There are three woes in the book of Revelation. The first begins with the sounding of the fifth trumpet, the second with the sounding of the sixth trumpet, and the last on the sounding of the seventh trumpet.

Revelation 11:10-12
And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. [11] And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. [12] And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.

The great gathering of joy suddenly ends in fear as many observe the two witnesses being resurrected from the dead. I suspect the whole world will see their bodies on the Temple Mount lying stone cold dead for more than three and one half days.

They will have every reason to be frozen in fear for the resurrection precedes a great earthquake in the city of Jerusalem, which occurs in the SAME hour the two witnesses are resurrected and then ascend into heaven.

The great earthquake concludes the second woe of God, which began with the destruction of one-third of all mankind, finally ending with a tenth part of the city of Jerusalem falling down to the east of the line extending from Geba to Rimmon. The part of the city of Jerusalem to the west of the line will be listed up during the earthquake, and inhabited during Messiah’s reign.

Revelation 9:12-15
One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter. [13] And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, [14] Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. [15] And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

Zechariah 14:10
All the land shall be turned as a plain from Geba to Rimmon south of Jerusalem: and it shall be lifted up, and inhabited in her place, from Benjamin’s gate unto the place of the first gate, unto the corner gate, and from the tower of Hananeel unto the king’s winepresses.

Revelation 11:13,14
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 seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. [14] The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

The surviving remnant that gives glory to the God of heaven represents the 144,000 sealed Jews of Revelation 7:4.

Revelation 7:4
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

They are the remnant of the Seed of Genesis 3:15, who is also the Seed of the Woman in Revelation 12:17 in the Negev Wilderness.

Genesis 3:15
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.

Revelation 12:5
And she brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne.

Revelation 12:17
And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.
