Two Witnesses & The 7th Trumpet
Revelation 11 continues the interlude between the sixth and seventh trumpets. Then, the seventh angel blasts his trumpet sound followed by the return of Christ.
The chapter begins with God sanctifying the temple, the altar and the worshipers there while leaving the outer court to be desecrated by Gentiles. This is a prophecy of how the Antichrist and the Gentile nations will invade Jerusalem and defile the temple during the Great Tribulation in Daniel 9:27. God will respond by bringing back Moses and Elijah to plague the Earth and the water, to preach repentance in Jerusalem and to prophesy of the coming King and His Kingdom for three-and-a-half years.
When the seventh angel sounds his trumpet, thunder and loud voices of praise are heard in heaven. There will also be a great hailstorm accompanied by lightning. King Jesus returns after the storm by the end of the chapter. The first time King Jesus comes back will be after the Seventh Trumpet Plague (Rev 10:5-7). He will return alone, riding on clouds. Then, He will resurrect the righteous and rapture the elect to meet Him in the air (1 Thes 4:15-17) to reward us and to take us to heaven for the “Marriage Supper of the Lamb and the Church (Rev 19:7-9).” After the supper and after the Seventh Vial Plague, King Jesus will return to earth, but this time the Saints will be following close behind Christ. We will all be wearing white robes and riding white horses. Then, King Jesus will fight the battle at Armageddon and He will destroy those who destroy the Earth (Rev 19:11-21).
The Seven Seals are seven major events of the 7-Year Tribulation and they are mostly caused by the Satanic Trinity Beast. The Seven Trumpet Plagues are God’s response to the Satanic Tribulation. They are a three-and-a-half year campaign that begins in the middle of the Tribulation and ends at the last plague when Christ returns to gather the Saints. Then, God pours out Seven Vial Plagues of His Wrath, which are full strength and undiluted. The Vial Plagues will endure for a couple of weeks. After the last Vial Plague, King Jesus will return with us to fight the battle at Armageddon.
The Book of Revelation was written to seasoned Christians, who have an intimate relationship with King Jesus and who know His Word. The Revelation of King Jesus is the ultimate Bible book that completes everything we need to know about Christ so that our relationship can grow to the highest heights. This is why we study the fundamental books of the Bible; to help us decode and understand the revealed prophecies of King Jesus.
