AND (SYNECDOCHE)…the dead bodies of the two Witnesses shall lie in the street of the great city which SPIRITUALLY is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified (compare Revelation 11:8 KJV paraphrased).
AND (SYNDECDOCHE)…they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations (world view) shall see their dead bodies three days and an half and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves (compare Revelation 11:9 KJV paraphrased).
Beyond the rationale of dialectical expressions, beyond materialism, a cloud is formed by a blast that will not dissolve – a transmute of part and of part an irrefrangible happening (physics – incapable of being refracted),,,,,, a strange but not strange transfer of time, places, things, and events: A cross where it should not be,,,,, a city where it should not be (but extinguish not my curiosity!). There is a superlative combustible here for more than just a fragmentary shining.
In a flick, the turn-on of a parallel of mirrors of the small and the great, embark I now on this journey; for this moment is a singularity. As dimensions within dimensions are they not,,,,, happenings removed from the past, removed from their historical and geographical settings…new sites to command new world
What have we here,,,,, a joker card slammed into place as a prop on a busy street of revelation? I think not!!! But this is not the time to go on automatic pilot for having a cup of coffee. There are huge mountain ranges looming. We have to get higher.
Ah! Suddenly, “as the sound of a mighty rushing wind”, a door is opened in heaven and a voice speaks and says: Come up hither, and I will show you things that MUST [infrangible] BE hereafter (compare Revelation 4:1 KJV paraphrased; also compare Acts 2:2 KJV paraphrased), sweet kiss of Selah on the Higgaion (compare Psalms 9:16 KJV paraphrased).
A diapason compass of voices cry out: “Tell me this story!” The two witness were left on the ground as dead three days and a half, you say….. Ah, the time leading to the interlude, to Abraham’s bosom, upper Hades, Lower Paradise, for there in Lower Paradise Jesus took His cross and preached to the spirits who were sometimes disobedient before the flood of Noah’s time. (Compare 1 Peter 3:18-20 KJV and Luke 23:43 KJV.)
So Sodom is there in Lower Paradise and shall be given yet time and chance to be born again from above (compare Ezekiel 16:49-55 KJV).
And Egypt is there in lower paradise and shall be given yet time and chance to be born again from above (compare Ezekiel 16:26 KJV).
