Two Olive Trees and He that Overcometh

7. The Second Olive Tree is inviting you to ‘under his shadow’

Two Olive Trees in the Revelation

In the Bible, there are four beings foretold by God: Jesus, John the Baptist, and Two Olive Trees. In Chapter 11 of Revelation, there is a scene that an angel talks to John the Apostle about two olive trees. The power which they have when in earth is described as follows: “These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will” (Revelation 11:4~6):

4. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
5. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

These two powers look like what Moses and Elias had when in earth: Moses had power over waters to turn them to blood, and Elias had power to shut heaven, not to rain. Considering this scene, someone often insists. “Therefore, two olive trees mean Moses and Elias.” But the Revelation was given to John the Apostle, showing things which must shortly come to pass. So, two olive trees could not be Moses and Elias, because they had already passed away when John the Apostle received the Revelation (Revelation 1:1):

1. The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:

Actually, the power given to two olive trees means the spiritual one. They can close or reopen heaven, in order to stop or resume the coming down of the Holy Spirit like dew or rain. It seems like what Elias had when in earth. Also, they can breathe the Holy Spirit into water, turning it into the living water with the blood of Jesus. It looks like what Moses had when in earth.

Two Olive Trees in the Zechariah

Meanwhile, two olive trees are foretold not only in the Revelation but also in the Zechariah. In there, it was written for them that these are the two anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth (Zechariah 4:14):

14. Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth.

As forementioned in the Revelation 11:4, this phrase also shows that two olive trees stand by the LORD of the whole earth. From these two phrases, it is easily sensed that God destined them to do the very crucial work for him, the Providence of God.

One day, an angel appeared to Zechariah the Prophecy, and show him a candlestick – all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof – and two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof. And, he asked Zechariah. “Knowest thou not what these be?” Zechariah answered to him. “No, my lord” (Zechariah 4:2~5):

2. And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:
3. And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
4. So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?
5. Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.

Thereupon, the angel started to explain it to him, referring the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel: “Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts. Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.”

And, he said to Zechariah that moreover the word of the LORD came unto him. It was saying, “The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it.” Additionally, the angel told to Zechariah. “For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven. They are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth” (Zechariah 4:6~10):

6. Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
7. Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.
8. Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
9. The hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house; his hands shall also finish it; and thou shalt know that the LORD of hosts hath sent me unto you.
10. For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.

In these talks between Zechariah and the angel, God was explaining in similitudes about what two olive trees should do in the future, through overlapping it with the role of Zerubbabel. In it, great mountain means iniquity of that land, and it implies, as great mountain becomes a plain before Zerubbabel, iniquity on the earth is supposed to be removed with hands of two olive trees in one day (Zechariah 3:9):

9. For behold the stone that I have laid before Joshua; upon one stone shall be seven eyes: behold, I will engrave the graving thereof, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will remove the iniquity of that land in one day.

Just like the first olive tree, the second olive tree has been cleansing away many kinds of sin of his followers with his hands. As Zerubbabel finished the temple with his hands, the second olive tree is also destined to fulfill the hundred and forty and four thousand, the Lamb’s wife, ending up completing the holy city, new Jerusalem (Revelation 21:2, 9~10):

2. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.

9. And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
10. And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,

To accomplish this mission, he is holding – in his hands – a white stone with a new name and seven eyes, just like the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with seven eyes. It is because the role of olive tree is supposed to be played by ‘him that overcometh’, the overcomer (Hosea 14:5~6):

5. I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.
6. His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.

In the meantime, there are a few calling himself the overcomer, entirely not referring to two olive trees. Surely, they are false prophets. Of course, even if speaking about two olive trees, without spiritual powers from God and Jesus, they are also false prophets.

Even though choosing the overcomer to play the role of olive tree, Jesus promised to introduce him to God and his angels. It is because two olive trees were foretold directly by God, and also very crucial to the Providence of God (Revelation 3:5):

5. He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment; and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.

Meanwhile, in addition to that, God gives the overcomer the inheritance of the fountain of the water of life, and treats him as his son (Revelation 21:6~7):

6. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
7. He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.

Zechariah said to the angel. “What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?” Then, the angel answered to him. “These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth”. It means, two olive trees were designated to do work for the LORD of the whole earth, the Providence of God (Zechariah 4:11~14):

11. 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 thereof?
12. And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?
13. And he answered me and said, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.
14. Then said he, These are the two anointed ones, that stand by the LORD of the whole earth.

Two Olive Trees fight against the Beast

Now, returning to the Revelation, let’s take a look into two olive trees in there. As mentioned before, they are determined to do the Providence of God with great spiritual power. If fulfilling with it an hundred and forty and four thousand, the number of righteous saints, two olive trees reign with both the righteous number and Christ a thousand years.

After the thousand years passed, two olive trees and the righteous saints are supposed to fight against the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit, and be defeated, ending up suffering severely. At this time, two olive trees shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

Then, about these things, the Revelation 11:9 describes in the way that their dead bodies lie in the street of the great city three days and an half. Needless to say, this shall happen in spiritual world, after the thousand years expired. So, actually, they are not dead. It means, the power of them is going to be scattered. But, after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet (Revelation 11:3~13):

3. And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.
4. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.
5. And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed.
6. These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.
7. 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.
8. And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
9. And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves.
10. And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth.
11. And after three days and an half the spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them.
12. And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them.
13. And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven.

In Chapter 12 of Daniel, Daniel saw a very intriguing scene. There stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river. And, upon the waters of the river, there is another man clothed in linen. And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river. “How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?” Upon that, the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever: “It shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished” (Daniel 12:5~7):

5. Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.
6. And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
7. And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.

The bottom line is, all of ‘a thousand two hundred and threescore days’ in the Revelation 11:3, ‘three days and an half’ in the Revelation 11:9, and ‘a time, times, and an half’ in the Daniel 12:7 commonly mean just the duration, when two olive trees and the hundred and forty and four thousand – after being defeated by the beast ascending from the bottomless pit – are scheduled for being suffered.

In Daniel 12:5, of two ones on both sides of the bank of the river, the one standing without asking stands for the first olive tree. In the earth, after the Crucifixion of Jesus, he is the very first person receiving ‘the hidden manna’ – the dew and living water, and sowing seeds in the temple.

Meanwhile, the other one – asking about the end of these wonders to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river – represents the second olive tree. So, besides ‘the hidden manna’, he receives ‘a white stone with a new name’ containing the secret of the end time. It is what no man knows saving he that receives it (Revelation 2:17):

17. He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.

He is destined to complete the righteous number, 144,000, the Providence of God for this time, reaping the harvest of the earth in the temple (Revelation 14:14~16):

14. And I looked, and behold a white cloud, and upon the cloud one sat like unto the Son of man, having on his head a golden crown, and in his hand a sharp sickle.
15. And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.
16. And he that sat on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth; and the earth was reaped.

In Daniel 12:6, the man clothed in linen symbolizes Jesus. He is explaining about when the last war finishes between God and Satan. This is what angel shows to Daniel things that happen in far distant future, the end time. Indeed, the scene of Daniel 12:6~7 was realized from Jesus giving ‘a white stone with the new name’ to the second olive tree.

Now, it’s the Second Olive Tree days

Absolutely, it is certain that the mission of two olive trees is the very Providence of God. Even though the first olive tree getting wrong badly, in order to remedy the hurt from his faults, the second olive tree appears after the first one, finally completing the mission of two olive trees.

At 1955, in Wonhyoro, western district of Seoul, Korea, the first olive tree appeared and started to do the mission of two olive trees. But, after three years, he started to insist ‘the Good and Bad Conditions’. “When under the good condition, only one olive tree is needed. And, when bad, two olive trees are needed.” It was derailing from the right way determined 2,600 years ago by God. No matter what happens, the mission of two olive trees is determined to be done by, not one or two, but always two overcomers.

Then, Jesus ordered the first olive tree to hand over his authority to the second olive tree. But, he did not obey. So, Jesus had the second olive tree do his work separately in Cheongnyangni, eastern region of Seoul, Korea. Therefore, unsmoothly realized was the foretold of Zechariah: “But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be” (Zechariah 14:7~8):

7. But it shall be one day which shall be known to the LORD, not day, nor night: but it shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light.
8. And it shall be in that day, that living waters shall go out from Jerusalem; half of them toward the former sea, and half of them toward the hinder sea: in summer and in winter shall it be.

On the other hand, there are a few of people, saying like this: “Should the first olive tree be he that overcometh. why couldn’t he accept the order of Jesus? So, it is the proof that the mission of two olive trees is not the Providence of God.” But, this comes from their ignorance about the Bible.

In the Old Testament days, there is Saul the King anointed, through Samuel the Prophecy, by God. Many times, he disobeyed the words of God, ending up having God repent about setting up him to be king. So, God anointed young David, reserving him to be the king of Israel in the future (1Samuel 15:11, 16:1, 12~13):

15:11. It repenteth me that I have set up Saul to be king: for he is turned back from following me, and hath not performed my commandments. And it grieved Samuel; and he cried unto the LORD all night.

16:1. And the LORD said unto Samuel, How long wilt thou mourn for Saul, seeing I have rejected him from reigning over Israel? fill thine horn with oil, and go, I will send thee to Jesse the Bethlehemite: for I have provided me a king among his sons.

16:12. And he sent, and brought him in. Now he was ruddy, and withal of a beautiful countenance, and goodly to look to. And the LORD said, Arise, anoint him: for this is he.
16:13. Then Samuel took the horn of oil, and anointed him in the midst of his brethren: and the Spirit of the LORD came upon David from that day forward. So Samuel rose up, and went to Ramah.

Unfortunately, just like the conflicting of Saul and David, the similar trouble arose between two olive trees:

God simultaneously anointed the first olive tree and the young second olive tree. No matter what happens, exactly as written in the Bible, the mission of two olive trees is to be done by two olive trees – two ‘him that overcometh’. Insisting the good and bad conditions, the first olive tree preached: “When the good condition, only one olive tree is needed and when bad, two olive trees are needed.” It was the fatal fault to wittingly modify God’s words in the Bible. From this fault, the first olive tree got lost favor in God’s eyes.

And, just like Saul the King trying to kill David, the first olive tree also attempted to remove the second olive tree. Using the political atmosphere of Korea under the martial law, he purposely put the false charge of violation of anti-communism law to the second olive tree, making him go to jail. But God and Jesus protected him, not being sentenced to death and finally being free (1Samuel 19:1):

1. And Saul spake to Jonathan his son, and to all his servants, that they should kill David.

The second olive tree is prepared to restore the fault of the first one, fulfilling the righteous number, ending up casting Satan into the bottomless pit. After that, the Second Advent of Jesus comes true and the Millennium Kingdom is established for God.

No matter what, as predicted in the Hosea, it is determined to come true that they that dwell under his shadow of the olive tree shall return (Hosea 14:5~7):

5. I will be as the dew unto Israel: he shall grow as the lily, and cast forth his roots as Lebanon.
6. His branches shall spread, and his beauty shall be as the olive tree, and his smell as Lebanon.
7. They that dwell under his shadow shall return; they shall revive as the corn, and grow as the vine: the scent thereof shall be as the wine of Lebanon.
