    Ge.2:14 "Euphrates" (2 of 2)

    Jacob after seeing the vision called the windows as the gate of heaven. "this is none other but the house of God, and this is the gate of heaven."(Ge.28:17) Where shall we look for its match on the earth? "And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them." (Re.11:7). What are the two witnesses? Men or man and angel or the word of God (The idea of sending disciples 'two by two' before the face of Jesus Christ is implied here.) Of them St Paul annotates," For the mystery of iniquity doth already work: only he who now letteth will let, until he be taken out of the way./And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming."(2 The.2:8)

    This takes us to the 'pit' (introduced by Isaiah 51:1 "Hearken to me, ye that follow after righteousness, ye that seek the Lord: look unto the rock whence ye are hewn, and to the hole of the pit whence ye are digged." (To be continued)
