Peace and Safety, Peace and Security.
With trepidation, I look forward to the upcoming January 15th Peace Conference in Paris, which should adopt the slogan “Peace and Security” or “Peace and Safety”.
As of late, this scripture comes to mind often as being tied to to Revelation 12,
1 Thessalonians 5:3
For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then sudden destruction comes upon them, as labor pains upon a pregnant woman. And they shall not escape.
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. 2 Then being with child, she cried out in labor and in pain to give birth.
3 And another sign appeared in heaven: behold, a great, fiery red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and seven diadems on his heads. 4 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. 5 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. 6 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.
It’s notable that 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 speaks of the Rapture, using the Greek word ‘harpazo’, which is the same word used in Revelation 12 to describe the male child being rescued, or caught up to heaven.
1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus.
15 For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. 16 For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. 17 Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Therefore comfort one another with these words.
So in summary, the similarities between these 3 scriptures is that they mention a woman in childbirth, and include the phrase ‘caught up’ from the Greek word ‘harpazo’ which is the Rapture. It seems to me that they might be connected on a timeline… Peace and Safety, the woman gives birth, the church is raptured and saved from the fiery red dragon but those left behind will not escape, and the 7 year Tribulation begins.
