Verse 2

And I said

The vision of the candlestick and olive trees (lit. trees of oil) is, as we know, from Revelation 11:3-12 a prophecy to be fulfilled in the last days of the present age. That which marks the ministry of the "two witnesses" Revelation 11:3; Revelation 11:4 is power. (Cf Zechariah 4:6). In measure this power would rest upon Zerubbabel, who, having begun the restoration temple of Zechariah's time, would finish it (v.9) laying the "headstone" amid the shoutings of the people. The whole scene forms a precursive fulfilment of the ministry of the two witnesses of Revelation 11:0. and of the coming of the true "headstone," Prince Messiah, of whom prince Zerubbabel is a type. Oil is a uniform symbol of the Spirit. (See Scofield "Revelation 11:0- :") . Joshua and Zerubbabel were doubtless the two olive trees for that day, as the two witnesses of Revelation 11:0. may, in turn, but point to Christ as Priest-King in the kingdom- age. Zechariah 6:12; Zechariah 6:13.

Verse 10


(See Scofield " :-")
