BOOK OF REVELATION
THE WOMAN CLOTHED WITH THE SUN IN REVELATION CH 12
Jesus Christ, the King of Glory, founded and established His Church against which, just as He promised, the gates of Hades have not prevailed. This Church’s existence has now attained close to two thousand years, and remains the only heavenly treasury of unadulterated divine truth in the entire world. The Church is a divine-human institution constantly filled with the grace and glory of God. In the Church the Holy Trinity is always present. Angels are on watchful guard at all times both outside the doors, and within the sanctuary, where Christ is always present in the reserved Mysteries. The Church is clearly portrayed in the prophecies of the Book of Revelation, as the woman clothed with the sun while the Dragon or Devil constantly makes war against her seeking her destruction, which he continues to this day. But he has already failed and now goes after individuals, busying them with the fool’s gold treasures of this world, and blinding them that they do not see the great treasure of everlasting life.
“And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars; and she cried, travailing in birth, and pained to deliver.
