Month Theme: The Sons of Oil
Topic: The Two Witnesses
Scripture Reading: Revelation 11:1-13
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
During the great tribulation, the two witnesses of the Book of Revelation will operate together, thereby making it difficult for their enemies to destroy them. The Book of Revelation does not mention the names of the two witnesses. I agree with the notion that these two witnesses are Elijah and Moses but I won’t engage in a debate with anyone who believes otherwise. The identities of the two witnesses are not as important as the fact that they operated together. Although they were individually anointed, they operated together. When we align our anointings with other people’s, we become more anointed to execute our purposes.
The two witnesses will be given power to prophesy for one thousand, two hundred and sixty days (Revelation 11:3-9). If anybody tries to hurt them, fire will come out of their mouths and burn them up. They will have the power to shut Heaven and prevent rain from falling. They will have the power to turn “waters to blood” and smite the earth with plagues as often as they want. They will only be killed by the beast after they “finish their testimony”. The climax of their miraculous lives will be that after being dead for three and a half days, the Spirit of life from God will enter them and they will stand on their feet and in the glaring view of their enemies, ascend to Heaven in a cloud.
In spite of each one having supernatural power, the two witnesses will operate together as a pair instead of individually. It is also important to state that they will still be killed though they are two. It might have been easier to kill them had they been separated – two are always better than one (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12). They fought against their enemies, died and rose from the dead together. Kindred-spirited and like-minded anointings must operate together to make impact and survive the attacks against them.
Prayer: Pray for the grace to be of the right support to the people who need you to fulfil their purpose.
