Two Witnesses Alive Today

"And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for 1,260 days." If the two witnesses spoken of in Revelation are to be of majority age, is it possible that they are alive on earth today? What is your opinion, guess, conjecture?

Moderator - Yes. I am training my two sons to be evangelists as we speak :)

The two witnesses are the written Word and the spoken Word, they are one, and they are alive today. They are the Faithful Witness.

The Two Witnesses are the Old Testament and the New Testament that speaks of Christ the Word John 1:1..The Word made flesh John 1:14

If you read that passage carefully, it says that they CAN do miracles, and have fire come from their mouth(which means that God will kill them, if others try and touch the witness)...It never says that they WILL do those things, jsut says that they CAN, and if their were only 2 people alive who are pretty significant characters in the end times, i'm pretty sure they WILL do those things, but a group of people some will do it, some wont even though they have the power...(i hope this makes sense)
---mark on 3/24/07


I agree Mark. What better way to start a worldwide soul harvest than to have one Jew (Elijah) and one Gentile (Enoch) as the two witnesses.

---Bob54 on 3/24/07


Well as it is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgement. It would aappear the the two would be Elijah and Enoch. as neither of those have tasted death as of yet.
---MARK on 3/22/07




I think that the 2 witnesses, are going to be groups of people, not just a single person...
---mark on 3/22/07


For those interested: the Bible tells us the indentity of one of the two witnesses in Malachi 4:5; that being Elijah.
---Bob54 on 3/22/07


I believe that the Two Wittnesses are here today and that they are in fact human and also that they know who they are. I'm sure that it is quite a burdon to carry. So might i suggest for people to stop trying to guess who they are and pray for them instead. I do believe that they'll need the prayers of God's children.
---David on 3/17/07


I fear what will really happen when tribulation comes. The church will still be here until Christ's 2nd coming. The church will be upset for having to go through tribulation because of the false doctrine that has crept into the church. Satan will make Christians believe He has forgotten them, while all along they were not to be called up unto Christ's second coming.
---Jacob on 1/6/07


2 witnesses are the Old and New Testament...they work with each other and one cant do away with the other...The Old Points to the coming of Christ to die for our salvation, and the New prepares His people for His glorious return to take His obedient children home. These two witnesses, The Word of God the Bible, is the one and only most popular book still being sold today.

I'm pretty sure the 2 witnesses are going to be 2 groups of christians (gentile christians, jewish christians) the 2 lampstands( i'm a light for jesus am i on the lampstand in heaven??) then it says that they will be able to do all these signs and wonders but i never says that they will (God has all given us this kind of authority but not all know what or how to??)
---mark on 12/15/06


I believe they are. And I believe they will have new prophecies for the church. Perhaps, since God said it is easier for Heaven and earth to pass away than for any of His Holy Words to pass away, and since we are still here, then the thought to be lost: Epistle from Laodicea, wasn't meant to come from the geographical area of Paul's time, but it is a final letter that is given to God's children from the witnesses who will belong to the Laodicean Church of the end!

(2) Bibles (light) were banned, but God's people preserved it from the wilderness. The olive tree and candlesticks (Rev 11:4) both contain oil - the symbol of the Holy Spirit. The Bible is the only spirit-filled book. Therefore, the Two Witnesses are the Old and New Testaments.
---jerry6593 on 12/2/06


(1) The key to understanding the two witnesses is to be found in the historical time frame of the 1260 days mentioned in Rev 11:3. It is the same period as the time, times and 1/2 time of Rev 12:14. (A time = 1 year, times = 2years, 1/2 time = 1/2 year. A Hebrew year = 360 days.) These represent the 1260 year period (538 -1798 AD) of Papal persecution called the Dark Ages.

Thanks mudflap, I stay on this computer too long at times & get a little weary like that fellah Moses did when he smote "The Rock", & "That Rock" in the flesh himself showed a little righteous anger by "turning out" the Temple flea market. Haven't used mudflaps in a long, long time, lol.

The two witnesses the two olive trees are ministries in the Spirit of John the Baptist and Jesus one points the way to Jesus by evangelism the other leads and makes disciples, this has always been the way the Spirit has worked like Elijah who can prove who God is through his witness and Moses a saviour,teacher, and mediator.

steve, what debate? Never said Moses didn't die. Representing The Meek Messiah, he had to die! Joshua, replacing Moses, took Israel UP INTO their promised land. A ressurected Christ did/will do again as His appearance/garments show in Rev.1: >. Passssing Over" earth, leading His people [Church] into Heaven before we return to earth with Him to conquer/rule 1,000 years [Jude 14-15]. OK! Scriptures speak for themselves, Enoch & Elijah never tasted physical death [Heb.9:27, Rev.11:3-14].
---bob6749_[Elishama] on 11/30/06


cont: Besides steve, I don't see any debates in the prior posts, just statements, belief's, scriptural or not. I posted my response "to the question", you read it, reading something into it I never said or indicated, labelling it as [duh] debate. II Tim.2:14-15. I guess you'll also say that Joshua/Yoshua has no relevence to Jesus/Yeshua [Salvation] either, as the continuation of, & looked for Christ The Conquerer? Heb.4:9-16, 10:1-14.
---bob6749_[Elishama] on 11/30/06


Bob: Moses is dead. God buried him Himself.

Besides, this is a frivolous debate. We will know soon enough who the witnesses will be.
---Steveng on 11/30/06


The witnesses in question, are alive in Heaven, one from this side of "Noah's Flood" [II Kings 2:1-13], & one from the other side [Gen.5:18,21-24; Jude 14-15,16-25]. Cp.Heb.9:27.

Moses on "The Mount Of Transfiguration", represented The [Jewish] Law, Elijah, The Jewish prophets. G_d spoke to the disciples in Matt.17:1-(*5)8; *"This is my beloved son ... hear Him". Paraphrased, "you've had The Law & Prophets, now you have My Son, hear Him (v.8)".

The holy spirit is very aggressive and determined when someone is prepared to obtain "the Good".It has a form, it has substance,and occupies you and releases out of your body this old spirit who is retired for the greater good. This new occupying spirit begins his work immediately and undertakes tasks that seem impossible to man, but successful in their application and benefit. There are three of them who carry out their tasks without mercy against the darkness. They know one another...
---summer on 11/30/06


from reading the discussion between Kay and Steveng. I'd have to say this is pretty entertaining. But Unfortuatly I agree with Steven, sorry Kay. many people rely on their traditions so much in interpereting the scripture that they forget to let the scripture speak. this is what the Jews did in Jesus' day. and it is what is happening Now.
---Jared on 11/29/06


Yes, definetley the two witnesses are alive today. They are being prepared for the work of their ministry which God has before ordained in this end times for them to fulfill.

Every man of God with any high calling such as these two witnesses must receive the unction from the Lord of the work he called them to do. Surely these men have been revealed to from God that they are coming to fulfill the message and prophecy, even as it is written of them to do to fulfill (Rev 11:3 - 12.

But there is only one way to study the Bible - You, the Bible and the Holy Spirit; mixed with a little reading and a whole lot of meditation and pondering. Just like the Bible says to do it. No concordanances, no Christian dictionaries, no novels, no other reference books.

Kay, you are absolutely correct in the way you study and the explanations you gave Steven. There is many ways to study but I find that reading each passage word for word and finding out what is really happening at that time and to whom are the words spoken to, gives me a real insight as to what is meant in the whole of the context.

Anyway, so you're an artist. I guess we aren't that different after all.
---Kay on 11/25/06


I believe we all observe the small details. It's interesting and startling what comes through the blogs. Many/most of us have discernment. The intentions behind the words come blasting through.
---Shiela on 11/24/06


Kay: I'm not bragging, as a writer and an artist I observe details. It's the small things that tells a lot about a person - their mannerisms, their speech, the words they choose, their attitude about the world around them - a whole buch of little things.

And after teaching only 5 years at a local elementary school, I'm able to recognize a show off who thinks he knows more about you than you know about yourself simply due to his fantasy education.

Hey, didn't you condemn me for having so called "worldly" knowledge? Oh, not cool! Look at you, Mister!

P.S. I'm beginning to really like you! :)


---Kay on 11/24/06


Both witnesses are alive. I guess I should know since I am one of them. We have been around for over 3,000 years actually. If you really study the word "witness" in greek you would realize that it means that we are witnesses to gods plan and the word is plural meaning there are many of us. Each time 1 of us dies the memories of the previous lampstands is passed through dreams to the next one. Though I admit there will eventually be 2 men who do everything that is written in revelations.
---witness on 11/24/06


The Two witnesses are Enoch Heb 11:5, and Elijah, 2 Kings 2:11. So Steveng, what you said about Enoch and Elijah being dead, not so. They have never seen death. They will be the two witnesses because they have to come to the earth and witness, then they will be murdered, and die. It is all in the book of Revelation.
---Rebecca_D on 11/23/06

"However, verses, studied alone can be very insightful"

I study verse by verse, meaning the entire passage. Then I compare it to other passages that relate to the subject being studied. For some reason Steveng thinks my method isn't a good one.
---Kay on 11/21/06


I think it all started when I found a few passages that contradicted Steveng's theory. Then all of a sudden he opposed my method of study and refused to share scriptures with me to help me understand his view. I don't understand why he refuses to share with me what he knows regarding the Tribulation. I'm interested in learning new things. But I can't force it out of him so I'll just drop it. Steveng, if you change your mind, I'm all ears..or should I say all eyes? :)

Okebaram: I know how Kay thinks. I've read hundreds of her posts in many of the blogs. I have this gift of interpretation.

Kay: "...a particular way of studying?" I once tried to understand the Bible using worldly knowledge. But twenty-five years ago, I read/studied/meditated on the word of God through the eyes of a child, uninhibited by my adult knowledge - without concordances, dictionaries, novels, man's interpretations, or other Christian reference books. Don't get me wrong, I did have a lot of help from Chritians elders. But there needs to be a time for a person to go into the world like a child when grown.

It's wonderful how a person can truly depend on the Holy Spirit for guidance and understanding. Remember the apostles learned from Jesus for only three years and then went out into the world without script.

Its also fascinating when ten children see a verse in the bible the same way, but how ten adults interpret the same verse ten different ways.
---Steveng on 11/21/06


Steveng, from my understanding of Kay's comment, she isn't saying that she does not compare verses in order to get full context.
---Okebaram on 11/21/06


Kay, I think what Steveng is bugged about is the fact that some people pull out verses and misapply them to suite their wrong theological needs, deviatying from the actual information delivered by that verse that is could be understood from the rest of the passage. However, verses, studied alone can be very insightful, even in ways that may not be directly implied by the context, as long as they are interpreted correctly, for which purpose God has given us the Holy Ghost.
---Okebaram on 11/21/06


Steveng, what does that have to do with anything? My point was, in order for me to better understand a particular teaching in the Bible I study that teaching verse by verse. Even if our Bibles today didn't have verses I would still break it down in order to get a better understanding of whats being said. Thats how I prefer to study.

"Do you write letters to your friends in verses?"

Steveng dear, what does this have to do with my personal method of study? Do you have a particular way of studying?
---Kay on 11/20/06


The people in Jesus' time didn't have verses in their Bible (Torah). It's the verses that get that get interpretated differently. If you read the OT without the verse number, you'll come out with a completely set of ideas - the right ones. If you read the Gospels and the letters without verses, you'll truly get the whole picture.

Do you write letters to your friends in verses?
---Steveng on 11/19/06


Steveng, you are tap dancing around my question. Please point out from the Bible where it states that no one will have a clue as to what is going on prior and during the Tribulation. I think if someone is claiming to be the Almighty God and forcing THE ENTIRE WORLD to worship him or die would be pretty obvious to many that he's the Anti-Christ.
---Kay on 11/19/06


Steveng, without studying verse by verse I wouldn't be able to understand the whole picture. You can't just grab one or two verses and claim that you fully understand the entire message thats being communicated. This is why many people are confused about whether or not Christians are to observe the Law of Moses. They take one or two verses where God is speaking to Israel and think that God is speaking to the entire human race. We can't do that. Context! Context! Context!

Kay: You need to step back from the verse by verse and look at the whole picture. You are looking too much at the individual trees and not see the forest. The information you seek are many chapters long and includes the entire Bible.

There were over 300 prophesies in the OT about Jesus, but yet his own people didn't see it. The same thing with today's Christians. Most will read the prophesies, but most will not understand.

BTW, why were the Israelites chosen to be God's people?
---Steveng on 11/18/06


Steveng, then why haven't you given me the scriptures stating that prior to and during the Tribulation period no one will have a clue as to what is going on? If I'm so much in the dark, why aren't you shedding some light?
---Kay on 11/18/06


Steveng, what I find in the Bible is just the opposite. Jesus described the events leading up to the Tribulation and the events that will take place during. In Matthew 24:25 Jesus says "Behold, I have told you before." Then in verse 33 Jesus says "So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors." Then in 2 Thessalonians 2:5 says "Remember ye not,that,when I was yet with you,I told you these things?" Jesus didn't leave us clueless.

"Maybe do a little more studying mixed with a little meditation and the Holy Spirit."

You always say this when you don't have any scriptures to back up your belief. Come on, Steveng! ;)

"If you need to ask such a question, I pray that your eyes will open soon, very soon, and see what's happening past the end of your nose."

Steveng, I asked such a question because I can't seem to find your theory in the Bible. Jesus describes the events leading up to the Tribulation and the events that will take place during the Tribulation. Anyone with a good amount of biblical knowledge will know whats going on. You speak as if we are in the Tribulation period right now. We aren't.
---Kay on 11/17/06


**Assuming the Tribulation period is near enough, shouldn't the witnesses currently be alive?**

That's a mighty big assumption. As I understand the Scriptures, we're not supposed to be assuming the Parousia is near.

** Or do you suppose they will drop down from heaven like Moses and Elijah did in Jesus' transfiguration?**

The two witnesses are Enoch and Elijah who never died, but were translated while still alive. They will be killed by Antichrist and raised 3 days later.

Because we are people, plain and simple. The Bible is full of stories about people who turned their backs against God, even God's own people, and we are no different because we are people. And if you think you are so vain to think that because someone says Lord, Lord you know if we are walking in your tribulation?

If you need to ask such a question, I pray that your eyes will open soon, very soon, and see what's happening past the end of your nose.
