    Because at least one is "chosen," this may be that Zorobabel/Zerubbabel and "Jesus"/Joshua are a type of the two witnesses (Zechariah ; ; Haggai ,23). Other scholars seem to have tied also Zerubbabel and Joshua as types of the two witnesses (Jamieson, et al. . Zechariah desires to know what are the two olive trees.

These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth." Revelation The eleventh chapter of the book of Revelation describes the career of the two most powerful saints of the end times, who will appear in Jerusalem in the land of Israel and be empowered by God to speak out against the Antichrist.

Only in the Book of Zechariah, these two olive trees are identified with two historical figures, from whom we can glean some additional information concerning the Two Witnesses - Joshua the High Priest and Zerubbabel.

In identifying the Two Witnesses with Joshua the High Priest and Zerubbabel as detailed in the Book of Zechariah, the Apocalypse Author: Emmett O'regan. two olive trees Zechariah two olive “two olive trees” are said by the angel to represent “the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth” (Zechariah ), and are commonly identified by expositors as Joshua and Zerubbabel.

Any other references to Zerubbabel throughout this book are guesses or theories as to his significance. Zechariah –3 gives a vision that was had by Zechariah of a lampstand with a bowl on it.

Upon that are seven lamps, each with seven lips. There are two olive trees, one to. 5. The golden lampstand and two olive trees (): An angel shows Zechariah a golden lampstand being fed oil from two olive trees.

The two olive trees are symbolic of Zerubbabel the governor of Judah and Joshua the high priest. The golden lampstand represents the temple and temple-worshiping community. The two olive trees supply the oil for the lampstand through two pipes, as is made clear by Zechariah's question in v.

12, repeated for emphasis. The two trees seem to represent Joshua and Zerubbabel; and the lampstand, the people of God (as the seven lampstands in. Perhaps the two anointed ones (2 olive trees, 2 olive branches) are the two prophets Zechariah and Haggai (filled with God's Holy Spirit), who gave messages from God to encourage and uplift the hands of Zerubbabel and Joshua the High Priest in their endeavor to rebuild the temple.

The Future Prophecy, The Two Olive Trees. And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.” - Zechariah These are also described in Verses 11 to “Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side.

The Vision of the Lampstand and Olive Trees 10 For who has despised the day of small things. But these seven eyes of the LORD, which scan the whole earth, will rejoice when they see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel.” 11 Then I asked the angel, “What are the two olive trees on the right and left of the lampstand?” 12 And I questioned him further, “What are the two olive.

These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. two olive. Psalm But I am like a green olive tree in the house of God: I trust in the mercy of God for ever and ever. Jeremiah The LORD called thy name, A green olive tree, fair, and of goodly fruit: with the noise of a great tumult he hath kindled fire upon it, and the branches of it are.

The candlestick and the olive trees. Verses The fifth vision, the golden “candlestick” and the “two olive trees:” The work of God (the rebuilding of the temple), would be accomplished through God’s leaders, Joshua and Zerubbabel, who would be enabled to perform their tasks by the Spirit of God.

In his book Glory in Our Midst: A Biblical-Theological Reading of Zechariah's Night Visions, Dr. Meredith Kline notes on this passage: "The misunderstanding of the sons of oil as [simply] anointed ones has led to the common interpretation of the two as the royal and priestly offices, represented in Zechariah's day by Zerubbabel and Joshua.

But. Zechariah desires to know what are the two olive trees. Zerubbabel and Joshua, this prince and this priest, were endued with the gifts and graces of God's Spirit. They lived at the same time, and both were instruments in the work and service of God.

Christ's offices. “The two olive trees represent Joshua and Zerubbabel, whose witness in that day is the prototype of the two witnesses of [Revelation] Actually no human being can be the real source of the power that actuates God’s witness. In the Old Testament book of Zechariah we encounter two olive trees, but only one lampstand.

This implies the second lampstand was not present at this time. Therefore, it seems the two olive trees represent, 1) the Law 2) the Prophets while the two lampstands represent, 1) the Old Covenant Church 2) the New Testament Church.

it is questionable to say that the two olive trees and the two lampstands in Revelation chapter eleven represent the Holy Spirit. Maybe they do. One thing I can say for sure is that the olive trees in Zechariah chapter four do not symbolize the two witnesses in Revelation. "And I will give to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1, days, clothed in sackcloth.

These are the two olive trees and the two lamp-stands [candlesticks] before the Lord of the earth" (vs). This is absolute proof that the two olive trees that are noted in Zechariahare symbolic of the two witnesses.

29, /. Then said He, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the Lord of the whole earth." Zechariah{PK } In this vision the two olive trees which stand before God are represented as emptying the golden oil out of themselves through golden tubes into the bowl of the candlestick.

olive) oil (Joshua the high priest and Zerubbabel the prince of Judah), who stand before the Lord of the whole earth’” (Zechariah to 14). “I will give power to My two witnesses and they will prophesy for 1, days (3½ years). It is most in harmony with the scope of these visions (one of the great objects of [the vision] was to encourage the two heads, or leaders, of the restored remnant of the nation in their task of rebuilding the Temple) to regard the olive trees as representing Joshua the high priest, and Zerubbabel.

The olive trees represent these two men. They are feeding God’s Spirit into Israel and the task of rebuilding the Temple. This imagery is also used in Revelation chapter eleven of the two witnesses for the Lord during the Great Tribulation that bring forth God’s Spirit during that yet future troubled time (Revelation ).

For me, the reference to the two lampstands and olive trees are images lifted from the Old Testament Book of Zechariah. In this text, the “witnesses” are Zerubbabel, heir to the Davidic Kingdom of Judah, and Joshua the High Priest.
