5)  Explanation of the GREAT SIGN


But what the GREAT SIGN of Revelation 12-1 is supposed to show us. It triggers, starts what event?

Answer: The second coming of Jesus Christ on earth, which will be done in 3 stages:


- 1 Christ comes invisibly on the clouds of heaven for the rapture of the Church and the coming of the Kingdom of GOD and the authority of his CHRIST.

The dead in Christ first come alive, then the Christians living in this expectation are transformed (their mortal bodies take on immortality in the twinkling of an eye) and then they are taken with them to meet their Lord in heaven. But what will be “visible” then are the disappearances of millions of people on the surface of the globe who will have one thing in common: their real, living faith in the Lord Jesus, who died for their sins and is resurrected for their justification. Humble people who acknowledge that they have passed the judgment of God and found themselves guilty and sincerely repented and then lived a holy life, for the Word of God declares: Without sanctification, no one will see the Lord - Hebrews 12-14. They believed it was possible to live whithout fail by the grace of God, as Jesus had said to the adulteress: "Go and sin no more" - John 8-11.

  • Young children too will be raptured; The babies to be born, always in the maternal womb, will also be taken away, for only God takes perfect care. (Chap 62)  Isaiah 7 - 15 ... Until he knows how to reject evil and choose good.

Jesus said: Leave the little children, and do not prevent them from coming to me; For the kingdom of heaven is for those who are like them Matthew 19-14, 18-3. These little children already believe in their hearts and confess from their earliest years their belonging to the Heavenly Father. Are not their first words: ABA, ABABA ... (ABBA, Father according to Romans 8 - 15), this is verifiable in so many languages, their heart is turned towards their Creator and is full of gratitude towards him. They fulfill the two essential conditions for salvation, according to Romans 10 - 9: If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. They only desire to come to their Creator but quickly they are often prevented by their loved ones. It will not be so in the end when Jesus gets up. The Kingdom of Heaven also belongs to these little children. Jesus took them up in His arms. Mark 10-16.

Jesus said, "If anyone offends any of these little ones, it would be better for him ..." what? "Let a millstone hang around his neck and drown in the sea. Jesus said that if anyone offended one of MY little ones." Matthew 18-2/14 We think he owns them. We think they belong to him, so we think they will participate in the rapture.

The Will of the Heavenly Father: No humble little child will be lost Matthew 18-14

Isaiah 40-10 Behold, the Lord Yahweh will come as a mighty one, and his arm will rule for him. Behold, his reward is with him, and his recompense before him. 11 He will feed his flock like a shepherd. He will gather the lambs in his arm, and carry them in his bosom. He will gently lead those who have their young.


The Lord Jesus prophesies that there will be children during the tribulation period. He predicts the following: "And woe to those who are pregnant and those who are breastfeeding in those days!" Matthew 24-19. Notice carefully. Jesus makes a special "misfortune" for the parents of children at the time of tribulation. But, the Lord specifically gives two children ages, here:

1) breastfeeding children, and

2) children still in the womb.

There is absolutely no mention of older children. These children will be those born after the rapture. And, there will undoubtedly be millions and millions of newborns. Without doubt, most of these little ones will perish in the horrors of that time. A very large part of humanity will die during this period.


From the womb I was in your custody, from the belly of my mother you were my God. Psalm 22-10 (Words spoken by a sinner.)

The death of Christ is presented as sufficient for the whole of humanity. First, John 2-2 says that Jesus is "the atoning sacrifice for our sins, not only for us, but for the sins of the whole world". This verse clearly indicates that Jesus' death was sufficient for all sins, not just for sins. from those who have specifically come to him with faith. The fact that Christ's death is sufficient for all sin would allow God to apply this payment to those who have never been able to believe.

Thirteen is the most common age suggested for age of responsibility, based on the Jewish custom that a child becomes an adult by the age of 13. However, the Bible does not provide any direct support at the age of 13, as the age of responsibility. It probably varies from one child to another.

The only passage that speaks of the salvation of a child more than any other is 2 Samuel 12-22 When the child was still alive, I fasted and wept, for I said, Who knows if the Lord will not have mercy on him? me and if the child will not live? 23 Now that he is dead, why should I fast? Can I bring him back? I will go to him, but he will not come-back to me. David said he could go to the child but could not bring him back to him. Also, and just as important, David seemed to be comforted by this knowledge. In other words, David seemed to say that he would see his little child (in heaven), although he could not bring him back.



How much the disappearance of these beloved little ones in their respective families will affect the whole of humanity. This will surely be the spark that will trigger hatred and great persecution against Christians who will not have participated in the rapture and who will have repented after the recognition of their lukewarmness in faith and of the righteousness of God about them according to Matthew 24-9: Then they will deliver you up to oppression, and will kill you. You will be hated by all of the nations for my name's sake. How to envisage such a hatred against… Christians in the present Christian nations ; but circonstances will be completely changed after the disappearance of the true Beloved Church and after the chaos which will ensue.



Disappearance of 500 million to much more than 2 billions people in the world. (Chapter 26 - Appendix 9) 


  • As Jesus spoke to the leader of the Jews, Nicodemus, of the obligation of the birth of water and the Spirit to enter the Kingdom of God, He asks us to believe in His words, as well when He speaks of earthly things as of heavenly things. John 3-5 and 12.
  • All must believe and be baptized to be saved according to Mark 16-16, so God baptized all the believers of the old covenant according to 1 Corinthians 10-2 and the water ascended in time to Adam according to Joshua 3 -16
  • In the same way, through this GREAT SIGN God shows us the final completion of the birth by the Spirit of all believers, in an instant, in a twinkling of an eye, the moment when the mortal body has put on immortality.

Psalm 87-5 Yes, of Zion it will be said, "This one and that one was born in her;" the Most High himself will establish her. 6 Yahweh will count, when he writes up the peoples, "This one was born there."

1 Corinthians 15-51 Behold, I tell you a mystery. We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised incorruptible, and we will be changed. 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. 54 But when this corruptible will have put on incorruption, and this mortal will have put on immortality, then what is written will happen: "Death is swallowed up in victory." 55 "Death, where is your sting? Hades, where is your victory?" 56 The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. 57 But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

1 Thessalonicians 4-15 For this we tell you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive, who are left to the coming of the Lord, will in no way precede those who have fallen asleep.16 For the Lord himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with God's trumpet. The dead in Christ will rise first, 17 then we who are alive, who are left, will be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air. So, we will be with the Lord forever.

1 Thessalonicians 5 - 23 May the God of peace himself sanctify you completely. May your whole spirit, soul, and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. 24 He who calls you is faithful, who will also do it.

Revelation 12 - 5  She gave birth to a son, a male child, who is to rule all the nations with a rod of iron. Her child was caught up to God, and to his throne. 17  The dragon grew angry with the woman, and went away to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep God's commandments and hold Jesus' testimony.


a) Notes on Characters: Attention, the woman in heaven is not Mary, any biblical interpretation must agree with all the texts. If Mary did indeed bring Jesus the son of man as He loved to be called Himself and if Jesus lived on earth, coming precisely to Bethlehem as a man, the Woman who gives birth and who has a posterity that will pass through the great tribulation (Rev. 12: 17) it is the body of believers that is symbolized here by a woman who gives birth. She will give birth here to a spiritual being with a spiritual body that will enter heaven.

- The Mysterious Woman thus represents the reign of God appeared in the form of the faithful Israel, then of the Church faithful to God. The Bible calls this woman: Zion, and says of her: All are born in her (Psalm 87-4 / 6); All true believers were born in her, and the children specificaly nammed by God in this Psalm are the old Israel’s ennemies – Egypt, Babylon, Philistia, Tyre - which were given bearth in pain.

Has not Daniel given birth to Nebuchadnezzar, who then has made proclain his faith throughout his kingdom (Daniel 4-1/3)

Has not Joseph glorified His God in front of Pharao and has not all Egypt been saved of an undeniable death ? He was a such man capable to accompanied a spiritual revival among this people saved from a true death…

Zion, who will have been faithful on earth, will form the Jerusalem of above who is our mother. (Galatians 4-26) See Appendix 15-1

Jesus came into a family that believed and waited for His Messiah. Jesus said: I am the good shepherd, you are my sheep. (No, you are my ram, for a ram does not give birth, only a sheep bears / breeds.)

  • The Son who is born and must reign over the nations represents CHRIST, the mystery of God (Colossians 2-2) whose head is Jesus and whose body is His Church (Ephesians 1-23). Together they will rule over the nations according to Revelation 2-26 and 12-5.

It is remarkable to see how God has positioned the stars of this constellation with a folded leg to show the most important time that will mark this constellation: The birth of the Great Mystery of God, who is CHRIST. In the eyes of God who wraps Himself in light according to Psalm 104-2, this Perfect Woman in beauty according to Psalm 50-2, will also be worthy to be clothed with light according to Revelation 12-1 because she will have perfectly fulfilled her work, which is to put his faith in his Messiah, the One who was given by the Almighty God for the salvation of all and the restoration of all things according to Acts 3-21.


b) The masterpiece of God is to have transformed a People at His own Image.

God has become in This People, in This Women in CHRIST, The One He really is.

    • The Sun, God clothes Her by His Glory,
    • The Moon, The Holy Spirit enlights her paths in this darken world,
    • The 12 Stars, Her Children, Her Glory are at the right number for the rapture, Proverbs 17-6
    • Each of Her deliveries has been a fight and has been in pain, this delivery is the most important because he is the final completion of the birth by the Spirit of all believers, in an instant, in a twinkling of an eye, the moment when the mortal body has put on immortality ; but this will not be the last delivery, This Beautiful Women will have again a great offspring which is to come. (Rev. 7-14 et 12-17)


- 2 Then Christ comes visibly to destroy the antichrist after 7 years in heaven preparing for the marriage of the Lamb of God with his wife the faithful Church and moments of gifts to His faithful servants - which correspond to the 7 years of the reign of Antichrist on the earth 2 x 3 years ½ (Daniel 9-27):

    • 3 ½ years of seduction by the anti-Christ and institution of a world peace with the restoration in Jerusalem then the stop of the rites of the Jewish temple, followed by
    • 3 ½ years of bloody persecution by the anti-christ, against Christians converted after the rapture and against the Jews who will be greatly offended by this man (the anti-Christ) proclaiming himself as God in the temple (Daniel 11-31 et 12-11; 2 Thessalonicians 2-4).
    • The manifestation of the anti-christ can only take place when the One who holds it has disappeared: The whole of faithful Christians called the Body of Christ. 2 Thessalonicians 2 – 6/7. And now you know what is restraining him now so that he may be revealed in his own time. 7 For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work ; only He who now restrains it will do so until He is taken out of the way (See chronology in Chapter 50) . When the Church is raptured with the multitude of risen saints, the angels will also leave the earth (as they left Egypt during the exodus of the people of Israel - Exodus 12-41 It happened at the end of four hundred thirty years, even the same day it happened, that all the armies of Yahweh went out from the land of Egypt.) and together they will enter heaven where there will be a war between the angels and demons that will be thrown on earth for a brief moment of diabolical reign that God will quickly chastise with violent plagues and the authority of his CHRIST.

2 Thessalonicians 2 - 4  He who opposes and exalts himself against all that is called God or that is worshiped; so that he sits as God in the temple of God, setting himself up as God.

Christ comes to deliver His people Israel from all the foreign armies that come to fight him in Jerusalem. His feet then rest on the Mount of Olives and Christ the Messiah annihilated all their enemies ... Let the Prophet Zechariah speak:

Zechariah 12 - 2  "Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of reeling to all the surrounding peoples, and on Judah also will it be in the siege against Jerusalem. 3 It will happen in that day, that I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all the peoples. All who burden themselves with it will be severely wounded, and all the nations of the earth will be gathered together against it.

Zechariah 14 - 3  Then Yahweh will go out and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. 4 His feet will stand in that day on the Mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east; and the Mount of Olives will be split in two, from east to west, making a very great valley.


- 3 Just before, Christ comes visibly for the conversion of Israel and for the new Christians. Because of his covenant with Abraham, at that time, Israel will recognize the One whom they have pierced and they will repent, they will be saved then if they follow the directives of their Messiah (Luc 21 – 27 à 36). Only one third will survive according to Zechariah 13-8.


Zechariah 12 - 9 It will happen in that day, that I will seek to destroy all the nations that come against Jerusalem. 10 I will pour on the house of David, and on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplication; and they will look to me whom they have pierced; and they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for his only son, and will grieve bitterly for him, as one grieves for his firstborn. See also the prophecy of King David in Psalm 22.
