Preparing for Christ’s return — 2 Comments

  1. John 1 says John the Baptist came as the incarnation of Elijah. I take that as a literal return which means Elijiah met his death in that life. Do you feel that John was not literally Elijah and Elijah will come again? If he was John, will he be required to die again? It’s given to man once to die.

    • I don’t take John the Baptist as a literal return of Elijah. It is given to man once to die, but the Old Testament says neither Enoch nor Elijah died. Perhaps their death is described in Revelation 11. I don’t believe in reincarnation. John must represent Elijah as a type.
