John sees in Revelation the child is an individual Christ and the dragon is an individual satan. If the child is an individual and the dragon is an individual, what does that suggest to you about the woman?
That she's an individual as well. And, this woman is the mother of the child who is described as the messiah, Jesus Christ. Therefore, it would follow that the woman of Revelation 12 is Mary, Jesus' mother. Moreover, as mentioned above, this woman is wearing a crown.
And, while that is not all too uncommon today The Woman Clothed With The Sun - The Indelicates - David Koresh Superstar (CD see a woman wearing a crown, in ancient Israel whenever a woman was wearing a crown and on a throne, she was a queen. And, not the wife of the king but the mother of the queen - the Queen Mother of the Old Testament.
And, lastly, Dr. Pitre affirms that the assertion that Catholics call Mary "Queen of the Universe" or "Queen of Heaven" does not mean that Catholics think she is divine we do not offer sacrifice to her, for example, and the Church has condemned such practices in the early Church like with the Collyridians. Rather, Catholics only declare Mary as "Queen of the Universe" aside from the fact that she has the moon underfoot whilst wearing a crown in Revelation 12 and "Queen of Heaven" aside from the fact that she, as Revelation 12 says, is in heaven wearing a crown insofar as her son is King of the Universe and King of Heaven.
For, the Queen Mother is only so by her relation to the King. And, this is an essential element of the Catholic Church's teaching about Mary: namely, that what it teaches about Mary is only to further anchor and secure what it teaches about Jesus.

If the crowd had been quiet for sleepingdog, the patient hush as Low took the stage was beyond reverential, as though no-one wanted the silent spell to be broken before a note was sounded. And that spell-breaking note came from Sparhawk on guitar. For these or the later smattering of older songs, the effect was similar. The four were all dressed in black and performed with eyes-closed rapture or simply looking downwards.
There were no frills or antics to their performance with an almost casual as well as minimal stage set-up: the two guitars used were simply propped against the wall rather than racked or sitting on stands. The clamorous, overlapping shouting was deafening.
On the other side of town, Sufjan may have been dazzling audiences with feathers and day-glo but Album) on a plain stage with minimal trimmings, Low made a powerful impression with just the simple, fundamental power of their music. What a monumentally brilliant name to be releasing records as: a whiff of stage-swagger, an aura of grand mystery but also faintly ridiculous and self-mocking.
The title track sounds as raw and loud as the portable guitar amp in its title: fiercely twanging rockabilly-garage power-pop — Johnny Burnette with a razor tie? From vintage guitar riffage to retro-futurist sounds in four tracks is an impressive but cohesive span. Given this and the initial The Woman Clothed With The Sun - The Indelicates - David Koresh Superstar (CD feel to the songs it therefore came as a surprise to learn Charlie Ward is a professional sound engineer.
But then again As King Post Kitsch he has a very clear audio aesthetic he wants to create - an old-fashioned roughness with a mellow immediacy - and knows how to get the best out of bedroom studios set-ups to achieve this.
And in doing so has fashioned some damn exciting music. If you require further evidence of the quality and range of output from Song By Toad Records you should also download the free 14 track digital label sampler for Glad to report it is not satanic Norwegian metal but instead a delicious slice of gauzy bliss-pop perfection.
It ripples and glides effortlessly touching on several genres - delicate orch-pop, C86 fuzz-and-crackle and swooning shoegaze - without ever alighting on one but keeping its happy face on throughout I suspect the lyrics may be darker but they are never clear or prominent enough - to these cloth-filled ears - to interfere with the mood of rapture.
Instead these short, restless instrumental and vocal pieces are woven into a deeply satisfying journey of lush textures and ragged beauty. This debut took seven years to come to fruition. But this speaks of a patient stitching together of its constituent parts rather than indecision or prevarication. It takes talent to create a record of introspective, ambient post-rock but give it such emotional depth, such richness and variety and then bathe it all in a glorious pop sensibility.
A single song on Soundcloud with minimal supporting information does little to shed further light. And the song itself? It makes less sense written down but located within the joyfully layered synths, elastic funk bass, sparing horn section and scatting backing vocals it works perfectly — still very English but with a freedom and spring that is more Kilimanjaro foothills than Kidderminster.
It does seem Diagrams is a single person and is using the blog to talk not just about the making of this EP but to link to music, books and art he likes.
The Seventh-day Adventist Church identifies itself as the end-time " remnant church " described in Revelation The Catholic Church recognizes the "woman" as part of the polyvalent symbolism that is found in the book in four referents: Israelthe ChurchEveand Mary. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints also interprets the woman to be the Church, and the man-child to be the political kingdom that will grow out of the Church prior to or during the Second Coming of Christ ; this interpretation arises from Joseph Smith's translation of the twelfth chapter of Revelation.
Dispensational Premillennialistsand Amillennialists who believe in multiple valid interpretations will often identify the woman as the nation of Israel.
There are several reasons given to support this interpretation. The woman is said to be clothed with the sun, the moon under her feet, and twelve stars. These symbols are drawn from Genesis —11, in which Joseph has a dream of the sun and moon symbolizing his father and mother, and stars representing his eleven brothers, which bow down to him. The woman flees into the wilderness where she is nourished for days, the equivalent of three and a half years or forty-two months cf.
According to this interpretation, these terms are used prophetically in Scripture either for the first half or the last half of the " Seventieth Week of Daniel ," in Daniela prophecy specifically addressed to Daniel and his people, Israel Dan. In the latter part of the seventieth week, a remnant of Israel will flee into the wilderness to escape the persecution of Antichristwho is called " the son of destruction ," "the lawless one," and "whose coming is in accord with the activity of Satan " 2 Thess.
Jesusin the Olivet discoursewarned the people of this time which would occur just prior to His return to set up His earthly, Millennial kingdom Matt. Further, the archangel Michael is called the guardian over the sons of Israel in Dan. And he will arise at that time of national Israel's tribulation Dan.
Amillennialist belief can also interpret this passage as the nation of Israel, however this belief as expressed by amillennialists refers, not to the modern Israel, but to the Ancient religious state of Israel Judea as it existed in the time of Christ. The Child is Christ, born into the then existing state of Israel, and of Israel's lineage. The remnant or sons of Israel is, in this understanding, the followers of Christ, the followers of the true religion of Israel as it exists after the coming of the messiah.
The " Seventieth Week of Daniel ," and prophecy of the Olivet discoursein this belief, are ascribed as concerning the first coming of Christ, the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 A. D During which enforced emperor worship occurred in the temple of Jerusalem, which was later almost totally destroyed, and many Jews were made slaves in distant lands resulting presumably in their remaining families not knowing what happened to them or where they wereand the establishment of Christ's Church, as it currently exists, both on earth and in heaven.
Lutheran scholar Craig Koester, for example, says, "The woman encompasses the story of Israel, from whom the Messiah was born, as well as the story of the church, which was persecuted after Jesus' death and resurrection John's visionary account of the threat against the woman and the woman's preservation Album) imagery that encompasses many moments in the story of God's people.
This allows the story to Album) to people in many times and places. Russian Orthodox theologian Sergei Bulgakov — in his interpretation of Revelation notes of the astronomical attributes of the woman in Babylonian, Persian, Greek, and Egyptian mythologies. He takes the crown of twelve stars as representing the Zodiac. In his interpretation, astronomical attributes of a pagan goddess are here "translated into the language of Christian theology and assume the new symbolism.
