"THE TWO WITNESSES"

LESSON 3b

 

CONCLUSION AND SUMMARY

(To 3a)

We began this part of the lesson by examining identity of Two Witnesses, starting with the Book of Zechariah. They were identified as the governor Zerubbabel, and Joshua the High Priest. Therefore, adding to these the two names from Revelation 11, "Moses" and "Elijah", we now total four names as relating to the topic of the Two Witnesses and our Bible code (i.e. Zerubbabel, Joshua, Elijah, and Moses). Furthermore, we note that two of these names are the same as our Bible code  [i.e. Joshua (a variant of Yeshua), and Elijah]. These two names form the most obvious direct link with our bible code. However, what about the remaining two names?

Concerning the other two names, we observe that the call of Moses (which is one of these four names) is the direct subject of the passage from which our bible code is taken out. Moreover, Joshua (a variant of "Yeshua") son of Nun, is the one who extended Moses' labor by leading the Israelites into the Promised Land in his stead. Moses being disqualified, died early at the age of 120 years. Joshua extended and completed Moses labor. Hence, Joshua, in a way, is a type of Moses by extension.

In conclusion, therefore, I would suggest that the two Yeshua's (of our bible code), stand for Joshua, Moses helper, and Joshua the high priest of Zechariah 3. Together, they in turn are symbolic of Yeshua Messiah.

By the way, this means that the two "Yeshua's of the bible code have a slightly dual meaning, for in lesson one I said that they represent the first and second Persons of the Trinity. The difference being that this first interpretation emphasizes the Deity of Messiah whereas the second, His humanity. {Notice, that the scriptural basis for each of them are also derived from the very same theme of the Two Witnesses, for in the previous lesson we quoted from John the Baptist's (i.e. "Elijah") confession that, "He who comes after me has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me" (John 1:16 N.A.S.). It was quoted in order to show the Deity of Messiah.}

Lastly, we should look at Zerubbabel. He is one of the four essential names listed as belonging to the individuals directly to do with the identity of the "Two Witnesses". Though his name does not bear directly on our bible code, yet the meaning of his name and who he is, does. Zerubbabel is very similar to that of Moses in significance. Zerubbabel is a type of Prince and Judge like Moses (Ex. 2:14). Both were born in a foreign land (like Messiah) and both lead the people out from captivity or "Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified" (Revelation 11:8). [The names of Moses , (meaning; "to give birth", or, "to draw out," see Isaiah 63:11) and Zerubbabel ,("born in Babylon") bear striking similarity as well.]

The sum of all four of these names is Messiah Yeshua, the Lord. He is Prophet, Priest and King forever. Therefore, the bible code at the burning bush passage is a prophetic code foretelling who is the Messiah and when "the Messiah the Prince" (Daniel 9:25) would come. The "who" we have answered. Next, we will discuss the "when".

(See Lesson 3; The Two Witnesses.)

 

Appendix 

In a sense, Joshua is the answer to Moses question as to whom the Lord would send to go with him.

      "And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. And he turned again into the camp: but his servant Joshua, the son of Nun, a young man, departed not out of the tabernacle. And Moses said unto the LORD, See, thou sayest unto me, Bring up this people: and thou hast not let me know whom thou wilt send with me. Yet thou hast said, I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight. Now therefore, I pray thee, if I have found grace in thy sight, shew me now thy way, that I may know thee, that I may find grace in thy sight: and consider that this nation is thy people. And he said, My presence shall go with thee, and I will give thee rest." (Exodus 33:11-14)

This is an amazing passage indeed when compared to our present study. Moses has just fasted 40 days and is about to fast another 40 days. This agrees with the 40 + 40 years of his life so far. Alternatively, it also represents the 40 years he had just spent in the wilderness plus the next 40 years he would spend due to Israel's rebellion. {Incidentally, the only other persons who fasted 40 days were Elijah after his 1260 day drought ("3 1/2" according to James 5:17), and Yeshua Messiah before His (approximately) 1260 day ministry. Then, from Yeshua' resurrection to his ascension was another 40 days.}

In this Scripture (Ex. 33), Moses asks the Lord, "who spoke with him face to face," to show him His glory. This "glory" is none other than the glory of God in the face of Yeshua Messiah. Yeshua (Yeshua) is "the Angel of His presence" (Isaiah 63:9) who appeared at the burning bush and went before them in the cloud and fiery pillar. Yeshua ("Yeshua") is He before whom Moses and Joshua (Yeshua), took off their "sandals" for it was "Holy Ground" (Exodus 3:5, Joshua 5:15). Furthermore, this is why John the Baptist, who came "in the power of Elijah" said, "I am not worthy to stoop down and untie His sandals" (Mark 1:7).

There are yet more subtle parallels in Exodus 33, which shed light on the "Two Witnesses". The Hebrew for the name John means to "stoop down to grace a superior." Compare this with Mark 1:7, just quoted, and with Exodus 33:12, "I know thee by name, and thou hast also found grace in my sight." The word "grace" (which is repeated three times for emphasis in chapter 33), is related to the same word for the name name John.

God said to Moses concerning Yeshua Messiah:

      "I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him." (Deut. 18:18,19).
