I have felt recently, that we are in a unique period of time,
when the Rapture is so close, that Watchers, are being allowed
special revelation and insight into the 7 year period that is
just ahead, immediately following the catching away of the
As the Watchers pour over the scriptures, with an eye on the
daily news, and an ear tuned to daily events, we are being
given unprecedented glimpses.
Last week, I was on the phone with my sister, and we were
discussing Chapter 11 of Revelations, and the two witnesses.
It struck me how the parallel ( even that word speaks of 11,
two tall slender objects side by side ) of the chapter number

tall slender objects hence the 11.

these two witnesses were. I began to see them as two young

The whole world watches while their dead bodies lie in
the streets of Jerusalem, and then............to their HORROR
They stand to their feet, ............and .......WHOOOOOSH !
Doves, it must be soon...........joechappell
