There seems to be a great deal of controversy over who the two witnesses are in the Apocalypse. They really are very mysterious figures and are likened to furniture found in the Holy Place of the Temple. Many people today look for them to arise shortly before the end of time (something the Bible never mentions), and they are supposed to figure prominently in a battle against a figure known as Antichrist (again something which the Bible never mentions—at least not in the context of modern interpreters). Some even believe Moses and Elijah are the witnesses and they will return to life.

They also express a time of political upheaval, when kingdoms tumble to their ruin (cf. Isaiah 24:19-23; Haggai 2:6-7, 21-22; Hebrews 12:26-27). Read the rest of this entry »
