Realization of Prophetic Visions

ADVERSARIES ON DISPLAY
THE DRAGON VERSUS GOD'S WOMAN
Toward the end of the first century of the
Christian era, the Apostle John received the Revelation of Jesus Christ. During
this experience, John saw the life-story of the resurrected Jesus.
While on earth, Jesus told a man named Nicodemus
that unless a person is born again, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
Jesus himself was the first man to experience such a rebirth. In the
Revelation, John had the honor of witnessing this unprecedented event.
The birth of any person presupposes the existence
of both a father and a mother. For his human birth, the mother of Jesus was
Mary. God was his Father. But, in order to be born again, he did not re-enter
the womb of Mary. (John 3:1-8) Who, then, was his mother this time? The
Scriptures indicate that the second, or spiritual, conception took place at the
time of his baptism. Holy Spirit came upon him and God said, "This is my
son." So, in a new way, he was begotten of God's Spirit. God, then, was
the Father. But who was the mother?
