The Office of the 2 Witnesses Revealed in the Past, Present and Future

(Written May 24-June 4, 2017. Spoken in sermon on Pentecost June 4, 2017. Article also released on Pentecost. Edited/Updated Oct.4, 2018.)

Please pray before reading this article. And then please read the entire article before making a final decision. Only by examining all of the evidence can you make a righteous and informed judgment.

There's a lot of people claiming to be the 2 witnesses. Who are the real 2 witnesses? Where/How/When will the true 2 witnesses be revealed?

Let's start by reading the scriptures concerning these 2 witnesses. I will explain as we read. Then we will discover previous 2 witness offices, the current office of the 2 witnesses and the future and final 2 witnesses.

Revelation 11
:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.
2 But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.
(There will be an end time invasion of Jerusalem at the beginning of the 3.5 year time of Great Tribulation. This is very clearly when the final two witnesses will begin their prophetic ministry, and not until then. Ezek.38, Dan.11:40-45, Luke 21:20 confirm this end time invasion of Israel.)
3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
("Clothed in sackcloth" sounds like it's symbolic for being humble. The 2 witnesses will minister in prophecy for 1,260 days which is another way of saying 42 months or 3.5 years. They do not minister worldwide in prophecy before the time of Great Tribulation or the Day of the LORD. However, I will prove in this article that there are additional sets of 2 witnesses before the appearing of the final 2 witnesses.)
4 These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
(This is symbolic language which refers to Zech.4 where Joshua & Zerubbabel were 2 witnesses who were a foreshadowing & forerunners of the final 2 witnesses. This symbolic language confirms the symbolic nature of the sackcloth in verse 3. Joshua & Zerubbabel were represented as being 2 olive trees because olive oil is a biblical symbol for the anointing of The Holy Spirit or Holy Ghost. They are also represented by 2 candlesticks which in Revelation 2-3 represent church congregations and church time eras. Joshua is not the same Joshua of the book of Exodus. This Joshua was the high priest of the temple rebuilt after the 70 years of Babylonian captivity. Zerubbabel was the appointed governor of the Judah province during the Persian Empire. So one was a religious leader and the other was the political leader. Since Revelation 11:4 points us to these 2 men, it's possible that the final 2 witnesses will also be a political leader & a religious leader who will be appointed to both become end time prophets. It's impossible that the 2 witnesses will be these same 2 Old Testament men resurrected or still alive. It is my opinion that Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu or some other high level Israeli government official could be one of the 2 witnesses. Zerubbabel was governor of Judah. Moses was a prince of Egypt. Esther was Queen of Persia. God has a history of using people in high levels of position.)
5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
(The enemies of the Creator/God will be literally killed by the words that come forth from the mouths of the final 2 witnesses. The word of God is a sharp two edged sword. Jer.5:14 proves that the "fire" is symbolic for words that come out of the mouth of the prophets. Note also that Jesus will literally kill people when He returns, via the sword of the words that come forth from his mouth. Rev.19:15,21 & 2 Thes.2:8 Isa.11:4; 30:31.
6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not 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.
7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.
(The fact that it says that they will finish their testimony proves that their ministry will not be any shorter than the promised 3.5 years of the time of Great Tribulation which will not be cut shorter than this promised amount of time that is repeatedly promised in scripture.)
8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
(Sodom & Egypt is symbolic language representing Jerusalem because the city has become wicked, full of homosexuality and Islam. The location of Jerusalem is key to identifying the true and final 2 witnesses. Anyone in any other location such as America cannot accurately claim to be the final and true 2 witnesses. They are described in the entire context as being in Jerusalem.)
9 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10 And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. (The 2 witnesses will be hated by the world.)
11 And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.
14 The second woe is past; and, behold, the third woe cometh quickly.
15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.
(The timing of the catching up and resurrection of the Saints/Church and the 2 witnesses is very clearly at the blowing of the 7th Trumpet of the 7th Seal. It's impossible for there to be any pre-tribulation rapture. Please click here to see more solid undeniable proof against the pre-tribulation rapture doctrine and you may also click here to learn about the 1290-1335 days of Daniel 12 that also confirm this.)

Did you read the above scriptures in your personal paperback/hardback bible today or just only on this website?
If only online, I encourage you to please open your bible and read these verses both on our website and in your bible. There is power in reading the real bible. Also, did you pray before beginning to read about this specific subject today? If not, I encourage you to take the time now to pray for understanding of truth.

Previous Sets/Forerunners/Foreshadowings

As we see in Rev.11:4 and Zech. 4, Joshua & Zerubbabel were a foreshadowing and forerunners of the final 2 witnesses of our end time. But there has been several others in different generations which is important to understand, because there is also a prophetic office of the 2 witnesses at the present time, before the final 2 witnesses arise. First, let's examine more proof there there are 2 witnesses in several time periods.

Moses & Aaron
The description given of the 2 witnesses in Revelation 11:5-6 match the ministries of Moses & Aaron. Moses brought the judgment of death upon people and he also turned water into blood. Moses was the leader of the two. Aaron was his personal assistant and brother. Moses was also the political civil leader/ruler whereas Aaron was the high priest. Therefore we see the same offices of Joshua & Zerubbabel in Moses & Aaron. Moses was truly the prophet of God of his time era. Aaron can be said to be the second prophet standing next to Moses, helping Moses deliver the prophetic warnings to Egypt. One or both of the current 2 men who hold the office of the 2 witnesses will also deliver warnings to Egypt via the internet.

The Scribes and Pharisees (2 Groups) in Moses' Seat
Matthew 23
:1 Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, 2 Saying The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat: 3 All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; But do not ye after their works: for they say, and do not.

Elijah & Elisha
Just like Moses & Aaron, the biblical description of the end time 2 witnesses match the prophetic ministries and miracles of Elijah & Elisha. Elisha was the apprentice and assistant to Elijah. But in this example, Elijah eventually passed the torch/baton to Elisha. Elijah had finished doing what he was ordained to do for the specific time and location where he was, and had to pass the ministry over to the next generation, to Elisha. The current office of the 2 witnesses will also pass the baton to the final 2 witnesses. It's like how presidents pass the office to the next incoming president. But notice also, that Elijah was at first in the office by himself, only one person, and then eventually passed it to Elisha, which again was only one man.

John the Baptist
Malachi 4:5-6 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Notice in the case of John the Baptist, that although he was in the office of prophet, and thus also in the same seat of the 2 witnesses, he was only one man. He was not part of a team of 2 men.

Luke 1
:13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. 14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. 15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb. 16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.

Matthew 3
:1 In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, 2 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. 3 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight. 4 And the same John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey. (Raiment of camel's hair is similar to wearing sackcloth.)

Matthew 11
:7 And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind?
8 But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings' houses.
(As contrasted by John & the final 2 witnesses.)
9 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet.
10 For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
11 Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.

John the baptizer was the prophet of God for his generation. He came to point to Jesus. He passed the baton to Jesus. His ministry foreshadows the end time 2 witnesses even though he was only one man, not two men. The scriptures are very clear that his ministry was in the same office as Elijah (and Elisha's).

Will the Final 2 Witnesses Be Moses & Elijah or Angels?

John was not Elijah reincarnated. He came in the spirit of Elijah but not in the same soul as Elijah. He came in the spirit of Elijah meaning that he was divinely called & ordained to fulfill the same office of prophet. Many people believe that the 2 witnesses will be Moses and Elijah or some other people who are already dead and buried. The bible says:

John 3:13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven.

It's impossible for dead people to manifest as the final 2 witnesses of the end time generation. Please click here for an accurate study of the holy scriptures concerning what happens when you die, and Heaven and Hell. The 2 witnesses will be 2 real human men who have already been born and who will be in Jerusalem and will conduct their worldwide prophetic ministry including miracles for a period of exactly 1,260 days, and not more and not less. These also will not be angels as some people claim. In Rev.11:7-15 these 2 men are murdered/martyred and their dead carcases lay in the street and then they are resurrected at the First Resurrection at the Last Trump. It's extremely clear these are 2 literal, physical, flesh & blood men, born in our generation.

Are The 2 Witnesses Symbolic of the Entire Church?

There are many people claiming/teaching that the account of the 2 witnesses in Revelation 11 is only symbolic of the entire church, and that there will not be literally just 2 men standing as the end time prophets of God. Although there is some symbolism in these verses that we have already discussed, but it's also extremely clear to anyone with even a little bit of discernment that there are also 2 literal, flesh & blood men who are literally in the streets of Jerusalem. The entire church (called out ones, Ekklesia) cannot fit in the streets of Jerusalem, and neither will the entire church be martyred & lay dead for 3.5 days. That's an insane false doctrine.

Current Office of 2 Witnesses until Final 2 Witnesses Take Over

I have already proven in this article that there are different sets/companies of 2 witnesses in different generations. This cannot be denied by anyone who takes the time to carefully examine the evidence presented above. So why would we think that there wouldn't continue to be more forerunners to the final 2 witnesses? Many people are now teaching that the offices of apostle and prophets stopped/ceased or was done away with after Paul. But that's very clearly a false teaching because Ephesians 4:11-16 and 1 Cor.12:28 tell us that Jesus sent apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers for the church. There is nothing in scripture, unless you twist and distort it, that teaches that these offices were removed or done away with. The church/ekklesia is still in much need of these administrative offices for the express purpose stated in these verses:

Ephesians 4
:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;
12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:
13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ:
(We have not yet attained this unity of doctrine! Therefore the purpose of these offices are not yet fulfilled.)
14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;
15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

Many people are searching for the 2 witnesses. I have also looked for them. And there are many claiming to be the 2 witnesses. But none of them pass the test. They must have true doctrine and true prophecy and be in Israel. There are no such men that are currently able to be found at the time of this writing in 2017-2018! But they are there, but they are not yet given their end time ministry and they will not be manifested until the very day that Jerusalem is invaded and not until then. So we can search for them day and night, and we will never find them until the invasion has occurred. Please click here to learn more about the invasion.

But Apostle Zimmerman (Pastor Zimmerman) of I Saw The Light Ministries, is currently in the seat/office of the 2 witnesses. I am not one of the 2 witnesses. I have never claimed to be one of the 2 witnesses and I will never claim to be. What this means is that I am currently the main apostle upon the Earth that is speaking and declaring the Word of God with true doctrine and true prophecy in the offices of apostle, prophet, pastor, evangelist and teacher. It is my responsibility to fulfill these administrative offices of love unto the true church until the final 2 witnesses of Revelation 11 are manifested to the world. My ministry is worldwide as will be the ministry of the 2 witnesses. You can search intensely for the 2 witnesses, or even just for 1 more international ministry in all of this world that has only true doctrine and/or true prophecy, and you will not find any other yet. I have sincerely searched & searched & searched in hopes that I would find another pastor, prophet, church of ministry proclaiming only the truth, as I do. And I honestly cannot find any other minister/pastor or ministry in all of this world on the internet that has sound, correct doctrine. Unfortunately, the whole world has been deceived! They are all in spiritual captivity to Assyrian & Babylonian doctrines!

Rev.12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole/entire world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

How Can Just One Man Be in the Office of the 2 Witnesses

The key is the singular word "office". I am not claiming to be two men, nor do I claim to have a partner with me in this office. The office is a official position. It is the seat of authority. John the Baptist was in that office. Then Jesus as well. Jesus did not have a partner, but He did have 12 disciples, which can be seen as a congregation that followed Him, not as equal partners. There is no recorded partner for John the Baptist. Since I am not claiming to actually be the 2 witnesses, but only in their office until they stand up, there is no requirement that I have a partner. I would love a partner, but there is no such requirement.

We can also look at the example of the office of the false prophet of Revelation 13. Most people assume that the false prophet is only one man. He the bible describes him as having 2 horns. In Daniel and Revelation 13, everyone agrees that 10 horns represent 10 kings. And everyone also agrees that the one horn of the Son of Perdition ("the antichrist") represents only 1 person. So why wouldn't 2 horns of the false prophet represent 2 beings/persons? The false prophet is actually 2 beings/persons, not just one. 2 horns = 2 persons. Click here for more information about the false prophets of Rev.13. Most people would say that I am not correct about the false prophet being 2 people because they have always assumed that he is only one person. The bible uses the singular word "prophet", and not the plural word "prophets". The confusion is the result of people's lack of understanding that the false prophet is an office containing 2 horns, or rather 2 people. Both Pope Benedict and Pope Francis are both in the office of Pope. Therefore, an office can contain either 1 or 2 people. The office of false prophet contains 2 persons. But if you have always assumed that the office of false prophet is only 1 person, then you should also be able to accept that the office that foreshadows the 2 witnesses can also be held by just 1 person. However, once the real and final 2 witnesses arise, they are required to be 2 men because of the detailed description of them as being 2 people.

Referring back to the note to Rev.11:4 at the top of this article, if Netanyahu or some other Israeli government official is 1 of the 2 witnesses, then the other 1 will be the 1 that has more of a religious ministry background, probably a man of the bloodline of Aaron and Levi. (Even though the Levitical priesthood is over, God still acknowledges the bloodlines as seen in the 144,000.) Therefore, in this scenario, only 1 of the 2 men would be able to be found currently in a ministry.

Proof of My Office

The eventual fulfillment of all of these major prophecies will confirm that I am truly a forerunner to the final 2 witnesses and that I am truly ordained by The Creator. But all glory to The Father in Jesus Name.

Elijah To Restore All Things
Malachi 4
:4 Remember ye the law of Moses my servant, which I commanded unto him in Horeb for all Israel, with the statutes and judgments.
5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:
6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.

Matthew 17
:11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.
12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.
13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

Although John the Baptist (person known for baptizing people) was the main fulfillment of Malachi 4, we know that John the Baptist was a type of the 2 witnesses office. The 2 witnesses will also restore all things during the Great Tribulation. But when we look upon the Earth today, there is no other ministry who fits this description better than I Saw The Light Ministries and Pastor Zimmerman. Surely, the 2 witnesses will build upon the foundation laid by I Saw The Light Ministries. This ministry has restored Jesus' name to the Old Testament. Surely, the 2 witnesses will adopt The Alpha & Omega Bible. During a time of famine of God's word, this ministry has also brought the truth of the 7th day, the holy days, the requirement of baptism and many huge prophecies to the public all across the world. One of the many goals of this ministry is also to restore manliness/masculinity and also to fight the radical leftist feminist movement & homosexuality. Therefore this ministry is also working at restoring the hearts of the children to the fathers.

Why I Make This Claim

I realize that most people will immediately reject my claim. Most people refuse to take a very honest and deep self examination of their selves and what they believe. They are comfortable in their traditional doctrinal errors of the world. I also realize that most people will falsely accuse me of pride & self exaltation. True prophets throughout time have always had to endure the same false accusations & persecution. But I cannot allow fear, or people's unbelief or false accusations to interfere with me fulfilling my calling. If a person is truly called of God to do something, Jesus will bring it to pass, even if we run. (Remember Jonah.) I choose not to run. I must embrace my calling. It is God that ordains. It is God that calls. It is God that chooses his messengers. The only thing that we do is answer "Yes, LORD, here I am." Then we go and fulfill our calling and must be obedient to the instructions. I am not trying to make a name for myself, become famous or rich. I am not seeking money. In fact, I am spending more money out of my own pocket for my ministry than what I will ever receive. I freely give literature and bibles to many people who ask. I evangelize the gospel, including the end time messages & warnings, to the world, without cost. I do not even use my full name most of the time. I just go by "Pastor Zimmerman". I do not feel a need to post my picture online like the majority of the ministers of the world. I have not named the ministry websites after myself.

So Why Then?

Ephesians 4
:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; 12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ: 14 That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; 15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ: 16 From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.

The followers of The Creator need direction. They need sound doctrine, correction and edification. There are many people actively searching for the 2 witnesses, because they are seeking the real authority of God concerning what is truly the truth about many topics of doctrine. They need teaching, instruction and clarity. I see the need and I hear the calling. I must tend to the sheep and point them to Jesus Christ. I must not deny the people the help that I can provide simply by sharing the truth. But I cannot fully do this without claiming my office. If you were working as a manager of a restaurant or other business, you could not adequately do your job without claiming your title and authority. What good is a manager who refuses to stand up boldly and say "yes I am the manager"? The same is also true in government. What good is a president of a nation that will not stand up and boldly say "I am your president"? As an apostle in the office of the 2 witnesses (but not actually the final 2 witnesses of Rev.11), I am a government ambassador of The Kingdom of Heaven. I cannot do my job without accepting who I am in Christ Jesus and accepting & exercising the authority allotted to me. I am claiming & declaring my office only so that I can fully help the church with true doctrine, true prophecy, clarity, instruction, edification & maturity, and to point to Jesus Christ and share with the world what He teaches us, including the prophetic warnings. Even Paul recognized the need to magnify his ministry in order to accomplish what was needed. Magnify is not the same as exalt. It's an entirely different Greek word.

Romans 11:13 KJV "For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:"
NASB "But I am speaking to you who are Gentiles. Inasmuch then as I am an apostle of Gentiles, I magnify my ministry,"

Yes there will be many who reject me. But it's not me that they reject, but my boss who is The Father. (John 15:18-25, Luke 10:16) Those people who reject me for the truth, would still reject me sooner or later, even if I did not make this claim. But by publicly proclaiming my office, I will also gain those who are truly seeking the truth the most. And when I walk in the steps that I am instructed to walk, the right people will be led to me, for me to point them to Jesus in the truth.

Matthew 10:27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.


Claim: The bible says that we are not to exalt ourselves nor call any man master, teacher, leader, rabbi, etc.
Answer: The following is Matt.23:6-12 in KJV, and then in NASB, then in The Alpha & Omega Bible. Then I will explain.

Matt.23:6-12 KJV
:6 And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. 8 But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren. 9 And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is you Father, which is in heaven. 10 Neither be ye called masters: for one is your Master, even Christ. 11 But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Matt.23:6-12 NASB
:6 They love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7 and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called Rabbi by men. 8 But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9 Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10 Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. 11 But the greatest among you shall be your servant. 12 Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.

Matt.23:6-12 AOB
(Jesus allowed people to call him "Rabbi" on many occasions, without correcting them, such as in Mark 10:51, thus showing that he did not deny that He was The Theos. He even says so in verse 10 below.)
10 DO NOT BE CALLED "LORD"; FOR ONE IS YOUR LORD: CHRIST. (The Messiah, God in the flesh).

Very clearly the context is that the Pharisees were exalting themselves as God in the flesh, which the Roman Catholic Popes also do & thus Jewish priests like to be called "Rabbi" which comes from the ancient Paleo-Hebrew word "Rab" which means "God". Catholic priests like to be called "Father" & the pope is called "Father" because he claims to be Christ on Earth. Therefore the context is Assyrian, Babylonian men who claim to be God & who are full of pride & want to be seen of men & they definitely exalt themselves. However, there isn't any verse in the bible that says that no one should ever be called "Apostle, prophet, evangelist or pastor". And if we translate it correctly, it also does not teach that we can't have human teachers. Acts 13:11, 1 Cor.12:28, Eph.4:11, 1 Tim.2;7, 2 Tim.1:11 & Titus 2:3 all make it very clear that we can & should have human teachers. The Holy Ghost of Jesus is the ultimate teacher but He ordains human teachers for the edification of the church. It is wrong to try to apply Matt.23:6-12 upon true ministers who are only embracing their calling. I am not saying that I am "God on Earth", or your master, or Rabbi, or Father. I am not saying that I am a great man or qualified man. I am not saying that I am perfect. I am not saying that I am the head of the church in the same way that Jesus is the head of the church. James 5 says that Elijah was just a normal human. But we know that he was called of God.

James 5:17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are (NASB says "with a nature like ours") , and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

I fully embrace that I am your brother, just human, just a normal man. But I must also embrace & exercise my administrative office of the church which is totally biblical. There must be administrative offices, and there must be someone to fill those offices. But I am not claiming to be the final 2 witnesses in Revelation 12.

I Will Pass The Baton to The Final 2 Witnesses

30 Days after we see the Strong Delusion (a fake coming of Jesus in the sky), I will step down from my worldwide ministry. (Hopefully my websites will stay online for as long as possible until the armies of Assad take them down.) But I will no longer be available personally, worldwide via daily newsletters, continual blog posts, weekly sermons, new videos, new articles, text message, email or phone calls. I will not be available worldwide via these ways any longer as of 30 days after the Strong Delusion. This is because the worldwide part of my ministry will be completed, even as the final 2 witnesses also have a set amount of time to prophesy worldwide, I also have only a set amount of time, but I do not know the number of days of my ministry. I only know that I will pass the baton 30 days after the Strong Delusion. Then the final 2 witnesses, who will be the real 2 witnesses of Revelation 11, will stand up and begin their 1,260 days until the blowing of the 7th Trumpet and the ushering in of the Wrath of God as we (and they) enter Heaven for the Marriage Supper of The Lamb of God: Jesus. However, just because I step aside from my worldwide ministry doesn't mean that I will quit on God. I will continue my work personally, one on one, with individuals that Jesus connects me with.

2 Timothy 4
:1 I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; 2 Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all long suffering and doctrine. 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; 4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. 5 But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 6 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Please take the time to carefully examine this website in prayer and fasting.

All of this in Jesus' Name.
