"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 being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.  

And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth: and the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and [to] his throne. And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred [and] threescore days" (Revelation 12:1-6).
It should be obvious who this woman is, or whom she represents. But I was once told that common sense isn't all that common.  Besides I didn't know until someone told me so...

The first thing we can identify from this scripture is the 'great red dragon' that threw 1/3 of the angles (stars of heaven) with him as being Satan the Devil.  Next we see that this woman brought forth a man child who was to rule earth yet He was caught up to God and His throne before she has to run to the wilderness. We can readily identify Him as Jesus.
The question then becomes where did Jesus come from? Or better yet come thru??

Four Winds of Heaven PLUS An Analysis of the Rapture, Saved and Born Again 

The Short answer is, from among the Nation of Israel.

In Genesis 37 Joseph the 11th son of Jacob had a dream. "...Behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me (V.9)."  This is no coincidence that this woman in the book of Revelation is adorned with the sun, moon and 12 stars. But Joseph's dream had 11 stars, verse 10 will tell us why.
"And he told [it] to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What [is] this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? "

In this dream Jacob is the Sun, Joseph's mother Rachel is the moon, and Joseph's 11 brothers are the stars bowing down to him. In Revelation 17 Jacob represents the woman's clothes (sun), Rachel represents her path under her feet (moon), and Joseph and his 11 brothers represent the crown of 12 stars that she wore. 

This woman is Israel!
Israel is God's elect, and the firstborn of the Adoption of God.  Therefore anyone receiving salvation will receive it by becoming part of the commonwealth of Israel. Because of the blood of Christ, everyone now has that opportunity to keep the commandments of God and the testimony of Jesus and be saved.
"Wherefore remember, that ye being in time past Gentiles in the flesh... That at that time ye were without Christ, being aliens from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers from the covenants of promise, having no hope, and without God in the world:  But now in Christ Jesus ye who sometimes were far off are made nigh by the blood of Christ" (Ephesians 2:11-13).

May The Lord add a Blessing to the Reading of His Word, In Jesus Name...
