The GREATEST STUDY on the TWO WITNESSESS of Revelation! The Absolute Amazing Background to The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 and Their Ministry Preparing Israel for the Fulfillment of the Day of Atonement! Zech. 12:10-14! By Dr. John Whitcomb

 










The Absolute Amazing Background to ‘The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11' - By Dr. John Whitcomb - Link to Dr. Whitcomb's Bible study on the Two Witnesses.

Beloved, this absolutely amazing Bible study on the Two Witnesses of Revelation and their three and one half year ministry; which will lead to the repentance; conversion and salvation of Israel at Messiah's glorious Second Coming; fulfilling the Day of Atonement (Zech. 12:10-14; Rom. 9-11; Rev. 19:11-21); is a powerful affirmation and confirmation of the truthfulness and integrity of the Word of Almighty God throughout the ages! In this study, you will see how Almighty God will gloriously use these two saints of old to begin the process of restoration with the God of Israel and the seed of Abraham (Mal. 4; Rev. 11)!

Beloved; the dearest and most amazing man that Almighty God has used in the 20th century has to be Dr. John Whitcomb. A dear, sweet down to earth man who gave all of his genetic genius to his ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Creator and Savior to use for His ETERNAL glory (Gal. 2:20). I got to meet Dr. Whitcomb and pick him up at the airport many times and found him always down to earth, genuine and sincere; Dr. Whitcomb had a great love for his Jesus and a great passion for souls and the Word of Almighty God! This amazing study on the background to the Two Witnesses of Revelation is an absolute masterpiece derived from years of walking with His Savior and countless hours in prayer and in the Word of Almighty God. This study answers all of the tough questions about the Two Witnesses and provides tremendous insight into who they are, their character, and their astonishing ministry in the first half of the seven-year Tribulation after the Rapture of the Church (Rev. 11). 

Beloved or "Dear friends" as Dr. Whitcomb would say; be sure to check out this audio sermon on the Two Witnesses, for indeed their neglected ministry by many pre tribbers today is a stain on the prophetic future truths of Almighty God, Israel, and the Kingdom of Almighty God!

Indeed, the Day of the Lord is at hand and Almighty God's Kingdom to follow!

The Life of Professor John C. Whitcomb
June 1924 – February 2020
 
Professor John Clement Whitcomb Jr., Th.D., was born on June 22, 1924, in Washington, D.C., to John Clement and Salome Josephine Whitcomb.  He was the only child in a military family, growing up in Tientsin, China (1927-1930), Fort Leavenworth, Kansas (1930-1933), Seattle, Washington (1933-1939), and Fort Benning, Georgia.  He attended McCallie Military Academy in Chattanooga, Tennessee (1940-1942), where he excelled scholastically.  He was then accepted to Princeton University with a career goal of becoming an American Ambassador.  During his freshman year, he met Dr. Donald Fullerton of Princeton Evangelical Fellowship, and he accepted Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior.  This changed his life, resulting in the decision to be a missionary.
 
In 1942, John was drafted into the US Army and served in the 909th Field Artillery Battalion, 84th Infantry, which fought in the Battle of the Bulge at Marche, Belgium.  He returned to Princeton University and graduated with honors (1948). He then attended Grace Theological Seminary from 1948-1951 in Winona Lake, Indiana (M.Div.), with plans to return to China as a missionary.  When the Lord closed the doors to China, he opened another door when the President of Grace Seminary, Dr. Alva J. McClain, offered him a faculty position.
 
Two years later, he met his first wife, Edisene Hanson, at a Bible conference, and they married in 1953. They had 4 children—David, Donald (Don), Constance (Connie) and Robert (Bob).  Edisene developed an autoimmune liver disease and died in 1970 at the age of forty.  About the same time, Norma Pritchett’s husband, who was a doctoral student at Grace Seminary, suddenly died of a heart attack.  Norma had two sons, Daniel (Dan) and Timothy (Tim), who were the ages of Dr. Whitcomb’s children.  John and Norma later married, uniting the families in January 1971. 
 
John was a professor of the Old Testament at Grace Seminary for nearly forty years and served as the director of postgraduate studies.  He and Norma founded Whitcomb Ministries in 1990.  From 2016 until his death, he held the title of President Emeritus.
 
As an author, he published over twenty books on the Bible and science; commentaries on multiple books of the Bible, eschatology, and other topics; and numerous technical articles.  His M.Div. defense of the historical accuracy of the book of Daniel (Darius the Mede, 1959) and his Th.D. defense of a literal six-day creation and world-wide flood (The Genesis Flood, published with
Dr. Henry Morris, 1961) remain the definitive works on these subjects.  The Genesis Flood became a classic and is the foundation of the modern Creationist movement.  He also developed a series of chronological Bible history charts that revolutionized Bible study around the world.  They remain widely used today.    
 
Throughout his entire life, Professor Whitcomb was heavily involved in foreign missions, including serving as Chairman of the Board for both the Spanish World Gospel Mission and Grace Brethren Missions.  He made many international trips over the years to support these efforts. 
 
Although internationally acclaimed, Professor Whitcomb remained a humble, gentle, approachable, and caring man. He loved humor.  He had a quick, subtle wit and would roar with laughter at a good joke.  He was also brilliant.  But, as one Christian leader remarked, “Although he was intellectually high above everybody else, he had a way of taking complex truths and making them applicable and exciting to people.” 
 
He approached the Scriptures with an awe, reverence, and deep understanding that was also impactful to his students.  Professor Whitcomb’s life-guiding Bible verse was 2 Timothy 2:2— “The things which you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, entrust these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.”  Thousands of his trainees are now teaching others throughout the world.
 
Professor Whitcomb never wanted positions of power. He, like a good soldier, wanted to please his commanders, and later, the great men of faith that preceded him. And he received true words of great praise from all of them. But there was one more accolade for which John Whitcomb was longing.  The one from his Heavenly Father, who on February 5, 2020, surely said, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant: Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.”
 
Professor Whitcomb is survived by his wife Norma and children Dan & Pam Pritchett, David and Chris Whitcomb, Tim Pritchett, Don and Kim Whitcomb, Connie and Mark Rosendahl, and Bob Whitcomb.  Grandchildren include Jessica, Laura, David, John, Jill, Jamie, Jocelyn, Janessa, Kian, Weston, Kelsey, Morgan, Josiah, Nathanael, Anna, Daniel, and Sarah and twelve great-grandchildren.
