Revelation Chapter 11
Revelation 11:1-6 Introduction
The Two Witnesses! This passage is our introduction of the two witnesses and another interlude to show us in greater detail what God is doing and how it applies to us. John is given the task of measuring the Temple to see its dimensions as well as to see who is really worshiping God and who is not—those who are His in word and deed versus those who are the pretenders and manipulators.

What does Revelation 11:1-6 mean to us now?
The controversies that arise in Revelation are exemplified in this text. As many commentators and speculators focus on who these two witnesses can be, the conjectures abound. The good, prevailing theories are that these are two humans who are faithful and God empowers them as courageous examples to the Church.
Revelation 11:7-14 Introduction
This passage describes many themes and metaphors from the Old Testament, such as the visions of Zachariah and the “kingdoms” in Daniel. We have to realize that one of the main, interpretive aspects of Revelation is that it borrows heavily from the entire Old Testament, not just from Daniel. If you do not know the Old Testament, you will not know much about the New Testament, especially Revelation and thus read into it what we think and not gain what is actually there.

What does Revelation 11:7-14 mean to us now?
The two witnesses model to us what is important in our Christian life—and that is faithfulness. We must exhibit a willingness to withstand and endure persecution and to face our fears while looking to our Lord. If not, we will look to our fears and turn our face from our Lord; that will only bring us haplessness and distress.
Revelation 11:15-19 Introduction
The Seventh Trumpet: The seventh angel now sounds his trumpet and loud voices echoing from the heavens proclaim that the entire world has now become a part of the Kingdom of God as Christ assumes His power and position. The twenty- four elders fall prostrate, worshipping and giving thanks and reverence to the Lord. But, the woe commences too, as His wrath is let out to judge and destroy the evil and the wicked, and His grace is poured out to reward His faithful. He is the One who looks for the faithful and holy ones who have placed Him first, even in the midst of trials and troubles. Then, the world shakes as the precious Ark of the Covenant is exposed, displaying a spectacular show of eminence and power.

Keep hope and Christ in mind, as well as the fact that God is understandable and approachable! In devastating times of stress and war, to fathom something such as the Temple or our Church being destroyed would make it seem that God had lost. But, the message here is that of victory. It is a call to trust in Him and continue our walk in faith. God is still in control and He does win. He allows things to happen as consequences for sin yet in His perfect plan, all things will come together to give Him glory (Psalm 2; Rom. 8).

Love the series very good information
unlocking the 2 witnesses. many bible scholars make mistake by saying the two will be found in isreal! Remember john saw a new jerusalem! Rev 11.8 records the death of the two at a place SYMBOLICALLY called sodom and egypt. Note the word symbolically. Now sodom is known for immoral and homos and egypt a phoroah or wicked king, snakes and other rituals. And daniel 4:4 a tree fell during the reign of a wicked king known as king nebuchadnezzar. Now i a zimbabwean and we have an unwanted king, we had a tree that fell last year which was 200years old the tree had strong spiritual implications and satanism, homosexual and other rituals are rife. Paul letter to the corinthians-corinthians was a city of immorals, trade, religious diversity and behold zimbabwe we see all these.further more paul in 1 corinthians 12 saw a man caught in 3rd heaven 14 years ago and he’s even proud on behalf of this man now a zimbabwean prophet saw moses in his young that makes this zimbabwean prophet elijah mantle! If we ask when he saw moses if it is 14 years back that also means he was seen by paul in 1 corinthians 12. Corinthians was a city of immorals, trade and religious diversity and we saw all these and anglican splitted! John saw a jezebel and now calls herself a prophetes rev 2.20 behold we had a gospel singer left for the UK after having immoral marriages btwn pastors and now calls herself prophetess

Here is an example from my synopsis on the back cover of my book which immediately proves Jesus’s (Rev.11:8) Two Witnesses are the Father and Holy Spirit.
“That which immediately proves the Two Witnesses are the Father and Holy Spirit, who are God, is the fact that Jesus who is also God, God the Son, is called the exact same things they are, a Witnesses, an Olive Tree, a Lampstand, and a Prophet, making a total of;
