Ha! I was just reading about the two witnesses to my husband this weekend.
The olive trees that are the fuel for the seven lamps. The seven lamps of the seven churches.
Are they the same olive trees that had branches broken off so we could be grafted in? I always though of the olive tree being our spiritual Family tree. Or are they two people?
Yesterday we were driving down to the valley - which stresses me out, the traffic, the zillion crazy people, the idea of being stuck there if we did have an earthquake. And I just thought how awful it would be to get taken out of the game so close to the end.

According to Zech 4, the 2 olive trees are "the 2 Anointed Ones, who stand by the Lord of the whole Earth".....which...sound a lot like the 2 Witnesses in Revelation to me.

And then Zech 5 talks about a "Woman"..and it mentions Bavel...which led me again to Rev.

*Why* this came up today I don't know - right now I'm following the "let the Bible fall open" approach to my readings. :grin: I hadn't read Zechariah in a long time, so this was interesting!
