The two witnesses in Jerusalem
Mr. Arlen Berkey, in "The Work of God in the Laodicean Era,"
makes a statement nobody in God's Church would disagree with:
"The whole world will soon know about the two witnesses. They
will not be welcome by this world."
We are not responsible for how the world reacts to these two men
(it does NOT say ministers), however, we should question whether
the two witnesses will be welcome by God's Church!
Does that sound preposterous? Presumptuous? Not if you're
well-versed in holy Scripture! It was often the religious who
opposed the Prophets and it was the religious leaders who
stirred up the people to cry out against Jesus: "Crucify Him!"
There is nothing new under the sun.
The two witnesses will be sent by God in the spirit of Elijah.
The chief spokesman between the two will hail from the royal
house of David and fulfills the Elijah role and will shake up
the earth by his God-given MESSAGE and MIRACLES! (Zechariah
Herbert W. Armstrong, in the spirit of Elijah, laid the
foundation for such a great Work, and restored precious truths
to God's CHURCH. Jesus Christ will restore God's government to
the entire Earth (Acts 3:21). The interlude finds the leader of
the two witnesses, in the spirit of Elijah/HWA, restoring truth
to the NATION of Israel (Malachi 4:4). There is no
contradiction! This is based upon the Law and the Covenant and
is testifed to by the Prophets.
Some might initially resist God's choice of men to fulfill the
controversial roles of the two witnesses (Jeremiah 15:10). Even
Moses' met rejection by his own people God sent him to save
(Acts 7:25, 35). Moses and Aaron met first with the elders of
Israel before going before pharaoh (Exodus 4:29). God's Church
will know the identity of the two witnesses before the world
sees them take the stand in Jerusalem.
God's apostle, Herbert W. Armstrong, saw we must reach "the
cities of Judah" and yet God didn't permit him to do it! But God
will give Judah His Message, last but not least! God has been
raising up someone for this very purpose (Isaiah 41:27).
Mr. Armstrong also began to see that God's Church has a DIVINE
COMMISSION to help physically prepare for Christ's coming to
Jerusalem! Read and believe it for yourself in Mr. Armstrong's
autobiography and wonder why you haven't heard any of your
ministers preaching about it or chomping at the bit to get it
Soon the two witnesses will rise and shine in this world of
darkness, and finish the Work that God has given us to do. Jesus
Christ is returning in this generation! May we be found worthy
to escape the nuclear blitzkrieg about to strike, and to stand
before Christ when He returns to claim David's Throne in

And, here's some kosher food for thought:
Will an earthquake bring water to the deserts? Preparing the way
for God's Church to enter "Her Place?" (Isaiah 43:20).
