144,000 Virgins, Bible's Truth

Updated on February 24, 2016

The King of the Universe..

144,000 as Firstfruits to God

 

Revelation 14:4 (King James Version)

 4These 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.

Now, are we to take the term “virgin” as literal. Well, who are those who are firstfruits unto Jehovah God? Are the apostles included? Peter was a married man wasn’t he?

Does the fact that the Bible uses prostitution  to describe impure worship a factor?

At Ezekiel 23,  Jerusalem and Samaria were likened to prostitute sisters. Likewise

At Revelation 17 and 18, Babylon the Great, is referred to as the mother of harlots [prostitutes], signifying impure or false religions.

Let us examine “firstfruits” a little closer.

Romans 8:23 (American Standard Version)

 23 And not only so, but ourselves also, who have the first-fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for our adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.

As Christ was raised by Jehovah as an immortal Spirit, so will those who form the 144,000.

 

 

1 Peter 3:18 (American Standard Version)

 18 Because Christ also suffered for sins once, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God; being put to death in the flesh, but made alive in the spirit;

Also,

 

1 Peter 1:3 (American Standard Version)

 3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who according to his great mercy begat us again unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead,

And,

 

1 Corinthians 15:50-55 (American Standard Version)

 50 Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption.

 51 Behold, I tell you a mystery: We all shall not sleep, but we shall all be changed,

 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

 53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.

 54 But when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall come to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.

 55 O death, where is thy victory? O death, where is thy sting?

Supported by:

Revelation 20:6 (American Standard Version)

 6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: over these the second death hath no power; but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.

 

Please note that the act of forbidding to marry, is condemned, in the Bible itself.

 

1 Timothy 4:3 (King James Version)

 3Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

Also, Jesus himself answered the Sadducees, with their resurrection question.

 

Matthew 22:29-30 (King James Version)

 29Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

 30For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
