THE "GENTILES" IN REVELATION 11:1-2 ARE NOT WHO YOU THINK THEY ARE........
To correctly understand who "the Gentiles" are in Revelation 11:1-2 you must first read the immediately previous Scripture, Revelation 10:11, which sets the context for correctly understanding who "the Gentiles" are in Revelation 11:1-2 .
"And he said unto me, Thou must PROPHESY AGAIN BEFORE many PEOPLES, and NATIONS, and TONGUES, and kings." ( this is a group of Gentiles )
John had PROPHESIED BEFORE , in Revelation 7:9, about many PEOPLES, and NATIONS, and TONGUES in: ( a group of Gentiles )
"After this I beheld a GREAT MULTITUDE which no man could number of all NATIONS, and kindreds, and PEOPLES, and TONGUES, stood before the throne and before the Lamb ..." ( a group of Gentiles in heaven )
As directed, John then "PROPHESIED AGAIN" , in Revelation 11:1-2, about the raptured "GREAT MULTITUDE" of GENTILES in heaven that he had previously prophesied about in Revelation 7:9 :
"......., Rise and measure the temple of God ( in heaven ) , and the alter, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple , leave out, and measure it not FOR IT IS GIVEN UNTO THE GENTILES ( the Great Multitude of Gentiles from Rev 7:9 which is the raptured Gentile Body of Christ Church in heaven ), and the Holy City ( in heaven ) shall they tread underfoot FORTY-TWO MONTHS."
SO, THERE YOU HAVE IT :
All three Scriptures ( Rev 7:9 , Rev 10:11 , Rev 11:1-2 ) are speaking of the very same group of GENTILES , ie. the Great Multitude of Gentiles, which is the raptured Gentile Body of Christ Church in heaven . The raptured Church is in heaven for the very same forty-two months that the anti-Christ "continues" with his authority on earth AFTER receiving his power from Satan ( Rev 13;5 ) .
According to Your Holy Word, come Lord Jesus !
