Q. Re: Hebrews 9:27: “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.”
This verse makes me think that it will be Enoch in the tribulation, not Moses. If these witnesses die in the tribulation like the Bible says then Moses would have died twice and Enoch not at all. If it is Enoch then everyone that has ever lived would have died once. what do you think?
A. In my study titled “The Two Witnesses of Revelation” I show how the ministries of the two witnesses and the miracles they perform are reminiscent of Moses and Elijah.
I also explain that Hebrews 9:27 is a principle not a rule. Several biblical figures have died more than once. Elijah raised a boy from the dead (1 Kings 17:22), Jesus raised several: Jairus’s daughter (Mark 5:40-42) the widow of Nain’s son (Luke 7:14-15) and Lazarus (John 11:43-44), and Paul raised a man who had fallen out of a third story window and died (Acts 20:7-12). I also believe that Paul himself was raised from the dead (Acts 14:19-20). These people all died again later. And if you believe that in Matt. 17:12 Jesus said that John the Baptist was Elijah, then Elijah died, too.
I remain persuaded that the two witnesses in Revelation 11 are most likely Moses and Elijah.
