End Time Events

Elijah's Return

Bible prophecy is particularly relevant or appropriate for today. The things that our Lord spoke of in the 24th chapter of Matthew, all seem to be growing in frequency and intensity, just as Jesus said they would. Evidence keeps mounting, revealing that we are the last generation --- the one that will see Jesus come at the Rapture (the first phase of His Second Coming).

People in the United States have not seen the horrible calamities that the rest of the world has seen. Europe and Asia were devastated by two world wars. There have been none on American ground. But, that all changed when the 19 terrorists viciously attacked Washington DC and New York on 9-11-2001. Over 3000 innocent civilians were brutally murdered, here on USA soil. This heinous act actually declared an international war on terrorism.

In this war we are faced by enemies who cannot be seen or found because they are cowards. They cover their faces so they can't be recognized. These maniacs are religious fanatics who hate Israel and America. This war must be fought for self preservation, and it must be fought with deadly force.

But, few people have taken notice of something that is taking place, in the background, because of the terrorism. The nations of the world have been coming together, and helping one another. The Bible predicts that in the last days there would be a European confederation of nations, a revived Roman Empire.

The Berlin Wall came down in 1989, and ever since most of Europe has been uniting. They still have their individual governments but they are leaning toward a common governing body. The European Union (EU) has its own Parliament, Council, Court, banks and more. It has a web site: www.europa.eu.int and it is available in 11 languages.

Skeptics think that anyone who believes all this “nonsense” are a bunch of fanatics. They say that people have been saying “Jesus is going to return soon” for centuries, and He’s not here yet. They think we’re loony! That's OK. Let them think what they may!

But, all TRUE born again Christians live with this thought in our minds. Jesus shall return, and it could be at any time. We believe that He will come and remove ALL TRUE believers at the Rapture. 1 Thes. 4:13-17 But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. [14] For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. [15] For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep. [16] For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: [17] Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. [KJV] God will bring back with Jesus all the Christians who have died. We who are still living when the Lord returns will not rise to meet Him before those who have died. For the Lord Himself will come down from Heaven with a shout, calling His own to Him. First, all the Christians who have died will rise from their graves; a bodily resurrection. Then we who are still alive and remain on the Earth will be caught up in the clouds with them to meet the Lord in the air and remain with Him forever. This is the hope of all believers! Titus 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; [KJV]

Even a hundred years ago, it would have seemed impossible for a 200 million man army from the Orient could get to a war in Israel. Rev. 9:16 And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them. [KJV] It would have seemed impossible for an army of 200 million soldiers to fulfill this prophecy. BUT --- what about now? Today? Would it be possible? YES! Absolutely!

A hundred years ago, there was no nation of Israel. She didn’t become a state until 1948. A hundred years ago the Jewish people were still scattered all through the world. And there was no way one government could rule over all the Mediterranean nations. But, today things have changed drastically.

Rev. 11:1 And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. [KJV] John was instructed to measure the Temple. A hundred years ago there was no Temple with not much hope of there being one any time soon. But, today Israel has the plans to rebuild the Temple almost completed. There are hundreds of young Jewish men studying to be Levite priests. The Bible states there must be a Temple, so the Temple must be built either before the Tribulation period, or during the Tribulation.

The Lord has been very specific in telling us what events will take place before He returns. Read Matthew 24 and Luke 21. One of those events that will happen before the Lord comes is that the Gospel will be brought to all people. The Bible has been translated into many different languages. Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. [KJV] The Lord could come at any time at the Rapture.

He IS coming! Count on it. And it may be soon.

We must be watching.

Matthew 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. [KJV]

There’s a prophecy in Malachi that most preachers refuse to touch. They consider it hard to believe and more difficult yet to understand. But this will take place during the Tribulation, after the Rapture. This shall happen!

Malachi 4:5-6 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: [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. [KJV] The Book of Revelation speaks of two witnesses who are to appear in the last days (Rev. 11:3–12). I do not know who the second witness will be, but I feel sure that one of them will be Elijah. There is different views on who the second one is. Many believe that it will be Moses. I cannot say yes or no to this, for I simply do not know. All I know is that only two men were raptured: Enoch and Elijah. To me, it is just common sense that the two witnesses will be Enoch and Elijah, but, only God known for sure.

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

Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. [KJV] Translate = transfer, transport, rapture.

Jude 1:14 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, [KJV]

2 Kings 2:1 And it came to pass, when the Lord would take up Elijah into heaven by a whirlwind, that Elijah went with Elisha from Gilgal. [KJV]

2 Kings 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. [KJV]

I also know what this verse says. Hebrews 9:27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment: [KJV] Neither Enoch or Elijah died. And I know what this verse says. Rev. 11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. [KJV] The two witnesses in Revelation will eventually die. Because neither Enoch or Elijah died a physical death, I have always thought that the two witnesses will be Enoch and Elijah, but the Bible does not tell us specifically who the second witness will be. Elijah will be one, and we’ll discuss that.

Malachi 4:5-6 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord: [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. [KJV] At the Passover Feast, in the orthodox Jew’s home, a chair is put at the table in which no one sits. It is for Elijah who shall come. When John the Baptist appeared, the Jews thought he was Elijah, but John the Baptist was not Elijah. The Bible does say that he could have been, but he wasn’t. IF Christ had established His Kingdom, then John would have been Elijah. How could that be possible? I cannot answer that. But it didn’t happen that way. No one can really answer that. “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord.” John the Baptist was not the fulfillment of this prophecy because he was announcing the Messiah, the Saviour of the world. John said, “… Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29). That is different from announcing that the great and terrible Day of the Lord is coming.

Elijah to return! What a remarkable prophecy. Malachi said that just before that great and terrible Day of the Lord (the last half of the Tribulation), when God’s holy wrath would be poured out upon the Earth, God would send Elijah the prophet back to Earth.

When God told John to “measure the Temple” in Rev.11:1, there was no Temple. It had been destroyed in AD 70. Its destruction was predicted by Jesus (Mat.24:1-2). There has been no Temple now for almost 2000 years. But, in Revelation 11, in the first half of the Tribulation, there was a Temple or John could not have measured it. God will now deal with the Jews.

There are many, preachers included, who say that God is done with the Jews. That is NOT true! People say that God turned His back on the Jews when they rejected Yeshua of Nazarath as their Messiah all those years ago. People say that God replaced the Jews with the church of today. That is NOT so! God has NOT cast off His people! God loves the Jews just as much as He ever did, and He also loves the church.

Jeremiah 31:35-37 Thus saith the Lord, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The Lord of hosts is his name: [36] If those ordinances depart from before me, saith the Lord, then the seed of Israel also shall cease from being a nation before me for ever. [37] Thus saith the Lord; If heaven above can be measured, and the foundations of the earth searched out beneath, I will also cast off all the seed of Israel for all that they have done, saith the Lord. [KJV] NO one can measure the heavens or the foundation of the Earth! Neither will God reject or do away with Israel any more than He will do away with the laws of nature! God loves the Jews (Deut. 14:2; 26:18; 32:10; Zech.2:8; Ex.19:5; Ps.135:4). Far too many fail to realize this fact, this truth.

In Matthew 24 & 25, Jesus outlines God’s last days plan for Israel, even indicating that the nations of this world will be judged on how they treat Israel during the Tribulation period.

The Letters in the New Testament have much to say about how God feels about Israel as well. Rom.11:1-2 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. [2] God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying, [KJV] Even with all the wrongs they have done, God still loves Israel.

Revelation tells us Israel plays a prominent role in history: past, present and future. Chapter 7 tells us of a tremendous revival. God is NOT finished with His people. He will never let them down.

Testimony of the Two Witnesses

Rev. 11:3-7 And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. [4] These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth. [5] And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. [6] These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. [KJV] Almighty God Himself, is the One who will give power to these two witnesses. The two olive trees represent channels of the oil feeding the Church, and are symbols of the Holy Spirit and peace. The two candlesticks (lampstands) represent lights shining brightly before the powers of darkness. Being clothed in sackcloth means they will take their job of reaching lost souls seriously. They will prophesy during the last 1,260 days of the Tribulation period.

No one will be able to touch these two prophets. If anyone tries to harm them, they have the power of fire that flashes from their mouths, and will consume their enemies. Anyone who tries to harm them will die.

These two also have power to shut the skies so that no rain will fall for as long as they prophesy, and they have the power to turn the rivers and oceans into blood, and to send every kind of plague imaginable upon the Earth as often as they wish. Can you even begin to estimate the power of these two men? And can you imagine how the unbelieving world will hate them?

Rev.11:7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. [KJV] When they complete their testimony, Antichrist will declare war against them. He will conquer them and kill them. But, only when they finish their job!

Rev. 11:8-13 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. [9] And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. [10] And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. [11] And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. [12] And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. [13] And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. [KJV]

Below John sees the Antichrist. John sees this same beast later.

Rev. 13:1 And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. [KJV] Antichrist receives his power from Satan. Sea is a symbol of peoples, nations (Isa.8:7; 17:12-13; Jer.47:2). Antichrist will be a Gentile.

Rev. 11:8-10 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. [9] And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. [10] And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. [KJV]

These two witnesses had been like salt in an open wound. The people of the Earth will be sick and tired of hearing about these two prophets in newspapers and seeing them on TV. So --- when Antichrist puts them to death, it will be a great time of celebration, and he will be a hero. Everyone will breathe a sigh of relief.

These men of God will not even given a decent burial. This shows the crude and cold savageness of the last days which will be covered with but a thin coating of culture. In other words, people will be hypocritical barbarians! There is a eerie resemblance to the sadistic interest which placed two dead men, Lenin and Stalin, on display in Red Square in Moscow.

The world will show contempt and hatred for the two witnesses. They will be treated as dead animals. “The great city” is Jerusalem. It is compared to Sodom by Isaiah (Isa. 1:10). It is called Egypt because the world has entered into every fiber of its life—social and political. It is absolutely identified as Jerusalem by the somber selection, “where also our Lord was crucified.”

Rev. 11:11-13 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. [12] And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. [13] And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. [KJV] While the world is still celebrating the death of these witnesses, television cameras will be focused on them lying dead in the street. All of a sudden, the witnesses will stand on their feet! And all the networks will regret that they had their cameras on them, because they really won’t want to give the news as it is. These two witnesses are among the tribulation saints who have part in the first resurrection (Rev. 20:4–6).

A hundred years ago, it seemed impossible that the world would see the two witnesses lying dead in the street, and three and a half days later, see them rise again! But, with today's technology, we all know it can be done with TV and the internet. ALL prophecies shall be fulfilled!

Until recently, most Christian scholars tried to explain away Malachi 4:5. “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and dreadful day of the Lord:” They would try to connect it with Malachi 3:1. “Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts.” Their reasoning: both verses spoke of the same person, John the Baptist. They figured that Elijah’s name was used in Malachi 4:5 because John the Baptist came “in the spirit and power of Elijah” (Luke 1:17).

Matthew 17:12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. [KJV] They say Jesus said that Elijah had already come, but the fail to quote the previous verse. Matthew 17:11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. [KJV] John the Baptist had already been beheaded. He was dead. Yet here, Jesus uses a future tense verb to verify that Elijah shall first come, and restore all things. Jesus is saying this is in the future, so it cannot refer to John the Baptist, but instead Elijah (Elias). Jesus said the Elijah would come, so he absolutely will come! Don’t doubt it for a minute.

Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them, is speaking of John the Baptist, yes. Elijah did come, but they killed him Jesus said, and they are going to kill me too.

John 1:19-21 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? [20] And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. [21] And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No. [KJV] John knew about Malachi’s prophecy. Was he Elijah? No. He was not Elijah, but he was like him. Did John the Baptist minister in the spirit and power of Elijah? Absolutely! But John was not the fulfillment of Malachi 4. It will be Elijah, who is yet to come. Just as with Revelation, it is best to interpret Scriptures literally, unless it states it is symbolic.

Some people refuse to believe that Malachi 4 and Revelation 11 have any connection whatsoever. They cannot see Elijah as being one of the two witnesses. Myself, I truly believe Elijah will be one of the two witnesses. As I stated before, Elijah never died (2 Kings 2:9-11) and it is appointed unto men once to die (Heb.9:27). Also Elijah stopped it from raining for 3 1/2 years (1 Kings 17). That miracle is identical to one of the miracles in Rev.11.

And as I stated before I think it is quite possible that the other witness is Enoch. No one knows for sure, this is just my opinion.

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

Hebrews 11:5 By faith Enoch was translated that he should not see death; and was not found, because God had translated him: for before his translation he had this testimony, that he pleased God. [KJV] Translate = transfer, transport, rapture.

Jude 1:14-15 And Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, [15] To execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard speeches which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. [KJV] It is my humble opinion that Enoch was the first man in the Bible who was a prophet of God. Not only was he just a prophet, I believe he was a judgment prophet, just like Elijah. The prophecy in Jude about him deals specifically with the Second Coming of Christ. “Behold, the Lord cometh with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds.”

God told Enoch things about the Second Coming of Christ, long before the First Coming --- when Jesus came as a Man. Enoch was only the 7th generation from Adam, so that would be hundreds of years before Noah and the Flood.

Some say Enoch could not be the 2nd witness in Revelation 11 because he was a Gentile. Certainly Enoch was a Gentile! There were no Israelites until Abraham, and that was hundreds of years after Enoch. If you trace the Messianic line from Adam to Christ, you will see there were many Gentiles listed.

The descendants of Seth (the Godly line), who lived before the Flood were not Israelites, nor were they Jewish, but they absolutely were a part of God’s plan. Not being a Jew does not disqualify Enoch from being one of the witnesses.

Mission of the Two Witnesses

Why will God send these two men to prophecy? To better understand why, we should understand a little about the Great Tribulation Period. Tribulation comes from a word thlibo, which actually means pressure. This future 7 year period in history will take place just after the Rapture of the church (1 Thes.4:13-18), and just before the Millennial Kingdom will be established. The reason for this time of pressure and troubles is to bring back to Himself, the people of Israel. God will make it so difficult for them and give them little choice but to obey Him. The purpose is to bring Israel back to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, and to show her that Yeshua (Jesus) is her Messiah. Although the entire world will be effected and millions will perish, the Tribulation will be primarily for Israel’s benefit. That’s why Jeremiah calls it “the Time of Jacob’s (Israel) trouble (Jer. 30:7).

The Tribulation will be divided into two periods of 3 1/2 years each. This reveals the accuracy of Scriptures when describing the timing of events that will happen (Dan.7:25; 12:7). “A time, times, and an half” means a year, two years and a half a year which is 3 1/2 years. This same period is called forty and two months (Rev.11:2; 13:5), and a thousand two hundred and threescore days (Rev. 11:3). The Jewish calendar is based on a lunar year of 360 days. 1260 days on a Jewish calendar is exactly 3 1/2 years.

The first 3 1/2 year period will be a time of relative peace because Israel is soothed into a false sense of security (1 Thes.5:3). Then the two-faced Antichrist will break his peace treaty with Israel (Dan.9:27). “One week” is equal to 7 years. So, in the middle of the 7 years (3 1/2 years), Antichrist will turn with a vengeance on srael.

Mat. 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. [KJV] When Jesus spoke these words the church had not yet been born. He was speaking to His Jewish disciples. To Jews.

During the last half of the Tribulation, persecution will become extremely intense. Many tribulation saints will be martyred.

Rev. 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; [KJV] Remember, saints are true believers in Jesus. Only God can make a saint. NO man can make any person a saint, for only God knows truth which lies in a person’s heart. The Jews will be forced to flee into the wilderness. These will be fed by God, possibly as He did when Israel fled Egypt years ago.

Rev. 12:6 And the woman fled into the wilderness, where she hath a place prepared of God, that they should feed her there a thousand two hundred and threescore days. [KJV] God will have a place ready for these Jews to come; many think it is the city of Petra.

Why does Satan hate the Jews so? She is among the smallest of nations in the world, yet she is “the apple of God’s eye” (Zech.2:8). Satan knows if he could destroy the entire Jewish people, he would wipe out God’s plan; but, that will NOT happen!

Holocaust, is an Old Testament sacrificial term, used by historians to describe the massacre of 6 million Jews by during World War II by Adolf Hitler. Methods of killing at Auschwitz and other camps included ovens, cyanide gas or carbon monoxide gas, electrocution, phenol injections, flame-throwers, and hand grenades. Two-thirds of Europe's Jews had been murdered, more than had been slain during the previous 1,800 years. Yet God kept a remnant. They were not all killed, nor will they ever be completely destroyed (Jerermiah 31:35-37; Micah 5:7-8). The Antichrist will fail in his attempt to wipe out the Jews.

Much pressure and trouble will come from the Antichrist, but during the final 3 1/2 years there will be plagues, war, demons, and all kinds of supernatural things happening in nature. It will be a time of dreadful evil and wickedness that will be worldwide, such as this world has never seen (Mat.24:21).

It will be during the beginning of this final and horrific 3 1/2 years that the two witnesses will appear. They will be supernaturally protected by God Himself, until their mission is completed. These two prophets will witness during the darkest and most dangerous time in history. They will have power to perform whatever they desire.

Rev. 11:5-6 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. [6] These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will. [KJV] They will be the most hated men on Earth for the things they do, but they cannot be killed. They will preach the Gospel wherever they go. With our communication system the way it is today, the whole world will see them any time they turn on the TV.

Only when they finish the work God sent them to do, will Antichrist be able to kill them.

Rev. 11:7-8 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them. [8] And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city, which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified. [KJV]

This is the first mention of Antichrist in the Book of Revelation. When he finally kills the two witnesses, people will rejoice.

Rev. 11:9-10 And they of the people and kindreds and tongues and nations shall see their dead bodies three days and an half, and shall not suffer their dead bodies to be put in graves. [10] And they that dwell upon the earth shall rejoice over them, and make merry, and shall send gifts one to another; because these two prophets tormented them that dwelt on the earth. [KJV] The people will be so happy that they are dead that they won’t even bury the bodies. They will be left in the middle of the street in Jerusalem for people to see. The world will know they are dead, for they will see for themselves.

But --- 3 1/2 days later, the two prophets will be resurrected. Rev. 11:11 And after three days and an half the Spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet; and great fear fell upon them which saw them. [KJV] The world will also see this amazing event!

Rev. 11:12 And they heard a great voice from heaven saying unto them, Come up hither. And they ascended up to heaven in a cloud; and their enemies beheld them. [KJV] The witnesses will hear God calling them to Heaven. And the world will see them rise up out of sight. Immediately after they depart, a terrible earthquake will strike.

Rev. 11:13 And the same hour was there a great earthquake, and the tenth part of the city fell, and in the earthquake were slain of men seven thousand: and the remnant were affrighted, and gave glory to the God of heaven. [KJV]

These events will bring on a series of judgments that will cause the salvation of Israel. Romans 11:26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob: [KJV]

The arrival of the Messiah will follow shortly.

Rev. 19:11-16 And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war. [12] His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but he himself. [13] And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. [14] And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean. [15] And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. [16] And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written, KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. [KJV]

This is the reason that only two people in history have left Earth without dying first. God will use them to bring His message to Israel in the near future. They, like Jesus, will come only to die. But, like Jesus, they too will experience resurrection, glorification and ascension to Heaven.
