GOD's 144,000

 

2 Timothy 2:19

King James Version

19 Nevertheless the foundation of God 

standeth sure, 

having this seal, 

The Lord knoweth them that are his. 

And, 

let every one that nameth the name of Christ 

depart from iniquity.


Who are God's 144,000?

Scripture reveals them.

Revelation 7:1-8

King James Version

7 And after these things I saw four angels standing 

on the four corners of the earth, 

holding the four winds of the earth, 

that the wind should not blow on the earth, 

nor on the sea, nor on any tree.

2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, 

having the seal of the living God: 

and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, 

to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,

3 Saying, 

Hurt not the earth, 

neither the sea, 

nor the trees, 

till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.

4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: 

and there were sealed 

an hundred and forty and four thousand 

of all the tribes of the children of Israel.

5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. 

Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. 

Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.

6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. 

Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. 

Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.

7 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. 

Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. 

Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.

8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. 

Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. 

Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.


Revelation 14:1

King James Version

14 And I looked, 

and, 

lo, 

a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, 

and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, 

having his Father's name written in their foreheads.


Revelation 14:2-3

King James Version

2 And I heard a voice from heaven, 

as the voice of many waters, 

and as the voice of a great thunder

and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps:

3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, 

and before the four beasts, 

and the elders: 

and no man could learn that song 

but the hundred and forty and four thousand, 

which were redeemed from the earth.


Revelation 14:4-5

King James Version

4 These are they which were not defiled with women; 

for they are virgins. 

These are they which follow the Lamb 

whithersoever he goeth. 

These were redeemed from among men, 

being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.

5 And in their mouth was found no guile: 

for they are without fault before the throne of God.


What about the rest of us?

What happens to us?

Read about the RAPTURE here.

That's how we can all prepare for when Jesus has His faithful meet Him up in the air.

Which can happen ANY moment GOD chooses.
