Context Readings

The Two Witnesses

5 And if anyone should want to hurt them, fire comes out of their mouths and burns up their enemies. If anyone wants to hurt them, he must be killed in this manner. 6 These witnesses have authority to close the heavens in order to keep rain from falling while they are prophesying. They also have authority to turn bodies of water into blood and to strike the earth with any plague, as often as they desire. 7 When they have finished their testimony, the beast that comes up from the bottomless pit will wage war against them, conquer them, and kill them.
