Who Are the Two Witnesses?

The two witnesses represent the martyrs of the tribulation...
The two witnesses represent the tribulation saints…

“And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.” – Daniel 12:7

The two witnesses represent the true followers of Christ who are either killed for their faith during the tribulation or overcome until Jesus Christ’s return… we read about this group in Revelation 20…

“And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.”  – Revelation 20:4

During the great tribulation a death sentence will be passed on all those who refuse to worship the beasts image…

“And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that 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.” – Revelation 13:15

The great tribulation will feature a genocidal purge of humanity the likes of which has never been seen. Christians will be the prime focal point. Though many Christians will survive through to the end, a lot of them will be martyred.

When the last Christian that is to be martyred dies, then the power of the holy people is completely shattered. The death of the two witnesses represents the complete shattering of the holy people of Daniel 12 – it comes to its fullness at the end of the great tribulation.

“And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.” – Revelation 6:11

There is a set predetermined number of martyrs who will die, when that has been fulfilled then the two witnesses are slain. In other words, as the power of the holy people is shattered at the end of the tribulation so to are the two witnesses slain. The two martyrs coming to life is none other than the first resurrection…

“And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. ” – Revelation 11:11-12

This is the first resurrection. All Christians will be resurrected at that time, but the first resurrection pertains especially to the resurrection of a certain group of believers who overcame during the great tribulation.

This very same group of martyrs that are symbolized by the two witnesses are also symbolized by the 144,000. Revelation 15 gives us the key to see this…

“And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark, and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.” – Revelation 15:2

This is the same group spoken of in Revelation 20:4…

And notice the harps and the song they are singing? The 144,000 are seen doing the same thing…

“And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. ” – Revelation 14:2-4

These are the saints who are overcame the beast and his mark. It is they who are called the two witnesses, it is they who partake of the first resurrection and reign during the millennium.

Regarding rev 20,4, that is the first and second advents, the first election lived a different life than me, I didn’t see the arms and legs put back on in the street Ect.. ive never walked on water. I cant be judged under the same conditions. Father is fair and just, blessed are those who believe and never seen. You sir are not rightly dividing Gods word. Regarding rev 13,15, ill put it this way
