0005 Revelation Ch. 7 0005 Revelation Ch. 7 Presentation Transcript

  • Sealing 144,000 and The Martyrs Praise Revelation 7 – 8:1 (A break in the action to fill in what happened up to the end of CH. 6)
  • Command to the 4 Angels
    • Rev 7:1 And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
  • Sealing the 144,000 Jewish Evangelists
    • R ev 7:2 And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
  • Sealing the 144,000 Jewish Evangelists
    • Rev 7:3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
  • Sealing the 144,000 Jewish Evangelists
    • Rev 7:4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed a hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
  • Sealing the 144,000 Jewish Evangelists
    • These 144,000 evangelists reap a great harvest of souls for God – (Rev. 7:14-17)
  • Sealing the 144,000 Jewish Evangelists
    • Judah 12,000
    • Reuben 12,000
    • Gad 12,000
    • Asher 12,000
    • Naphtali 12,000
    • Manasseh 12,000
    • Simeon 12,000
    • Levi 12,000
    • Issachar 12,000
    • Zebulon 12,000
    • Joseph 12,000
    • Benjamin 12,000
  • Conspicuous omissions
    • Dan
    • Ephraim
  • Omission of Dan and Ephraim
    • The omission of Dan and Ephraim has caused some Bible students to come to the conclusion that they are lost tribes. But they were not really lost in the sense that God cannot find and restore them.
  • Omission of Dan and Ephraim
    • In fact, in Ezekiel 48 we find them listed again as part of the prophesied restored nation of Israel for the Millennium and presumably thereafter.
  • Omission of Dan and Ephraim
    • We can only guess as to why they were omitted in this list of evangelists that God sent out to evangelize the world. But our guess would probably be wrong.
  • Omission of Dan and Ephraim
    • The most obvious reason is that from the time of the Judges, Dan was assimilated into the other tribes and later Ephraim could have become part of Manasseh.
  • Martyrs Worship
    • Rev 7:9 After these things I looked, and lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, out of all nations and kindreds and people and tongues, stood before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palms in their hands.
  • Martyrs Worship
  • Martyrs Worship
    • Rev 7:10 And they cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God sitting on the throne, and to the Lamb .
  • These are from the Great Tribulation
    • Rev 7:14… And [the angel] said to me, “ These are the ones who came out of the great tribulation and have washed their robes, and have whitened them in the blood of the Lamb. ”
  • These are from the Great Tribulation
    • Rev 7:15 “ Therefore they are before the throne of God, and they serve Him day and night in His temple. And He sitting on the throne will dwell among them. ”
  • These are from the Great Tribulation
    • Rev 7:16 They will not hunger any more, nor thirst any more, nor will the sun light on them, nor any heat.
  • These are from the Great Tribulation
    • Rev 7:17 For the Lamb who is in the midst of the throne will feed them and will lead them to the fountains of living waters. And God will wipe away all tears from their eyes.
  • The greatest harvest of all times
    • Note: The number boggles John’s mind. It could possibly be up to 1 BILLION souls brought to salvation during the time of the first 3 ½ years of the Tribulation.
  • The Seventh Seal: The Awful Silence (Revelation 8:1)
    • “ Rev 8:1 And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour. ”
  • The Seventh Seal: The Awful Silence (Revelation 8:1)
    • This is the link between the first and second series of 7 judgments. There are to be 3 series in all, each more severe than the one before.
    • The coming judgments are so terrible that all of heaven stands totally still and silent for half an hour at the thought of it.
