SEAL of GOD

 


2 Corinthians 1:22

King James Version

22 Who hath also sealed us, 

and given the earnest of the Spirit 

in our hearts.


What does it mean to have the SEAL of GOD?

Holy Spirit led me to the following verses, for all of us to explore, and understand.

Exodus 39:30

King James Version

30 And they made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, 

and wrote upon it a writing, 

like to the engravings of a signet, 

Holiness To The Lord.


Deuteronomy 32:34-35

King James Version

34 Is not this laid up in store with me, 

and sealed up among my treasures?

35 To me belongeth vengeance and recompence; 

their foot shall slide in due time: 

for the day of their calamity is at hand,

 and the things that shall come upon them make haste.


Isaiah 8:16

King James Version

16 Bind up the testimony, 

seal the law among my disciples.


Ezekiel 9:4-6

King James Version

4 And the Lord said unto him, 

Go through the midst of the city, 

through the midst of Jerusalem, 

and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men 

that sigh and that cry for 

all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.

5 And to the others he said in mine hearing, 

Go ye after him through the city, 

and smite: 

let not your eye spare, 

neither have ye pity:

6 Slay utterly old and young, 

both maids, 

and little children, 

and women: 

but come not near any man 

upon whom is the mark; 

and begin at my sanctuary

Then they began at the ancient men 

which were before the house.


Daniel 9:24

King James Version

24 Seventy weeks are determined 

upon thy people 

and upon thy holy city

to finish the transgression, 

and to make an end of sins, 

and to make reconciliation for iniquity, 

and to bring in everlasting righteousness, 

and to seal up the vision and prophecy, 

and to anoint the most Holy.


Daniel 12:4

King James Version

4 But thou, 

O Daniel, 

shut up the words, 

and seal the book,

 even to the time of the end

many shall run to and fro, 

and knowledge shall be increased.


Daniel 12:8-9

King James Version

8 And I heard, 

but I understood not

then said I, 

O my Lord, 

what shall be the end of these things?

9 And he said, 

Go thy way, 

Daniel: 

for the words are closed up and sealed 

till the time of the end.


John 6:27

King James Version

27 Labour not for the meat which perisheth, 

but for that meat which endureth unto everlasting life, 

which the Son of man shall give unto you: 

for him hath God the Father sealed.


2 Corinthians 1:21-22

King James Version

21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, 

and hath anointed us, 

is God;

22 Who hath also sealed us, 

and given the earnest of the Spirit 

in our hearts.


Romans 4:11

King James Version

11 And he received the sign of circumcision, 

a seal of the righteousness of the faith 

which he had yet being uncircumcised

that he might be the father of all them that believe, 

though they be not circumcised; 

that righteousness might be imputed 

unto them also:


Ephesians 1:13

King James Version

13 In whom ye also trusted, 

after that ye heard the word of truth, 

the gospel of your salvation: 

in whom also after that ye believed, 

ye were sealed 

with that holy Spirit of promise,


Ephesians 4:30

King James Version

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, 

whereby ye are sealed 

unto the day of redemption.


Revelation 5:1-10

King James Version

5 And I saw in the right hand of him 

that sat on the throne 

a book written within 

and on the backside, 

sealed with seven seals.

2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, 

Who is worthy to open the book, 

and to loose the seals thereof?

3 And no man in heaven, 

nor in earth, 

neither under the earth, 

was able to open the book, 

neither to look thereon.

4 And I wept much, 

because no man was found worthy to open and to read the book, 

neither to look thereon.

5 And one of the elders saith unto me, 

Weep not: 

behold, 

the Lion of the tribe of Judah, 

the Root of David, 

hath prevailed to open the book, 

and to loose the seven seals thereof.

6 And I beheld, 

and, lo, 

in the midst of the throne and of the four beasts, 

and in the midst of the elders, 

stood a Lamb as it had been slain, 

having seven horns and seven eyes

which are the seven Spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.

7 And he came and took the book 

out of the right hand of him 

that sat upon the throne.

8 And when he had taken the book, 

the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down 

before the Lamb, 

having every one of them harps, 

and golden vials full of odours, 

which are the prayers of saints.

9 And they sung a new song, saying, 

Thou art worthy to take the book, 

and to open the seals thereof: 

for thou wast slain, 

and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood 

out of every kindred, 

and tongue,

 and people, 

and nation;

10 And hast made us unto our God kings and priests: 

and we shall reign on the earth.


Revelation 7:2-4

King James Version

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.


Revelation 8:1

King James Version

8 And when he had opened the seventh seal, 

there was silence in heaven 

about the space of half an hour.


Revelation 9:4

King James Version

4 And it was commanded them 

that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, 

neither any green thing, 

neither any tree; 

but only those men 

which have not the seal of God 

in their foreheads.


Revelation 10:1-7

King James Version

10 And I saw another mighty angel 

come down from heaven, 

clothed with a cloud

and a rainbow was upon his head, 

and his face was as it were the sun, 

and his feet as pillars of fire:

2 And he had in his hand a little book open

and he set his right foot upon the sea, 

and his left foot on the earth,

3 And cried with a loud voice, 

as when a lion roareth: 

and when he had cried, 

seven thunders uttered their voices.

4 And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, 

I was about to write: 

and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, 

Seal up those things 

which the seven thunders uttered, 

and write them not.

5 And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea 

and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven,

6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, 

who created heaven

and the things that therein are, 

and the earth, 

and the things that therein are, 

and the sea, 

and the things which are therein, 

that there should be time no longer:

7 But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, 

when he shall begin to sound, 

the mystery of God should be finished, 

as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.


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.


The next post is on those 144,000.
