Great fear fell
This Sunday we’ll be in Revelation 11:1-14, looking at the account of the two witnesses who will prophesy just prior to the sounding of the 7th trumpet. While they fall victim to their persecutors, the effect of their preaching is the widespread conversion of ethnic Jews, who from the 1st Century, had rejected their Messiah, Jesus. These two witnesses lay out a series of key principles for every Christian. We are all charged with being witnesses for Christ, and as the last days continue on, our task remains as vital as ever.

Text: Revelation 11:1-14
November 6, 2022
I solemnly affirm that the evidence to be given by me shall be the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
Canada Evidence Act
As a witness of Jesus, I know that...
...there is a dividing line between those who are inside and those who are outside of God’s kingdom (v. 1-2)
...and I have been empowered by the Holy Spirit to appeal to those outside to turn to Christ (v. 3-6)
Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord of hosts. Zechariah 4:6
...fully aware that I will be fiercely opposed by those who despise the gospel (11:7-10)
The language of the unsaved is, ‘We will not have this Man to reign over us’ (Luke 19:14). The attitude of the Christian is, ‘For to me to live is Christ’ (Philippians 1:21) to honour, please, and serve Him.
Arthur Pink, The Cross and Self
...but also, that God, in the end, will bring about the conversion of many for his own glory (11:11-14)
A partial hardening has come upon Israel, until the fullness of the Gentiles has come in. And in this way all Israel will be saved, as it is written, “The Deliverer will come from Zion, he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”; “and this will be my covenant with them when I take away their sins.”
