the two witnesses

2olivetreesI had a vision that I was standing on top of a mountain and had a view from a distance of another rocky mountain. I watched and observed the following: I saw 2 black headed people standing in front of a menorah and they were praying in front of it. They had long black dreaded but beautiful hair. I know one of them was a woman but could not see the face of the other one. I just remember the long black beautiful hair. Next to the menorah was the cross and Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross next to it. Then next to the cross was the star of David. And the Lord said to me “draw this picture.” As soon as I got to work that morning, I drew the picture on a sticky note. That evening I went to visit with my friend, Ashley, who has been called out like I have been in these last days. I told her about the vision and gave her the sticky to keep. Her focus has been solely on the Jewish community and evangelizing to the lost as well as making visits to the messianic temple as we are searching for answers together. Our hearts have been with God’s people all of our lives and the Lord has really pressed our hearts to do more research and investigating on the missing links. There is much to be said about Zion…. With that being said, because the Lord knows that I am such a visual person, he gives me visions and dreams where I then write them down as they are only pieces of what he wants me to research. There are several messages that the Holy Spirit has me to reveal to everyone about this vision. There are also 3 words that the Lord has given to me in the past year of enlightenment that I want to include in this entry. Those words are: Martyrdom, The Olive Tree/Oil, The Rising.

First I want to start out by writing that I did not understand why I felt pain, hurt and compassion for the jewish people. I never understood, even as a child, I always asked my dad why people hated them so much. I never could wrap my head around this.  But now I completely understand why. They were martyred, persecuted and basically slaughtered by the hands of many throughout history. There are so many missing links and pieces that I won’t get into now because I want to make sure that the Holy Spirit gives me a complete understanding of those pieces of the puzzles. The message that I need to bring forward is concerning the two witnesses that are mentioned in Revelation 11. I am going to break it up piece by piece so that the vision will tie in with the verses.

Revelation 3-6 says And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.”They are “the two olive trees” and the two lampstands, and “they stand before the Lord of the earth.”If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die.They have power to shut up the heavens so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.

I have heard people say that the two witnesses were 2 people but the Holy Spirit revealed to me that these two witnesses are actually two groups of people: The Jewish and the Christians. All of us are witnesses and all of us are prophets and disciples of Jesus Christ. In Romans 11: 17 it says that Christians (Gentiles) are grafted in with the Jewish in the olive tree. (But some of these branches from Abraham’s tree–some of the people of Israel–have been broken off. And you Gentiles, who were branches from a wild olive tree, have been grafted in. So now you also receive the blessing God has promised Abraham and his children, sharing in the rich nourishment from the root of God’s special olive tree.) The Christians have the anointing of the olive oil of the olive tree along with the Jewish. And so we will be united all together in the Kingdom of Heaven. The people of Zion that are missing are also grafted into this olive tree, they are the branches that were broken off and are missing.

The Jewish and the Christian will suffer persecution on the same territory that Jesus was crucified on in Jerusalem. We see that in the following verse: Revelation 7-8 says Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss (satan and all of his evil dominions) will attack them, and overpower and kill them. Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city—which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where also their Lord was crucified.

It is my belief that the Jewish and Christians will face persecution in Israel. As we now know, there are people in Israel that are from all over, that are not Christians nor are they Jewish but have taken over the land and this is what they will do after they are persecuted: Revelation 9-10 says that For three and a half days some from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.

We all know that the Jewish and Christian people are the most hated people in all the earth. Jesus even told us that we would be hated for following him and that we were going to suffer for him. (Luke 21:17). Jewish and Christians have been hated all throughout history. But we all have to remember that this is not our home and so that our uncomfortable lives here are to keep us “shaken” up for his sake. As witnesses and prophets of Christ, we are all walking on a ledge for him and when the Holy Spirit fills your hearts, minds and souls…there is no way that we would even desire to live in this broken world.

Just like Christ was resurrected from death, all of the witnesses and prophets that are martyred will rise! In Revelation 11-12 it says…But after the three and a half days the breath[of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them.Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.

Finally, I would like to point out the star of David in my vision. It is my belief that the star of David in my vision represents the division between the two on earth (Christians and Jews) will become one in heaven. Because we have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, we are grafted into the olive tree and we are the elect of his Kingdom.

All the people who have hated us so much will see that the prophecies will be fulfilled! There is a rising in the church now as I am writing this. There are many of us that have had a HUGE spiritual awakening just in this year alone. I have mentioned this many times but I was living in my own bubble and never lived outside of my comfort zone. The Holy Spirit grabbed me in the past few years and has “shaken” me to the core. We are living in the last days. It is true that we do not know the day, the hour that Jesus will come back but I do believe that he prepares all the hearts of his people. In order for all of the prophecies to come to fruition, the Holy Spirit comes to all of us in a sense of “revival” period that we have never seen before. This is so true for today! Why are our fellow Christians “waking up” now all of a sudden? Why are we all looking at Israel with anticipation? Why are we experiencing the birth pains of the earth? Why are we dreaming and having visions? And there are so many more signs that I could write a book about it! But the scripture that the Lord carries me to and comforts my soul every day is found in Acts 2:16-20.

In the last days, God says,

I will pour out my Spirit on all people.

Your sons and daughters will prophesy,

your young men will see visions,

your old men will dream dreams.

Even on my servants, both men and women,

I will pour out my Spirit in those days,

and they will prophesy.

I will show wonders in the heaven above

and signs on the earth below,

blood and fire and billows of smoke.

The sun will be turned to darkness

and the moon to blood

before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.

And everyone who calls

on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

I have texted this passage so many times to many of you this year. It gives me comfort knowing that I am not alone and that he is pouring his spirit out to everyone! And to go through all of this together in unity with other believers is both exciting and supernaturally amazing beyond measure! I can’t even begin to explain some of the things that are happening around me and all of my sisters at this time. To my friend Ashley, it is raining, it is pouring and we are drenched!!!!

God Bless everyone who is reading this. My prayer is that you will be prepared and ready to receive the Holy Spirit! Enjoy the beautiful meteor shower that will be here in a few hours!

  1. God bless you! God showed me the identity of the “two witnesses” many years ago. It is amazes me that more people cant see that we are God’s witnesses. There are some many verses to support this. Rev 11 clearly is talking about 2 groups of people. TWO olive trees and TWO lamp stands. The beast will make war with them. You don’t make war with 2 individuals. And most importantly they witness on the streets of the “great city”. Not the “holy city” Jerusalem. The “great city” is Babylon! And Babylon is worldwide. Joel says in the last days God will pour out His Spirit on ALL people. You know the verse. The internet and all of today’s technology is taking us to a very scary place where God’s people, Jew and gentile, will have to flee from Babylon. But we will do it “not by might, nor by power, but by my (His) Spirit, says the Lord. Interestingly that verse in Zechariah is about the 2 olive trees and the lamp stand – the 2 witnesses!! Please get in touch with me!!

    1. And GOD Bless YOU! I am glad that you made those connections for me, in the past few days the Lord has mentioned the “two witnesses” blog to me several times and know that he sent you to me to make those connections so thank you so much for your obedience! I also feel the same way about the internet and this is why the LORD is hvaing me blog everything he has been showing me! I wanted to also mention to you that I looked at your messianic tees in your store and I love them! AWESOME! GOD is so AWESOME!

  2. Selena, Thanks for getting back to me. I really am so passionate about this. If we are nearing the “end times” and if we are part of God’s end time plan then we should begin to see more of His Spirit being poured out. I really need to read more of your blog. It seems you have been receiving a lot from Him lately. I have been pressing into my prayer time recently and have received several dreams. In one, another person and I watched as we saw 4 horses and death pass by. Quite terrifying! When it was over I looked to my friend and said, “Did you see that??” He said, “See what? I didn’t see anything!” My interpretation is even when people see the signs they will live in denial. Or create a fantastical non-Biblical scenario like the pre-trib rapture where all the believers are whisked away. God has huge plans for us. Here is a link to an amazing website about the true two witnesses. http://endtimepilgrim.org/twowit.htm
    I am glad you like our messianic shirts. Do you know of any prophecy conferences or gatherings where we might be able to sell them? I want to press into what God is doing. Too many Christian rock concerts. Not my thing. Anyway are you here in CA or on the west coast??

  3. David, we are definitely in the end times! The year of 2012 was a huge spiritual outpouring in my life. Back in 09, the LORD asked me to simplify my life and so I began to downsize within my home and extracted myself from everything of the world. I threw out dvds, books, anything in my house that was a distraction. I even cut my cable off and started to concentrate on teaching the word to children. Little did I know that he was preparing me for what is to come…since then, both of my children have been saved and baptized. The LORD literally had me consecrated to him and set me apart from the world and believe me when I say there was alot of falling and him picking me up again but I made it through not by his power but by his spirit, thank GOD! But I never fully understood what exactly he was doing in my life…until this week during passover. He revealed to me the Nazarite Calling he has had on my life….preparing me, molding me, consecrating me, setting me apart, filtering all the negative, going through various “boot camps”, changing me inside and out…and so much more. I am ready for what is to come and keeping my eyes on Israel. I actually live in SC and I am planning to open up a vintage shop here. I am interested in your shirts to sell here once I get the store up and running! This has been a life long dream to open a store…it will be a leap of faith but feel like the LORD has placed this desire in my heart as I feel that it will give me freedom to do more work for him! I have been reading your blog and everything that you have written has been confirmation of what the LORD has shown me. I am so thankful that you have brought me some missing pieces as well!! SO thank you!

  4. Selena,
    The blog you read is not mine. I wish I were so gifted. But I do recognize God’s hand when I see it. Here’s another and perhaps even deeper understanding of “the two witnesses”.
    http://www.herealittletherealittle.net/index.cfm?page_name=2-Witnesses-in-Revelation

    I am excited for you. God’s anointing is certainly evident in your life. I wonder sometimes about my own but I still press in. I am going thru a great change (I won’t call it a transition) right now. A nine year relationship has ended and I feel free to pursue all the things He has placed on my heart. I hope they are His will. He says he will give us the desires of our heart. Sometimes I confuse the two. Hopefully they are much the same. He knows my heart.

    Let me know when your vintage store is getting ready to open and I’ll send you a “trial package”.
