The Two Witnesses (1)

My Thoughts: If the two witnesses are indeed Moses and Elijah, as some have suggested, then the revelation is more likely to be spiritual, rather then physical. It would be two types of anointing: Moses as a leader and mover of the people and Elijah as a prophetic  slayer of false worship.

Moses' cry was "Let My People Go". He was an Israelite brought up as an Egyptian, in the household of Pharaoh. He knew and understood the workings of the Egyptian world as a prince and privileged member of the society. He was educated as a member of the royality and intimately familiar with the ways of the Egyptians. He was not brought up as a slave, as the rest of the Israelites. He was separated as a baby and only knew the Egyptian way of privilege.

But he forsook all that to become a shepherd. He left the highest level of elevation within the land, that of Pharaoh's household and became a member of the lowest order. A shepherd, a person of no renown or  reputation within accepted society - a nobody, a non entity.

He had tried to amend a wrong, to make a bad deed good in the way of mankind, (as many do) by taking the life of a tormentor of his people. He had been moved by the injustice and he identified with the victim, one of his own people by birth. But he reacted in the manner of a privileged entitled Egyptian - to take the life of another. After all, he was a prince of the land and under the law of the land, he probably had the power to do it and "get away with it". He might have even felt to be above the law, because of the "rightness" of it and his position as a privileged member of Pharaoh's family. But unfortunately (maybe!) for him, the act was witnessed and spoken of by other. It eventually got back to Pharaoh. Then, because he had killed an Egyptian, rather than an Israelite, this was a "problem".

So he fled and for 40 years lived the exact opposite of his former life. Maybe he felt this was punishment for his act; penance. His "fall from grace" was complete, from the highest to the lowest. From the best that Egypt could offer a man to the lowest existing subsistence living. The Egyptians despised those who earned their living by manual means, by labouring - that was what slaves did and they were far above that. Now Moses himself who had been waited upon was waiting upon others: sheep! Learning the hard way about a life of humility. The soft hands of a prince becoming the callused hands of a shepherd. Coming to put his flock's requirements before his own, serving them in their needs, and not his own. He would slowly and surely have learned true humility.

When Moses saw the burning bush and was moved by curiosity to investigate, he was 80 years old - not a young man anymore. When God introduced himself to Moses, He introduced himself as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He established His credentials with Moses through his bloodline, which by that time was 400 plus years old. And Moses was ready and able to respond to his God. At that moment began the transformation from a humble shepherd to a leader and mover of men with God's anointing.

What if this transformation is the witness of the last days? The Moses prototype - a privileged life, humbled by God, then when ready transformed to become a powerful witness - a person able to handled the authority of God, to reveal the power of God to "Let My People Go". To free the slaves of this last days age from the confines and restrictions of their lives into the freedom of God's life and ways. Only in our time, not just one person but many people who are blessed with the same anointing as Moses.

Witnesses, as he was, to demonstrate the awesome hand of God - to set the captives free. And now, because it is not just 400 years of slavery, but 2000 years, it is much more embedded in the hearts of men; both Israel and Gentiles. Even greater for the Gentiles because they have never known the hand of God in their lives. Maybe This is why the witness of God is greater than ever before and the latter rain is greater than the former - because it needs to be.

The many many Believers who will rise up under the power of this anointing will be an unstoppable force, mighty in the power of God.  They will weld it as Moses did.  They will not steal God's Glory, as Moses did not. They will remain humble before God, as Moses did. And God will set the captives free - not Moses or his spirit but God himself. Through the worship of Jesus Jeshua and the Holy Spirit.

Many Many Moses' working with God, Jesus and Holy Spirit to set God's people free. Glory Glory Glory to You Lord God Almighty!

 


Moses' story is in Exodus

Rev 11:3 And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.”

Number 12 3 (Now Moses was a very humble man, more humble than anyone else on the face of the earth.)

Matt 17:1-3 After six days Jesus took with him Peter, James and John the brother of James, and led them up a high mountain by themselves. There he was transfigured before them. His face shone like the sun, and his clothes became as white as the light. Just then there appeared before them Moses and Elijah, talking with Jesus
