The Two Wondrous Signs in Heaven
One of the wondrous signs is the woman clothed in the sun, moon, and stars, and a child that she bore. The other sign is the dragon with seven heads and ten horns. There was a great war in heaven: God and His angels against the dragon and his angels. Unable to win, the dragon was hurled down to the earth.
This occurs at the time of the fulfillment of Revelation in Revelation 12. Hereafter come the salvation, the power, and the kingdom of our God and the authority of His Christ (Rv 12:10-11).
2,000 years have passed since Jesus bore the cross. Then, was there no kingdom, salvation, nor power of God until now? These events take place after the events in Revelation 13. The dragon that was hurled down to the earth has been in control of the earth, fulfilling Deuteronomy 28 — gain everything if they overcome, but lose everything if they are defeated. Therefore, Jesus promised in Revelation 2~ 3 to give if one overcomes.
In Revelation 13, the congregation of the tabernacle temple fights and loses to the organization of the dragon, but in Revelation 12, those who fight against the dragon win. The weapons used to win were the blood of Jesus and the words of the testimony. Because the dragon loses, everything returns back to God, including the power, sovereignty, salvation, and kingdom. All creation finally returns back to God after 6,000 years.
Where is this heaven in Revelation 12, and where is the earth that the dragon is hurled down to? Heaven is the location with the sun, moon, stars, the woman, and the child. Thus, the tabernacle of the spiritual Israel is called heaven (refer to Gn 37:9-11), and the events that transpired at this location were also recorded. The earth refers to the physical world; the dragon stands on the shore of the sea, referring to the people of the world, to make war against those who overcame with the testimony. The dragon becomes one with these people to harm them.
The main reference verse states that salvation and the kingdom of God will come through the act of overcoming. How and with what will this kingdom be created? After the war ends, people are harvested from the east and the west, and sealed. 12,000 people from each tribe will be established to create the kingdom of God. These events are fulfilled according to the New Testament prophecies.
Because the holy city, the new Jerusalem which is the tabernacle of the spiritual realm in heaven, as well as God, Jesus, and the souls of the martyrs come down to this place, it becomes the kingdom of heaven where the heavens and earth unite. This is the kingdom of heaven the congregation members on earth desire, and this is also the kingdom God longs to build. This is the kingdom of heaven where the spirit and the flesh become one, the New Heaven and New Earth.
This is the era in which God reigns, and this place is where paradise is fulfilled and all creation is healed. Furthermore, this work of re-creation is the greatest wondrous sign since the creation of the world.
