The Two Olive Trees are Moses and Elijah

The two witnesses described (in Revelation 11) as two olive trees standing before the Lord of the whole earth are Moses and Elijah.

"The two witnesses are the two olive trees and the two lamps that stand before the Lord of the earth." (Revelation 11:4)

The new Jerusalem is a binary system, such that Moses and Elijah are treated as a tag team.

Elijah was the one that held back rain and brought drought to the earth.

'A prophet named Elijah, from Tishbe in Gilead, said to King Ahab, "In the name of the LORD, the living God of Israel, whom I serve, I tell you that there will be no dew or rain for the next two or three years until I say so."' (1 Kings 17:1)

In Revelation 11, this attribute of Elijah was portrayed as a shared characteristic of Moses and Elijah, "They have authority to shut up the sky so that there will be no rain during the time they proclaim God's message." (Revelation 11:6).

We know from our knowledge of the famous Egyptian plagues that Moses turned the water of the river Nile into blood and struck Egypt with other plagues. But Revelation 11 attributed it to Moses and Elijah, "They have authority also over the springs of water, to turn them into blood; they have authority also to strike the earth with every kind of plague as often as they wish." (Revelation 11:6).

They: Moses and Elijah

The reason is that Moses is an olive tree whose root is Elijah, and Elijah is an olive tree whose root is Moses.

We know that the ten sefirot constitute the crown of the tree of life whose root is Malkuth. When Moses is the ten sefirot, Elijah is Malkuth, and when Elijah is the ten sefirot, Moses is Malkuth.

The ten sefirot representing Elijah are the ten decimal digits, and the ten sefirot representing Moses are ten binary numbers corresponding to the ten decimal digits.

The crown of the first olive tree, representing Elijah, is made up of the decimal digits 0 to 9 and its root is 01. And the crown of the second olive tree, representing Moses, is made up of the binary numbers 0 to 1001 and its root is 10.

01 = Moses (root of olive tree 2)
     = Malkuth

10 = Elijah (root of olive tree 1)
     = Malkuth

Decimal Digits = Elijah (crown of olive tree 2)
                            = Ten Sefirot

Binary Digits = Moses (crown of olive tree 1)
                         = Ten Sefirot

Moses represents the Law and Elijah represents the prophets, such that the two olive trees are the Law and the Prophet.

Note that the two witnesses are also called two lamps.

    1. The two witnesses are null because they brought judgment on the whole earth. In the tree of life, judgment is 0 (null) and non-judgment is 1. Null or zero means that all people are acquitted of sin and declared Not Guilty!

  2. I really want to thank the author for such a nice blog that helped me to understand why it is important. thanks for sharing. Specimen Olive Trees
