Death of the Two Witnesses

"When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which mystically is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. Those from the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will look at their dead bodies for three and a half days, and will not permit their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb. And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate; and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth." (Revelation 11:7-10 - New American Standard)

Until their work for God is done, they cannot be destroyed. This is true for all believers. God will keep us until our work for Him is complete.

At the end of the 1260 days, God will allow the Anti-Christ to kill the Two Witnesses. They will be killed in Jerusalem. By means of television, the entire world will see their dead bodies lying in the street. For three and a half days, their bodies will lie where they fell. No one will bury them.

As they lay dead, the people of the earth will celebrate. The Anti-Christ will have finally destroyed two of his greatest enemies. Mankind no longer needs to fear the fire, drought and plagues which these two used to torment the earth. However, this celebration will be short lived.

The Two Witnesses are A Married Couple

A married couple are ONE in the flesh. Since the two witnesses MUST be ONE in the Spirit, as are ALL of the saints, then the two witnesses must be TWO in the flesh. It is impossible that the two witnesses are a married couple.

PS: They are stoned to death, and yes, they are indeed two men.

The two Popes are not the witnesses and the one born (or commits the crime) on February 2nd is not the Beast.

The two Popes are not the Two Witnesses.

And the one born on or commits the crime on February 2nd is not the Beast.

Revelation 11:7-13

But the world (and people like Zerobubble) will believe that they are.....if they're assassinated!

Matthew 24:24

The Bible contradicts your assumptions about the Witnesses.

"And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them."

Only after their death are they 1 in the Spirit.

And I did not say WHEN they would be married.

Nor does the Bible say that the Witnesses are 2 men.....anywhere!

"And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven."

"The names of 7,000 servicemen serving with the Canadian Expeditionary Force (C.E.F.) and missing in action in Flanders, Belgium, are inscribed on the Menin Gate Memorial to the Missing in Ypres (Ieper)."

So if the Popes are assassinated in St. Peter's Square after reciting testimony (speech) and the above described earthquake hits the Menin Gate Memorial City and destroys the 7,000 inscribed names of the deceased 10th CEF battalion....maybe THEN you'll reconsider taking another look at what I'd said earlier...yes?

The two witnesses will be killed in Jerusalem. "where also their Lord was crucified." (Rev. 11:8)

The earthquake will also be in Jerusalem and that is where the 7000 people will die as a result.

I guess it depends on which Bible you're reading....doesn't it?

I see a lot of variations and I see just as many assumptions based on those ADDITIONS to the actual text.....

The addition, subtraction or mistranslation of a single word can and will radically change an actual event's meaning English.

Your own posts Mr. Wilson are assumptions based on whichever Bible that you're reading and probably what was passed onto you ....and what you were taught to believe.

I'm not gonna go into a long debate because it would take to long, but unless you have a copy of the original can count on owning a mistranslated Bible.

Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek, Latin.....and somewhere down the line English.

How many mistakes and mistranslations, additions or subtractions were made along the way?

The ONLY Bible that has NO mistakes is the one written in Hebrew.....the one God gave to Moses.

Has it ever occurred to anyone what the Catholic Church actually represents and the symbolism of it's teachers?

Father's are symbolism of God; 2 Corinthians 4:6

God dwell's in the darkness, it's the Light that comes from His voice.

Hence how a Catholic priest is dressed....a cassock (all black) with a white (voicebox) collar.

But a Father is subservient to the Bishop of Rome, who is the successor of Saint Peter; the Pope.

The Pope's attire is all white, head to toe, even though Peter was a sinner and denied Jesus 3 times. Peter is NOT the Light! Some may even angel of light? (But that's a whole other debate.....Matthew 16:23)

Using your own Bible Mr. Wilson...."where also their Lord was crucified."

If the Popes are assassinated, "their Lord" is St. Peter.....and NOT the Father.

And another assumption that I'm going to point out....

I was always taught that the Two Witnesses were going to be resurrected....

But that may not actually be true and may have been an assumption?

"And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them."

John 6:63

Based on this passage from John alone, the Spirit of Life from God....could in fact be a quotation from the Bible which "enters them and they stand on their feet".

Now, we can't know just exactly what John saw in his visions, but to make assumptions based on what we were TAUGHT to believe and not actually looking at what the Bible says (no matter which version of the NT that you're reading) is to be deceived.

Since we KNOW that the New Testament was in fact NOT written by God nor was it 'organized' by God or the Saints...then you can absolutely SURE that there are mistakes!

The New testament (divinely inspired or not), in it's entirety, was written and each of the books were grouped sinners. Many books were left out of the New Testament (another debate).

But my point here is....don't make assumptions based on what you were taught to believe. Because when the actual events happen, most people won't have a CLUE! They'll believe the anti-christ and the false prophet....because that's what they were taught to believe.


If you believe what the Bible says and not what it implies, then you need to take a very close LOOK at what it says.....and NOT for what YOU want it to be.

Most don't believe what it says and have brainwashed many into believing their own beliefs....that have been passed down from generation to generation and manipulated to the point of pure speculation.

The 2 witnesses are the Son of Man and His Bride to be.

The small city where they'll be slain is where the New Jerusalem will be!

One in the Spirit

God's Power isn't's LOVE.

The Two Witnesses are in LOVE!

And while expressing that love for each other, disasters kill their enemies...

There are hundreds more examples, to many to post here.
