“1After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: 3“Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” 4Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.” Rev 7:1-4 NIV
Sealed for the Day of Judgment;
Untouched by the seven last plagues;
A seal placed on their foreheads;
12,000 from each of the twelve tribes.
Seals contain three elements—
The owner, title and jurisdiction [territory];
All found in the fourth commandment,
In honor of the Lord’s creation.
The 144,000 are the first fruits,
Followed by a great multitude,
That no man can number;
All praising God in deep gratitude.
They have washed their robes
In the precious blood of the Lamb;
Come out of great tribulation;
Held on faithfully to the great I AM.
The Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath [Mark 2:28],
That was made holy for man’s blessing.
The 144,000 acknowledged the covenant;
Man’s traditions were not observing.
They did not worship the ‘beast and his image’ [Rev 14:12,9],
But obeyed their Lord instead;
Had a knowledge of history and biblical truth;
Not by men’s Mithraic fables led.
In the sealing of the 144,000,
There’s no Replacement Theology,
But one complete ‘new man’,
Holding to the same ideology.
Those who accept the true Sabbath
And believe in Christ as their Savior;
Jew and Gentile led by the Holy Spirit;
Their Father in heaven to honor!
