"The 3bulation Has To Be More Than 7 years"

I have been wondering with all the dates and calculations come and gone if this has anything to do with it. That the tribulation may be more than 7 years. First of all, the bible states that the two witnesses comes out in the 1st 1260 day period to preach to the world. Once they finish their testimony, the beast will kill them and after 3.5 days they will arise and ascend to heaven. After killing them the beast comes to power and begins the 2nd 1260 day period of his reign. That already totals 7 years.
THEN there is something VERY important I just discovered. That the vast majority of the trumpet, vial and seal judgmemts do not take place until after the beast finishes his reign, which is after the 7 years.
"They called out in a loud voice, €œHow long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?€ Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little LONGER, until the number of their fellow servants and brothers who were to be killed as they had been was completed." Rev. 6:10-11(NIV)
In the above verse the saints are pleading for HOW LONG will it take for God to judge the earth and avenge their blood. And He tells them TO WAIT UNTIL the NUMBER of their fellow brethren who will die like they did
is completed. It's obvious that during the entire time of their persecution on the earth, there seem to not have been any significant judgments going on otherwise they wouldn't have asked that question.
This then brings us to the 3rd 1260 day period which begins God's wrath being poured out without mixture and the preparing of the armies of the earth by satan to for the great battle of ARMAGEDDON.
So in conclusion, this bring the total to 10.5 years.
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life. (Revelation 2:10)
