we have ever seen or heard before. They have all called this movement by different names raging from; the saint movement, to dove movement, and even the last and final reformation of the church. I, on the other hand have decided to call this movement ‘the Man Child’. All of them are correct, however, the Man Child differs in one respect, it captures the Big Picture of this move of God while all others spoken by these prophets reveal only aspects of the Man Child.
We continue to explore the prophetic message revealed in the Woman and her offspring from our last twoposts.
If you have read the previous articles, then the identity of the Woman is quite clear by now – she is any generation of God’s people that is pregnant with a ‘Man Child’. When such a generation faces tribulation which the scriptures call ‘birth pangs’ – Mark 13:8 – then it is time to bring forth the Man Child. But only a generation who knows the worth and significance of the Man Child will be willing to endure such tribulation.
This post continues the flow of thoughts shared in The Untold Story Of Christmas. Today I want us to take a much deeper look at the woman that was clothed in the sun, moon and stars and the significance of the Man Child. (See Revelation 12)
