The two witnesses are killed (Rev. 11:8-10)

Oct 10, 2020

Moses and Elijah are the two witnesses for the saints during the tribulation, they are going to provide aid for the children of Israel who will suffer from the persecution by the Antichrist.

When the Antichrist raises himself from the dead, he shall kill these two witnesses and seek vengeance. Their bodies will lie in the street of Jerusalem.

Even though we know the Holy City then is referring to Jerusalem, but it’s spiritually known as Sodom and Egypt, simply because Jerusalem at then will be so defiled and corrupted by the system of the Antichrist.

Revelation 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.

We need to know that in every physical working, there could be a spiritual influence and force at work, whether it’s by the Holy Spirit or Evil Spirit.

The spirit of Sodom and Egypt has always been associated with wickedness.

Revelation 11:9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and a half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.

Jerusalem during the tribulation will be so wicked that the people allow the beheaded parts and bodies of Moses and Elijah to be laying across the street. This comes to show how wretched human nature is.

This also reminds us that we need to always monitor and be on guard with our own flesh. If we don’t, we will just yield to temptation and sin in no time.

Daniel 9:27 prophesies about the tribulation and the exact biblical timeline of one day equals to one year.

Daniel 9:27And he shall confirm the covenant with many for one week: and in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations he shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured upon the desolate.

Is Jesus really buried on Good Friday?

Now let’s look at the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his burial for three days and three nights.

A lot of worldly scholars argue that Jesus was crucified and buried on Good Friday, but that does not quite fit into the timeline according to the Bible.

According to the Jewish Calendar, real bible believers counter-argue that Jesus should be buried on Wednesday at 6PM instead, as it took the whole of Thursday, Friday, and Saturday to complete the three-day burial.

This is why it is important for us to witness Jesus’s resurrection and worship our Heavenly Father on a Sunday morning.

The world rejoices when the two witnesses die

Revelation 11:9 also prophesies that when the two witnesses die, the whole world will be able to watch and see what happens, because of advanced media and technology.

Revelation 11:10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

Based on verse 10, we can also know that the timeline is around Christmas because of people celebrating merrily and exchanging gifts during the death of the two witnesses.
