The prophetic words of Revelation are all spiritual, and to try and understand it physically, will lead to false hope and a real disappointment. The mark of the beast is a spiritual mark and sign, the antichrist is a spiritual leader, an evil spirit, but he or she will not be a political person. Not only is Revelation a spiritual prophetic message, but most of scripture is also spiritual as well. The Son who is is born in Revelation 12:5 is none other than the promise Messiah Son of God, who most of Old Testament who will be King and rule all nations. Before Jesus was born, many Jewish people had a strong faith in a false prophecy, and it was so strong they reject the Messiah, even after He fulfilled all the prophesy predicted about His birth, life, death, and resurrection. Israel was always meant to be spiritual and the physical land of Israel was and is never going to be permanent. After Adam and Eve sinned, God knew He would have to destroy this whole world, which means the ph, physical land of Isreal, for whole new earth that has no evidence of sin. The physical-mind people of Israel, made the land they live on, the central of their universe and they made the Lord God, only their God, and Maker. The Jews totally trusted 100% the Messiah was going to from King David, but they didn’t think of the King of Kings would be born in a manger, cause to their mindset, the Messiah should be been born a royal palace. The physical Jews, were comfortable in the world of sin they live in, but hated oppression from the Roman empire, and had already been in power a long time before Jesus’ birth. So they trust a false prophecy, the coming Messiah would destroy Rome, take His place in the temple built at the time, and make Israel the greatest kingdom on earth and Jesus would allow life to continue as it had. The hope was so strong in the false prophecy, even after seeing Jesus die and rise from the dead and walk around in His physical body, they ask Him before He was about to ascend into heaven, why are you leaving, Israel hasn’t restored yet, but Jesus had to tell them, all the world needs Jesus, the King of Kings.
Acts 1:6 So when they had come together, they asked Him repeatedly, “Lord, are You at this time reestablishing the kingdom and restoring it to Israel?” 7 He said to them, “It is not for you to know the times or epochs which the Father has fixed by His own authority. 8 But you will receive power and ability when the Holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be My witnesses [to tell people about Me] both in Jerusalem and in all Judea, and Samaria, and even to the ends of the earth.”
Many people are still listening and believing false prophesy like surely the Lord will save the Jewish people cause they are His chosen people. If they read God’s word mostly the book of Acts and letters of Paul many Jewish accepted Jesus as the Messiah, so does the Holy word of God, answer the, is a true Jew, or even a true Christian, is the Lord only God and king of one group of people?
Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. 29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
After final judgment, the Lord Jesus will become King of glory, not just of the Jews or Israel, but King of all Creation and the universe is He your King now and will be King for all eternity? Don’t trust false prophecy, if the holy word of God doesn’t say it clear enough then it must be a falsehood. God bless you all, Jesus the King of Kings loves you and so do I, Samuel H.
Isaiah 9:6 For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us, And the government will rest on His shoulders; And His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace. 7 There will be no end to the increase of His government or peace On the throne of David and over his kingdom, To establish it and to uphold it with justice and righteousness From then on and forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of armies will accomplish this.
