The Two Witnesses (BD26)

Dan 7:27 Then the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdoms under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people, the saints of the Most High. His kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey Him.'
    After the death of the Antichrist at Rapture, our Lord will be given full control of the whole world. Since all Christians, who had overcome the three and a half years of persecution, temptations and deceptions of the Antichrist, have been taken back to heaven at Rapture, then who are those left behind on earth?

1. 144,000 Israelites, who believe our Lord Jesus at Rapture.
Rev 7:3-4 saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads." And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:
    Since the Holy Spirit has gone back to heaven along with the saints at Rapture, these new Israeli Christians (former devout Jews) will be sealed by God to prevent them from being harmed by His wrath.

2. Jews who had not taken the mark of the beast
Rev 11:11b ..And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven.
   Some Jews without the mark of the beast will repent and accept our Lord Jesus.

3. All those with mark of the beast
Rev 14:9-10 Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, "If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb.
    Even after the death of the Antichrist, all those with the mark of the beast will still disobey our Lord and will still keep the 'One World Religion' by serving and worshipping in temple of God (Antichrist).

      The Two Witnesses
Rev 11:1-6 Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, "Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth... And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner. These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire."
    After Rapture, Jerusalem will be controlled by the 'One World Order' for 42 months. God will then send the two witnesses to seal off the temple of God to prevent everyone (including priesthood) from entering, thereby abolishing the 'One World Religion'.
    Meanwhile the two witnesses will constantly call calamities upon the earth for their disobedience to His words as His wrath (7 bowls/vials or 7 trumpets).
