Welcome to our bi-weekly post where we provide Bible verses, answers and advice to the questions and concerns you have. During the course of the last two weeks readers have submitted their questions and today we are going to answer one of them. So please join us and feel free to chime in on the discussion in the comments section below this post.
Before we get into this week’s questions we would like to point out that you are helping to spread the Word of God by your continued submission of questions. Because of your ongoing participation these Q&A posts have been read thousands of times. Without your participation this section of our site would not exist. So if you have a Biblical or non-Biblical question you would like to ask, submit it now for our next edition of “Bible: Question, Answer and Discussion“.

Question: When Satan starts his reign, it will be for five months, right? Since Satan will be here, the fallen angels will mate with human females, again creating giants. If that is so, how will there be giants again on the earth if gestation is 9 months? Are they birthed sooner than that of human babies?

Answer: You had several questions, but we are only going to grab one so we can answer other readers questions as well. Thank you for your understanding.
Yes, Satan is here for the entire Tribulation which has been shortened from seven years to five months. Christ shortened the time for us in Matthew 24:22. We are told the time of this shortened Tribulation in Revelation 9:5.
I have never read in the Bible a passage that would indicate there will be giants during the Tribulation. This is false doctrine. Yes, there will be fallen angels and they will give and take in marriage with the women of the earth, but there is not enough time to produce children as you already pointed out.
Question: I know that chickens are clean animals, but what about the eggs of clean animals. Deuteronomy 14:21 talks about not killing a baby goat, so I am confused about this.

Answer: Calya, it is good to hear from you again. I hope you and your family are doing well. To the audience, Cayla is eight years old.
If an animal is clean then I believe it is okay to eat the eggs and to my knowledge there is nothing in God’s Letter that would contradict that.
Please turn your Bible with me to,
21 “Ye shall not eat of anything that dieth of itself: thou shalt give it unto the stranger that is in thy gates, that he may eat it; or thou mayest sell it unto an alien: for thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God. Thou shalt not seethe a kid in his mother’s milk.”
This word “seethe” is Stong’s word 1310 which means “boil“. What this scripture is talking about is boiling the animal in its mother’s milk. God is saying do not do that, not that we cannot drink the milk or eat the animal. Just do not cook them together. Why? Because it is adding insult to injury if you will. You are eating the animal cooked in its mother’s milk, to me that just does not even feel right to begin with.
Question: Has the time of the two witnesses been shortened too? Or will they still be doing their work for 42 months?
Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Lance sent me a note and said he found on our site the answer, but for the benefit of the audience we are going to cover this again as I feel it is an important topic that many are confused about.
We are going to do an overview in this post and for all of the details please see these two previous Bible Q&A’s which I believe are very informative. Please take the time to read these.
I think some people are getting confused because they only consider Satan when they hear of Christ shortening the Tribulation and for some reason they are leaving out the Two Witnesses. Let me ask, what time element does Satan on earth belong to? The Tribulation, Satan is our Tribulation. Let me ask another question, what time element do the Two Witnesses belong to? The Tribulation.
They both belong to the same time element. What is the goal of the Two Witnesses? To uplift the Saints during The Tribulation and prophesy against Satan. The Saints or Elect if you prefer will work hand in hand with the Two Witnesses during the Tribulation.
How long is the time of Satan (The Tribulation)? In Daniel 9:26-27 we are told Satan confirms a covenant with many for one week. That week is the original seven year Tribulation (now shortened to five months). How long is seven years? 84 months or 2520 days.
How long is the time of the Two Witnesses (The Tribulation)? In Revelation 11:3 we are told the Two Witnesses have 1260 days to prophesy until they are killed. How long is 1260 days? 42 months which is half of Satan’s time which was given as 84 months.
No matter how you slice it, the time of Satan is twice as long as the Two Witnesses. Satan’s arrival marks the start of the Tribulation and at the midst of the week when Satan has complete control of the world the Two Witnesses will appear and prophesy with the Elect, being delivered up to fulfill their destiny and complete the scriptures of our Father. They will then be killed and rise three days later and then the True Christ will appear.
We would like to thank our Father for giving us this platform in order to spread His most precious Word. We would also like to thank our readers for submitting their questions and giving us the opportunity to share them with the audience.
