During the seven year Tribulation period there will be two men who are given the assignment by God to be witnesses for Him. It is during the last 3 1/2 years when all believers who attempt to witness will be martyred by having their heads cut off so God gives them extraordinary powers to resist any who would try and silence them. Their powers are amazing and sound like a super heroes movie. I was thinking that if I had that kind of power I would go to Washington DC and witness and clean up that place.
And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth.” These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth. And if anyone wants to harm them, fire flows out of their mouth and devours their enemies; so if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this way. These have the power to shut up the sky, so that rain will not fall during the days of their prophesying; and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood, and to strike the earth with every plague, as often as they desire.
But I don’t have that power but I do have power. Acts 1:8 also makes a promise to us, “but you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be My witnesses both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and even to the remotest part of the earth.”
The power we have now is that God will provide opportunities, open doors, divine appointments, but I tend to not look for them because I get so distracted by life and miss them. God will give me the wisdom to say the right words at the right time, but I have to open my mouth. And God will give me the boldness to open my mouth, but I need to be following Him as His disciple so He can make me a fisher of men.
