Another Mighty
Angel (5:2)
"Who is worthy to
break the seals
and open the
scroll?"
"Then I saw another
mighty angel coming
down from heaven,
surrounded by a
cloud, with a rainbow
over his head. His
face shone like the
sun, and his feet
were like pillars of
fire"
(10:1 NLT)
"And in his hand was
a small scroll that had
been opened. He
stood with his right
foot on the sea and
his left foot on the
land. 3And he gave a
great shout like the
roar of a lion. And
when he shouted, the
seven thunders
answered"
(10:2-3 NLT).
The 7 Thunders (10:4)
"When the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write. But I
heard a voice from heaven saying, 'Keep secret what the
seven thunders said, and do not write it down'" (10:4 NLT)
382
Warning (10:5-7)
"Then the angel I saw standing on the sea and on the land
raised his right hand toward heaven. 6He swore an oath in
the name of the one who lives forever and ever, who created
the heavens and everything in them, the earth and everything
in it, and the sea and everything in it. He said, 'There will be
no more delay. 7When the seventh angel blows his trumpet,
God's mysterious plan will be fulfilled. It will happen just as
he announced it to his servants the prophets'" (10:5-7 NLT)

give me the small scroll. 'Yes, take it and
eat it,' he said. 'It will be sweet as honey
in your mouth, but it will turn sour in
your stomach!' 10So I took the small
scroll from the hand of the angel, and I
ate it! It was sweet in my mouth, but
when I swallowed it, it turned sour in my
stomach'" (10:9-10 NLT)

trumpet, God's mysterious plan will be
fulfilled. It will happen just as he
announced it to his servants the

The
Temple
(11:1-2)
"Then I was given
a measuring stick,
and I was told,
'Go and measure
the Temple of God
and the altar, and
count the number
of worshipers.
2But do not
measure the outer
courtyard, for it
has been turned
over to the
nations. They will
trample the holy
city for 42
months.'"

A Test Case in Hermeneutics
329
I was given a reed like a measuring rod
and was told, "Go and measure the
temple of God and the altar, and count
the worshipers there. But exclude the
outer court; do not measure it, because
it has been given to the Gentiles. They
will trample on the holy city for 42
months. And I will give power to my two
witnesses, and they will prophesy for
1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth."

• For one thing, how could John measure an invisible
body of people, even if the church were still on earth?
• If the temple is the church, then who are the
worshipers and what is the altar?
• And since the church unites Jews and Gentiles in one
body (Eph. 2:11ff), why are the Gentiles segregated in
this temple?
It is best to interpret this temple as an actual building in
the holy city of Jerusalem (Neh. 11:1, 18; Dan. 9:24)."
"To spiritualize Revelation 11:1–2
and make the temple refer to the
church creates a number of
serious problems.

The Lamp & Olive Trees (Zech. 4:1-14)
"'Zerubbabel is the one who laid the foundation of this
Temple, and he will complete it. Then you will know that the
LORD of Heaven's Armies has sent me. 10Do not despise
these small beginnings, for the LORD rejoices to see the
work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel's hand.'
(The seven lamps represent the eyes of the LORD that
search all around the world.)" (Zech. 4:9-10 NLT)
"Don't mess with us!"
330
"These two prophets are the two olive trees and the
two lampstands that stand before the Lord of all the
earth. 5If anyone tries to harm them, fire flashes
from their mouths and consumes their enemies.
This is how anyone who tries to harm them must
die. 6They have power to shut the sky so that no
rain will fall for as long as they prophesy. And they
have the power to turn the rivers and oceans into
blood, and to strike the earth with every kind of
plague as often as they wish" (11:4-6 NLT).
The Beast Attacks (11:7 NLT)
"When they complete their testimony, the
beast that comes up out of the bottomless
pit will declare war against them, and he will
conquer them and kill them"
383
Two Witnesses Killed (11:8-9 NLT)
"And their bodies will lie in the main street of
Jerusalem, the city that is figuratively called
'Sodom' and 'Egypt,' the city where their Lord
was crucified. 9And for three and a half days,
all peoples, tribes, languages, and nations will
stare at their bodies. No one will be allowed to
bury them."

"Then the seventh
angel blew his trumpet,
and there were loud
voices shouting in
heaven:
'The world has now
become the Kingdom of
our Lord and of his
Christ, and he will reign
forever and ever'"
(11:15 NLT)
"The twenty-four elders sitting on their
thrones before God fell with their faces to the
ground and worshiped him" (11:16 NLT).
17And they said,
"We give thanks to you,
Lord God, the Almighty,
the one who is
and who always was,
for now you have assumed your
great power
and have begun to
reign."

18The nations were filled with wrath, but now
the time of your wrath has come. It is time to
judge the dead and reward your servants the
prophets, as well as your holy people, and all
who fear your name, from the least to the
greatest. It is time to destroy all who have
caused destruction on the earth'" (11:18 NLT)

  • 52. • For one thing, how could John measure an invisible body of people, even if the church were still on earth? • If the temple is the church, then who are the worshipers and what is the altar? • And since the church unites Jews and Gentiles in one body (Eph. 2:11ff), why are the Gentiles segregated in this temple? It is best to interpret this temple as an actual building in the holy city of Jerusalem (Neh. 11:1, 18; Dan. 9:24)." "To spiritualize Revelation 11:1–2 and make the temple refer to the church creates a number of serious problems. 382 Warren Wiersbe, Bible Exposition Commentary

  • 57. "Don't mess with us!" 330 "These two prophets are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of all the earth. 5If anyone tries to harm them, fire flashes from their mouths and consumes their enemies. This is how anyone who tries to harm them must die. 6They have power to shut the sky so that no rain will fall for as long as they prophesy.
