Vindication Part 4: The Two Witnesses of Revelations 11

They are the same people referred as the two banners of Isaiah 11:10-12, the two olive branches of Zechariah 4:11-14 and the two harvesters of Revelations 14:14-17.

Let us continue this series of articles that we have prepared about the promise of the Lord concerning my vindication.

The Scriptures are about the history of Jesus: the prefigured Jesus of the Old Testament through the rites and ceremonies, and the historical Jesus who completes or fulfills the prophecy of the Old Testament.  Jesus is who gives true meaning to the Scriptures.  Therefore, that history which is written on both testaments was previously inspired so it could be written and preserved to our days.  However, there is a task in Revelations 10 about the angel or messenger who will carry out this mission.

As you may recall, in our past article we analyzed Revelations 10 and we clearly saw that the execution of this task described by John in this chapter, was not carried out by John himself for he was only the one who received the revelation and wrote it down in Scriptures, in the book he was commanded to write, that is, the Book of Revelations.  John writes it down but it is at the end time when God’s order to preach again (on regards to the little book, which is the final revelation) takes place.

Notice that the small scroll or book of (Revelations 10:8) is a book that it is not apart from the Scriptures, for all of God’s revelation is contained in the Inspired Word.  However, it can also be considered separated for it is the last revealing content—it is in this sense that we can say it is apart of the rest of the Scriptures.  That is, there is a final, emphatic theological preaching that constitutes another series of doctrines that will culminate what the Bible presents.

Revelations is the last book of the Scriptures, but Revelations has been veiled.  Even biblical scholars admit that it has been partly veiled, and for this reason it hasn’t been fully understood. To John it is told: “Seal up the words of the book”.  It is like saying the same words that were told to Daniel: “Seal the book until the time of the end”; “do not worry to understand it in detail for you are not carry it out”.  We must then understand that John writes these things and receives the content of the little scroll as a representative of the last of the prophets (the prophetic call of this end time which will complete God’s work for Christ’s to come).

Therefore we must understand that John writes these things and carries them out.  The taking of the little book is a representation of the final prophetic call, the prophetic call for this period of time when we are about to complete God’s work prior to Christ Second Coming.  However, before Christ’s return there is a post-figurative work that the Lord has told me I will carry out and, as a basic sign, which is fundamental to the fact, is this Vindication that I have been talking about.  I am going to complete this work; in order to achieve this I will be constituted as a sign, a post-figure of Christ—that is, I’m going to be vindicated, restored to an age of approximately 25 to 30 years old.

This has been His promise and He has told me to preach about this and it is necessary for me to announce it beforehand so when things are fulfilled, then, we may recall that these words were said before things occurred.  I will once again say:  “Do not believe in me but be aware of the facts for this is the only thing that matters in this case”.  This is my call to the people of Puerto Rico and the world.  I am not asking you to blindly believe in me but to wait patiently for if it happens that nothing occurs you will have not lost anything, but if it happens and you are found a biased enemy of this ministry, of this servant of yours, then you will be in deep trouble.

Now, many distortions have been made by a misuse of the book of Revelations.  One of these distortions is to say that everything foretold in Revelations has been already fulfilled.  But this is not true.  There are some things in the book of Revelations are yet to be fulfilled but will be fulfilled on the following days and towards that we are headed.In this article we will take into consideration Revelations chapter 11.  It is good for us to understand that Revelations 10 and 11 are both in context and follow the same thread of thought.  From verse 1 of Revelations 11 there’s a clear continuation of what it was previously told in Revelation 10.  Let us read Revelations 11:1;

“Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod…”
(Revelations 11:1)

Let me highlight the word “then”, which gives continuation to the thread of thought John has been presenting.  “Then”, that is, after the instruction given to him to “preach again” then he receives a measuring rod.  I will say this again, John receives this task as a representative, but not as the one who carries out this work at the End Times—and we are already living those days.  This event takes place at “the sound of the seventh trumpet” meaning the end of history.  Therefore, there will be a person carrying out this work. On verse 2 it reads;

“But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles.
And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two months”

(Revelations 11:2)

John receives a measuring rod and he is asked to measure the altar and the temple, but to leave the outside court, for it is given to the Gentiles.  In other words, the measuring of the temple is to belong to ancient times, but the measuring of the outside court outside belongs to this End time.  It is me, this servant of yours, who has been chosen to preach for about 1,260 days after my Vindication; these are literal words of the great Master, our Lord Jesus, who, as I have already told you, speaks to me frequently.  Let us continue reading:

“And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth”
(Revelations 11:3)

In fact, the two witnesses are two men just as the lord Jesus has declared to me by saying:  “You are the one who fulfills this prophecy.  I have chosen you to be my other witness.” When I return, I will have about 3 ½  years to preach—This will be the approximate duration of my ministry, as it was the duration of Christ’s—and you know I am telling you the truth.  In fact, it will be by the middle of the week or 3 ½ days.  Let us continue reading on chapter 11;

“These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth”
(Revelations 11:4)

They are the two olive trees in a figurative sense.  Pay attention to this: Evidently you cannot take away Christ as the cultivated olive tree.  You just can’t count him out from this symbolism as many so-call Christian ideologies tend to do when saying that the two witnesses (olive trees) are Elijah and Moses.  The fact is that Christ is the cultivated olive tree; Christ is the light of the world.  Pay attention to these words:  the two witnesses constitute two olive trees; and the two lampstands are a representation of two men, which are stand before God’s altar and perspective.
In addition, notice that this biblical passage makes a reference to God, for the Lord of the whole earth is God as it is proven in this context.  Now, let us continue reading about the two witnesses.

“And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies.  And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner.
(Revelations 11:5)

“These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire”
(Revelations 11:6)

The book of Revelations is highly symbolic.  If we are to interpret properly the words written in this passage we must admit that when it says, “so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy” it doesn’t mean that it will literally stop raining for rain itself cannot stop the preaching.  To give you an example, if there’s a heavy rain while I’m preaching, that rain will not stop my preaching.  So, these words cannot be understood in its literal form in a way that not a single drop of water will fall from the sky.  The expression “no rain falls” connotes the equivalent of saying “holding the four winds of the earth in the days of their preaching, and that after they prophesy or give testimony, then they will unleash the waters which are a symbol of judgment.  Wasn’t that the case when the ancient world was destroyed by the Flood?  Right?

I am bringing to you clear interpretative notions so you can understand what Revelations 11 really says,

“These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire”
(Revelations 11:6)

In other words, they have great authority.  This authority is always given by God, and it is granted to them so in the days of their preaching no rain falls—which means that no worldwide catastrophic event will take place during that period of time so they can complete their mission of about 3 ½ years.  Time in Scriptures is not chronometrical and I say this over and over, and in addition, those who have insisted to place a date have always ended up disappointed.  Therefore, times, are in reality approximations, which means that events can occur before or after a given period of time for they depend on the circumstances.  We should pay more attention to the facts or events, not to specific dates.  This is what really counts.  An event may occur anytime.

Let me bring you an example of this so you can clearly see that exact dates do not count at all: of Christ it was foretold that He would spent three days and three nights in the tomb.  But the real fact shows that He didn’t even spent two.  Now, does this detail affect the fact that He indeed, die and rose from the dead?  What is important here is that He died and resurrected, not how many hours He spent in the tomb.  So, I bring this example as evidence of my interpretative method which proves that I am correct.  Let us continue reading on verse 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” 
(Revelations 11:7)

When did the beast kill Moses?  Moses had a natural death: When did the beast kill Elijah? Elijah was taken up by a chariot of fire.  Can you now see that they could not be the two witnesses?  It is impossible for them to be so.  Besides, the two witnesses will be killed on earth, and they will stand again on their feet —one of them was Christ.  Christ completed his mission of placing the only foundation for salvation, his righteousness.  Christ was humiliated but rose up again—the breath of life entered Him and rose up from the dead.  These passages are not saying that these two witnesses would be in action at the same period of time—This is imperative for you to know.  One constitutes the first woe and the other constitutes the second woe.  We will speak of these things a bit further.

“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”  
(Revelation 11:8)

What is the great City? The fact is that their dead bodies will be ridiculed and will not allow them to be put into graves.  However, and pay attention to these clear words for they are spoken in figurative language.  Do you want any proof?  Let us continue reading,

“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”
(Revelation 11:8)

Can you see?   Now, which one is it, Sodom or Egypt?  Neither. It means the whole earth.  Sodom and Egypt are a representation of the earth.  This is how these passages should be interpreted. Avoid standing in the same standpoint as the Seventh-day Adventists who say that it was in France where the Bible was buried, for in the first place the Bible is not the point in these passages.  The Bible or the Two Testaments are mentioned in these passages but without an interpreter they constitute inert matter.  For every biblical reading there must be an interpreter.  Without an interpreter there is huge confusion.  Therefore, let’s go to the real facts:  These passages are speaking of two men—and they are neither Elijah nor Moses—and that’s for sure.  Now, Pay attention to the following words’ “which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified” (Revelations 11:8).

What these verses are saying is that God was also crucified; that is, that in addition to Christ (who was literally crucified) God was also crucified.  Do you know why?  Because “God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself” (2 Corinthians 5:19).  In other words, Christ was a representative of God and whatever happened to Christ was also happening to God.  In order to clearly prove this to you, let me bring in advance a verse that will allow you to see this great truth.  Let us read on verse 15 of this same chapter 11 of Revelations so you can see without a doubt that we are in a precise and clear thread of thought.  Let us read:

Then the seventh angel sounded: And there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdoms of this world have become the kingdoms of our Lord and of His Christ, and He shall reign forever and ever!”
(Revelations 11:15)

In about 99% of times when we see the word Lord in Revelations it is making reference to God the Father, not to Christ himself.  That is why when you read about the throne on Revelations 21 it says, “the throne of God and the Lamb” You must understand that in Christ there is a convergences, a double nature; His divine nature which makes him a legitimate representative of God and beyond that, it is what makes of Him God, as written, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1).—and His human nature. Thus this convergence of nature’s sheds light to the definition of the term Lord, which means God, the Father, and that the God of the two witnesses is the Father, and this fact does not discard or deny the human nature of Christ who is one of the two witnesses.  So, why aren’t we sincere enough with ourselves and accept that this is an interpretation that has been given to me, revealed to me by the Lord Jesus himself?

The teaching that establishes that Elijah and Moses are the two witnesses is a gross error.  We will prove to you that this idea (about Elijah and Moses) is impossible.  I have already told you that Elijah and Moses weren’t killed by the beast, that Elijah and Moses are already living in their resurrected body—as it can be inferred from the fact that they were seen at the Mount of Transfiguration. Isn’t?  Elijah, the name “Elijah”, is used in Scripture to refer to Christ; when Christ came some called him: “he is Elijah who is to come” (Matthew 11:14).  This declaration is true, Christ was the Elijah, for the same “Elijah” connotes that the spirit of prophecy will be present once again in history, “and this is what this expression is alluding for Elijah was taken up to heaven in a chariot of fire, and you will see that this is the way it happens here.  Let us continue reading;

“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”
(Revelations 11:9)

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…
(Revelations 11:10)

It is clearly understood that they tormented the inhabitants of the Earth, by the preaching of the truth.  This is clearly understood.  This is the reason why the people of the earth in those days were satisfied when Christ died, and thought “we got rid of him” for there is no worst torture than having to hear a man who in the name of God sets the truth and denounces them:  To set the truth means to put on the spotlight the vast majority of the human race, which results many times in slandering and personal attacks against the true Christian.  The rest of the population becomes jealous of the one who has understood the truth of God and resent him.  As it is written in the Scriptures “all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution”, will receive the knocker of the world and the ignominy by part of men.

In real life, many celebrated when Christ died, and when I die many will also will celebrate.  Now, let us continue reading so you can see what’s going to happen.  The Inspiration continues;

“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”
(Revelations 11)

Notice that this event does not occur simultaneously but in different times in history: Christ already rose from the dead and ascended to heaven; now it is my turn as a post-figure of Christ as He has declared unto me.  The sequence of events of what Christ has told me can be summarized the following way:  I am to be taken up soon—I don’t know of any date or time —but he told me “in any moment” and “prepare a proper background for your departure”.  I will ascend, I will be vindicated and I will come down from heaven with the message of the final revelation, fulfilling this way the prophecy of Revelations 18:1; After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory” (Revelations 18:1), which will also occur at the end of times.  The message of this angel is highlighted here: “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!”  There is no one around the world that is carrying out this task but, this servant of yours.  Who is preaching the truth, the eternal gospel, and doctrines which are in total harmony with the Eternal Gospel, and at the same time denouncing Babylon and its theological confusion?

You may request the writings —which I have— of the message I have been preaching for the past 12 years which has to do with the uncovering and refuting of Babylon which is the shelter of every unclean and hateful spirit.  The fallen angels are lurking every charismatic church, which are the unclean and hateful birds that brings confusion to the world.  Those congregations do not know what the Gospel is no future hope, peace and love is ever preached for they only preach personal experiences and subjectivism.  I will ascend to heaven and will receive the revelation or “eat the little book”.  The fact is that this process begins here; that is, I begin to eat the little book here on earth.  I have been uncovering and refuting Babylon for about 12 years—this is the message preached by the angel who comes down from heaven of Revelations 18:1.  I have been denouncing Babylon on TV and radio in Puerto Rico (14 years in radio, and 2 years on TV) and we will continue to do so until the Lord as He did with Elijah and as He did with Moses, and as He has done so with many others like Paul who was also taken up to heaven (2 Corinthians 12:2).  I will be going through a similar experience.

Of course, when I come down from heaven, I will do so with the last warning message from God to a world in chaos.  The content of this message is the same as that of the little book that was given to John with the last revelation regarding the things that are to happen prior to the Second Coming of Christ.  This will be a judicial mission, a preamble to the Judgment Day or the final verdict the Lord will bring.  When the Lord comes He will separate the sheep from the goats, He will come with the final verdict.  This is a preparation for the harvesting of the redeemed as declared on Revelations 14.

Let us read the last verses of this chapter.  Remember that when the two witnesses were killed the people of the world gloated and rejoiced exceedingly; just as it happened when Christ died, and they will gloat again happen now when I do.  But this will also happen;

 “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”
(Revelations 11:11)

Why did they feel great terror?  Because they accursed them, they put them into shame, they killed them and then great fear overtake the unbeliever; that is how it will now happen with me this servant of yours.

“And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.”
And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them” 

(Revelations 11:12)

Christ said unto me, “when this happens to you, you will hear the father’s voice just as I did”.  This ascension will take place right in front of my enemies’ eyes but not yet.  This time I will be taken up to heaven, to be vindicated, and sent back to earth to complete my mission, and it is after this that I will be killed just as Christ was also killed— don’t know by which method yet.  I won’t be crucified like Jesus because the Calvary cannot be repeated, but I know that in one way or the other.   They will persecute me, bar me and kill me.  Then, the breath of life from God will enter me, I will stand back on my feet and I will ascend to return back to the Lord Jesus.  This is the correct order of events, Revelations 11:13 says the following:

“In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven”
(Revelations 11:13)

They are not meant to be exactly 7,000 in a literal form, for seven has always mean totality in other words the vast majority of humanity will die.  Then the chapter ends saying;

“The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming quickly”
(Revelations 11:14)

The third woe will happen with the Second Coming of Christ. The first woe already took place with Christ first coming to earth, the second woe will take place with me, and the third woe will take place when Christ comes to harvest the earth.
