& The Bride of Christ

All of Gods People are Sealed

Ezekiel 9:

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.

7 And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with

the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.

8 And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was

left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt

thou destroy all the residue of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury

upon Jerusalem?

9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and

Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city

full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the

earth, and the LORD seeth not.

10 And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have

pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.

11 And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which had the inkhorn

by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast

commanded me.

Ecclesiastes 1:9

The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which

is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing

under the sun.

Revelation 7:

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 (sphragizo) 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.

144,000 of the Tribe of Israel is sealed by God during the Great

Tribulation in fulfillment of His promise:

Romans 9:

27 Esaias also crieth concerning Israel, Though the number of the

children of Israel be as the sand of the sea, a remnant shall be

saved:

28 For he will finish the work, and cut it short in righteousness:

because a short work will the Lord make upon the earth.

Israel will come in when the time of the Gentiles is fulfilled:

Romans 11:

25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this

mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that

blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the

Gentiles be come in.

Luke 21:

22 For these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are

written may be fulfilled.

23 But woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give

suck, in those days! for there shall be great distress in the land,

and wrath upon this people.

24 And they shall fall by the edge of the sword, and shall be led

away captive into all nations: and Jerusalem shall be trodden

down of the Gentiles, until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.

Joel 2:

30 And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood,

and fire, and pillars of smoke.

31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into

blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.

32 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the

name of the LORD shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in

Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the LORD hath said, and in the

remnant whom the LORD shall call.

The Gentiles are also sealed:

II Corinthians 1:

21 Now he which stablisheth us with you in Christ, and hath

anointed us, is God;

22 Who hath also sealed (sphragizo) us, and given the earnest of

the Spirit in our hearts.

Ephesians 1:

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 (sphragizo) with that holy Spirit of promise,

Ephesians 4:

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed

(sphragizo) unto the day of redemption.

The Seal of God is to differentiate between the redeemed and the

unredeemed on the earth.

This is a vision of all God’s people Jew & Gentile after they have

been redeemed and come out of the Great Tribulation:

Revelation 7:

9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man

could number, of all nations (Jew & Gentile Collectively), and

kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and

before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their

hands;

10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which

sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.

11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the

elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their

faces, and worshipped God,

12 Saying, Amen: Blessing (1), and glory (2), and wisdom (3), and

thanksgiving (4), and honour (5), and power (6), and might (7), be

unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.

13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are

these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?

14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me,

These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have

washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the

Lamb.

15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him

day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall

dwell among them. 16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst

any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.

17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed

them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and

God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.

Same Vision of the Final End:

Revelation 21:

3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the

tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and

they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and

be their God. 4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;

and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying,

neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are

passed away.

The Ultimate Climax is The Bride of Christ, God’s Holy Temple,

True Israel, the Body of Jesus built on the foundation of the 12

tribes (Revelation 21:12-14), twelve apostles (Matthew 10:2) &

Jesus being the Chief Cornerstone.

Ephesians 2:

19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but

fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God;

20 And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets,

Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;

21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an

holy temple in the Lord:

22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God

through the Spirit.

A city is built together of many centralized habitations.

Jesus is the bridgegroom Luke 5:35

Luke 3:

29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom:

Isaiah 54:

5 For thy Maker is thine husband; the LORD of hosts is his name;

and thy Redeemer the Holy One of Israel; The God of the whole

earth shall he be called.
