12 And [kai] they heard [akouo] a great [megas] voice [phone] from [ek] heaven [ouranos] saying [lego] unto them, [autos] Come up [anabaino] hither. [hode] And [kai] they ascended up [anabaino] to [eis] heaven [ouranos] in [en] a cloud; [nephele] and [kai] their [autos] enemies [echthros] beheld [theoreo] them. [autos] KJV-Interlinear



12 And they heard a loud voice from heaven saying to them, "Come up here." And they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies beheld them. NASB



They, is an immediate reference to the two witnesses.


The two witnesses heard a voice, not directed to them only, but a voice from heaven, a voice which could be heard by everyone.


The two were killed just three-and-a-half days earlier, in full public view. We can reasonably presume that they would or may be killed with some form of firearm, being shot with bullets and such. So there would be bullet holes and blood and everything that you would expect in a public killing.


A large audience will view this event, and a similarly large audience will witness their being raised from the dead, back to life.


Note one important thing, this is not a resurrection, but a resuscitation.  There is a big difference between the two.


Resuscitation means bringing life back into a biological body, where it resumes life as it was before. A resuscitated body is subject to death again, in the normal sense of physical death.


Resurrection is the replacement of the physical body with a new and perfect body which will not and cannot ever die.


Throughout history there are many examples of people who have presumably died, and then came back to life, to live their life and then die a physical death in due course.


Lazarus died, and remained dead for several days, then Jesus brought him back to life.  Lazarus was resuscitated, lived his normal life and then died a natural death as everyone does.


These two witnesses, if indeed they are Elijah and Moses, will have already lived their lives thousands of years ago, and were taken from this world in the manner in which we have already studied, and kept by God until the Tribulation. Then, God will bring them back in a manner which is not disclosed to us, then they will conduct their ministry, and then be killed in a very public event.


Their death will be violent enough that everyone can clearly see that they are indeed dead, and not faking it.


God will again, restore them to their physical bodies. They will stand up so that all can clearly see that they are alive, and then God (Christ), will call them (for all to hear) up to heaven, and up they will be lifted out of the sight of all of humanity, and whisked off to heaven.


They will not be resurrected, because their resurrection is with those believers from the Age of Israel, which will occur at the end of the Tribulation, following the Second Advent. This is the third resurrection.


Jesus was the first (first of the first fruits).

Church Age believers are the second resurrection (the rest of the first fruits) which will occur at the Rapture.

Old Testament believers will be resurrected in the third resurrection which will occur after the Second Advent. This also includes all Tribulation believers.

The fourth and final resurrection will be for believers from the Millennium, which will occur at the end of the Millennium.


Each group of believers will receive their Judgment Seat of Christ evaluation immediately following their resurrection.


Both awe and fear and terror will strike the hearts of all who witness their ascension. This combination of emotions will be caused by uncertainty, wonder, and second guessing if they, the public, have not made some big mistake.


But note, this emotional reaction is not followed with faith in Christ. At least not immediately. Yet another big event is required before some (not all) will actually believe in Christ.
