The Woman Clothed With the Sun

“Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars. Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.

And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born. She bore a male Child who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron. And her Child was caught up to God and His throne.  Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.” Revelation 12:1-6

This week we were gifted this beautiful ornament as a New Church Day gift. I have loved looking at it and it has made me reflect on Revelation 12. In looking it up I also found this wonderful verse by verse break down of the story and its inner meaning. I’ve found it powerful to ponder on this story this June.

  1. Gorgeous ornament! I’m afraid the link to the verse by verse break down didn’t work for me.

  2. It is powerful to see the spiritual sense in the literal sense and am image to remind us of both. Thank you. The explanation in the NCBS link is really helpful.
