The Revelation (Prophecies of the Revelation Part 7)

Updated on August 6, 2017

The Revelation (Prophecies of the Revelation)

Part 7 - Jesus and the 144,000


In the Bible, in the book of The Revelation, we can find prophecies regarding the end of the world. The Revelation was written by John, who had been a disciple of Jesus Christ. He wrote it after being exiled to the island of Patmos because of his testimony of the Word of God and of Jesus Christ. John had prophetic visions about terrible events that will happen at the end of the world. He kept a record of what he saw and heard, and wrote it in The Revelation.

In this article, we can read about the 144,000 servants of God who will be protected during the final phase of this world's history. These servants are described in Chapters Seven and Fourteen in the book of The Revelation.

Revelation, Chapter 7, Verses 1 through 8:

After these things I, John, saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth. They were holding the four winds of the earth so that the wind would not blow upon the earth, the sea, or any tree. Then I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called loudly to the four angels, to whom power was given to harm the earth and the sea. He was saying, "Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees until we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads."

I heard the number of those who were sealed, and it was 144,000 of all the tribes of the children of Israel. There were 12,000 from each tribe as follows:

There were 12,000 of the tribe of Juda who were sealed, and 12,000 of the tribe of Reuben, and 12,000 of the tribe of Gad, and 12,000 of the tribe of Aser, and 12,000 of the tribe of Nepthalim, and 12,000 of the tribe of Manasses.

There were 12,000 of the tribe of Simeon who were sealed, and 12,000 of the tribe of Levi, and 12,000 of the tribe of Issachar, and 12,000 of the tribe of Zabulon, and 12,000 of the tribe of Joseph, and 12,000 of the tribe of Benjamin.

The final phase of the world's history will be a seven-year time of trouble called the Tribulation Period. The 144,000 servants of God will be protected during that time when many disastrous events will occur as a result of God's judgment of this evil world.

John had prophetic visions of these events, but before that he envisioned 144,000 Jewish people. He watched as they were sealed with the Seal of God, meaning that they will be protected from harm during the Tribulation Period. These were 12,000 Jews from each of the 12 tribes of Israel who will be sealed.

Revelation, Chapter 14, Verses 1 through 5:

I looked and saw a Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with Him were 144,000 who had His Father's name written on their foreheads. Then I heard a voice from Heaven, like the sound of many waters, and like loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists, playing their harps, and singing a new song in front of the throne in the presence of the four creatures and the elders. No one could learn that song except the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth.

The 144,000 are those who had not defiled themselves with women, because they are virgins. They follow the Lamb wherever He goes. They had been redeemed from among men, being the first choice of God and of the Lamb. No deception was found in their mouths, and they are without fault in the presence of God.

John saw Jesus standing on Mount Zion. There were 144,000 Jewish people with Him and they had God's name written on their foreheads. This symbolizes that Jesus will protect these Jews during the Tribulation Period.

During the Tribulation, the Antichrist will come into power and become leader of a satanic world government. Those who refuse to worship the Antichrist will be killed. He will persecute the Jews and try to have them killed, but Jesus will protect them.

John heard a loud voice from heaven and he heard the sound of harpists, playing their harps, and singing a new song. No one could learn the song except the 144,000 Jewish people. These Jews will turn to Jesus and become Christians soon after the Tribulation Period begins. They will know that Jesus is their Lord and savior. Those in Heaven will celebrate the Jews becoming Christians, and will sing a song of redemption in the presence of God.

The 144,000 Jews are those who had not corrupted themselves by becoming involved in immoral activity, and had remained pure in heart. They follow Jesus everywhere, meaning they will apply His teachings in their lives no matter how badly they are treated. They will be redeemed, and will be the first to be forgiven for their sins. These 144,000 Jewish people are not deceitful, and someday they will be perfect in the presence of God.

From the Bible:

I, John, saw another angel flying in the middle of heaven. He had the everlasting gospel to preach to those who live on the earth, to every nation, and tribe, and to people of all languages. He proclaimed with a loud voice, "Fear God, and give glory to Him, because the hour of His judgment has come; and worship Him who made the heaven, the earth, the sea, and the springs of water."

(Revelation, Chapter 14, Verses 6 and 7)
