    Elijah
    2Ki 2:11 And it came to pass, as they still went on, and talked, that, behold, there appeared a chariot of fire, and horses of fire, and parted them both asunder; and Elijah went up by a whirlwind into heaven.

    Enoch

    Gen 5:24 And Enoch walked with God: and he was not; for God took him.

    Only two (that I'm aware of) who did not die.

    No other reason for this belief!!!

    We don't know,

    Scripture doesn't tell us exactly what they will be preaching.

    Rev 11:3 ΒΆ And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.

    7 And when they shall have finished their testimony, the beast that ascendeth out of the bottomless pit shall make war against them, and shall overcome them, and kill them.

    The word for testimony (witness) is marturia. Marturia is used in other passages which might shed light on what the witnesses marturia will be....

    1Jo 5:10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness <3141> in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record <3141> that God gave of his Son.
    1Jo 5:11 And this is the record <3141>, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

    I would imagine that the two witnesses will be testifying to the gospel of Jesus Christ.

    I agree with this, Elijah and Enoch, they're the only ones in the bible who did not die.But on the other hand, they may not be someone form the bible. But I think they will be.

    I believe Grasshopper is right. The two witnesses are Moses and Elijah. They were with Christ at the transfiguration so there is reason to believe these two could play a role in the plan of man's ultimate redemption.
