These two witnesses are to be given special powers by God to witness Him for 1,260 days (3 and a half years) when they will be killed by the antichrist and left in the street for all to see for three and a half days before being called up to Jehovah. These two witnesses will breathe fire out of their mouths consuming people who are against the Lord and will have special powers to control the weather and bring plagues and pestilence.
And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
Well, if you are like me, you would have believed the two witnesses to be two guys right? Elijah, Noah, Moses or even John the Baptist, someone like that, well we would all be very wrong! I have just watched a movie which explained the two witnesses perfectly and blew my mind at the same time. The Bible seems to have a special power to blow someone's mind, doesn't it? I will post the video below for everyone to watch at their leisure but first I want to explain what the video produced by AoC Network, tells us.
The two witnesses are not two people, no, they are two peoples. Let me explain. In Zechariah 4:2-3 is asked by an Angel what he has seen in a dream:
“What do you see?” he asked. “I see a solid gold lampstand,” I replied, “with a bowl at the top and seven lamps on it, with seven spouts to the lamps. 3 There are also two olive trees beside it, one on the right side of the bowl and the other on its left.”
What Zechariah is seeing in his vision is symbolic, The gold lampstand is the Church, the seven lamps are the seven Angels of the Church and the two olive trees are the Jews and the Gentiles. In Jeremiah 11:16 we read of an olive tree and these two olive trees and the golden lampstand are to be found witnessing for Jehovah in the last days:
The LORD called you a thriving olive tree with fruit beautiful in form. But with the roar of a mighty storm, he will set it on fire, and its branches will be broken.
The above verse is explaining the Jewish people, the tree is broken because many of them refused to accept Jesus Christ. In Romans, 11:24 we read of another olive tree.
After all, if you were cut out of an olive tree that is wild by nature, and contrary to nature were grafted into a cultivated olive tree, how much more readily will these, the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree!
Above, Paul is describing the Gentiles (wild by nature and contrary to nature) that would describe me before I became baptized to be perfectly honest and the natural branches grafted to their own tree would be the repenting Jews who later accept Jesus Christ as their Messiah.
In Revelation 1:12 we read once again about golden lampstands.
I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lampstands
And then in Revelation 1: 20, we have an explanation, everything becomes clear.
The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lampstands is this: The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands are the seven churches.
‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out My Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. 18 Even on My menservants and maidservants I will pour out My Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy. 19 I will show wonders in the heavens above and signs on the earth below, blood and fire and billows of smoke.
Revelation 11: 5-12, Jehovah explains just what special power His people will have during the tribulation period.
5 If anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouths and devours their enemies. In this way, anyone who wants to harm them must be killed. 6 These witnesses have the power to shut the sky so that no rain will fall during the days of their prophecy, and power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they wish. The Witnesses Killed and Raised 7 When the two witnesses have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will wage war with them and will overpower and kill them. 8 Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city—figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where their Lord was also crucified. 9 For three and a half days all peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will view their bodies and will not permit them to be laid in a tomb. 10 And those who dwell on the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate and send one another gifts because these two prophets had tormented them. 11 But after the three and a half days, the breath of life from God entered the two witnesses, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell upon those who saw them. 12 And the witnesses heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud as their enemies watched them.
An again, in Jeremiah 5: 14,
Therefore this is what the LORD God Almighty says: "Because the people have spoken these words, I will make my words in your mouth a fire and these people the wood it consumes.
So, conclusion, the two witnesses mentioned in the last book of the Bible are not two people but two peoples, the Jews and the Gentiles, they will be given an incredible power to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they like. They will prophesy, as fire coming out of their mouths and will eventually be killed by the antichrist with their bodies left in the streets of Babylon, (world-wide cities) before Jehovah calls them up to him just before the return of Jesus Christ.
