WHO ARE THESE TWO WITNESSES
AND WHAT DO THESE TWO WITNESSES HAVE TO DO WITH END TIMES?
Many Religious scholars and
even Christians have so many ideas as to who or what they believe these two
witnesses to be.
Some say they are this and some
say they are that.
We need only seek TRUTH in the
BIBLE PROPHECY ON TWO WITNESSES
BIBLE STUDY EVENTS WITH TWO WITNESSES
BIBLE STUDY MESSAGE
The Bible itself speaks
And they that dwell upon the earth shall
rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another;
two prophets tormented
them that dwelt on the earth.
Witnesses are simply TWO Prophets of the Lord.
These two individuals known as the "Two Witnesses" are only mentioned in
in the entire Bible, and yet they play a major role in the
Below, are the eleven verses that the Two Witnesses are mentioned in ...
And I will give power unto my Two Witnesses, and they shall prophecy a
thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
These are the two olive
and the two candlesticks
standing before the God of the earth.
And if any man will hurt them, fire proceeds out of their mouth, and devours
their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be
killed. These have power to shut Heaven, that it rain not in the days of their
prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them into blood, and to
smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. And when they shall
have finished their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless
pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. 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 and a half days, 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. 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. 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.
Now, let's see if we
understand this properly ...
These two individuals are chosen by God to be on
Earth during a three and one half year time period during the End Times ...
are the "Two olive trees and candle sticks" ...
Before we proceed, it is
important to learn more of this phrase "Two olive trees and candlesticks" that
stand before God.
Zechariah, it tells us of an Angel talking with Zechariah.
Zechariah, Chapter 4
And the Angel that talked with me came
again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep. And said
unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a
candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven
lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top
thereof: And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl,
and the other upon the left side thereof. So I answered and spake to the
Angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord? Then the Angel
that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these
be? And I said, No, my lord. Then he answered and spake unto me, saying,
This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by
power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. Who art thou, O great
mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and He shall bring
forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.
Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, The hands of
Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also
finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto
you. For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall
rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those
seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the
whole earth. Then answered I, and said unto him,
What are these two olive trees
upon the right side of the
candlestick and upon the left side
thereof? And I answered again, and said unto him,
What be these two olive branches
which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?
And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said,
No, my lord. Then said he, These are
the two anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth.
This Angel showed him a vision. The vision was of a Candlestick of gold, with
the bowl upon the top of it, with seven lamps and seven pipes. It had two "olive
trees" on either side of it. Zechariah asked the Angel what the two olive trees
stood for. What the symbols represented.
The Angel responded in Verse 14 ...
These are the two anointed ones that stand before the Lord.
So, it is apparent that God
has two spirits that He places in humans, as He did with Joshua and Zerubbabel,
in the book of Zechariah. God places these two spirits into humans to fulfill His
This is done through the Two Witnesses.
Back to Revelation ... If
anyone tries to hurt these Two Witnesses, that person must die in the way they
tried to hurt the Two Witnesses.
These Two Witnesses have the power to keep it
from raining for three and a half years.
Elijah was given the same power from
1 Kings 17:1
And Elijah the Tishbite, who
was of the inhabitants of Gilead, said unto Ahab, As the LORD God of
before whom I stand,
there shall not be dew nor rain these years,
but according to my word.
Which makes many believe that
one of the Two Witnesses is Elijah.
But, think about what Jesus said
... He said
that John the Baptist was Elijah ...
Verily I say unto you, Among them that
are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist:
notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of Heaven is greater than
he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets
and the law prophesied until John. And if ye will receive it,
this is Elias (Elijah),
which was for to come.
means that John the Baptist must have had the spirit of Elijah, because we know that
John the Baptist was born of Elizabeth.
So, John the Baptist had the spirit of
one of the olive trees.
These Two Witnesses also
have the power to turn water into blood and to cast plagues.
Now many say ...
Moses did the same thing when dealing with Pharaoh, so one must be Moses.
it is God's power.
It is two spirits that stand before the Lord that are placed
in humans, by God.
When these Two Witnesses are
completed with their three and a half year ministry, Antichrist will kill them.
People dance in the streets because they are so glad that these Two Witnesses
will not be able to "torment" them any longer by their preaching about Jesus.
Their dead bodies lie in the streets of Jerusalem for 3 and a half days.
But ... After the three and
a half days are over, God puts life into them and many hear a voice say ... Come
up here and they rise to Heaven right in front of many. Then comes a great
earthquake and a tenth of the city falls. Seven thousand of those watching die
and the rest are afraid and praise God.
THE TIMING IN THE END TIMES
OF THE TWO
Many get confused about
this because of the way John wrote the book of Revelation ... You see, like many
books you read, one must oft times do "flashbacks" as to be able to reveal
specific acts of specific people during the same time period.
Chapters 11, 12 and 13 are
all the same time period.
The last three and one half
years of the End Times which is forty two months which is one thousand two
hundred and sixty days (Jewish months are only 30 days).
And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy
one thousand two hundred and threescore days,
(1260 days) clothed in sackcloth.
WOMAN IN THE WILDERNESS HIDDEN
And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she
hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there
a thousand two hundred and threescore days.
ANTICHRIST REIGN OF TERROR
And there was given unto him a mouth
speaking great things and blasphemies; and power was given unto him to
continue forty and two months.
All three occur during the same time period. But how would John have told them
all at the same time? So he wrote it as he did.
These events must occur during the Trumpets as one of the Trumpet lasts 5 months
And to them it was given that they should
not kill them, but that they should be tormented
and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.
And the great tribulation only
lasts three and a half years ...
So the Two witnesses Ministry was during the Trumpets.
Further proof of this is just after the Two witnesses rise to Heaven, the
seventh Trumpet blows ...
second woe is past;
and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly. And the seventh angel sounded;
and there were great voices in heaven, saying,
The kingdoms of this world are become the
kingdoms of our Lord, and of His Christ; and He shall reign for ever and ever.
This Seventh Trumpet reveals
that the The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of
his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever ... This means it is DONE.
Antichrist does not start his
3.5 year reign of terror after this if the
kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of
our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever ...
Two chapters earlier ...
So chapter twelve and thirteen are a flashback to another event that happens
during that SAME 3.5 years.
This is proven again because antichrist kills the two witnesses ...
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.
If antichrist is introduced in
chapter 13, how did he kill two witnesses in chapter 11 ... Unless it is a
Sooooooo ... The Two witnesses
are killed by Antichrist just before the seventh Trumpet which means their 3.5
year Ministry was during the Trumpets.
BEHOLD ... GOD'S TWO
