The mainstream teaching on the two witnesses of Revelation teaches that they will be literal people sent down from heaven to preach to the world for a literal 1260 days or 3 and a half years. And the mainstream view is that the two last day witnesses will be either Moses, Enoch or Elijah. But here I do not follow the crowd, I follow the truth, wether it is popular or not. Now one thing we must remember when studying the book of Revelation is that it is full of symbolic languages. So we are to automatically take everything as literal.
Who are the beast of Revelation 13? Are they literal beast forcing people to take the mark? Who is the whore of Babylon? Is it a literal woman riding a literal beast? No, they are symbolic, and point to something else, just like a lot of Revelation does.
Let's start off by exposing a couple of BIG problems with this mainstream view of Moses, Elijah or Enoch being the two witnesses. Where are Moses, Enoch and Elijah right now? The are in heaven with God and Jesus Christ right? So what does that mean? It means they are now in their glorified IMMORTAL state.
Please understand that important point. No one can dwell in heaven, in the precense of Jesus and God the Father without being in a glorified immortal state. And yet what does Revelation 11 say will happen to the two witnesses? Revelation 11:7-8. Read.
So Revelation confims that the last days two witnesses will be KILLED. This proves beyond doubt that the witnesses CANNOT be either Moses, Enoch or Elijah, because they are now immortal and cannot be killed.
