Earth’s Final Evangelists-The 144,000

The subject of the 144,000 has been pushed around by various theologians church groups, and many are the thoughts as to who they are. In this presentation (Earth’s Final Evangelists), the true biblical position is introduced. When the Bible is “rightly” interpreted, it will sit in harmony with all other parts of Scripture, so as to not create conflict with any other relevant truth. For example, those who hold that the 144,000 is a symbolic number run in problems when reading the great multitude which is without number (Rev. 7: 9).

The Bible is written in types and antitypes, and when we can identify the 120 disciples on the day of Pentecost, a numbered company, upon whom fell the “former rain” in power, and who subsequently gathered in a great “innumerable” crowd of converts, we can see in the antitype, that the 144,000 ( a numbered company), they will also go forth and gather a “great innumerable multitude” of converts, in the pouring out of God’s Holy Spirit in “latter rain” power.

    The 144,000 are not a type or anti-type. Revelation 7:4 states the 144,000 come “from all the tribes of the children of Israel.” Clearly these will be JEWISH people from the 12 tribes of Israel; 12,000 from each tribe mentioned by name, except Dan whom some believe was replaced by Manasseh. Some think Dan was left out because he was the first to be involved in idolatry, but all 12 tribes became idolaters. before repenting. In the original scroll, John, who penned Revelation, listed Dan and not Manasseh. It is thought a scribe replaced Dan with MANasseh by accident. Deut 6 admonishes us to teach the word of God to our children; hence, it can’t be as complicated as some would have us believe. Abraham is not a type, The children of Israel, are not a type, The Christ is not a type, the followers of the Lord Jesus. then & now are not a type. Salvation is of the Jews. John 4:22. There are enough false prophets and deceivers of the truth in the world today. Please do not put your own slant on what the Word of God clearly teaches. In the end, we will have to answer why we chose to do what was right in our own eyes instead of going with “Thus saith the LORD.

    1. You should be aware that the 12-tribes are not called “Jews,” but Israelites, instead. The “Jews” are only descendants from Judah, Benhamin, and the Levites–the members of the two-Tribe (southern) Kingdom. Though you do not see Abraham as a “type,” yet the Bible says differently.

      Please try to appreciate this verse, “Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples [types]: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.” (1 Cor. 10: 11).

      Thanks for sharing.
