Two Witnesses Timeline


“Ye are my witnesses that I am God.” —Isaiah 43:12

Summary

There is something so profound when we are able to show God's Word as perfect and unfailing—which It Is. Before we start, our 1000yr Kingdom Article should lay some ground work on the 1000yrs after Jesus came.

But this Timeline's purpose Is to prove the prophecy of the 2 Witnesses spoken of In Revelation 11, at the very least bring forth a strong hypothesis to It. To the aim of bringing God glory as to the authenticity of His perfect Word.

The two periods of time In question are:.

  1. The 3.5 days of their testimony that wasn't aloud to be buried. [3500 years according to 2nd Peter 2:8].

  2. the 1260 days of their prophecy.

We believe the 2 Witnesses (2 lamp stands before God) are the House of Israel and House of Judah.

We also believe the 1260 period Is the world wide Christian Kingdom called Byzantium, that took place In what the world labels as the "Dark Ages." This Is from the time of Christ to the submission of the Kingdom (east/Byzantium) over to rule by the west's anti-Christ pope In 1274, at the second council of Lyon. The Kingdom had divided at the Schism of 1054ad when the Pope no longer wanted to be an equal Bishop with the other Patriarchs. After the Pope sent a crusade (1204) to sack Constantinople It took another 70 years to bring Byzantium to their knees In front of the Pope.

Revelation 11 — The Two Witnesses

The Two Witnesses

11 Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. [a]And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. 2 But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. 3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.

4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the [b]God of the earth. 5 And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner. 6 These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.

The Witnesses Killed

7 When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also [c]our Lord was crucified. 9 Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations [d]will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves. 10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

The Witnesses Resurrected

11 Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. 12 And [e]they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. 13 In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven.

14 The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly.
