Foreshadowing of The End Times

March, 2009

It was a foreshadowing of the end time church. The candlestick is a symbol of the church. The two olive trees or two olive branches represent the Jews and Gentiles, the golden oil is the Holy Spirit.

In Romans 11, Paul explained to the Romans how the Jews are the original olive tree and he Gentiles are the wild olive tree, then he explained how through Jesus Christ, they had been grafted into the original olive tree. Now get ready. Here comes the bombshell. The two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole earth… the two witnesses are the Jewish and Gentile believer… the saints who will be living upon the earth at this time.

The “two anointed ones” literally mean the “sons of oil”. They are oil bearers, channels through which the oil of the Holy Spirit will flow.

In the last days the “golden oil” of the Holy Spirit is going to flow out of these two in a united effort to cause the church to accomplish the work God planned for it.

The two witnesses are the end time saints! Are you beginning to see the other half of the picture concerning the great end time conflict? God’s people will not be defeated! Simultaneously, during the same three and one-half years God has allowed (the) Antichrist to have dominion over the nations, the saints… Jewish and Gentile believers around the world will be given supernatural power. Like the prophets of old, they will be (the) final end time witnesses to the world that God is the only true and living God by the supernatural miracles they perform they will give evidence, furnish the proof of God’s power to the world.

After they have finished their “testimony”, Antichrist will “make war” against them and will kill them. – Revelation 11:7

“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”. – Revelation 11:8

The “great city” in this verse is first of all, referred to spiritually as “Sodom and Egypt”. Sodom refers to the depth of moral degradation and Egypt symbolizes oppression and slavery. The great city in which the martyred saints will lie in (is) not a particular city but it is the world under the diabolical dominion of Antichrist under Satan’s power which was also responsible for crucifying the Lord. For three and one-half days the world will have a great celebration. While the bodies of the martyred saints lie in the street, the people of all nations will send gifts to atone another because the witnesses who had “tormented” them were dead.

The saints are lying dead in the street. Antichrist has defeated them. After three and one-half days, something happens, God breathes life into the martyred saints and they stand to their feet. “And after three days and a 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.” – Revelation 11:11

Then as their enemies, Antichrist, the false prophet, and all those who have taken the mark of the beast watch, a loud voice is heard from heaven: “Come up hither”. There is great victory and triumph over their enemies, the saints rise to meet the Lord in the air! Praise the name of the Living God!

Do you see the powerful position of victory God has planned for His people? During this time of final conflict, God is in control, not Satan, not Antichrist, not the new one world religion. When Christ returns, He will fight the battle of Armageddon against Antichrist.

Antichrist is doomed to destruction. After Christ’s great victory over his enemies, both Antichrist and the false prophet will be cast into the lake of fire, Revelation 19:20. Satan will be bound for a thousand years, Revelation 20:1-3 and the saints of God will take possession of the kingdom of God on earth.

“And the kingdom and dominion and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole Heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the Most High whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom and all dominion shall serve and obey Him.” – Daniel 7:27

There is no defeat for the Christian as long as he doesn’t retreat. God wants to raise you to a new level of victory greater than you have ever known. Allow the Holy Spirit to reveal to you how you can walk in new victory over your circumstances.

Thank you my Jesus, I love you.
Amen!
