The Two Witnesses
Updated: Feb 9
Day 6 of the 24 Day Prophecy Study
Notes compiled by Steve McAtee and Marty Zide
According to Rev. 11, God will raise up two special individuals who will witness for Him during the Tribulation period.
Characteristics of the 2 witnesses 1. they will minister for 1260 days (3 1/2 years) 2. they will most likely minister in the last half of the tribulation, some believe it is in the 1st. half 3. they will work powerful miracles 4. those who try to harm them will be killed 5. they ultimately will be killed by Antichrist 6. after 3 1/2 days they will be raised from the dead & taken to heaven
Rev. 11:3-12 - And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth... And if anyone wants to harm them, fire flows out of their mouth and devours their enemies; so if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this way... When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the abyss will make war with them, and overcome them and kill them. And their dead bodies will lie in the street... And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate; and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth. But after the three and a half days, the breath of life from God came into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell upon those who were watching them. And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” Then they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies watched them.
God is never left without a witness. Even during these dark days when Satan and his cohorts try to stamp out the truth, God prevails.
