TRUMPETS/SHOFARS part 2

Trumpet 6:  Second Woe – part 2 the two witnesses.


Rev 11:1-2 And there was given me a reed like to a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given to the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.



Rod=shebet=scepter=sign of authority

Measure=middah=measure a portion  Portion or the groom’s inheritance given to the bride’s father. The bride price.


John was ordered to measure the covered portion of the Temple. Not the open air part. So John isn’t really measuring the Temple but the group of people “…them that worship theirin…” That group of people is His bride because they are in the covered area of the Temple. That represents the Chuppah der which the soon to be married couple stood. The other people in the outer court are the servants and guests standing before the throne in Revelation 7 – between seal 6 and 7. The people is the outer court are believers, but not His bride.



Bride=kallah=perfection, completion, made whole and prepared. That Christ’s bride. Satan’s bride is the opposite and uses the other part of the Hebrew word kallah. Destroyed, to be consumed and perish


Rev 11:3-5 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and three score days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth, and devours their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

Hebrews 9:27 states everyone will die once. A possible exception are the people living when He returns. Enoch and Elijah didn’t die but were taken straight to heaven. (Gen 5:24, Heb 11:5, 2Kings 2:11-12) So the two witnesses have to die; and they will because they are murdered at the end of their 3.5 year ministry by the false prophet, Abaddon.

Mal 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:

The day of the Lord has yet to come. Some say John Baptist was Elijah but John lived in the glorious day of His ministry; not dreadful judgments. The time gap of 2000 years between John the Baptist and the dreadful day is just unlikely large. Plus there are two not just one witness.

Enoch VI-XI states Enoch will judge the Teraphim who had sexual relations with human females.

Rev 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

Elijah and Enoch had the same powers millennia ago.


Rev 11:7-14 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. And they that dwell on the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelled on the earth. And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell on them which saw them.  And they heard a great voice from heaven saying to them, Come up here. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe comes quickly.

The 2 witnesses likely arrive on the scene at Jewish New Year. Die 3.5 years later on Passover and are resurrected during Firsts fruits. Great parallel with Jesus.  (half a day difference)


Trumpet 7: Third Woe

Rev 11:14-15 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe comes quickly. And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

1Cor 15:51-52 … We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

Jesus returns (harvests_ for His bride. This trumpet is mostly an announcement of His coming just before the 1st Bowl judgment. The wedding guests (grapes) will remain on earth during the final 3 ½ years.




Israel and the war with 3 groups of enemies


First war – 2nd seal – Neighbors -

Mostly brothers – Inheritance/sandal covenant.

Psalm 83.

Edom: Descendants of Esau. Middle East except Iran, Turkey and Egypt.

Ishmaelites:  Kurds and Bedouin.

Moab: Descendants of Lot and his daughters.

Ammon: Descendants of Lot and his daughters.

Amalek: Son of Esau.

Hagrites: Western Saudi Arabia.

Gebal:

Tyre/Philistia/Phoenicians: Descendants of Canaan, descendants of Ham.

Assyria:  Iran (+other countries), support only (advisors and weapons)



Second war – 6th seal – Gog/Magog

Mostly former friends – Friendship/salt covenants

Ezekiel chapters 38 and 39 gives a complete list of the nations that will be part of the 2nd war that starts when the 6th seal is opened.

Persia: Descendants of Noah’s son Japheth

Cush (Ethiopia): Descendants of Cush Ham’s grandson. – Ethiopia, Sudan and south Egypt.

Phut: descendants of Ham - Libya

Gomer: Ukraine and a part of Russia. Son of Japheth

Togarmah: Armenia, Georgia and Turkey. Grandson of Japheth

Magog: Russia. Son of Japheth

Meshech:  Son of Japheth

Tubal: Son of Japheth.

All nations are descendants of Japheth and Ham; Noah’s sons.

The exact boundaries of the mentioned nations are unknown.  Fortunately knowing rough boundaries is all that’s needed for this discussion. See picture for the ancient borders.

In Ezekiel we read God rescues Israel.

Ezek 38:18-23 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Israel, said the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in my face. For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken, Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel; So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep on the earth, and all the men that are on the face of the earth, shall shake at my presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground. And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains, said the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother. And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood; and I will rain on him, and on his bands, and on the many people that are with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone. Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

The end of this war is the start of the final 7 years before His 2nd coming. 3 ½ years for the 2 witnesses, 3 ½ year of the beast’s kingdom. Followed by a final war – Armageddon.




Third war

Countries that never had a more that distant relationship with Israel.
