Who will be the Two Witnesses of the last days? 

 

Our research shows this to be types and shadows of Moses and Elijah (the law and the prophets) 

Another good reseacher also makes a great case for it being Ezekiel and John the apostle.

This passage from Mark also occurred during the fall feast of the Lord which is a time frame for the Lord's second coming.

Second coming prophecy of Messiah Yeshua from Isaiah 11:11-12

Isaiah 11:11 It shall come to pass in that day That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left, From Assyria and Egypt, From Pathros and Cush, From Elam and Shinar, From Hamath and the islands of the sea.
Isaiah 11:12 He will set up a banner for the nations, And will assemble the outcasts of Israel, And gather together the dispersed of Judah From the four corners of the earth.

This passage from Mark also occurred during the fall feast of the Lord which is the time frame for the Lord's second coming.

Mark 9:4 during the time of Sukkoth

Mark 9:4 And there appeared unto them Elias with Moses: and they were talking with Yeshua.
Mark 9:5 And Peter answered and said to Yeshua, Master, it is good for us to be here: and let us make three tabernacles; one for thee, and one for Moses, and one for Elijah.

Why Moses and Elijah? Moses represents the law and Elijah represents the prophets 

Matthew 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.

The Two Witnesses from Revelation 11

Revelation 11:3 "And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth."
Rev 11:4 These are the two olive trees and the two lamp stands standing before the God of the earth.
Revelation 11:5 And if anyone wants to harm them, fire proceeds from their mouth and devours their enemies. And if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this manner.
Revelation 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.
Revelation 11:7 When they finish their testimony, the beast that ascends out of the bottomless pit will make war against them, overcome them, and kill them.
Revelation 11:8 And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified.
Revelation 11:9 Then those from the peoples, tribes, tongues, and nations will see their dead bodies three-and-a-half days, and not allow their dead bodies to be put into graves.
Revelation 11:10 And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them, make merry, and send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth.
Revelation 11:11 Now after the three-and-a-half days the breath of life from God entered them, and they stood on their feet, and great fear fell on those who saw them.
Revelation 11:12 And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." And they ascended to heaven in a cloud, and their enemies saw them.


No rain reference from Revelation 11:6

Revelation 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, so that no rain falls in the days of their prophecy; and they have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to strike the earth with all plagues, as often as they desire.

We also see similar passages about no rain

Luke 4:25 "But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land;

James 5:17 Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months.

1Kings 8:35 "When the heavens are shut up and there is no rain because they have sinned against You, when they pray toward this place and confess Your name, and turn from their sin because You afflict them,

2 Chronicles 7-17

2Chronicles 7:12Then the LORD appeared to Solomon by night, and said to him: "I have heard your prayer, and have chosen this place for Myself as a house of sacrifice.
2Chronicles 7:13"When I shut up heaven and there is no rain, or command the locusts to devour the land, or send pestilence among My people,
2Chronicles 7:14"if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
2Chronicles 7:15"Now My eyes will be open and My ears attentive to prayer made in this place.
2Chronicles 7:16"For now I have chosen and sanctified this house, that My name may be there forever; and My eyes and My heart will be there perpetually.
2Chronicles 7:17"As for you, if you walk before Me as your father David walked, and do according to all that I have commanded you, and if you keep My statutes and My judgments

Zechariah 14:16-18

Zechariah 14:16And it shall come to pass that everyone who is left of all the nations which came against Jerusalem shall go up from year to year to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, and to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.
Zechariah 14:17And it shall be that whichever of the families of the earth do not come up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the LORD of hosts, on them there will be no rain.
Zechariah 14:18If the family of Egypt will not come up and enter in, they shall have no rain; they shall receive the plague with which the LORD strikes the nations who do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.
Zechariah 14:19This shall be the punishment of Egypt and the punishment of all the nations that do not come up to keep the Feast of Tabernacles.

Part of why a no rain judgment vs. lots of rain. 

Genesis 9:11 "Thus I establish My covenant with you: Never again shall all flesh be cut off by the waters of the flood; never again shall there be a flood to destroy the earth."
Genesis 9:12 And God said: "This is the sign of the covenant which I make between Me and you, and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations:
Genesis 9:13 "I set My rainbow in the cloud, and it shall be for the sign of the covenant between Me and the earth.

The rainbow belongs to God and it's His promise!

Other last days insights.  Judah and Ephraim / Prophecy of the two sticks becoming one before the Lord

Ezekiel 37:15Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
Ezekiel 37:16"As for you, son of man, take a stick for yourself and write on it: 'For Judah and for the children of Israel, his companions.' Then take another stick and write on it, 'For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for all the house of Israel, his companions.'

Isaiah 11:11 It shall come to pass in that day That the Lord shall set His hand again the second time To recover the remnant of His people who are left, From Assyria and Egypt, From Pathros and Cush, From Elam and Shinar, From Hamath and the islands of the sea.

 "THE BREAKERAND THE KING  

 Micah 2:13

The breaker goes up before them; They break out, pass through the gate and go out by it. So their king goes on before them, And the LORD at their head."

Elijah 

Malachi 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the LORD:
Malachi 4:6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers, lest I come and smite the earth with a curse.


Here in Luke we read about the Lord's calling upon John the Baptist before he was born. 

Luke 1:11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of altar of incense.
Luke 1:12 And Zacharias was troubled when he saw him, and fear fell upon him.
Luke 1:13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: because thy supplication is heard, and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
Luke 1:14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
Luke 1:15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and he shall drink no wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother's womb.
Luke 1:16 And many of the children of Israel shall be turn unto the Lord their God.
Luke 1:17 And he shall go before his face in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to walk in the wisdom of the just; to make ready for the Lord a people prepared for him.

Our Lord Jesus Christ even called John the Baptist to be prophesized Elijah, this was for our Lord Jesus first coming!  

Matthew 11:12 And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
Matthew 11:13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.
Matthew 11:14 And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come.
Matthew 11:15 He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.

 Why is this night like no other night! 

This is a classic line "as taught" during the Passover Seder dinner that EVERYONE is commanded to keep!  

Exodus 13:6 Seven days thou shalt eat unleavened bread, and in the seventh day shall be a feast to the LORD.
Exodus 13:7 Unleavened bread shall be eaten seven days; and there shall no leavened bread be seen with thee, neither shall there be leaven seen with thee in all thy quarters.
Exodus 13:8 And thou shalt shew thy son in that day, saying, This is done because of that which the LORD did unto me when I came forth out of Egypt.
Exodus 13:9 And it shall be for a sign unto thee upon thine hand, and for a memorial between thine eyes, that the LORD'S law may be in thy mouth: for with a strong hand hath the LORD brought thee out of Egypt.
Exodus 13:10 Thou shalt therefore keep this ordinance in his season from year to year.


 The telling of the Haggadah during the Passover Seder

The word Haggadah comes from the Torah command - "And you shall tell (v'Higadeta) your children on that day..." 

Which is the story of the Exodus and the ritual of the Seder, read at the Passover Seder.

Our Lord Jesus kept the Passover Seder and taught and shared this story at His Passover Seder and preformed the ceremonial washing. 

You can read about Jesus performing the ceremonial washing  in John 13

You can look at Egypt as being a type or shadow "as the pagan world" and the Lord's plan of redemption, through His blood  we are set free for those look upon Him for deliverance and Salvation!

I bring this up because there is a teaching reference to Elijah during the course of the Passover Seder dinner!

The "cup of Elijah" is known as the 5th cup!
