chapter x12


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.]
Note the 1st Beast is the one going into perdition and the 2nd Beast serves him (17:8,10)
1st Woe 9:1-12; 2nd Woe 11:3-14;  [2 Witnesses are the 2nd Woe]

*A mountain was thrown into sea, 1/3 sea blood. I use to believe if we are here to see this we have misunderstood when the rapture will occur, then Japan’s catastrophic earthquake occurred(?)

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;

2nd Beast
2nd Woe 11:3-14;  [2 Witnesses are the 2nd Woe]
6th Seal [6:12]
6th Trumpet [9:13]
Note the 1st Beast is the one going into perdition and the 2nd Beast serves him (17:8,10)
1st Woe 9:1-12; 2nd Woe 11:3-14;  [2 Witnesses are the 2nd Woe]

*A mountain was thrown into sea, 1/3 sea blood. I use to believe if we are here to see this we have misunderstood when the rapture will occur, then Japan’s catastrophic earthquake occurred?
6 Bowls of wrath, [16:2-16:12] occur same time as 2nd Woe
May be the two witnesses issue the plagues
 

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?

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;

BABYLON  (Scofield, C. I. “Scofield Reference Notes on Isaiah 13″. “Scofield Reference Notes (1917 Edition)”. <http://www.studylight.org/com/srn/view.cgi?book=isa&chapter=013&gt;. 1917.)  The city, Babylon is not in view here, as the immediate context shows. It is important to note the significance of the name when used symbolically. “Babylon” is the Greek form: invariably in the O.T. Hebrew the word is simply Babel, the meaning of which is confusion, and in this sense the word is used symbolically. (1) In the prophets, when the actual city is not meant, the reference is to the “confusion” into which the whole social order of the world has fallen under Gentile world-domination. (See “Times of the Gentiles,” Luke 21:24Revelation 16:14Isaiah 13:4 gives the divine view of the welter of warring Gentile powers. The divine order is given in Isa. 11. Israel in her own land, the centre of the divine government of the world and channel of the divine blessing; and the Gentiles blessed in association with Israel. Anything else is, politically, mere “babel.” (2) In Revelation 14:8-1116:19 the Gentile world-system is in view in connection with Armageddon; Revelation 16:1419:21 while in Rev 17, the reference is to apostate Christianity, destroyed by the nations Revelation 17:16 headed up under the Beast ; Daniel 7:8Revelation 19:20 and false prophet. In Isaiah the political Babylon is in view, literally as to the then existing city, and symbolically as to the times of the Gentiles. In the Revelation both the symbolical- political and symbolical-religious Babylon are in view, for there both are alike under the tyranny of the Beast. Religious Babylon is destroyed by political Babylon Revelation 17:16 political Babylon by the appearing of the Lord Revelation 19:19-21. That Babylon the city is not to be rebuilt is clear from ; Isaiah 13:19-22Jeremiah 51:24-26,62-64. By political Babylon is meant the Gentile world-system. (See “World,”; John 7:7Revelation 13:8) It may be added that, in Scripture symbolism, Egypt stands for the world as such; Babylon for the world of corrupt power and corrupted religion; Nineveh for the pride, the haughty glory of the world.
