Scripture: Revelation 11:6
Verse 6 says of the witnesses, “These have power to shut heaven so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.” It sounds like the keys that Jesus possessed when He was resurrected are fully released in these two witnesses to both open and close as they will. The Kingly anointing reaches its apex in justice-on-demand through the witnesses. The interesting part of verse 6 is “as often as they desire”. Revelation reveals that judgment released from heaven will honor the desire of the witnesses based on what they experience and how they respond. Can you imagine God honoring what you demand based on the injustice that you experience. That is a picture every one of us needs to get as we approach the end of the age, the greedy, the vile, the filthy, and the perverse will be so abominable in their actions that what we desire has a good chance of being honored if we know we have a right to demand it covenantally. When the church gets that perspective then darkness may start to flee long enough to gain a harvest.
