But who are the two anointed ones? (video)

Postby Biblegate » Sun Feb 28, 2016 11:34 pm

In Zechariah 4:11, the Prophet asks the angel, "What are the two olive trees that are dripping oil?" The angel informs him (as if the answer were obvious), "These are the two anointed ones, who stand beside the Lord of the whole earth.”

Well, that certainly makes it clear! But, ummmm, who are the two anointed ones?

Here is the link to Steve Gregg's lecture on Zechariah chapters 3 & 4, which contains, among other topics, a discussion about those mysterious trees and anointed ones.

I don't know the answer, but some of the early Christians said they would be Enoch and Elijah. These early Christians believed that Enoch and Elijah never physically died, and that God continued to preserve their bodies alive, and will continue to do so until they are sent to the earth as these two witnesses. At that time, they will be killed by Antichrist (the Beast) and be raised to life again after three and a half days. (Rev 11:3-12)

Man judges a person by his past deeds, and administers penalties for his wrongdoing. God judges a person by his present character, and disciplines him that he may become righteous.
