Amazing Discoveries - Revelation 11 Commentary
“Jeremiah Witness” - By the way, this “hour” of fulfilment which is to involve the humbling and ‘dethroning’ of the leading part of Babylon, -which actually was God’s (NT/Spiritual) Israel then, thus a (NT/Spiritual) Jerusalem is fulfilling the earlier alluded to “Jeremiah Witness” in Rev 11:5a, as per Jer 1:9; 5:14-19ff.

And this all ties in to what the Medieval Catholic Church went on to unBiblically do during, moreover the time of the New Covenant which, which eventually led to the religious revolt of the French Revolution. The New Covenant did not now make it lawful to commit the crimes and sins that the Old Covenant checked. The Law of God was still involved in the New Covenant (Jer 31:27-34), but as this was a Covenant that was now to spread as a Gospel Message, through the Church, throughout the whole world and beyond national borders (=Rev 6:3-4; -discussed in here), God/Jesus had not given His Church the mandate to spread this Message by the use of force. But that is what the Compromising Catholic Church set out to do, having seized the military power of the “dead” Pagan Rome (=Rev 13:3ff). And, as discussed earlier at Rev 11:2, that is how they came to unlawfully, forcefully “corral” a bunch of (Paganistic) Gentile people whose heart had actually not really been converted to Christ Gospel message....and this all eventually came to a head with France, when they revolted against that 1260-year ‘unequal yoking’ (2 Cor 6:14-18).
