Scripture: Revelation 11:1-7
Revelation 11:1-7 describes the anointing that will be available in the end-times. Apparently to walk in this anointing, the witnesses have to embrace martyrdom. The Scripture is clear that they do not enable evil, but judge it! There are those that believe the two witnesses are two individuals. There are others who believe that the two witnesses are the witness of salvation and the witness of judgment. If the two witnesses are the salvation anointing and the judicial anointing, then we have some growing to do judicially. If, however, we view the two witnesses as two individuals, then we escape the responsibility of preparation! The nature of the battle is what I believe is more important to the church. God does not “turn-the-other-cheek” to evil! In Revelation 2, He rebuked the church at Thyatira for it and told them if they continued, He would kill their disciples with death. That is fairly significant. What is our attitude toward evil? Are we prepared, by the direction of the Spirit, to pray against judges and politicians who advance it? Do we ask for the judicial Hand of God to come and remove them? In every Christian to which that concept is foreign, we find the essence of why evil is growing and prevailing. Layer Five of God’s love provides an anointing for His people to finish their testimony. The witnesses finished their testimony. Every one of us should understand that God’s covenant enables us to finish our testimony. No one can take our life before we have finished our race. Finishing our testimony and the anointing to walk it out should be our goal for this year. It should be possessed, it should grow and it should strengthen until we come into the full measure of what God has for the last great harvest!
