Those anointed to serve the Lord from Zion
It is important to be aware of those that are anointed by The Living God and who will go forth in Spirit, preparing the way for Jesus Christ. This is to have the knowledge to differentiate between those who are truly anointed by God and those who will come to draw people to themselves or to the enemy. We live at the end of age, thus, the true church MUST confirm everything as written in Scriptures. In Biblical prophecy, the servant from the East and the two witnesses are mentioned to come before the time of wrath begins. The woman of Revelation 12 will come in towards the time of wrath and her purpose will be to signal the church and Israel to the appointed times by the Lord.
The Servant from the East
The Servant from the East is called in righteousness to serve the Living God. This is the servant sent to complete the scriptures in Isaiah 61 from where Jesus Christ stopped reading. When Jesus Christ read Isaiah 61, He only read what was to be fulfilled at that time.
Luke 4: 16-20 16 He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. He stood up to read, 17 and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
20 Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him. 21 He began by saying to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”
The remaining verses in Isaiah were not fulfilled at Jesus Christ’s coming but are about to be fulfilled as we near the end of this age. The fulfillment of these chapter is part of the events that will happen when Zion, the sons of the Living God are revealed at the start of the re-unsealing of the 7 seals. Through the servant from the East, The Lord will fulfill the rest of Isaiah 61 for the people of Zion as it was written;
Isaiah 61 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn, 3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.
This servant will bear good news for the church and Israel, as well as warnings of the times that are coming. This servant is chosen and called in Righteousness (in Jesus Christ Who is our righteousness) and will be revealed by the Lord to the church at the appointed time. She is called as watchman for the people of The Living God and so it was written;
Isaiah 52:7 How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news,
who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings,
who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”
8 Listen! Your watchmen lift up their voices; together they shout for joy.
When the LORD returns to Zion, they will see it with their own eyes.
9 Burst into songs of joy together, you ruins of Jerusalem,
for the LORD has comforted his people, he has redeemed Jerusalem.
This servant is mentioned in the prophetic writings,
Isaiah 41 “Be silent before me, you islands! Let the nations renew their strength!
Let them come forward and speak; let us meet together at the place of judgment.
2 “Who has stirred up one from the east, calling him in righteousness to his service?
He hands nations over to him and subdues kings before him.
He turns them to dust with his sword, to windblown chaff with his bow.
3 He pursues them and moves on unscathed, by a path his feet have not traveled before.
9 I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you.
I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
10 So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.
11 “All who rage against you will surely be ashamed and disgraced;
those who oppose you will be as nothing and perish.
12 Though you search for your enemies, you will not find them.
Those who wage war against you will be as nothing at all.
13 For I am the LORD your God who takes hold of your right hand
and says to you, do not fear; I will help you.
15 “See, I will make you into a threshing sledge, new and sharp, with many teeth.
You will thresh the mountains and crush them, and reduce the hills to chaff.
16 You will winnow them, the wind will pick them up, and a gale will blow them away.
But you will rejoice in the LORD and glory in the Holy One of Israel.
In Isaiah 41:25, scripture mentions the one from the east and the one from the north. The one from the East comes in the name of God and is chosen to do God’s will in righteousness. It’s the servant of God who will be a witness of Jesus Christ, returning the hearts of the people to God. The servant from the East rises at the first seal to teach in Truth God’s Word. The One from the North is the anti-Christ, who will fulfill God’s wrath upon the earth and carry out God’s purpose against the Babylonians.
Isaiah 41:25 “I have stirred up one from the north, and he comes—
one from the rising sun who calls on my name.
He treads on rulers as if they were mortar,
as if he were a potter treading the clay.
26 Who told of this from the beginning, so we could know,
or beforehand, so we could say, ‘He was right’?
No one told of this, no one foretold it, no one heard any words from you.
27 I was the first to tell Zion, ‘Look, here they are!’
I gave to Jerusalem a messenger of good news.
Isaiah 46 11 From the east I summon a bird of prey;
from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that I will bring about;
what I have planned, that I will do.
God’s purposes for the One from the East
The Servant from East will be a covenant for the people and a light for the gentiles
Isaiah 42 5 This is what God the LORD says the Creator of the heavens, who stretches them out, who spreads out the earth with all that springs from it, who gives breath to its people,
and life to those who walk on it:
6 “I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the Gentiles, 7 to open eyes that are blind,
to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.
8 “I am the LORD; that is my name! I will not yield my glory to another or my praise to idols.
9 See, the former things have taken place, and new things I declare;
before they spring into being I announce them to you.”
Isaiah 59 21 “As for me, this is my covenant with them,” says the LORD. “My Spirit, who is on you, will not depart from you, and my words that I have put in your mouth will always be on your lips, on the lips of your children and on the lips of their descendants—from this time on and forever,” says the LORD.
Isaiah 51 16 I have put my words in your mouth and covered you with the shadow of my hand—I who set the heavens in place, who laid the foundations of the earth,
and who say to Zion, ‘You are my people.’”
A light for the gentiles and to bring back the Israelites to God
Isaiah 62 For Zion’s sake I will not keep silent, for Jerusalem’s sake I will not remain quiet,
till her vindication shines out like the dawn, her salvation like a blazing torch.
Isaiah 454 For the sake of Jacob my servant, of Israel my chosen, I summon you by name
and bestow on you a title of honor, though you do not acknowledge me.
5 I am the LORD, and there is no other; apart from me there is no God.
I will strengthen you, though you have not acknowledged me,
6 so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting
people may know there is none besides me.
I am the LORD, and there is no other. 7 I form the light and create darkness,
I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the LORD, do all these things.
8 “You heavens above, rain down my righteousness; let the clouds shower it down.
Let the earth open wide, let salvation spring up, let righteousness flourish with it;
I, the LORD, have created it.
Isaiah 49 6 he says: “It is too small a thing for you to be my servant
to restore the tribes of Jacob and bring back those of Israel I have kept.
I will also make you a light for the Gentiles,
that my salvation may reach to the ends of the earth.”
Called to set God’s exiles free, declare the year of the Lord’s favor and Time of God’s vengeance
Isaiah 49 8 This is what the LORD says: “In the time of my favor I will answer you,
and in the day of salvation I will help you; I will keep you and will make you
to be a covenant for the people, to restore the land
and to reassign its desolate inheritances,
9 to say to the captives, ‘Come out,’ and to those in darkness, ‘Be free!’
To declare the Year of the LORD’s Favor to Zion
Isaiah 61 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2 to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor
To proclaim the day of vengeance of our God
Isaiah 61 2 .. and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,
3 and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
Isaiah 61 10 I delight greatly in the LORD; my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels
The two witnesses
These are the two that were prophesied about in Zechariah and Revelation. The two witnesses are likely to have revelations of the seven thunders in Revelation. They will prophecy in Jerusalem for three and half years. before the false prophet, the beast from the Abyss attacks them and kills them. Their death will be at the beginning of the time of wrath and will occur just after the signs in Revelation 12 have been shown in the sky. Their bodies will lie in the city of Jerusalem for three and half days, in that time, the inhabitants of the earth will refuse them burial and will celebrate their death because the two witnesses will have the power to perform all kinds of miracles while they are prophesying. the three and half days their bodies lie in the public square signify the time Israel and the church will go through the great tribulation. After three and half days, they will rise to live and be taken up to heaven. At that time, there will be a great earthquake in Jerusalem that will divide the city and kill seven thousand people. Their account is recorded;
Zechariah 4: Then the angel who talked with me returned and woke me up, like someone awakened from sleep. 2 He asked me, “What do you see?”
I answered, “I see a solid gold lamp stand with a bowl at the top and seven lamps on it, with seven channels to the lamps. 3 Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.”
The seven lamps are the seven churches
Revelation 1 12 I turned around to see the voice that was speaking to me. And when I turned I saw seven golden lamp stands, 13 and among the lamp stands was someone like a son of man, dressed in a robe reaching down to his feet and with a golden sash around his chest.14 The hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. 15 His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. 16 In his right hand he held seven stars, and coming out of his mouth was a sharp, double-edged sword. His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance.
19 “Write, therefore, what you have seen, what is now and what will take place later. 20 The mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right hand and of the seven golden lamp stands is this: The seven stars are the angels[e] of the seven churches, and the seven lamp stands are the seven churches.
Zechariah 4: I answered, “I see a solid gold lamp stand with a bowl at the top and seven lamps on it, with seven channels to the lamps. 3 Also there are two olive trees by it, one on the right of the bowl and the other on its left.”
11 Then I asked the angel, “What are these two olive trees on the right and the left of the lamp stand?”12 Again I asked him, “What are these two olive branches beside the two gold pipes that pour out golden oil?
14… “These are the two who are anointed to serve the Lord of all the earth.”
The message of the two witnesses is likely to include the revelations of the seven thunders that are pronounced before the seven plagues are poured on the anti-Christ, his government and subjects. The revealing of the seven thunders messages will make the events at the end of age clearer so that God’s people are prepared and ready for the time of persecution that will come in as the two witnesses in Jerusalem are killed. The seven thunders are recorded in:
The sealed seven thunders before the seven plagues
Revelation 10 Then I saw another mighty angel coming down from heaven. He was robed in a cloud, with a rainbow above his head; his face was like the sun, and his legs were like fiery pillars. 2 He was holding a little scroll, which lay open in his hand. He planted his right foot on the sea and his left foot on the land, 3 and he gave a loud shout like the roar of a lion. When he shouted, the voices of the seven thunders spoke. 4 And when the seven thunders spoke, I was about to write; but I heard a voice from heaven say, “Seal up what the seven thunders have said and do not write it down.”
5 Then the angel I had seen standing on the sea and on the land raised his right hand to heaven. 6 And he swore by him who lives for ever and ever, who created the heavens and all that is in them, the earth and all that is in it, and the sea and all that is in it, and said, “There will be no more delay! 7 But in the days when the seventh angel is about to sound his trumpet, the mystery of God will be accomplished, just as he announced to his servants the prophets.”
The two witnesses account in Revelation 11:1-14
I was given a reed like a measuring rod and was told, “Go and measure the temple of God and the altar, with its worshipers. 2 But exclude the outer court; do not measure it, because it has been given to the Gentiles. They will trample on the holy city for 42 months. 3 And I will appoint my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days, clothed in sackcloth.” 4 They are “the two olive trees” and the two lamp stands, and “they stand before the Lord of the earth.” 5 If anyone tries to harm them, fire comes from their mouths and devours their enemies. This is how anyone who wants to harm them must die. 6 They have power to shut up the heavens so that it will not rain during the time they are prophesying; and they have power to turn the waters into blood and to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they want.
7 Now when they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the Abyss will attack them, and overpower and kill them. 8 Their bodies will lie in the public square of the great city—which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt—where also their Lord was crucified. 9 For three and a half days some from every people, tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial. 10 The inhabitants of the earth will gloat over them and will celebrate by sending each other gifts, because these two prophets had tormented those who live on the earth.
11 But after the three and a half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and terror struck those who saw them. 12 Then they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud, while their enemies looked on.
13 At that very hour there was a severe earthquake and a tenth of the city collapsed. Seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the survivors were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.
The woman of Revelation 12 who bears the future King
Jeremiah 4:3 1I hear a cry as of a woman in labor, a groan as of one bearing her first child—
the cry of Daughter Zion gasping for breath, stretching out her hands and saying,
“Alas! I am fainting; my life is given over to murderers.”
She will be from Zion and bear the child who will be the future king David ruling from Zion. She The birth of her child will be a sign for Israel that there redemption is close. She will be a sign to the people that the time of wrath is about to start. She is appointed for the church and Israel to help them understand the times of the end. By the time she gives birth, the full number of the gentiles will have come in, and Israel will go into a time of lamentation soon after
Micah 5:33 Therefore Israel will be abandoned
until the time when she who is in labor bears a son,
and the rest of his brothers return to join the Israelites
Isaiah asked how long the Israelites will be abandoned;
Isaiah 6 11 Then I said, “For how long, Lord?” And he answered: “Until the cities lie ruined and without inhabitant, until the houses are left deserted and the fields ruined and ravaged, 12 until the Lord has sent everyone far away and the land is utterly forsaken.
By the time the sign of her is given up in the sky, the child in Revelation 12 would already be born. She will be going through a time of persecution when she will pray to God for help. God will answer hr by the sign in the sky and her son will be snatched up to God’s throne. Her prayer at that time,
Psalms 86:16-1716 Turn to me and be gracious to me; give your strength to your servant, and save the son of your maidservant.17 Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
Revelation 12:1-6 A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.2 She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.3 Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born. 5 She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. 6 The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
[The child she bears is the future king of Israel through Whom Jesus Christ will rule all nations with an iron scepter. This child is the extension of Jesus Christ’s rule as written in Psalms 110. He will be born by man but raised by God as prophesied in Jeremiah and the child King who will rule in the 1000 year period when the covenant between the beasts of the earth and man is established as written in Isaiah. Read more on this child in ‘Revelation 12, The Woman and the Dragon’.]
