Steve Myers Two men lie dead in the street.For threeandahalf years, they've stopped the rain and condemned the world. The crowdaround them cheers, sparking a celebration of their death. A party atmosphere breaksout and quickly spreads around the world. Their corpses are immediately seen aroundthe globe through Instagram and Twitter. People share photos taken next to their remains.All of the calamity that they've apparently brought on the world has finally come to anend. That's a vivid picture of what the Bible paintsof a scene that lies ahead. But who are these two individualsé Are they really the sourceof international troubles that the world will

soon seeé Stay tuned to Beyond Today as wediscuss who are the two witnesses. Good evening everyone. That is the beginningto an upcoming Beyond Today program where we discuss the two witnesses. Welcome to ourBible study tonight. We are live now at our biweekly Wednesday night Bible studies. Ourtopics for the last few studies have been Prophesy 101. Tonight's subject is the twowitnesses. We're going to be covering the subject a littledifferently than we did on this upcoming program, so this will be something different as tothat. We'll add to it, give some background, talk about a number of different issues. Butwe're still going to deal with the questions

about these two individuals. Who exactly aretheyé Are they symbolsé Are they just merely ideas that are trying to get some other pointacrossé Or what exactly are theyé So that's our goal for this evening as wediscuss who are the two witnesses. So as we begin our live Bible study tonight, let'sask God's blessing on our study and then we'll jump right into it. Okay. So bow your heads. Great loving heavenly Father,God Almighty, thank You so much for Your wonderful ways. We thank You God for Your truth, loveand mercy. We thank You God that You give us a window to look into the future, to havean understanding of what Your purpose and

what Your plan is. So Father we pray for Yourguidance tonight, we pray for Your inspiration on the words that are spoken and on the thingsthat we hear, Father. Most importantly Father, not only to know whether it's some of thethings that are on the horizon, but God, how that impacts our daily life. So please blessus and guide us, strengthen and certainly Father we pray for Your presence in this studytonight. We put it into Your hands and ask for Your guidance and pray all of these bythe authority of our Savior Jesus Christ, Amen. Once again, welcome everyone. We're goingto start where that tutorial left off. And that

takes us to the book of Revelation. The bookof Revelation is where you could say the litigation begins. The litigation on the court room,you might say, of the Supreme Court of God on this world. When we look at Revelation 11, we're at thetime of the Great Tribulation. We're at that time of the threeandahalf years where it'sgoing to be difficult times in this world. It will be a dangerous world, it will be adifficult world. This world will be in rebellion against God, and His people, God's people,will be persecuted at this time. So as we look at Revelation 11, we could considerit a prophetic courtroom where testimony will

be given. So here we find that the courtroomis now called to order. The witnesses are going to come to the stand. So when we turnto Revelation 11:3 it says, “And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they willprophesy 1260 days, clothed in sackcloth.� So we have a connection here to Matthew 24where Christ talked about a tribulation that was going to come. And we're told that tribulationwill be for a time and times and ahalfatime, adding up to 42 months in other referencesthroughout the book of Revelation, 1260 days. Three and ahalfyears for the Great Tribulationand the time where the witnesses have power from God.

EndTime Prophecy 101 Outline of Revelation

Gary Petty Well, good evening, everyone.I'm glad all of you could make it here this evening. We were discussing what we wouldlike to do for our next series of Bible studies, and the subject came up of prophecy. And sowe discussed, well, what type of prophecy or what prophecies do we want to cover. Andwe came up with the idea, we just called it EndTime Prophecy 101. We wanted to, overthe next five studies, just give an outlines of what the endtime prophecies talk about.We could have gone through messianic prophecies, we could. there's all kinds of prophecieswe could have gone through. But we want to go through the basics. And we want to givesome details, some details, we won't have

time to give. Other times, we're going tobe covering material that we don't have all the answers to. So before we get started, why don't we alljust rise and bow our heads. Father in heaven, we thank you so very, very much for the opportunityto be here tonight. We ask You to open our minds to Your Word, and to Your truth, andto be humbled by it, Father, that You give us this information, that we, in our mindsguided by Your Spirit, understand part of it. As Paul said, “We see through a glassdarkly,� but we can understand what You give us. So we ask for Your direct help tonight.You will inspire us to learn more about what

You tell us about the future, so we cannotlive in fear, but we can be prepared, Father, and know that You will be with us. So we thankYou, we praise You, and we ask all things in Jesus's name. Amen. So in our theme of EndTime Prophecy 101,tonight, what we're going to try to do in an hour is tell you everything you alwayswanted to know about the Book of Revelation. Now what I want to do is just give an overviewof the Book of Revelation. Now, we're going to go through a lot of material, and we'regoing to be through it, some of it very quickly. I'm just going to be touching on certain things.I mean, obviously, we can spend an hour on

each chapter of the Book of Revelation andstill not cover everything. We're not going to speculate a lot. When we're speculatingsome, I'll tell you when we're speculating. We're just going to try to give you an overviewof what the Book of Revelation shows us about endtime events. One of the reasons, too, we decided to dothis was because of the questions that we get. Our people write in to Beyond Today,or they write in to the UCG website, and a lot of questions we get lately, because peoplesee the world unraveling, is “Is the tribulation startingé Is the tribulation about to beginéHow will we know when it beginsé Is President

Obama the Beastéâ€� We get those kind of thingsall the time. So I think we can go through tonight and at least figure out that the tribulationisn't going to start tonight. We know that much. There's some events that have to happenbefore, and I think we can come to a pretty, pretty clear understanding that Mr. Obamais not the Beast. Okayé There's something greater here that God is doing. And thereis an evil that is on the horizon, and is probably going to happen in our lifetime. Let's start with the first slide we're goingto show here is Revelation 1:3. quot;Blessed is he who reads and those who hear the wordsof this prophecy, and keep those things which

are written in it, for the time is near.quot;So we know that this book was written specifically to help Christians throughout history, butalso specifically to help those at the end of the age when the time was near, so theycould see what was going on. Now, not to always know and predict exactlywhat's going to happen next, but to know what's happening as it happens. Sometimes we tryto speculate on specific prophecies so much. If you've been in the Church long enough,you've been through many times where there was some specific prophecy with the idea ofhow it would be fulfilled. Those are fun things to do and we should be watching prophecy,but we have to be very, very careful. Now
