Bible Prophecy Teaching: The Two Witnesses that Come at the Beginning of the Seven Year Tribulation
The Word of God teaches us of two witnesses that are sent by GOD from Heaven to Jerusalem at the beginning of the seven year tribulation on the earth. These two witnesses will prophesied to the world from the Great City of Jerusalem the ancient capital of !srael for a period of " #$% years or &% months before they are 'illed by the coming (ntichrist )*east of +evelation, who enters a newly rebuilt Jewish Temple )the third temple, and declares to the world that he is God. (fter three and one-half days GOD (/!GHT0 breaths new life into His two witnesses and raises them bac' to life and then as the whole world watches and trembles in fear1 these two mighty men of GOD will be caught up in the air to be reunited with GOD in Heaven.
There has been a lot of debate amongst Biblical scholars over the decades as to who these two witnesses will be. Some believe that the two witnesses will be oses and !li"ah# because these two men were spo$en of much throughout Scripture. %thers believe that these two witnesses will be !noch and !li"ah# because these two prophets were both raptured up to &eaven without having e'perienced a physical death before they were ta$en to &eaven. Both arguments cannot be right# but one of these two arguments does have more merit than the other has to proving "ust e'actly who these two witnesses are.The idea that the two witnesses will be oses and !li"ah doesn(t add up# because of one simple reason) and that reason is because oses had e'perienced a physical death once already and according to The Word of *%+ cannot e'perience a physical death a second time. ,et(s read together what T&! W%-+ % *%+ proclaims to us regarding physical death:&ebrews /:0123nd as it is appointed unto men once to die# but after this the "udgment:2 or *%+ to send oses bac$ to the earth to be one of the two witnesses that will appear at the beginning of the seven year tribulation period# would mean that oses would have to die a physical death a second time# and this would ma$e *%+ a liar# which *%+ isn(t a liar. -ead along with me to prove this point:alachi 4:5
