In chapter 11 John is given a reed like a rod (it bends for measuring around): and the angel said : "Rise, and measure the temple of GOD (could be the 'Cepheus' constellation that looks like a house or church), and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the G-entiles : and the Holy City shall they tread underfoot 42 months. :3) And I will give power unto my 2 witnesses, and they shall prophesy 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth. :4) These are the 2 olive trees, and 2 candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. :7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. :8) And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the Great City, where also our Lord was crucified (on a cross). :11) And after 3 1/2 days the Spirit of the life of GOD entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them! :13) And the same hour was there a Great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men 7,000 : and the remnant were affrightened, and gave Glory to the GOD of heaven. So this means the Great City includes 70,000 of either people or possibly days. If it is days then it would be about 192 years and 7000 days would be almost 20 years that fall. So if 63,000 days are left, then the remnant would be about 172 years. This is about 2.4 degrees on the 'Precessionary Cycle/Clock' if one degree equals 72 years. It could be a shift of the earth's axis that throws off the timing of the 'Precessionary Clock'.
We can get more clues about these 2 witnesses from the 'Old Testament' book of 'Zechariah' Chapter 4. In 'Zechariah' the 2 witnesses are called 'olive branches'. In Zech. 4:14 it says: "These are the two annointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth". These 2 'candlesticks' are 2 that stand before the 'flying eagle' quadrant (as an eagle is Lord over the earth).
:15) And the seventh angel/star sounded (of 'Laodicea'), saying: "The Kingdoms of this World are become the Kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever. And the 24 elders (of @1080 years each), which sat before GOD, fell upon their faces, and worshipped GOD :17) Saying: "We give thee thanks, O Lord GOD Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy Great Power, and hast Reigned". It is possibly near the beginning of the 7th angel that people will finally understand the mysteries of GOD. This time is Now!
:19) And the temple of GOD was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark (arc as the open part of the 'G') of his testament : and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and Great Hail. The time of 'Capricorn'(cap-our-eye-see-horn) between @3,890 A.D. and @6,000 A.D. is where the pyramid shaped horn resides of 'Cepheus' (the King) constellation. See in my Photo Gallery how the pyramid of the American dollar bill matches exactly to this constellation.
