The Coming Day for Messiah to call His body "the Church" (i.e., the Rapture) just before the great and dreadful Day of the Lord is truly at hand! Many current events and signs throughout the world are strongly pointing to that reality today. Never before in the 6000-year history of mankind has such great global turmoil and calamity plagued mankind's consciousness. The spirit of the nations today is crumbling and human optimism is absolutely unable to support the EXPONENTIAL weight of REALITY of the certain unknown doom that awaits this world and the impending horrors that stand at the very door (Rev. 6-19).
the Rapture of the church takes place (which the so called "christian" scoffers and haters of the Grace of God totally reject), there will be a massive void of LIGHT and TRUTH here on earth, (i.e., there will not be one true believer left on earth at that time). However, there will be left billions of unregenerate (unbelieving) human beings in great darkness along with millions of individuals "possessing" a godless form of Christianity (Matt 7:21-23). This final form of apostate Christianity (i.e., "Christendom") is referred to in Scripture as the “Mustard Tree” and “Leavened Loaf” (Matthew 13:31-33). These "Christian" apostates who are left in this spiritually darkened world will present a FALSE perception and deception of Almighty God to a lost and darkened world, clouding and deceiving the turbulent world even more with their delusional teachings and assessments of the hour. The world at this time will be absolutely void of TRUTH, REALITY and LIGHT but Almighty God is NEVER without two witnesses in a world highjacked by Satan (Gen. 3, John 8:44, 2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph. 2:1-2). It will be at this time of horrific spiritual darkness that Almighty God will send His Two BURNING torches (as it were) to proclaim MIGHTILY throughout the world, "REPENT!! For the Day of the Lord is at hand (Rev. 11:3-7)!
on a future Rosh Hashanah feast day (1 Thess. 4:13-18; 1 Cor. 15:51-53; 1 John 3:2-3), Almighty God will send down his Two Witnesses from Heaven (His Two Mighty Candlesticks). They will begin their ministry 10 days later on the Day of Atonement dressed in sackcloth (Rev. 11:3-4). These Two MIGHTY Candlesticks will DOMINATE and BURN exceedingly bright throughout the world for the first 3 1/2 years of the tribulation period (Rev. 11:3-6). These Two Heavenly Agents - with great power and Divine authority - will MIGHTILY rebuke the post "Christian" Church age/ Age of Grace world for their gross transgressions and violations against Almighty God and His spiritual and moral absolutes. These Two will MIGHTILY preach repentance unto all (i.e., apostate Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Secularists, Atheists, Hindu's etc..), but most specifically to the house of Israel; to bring this nation to full repentance and prepare them for their Messiah's return (Psalm 110:1, Zech. 12:8-14, 13:1-3, Mal. 4:4-6, Rev. 19:11-21). These Two Patriarchs of old will proclaim the Glorious Gospel of the resurrection of Jesus Messiah throughout Israel and the world (Isa. 53, John 1:29, 3:16-17, Acts 2: 17-47, Rev. 11:3-12). They will establish the temple sacrifice and priesthood (Dan. 9:27) and prepare Israel for their King's glorious return and His Kingdom reign (Isa. 11, Ezek 40-48, Zech. 14, Matt 24:29-30). These Two will - with super natural power - shelter Israel and protect her from the world's raging anti- Semitism (Ezek. 38:8,11,12,14, Rev. 11:3-6), from the seven Seal Judgments, the first five Trumpet Judgments and Gog's confederate invasion during these first 3 1/2 years (Ezek. 38:14-23, 39:1-13, Rev. 6-9, 11:4-6). These will call down fire from heaven upon their enemy nations, turn the world's waters into blood, cause dire droughts and destroy any that seek to devour them (Ezek. 38:14-23, Rev. 11:3-6). These Two will be ABSOLUTELY INVINCIBLE and UNSTOPPABLE during their 1260 day ministry and with their words and works of RIGHTEOUSNESS they will ABSOLUTELY TERRORIZE and TORMENT the EXPONENTIALLY godless and lawless Gentile world and the majority of unbelieving Jews (Rev. 11:10).
Almighty God is NEVER without a human witness upon His earth. There has been much debate about the identity of these Two Witnesses. The Bible clearly indicates that they will be Elijah (see Malachi 4:5-6; Matthew 17:10-13) and Moses (see Malachi 4:2; Luke 9:29-30; Matthew 17:1-3), two great patriarchs and torches of light from Israel’s past sent to a presently unbelieving Israel. Under their leadership and powerful preaching, a small remnant (which will include 144,000 Jewish men) will be saved (see Rev. 7:3-8). These 144,000 saved Jews shall then be sent (Dan. 12:3, Matt 24:14) into all the world during this time of Great Tribulation, preaching the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ (i.e., the Messiah) before His imminent Second Coming. Multitudes of Gentiles will come to a saving knowledge of the Messiah of Israel through their ministry (see Rev. 7:9-17). At the climax of His return (Rev. 19:11-16), Christ-Messiah will establish His Millennial Kingdom in Israel (Rev. 20:6).
(see Luke 21:35, Rev. 6-9)! Satan and the world at this time will seek to destroy these Two Witnesses via the media, national governments, assassination attempts, etc., ALL TO NO AVAIL until the allotted time (Rev. 11:3-7). They will MIGHTILY PREACH Almighty God's Word and it will absolutely torment all those who outright reject it (John 3:19-21). We can see just a glimpse here today the unifying global hatred for biblical TRUTH and REALITY. My dear friends can you imagine what the world will do when the Word of TRUTH is preached and none can stop it? It will indeed torment the world's very godless souls.
Jesus said, "And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil. For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved. But he that doeth truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God" (John 3:19-21).
Moses and Elijah. These Two patriarchs of old - who all the world knows of and have acknowledged for centuries - will be the VERY Ones who Almighty God will use to preach repentance to a godless world (Jew and gentile) - Mal. 4:4-6, Matt. 17:1-4, Rev. 11:3-6. Sounds like a fairy tale does it not... it is anything but! It will be my dear friends! It will be!
My dear friend, the trump could sound today and all these events would begin to transpire just as Almighty God's Word said that they would. As the Day is at hand, may I ask you this very sobering question? Do YOU personally know the Lord Jesus Christ as your Savior? That question is the question of ALL questions. It will FOREVER seal your ETERNAL DESTINY.
The Kingdom of Heaven is TRULY at hand!
