All of Gods People are Sealed
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
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
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
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.
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:
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
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:
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.
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.
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.
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,
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:
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
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
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:
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
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.
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
29 He that hath the bride is the bridegroom:
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.
