Why is it tought that 144,000 of the tribes of Israel will witness on earth during the tribulation?


I see only two references to this group in the bible. One refers to there being 12,000 virgin males chosen out of each tribe of Israel and the other refers to these 144,000 virgin males now in heaven serving the Lord in His temple. Where does this idea originate which states that these individuals will be witnesses to the lost during the tribulation. I can find absolutely no confirmation of this scripturally.
