Revelation 7: 1-8….but wait…God’s mark and seal first!
Hallelujah! The global catastrophe of seal 6 is put on hold by God! He has the angels hold things back until God’s people are marked and sealed as His redeemed and protected! They number 144,000 with 12.000 from each of the 12 tribes of Israel (12x 12 x 1000. Remember that Gentile believers are grafted in through Yeshua Jesus from the tribe of Judah, as the promised Messianic Seed of Abraham. In fact, all of God’s people are now believers and followers of Yeshua Jesus!
I do not believe this is an actual number 144,000 people, but rather symbolic. In the Hebrew understanding, the number 12 signified perfect complete governmental/administrative foundation for God’s power and authority. The number 1000 meant multitudes, meaning too many to count in a short time. So, God is marking and sealing His redeemed people, His bond-servants, to protect them from the catastrophe on hold, as well as give them administrative power and authority in earth for the coming days of tribulation.
They come from all 12 tribes that had been scattered to all nations. They are His one body, but in manty various places. During the coming tribulation, they will bear witness and give testimony of Yeshua Jesus, evangelize, teach, preach, and even do miracles in the authority and name of Yeshua Jesus! There will be great revival alongside global devastation and destruction of world systems, as well as spiritual warfare.
John 14:12, Yeshua Jesus said, “I assure you and most solemnly say, anyone who believes in Me as Savior will also do the things that I do, and He will do even greater things than these in extent and outreach, because I am going to the Father.”
Matthew 9: 37-38, “Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is indeed plentiful, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into the harvest.”
Who is willing to join the 144,000 marked and sealed bond-servants of God in the power and authority of Yeshua Jesus with His Holy Spirit?
Now, things are ready to release the 4 winds of the 6th seal!
