Watering the Garden

And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. 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. 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. 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.

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 days and an half, 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. (Revelation 11:3-13)

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. (Zechariah 4:11-14)

In the book of Revelation when the sixth trumpet is sounded there are 2 of 3 woes described. During the time of the 2nd woe it speaks of 2 witnesses that shall appear on the earth for 1,260 days. These two are also called the 2 olive trees or 2 candlesticks spoken of in book of Zachariah in the Old Testament.

If anyone tries to harm them words spoken out of their mouths will overcome or devour their enemies. It also says that they have power to shut heaven, that it doesn’t rain during the days of their prophecy and that they have power over water to turn it to blood, just as Moses did, and also to smite the earth with plagues, as often as they choose.

After these 2 are finished with their testimony it says that Satan as the anti-christ will have them killed in Jerusalem and no one will bury them, but just leave there bodies. Apparently they are not going to be very well liked because it states that people will be celebrating when they are killed. They will lay there for 3 and a half days and then rise from the dead. When they rise from the dead a (paralyzing fear*) will fall on the people of the earth. (*From the Greek word)

This is probably going to be televised. We have to ask ourselves; will we be paralyzed in fear or celebrating with the 2 witnesses because it is time for Jesus to return.

There will be 2 witnesses, annoying to most, which will appear on earth just before the return of Jesus. We need to watch for them and listen to them.

Our Father appreciates the fact that you are trying. May God’s blessing be upon this
study of His word, Amen.

    What a timely article for a time such as this. You need to go to Youtube and type “Elijah again? Our prophecy speaks of two witnesses to come….” and watch the video posted by a couple called godshealer7. Read the postings by someone called “John Diomitron”. He posted a prophecy on 11/19/2012 about an earthquake in Philadelphia. On 11/23/2012, a minor earthquake occurred in the greater Philadelphia area!!!

    Could this be one of the two witnesses…the one called “the chosen” in the Word? Only the LORD and Lord know.

    Interesting times we are living in.

    God Bless You!
