Revelation 11: The Two Witnesses & the End

*Good day to you. GOD Bless you say welcome to this family Bible study hour. Were ready to get back in Our Fathers Word; Revelation 11. What a Fantastic the 10th chapter is, which identifies the false christ and how long he will be here on earth in power. The time was shortened to a five month reign. Then in 10 the chapter, CHRIST would say I beheld satan as lightning as he fell to earth. Then you heard about the 7 thunders, which what lightning causes. Now that we closed the 10th chapter the voice the 7th angel began to sound. Thats the very events that precede the coming of the true CHRIST. So, with that being said you actually have a chapter here that is inserted that lets a believer know that exactly 3 and a half days after the witnesses die in the streets, the 7th trump sounds (CHRISTS appearance). So it is good Our Father as we learned from Amos Chapter 3 verse 7, The Father through CHRIST has already said, I will never do anything that I havent already foretold through the prophets. Having said lets pick it up Revelation Chapter 1, verse 1 and it reads

Revelation chapter 11 verse 1: And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.

*Now usually a measuring reed is not a rod. This is kind of a rod for correction. This is talking about the 2nd Advent. In other words its measuring people. Who makes it, and who doesnt, who is utilized, who GODS Elect are, and who arent. This rod is for correction, or even destruction. You see the wrath of GOD is about to be poured out. Verse 2

Revelation 11verse 2: But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

*Naturally, 42 months is basically 3 years as far as months go. One of the signifiers or things you should notice is how long is the temple area stays under gentile control. It is today, the Dome Of The Rock is secured by a non-Christian religion, and so it will be until that time. But, 42 months (moons) are always of the night. Months are prophecy that pertains to that; that is evil, which is to say satan. Days (sun) is always prophecies concerning GODS children (GODS Elect). So, you see why there is need for that rod of correction is the very temple itself at GODS command; why? GODS Elect is going to convert many peoples, gentiles, and otherwise. Verse 3

Revelation Chapter 11 verse 3: And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

*Remember days are solar. In other words it will be a time of correcting. Now, theres a beautiful bit of knowledge hidden within this verse. As GOD always uses moons. How long is a month? Well, a month is only 29 something days. A month on the solar calendar is 30 days. So, when you add 42 times 30 you get the number of days before the end comes, before the evil transpires. Those witnesses that will be allowing The Holy Spirit to feed through the menorah; which is to say the 7,000 of GODS Elect.

Many of you wonder. What will I do, and how will I be informed? Well, youre going to be told right here. Thats why GOD never leaves those that he covers. This is why he would say in Chapter 9 verse 4 You cannot bothers those that have the seal of GOD in their foreheads. GOD even said, you cant even kill the others, you can sting and deceive them; but you cannot kill them. We see here why, because he sends the two witnesses and they have power and we have the two witnesses say 10 days before the false one appears. Thats time to get things organized and know what way which the wind is blowing, and how to arrange a campaign. Verse 4

Revelation Chapter 11 verse 4: These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

*The two witnesses are the two olive trees and candlesticks. Now, theres a clue even given there that you must understand. Well, who are two witnesses? Their two people standing before GOD. How could they possibly be with GOD? Well, they didnt die. How many people have been on earth and gone to heaven without dying? Enoch we know, he was so good that he taught against the fallen angels and the daughters of Adam. Enoch was a good person and preacher that GOD just simply took him. But, then what you have to jar your mind awake to is GOD would never let anyone bury Moses (supposedly he died) and GOD himself took him.

Even in the book of Jude the devil argues and hunts for the bones of Moses. Well, why cant the devil find them? They dont exist. In Matthew 11, who is that showed up on the Mount of Transfiguration with CHRIST? Elijah and Moses. Moses had many wonderful things that transpired. He would

feed the Children of Israel in Egypt, the plagues, seas turning into blood. Many, many things. The dominion of Almighty GOD is able. So, you want to be real careful who you pick as the witnesses; Remember one thing that the witnesses stand before GOD in heaven and they appear 1260 days before CHRIST returns. What is olive? It is the Oil Of Our People. Its the oil of The Lamp. Even the 10 virgins, five were out of oil. Olive oil is ELA YAH in the Hebrew tongue. Its truth, knowledge, and wisdom. Verse 5

Revelation Chapter 11 verse 5: And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.

*There is a tremendous amount of power with these witnesses. Why? Because, GOD is with them and with all that they serve. This is not a new thing which is written in the Old Testament in Zechariah chapter 3. We see this stone with 7 pairs of eyes; meaning GODS Elect. Then in Chapter 4 Zerubbabel that one born in babel meaning in confusion; but then came out. Well, what brought him out of confusion? Truth (GODS Word). Then there was plumb-bob and GODS Elect are on the end of that string that GODS own natural law of gravity that keeps things straight and narrow. We have a lot of help because these two witnesses feed this lamp without the help of man, or gravity. Verse 11 of the 4th Chapter of Zechariah and it reads. 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? You want to know? Listen to it; it was told long ago. Verse 12

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?

They feed GODS Elect; its the Holy Spirit that causes the oil to flow. Verse 13 And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord. Hes going to tell you. Verse 14

Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth. They stand right before him and by him and you wonder why Elijah and Moses showed up before the Mount of Transfiguration? The Hebrew is very specific in this; Their The Two Sons Of Fresh Oil. That, that feeds and leaves us not wanting. A little thing you might overlook in the prophecies and that fact that GOD will do nothing that he hasnt foretold his prophets. Lets take that Elijah one of the ones who was a prophet of prophets and Jezebel wants him real bad. She wants to do away with him. She sends and army after him and of course GOD always takes care of his own. Open your Bibles to 2nd Kings Chapter 1. Lets look at Elijah for a little bit and what happened in the flesh concerning him with verse 10 and it reads

And Elijah answered and said to the captain of fifty, If I be a man of God, then let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And there came down fire from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty. You see GOD has power for those witnesses, anytime he so chooses; and you would fear something? You would just be fearing, fear itself. Verse 11

Again also he sent unto him another captain of fifty with his fifty. And he answered and said unto him, O man of God, thus hath the king said, Come down quickly. Verse 12

And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and consumed him and his fifty. And so it was. Now everyone knows Elijah is a Man of GOD now and they plead with him they dont want to be burned up. GOD spoke to Elijah and said you go ahead and go down, I got your back. In first Kings Chapter 18, GOD has a sense of humor. Elijah was the only prophet left basically and there was about 400 Bale prophets there and they challenged Elijah big time. Elijah had them build and alter and had them slaughter and animal and sacrifice to their god. Elijah told them you have your GOD come and consume your sacrifice. Well, they (the 150 of them) started early in the morning and went all day praying and dancing; wanting fire to come down from their GOD. Elijah on the side kind of mocked them by saying in the Hebrew Maybe your god is off to lunch? Finally, Elijah dug a trench and had water poured in the trench and on everything; and where you couldnt light a fire. Then GOD brought down fire down from Heaven and WHOOSH! the Alter was cleansed.

Why you need to know this is because you need to learn about the miracles Elijah and Moses performed in the presence of GOD. So, what has been shall be again. If you understand the beginning you most likely will understand the end. So, we have these two that come that have this oil that flows without the aid of man; but by the GOD himself and the presence of The Holy Spirit, as he feeds and siphons the truth into those 7,000 when they witness. This time is upon us. The beauty is that GOD would send them a few days before the anti-christ even appears for comfort, advice, knowledge, and leadership. Back to Revelation Chapter 11 verse 6

Revelation Chapter 11 verse 6: These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

*These two are the witnesses. Not in the days of their prophecy is the sign of Elijah. The plagues and blood happened with Moses. The power like Moses used in Egypt. Verse 7

Revelation Chapter 11 verse 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.

*This is where satan really messes up. GOD gave him orders back in Chapter 9 verse 7; do you remember what it was? Touch not those that have the seal of GOD in their mind and satan takes the two witnesses and has them killed, breaking GODS command; which means big trouble for him. Verse 8

Revelation Chapter 11 verse 8: 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.

*The word street is plateia: Strong's No G4113 Greek: Transliteration: plateia Pronunciation: plat-i'-ah

Definition: Feminine of G4116; a wide plat or place that is open square: - street. It means in an arena basically. Why is called Sodom and Egypt? Because, of the degradation in Jerusalem. Where the anti-christ will stand where he ought not. The point is why wouldnt they bury them? Because they still in certain quarters, satans little children say that CHRIST never rose from the dead. The synagogues of satan will lay these two out publically in an arena so that three and half days theyre going to be there and were going to witness theyre deader than a hammer and satan will make try and say CHRIST is a lie. Verse 9

Revelation Chapter 11 verse 9: 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.

*This is why you know when CHRIST returns after the 3 and half days after The Witnesses resurrect. Satan wants people to watch them lay there. Verse 10

Revelation Chapter 11 verse 10: 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 will kind of give a clue of how many will be deceived by the false one. Many celebrations were going on at this time, and satan and his followers are glad to get rid of them. Verse 11 listen carefully

Revelation Chapter 11 verse 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.

*After 3 days and half exactly, the rest speaks for itself. This is where people begin realizing theyve been had. The word fear here in the Greek is: Strong's No G5399 Greek:

Transliteration: phobe Pronunciation: fob-eh'-o Definition: From G5401; to frighten that is (passively) to be alarmed; by analogy to be in awe of that is revere: - be (+ sore) afraid fear (exceedingly) reverence. It is a paralyzing fear that comes upon them.

Many of them have been in church their whole life and totally disreguard GODS Word. Verse 12

Revelation 11 verse 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.

*They saw them go. Here the two witnesses are removed. 3 and half days the 7th trump is going sound. Verse 13

Revelation 11 verse 13: 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.

*A huge earthquake. This 7,000 is the fallen angels and theyre going to die right there. GOD will get the glory because he do away with the wicked ones with satan. GOD doesnt need them any longer, so they will die instantly. The remnant which is to say GODS Elect will give glory to GOD. For it shall come to pass.

Revelation 11 verse 14: The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.

*2nd of the three. Verse 15

Revelation 11 verse 15: 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.

*Here it is the 7th trump (the end). CHRIST then will reign FOREVER. Verse 16

Revelation 11 verse 16: And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God.

*Why wouldnt they? When you see the glory and power of YAHSHUA The CHRIST. Verse 17

Revelation 11 verse 17: Saying, We give thee thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

*He will reign forever and forever. Yes, those two that stand before GOD are going to come to earth a few days before the false christ comes to prepare GODS answer to that malicious group of lies that will come upon our people; and they will have power that stings. Which no one can bother them until GOD allows them to be placed in that arena in Jerusalem; and even that is for a purpose, a purpose that is to show that Our Father is in charge and in control and things always happen theyre written. Verse 18

Revelation verse 18: And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.

*Those that simply corrupt the Earth are going to be gone. That day of reckoning is coming. Christian shouldnt fear the word judgement after standing against the false one and should look forward to reaping their rewards. Verse 19

Revelation verse 19: And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail. *Mark Them Temple of GOD was opened. We know what brings this to pass. Those people who keep searching for The Ark of Covenant obviously never read GODS Word because its right there with GOD as stated in this verse. What a pitiful shame, and actually one of the two witnesses took the Ark with him (Elijah). Why would GOD leave The Ark Of The Covenant on Earth with the mess that man has created? This Ark will be the real thing, what incredible spectacle. Then Millennium will begin which is to say The One Day with The LORD; which the set aside ones and the prophets will have an opportunity to convince the ones that were deceived. What a time of discipline and teaching it will be.
