Mother Time and Her Conjoined Twins
“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.”
Before we can go ahead to the Two Witnesses of the End time, we must first look at who the “Woman” of Revelations 12 is, as well as the Son she birthed.
So, who was this “woman”? The Roman Catholics say it is Mother Mary, because of the extraordinary Child she gave birth to according to the ID-pic given in verse3, who could be none other than Jesus.
Protestant and other teachers swear that this “woman” is the historic nation of Israel, because of a dream Joseph had about the sun, moon and 11 stars bowing down before him (Gen.37:9), but one doesn’t need rocket science to see the difference, and as for Mary, she was the mother of Jesus, yes, but I do not concur that she, or the nation of Israel for that matter, was this woman of Revelations 12.
With clever arguments a case can be made for both standpoints, but here is a mutual obstacle for them: Neither Mary nor Israel was ever “clothed with the sun, had the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.” I will turn to the wisdom of Ecclesiastes where the answer is given in chapter 3:1,2 – “There is a TIME for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens: a time to be born and a time to die…”
On earth we measure TIME using the sun, moon, and stars. The sun gives us the consecutive days, with every group of seven days, the weeks. The phase of the moon gives us the months on the lunar and lunisolar calendars, and as the earth orbits the sun it takes exactly one year to move through the twelve constellations of the Zodiac (“a crown of 12 stars”), which gives us the solar months.
This means that this “woman” of Rev.12 is none other than Kairos or “Mother” Time, the time in which things happen, the time that can be seized or used fruitfully, like in carpe diem. Rom.5:6 underscores the idea: “…at just the right time… Christ died for the ungodly,”
Revelations 12:5 –
“She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron sceptre.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.”
Mother Time gives birth to everything that happens under the sun, but in Rev.12:5 only the most important events in the history of mankind are referred to: 1) The Birth of the Saviour of mankind, namely Jesus Christ, He who is destined to “rule all nations with an iron sceptre” and 2) His Death of Atonement for the sins of humanity, 3) His Resurrection and 4) His Ascension, when He was “snatched up to God and to His throne,” That is the Gospel of Truth, yet, something is not right…
Prophet John begins the words of the Book of Revelations with the words: “The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass…” (Rev.1:1)
This is major. When Prophet John wrote these words the death and resurrection of Jesus had already happened 54 years before, which means that the Son here refers to a different but great prophet like Jesus that will also “rule all nations with an iron sceptre.” This is in fact a spiritually conjoined Twin with one physical body that Mother Time gives birth to, whom Revelations 11 describes as…
“And I will give power unto my two witnesses… These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth… These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.”
The world is mesmerised by End time predictions about an Antichrist, the Triple Six, Armageddon, the Rapture etc., without even the feintest of ideas of what all these terms mean. I will refrain from those for now and concentrate on these two identifiable Witnesses that will soon step out into the End time from the pages of Revelations Chapter 11, sure proof of new buds on the Fig Tree.
The first Witness clearly has a resemblance to Elijah of 1 Kings 17:1 – “And Elijah the Tishbite, who was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, there shall not be dew nor rain these years, but according to my word.”
Just look carefully at the tell-tale similarity between Elijah standing before the LORD God, and the two olive trees and candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. Then, the finger pointing indisputably to prophet Elijah of the Old Testament as the “first Witness”: the prophecy of ‘no rain.’ Different birds, same feathers.
To distinguish the first Witness of Revelations from Elijah (H452) of old, we will use the alternate spelling of “Eliah” which is also the contracted form of YHWH (H3068) Elohim (H430) and has the same meaning of “LORD of the Gods.”
The second Witness has a likeness to two very important prophets of the Old Testament namely Moses and Elisha. Moses is the one who turned the water into blood just prior to the Exodus from Egypt. (Ex.7:14-24)
Elisha also “changed” the water into blood, although his was a case of optical illusion: “And they rose up early in the morning, and the sun shone upon the water, and the Moabites saw the water on the other side as red as blood: And they said, this is blood: the kings are surely slain, and they have smitten one another: now therefore, Moab, to the spoil.” (2Ki 3:22-23)
That means the second Witness will be a combination of Elisha II and Moses II - Elishah. As Elisha II he will be the one who will be the successor of the End time Eliah, completing the reunification of the Christian Church and lead the hemisphere of human religiosity. As Moses II he will lead the secular hemisphere of humanity from a modus operandi of political and monetary slavery in “Egypt” to a Promised Land, by removing those borders. As Elishah he will keep those hemispheres separate, but rule both as a heavenly King, Priest, and Prophet.
The name Elishah (H473) is a combination of H410 meaning “god”, and H582 meaning “mortal”. Thus, the correct rendering of Elishah is “God as a Mortal.” It is a descriptive title not unlike “Immanuel” (H410/H6005), yet distinct from the title of Jesus, the Name that was exalted above that of Elishah, and Elishah above that of all other humans (see Phi.2:10,11).
When we have a look in later chapters about different souls that were embedded with the soul of Barend as a foetus of 10 weeks in the womb of his mother, we will have a clear picture why he will be an Immanuel when he gets anointed.
A Prophet Like Moses: “The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken…” (Deu.18:15)
There is just another very important thing that I must bring to your attention here. Whenever we refer to Moses II in the text, it is in fact the Prophet promised in Deu.18:15, who will be someone ‘like Moses,’ the one whom John the Baptist unambiguously denied being. (Joh.1:21)
THE TRIBULATION AT THIS CHILD’S BIRTH
“She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth…”
As a result of Eve’s disobedience in the Garden of Eden it seems like a special curse baptised childbearing in agony as per Genesis 3:16 – “I will make your pains in childbearing very severe; with painful labour you will give birth to children…” Sure, during the 700 centuries millions of women suffered utter distress during childbirth, a process during which many died.
However, science have advanced with such great strides that giving birth is no more that big monster it was made out to be. Even natural and unaided childbirth are at times very smooth sailing. The Bible mention the “difficulty in childbirth” (Gen.35:17) in the case of Jacob’s wife, Rachel, but generally, even in the case of Mary giving birth to Jesus, it doesn’t make mention of distress.
There seems to be more to the words of Genesis 3:16 than meets the eye, and indeed, when one look at this curse against the backdrop of those curses levelled at the “snake” and to Adam, it is obvious that those words are in fact uttered prophecies.
Like all women do not experience distressful childbirth, certainly all men do not eat their bread “through painful toil” (Gen.3:17) and that can be clearly seen by just looking at the ‘haves and have-nots’ of the world. The prophecy in Adam’s curse are hidden in the last part of the verse: “…for dust you are and to dust you will return.”
This return to the dust means something totally different than the chanting at the graveside of “ashes to ashes and dust to dust.” God levels this prophetic “curse” at a LIVING Adam. This prophecy has to do with the great cycle of life. We look at this phenomenon again in later chapters, but just in a brief summary:
Our earthy bodies are composed from the dust of the earth. When we die the earth collects our bodies but our soul and spirit, which are the fruit of our lives, are harvested. Humans then receive a “glorious body” (Phi.3:21) composed of heavenly “dust,” a body that’s adapted to live in a heavenly Tabernacle which is able to travel at speeds exceeding the speed of light. We stay in a heavenly environment for an eternity, when it is time to “return to the dust of the earth” to be reborn from the same parents, but then as “men of renown,” (Gen.6:4) which means we will not go through the trials and tribulations of our first life on earth again, because our characters have been shaped to last “from everlasting to everlasting.” (Psa.90:2)
And what about the snake!
What about the snake?
The walking-talking snake!
There never was a snake! The Bible tells us “that old serpent” was the “Devil and Satan” (Rev.12.9; 20:2) who utterly fooled a gullible historical Adam and Eve, as well as the naïve Adams and Eves of nowadays. This prophecy limited the powers of Satan and Devil to work on earth, to put humans through the mill of life and in that manner convert every human being during their initial life on earth into a unique “person of renown,” which boils down to shaping the character and name of a person.
So, now that it is clear that the curses of Genesis chapter three are in fact prophetic blessings, we are able to pinpoint the meaning of the tribulation of the “Woman” of Rev.12:2. No, Mother Time doesn’t experience any “pain,” but warns us about the coming Great Tribulation that is on the cards when she gives “birth” to the coming Anointed One. Jesus Christ endorse this view: “So when you see standing in the holy place the abomination that causes desolation… flee…For there will be distress, unequalled from the beginning of the world until now – and never to be equalled again.” (Mat.24:15-21)
To say Mother Time will have a complicated delivery would be the understatement of the Aion, and although my own birth was normal, it was even more complex.
As a child I only picked up some tiny titbits of being born ‘en caul’ and ‘being a devil’ for which the services of an Indian lady was called in to burn incense and do some mystical chants, which they believed would cure me of this “devil” that they thought owned me. I do not know about the devil, but it surely cured me of incessant crying that drove those around me insane.
It was only after my supernatural experience in 1985 when my mother one day told me she still could not understand why I took so long to come. They expected me to come around the 28th of January 1949, but I only came on the 6th of April. The answer to this riddle came from my Angelic Teacher.
In the next chapter we will just have to make a detour through uncharted waters so I can explain properly. If you want to revert to the Index page, click here.
