Satan’s Avatar Vs God’s Witnesses 

Chapter 9 of Corrupting the Image 3 : Satan’s Avatar Vs God’s Witnesses 

Now let’s take a look at the impending battle between the Beast and the Two Witnesses. To make war against his arch enemies (the terrorizers of earth) and to overcome them, the Beast will need to possess powers greater than theirs!  

Up to this point, the Two Witnesses have been invincible. Nothing has been able to stop them until the appointed time. If threatened, they destroy by the fire coming out of their mouths (Rev 11:5). They have power over weather and rain; They can turn water into blood; They bring plagues on earth at their own judgement (Rev11:5–6). They are on a mission from God. 

Fusing with Satan and gaining his powers is the game changer for the Beast. While having a physical body is a game changer for Satan. The Beast will be armed with “all power, signs, and lying wonders (2 Thess 2:9), and the full arsenal of Satan’s weapons will belong to the Beast, which marks the end of the Two Witnesses’ supremacy. Even these Two with superhero powers will fall by the hand of the Beast.  

“When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war [πόλεμος polemos] against them, overcome them, and kill them” (Rev 11:7). 

The abomination of desolation occurs in conjunction with the killing of the Two Witnesses. The way the text is written could be interpreted in two ways: 1) that that he first kills them and then goes into the temple to boast that he is a god, or 2) he first goes into the Temple, makes his boast, is killed and comes back to life, and then makes war on them. We are going with option 2.  

We know the battle will take place in Jerusalem since, “their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified” (Rev 11:8). Some commentators have objected, saying that the city could not be Jerusalem since it was never called Sodom or Egypt. Yet a simple search in Scripture reveals that it has been called those names many times.  

  • Concerning Judah and Jerusalem. A people laden with iniquity, a brood of evildoers, children who are corrupters! They have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked to anger the Holy One of Israel, they have turned away backward. Hear the word of the LORD, you rulers of Sodom; give ear to the law of our God, you people of Gomorrah (Isa 1:1, 4, 10). 
  • For Jerusalem stumbled, and Judah is fallen, because their tongue and their doings are against the LORD, to provoke the eyes of His glory (Isa 3:8). …they declare their sin as Sodom… (Isa 3:9). 
  • Jerusalem has never given up her harlotry brought from Egypt … (Ezek 23:4, 8). 

Jesus also made it clear that those in Judea ought to flee (Mat 24:16). There can be little doubt that the place in question is none other than Jerusalem, where Jesus134 was crucified. 

We can only imagine the scale of the war that will take place between the Beast and the Two Witnesses. Revelation simply states the Beast will make “war.” While it could refer to a single battle rather than a protracted years-long conflict like WWII, it definitely conveys the idea of an arduous struggle, with both sides fighting for their lives—using the full extent of their resources to overcome their foe. Judging from their respective awe-inspiring and supernatural powers, such a battle will likely include lightning strikes, hurricane force winds, directing harm-inflicting hornets and locusts, flying projectiles, darkness, manipulation of water and nature, and more.  

The deadly battle will likely continue for hours or perhaps days until at last, the Beast gains the upper hand and overcomes them. In a radical change of fortune, the Two Witnesses who had “tormented those who dwell on the earth” (Rev 11:10) are finally outmatched. The Beast then delivers the fatal blow, and they collapse. Dead. If the world was not able to make war against the Two Witnesses but suffered from their torments, then the question “who can make war with the beast” (Rev 13:4) suddenly rings true at a whole new level. The answer is—no one on earth! Nevertheless, the death of the Two will be cause for worldwide rejoicing and jubilation. 

Witnesses’ Bodies Out in the Open 

It is hard to genuinely appreciate the sigh of relief the world will emit when “their dead bodies will lie in the street” (Rev 11:8). At that point, agreeing to Satan’s covenant (with death and Sheol) will look like it was a great deal, since under his protection the two hostile entities were routed. The world will be ecstatic. For those who have believed in the Lord, and who knew that these Two Witnesses were from God, it will be a day of sorrow. But for those not willing to repent, their death will be cause for immense rejoicing. These two extra-terrestrial terrorists who demanded the world to repent and submit to the God of Israel will be gone. Earth-dwellers will finally shed tears of relief that they are no more. As part of the celebration of their death, and perhaps to quell any residual disbelief that they are truly gone, their bodies will be left on display for all the world to see:  

“Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves” (Rev 11:9). 

Everybody on the planet will see their dead bodies displayed for three and a half days, a correlation to the 3.5 years, 1260 days, or 42 months they spent witnessing. Their death will become a new holiday:  

“And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth” (Rev 11:10). 

They will be so delighted the Two are dead that they will send gifts to one another. There is incredible euphoria the world over. Truly, a new age has dawned for mankind. The Beast is the most revered man on earth. How could there not be jubilation? The two hostile aliens who rained their plagues upon earth, whom the world’s greatest weapons could not defeat, are finally, once and for all, dead! The euphoria after the Allies who defeated Nazi Germany will pale in comparison. Earth itself is saved! There will be dancing in the streets and massive public displays of affection. Those who found themselves targeted to repent, but refused, will be the most ecstatic. Finally, the two hostiles who challenged mankind’s way of life are no more. Their message of hate has been silenced. The tormentors that plagued earth are gone. Finally, the world can get back to the old ways of lust, debauchery, and carnal pleasures without anybody condemning, convicting, or accusing them. 

The one responsible for their death will be hailed a hero. No. A superhero. No…A god. If he was able to destroy the Two whom no one else could defeat, then he would be worthy of worship and allegiance.  

They’re Baaaaaack!  

The victory lap will be short lived though. Just as the world is settling into life as it used to be, the ones left to rot in the streets suddenly come back to life!  

“After the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them. And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, Come up here. And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them” (Rev 11:11–12). 

This is, of course, reminiscent of when Yeshua went up to the top of the Mount of Olives, and the disciples were watching him, then He was lifted up into the sky, went into a cloud, and disappeared from their sight. While the disciples were gaping at the sky, the angels came and asked why they were standing around. “This Jesus will come back in the same manner that you saw him go” (Acts 1:9–11). It was a bodily resurrection of Jesus, and a bodily ascension up into the atmosphere.  

It will be the same with the Two Witnesses; it will be a bodily resurrection and a bodily ascension into the atmosphere, where God then receives them up into a cloud and their enemies will see them. The text is stressing that this is a real-world, tangible, literal event. It will not be merely a metaphor of a biblical truth. The Two may be representative of Israel and the Church, Jews and gentiles, the law and the prophets, or the house of Judah and house of Israel, etc. However, the physical death and then revival of the Two cannot apply merely to a symbolic presence, but rather, to two physical bodies. 

We know the world will send real gifts to one another because the two real beings that caused them real and terrible grief are finally gone. Only two literal, real-world, defeated-and-then-really-resurrected individuals fit the bill.  

Of course, at the revival of the Two, the world will be petrified (Rev 11:12). After all, these tormenters were untouchable until the Beast rose from the abyss and killed them. But now, not even death can defeat them? To top it off, a voice from the sky calls them and they depart, with frightening events following: 

“In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the God of heaven” (Rev 11:13). 

Some will recognize that the earthquake came from God and will give him glory.135 That means that they acknowledge that the Two Witnesses were truly from the God of heaven, and that they need to repent —just like at the cross, after the earthquake, the Roman soldier recognized: “Indeed this was the Son of God.” This will likely be the moment some of the leadership in Jerusalem realize they might have given their authority to the wrong guy. Sadly though, many around the world will continue in their hard-headedness, just like Pharaoh did.  

The Beast and the central ruling power will likely use the Two Witnesses’ resurrection to shore up any doubts about his scheme. In order for his plan to work, as this book has outlined, he must get all humanity to sign up for his covenant of death and Sheol, if he is to regain complete authority over planet earth. This will be why everyone will be required to take the mark of the Beast so that they cannot repent of giving him their authority and turn to Jesus. Satan’s survival depends on everyone accepting it and becoming his slave.  

Therefore, Satan (via the Beast) may spin the resurrection of the Two, pegging the God of Israel as a vindictive, egotistical, cruel, genocidal, bigoted ancient alien who is upset every time man finds success in independence. Satan’s propaganda may go something like, “The God of Israel is the malevolent creator who seeks to limit us to make sure we do not evolve into gods, which is why God sent the Two.” The Beast will likely point out that after becoming a god himself, he was able to defeat them, and the world can too. And because the Two will return with Jesus and his army, it is imperative that everyone on earth be ready to fight for earth and “our way of life.” 

The Beast could beat the Two, but a whole army? Therefore, to match the colossal force of Jesus’ army, everyone on earth will need to “upgrade” with his god-like, hybridized DNA and acquire the extra physical and implanted capabilities for that kind of fight. Then together with their enhanced god-abilities, the world can unite and fight against the Lord of Hosts coming with his hostile alien army who will attempt to steal the planet.

The False Prophet 

At this point, one known as the False Prophet (cf. Rev 19) will rise up to rally the world to get behind the cause. He will look peaceful like a lamb, but he is extremely dangerous and speaks like a dragon. The False Prophet’s job will be to help humanity unite themselves around Satan’s plan. 

Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name (Rev 13:11–17).  

When this is happening, people will not know him as the “false prophet,” in contrast to the two true prophets God sent to be witnesses of the truth, which the world rejected. And because they rejected the truth, now they will believe the lie and make falsehood their refuge. The False Prophet is the one who tells the world the sweet lie they want to hear—that they can defeat YHWH. 

The False Prophet will make a convincing pitch to the world on why they should believe and trust the Beast who has gone before them, has merged with the advanced and ancient “god” Enlil, who has been a champion of humanity for millennia (see Corrupting the Image 2) and wants to see us become superhuman.  

Indeed, Damien Echols, convicted in 1994 of what prosecutors labeled “satanic sex ritual slayings,”136 is now “openly touting the power of summoning angels through the power of Enlil,” and is teaching “’high magick’ to subscribers through his Patreon page.”137 Echols recounts his experience: 

One morning when I was in the middle of the angelic invocations involved in the Shem Operation, I experienced something that was initially disorienting and frightening. Suddenly it felt like the very earth dropped away beneath my feet. I was surrounded by an incredible amount of light—it was so bright that it felt like I was standing in the middle of the sun. Then it felt like something snapped, and I was surrounded by the darkness of an infinite void. […] 

The closest I’ll ever be able to come to articulating what happened is this: I saw the nighttime sky. It was crystal clear—truly beautiful. And then, across this vision of the sky, I saw a word spelled out, just as if the wind were gently rippling across the stars as if they were wheat. The word was Enlil. […]  

So, of course, I began invoking him. Instead of calling upon all of the angelic intelligences I’d been using, I invoked Enlil in all directions—east, west, up, down, and everywhere in between. The resultant energy I experienced was unlike anything I’d ever felt, even after years of intense angel work. Enlil’s presence was like feeling the unified power of a thousand archangels.138 

All that humanity needs to do to acquire that same “unified power of a thousand angels” is to take the Beast’s DNA and merge it with their own, and they will be gods as well. Getting the upgrade will likely be voluntary at first. When some people are slow to get it, then they will be unable to buy. When that does not incentivize, the False Prophet will have the Beast’s authority and can demand submission upon pain of death.  

The False Prophet will explain how becoming a god is vital to humanity’s survival; if the world had an army of evolved beings like the Beast, then mankind might stand a chance against the coming hostiles. With fear driving them, those who dwell on the earth will understand everyone must become a superhuman god, like the Beast, in order to fight the god-like aliens who are coming to enslave them. The False Prophet may explain how the coming of the Two Witnesses was not planned, but serves as the catalyst to hasten the next phase of our evolution—to become an immortal super-soldier to deal with the hostile army. The False Prophet may promise utopia afterwards, like the Twilight Zone aliens who promised to make the earth into a Garden of Eden.
