In the next two chapters of Revelation, (12 & 13) Christ is unveiled to us as the Mighty Victor. We are shown His scriptural identity as the one foretold that would come & overthrow the enemy. Christ`s Scriptural Identity. `Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, & on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labour & in pain to give birth.`(Rev. 12: 1 & 2) 1. Christ is the seed of a woman, & He bruises the serpent`s head. (Gen. 3: 15) 2. Christ would be born from the nation of Israel. (Gen. 37: 9) (sun, moon & 12 stars represent Abraham & Sarah & the 12 sons – Israel) 3. Christ is the `child` promised. (Isa. 9: 6) (`unto us a child is born. Unto us a Son is given.`) Thus God foretold that the `seed` of woman would crush the serpent. The deliverer would come as a seed, not a tree, meaning not fully grown & He would come from the woman & not from the man, (not Adam`s sinful blood line but the Holy Spirit`s implanted `blood.`) He would also come through God`s special nation of Israel.
