The GREATEST STUDY on the TWO WITNESSES of Revelation! Who are They? 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!
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.

(like a whole, unbroken egg), but the transgression of our father Adam against the ETERNAL spiritual laws (absolutes) and physical natural laws of time caused him to die – both spiritually and physically (Gen. 3; 2:16-17; Rom. 5:12-19). Thus, because of Adam’s transgression all who are born in Adam (i.e., the entire human race) are born marred and “broken” from Almighty God's original design (Gen. 1:31).
It is only in Jesus Messiah (the Savior of the world) that is found the PERFECT RIGHTEOUSNESS that we so desperately need to enter into Almighty God’s HOLY and PERFECT Heaven!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

For years I was a practicing Roman Catholic. From the womb, I was taught and raised in the traditions of the Catholic faith (ideology), and in true sincerity, I went to church every week, prayed every night, and practiced the Golden rule, but I lived contrary to the moral teachings given by God in His Word. It wasn’t until just before my twenty-first birthday that someone shared with me from God’s Word the True Gospel (good news) and the True Christ of the Holy Scriptures. At that time it was very hard for me to humble myself and go against all that I thought, was taught and believed for years about Jesus. At first, I didn’t want to accept the truth and have to change my way of seeing and doing things. Consequently, I ran from the Lord for three years. I had always known that Almighty God’s Word was true and the only source of ultimate truth (John 17:17). I knew in my heart also that I had to humble myself and let Almighty 9God and His Word be my authority and guide.
May I ask you this personal question? Do you know the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, as the Holy Scriptures teach? True Christianity is not a religious/ cultural philosophy or a practice of “Christian” values and traditions. It is a personal, living relationship with the Creator of heaven and earth in spirit and truth, as revealed in God’s Word (John 4:24). The very One who created all, died on the Cross to pay the price for your sins and mine (John 1:1-14; Philip. 2:4-13). My friend, I can’t think of anything more wonderful than that to tell anyone! May it be your real desire to know the One Who so loved you and sent his Son to die for you, so that you may be with Him forever in joy and peace (John 3:16-17; Gal. 1:4). Won't you place your trust in Him today? You will never be the same!

Today is the day not to despair, but to place your ETERNAL trust in Jesus Christ (Prov. 3:5-6, John 3:16-17)! We as a post-American nation need to make Almighty God and His Word our treasure and our possessive reality today (Gen. 15:1, Prov. 3:5-6)! We need to fully receive and believe His Word with all our hearts and seek His perfect will for us in such days until He comes!
Beloved, wake up to Almighty God America! Wake up to ALL of Almighty God's WONDERFUL ETERNAL promises and RIGHTEOUSNESS, which is found in Jesus Christ!
Beloved, wake up to Almighty God America! Wake up to ALL of Almighty God's WONDERFUL ETERNAL promises and RIGHTEOUSNESS, which is found in Jesus Christ! Not a popular message but one ETERNALLY filled with ETERNAL hope! No King but the Lord Jesus is my cry till He comes! Maranatha!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!
Just a note; America is not Babylon of Rev. 17-18 but the parallels are quite sobering! Also, Bible verses relating to Israel have been used to parallel America godly founding

What Kind of Fool Would We Be to Go Without Almighty God's RIGHTEOUS Presence? A Song of Testimony and Praise!
Dear friends, what kind of FOOL would we be if we were to go forth in this evil life without our ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Savior's PRESENCE and PERFECT will for our journey (Ex. 33:14-15, Psalm 23, Prov. 3:5-6, John 10:27-30)? This song of personal testimony challenges us to hear our Lamb and Shepherd's voice and not to leave Him out of any decision that we make! Dear friends, NEVER deviate nor leave His PERFECT WILL and PLAN for your life! Hear His still small voice and the Spirit's direction and you will ALWAYS BE SAFE in the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS arms and risen nail-pierced hands of your precious Jesus (Matt. 4:18-20, John 10:27-30, Phil. 2:12-13, Rev. 1:17-18)!
(Psalm 23, Isa. 12:2, 26:3-4, 50:10, John 10, Phil. 4:4-7). Beloved, stay on His narrow road; as the voice of your ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS Lamb, Savior and Shepherd leads, directs and comforts our hearts all the way home (Prov. 3:5-6, John 10:27-30, Heb. 11:6)! God speed (1 Cor. 10:31)!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

ONLY in Jesus Christ is there TRUE and TOTAL deliverance and liberation from the horrific ravishings of the flesh and its control, power, and tyranny (John 8:32,36, Rom. 7:24-25, 8:1-14). In light of our post-Judeo/Christian America, do you know the ETERNAL RIGHTEOUS LOVE of Almighty God, which is found ONLY in His Son Jesus Christ (John 3:16-17)? God so LOVED YOU that he sent His Son to pay the price for your transgressions against the RIGHTEOUS standards of Almighty God (John 3:16-17, Rom. 3:23; 10:4; 1 Peter 3:18, 1 John 4:10).
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

As the days become EXPONENTIALLY darker and lawless here in America and in our world, may you be sure that you personally know the Savior of the world (the Lord Jesus Christ) as the Holy Scriptures teach! He ALONE is our ONLY hope for deliverance from what is to come (Gal. 1:4, Eph. 2:1-10, Rev. 6-19)! Have FAITH in Almighty God!
The Kingdom of Heaven is at hand!

Much has changed in America in the last 2 years! The hope and joy that once filled American have turned to great despair and dread concern for many of its inhabitants. My dear friends, as I look at America at present I truly believe that this very well could be our last true 4th of July we will celebrate and remember as a nation as regarding our founding. Whoever is to be elected in this coming presidential election nothing good will come of it at all. We as a nation are on the Titanic with just minutes to go until our final implosion morally, fiscally, and socially. Our nation has been never more divided ideology wise and at accelerating speeds we are seeing the demonetization of our Judeo/Christian founding and all that is moral and virtuous (Isa. 5:20). We have had many great challenges before in our nation's past but we have never experienced an inward hostile take over of our three branches of government as we have seen of late. The jig is finally up America and the Four Horsemen are at the door to begin their ride and NOTHING is going to stop that now! The Kingdom of Heaven is TRULY at hand!
leftist preparation and incrementalism have finally paid off and they have seized the power and are now implementing their socialistic secular lawless tyrannical agenda full bore. This present state of helplessness and great concern has now finally engulfed the hearts of those Americans who had once clung onto optimistic appraisals and hopes. They have now finally come to understand that the very hour in which they are now living in is indeed the end of America. Great worry and concern are now found throughout the New Media and in the conservative movement in general. Optimistic appraisals of our return to our Founder's vision for America are now but a vapor and the reality of our nation's estate have finally set in frightening those who now understand and can see that the implosion (morally and fiscally) of our nation is at hand and lawlessness, tyranny and governmental slavery are at our very door.
Optimistic appraises of our return to our Founder's vision for America are now but a vapor and the reality of our nation's estate have finally set in.
I would liken our nation to a loved one, who has been hit by a car and is in the critical care unit of the hospital. He shows possible signs of recovery and there is great relief among his loved ones at the future prospect that he will survive and get some of his functions back. He will not be fully restored to the way he once was, but at least he will be with us and we can love him. Then... the doctor purposely prescribes the wrong medications and as a result of this doctor's diabolical deed, our loved one is now placed in a coma and is in a greater state of emergency than the first. He has now received brain damage do to the medication's complications of his poisoning and to continue to live he must be on life support. Our moment of temporary joy and hopeful optimism at our loved one's partial recovery is now turn to great anger, despair and hopelessness. The reality that our loved one will never recover from his doctor's injustice and injury has made us angry and fully grieved, for the reality has now set in that we will never be able to interact or enjoy our loved one again, for he is indeed truly gone and we are helpless to save him. We have tried to do all that is within our power but must now come to the very sobering realization as he lies on life support that he is lost and has not much time left in this world. My friend, that is how I and others now feel about our nation's present estate. The jig is finally up and we fully know that indeed very troubling days of tyranny, lawlessness and oppression are at our very door as a nation... and the world.
This day the Left rejoices in a new "lawless revolution" that has finally taken over the Founding Father's vision of America. The Left celebrates a new nation born to replace our old one which was founded on the Laws of Nature and of Natures God. Almighty God has been finally ousted from our three branches of government and a secular agenda and government is now the new god of America. We look back at what once was America and understand that we are now in a new era, a new realm, a new estate ever-evolving now into a fascist tyrannical state of despotism and anarchy. The American Lefts' fascism, which has hid behind a smiley face for years has now revealed its self to be the consuming Dragon of old (John 8:44, Eph. 6:12, Rev. 12:9). Make no mistakes my friends more is at work here than the hands of lawless man (2 Cor. 4:3-4, Eph.6:12). The Master politician has now set the stage for his soon reception and 666 global state (2 Thess. 2:3-12, Rev. 13) in which none shall escape (1 Thess. 5:1-4, Rev. 6-19).
Our nation's ONLY hope in this dire hour is for each American to turn to Almighty God and to His saving grace. For that is what this little existence here in this fallen world is all about. Almighty God has provided a Savior for time and ETERNITY may it be that you know Him (John 3:16-17).
