Dear Pastor Malone:

I read your article on the tribulation period. I have a concern regarding your theory on the two witnesses. From reading Revelations Chapter 10, I understood it to say the two witnesses die at the very end of the tribulation and 3 1/2 days later they rise and a loud voice calls down from Heaven to "Come up Hither". This is when everyone on Earth basically realizes that Jesus is Lord. I am interested in knowing why you think that they die in the middle of the tribulation.

Thank you.


Dear Sir:

Thanks for your question. You must be talking about Revelation chapter 11. This is the chapter that speaks about the two witnesses. There are a number of reasons why I believe their ministry will start at the beginning of the tribulation period. One, because the wrath of God is primarily in the second half. And many of the things that they will do is redundant to the judgments that God will bring upon the earth. For instance, they have the power to turn the water to blood. That is redundant with the 2nd & 3rd vial judgments. Two, the timing of their death is at the end of 3 1/2 years and the antichrist is still in power. At the end of the last 3 1/2 years the Lord will be in the process of setting up His kingdom. The tribulation period is broken into two 1260 day periods, no more, no less. At the end of 1260 days of the second half of the tribulation period begins the millennium. Some how we missed the march to Armageddon and eventual demise of the antichrist & false prophet. On top of that, there is still a worldwide satelite system alive and well, because it says that the whole world viewed their bodies for 3 1/2 days. And you know what , they celebrated and gave gifts for the 3 1/2 days. They were partying in the streets. That seems a little strange due to the plagues, trumpet judgments, bowl judgments and other worldwide catastrophies they have gone through up to this point, if indeed this happens at the end of the tribulation instead the middle. Oh, one more thing! About this time 200,000,000 men start marching from the east to the west killing around a billion people . I don't think they will be throwing any parties during the last 3 1/2 years and I don't think they will have a communications system that will be in very good working order at the end. The last thing people will be doing at the last 3 1/2 years is watching TV. Most will be looking for a safe shelter. When Jesus comes this world will be in ruins, and for the most part, uninhabitable. But He will heal the land and it will quickly, if not immediately recover. That is why I do not believe that the two witnesses will die at the end of the tribualtion period.
