Angels Command John To Measure The 'Temple'
1 The Body of Believers [An angel] hands me a scepter-like reed. The [rainbow] angel [hovers above me]. He commands [me], “Rise. Measure the [symbolic] temple of YHVH, and [its] altar, and the [beings] worshipping inside [the temple].”
2 Tribulation/Purification/testing [The angel continues,] “But don't measure the courtyard [surrounding] the temple, because [YAH temporarily] gave it to the Gentile [nations] who will trample the Holy City for 42 ‘months.’
42 symbolically represents 4+2 = 6, the number of godless man.
John Predicts The Bible's Brief Popularity
3 Missions/Outreach *And I'll give power to my 2 ‘witnesses.’ They'll prophesy clothed in sackcloth for 1,260 ‘days.’
The 2 witnesses are probably the Older and Newer Testaments. Sackcloth is the clothing of repentance, humility and mourning. ‘1260 days’ may refer to years after William The Conqueror (crowned 1066AD) began the process of dismantling the power of the Catholic Church, who kept the scriptures away from the common people. This theory places the end of the world around 2326AD, which seems a long way off given the modern nuclear powderkeg world.
4 True Witness These [2 “witnesses”] are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before [YHVH] the Eloah {Supreme-Being} over the earth.
5 Yah's Word *And if any man hurts the [2 ‘witnesses,’] fire shoots out of the [witnesses'] ‘mouth[s].’ [Flames] devour the [bible's] enemies, 😇. This is how anyone who wants to harm the [2 ‘witnesses’] must die.
‘Hurts the witnesses’ probably refers to hurtfully misrepresenting Biblical teachings.
6 Yah's Word These [2 ‘witnesses’] have power to shut heaven, so that it won't rain during the days of their prophecy. The [witnesses] have power over waters, to turn them to blood, 😇, and (as often as they want) to strike the earth with every kind of plague!
The World Tramples On The Bible & Murders It
7 Yah's Word *(When these [2 ‘witnesses’] finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit makes war against them. [It] overcomes them. [It] kills them.)
True biblical knowledge has perished from the earth. Most people who claim to be Bible students are as clueless as the pagans who ignore it.
8 Yah's Word Then the dead bodies of [these 2 ‘witnesses’] lie in the street of the ‘Great City,’ where our Master was crucified: [Jerusalem,] which, spiritually speaking, is ‘Sodom’ and ‘Egypt.’
The word of YHVH, both Old and New testament, lies abused, trampled, left for dead at the center of world religion. All Hebrews come out of Egypt. Look at the 6-sided stars and the pyramid on the back of a U.S. Dollar bill.
9 Yah's Word *The people, kindreds, language groups and nations see the dead bodies of [these 2 ‘witnesses’] for 3.5 [symbolic] ‘days.’ Yet [the worldlings] refuse to permit [anyone] to bury the [witnesses'] dead bodies in graves.
The religious world, centered at Jerusalem, boasts their bible colleges, universities, ministries, missions, churches, synagogues, mosques, with their huge gold-leafed bibles on their pulpits. Yet they lie dead to YAH's Word. The religious world has left the old and new testaments for dead. Judeo-Christian hypocrites use their pseudo-biblical scams to net themselves vast piles of ill-gotten money.
10 Yah's Word *The earth-dwelling people [and demons] rejoice over [the carcasses of] these [2 ‘witnesses’]. [The worldlings] make merry. They send gifts to each other. [They celebrate,] because these two ‘prophets’ tormented the [people and devils] who lived on the earth.
Everyone hates the Bible. Just quote it in reference to anyone's sins. They'll chase you out of their houses, whether they're churchgoers or atheists.
11 Yah's Word After 3.5 ‘days,’ the Spirit of life from Elohim enters the [2 ‘witnesses’]. They stand up on their feet. Great fear falls upon the [people and demons] who see the ‘prophets.’
A revival of the knowledge of YAH's Word puts terror in the hearts of men and demons. They call it ‘religious fundamentalism.’
12 Resurrection These [2 ‘witnesses’] hear a great voice from heaven say to them, ‘Come up here.’ So the [2 witnesses] ascend up to heaven in a cloud while their enemies watch them.
Persecuted believers speak the words of the Old and New Testaments. They die and ascend, leaving the earth without anyone who can properly interpret YAH's Word.
13 End Times Disasters That same hour, the [earth rocks] with a great earthquake. 1/10th of [Jerusalem] city falls. The earthquake kills 7000 people. The survivors [shake with] terror. They give glory to [YHVH] the Eloah of heaven [for sparing their lives].
‘City’ may refer to Jerusalem or to the global beast-populace. 7000 may be code for complete annihilation of the subject population.
14 Judgment Thus the 2nd terrible judgment passes, 😇. But look: the 3rd terror rapidly approaches.
15 The Kingdom (Dominion) Of Heaven *The 7th angel sounds [his trumpet], 😇. Great voices in heaven [shout], ‘The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of [YHVH] our Adonai, and of His Messiah! [YAH] reigns forever and ever!’
Or: ‘Yahshua reigns.’
24 Elders Pray For The World's Destruction
16 Praise The 24 elders (who sit on their thrones before [YHVH] the Eloah) fall upon their faces. [They] worship [YHVH].
17 The Kingdom (Dominion) Of Heaven *The elders cry, ‘We give you thanks, O YHVH, Absolute Sovereign Adonai, who is, and was, and is to come. [Finally] you've taken [back] your great power [from the evil ones]. You rule.
YHVH has, for a short time, allowed the universe to be infected with evil beings, in order to give a cautionary lesson to all lifeforms.
18 Destroying the Earth *Your orgy-of-wrath descends [upon] the rage-crazed beast-nations. It's time for [You] to judge the dead [people,] and for You to reward your servants the prophets and your [other] holy [saints], and everyone small and great who fears your name. It's time for You to destroy the [villains] who destroy the earth!”
See biblical ecological song: Sacred Sky. The dead are judged. The wicked do not live forever.
19 Judgment [Angels] open the temple of YHVH in heaven! The ark of YAH's testament [shines] in [YAH's] temple. [The air fills with flashes of] lightning, voices, peals of thunder and great hail. An earthquake [shakes my bones].
