“And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.”
King James Version (KJV)

It seems that "from the face of the serpent" is being understood as being nourished "by" the face of the serpent. Whereas, it should be understood as "away from (Gk. apo) the face of the serpent".

Curiosone, from the face of the serpent means from the srepents wrath You are not understanding what you are reading.
You are taking scriptures and twisting them around.
I do not argue God's word.
Therefore I can't explain anymore.

Ok, So the serpent (the Anti-Christ), nourishes (supports as you have said) Israel? Does that make sense? No. Or does it? Hmmm. Is America, the one that helps Israel, actually "Anti-Christ? Another thing, the woman is Israel, yes, but all 12 tribes as indicated by the 12 stars in verse 1 of this chapter. It says at the end of verse 14 that the woman is nourished from the serpent for a time, this is clear. I have a dog, and I nourish him daily from the food I give him I put in his bowel or from my table. Where do you get Anti-Christ from for that is no where in this chapter.

America because of Church and State mostly being kept separate thereby allowing citizenship separate from baptism has been a resting place for the Bride for times. The beautiful time and place where children could be raised to understand the call of the Lord in due time to His repentance and peace and then be properly baptized into the Bride. It seems that the wait for the return for the Lord has become to lengthy for many professing Christians. Non- resistance teachings have been buried in the coming together of Church and State in politics and then the promoting a future reign of Christ on earth instead of an in earth reign of Christ, which is now. The Bride will only keep herself unto Him in faithfulness no matter the world events natural or man-made.

Good morning. Seems like for now that the second day of the week here in earth may continue to be a pull.
I understand that many believe the Lord will return to the earth again. I believe his work was 100% finished on the cross and that the harvest is imminent and the harvesters are few. The other thief on the cross wanted Jesus to save both of them from death by working a work in the world. Perhaps Judas Iscariot had the same erroneous thinking and false hope.
When the view of the harvest is from the perspective that I believe, politics of this earth are of the world.

The bride at this time is in every nation and the women with the stars is Israel, when the antichrist army invades Israel and destroys most of Israel at that time, some will run into the wilderness for the time of the rest of the great tribulation period. I'm thinking America "The two eagle wings" will help her and protect her.

There are likely more than a few Christians who continue to believe that the return of the Lord will be sudden as well as His harvest.
Could the woman in the wilderness be the Bride keeping herself only unto Him?

The woman being Israel, Revelation 12:14 and the women was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent.
This could be America helping Israel, we are the only one that stands with Israel. America would not be part of the global system and would help Israel during the great tribulation. Pray for America and Israel.

The time is drawing near for things to be as they were. The church will be persecuted.
