The Two Witnesses

After following the commands of God, John was presented with the Lord’s two witnesses. They were sent by God so they could prophesy for 1260 days. They were poorly dressed in order to represent sorrow and remorse. John does not reveal who the two witnesses are in Revelation Chapter 10.

The witness’s sole purpose was to prepare for God’s realm and His sanctuary. For their duty, the Lord provided them with the ability to protect themselves against naysayers and nonbelievers. They were also on earth to judge the acts of man and pursue punishment if necessary.

The Two Witnesses are Killed

A deadly beast comes up from the bottomless pit and kills the two witnesses. Their ravaged bodies are left in the middle of the streets of Jerusalem for all to see. Jerusalem then turns into a city of sinful decadence, selfishness, and tyranny for the next several days. The lawlessness is celebrated as is the death of the two witnesses with the people throwing a huge party.

However, much to the people’s surprise, the two witnesses are resurrected and called to the Kingdom of Heaven. They ascend as people watched. As the witnesses looked down upon the earth, there was a huge earthquake. It killed a tenth of Jerusalem and caused the rest of Jerusalem to repent for their sins.

The Last Trumpet Blast

John is now alerted that the Lord’s rule has begun after an angel blows his horn. The faithful begin to announce their Lord Jesus Christ has returned and they warn others that judgment has begun. The view of Heaven is revealed as a massive storm comes down for all of the earth to see.

Revelation 11 (King James Version)

1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.

12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,

17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
