Whirlwind - The spiritual holy city being trampled is us....believers. We are His temple and His holy city.
Whirlwind - The two witnesses are two groups of witnesses....We are His witnesses that prophesy.
larry2 - Wouldn't that would make all of the body of Christ lie in the street dead for three and one half days only to be resurrected to heaven after the middle of the week.
Whirlwind - The 42 months and 1,260 days are the same span of time, are they a concurrent 3 1/2 years?
larry2 - The two witnesses testify during the first half of the tribulation.
Whirlwind - Revelation 12:6 (666) And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
larry2 - The remaining elector the woman after the antichrist takes power are those protected. Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
Whirlwind - The 12:6, or 666, marks that time as Satan's time. Who is the "they" that feed her? Does the 666 tell us which of the witnesses is feeding her or is it both? As God has "two witnesses" Satan also has...."two false witnesses."
larry2 - How do you associate the two false witnesses of Matthew 26:60 with the end times?
Whirlwind - Revelation 13:1,5 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. (5) And there was given unto him a mouth speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to continue forty and two months.
• Are there thoughts on that time and if the witnesses prophesy about that time or during that time?
larry2 - Again brother, my thoughts are that this is talking of the second three and one half years of the tribulation and when the sea is mentioned, most generally that is talking of the Gentile nations, while the earth normally refers to Israel. This beast is the antichrist that will rise up from the nations and reign forty-two months.
