But, back to Revelation 11, where prior to this destruction we are told of two witnesses that will warn the city and call the people to faith.The witnesses can be no other than Moses and Elijah, who are themselves symbolic of the Law and the Prophets.However, I contend that the use of “seven” may be as a symbol of fullness rather than as a definitive number.Mount Zion (Jerusalem) is the great mountain of the Lord, the true pole of the earth: (Jer ).That these are Moses and Elijah figures is evident in their powers.One has the power to smite the land with every plague and turn the waters to blood (Moses in the Exodus).
These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands which stand before the Lord of the earth.
I propose that the city is actually Jerusalem, not Rome.
A more direct indication than the oblique references above occurs in Revelation 11:8, which says that it is Then I was given a measuring rod like a staff, and I was told: “Rise and measure the temple of God and the altar and those who worship there, but do not measure the court outside the temple; leave that out, for it is given over to the nations, and they will trample over the holy city for forty-two months.” Revelation 11 opens with John being told to measure the “temple,” clearly referring to the Temple in Jerusalem (the “holy city”).
So now, ironically, Jerusalem must fall because of the slain Christians.
The name of the “great city” is hidden behind many references in Revelation.
The Jewish Temple had a court of the nations (Gentiles) and was the only temple rightly called the “temple of God.” The “forty-two months” is likely a reference to the duration of the Jewish War with the Romans, three and a half years.
