5 And [kai] if any man [ei tis] [autos] will [thelo] hurt [adikeo] them, [autos] fire [pur] proceedeth [ekporeuomai] out of [ek] their [autos] mouth, [stoma] and [kai] devoureth [katesthio] their [autos] enemies: [echthros] and [kai] if any man [ei tis] will [thelo] hurt [adikeo] them, [autos] he must [dei] in this manner [houto] be killed. [apokteino] KJV-Interlinear



5 And if anyone desires to harm them, fire proceeds out of their mouth and devours their enemies; and if anyone would desire to harm them, in this manner he must be killed. NASB



Sometimes the Bible speaks in terms of symbolism, and sometimes it speaks in terms that are quite literal. The phrase, fire proceeds out of their mouth, can be viewed both ways here.


God has used fire to incinerate His enemies in many situations, Lev 10:2; Num 11:1; 16:35; Ps 106:17-18.


And these two witnesses will have sufficient powers and abilities to prevent anyone from stopping their full ministry during the entire 1260 days that God has given to them.


But note, this verse states clearly that anyone who tries to bring them harm or even if anyone wants them harmed, then the same wish or attempt intended for the two witnesses will go right back on the perpetrator.


Be careful what you wish for!


Note something very subtle here. The anti-christ has virtually unlimited power.  He could easily order the two witnesses killed, but he does not. Why do you suppose that the order and attempts to kill them, does not come from him, but from others?


Some will know the prophecies, such as this one, but most folks will not know of it.  Those underlings who do not know of this prophecy of protection, will try to eliminate the two witnesses, but only to their own surprise and demise.


When we get to the Armageddon study, we will see that the prophecies of the defeat of the southern power, is known by the southern leadership, but they will try to beat the odds anyway.


So, if any person attacks the two, they will be met with fire. End of attack.


If any person wants them killed or issues an order to others to have them killed, in other words, then they will die by the same means as their order.


God knows the orders and attempts that will be made. We do not. But, if you could be a little fly on the wall to listen in, then you would probably hear some of the most interesting conversations ever.


‘Someone needs to do something. But what of the prophecy? Bah! Words that mean nothing. Do it.’
