SECTION OUTLINE SEVEN (REVELATION 7)
John witnesses the sealing of God's 144,000 witnesses, and he hears the
crying out or shouting of an unnumbered multitude of those who have
been saved during the great tribulation.
An intermission scene before opening the seventh seal. We have
seen six seals opened revealing of the events that would shortly
occur. The first 4 reveal what was to occur in the great tribulation
during the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in AD70.
The fifth seal reveals the question from those slain as to when the
Lord would avenge their death. The sixth seal reveals the answer to
them from the One on the throne and of the Lamb which would be
the punishment of their persecutors and accomplices.
I. THE SEALING OF GOD'S SERVANTS ON EARTH (7:1-8)
Before anything else occurs, God’s servants must be
sealed.
A. The sealers (7:1-3)
1. What John sees (7:1-2a)
4 messengers
4 creatures
4 winds
a. He sees four messengers holding back the four winds
of the earth & keeping them from blowing on the
earth, the sea or any tree (7:1).
Dan 7:2-3 the four winds of heaven (God’s
authority) strove upon the great sea out of the sea
(people) came 4 creatures (rulers)
Ezek 37:9 …come from the 4 winds, O breath
Rev 9:4 hurt not the grass ..any green tree
These are not heavenly messengers. These are those
who are trying to restrain the word of God
everywhere – Rom 1:18 YLT (holding down).
Is 61:3 for trees of righteousness
Matt 7:17-19 Jesus using trees to refer to good and
bad men
Their efforts are restrained by the messenger in
verse 2, preventing them from holding back the 4
winds, the spread of the gospel of Christ by His
2
messengers. These 4 winds stand on the four
corners of the earth, Rome’s worldwide influence
to stop its spread. But the gospel will be preached
in all the earth per
Rom 10:18 …went into all the earth.. & Col 1:23
Matt 24:14…in all the world..then the end comes
b. He sees another messenger carrying the seal of God
(7:2a).
This is a heavenly messenger for he has the seal of
God and who ascends from the east, where the sun
rises and gives light.
2. What John hears (7:2b-3): The fifth messenger instructs
the four not to harm the earth or sea until God's servants
have been sealed.
Eph 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard
the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in
whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with
that holy Spirit of promise, KJV
Gal 3:14 ..Gentiles might receive the promise of the
Spirit
Gal 3:16..the promise..thy seed which is Christ
Gal 3:27-29..heirs according to the promise
B. The sealed (7:4-8)
1. The total (7:4): One hundred forty-four thousand are
sealed.
2. The tribes (7:5-8): Twelve thousand from each of Israel's
twelve tribes are sealed. See tribes listed
Judah Num 1:3-15 Reuben ReubenDt33:1-29
Reuben Simeon Judah
Gad Judah Levi
Aser Issachar Benjamin
Napthali Zebulon Joseph
Manassas Joseph Manassah
Simeon Manassah Zebulon
Levi Benjamin Gad
Issachar Dan Dan
Zebulon Asher Napthali
Joseph Gad Asher
Benjamin Napthali Napthali
3
Dan not listed Levi not listed Simeon not listed
The same all twelve tribes are not always listed. One is
missing from each list. Each list simply represents all
even though one is always not mentioned.
The 12 thousand and 144 thousand represent
figurative, spiritual Israel, the Israel of God of the NT,
Christians
Rom 2:28-29..a Jew inwardly.
Col 2:10-12 circumcision without hands
Gal 6:16.. the Israel of God
Lk 22:29-39 .. judging the 12 tribes..in the kingdom
They were sealed when they obeyed the gospel.
2 Cor 1:21-22 God ..who hath sealed us
Eph 1:12-14 ..heard the truth..believed..sealed
II. THE LOUD EXCLAMATIONS OF GOD'S SERVANTS IN HEAVEN (7:9-

Mk 16:19.. into heaven and sat on the right hand of
4
Acts 2:33 .therefore being at the right hand of God
Col 3:1..Christ sitteth on the right hand of God
B. What is said about the messengers, elders, and the
4 living creatures
They stood and fell before the throne
Ps 103:19-22 19 Jehovah in the heavens Hath
established His throne, And His kingdom over all
hath ruled.20 Bless Jehovah, ye His messengers,
Mighty in power — doing His word, To hearken to
the voice of His Word.21 Bless Jehovah, all ye His
hosts, His ministers — doing His pleasure.22 Bless
Jehovah, all ye His works, In all places of His
dominion. Bless, O my soul, Jehovah! YLT
See Rev 4:10 for similar action by elders and the 4
C. What questions are posed to John by one of the elders?

The Revelation Chapter 7 Working Copy.docx

  • 1. 1 SECTION OUTLINE SEVEN (REVELATION 7) John witnesses the sealing of God's 144,000 witnesses, and he hears the crying out or shouting of an unnumbered multitude of those who have been saved during the great tribulation. An intermission scene before opening the seventh seal. We have seen six seals opened revealing of the events that would shortly occur. The first 4 reveal what was to occur in the great tribulation during the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in AD70. The fifth seal reveals the question from those slain as to when the Lord would avenge their death. The sixth seal reveals the answer to them from the One on the throne and of the Lamb which would be the punishment of their persecutors and accomplices. I. THE SEALING OF GOD'S SERVANTS ON EARTH (7:1-8) Before anything else occurs, God’s servants must be sealed. A. The sealers (7:1-3) 1. What John sees (7:1-2a) 4 messengers 4 creatures 4 winds a. He sees four messengers holding back the four winds of the earth & keeping them from blowing on the earth, the sea or any tree (7:1). Dan 7:2-3 the four winds of heaven (God’s authority) strove upon the great sea out of the sea (people) came 4 creatures (rulers) Ezek 37:9 …come from the 4 winds, O breath Rev 9:4 hurt not the grass ..any green tree These are not heavenly messengers. These are those who are trying to restrain the word of God everywhere – Rom 1:18 YLT (holding down). Is 61:3 for trees of righteousness Matt 7:17-19 Jesus using trees to refer to good and bad men Their efforts are restrained by the messenger in verse 2, preventing them from holding back the 4 winds, the spread of the gospel of Christ by His
  • 2. 2 messengers. These 4 winds stand on the four corners of the earth, Rome’s worldwide influence to stop its spread. But the gospel will be preached in all the earth per Rom 10:18 …went into all the earth.. & Col 1:23 Matt 24:14…in all the world..then the end comes b. He sees another messenger carrying the seal of God (7:2a). This is a heavenly messenger for he has the seal of God and who ascends from the east, where the sun rises and gives light. 2. What John hears (7:2b-3): The fifth messenger instructs the four not to harm the earth or sea until God's servants have been sealed. Eph 1:13 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, KJV Gal 3:14 ..Gentiles might receive the promise of the Spirit Gal 3:16..the promise..thy seed which is Christ Gal 3:27-29..heirs according to the promise B. The sealed (7:4-8) 1. The total (7:4): One hundred forty-four thousand are sealed. 2. The tribes (7:5-8): Twelve thousand from each of Israel's twelve tribes are sealed. See tribes listed Judah Num 1:3-15 Reuben ReubenDt33:1-29 Reuben Simeon Judah Gad Judah Levi Aser Issachar Benjamin Napthali Zebulon Joseph Manassas Joseph Manassah Simeon Manassah Zebulon Levi Benjamin Gad Issachar Dan Dan Zebulon Asher Napthali Joseph Gad Asher Benjamin Napthali Napthali
  • 3. 3 Dan not listed Levi not listed Simeon not listed The same all twelve tribes are not always listed. One is missing from each list. Each list simply represents all even though one is always not mentioned. The 12 thousand and 144 thousand represent figurative, spiritual Israel, the Israel of God of the NT, Christians Rom 2:28-29..a Jew inwardly. Col 2:10-12 circumcision without hands Gal 6:16.. the Israel of God Lk 22:29-39 .. judging the 12 tribes..in the kingdom They were sealed when they obeyed the gospel. 2 Cor 1:21-22 God ..who hath sealed us Eph 1:12-14 ..heard the truth..believed..sealed II.

  • 4. 4 Acts 2:33 .therefore being at the right hand of God Col 3:1..Christ sitteth on the right hand of God B. What is said about the messengers, elders, and the 4 living creatures They stood and fell before the throne Ps 103:19-22 19 Jehovah in the heavens Hath established His throne, And His kingdom over all hath ruled.20 Bless Jehovah, ye His messengers, Mighty in power — doing His word, To hearken to the voice of His Word.21 Bless Jehovah, all ye His hosts, His ministers — doing His pleasure.22 Bless Jehovah, all ye His works, In all places of His dominion.
