THE 70th WEEK OF DANIEL HAS NOT YET BEGUN BECAUSE GOD'S TWO WITNESSES HAVE NOT YET APPEARED IN JERUSALEM........
Here’s why I believe God's Two Witnesses 1,260 day ministry occurs during the first-half of the 70th Week of Daniel.
"When they FINISH their testimony, the BEAST that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and KILL them."
The beast, who is the anti-Christ, is given the power, the throne, and the authority from Satan when Satan is cast down at mid-week, and then continues for the NEXT 42 MONTHS.
Rev 13:2 and 13:5
"The dragon gave him his power, his throne, and great authority......and he was given authority TO CONTINUE for forty-two months."
Therefore God's Two Witnesses finish their 1,260 day testimony AT THE SAME TIME the anti-Christ receives his great power from Satan to "overcome them, and kill them" at mid-week, and then "continue for forty-two months".
The 1,260 day testimony of God's Two Witnesses happens during the ENTIRE FIRST-HALF of the 70th Week of Daniel. We will know that the 70th Week of Daniel has begun when we see and hear of two men clothed in sackcloth preaching the Gospel of Christ on the streets of Jerusalem.
For those who believe that their 1,260 day testimony is during the last-half of the 70th Week, please consider this:
God's Two Witnesses can NOT survive during the last-half of the 70th Week because they do not have the Seal of God on their foreheads like the 144,000 do, and they are not protected in a special place in the wilderness like the remnant woman is. That is why the beast, who is the anti-Christ, has the power of Satan to "overcome them, and kill them" at mid-week when Satan is cast down.
