THE TWO WITNESSES 

THE TWO WITNESSES 
The two witnesses have been the topic of many discussions. Many think they are two prophets of old. Let’s look at who the scripture says they are.

Revelation 11:1-6 NKJV

“Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles. And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months. And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth. And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner. These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.”

This says that they are the two olive trees and two lamp stands standing before the God of the earth.

If we look at who the scripture says the lamp stands are in chapter one.

Revelation 1:20 NKJV

“The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.”

This says that the lamp stands are the churches. The Churches standing before the God of the earth. His witnesses that proclaim his word in the end times. This should cause you to think which church is it talking of. Well it does give clues. 

Revelation 11:7-9 NKJV

“When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead Two Witnesses

Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves.”

What nation is now known for Sodomy, and where was Christ crusified? I believe that the two lamp stands are the Jewish believers and the Gentile believers or the church from land and sea. Israel and America. The two that are linked by God for sharing the truth with the world. 

The fact that the two witnesses share with the world and the world turns away and kills them is the final offer of forgiveness and grace to the lost. At that point God has done all he can and the lost has made their decision. Then they are judged by God. 

Now, what of the sackcloth?

UNTIL AMERICAN CHRISTIANS DO THIS! THE SPIRIT OF ANTICHRIST WILL CONTINUE FORWARD PREPARING WITH EACH DAY AS WE DO NOTHING TO SITUATE EVER INCREASING EVIL THAT WILL SOON BREAK LOOSE AGAINST THE CHRISTIANS IN OUR LAND. THE SAME ATROCITIES WE WATCH TAKE PLACE OVERSEAS.ONLY IT WILL BEOUR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS. ALL BECAUSE WE DID NOT ACT BEFOREHAND.

Isaiah 58:5-14 AMP

“Is such a fast as yours what I have chosen, a day for a man to humble himself with sorrow in his soul? [Is true fasting merely mechanical?] Is it only to bow down his head like a bulrush and to spread sackcloth and ashes under him [to indicate a condition of heart that he does not have]? Will you call this a fast and an acceptable day to the Lord? [Rather] is not this the fast that I have chosen: to loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the bands of the yoke, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every [enslaving] yoke? [Acts 8:23.] Is it not to divide your bread with the hungry and bring the homeless poor into your house–when you see the naked, that you cover him, and that you hide not yourself from [the needs of] your own flesh and blood? Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard. [Exod. 14:19, 20; Isa. 52:12.] Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer; you shall cry, and He will say, Here I am. If you take away from your midst yokes of oppression [wherever you find them], the finger pointed in scorn [toward the oppressed or the godly], and every form of false, harsh, unjust, and wicked speaking, [Exod. 3:14.] And if you pour out that with which you sustain your own life for the hungry and satisfy the need of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in darkness, and your obscurity and gloom become like the noonday. And the Lord shall guide you continually and satisfy you in drought and in dry places and make strong your bones. And you shall be like a watered garden and like a spring of water whose waters fail not. And your ancient ruins shall be rebuilt; you shall raise up the foundations of [buildings that have laid waste for] many generations; and you shall be called Repairer of the Breach, Restorer of Streets to Dwell In. If you turn away your foot from [traveling unduly on] the Sabbath, from doing your own pleasure on My holy day, and call the Sabbath a [spiritual] delight, the holy day of the Lord honorable, and honor Him and it, not going your own way or seeking or finding your own pleasure or speaking with your own [idle] words, Then will you delight yourself in the Lord, and I will make you to ride on the high places of the earth, and I will feed you with the heritage [promised for you] of Jacob your father; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken it. [Gen. 27:28, 29; 28:13-15.]”

The world is given to the saints. The end!

Revelation 11:18 NKJV

“The nations were angry, and Your wrath has come, And the time of the dead, that they should be judged, And that You should reward Your servants the prophets and the saints, And those who fear Your name, small and great, And should destroy those who destroy the earth.””
