Revelation 11: The 7th Angel
John explains that in the last days the Lord will send two prophets; “And I will give power [authority] unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days…” (Revelation 11:3) John explains that these two missionaries will not be harmed during those days and that it will also not rain during this time. It is interesting to note that a member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints said; “No doubt they will be members of the Council of the Twelve or the First Presidency of the Church” – Elder Bruce R. McConkie (Doctrinal New Testament Commentary, 3:509).
However, after they have had ample time to deliver their testimony, the beast will come out from the bottomless pit and will strike them dead; “…their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city… three days and an half…” (Revelation 11:8-9) After those three days, however, “…the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud…And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and a tenth part of the city fell…” (Revelation 11:11-13)
The Seventh Angel sounded; “…and there were great voices in haven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and he shall reign forever and ever…” (Revelation 11:15) Paul describes the situation by telling us that the 24 elders who sat before God, fell to the ground and worshiped God.

BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL ON WHAT YOU TEACH. BE BLESSED NOT DECEIVED.
Humanity777 I appreciate your concern, but you need to take into account that my blog is my own personal beliefs and that of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I am sure that my beliefs are slightly different from yours, just as your beliefs might differ slightly from another religion (Christian or non-Christian). If you are curious to know what I believe or how I write my blogs I would suggest you refer to the “About” section of my blog. I just ask that you be careful to judge others, or to criticize others for their beliefs. Jesus Christ taught that we should love on another, and that is exactly what we should do, even if beliefs differ slightly. Let God be the Judge. Thanks for stopping by and for taking concern, I wish you well in your scripture studies!
“A PERSON WITH THE SPIRIT WILL MAKE JUDGEMENTS ABOUT ALL THINGS. BUT THAT PERSON IS NOT SUBJECT TO MERELY HUMAN JUDGEMENTS.”
RELIGIONS ARE NOT GOD. GOD LUCK
I completely agree with you, Religions are not God. I never made the point that they were, I just mentioned that people have different beliefs, but that they are all centered around God. You and I may think differently, but we both believe in God. I love you as my fellow man, and I think it is great that you are so passionate, continue in your studies and may God bless you for the great love you also have towards your fellow man.
