    Revelation 11 "Come up here"

    Revelation 11:11 But after the three and a half days the breath(b) of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them. 12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.

    13 At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.

    14 The second woe has passed; the third woe is coming soon.


    b. Revelation 11:11 Or Spirit (see Ezek. 37:5,14)

    This is the input from amazingdiscoveries.org.

    The scene here is of the “two witnesses” as they are given new “life” and exalted in the sight of their enemies. After the French Revolution, protestant Europe looked back on its extremes with disgust, and sought with fervent effort to elevate the Bible to greater prominence than ever. The British Bible society, established in 1804, and the American Bible Society, established in 1816, began distributing large numbers of Bibles. In 1804 the total number of Bibles in circulation was about four million in over fifty languages. Today there are billions of Bibles in hundreds of languages making it the world’s most widely circulated book.

    This is from blueletterbible.org.

    All the cameras of earth will trained upon the 2 witnesses.

    a) Imagine the terror of those rejoicing in their pompous belief that there is no God, when the dead bodies of the 2 witnesses begin to move, then stand up!!!

    b) And if that's not enough, the Lord calls them home, audibly, then takes them home visibly!!!

    (1) No wander men's hearts fail them from fear!

    An earthquake follows and kills 7 thousand (men) in Jerusalem alone. This does not include women and children!

    a) If this is 1/10 as the text says it is, the population could well be over 300,000 people!

    b) The remaining that were affected, they "gave glory to the God of heaven"

    (1) Unfortunately Rev. 16:11 tell us that they "blaspheme the God of heaven" once again as they begin to experience His Judgments again.

    (2) There is a lot of difference in being "sorry" and truly repentant!

    (3) The 14th verse gives us a clue to the human heart: Revelation 11:14 The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly. (NKJV)

    (a) When the heat is off it is so easy to go on about our business!

    Well, this part hasn't happened on TV. I figure that's how we'll witness this.... it'll go live... a lot like the time the news broke and we saw our president slump over in a car while his wife tried to escape..... a lot like that time when the news broke to show helicopters airlifting people out of Vietnam at the end of that era.......a lot like that time the news broke in to show us two buildings with planes sticking out of them...... I'm sure if it were to happen today... people would walk around screaming fake news... but wait... this is after all those seals have been opened and there's probably no power for the TV.... wouldn't it be wild if all the TV's suddenly powered up and showed the witnesses being called up and then went black afterward.... God probably won't do it that way...

    After all.... we are not familiar with dead people suddenly getting up..... we are not familiar with the sound of a heavenly voice booming.... we are not familiar with the site of two men floating in air.... rising.... rising... disappear.... it has to be computer generated graphics..... dead people only walk when there's computer generated graphics, lots of make up.... and plenty of smoke and mirrors.... it just doesn't happen.... it's impossible.... maybe that's why the earthquake comes immediately after the removal of those two witnesses. It's like a punctuation mark.... like a "go ahead continue on about your stupid human ways.... and see what happens to you" punctuation mark.
