The two witnesses Moses and Elijah will come back physically to earth from God in heaven to Jerusalem Israel to preach and to evangelise with a renewed hope to restore people back to God. The world will soon experience again Moses and Elijah heralding the Kingdom of God in Christ to bring change on earth. This belief is expressed in Shabbat mey-eyn olam ha-ba as a sampler of the world to come. Daily song sang about Elijah herald the Messiah as Havdalah brings the Shabbat to a close. The doors are left opened for Moses and Elijah late in the Pesach Seder to express hope God’s Sovereignty to be established soon on earth. In the Bible, Elijah is regarded as one of Israel’s greatest prophets. He modified weather patterns over Israel for years in a row, raised the dead, called down fire from heaven multiple times, and was taken off to heaven in a chariot by whirlwind, skipping death. In fact, at Jesus’s transfiguration, “there appeared before them Elijah and Moses, who were talking with Jesus witnessed by disciples in Mark 9:4. God Chose to show Jesus’s TRUE NATURE as the Son of God at the transfiguration to the two Old Testament prophets who showed up. Moses, widely regarded as one of the greatest of the Old Testament joined Elijah. In addition, the Jewish passover meal to this day features place set for Elijah in hope of his return. Israel is waiting for Moses and Elijah to return in bodily form as transfiguration to preach salvation before the SECOND RETURN of Jesus HIGHLY expected. We await Jesus’s return as the MESSIAH at the end of the age preceded by Moses and Elijah’s return in great Tribulation. By declaring often that the MESSIAH is very close urges all to pray for Coming of Messiah. Believers are to do everything possible to hasten Coming of Messiah through love of others to increase Godly love acts of kindness. The Bible teaches all individual human being must live as if all are individually responsible each day to bring about Messianic Age. The words based on prophet Habakkuk 2:3 that says although Jesus may tarry, yet continue to wait for Him, Moses and Elijah each day.
Expectations are very high agreeing with texts in Bible for righteous intercessions of remnants causes God to Hear prayer to shorten evil days by sending MESSIAH quicker. An Endtime Signal is increased followers of Christ become involved in outreach activities with the purpose of bringing about the Jewish Messianic Age faster. The Bible says the end will come faster to redeem mankind after Gospel reaches all nations and all people as a witness so they have no excuse to deny Jesus. Matthew 24:14 says Gospel of the KINGDOM of God shall be preached in the whole world for a Testimony then the end comes. New Testament frequently cites texts in Holy Scriptures to support the Truth by early Christians that Jesus of Nazareth is the MESSIAH. So Faith is required in Jesus’ Imminent expected SECOND Coming to change the world for good. Majority of quotations, references taken from Books of Isaiah range over entire body of Jewish writings from God. Fulfilled in Jesus continues to be fulfilled in living history. John the baptist was a forerunner who fulfilled in Matthew 11: 14 the spirit and power of Elijah Prophet Malachi predicted before his coming. So the spirit and power of Elijah, in John is seen 3 distinct characteristics of him as forerunner and messenger of Messiah. Behold I send my messenger before me, in Malachi 3:1. Secondly, he appeared before destruction of the second temple. Thirdly, he preached repentance to Jews that some time afterwards the great and terrible day of the Lord will come and the Jewish land smit with curse in Malachi 4:5, Malachi 4:6. These three characters agree perfectly with the conduct of the Baptist which is a convincing proof that Jesus was the promised Messiah. So John was zealous for work of God like Elijah so successful but persecuted by Herodias’ wife as Elijah was by Jezebel Ahab’s wife. Moses and Elijah encountered adversity due to God’s work but John lived during the time of Yeshua Messiah as a cousin. Among prophets privileged to see Jesus prophetess Anna and others in His day.
These two Great Witnesses with Messiah Yeshua are Highly regarded as they met before in the transfiguration meeting all requirements of Messianic Prophecies as God Ordained. Moses gave the law and Elijah the Spirit to restore faith in God. The advent of Moshiach is one of great travail and turmoil. There will be a world recession and governments controlled by despots. It is in this troubled setting that Moshiach will arrive. There will be war will take place called the war of Gog and Magog. There is speculation of the precise timing of this war in relation to Moshiach’s arrival. There is a tradition Prophet Elijah will come to the world to announce imminent arrival of Moshiach. However, according to others, Moshiach ARRIVES unannounced publicly so Elijah arrives to assist in salvation process. So some suggest if the Moshiach arrives in His God predestined time Elijah will be preparing to announce his arrival; but if Moshiach COMES suddenly, then Elijah will appear after Moshiach COMES. The technological grip of despots over fellow humans will cease when Moshiach takes back power during his Second Coming. It is the battle to wrench power from those despots that causes Armageddon battle. So Psalm 2:1-9 asks, Why do the nations conspire, and the peoples plot in vain? 2. The kings of the earth set themselves and the rulers take counsel together, against the LORD and HIS Anointed, saying 3. Let us burst their bonds asunder and cast their cords from us. 4. God WHO Sits in the heavens Laughs; the LORD has them in derision. 5. Then HE WILL SPEAK to them in HIS wrath and terrify them in HIS fury, saying, 6. I have set MY KING on ZION MY HOLY HILL. 7. I Will tell the decree of the LORD HE SAID to me, ‘You are MY SON, today I have begotten you. 8. Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. 9. You shall break them with rod of iron and dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel in Psalm 2: 1-9.
Haggai 2:6-9, This is what ADONAI-Tzva’ot SAYS: “It will not be long before one more time I WILL shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. 7 I WILL shake all nations so treasures of all nations will flow in to fill MY HOUSE with GLORY SAYS ADONAI-Tzva’ot. 8 “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine,” says ADONAI-Tzva’ot. 9 The GLORY of this NEW HOUSE will surpass old, SAYS ADONAI-Tzva’ot and in THIS PLACE, I WILL GRANT SHALOM,” SAYS ADONAI-Tzva’ot. Daniel 9:24-27, PROPHECY OF 70 WEEKS FULFULS THE CHANGES TAKING PLACE IN the world on EARTH TODAY. Seventy weeks are determined upon people and the HOLY CITY to finish all transgression and to make end of sins, to make reconciliation for iniquity to bring in EVERLASTING righteousness of the sealed VISION PROPHECY to ANOINT the MOST HOLY Jesus. Know therefore and understand from the going forth of commandments to RESTORE to BUILD JERUSALEM for The MESSIAH PRINCE is seven weeks threescore, two weeks. Jesus Said Just like the flood in the days of Noah in the endtime judgment of God will come suddenly as stated in Matthew 24:36–41. But those who know the Lord need not fear for God WILL PROVIDE a safe shelter, a teivah, from the raging storm of tribulation, just as He provided the ark for Noah and his family. The prophet Isaiah wrote, “Come, My people, enter your chambers and shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself as it were for a little moment until the indignation is past in Isaiah 26:20. God help us emerge from the Ark of God’s shelter in unity of faith to establish the new heavens and new earth of PEACE, RIGHTEOUSNESS and JUSTICE by RULE of Messiah Yeshua.
The street shall be built again and the wall even in troublous times and after threescore and two weeks, Messiah cut off but not for Himself the people of the PRINCE shall come to destroy the City and Sanctuary and the end thereof shall be with a flood and to the end of the war desolations are determined. And He shall confirm the COVENANT with many for one week. In the midst of the week he shall cause sacrifice and the oblation to cease, and for the overspreading of abominations He shall make it desolate, even until the consummation, and that determined shall be poured on many in Daniel 9:24-27. MOST HOLY ANOINTED MESSIAH THE PRINCE Jesus was cut off by His Crucifixion. The people of the Prince to come refers to the Romans who destroyed Jerusalem and the Temple in 70 AD. The Gospel of Mark 13:14 refers to the horrible abomination of desolation or and the Gospel of Matthew adds direct reference to the Books of DANIEL. Sealed prophecies of Daniel comes to pass as endtime festival of feasts or celebrations mark the events foretold in the Bible.
The desolating sacrilege spoken of by the prophet Daniel and Jesus in Matthew 24:15 came to pass. A general scholarly view is the author of Daniel was writing contempory account of the Maccabean Revolt c. 167 BCE and the cutting off of Jesus anointed one. Daniel 9:26 refers to murder of high priest Onias III another abomination of desolation. Antiochus IV erecting a statue of Zeus in Temple was a final straw breaking uneasy coexistence of traditionalist and Hellenised Jew. The Jewish expectation of Moshiach is from the following passages in the Bible and Jewish Scriptures are ones Jews consider to be Messianic in nature relating to the end of days. These are the ones relied on in developing Messianic concept:
- Isaiah 2, 11, 42; 59:20
- Jeremiah 23, 30, 33; 48:47; 49:39
- Ezekiel 38:16
- Hosea 3:4-3:5
- Micah 4
- Zephaniah 3:9
- Zechariah 14:9
- Daniel 10:14
Jews interpret these passages Christians consider Messianic teaching of the word of God. To the wise is a fountain of life, turning a person from snares of death in Proverbs 13:14 and Deuteronomy 32:47, to Jesus WHO Overcame death by resurrection miracle for Everlasting Eternal life.
The two witnesses are to prepare people for the Second Coming of Jesus on earth. A second chance is being given to people to change their ways to become a part of God ‘s Kingdom. Current global events all point to the further fulfilment of endtime prohecies. Moses and Elijah appeared to Jesus before His Crucifixion, in the same both will return physically to earth and to prepare the way for Jesus to Return to earth to rule. Deuteronomy 18:15 is one of the earliest prophecies that speaks of a prophet to be raised up among the Jewish nation. God raised up a PROPHET among you and from your own kinsmen, pay attention to Him. God raised Jesus up and put HIS WORDS in His mouth and DOES everything God orders Him to do. So Jesus is a PROPHET above all prophets because He is Witness of God, Firstborn of all creation. Though some deny the Lord Jesus Who bought them with His Precious Blood, and bring upon themselves swift destruction, the Christians in first century CE and Jews KNOW Jesus is The TRUE PROPHET Son of God above all prophets. The Gospel of John states Jews of Jesus’ time asked if Jesus was a prophet and John said, Jesus is GREATER than any PROPHET. In Acts 3:18-22 Peter confirms Jesus is the True fulfillment so Promised MESSIAH on the day of Pentecost. Moses taught the law and Elijah prepared the people to be loyal to God.
The law was given to Moses as salvation was restored in Elijah to fulfil prophecy through Jesus for a number of reasons. Moses and Elijah have been “dead” for quite a while: Moses (about 1200-1600 years), Elijah (800 years). How is it that they can appear? Where have they been? How did the disciples recognize them as Moses and Elijah? The Bible says that their appearance confirms astounding testimony to the divinity of Jesus Christ. Moses represents “the Law” Moses as the giver of the Law in Old Testament. Elijah represents the greatest of great Prophets in the Old Testament. Both are summoned by Jesus and show up. These two Old Testament figures heard God’s voice. Moses in Exodus 24:18, 1 Kings 19:-18. Now, they get to talk to Him Face to face. Moses and Elijah are given the beautiful gift of seeing God face to face and as they converse with Jesus. After a long wait, Moses and Elijah are able to witness the Divine Plan of Salvation History, in which they themselves have played key roles, is coming to fruition. Again the witnesses recognised them and Peter wanted to build 3 booths for them to remain on the mountain top. The Glorified bodies of Moses and Elijah will return physically from heaven to dwell on earth to evangelise people. Ezekiel 7:26-27 reveals God WILL RESTORE HIS COVENANT OF PEACE in Christ, PRINCE OF PEACE by everlasting covenant. Earth will enjoy Perfect peace and God WILL increase the number of HIS CHILDREN WHO LOVE HIM. And God WILL set HIS Sanctuary among us in Zion forever. God’s DWELLING PLACE will be here on earth as Yahweh God’s people.” Isaiah 1:26 says God WILL restore judges as at first and counsellors as in the beginning. Afterwards Zion shall be called a City of Righteousness, Faithful City established.
Jesus Will Reign on earth as KING, and the leaders of other nations will look to Him for guidance says Isaiah’s 2:4. Then the whole world will WORSHIP the One God of Israel says Isaiah 2:11-17. So Jesus the True Descendant from King David in Isaiah 11:1 and 1 Chronicles 22:8-10, 2 Chronicles 7:18 confirm Jesus as King on David’s throne. God Appointed Jesus to Rule and Reign in HIS PLACE since HE was rejected by mankind. God does not to want to interfere in mankind’s freewill choices so honours HIS WORD by letting mankind learn the hard way as all loving Fathers reluctantly allow the permissive will of their rebellious stubborn family membersebers. God receives back HIS Children willing to submit to HIS RULE through Jesus. The “SPIRIT of the LORD is upon MESSIAH JESUS so He Honours and Reveres God says Isaiah 12:2. Evil and tyranny will not be able to stand before Jesus’ leadership according to Isaiah 11:4. Jesus PHYSICAL PRESENCE and Excellent leadership Knowledge of God will fill the world says Isaiah 11:9.
Consequentially, Jesus Will include and attract all people from all cultures and nations in Isaiah 11:10. All Israelites will RETURN to their homeland, Isaiah11:12. Death will be swallowed up forever says Isaiah 25:8. And there will be no more hunger or illness, and death will cease in Isaiah 25:8. All the dead people will rise again according to Isaiah’s 26:19. The Jews and Gentiles will then experience eternal joy and gladness in Isaiah 51:11. The MESSIAH brings PERFECT PEACE in Isaiah’s 52:7 so Nations will recognize the wrongs they did to Israel in Isaiah 52:13-53:5. The people of the world will turn to the Jews for spiritual guidance according to Zachariah 8:23. Ruined cities of Israel will be restored in Ezekiel 16;16:55 and the weapons of war will be destroyed in Ezekiel’s 39:9. The people of Israel will have direct access to the Torah through their minds through the wisdom of God’s Words written on their heart. Knowledge of God abounds so no man needs to teach his neighbour to know God in Jeremiah 31:33. The great evangelism of Moses and Elijah yields countless souls saved from all nations, tribes, languages, countries as people join the Kingdom of God.
The great reunion of the two prophets on earth is in the final stages of redemption by God to save mankind. This is taking place on earth signified by the events on the earth. Simultaneously world events culminates in the battle of Armageddon. Life continues in some parts of the world as normal as possible although each one is feeling the transformation taking place in one way or another. Jesus Said, many continue business as usual, buying and selling, marrying and getting married but when people shout peace peace there is sudden destruction. Until Son of God Yeshua Comes to Restore Perfect Peace to change life for the better. Heed GOD’S Mercy, Grace and Compassion Now to be saved. Proverbs 3:7-8 says, Be not wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD, turn away from evil for healing to your flesh and refreshment to your bones. Jesus Said, as in the days of Noah people were eating and drinking, partying until the flood came to kill them all. They mocked and ignored God’s warnings through Noah until it was too late. In the same way God is dealing with mankind to root out evil once and for all through Jesus. Moses and Elijah will return to preach salvation to rescue people as in the days of Noah when his family of eight were saved. And 144,000 Jews of 12,000 x 12 tribes will be saved through the 2 witnesses. They in turn preach so Israel will be saved.
In 2 Peter chapter 1:16-21, Peter said we make known to you the POWER and the Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ as His eyewitnesses of His MAJESTY. 17 For He received from God the Father, HONOUR, GLORY as God’s VOICE Came to Yeshua, His Excellent GLORY SAYING, This IS MY BELOVED SON IN Whom I AM Well pleased. 18 God’s VOICE came from heaven as we heard, when we were with Yeshua on the HOLY Mount. 19 We have a more sure word of prophecy to you so do well and take heed, as a Light Shines in a dark place until day dawns and the DAY STAR ARISES in your hearts. And so 20 Knowing this first that no prophecy of the Scripture is private interpretation. 21 PROPHECY comes not by will of man but HOLY men of God speak as they were moved by the Holy Ghost SPIRIT of God.
These two prophets will return in living history to prepare the way for the Return of Jesus physically back to earth to Rule as KING of Kings. Jesus Answers prayers of all who HOPE and Trust in Him to give them worthy desires of their heart in Psalm 37:4. On RETURN Jesus takes the barren lands and makes it abundant and fruitful in Isaiah 11:6-9, and 51:3, Amos 9:13-15, Ezekiel 36:29-30. The New Testament is fulfilled by Isaiah 53 prophecy of Jesus the Messiah. Coming from the Book of Acts, God’s Commands Philip to speak to the African Ethiopian eunuch sitting in a chariot, reading aloud to himself Book of Isaiah. The eunuch comments he did not understand what he read in Isaiah 53. So Philip explains to him the passage refers to JESUS. The eunuch asked Philip which prophet is mentioned here in Isaiah 53? And Philip answered from Scripture and preached to him saying the text refers to Jesus.” This accurate standard Christian interpretation of Isaiah 53 passage from Apostolic times confirmed Jesus as God promised that all who call upon God in Jesus Name will be saved. So everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved as God sent salvation through Jesus’ to Return to Rule from Mount Zion in Jerusalem so there will be deliverance, as the LORD God Said, among survivors the Lord Calls in Joel 2:32, Romans 10:13.
World events show these are the days of Elijah declaring the word of the Lord like Moses Righteousness is being restored to deliver mankind from sin. Great trials of famine, darkness and sword are part of these struggles to wrench mankind from evil. Despite the challenges there is hope for total SALVATION through Moses and Elijah once again God DELIVERS people on earth. Moses and Elijah are the voices now urging people to repent to serve God wholeheartedly in Jesus Name. This is a critical GodSent moment in time to take God extremely seriously before it is too late. The Tribulation is transitioning to great Tribulation right before our eyes as untold world events take unseen shape. Jesus said world events will be traumatic as unseen before and never again will be seen as these things unfold in the world. In spite of the chaos and mayhem, Jesus Says those in Christ REJOICE because His salvation is near, so close right in front of the door. Essentially one must look up to God for sudden change Intervention by Rapture when Jesus appears in cloud.
The primary viewpoint on the identity of the two witnesses in Revelation 11:3-22 is Moses and Elijah or Enoch and Elijah. Others think they may be two unknown believers God calls to be HIS witnesses in the end times. Moses and Elijah are seen as possibilities for the two witnesses due to the witnesses’ power to turn water to blood in Revelations 11:6, which Moses is known for in Exodus chapter 7, and their power to destroy people with fire of God in Revelations 11:5 as Elijah is known for in 2 Kings chapter 1. Giving strength to this view is the fact that Moses, Elijah appeared with Jesus in transfiguration in Matthew 17:3-4. Furthermore the Jewish tradition expects Moses and Elijah daily to return on earth. Malachi 4:5 predicts the return of Elijah and the Jews believe God’s promise to raise up a prophet like Moses in Deuteronomy 18:15,18 in Bible necessitates his return. So God Knows exactly whom to send including Peter among others raised from death. The most important thing to do is to live in readiness for God in Christ daily. God is Good to believers in Christ and so spares the gory details of the great tribulation. As in the days of Noah when flood came and only 8 people were saved on earth so similarly, before wrath of God unleashes for punishment. Saints in Christ will be saved by Rapture into heaven suddenly.
When live translation takes place people start flying upwards in droves at a sound of trumpets by the angels from heaven accompanying Jesus in cloud. Afterwards there will be peace at first as antiChrist sets up his rule. When Jesus removes the saints from the world during the Rapture there will be the 3 years of peace. During this time, horrible disasters and signs from heaven follow the beginning of time of sorrows. These last 3 years will be horrifying as never known before as God pours his wrath on humanity during the great Tribulation. The wicked who reject God so harassed HIS Children will be punished by death. This is the final warning to humanity to be saved or forever lost in hellfire at the Second Coming of Christ for judgement. Jesus will gather the wheat saved by the two evangelists into the New JERUSALEM on earth during His Millennial Reign into GOD’S KINGDOM and tares into the lake of fire. Events happen according to Luke 17:35-36 to purge earth of evil once and for all so the PERFECT Rule of God from heaven is on earth after Jacob’s trouble. God’s Favours Gentiles by grafting them with the Jews as the Christian believers too recognise Jesus as SAVIOUR among Messianic Jews since the time of Jesus. When the time of the Gentiles ends all Israel shall be saved. Many Jews believe in Second Coming of Jesus but some do not and Jesus already warned of such so Trust personally in God for your own salvation based on Christian Bible given by the trustworthy reliable eye witnesses of Jesus TESTIMONY. Jeremiah 30:7 in Bible says, Alas that day is great so none is like it before, it is the time of Jacob’s trouble he shall be SAVED out of it. Right in the midst of Israel’s greatest adversity and tragedy SALVATION comes to Jacob called Israel. Jesus a Jew is God’s Chosen Holy Vessel of Honour for the judgement starting with Jews first then all nations. Jacob’s trouble includes the whole world tagged to Israel as seen in current events globally Jesus footsteps are almost heard at the door.
“And a redeemer will come to Tzion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Yaakov, saith the LORD.” Isaiah 59:20 (The Israel Bible™)
