Revelation 12:1-13:18 reveals the seven personages of Revelation.

 

Person Revealed
Sun-clothed woman This is national Israel with the 12 stars representing the 12 tribes. Following the rapture or “catching away’ of the church from earth, God focuses His attention on Israel throughout the tribulation period of the end times.
Dragon This is the devil as revealed in Revelation 12:9
Man-Child Most scholars agree this is the first fruits of all those who will rule with Christ, which includes the overcoming members of the Church and the 144,000
Michael Israel’s patron angel
Jewish Remnant Jews who also have the testimony of Jesus Christ; these will eventually die as martyrs for Christ, Revelation 15:2, 3
First Beast, Antichrist, Revelation 13:1-10
  • This is the same beast as in Daniel 7, who leads the last great Gentile federated empire (10-crowned horns).
  • The sea from which he arises denotes peoples and nations and the restless, unsettled political condition of the world.
  • Satan will empower his man to rule this empire free from the restraining power of the raptured church.
  • This is he imitator of Christ, who attempts to take the place of Christ.
  • “And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly would was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast” (Revelation 13:3).
The beast did not receive a mortal wound, one of his heads seemed to have a mortal wound. People will marvel at his apparent power to raise this under-ruler from the dead.
Second Beast, False Prophet, Revelation 13:11-15, 19:20, 20:10
  • A close associate of the Antichrist
  • Acts as imitator of the Holy Spirit
  • He will do miracles and wonders to deceive the world into following the Antichrist
  • It is possible that he will be a Jew, since he is to arise out of the earth, and this often refers to Israel
  • He will be influential in establishing a world religion and forcing all to worship the First Beast, the Antichrist

 

Throughout the Book of Revelation are several series of sevens; below are links to some of the ones we’ve discussed.
