The Two Witnesses

Before the two witnesses arrive in Jerusalem these events occur

Events of the Great Tribulation

  • Before the tribulation begins there will be a war between the Ram and the Goat Daniel Chapter 8
  • The Ram comes from ( middle eastern nations)
  • The Goat is of the (Western nations) and will be the victor of the war
  • The Goat will set up a temporary government out of the destroyed nations until a treaty is settled
  • The temporary government is the horn between the eyes of the Goat  the first king
  • The first king will divide the land into four nations
  • Out of one of the nations little horn comes to power
  • Little horn will eventually overpower the other three nations
  • Little horn comes to power as a great military man.
  • Little horn with the help of Satan’s supernatural powers will deceive the world into believing he is the Jewish Messiah.
  • A new covenant will be made between Israel and little horn
  • After a few days, little horn will break the covenant and demand Israel worship him and his image of the beast he placed in the temple
  • This will be an abomination to Israel
  • Many people in Israel will refuse to worship the image, then little horn will have them killed
  • The two witnesses begin to announce plagues on the beasts kingdom and his followers
  • Others will be able to escape they will run into the mountains to hide
  • God will protect them in the wilderness until tribulation is finished
  • Little horn will then hunt the Christians down
  • Christians out of fear will leave their faith to follow little horn this will be a large falling away from the church
  • 144,000 chosen by God will instruct and strengthen many people
  • Christians who keep their faith will be beheaded.Then the end comes

 

  • The Two Witnesses are two literal men who will stand in Jerusalem and announce warnings and plagues
  • They will preach for 1,260 days
  • People in the Old Testament wore sackcloth to show they were in mourning
  • These two men will prophesy warnings, plagues and coming judgments.
  • Men will try to harm or kill the two witnesses but God will not allow their deaths until God’s plan for them is finished
  • At the end of the forty-two months, God finally allows the witnesses to be killed at the hand of the Beast
  • They will lie dead in the street for 3 1/2 days
  • After the 3 1/2 days pass they come back to life and ascend into heaven

Revelation 17:11 And the beast that was, and is not, even he is the eighth, and is of the seven, and goeth into perdition.

  • The beast that was = Satan had a government before he was cast into the bottomless pit.
  • The Beast that is not = Satan’s government was taken away when Jesus returned then Satan was imprisoned for 1000 years.
  • Beast is the eighth = After the 1000 years are over Satan will be set free and will gather a new army.
  • Beast was of the seventh = Satan was the seventh government from the great tribulation before he was cast into the pit.
  • Beast will go into perdition =  After the 1000 years are over God will set Satan free from his prison. And then Satan will gather a new army. Afterward, God destroys Satan  (et al. perdition means total destruction)
