Learn more about the ministry of the current project at www.projectmatters.com today we get into symbolism and the mysterious woman as your host Dr. Cheryl Davis and you're listening to truth matters that we get into symbolism and some of these chapters are some of the most difficult chapters to interpret outside this woman is a great wonder how a great sign appeared in heaven. Woman clothed with the sun, the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of 12 stars in being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth to yeah I'm sure you're probably asking who is this woman and there's a lot of debate about her identity were going to get into who she is. If you read the media already scanned the Internet Christian science, religion, founder Mary Baker Glover Patterson Eddie says that it is her. The Catholic Church teaches that the woman represents the Virgin Mary, who is in heaven.
In bodily form. Following her assumption and assumption is when you're taken into heaven when the course of her life was finished. There are quite a few issues with this we know that it's not the Christian science, religion, founder Sam, not necessarily gonna defend that.
But they are quite a few issues with this being married that Mary had already birth Jesus on before she was ascended into heaven. Some Protestants teach that this woman is the modern day church but the church did not birth Christ. The church is his bride on the correct identity of this woman.
And really when you read on verses one and two piece context clues as far as the history of Israel nation, the correct identity of this woman is Israel. Israel is often described by the prophets as a woman in travail and in Romans chapter 9 verse five Paul points out that Christ came from a Jewish nation and we know that Jesus was a G Christ is pictured here being born of a woman and that woman is the nation of Israel.
So how do we know how we know that on we know that based on the history of Israel said let's go back to Genesis chapter 37 verse nine and this is the interesting story of Joseph on who we know is Joseph the dreamer and on chapter 37 records his dreams of greatness and verse nine says then he dreamed still another dream and told it to his brothers and said look I dreamed another dream and this time the sun, the moon and the 11 stars bow down to me. Joseph was the dreamer and in this case Jacob was the son Jacobs wife Rachel was the moon and his brothers were the stars verse one. Let me call that out again verse one. The woman is clothed with the sun which we know is Jacob who whose name was on later turned to Israel on we know that Rachel is the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of 12 stars, which are the 12 tribes of Israel and in Joseph's dream.
There were 11 those are his brothers.
Joseph is the 12 star.
