Why the 2 Witnesses in Rev. will be hated by the whole world?

Almost 1/3 of the world population are Christians.

Although I know that the west world is drifting away from GOD

But the very foundation and ethic of west is the Christianity

And that will never be upside down

And the Christian population is grow very rapidly in Africa and east(such as china and Korea)

And this tendency seems will lasting for a long time

So why the last 2 prophets, the living prophets ,the living Biblical people, the living people of God,the 2 Witnesses in Rev will be hated world-wide? the people read Bible and worship God everyday do not welcome God’s prophets ,it is can not be understand.

The 2 witnesses will be here on earth during the time of Tribulation when Christians will be absent, and what remains will be the unrighteous. They will be here to witness of the Messiah to the Jew. The Antichrist and the wicked world will hate them and kill them, but they will rise again to the world's astonishment.

When the two witnesses arrive with their message, I believe that we will finally see just how far away from God a lot of us have drifted, which will be a blessing to us.  The world will hate them, but we are not of the world.

Yet we won't be here to determine anything about it.

That is yet to be seen..  Being that this is not a rapture thread, please do not try to turn it into one.  There are more than enough going on already.

It will be because to belong to the mainstream Christian Church in that time of God's two witnesses, it will mean being deceived by the coming Antichrist.

 

Have you not read Apostle Paul's warning in 2 Thess.2:3-4 about those who fall away linked with that coming Antichrist to sit in the temple of God (means at Jerusalem) and exalt himself as God, and over all that is called God, or that is worshipped?

 

In Matt.24:23-26 our Lord Jesus was describing the coming Antichrist, using the idea of 'a pseudo Christ' (pseudochristos in the Greek). He said that pseudo-Christ will work great signs and wonders that would if possible, deceive His own very elect servants. So what about those in the Church that are deceived by that coming pseudo-Christ? They will think that pseudo-Christ really is our Lord Jesus having come.

 

As for other of the world's religions being deceived by the coming pseudo-Christ, that should be a no brainer. He already pretty much has them in his hand today.

 

So there's the main point, even many brethren will be deceived in not knowing who that coming pseudo-Christ really is. They will bow to him in ignorance, and thus follow the rest of the world against God's two witnesses.

I think another part of the two witnesses is that they die, come back to life by Gods spirit, and then they they go up to heaven. This is a witness against those who will not turn from sin and turn to God. The term witness in the early church carried the meaning of one who was killed for the faith, very unlike how we use the term witness today.

At the point where these two prophets are in Israel, the world will be in complete turmoil and war. It says ALL of the nations with be at war with Israel and these two prophets will be holding back these world armies through the power of God for 3 1/2 years.  Usually world can mean the bad people, or also termed as Babylon - just meaning wickedness. So these two prophets hold back all these nations who have great war machines for 3 1/2 years, which will drive the world crazy. They will be so upset about this.

We know that men's hearts will fail them in the last days. They will lose their morals, their faith, and a lot will fall away. Christians, as you say, or let's just say, anyone of good morals and faith, will flee from the wicked. They wont be a part of the world war against Israel. Though the good population may be growing, the more part of the world will continue to be deceived by the beast (false governments and systems of religion) and will follow the beast to destruction. The wicked will want so much to destroy Israel, but be stopped by two prophets! Then they will finally kill the two prophets who will lay in the streets for 3 1/2 days while the armies ravage Israel, then the Lord will come to mount olivet and save his people.

Hi silviawang.

 

Yes, they will be hated so much that when they are killed, the world will celebrate and give gifts to one another.

They are hated because they stopped the rain and changed water into blood.

And caused as many plagues as they will.

Since the world  named the false prophet the antichrist; this is to mistalken them

for the false prophet and the anichrist.

There is only the false prophet; no antichrist as one person.Rev,19:20.

 

We must watch carefully.

I could see where the two witnesses could be viewed as the "Moses and Aaron" of the end times.  By that I mean they could, in addition to shutting the sky, call out the false prophet and pronounce the plagues on his kingdom.  The conditions before they are killed will be so oppressive.  I imagine that things start to return to normal after their death, which is reason enough for gift-giving.

 

And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate; and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.

The term witness in the early church carried the meaning of one who was killed for the faith, very unlike how we use the term witness today.

Just for the sake of clarity, the term witness, at the time of the writing of the book of Revelation, meant simply one who testifies to what one has seen or heard. That is very like the way we use it today. The Greek word is "martysin", just means witness, in a normal, literal sense. However, where Cletus is right, is that in the early church, because witnesses for Jesus were often killed for their faith, the work came to be associated with that fact, and we get our word martyr, from that. This use of the word, is recorded as early as in the writings of Josephus, but it is doubtful that it was intended to be understood in the book of Revelation, to mean "one who was killed for the faith", however, it is clear in Revelation, that this will happen to the two witnesses.

Omegaman, I am curious as to why you say its doubtful witness is not meant to mean martyr? The greek word in revelation 11:3 is martus and it is strongs number 3144. In my strongs it says this... a "martyr" :-martyr, record, witness. To me that seems pretty clear its one who is killed for the faith, and I am left wondering are you looking at another instance of the word witness? Do you have another study refrence scource? Where are you getting that from?

Edit: also in my study notes I have the book of revelation written around 70-95 A.D. I am not certian when the church was no longer considered "the early church" bit that seems like it would fit into being the early church?

i've been fishing for a couple of weeks and we have been blessed with moderate temperatures and mostly sunshine.   It's been a good two weeks.    It did get up to 98 one day but only for a couple of hours   Mostly in the low 90's which is cool for us in the summer time.

 

This morning when I got up it was 62 degrees with no wind and the sun was just coming up......   the view across the lake was stunning.

 

We're home now and it's going to rain with highs in the mid to upper 70's.......    three or four years ago it was 114...    I just love this global warming.

 

 

 

Oh, and to get back on track here::::

Rev 11:2-7

3 "And I will grant authority to my two witnesses , and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth." 4 These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth. 5 And if anyone desires to harm them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies; and if anyone would desire to harm them, in this manner he must be killed. 6 These have the power to shut up the sky, in order that rain may not fall during the days of their prophesying; and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood, and to smite the earth with every plague, as often as they desire.

NASB

 

 

 

I really do think that these things will not make them many friends among the unbelievers.   I just hope they will make it rain at our house.

Hi silviawang,

 

You asked, `Why the 2 Witnesses in Rev. will be hated by the whole world?`

 

Now we know that these 2 men are witnessing in Jerusalem. (Rev. 11: 8) They are witnessing to what they have seen & heard. Israel as a nation does not know that Christ is their Messiah. This is what the 2 men are witnessing about. There are specific events that they tell of what they have seen & heard concerning Christ -

 

1. These 2 men talked with Christ prior to His death. Christ told them what was about to happen to Him & why. (Luke 9: 30)

 

2. At the tomb they had witnessed Christ`s resurrection. (Luke 24: 4)

 

3. Then when Christ ascended into heaven, these 2 men also witnessed this great event. (Acts 1: 10)

 

 

Thus we see these 2 men appearing to Israel during the second half of the tribulation witnessing of Christ, not only as their soon coming KIng but also as their High priest, the one who gave His life for them & rose victorious over sin & death.

Oh this is an easy one...

 

Because the truth (the word of God) opposes what people believe / think / want to be truth. Even in Churches and among Christians.

 

Why do you think there is so much fighting in even these forums?

 

The Bible says the Church is comprised entirely of the priesthood of the believers (no clergy / laity divisions) and most churches are set up as clergy / laity, so they hate you for telling them that. 

 

The Church is Spirit Israel (not physical Israel but the Spirit Israel that physical Israel was first called to be but rejected it) and now the Jews and the Church and the Messianic Jews hate you for showing where the Bible says this.

 

See, getting the world to hate you is a piece of cake so long as you let the Bible speak through the Holy Spirit... lots of blood has been shed over this sort of thing...

Watch how easy this is (getting hated)...

 

The star of David. Mark of the beast.

 

6 point star

6 triangle points

6 sided center

 

Notice it is NOT simply a six point star:

 

STAR07.jpg

 

It is a 666 star:

 

T791124A1.gif

In ancient times it was used as the signet ring or seal of Solomon who dabbled in the occult whilst building a temple God never told him to build.

 

Zechariah 6:12-13 (NASB95)
12 “Then say to him, ‘Thus says the Lord of hosts, “Behold, a man whose name is Branch, for He will branch out from where He is; and He will build the temple of the Lord.
13 “Yes, it is He who will build the temple of the Lord, and He who will bear the honor and sit and rule on His throne. Thus, He will be a priest on His throne, and the counsel of peace will be between the two offices.” ’

 

...is the corrected interpretation of:

 

2 Samuel 7:12-13 (NASB95)
12 “When your days are complete and you lie down with your fathers, I will raise up your descendant after you, who will come forth from you, and I will establish his kingdom.
13 “He shall build a house for My name, and I will establish the throne of his kingdom forever.

 

But God condescended to deal with Israel through the temple system from that point on till the end of the Old Covenant (and you will note Israel was rarely in God's good favor after that point for any length of time). Yes, God does make concessions. He did with the monarchy in 1 Samuel 8. Read it for yourselves. God bends over backwards to try to save us. Certain doctrines he will not compromise on. But he has made concessions in all of our lives. Which is a blessing and sad at the same time. 

 

The so called Star of David was a symbol Hitler used to label the Jews. The modern state of Israel took the symbol as spite towards Hitler and all who hated them.

 

The actual symbol of the nation / state seal of Israel is the seven candle menorah.

 

6a00d834515b7869e2011570993b4d970c.jpg

 

In recent press releases Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu has had this symbol in the background.

 

The actual Seal of Solomon (Star of David) is an ancient occult symbol:

 

images.jpg

 

During the building of the first Jewish temple many foreign artisans and materials were brought in along with their pagan religious practices.

 

Tradition (may or may not be true) link the founding of Freemasonry to the building of the first Jewish temple...

 

The Masonic lodge has been proven to be pagan / occultic (as discovered in the higher Scottish rite degrees) fyi I ain't no Mason never was and I swore no oaths to keep this stuff quiet (which is what actually what got cult leader Joseph Smith jr assassinated in Carthage, IL on June 27, 1884... having inculcated many masonic rites into Mormonism).

 

FYI, the calculation of the number in Revelation 13:18 (666) is the precise years to the day (in prophetic years) of the destruction of the two Jewish Temples (Solomon's Tisha b' Av 586 BCE and Herod's Tisha b' Av 70 CE). CE = Christian Era BCE = Before Christian Era

 

See?

 

I am sure people (believers even) are seething mad at me now...

 

It will be no problem for the two witnesses in Revelation to be hated by everybody.

The Bible teaches that in the end time the Beast will trick Israel into believing he is the Christ. He will blaspheme and have the word cast out all that is New Testament affirming the Old Covenant in the last seven years, but renege on this in the middle of that seven year  period... returning humanities religious world views and center to Babylon. Then the Jews he hoodwinked will rebel as the Christians had at the beginning of the Beast's rise to power... and the world will turn on the Jews to the point of their utter annihilation... but just before that point the few who survive to that point will cry out to Jesus (since nothing else has worked and they are desperate and sadly cry out to him as a last resort). Then he will come as it speaks of him in Zechariah and Revelation 14.

 

I am not a pastor (by human standards / traditions of men) so I cannot start a Bible study here to show where and how the Bible teaches all of this. If a pastor here will start the topic in the Bible study section, I will be happy to show these things there.

Thanks for bravely speaking the truth. In Matthew 24 Jesus warned Jews against following false Christs. The Jews were expecting their Christ to be a Jewish leader who would lead them to victory against their enemies. Any Jewish leader claiming to be such a Christ is not from God, because Jesus the true Christ will be unmistakable when He appears.

In Romans The LORD Through Brother Saul

 

Is Ephraim my dear son? is he a pleasant child? for since I spake against him, I do earnestly remember him still: therefore my bowels are troubled for him; I will surely have mercy upon him, saith the LORD. Jeremiah 31:20

 

Warned The Unloving Gentiles

 

For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

 

And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

 

For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins. Romans 11:25-27

 

About Their Conceit

 

For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble, and to revive the heart of the contrite ones. Isaiah 57:15

Bravely Speaking

 

What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision?

 

Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God.

 

For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? Romans 3:1-3

 

The

 

Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

 

And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. Mark 16:14-15

 

Truth

 

Thy word is true from the beginning: and every one of thy righteous judgments endureth for ever. Psalms 119:160

 

~

 

I Praise The Good LORD Above

 

By faith Jacob, when he was a dying, blessed both the sons of Joseph; and worshipped, leaning upon the top of his staff.

 

By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.

 

By faith Moses, when he was born, was hid three months of his parents, because they saw he was a proper child; and they were not afraid of the king's commandment. Hebrews 11:21-23

 

For His Beloved Jews

 

By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter;

 

Choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season;

 

Esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures in Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompence of the reward.

 

By faith he forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.

 

Through faith he kept the passover, and the sprinkling of blood, lest he that destroyed the firstborn should touch them.

 

By faith they passed through the Red sea as by dry land: which the Egyptians assaying to do were drowned. Hebrews 11:24-29

 

For

 

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

 

Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.

 

But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.

 

And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.

 

Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,

 

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

 

Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:

 

And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS. Matthew 1:18-25

 

Without Them

 

And what shall I more say? for the time would fail me to tell of Gedeon, and of Barak, and of Samson, and of Jephthae; of David also, and Samuel, and of the prophets:

 

Who through faith subdued kingdoms, wrought righteousness, obtained promises, stopped the mouths of lions,

 

Quenched the violence of fire, escaped the edge of the sword, out of weakness were made strong, waxed valiant in fight, turned to flight the armies of the aliens. Hebrews 11:32-34

 

I Would Have Little In Comfort

 

Women received their dead raised to life again: and others were tortured, not accepting deliverance; that they might obtain a better resurrection:

 

And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment:

 

They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; Hebrews 11:35-37
 

In This Life To Cling

 

(Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

 

And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise:

 

God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect. Hebrews 11:38-40

 

To

 

Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee. Psalms 119:11

Don't be fooled by what they say. For that day will not come until there is a great rebellion against God and the man of lawlessness is revealed--the one who brings destruction. 2 Thessalonians 2:3 (NLT)

Why the 2 Witnesses in Revelation will be hated by the whole world?

Almost 1/3 of the world population are Christians.
Although I know that the west world is drifting away from GOD
But the very foundation and ethic of west is the Christianity
And that will never be upside down
And the Christian population is grow very rapidly in Africa and east (such as china and Korea)
And this tendency seems will lasting for a long time

So why the last 2 prophets, the living prophets, the living Biblical people, the living people of God, the 2 Witnesses in Revelation will be hated world-wide? the people read Bible and worship God everyday do not welcome God’s prophets, it is can not be understand
.

The Great Offense Is Jesus Christ And Him Crucified

 

So when we preach that Christ was crucified, the Jews are offended and the Gentiles say it's all nonsense. 1 Corinthians 1:23 (NLT)

 

And I Believe It Is Jesus (Yeshua) That The Two Preach

 

Then I was given a measuring stick, and I was told, “Go and measure the Temple of God and the altar, and count the number of worshipers. But do not measure the outer courtyard, for it has been turned over to the nations. They will trample the holy city for 42 months.

 

And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will be clothed in burlap and will prophesy during those 1,260 days.” Revelation 11:1-3 (NLT)

 

And They Preach Jesus With Power

 

These two prophets are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of all the earth. If anyone tries to harm them, fire flashes from their mouths and consumes their enemies. This is how anyone who tries to harm them must die.

 

They have power to shut the sky so that no rain will fall for as long as they prophesy. And they have the power to turn the rivers and oceans into blood, and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they wish.These two prophets are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of all the earth.

 

If anyone tries to harm them, fire flashes from their mouths and consumes their enemies. This is how anyone who tries to harm them must die. They have power to shut the sky so that no rain will fall for as long as they prophesy. And they have the power to turn the rivers and oceans into blood, and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they wish. Revelation 11:4-6 (NLT)

 

So The World Is Offended

 

When they complete their testimony, the beast that comes up out of the bottomless pit will declare war against them, and he will conquer them and kill them.

 

And their bodies will lie in the main street of Jerusalem, the city that is figuratively called “Sodom” and “Egypt,” the city where their Lord was crucified.

 

And for three and a half days, all peoples, tribes, languages, and nations will stare at their bodies. No one will be allowed to bury them. All the people who belong to this world will gloat over them and give presents to each other to celebrate the death of the two prophets who had tormented them. Revelation 11:7-10 (NLT)

 

IMO

 

But after three and a half days, God breathed life into them, and they stood up! Terror struck all who were staring at them.

 

Then a loud voice from heaven called to the two prophets, “Come up here!” And they rose to heaven in a cloud as their enemies watched. Revelation 11:11-12 (NLT)
