The Woman and Dragon Floods, Revelation 12

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.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.” 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.
Then war broke out in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth,and his angels with him.
10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say:
“Now have come the salvation and the power
    and the kingdom of our God,
    and the authority of his Messiah.

For the accuser of our brothers and sisters,
    who accuses them before our God day and night,
    has been hurled down.
11 They triumphed over him
    by the blood of the Lamb
    and by the word of their testimony;
they did not love their lives so much
    as to shrink from death.
12 Therefore rejoice, you heavens
    and you who dwell in them!
But woe to the earth and the sea,
    because the devil has gone down to you!
He is filled with fury,
    because he knows that his time is short.”
13 When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child. 1The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach. 15 Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. 16 But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth. 17 Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

Revelation 12 is written...everything for a reason.

When Jesus visited a small boy of 4 years old in 2013, he introduced a lady who was with him as Mary his wife. He was holding a baby girl in his hands.The child said he thought Mary was holding a baby too...Now there is something else.

In Picadilly Gardens in Manchester in 2014 I discovered a statue directly behind the statue of Queen Victoria - both with pale blue mosaic tiles...A woman is standing with two babies - one appears to be larger than the other. (My Greek grandmother gave birth to twins 5 weeks apart and the little boy named Dimitris died - his twin sister, my mother's younger sister lived. So I know this is possible).

Who is the woman in the motherhood role? A woman dressed in a way as if she was walking in the times of Jesus and his ministry...Is this the same? Two babies one larger than the other.
The mosaic being a reminder of Moses who was a Levite!

Often I wondered if Queen Victoria's small crown was for a baby...the discovery of this and the above scripture does make this quite possible. 

So many secrets and the preservation of truth is masked. 

What is truth is not the focus of that which is being used against us - but in seeking the truth and in obedience to God 'in context' so that we can be free from the evil one.

Moses was chosen by God to be the leader of the Israelites - the people from out of Egypt and taken to the new land. His older brother Aaron was a Prophet and sister too. The older brother and sister had their own unique roles but with the scripture above, we can consider this baby....

Jesus has shown a prophesy with a baby girl being born. To the child he introduced 'Mary - his wife.'. Who are we to argue when we do not really understand? We are meant to learn to trust God.  
Peace be with you
