42 months has nothing to do with 7 years at the end or tribulation. This is why you dont know what the 2 witnesses/candlesticks are since you dont know when it happened. The passage was fulfilled hundreds of years ago. Claiming it is still future is false christian-zionism scofield theology. Quoting: - 14012564
Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you
into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days
: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.(There is a 42 month period before the 7 year tribulation and to the christians that remain faithful they will escape the last 7 years. NOTICE Revelation 2:10 says some of you shall have tribulation 10 days
. To those who remain faithful until the end of the age of grace a rapture will happen before the beginning of the 7 year tribulation..THe key word is some of you will have tribulation 10 days(years
People are mislead into thinking there are only 7 years of tribulation. Revelation 2:10 tells you it is 10 days representing 10 years not 7
. There are 3 sets of 42 months in the tribulation 42months times 2 is the 7 years tribulation but there is another 42 months people can't see and this is the destruction of the united states and the people taken into slavery.
