The Return of the King!
Jerusalem will be the first to be liberated when Christ descends upon the Mount of Olives, enabling the historic site of David's Throne to be secured - then shall all Israel be saved when the Messiah goes forth from Zion! Christ will be proclaimed King (Isa. 52:7).
Jerusalem's redemption from Gentile occupation is Israel's comfort, because when the Messiah reigns in the City of our God, Israel's deliverance will have arrived! [b]The Two Witnesses are witnesses in advance, by faith, of the Day when "the LORD shall bring again Zion" (Isa. 52:8-9; 62:6-7). As watchmen they await its fulfillment, though already ANNOUNCING IT as fact [/b](Isa. 40:1- 2; Rom. 4:17).
They herald the imminent Zionist Movement of ALL Israel, under Shiloh (Gen. 49:10), back to the Land of Zion and Jerusalem! They will prophesy the RESTORATION OF ISRAEL and assure Jerusalem of future glory, promising the Temple shall be built (Isa. 44:26-28; Ezek. 40-48). These men, in "the spirit of Elijah," must IDENTIFY MESSIAH TO JUDAH AND INTRODUCE HIM TO ISRAEL!
