The 2nd Woe, the 7th Trumpet & the Nearness of the 2nd Coming

Sunday, September 9th 2018  |  Revelation 11:7-19

The first woe was the demonic locusts of chapter 9, the second woe is our subject of chapter 11, the two witnesses in Jerusalem. 11:1-2 tell us where the events of 11:3-14 take place: Jerusalem. The focus is on that city and its people. The two witnesses are Jewish. They are sent by God to call the people of Israel, during the tribulation, to repentance. The Lord continues to bring intense crises to bring Israel, even a remnant, to Him. When: We are now in the 2nd half of the 7 years of tribulation (v2b). Things get worse before they get better.
