    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.

    This doesn't really answer my question.  Many churches teach that this group of 144,000 thousand will witness to the lost during the tribulation.  My question regards where this teaching comes from biblically.  I do not believe that the reference to their all being virgins is a symbolic one.  This is a literal choosing of 144,000 males who are without guile and are virgins scripture does not state that these individuals are adults or children.   When we see them mentioned again they are in God's temple.  I can not find any other reference biblically regarding these people.

    Good luck finding virgin males. There will be NO tribulation. Just live your life with hope and love. Hopefully those Gods of hate, fear, and war will go away.

    Revelation 7, you will notice there are 12 tribes listed, Ephraim and Manasseh are listed instead of Joesph, which leaves Dan out because they left their territory allotted to them in Joshua 19 and moved up North next to the pagans and were the first tribe to introduce idolatry to Israel.

    Rev 7:4 calls them the servants of God, they will be Jewish evangelists and then 7:9 tells of the great numbers of souls saved from their ministry.

    You have the wrong knowledge.The 144,000 is already in heaven that was saved from the 12 tribes of Israel under the old testament covenant.
    The great tribulation shall not take place until the 3ed of the 7 hidden seals is open by Jesus Christ.It shall be 144,000 virgin men that shall come forth,and not 12000.
