Daily Devotions: December 16, 2014

Today’s Bible reading is Revelation chapter 11

(Read the entire New Testament in 2014 by reading only one chapter each day)

The Great Tribulation period will last seven years. It is divided into two- three and a half year periods. The seven year Tribulation period marks the most horrific time on earth. The second three and a half years will be worse than the first. The Jews will be under intense persecution. The Antichrist will be in full power. The world will be in utter chaos, the absolute worse it has ever been. It is then that God raises up the two witnesses. The two witnesses are two of the most powerful preachers who ever lived, who have been called by God during the darkest days on earth.  These two men have characteristics like that of Moses and Elijah. Whether it is actually Moses and Elijah or not these two men have been granted power to preach God’s message. They are invincible at first but when their mission is complete they will be killed by the beast. Their bodies will lie in the street for three days. The whole world will watch and even rejoice over the death of these two preachers. It will be a world so hostile to the Gospel that it hates and even rejoices at the death of God’s holy men. God vindicates His servants, as He always does, and He raises them from the dead. God’s swift hand of judgement will put a stop to hell celebrating the tragic death of these two preachers, and will result in many Jews getting saved and who will give glory to the God of heaven!

Prayer: “Dear Father in heaven, thank You for the two witnesses You will raise up during the Tribulation, may You raise us up today to be faithful witness for You. In Jesus name. Amen.”
