The 144000 Jews from the 12 tribes of Israel are the ‘Woman’ who is pursued by a dragon in Revelations 12

Posted by gospelclips on December 28, 2016

Revelation 12:1-6

A great sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head.  She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.  Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads.  Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that it might devour her child the moment he was born.  She gave birth to a son, a male child, who “will rule all the nations with an iron scepter.” And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.  The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.

Here the woman is Israel.  She was pregnant and about to give birth to a male child (Jesus) who will rule the nations with an iron sceptre.  Her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.  (so there can be no doubt who the male child is – Jesus).  The woman fled into the wilderness to a place prepared by God where she could be taken care of for 1260 days.

Revelation 12:13-17

When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child.  The woman was given the two wings of a great eagle, so that she might fly to the place prepared for her in the wilderness, where she would be taken care of for a time, times and half a time, out of the serpent’s reach.  Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent.  But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth.  Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring—those who keep God’s commands and hold fast their testimony about Jesus.

The 144000 taken from the 12 tribes of Israel and sealed are most likely this Woman.  The 144000 are sealed so as to be protected from the Judgments of God.   The woman was given two wings of a great eagle so that she may fly to a place prepared for her in the wilderness out of the serpent’s reach for times time and half a time (1260 days = 3.5 years = 42 months) which is the duration of the great tribulation.  The serpent spewed water from it’s mouth like a river to overtake the woman and sweep her away but the Earth helped the woman by opening it’s mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out.

The dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to wage war against the rest of her offspring (the Christians) – those who keep God’s commands and hold fast to their testimony about Jesus.

If the 144000 and the ‘Woman’ are one in the same, then the sealing of the 144000 is for 1260 days which is the duration of the great tribulation.

Rev 7:1-4

After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea:  “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.”  Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.

The angels are instructed not to harm the land or the sea or the trees until a seal is placed on the foreheads of the 144000.  This must take place before the Trumpet Judgments are sounded.  If the trumpet Judgments are simultaneous with the seals then it would mean that the 144000 are sealed at the beginning of the Great Tribulation.

The 144000 Jews and The Sheep Nations that Survive Armageddon live on Earth during the Millennium to fulfill promises God made to Israel in the Old Testament.

Posted by gospelclips on May 5, 2014

The Harvest at the End of the Age. A Great Multitude of believers (Wheat) are raptured to be with Christ when he comes on the clouds at the Seventh Trumpet at the End of the Great Tribulation. This co-incides with the First Resurrection which is when dead believers (also wheat) are raised to be with Christ. False Christians (Weeds) are also harvested from the Earth at this time by an angle in charge of the fire and they are thrown in to Hell for eternal punishment. The Nations are left on Earth and are divided in to the Sheep and the Goats according to how they treated God’s people. Those that persecuted God’s people (the Goats) are thrown into the Lake of Fire. Those that were Kind to God’s people (the Sheep)  receive a reward.  They will become the Nations on Earth during the Millennium and in Eternity if they do not rebel against God when Satan is released form his prison at the End of the Millennium. The Select 144000 Jews will be God’s priests on Earth during the Millennium in fulfillment of Old Testament Prophesy.

The 144000 in Revelation Ch 14 are mature firstfruits (Wheat) who get their inheritance before the great multitude of believers (Also Wheat) — The 144000 in Revelation Ch 7 are Jews taken from each of the 12 tribes of Israel and are sealed before the seventh seal is opened so as to be protected from God’s wrath

 

There are two groups of 144000.

The first group of 144000 in Revelations Chapter 7 are Jews taken from the 12 tribes of Israel. They will be on Earth during the Millennium along with the Sheep Nations who survive Armageddon. They will repopulate the Earth to fulfill the promises that God made to the Jews in the Old Testament. During the Millennium, Christ will reign in Heaven with his Bride composed of all believers that will be resurrected or raptured to be with Him when he comes again.

The second group of 144000 in Revelation Chapter 14 are Christians. They are raptured to go to heaven to be with Christ before the Great Tribulation starts. They are the first fruits from among the Living (Christ was the first fruit from the dead). The Great Multitude of believers from every tribe, nation and tongue are not raptured until the end of the Great Tribuation when the Seventh Seal is opened and the Seventh Trumpet sounds

144000 Jews are sealed when the seventh seal is opened. They become the God’s People on Earth during the Millennium to fulfill the prophesies given to Israel in the Old Testament.

Posted by gospelclips on August 12, 2012

An illustration of the Parable of the Prodigal son incorporating New and Old testament Believers. Sons represent Born Again believers. Jews were Born Again if they were circumcised in Heart by the Spirit (Older Sons). New Testament Believers are Born Again if they have received the Spirit by Baptism (Younger Sons).  Unlike servants, only Sons  who represent Born Again Believers will go to heaven when they die or when Christ returns. The 144000 Jews are sealed when the seventh seal is opened. They are a select group of the Jews (like firstfruits) who as a reward, become the Camp of God’s People on Earth during the Millennium to fulfill the prophesies given to Israel in the Old Testament. At the end of the Millennium, God’s Elect will descend from Heaven as the Bride of Christ to become the New Jerusalem (composed of Old and New Sons). In Eternity, all of God’s Children will be combined into one New Jerusalem. During the Millennium, the New Testament Believers will be reigning with Christ in Heaven while a selection of Jews (the 144000) and Pagans (the Sheep Nations) fulfill the promises that God made to the Jews in the Old Testament to restore the Kingdom of Israel as priests to the Nations.
