    Who will be the two witnesses during the tribulation
  • Sheila Davis - in Reply
    My opinion is they are Enoch and Elijah. Those are the only two humans according to scripture that did not die - both were taken up. Scripture says it is appointed to man to die once. The two witnesses, they stand before God, and as the prophets of old God gave them to power to perform miracles, and prophesied. These two shall die in the streets of Jerusalem and once again God will call them up. They don't face judgment.

    Who are the 2 candlesticks and 2 olive trees that stand before God? Figure out who these symbolize and you will understand who the 2 witnesses are. They are sealed from both houses.

    FYI Enoch and Elijah are very much dead, it's just that the writers romanticized their mortal departures. Jesus said, 2 will be in the field and 1 shall be TAKEN (dead). ...and God took Enoch meaning Enoch died.

    To each their own interpretation. The majority of churches preach neither suffer death but with taken from Earth by God. In fact I don't know one church that does teach as you say - and if I did I wouldn't want to be a part of it.

    The witnesses are the one hundred and forty four thousand sealed from death for 42 months. They are showcased in 7 different chapters of Revelation, in different capacities, allegories and metaphors. Like their appearance in Chapter 12; only the witnesses, (the 12 tribes) are sealed and protected for 42 months.

    When the witness are called up to heaven (Revelation 11:12) and they appear in heaven as the one hundred forty four thousand (Revelation 7:13-14) after being sealed 42 months prior (Revelation 7:1-8) They come out of the great tribulation!!!

    (Revelation 11:4) These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. These 2 olive trees and 2 candlesticks are both houses of Israel, 2 nations, before God.

    There is no separation between the witnesses and the sealed tribes, they are one in the same.

    Mister Jason as I said to each his own interpretation of scripture, differences in interpretations is one reason why there are so many different denominations of the church. Simply, I disagree with you, one other thing the Bible States is do not debate over scripture - Titus 3:9 _ nd Timothy 2:14, you had your say, I've had mine, thank you.

    It's not my opinion, it is written for all to see, for all to follow. The fact is Elijah is promised BEFORE the day of the Lord, not during or after, so he can't possibly be a witness. You are stubborn and can't take instruction; don't muse with your ego when you have access to the word of God (Hosea 4:6).

    The 5th seal saints are the fellowservants of the one hundred forty four thousand sealed saints, also dressed in white robes. The 2 witnesses die in the same manner as their 5th seal fellowservants, and are taken up to heaven (Revelation 7:9).

    (Revelation 6:9-11) And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

    10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

    11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

    The saints are there to witness and report on anti-christ's crimes. Two symbolic witnesses are required at trial to render their testimony. They are NOT Elijah and Moses.
