Dr. J. Vernon McGee, John the Baptist represents one of the Two witness’s of the Apocalypse 2-18-21

Then into the scene walk two witnesses Who are they? Elijah? John the Baptist? We don’t know. These witnesses are lights before the powers of darkness. They’re filled with the Holy Spirit and have power over nature and the ability to strike the earth with plagues as often as they wish, which reveals God’s confidence in them. But then why does God allow the Antichrist to kill them? You’ll be so amazed at the answer. AUDIO
