Who are the Two Witnesses?
                    Revelation 11: 1-14

1  Then I was given a reed like a measuring rod. And the angel
   stood, saying, "Rise and measure the temple of God, the 
   altar, and those who worship there.
2  "But leave out the court which is outside the temple, and
   do not measure it, for it has been given to the Gentiles.
   And they will tread the holy city underfoot for forty-two
3  "And I will give power to my two witnesses, and they will
   prophesy one thousand two hundred and sixty days, clothed
   in sackcloth."
4  These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands 
   standing before the God of the earth.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 them.
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.
13 In the same hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth
   of the city fell. In the earthquake seven thousand people 
   were killed, and the rest were afraid and gave glory to the 
   God of heaven.
14 The second woe is past. Behold, the third woe is coming 

         Two come from out of heaven down to earth.

   Anyone that wants to harm them will be killed by fire that
                comes out of their mouths.

   These two have the power to call down every kind of plague
                  as often as they want.

    Then the Beast comes up out of the Abyss and kills them.

    They lay in the streets for 3-1/2 days...then the breath
    of life from God enters them and a loud voice from heaven
                  says: "Come up here!"

         Who are these two witnesses??

           Question: Can you kill an angel?
                      Answer: NO!

 Question: Which two people who live BEFORE Jesus have not
                       died yet?

               Answer: ENOCH & ELIJAH

                     2 Kings 2:11

  Then it happened, as they continued on and talked, that
  suddenly a chariot of fire appeared with horses of fire, and
  seperated the two of them; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind
  into heaven.

                     Genesis 5:24
  And Enoch walked with God; and he was not, for God took him.


                     Hebrews 9:27
  And as it is appointed for men to die once, but after this 
                    the judgement.

 The Two Witnesses who were taken into heaven have to be brought
              back into this world to die.

   The Two that were taken into heaven were Enoch and Elijah.
