The Apocalypse and the Two Witnesses (Apocalypse 11:3,4)
“And I will cause my two witnesses to prophesy a thousand two hundred and sixty days dressed in sackcloth.” These are symbolized by the two olive trees and the two lampstands and are standing before the Lord of the earth” (Apocalypse 11:3,4)
According to the context of Revelation, the Two Witnesses are respectively Moses and Elijah. They are the same ones mentioned in the prophecy of Zechariah: “He said: “These are the two anointed ones who are standing alongside the Lord of the whole earth”” (Zechariah 4:14).
Zechariah 4:1–10 describes a lampstand which represents Zerubbabel as the one who would rebuild the temple in Jerusalem, by the force of the spirit of Jehovah: “He then said to me: “This is the word of Jehovah to Ze·rubʹba·bel: ‘“Not by a military force, nor by power, but by my spirit,” says Jehovah of armies. 7 Who are you, O great mountain? Before Ze·rubʹba·bel you will become a level land. And he will bring out the top stone amid shouts of: “How wonderful! How wonderful!”” (Zechariah 4:6,7).
In Zechariah chapter 4:11–14, the “two anointed ones” seem to be the same as Revelation 11: “I will cause my two witnesses to prophesy for 1,260 days dressed in sackcloth.” These are symbolized by the two olive trees and the two lampstands and are standing before the Lord of the earth” (Revelation 11:3,4). Thees two witnesses are Moses and Eliyah (Elijah), who appeared in the vision ot the transfiguration of Christ with him (Mark 9:1–8 ).
These two representatives of Moses and Eliyah, are two people, but also two congregations (Lampstands), who organize the worldwide preaching of the good news, in the period just before the great tribulation (Matthew 24:14). In the book of Zechariah (5:1,2) and in Revelation, this preaching is described as a plague against Satan’s system (towards the end of the article) (Revelation 8:7 to 15:8 (the plagues of the seven trumpets); Revelation 16:1 at 22:21 (the end) (the plagues of the seven bowls)).
