"The disciples came to Jesus privately, asking, 'Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of your coming, and the sign of the end of the age?'" -Mat.24:3 They still come to Him privately today, with the same two questions. And for those to who have ears to hear He answers, - privately.

This special E-book is a must read for anyone wanting to understand the significance of the Revelation 12 Sign and what it means for this final generation as this present age of grace for the Church comes to a close.
While Revelation 12 certainly describes some events occurring in the middle of the Tribulation, we need to pay careful attention to Revelation 12:3. When we say "Revelation 12 sign" we are really referring to thefirst"Revelation 12 sign" (woman clothed with the sun, moon at her feet, pregnant, and crown of 12 stars). Most people completely miss that the second sign, which begins in verse 3, is the only sign that is for sure identified with the middle of the Tribulation (dragon about to devour the child before the woman flees). The fact that there are two signs and not one is telling. Also, it is only after the woman is protected by God that the last half of the Tribulation begins (Revelation 12:6). Long story short: the sign in 2017 is primarily a sign to Israel marking the beginning of Jacob's Time of Trouble, though it is also a sign of the pre-tribulational rapture of the Church which must occur before that. For years some very prominent scholars have thought the sign in Revelation 12 was always the strongest proof of a pre-trib rapture.
The Pre-Tribulational Rapture MEET Dr. Michael Svigel. Associate Professor of Theological Studies at Dallas Theological Seminary
The following statements from My Digital Seminary were taken from the third of three interviews on the subject to reveal to you the reader credible and remarkable insight into Revelation 12:1-5 and what it means for humanity when it appears September 23, 2017.
The catching up of the male child and the resulting war in heaven both take place at the beginning of the 7-year tribulation. The war in heaven and casting down of Satan, followed by the earthly invasion, attempted attack on Israel, and the flight of the woman, all take place in the first three-and-a-half years. Then the reign of the Beast take place in the second half of the tribulation. Therefore, the catching up of the male child (the rapture) takes place before the seven-year tribulation. This becomes an excellent exegetical argument for the pre-tribulation rapture. Like very early premillennialists, like Irenaeus of Lyons (around A.D. 180) and Hippolytus of Rome (around 230), I hold that the seventieth week of Daniel 9:27 is a future period, not a period of the past. This period coincides with the expected tribulation period described in 2 Thessalonians 2 and Revelation 11–13. This was a common view of premillennialists in the early church, and I believe they were right.
The pretrib rapture is suggested in Matthew 24, but I don’t believe it is explicit. It is implied by the principle of the rescue prior to judgment when Jesus refers to the times of Lot and the times of Noah. Peter picks up these same images and uses them as an anticipation for a future rescue of the godly from “trial” in 2 Peter 2:6. The context is eschatological and the term peirasmos can refer to a time of “trial” or “testing” like the tribulation (1 Peter 1:6; Revelation 3:10). As far as Revelation goes, I do believe it is exegetically established in Revelation 12:5 and implied in Revelation 3:10. IN CONCLUSION: The Revelation 12 sign in the heavens (or "great wonder " KJV) will appear September 23, 2017 at precisely 10:30 am PDT or equivalent time of 8:30 pm Jerusalem time. The complete presense and perfect alignment of all the symbolic imagery has been traced back 6.5 thousand years in the past and 1000 years into the future via Stellarium software, and well documented on a spreadsheet. It is a one time event and will never occur again.The sign marks the season of the rapture for the church, and the beginning of the time of Jacob's trouble. The sign occurs on the EXACT same day as the feast of trumpets.
We were given the correct number of days. Don't buy into the lie that our Lord would not have us know the 2 day "window" of His return. The below chart explains the final days timeline where the days given Daniel amazingly fit.
