Peace and grace in the love of our Lord Jesus Christ.
11:3 "And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth."
Revelation 11:1 is about the measuring rod or the shepherding word that measures the temple of God and the Golden Altar of Incense so that they fulfil the measurement of God, namely the flesh does not speak anymore or the Veil is torn, so The Ark of Covenant is seen or we reach the perfection.
Revelation 11:2 is about the temple of God which is not measured. It refers to men who reject the true teaching word and do not want to worship God, so their flesh still speaks and they must enter the persecution of the Antichrist who rules over the world for three and a half years. They are persecuted and beheaded to fulfill the measurement of God or the flesh does not speak anymore. Even though they become martyr, they will be resurrected when Jesus comes for the second time.
Revelation 11:3 is about God's sending the two witnesses, namely Moses and Elijah to strengthen the Christians who experience the torment or the persecution of the Antichrist for three and a half years so that they keep on worshiping God, not the Antichrist.
The two witnesses testify the two things as follows:
- [Revelation 11:3] The prophecy word.
It is the word of God which reveals all things which have not happened yet but will happen for sure, especially about the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds and the condemnation of God that will come to the world.
- The experience of the death and the resurrection up to the glory like Jesus.
11:7 When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them.
11:8 And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
11:9 Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves.
11:10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.
11:11 Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them.
The church of God must be watchful about the testimony. Do not only be satisfied or amazed by the testimony of the other people until looking for the physical testimony to everywhere but never experiencing the testimony itself. Consequently, they must enter the persecution of the Antichrist until they receive the testimony of Moses and Elijah to strengthen then to endure in the age of the Antichrist.
Therefore, we must become the witness of God from now on and experience our own testimony.
The two witnesses prophesied for one thousand two hundred and sixty days. It means that we must become the witness of God every day and do not become the stumbling-block.
What must be testified in our daily life?
- We testify the prophecy word which has become an experience in our life.
The prophecy word is the word of God which is revealed by Holy Spirit through one verse that explains other verses in the Bible. It refers to the true teaching word.
It reveals all things which have not happened yet but will happen for sure, especially about the second coming of Jesus as the King of all kings and the heavenly Bridegroom and about His condemnation up to the hell. It also reveals the hidden sins in the congregation to be sanctified. It refers to the word of sanctification or the true teaching word which is sharper than any two-edged sword.
The prophecy word must become the experience of life. It means that we must do it in our daily life, so we experience the sanctification in our whole life as follows:
- The stomach which is full of fat.
3:14 So the children of Israel served Eglon king of Moab eighteen years.
3:15 But when the children of Israel cried out to the LORD, the LORD raised up a deliverer for them: Ehud the son of Gera, the Benjamite, a left-handed man. By him the children of Israel sent tribute to Eglon king of Moab.
3:16 Now Ehud made himself a dagger (it was double-edged and a cubit in length) and fastened it under his clothes on his right thigh.
3:17 So he brought the tribute to Eglon king of Moab. (Now Eglon was a very fat man.)
3:21 Then Ehud reached with his left hand, took the dagger from his right thigh, and thrust it into his belly.
3:22 Even the hilt went in after the blade, and the fat closed over the blade, for he did not draw the dagger out of his belly; and his entrails came out.
3:16 'and the priest shall burn them on the altar as food, an offering made by fire for a sweet aroma; all the fat is the LORD's.
The fat is Lord's. It begins from the smallest one, namely the tithe, the worship, and the bride of God.
The teaching word sanctifies the heart which is ruled by the wicked will or the will of money which makes men steal the tithes and the special offerings that belong to God. For example, they steal the time for doing the service and ministry to God or become unfaithful in the service and ministry to God. Consequently, they are stamped with 666 by the Antichrist or worship the Antichrist until they become the same as the Antichrist who will be destroyed.
When the heart is sanctified, we can give the tithes and the special offering which belong to God and be faithful in the service and ministry and worship to God.
- The hands. We are sanctified from the deeds of sins up to the peak.
149:6 Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand.
So, we can do the right, holy, and well-pleasing deeds before God.
- The mouth. We are sanctified from the idle words, lies, gossip, slander, et cetera.
So, the mouth produces the holy words which are well-pleasing to other people and glorify God.
3:2 For we all stumble in many things. If anyone does not stumble in word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the whole body.
It continuous until we do not stumble in words anymore or we are as perfect as Jesus. There is no blemish anymore and we become the light of the world like Jesus.
12:1 Now a great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet, and on her head a garland of twelve stars.
12:4 His tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and threw them to the earth. And the dragon stood before the woman who was ready to give birth, to devour her Child as soon as it was born
12:6 Then the woman fled into the wilderness, where she has a place prepared by God, that they should feed her there one thousand two hundred and sixty days.
The perfect church of God will be given the two wings of a great eagle to fly them to the wilderness for one thousand two hundred and sixty days, far away from the eyes of the serpent.
12:14 But the woman was given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness to her place, where she is nourished for a time and times and half a time, from the presence of the serpent.
In the wilderness, we are protected and preserved by God for three and a half years or one thousand two hundred and sixty days. It means that we are protected and preserved by God every day. It starts from nowadays, at the wilderness through the true teaching word and Holy Communion up to the eternal life.
Our daily life depends on the sanctification. The more we are holy, the more we are preserved.
- We testify about the experience of death and resurrection or the experience of the cross with Jesus.
The facts found in the experience of the cross with Jesus are as follows:
The results are as follows:
- We willingly suffer in flesh to stop sinning and return to God.
1 Peter 4:1-2
4:1 Therefore, since Christ suffered for us in the flesh, arm yourselves also with the same mind, for he who has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin,
4:2 that he no longer should live the rest of his time in the flesh for the lusts of men, but for the will of God.
It means that we stop sinning and live in the righteousness or the will of God.
- We willingly suffer in flesh without any sins with Jesus.
2 Corinthians 4:16-17
4:16 Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.
4:17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory..
For example, we serve and minister to God, sacrifice, and suffer because we are slandered, et cetera.
Why must there be the cross? So that we experience the renewal from the fleshly man to the spiritual one like Jesus. We are renewed. It starts from not losing heart, but being strong and courageous
3:16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man.
We are neither disappointed nor hopeless and we do not leave God when facing anything, but always give thanks, serve and minister to God faithfully and fervently in spirit, live in righteousness and holiness, trust, hope, and worship God.
- Holy Spirit works to give the peace for us.
26:2 Open the gates, That the righteous nation which keeps the truth may enter in.
26:3 You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on You, Because he trusts in You.
There are spiritual protection and preservation, so we feel easy and light.
The peaceful heart is a strong foundation to receive His physical protection and preservation.
Holy Spirit opens the doors for us, so there are solutions to our impossible problems and the door of the successful beautiful future life.
- Holy Spirit is able to change the bitter thing into the sweet one.
15:25 So he cried out to the LORD, and the LORD showed him a tree. When he cast it into the waters, the waters were made sweet. There He made a statute and an ordinance for them. And there He tested them,
15:26 and said, "If you diligently heed the voice of the LORD your God and do what is right in His sight, give ear to His commandments and keep all His statutes, I will put none of the diseases on you which I have brought on the Egyptians. For I am the LORD who heals you."
The rotten things are changed into the sweet smelling aroma, the broken ones into the good ones. He protects us from the disease which attacks the world and heals us from the physical diseases, and the house-hold and the economy disease.
- Holy Spirit sanctifies and changes us until we are perfect.
50:7 "For the Lord GOD will help Me; Therefore I will not be disgraced; Therefore I have set My face like a flint, And I know that I will not be ashamed.
There are no spot or blemish, so we are worthy to welcome the second coming of Jesus on the glorious clouds.
God blesses you.
