Thank you so very much for your site. You have been a lot of help to me. My question is if the two witnesses show up in Rev. 11:3 and are here for one thousand, two hundred, sixty days, would that go thru the great tribulation? At what point do they come and what point do they leave?
The 2 witnesses are first mentioned in Rev. 11:3. If this is when they first come on the scene, then their ministry begins before the Great Tribulation, which starts on Earth in Rev. 13. A 1260 day time period would mean their deaths will occur sometime before the Great Tribulation ends. Rev. 11:3-12 is a summary of the entire 3 1/2 years, and they’re not mentioned again, so we don’t know the exact point at which they’re killed.
