The Two Witnesses…

31 Jul


Revelation 11:3-4,”And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.”

John the author of the Revelation of Jesus Christ, describes two Holy witness of the Lord Jesus Christ who will arise during the last half of the Great Tribulation and give powerful testimony on the behalf of the Lord. The above verses describe the Witnesses clothed in sackcloth meaning that they will Preach of repentance back unto the favor of God (Isaiah 37:1-2; Daniel 9:3-5). These two men who will testify during the end time will be Enoch and Elijah the two men of God who never knew death but were translated before they had died (Genesis 5:21-24; Malachi 4:5). The book of Revelation states this in Chapter 11 verse 4, “These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth” a reference to Zechariah Chapter 4. These men will Preach the truth unto the Nations and will be in direct opposition of the Anti-Christ who will be in control of the majority of the world at that time. The Bible states that after their three and a half year Ministry the they will be murdered by Anti-Christ by way of the Beast from the Bottomless Pit in Revelation 11:7, “And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.” The Bible goes on to say in verses 8-10, “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. 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.” This testify’s of the evilness of the unredeemed in the last days, who will rejoice at the death of the men of God who will teach the truth of the Holy scriptures being happy and sharing of gifts. We can see this happening even today, as good men and women are deemed judgmental heretics when they preach against sin and what the Word of God actually says that repentance is necessary to be washed in the Blood of Christ. The scripture goes on to say in Revelation 11 and 12, “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. 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.” We know that teaching the Word of God is not always met with praise and thankfulness but at times with opposition and hardships. As we approach the last days say faithful to the scriptures and proclaim truly what it says. That even though we may be shunned of this world, God will always raise us up to be glorified through Christ. Shalom…
