(1) ... The Two End-time Witnesses - Their Message of "VALLEY OF DECISION"

The 18the Chapter of Revelation records a vision that John the Apostle received from the Lord. In this vision from the Lord, John saw an Angel of the Lord who cried out with a mighty and loud voice, saying, "Babylon the Great is fallen, is fallen, and has become the habitation of demons, and every foul Spirit, and of every kind of evil Spirit."

What is "Babylon the Great?" A thorough examination of the Scriptures reveal that "Babylon the Great" is a mixture of a worldly and religious system. However, it is clear that the main focus of the message of the Angel of the Lord is being put on the "Religious Spiritual" aspects of "Babylon the Great."

The 17th Chapter of Revelation tells us that "Babylon the Great" is the "Mother of Harlots." The religious system of "Babylon the Great" is the main focus of what the Angel of the Lord is declaring. Well, obviously a mother is a woman who has children. This is clearly the Catholic Church who thinks of herself as the "Mother Church," and considers herself as the "Mother of the Protestant Churches" which were formed as the result of people leaving the Catholic Church which eventually led to the formation of the Protestant Churches with it's different denominations.

Notice the wording "Mother of Harlots." Not only is the Catholic Church the "Spiritual Mother Harlot," but she is called the "Mother of Harlots" because her daughters are also "Spiritual Harlots" which has already been explained in this article as clearly being the Protestant Churches. A "harlot" is not faithful. The Christian Institutional Churches today have not remained faithful to Biblical sound doctrines, but have gone after many man-made doctrines, which makes them "Spiritual Harlots."

The Angel of the Lord cries out that "Babylon the Great" is fallen, is fallen. This message of the Angel of the Lord is not about a great city that has been destroyed. Otherwise, the wording would have been phrased "Babylon the Great" is destroyed, is in ruins. In the context of this Passage of Scripture, the word "fallen" means defection from the truth, to abandon sound doctrine, to fall away from sound doctrine. (2nd Timothy 4:3 - For the time will come when people will not listen to sound doctrine).

This message from the Angel of the Lord is directed to the Christian Church. Only the Christian Church can fall away, abandon, defect from God's truth. The Angel of the Lord repeats the word "fallen" to emphasize just how far the Christian Institutional Church has "fallen away" from the Biblical sound doctrines of God's truth.

The Christian Institutional Church that exists today has become "doctrinally corrupt." This is why that there is such urgency in the Angel's voice when imploring God's people to come out of her.

Also, take notice that the Angel of the Lord cries out that "Babylon the Great" has BECOME a habitation of demons, and of every foul Spirit, and of every kind of evil Spirit. Over time, the Spiritual condition of the Christian Institutional Church has become worse and worse, to the point that the Lord is saying "enough is enough, it is time for My people to wake up to the realization of just how far the Christian Institutional Churches have "fallen away" from Biblical sound doctrines." (1st Peter 4:17 - Judgment must begin at the house of God).

Right after the Angel of the Lord makes the proclamation about "Babylon the Great," John hears another voice from Heaven, saying, "Come out of her My People, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her judgments."

Notice the wording "Come out of her My people." The call is for God's people to come out of the Apostate Christian Institutional Church which has fallen away from Biblical sound doctrine. This call of God to His people will be the very heart of the message of the "two end-time witnesses." It will be the "VALLEY OF DECISION" for multitudes of Christians.

Most Christians today are not aware of the fact that the Christian Institutional Churches that they are attending, have become Apostate in a number of man-made doctrines which err greatly from sound Biblical doctrines. I am not talking about "minor doctrines." I am talking about "major doctrines."

The 3rd Chapter of Revelation speaks about the Church in Sardis in John's day which had a name for being Spiritually alive, but the Lord tells them that they are not Spiritually alive, but they are Spiritually dead. That certainly describes the Spiritual condition of the Christian Institutional Churches today.

The very popular belief of the Church today is the belief that it will be the antichrist that causes a "great falling away" during the tribulation period at the end of this Age.

However, the 2nd Chapter of 2nd Thessalonians tells us that there shall come a falling away "FIRST," and then the antichrist will be revealed. This "falling away" of the Christian Institutional Church from sound Biblical doctrine, began centuries ago.

The "two end-time witnesses" will be crying out with a mighty and loud voice for God's people to come out of the "Spiritual Harlot System" of the Christian institutional Church.

Just as God used Moses to bring out the children of Israel from under the bondage of Egypt, so will God use the "two end-time witnesses" in bringing out His people from under the bondage of the "Spiritual Harlot System" of the Christian Institutional Church. This will be accomplished through their message of truth with clarity from God's Written Word. 

JESUS said that if we take heed to "His truth," that "His truth" will set us free.
