There are some studies that suggest that the 2 men in white from heaven seen as Jesus Ascended into Heaven on a cloud may very well be the 2 witnesses (or a picture of). Will the 2 witnesses come on Ascension day, Day 40 of the Omer count, and could His Bride “go up” that day?
Jesus is taken up and received by a cloud. Two men clothed in white (i.e., angels, see also Two witnesses) appear and tell the apostles that Jesus will return in the same manner as he was taken. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ascension_of_Jesus
recorded in vs. 10-11:
While he was going and they were gazing up toward
heaven, suddenly two men in white robes stood by them.
They said, "Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking up
toward heaven? This Jesus, who has been taken up from
you into heaven, will come in the same way as you saw
him go into heaven."
There are also many wonderful Jewish studies showing as a pattern the Jewish men, the 144,000 being sealed on the day of Pentecost.
Ascension Day May 17, 2012 Iyar 25 (not setting dates/for educational and discussion purposes only)
