Revelation Chapter #11

 

Chapter 11 deals with the time period concerning the closing of the great Tribulation Period. This chapter has a total of 19 verses, the first 14 are speaking to us of the period between the 6th and the 7th Trumpets. The last 5 verses are concerning the sounding of the 7th Trumpet of God. In chapter 10 the Scriptures mentioned 3 Personalities yet to this point in time only one has been spoken of and that was the Angel who held the ‘Little Book’ and stood upon the Earth and the Sea. This Angel was claiming all of creation for the Creator of all things as it is only He (God) who has the right to do so. In these first 14 verses we will discover the other two Personalities spoken of in chapter 10. These other two are the ‘two Witnesses’ that will testify for God and against humans sins here on Earth after they come down from Heaven to Jerusalem. There is a TV program called ‘Sleepy Hollow’ that my wife and I like to watch that is ‘very loosely’ concerning the ‘end of days’ where the two lead actors are the ‘two Witnesses’. I like the show but I do worry a bit that some folks may think the program is actually Scripture based concerning God’s two Witnesses and reality is that the program and the Scriptures have nothing to do with each other.

 

Please bare with me now as we go through these 19 verses, this is a very informative chapter that I believe will help people to understand the truth behind what is going to happen.

“And there was given to me (the Apostle John) a reed like unto a rod: And the Angel (the mighty Angel from chapter 10) stood, saying, rise, and measure the Temple of God and the Altar and them that worship therein.”

“But the Court that is outside the Temple leave out and do not do not measure it. For it is given unto the Gentiles (non-Jews): They (Gentiles) shall tread under foot the Holy City (the New Jerusalem which will come down to Earth from Heaven) for forty-two months.”

“And I (God) will give power to My two Witnesses and they shall prophesy (preach) one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in Sackcloth.”

“These (Witnesses) are the two Olive Trees and the two Candlesticks standing before the God of the Earth.”

“And if any man will hurt them, fire will come forth out of their mouth and devour their enemies. If any man will try to hurt them, he will in this manner be killed.”

“These (2 men) will have the power to shut heaven so that it will not rain in the days of their prophecy. And they will have power over the waters to turn them to blood and to smite the Earth with all plagues, as often as they wish.”

“And when they have finished their testimony, the Beast (Devil) that ascends out of the Bottomless Pit (Hell) shall make war against them (the 2 Witnesses) and shall overcome them and kill them.”

“And their dead bodies shall lay in the street of the great city (Jerusalem), which is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.”

“And the people of all the kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and a half and shall not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves.”

“And they that dwell upon the Earth shall rejoice over them (their dead bodies), and make merry and shall send gifts one to another; because these two Prophets had tormented them that dwell on the Earth.”

“And after three and a half days the Spirit of life from God shall enter into them and they shall stand upon their feet and great fear shall fall upon them that see them.”

“And they shall hear a great voice from Heaven saying unto them (the two Witnesses), come up hither. And they shall ascend up to Heaven in a cloud and their enemies shall see them.”

“And in the same hour there shall be a great earthquake and a tenth part of the city (Jerusalem) shall fall. And in the earthquake seven thousand men shall be slain. And the rest shall be frightened and they shall give glory to the God of Heaven.”

“The second woe is past and behold the third woe shall come quickly.”

“And the seventh Angel sounded (his trumpet) and there were great Voices in Heaven, saying, the Kingdoms of the world have become the Kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever.”

“And the four and twenty Elders which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces and worshiped God.”

“Saying, we give thee thanks, O Lord God almighty, which is and was and are to come. Because You have taken to Thee Thy great power and has reigned.”

“And the Nations were angry and Thy (God’s) wrath is come. And the time of the dead that they should be judged. And that You (God) will give reward unto Your servants the Prophets and to the Saints and to them that fear Thy Name, small and great. And You (God) will destroy them which destroy the Earth.”

“And the Temple of God was opened in Heaven and there shall be seen in His Temple the Ark of His Testament. And there were lightnings and voices and thunderings and an earthquake and great hail.”

 

The Protestant Bible that most of us know as the King James Bible was authorized by King James of England in 1611. There were many books that were considered to be canonized (included) in the Bible that were turned down. Different ‘Christian’ religions like the Catholic Church added some of these other books in what we refer to as the Apocrypha. It is not just the Catholic Church that has chosen to add some ‘uncanonized’ books to their Bibles. This is true of the Eastern Orthodox Church, the Cryptic Christians of Egypt and several others.

 

There are two of these books that I would like to bring to your attention for a moment. These two are called the Book of Enoch (seventh in lineage from Adam) which even Jesus (Yeshua) quoted, and the Book of Nicodemus. These two Books do give us information in regards to these two Witnesses of God. I want you to think about something for a moment please. Jesus Himself was murdered, all of the Apostles except John were murdered, but he did die, just about all of the Old Testament Prophets were murdered, but they all did die. Everyone in human history has died, except for two men. These two men were ‘called up to Heaven’ while they were still alive. These two men were Enoch and then Elijah. I have found no Scripture that says the two Witnesses are these two men so this is only my belief but if I was a betting man (which I am not) I would bet a cold six pack of Pepsi that it is these two men. Think about it for a moment, both of these Witnesses that came down to Earth from Heaven will end up being murdered also, thus completing the cycle of life and death. It is possible that my thoughts on this are incorrect, but I believe there is a huge chance that I am correct. Does it really matter if I am right on this issue? No, not really, it is just input for you to consider if you so choose to.

 

Well friends, that is all for tonight concerning the 11th chapter of Revelation, I hope you enjoyed your read. If you have any questions please leave me a comment and I will get back with you, usually within 24 hours. I hope you are having a good week, stay safe, God’s blessings to you and all of your loved ones, shalom.

Islam Is Not A Religion: The World Must Quit Treating It Like It Is One!

 

As most of the world knows, former American President George W. Bush was and is clueless on most everything. Shortly after 9/11 happened in 2001 this idiot got on national television and called Islam a “great and peaceful religion,” as I said, clueless. Islam, is it great? In size of worshipers world-wide, yes it has a “huge” group of followers. Does having a billion followers make it a religion? Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Trump have many millions of followers, does that make them a ‘God’ or a religion? Lord knows that I hope no one considers either one of these people “a God.” Is Islam a religion or is it simply a “group” of people who you honestly consider as being “peaceful?” When you think of the word peaceful is one of the first things or words that comes to your mind the word “Islam?” Now, strike three on Mr. Bush, is him calling Islam a “religion.” Islam is not a religion, not unless you believe that a large group of people who ‘totally unknowingly’ are worshiping the Devil himself  as being a religion? Here in America there are people who ‘knowingly’ on purpose worship Satan, they are total and complete idiots, there is no excuse for that level of stupidity. The people who worship Allah are worshiping the Devil but in their defense, they do not know that and I do believe that the vast majority, (at least 98%) if they knew it would stop worshiping Allah instantly. Being anti-Islam is not a case of being racist! Being racist would be if you hate everyone who is Muslim or Persian just because they are Muslim or Persian!

 

Islam is a ‘way of thought’ which creates a way, a belief of actions where those beliefs generate their followers to do what they do. Here in America there is a group of people who say they are Christian and they observe the Cross of Jesus, even though they burn it as a ritual. Do these folks who are racist against anyone who is non-white and non-Protestant make them followers of Jesus? Do you commit violence, including murder against others and believe you are doing God’s will? Do you look at people who are in any way different from yourself whether in skin color, place of birth, or of a different ‘religion’  and believe that you not only have the right to kill them but that your “God” demands that you do so?

 

Here in America there are idiots whom seem to congregate in packs in Washington D.C., Hollywood and New York City who have the Nations ‘mouth pieces’ (politics and the media) who should all be required to live in southern Israel as consequence’s for their ignorance. Islam, which is not a religion because to be a true religion it must be worshipers of God, so, they are a ‘movement’ not a religion. Now I am forced to say the most harsh words of this post because this blog-site is only about truth and if I choose to speak other than the truth I will have to answer to God for that at my judgement before the Throne of Christ. What I have to say is that Islam is not a religion, it is a Demonic Cult that must be forbidden in every Nation on Earth. What all non-Islamic Nations must do if they ever wish to have their crime rates go down is to force all people who worship any sect of Islam to be deported to their Nation of origin. I am not advocating that anyone of these people be physically harmed in any way. The governments of the world should compensate these deported people for the property they had to give up. They must be treated as wayward brothers and sisters but never ever be allowed into any Nation except an Islamic Nation. Otherwise, if we harm them then we are in effect being evil and evil has nothing to do with the real God. If one of these persons have a weapon they are using against you, then you have every right, in fact you are obligated, to protect yourself, your family and your community.

 

Islam will be a part of this world we all live in up until the Second Advent of Christ. It will not be wiped off the face of the Earth before then just as the Devil will not be put away before then either. Every Mosque in your country must be wiped off the face of the Earth as these are the Thrones of Demons. I am not naive, I know that this is not going to happen. Here in America and in Europe the ignorant and some times evil politicians are determined to create more safe havens for the followers of this cult to use for attacks’ upon their populations to destroy and to take over their own Nations. Do not be mistaken, this ‘Cult’ is at war with the whole world and that does mean both against your country and you and your loved ones! Islam is not a ‘religion’ and it must not be given any safe haven because they are at war with you right now. For those who stay silent and choose to stick their head in the sand, this will not save you from the evil that is about to fall upon you. Either you stand up as a human being or you are going to be slaughtered like a rabid dog. Do you remember an American man named Malcolm-X? For most of his life he preached hate and violence by any means to create a Islamic Nation out of America. Mr. Malcolm-X was given grand tours in the Middle-East by Islamic leaders, this is while he was preaching ‘true Islam’. Within a couple of months before his murder he changed his message to a tolerant message of kindness, not hate. That event cost him his life when three armed Islamic men burst into one of his speeches and shot him to death. True Islam will not tolerate any peace with ‘non-believers’. I do not personally believe that the populace is wise enough to wake up before they are literally putting their head in these people’s hands. I can only pray that the world wakes up before their dead bodies are left in the streets to rot at the hands of the followers of this cult which has nothing to do with God except for the fact that they hate God just as they hate you.
