How are the birth, work, and ascension of Christ briefly described?


"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." Verse 5.
NOTE-Specifically this must refer to Christ (see Ps. 2:7-9); but through Him is also prefigured the
experience of the people of God, who finally in the judgment are to share with Christ in ruling the nations
with a rod of iron (Rev. 2:26,27), and, like Him, when their work on earth is accomplished be "caught up,"
at His appearing, to God and to His throne. 1 Thess. 4:15-17.
