There are many â€śLone Ranger Christiansâ€ť scattered throughout the world because of the deplorable religious institutions that foist themselves off as â€śthe one true churchâ€ť.
We would love to fellowship with our true brothers and sisters in Christ, but alas, some of us live in an area where there is no Gospel and no Jesus Christ of the Bible to be found..just saying.đźĄ€
Something to Consider The Revelation frequently draws on visual images found in the OT prophets and TheÂ twoÂ witnesses in Rev 11Â are no different. They can be spoken of in Zech 4.Â Â
Rev 11:3-4Â And I will giveÂ powerÂ unto myÂ two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundredÂ andÂ threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These areÂ the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
Zech 4:3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the rightÂ sideÂ of the bowl, and the other upon the leftÂ sideÂ thereof.
Zech 4:11 Then answered I, and said unto him, WhatÂ areÂ these two olive trees upon the rightÂ sideÂ of the candlestick and upon the leftÂ sideÂ thereof?
Zech 4:14 Then said he, TheseÂ areÂ the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth.
There are too many references found in the prophets to attempt to interpret the Revelation stand alone (post 96AD) without the context of the referenced prophets.
God inspired John to write what he did and had a purpose in drawing on the prophets. It is for us to learn that purpose if we hope to properly interpret the Revelation.
Great Sermon! Pastor Tippins along with James Guyo, Scott Price, Ken Wimer and a handful of other God called teachers faithfully expounds the gospel of free and sovereign grace.
To God be all the glory for these men who call Godâ€™s elect from darkness and self-righteousness.
Great Sermon! Brother Tippins, thank you for this teaching, I needed to hear this.
I lost partial sight in one of my eyes a few years ago and the possibility of my other eye loosing sight is a real gripping concern that I live with, so I can relate to your fear of failing eyesight.
Will remember you in prayer and thank you for always glorifying our precious Savior and proclaiming without compromise His Sovereign Grace Gospel.
Excellent Your teachings in the gospel of John are some of the most gospel centered and balanced expositions that I have had the blessing of hearing.
You have surely been taught by the Spirit of God.Praise Him for raising up a few faithful preachers in these dark times.
