(7) Prophetic Dichotomies (Truth vs Lies, Fallacies and Deceptions). Two True Witnesses or Prophets vs One False Witness or Prophet
TWO TRUE WITNESSES or ‘PROPHETS’:
Four-fold Reference to the Two Supernatural Witnesses:
“And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.” (Rev. 11:3).
“These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.” (Rev. 11:4).
“And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.” (Rev. 11:10).
Commentary: two (2) a double, solid confirmation of a matter or subject. God didn’t send one or three supernatural entities, he sent two (2). They are described as two (2) witnesses, olive trees, candlesticks and prophets. As two (2) witnesses, they provide a testimony to the saving gospel of Jesus Christ, through his forgiveness of sins, through his shedding of blood and through his resurrection. All that evil men have to do is confess their sins, believe in Jesus Christ and confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Since this is during the Tribulation, any man who accepts the gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ, will most likely also end up being martyred and beheaded for their belief in Jesus Christ. As two (2) prophets, they prophesy to evil men throughout the world as to what is coming in the days, weeks, months and years ahead. As two (2) candlesticks, they are metaphors for shining the light of Christ into a dark, evil world. As two (2) olive trees, they bear fruit in faithfully representing Christ and spreading the good news of his salvation for evil men. Not surprisingly, evil men are “tormented” by these two witnesses or prophets. They don’t want to hear the gospel of Jesus Christ. They reject it. They are distraught over having their consciences constantly tweeked by these two witnesses who remind them, time and time again, to give up being evil and to turn to Christ. They don’t want to hear it. They are comfortable and happy in continuing to do whatever evil it is that they are doing.
These evil men wish that the two (2) prophets would just die, and go away and leave them alone. These two (2) prophets are a continual reminder, for the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation, that what men are doing is evil in the sight of God. Evil men reject and deny everything they hear from the two (2) witnesses. Evil men can’t get rid of, or kill these two (2) prophets since God has given them supernatural power to be able to withstand any forceable attempt on their life. Additionally, they are able to physically torment evil men with various supernatural plagues, as they see fit. The two (2) supernatural witnesses or prophets are God’s last attempt at using holy men to try to reach the minds and spirits of evil men with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Ultimately, the Beast/Antichrist is allowed to kill these two (2) witnesses and their bodies will lay out in the open street for 3 ½ days, decaying and decomposing, for the whole world to see. The whole world is so ecstatic that these two (2) prophets have been killed, that they celebrate, “rejoice and make merry” and “buy one another gifts.” After the 3 ½ days, God resurrects the two (2) witnesses and instructs them to “come up hither” in heaven (home). God’s patience has run out in using holy men, words, logic, mathematics, symbolism, meanings, testimonies and exhortations in trying to get evil men to willingly repent of their sins and evil actions. For the most part, all of the efforts of the two (2) witnesses have fallen on deaf ears, blind eyes, dumb minds and on the deceived spirits of evil men. In summary, the four-fold references of them being witnesses, olive trees, candlesticks and prophets attests to their purpose and ministry on earth during the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation.
ONE FALSE WITNESS or PROPHET (POPE OR PONTIFF)
Seven-fold Evils of the False Prophet:
“And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. And he exerciseth all the power of first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men.” (Rev. 13:11-13).
“And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.” (Rev. 13:14-15).
“And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom, Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of man; and his number is Six hundred three-score and six.” (Rev. 13:16-18).
- Exercises all the demonic power of the antichrist. (Rev. 13:12)
- Causes people on the earth to worship the beast/antichrist. (Rev. 13:12)
- Deceives those on earth by false miracles or wonders, but is only able to do these when the antichrist is present. (Rev. 13:13-14)
- Requires people on earth to build an image of the beast/antichrist. (Rev. 13:14)
- Gives false life to the man-made image enabling it to speak. (Rev. 13:15)
- Forces all people to receive the antichrist’s mark of ownership in their forehead or right hand, forces buying and selling to be contingent upon having this mark. Causes the martyrdom of those not willing to worship the beast or his image. (Rev. 13:15-17)
- Causes people on earth to worship the beast’s image. (Rev. 13:15)
The False Prophet is the Antichrist’s ‘right hand’ man, propaganda minister, and #1 cheerleader, in an all-in-one package. A ‘yes’ man of the most evil sort. Adolf Hitler had very similar people operating in this capacity during his evil attempt to enslave the world. The False Prophet will be demonically or satanically inspired to perform the deceit and false miracles that lead the weak-minded and spiritually dead to falsely worship the Beast/Antichrist. Interestingly, the False Prophet can only conduct these false miracles when he is in sight/proximity to the Beast. This indicates that Satan’s power is not omnipresent, but can only be conveyed to a willing participant within close proximity to Satan. Whereas God’s power is unlimited by time and space, Satan’s power is not and is strictly limited. Just as Hitler forced the Jews to take a tattoo or mark of the Star of David, for identification, so too will the Beast/Antichrist force citizens to take his mark for identification. Additionally, Hitler forced Jews to have a number tattooed on them in concentration camps, for more detailed recognition and identification. Scripture continues to tell us that the Antichrist/Beast will also force the number of his name to be forced onto people. The False Prophet is also the ringleader to get men to make a false image(s) of the beast and to have men worship it. The False Prophet is the enabler of spiritual fornication on a global, worldwide scale all with the endorsement, approval, sanctioning and blessing from the Beast. Satan gives the False Prophet just enough power, through the Beast/Antichrist, to ensure this satanic abomination is accomplished.
But how can (7) they call on him (Jesus Christ) to save (7) them unless they believe in Him (Jesus Christ)? (7) And how can they believe in Him (7) (Jesus Christ) if they have never heard about (7) Him (Jesus Christ)? And how can they hear (7) about Him (Jesus Christ) unless someone tells them?” Romans 10:14 (777777)
