Part 2 – The Two Olive Branches & The Two Lampstands

What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves ?

14 Then said he: “These are the two anointed ones , that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.

(Zech 4:12 & 14 KJV)

The Angel of the LORD and Trumpet of 7 Days to first blood Moon

On the 8 April 2014 as I was walking outside with my two children, because both of them became sick and were at home. I only wanted to get out of the house just to get some fresh air and if possible just spend time and relax in the love and Presence of God.

While I walked outside, many different signs started to appear to me in the afternoon, while I just enjoyed the loving Presence of the Father and our Lord Yahshua the Messiah. Some of the signs although I recognised them I do not know what they mean yet, while others I immediately partially received understanding of the symbol or sign that appeared to me from the LORD God, although I only later understood their meaning more clearly.

The first was a sign of what looked like a large Cherub, with its wing spread out to the front. Underneath the Cherub was a small snake, having a mouth looking like a duck.

Two cherubs or Cherubim were mounted on top of the mercy seat, looking over the ark of the covenant, just as God commanded Moses, saying: 8 Let them make Me a sanctuary , that I may dwell among them . [ Heb. 8:1, 2; 10:1. ] 9 And you shall make it according to all that I show you , the pattern of the tabernacle or dwelling and the pattern of all the furniture of it . 10 They shall make an ark [ ark of the covenant ] of acacia wood: two and a half cubits long [ 2.5cbt = 1.143m ], a cubit and a half wide [ 1.5cbt = 0.6858m ], and a cubit and a half high [ 1.5cbt = 0.6858m ]. 11 You shall overlay the ark with pure gold , inside and out, and make a gold crown , a rim or border, around its top . 12 You shall cast four gold rings and attach them to the four lower corners of it , two rings on either side. 13 You shall make poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold , 14 And put the poles through the rings on the ark's sides, by which to carry it. 15 The poles shall remain in the rings of the ark ; they shall not be removed from it [ that the ark be not touched ]. 16 And you shall put inside the ark the Testimony [ the Ten Commandments ][ God's good character ] which I will give you. 17 And you shall make a mercy seat ( a covering ) of pure gold , two cubits and a half long and a cubit and a half wide . 18 And you shall make two cherubim ( winged angelic figures ) of [ solid ] hammered gold on the two ends of the mercy seat . 19 Make one cherub on each end , making the cherubim of one piece with the mercy seat , on the two ends of it. 20 And the cherubim shall spread out their wings above , covering the mercy seat with their wings , facing each other and looking down toward the mercy seat . 21 You shall put the mercy seat on the top of the ark , and in the ark you shall put the Testimony [ the Ten Commandments ] that I will give you. 22 There I will meet with you and, from above the mercy seat , from between the two cherubim that are upon the ark of the Testimony , I will speak intimately with you of all which I will give you in commandment to the Israelites. (Ex 25:8-22 Ampl)

The next signed which I saw I did not recognise, but took a photo of the sign. Later, when I looked at the photo I recognised it as something looking like the Ark of the Covenant, but it looked very different from the artist representations of the Ark of the Covenant. When I saw this sign I saw that it had two legs and that the ark looked like it was made of hammered gold, for the shape of the gold was not perfectly symmetric. The two Cherubs on top also looked different from what is normally presented. I saw what looked like four wings, two standing upright into the heavens and two covering the back side of the mercy seat, just as Moses was commanded to fashion: 7 And he made two cherubim of beaten gold ; on the two ends of the mercy seat he made them, 8 One cherub at one end and one at the other end; of one piece with the mercy seat he made the cherubim at its two ends. 9 And the cherubim spread out their wings on high , covering the mercy seat with their wings , with their faces to each other , looking down to the mercy seat. [ Heb. 9:23-26. ] (Ex 37:7-9 Ampl)

When I carefully looked at the sign, which YAH our Saviour has granted me, you will I realized that the box or the ark, in which the 10 commandments were, is not present. YHWH commanded Moses saying: 19 Make one cherub on each end , making the cherubim of one piece with the mercy seat , on the two ends of it.” (Ex 25:19 Ampl) When I studied the word of YHWH to the prophet Moses and I compared it to the sign, which appeared to me, I realized that the sign showed or revealed that the mercy seat and the two cherubim were made out of one solid hammered piece of gold . This is very significant. YHWH wanted the Ark of the Covenant to be made perfectly after the pattern, which Moses saw in heaven. When we understand the pattern we will understand the greatness of the symbolism of the furniture in the tabernacle or temple of the God who loves us.

On 26 April 2014 , instigated by the signs, which Yahshua had granted me, God in His great love, by the Holy Spirit, led me to another important principle of His love, which He wants us to understand. While I searched for two olive branches or olive trees, representing the two olive trees, which was shown the prophet Zechariah, as was prophesied: 3 And there are two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl and the other upon the left side of it [ feeding it continuously with oil ]. [ Rev. 11:4-13. ] 4 So I asked the angel who talked with me, What are these, my lord ? 5 Then the angel who talked with me answered me, Do you not know what these are? And I said, No, my lord. (Zech 4:3-5 Ampl) Zechariah asking the angel the meaning of these two trees and the two branches next to it, as was written: 11 “...What are these two olive trees on the right side of the lampstand and on the left side of it?” 12 And a second time I said to him: “What are these two olive branches which are beside the two golden tubes or spouts by which the golden oil is emptied out ? 13 And he answered me: “Do you not know what these are?” And I said: “No, my lord.” (Zech 4:11-13 Ampl) And the angel revealing to the prophet what these things mean and what they represents, saying: These are the two sons of oil [ the two anointed ones ] who stand before the Lord of the whole earth [ as His anointed instruments ]. [ Rev. 11:4. ] (Zech 4:14 Ampl) The Holy Spirit led me to make a very interesting discovery.

Who are the Two Witnesses?

I do not want here to go into all the possible interpretations of who the two witnesses are, but rather want to focus on a very specific interpretation of the meaning of who or what is the two witnesses? I found a person who explains how the answer can be found in the Ark of the Covenant. It was then that I made the most awesome discovery, instigated by the Holy Spirit, through a sign in the sky.

Twice the angel was amazed that the prophet Zechariah could not recognise the meaning of the symbols, saying to him: “Do you not know what these are?” In this statement the angel assumed that the prophet would know who or what the two olive trees and the two olive branches are. Since these two olive branches, springing from these two olive trees, supplies the golden bowl, is on top of the Menorah, the spiritual meaning of the two branches are far greater than that of two anointed persons only – Moses and Elijah. I am not saying it does not refer to two anointed prophets, for this is what was revealed through the apostle of love – John, but that in it is a far greater interpretation, which would reveal how these two prophets will be able to fulfil their ministry, and not only they, but all who want their lamps to be filled with oil on the day that Yahshua is revealed from heaven.

The Holy Spirit led me find a person that said the two anointed ones are the two cherubim on top of the Ark of the Covenant. His assumption was that the two witnesses will not be two persons, or even Elijah and Moses, but rather are represented by the two Cherubs who are on top of the Ark of the Covenant, the Archangels – Michael and Gabriel. This is not correct! But the Lord wanted me to realize that a secret was hidden in the pattern of the solid piece of hammered gold consisting out of the mercy seat and the two cherubim on top. Thus the two cherubim was part of the pattern of the mercy and grace of God.

Yahshua was once asked: “36 Teacher, which kind of commandment is great and important ( the principal kind) in the Law? [ Some commandments are light--which are heavy? ] Then Yahshua answered Him without delay or wavering: “And He replied to him: “ You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind (intellect) . [ Deut. 6:5. ] 38 This is the great (most important, principal) and first commandment . 39 And a second is like it : You shall love your neighbor as [ you do ] yourself . [ Lev. 19:18. ] (Matt 22:37-39 Ampl)

Then Yahshua concluded and said: 40 On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets . (Matt 22:40 MJKV)

Or in another translation: 40 These two commandments sum up and upon them depend all the Law and the Prophets . (Matt 22:37-40 Ampl)

Yahshua is revealing what is the heart or the Spirit of the Law, behind the law which was given, just as He had done many times eg.: 21 You have heard that it was said to the men of old [ Law ]: You shall not kill , and whoever kills shall be liable to and unable to escape the punishment imposed by the court. [ Exod. 20:13; Deut. 5:17; 16:18. ] (Matt 5:21 Ampl) Then Yahshua qualified the meaning or the real intent of the law, saying: 22 But I say to you that everyone who continues to be angry with his brother or harbors malice (enmity of heart) against him shall be liable to and unable to escape the punishment imposed by the court; and whoever speaks contemptuously and insultingly to his brother shall be liable to and unable to escape the punishment imposed by the Sanhedrin...”(Matt 5:22 Ampl)

Therefore Yahshua answered the man who asked him what is the principle kind of law or the greater law, saying: “ On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets Let's look at the Ark of the Covenant again then these things will become clear.

God who knows the pattern and the heart and mind of the Spirit, told Moses, saying: “ 16 And you shall put inside the ark the Testimony [ the Ten Commandments ][ The LAW ] which I will give you.” Thus on the inside of the box or the Ark of the Covenant, must be the 10 commandment of God. Then according to specific requirements, the Holy Spirit said: “ 12 You shall cast four gold rings and attach them to the four lower corners of it , two rings on either side. 13 You shall make poles of acacia wood and overlay them with gold , 14 And put the poles through the rings on the ark's sides, by which to carry it. 15 The poles shall remain in the rings of the ark ; they shall not be removed from it [ that the ark be not touched ]. Thus the Law or the Law and the Prophets, would hang on two golden poles or principles – Love the Lord your God and Love your neighbour as yourself . Halleluyah! Both these principles are still based on the works of man in their effort to attain to righteousness before God. The entire Old Testament or the Law and the prophets pointed to Yahshua and had the law as their school master.

But when Christ came, He came to fulfil the law and the prophets. He is the spiritual and literal fulfilment of the Law and the prophesies of the prophets about Him. He perfectly kept the law and thus fulfilled the requirements of the law for a man to be saved by the law. He was the only One who crushed the head of the serpent and overcame through His obedience to the law of the Father, being perfect in righteousness through the law, living in the truth constantly. Therefore, John wrote about Him: 14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; and we [ actually ] saw His glory (His honour, His majesty), such glory as an only begotten son receives from his father , full of grace (favor, loving-kindness) and full of truth . [ Isa. 40:5. ] ( John 1:14 Ampl ) Yahshua did not only come in truth, to fulfil the law, but also came in grace and the loving kindness, and with the favour of God. He came to reveal the greater part and other side of the glory of the character of the Father.

Therefore, the apostle John testified about the testimony of John the Baptist, who was sent to prepare the way before Him, saying: This was He of Whom I said: “He Who comes after me has priority over me, for He was before me. [ He takes rank above me, for He existed before I did. He has advanced before me, because He is my Chief. ] 16 For out of His fullness (abundance) we have all received [ all had a share and we were all supplied with ] one grace after another and spiritual blessing upon spiritual blessing and even favour upon favour and gift [ heaped ] upon gift . 17 For while the Law was given through Moses , grace (unearned, undeserved favor and spiritual blessing) and truth came through Jesus Christ . [ Exod. 20:1. ] (John 1:15-17 Ampl) The law came through Moses. Through the law the righteous and perfect and flawless character of God is revealed. But through Yahshua, both the flawless, truthfulness and the loving, gracious, kindnesses of God were revealed. So awesome is this side of the character of God, which has been overlooked, that John says: “... out of His fullness (abundance) we have all received ...” The Loving goodness and kindness of God is overflowing and in abundance in Him. That is who He is.

Therefore John says about the Father: 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son , or the only begotten God , Who is in the bosom [ in the intimate presence ] of the Father , He has declared Him [ He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen ; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known ]. [ Prov. 8:30. ] (John 1:18 Ampl) Yahshua came to make the fullness and the true character of God's character known. We often only see His lawful righteousness, but never see His Love, mercy and graciousness Spirit of compassion. Yahshua came to show the world the true character of God in perfect balance, both in grace and truth. John does not say: “...in truth and grace...,” but in grace and truth, showing the gracious, loving character of God takes pre-eminence or is the greater of the two all though they are just like the word of Yahshua, saying: “... the great (most important, principal) and first commandment . 39 And a second is like it...” Thus the most important principle of God is He is Love! And the second, which is like it, although equal is to the first and not less important are second in principle. God wants us to first see His Loving character and not first His lawful flawlessness and then fear Him, but rather wants us to revere Him with awesome love for Him, because of His Love for us.

Therefore, the apostle Paul, knowing that the First principle of the character of God is love, says about the two laws of God's perfect character: 1 Therefore, [ there is ] now no condemnation ( no adjudging guilty of wrong ) for those who are in Christ Jesus , who live [ and ] walk not after the dictates of the flesh, but after the dictates of the Spirit. [ John 3:18. ] 2 For the law of the Spirit of life [ which is ] in Christ Jesus [ the law of our new being ] has freed me from the law of sin and of death . 3 For God has done what the Law could not do , [ its power ] being weakened by the flesh [ the entire nature of man without the Holy Spirit [ true character of God ]]. Sending His own Son in the guise of sinful flesh and as an offering for sin , [ God ] condemned sin in the flesh [ subdued, overcame, deprived it of its power over all who accept that sacrifice ], [ Lev. 7:37. ] 4 So that the righteous and just requirement of the Law might be fully met in us who live and move not in the ways of the flesh [ fear of condemnation, because of the law ] but in the ways of the Spirit [ our lives governed not by the standards and according to the dictates of the flesh, but controlled by the Holy Spirit [ the greater Law of the Loving and gracious character of God ]]. (Rom 8:1-4 Ampl) God in His great mercy saw that through Adam all men were bound to disobedience and now only had a revelation of the lawful, flawless, perfect righteous character of God. Satan had deceived man in believing that God did not want them to be like Him, but did not tell them that God wanted to protect them from the impact the knowledge of good and evil would have upon them, knowing the lawful righteous character of God, for in He is light and in Him there is no darkness.

There was another tree in the garden of which Adam and Eve should have eaten and against this tree there was no law or restriction - the tree of Life! What men were blinded to see, because of their fear of God, Yahshua came to vividly express and show to mankind through His character of grace and love. Therefore Paul compares the “... the law of the Spirit of life ...” to the “... law of sin and of death ...,” revealing the two trees of righteousness in the Garden of Eden. Through the Spirit of Life, which was revealed to Paul, God the Father revealed that He overcame the stumbling block of man's weakness, caused by the offence, missing the mark, by sending His only Son. God wanted to reveal His gracious and loving character to man so that they would not be blinded by their fear of God anymore, being separated in spirit from Him, always feeling accused and condemned. God came to condemn that which condemned us, making a sacrifice, paying for what was lacking in the weakness of man, through the righteous lifestyle and the death and resurrection of Christ, showing how much God loves us and want us to be freed from a perverted perspective of the God the Father.

The apostle Paul, teaching the church of the Ephesians wrote to them saying: 22 But the fruit of the [ Holy ] Spirit [ the work which His presence within accomplishes ] is love, joy (gladness), peace, patience (an even temper, forbearance), kindness, goodness (benevolence), faithfulness, 23 Gentleness (meekness, humility), self-control (self-restraint, continence) . Against such things there is no law [ that can bring a charge ]. (Gal 5:22-23 Ampl) Paul explicitly points out that there is no law against the fruit of the Holy Spirit. If Adam ate of the tree of life He would have tasted the goodness of God and would not have feared God and would not have accepted the lie, which deceived Eve. But no having tasted the goodness of God he too was not only deceived, but chose to love the acceptance of Eve more than that of God. He chose to please man rather than God.

The truth is that the Character of the Spirit of God is abundance of Life, which consists out of the Fruit of the Spirit, against which God has no law. You might then ask, but why did God have a law against the knowledge of good and evil, for in God is good and in Him was no evil, but knew that good can be perverted and corrupted into evil, which would lead to destruction in the spirit. You might ask, but why did He even create evil, that is to say He had the capacity to create evil and therefore must be evil and a liar. God did not create evil, but knew when men have their minds set on the knowledge of doing good, they also have the potential to do evil and that which is an abomination in the sight of God. God, in His wisdom knew that when He created light or good, darkness was also possible, therefore Moses wrote: 3 And God said: “ Let there be light [ Light BE! ] ; and there was light . 4 And God saw that the light was good ( suitable, pleasant ) and He approved it ; and God separated the light from the darkness. [ II Cor. 4:6. ] (Gen 1:3-4 Ampl) In approving the light and saying that it is good, God declared that He chooses ‘good' and is indeed good. But when He created light, He of necessity realized that He had also created the potential for darkness and therefore separated the darkness to the other end of eternity. Thus, light was created, but darkness was a possible by product, because of how light was defined, according to the law of life. Is God, the Creator of life, therefore evil, because He wanted to keep us away from ever tasting evil and now warns us against the potential of its destructive nature? Therefore Paul calls it a law. Law in nature obey certain rules and can be used in certain boundaries and within certain limits. So too the law of Life is only possible when we live in the Loving and gracious character of God and what God had created and also consists out of. Therefore there were two trees in the Garden of Eden, as was written: 9 And out of the ground the Lord God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight or to be desired - good (suitable, pleasant) for food ; the tree of life also in the centre of the garden , and the tree of the knowledge of [ the difference between ] good and evil and blessing and calamity . [ Rev. 2:7; 22:14, 19. ](Gen 1:9 Ampl) Here we again se the same principle of the greater command and the second that is like it. Here the tree of Life is explicitly mentioned as being in the middle of the garden and taking pre-eminence, but then the tree of knowledge is also mentioned as a second to it. Thus the second tree is only mentioned as a by produce and not as the main principle in the garden, although according to some translation it becomes evident that both these trees stand in the middle of the garden, as was translated: “ 9 And out of the earth the Lord made every tree to come, delighting the eye and good for food; and in the middle of the garden , the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil .” (Gen 2:9 BBE) When the Holy Spirit led me to find this awesome truth I was suddenly reminded of the sign that appeared to me on the same day of two large branches, like two trees coming out of one tree.

Thus, through all these signs God had in His love and in His wisdom wanted to reveal to the world His true nature and Love, thus restoring the true perspective we have of our Heavenly Father. He also wanted to reveal to us who the two witnesses who stand before the Lord of all the earth are and what the sign that appeared to the prophet Zechariah truly spiritually resembled. In its spiritual context the two branches, both coming out of the same tree are the two witnesses of God's true character: Grace and Truth.

The fact that the mercy seat and the two cherubs or two witnesses are made of one solid hammered piece of gold points to the fact that this is a complete unit, which includes the mercifull and gracious character of God, as He revealed to Moses, saying: “Lord passed by before him, and proclaimed: “The Lord! The Lord! A God merciful and gracious , slow to anger , and abundant in loving-kindness and truth , keeping mercy and loving-kindness for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin , but Who will by no means clear the guilty , visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children's children, to the third and fourth generation. (Ex 34:6 Ampl) In another translation: 6 “...The Lord, the Lord, a God full of pity and grace , slow to wrath and great in mercy and faith ; 7 Having mercy on thousands , overlooking evil and wrongdoing and sin ; (Ex 34:6-7 BBE) The word for ‘truth' used here is better understood as ‘faithfulness.' Therefore He is said to be full of mercy and faith or faithfulness. The Lord God is faithful to His promises and shows His character of integrity and love in promising to overlook evil and wrongdoing and sin or iniquity, transgression and sin committed against Him. Opposed to this, God also promises not to equate any person who is guilty, promising to visit their sins to the third and fourth generation of those who hate Him.

Thus, the gracious, mercifull character of God consists in all loving kindness and faithfulness. When God created He did not do work, but spoke as the apostle Paul explained: “... speaks of the nonexistent things that as if they [ already ] existed.” [ Gen. 17:5. ] (Rom 4:17 Ampl) The only way to access the Loving and gracious character of God is by faith, like Abraham did, believing God and it was credited to him for righteousness and justification in the sigh of a loving and gracious God, who overlooked the wrongs of Abraham, who saw the loving character of God. Thus God had determined that those who, like Himself, would be willing to believe would inherit the loving and generous promises, which is available and accessible for those who believe. Only those who live by faith is pleasing in the sight of God, just is written: “6 But without faith it is impossible to please and be satisfactory to Him . For whoever would come near to God must [ necessarily ] believe that God exists and that He is the rewarder of those who earnestly and diligently seek Him [ out ]. ( Heb 11:6 Ampl) The entire scriptures is written especially because of those who believed and trusted in the faithfulness of God, pleased God who miraculously carried them on eagle's wings.

The apostle Paul revealed a mystery, which many have not understood and had put into the right perspective. Paul spoke to the church in Corinth and said to them: 1 If I [ can ] speak in the tongues of men and [ even ] of angels , but have not love (that reasoning, intentional, spiritual devotion such as is inspired by God's love for and in us ), I am only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal . ( 1Cor 13:1 Ampl) The apostle had just finished explaining the gifts of the Holy Spirit, saying: 1 Now about the spiritual gifts (the special endowments of supernatural energy ), brethren, I do not want you to be misinformed . ( 1Cor 12:1 Ampl) Many have assumed that Paul was rebuking the church for the wrong use of the gifts of the Spirit, and have even rejected the existence or need for the gifts of the Holy Spirit, while after Paul had explained these things he was only saying: 31 But earnestly desire and zealously cultivate the greatest and best gifts and graces ( the higher gifts and the choicest graces ). And yet I will show you a still more excellent way [ one that is better by far and the highest of them all - love ]. (1Cor 12:31 Ampl) After Paul had corrected and explained the right perspective of how the gifts must be operated through love, he again returns to explain the working of the gifts of the Holy Spirit, saying: 1 Eagerly pursue and seek to acquire [ this ] love [ make it your aim, your great quest ]; and earnestly desire and cultivate the spiritual endowments (gifts) ,...” ( 1Cor 14:1 Ampl) Paul now concludes commanding the Corinthians to pursue both love and the greater gift of the Holy Spirit, not just the one without the other.

Thus the Glory of God, by the Holy Spirit, is revealed through both the character of His love and ability His power. Through His love He shows all who believe His grace, making them righteous in His sight and giving them the ability and authority to operate and demonstrate His power over the work of the enemy.

When the High Priest enters the Most Holy Place, he wears a blue garment, which has both pomegranates and gold bells around the edge of the garment. When the high priest enters the Most Holy place these bells are not allowed to make a sound, as a sign that the priest does not do any work, when entering the Most Holy place. Therefore, if the pomegranates were not between the gold bells, they would ring and thus become clanging symbols, making noise in the Most Holy place. The pomegranates are a symbol of the many faceted characteristics of love, therefore Paul wrote: 4 Love endures long and is patient and kind ; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy , is not boastful or vainglorious , does not display itself haughtily . 5 It is not conceited ( arrogant and inflated with pride ); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly . Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking ; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful ; it takes no account of the evil done to it [ it pays no attention to a suffered wrong ]. 6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness , but rejoices when right and truth prevail . 7 Love bears up under anything and everything that comes , is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances , and it endures everything [ without weakening ]. 8 Love never fails [ never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end ]. (1Cor 13:4-8 Ampl) While the gold bells, is a symbol of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. If the gifts are operated outside of the love of God, they become only a clanging cymbal and a noisy gong.

Therefore, the fruit if the Holy Spirit is produced through love, but the power of the gifts is produced through faith and hope, therefore the apostle Paul said to the church in Galatia: 5 For we, [ not relying on the Law [ gold box ] but ] through the [ Holy ] Spirit's [ Two gold cherubim = Fruit and Gifts of the Holy Spirit ][ help ], by faith anticipate and wait for the blessing and good for which our righteousness and right standing with God [ our conformity to His will in purpose, thought, and action, causes us ] to hope . 6 For [ if we are ] in Christ [ mercy seat ] Jesus, neither circumcision nor uncircumcision counts for anything, but only faith activated and energized and expressed and working through love . (Gal 5:5-6 Ampl) Thus, the two Cherubs touching their wings, being part of the mercy seat, expresses the Love of God, which can only be accessed or are in the boundaries of Love and Faith.

Thus, the fullness of the Glory of God, represented by gold, is revealed in and through the law of perfect flawlessness, the Ark of the covenant, containing the 10 commandments and the through the Love of God, through His abundant grace and mercy, shown and revealed through and in the Anointed One – Yahshua, accessible through faith and love, the two golden cherubs, just as Paul concluded in His explanation of the working of the gift through Love, having become mature, saying: 10 But when the complete and perfect (total) comes , the incomplete and imperfect will vanish away (become antiquated, void, and superseded ). 11 When I was a child , I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; now that I have become a man , I am done with childish ways and have put them aside . 12 For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [ of reality as in a riddle or enigma ], but then [ when perfection comes ] we shall see in reality and face to face ! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly , even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood [ by God ]. 13 And so faith, hope, love abide [ faith -- conviction and belief respecting man's relation to God and divine things ; hope -- joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation ; love -- true affection for God and man , growing out of God's love for and in us ], these three; but the greatest of these is love . (1Cor 13:10-13 Ampl)

In conclusion, the pattern of what Moses had seen in heaven was represented by the Ark of the Covenant, consisting out of the Ark and the mercy seat. But to indicate that mercy triumphs over judgement and that the loving and good character of God is greater than the perfection of God, for those who by faith accept God's Love for them, YHWH said to Moses: 21 You shall put the mercy seat on the top of the ark , and in the ark you shall put the Testimony [ the Ten Commandments ] that I will give you. (Ex 34:21 Ampl)

The Pavilion of the LORD – The Treasury of His Glory

The sign which appeared next to the Cherub looked like a large pavilion. I was immediately reminded of two things: The riches of the glory of God and the Pavilion of the LORD.

The Pavilion of the LORD

David, before he became king, when King Saul persecuted him, he wrote how God, in His great love for Him came to save him: 6 In my distress [ when seemingly closed in ] I called upon the Lord and cried to my God ; He heard my voice out of His temple ( heavenly dwelling place ), and my cry came before Him, into His [ very ] ears . 7 Then the earth quaked and rocked , the foundations also of the mountains trembled ; they moved and were shaken because He was indignant and angry . 8 There went up smoke from His nostrils ; and lightning out of His mouth devoured; coals were kindled by it. 9 He bowed the heavens also and came down ; and thick darkness was under His feet . 10 And He rode upon a cherub [ a storm ] and flew [ swiftly ]; yes, He sped on with the wings of the wind. 11 He made darkness His secret hiding place ; as His pavilion (His canopy) round about Him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies . 12 Out of the brightness before Him there broke forth through His thick clouds hailstones and coals of fire . 13 The Lord also thundered from the heavens , and the Most High uttered His voice , amid hailstones and coals of fire . (Ps 18:6-13 Ampl) David meditated on who is God and wrote He lived in darkness, which is filled with brightness, which shot forth like lightning. David also compared the place where God abides, His temple, His secret hiding place to a large pavilion.

A pavilion is a place, which were built in such a way that all around who are seated in the pavilion can be able to see what is happening in the middle. A great host of people are able to be seated in large stadiums or pavilions. Who is the LORD of Hosts and who are the large host who surrounds God?

Through the prophet Isaiah God brought forth a case and a taunting defence, saying: 6 Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer , the Lord of hosts : I am the First and I am the Last ; besides Me there is no God . [ Rev. 1:17; 2:8; 22:13. ] 7 Who is like Me? Let him [ stand and ] proclaim it, declare it, and set [ his proofs ] in order before Me, since I made and established the people of antiquity. [ Who has announced from of old ] the things that are coming ? Then let them declare yet future things . ( Isa 44:6-7 Ampl ) Here He, who is called the LORD of hosts, adamantly says that only He is God that only He is the King of Israel and only He is the First and the Last. Who is the First and the Last? Is it not Yahshua? YAH our Redeemer, the Saviour and Messiah of the world for those who believe? When the apostle John saw Him He wrote what He saw and heard, saying: 10 I was in the Spirit [ rapt in His power ] on the Lord's Day, and I heard behind me a great voice like the calling of a war trumpet , 11 Saying, I am the Alpha and the Omega , the First and the Last . Write promptly what you see (your vision) in a book and send it to the seven churches which are in Asia--to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamum and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea. 12 Then I turned to see [ whose was ] the voice that was speaking to me , and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands , 13 And in the midst of the lampstands [ One ] like a Son of Man , clothed with a robe which reached to His feet and with a girdle of gold about His breast . [ Dan. 7:13; 10:5. ] 14 His head and His hair were white like white wool , [ as white ] as snow , and His eyes [ flashed ] like a flame of fire . [ Dan. 7:9. ] 15 His feet glowed like burnished (bright) bronze as it is refined in a furnace , and His voice was like the sound of many waters . [ Dan. 10:6. ] 16 In His right hand He held seven stars , and from His mouth there came forth a sharp two- edged sword , and His face was like the sun shining in full power at midday . [ Exod. 34:29. ] 17 When I saw Him, I fell at His feet as if dead. But He laid His right hand on me and said: Do not be afraid! I am the First and the Last , [ Isa. 44:6. ] 18 And the Ever-living One [ I am living in the eternity of the eternities ]. I died , but see, I am alive forevermore ; and I possess the keys of death and Hades (the realm of the dead). 19 Write therefore the things you see, what they are [ and signify ] and what is to take place hereafter. (Rev 1:10-19 Ampl)

Therefore, when Hezekiah prayed to God he said: 16 O Lord of hosts , God of Israel , Who [ in symbol ] are enthroned above the cherubim [ of the ark in the temple ], You are the God , You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth . You have made heaven and earth . ( Isa 37:16 Ampl) Here Yahshua is called the Lord of Hosts, the One who created heaven and earth, just as the apostle John revealed, saying: 1 In the beginning [ before all time ] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God , and the Word was God Himself . [ Isa. 9:6. ] 2 He was present originally with God. 3 All things were made and came into existence through Him ; and without Him was not even one thing made that has come into being . ( John 1:1-3 Ampl )

Even David says about His hosts who do His commands: “19 The Lord has established His throne in the heavens , and His kingdom rules over all . 20 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord , you His angels , you mighty ones who do His commandments , hearkening to the voice of His word . 21 Bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, all you His hosts , you His ministers who do His pleasure . 22 Bless the Lord, all His works in all places of His dominion ; bless (affectionately, gratefully praise) the Lord, O my soul! (Ps 103:19-22 Ampl) and against the Psalmist wrote: 2 Praise Him, all His angels , praise Him, all His hosts ! ( Ps 148:2 Ampl)

Who then is the LORD of Hosts? Therefore David wrote about Him, saying: 7 Lift up your heads, O you gates; and be lifted up, you age-abiding doors, that the King of glory may come in. 8 Who is the King of glory ? The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle . 9 Lift up your heads, O you gates; yes, lift them up, you age-abiding doors , that the King of glory may come in. 10 Who is [ He then ] this King of glory ? The LORD of hosts , He is the King of glory . Selah [ pause, and think of that ]! (Ps 24:7-10 Ampl) Thus the King of Glory is the LORD of Hosts! Who is the King of Glory? Yahshua is the King of Glory! Thus Yahshua is the LORD of Hosts. He is the Commander of the Armies of YHWH, the LORD! He is the Angel of the LORD, who appeared to Moses and to Joshua under the Old Covenant.

Yahshua Himself appeared to these men, whom He had chosen, revealing Himself and His character and Glory to them in various ways and forms, as was written: 1 In many separate revelations [ each of which set forth a portion of the Truth ] and in different ways God spoke of old to [ our ] forefathers in and by the prophets , 2 [ But ] in the last of these days He has spoken to us in [ the person of a ] Son , Whom He appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things , also by and through Whom He created the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time [ He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order ]. 3 He is the sole expression of the glory of God [ the Light-being , the out-raying or radiance of the divine ], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [ God's ] nature , upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His mighty word of power . When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt , He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high , 4 [ Taking a place and rank by which ] He Himself became as much superior to angels as the glorious Name (title) which He has inherited is different from and more excellent than theirs. ( Heb 1:1 -4 Ampl) Thus, Yahshua, YAH, the Great I AM, who appeared to Moses, is the One who become flesh and dwelt among men, and became their Saviour. His is the Right-hand of God. He is not another God in the trinity; He is the Very GOD, who was manifested in different ways at different times. He came and was manifested to the world in the person or in the role of a Son. Although, He Himself, through His powerful word created all things, and operated in the role of the Father of all creation and said: “Light BE!” And it was so! At the fullness of time, He came to His own in the role as ‘the son of man' and in the likeness of a son of man, being called the Son of God. This is why John says about Him when He saw Him: “... and in the midst of the lampstands [ One ] like a Son of Man ...” Even some of the prophets who looked into the future saw Him and said they One like the son of man, as Daniel saw Him, saying: “13 I saw in the night visions , and behold, on the clouds of the heavens came One like a Son of man , and He came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before Him . 14 And there was given Him [ the Messiah ] dominion and glory and kingdom that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve Him . His dominion is an everlasting dominion which shall not pass away, and His kingdom is one which shall not be destroyed. [ Rev. 5:1-10. ] (Dan 7:13-14 Ampl)

Daniel describes the Ancient of Days, saying that One like a Son of man is brought before Him, saying: 9 I kept looking until thrones were placed [ for the assessors with the Judge ], and the Ancient of Days [ God, the eternal Father ] took His seat , Whose garment was white as snow and the hair of His head like pure wool . His throne was like the fiery flame ; its wheels were burning fire .[ Cherubim chariot ] [ I Kings 22:19; Ps. 90:2; Ezek. 1:26-28; Dan. 7:13, 22; Matt. 19:28; Rev. 20:4. ] 10 A stream of fire came forth from before Him ; a thousand thousands ministered to Him and ten thousand times ten thousand rose up and stood before Him [ hosts of heaven ]; the Judge was seated [ the court was in session ] and the books were opened . ( Dan 7:9 -10 Ampl)

Truly these things are a great mystery, which the apostle Paul wrote about Yahshua when He ascended into heaven, saying: 9 [ But He ascended? ] Now what can this, He ascended , mean but that He had previously descended from [ the heights of ] heaven into [ the depths ] , the lower parts of the earth ? 10 He Who descended is the [ very ] same as He Who also has ascended high above all the heavens , that He [ His presence ] might fill all things ( the whole universe, from the lowest to the highest ). (Eph 4:9-10 Ampl) The writer of Hebrews explains that Yahshua is the very image of the out raying of the divine nature of God the Father. He is the living, walking Shekinah Glory expression of the Word of God and the Spirit of the Father, the Eternal and Holy Spirit. He says when He ascended: “... He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high ...” The Lord Yahshua was made and came into existence before all things, as was determined by God the Father, as was prophesied: 4 He Who sits in the heavens laughs; the Lord has them in derision [ and in supreme contempt He mocks them ]. 5 He speaks to them in His deep anger and troubles (terrifies and confounds) them in His displeasure and fury , saying: “6 Yet have I anointed (installed and placed) My King [ firmly ] on My holy hill of Zion. 7 I will declare the decree of the Lord: “He said to Me: “You are My Son; this day [ I declare ] I have begotten You .”” [ Heb. 1:5; 3:5, 6; II Pet. 1:17, 18. ] (Ps 2:4-6 Ampl) Just like a father gives birth to a son, so God the Father gave birth to a son, when time begun. Therefore it is written: “This day”, pointing to a certain day, when time begun. This is also the reason why the Word of God, through the prophets and the apostles prophesied and said: “He was crucified before the foundation of the world.” As was written about Him, in the Psalms, saying: GIVE EAR, O my people, to my teaching; incline your ears to the words of my mouth. 2 I will open my mouth in a parable (in instruction by numerous examples); I will utter dark sayings of old [ Foundation of the World = Ancient of days ][ that hide important truth ]--[ Matt. 13:34, 35. ] (Ps 78:1-2 Ampl) And as was revealed about His crucifixion, by the apostle John, saying: 8 “...everyone whose name has not been recorded in the Book of Life of the Lamb that was slain [ in sacrifice ] from the foundation of the world .” (Rev 13:8 Ampl) Just as books were opened, so the book of life and the books of the records of all things were opened and all mankind were judged, from the foundation of the world. Thus Yahshua went and took His seat as the King of kings and the LORD of Lords, the LORD of Hosts, sitting at the right-hand of the power and ability of God, no longer separated from God, but being again God Himself. Therefore Paul says He will fill the heavens with Himself.

In conclusion, a pavilion is also a place where things are set up in such away by its creator that the witnesses will be able to see and give witness of the glory of what is displayed, as was written: 1 Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [ who have borne testimony to the Truth ], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us , 2 Looking away [ from all that will distract ] to Jesus , Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [ giving the first incentive for our belief ] and is also its Finisher [ bringing it to maturity and perfection ]. He, for the joy [ of obtaining the prize ] that was set before Him , endured the cross , despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God. [ Ps. 110:1. ] ( Heb 12:1 -2 Ampl) Just like a stadium is full of onlookers cheering on the contestants, so we have a great cloud of witnesses, who looked to Yahshua the LORD of hosts and has run the race to get the price, endured to the end and has been taken up into glory.

We too are being encouraged to continue and complete our race with perseverance with the goal of becoming more and more like Yahshua and growing in our understanding of the greatnesses of the character of His love and the glory of His power, attaining to the power of that which operated in Him. Therefore the apostle Paul wrote to the church of the Ephesians that he wants them to have a deep revelation in their hearts of the love of their Heavenly Father, through Christ, for them, saying: 14 For this reason [ seeing the greatness of this plan by which you are built together in Christ ], I bow my knees before the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ , 15 For Whom every family in heaven and on earth is named [ that Father from Whom all fatherhood takes its title and derives its name ]. 16 May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man [ heart and soul ] by the [ Holy ] Spirit [ Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality ]. 17 May Christ through your faith [ actually ] dwell ( settle down, abide , make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love , 18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [ God's devoted people, the experience of that love ] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [ of it ]; 19 [ That you may really come ] to know [ practically, through experience for yourselves ] the love of Christ , which far surpasses mere knowledge [ without experience ]; that you may be filled [ through all your being ] unto all the fullness of God [ may have the richest measure of the divine Presence , and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself ]! ( Eph 3:14 -19 Ampl) Hidden in the rich treasury of His glory is a great cloud of witnesses and examples of the Love and the grace of God the Father that was manifested through Yahshua the Son. This treasury of glory is also a pavilion of wisdom and power that witness that reveals the glory of God, just as the fast expense of the universe and the stars is a witness of the divine, perfect and loving nature of the good God we serve.

The understanding of the Love of God for us is so powerful that Paul urges and step by step explains how important it is to be rooted in the love of God. He knows that in order “...not to lose heart [ not to faint or become despondent through fear ]...” they must be rooted in an experience of the Love of God. Paul is not saying that they should only know that God love them, but says they must be: “... rooted deep in love and founded securely on love ...”

What does that mean? It means that in every thought and action we must always be absolutely convinced of the Love of God, which was demonstrated through the cross. It is not only a spiritual concept, but is absolute imperative to know this characteristic of God, which we must become and must always be a part of our lifestyle. We cannot become love, like God, unless we know the Love of God and His character of love, which triumphs over sin and judgment.

When we, by faith and acceptance of the cross, accept that we are sinners and needed grace, we accept the Love of God. Many, unfortunately, forgot that they were saved and that it was the love and the kindness of God that saved us from that which we could not be saved from in our own effort. It was and still is purely the Love of God that constantly shows us grace and even helps us, by being the constant Intercessor and High Priest for our sins, which we still are overcoming daily. When we start to grasp that great and overflowing love, which is constant and daily granted us, in our weaknesses, we will have awesome joy and confidence to enter in before God, undisturbed and without fear, but in awe and then through His love for us, will: “... be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power ...” We will start to realize, how Yahshua, by faith, through the understanding of the love of His Father, overcame and pleased the Father constantly and operated in the power He did. Then we will: ”... be filled [ through all your being ] unto all the fullness of God [ may have the richest measure of the divine Presence , and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself ]! ...” And then we will be able to accomplish the goal that God has for us as His sons of God.

Two Olive Branches

The next sign, which appeared to me, looked like two large thick branches. This immediately reminded me of the two witnesses. As I wondered whether this was what the Lord wanted to show me? I looked towards the right-hand and saw a number ‘2' to confirm this sign did indeed refer to the two anointed ones, as was prophesied: 3 And I will grant the power of prophecy to My two witnesses for 1,260 days (42 months; three and one-half years) , dressed in sackcloth. 4 These [ witnesses ] are the two olive trees and the two lampstands, which stand before the Lord of the earth . [ Zech. 4:3, 11-14. ] (Rev 11:3-4 Ampl) Here John explicitly says that the two witnesses are the two olive trees and that they are two lampstands. When I searched for a picture representation of two olive trees I found a very awesome photo, which perfectly represented the sign in the sky, which the Great I AM has granted me: I found a sign olive tree, which has two large and thick branches. This specific tree stands for thousands of years and still stands in the garden of Gethsemane to this day.

The Garden of Gethsemane derived it name from its meaning: “The olive press.” God made an awesome sign and directly referred us to the garden of Gethsemane and the great love He has for us, to lay down His life for us. In the garden of the oil press, the Lord was tested to the utmost and was perfected through suffering for us, being tempted in every way as we are, overcoming the test of dying to Himself and obeying the Father in heaven, who loved him, and in whose love He remained, as was written: 7 In the days of His flesh [ Jesus ] offered up definite, special petitions [ for that which He not only wanted but needed ] and supplications with strong crying and tears to Him Who was [ always ] able to save Him [ out ] from death , and He was heard because of His reverence toward God [ His godly fear, His piety, in that He shrank from the horrors of separation from the bright presence of the Father ]. 8 Although He was a Son, He learned [ active, special ] obedience through what He suffered 9 And, [ His completed experience ] making Him perfectly [ equipped ], He became the Author and Source of eternal salvation to all those who give heed and obey Him ,...” [ Isa. 45:17. ] (Heb 5:7-9 Ampl) Through His suffering for us, He was crushed and the oil of joy came forth though His sacrifice. He became the source of ceaseless eternal supply of the Love of the Father and the power and creative ability released by faith through the resurrection form the dead, by the Spirit who raised Him from the dead. Now He became a life giving Spirit to give life to all who accept that sacrifice and willingly also lay down their lives, crucifying their sinful nature through the Spirit who rose them from the dead. Through His suffering and the crucifixion, He made a way where there was no way, becoming sin so that we could make us righteous and perfect.

When I saw this sign it also reminded me of the Word of Yahshua to two witnesses, making a clear sign to us on 9 March 2002 , consisting of two branches, one longer than the other. Later through the gift of signs and wonders the Lord God of heaven and earth showed us the sequence of the events that will take place in the last 7 years and the time of the revealing of the two witnesses. Through this sign He explained the intriguetly woven prophetic meaning of the words of Yahshua: “I AM the Vine and you are the branches!” He explained how Israel gored by a boar out of the woods and was broken up into 2 and 10 tribes and how later the 2 tribes, the Jews, the natural olive branch, rejected Yahshua and how the gentiles, the wild olive branch, by faith accepted Yahshua. How even those who have accepted Yahshua would again be divided into 5 wise virgins and 5 foolish virgins, again forming two branches and how out of the bride, the 5 wise virgins, two witnesses will come forth, also being two branches, revealing how they would be taken away with the bride of Christ, the Anointed One, when He comes to appear in the clouds again, coming with a loud trumpet call and the voice of an Archangel, summonsing His own people with the words: “Come up here!” just before another boar would appear to gore all who were not ready for the coming of the bridegroom, refining them through fire, for a period of 3.5 years, when all Israel will be saved and the natural branch will be grafted back into the natural olive tree again.

From the sign, which appeared to us on the 9 March 2002 , it becomes very clear that the two witnesses will not pass through the tribulation as many have expected, preaching in the last 3.5 years, but will come to prepare the way before Yahshua comes to take away the 5 wise virgins, His bride, therefore the word to the prophet Daniel: 2 And many of those who sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake : some to everlasting life [ Middle of the week – 3.5 years ] and some to shame and everlasting contempt and abhorrence [ 3.5 years later – End of the week ]. [ John 5:29. ] 3 And the teachers and those who are wise [ wise virgins ] shall shine like the brightness of the firmament, and those who turn many to righteousness (to uprightness and right standing with God) [ shall give forth light ] like the stars forever and ever . [ Matt. 13:43. ] (Dan 12:2-3 Ampl) Was God coming to tell us that the time has come for the two witnesses to appear?

Through this same sign which appeared it becomes evident that these two branches are actually one tree having two branches. Prophetically the Father in heaven came to reveal truth to me and also to you. Although both the tree of Life and of good and evil stands in the middle of the garden, only the tree of life is mentioned as standing in the middle of the garden, and the tree of good and evil is only mentioned as being present also. Through this statement God shows us that He is good and does not want us to give much attention to the fruit of the tree of good and evil. The tree of Life is the main principle and that is the tree which we much eat freely and against eating this tree there is not law or command.

We must deceive whether we are going to make the main thing in our lives the law and living as if we could deserve right standing before God through our good deeds or our love for God or could lose our right standing before God through our evil deeds or our lack of love for God. Or we could rather live as God had always indented it to be: Just live in life and in the abundance of His love and acceptance for us, and the actual purpose He had always had for us to be His sons and daughters. Therefore Yahshua says: 10 The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy . I came that they may have and enjoy life , and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows) . (John 10:10 Ampl)

Therefore the vision, which the prophet Zechariah was prophetically shown of two pipes of flows of provision, which is ceaseless in its supply of oil to the lampstand, as was prophesied: 6 Then he said to me: “This [ addition of the bowl to the candlestick, causing it to yield a ceaseless supply of oil from the olive trees ] is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit [ of Whom the oil is a symbol ], says the Lord of hosts. (Zech 4:6 Ampl) Many have interpreted that Zerubbabel the governor and Joshua the high priest are the two witnesses, but they are not. There is something which supplies these two men with hope that the temple will be laid and be completed by them, and that is the loving and enduring Word of God, which came through the two prophets, Zechariah and Haggai, at that time.

Thus the two great witnesses, through which all the prophets and apostles operated, being supplied by the ceaseless supply of the oil of the Holy Spirit, is the Love of God for His people and the faith of God, which empowered them through love. The one cannot go without the other. Therefore, when Solomon built the temple according to the pattern given by YHWH to Moses, the two large cherubim wings touched one another, as was recorded in the chronicles of the kings: 10 And in the Most Holy Place he made two cherubim of image work, and they were overlaid with gold . 1 1 And the wings of the cherubim [ combined ] extended twenty cubits [ 20 cbt = 9.144m ]: one wing of one cherub was five cubits [ 5 cbt = 2.286m ], reaching to the wall of the house , and its other wing of five cubits touched the other cherub's wing . 12 And of the other cherub one wing of five cubits [ 5 cbt = 2.286m ] touched the wall of the house , and the other wing , also five cubits [ 5 cbt = 2.286m ], joined the wing of the first cherub . 13 The wings of these cherubim extended twenty cubits; the cherubim stood on their feet , their faces toward the Holy Place . (2Ch 3:10-13 Ampl) Then Solomon put the Ark of the Covenant underneath the two large extended wings of the cherubim, as was written: 6 And the priests brought the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord to its place in the Holy of Holies of the house, under the wings of the cherubim . 7 For the cherubim spread forth their two wings over the place of the ark , and the cherubim covered the ark and its poles . 8 The poles were so long that the ends of them were seen from the Holy Place before the Holy of Holies, but they were not seen outside; they are there to this day. ( 1Kings 8:5-8 Ampl )

Now the word of YHWH to Adam and what He did becomes very clear: 23 Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the Garden of Eden to till the ground [work = human effort] from which he was taken. 24 So [ God ] drove out the man ; and He placed at the east of the Garden of Eden the cherubim [ two cherubs ] and a flaming sword which turned every way , to keep and guard the way to the tree of life . [ Rev. 2:7; 22:2, 14, 19. ] (Gen 3:23-24 Ampl) God actually put two cherubs at the entrance to the garden of God, and a flaming Sword, to guard the way to the tree of life. Thus there is now other way than passing under the two cherub's wings in order to enter the garden or the kingdom of God. Now, through the Love of Christ, and by faith in Him, we have free access into the kingdom of God, once we are born from above, then we gain the right to eat to the tree of life and choose not to eat the tree of knowledge of good and evil which is also in the middle of the garden.

The Angel of the LORD – Enter In and Remain in the Spirit

The next sign that appeared to me was a large and clear sign of the Angel of the LORD, as was prophesied through the prophet Daniel, saying: 1 And at that time [ of the end = 3.5 Years before the tribulation ] Michael shall arise , the great [ angelic ] prince who defends and has charge [ Captain of the Guard = LORD of Hosts = Yahshua ] of your [ Daniel's ] people . And there shall be a time of trouble , straitness, and distress such as never was since there was a nation till that time. [ Great tribulation ] But at that time [ middle of the week = beginning of the tribulation ] your people shall be delivered [ 5 wise virgins will be raised from the dead and caught up into heaven ], everyone whose name shall be found written in the Book [ of God's plan for His own ]. (Dan 12:1 Ampl)

In my spirit I knew that God knew what the desire of my heart is. I also knew that I could not complete the calling that God, in the Anointed One, has called me to, without the power of God being made available to me, so that I would have the power of prophecy, so that all that He gives me to say will come to pass and will be done for me. When the sign of the Angel of the Lord appeared to me, I hoped that the time had come for me to breakthrough into all that God had prophesied and foreknew would come to pass, just as was prophesied: “ 1 And at that time [ of the end ] Michael shall arise ...” and as was prophesied: 1 BEHOLD, I send My messenger , and he shall prepare the way before Me . And the Lord [ the Messiah ] [ Yahshua ], Whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple ; the Messenger or Angel of the covenant [ The Angel of the LORD ], Whom you desire, behold, He [ Christ in His fullness ] shall come , says the Lord of hosts . [ Matt. 11:10; Luke 1:13-17, 76. ] (Mal 3:1 Ampl)

In the early morning hours of the night, that same night, after having attended a group meeting, in which the Spirit of God came upon me and I boldly shared about some things, which the Spirit had taught me in the past, I was woken by my daughter and my son both coughing. I was indignant toward the works of the devil, inflicting pain and sickness upon our household. I got up in determined faith and indignation and went too sat down next to my daughter to pray. I was immediately in the Spirit and discerned how both I and my daughter were attacked with fear, doubt, double mindedness, challenging my authority in Christ. I was fed up with the work of Satan and being beaten every time, unable to see the manifestation of healing, I knew I had the right and confidence in Christ! I was reminded how I had seen myself fully clothed in the Spirit with the righteousness of Christ, armed like a heavy armed soldier, having two swords in my hands and cutting at the enemy with every strike of the sword. I realized the battle in the spirit and that I have been given the advantage and was more than a conqueror, because of the price Yahshua has paid to make me righteous and to restore me to the position of authority He had intended before Adam fell.

After I had prayed I went back to bed. When I closed my eyes I realized that I had entered into the Spirit and was no longer in the flesh. I had completely passed through in the Spirit. My spiritual understanding was suddenly opened and I understood the many things in the Spirit, like I have never understood them before. For the next 3 hours, I was in the Spirit and understood many things, which I had only heard people try to explain, but did not know what they were so confidently confirming. I saw all things in the Spirit face to face, just as the apostle Paul wrote, would happen to those who are mature, saying: 11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; now that I have become a man , I am done with childish ways and have put them aside. 12 For now we are looking in a mirror that gives only a dim (blurred) reflection [ of reality as in a riddle or enigma ], but then [ when perfection comes ] we shall see in reality and face to face! Now I know in part (imperfectly), but then I shall know and understand fully and clearly , even in the same manner as I have been fully and clearly known and understood [ by God ] . 13 And so faith, hope, love abide [ faith--conviction and belief respecting man's relation to God and divine things; hope--joyful and confident expectation of eternal salvation; love--true affection for God and man, growing out of God's love for and in us ], these three; but the greatest of these is love . (1Cor 13:11-13 Ampl)

I had entered in by faith, and took hold of the kingdom of God by force. I refused to back down and therefore forced my way through, being out of the flesh or body and totally entered in the Spirit. I entered behind the veil. The Spirit taught me that when you are in the Spirit your mind gets renewed, while in the Spirit. We often try to renew our minds by human effort, but when in the Spirit our minds are renewed. I knew the mind of Christ, which is the mind of the Eternal Spirit, the Father of all Creation, for I was in Him and He was in me. The fact that I had become fed up became my key to enter in, knowing my righteousness in Christ, accepting it by faith, knowing that God loves me and that I am already His beloved son, resting with assurance in peace and absolute confidence.

While I was in the Spirit I saw many things, but I specifically remember the Holy Spirit showing me what it means to be lukewarm in the sight of God. Once when we live out of the Spirit we are hot, but when we live out of the soul, being between the Spirit and the flesh, living controlled by emotions, making us double minded, and such man must not think he will receive anything from God. Thus to live in the kingdom of God is to live out of the Spirit of Christ, so that I no longer live, but Christ lives in and through me. The life I live by faith in the Son of God and in His Love and the Father's love for me.

When I had this experience the Spirit of God suddenly opened the entire Word of God to me. I knew all things and understood the Word from the perspective of God and from the Spirit and did not interpret it from the flesh or in logic and reasoning, but from the Spirit. Suddenly I understood the word of Yahshua to the ruler of the law, Nicodemus, saying: 5 I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, unless a man is born of water and [ even ] the Spirit , he cannot [ ever ] enter the kingdom of God . [ Ezek. 36:25-27. ] ( John 3:5 Ampl) Through this experience I realized that I had passed through into the Spirit and had entered and remained in the Spirit. I realized that we mostly only see the kingdom of God and experience the Spirit in part, only having received only a foretaste of the things to come, which is in Heaven, as Yahshua explained, saying: 11 “... We speak only of what we know [ we know absolutely what we are talking about ]; we have actually seen what we are testifying to [ we were eyewitnesses of it ]. And still you do not receive our testimony [ you reject and refuse our evidence --that of Myself and of all those who are born of the Spirit ]. 12 If I have told you of things that happen right here on the earth and yet none of you believes Me, how can you believe (trust Me, adhere to Me, rely on Me) if I tell you of heavenly things ? 13 And yet no one has ever gone up to heaven , but there is One Who has come down from heaven --the Son of Man [ Himself ], Who is (dwells, has His home) in heaven . (John 3:11-13 Ampl)

Suddenly my eyes were opened and I understood why the Angel of the Lord appeared to me that same day and also understood how William Branham, John G. Lake, Smith Wigglesworth and other witnesses lived and did what they had done, through the Spirit of the Anointed One, living in them.

The Sword that the Spirit Yields

The next sign that also appeared to me was a large sign of a Mighty Sword, which appeared in the distance. When I saw this sign I knew in my Spirit that this sign did not just refer to the written Word of God, but rather to the spoken applied Word of God, as a Sword, which I am able to yield with great capability and authority.

The apostle John wrote that Yahshua was the Word of God, becoming flesh, as was written: 1 In the beginning [ before all time ] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God , and the Word was God Himself. [ Isa. 9:6. ] ( Joh 1:1 Ampl) Then John continues: 14 And the Word was made flesh , and dwelt among us , (and we beheld his glory , the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. (John 1:14 Ampl) Yahshua was the exact representation of the living fulfilment of living the Word of God. The word for Word is Logos – ??΄??? - log'-os - From G3004 ; something said (including the thought ); by implication a topic (subject of discourse), also reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive ; by extension a computation ; specifically (with the article in John) the Divine Expression (that is, Christ ).

Logos is the thoughts or reasoning of God, the wisdom of God, just as the apostle Paul wrote, saying: 9 But, on the contrary, as the Scripture says, What eye has not seen and ear has not heard and has not entered into the heart of man, [ all that ] God has prepared (made and keeps ready) for those who love Him [ who hold Him in affectionate reverence, promptly obeying Him and gratefully recognizing the benefits He has bestowed ]. [ Isa. 64:4; 65:17. ] 10 Yet to us God has unveiled and revealed them by and through His Spirit , for the [ Holy ] Spirit searches diligently , exploring and examining everything , even sounding the profound and bottomless things of God [ the divine counsels and things hidden and beyond man's scrutiny ]. 11 For what person perceives (knows and understands) what passes through a man's thoughts except the man's own spirit within him ? Just so no one discerns (comes to know and comprehend) the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God . (1Cor 2:9-11 Ampl) Therefore Paul concludes: 16 For who has known or understood the mind ( the counsels and purposes ) of the Lord so as to guide and instruct Him and give Him knowledge ? But we have the mind of Christ (the Messiah) and do hold the thoughts ( feelings and purposes ) of His heart . [ Isa. 40:13. ] (1Cor 2:16 Ampl)

Therefore Isaiah prophesied about Him, saying: 1 AND THERE shall come forth a Shoot [ Netzer – young olive shoot removed from the tree, coming out of the root system ] out of the stock of Jesse [ David's father ], and a Branch out of his roots shall grow and bear fruit. [ Isa. 4:2; Matt. 2:23; Rev. 5:5; 22:16. ] 2 And the Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him --the Spirit of wisdom and understanding , the Spirit of counsel and might , the Spirit of knowledge and of the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord - 3 And shall make Him of quick understanding , and His delight shall be in the reverential and obedient fear of the Lord. And He shall not judge by the sight of His eyes , neither decide by the hearing of His ears ; 4 But with righteousness [ imputed righteousness ] and justice shall He judge the poor and decide with fairness for the meek, the poor, and the downtrodden of the earth; and He shall smite the earth and the oppressor with the rod of His mouth , and with the breath of His lips He shall slay the wicked. 5 And righteousness shall be the girdle of His waist and faithfulness the girdle of His loins .( Isa 11:1-5 Ampl ) The Spirit of God knows the thoughts, plans, wisdom, power, perfection, righteousness and the true character of God enfolded in Love. Yahshua is that exact representation of the thoughts and character of God. Thus the fullness of the Spirit of the Father lived in and was portrayed through the Son of Man – Yahshua, Spirit made visible as a man.

We also, were called to empty ourselves of ourselves and be filled with the fullness of the character of Christ and thus of the Father and of God. Therefore Paul said to the church of the Ephesians: 1 THEREFORE BE imitators of God [ copy Him and follow His example ], as well-beloved children [ imitate their father ]. 2 And walk in love , [ esteeming and delighting in one another ] as Christ loved us and gave Himself up for us , a slain offering and sacrifice to God [ for you, so that it became ] a sweet fragrance. [ Ezek. 20:41. ] ( Eph 5:1 -2 Ampl) We must live according to the Spirit of the Word. When we become the Word of God, the Spirit lives in us, and we also become a living example or epistle of the gospel of Christ, which can be read by all, to the glory of God. Then the Logos, the desires, plans, knowledge and wisdom of God, the Word, becomes flesh in us. Once the Word live in us and constantly abide in us, we become like Christ is every way, through the righteousness imputed to us, because of the grace and abundant love of the Father.

When the Word becomes a living, active power, which lives and operates in and through us, just as the Spirit of the Father operated in Yahshua, at a point, determined by the Father, and not by human effort, but because of His righteousness, which works in us, it will cause us to pass through and enter in and remain in the Spirit. In a wink of an eye, suddenly, we will be changed and live constantly in the Spirit of Life. Then the Messenger or the Angel of the Covenant will suddenly come to His temple. Our bodies are a temple in which the Holy Spirit lives. Once we have passed through and entered behind the veil and remain anchored there, we will constantly live from the Most Holy Place, living from and through the Spirit of the One who created Heaven and earth – Yahshua.

The word: ‘Word' has two Greek meanings: Logos and Rhema. When Yahshua, after He had received the seal of approval of the Father, led by the Holy Spirit into the desert to be tempted, said to Satan: 4 It has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone , but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God . [ Deut. 8:3. ] ( Matt 4:4 Ampl) Yahshua say that it is possible to live on the Word of God. The Word used here is Rhema: ????΅a - rhe―ma - hray'-mah - From G4483 ; an utterance (individually, collectively or specifically); by implication a matter or topic (especially of narration , command or dispute); saying.

The difference between the word: Logos and Rhema is that Logos is a meditation and reasoning in your mind, while Rhema is when that meditation and thought is uttered or spoken out, just as it is written: “God said, Let there be light; and there was light.” (Gen 1:3 Ampl) God has been musing and reasoning in His heart, by the Spirit and then uttered that which was in His heart, allowing it to come out of Him, out of His mouth. God now acted upon the thoughts, wisdom and desires of His hearts.

The apostle Paul explained how those who have been cleansed must be fully clothed with and in live the mighty weapons of warfare, saying: 10 In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [ be empowered through your union with Him ]; draw your strength from Him [ that strength which His boundless might provides ]. 11 Put on God's whole armour [ the armour of a heavy-armed soldier which God supplies ], that you may be able successfully to stand up against [ all ] the strategies and the deceits of the devil. 12 For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [ contending only with physical opponents ], but against the despotisms , against the powers , against [ the master spirits who are ] the world rulers of this present darkness , against the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere . 13 Therefore put on God's complete armour, that you may be able to resist and stand your ground on the evil day [ of danger ], and, having done all [ the crisis demands ] , to stand [ firmly in your place ] . 14 Stand therefore [ hold your ground ], having tightened the belt of truth around your loins and having put on the breastplate of integrity and of moral rectitude and right standing with God , 15 And having shod your feet in preparation [ to face the enemy with the firm-footed stability , the promptness, and the readiness produced by the good news ] of the Gospel of peace. [ Isa. 52:7. ] 16 Lift up over all the [ covering ] shield of saving faith , upon which you can quench all the flaming missiles of the wicked [ one ]. 17 And take the helmet of salvation and the sword that the Spirit wields , which is the Word of God . 18 Pray at all times (on every occasion, in every season) in the Spirit , with all [ manner of ] prayer and entreaty. To that end keep alert and watch with strong purpose and perseverance , interceding in behalf of all the saints (God's consecrated people). (Eph 6:10-17 Ampl) Paul spoke of the Word of God, as part of the armour of God, saying the Sword, which the Spirit of God yields. This is an amazing statement.

When we think of the Word of God as a Sword, we see it as a sword in our hand, but Paul said the Word is the Sword, which the Spirit yields. Thus in order to truly see the Word of God being effective, it must not come from your effort of quoting the scripture, the Word of God, speaking from the flesh, but acting by faith, to enter into the Spirit and remaining there by His righteousness, then the Spirit of God effectively yields the Word like a mighty sword, destroying the works of the devil.

While I was in the Spirit and remained there I experienced the entire Word of God open up before me and I suddenly understood the Word of God, not by reasoning, but by the Spirit. Thus I did not try and interpret the Word of God, reasoning about it out of human logic, but rather I saw the Word of God was not a dead written letters on a page, but is a living entity. Thus, eg.: Love is not a Word, but a Spirit. God is Love! Fear is not a feeling, but a spirit, and must be cast out by the power of Love. Condemnation is not a feeling of guilt only, but spirit of guilt which, works in our consciences, making us feel judged and condemned, wanting us the be separated from the love of God and believing His grace for us.

As I have said before I also saw that my mind was renewed and perfected. I saw myself in Christ, pure, holy, and blameless and loved, as I am, because I am in Christ. My mind was not being renewed, but my mind was completely renewed. Thus I was not doing any effort to change, I was changed. I was perfect! Now the Spirit was doing the Work and yielding the Sword and not I myself by my skilful use of the Word of God. Thus the only work had to do was to forcefully enter in by refusing to believe otherwise. Thus I entered by faith and faith alone. The sign that appeared to me of the Mighty sword, which I called the King's Sword, appeared as a prophetic sign that day of the spiritual revelation I would receive that same night, completely entering into the Spirit, the Kingdom of God.

Sword of the Spirit

The next sign, which appeared to me, looked like a large Sword of flame of fire. Underneath the sword was a small many headed dragon. The Sword looked like a short double edged sword, as was written: 12 For the Word that God speaks is alive and full of power [ making it active , operative , energizing , and effective ]; it is sharper than any two-edged sword , penetrating to the dividing line of the breath of life (soul) and [ the immortal ] spirit , and of joints and marrow [ of the deepest parts of our nature ], exposing and sifting and analyzing and judging the very thoughts and purposes of the heart. ( Heb 4:12 Ampl) The sword referred to and used as the example of the double edged sword was compared to the old Roman sword, which was short and powerful, and very effective at jabbing the enemy. The word used in this passage for the Word of God is the Word Logos. Thus the writer says: “The Logos spoken by God is powerful. The Logos spoken not by you, but by God, is powerful and effective. How does God speak His Word? He speaks it through the Spirit, who knows the mind of God, on the inside of Him, saying: “BE!” God speaks by faith. Faith is the power that actives the Word and energizes it.

The writer continues, saying: “... penetrating to the dividing line ...” The word used for penetrate in Greek is d?????e΄?΅a? – diikneomai - dee-ik-neh'-om-ahee - From G1223 and the base of G2425 ; to reach through , that is, penetrate: - pierce . This was exactly what happened to me, on the night after I had entered into the Spirit. I had actually reached through and passed beyond the soul and the flesh, into the Spirit. God says, His Word, is a powerful Sword, which causes us to reach through and pass into the Spirit, the Most Holy Place. We are often caught up in the soul and even prevented by the experience of the soul, for believing and reaching beyond the logic and reasoning on the mind.

Below the large and powerful sign of the double edged Sword was a dividing line and beneath that was a many headed dragon, as was written: 13 You did divide the [ Red ] Sea by Your might; You broke the heads of the [ Egyptian ] dragons in the waters . [ Exod. 14:21. ] 14 You crushed the heads of Leviathan (Egypt); You did give him as food for the creatures inhabiting the wilderness . ( Ps 74:13-14 Ampl)

Through the prophet Jeremiah YHWH revealed that His word is like a consuming fire, saying: 39 Is not My Word like fire [ that consumes all that cannot endure the test ]? says the Lord, and like a hammer that breaks in pieces the rock [ of most stubborn resistance ]? ( Jer 23:29 Ampl) God told Jeremiah that He will make his word like a fire that will consume the false prophets and those who oppose the council of the Spirit that is in the prophet Jeremiah's mouth and that the prophesies which God gave Jeremiah will come to pass just as God had promised the prophet Jeremiah. This too is very significant and relevant to the question of who are the two witnesses?

Through His chosen instrument of love, the apostle John, Yahshua had chosen to reveal the future to the apostle and also those things, which will take place just before the Revelation of Yahshua in the heavens. He will change and catch His bride up or take them up by force, into the heavens, in the wink of an eye, becoming like their master and King, Yahshua, giving them the Morning Star. Then they will be with Him forever and ever and ever, never to be separated from Him and His love for them ever again. Yahshua revealed how at the appointed time the woman will give birth to the true sons of God, and then her son, will be caught up before the throne of God, as was prophesied: 5 And she brought forth a male Child [ son ], One Who is destined to shepherd (rule) all the nations with an iron staff (sceptre) [ love imputed righteousness ], and her Child was caught up [ changed in a wink of an eye = becoming like Yahshua according to the glory that lived in them ] to God and to His throne [ higher heavens where God dwells ]. [ Ps. 2:8, 9; 110:1, 2. ] ( Rev 12:5 Ampl)

Before this takes place, God will send the teachers and those who are wise, who will turn many to righteousness in Christ. Among these righteous men and women of God will be two witnesses, who will be send as a sign of the times and seasons of God, who will, like John the Baptist, prepare the way before the appearing of Yahshua in the heavens, as was prophesied: 3 And I will grant the power of prophecy to My two witnesses for 1,260 (42 months; three and one-half years), dressed in sackcloth [ humility ]. 4 These [ witnesses ] are the two olive trees and the two lampstands which stand before the Lord of the earth . [ Zech. 4:3, 11-14. ] 5 And if anyone attempts to injure them , fire pours from their mouth and consumes their enemies ; if anyone should attempt to harm them, thus he is doomed to be slain. [ II Kings 1:10; Jer. 5:14. ] 6 These [ two witnesses ] have power to shut up the sky [ power of Elijah ], so that no rain may fall during the days of their prophesying (their prediction of events relating to Christ's kingdom and its speedy triumph); and they also have power to turn the waters into blood [ power of Moses ] and to smite and scourge the earth with all manner of plagues as often as they choose. [ Exod. 7:17, 19; I Kings 17:1. ] (Rev 11:3-6 Ampl) The Lord Yahshua here reveals to John that the two witnesses are the two olive trees and the two lampstands. When I looked at the same sign of the two large branches again I saw something which looked like the rim of a candle stick holder around the two branches. Suddenly my eyes were opened and I saw that these two branches are also two candle sticks, just as was prophesied about them, saying: 16 Thus says the Lord, Who makes a way through the sea and a path through the mighty waters , 17 Who brings forth chariot and horse , army and mighty warrior . They lie down together , they cannot rise ; they are extinguished, they are quenched like a lampwick : 18 Do not [ earnestly ] remember the former things ; neither consider the things of old. 19 Behold, I am doing a new thing ! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert . (Isa 43:16-19 Ampl)

The prophecy about them says: 7 But when they have finished their testimony and their evidence is all in , the beast (monster) that comes up out of the Abyss (bottomless pit) will wage war on them , and conquer them and kill them . [ Dan. 7:3, 7, 21. ] 8 And their dead bodies [ will lie exposed ] in the open street (a public square) of the great city which is in a spiritual sense called [ by the mystical and allegorical names of ] Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified [ Jerusalem ]. [ Isa. 1:9. ] 9 For three and a half days men from the races and tribes and languages and nations will gaze at their dead bodies and will not allow them to be put in a tomb . 10 And those who dwell on the earth will gloat and exult over them and rejoice exceedingly, taking their ease and sending presents [ in congratulation ] to one another, because these two prophets had been such a vexation and trouble and torment to all the dwellers on the earth. (Rev 11:7-10 Ampl)

In conclusion the Lord revealed to me how the power will be granted to these two witnesses in order to fulfil their predestined calling and ministry of 3.5 years. The prophet Isaiah, looking into the future sees the coming of the two witnesses and through the Holy Spirit reveals an awesome principle, which we have already proved and explained, saying: ”...Who brings forth chariot and horse , army and mighty warrior As we have seen that Faith and Love are the two spiritual witnesses, which like great trees of wisdom and the power of God reveals and supplies the true motivation and reason we live in Christ Yahshua. We do not try to love God, but because of God the Father's love for us, we are able to love God and our neighbour. Therefore John, the one whom the Lord Yahshua loved, wrote: 16 And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us . God is love , and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God , and God dwells and continues in him . 17 In this [ union and communion with Him ] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us , that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [ with assurance and boldness to face Him ], because as He is, so are we in this world . 18 There is no fear in love [ dread does not exist ], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror ! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [ so ] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [ is not yet grown into love's complete perfection ]. 19 We love Him, because He first loved us . 20 If anyone says, I love God , and hates (detests, abominates) his brother [ in Christ ], he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother , whom he has seen, cannot love God , Whom he has not seen. 21 And this command (charge, order, injunction) we have from Him: that he who loves God shall love his brother [ believer ] also. (1John 4:16-21 Ampl) Herein lies the key, which Yahshua, our God has promised me when He called me and appeared to me on 9 May 2001, saying: “I will give you the key, which is Love!” It is impossible to love God when we do not know how much He first loved us.

YHWH says to the prophet that He will bring forth the army and the power . The word for power is: ?????? - ?izzu^z - iz-zooz' - From H5810 ; forcible ; collectively and concretely an army: - power, strong. The root word for this word is ??? - ?a^zaz - aw-zaz' - A primitive root; to be stout (literally or figuratively): - harden, impudent, prevail, strengthen (self), be strong. This is the same word in Greek used for power, as was written: 8 But you shall receive power ( ability, efficiency, and might ) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you , and you shall be My witnesses in Jerusalem and all Judea and Samaria and to the ends (the very bounds) of the earth . ( Acts 1:8 Ampl) The Greek word of power: d?΄?a΅?? – Dunamis - doo'-nam-is - From G1410 ; force (literally or figuratively); specifically miraculous power (usually by implication a miracle itself): - ability, abundance , meaning, might (-ily, -y, -y deed), (worker of) miracle (-s), power, strength, violence, mighty (wonderful) work. When the apostle James wrote to the “...twelve tribes scattered abroad [ among the Gentiles in the dispersion ]...” (James 1:1 Ampl) he explains how this power becomes available to those who consistently walk in righteousness and pray earnestly, saying: 16 Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [ also ] for one another , that you may be healed and restored [ to a spiritual tone of mind and heart ]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [ dynamic in its working ]. 17 Elijah was a human being with a nature such as we have [ with feelings, affections, and a constitution like ours ]; and he prayed earnestly for it not to rain , and no rain fell on the earth for three years and six months [ 3.5 years ]. [ I Kings 17:1. ] 18 And [ then ] he prayed again and the heavens supplied rain and the land produced its crops [ as usual ]. [ I Kings 18:42-45. ] (James 5:16-17 Ampl) From this revelation from the apostle James he makes it clear that Elijah was a righteousness man who knew how to earnestly pray to God and was heard because He was in right standing before YHWH. Great power was made available through the consistent righteousness of the prophet Elijah.

Thus, when YHWH showed the prophet Isaiah the future He shows Him a vehicle, which He is going to use to achieve His purposes, saying: 16 Thus says the Lord,...” “....Who brings forth chariot and horse , army and mighty warrior [power] .” (Isa 43:16 Ampl) When we combine the total revelation of what the two witnesses spiritually represent, then we find that this vehicle consist out of a chariot and a horse or an army and the power or mighty warrior. The word in Hebrew for army is: ??? - Chayil - khah'-yil - From H2342 ; probably a force , whether of men, means or other resources ; an army , wealth , virtue , valor , strength: - able, activity, (+) army, band of men (soldiers), company, (great) forces, goods , host, might, power, riches , strength, strong, substance , train, (+) valiant (-ly), valour, virtuous (-ly), war, worthy (-ily). Thus the word chariot is the container, which carries the resources, the riches or the supplies. Thus a ceaseless supply of oil is possible only when this vehicle supplies the means to provide the flow of the constant supply of oil. Put in other words, the chariot and the horse is the force and the forcible or the source and flow . In scientific terms it will be the power potential and the flow of current to do the work. There the words of Paul: 6 For [ if we are ] in Christ Jesus,...” ”,...but only faith activated and energized [ flow ] and expressed and working through love [ source ].” ( Gal 5:6 Ampl )

This is way the apostle Paul wrote: 16 May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty power in the inner man by the [ Holy ] Spirit [ Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality ]. 17 May Christ through your faith [ actually ] dwell (settle down, abide , make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love , 18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [ God's devoted people, the experience of that love ] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [ of it ]; 19 [ That you may really come ] to know [ practically, through experience for yourselves ] the love of Christ , which far surpasses mere knowledge [ without experience ]; that you may be filled [ through all your being ] unto all the fullness of God [ may have the richest measure of the divine Presence , and become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself ] ! 20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [ action of His ] power that is at work within us , is able to [ carry out His purpose and ] do superabundantly , far over and above all that we [ dare ] ask or think [ infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams ] - 21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it). (Eph 3:16-21 Ampl) Halleluyah! Here Paul makes it so clear, that he want us to be rooted deeply in the Love of God the Father and His Son, Yahshua, the Anointed One. He wants us to truly grasp this abundance of love, which is the rich treasury of His glory, which is infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams , so that according to the measure of our acceptance of the Love of God for us, by faith, abiding constantly in this love, which was revealed through the imputed righteousness, we would be made strong, be filled with the riches measure of the divine Presence of God and be filled and flooded with God, becoming like God. Then we would have the power to ask from Him whatever we wish and it will be done for us, which will then only be to the Glory of His Name.

Thus these two witnesses will be men of love and powerful faith, which is accompanied by awesome acceptance of there authority, because of the Love of the Father, therefore they are called His witnesses, which He grants the ability, the supernatural power to be a witness of His finished work on the cross and so that every matter will be established at the mouth of two or three witnesses, pointing to the accomplished work of Yahshua and fulfilment what Yahshua had promised, saying: 12 I assure you , most solemnly I tell you , if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do ; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father. ( John 14:12 Ampl)
