Revelation 11:3-6

The Two Witnesses

Revelation 11:3: “And I” [Christ] “will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days," [Three and half years] "clothed in sackcloth.” Clothes worn as a sign signifying mourning, humbling and supplication before God and Men.

Revelation 11:4: “These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.”

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

Revelation 11:6: “These” [The Two Witnesses] “have power to shut heaven, that it rain not” [draught] “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.”
