THE AMAZING 144,000
THE AMAZING 144,000
Many times I have came across this number and thought just what does this number mean. Does it infer that these people have come and gone, much like the disciples who served Jesus Christ during the 3 ½ years of His ministry? Does it reflect a certain group of people who are working now to accomplish the work designed to bring forth the truth before Jesus Christ returns? Or is this the Saints who have gone before us, that are in heaven awaiting the Word from GOD to come and do His Work in these end days?
I have always felt is was directed at the end times for the chosen people who GOD designated to do His Will to spread certain Truths which have been hidden until a due time. Why did I feel this way? It was in my spirit, it just felt like the Truth.
Am I saying that I am part of this 144,000? I do not know, nor do I profess to know. I can only pray that I am worthy of GOD’s Love and the rest is icing on the cake!
In Revelations 7, we are told of these chosen ones and from what Tribe they descend from. This is the only place in the Bible where this list is given in this order. They will be given a SEAL OF GOD before the Great Tribulation. They will have a special name in their forehead which the supernatural are able to see.
Has this taken place, or is it now happening? Not only will this happen to these chosen ones, but also to GOD’s children of every nation and race.
Deuteronomy 6: 8 And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes.
So, this is SPECIAL! Not only will the damned be placed with a mark in the right hand and/or forehead, but GOD will give His children a special sign.
This is accounted by GOD by the actions of each person, either the good or bad.
Satan duplicates and twists everything of GOD, does he not? The Mark of the Beast will be a damnable feature to the body (hand/forehead), but I think the Mark of GOD will be a LIGHT! Either way, seen only by the supernatural and possibly other believers, when the time is nigh.
With the Believers, it’s only in the forehead. But, the others will be the hand/forehead. This is because we are saved by faith alone, and the others are both because they believe its by works (as a means of salvation/the beast power).
This is mentions four times in the Old Testament. Jesus quoted from the Book of Deuteronomy, three times when tempted by the devil.
In Ezekiel 9:
We are told the mark is placed on the foreheads of the saved who are grieved for the sin in the church.
Some think this to be taking place in a Temple but I believe this passage takes place in the supernatural-High Heavens in which GOD resides. Cannot these things take place in both dimensions at once? Why? Because the second verse says, the six men come from the way of the higher gate, which lie toward the north (Higher Heavens?). These sounds like angels to me. Angels ready for battle, the Archangels! The Writer’s Inkhorn (Angel of the Covenant) sounds like the higher ranking Archangel (possibly Jesus Christ) who keeps record (receiving direct communications with GOD) of the Book of Life & Death. Also note that the six Battling Angels (Destroyers) with the other Angel makes seven! Seven being the symbolic number of GOD’s covenant with His people. Why the possibility of Jesus Christ? Because in Ex 28:6; 28:8; Leviticus 16:4; He is clothed with linen-the priestly garment.
This “One Man” (Compare Daniel 10:5; Revelation 1:13) was the ‘angel of the covenant,’ the high priest, superior to those by whom He was surrounded. This Man takes the coals of vengeance from between the cherubim on Ezekiel 10:2, but coming with mercy to the contrite as well as with vengeance to the impenitent; and these attributes are also of Jesus Christ in John 5:30; 6: 39; Luke 2:34; Matthew 9:13.
This is the mercy-seat of the ark of the Holy of Holies, the proper seat of the Glory of the Lord, who sits at the Chariot of the Divine Glory.
Next, we are told the Lord tells them to go into the midst of the City of Jerusalem and set a mark upon their foreheads of the men that sigh and cry for the abominations therein. Some believe this sign to be a cross on the forehead, others think it to be a Tau, which in antiquity was thought to be in the shape of a cross. I have researched enough to know the Tau is something the Hindu’s/Freemasons/and others take to mean their symbol of a god. Is this Tau, a tainted symbol of GOD? Maybe so.
Beginning with the unfaithful in the church, will be the first visited and most punished. The synagogue of Satan? These destroyer angels had slain the seventy elders, the twenty-five adorners of the sun, and the women who mourn for Tammuz!
This is a condemnation of those who worship other idols and gods.
What is this SEAL OF GOD?
In world authorities we have seals, which will signify;
- 1. His Name
- 2. His Title
- 3. His Territory
The SEAL OF GOD is internally the Holy Spirit.
Ephesians 4:30 tells us we are sealed in the Holy Spirit. And it is possible to grieve the Holy Spirit; to make sad with sorrow by the actions of evil works. Neither are we to resist the Holy Spirit. Nor, to act in such a way towards the Holy Spirit that would produce pain in the heart of a friend that loves you. In others words, there are actions which would cause the Holy Spirit to leave from within you.
Some also believe that the SABBATH is also a SEAL of the LAW of GOD. This is the ONE commandment in which we find Holy. How does this relate to the SEAL OF GOD?
The commandment follows;
For in six days…
The Lord (His Name)
Made-HE is the Creator-(His Title)
The heavens and the earth (His Territory)
In the middle of the LAW OF GOD, you find the SEAL OF GOD.
Satan loves to change GOD’s Work-he did this by changing the Sabbath. He did this through the Roman Catholic Church in 325 A.D. in the Council of Nicea.
Also in the days of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, there was a law handed down through government which made everyone worship idols or be killed. These three said, ‘we’d rather die’! In Daniel 6, the government passed a law which said people had to worship something other than their idol, so people had to worship their King/Queen. Wait! This sounds much like the Monarchy of England NOW! The Queen insists she be worshiped! Believe me! Daniel said, “No, I’d rather go to the lions den or die!”
In these last days, Satan will again accomplish this feat. He especially loves to break the first 4 commandments, considering this is the most important in GOD’s LAWS! Why? Because they deal with our relationship with GOD!! So, Satan will turn many people away from GOD, and he main feature will be bringing his fallen angels as ‘aliens’ to have humanity question its origins and maker/Creator. The Antichrist will undoubtedly make a law in which people will not be able to buy or sell without the mark, but also to worship him on the day he wants to be worshiped and this will NOT be the Sabbath…SATURDAY!
Now, before I go on…let me get this straight. I am NOT a Seventh Day Adventist, nor any other MAN MADE religion. I am a Believer. A Believer of the Word of GOD! I believe in a relationship with GOD through His ONE and ONLY, Son-Jesus Christ.
The certainty of the numerical equation in this phenomena is something to be addressed. The number 144,000 wasn’t come by haphazardly. No, in fact…GOD does EVERYTHING with unequivocal intervention. He does everything with a rhyme and reason.
Twelve is the perfect number, signifying perfection of government, or of governmental perfection. No one gives us the information on this subject more clearly that E. W. Bullinger. I have his companion Bible which I couldn’t imagine not having! It is the BEST Bible given the knowledge of the fallen angels.
Twelve is the product of 3! The Trinity!
The Twelve Patriarchs.
The Twelve Sons of Israel.
The Temple of Solomon-twelve being a huge component.
Twelve in the Measurement of New Jerusalem.
Twelve persons were Anointed.
Twelve Years is how old Jesus was when He first appears in Public.
Twelve Legions of Angels mark the Perfection of Angelic Powers.
Twelve times ‘Palace’ occurs.
Twelve represents the Leadership of GOD’s church.
Twelve Judges in the Old Testament.
Twelve Thrones, judging the Twelve Tribes of Israel.
Twelve Stars above the Woman’s Head in Revelations 12.
Meanings of Each Tribal Name
1. Judah= “I will praise the Lord”
2. Ruben= “He has looked on me”
3. Gad= “Given good fortune”
4. Asher= “Happy am I”
5. Naphtali= “My wrestling”
6. Manasseh= “Making me to forget”
7. Simeon= “God hears me”
8. Levi= “Attached to me”
9. Issachar= “Purchased Me”
10. Zebulun== “Dwelling”
11.Joseph= “God will add to me”
12. Benjamin= “Son of His right hand”
Lining these up: “I will praise the Lord [for] he has looked on me [and] granted me good fortune. I am happy [because] my wrestling, God is making me to forget. God hears me [and] is attached to me. He has purchased me dwelling [and] will add to me the Son of His right Hand.”
Given this address in the context of a Jewish wedding, this is so inspiring that words cannot express the exclamation. Jesus is coming for His bride, and everything which came before Him, and after is because of Him and His Father’s love for us.
It is said that the 144,000 will have special robes. These robes represent the righteousness….Revelation 7:12-13
The white robes given to these special chosen ones will be the gift they receive from GOD for their worthiness and strength from the tribulation.
These chosen ones will sing a special song! Did you know Jesus Christ sings? It is mentioned in the Bible, only once. And He is with the Apostles.
Another little tidbit is: D had 288,000 people who worked in a rotating schedule, month in and month out. Their job? To praise GOD in the Temple! 144,000 were assigned to the Spring Feasts, and the other 144,000 were assigned to the Fall Feasts.
The 144,000 of Revelations sang a song;
No one could sing it but them? Why? Well, this does NOT mean that no one else could learn this song, it is a metaphor for the relationship between them and GOD! It’s a special connection. A personal and unique experience which is indescribable.
Song of Moses
I’ve came across this bit of Scripture before and wonder curiously what this was. Revelation 15:3-4;
In the Book of Deuteronomy in Chapter 32, we see another related Scripture;
This is a praising of the Lord, true, but it is a song of deliverance! A deliverance of captivity. This is important because this will repeat itself. Many people know the world governments are planning a massive encampment of the Believers of GOD. Here in the U.S., we have what’s called the FEMA Camps. They are a mixture of old and new prison camps which will serve as a holding and reconstitution of the people and their beliefs. It will be a division of colors deciding where you go and what happens to you. Does this not sounds horrific? It will be worse than the first time, like nothing before or ever again.
REFLECTION OF LIGHT
These 144,000 chosen ones will be a reflection of GOD. They, like the Apostles reflect GOD in their actions. No matter their profession beforehand, or their location, these special people will reflect GOD’s Loving Hand of Mercy and Strength. This is why Revelations 14, tells us that as a voice of many waters, and as a voice of great thunder, being heard as a harp harping.
Giving hope unto the lost, that they do have a Loving GOD who was, is and will always be there. They will give a sense of light unto the world, much like Israel.
In Verse 4;
We are told they are not defiled with women. What does this mean? Who are the women spoken of in Revelation? The Mystery Babylon, the Great. The Harlot! Babylon & her daughters. The ones in purple, and red and gold, with jewels and gems. These are the churches with false doctrine! It speaks of virgins, this is the people of Jesus Christ; His Bride. These special people have a purity. A Truth. A Honesty.
Revelations 14:5, tells us these people are found with no deceit;
When Jesus Christ speaks in a parable about His coming, which comes to mind? Matthew 25! The Virgins.
Five are wise, five are foolish.
There will be no Lukewarm in GOD’s Flock!
In these end days, we see a movement taking place. It seems so many Believers are being persecuted, all over the world. These people are standing for GOD, and dying in His Name. Churches around the world are being infiltrated, not only by Satan which happened long ago, but by the people who want to bring them down. Churches are being burned to the ground with the congregation within the walls. People killed because they won’t convert to another god. Does this seem to be intensifying? YES! YES! YES! Why? Because we are coming closer to the end!
So, essentially your either with or against GOD. In John 10:16;
We are told that Jesus Christ is bringing together one fold, one flock.
In John 10;
It reminds us that there is only two paths by which to follow! For or against!!
SEQUENCE OF FAITH
We are seeing a sequence of events which are bringing us into the LAST of the last days. This special sequence also applies to these chosen ones. In revelations 14:4;
These are also the first fruits! The disciples also experienced as relationship of first fruits with Jesus Christ, especially chosen like Matthew 19:28 tells us;
Jesus Christ told them that those who follow Him, in the generation when the Son of man shall sit in the throne of His Glory, these shall sit upon the twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes.
This is the time in which these specially chosen ones are making themselves known. By the Word of GOD in their works. Much like the great persecution after the Holy Spirit was let out, this again is happening!!
In Acts 8;
This tells us that GOD Works in many mysterious ways but if you understand the old and the present, you begin to see the patterns. Nothing is new under the sun.
Take notice to the many events happening, the wars against Believers! Research it! You will be shocked.
After all this takes place, the 7 last plagues will fall upon the earth. When the chosen ones have completed their works for GOD, the plagues, with the vials will encompass the world. The angels will release the winds of strife, and a time which has never been seen before will fall.
The place which GOD has set before these chosen is a city! Hebrews 11:16; Revelation 21:2;
This SPACE CITY…is moving throughout space, coming towards earth. Revelation 21;
GOD is AWESOME!!!!!
A man did some research and found that these stones spoken of in the city when placed together form a RAINBOW!
