The Titanomachy as Eschatological Typology

I just started watching a 2014 series called Great Greek Myths, and the first episode discusses the first Greek gods, obvious as cosmological and Earthly metaphors, and shortly before 10 minutes it gets into the relationship between baby Zeus and his mother Rhea. So far at least, the series is simply retelling the basic narratives sans interpretation, making it easy to come to one's own understanding.

Father Cronos (representing Time) has been eating all his prior children with Rhea, and Rhea is finally motivated to protect Zeus from this fate. This can be seen as approximate typology for the baby Jesus fleeing, with his parents, from Herod. And it can also be seen in the presentation of Revelation 12 where the Woman (aka Virgo the Virgin) must flee with the newborn Christ savior for 3.5 years.

The Woman and the Dragon

1And 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: 2And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 3And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. 4And 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. 5And 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. 6And 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.
(Rev 12:1-6, KJV)​

As I have been asserting, the Preterist and Futurist Christian eschatologies are both references to respective transitions of Ages (based on ... Time). Time, as Chronos, has eaten the prior sibling 'ages' of Zeus, and it is 'savior' Zeus who will save his siblings, and he ushers in the Age of the Olympians, by killing the defeating of the Titans in the ten(?) year Titanomachy war. Contrary to Wikipedia, the series says that this lasted for several hundred years though. The defeated Titans are thrown in the 'prison' of Tartarus, an abyss where souls are judged. Tartarus is a Hell for gods, further below Hades, the later Hell for humans. Hades, the Olympian god (as well as the place), is one of Zeus's brothers. Sound familiar?

The gods are dead, long live the gods.

The uniquely precise, dynamic, and contextually dense zodiacal alignment of September 23, 2017, in accordance with Revelation 12 stars the planet Jupiter as the infant savior to be. In Rome, Jupiter was equivalent to the Greek Zeus, sometimes being referred to as Zeus Jupiter. I have also shown that planet Jupiter was precisely between the Gemini twins, Castor and Pollux, on September 11, 2001, and that they all were 'watching' directly above when the 767 'airliners' crashed into them.

Furthermore, as the Moon is at the feet of Virgo (in verse 1), on 9/11 the Moon 'marked out' the chronology of the event, with the Moon at the feet of the twins. I have also discussed that Castor and Pollux, the Dioscuri twins, were the Greco-Roman world's saviors prior to Christianity. And I have discussed J. Rendell Harris's 'discovery' that the Roman Church had converted the twins into various local saints.

And yes, Zeus was the father of Pollux and Helen, but not Castor. Inverted, Jesus had a god as a father and a mortal 'father'. Zeus is raised by a foster-mother, Amalthea, in a cave.

Of course, the Age of the Titans, as far as I know, is pure mythological invention in the sense that there was no real historical age when they were revered by real humans and then replaced. However, they themselves are likely typological representations from such as the Mesopotamians.
