This Revelation Timeline Decoded post is about the Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 and the significance of Reformation Day.
The Two Witnesses of Revelation 11 are the SCRIPTURES and the SAINTS, which testify about salvation through Messiah.
And they proclaim that the Popes of Rome fulfill Bible prophecy as the little horn of Daniel 7, the son of perdition of 2 Thessalonians 2, and the antichrist beast of Revelation who leads the harlot church of Rome.
Many of the saints who testified against the antichrist beast Popes paid for their witness with their blood.
During the Dark Ages, the Popes banned and burned the Scriptures and killed millions of saints. They were so effective, that in May 1514, they proclaimed that all of Christendom was under their control, and that there were no witnesses left against the Popes, as they were ‘as good as dead.’
And for 3 1/2 years there was no witness against the antichrist beast Popes. The saints were so beaten down, that they stayed silent.
But during this time the Spirit had Catholic monk Martin Luther read the Scriptures, and he compared what the Popes teach against the Word, and he found out that the Roman Catholic Church is an apostate church, and not part of the true assembly of Messiah’s saints.
This led to Luther posting his 95 Thesis on the door of the church of Wittenberg on October 31, 1517; which is exactly 3 1/2 years after the Popes proclaimed that the witnesses against them were dead.
This event sparked the Protestant Reformation and the saints came back to life and took control of countries which the Popes had misled with their false gospel. Millions of people were redeemed for the kingdom and came out of the harlot church of Rome.
The Reformers translated the Scriptures into English and other languages, and with the timely advent of the printing press, the little book of Revelation 10, the printed Bible, was spread around the world, witnessing about the true Gospel and exposing the Popes of Rome as false prophets.
Don’t believe the enemy’s deception about the Two Witnesses being two men in the end times. The SCRIPTURES and the SAINTS witnessed against the antichrist beast Popes during their 1,260-year reign of power from 538-1798 AD.
We have the same calling today, to witness against the antichrist beast Popes, to expose their false teachings, so that the captives can be set free.
