Dear brothers and sisters,
before i release this next Word i want to say this.
As a messenger of the Lord, my purpose is to relay Father’s messages and revelations to His people. It is Him who has commissioned me to this role and it is to Him that I answer. When producing these prophetic Words I do my best to convey what I am given in a clear manner and to provide all the Scriptures the Holy Spirit shows me as references for your own study. Please understand that I am not here to discuss, debate or converse about things you may have learned elsewhere or other ideologies. Once I release Father’s Words, I ask that you take all you are given both here and elsewhere (whether messages, sermons, prophecies and the like) to the Holy Spirit for your own confirmations and instructions.
The Bible says, ‘trust no man’ and ‘cursed is the man who trusts in man’. Let this be your guide. Do not take anything you hear to heart before consulting the Holy Spirit- the Spirit of Truth. Guard your hearts. Also, by developing your intimacy with the Lord and using the discernment He has given you, you should know how to distinguish when a message is from Him. He has His own unique ways of making things known to each of us. Jesus said, ‘my sheep know my voice’. Get accustomed to following it so you are not led astray.
Having said all this, if after reading/listening to the messages I share you have questions, please take them to the Holy Spirit, trust Him in ALL His ways and HE WILL direct your paths.
Here is the Word I am bringing you today continuing with ‘Who are My Witnesses? – part 2’.
If you haven’t watched the first part of this Word, I invite you to do so before tuning in to this one. Here’s the link, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zv68U8Aorcc&t=14s.
The first revelation I have to share is that the ‘2 Witnesses’ in Rev.11 will be a combination of Jews and Gentile believers who are walking in full obedience to Father’s covenant and have been chosen by the Master for His purpose.
*I understand that many listening to this may have been taught differently: that these individuals would be 2 Old Testament saints who would come back to earth to bring plagues upon the earth. For 30 years I also had been taught and believed the same. But two years ago, Father called me out of the church babylonian system and since then He has been teaching me personally and daily through His Holy Spirit in our secret place. This is how I have come to this knowledge, not by reading others’ doctrines and formulating my own ideas. It is to Him that I owe all the glory, power, wisdom and praise forevermore!
Just like the Lord picked Moses to deliver the Israelites out of Egypt, John the Baptist to herald Christ’s birth, and Paul to proclaim salvation to the Gentiles, each in their respective generations, in the same way the Lord has handpicked His Witnesses in our generation to carry forward the mission of the ‘2 Witnesses’.
Brothers and sisters,
We are the last generation that will live to see the things prophesied in the Word of God pertaining to End Times. The players are set and waiting on their appointed times to make their appearances on the world stage. May I be so bold as to tell you that so are the Witnesses. They are not in heaven waiting to be launched here on earth. NO! They have been for various years, in their secret places being forged by the Master also awaiting their moments to be sent forth on their missions. This moment will be defined by the latter rain of the Holy Spirit.
The Mantle of the Two Witnesses
As I prayed over this Word this evening (April 11/2022), Father gave me another confirmation of this. 1 Sam.10:6, ‘The Spirit of the Lord will come upon you in power, and you will prophesy and you will be changed into a different person’.
Rev.11:3 And I will give POWER unto my two WITNESSES, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in SACKCLOTH.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive POWER, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be WITNESSES unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Ezek.37:14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.
Acts 2:17-19, 21 And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit upon ALL FLESH 1 and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams: 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those days of my Spirit; and they shall prophesy: 19 And I will shew WONDERS IN THE HEAVEN ABOVE 2 and signs in the earth beneath; BLOOD 3 and FIRE 4 and vapour of smoke. 21 And it shall come to pass, that WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE SAVED 5.
The Lord has given me a bit more insight in the verses I just quoted. These can be found in the footnotes below.
1 ‘ALL FLESH’ refers to ALL those who will repent and be baptized.
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
2 Rev.11:6a) These [The Witnesses] have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy.
3 Rev. 11:6b) [The Witnesses will have] power over waters to turn them to blood.
4 The Witnesses will cause fire to come down from heaven.
* As you may already know, this was a sign performed by Elijah against the prophets of Baal and in Rev.13 we read that the false prophet will do the same. But I am telling you, by revelation, that the reason why the false prophet will perform this miracle (although his will be through Satan’s power and deception) is because he will attempt to copy the same miracles as the Witnesses’ in order to sway the crowds. Take note now and pray unceasingly that you will not fall into temptation and be deceived. At the time the antichrist and false prophet will be on the scene our discernment will have to be razor-sharp to distinguish which prophets are from the Lord and which from Satan. For those who have not believed the truth of God will be given to deception.
5 Acts 2:39 For THE PROMISE IS UNTO YOU, AND TO YOUR CHILDREN, AND TO ALL THAT ARE AFAR OFF, even AS MANY AS THE LORD OUR GOD SHALL CALL.
Not Literally Wearing Sackcloth
The Witnesses will be wearing SACKCLOTH. Father has given me understanding that this will not be literal but symbolic. In Bible times, every time an individual was in distress, they would tear their garments and put on sackcloth. This material was rather uncomfortable and coarse. The objective was to reflect the state of their hearts by showing Father humility, repentance and a state of grief. The same will be portrayed by the Witnesses. They will not be out in glamourous fashion and go about calling plagues on the earth as if, it’ll be their doing. When they will be embodied by the Spirit and power of the Living God, they will display Father’s heart to our generation and call down plagues only under the direction of the Holy Spirit to prompt repentance in the hearts of those who are perishing and are destined to heaven.
A Worldwide Ministry and Audience
The Holy Spirit has made me notice that the Bible does not specify that the Witnesses’ prophesying will occur strictly in Jerusalem. Therefore, be watchful for when you might see the Lord’s anointed ones manifest in great power throughout the world. While writing this, I see them in my Spirit -men and women, young and old alike, glowing like lightbulbs, summoned throughout the earth to proclaim the message of repentance and salvation to people of all nations and tongues. They will greatly display unity within the body of Christ.
Be On Your Guard Against Deception/False Doctrines
Brothers and sisters,
I urge to stay close to the Lord and to listen closely to His voice. For there are many revelations pertaining to End Times that have been mishandled and/or misinterpreted. Ask the Spirit of Truth to lead you in all. Remember what Hos.4:6 says, ‘6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge’. Pray for sharp discernment so you may see through your spiritual glasses and not be lured by the enemy who will try everything in his power to persuade, lure, entice and lie to get people into hell.
Matt.24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets [these are in addition to the antichrist and the false prophet], and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
2 Thess.2:9-12 Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause GOD shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
Why 2 Witnesses?
Because a judgement call cannot be made on the testimony of only 1 witness, they will go out in groups of 2 or 3 in order to fulfill the Word of the Lord as we read in the following verses.
Deut.19:15 One witness shall not rise up against a man for any iniquity, or for any sin, in any sin that he sinneth: at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the matter be established.
2 Cor.13:1b) In the mouth of two or three witnesses shall every word be established.
Uniting Jews and Gentile Believers By the Holy Spirit of God
Rev.11:4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Zec.4:12, 14 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? 14 Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
In Rev.11, the 2 lampstands and 2 olive branches are one and the same revelation representing the Jewish and Gentile believers. In Zec.4, the vision zooms in to the olive tree branches -meaning a portion of the Jewish and Gentile believers. Their union light up the lampstand in their midst through the oil that flows from each of them. The Holy Spirit brings that UNITY as ONE in the mind and body of Christ.
The Fire From Their Mouths
Rev. 11:5 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.
These individuals will not act as fire-breathing dragons. The connotation of the fire proceeding from their mouths will not be literal. It’ll be the power of the anointed Word of God coming out of their mouths that will bring either salvation and deliverance from hell (to those who will heed), or eternal condemnation (for those who will not).
Jer.5:14 Wherefore thus saith the LORD God of hosts, Because ye speak this word, behold, I will make my words in thy mouth fire, and this people wood, and it shall devour them.
Plagues, As Often As They Want?!
Rev.11:6 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.
This is because their minds will be renewed in the mind of Christ, carrying Father’s heart and desires. They will not be acting out of their wills but out of the Spirit of God living inside them. They will carry the mantles of many great prophets in God’s Word to perform many of the same miracles. Keep an eye out for these signs.
When will the end come?
Rev.11:7a) And when they shall have finished their TESTIMONY …
Matt.24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations (NASB says, ‘as a TESTIMONY to all nations’); and then shall the end come.
The end will not come until after the Witnesses have completed their tasks.
Not All Prophets Die In Geographical Jerusalem But…
Rev.11:7b)-8 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.
This is another Scripture that has been misinterpreted. If the Lord wanted us to know precisely where the Witnesses will die, He would have specified Jerusalem. Instead He hinted the word ‘spiritually called’ (or as other translations refer to as ‘figuratively called’) to put emphasis on the sinful natures of ‘Sodom’ and ‘Egypt’.
When people think of Jerusalem, they envision this beautiful, godly city -which is all that the Lord wanted for her. Yet this is the same that the Lord spoke about in Luke 13:34 saying, ‘O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not!’. And Luke 19:42, where it depicts the heart of the Lord for His city when He wept over it, ‘Saying, If thou hadst known, even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! but now they are hid from thine eyes.’
Father’s desire for His people and Jerusalem is that that they would follow His commands wholeheartedly and be consecrated to Him. But unfortunately, although one would like to portray Jerusalem as a holy city, the truth is that it is rather sinful, rebellious, adulterous and murderous towards the prophets of God. In the same manner, the Witnesses will die in any city that even though they may have a form of godliness, they will lack faith and deeds.
Please note that prior to Sodom’s destruction the Lord had dispatched 2 of His angels into the city to confirm its state (Gen.19). The witnesses will have the same function as in walking the earth to inspect and confirm to Father its sinful state and after this, they will be given authority to release plagues on the earth as in Egypt (Exod.7-11).
Jer.23:13-14 And I have seen folly in the prophets of Samaria; they prophesied in Baal, and caused my people Israel to err. 14 I have seen also in the prophets of Jerusalem an horrible thing: they commit adultery, and walk in lies: they strengthen also the hands of evildoers, that none doth return from his wickedness; they are all of them unto me as Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof as Gomorrah.
Isa.3:8-9 For Jerusalem is ruined, and Judah is fallen: because their tongue and their doings are against the Lord, to provoke the eyes of his glory. 9 The shew of their countenance doth witness against them; and they declare their sin as Sodom, they hide it not. Woe unto their soul! for they have rewarded evil unto themselves.
Deut.28:27, 60 The Lord will smite thee with the botch of Egypt, and with the emerods, and with the scab, and with the itch, whereof thou canst not be healed. 60 Moreover he will bring upon thee all the diseases of Egypt, which thou wast afraid of; and they shall cleave unto thee.
Summary and Glorious Outcome
Brothers and sisters,
many who are expecting to see 2 Old Testament prophets, wearing sackcloth, shooting fire from their mouths, prophesying and then dying in Jerusalem will greatly miss these messengers of the Lord unless they are discerning with the eyes of the Spirit. As a matter-of-fact, it will be the same as when Jesus came as the Son of God and men did not recognize Him but sentenced Him to be crucified.
Rev.11:10 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.
These prophets will not have it easy. In fact, they will be so hated that upon their death people will refuse them burial and rejoice to the extent of celebrating by sending each other’s gifts.
Rev.11:11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life (NASB says, ‘BREATH of life’) from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
Ezek.37:10, 13 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the BREATH came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army. 13 And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves.
