God's Two Witnesses

We are living in the end times. These are perilous times and it is highly important that we prepare ourselves. Our God is love impersonified, that is why he has already revealed all that is to come in his Word, well ahead of time so that we are not caught unawares. He wants his children to escape the days of tribulation and hence he has revealed how terrible it is going to be as a warning, so that we will toil to be with him in eternity, without seeing the days of tribulation. In every revelation about the future, we would be able to see God’s immense wisdom. It also shows that God is in complete control of everything in this earth and in the heavens. If you would like to get a sneak peek into the wisdom of God and how he has planned and executed everything from the beginning of time, then you should listen to this message.

We are in the last days and God has revealed the future to his children through his word. This message is a warning for God’s children to be prepared.

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

God says, I will give power. If you notice, it is in future tense. It has not yet been given but it will be given in the future. What will be given? Power. To whom will the power be given? To the two witnesses of God. We need to understand that two witnesses of God will appear in this world suddenly. God calls them as “My witnesses”. Always God gives power to those whom he calls as “His own”. What is the job of these two witnesses of God? They shall prophesy and testify. In Revelation 11: 7 we see that they will testify. They are very amazing prophets because it is mentioned that they will prophesy for 1260 days, which adds up to 3.5 years. What is their attire when they prophesy on earth? The Bible says that they will be clothed in sackcloth.

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

This infers that the content of their prophecy is not going to be pleasant to our ears. As we all know, whenever people are clothed in sackcloth, the situation always pertains to crying, mourning and lamentation.

Revelation 11: 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.

This is going to happen when the time comes. God reveals the plight of the people who would try to hurt them. Who are these prophets?

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

We know that murdering or killing someone is prohibited in the Ten Commandments. In Ephesians, we see that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood. Contradicting all these, we see in this case that if any man tries to hurt them or kill them, he will be killed. They don't need any assistance in killing their enemies. Fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. Many modern teachings reveal that the fire would be an AK47 that they would be armed with. However, it is not true. Just as the Bible says, they will have the power to produce fire from their mouth. Such is the kind of self defence given to them. What happens when the government tries to hurt them? They are rendered powerless before them, therefore they cannot do anything. This proves that God is in absolute control. Man with all the advanced technology and even nuclear bombs cannot prevail against these two witnesses. They even have the power to shut heaven and stop rain.

Revelation 11: 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.

If we look into it deeply and think who dealt with fire, we will understand that it was Elijah. Elijah was the prophet who had power to bring down fire from heaven and he even stopped rain.

James 5: 17 - Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

Revelation 11: 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.

Here also we see that heavens would be shut for the 1260 days when these prophets will be prophesying. There will be no rain for 3.5 years since these prophets would have the authority to shut the heavens. God can give his power to anyone. They will also have the power to turn water into blood and release all sorts of plagues upon the earth. People will be terrified at them because they will be empowered by God. Similarly, Jesus could not be arrested or harmed in any way when he scrambled all the shops in the synagogue. Twice he did it but they couldn't even touch him. Why? God is in control. He can do what he wants to, on planet earth. These two prophets will have the power to smite the earth with any kind of plagues upon the people of the earth and to change the water into blood. What opinion will the people of the earth have about these two prophets?

Revelation 11: 10 - Because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.

This statement reveals that their power was not just confined to Israel, but to all or many nations.

Exodus 7: 20 - And Moses and Aaron did so, as the Lord commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood.

Exodus 9: 14 - For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.

It is similar to what happened during the time of Moses. During the time of Moses, these incidents happened only when needed, however, during the time of these two prophets, it would be continuous for 3.5 years. Just the two of them against the whole earth and none could touch them for 3.5 years. None of us should be on earth during this time of torment. They were just two in number, and did not have any followers or bodyguards, but still no one could touch them.

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.

Once they are done with their testimony, the beast who ascends from the bottomless pit will war against them and kill them. It's impossible for a man to die twice. According to the Bible, two people did not die from the Biblical times. They were Enoch and Elijah. According to the Bible, it is appointed for man to die once. Even Jesus Christ died when he came as a man to earth. After their ministry is completed only, the beast will be given power to war against them. After the completion of the 1260 days only they could be killed. Jesus Christ also ministered on earth for 3.5 years.

Revelation 11: 8, 9 - 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.

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 very interesting because, when the Apostle John wrote this Book, there was no television or Aeroplane or any such technology. There is no way, all the people of the earth could see something like this. Now it is feasible because of the inventions. Whichever channel people turn to, this would be the News, enabling all the people of the earth to witness it. This could be the reason why God enabled the invention of Television, satellites etc. Once they are killed all the people of the earth will rejoice and would not bury them but would prefer to see their body decay on the streets itself.

Revelation 11: 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.

God will not allow their bodies to be buried. Here again God is in complete control. He will make the people to fulfil his plan without even realising it.

Revelation 11: 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 3.5 days, the Spirit of life from God will enter them and they will come back to life. This also will be witnessed by all the people of the earth. They will be terrified.

Revelation 11: 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.

Then there will be a voice from heaven asking them to come up and they will ascend into heaven, with their enemies watching. They will ascend the same way as Jesus did post resurrection. All this proves that God is in absolute control. In the past, he allowed the people of Sodom and Gomorrah to do as they liked. Even today, people behave as they like, and God is quiet about it. Just because God is quiet, it doesn't mean that he approves what you do. He never approves anything that is wrong. That's why we need to understand what God approves. Just because nothing serious happened to you, don't think that God approves of all your wrong doings. It would be a costly mistake, don’t take chances. We need to understand what our God approves. God moves according to his wisdom and understanding.

Who is the God you serve?

Job 9: 10 - Which doeth great things past finding out; yea, and wonders without number.

Job 5: 9 - Which doeth great things and unsearchable; marvellous things without number:

If you are wise, you will learn what God approves and the things that please him. Aren’t you supposed to be in peace with such a great God? Well think about it and act wisely. The highlights of today’s message are;

  1. God is in complete control,

  2. He allows people to live and act as they like, although he is in control. He does it with a plan and a purpose.

We live only once, so do not waste your time. Time once gone never comes back. Therefore redeem the time and be blessed. God bless you.
