“Come up here!” (Rev 11:12)

“Then they heard

A loud voice

From heaven

Saying to them,

‘Come up here!’

They went up

To heaven

In a cloud,

While their enemies

Watched them.”

καὶ ἤκουσαν φωνῆς μεγάλης ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ λεγούσης αὐτοῖς Ἀνάβατε ὧδε· καὶ ἀνέβησαν εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν ἐν τῇ νεφέλῃ, καὶ ἐθεώρησαν αὐτοὺς οἱ ἐχθροὶ αὐτῶν.

John said, “Then they heard (καὶ ἤκουσαν) a loud voice (φωνῆς μεγάλης) from heaven (ἐκ τοῦ οὐρανοῦ) saying to them (λεγούσης αὐτοῖς), ‘Come up here (Ἀνάβατε ὧδε)!’  They went up (καὶ ἀνέβησαν) to heaven (εἰς τὸν οὐρανὸν) in a cloud (ἐν τῇ νεφέλῃ), while their enemies (οἱ ἐχθροὶ αὐτῶν) watched them (καὶ ἐθεώρησαν αὐτοὺς).”  John indicated that they all heard a loud voice from heaven speak to the two witnesses.  This voice said come up here.  With that, these two prophetic witnesses went straight to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies stood there watching.  The tables had turned.  This was like the Ascension of Jesus Christ in Luke, chapter 24:50-52.  Do you believe that you will go to heaven?
