The beast from the bottomless pit will kill them (Rev 11:7)

“When they have finished

Their testimony,

The beast

That comes up

From the bottomless pit

Will make war

On them.

He will conquer them,

And kill them.”

καὶ ὅταν τελέσωσιν τὴν μαρτυρίαν αὐτῶν, τὸ θηρίον τὸ ἀναβαῖνον ἐκ τῆς ἀβύσσου ποιήσει μετ’ αὐτῶν πόλεμον καὶ νικήσει αὐτοὺς καὶ ἀποκτενεῖ αὐτούς.

John said, “When they have finished (καὶ ὅταν τελέσωσιν) their testimony (τὴν μαρτυρίαν αὐτῶν), the beast (τὸ θηρίον) that comes up (τὸ ἀναβαῖνον) from the bottomless pit (ἐκ τῆς ἀβύσσου) will make war on them (ποιήσει μετ’ αὐτῶν πόλεμον).  He will conquer them (καὶ νικήσει αὐτοὺς), and kill them (καὶ ἀποκτενεῖ αὐτούς).”  However, John indicated that these witnesses did not have unlimited power.  After the 1,260 days were over, and they hand finished with their repentance witness, the beast from the bottomless pit would come up and attack these two witnesses of the olive tree and the lampstand.  That beast would conquer and kill these two witnesses to God.  Have you ever witnessed anyone getting killed?
