Revelation 11:7

The Two Witnesses Killed

Revelation 11:7: “And when they" [The Two Witnesses] "shall have finished their testimony,” [The end of their appointed time] “the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit” [The Beast whose deadly wound was healed] “shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.”

2 Esdras 2:40-47

The 144,000

2 Esdras 2:40: "Take thy number, O Sion, and shut up those of thine that are clothed in white, which have fulfilled the law of the Lord."

2 Esdras 2:41: "The number of thy children, whom thou longedst for, is fulfilled: beseech the power of the Lord, that thy people, which have been called from the beginning, may be hallowed."

2 Esdras 2:42: "I Esdras saw upon the mount Sion a great people, whom I could not number, and they all praised the Lord with songs."

2 Esdras 2:43: "And in the midst of them there was a young man of a high stature, taller than all the rest, and upon every one of their heads he set crowns, and was more exalted; which I marvelled at greatly."

2 Esdras 2:44: "So I asked the angel, and said, Sir, what are these?"

2 Esdras 2:45: "He answered and said unto me, These be they" [The 144,000/Servants of God] "that have put off the mortal clothing, and put on the immortal, and have confessed the name of God: now are they crowned, and receive palms."

2 Esdras 2:46: "Then said I unto the angel, What young person is it that crowneth them, and giveth them palms in their hands?"

2 Esdras 2:47: "So he answered and said unto me, It is the Son of God," [Christ] "whom they have confessed in the world. Then began I greatly to commend them that stood so stiffly for the name of the Lord."
