Bible Question and Answer
Welcome to our bi-weekly post where we provide Bible verses, answers and advice to the questions and concerns you have. During the course of the last two weeks readers have submitted their questions and today we are going to answer some of them. So please join us and feel free to chime in on the discussion in the comments section below this post.

Before we get into this week’s questions we would like to point out that you are helping to spread the Word of God by your continued submission of questions. Because of your ongoing participation these Q&A posts have been read thousands of times. Without your participation this section of our site would not exist. So if you have a Biblical or non-Biblical question you would like to ask, submit it now for our next edition of “Bible: Question, Answer and Discussion“.

Question 1:

Name: Tracie
Question: Are the two witnesses in Rev. human or supernatural?  Rev. mentions killed and left in streets for three days. And you are only born through the womb once. I’m a little confused please explain. Much Love and Thank You.

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Tracie thank you for the question.

I believe the Two Witnesses as of today are supernatural, simply meaning they occupy their spiritual body which never gets sick, old or dies. Hebrews 9:27 does say, “it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” We know Enoch and Elijah did not die, but rather they were taken by our Father and they seem like a good fit. There are many arguments as to who it will be, instead of guessing we will just wait for that wonderful day.

Please turn your Bible with me to,

Revelation 11:3-4
3  “And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.”

4  “These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.

This verse would seem to document that the Two Witnesses are currently standing before our Father’s Throne so they would have to be in their spiritual bodies in Heaven.

Revelation 11:5-6
5  “And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.”

6  “These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.”

Verse 5-6 both document our Father gives these Two Witnesses great powers so we know they have supernatural ability, but are they in their spiritual body while on earth? No, why?

Revelation 11:7-8
7  “And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.”

8  “And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.”

Their dead bodies, that is pretty clear that while on earth these two will be occupying a flesh body just like you and I.

 

 

Question 2:

Name: Jimmy
Question: Is Daniel 7:25 talking about the mark of the beast? By changing the time and the law or the Sabbath to Sunday. Thanks I enjoy reading you posts.

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Thank you for the question Jimmy and it is good to hear you are enjoying the site.

Daniel 7:25 is not talking about the Mark of the Beast, but the Beast himself who is Satan. Remember, there are two beasts in the book of Revelation. Satan’s Beast Government and the Beast with two horns who looks like a lamb which is Satan’s role as the false messiah.

Please turn your Bible with me to,

Daniel 7:25
25 “And he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws: and they shall be given into his hand until a time and times and the dividing of time. “

Essentially Satan changing times and laws is him taking over the entire world and escalating himself to God status. This is going to be the biggest event that has ever transpired on the globe.

Notice the Saints are given into Satan’s hand for three and a half times. Why? Because at the midst of the week Satan has complete control of the world and will then reign as the false messiah. This is equal to 3.5 years, half of the original time allotted for the Tribulation.

The Saints and the Two Witnesses will speak against Satan during that time and it is then when some of them will be delivered up before Satan to be a witness for the world and fulfill the scriptures of our Father.

Question 3:

Name: Craig
Question: We know that the Fig Tree, Israel, was born in 1948 and it stands written that “..this generation..” that is, the generation that starts the generational clock, ” shall not pass..” unto the coming of our Lord and Savior Yashua Messiah.  We also know there are 40, 70, and 120 year generations in GODs WORD.  Another sign given is that at the head of the virgin (Virgo), the sun will be and at her feet the moon will be.  In 2018, the 70 year generation will come to pass. Also, the sign in Virgo will be seen and will Not be seen again for over 600 years.  We do not know the day or hour of HIS coming but are given these signs (although the final sign will be the death of the Two Witnesses and 3 days later their resurrection upon HIS. COMING), wouldn’t the Final Five month reign of the evil one possibly be from May 2018 thru September 2018?

Answer:

Name: Brandon T. Ward
Answer: Craig thank you for the question.

I have looked into what you mentioned in the past and it is interesting no doubt. I know you are not setting dates, you are curious and I think that is okay. So much prophecy has come to pass over the course of the last few years and it is only escalating. We see an absolute decline in morality of our world. I think there is no doubt we are closing in on the end of this age of flesh.

Satan could be cast out of Heaven in the next few years, but we do not know for sure. We still need to see the fall of Damascus (Isaiah 17:1) and Iran (Daniel 8). Then of course we need to see Jerusalem encompassed with armies (Luke 21:20). Those are some of the indicators we should be looking for right now.

That having been said, how do we know it is not the 120 year generation? How do we know for certain this last generation did not start in 1967 with the capture of Jerusalem? Jerusalem is the spot we are supposed to watch closely so it does make sense the clock could have started in 1967 and not 1948. These are all things to consider and think about when we are pondering thoughts as you have. I know we all look forward to His return, but I just want to ensure everyone is thinking through all of the options. In the meantime, let us all continue to share His most precious Word with the world.

Edit: The Biblical generations are 40, 70 and 120 years.

 

We would like to thank our Father for giving us this platform in order to spread His most precious Word. We would also like to thank our readers for submitting their questions and giving us the opportunity to share them with the audience.
