Just when you think all the silliness of the Philadelphia Church of God has been used up, along comes Gerald Flurry claiming he is one of the Two Witless Witnesses. Apparently lil'Stevie is the second one. As the Two Witless Witnesses they will have the power to devour their enemies with fire from their mouths as the prattle around Jerusalem proclaiming Herb's Word.
According to Flurry it is only he and his church that are doing a work because not one single other Church of God has a lamp that's burning brightly in this wicked dark and sinful world. This must really frost Dave Pack who thinks he has the only lamp burning. All this in turn ticks of UCG and COGWA who think they are God's gift to humanity.
They have all become such useless windbags saying such incredibly ludicrous things that nothing they say any more can be regarded as "truth" - not that it ever was.
These two men are to prophesy for 1,260 days. That means they start prophesying at the very beginning of the Great Tribulation and continue until the end. The point is, they are ready to prophesy for God when the Tribulation starts. These two men have great power. “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. 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” (verses 5-6). Would a Laodicean leader have the faith for God to use him so forcefully? If he didn’t have the faith to do God’s warning Work, could he have the faith to demonstrate such power? Where in the Bible can you find God using a “blind” Laodicean-type leader who is about to be spewed out of His mouth to do such a job? (Revelation 3:14-19).
True Philadelphians did God’s Work in both the Philadelphian and Laodicean eras. Even though this is now the Laodicean era, God’s Philadelphia Church still does God’s Work. Only they are willing to “rise and measure the temple of God” (Revelation 11:1), or do God’s Work. So the godly representatives from both eras are Philadelphians. The two witnesses are called two lamps (“candlesticks” is not a good translation). And we know these lamps (two witnesses) are both burning at the beginning of the Tribulation. So it is really the lamps on which God is focusing. The Laodiceans do not have a lamp—so how can a Laodicean be one of God’s witnesses or lamps? These two lamps or witnesses could only come from the Philadelphia Church, where God’s lamp is located! Who Are The Two Witnesses
