(3) ... The Two End-Time "Witnesses"

Many people believe that the "two end-time Witnesses" will be Elijah and Enoch, or Elijah and Moses.

Enoch, Elijah and Moses in their day fulfilled God's purposes for them. Throughout history there have been certain generations in which God has "raised up" certain individuals to carry out a specific task for Him. The same will be true for the generation that we are now living in. It is important to emphasize strongly the term "raised up." We find throughout Scripture that the Lord "raised up" His Prophets.

One very important fact is the fact that there is no place in the Bible that states that the "two end-time Witnesses" are sent from Heaven. If that were the case, then it would have been clearly stated in the Bible.

Because of the "enormity" of the task that the Lord will assign to the "two end-time Witnesses," that just like Moses, the Lord will first take them through many years of a Spiritual wilderness experience which will be His method of development and training for them. The "two end-time Prophets" will not be newly converted Christians. They will be seasoned Prophets who have withstood the test of time.

The Lord is not going to transport someone from several thousand years ago to fulfill a particular task in this generation. The Lord will do what He has always done, which in this case will be to "raise up" someone from this generation to fulfill the role of the "two end-time Witnesses" in this generation.

Please take special note that I am putting special emphasis on being "raised up for this generation."

The Bible clearly points out to us that the Lord delights in "raising up" people to fulfill a particular task that He has for them in their generation. Throughout the Bible, God shows us time and time again that He is in the "raising up" business.

In Matthew 3:9 Jesus told the Jewish people to not look back to Abraham, that God was able to "raise up" stones to fulfill His purposes.

There is zero doubt in my mind that they are alive at this present time of December, 2017. It is quite possible at this present time of December, 2017 that they do not even know that the Lord has chosen them to be the "two end-time Witnesses."

As explained earlier in this article, the "enormity" of the task that the Lord will assign to the "two end-time Witnesses" will require that they go through many years of a Spiritual wilderness experience which will be the Lord's method of development and training for them.

It is my belief that at the time that the Lord reveals to them that they are the "two end-time Witnesses," that HE will not immediately thrust them into functioning in their role as the "two end-time Witnesses."

It is my belief that the Lord will likely reveal to them their role as the "two end-time Witnesses" a few months in advance or maybe even longer before being thrust into functioning in their role as the "two end-time Witnesses." This unveiling of their assignment from the Lord may be a step by step process of coming to an understanding that they have been chosen for their role as the "two end-time Witnesses."

It is my belief that the "two end-time Witnesses" will need to know their role a few months in advance or maybe even longer, in order to fully come to terms that they have been chosen for such an "enormous" task from the Lord. Also, they will most likely still need further development and training of a different sort from the Lord before stepping into their role as the "two end-time Witnesses."

It is my belief that one of the "two end-time Witnesses" will be a Jewish Prophet. And just as Paul was an apostle to the Gentiles, the other Witness of the "two end-time Witnesses" will be a Prophet of the Gentiles.

Even though the "two end-time Witnesses" will both at the end of their ministry, lie dead in the streets of Jerusalem for 3 ½ days, it may very well be that they will work independently from one another during their ministry.
