Enoch and Elijah
the two olive trees and the two sons of oil Then he said, "These are the two anointed ones who stand by the Lord of the whole earth." And he saith, 'These are the two sons of the oil, who are standing by the Lord of the whole earth.' 4:11-14 Zechariah desires to know what are the two olive trees.
as we do as well , For me there is no direct answer , but its shrouded in mystery , at this time of Zech especially
I still believe the two witnesses are the Spirit and Truth and they are found in Moses and Elijah BEING IN THE SPIRIT & fire /OIL AND JESUS CHRIST /WORD OF GOD/ TRUTH , the law and prophets can appear to to be dead in the street at times
and the Thing for me is it takes both the Spirit and the Truth to move in any witness to declare Gods glory in the earth
and both certainly can bring judgments on mankind and beast and every living thing at any time , The Word judges us by the Spirit of truth
who are these two with the LORD OF THE EARTH !So he said to me, "This is the word of the Lord to Zerubbabel: 'Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the Lord Almighty.
7"What are you, mighty mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become level ground
. Then he will bring out the capstone to shouts of 'God bless it! God bless it!' "
8Then the word of the Lord came to me: 9"The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this temple; his hands will also complete it. Then you will know that the Lord Almighty has sent me to you.
10"Who dares despise the day of small things, since the seven eyes of the Lord that range throughout the earth will rejoice when they see the chosen Cornerstone in the hand of Zerubbabel?" http://www.abarim-publications.com/Meaning/Zerubbabel.html#.VINCTzHF9eU
11Then I asked the angel, "What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lampstand?"
12Again I asked him, "What are these two olive branches
beside the two gold pipes that pour out golden oil?"
13He replied, "Do you not know what these are?"
"No, my lord," I said.
14So he said, "These are the two who are anointed to serve the Lord of all the earth." not by strength and not by might but BY MY SPIRIT says the Lord !
When we look at the vision of and seen the Transfiguration of Jesus Christ in Matt 17 showing for me
that all three stood and talked together ,as Christ was fulfilling all the law and prophets as ONE BEING SHINING AS THE SUN in strength , yet they are with Him always for me saying what ? Now the Cross of Jesus Christ If you believe that the blood and water and the Spirit are what poured out of the Lords side when the spear pierced Him , the Blood being all that died in the Lord and its the judgments poured out in the earth and on Baylon giving Her blood to drink of all the Law and prophets and Jesus Christ being ALL IN ONE /with Him always , and the judgments begin in the earth , and the flood of water that takes them all away not building on the ROCK foundation Jesus and the Holy Spirit oil and the Fire that is describing Jesus Christ , He was not just a man hanging on a tree like many thought and this would be the end of it , it was the Beginning of a whole new way , taking out the old and making everything new best way to look is seeing Rev 11 in that light to me and than look though the old testament for the fire and water and blood verses
They have the power to shut heaven for us as being Judgment , I do believe this is why Jesus said we would as sheep go in and out to pasture , eating the green LIFE and go right back into judgments in the earth to LEARN HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS , , showing mercy and grace and not judgment , because when we judge we are being judged also who are the two olive trees [planted of the Lord ] and lampstands [2 assemblies ] with the LORD OF THE WHOLE EARTH ALWAYS ? I believe they are our judges !!!! to the left and Right of the LORD /CENTER OF ALL THINGS !
Remember How Jesus told them sitting to my left or right is not mine to give but the Father gives this only ? Matthew 20:23 ESV
English Standard Version
He said to them, "You will drink my cup, but to sit at my right hand and at my left is not mine to grant, but it is for those for whom it has been prepared by my Father.
jOHN 5 ;45Do you think that I am accusing you before The Father? There is one who accuses you:
Moses, the one in whom you hope.
I do believe this is why Satan argued over the body of Moses and the angel Michael said the LORD REBUKE YOU SATAN , Because moses natural force was not abated (of something perceived as hostile, threatening, or negative) become less intense or widespread. and the Body of Moses is the assembly of judgments in the earth , if we judge by that Law we will also be judged by that fiery Law .... and Elijah / being John the Baptist in that same Spirit was set to clear the path for the Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ , it was with Fire upon all the false witness , for me its like this Moses was said as so much as a beast touches the mountain it will be stoned , the beast is cast into the fire for burning , and Elijah was to destroy the false prophets casting them in the Fire and last is satan whom the Lord Jesus seals up
for the time till loosed for the little season before cast into the fire
all three are BOUND by the fire of Gods judgments
and Than it was Jesus IN THE GLORY and the Cloud/ heavenly witness appeared and Spirit said Listen to Me beloved Son for me they are in and with the SON
This is how I understand it to the best of mine ability I do believe the scriptures must be compared to other scriptures in order to understand what the Lord is saying to us By His Holy Spirit , they must have the answers in the WORD to be interpreted properly
it goes so deep and wide I cannot keep it all in my heart
