special purpose: They will be the two witnesses for the Lamb’s

wedding (which will occur on/or near Tishri 1,

37

or Rosh

HaShanah). So it appears that they will rise at that time (Rev.

11:11-15).

It has long been speculated that these two witnesses are ei-

ther Elijah and Enoch, or Elijah and Moses. Since Enoch was

not Jewish, this leaves Elijah and Moses as the two witnesses.

At Christ’s transfiguration, in preview of the Son of God com-

ing in His royal splendor, it was Moses and Elijah who were

with Him (Matt. 17:3). It is interesting to note (v. 1) that the

transfiguration occurred “after 6 days.” This lines up with God

coming, at His revelation, after six days of man’s week.

Moses and Elijah represented not only the law and the

prophets, but those who are to be resurrected

and translated

as they were. (As Enoch never died, so shall some living today

never die!)

In Psalm 45, the King is spoken of; toward the end of the

chapter we see the royal bride in gold of Ophir (v. 9). Here we

have the association of a king with a kingdom, and his bride

with his wedding.

God sent the archangel Michael to retrieve the body of Moses (Jude 9).

Moses was resurrected so that the devil could not use his bones to set up a

shrine for the Jews to worship, since Moses was thought of as being higher

than the angels. This is why the author of Hebrews used the comparison of

Jesus being greater than Moses (Heb. 3:3), after saying Christ was greater

than the angels (Heb. 1:4).
