Revelations a StudySection 8.
Chapter 10:1 thru 11:19, Measuring of the temple of God, The Little Book, The 2 witnesses. The Seven Thunders , any speculation on the words spoken of by the seven thunders would be useless, it is not for us to know.
Rev 10:5 thru 10:7, the end of physical time. Time was created for man and not for God. Rev 10:7 is future prophecy.
Rev 10:8 thru Rev 10:10 Is speaking of the Truth of the Scripture, to the human body it is bitter but to the spirit of acceptance it is sweet. John at this point was told that he was to continue to spread the gospel.
Rev 11:2 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 years and 6 mths.] We are starting to get closer to the explanation of the Seven year peace treaty with Israel and the Antichrist. The two witnesses, [the two olive trees, the two candlesticks.] Rev 11:3 thru Rev 11:6 is an explanation of the two witnesses and their power for the time alloted them ,their power and their witness for God.
Rev 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. [3.48 years.]
Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
The testimony of the two witnesses will not be stoped nor altered by any human or spirit. Now there are two intrepretations of the Idenity of the two witnesses. Enoch and Elijah [Gen 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.] Enoch never saw death. Elijah, 2Ki 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.Elijah never saw death. The other theory includes Moses which had a physical death, but is said to have called down fire from heavan. Elijah and Moses. [Isa. 52:7,Isa. 44:26-28, Isa.52:8-9; 62:6-7, Ezek. 40-48] This is literial, Rev 11:5 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. {Isa 29:6 Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.}{Isa 30:30 And the LORD shall cause his glorious voice to be heard, and shall shew the lighting down of his arm, with the indignation of his anger, and with the flame of a devouring fire, with scattering, and tempest, and hailstones.} {Joe 2:3 A fire devoureth before them; and behind them a flame burneth: the land is as the garden of Eden before them, and behind them a desolate wilderness; yea, and nothing shall escape them.}
This is literial,Rev 11:6 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.
Rev 11:7 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.
Rev 11:8 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.
Rev 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, [paralell to their time of testimony of 3.48 years.] and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
