The two witnesses of Revelation 11 are Israel (Moses) and the Christians (Elijah). This is my thought after studying the clues. I may be wrong. You
Moses took Israel through the wilderness to the promised land and was the symbol for the nation entering the new time for the nation. Israel is the
witness of God's faithfulness to His people. As we come to find out, that faithfulness extends to the entire world through the light of Israel. No
other nation has done as much to show us the light of virtue, faith, giving and YES, even what not to do as a people. They have covered it all. The
world is the student of Israel by any standard of argument. Of course, each of the seven continents have a teacher, but Moses IS the TORAH as a
witness and Israel stands as that witness to us today. God's ability to restore Israel is a witness to the rest of the world that He will accomplish
what he says He will do. Ultimately, they are the witness to the coming Messiah.
Elijah is pictured in 1 Kings 17 telling Ahab that the Water would be turned off and there would be no more Dew or Rain in the land. Dew represents
the water droplets that will appear in the morning before the Sun rises to evaporate and distill the water back again into unity. This is a picture
Later in that chapter, Elijah is shown in Zarephath (meaning Refinery), appearing to the widow woman who had a dead son. Elijah then takes the son "up
stairs" and restores his soul. He then brings him back down to mother. What is this telling you about the dew and baptism? Elijah prepares the way
for 7 billion souls to see Christ return. He is the witness of the Baptism Waters and to the Christians as they show Israel who their Messiah is.
Who was Elijah in the first century? John the Baptist? What was he doing? Preparing the way for this:
7 “Look, he is coming with the clouds,”
and “every eye will see him,
even those who pierced him”;
and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.”
So shall it be! Amen.
Do you see the fact that the wicked generation would be here to see Christ return? You must be born again. We then remember the words of Paul in
I believe everything that is in accordance with the Law and that is written in the Prophets, 15 and I have the same hope in God as these men
themselves have, that there will be a resurrection of both the righteous and the wicked. 16 So I strive always to keep my conscience clear before God
Do you get it? We are ALL here to see Christ return and Elijah is the witness in the water. We are here because Elijah prepared the way in the
3 A voice of one calling:
“In the wilderness prepare
the way for the Lord[a];
make straight in the desert
a highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be raised up,
every mountain and hill made low;
the rough ground shall become level,
the rugged places a plain.
5 And the glory of the Lord will be revealed,
and all people will see it together.
For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
6 A voice says, “Cry out.”
And I said, “What shall I cry?”
What is Elijah witnessing to us by the testimony of the Christians?
13 Jesus answered, “Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, 14 but whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst. Indeed, the
water I give them will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life.”
What is in store for the fallen leaders and those who fail to repent?
John the Baptist (Elijah) in Matthew 3:
7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to where he was baptizing, he said to them: “You brood of vipers! Who warned you to
flee from the coming wrath? 8 Produce fruit in keeping with repentance. 9 And do not think you can say to yourselves, ‘We have Abraham as our
father.’ I tell you that out of these stones God can raise up children for Abraham. 10 The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree
that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire.
11 “I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will
baptize you with[c] the Holy Spirit and fire. 12 His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing floor, gathering his wheat into
the barn and burning up the chaff with unquenchable fire.”
Keep in mind that water puts out fire. We are baptized into the waters of life for one reason--to repent. The veil covers the temple and keeps us
from remembering. We are sheep with wool puled over our eyes as the shepherd sheers our sin. The wool is then washed white as snow and given back to
us as a Robe (New Body) and a Crown (New Holy Mind).
The two witnesses are Moses (Israel) and Elijah (Christians)
11 I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. 2 But exclude the
outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. 3 And I will appoint my
two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” 4 They are “the two olive trees” and the two lampstands, and
“they stand before the Lord of the earth.”[a] 5 If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how
anyone who wants to harm them must die. 6 They have power to shut up the heavens so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and
they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.
7 Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. 8 Their bodies
will lie in the public square of the great city—which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where also their Lord was crucified. 9 For three and
a half days some from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. 10 The inhabitants of the earth will
gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.
11 But after the three and a half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.
12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked
13 At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the
survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14 The second woe has passed; the third woe is coming soon.
Who is "Their lord above?" That would be Nimrod and Babylon. He was crucified in Egypt (OSIRIS). Osiris was circumcised and unable to reproduce.
Isis tries to put the languages back together again after the nations are scattered around the world. The bricks have fallen.
The Chief Cornerstone is giving. God's will is to give and receive only. The lost Word of the Builders (Masons) is Christ.
