Verse 3 (NASB)
Home New International Version God's WordTM 中文 Español Deutsch
3. "And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth."
These two witnesses are accusing the beast (chapters 13-19) of apostacy and desecration of the temple, earth, and human soul. That this verse personalizes the two witnesses with "MY" two witnesses indicates that this authority comes straight from the throne. God always has had witnesses, whether human or His creation (Acts 14:16-17).
