days of their prophecy
11:6 days of their prophecy. The “days of their prophecy” are 1260, the first 3˝ years of the tribulation. Just as Elijah called for 3˝ years of no rain in ancient Israel (James 5:17), so the two prophets will now invoke 3˝ years of drought on the whole world. Furthermore, there will be no wind (Revelation 7:1), so that even though waters continue to be evaporated from the world’s oceans, they cannot be translated inland to fall as rain. Probably they will continue to rise until they reach near the stratosphere, there to spread around the globe to reestablish the antediluvian “waters…above the heavens” (Psalm 148:4-6; Genesis 1:6-8), with all their ameliorative effects on the earth’s future millennial climate and longevity.
