The Witnesses Prophesy....about the 1,260 days or during?
« on: Tue Apr 06, 2010 - 15:43:43 »
Revelation 11:2-3 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. And I will give power unto My two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.


  • 1. The spiritual holy city being trampled is us....believers. We are His temple and His holy city.
    2. The two witnesses are two groups of witnesses....We are His witnesses that prophesy.
    3. The 42 months and 1,260 days are the same span of time, are they a concurrent 3 1/2 years?

    The question is....shall they/we prophesy during the 1,260 days or....shall they/we prophesy about those 1,260 days? It could be read either way. We read of that same time span in....


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.

  • 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."


Matthew 26:60 But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,


  • Is the "place prepared of God" that the woman flees to a place of safety or a place of testing. The wilderness simply means the world.....


Isaiah 14:16-17 They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms; That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?


  • Another mention of that time frame is.....


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?

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.
