    Are the two witnesses Moses and Elijah or Enoch and Elijah? I have been trying to find the answer.

    I believe that Revelations 11:4 gives us a clue it says that these are the two olive trees and the two candlesticks As in Ezekiel 37:16-17 it talks about joining two sticks together so they may become one. one stick is for JUDAH and the other for EPHRAIM. these two become one stick. the word translated stick is 'ets (Strong's 6086). That word is usually interpreted as tree. It is interpreted as stick, which comes from a tree, because Ezekiel could not hold a tree in each hand. but the passage means these two trees become one. This is right after raising the dry bones in Ez 37. This is what Paul was talking about in ROMANS 11:16-27 where the wildbranch is grafted in to the good olive tree. Therefore, I believe that the two witnesses are not two individuals, but the tribes of JUDAH (JEWS by descent) and EPHRAIM (GENTILES/MESSIANIC BELIEVERS/YASHAR'EL) when they are finally joined together as one. (Is this the 144,000? I don't know.)

    Can you also clarify, I find in Revelations chapters 2 and 3, is not also the church called the candlestick? I don't even think that Elijah could be one of the two witnesses anyway because Jesus said that John the Baptist was Elijah.

    In the Cepher we use the word "menorah" which is a "seven branched candlestick". The called-out assemblies are represented by menoroth (candlesticks) in Revelation. Some have come to the conclusion that the two witnesses are Mosheh (Moses) and Eliyahu (Elijah) or Chanok (Enoch) and Eliyahu.
