Daily Bible Reading: Revelation 11
Verse of the Day: Revelation 11:10 – “And they that dwell on the earth rejoice over them, and make merry; and they shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwell on the earth.”
In our reading today we come across two men who are only identified as the Two Witnesses. We know very little for certain about them, and much speculation has arisen over their identification. Moses, Elijah, Enoch, John the Baptist are various ideas presented. God has chosen not to disclose their identity, so we waste a lot of time trying to discern them.
In our verse today, we see the depravity of people on earth at this time. They have heard the prophetic warnings issuing from these two, and they seek to destroy the messengers. When they succeed, they do not allow a proper burial, but instead they have a time of celebration, almost like our Christmas parties. They are astonished 3 days later when they are resurrected and raptured.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, I pray for those who refuse to listen and believe God’s message.
