Chapter 11

The two witnesses

The Two Witnesses – (they have 3 ½ years, 11:2) The two olive trees are the two lampstands [Zech 4:1-7] standing before God. They are the 2nd Woe, 11:3 thru 11:14.  The two witnesses begin their witnessing at the time the 2nd beast begins his reign [Rev 13:11-18]. The 6th Seal [6:12], 6th Trumpet [9:13] and 1st Bowl through the 6th Bowl [16:2 – 16:12] will happen all at the same time, during this last 3 ½ years that the Two Witnesses have, 2nd Woe [11:3 -14]. Then the 3rd Woe is: the 7th Bowl, 16:17-21, 7th Church, 7th Seal, 7th Trumpet, all happen at the same time, the day of our Lord’s Return, [Zech Chap 14].

Rev 11:1 THEN I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there.”  Eze 40-41;

This temple in Revelation and the one in Ezekiel 40 – 41 are not explainable to me, yet.

Rev 11:2 “But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months.”  Rev 11:2,3;12:6,7,14; 13:5;

[42 mo, 3 1/2 years, 1260 days, time and times and the dividing of time.]

Rev 11:3 “And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”  Rev 11:2,3;12:6,14; 13:5;Isa 10:20-27; 12:7; Zech 4:3,6,11;

Isa 10:20; And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the remnant of Israel, and such as are escaped of the house of Jacob, shall no more again stay upon him that smote them; but shall stay upon the LORD, the Holy One of Israel, in truth.

Zech 4:3And two olive trees by it, one upon the right [side] of the bowl, and the other upon the left [side] thereof. 6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This [is] the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. 11Then answered I, and said unto him, What [are] these two olive trees upon the right [side] of the candlestick and upon the left [side] thereof?

Rev 15:1 THEN I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous: seven angels having the seven last plagues, for in them the wrath of God is complete. Rev1:4,12,16,20; 2:1; 3:1; 4:5; 5:6; 10:7; 15:1,7;

Rev 15:2 And I saw something like a sea of glass mingled with fire, and those who have the victory over the beast, over his image and over his mark and over the number of his name, standing on the sea of glass, having harps of God. Rev 13:16-18; Rev 4:1; 6:9;

 

Rev 15:3 They sing the song of Moses, the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying:

“Great and marvelous are Your works,

Lord God Almighty!

Just and true are Your ways,

O King of the saints!” Ex 15:1-21; Deut 31:30 – 32:1-43;

 

Ex 15:1-21 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying, I will sing unto the Lord, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea.

Deut 31:30 And Moses spake in the ears of all the congregation of Israel the words of this song, until they were ended.

Rev 15:4 “Who shall not fear You, O Lord, and glorify Your name?

For You alone are holy.

For all nations shall come and worship before You,

For Your judgments have been manifested.”

 

Rev 15:5 After these things I looked, and behold, the temple of the tabernacle of the testimony in heaven was opened.

 

Rev 15:6 And out of the temple came the seven angels having the seven plagues, clothed in pure bright linen, and having their chests girded with golden bands. Rev 3:5,18; 4:4; 6:11; 7:9,13,14; 15:6; 19:8,14; Ex 28:2; Lev 16:4; Isa 61:10; Dan 7:9

Isa 61:10; I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, my soul shall be joyful in my God; for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation, he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decketh [himself] with ornaments, and as a bride adorneth [herself] with her jewels.

Dan 7:9; I beheld till the thrones were cast down, and the Ancient of days did sit, whose garment [was] white as snow, and the hair of his head like the pure wool: his throne [was like] the fiery flame, [and] his wheels [as] burning fire.

 

Rev 15:7 Then one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven golden bowls full of the wrath of God who lives forever and ever. Rev 1:4,12,16,20; 2:1; 3:1; 4:5; 5:6; 15:1,7;

[‘and no man was able to enter the temple till the 7 plagues….were completed.] Now it is shut!

And it shall come to pass, [that] whosoever shall call on the name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the remnant whom the LORD shall call.

Zech 14:6-7; And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] the light shall not be clear, [nor] dark: But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, [that] at evening time it shall be light.

Rev 9:3 Then out of the smoke locusts came upon the earth. And to them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.  Isa 24:17; Nahum 3:17; Eph 1:12-14;

A King named “The Destroyer” in English

Note: I was doing this study when Israel was attacked by Hezbullah in the year 2006 and it came over the news, a statement from Israel calling Nazrallah, the “destroyer of Lebanon.” He is the leader of Hezbullah. It was powerful. It seemed like the time when the leader Caiaphas said: John 11:50;  John 18:14; “..that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.” How insignificant that statement seemed, and how many even heard it. John recorded it and was probably there when he heard it. He knew it was a significant, powerful statement.

Job 26:6; “Sheol is naked before God, and Abaddon has no covering.” (ESV)

Chapter 10

A Parenthetical warning of the last 3 ½ years and the prophecy of the 2 witnesses who warn of the final wrath of God. The 6th and 7th angels to sound their trumpets yet.

Rev 10:1 I saw still another mighty angel coming down from heaven, clothed with a cloud. And a rainbow was on his head, his face was like the sun, and his feet like pillars of fire.  Eze 1:28

 

Eze 1:28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so [was] the appearance of the brightness round about. This [was] the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw [it], I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

Rev 10:2 He had a little book open in his hand. And he set his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land,

 

Rev 10:3 and cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roars. When he cried out, seven thunders uttered their voices.

 

Rev 10:4 Now when the seven thunders uttered their voices, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven saying to me, “Seal up the things which the seven thunders uttered, and do not write them.”

 

We will all know what they say when we are all together.

 

Rev 10:5 The angel whom I saw standing on the sea and on the land raised up his hand to heaven

 

Rev 10:6 and swore by Him who lives forever and ever, who created heaven and the things that are in it, the earth and the things that are in it, and the sea and the things that are in it, that there should be delay no longer,

 

 

Rev 10:7 but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of God would be finished, as He declared to His servants the prophets. Rev 10:7; 11:15, 16:17;John 19:30; Eze 39:8;

 

When the 7th angel Trumpet sounds Mystery of God Finished
This verse explains, to me, that the 6th and 7th Seals, Trumpets and Bowls go together. Verse 15:8 says, ‘….no one was able to enter the temple till the seven plagues were completed.’ This has led me to believe the 6th seal, 6th trumpet, 6th bowl, 1st and 2nd woes, are to occur simultaneously while the 7th seal, 7th trumpet, 7th bowl, and are all to occur simultaneously climaxing the finished wrath of God the 3rd woe.

 

John 19:30; When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.

Eze 39:8; Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this [is] the day whereof I have spoken.

Rev 10:8 Then the voice which I heard from heaven spoke to me again and said, “Go, take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel who stands on the sea and on the earth.”  Eze 2:9 – 3:1;

Eze 2:9; And when I looked, behold, an hand [was] sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book [was] therein; 10And he spread it before me; and it [was] written within and without: and [there was] written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe. 3:1Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.

Rev 10:9 So I went to the angel and said to him, “Give me the little book.” And he said to me, “Take and eat it; and it will make your stomach bitter, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth.”  Eze 2:10 – 3:1-4;

 

Eze 2:10And he spread it before me; and it [was] written within and without: and [there was] written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe. 3:1; Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel. 2So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll. 3And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat [it]; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them.

Rev 10:10 Then I took the little book out of the angel’s hand and ate it, and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. But when I had eaten it, my stomach became bitter. Eze 2:10 – 3:1-4;

Eze 3:3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat [it]; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.

Rev 10:11 And he said to me, “You must prophesy again about many peoples, nations, tongues, and kings.” Eze 2:10 – 3:1-4;
