Revelation 7 HCSB 1 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, restraining the four winds of the earth so that no Revelation 07 - 144,000 sealed - Scene 01 - Four angels hold back the four winds 980x706px colwind could blow on the earth or on the sea or on any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel, who had the seal of the living God rise up from the east. He cried out in a loud voice to the four angels who were empowered to harm theRevelation 07 - 144,000 sealed - Scene 02 - Angel with God's seal 980x706px col earth and the sea: 3 "Don't harm the earth or the sea or the trees until we seal the slaves of our God on their foreheads." 4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 sealed from every tribe of the Israelites:....

In Revelation chapter 6, the judgments of God are causing death and destruction every where. The elements are unnormal and people are suffering. Sounds some what like today, but unlike today these events will be all at once on a global scale. Right in the midst of this, God pushes the pause button and everything stops. Out of no where there is quiet and stillness. How and why did God do this?

How - God will have angels restraining the storm winds from blowing. Take a moment and think about the power of angels. They keep the wind from doing what it is created to do, blow.

Why - It is time for Israel to receive God's promise of salvation. There will be 144,000 from the 12 tribes of Israel who have faith in Jesus Christ for the purpose of preaching the gospel. They will be marked or have a seal on their forehead that tells the angels not to harm them. They will be marked with the name of the Son and the Father (Revelation 14:1). They will live through the Great Tribulation, preaching the gospel and witnessing things that will be jaw dropping. They will watch Christ Jesus put His foot down on the Mount of Olive and see this mountain be split into two with a valley between them (Zechariah 14:4). They will watch Christ destroy all nations determined to destroy Israel.

God Fights

Zechariah 12:1-6 tells us God is going to destroy the enemies of Israel and Jerusalem. Christ will appear to Israel and when they see His pierced hands, feet, and side they will repent and be full of sorrow as the truth is revealed to them (Zechariah 12:10).

In Zechariah 13 we find that 2/3 of the people die in that war and only 1/3 of Israel remains alive.

Beyond Expression

In Revelation 7:9-17 we find so many people at the throne of God John couldn't count them all. And for all you people who think there will be segregation read these verses over and over. Any way, they are free from their body of sin. They are out of this cursed world. They are comforted and healed of their tears and hurts. They are and forever will be drinking living water, following their Shepherd, worshipping and serving God in His presence at His throne and under His wing of protection. There is no way to truly comprehend this but there is enough to say,

Revelation 22:20 KJV He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus. 21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
