(Daniel 2:34; Isaiah 28:16; Revelation 11:5-6)
Daniel said the beast would be shattered by a stone cut out without human hands. Isaiah told us that the stone was Christ: “Behold, I am laying in Zion a stone, a tested stone, a costly cornerstone for the foundation, firmly placed. He who believes in it will not be disturbed.”1Isa 28:16
The two witnesses shattered the power of the beast when they preached against the corruption of the Catholic Church.
John said, “Fire flows out of their mouth and devours their enemies; if anyone wants to harm them, they must be killed in this way.”2Rev 11:5 The prophet Jeremiah told us that this fire was the Word of God.3Jer 23:29
John continued his prophecy: “They have the power to shut up the sky in the days of their prophesying.”4Rev 11:6 The Spirit of Christ was the rain poured out by the two witnesses after 3 ½ years, or 1,278 days as years, just as Elijah prayed that it not rain and after 3 ½ years he prayed for rain, and rain watered the earth.5James 5:17-18 Then the saints began to rebuild the Temple of God, as prophesied by Zechariah, “not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit,”6Zech 4:6 which the Targum told us was the Spirit of Christ, the Word.
The two witnesses freed the saints from Mystery Babylon, which John called “the great city mystically called Egypt.”7Rev 11:8 They had “the power to strike the Earth with a plague.”8Rev 11:6
In the Book of Revelation, plagues are spiritual. The Earth represents the people of the world.
The first plague that Moses and Aaron made happen in Egypt involved turning water into blood. John said the two witnesses also had “the power to turn the waters into blood.”9Rev 11:6 The same plague is found in the second bowl of wrath: the angel poured his bowl into the sea, and it became blood, and every living thing died.10Rev 16:3 In the Book of Revelation, the “sea” represents salvation and baptism, and blood represents the spiritual death of those who are baptized in the kingdom of the beast.
