Fifth Trumpet – Seventh Trumpet – The Beast,The two Witnesses,The rapture
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
At the same time there was a terrible earthquake that destroyed a tenth of the city. Seven thousand people died in that earthquake, and everyone else was terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.
The second terror is past, but look, the third terror is coming quickly
Timing sixth trumpet
The timing of the two witnesses, the scripture shows,that they are there around the time of the sixth trumpet.The Beast comes out of the bottomless pit and succeeds in killing them,he comes out after the fifth trumpet and makes war with them, before this no one could stop them from plaguing the Earth.
Whether the two are a symbolic reference to Israel and the Church or literally two super powered individuals,one thing to ponder is the time that is left,they must have three and one half years prophecying!
Those of us working to a particular time frame would certainly go for the symbolic idea.They are called witnesses not prophets.
We can see that the rapture is coincidental with the witnesses being called to heaven, 144 thousand being sealed in their forehead and the Church’s 1Thess 4:6,15-18 experience.
Rev 19 is a picture of the Saviors return.
First He gathers His faithful from the four corners of the Earth and then unleashes the vial judgements to start the cleansing of the Earth.
This is called the “Great supper of God Almighty”!
Dont wait for Armageddon,it is only a place where the great battle will be staged…. and I’m more likely to believe that it will be after the thousand year reign.
The present Gog Magog war of Ezekiel 38 will climax into the Great Supper and all God’s faithful will be saved,the intentions of the UN forces which could only be good will change when the One World Government is railroaded by the Beast that comes up out of the Earth.
I actually believe you will get something out of this teaching all the best
