Scofield seems to think he knows better than Jesus what Jesus said.

This, ofcourse, is Evidenced by The Historic Writings of The Apostles (Sans Judas) of The LORD Jesus Christ; Both The New Testament CANONAL & Non-Canonal Writings of said "Apostles"; Which INCLUDE, but aren't limited to, The Writings of The Converts, Students & Disciples of The "Apostles" of Christ like: Polycarp, Clement, Iraneus, Ignatius, Tertullian & The Rest of The Biblical-Literalist Interpreters of The Authorized Holy Bible-Scripture(s) in The 1st, 2nd, 3rd & 4th Centuries:
One of Whom, in Particular, was named Ephrem of Syria.

I have never heard any pastor expound on these verses; but, are they not powerful?
Other cultures report One having appeared to them, and this has been passed down even to today. Could it be that native Americans, and pacific islanders, to mention a couple of cultures who make such claims actually were witnessed to at that time. Are these the "firstfruits" that Jesus mentions?
I've always wondered, but never had the opportunity to ask.

Anyway, JD did mention sometimes back that the OT saints like John the Baptist were never a part of the kingdom of heaven and wouldn't be resurrected at the same time as the NT church. So how can Moses and Elijah be the two witnesses if they were never raptured out yet. How many raptures are there under the dispy scheme? My head spins.

Afterwards God sends 2 witnesses, ELIJAH AND MOSES to the earth who minister during the first 3 1/2 of the 7 years. They are later slain by the man of sin and God resurrects them and they ascend to heaven after 3 days of laying in the streets of Jerusalem.
Now I know absolutely that you are a strict literalist when it comes to interpreting the Bible. A Dispensational literalist at that. So where in the context does it affirm that the two witnesses of Revelation 11 are ELIJAH & MOSES? Or is this some sort of Dispy concoction?
And doesn't this mean (if the two witnesses are indeed ELIJAH & MOSES) that they will have to then DIE TWICE?
Now read:Hbr 9:27 "And as it is appointed unto men ONCE to die, but after this the judgment:"
And as far as Elijah goes:1Cor 15:22 "For as in Adam ALL die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive." and
John 3:13 "And NO man hath ascended up to heaven,..."
When do you think the rapture will be?
I haven't seen historical evidence that Exec. Order 11110 was actually aimed at the Fed. It wasn't nullified till Reagan.
