THE 144,000 SEALED SERVANTS OF THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY
I come this moment in time in The Mighty name of The LORD Jesus Christ. In the name of The LORD will we be sharing this moment in time on a very very important topic that is at the very core and epitome of this very significant dispensation in the countdown of events that are known as: The End-Time events.
So The LORD is going to help us understand deeper and will open up more on this theme of our discussion: The 144,000 Sealed.
Many people have written to me asking about The 144,000 and so this moment in time, The LORD is going to help us get a very deep insight and understanding on this very time defining dispensation.
The book of Revelation 7:1-8 states as follows “After 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. 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: “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.” Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel. From the tribe of Judah 12,000 were sealed, from the tribe of Reuben 12,000, from the tribe of Gad 12,000, from the tribe of Asher 12,000,from the tribe of Naphtali 12,000,from the tribe of Manasseh 12,000, from the tribe of Simeon 12,000,from the tribe of Levi 12,000,from the tribe of Issachar 12,000, from the tribe of Zebulun 12,000,from the tribe of Joseph 12,000,from the tribe of Benjamin 12,000.”
From the above you will note that, there will be a judgment and a wrath that will have been decreed on the land and the sea, meaning that a time to judge and an outpour of the wrath of God will be at hand and the angels who had been assigned by The LORD God Almighty to punish the earth will already have taken their position and so will be on standby awaiting the final command from The LORD. But before they can get the ultimate command to move in and carry out the judgment and pour out the wrath of God onto the earth, they will be held back by a loud voice that essentially will be instructing them to wait a little bit for the seal of The Living God to be put first on the chosen 144,000 servants of The LORD. And that’s why the loud voice told them: “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.” It’s extremely very important to note that the wrath of God Almighty is only poured out on the earth once the rapture of the bride of Christ has occurred; and so this wrath is poured during The Great Tribulation period.
This essentially means that the moment for the Great Tribulation on the earth is at hand, but God Almighty has a grand plan of sealing those whom He has chosen and anointed to be His end-time servants at this particular dispensation. These will be those whom The LORD has marked and set apart for The glory and honor of His name. The LORD was thus sealing an army of His servants to serve Him in the midst of this dispensation that was ultimately going to usher in The Great Tribulation. This is an army of witnesses that is going to witness to the people of the earth both just before the rapture and also after the rapture during The Great Tribulation period; And that’s why it states that: “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.”
The number of the sealed servants of God is 144,000. These will be an equal number from the 12 tribes of Israel. It is very very important to note that the Israelites (The Jews) over many centuries have spread and scattered across the earth and so the lineage of the Israelites (Jews) is to be found also in almost all the corners of the earth. It’s only The LORD God Almighty, The LORD Jesus Christ and The Holy Spirit who know which people are part of this scattered lineage across the globe; and so out of this lineage would the 144,000 sealed emerge. This essentially means that the 144,000 sealed servants of God are not necessarily residing in the land of Israel at the moment. These sealed servants of The Living God will minister not only to the Israelites but also the whole of the earth.
It’s also very very important to note that it is The LORD who chooses the 144,000; they don’t choose themselves, but The LORD in His wisdom chooses them, and then mark their forehead and so seals them completely for His glory and honor. That’s why it says: “until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.”
The loud voice of The Angel of The LORD referred to the 144,000 sealed as: The Servants of God. When we check out in the book of Joel 2:28-29 “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.” This therefore means that the servants of God whom Joel saw earlier on and The LORD showed him that afterwards He will pour out His Spirit on His servants; The servants that The LORD showed Joel were essentially also part of The 144,000 sealed whom The LORD was showing Joel that a time is coming in the later dispensation where He will raise and anoint them with the power of The Holy Spirit to serve Him as: The Servants of God.
The book of Revelation 14:1-5 also states as follows: “Then I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads.” And I heard a sound from heaven like the roar of rushing waters and like a loud peal of thunder. The sound I heard was like that of harpists playing their harps. And they sang a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and the elders.No one could learn the song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth. These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever he goes. They were purchased from among mankind and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb. No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.”
We can note from this revelation given to Apostle John by The LORD that The LORD Jesus Christ is going to stand on Mount Zion with His servants: The 144,000 sealed. And they are going to sing before the throne of God Almighty. In this very mighty revelation of The LORD to John The Apostle, we also find what is stated as follows: These are those who did not defile themselves with women, for they remained virgins. This essentially means that the 144,000 sealed servants of God had set themselves apart for the glory and honor of The LORD, and so they did not contaminate themselves by engaging in prostitution with The World i.e. they separated themselves from the lure, the desires and the pleasures that The World had to offer; they thus stood for absolute Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. They have been washed by the blood of The LORD Jesus Christ and sanctified and baptized by The Spirit of Truth (The Holy Spirit) and they have been ordained in a white garment that they are now wearing; a clean, spotless and bright spiritual garment: They have totally forsaken the broad road that the World provides and they are now set on the narrow road that leads to eternal life in the Kingdom of God Almighty. That’s why it is even said of them: “No lie was found in their mouths; they are blameless.”
We also find out about these 144,000 sealed that: “They follow the Lamb wherever he goes.” Meaning that they are sealed and anointed by The LORD to serve Him; and that’s why they are called: The Servants of God. The LORD has actually poured out His Spirit upon them so that they operate under the will and the command of The LORD. The LORD is their Master and Commander. They only act as per The LORD’s instruction and command. They are bold in preaching the testimony of The LORD Jesus Christ (The Lamb of God).
Another very critical angle about the 144,000 sealed is what is stated as follows: “They were purchased from among mankind and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb”, meaning that just as during the harvest, the first fruits are required to be taken before The LORD as the book of Leviticus 23:10-14 states which essentially means that Leviticus 23:10-14 is a mirror image of the rapture of the bride of Christ as it emphasizes the harvest (The rapture) and then the presentation of the first fruits(The 144,000 sealed servants of God) to God and The LORD Jesus Christ. And so Leviticus 23:10-14 states: “The Lord said to Moses, “Speak to the Israelites and say to them: ‘When you enter the land I am going to give you and you reap its harvest, bring to the priest a sheaf of the first grain you harvest. He is to wave the sheaf before theLord so it will be accepted on your behalf; the priest is to wave it on the day after the Sabbath. On the day you wave the sheaf, you must sacrifice as a burnt offering to the Lord a lamb a year old without defect, together with its grain offering of two-tenths of an ephah of the finest flour mixed with olive oil—a food offering presented to theLord, a pleasing aroma—and its drink offering of a quarter of a hin of wine. You must not eat any bread, or roasted or new grain, until the very day you bring this offering to your God. This is to be a lasting ordinance for the generations to come, wherever you live.” This means that during the rapture, the saints of The LORD will be raptured into Heaven and during the same time, the 144,000 sealed will also be presented “and offered as firstfruits to God and the Lamb.”
Isaiah, The Prophet of The LORD was also shown these sealed servants of God and The LORD described them as follows in the book of Isaiah 60:1-4 “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you. Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you”
Let me conclude by stating that I believe and know that the 144,000 sealed (to be sealed) servants of God are alive and are on the earth even though only The LORD knows their identity and them to whom The LORD has revealed to the identity of His sealed 144,000 servants.
PREPARE THE WAY IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!
I acknowledge today that you are LORD and savior of all mankind,
and today I have recognized my shortfall,
I repent and turn away from all sin.
Please cover me with your precious blood,
and establish your word in my life,
that I may be found in righteousness and holiness
and write my name in your book of life
and baptize me with the power of the Holy Spirit
in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Shalom!!! Shalom!!! Shalom!!!
