Moses and Elijah were two of the earliest prophets before the invasion of Assyria, Babylon and Persia. Several prophecies point to their return and to a return of powers like ancient Babylon and Persia at the end of time.
We know that the real Moses and Elijah and the real Babylon and Persia will not come back. However, a prophet or a message like Moses and Elijah will return to lead the people of God and a nation like Babylon will return at the end of time to persecute the people of God
Why is the leadership and message of Moses and Elijah more important than the great prophets who existed during the fall of Babylon? It is because Israel went into apostasy and were conquered by Babylon, they did not listen to their prophets and turn back to God. However, both Moses and Elijah were successful in leading Israel back to God and away from apostasy. Therefore, it is their message and tactics that will be needed to successfully warn the final nation of God. Their leadership and example accomplishes the following:

The Prophecies
Several prophecies talk about the final evangelistic efforts at the end of time which will unite the Jews and Christians. Both branches were strategically separated at the crucifixion by the will of God and they will be united at the end.
So the worse and more bitter the 2000 year public division and hatred between the two branches, the greater and more compelling will be the evidence that unites them.

Israel Physical and Spiritual Israel
Many prophecies in the old Testament seem to transition from a local event to a global event at the end of time. This causes a dilemma in deciding not only how much of the prophecy applied to the local event, but how much can we use it as a pattern for the final event. Central to this discussion is the role of the nation of Israel. Does the global event still refer only to that nation or does it include the entire church? And if Israel is to be applied to the global church, how do we interpret the role of the other local groups named?
It has been our opinion that the global event will be applied to both the global and local entities. Revelation gives us a clue about who the global players will be. Babylon the Great and the King of the North are the final world powers that will mimic the actions of ancient Babylon and Assyria. But before they fulfill the prophecy, God uses the local entities as signs of the coming fulfillment. So that the prophecy is reenacted by events in these places and among the local people.
Local-Global Local or Global Events. How do we know that these are not just simply local events that we are wrenching out of context to fit the end of time? We used at least two criteria to evaluate the global nature of the prophecy.

Local-Global Last Day Jews. We also believe certain prophecies refer to a sign at the end of time among the genetic descendants of Israel, not the global Israel. All the reasons mentioned reference events during a future apocalyptic fulfillment.

The Message of Elijah
The issues faced by Elijah exist at the end of time. He was a successful advocate for God by challenging the people to make a decision as he demonstrated the superiority of God. The message of the three angels is the Elijah message.

Old Testament: The Reconciliation of Israel
Several old testament prophecies predict the conversion of Israel in the last days. Malachi predicted the coming of Elijah in the last days. Zechariah shows the conditions under which Israel will respond to the Gospel. Moses also predicted reconciliation in the latter days under times of distress. The Passover ceremony reminds them to look for Elijah who will introduce them to the Messiah in the end of days before the wrath is poured out.
Jesus also predicted a unity in the church that will be a sign to the world that He is the Messiah. (John 17: 20-23)

Reconciled Malachi
He was the prophet who explicitly predicted the coming of Elijah.
Moses. Remember the law of Moses My servant, even the statutes and ordinances which I commanded him in Horeb for all Israel.
Elijah. Behold I am going to send you Elijah the prophet before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.
(Malachi 4: 4-6)
Based on this prophecy, the disciples and the Jews expected Elijah to come. However, the prophecy points to both the coming of Moses and Elijah. The disciples thought that the prophecy was being fulfilled when they saw Jesus Christ being transfigured with Moses and Elijah. They thought that this was the fulfillment but Jesus told them to suppress the information.
And behold, Moses and Elijah appeared to them talking to Him.
As they were coming down from the mountain, Jesus commanded them saying, "Tell the vision to no one until the Son of Man has risen from the dead." And His disciples asked Him, "Why then do the scribes say that Elijah must come first?"
Elijah is Coming in the Future. And He answered and said, "Elijah is coming and will restore all things;
Elijah Came in the Past. But I say to you that Elijah already came, and they did not recognize him, but did to him whatever they wished. So also the Son of Man is going to suffer at their hands." Then the disciples understood that He had spoken to them about John the Baptist.
(Matthew 17: 3,9-13)
Jesus made some important statements about Elijah that appear to conflict with the prophecy.

Reconciled The Inhabitants Of The City Of God
Several prophecies describe the same set of people in relation to the time of the return and acceptance of the Messiah. They are Judah, Levi, priests, the house of David, and the inhabitants of the city of Jerusalem. Each represents a phase of the church at the time of its unification and they are mentioned in several prophecies.

The First Distribution Of The Land
Ezekiel describes a distribution of the land after Christ that was different than Joshua. Under Joshua the inheritance was distributed in a way that seemed to prophecy the division of the church.

Map
North
Sea Asher Naphtali Manasseh

Dan BenjaminDead Sea Reuben
Judah Temple Land of Moab

Remembering that the Jews read from right to left we see that the tribes on the east represent the transition from the first distribution to the final.

The Siege of Israel at the Feast of Tabernacles
Let us look again at the context of the Jews returning to the Messiah in the last days. This time we will compare those events to Psalm 118 which is said at the feast of Tabernacles. They will recognize Him during Passover or because of the Passover symbols and they will accept Him by Tabernacles.

Reconciled The Passover Reconciliation of Israel by Elijah
The Jews believe that Elijah will visit them during Passover to introduce them to the Messiah.
Traditionally, Elijah the Prophet visits each home on Seder night as a foreshadowing of his future arrival at the end of the days, when he will come to announce the coming of the Jewish Messiah. He comes during the pouring of the third cup and the finding of the hidden Afikoman.
Afikoman Children Find the Afikoman. The observance of the Passover seder predicts that after the middle matzah is broken and eaten, the larger half will be hidden until almost the end of the ceremony when Elijah comes and wrath is poured out on the nations. The children will find it and pay a king's ransom for it and they will eat it. The Gentiles ate the smaller half at the crucifixion. The largest part of Christ's work for Israel is yet to be done among the children.
It is interesting that when the Jews finally find and accept the Messiah it will be in the form of the conquering Messiah for whom their ancestors looked. So they were correct, they were not supposed to find and eat the suffering Messiah.

Wine for Elijah Drink The Cup of Redemption (Cup of Elijah the prophet). During this cup another cup of wine is also poured for Elijah as they anticipate his coming during Passover.
Open the Door to the Messiah. During this cup, they open the front door to receive Elijah and wrath is sent on the world when the following words are said.
Pour out Your wrath upon the nations which do not know You, and upon the kingdoms which do not call upon your name. For they have devoured Jacob and laid waste his habitation. (Psalm 79: 6-7).
You shall pursue them in anger and destroy them from under the heavens of the Lord. (Lamentations 3: 66)

The Wrath of God on the Nations. This is the final curse that is poured out on the nations in the seven last plagues. This Passover tradition also sees wrath at the end of days after the appearance of Elijah. Malachi says that Elijah shall come and turn the nation back to God before the Day of the Lord to escape the curse.
... so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse. (Malachi 4:6)
The first coming of Elijah was not the success story predicted. It was the predicted failure. Similarly, the crucifixion was not a complete fulfillment of the events of the third cup. This is probably why Jesus postponed the fourth cup until the Second Coming. The following was not completed in the third cup, not because Jesus failed, but because the people failed. Jesus provided everything that was needed for our reconciliation but we rejected His offer.

The Great Passover Sign Before the Final Exodus
And it shall serve as a sign to you on your hand, and as a reminder on your forehead, that the law of the LORD may be in your mouth; for with a powerful hand the LORD brought you out of Egypt. Therefore, you shall keep this ordinance at its appointed time from year to year. (Exodus 13: 9-10)
Passover appears to be an issue during the mark of the beast persecution. When the beast gives his mark in the hand and forehead, the people of God must not only remember the SHEMA and the Sabbath, they should also remember Passover because it is also a sign of remembrance of the works of God in the hand and forehead.

So there still remains a "coming of Elijah" to introduce the Jews to the Messiah before the final wrath of the seven last plagues and the Second Coming. When they see this great sign, they will respond to this invitation.

New Testament: The Evangelism of the World by Moses and Elijah
Reconciled Revelation 11: The Witness of Moses and Elijah
Revelation 11 gives and outline of the events surrounding the preaching of the Elijah message and Revelation 14 is the message of the final generation. The two witnesses with the message have the power and skills of Moses and Elijah. They are filled with the Holy Spirit.
And I will grant authority to my two witnesses, and they will prophesy for twelve hundred and sixty days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees and the two lampstands that stand before the Lord of the earth.
Elijah (Fire and Drought). And if anyone wants to harm them, fire flows out of their mouth and devours their enemies; so if anyone wants to harm them, he must be killed in this way. These have the power to shut up the sky, so that rain will not fall during the days of their prophesying;
Moses (Blood and Plagues). and they have power over the waters to turn them into blood, and to strike the earth with every plague, as often as they desire.
(Revelation 11: 3-6)

The response of the wicked is to murder the witnesses and rejoice over their deaths. But God responds by giving them life in the presence of their enemies.
Resurrection. But after the three and a half days, the breath of life from God came into them, and they stood on their feet; and great fear fell upon those who were watching them.
Rapture. And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." Then they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies watched them.
Judgment. And in that hour there was a great earthquake, and a tenth of the city fell; seven thousand people were killed in the earthquake, and the rest were terrified and gave glory to the God of heaven.
(Revelation 11: 11-13)

This pattern is seen in all the efforts to prepare for the coming of the Lord. The years of the ministry of Jesus, the 1260 years of papal domination and the years of final persecution of the church.

Reconciled Revelation 14: The Three Angel's Message (God Sends a Warning Message)
The exact content of the message is given in the three angel's message.

  1. Angel of God Repent and Choose God. Saying with a loud voice, Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made heaven, and earth, and the sea, and the fountains of waters. (Revelation 14: 7)
    God is the true God based on His power to create and to perform miracles that false gods are incapable of performing. So, like the first angel, Elijah asks them to choose between God and Baal. John echoes the warning of the first angel who says to return to God because the hour of judgment has arrived.
    > John: Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand. (Matthew 3: 2)
    > Elijah: Choose God. It is God who makes them repent or turn their hearts towards Him.
    Answer me, O Lord, answer me, that this people may know that You, O Lord, are God, and that You have turned their hearts back again. (1 Kings 18: 37)
    > Moses: The Land of Slavery. Leave the slavery of Egypt and choose the God who gives rest.
    > The Last Days: The first angel warns us to choose God.
  2. Pagan gods Avoid Idolatry. And there followed another angel, saying, Babylon is fallen, is fallen, that great city, because she made all nations drink of the wine of the wrath of her fornication. (Revelation 14: 8)
    Elijah condemns Baal and idol worship just like the second angel. John pointed them to Christ who is the only image of God who can be worshipped.
    > Elijah: God or Baal? Sabbath or Sunday? Choose the commandments of God not the Baals and the Asherah.
    ... you have forsaken the commandments of the Lord and you have followed the Baals.
    ... How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the Lord is God follow Him; but if Baal follow him ...
    (1 Kings 18: 18, 21)
    > Moses: Land of Idols. Egypt was a land of false gods and idols.
    > The Last Days: Babylon the Great forces the people to worship the beast and his image.
  3. Plagues Flee from the Coming Wrath. And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, if any man worship the beast and his image, and receive his mark in his forehead, or in his hand, the same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascends up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name. (Revelation 14: 9-11)
    Elijah brings wrath on the false prophets just as the third angel warns that God will bring wrath on the false prophets, unclean spirits and the wicked when He pours out His cup of indignation. John also warned of wrath.
    > John: ... you brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come? (Matthew 3: 7)
    > Elijah: Armageddon. He killed them at the Kishon which is in the Jezreel valley on the plains of Megiddo.
    Then Elijah said to them, "Seize the prophets of Baal; do not let one of them escape". So they seized them and Elijah brought them down to the brook Kishon, and slew them there. (1 Kings 18: 40)
    > Moses: The Plagues of Egypt. Israel escaped the wrath of God poured out on Egypt.
    > The Last Days: The Seven Last Plagues The wrath of God is the seven last plagues.

God Acts to Save Those Who Respond.
God saves His people by first pouring out His Spirit and turning their hearts back. Then He leads them to the Promised Land and destroys their enemies.
Holy Spirit The God Who Answers by Fire. Moses, Elijah and John introduce us to the God who has fire from heaven.
> John: As for me I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. (Matthew 3: 11)
In the last days, the beast duplicates the miracle of fire from Heaven, but God brings the fire of the Holy Spirit with the latter rain. The beast can duplicate fire, but it cannot give the Holy Spirit.
> Elijah: The Fire From Heaven.
... and the God who answers by fire, He is God. Then the fire of the Lord fell and consumed the burnt offering and the wood and the stones and the dust and licked up the water that was in the trench.
... Go up, eat and drink; for there is the sound of the roar of a heavy shower.
(1 Kings 18: 24, 38, 41)
> Moses: The Pillar of Fire. God led them in the exodus with a pillar of fire in the night and clouds in the day.
> The Last Days: The Latter Rain Global Israel is converted during the Latter Rain when we are filled with the Holy Spirit and fire. Then the angel repeats the warnings of the three angels with more force as Babylon falls.
... I saw another angel coming down from heaven having great authority, and the earth was illumined with His glory. (Matthew 18: 1)

The People Respond to the Elijah Message.
The people are ready to meet their God. After the showdown, Elijah prayed for rain seven times until he saw a small cloud and the skies became black, there was a strong wind and then rain.
Trumpet The God Who Answers in Thunder and Rain.
> John: During his day only a few people responded. The rest killed the messenger.
> Elijah: The Rain From Heaven. Elijah prayed for rain seven times.
When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces; and they said, "The Lord, He is God, the Lord, He is God".
It came about at the seventh time, that he said, "Behold a cloud as small as a man's hand is coming up from the sea." And he said, "Go up, say to Ahab, prepare your chariot and go down, so that the heavy shower does not stop you."
(1 Kings 19: 39, 44)
> Moses: The Waters of the Red Sea. After their exodus from Egypt, the people come to the borders of the Red Sea. God opens a way through the sea and baptizes the whole nation there. He appears above them as a pillar of clouds. So we have the weather symbols of clouds and water.
Baptized in the Sea. For I do not want you to be unaware, brethren, that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea; and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea; (1 Corinthians 10: 1-2)
> The Last Days: The Seven Thunders. They are part of the sound of approaching rain. They show how God is acting to recreate His people. The sequence of events demonstrates the fact that the purpose of the latter rain is mainly to change the hearts of the people and grow the fruit of the Spirit, it is not to demonstrate God's power over nature to the evil world. The fact is that most people will be disobedient, only a few people do the work of God and stand up to evil. The power of God is demonstrated through those few people who have received the outpouring of the gifts of the Spirit.

Evil Fights Back.
An evil conglomerate that consists of a union of the church and the state persecutes the church. The church is symbolized by a female harlot who corrupts the people with idolatry. The state is symbolized by a weak male who submits to the demands and lures of the woman.
Surely there is no one like Ahab who sold himself to do evil in the sight of the Lord, because Jezebel his wife incited him. (1 Kings 21: 25)
The pattern of Elijah's story shows that he was being persecuted for three and a half years before the people turned back to God. Then at the end of the time period he was persecuted with greater force. This period is the final time of the sealing.
Dragon Fire The Beast Who Answers by Fire. The persecution intensifies as the woman threatens the life of the man of God.
> John: (Heroidas) He was killed by a conspiracy of two women. Heroidas and her daughter Salome convinced the weak king Herod Antipas to behead John. Herod cared more about saving face in front of his dinner guests than murdering a man that he knew was sent by God.
A 3½ Time Period Pattern
A pattern of wrath occurs in 3½ years.
• Christ. Jesus ministered for 3½ years and was killed at the end.
• Jews. The Romans besieged the Jews for 3½ years before they destroyed the city.
• Church. The church persecuted for 3½ prophetic years and fell at the end during the French revolution.
• Last Days. There will probably be 3½ years of revival before the final hours of the persecution.

Having been prompted by her mother, she said, "Give me here on a platter, the head of John the Baptist". (Matthew 14: 8) See Mark 6: 24
> Elijah: (Jezebel). Jezebel, the wife of Ahab, threatened the life of Elijah.
Now Ahab told Jezebel all that Elijah had done, and how he had killed the prophets with a sword. Then Jezebel sent a message to Elijah, saying, "So may the gods do to me even more, if I do not make your life as the life of one of them by tomorrow about this time." (1 Kings 19: 1-2)
> Moses: (Pharaoh). Pharaoh and the priests resisted the warnings of God and pursued the children of Israel with his army until they were trapped at the Red Sea.
> The Last Days (The Whore of Babylon): She rejects the warning message of God by murdering the witnesses.
And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the witnesses of Jesus. When I saw her, I wondered greatly. (Revelation 17: 6)

God Takes the Righteous to the Promised Land.
God leads the righteous to the Promised Land and destroys their enemies.
Rapture The God of the Resurrection. Jesus is the resurrection and the life.
> John: There is no record of what happened to John after he was beheaded. It is very likely that he was one of those who was resurrected at the crucifixion. If God only resurrected ancient patriarchs the people could not be expected to believe them because they were strangers. But they all knew John.
> Elijah: The Rapture. Elijah was taken alive to heaven in a chariot of fire.
As they were going along and talking, behold there appeared a chariot of fire and horses of fire which separated the two of them. And Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven. (2 Kings 2: 11)
> Moses: The Resurrection. Moses was resurrected and taken to heaven as one of the first fruits.
> The Last Days: The Second Coming. The righteous will be raptured and resurrected.
"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: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air." (1 Thessalonians 4: 16,17)

Reconciled Revelation 3-4: The Final Churches
The Elijah message predicts a very powerful revival movement at the end. Unfortunately, the characteristics of the last church does not fit this profile. Laodicea is the only church that was not praised for her work. So who does the work?
The last three churches exists in parallel until the end of time. These three churches arose at the end of time. One or more of them must open the door and respond to the message of Elijah. Revelation gives a warning to Sardis and Laodicea. Laodicea is naked and Sardis is asleep.
Behold I am coming like a thief. Blessed is the one who stays awake and keeps his clothes, so that he will not walk about naked and men will not see his shame. (Revelation 16: 15)

The Status of Israel In The End
Physical Israel (The Jews)
There is a popular prophetic teaching among Evangelicals that proposes a central, privileged role in the destiny of Israel at the end of time. This belief teaches the following about the biological nation of Israel. We reject these ideas.

Spiritual Israel (All Followers of Yeshua)
The bible really teaches that the Jews are not more special than other nations. The special nation is anyone who has faith. Therefore all promises made to the seed of Abraham applies to all people of faith. So anyone that claims allegiance to Christ is from the seed of Abraham and inherit all the promises and special privileges.
All People are One in Christ. You are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3: 26-28)
Heirs. If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3: 29)
Gentiles. This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 3: 6)
» Replacement Theology. This teaches that the Christian church replaced the Jews and all promises and prophecies about Israel now apply to them and there is no special role for the Jews (Matthew 21: 43).
The truth is that Israel was a nation of priests who were to lead the world to God. However, Israel broke away from Christ while the Gentiles joined themselves to Christ. So, technically, Israel did not lose the covenant. They really lost the right to be priests of God. The Gentiles took that role and the Jews have the role of the lesser priests, the other Levites. In the future, the Jews will join themselves back to Christ, bringing the knowledge of the Levites. The two nations will make up the tribes of Israel with the full spiritual heritage. So now all prophecies and promises belong to Christ and the people who have joined themselves to Him. The Christians are included in the prophecies.

Those who believe that there is no longer any special nation and that all the prophecies now apply to the Christian church tend to ignore the few prophecies that show how the Christian and Jewish branches of the church will be united and Israel's role as keeper of the things in the sanctuary.
Let me state emphatically that God will not do anything special for the Jews that He will not do for other nations. No Jew will be saved simply because he is related to Abraham. Everyone will be saved because they respond by faith to the evidence that the Holy Spirit will impress upon their hearts and minds.

The Wanderings Of The Ark Of The Covenant
The Wanderings of the Ark are a prophecy about the wanderings of the people of God as they were guided by the ark. Each phase represents the people who hold possession of the covenant.

Symbolic action appears to be a legal substitute for those who are hid in Christ, the real example
To me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ; And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world has been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ: To the intent that now to the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God. (Ephesians 3: 8-10)
This handling of the Jews and Gentiles was a great secret. In another lesson, I show that it is a battle strategy designed to trap and crush Satan's army by dividing the righteous army into two groups to execute a pincer movement.

Jesus The Parables of Jesus: The Kingdom of God is A Family Reconciliation
The kingdom of God comes after God separates His fighting children, then heals their wounds and reunites them.

Punishing The Enemies Of Israel
For the physical and spiritual nation of Israel this promise is true.
Blessings For Israel. And I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse, and in you all the families of the earth will be blessed. (Genesis 12: 3)
God will bless Israel and all its friends. He will curse those who harm Israel or wish them evil.
Retribution. For the Day of the Lord draws near on all the nations, "As you have done it will be done to you, your dealings will return on your own head." (Obadiah 1: 15)
Those who plot to do evil to the children of God will fall into the same trap. Their own schemes will be their own punishment.

This prophecy is repeated in many prophecies and ceremonies. These are the major points:

Type The Signs To The Last Generation. Like the people before the flood, at some point in the future the final generation must be confronted with a reality that screams cosmic danger. I refuse to believe that the last generation will not realize not only that they might be the last generation, but that they are the last generation. God extended this courtesy to Noah and he had a second chance. He must extend this same courtesy to the final generation who have run out of time and chances. So we might not know the day or the hour or the year, but we know that we are the end. At some point, even the generation experiencing the plagues must realize that they have less than a year remaining.

But from there you will seek the Lord your God, and you will find Him if you search for Him with all your heart and all your soul. Deuteronomy 4: 29 Time: 200 minutes
Print: 35 pages
For I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. You will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, declares the Lord, and I will restore your fortunes and will gather you from all the nations and from all the places where I have driven you, declares the Lord, and I will bring you back to the place from where I sent you in exile. Jeremiah 29: 11-14
