Almighty God is NEVER EVER without a human witness in His fallen creation to bear record that Almighty God is the Lord, Creator, Savior, and RIGHTEOUSNESS for Adam's fallen race!
(Gen. 6 ). After the Genesis flood, Almighty God had a Noah, Shem, Abraham, Melchizedek, Issac, Jacob, Job, and Joseph to bear record and witness to a post-Babel world that fully rejected Almighty God's ETERNAL sovereignty and ETERNAL redemptive program (Gen, 5:22; 6; 10; 11, 15:18-22, 18:19; 41; Job 1; Rom. 1:18-32, Heb. 11). It was also during this time of post-Babel global unbelief in the dispensation of nations that Almighty God called Abraham out of the land of Ur the Chaldees near the heart of the Babel rebellion and judgment to make him and his seed a chosen nation for a global witness in a post Babel world to testify that the Almighty is MIGHTY to deliver fallen man and is the ONLY ETERNAL Savior of this world (Gen. 10,11, 12:1-3, Ex. 19:5, Lev. 20:26, Deut. 14:2 Isa. 43:11). When Almighty God's chosen nation Israel was in the furnace of Egypt in unbelief, Almighty God heard their cry and sent Moses to His people to speak for Him, to bear witness and to deliver them from their bondage and the cruelty of the Egyptians (Deut. 4:20, 7:8). When Israel turned from Him in the Land of Promise, He sent Israel the Judges to speak for Him, to bear witness for Him and to deliver them (Judges 2, Neh. 9, Psalm 106:43, Acts 7). When Israel rebelled and sought a king like the kings of the demonically driven Satanic world, He sent them Samuel and David and the seers/prophets to speak for Him and bear witness for Him (1 Sam. 8:7-8, Amos 2:10-13). Under the Kings of Israel and in their captivity - when they resisted Him, rebelled and made war against Him and His ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS spiritual laws, moral laws, covenants and promises; He sent them, in particular, Elijah, Isaiah, Jeremiah and the prophets to speak for Him and bear witness for Him (1 Kings 18:36-39, 19:18, Isa. 6; Jer. 1:1-10).
When Israel was taken into captivity, the God of Israel sent them Daniel and his three friends to bear witness to Israel and throughout the entire Babylonian empire and world of His prophetic plan for the ages and Israel's very troubling future and redemption by Messiah.
(Dan. 2:28,47; 3:26-30, Dan. 9). After the Babylonian captivity Almighty God raised up Zerubbabel, Joshua, Zechariah, Haggai to build the altar, re-establish the offerings, bring a prophetic word of comfort, future and to bear witness and testimony to the world that Almighty God is not done with His chosen people (Ezra 1, Neh. 1, Haggai 1-2, Zech. 3); then finally Malachi with the Lord's stern warning before four hundred years of silence. It is after this darkening silence and a spiritual lull in Israel that Almighty God sent His ETERNAL Son in the FULLNESS of time to be born of a virgin and to bear witness in RIGHTEOUSNESS of Almighty God's grace and mercy and to FULLY demonstrate to Israel that ETERNAL salvation has now come to this sin oppressed nation and the world (Matt. 1:21, John 1:10-14, 17; 3:16-17; 8:12; 11:25; 19:30, Rom. 10:2-4, Gal. 4:4, Phil. 2:5-11, Col. Heb. 1:1-3, 2:14-16, 10:1-10, Rev. 19:10).

Matt. 27:25, John 19:15"! However, since death could not contain Him; for He was not a prisoner of Adam's fallen race and NEVER transgressed the RIGHTEOUS Law of Almighty God; being the PERFECT Law of RIGHTEOUSNESS Himself (Acts 2, Rom. 5:12-21, 6:23, 10:4); He rose GLORIOUSLY and VICTORIOUS from the grave and is now seated at the right hand of Almighty God the Father (Psalm 110:1, Matt. 28:5-6, Mark 16:19, Acts 1-2, Phil. 2:9-11, Heb. 1:2-3, Rev. 1:17-18)!
However the overwhelming majority of Israel would NOT receive the Holy Spirit's witness and power, God the Son's witness and RIGHTEOUSNESS as Savior and King nor the ETERNAL Father's witness; so they crucified and murdered Him and shouted, "We have NO KING but Caesar and His blood be upon us and our children!
the church" and the Age of Grace - to be FULLY equipped with the indwelling ETERNAL Spirit of Almighty God to be His divine witness and light to a Messiah rejecting nation and world to the resurrected life of the risen Messiah through those who have received His saving grace and pardon and that salvation is in none other (Matt. 16:13-19, John 1:17; 14:16-17; 16:7-15, Acts 2; 4:12, 17:24-34, 1 Cor. 12, Eph. 1:34:1-16, 5:21-33, Rev. 1:12-18).
It would be now, in an age of FULL unbelief that the risen Messiah will institute the "called out assembly" made up of both Jews and Gentiles - "the church" and the Age of Grace - to be FULLY equipped with the indwelling ETERNAL Spirit of Almighty God to be His divine witness and light to a Messiah rejecting nation and world to the resurrected life of the risen Messiah.
(Matt. 28:18, Mark 16:15-16, Luke 24:46-49, Acts 17:24-34, 28:30-31, Rom. 10:9-10, 16:25-26)! It will be at the end of the Church age when her witness has now failed and the world is EXPONENTIALLY hostile towards the Gospel of Jesus Christ that the Rapture of the Body of Christ will take place and her presence and witnesses removed (John 14:3, 1 Cor, 15:50-57, 1 Thess. 4:13-18, 1 John 3:1-4, Rev. 3:10). It will be with this event (i.e. the Rapture) simultaneously coinciding with the covenant of the prince with Israel's enemies (Dan. 9:27) that the Two Witnesses will arrive in Jerusalem to begin their ministry to Israel and unleash Almighty God's wrath on any nation seeking to interfere with their ministry to Israel (Rev. 11:3-7). When the Church's light, witness, and presence is taken up and removed the vacuum will be simultaneously filled with the Two Lampstands of Almighty God (Rev. 1:12,18; 11:3-7)! For Almighty God is NEVER without a Divine witness to Adam's fallen race!
When the Church's light, witness and presence is taken up and removed the vacuum will be simultaneously filled with the Two Lampstands of Almighty God! For Almighty God is NEVER without a Divine witness to Adam's fallen race!
In the absence of the Body of Christ's witness and testimony, the Two Witnesses WILL NOW be Almighty God's global witness and bright burning lampstands shining forth RIGHTEOUSNESS for 1260 days (Rev. 11:1-13)! These 1260 days will begin at the beginning of the seven-year tribulation. These Two will establish the altar and begin the oblations and sacrificial offerings of the Law pointing to Messiah's finished work as they begin to build the temple of the LORD. They shall also prophesy of things to come, preach repentance and salvation in Messiah to the Jew and world, testify of Messiah's RIGHTEOUSNESS and ETERNAL Person, preach Messiah's return and that the establishment of the Kingdom of Almighty God is just seven years away and any nation, state or individual who seeks to take away from their Divine ministry or seek to harm them shall be destroyed for they have all powers to work all plagues globally for 1260 days (Rev. 11:3-7)! It will be when the Two Witnesses ministry is completed at the end of their 1260 day ministry that they will be executed by the beast whose deadly wound has been healed, for now, it is HIS TIME to reign for 1260 days/ 42 months until Messiah's return (Dan. 7:8,11, 20,21,24-26; 8:23-25, 9:27b; 11:36-45, Matt. 24:15-22, 2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 11:7, Rev. 13; 17:8-18; 19:20)! After 3 1/2 days the risen Messiah's Two Witnesses will be resuscitated by Almighty God and ascend into Heaven in the very presence of all their enemies in the city of Jerusalem (Jews and gentiles - Rev. 11:3-13). Then shall there be a time as NEVER has been since the beginning of the creation where Satan, his beast, his demonic angelic hordes and his ravished evil mankind will seek the total destruction of all who have trusted in the Messiah of Israel, the nation of Israel and the full elimination of their Creator from their world and mind (Dan. 7:25, Zech. 12: 2-3; 13:8-9;14:1-2, Matt. 24:13-22, 2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 12:7-17; 13; 17:8-18).
In the absence of the Body of Christ's witness and testimony, the Two Witnesses WILL NOW be Almighty God's global witness and bright burning lampstands shining forth RIGHTEOUSNESS for 1260 days!
the Two Witnesses - the 144,000 redeemed Jewish male virgins - will be absolutely invincible and will execute Almighty God's divine plan and purpose throughout these last 42 months of the beast's reign of EXPONENTIAL terror (Rev. 7; 14:1-5); Also there will and angel from Heaven heralding Almighty God's saving message and stern warning (Rev. 14:6-7) along with the remnant of Jews and Gentile converts of the Two Witnesses and 144,000 Jewish male virgins who of many shall shed their blood in testifying of their great faith in the Messiah of Israel's ETERNAL salvation (Dan. 7:25, Rev. 7:9-17; 11:13; 12:11; 14:12-13; 20:4). Then it shall be at the end of these EXPONENTIALLY HORRIFIC forty two months of Satanic oppression and tyranny under his beast shall the Messiah return to crush all Divine opposition (Dan. 2:43-44,; 7:13-14, Rev. 19:11-21), redeem Israel (Deut. 4:30, Psalm 118:26,Isa. 59:20-21, Jer. 31:33-34, Rom. 11:26) and establish His Kingdom to FOREVER RULE and REIGN (Isa. 2:1-4; 11; Dan. 7:13-14; 26-27, Mic. 4:1-4, Zech. 14:16-21). The final Testimony and Witness to this fallen world will be the very God and Savior of mankind coming out of Heaven's glory with ETERNALLY great glory and power (Rev. 1:5); and at the seeing of Him shall all the nations of the earth weep and wail; and the remaining inhabitants of Israel shall call on Him as their very own Messiah and Savior (Dan. 2:43-44, 7:13-14, Zech. 12:10-14; 13:1-2; 14:3-5, Matt. 26:62-64, Mark 14:62, Luke 22:67-70, Rev. 1:7; 19:11-21)!
The final Testimony and Witness to this fallen world will be the very God and Savior of mankind coming out of Heaven's glory with ETERNALLY great glory and power.
(1 John 2:2, 4:10, Rev. 1:5). Dear friends, the times truly testify that the Messiah and His Kingdom is at hand! Wait not another moment to receive Jesus as your ETERNAL Savior!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
