1 Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, [a] saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. 2 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. 3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. " 4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God[b] of the earth. 5 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. 6 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.
7 When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them. 8 And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our[c] Lord was crucified. 9 Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow[d] their dead bodies to be put into graves. 10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.
11 Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. 12 And they[e] heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here. " And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them. 13 In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven. 14 The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly.
Okay guys let me tell you first a little of my insanity. As a maniac and someone that if he is not on medication can be out of his mind I for many years thought I was one of these two witnesses and this led me to do a lot of thought on this subject. I am still not convinced I am not one of these two prophets and yet for a person to swallow that might be a little to much. In my years I have mused a little and I know some things as a prophet who can question Jesus on issues that He has revealed to me over time on this topic. So let me give a teaching on this and tell you what may seem to you a little fictional tale.
“Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. 2 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.
The two witnesses will have a season where they will be sent into many churches where they will be told to observe by God what is the commitment of the people that have their hands in the air worshipping. Sitting in a church watching worship can be measured by feeling the presence of God in the building. The more the people’s hearts are sincere in their walk with God in their day to day life the more anointing will be in the building. I find it quite easy to measure the worshippers by the amount of angels I see in the building worshipping. If I go for a month and never see an angel worshipping I know that the heart of the people is not good.
After church over coffee if you spend time speaking to most of the people in church it doesn’t take long sharing Jesus and what he is doing in your life to find the people that love to hear about the things of Jesus and his kingdom and the other who wish you’d talk about other subjects.
Of course as a prophet if the Lord after a month or two at the church tells you to give the church a prophetic word of correction and the leaders of the church tell you to leave the church you know what sort of church you are in.
The time is coming very soon where the Beast will turn the public, the gentiles on the Christians. Any person that isn’t walking in obedience and having a grace filled life to people with no faith will be trampled by the people with no faith. But people who are lights on a hill and who are free with their compassion and grace for the unsaved will be spared.
The two witnesses will tell the world what a true Christian is supposed to be like and so lukewarm Christians will have the Beast to contend with, possibly the Mark to contend with and the testimony of the two witnesses who as true prophets will be rebuking and bringing correction to the half hearted Christians in an effort to save some.
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.
The two witnesses will demand righteousness in the earth and speak directly to governments and warn them to make their laws to come into alignment with the Holy Laws of God and Jesus. Governments that do not obey these modern terrorists will experience the wrath of God as the witnesses pronounce plagues like Moses did on the countries in wilful disobedience. Now we all know how Australia and the USA deal with terrorist threats. Under no circumstances do they co-operate with terrorists and so these countries will see blood, viruses, disease, floods, famine, crop failure, and all manner of plagues and many people will die as a direct result of these plagues.
The two witnesses will have pure doctrines that they preach and these doctrines will differ to almost every single denomination in some area.
The people of the world will fear these two prophets with a fear that will simply not go away. And these two prophets will make such unreasonable demands that unless the people of a country rise up and riot in the streets of their stubborn governments the lands of superpowers will be decimated.
The two witnesses will also be great evangelists and be saving millions upon millions of people. The people of the hi-ways and bi-ways will flock to them and the very biggest stadiums in the world will not hold these two prophets. The healings and the signs and wonders that these two will do will be so powerful and so unseen in modern history that the so called experts in the church will label the two the Beast and the false prophet.
Yes that’s right. The religious leaders of the day will be the strongest opposition to the two witnesses just like they have been to every Old Testament prophet including Jesus. And as a reward for their testimony they will be shot by snipers one day and lay dead for three and a half days.
The two witnesses are alive and living today. They may spend a few years as good guys preaching in the stadiums of the world, but when they get the order from God they will rain down plagues on earth and change one third of the ocean to blood and all the rivers and water sources in wicked countries.
For good guys they will be the world’s biggest baddies. For the broken hearted they will be meek as a lamb and for the self righteous Pharisees of today they will roar with the Lion of Judah’s voice.
They are the biggest threat to the world and half baked sinning Christians that horde wealth in these lasts days will hate them and their message. The doctrines that they will preach will be so hard to accept that many good hearted people will reject them instead trusting in the commandments of men and the doctrines of demons then the message of these anointed prophets of God.
Here is one more thing I hope for.
I think one of them might be a lady, a prophetess.
Just as I think 77,000 of the 144,000 will be women.
I think in the last move of God women are going to be anointed and covered by men but preach in power with all signs and wonders following.
The first plague has already been prophesied, and it’s a flue virus that will be a pandemic that will take a minimum of 600 million lives where certain evil people will die of it when they get it and the good hearted will be sick but no die.
I personally think almost 2 billion people will die in the Judgement and most of them as a direct result of the plagues of the two witnesses.
They are going to harvest more souls from the earth then any great evangelist and they are going to bring the sickle of the harvest to the wicked too and therefore be the biggest killers in the world’s history.
They are going to make people fear, and then hate and when they die there will be another Christmas celebration as people give each other gifts. Three and a half days later all the people that are still alive and who were the followers of the two witnesses and the 144,000 will go home in the rapture.
I am just an unlearned man. I might be one of the two witnesses, and yet if I am not I look forward to seeing them on earth.
I have no fear of the Beast or the Mark or demons.
George W Bush is the biggest thing I have ever seen like unto the Beast and the church seems to love him. The church seems too blind and they are under a great delusion.
Great names travel making millions preaching and selling books talking of massive revival and outpourings and peace when the storm clouds of judgement are coming and holiness is the only thing that is going to save people in these last days.
I’d love to hear from people that agree that this might be true and those who think this is a lot of rot and a work of fiction I look forward to the day you see your error and you repent.
God bless you all.
