"JESUS TOLD US, "ELIJAH IS COMING FIRST"......"

Dear Doves,

Matthew 17:11
"Jesus answered and said to them, "Indeed, Elijah is coming FIRST and will restore all things."

I believe that this Scripture is telling us that  Elijah, who was raptured to heaven, will be one of 'God's Two Witnesses' who will have a ministry for the 1,260 days of the 'FIRST-HALF' of the '70th Week of Daniel' BEFORE Jesus, Himself, returns to rapture hIS Church. This is one of the many signs that Jesus gives us to 'watch always' for His return to rapture The Church.

A great time to visit Israel will be during the FIRST-HALF of the '70th Week of Daniel' while Israel is living in the period of 'peace and safety' of the FIRST-HALF of the 'covenant with many' before the 'sudden destruction' at the mid-point. At that time, a visitor to Israel will be able to safely see and hear 'God's Two Witnesses' as well as visit the newly re-built third Temple of God before the 'abomination of desolation' is set-up by the anti-Christ at the mid-point.

According to your Word, Come Lord Jesus!
