Q&A: Who is the ‘cloud of witnesses’ that Paul the Apostle refers to in his epistle?

Question by Aoiffe337: Who is the ‘cloud of witnesses’ that Paul the Apostle refers to in his epistle?
Somewhere in the Bible, paul says something about ‘seeing that there is a mighty cloud of witnesses…’. I find that people hedge this part of the Bible because they don’t want to believe people are already in heaven.Such people ask why would jesus need to return if people are already in heaven. Well Enoch and Elijah are there and Revelation talks about the forty elders and martyred saints. of course this may be two completely different topics. Even when jesus returns, He is expected to descend with a heavenly host. Could someone please help me with this question and clear up the matter with Bible references?
