Disraeli,

Rev. 11: is a very end time prophecy, verse 1 reveals the fact that judgement comes first to those who have called on Him for salvation. Measuring up those in the churches and have claimed Him and do to some extent worship Him.

Verse two then those outside who have never come to him are going to get a wake up call for 42 mos. literal time to place them in His or the destroyers camp literally. And literally they do in blastphemy etc. curse the throne of God which is the Heavenly Jerusaleum. The two witnesses may well be the 144,000 and they go out as His witnesses in humility and will take all kinds of abuse, you name it. These are armed with the oil, the Holy Spirit, "two olive tree" and the two candlesticks, His Word to us, the old and new Testaments. And many miracles will be done by them without doubt, it is the last witness to rebelling mankind. When their witness is completed it is clear the beast out of the bottomless pit kills them, not long though and they are vindicated as their bodies lay only 3-1/2 days and are not buried.

There is much I would add but am not sure it would be fruitful here. I must add these prophecies all tie in to each other and substantiate each other, prophecy is a beautiful and rewarding study and proves our God, Yahweh, Yahshua are who and what He says he is Knowing the end from the beginning, perfectly!

Being His is not gaulding in no way shape or form, we find ourselves freed from Satan's Prison house instead.

Truth is a precious gem and we must have it and have it on every point.

Hmmm this thread is kind of disappointing (perhaps because your others are so good). The theory here is that the two witnesses could be anybody and they could die anywhere. Or did I miss something?

Anybody in the church, anyway. I saw them as representing the church where it has to stand up against the Beast.
Taking items symbolically rather than literally is one of my standard practices; I did it a couple of threads before this one when I was looking at the sealing of the 144,000. I'm sorry you were disappointed, but I think that shows how much the idea of a literal two witnesses appeals to you.

we could speculate on and on who the two witnesses are, but one thing that should be pointed out, is that they will be seen by all, will cnn be the first to cover this? or will a 20/20 host be consumed by fire? Will there body's be seen dragged through the streets live? Will they show them come back to life, to be taken up, this is the clue as to who they are what two in old test and in new, were taken up? to make this clear one from the old testament, one from the new.

In the view outlined in the OP, there would be many of them dying all over the world, in different times and places.
Then the world at large would know what was happening. I think that would be enough to meet the text.

They will not be seen by all

Luke 4: 25But I tell you of a truth, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elias, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, when great famine was throughout all the land;

26But unto none of them was Elias sent, save unto Sarepta, a city of Sidon, unto a woman that was a widow.

27And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Eliseus the prophet; and none of them was cleansed, saving Naaman the Syrian.

The teacher and the student, the one who gives and the one who receives. These are the only witnesses to the Word of God.

I don't see the 42 months as a literal time period, but as a symbolic one. This is brought out in my later "time, times and half a time" thread,.
I agree with the two witnesses being the 144,000, except that I don't take the second number literally either.

many have been called to witness, in Spirit, and in Truth. God is furious and His cup of anger overflows and is ready to be poured out on the nations. It is the sin, the lawlessness, the lack of regard and love for your fellow man in the spirit of Cain, it is the abortion, the war, the corruption, the hedonism, materialism, atheism, homosexuality, and all sorts of sexual perversion and blasphemy. God is not happy with our response to the MOST generous offering of His blameless Son, Jesus the Christ, who SUFFERED, and shed blood and water from His pierced heart that we might be made Holy in Him. Most of all God is ready to pour out judgement upon those whom He has called to be faithful followers who have turned from Him and His ways and have partaken in the cup of the blood of the Saints which the great Harlot Babylon. Repent from your sins and pray you who call yourselves faithful in Christ, pray that God in His Power and Mercy would use the coming woes to convert and save as many as possible! Have faith, and trust in the Lord, when you are tempted look to the Cross of Christ and contemplate His suffering, and His love and goodness which is so clear, and ask, do I want to cause this any more than I have? Foster a sincere sorrow for your sins, and thank Jesus for all that He has done, does, and will do to make things right! Fast and perform works of charity in union with the Unblemished Lamb of God, the Perfect Sacrifice, for the reperation of sins and the salvation of Humanity. You all worry so much about preparing yourselves physically, but never taking the time to prepare spiritually! This is primarilly a spiritual battle and the consequences and woes we see which have fallen upon the world are a punishment from God. First will be the revolutions, unrest, rebellions, and wars which will originate from the Earth, these are the inevitable ends of thinking we as Creatures can exist apart from our Creator; the second punishment will come from Heaven, and those who refuse to repent will be thrown away like chaff and never remembered in Heaven. How much time we have only the Father knows, but know that the hour is near, so trim your candles and let your light shine! Fellow watchmen be vigalent and pray, have faith, and be bold in the Spirit! Preach the Gospel, the cross of Christ, and do not be deceived by the lying spirits who only seek confusion, disorder, chaos, and death! This is what we have chosen, and God respects our free will. We are merely suffering the inevitable consequences. We were created by God and for God, but we have turned from Him! Woe unto you, and woe unto me! For I was called but fell back into sin, but praise be to God almighty who in His patience, love, and wisdom has seen fit for me to be brought back from a most disastrous path! Do not give in to the spirit of rebellion and lawlessness, and realize that we need God! What you are experiencing is growing pains as we had a painful, costly, and convicting lesson to be learned that we might know that God knows what is best for us, and wants what is best for us, but that we didn't trust Him, nor did we wish to resignate ourselves to His will. It was a test of love, or suffer the consequences of life without Love; God is love! Pray for our leaders and for those who have been deceived by the Devil himself! Would you care to take their place and know their temptations? The temptations these elitists have been confronted with is not far different from the temptation of Christ in the desert when He was brought to the top of a very high mountain and shown the kingdoms of the world in an instant, and offered the power to rule over them all for a time if only He would bow down and worship the Serpent! Pray for these leaders, that God would give us Just Judges, and Prudent, Holy, and Righteous leaders after His own heart! Nevertheless the things which are to come are those which have been written, and more! My fellow believers do not be disheartened or disenfranchised and remain firmly rooted in Christ through it all and you shall be granted a crown. Google Three Days of Darkness, and prepare!

pps: don't ever trust any movements, leaders, or even what appears to be a voice of truth which might suggests that we can save ourselves from our sins. This is the path that seems right to man, but in the end leads to death. Even with the right motivation of Justice and Righteousness, apart from God, it is a way which seems right but continues to lead us to the apex.

Thank you for that contribution.
Yes, it is a spiritual battle.
This thread is one of a long series in Revelation, now drawing towards a close.
You may be interested in looking at the others, which you will find in my profile.

the neo paganism and seeming prevalence of the Gnostics in our modern times are a sign; it is becoming much like the world was before Christ came in the flesh. As it was in the days of Noah...

They are two actual people. They are alive now. The internet is how they accomplish the things that seem impossible for two actual people to accomplish. You must see how the internet makes things possible that seem impossible. How could bodies lay in one street but be seen by the whole world? Easy with the internet.

and the three days of darkness are catholic prophecy.....which dates the tribulation much later than these days we are in now....God sent three days of darkness against the Egyptians near the end of a series of sufferings whose purpose was to free the Israelites from slavery. Similarly, God will send three days of darkness on the whole world at the end of a long series of sufferings, that is, when the first part of the tribulation ends (late 2039 or early 2040). The purpose is, at least in part, to free the faithful from the slavery of sin and to bring the world into a time of relative peace and holiness.
....the prophecy from the catholics goes into great detail and promotes the newly popular again in protestant churches....Mary worship... which i personally do not practice. i'm whole Bible.
