    There are many different writings on the net on the meaning of the scriptures that tell about the two witnesses of Rev 11:3, but most of these writings are blind shots into darkness, as they fail to give any solid substantiation to what is claimed in them.

    It is really strange to see that some expounders believe the two witnesses to be Moses, Enoch, Elijah, or some other person from the OT time. Such a view cannot be anything but a downright fallacy.

    The two witnesses will be around short time before the fulfilment of Rev 9:15 and Rev 6:13 and after Rev 7:2-3, that is in the time of the start of the second woe. The angel mentioned in Rev 7:2, having the seal of the living God, is the one mentioned in Dan 12:5 as being a man clothed in linen and standing above the waters of the river. He is the man child of Rev 12:5 and the angel having a little scroll in his hand in Rev 10:2. He is Christ in his spiritual coming as "the Branch" (Isa 11:1) that comes up from the roots of the shoot that came up from the stump of Jesse. What I am saying is that Jesus came as the "shoot" and established his apostolic church, but since there afterwards came a total falling-away, which Jesus calls "the night" (John 9:4), only roots were left, for the Beast made war against the saints and defeated them (Rev 13:7).

    This falling-away is the reason why the Branch comes as Bonds, even according to Zech. 11:14, to bind the deceiver with a strong chain as foretold in Rev. 20:1-2, and also according to these words in Matt. 19:28:

    "Verily I say unto you, That ye which have followed me, in the REGENERATION when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of his glory, ye also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel."

    This is a spiritual judgement being held on earth according to Psalm 149 and 2 Thess. 2:8, for the Lord shall judge falsehood by the WORD through the mouth of his witnesses. They will, as is also foretold, EXECUTE THE JUDGEMENT WRITTEN.

    Well, this is the mission of the two witnesses that come in the might and power of the little book of the Lord.

    So what's your big 'Secret About the Two Witnesses?'

    Our Lord has given us much information about the Prophet Enoch and Elijah.

    The two witnesses are the Old and New Testament - as pointed out in scripture they are the two lampstands they are the witnesses of God they are "The Word of the Lord". This is the text from which John borrows.

    They proclaim truth in sackcloth and ashes for 1260 years during the dark ages.

    In Christ,
