The 144 000

Revelation 7

 

7:1 Here the angels are pictured as holding back the winds of disaster. The Lord is in control of events. He is preserving this world from total destruction for the sake of His people. There is a work to be done in them and by them as a witness to the world before the winds can be released.

7:2-3 The devastation that will precede the second coming of Christ is put off until the “servants of God” and “sealed” “in their foreheads.” The seal is a mark of God’s protection for His people. Cf. Ezekiel 9:4, 6; Exodus 12:13. It is identical to the name of God “written in their foreheads.” Revelation 14:1; 22:4. God’s name signifies His character. Exodus 34:5-7. The “forehead” is where the conscience resides and decisions are made. So the “seal” or “name” in the forehead is the character of God written in the mind.

7:9 In addition to the 144,000, we see here the great multitude of the redeemed, “which no man could number,” gathered from every nation. In their hands they have palm branches, a symbol of victory over the world and sin, and they are clothed with “white robes” which represent Christ’s righteousness

7:10-12 The spontaneous praise of the redeemed will be a joyous part of life in heaven

7:13-14 This multitude have come through great adversity. Their characters have been purified through “the blood of the Lamb.” 1 John 1:7. If we are in Christ, we will have strength to go through any affliction.” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13. He will give us peace, grace, and strength of character to live in the last days of earth’s history

7:15-17 “It is over” is Jesus’ promise to His precious children who have suffered great trials. Hunger and thirst and other hardships are no more. He wipes away their tears and He, the Bread of Life, the Source of Living Water, gives them food and quenches their thirst. Those who have made Jesus their Lord and Saviour will have the Lamb among them for all eternity. There are unimaginable joys, wonders and delights for all who accept His invitation to “come.” Revelation 3:20; Matthew 11:28.
