Part 3 – 1260 Days

14 But the woman was supplied with the two wings of a giant eagle,

so that she might fly from the presence of the serpent into the desert (wilderness),

to the retreat where she is to be kept safe and fed for a time, and times, and half a time

(3.5 years or 1,260 days).

(Rev 12:14)

Daniel to Yahshua

YHWH also revealed the ‘day for a year’ prophetic principle to the prophet Daniel. YHWH used this principle four times in revealing the end of days and the prophetic events that will be fulfilled at that time.

The prophet Daniel were deeply disturbed, after YHWH had allowed him to see the future of His people and desired to understand what would be final outcome of the Israelites in the end of days. After having interceded, YHWH sent His angel Gabriel to show and reveal the future to Daniel. Daniel desired to know how long it would take before the sin of the people of Israel would be paid and how long it would be before Jerusalem and the temple would be restored, as was written: 5 Then I, Daniel, looked, and behold, there stood two others, the one on the brink of the river on this side and the other on the brink of the river on that side. 6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders? 7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, who was above the waters of the river, when he held up his right and his left hand toward the heavens and swore by Him Who lives forever...

It was at this time that YHWH, accurately revealed how long certain important prophetic events would take, revealing the counting of three different ‘day for a year’ time periods, in order to determine their exact time of fulfilment.

Time, Times, and a half a Time

The first time period that YHWH used was called a period of Time, Times, and a half a Time as was written: [Dan. 10:5.] “...that it shall be for a time, times, and a half a time [or three and one-half years]; and when they have made an end of shattering and crushing the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.”(Dan 12:7 Ampl) The text does not specify that this time period is only years, but are periods of time. The word here in Hebrew for time is ‘moade’.

This is the exact same word that is used to indicate an appointed feast. The word does not mean feasts, but appointed time periods, but do indirectly imply the time periods between feasts also. This time period could even imply counting from one year to another. Counting the ‘Times’ mentioned we find: The word ‘Times’ explains two times a specific time period (Times = Time period + Time period = 2 X Time period). Then the word ‘Time’ would imply only one Time period (1 X Time period) and ‘half a Time’ would imply half the time period of a ‘Time’. Thus, the time period called ‘Times, Time and half a Time’ implicitly imply 3.5 Times, which could be days, years or prophetic 7’s, 49’s, 70’s or 490’s or other time periods.

3.5 Years - 1260 Days

Specific time periods are mentioned in the bible, revealing YHWH’s ‘Times and seasons’ for the fulfilment of prophecy, which refers to specific prophetic time periods of fulfilment. 3.5 Years are 1260 days (360 days x 3.5), confirming that the days in the year are counted as 360 days in a year instead of 365.24 days. 3 Times in the book of “The Revelation of Yahshua,” Yahshua revealed the specific time period of 1260 days:

1260 Days – Giving birth to the Male child

The Woman in labour & dragon with 7 heads Firstly, the Lord Yahshua revealed to the apostle John that a woman would have to flee into the wilderness for 1260 days for safe keeping, saying: 5 And she brought forth a male Child, One Who is destined to shepherd (rule) all the nations with an iron staff (scepter), and her Child was caught up to God and to His throne. [Ps. 2:8, 9; 110:1, 2.] 6 And the woman [herself] fled into the desert (wilderness), where she has a retreat prepared [for her] by God, in which she is to be fed and kept safe for 1,260 days ( 42 months; three and one-half years).(Rev 12:5-6 Ampl) It was prophesied that a male child would be born: 6 For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace. [Isa. 25:1; 40:9-11; Matt. 28:18; Luke 2:11.] 7 Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from the [latter] time forth, even forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. [Dan. 2:44; I Cor. 15:25-28; Heb. 1:8.] (Isa 9:6-7 Ampl) Yahshua was caught up into heaven 40 days after His resurrection from the dead. Only after Yahshua was caught up, 40 years later, was the city of Jerusalem surrounded and both the city and the temple burnt down, the Jewish having to flee to the mountains. After this, the Jews were partially blinded and were dispersed out of their land and into the whole world. This prophecy, however, was only partially fulfilled, and awaits the day when Yahshua will sit on David’s throne, ruling over His subjects, from Jerusalem, on earth, as was prophesied: 6 Yet have I anointed, installed and placed My King firmly on My holy hill of Zion. 7 I will declare the decree of the Lord: He said to Me, You are My Son; this day, I declare, I have begotten You. [Heb. 1:5; 3:5, 6; II Pet. 1:17, 18.] 8 Ask of Me, and I will give You the nations as Your inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth as Your possession. 9 You shall break them with a rod of iron ; You shall dash them in pieces like potters' ware. [Rev. 12:5; 19:15.] (Ps 2:6-9 Ampl)

Although this prophecy does refer to Yahshua who was resurrected from the dead and ascended to heaven 40 days later, this prophecy also refers to another time in the future, perfectly synchronised with Yahshua’s ‘times and seasons.’ The Lord Yahshua, who knows the hearts of all men, rebuked the church of Thyatira for allowing the spirit of Jezebel to subtly seduce His people, through control and manipulation, warning them to repent, otherwise they will be cast on a bed of suffering, having to pass through the great tribulation, saying: 23 And I will strike her children, her proper followers dead, thoroughly exterminating them. And all the assemblies or churches shall recognize and understand that I am He Who searches minds, the thoughts, feelings, and purposes and the inmost hearts.( Rev 2:23 Ampl) To those who overcame this spirit of Jezebel, in His church, Yahshua gave an awesome promise, saying: 25 Only hold fast to what you have until I come . 26 And he who overcomes, is victorious and who obeys My commands to the very end , doing the works that please Me , I will give him authority and power over the nations; 27 And he shall rule them with a sceptre (rod) of iron , as when earthen pots are broken in pieces, and his power over them shall belike that which I Myself have received from My Father; [Ps. 2:8, 9.] 28 And I will give him the Morning Star . (Rev 2:25-28 Ampl) Thus, the Overcomers will also: “... shepherd or rule all the nations with an iron staff (scepter)...” just like Yahshua.

Thus, the male child that the woman, gave birth to, through suffering, also refers to the sons of God, who will rule and reign with the Anointed One – Yahshua, as was prophesied: 17 And if we are His children, then we are His heirs also: heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ , sharing His inheritance with Him ; only we must share His suffering if we are to share His glory. 18 But what of that? For I consider that the sufferings of this present time, this present life, are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us! 19 For even the whole creation, all nature, waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God's sons to be made known , waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship. 20 For the creation or nature was subjected to frailty, to futility, condemned to frustration, not because of some intentional fault on its part, but by the will of Him Who so subjected it - yet with the hope [Eccl. 1:2.] 21 That nature or creation itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and corruptionand gain an entrance into the glorious freedom of God's children. 22 We know that the whole creation of irrational creatures has been moaning together in the pains of labor until now. [Jer. 12:4, 11.] 23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have and enjoy the firstfruits of the Holy Spirit,a foretaste of the blissful things to come, groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies, from sensuality and the grave, which will reveal our adoption, our manifestation as God's sons. 24 For in this hope we were saved. (Rom 8:17-24 Ampl) This is an awesome revelation, which was revealed to the apostle Paul. For, according to Paul, the time when the male child will be caught up, is the time when our bodies will be redeemed from sin, corruption and death.

The word, in Greek, for ‘caught up’ is ἁρπάζω or harpazō, announced har-pad'-zo. This word literally means: ‘to seize’ or ‘catch away’ or up, pluck, pull, ‘take by force.’ This is the word we refer to as ‘Rapture.’ Yahshua reveals how just after the Overcomers have been taken by force, the woman will be allowed to hide in the wilderness for a period of 1260 days.

The apostle Paul revealed how those who have overcome will be changed, saying: 51 Take notice! I tell you a mystery, a secret truth, an event decreed by the hidden purpose or counsel of God. We shall not all fall asleep in death, but we shall all be changed, transformed 52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the sound of the last trumpet call . For a trumpet will sound, and the dead in Christ will be raised imperishable (free and immune from decay), and we shall be changed (transformed). (1Cor 15:51-52 Ampl) Paul revealed that the catching away, by force, will occur at the last trumpet. This will be the last warning that the earth will receive, before the wrath of Yahshua will be released, and poured full strength into the cup of His wrath.

1260 days – Three Horns subdued

Secondly, 13 And when the dragon saw that he was cast down to the earth, he went in pursuit of the woman who had given birth to the male Child. 14 But the woman was supplied with the two wings of a giant eagle, so that she might fly from the presence of the serpent into the desert (wilderness), to the retreat where she is to be kept safe and fed for a time, and times, and half a time ( three and one-half years, or 1,260 days). [Dan. 7:25; 12:7.] 15 Then out of his mouth the serpent spouted forth water like a flood after the woman, that she might be carried off with the torrent. 16 But the earth came to the rescue of the woman, and the ground opened its mouth and swallowed up the stream of water which the dragon had spouted from his mouth. 17 So then the dragon was furious (enraged) at the woman, and he went away to wage war on the remainder of her descendants - [on those] who obey God's commandments and who have the testimony of Jesus Christ [and adhere to it and bear witness to Him].(Rev 12:13-17 Ampl) Yahshua revealed to the apostle that the nation of Israel would be cast into the wilderness, but would be protected on eagle’s wings. Yahshua also very specifically revealed that they would be in the wilderness for a period of 1260 days. Using the day-for-a-year principle, Yahshua revealed that they would be in the wilderness for 1260 years, from around the time they would be dispersed.

Antiochus Epiphanes IV

In order to understand when this prophecy started and when the Jewish people were sent into captivity, being protected for 1260 years, we need to remember that only through history or looking at former partial fulfilment of prophecy, can the future be more fully understood. The ‘other prince’ who came, who set up an idol in the temple, which was an abomination to YHWH, was Antiochus Epiphanes IV, as was prophesied: And the people of the other prince, who will come, will destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood; and even to the end there shall be war, and desolations are decreed.” This prince did not come, until three horns were not first subdued or uprooted. Alexander the Great’s kingdom was finally divided into four main areas, under four different kings. During Antiochus’ lifetime he subdued three of them and ruled the entire area of Alexander’s reign again.

Back

Caesar Titus (79-81 AD)

This prophecy was only partially fulfilled, because during the time of Yahshua, different Caesars also reigned. During the year 69AD, three Caesars were subdued and later replaced by Caesar Titus (79-81 AD) and later Domitian (81-96 AD) who burnt down the city and blamed the Christians and the Jews for doing it, starting a terrible persecution of Jews and Christians. It was during this same time that the book Revelations was given to the apostle John.

Back

Bishop Constantine the Great (306-337 AD)

This was also only another partial fulfilment of the prophecy, yet another time in the future would come, when three kings or rather kingdoms, would be subdued and completely uprooted. With the rise of the Roman Empire, and another religious empire arose, who had the same power as the Roman Empire and actually acted for the Roman Empire – The Bishop, as was prophesied: 11 Then I saw another beast rising up out of the land itself; he had two horns like a lamb, and he spoke (roared) like a dragon. 12 He exerts all the power and right of control of the former beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell upon it to exalt and deify the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed, and to worship him. (Rev 13:11-12 Ampl) The kingdom, with its king being the bishop, later became known as the Holy Roman Empire. Outwardly this kingdom was religious and peace-loving, but inwards it was a ferocious beast, which like a dragon would destroy any kingdom in its way. The Roman Empire divided into a western and eastern leg, with both Rome and Alexandria being the capitals of these Roman sub-kingdoms. Later, the capital moved to Constantinople, the Roman Empire being jointly ruled from these two cities.

Around 306 AD a new ruler arose, jointly ruling with Rome. At that time the ruler accepted a twisted form of Christianity, which mixed paganism with Christianity, in order to make it more acceptable to the pagans in that city. Not wanting to see Rome split, this new Caesar accepted a faith that would please all the people in his empire, making himself the religious ruler of the movement, yet acting as a king for the Roman Empire. This first religious king became known as the ‘Bishop of Rome’ and forced all to accept his new religion, forcing all Jews and Christians to lean towards paganism.

Emperor Justinian I (527 – 565 AD)

Emperor of the Byzantine Empire

For the next 200 hundred years war and persecution broke out against all who refused to accept Rome’s form of religion. Many war-like Germanic religious groups arouse, who fought against the rulership of the Roman Empire and its religious system of control. Different kingdoms arose between 476-554 AD to fight against Roman rulership: The Vandals, the Heruli the Ostragoths and Visigoths. The Ostragoths, had rulership over the east, which included Israel. The Vandals nearly brought the western leg of Rome to a fall. At that time Rome sent a general to overthrough the rulership of these kingdoms.

Back

Eastern Roman Empire (476–1453 AD)

As the Western Roman Empire declined during the 5th century, the richer Eastern Roman Empire would be relieved of much destruction, and in the mid 6th century the Eastern Roman Empire (generally today called the Byzantine Empire) under the Emperor Justinian I reconquered Italy and parts of Illyria from the Ostrogoths, North Africa from the Vandals, and southern Hispania from the Visigoths. The reconquest of southern Hispania was somewhat ephemeral, but North Africa served the Byzantines for another century, parts of Italy for another five centuries, and parts of Illyria even longer.

Back

Justinian I ( 527-565 AD )

Justinian I, Flavius Petrus Sabbatius Justinianus Augustus, (c. 482 – 14 November 565), commonly known as Justinian the Great, was Byzantine Emperor from 527 to 565. During his reign, Justinian sought to revive the Empire's greatness and re-conquered the lost western half of the classical Roman Empire.

One of the most important figures of Late Antiquity and the last Roman Emperor to speak Latin as a first language, [1] Justinian's rule constitutes a distinct epoch in the history of the Eastern Roman Empire. The impact of his administration extended far beyond the boundaries of his time and domain. Justinian's reign is marked by the ambitious but only partly realized renovatio imperii, or "restoration of the Empire". [2] This ambition was expressed by the partial recovery of the territories of the defunct Western Roman Empire. His general Belisarius swiftly conquered the Vandal Kingdom in North Africa, extending Roman control to the Atlantic Ocean. Subsequently Belisarius, Narses, and other generals conquered the Ostrogothic Kingdom, restoring Dalmatia, Sicily, Italy, and Rome to the Empire after more than half a century of barbarian control.

The prefectLiberius reclaimed most of southern Iberia, establishing the province of Spania. These campaigns re-established Roman control over the western Mediterranean, increasing the Empire's annual revenue by over a million solidi. [3] During his reign Justinian also subdued the Tzani, a people on the east coast of the Black Sea that had never been under Roman rule before. [4]

His reign also marked a blossoming of Byzantine culture, and his building program yielded such masterpieces as the church of Hagia Sophia, which was to be the center of Eastern Orthodox Christianity for many centuries.

A devastating outbreak of bubonic plague (see Plague of Justinian) in the early 540s marked the end of an age of splendor. The Empire entered a period of territorial decline not to be reversed until the ninth century.

Procopius provides the primary source for the history of Justinian's reign. The Syriac chronicle of John of Ephesus, which does not survive, was used as a source for later chronicles, contributing many additional details of value. Both historians became very bitter towards Justinian and his empress, Theodora. [5] Other sources include the histories of Agathias, Menander Protector, John Malalas, the Paschal Chronicle, the chronicles of Marcellinus Comes and Victor of Tunnuna. Justinian is considered a saint amongst Orthodox Christians, and is also remembered by some in the Lutheran Church on November 14. [6]

“Emperor Justinian I sent a Byzantine army under the skilful leadership of Belisarius, to reclaim the area that was taken by the Vandals from the Roman Empire. In his second attempt he overcame the Vandal king, in the Battle of Tricamarum, ending the Kingdom of the Vandals in 534 AD. The Leader of the Byzantine – western army of Italy, Belisarius, were the main conquer of all three of these Germanic tribes and their kings.”

10 kings over 2000 yearsBy the year 554 AD the last tribe, which was an irritation to the Roman Empire, started to be subdued. Form this time on the Roman Empire regained rulership over Israel and the Jewish people. From then on the Jewish people were consistently being oppressed by different people, whether it was the Roman Empire or Muslim Empires from the east, for a period of 1260 years, until a new ruler arose, who subdued the rulership of the Roman Bishop, under the pope – Napoleon Bonaparte, partially fulfilling the period of oppression under the Roman Empire, as was prophesied: 1 AS I stood on the sandy beach, I saw a beast coming up out of the sea with ten horns and seven heads . On his horns he had ten royal crowns or diadems and blasphemous titles or names on his heads. 2 And the beast that I saw resembled a leopard , but his feet were like those of a bear and his mouth was like that of a lion. And to him the dragon gave his [own] might and power and his [own] throne and great dominion. 3 And one of his heads seemed to have a deadly wound. But his death stroke was healed; and the whole earth went after the beast in amazement and admiration. 4 They fell down and paid homage to the dragon, because he had bestowed on the beast all his dominion and authority; they also praised and worshiped the beast, exclaiming, Who is a match for the beast, and, Who can make war against him? 5 And the beast was given the power of speech, uttering boastful and blasphemous words, and he was given freedom to exert his authority and to exercise his will during forty-two months (three and a half years) . [Dan. 7:8.] 6 And he opened his mouth to speak slanders against God, blaspheming His name and His abode, [even vilifying] those who live in heaven. 7 He was further permitted to wage war on God's holy people (the saints) and to overcome them. And power was given him to extend his authority over every tribe and people and tongue and nation, [Dan. 7:21, 25.] 8 And all the inhabitants of the earth will fall down in adoration and pay him homage, everyone whose name has not been recorded in the Book of Life of the Lamb that was slain in sacrifice from the foundation of the world. 9 If anyone is able to hear, let him listen: 10 Whoever leads into captivity will himself go into captivity; if anyone slays with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Herein is the call for the patience and the faith and fidelity of the saints (God's people). [Jer. 15:2.] (Rev 13:1-10 Ampl) Yahshua also revealed that this beast, the western leg of the Roman Empire, would be given a deadly wound, but would recover under the rulership of Justinian I. Yahshua confirmed to John that His people, both Jews and Christians would be overcome by the Roman Empire, jointly ruled, with the Holy Roman Empire, ruling over them for a period of 42 months, until Napoleon Bonaparte’s kingdom ended.

1260 days – The Two Witnesses

Lastly, Yahshua also revealed another 1260 year period. This would be fulfil a very specific ministry that would last the same very specific prophetic period of time, as Yahshua ministered on the earth, as was prophesied: 1 A REED as a measuring rod was then given to me, shaped like a staff, and I was told: Rise up and measure the sanctuary of God and the altar of incense, and number those who worship there. [Ezek. 40:3.] 2 But leave out of your measuring the court outside the sanctuary of God; omit that, for it is given over to the Gentiles (the nations), and they will trample the holy city underfoot for 42 months (three and one-half years). [Isa. 63:18; Zech. 12:3.] And I will grant the power of prophecy to My two witnesses for 1,260 ( 42 months; three and one-half years), dressed in sackcloth. (Rev 11:1-2 Ampl) This prophecy is also awesome in its interpretation, referring to all the different aspects, which we have already touched on: The temple and its destruction; the period that the people of God will be ruled over by the gentiles, i.e. Roman Empire, Muslims ext.

Yahshua revealed to John that he must rise and measure the temple, but he must not measure the outer court. The dimensions of the House or ‘Hekal’ therefore being a prophetic type pointing to specific prophetic time periods once again, as was given to Moses. This is another large topic which will not be handled here.

Taking the ‘day-for-a-year’ principle we find that Yahshua revealed to John that His word would be preached during this troublesome time of 1260 years, by two witnesses, still holding fast to His word and His commands. Who are these two witnesses? During this time there were two groups of people that would still preach the truth of the Patriarchs and the message of the Messiah – The Jews and the true Christians, as was revealed to John: 17 So then the dragon was furious and enraged at the woman, and he went away to wage war on the remainder of her descendants - on those who obey God's commandments and who have the testimony of Jesus Christand adhere to it and bear witness to Him.(Rev 12:17 Ampl) Here, Yahshua reveals, who will prophetically continue to bear witness for His Name sake, even to the point of death. Many reformist movements arose during this time to oppose the Catholic Church and its system of political state religion.

When Napoleon Bonaparte arose, all who were preaching the word of God was persecuted by the Roman Catholic Church, who claimed they were God’s church on the earth, and that they had God’s authority to execute those who would not adhere to their doctrine of twisted beliefs.

This ministry of the two witnesses points directly to the ministry of Yahshua, glorifying Him, as the true Messiah and King of Israel. How do we know that Yahshua’s ministry was 3.5 years?

YHWH revealed to the prophet Daniel, saying: until the coming of the Anointed One, a Prince, shall be seven weeks of years and sixty-two weeks of years;... 26 And after the sixty-two weeks of years shall the Anointed One be cut off or killed and shall have nothing and no one belonging to and defending Him. 27 And he shall enter into a strong and firm covenant with the many for one week seven years. And in the midst of the week he shall cause the sacrifice and offering to cease, for the remaining 3.5 years; (Dan 9:27 Ampl) YHWH revealed to Daniel that the ministry of the coming Messiah, would start after 69 weeks. Then He, Yahshua, will make a one week covenant with many, but in the midst of the week, 3.5 years later, His ministry would end, being killed, but not for Himself.

Yahshua proclaimed to the Jewish people that no sign would be given them, except the sign of Jonah,: “...For even as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. [Jonah 1:17.] 41 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, Someone more and greater than Jonah is here! [Jonah 3:5.] (Matt 12:40-41 Ampl) Not only did Yahshua have a 3.5 ministry, but He was three full nights and days in the grave. He rose 3.5 days later, early the next morning before the day dawned, on the first day of the week.

The ministry of these two prophets, who will be sent in the last week, will also suddenly, abruptly be cut short, just like Yahshua’s ministry, by their death, as was prophesied: 7 But when they have finished their testimony and their evidence is all in, the beast (monster) that comes up out of the Abyss (bottomless pit) will wage war on them, and conquer them and kill them . [Dan. 7:3, 7, 21.] 8 And their dead bodies [will lie exposed] in the open street (a public square) of the great city which is in a spiritual sense called [by the mystical and allegorical names of] Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. [Isa. 1:9.] 9 For three and a half days men from the races and tribes and languages and nations will gaze at their dead bodies and will not allow them to be put in a tomb. 10 And those who dwell on the earth will gloat and exult over them and rejoice exceedingly, taking their ease and sending presents [in congratulation] to one another, because these two prophets had been such a vexation and trouble and torment to all the dwellers on the earth. 11 But after three and a half days , by God's gift the breath of life again entered into them, and they rose up on their feet, and great dread and terror fell on those who watched them. [Ezek. 37:5, 10.] 12 Then the two witnesses heard a strong voice from heaven calling to them, Come up here! And before the very eyes of their enemies they ascended into heaven in a cloud. [II Kings 2:11.] (Rev 11:7-12 Ampl) These two prophets will also have a 3.5 year ministry and will also rise from the dead, 3.5 days later, just like Yahshua did, only was without sin. Yahshua quantify the exact time period that these two prophets will be ministering on the earth, before Yahshua, as 1260 days.

The day and the hour that no one knows

According to Hebrew tradition, two witnesses are needed to establish a matter. The feast of trumpets cannot commence before two witnesses have appeared in Jerusalem, witnessing the new moon, confirming the beginning of the seventh month, Tishri 1, pointing not only to the Feast of trumpets, but perfectly re-synchronising the ‘times and seasons’ one last time, before Yahshua comes to take away His bride from the earth.

The term – “the day and the hour that no one knows” was synonymously used with the day when the first sliver of the new moon is expected, on the first day of the seventh month – The feast of trumpets.

After the two witnesses have completed their 1260-day ministry; 3.5 days after the two witnesses was killed, they will be resurrected from the dead and will be caught away and ascend into heaven in a cloud, as was prophesied: 12 Then the two witnesses heard a strong voice from heaven calling to them, Come up here! And before the very eyes of their enemies they ascended into heaven in a cloud. [II Kings 2:11.] (Rev 11:7-12 Ampl) Immediately after the two witnesses have been caught up before the throne of Yahshua, like Enoch and Elijah was, the last trumpet will blow, as was prophesied: 13 And at that very hour there was a tremendous earthquake and one tenth of the city (Jerusalem) was destroyed or fell; seven thousand people perished in the earthquake, and those who remained were filled with dread and terror and were awe-struck, and they glorified the God of heaven. 14 The second woe (calamity) has passed; now the third woe is speedily to come. 15 The seventh angel then blew his trumpet , and there were mighty voices in heaven, shouting, The dominion, kingdom, sovereignty, rule of the world has now come into the possession and become the kingdom of our Lord and of His Christ, the Messiah, and He shall reign forever and ever , for the eternities of the eternities! [Ps. 22:28; Dan. 7:13, 14, 27.] (Rev 11:13-15 Ampl) From the moment the last trumpet blew, the Lord Yahshua will start to take His rulership, starting to reign with the Overcomers, now ruling and reigning with Him, over His subjects of wrath.

Immediately, after the two witnesses had completed their 1260-day witness, warning and prophesying to the world and its inhabitants of the wrath of YHWH to come, that if they do not repent and accept Yahshua, living a lifestyle of righteousness, then the wrath of Yahshua will be released and the seven bowls of His wrath will be poured out on the earth. From then on, Yahshua will start to punish the nations with a rod of iron, dashing them to piece like a potter’s ware, as was prophesied: 18 And the heathen, the nations raged, but Your wrath, retribution, indignation came , the time when the dead will be judged and Your servants the prophets and saints rewarded - and those who revere and fear Your name, both low and high and small and great - and the time for destroying the corrupters of the earth . [Ps. 2:1.] 19 Then the sanctuary of God in heaven was thrown open, and the ark of His covenant was seen standing inside in His sanctuary; and there were flashes of lightning, loud rumblings (blasts, mutterings), peals of thunder, an earthquake, and a terrific hailstorm. [I Kings 8:1-6.](Rev 11:18-19 Ampl) And 1 THEN I saw another wonder, sign, token, symbol in heaven, great and marvellous, warning of events of ominous significance: There were seven angels bringing seven plagues, afflictions, calamities, which are the last, for with them God's wrath or indignation is completely expressed, reaches its climax and is ended. [Lev. 26:21.] ( Rev 15:1 Ampl)
