It never fails to thrill me that the Messianic vision and mission contains a solid feminine component. All the testosterone and male dominance of the past is in serious conflict with the majesty of Christ’s mother, and sun and moon are seen in surprising clarity, with no room for darkness.
A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars;Revelation of John 12:1
The appearance of signs on heaven (Rev. 12:1, 3 and 15:1) bring us to contemplate the incarnation, the career of the devil, and the last plagues. The first sign is explicitly named great. The signs appearing 13:3 and 15:1 are labeled “other” (αλλο) but are of the same kind, namely, great.
The moon in this vista is certainly not providing light and it must be clear that to a woman clothed with the sun and crowned with twelve stars the moon’s light is inconsequential, even as its effect on earth’s waters continues. A light source “under foot” is not going to be helpful for the travelers. In Yeshua’s doctrine, a lamp under a container is useless (Luke 8:16).
If we do not care for s-turns and or u-turns then the unveiling of heaven’s best is sliding right by us. The fact that Christ did not come to destroy anyone’s tradition does not mean that everything continues as usual. He could only be successful by introducing change. Here the moon is under foot but is a great light in Genesis. It is shortsighted to think that Christ changes nothing, or that moonlight is of any relevance when one is clothed with the sun and one’s head is crowned with a dozen stars.
Children like the mother
Here the lamp is atop a woman. In addition, her head is host of twelve stars (suns). You have to be seriously disturbed to have a source of information that raises questions about what Christ has done. There is no theory about priesthood, royalty or messenger that is in this ballpark. The amount of light in this revelation extends to the CHILD and the children. There is a blinding array of light in the mother of the Lord Yeshua that makes the devil and his tide of lies masked by a disgraceful “moon for our day” offer.
Many Christians have committed themselves to proud and suicidal theories. They invent prophetic authority when it is clear that CHRIST closed the shop with John the Baptist. They follow the patterns of an irrelevant, discriminatory and proud priesthood hoping to find divine righteousness when only the donkey riding king has salvation according to Zechariah 9:9.
Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion! Shout in triumph, O daughter of Jerusalem! Behold, your king is coming to you; He is just and endowed with salvation, Humble, and mounted on a donkey, Even on a colt, the foal of a donkey.
