    Revelation 11:3 If The Rapture dies not happen until The Two Witnesses get Raptured, then does that mean that The Body of Christ will need to go through the plagues and bloody waters at Their Commands?
  • Andy G van den Berg on Revelation 11
    No believer has ever dared to judge himself and claim to be 'Born Again'. The Word of God teaches us that you must be 'Born Again'. Your experience is typical of a religious experience based on man-made doctrines. It is also referred to as self-transformation (2 Corinthians 11:13-15). You are still wearing the same garment that by nature you were born with but were not transformed by God.

    Our message therefore remains the same: Ye must repent. The repentance process and the transformation and conversion by God takes many years as God teaches all those that come to Him. God taught a host of approximately two million people for forty years. Only Joshua and Caleb were left of the original group that crossed the Red Sea. All the rest died in the wilderness. How long the transformation and conversion process takes depends on the journey of every person. Dianne & I started our journey in 1984 and still submit our bodies as a living sacrifice each day for the transformation and renewal of our minds (Romans 12:1,2). We know, we are slow learners.

    Like every other religious experience your 'truck' experience was just your high-minded thinking. That is not how a person becomes 'Born of God'.

    By attending a man-made institution a few hours a week (Acts 7:48; 17:24), does not mean that a person can make a claim that they are followers of Christ and 'Born Again'. That is falsehood, as in truth they follow after an image of a false god and a false Christ (Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; Galatians 4:8; Revelation 12:9). This is how Satan has transformed Himself into an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:13-15).

    You need not that any man teach you (Isaiah 54:13; 6:45; 1 John 2:27), It is only by revelation of God that you will come to know Christ (Daniel 12:4,9; Amos 3:7; Matthew 16:17; Luke 2:26; Romans 16:25; 1 Cor. 2:10; Galatians 1:16; Ephesians 3:3,5; Revelation 1:1). It is a narrow way that leadeth unto 'Life', and few there be that find it (Matthew 7:14).

    In His Service.

    Numbers 14 states that those under 20 years old survived with Caleb and Joshua for the forty years in the wilderness and did go into The Promise Land with Caleb and Joshua. Therefore, Caleb and Joshua had many with them. Later in years in the Promise Land a Remnant was saved too. Many of which were Saphardic Spanish Jews that chose not to go back to Israel after The Battle of Babylon.

    To SANDRA

    Please read Numbers 14:30,31; 15:30; 26:65; 32:12 and you will learn that the children that crossed the Jordan were the children of the new generation.

    Seek, and ye shall find (Matthew 7:7).

    Those under 20 years old were taught too for forty years in the wilderness. Yes, those over 20 years old did not cross over The Jordon, except fir Joshua and Caleb. The Law versus Grace. Law was given to understand grace. Jesus Christ fulfilled the law in His Crucifixion at Calvary and His Resurrection. Yes, we continue to confess sins that we commit after being Born Again in Christ. How does one become Born Again Sealed with The Holy Spirit Through Jesus Christ? If only we could see with God's Eyes who really do have The Actual Seal of The Holy Spirit Through a True Miracle Manifestation of This. Salvation belongs to God. We step out in faith and God performs The Miracle of Eternal Salvation In Christ to manifest in a human being. The Apostles' Creed, Nicene Creed, and Sinners' Prayer (The Sinners' Prayer amended to include that we are born eternally separated from God because of Adam's Sin and we need to be atonement At One Ment with God through The Grace of Jesus Christ with faith and true heartedness on our part. So it is to be in Christ, to continue to grow in Christ, and to be in Sabbath Rest in Christ. Good works do apply too. Not religiously spirited, but with a personal relationship heart attitude with God. Ask All Three of God The Father, God The Son, and God The Holy Spirit to abode in one's heart and soul is to be done after being in Christ.

    God can use a truck experience to prepare the hearts of folks to be fertile ground for how to be Born Again in Christ.

    It is like becoming a butterfly from being a worm. A new creation.
  • Carleton on Revelation 11
    Dear Readers, I want to be very clear, I found repentance and was made free of the burdens of my sins for at least a year and a half before the vision of the Lamb of God occurred while driving a truck on I-80 in Pennsylvania, the state of my birth.

  • Sandra - in Reply on Revelation 11
    Your experience is very personal. Do see The Apostles' Creed, Nicene Creed, and The Sinners' Prayer too. We are born separated from God because of Adam's sin. We need to be atonement at one ment with God through grace of Jesus Christ. We need to be sealed with The Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ. In Christ. When we commit mortal sins, we need to rededicate and pray tbe same prayers as said. By grace with faith through Jesus Christ. Ask All Three Persons of God into your heart and soul too. God bless.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Revelation 11
    Until the need to share my testimony today became apparent, I had never before correlated my born again experience with the vision of the Lamb. Both experiences took place in a very similar truck. Both trucks were single axle delivery trucks with fruit. Both experiences happened in the very early morning before there was sunlight. The small difference was a year and a half, and that my born again experience I was in the back in the box part of the truck with the fruit, pouring my sins out by faith in the healing blood and sacrifice of Jesus Christ at Calvary, where I found my burdens of sin relieved and immediately a peace came into my heart which I understand as the Holy Spirit in me to this day. In the vision, I was driving the truck up front, thinking of the height, depth and breadth of the Kingdom of Christ when I was taken up in the waking vision while the truck continued driving down the highway heading West towards State College for deliveries.

    Salvation in Christ is The Seal of The Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ. How many really have The Seal of The Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ? How many will have Their Names Written in The Lamb's Book of Life?

    It is of the heart with repentance firstly. Nicene Creed applies. Apostles' Creed applies. The Sinners' Prayer applies. (All are born separated from God because of Adam's sin and need atonement At One Ment with God through Jesus Christ. We still do sin after sealed with The Holy Spirit. Therefore, confessing sins still applies and repentance of sins after being in Christ applies. Mortal sins are in need of rededication by doing the same Prayer of faith and grace of asking Jesus Christ into your heart and soul. None of this matters if it is not all done with one's heart.)

    Salvation belongs to The Lord. It is a miracle when one gets sealed with The Holy Spirit. God makes that manifest.
  • Carleton - in Reply on Revelation 11
    Dear Andy, Unlike what you believe as you have privately interpreted against me, the scriptures (judged outside of the hedge, the Bride of Christ) against my witness, which is the Holy Ghost, I will not be limited to your interpretation of the saved and non- saved by choosing by your will to project the God's Holy scriptures on me or others.

    Arguing is unfruitful.

    Matthew 12:33

    Either make the tree good, and his fruit good; or else make the tree corrupt, and his fruit corrupt: for the tree is known by his fruit.

    Guys, we are the fruit. Jesus is the Tree.

    I know. I'ts hard for me to see California burning. Today Yellowstone is having numerous small quakes.

    I think I hurt someone by being oblivious. I trust the Lord to help this pass.

    I guess warfare is bad because of the National Prayer?
  • Carleton - in Reply on Revelation 11
    Thank you! Regarding air quality here in the West it is terrible, there is ash everywhere. I haven't washed my hair yet from working outside and my hair with the sweat and ash is caked. We need for everyone to pray for rain and snow.

    God bless the prayers for the Western United States.

    It may not seem like it Mishael, and we may not agree on everything but I do listen to you as a brother in Christ.

    Mathew 24:3-36

    Mathew 24:36
  • Sandra on Revelation 11
    Revelation 9:15 NKJV cites that the four angels bound at The Euphrates River were prepared for the hour, day, month and year of killing one third of mankind.

    Revelation 9:15 KJV cites it like it could be a year, a month, a day, and an hour that The Battle of Armageddon could last that long.

    Therefore, Revelation 11:2 of the Gentiles treading under foot The Holy City for forty two months could happen after The Euphrates River dries up and after The Battle of Armageddon.

    So The Two Witnesses could be revived and raptured up before The Battle of Armageddon.

    Looking at all references to The Euphrates River and The Battle of Armageddon in The Book of Revelation, points to The Battle of Armageddon happening when Jesus Christ returns. Then comes the feast for the birds of the air to enjoy eating the dead which Jesus Christ conquered after He returns.

    The main question is are we supposed to be looking for The Two Witnesses in Golgatha where Jesus Christ was crucified next? Or are we supposed to be looking for The Euphrates River to dry up and then The Battle of Armageddon and then The Two Witnesses of Elijah and Elisa in Golgatha.

    I see it that the next event in line are The Two Witnesses, Elijah and Elisa. Therefore, The Euphrates River has to last until Jesus Christ returns. The Battle of Armageddon we will deal with it when Jesus Christ returns.
  • Stanjett - in Reply on Revelation 11
    The two witness don't have to be Elijah and Elisa. It don't say who they are. Maybe they are you and me. Would'nt that be something. I would be glad to be one. But it could be those two or maybe Enoch could be one, since he or Elijah never died on Earth. They were taken up to Heaven while they were still alive.
  • Sandra - in Reply on Revelation 11
    Thank You for Your reply. Elisa went up too without physical death. I got Elijah and Elisa from The King James Version following the footnotes of verses.
  • Alan - in Reply on Revelation 11
    I do not believe Elijah or Elisa are the witnesses. They are mentioned as one in the old testament and two in the new. Married couples were considered one in the old and two in the new. The only possibility is a married couple living in this age. Plus though they can appear in human form. Elisha and Elisa are in the incorruptible body, true death being not possible in that state.

    Much has been stated about the seven year time line, but it should be clear that the first three and a half years are the call for redemption with the world following the Beast and the Beast colluding with the false Messiah leading to the building of the false temple. This culminates with the need for the final stand of the witnesses in Jerusalem at the temple. After the witnesses we have a world wide civil war as many believe the witnesses about the false Beast, Messiah and temple and turn on them. This followed by three and a half years of strife leading to Armageddon. I have left the pre tribulation concept behind and here's why. First, if millions have died for Christ then why should we be any different, especially since many of us have been deceived and not beyond Earthly judgment of our poor decisions. Second no clear mention of this bail out for Christians actually exist in the Bible, just possible references. Third, why as Christians should we not want to help sinners when they need us most. Fourth and most clearly Jesus is definitely stated to come at the end of the tribulation at the time of the final battle. This is the one and only time he will come to announce he is the king of kings and to redeem the Earth forever with the day of the Lord beginning. I have come to the conclusion looking at Biblical teachings over the last 140 years and have realized a pre tribulation redemption of the body is a big selling tool for preachers and nothing else. As for me I would refuse to go and stay to help the sinners to mercy like I believe Jesus would. Not 'run away' like a coward.
  • Two witnesses - in Reply on Revelation 11
    Few people agree who the 2 Witnesses are.

    Long time ago I thought it would be Moses and Elijah = the Law and the Prophets.

    I believe through the internet everyone on earth will see the Two Witnesses on their tv or YouTube.

    Be born again; and use your TESTIMONY and tell others how you came to believe.

    Each individual testimony is powerful and if you give your testimony to the Lord of the Harvest (Jesus); he will lead you to people who are ready to hear the GOSPEL (virgin birth, sinless life, Crucifixion and death; and the Resurrection of Jesus.

    Just like in here.... have a comment you can add, to what someone expounds on a subject. It's that easy. Almost everyone will accept being prayed for. Why? Because life hurts often and everyone needs hope.

    Love turned inward is ego. Love turned outward, is Jesus.

    Revelation 16:12-16 Cite on The Battle of Armageddon and the Euphrates River dried up making a path for the kings from the east of The Euphrates River. Jesus Christ appears to be present too.

    Revelation 11:2 Gentiles treading foot in The Holy City for forty two months. Are these Gentiles of the Battle of Armageddon?
  • Sandra on Revelation 11
    Revelation 9:15 cites that the four angels in the Euphrates River were loosed and prepared for a year, month, day, and hour to kill a third of mankind. Does this mean that The Battle of Armageddon lasts that long?
  • Sandra on Revelation 11
    Revelation 9:13-21 cites the 6th Angel's trumpet of The Euphrates River being dried up and this is again a citing of The Battle of Armageddon.
  • Sandra on Revelation 11
    Does Revelation 11:2 happen after The Two Witnesses? The Gentiles tread under foot for forty and two months. Could this be after the Euphrates River dries up and these Gentiles of the east of it then take over the Holy City? Then Jesus Christ comes back? Then wins This Battle of Armageddon and the birds of the air enjoy their feast of these Gentiles?
  • Sandra on Revelation 11
    The Rapture could happen when The Two Witnesses are taken up after they are revived.

    The Battle of Armageddon happens when Jesus Christ returns. The Seven Trumpet blasts say this.

    The nations are taken to the Battle site of Armageddon. This is after the nations give their authority to the anti christ.

    Do the gentiles trample the outer courts before or after The Two Witnesses?
  • Sandra on Revelation 11
    The Two Witnesses are Elijah and Elisa.
  • Michelle Maanie on Revelation 11:18
    We think we will suffer no repercussions for the tonnes of plastic we dump into the oceans, the man-made climate change, the overpopulation, the destruction of the forests for greed? We can twist this verse to whatever we want it to mean in order to exculpate ourselves, but it's clear as glass: we will suffer unless we work to end our greed-driven, self-indulgent behavior. It's happening right now. We have to work with God's gifts to us, not destroy them for money. Unfortunately people worship money more than God.
  • The Earth Knows That it Will Be Burned Up - in Reply on Revelation 11:18
    2 Peter 3 < link

    There is no fixing the Earth. Too many scriptures point to the Lord setting it on fire. Even the Earth is being readied for Jesus's Return, at the 2nd Advent.

    *****

    9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

    10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise,

    and the elements shall MELT with fervent HEAT, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be BURNED up.

    11 Seeing then that all these things shall be dissolved, what manner of persons ought ye to be in all holy conversation and godliness,

    12 Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of God, wherein the heavens being on FIRE shall be dissolved, and the elements shall melt with fervent HEAT?

    13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.

    14 Wherefore, beloved, seeing that ye look for such things, be diligent that ye may be found of him in peace, without spot, and blameless.
