Revelation 11 King James Version (KJV)
11 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
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.
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.
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.
8 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.
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.
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.
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.
13 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.
14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.
18 And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and the time of the dead, that they should be judged, and that thou shouldest give reward unto thy servants the prophets, and to the saints, and them that fear thy name, small and great; and shouldest destroy them which destroy the earth.
19 And the temple of God was opened in heaven, and there was seen in his temple the ark of his testament: and there were lightnings, and voices, and thunderings, and an earthquake, and great hail.
Who are the Two Witnessess?
Revelation 11:3-12 reveals that right after the translation (Rapture) two strange but amazing prophets will appear in Jerusalem. (Rev. 11:3). They will warn the Jews of the deeds of the anti-christ and will literally smite the earth with plagues! They will call asteroids and fire right out of the heavens; also they will literally dry up the atmosphere for 42 months!” (vr. 6) – Rev. 8:7-12. “They also lead the 144,000 Hebrews!” (Rev. chap. 7) – “The two witnesses are killed and translated just before the 7th trumpet and the 3rd woe. (Rev. 11: 12-15).
The two Witnesses of Revelation 11 come to Israel to call out the 144,000 Jews back to the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Remember that the Jews were blinded to this truth until the fullness of the Gentiles be fulfilled. They will come to Israel to testify to them about Jesus Christ being their true Messiah.
They will show signs and wonders following their ministry.The AntiChrist will hate these two prophets and will kill them, but God will raise them up again after three days and be caught up into heaven. Make no mistake about it. Here it is written in REVELATION 11:3-12.
Who are these two Defenders that challenge the Anti-Christ? And who are the 144 000 people mentioned in Rev 7:1-8 and Rev 14:1-5? Are the same people or two different 144 0000?
What our Prophet Brother Branham Said?
“Now, these two prophets, what will they do? It’s Moses and Elijah. They’ll rise on the scene. They’ll tell those Jews their mistake. And out of that Jewish bunch that’s there now to be the 144,000, God will call with these prophets…
What is it? the Spirit of Elijah off of this Gentile church will just continue right on into that Jewish church, go right on in and call Moses with him. Hallelujah.
You see it? And he’ll preach the same message of Pentecost to those Jews, that they rejected the Messiah. Amen. You see it? It’ll be the same Pentecostal message that these Jews will preach right over to them. They’d raised up a great powerful 144,000…
They had the Holy Ghost, and brother, you talk about doing miracles; they did them. They stopped the heavens, and it didn’t rain in the days of their prophecy, smote the earth with plagues as oft they wanted to. They give plagues and everything else. They’ll give them Romans a hard way to go. But finally they’ll be killed. Our God is a terrible God when He’s angry. But remember, that’s over in the seventieth week, and the Bride in glory. Amen. The wedding supper’s going on. Yes. Now, notice. (SEVENTY WEEKS OF.DANIEL.title JEFF.IN DA89-141 61-0806)”
“They have power over the waters to turn them to blood and to smite the earth with plagues as oft as they will… What is it? What can bring these things but the Word?
They can do nature anyway they want to. It’s the prophets the other side of the rapture. With the power of God, the Word of God, they just condemn nature. They can send earthquakes, turn the moon into blood, the sun can go down or anything at their command. It’s Moses and Elijah, ‘cause there’s their ministry impersonated again: both men. It’s those prophets. (SIXTH.SEAL.THE.title JEFF.IN 63-0323)”
