New King James Version
Vision of the Lampstand and Olive Trees
1 Now the angel who talked with me came back and wakened me, as a man who is wakened out of his sleep. 2 And he said to me, “What do you see?”
So I said, “I am looking, and there is a lampstand of solid gold with a bowl on top of it, and on the stand seven lamps with seven pipes to the seven lamps. 3 Two olive trees are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left.” 4 So I answered and spoke to the angel who talked with me, saying, “What are these, my lord?”
5 Then the angel who talked with me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?”
And I said, “No, my lord.”
6 So he answered and said to me:
“This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel:
‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’
Says the Lord of hosts.
7 ‘Who are you, O great mountain?
Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain!
And he shall bring forth the capstone
With shouts of “Grace, grace to it!” ’ ”
8 Moreover the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
9 “The hands of Zerubbabel
Have laid the foundation of this [a]temple;
His hands shall also finish it.
Then you will know
That the Lord of hosts has sent Me to you.
10 For who has despised the day of small things?
For these seven rejoice to see
The plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.
They are the eyes of the Lord,
Which scan to and fro throughout the whole earth.”
11 Then I answered and said to him, “What are these two olive trees—at the right of the lampstand and at its left?” 12 And I further answered and said to him, “What are these two olive branches that drip into the receptacles of the two gold pipes from which the golden oil drains?”
13 Then he answered me and said, “Do you not know what these are?”
And I said, “No, my lord.”
14 So he said, “These are the two anointed ones, who stand beside the Lord of the whole earth.”
New King James Version
1 Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel stood, saying, “Rise and measure the temple of God, the altar, and those who worship there. 2 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. 3 And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.”
4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands standing before the God of the earth. 5 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. 6 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.
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. 8 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. 9 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. 10 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.
11 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. 12 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. 13 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.
Hello again Everyone!!
Yet more incredibly exciting and wonderful revelatory understandings from the Lord through His Written Word, and confirmed by His Rhema Word, through His body! HALLELUJAH!! GLORY TO GOD!!
A few days ago while reading The Word of God, The Lord led me to Zechariah 4. I love it when The Lord brings my “eye” to a fresh perspective to open up deeper understanding!! PRAISE JESUS!! Well, I was amazed, as I began reading, at how clear it was that this is a “sister/mirror” Old Testament scripture to Revelation chapter 11 about The Two Witnesses. And how MUCH of it confirms everything NEW that The Lord has already revealed to us!! I was SO excited!!
So I got a hold of Allyson, and we pulled up the scripture and started to go over it together. She mentioned that we have talked about it in the past, but we've never really broken it down, and really connected everything. But of course the Lord has His appointed time for everything! Faith to faith, and glory to glory! Praise Jesus!
Ok, now, the revelatory understanding The Lord has opened up to us is this…in reading through this chapter, and walking through each of the details, He showed us that just as in Revelation 11, the “Two olive Trees” (verse 3), and “Two Anointed Ones” (verse 14), represent what The Lord has revealed to us as, “The Corporate Body of The Two Witnesses!!
And then we sought the Lord on what the oil dripping from the trees represented, as well as the gold bowl that was hovering over the menorah in verses 2 & 12. What the Lord showed us is such a beautiful picture! The oil dripping from the two trees into to the two gold pipes is the Oil of Anointing from The Lord, through the Corporate body of The Two Witnesses down to "the ONE gold bowl" which represents BOTH anointings of Jesus…Jesus Fully God & Jesus Fully Man COMING TOGETHER AS ONE in The Harvest to ONE GOLD BOWL, working together to minister and POUR OUT that Oil of Anointing INTO the Menorah, which is representing the rest of the Multitude bride that is being readied and prepared for Jesus 2nd Coming!! WOW!! I mean WOW!! GLORY TO GOD!!
The next day, we sent a note to Susan to see if she could look to the Lord and get some confirmation on that. And again, she came back with a “YES” confirmation from Jesus!!! HALLELUJAH!! GLORY TO GOD!! Allyson and I were so excited! It never ceases to amaze me how Jesus reveals such amazing deep revelations from his written word to His children!! AMEN!!
So as you can see, He knows that we just a breath away from being able to see how amazing this is all going to look in the harvest! Words cannot express how absolutely thrilled and excited we are to get started on this, not only once in a lifetime, but once in HISTORY opportunity to be used by God in these MIRACULOUS last moments in this world as we know it!! COME ON JESUS!!!
