7,000 God's Very Elect  vs. 144,000 God's Elect and The Nations  
                                                                                                       God Elect 7000 vs. 144,000 and The Nations       God Elect 7000 vs. 144,000 and The Nations       God Elect 7000 vs. 144,000 and The Nations

Isaiah 45:3 And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the Lord, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.

4 For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me.

5 I am the Lord, and there is none else, there is no God beside me: I girded thee, though thou hast not known me:
 
Once the 5th trumpet sounds the four winds will be shut, all that know God's word will be sealed with God's word in their forehead, there will be many that will believe the truth, once the 7,000 are delivered up.
 
I believe the 7,000 (from all races) that know God's Plan and have the seal of God's word in their forehead will be with the two witnesses. If you read (Zechariah 4) the 144,000 are not with the two witnesses.
 
Satan cannot touch God's Elect = Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them (Satan and his angels) that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
 
10 Virgins = The Oil Is God's Word = 5 Virgins studied God's Word and 5 Virgins started listen to man (Matthew 25)
 
Matthew 22 tells us of the parable of those ''called'' to the wedding.
 
Matthew 22:14 For many are called, but few are chosen.
 
5 Virgins Knows God's Word = The Seal of God In Your Forehead is simply, to know the truth of God's Word, knowing God's full truth and doing His work . The 7,000 were chosen before this earth age.
 
7,000 = teaches God's word, but it's God that does the sealing of the 144,000.
 
We know there will be more than 7,000 (from all races) the number seven means: spiritual completion, perfection, perfect spiritual order carried out with all spiritual power and significance. both spirit and order. perfection of spiritual truth, as seen by multiple of 7, but by the perfection of divine order.

Seven represents, The Bible numeric, this is the number of spiritual perfection.
 
Revelation 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
 
Notice = 7,000  = All races = the nations will be Kings and priests of their own people.
 
Galatians 3:28 There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.
 
29 And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.
 
Galatians 4:6 And because ye are sons, God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
 
7 Wherefore thou art no more a servant, but a son; and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ.
 
Ephesians 3:6 That the Gentiles should be fellow heirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
 
Isaiah 62:1 For Zion's sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem's sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burneth.
 
2 And the Gentiles shall see thy righteousness, and all kings thy glory: and thou shalt be called by a new name, which the mouth of the Lord shall name.
 
3 Thou shalt also be a crown of glory in the hand of the Lord, and a royal diadem in the hand of thy God.
 
God's Elect (All Races) = The new name in Israel 62:2 = Hidden manna = truth = This is the ''white stone'' which is the hidden manna, or hidden truth that only the elect can learn.
 
Revelation 2:17 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.  (Revelation 7:9)
 
1 Peter 2:4 To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.
 
Isaiah 45:4 For Jacob my servant's sake, and Israel mine elect, I have even called thee by thy name: I have surnamed thee, though thou hast not known me. (Ezekiel 44) (Revelation 7)
 
Malachi 1:2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,
 
Malachi 1:6 A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the LORD of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?
 
Go back and read chapters Zechariah 4 and 6
 
Zechariah 4:4 So I answered and spake to the angel that talked with me, saying, What are these, my lord?

5 Then the angel that talked with me answered and said unto me, Knowest thou not what these be? And I said, No, my lord.

6 Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.
 
The word ''Zerubbabel'' means to born in confusion ''to flow smoothly out of Babel'', It means ''to come out of Babel'', or out of Babylon (confusion) in this present day to learn the full truth.
 
The 7000 will bring the 144,000 and in time the whole world, out of Babel when God speak through His very elect.
 
Matthew 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
 
Mark 13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten: and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.
 
10 And the gospel must first be published among all nations.
 
11  But when they shall lead you, and deliver you up, take no thought beforehand what ye shall speak, neither do ye premeditate: but whatsoever shall be given you in that hour, that speak ye: for it is not ye that speak, but the Holy Spirit.
 
Amos 9:11 In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:
  • On the Lord's Day
12 That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the Lord that doeth this.
  • Esau = Edom = Russia
  • Who does this?
  • God
  • Those of Russia that study God's Word  = Possess = To have the legal title to; to have a just right to; to be master of; to own; to have; as, to possess property, an estate, a book.
  • Esau = from Isaac seed
  • Heathen = Gentiles Nations

  • Revelation 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;

  • Revelation 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
The beauty of this whole thing and it's important to translate the full meaning into English is the fact that the oil from these lamps flows not with the help of man, But with the spirit of God.
 
The truth is fed into your mind, not by the help of man, but the spirit of God.
 
We know this is the season. He called you and is the reason we cannot impose this message upon someone who does not want to accept it.
 
5 virgins represents those that didn't study God's Word. They were caught up into the world's traditions and false teachings.
 
144,000 = Revelation 14:3 And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth.
 
Notice = the 144,00 are redeemed from earth = Revelation 14 = The Vision is in heaven = Christ has returned
 
144,000 will be seal with the Seal of God in their forehead, but they don't believe the truth until the 7,000 are delivered up.

John 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
 
Babel = confusion
 
Those that don't study God's Word = When Christ return they're spiritually ''impregnated'' in their minds = Spiritually dead to God's Word = they didn't study God's Word = They believe Satan is God, these are deceived by Satan lies.
 
Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them (Satan and his angels) that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.
 
Mark 13:9 But take heed to yourselves: for they shall deliver you up to councils; and in the synagogues ye shall be beaten (mocked): and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them.

14 Thus saith the Lord against all mine evil neighbours, that touch the inheritance which I have caused my people Israel to inherit; Behold, I will pluck them out of their land, and pluck out the house of Judah from among them.

15 And it shall come to pass, after that I have plucked them out I will return, and have compassion on them, and will bring them again, every man to his heritage, and every man to his land.

16 And it shall come to pass, if they will diligently learn the ways of my people, to swear by my name, The Lord liveth; as they taught my people to swear by Baal; then shall they be built in the midst of my people.

17 But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the Lord.
 
Jeremiah 15:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord, If thou return, then will I bring thee again, and thou shalt stand before me: and if thou take forth the precious from the vile, thou shalt be as my mouth: let them return unto thee; but return not thou unto them.

20 And I will make thee unto this people a fenced brasen wall: and they shall fight against thee, but they shall not prevail against thee: for I am with thee to save thee and to deliver thee, saith the Lord.

21 And I will deliver thee out of the hand of the wicked, and I will redeem thee out of the hand of the terrible.
 
Revelation 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.
 
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,
  • Notice that it is God that allows this hurt.
  • Also, the angel is talking loudly not softly. Having the seal of the living God
3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
  • To help place that name in their foreheads, Simply by removing the deception and placing the truth within them.
  • Sea = People
  • The Angel is saying, Stop! Hold Everything! Go No Further
  • Until the elect has sealed The 144,000 With The Truth

  • They shall stand before them to minister unto them.
  • Romans 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.

12 Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore have I lifted up mine hand against them, saith the Lord GOD, and they shall bear their iniquity.
  • Caused = were to the house of Israel for a stumbling block of iniquity.
13 And they shall not come near unto me, to do the office of a priest unto me, nor to come near to any of my holy things, in the most holy place: but they shall bear their shame, and their abominations which they have committed.
  • They shall not come near unto Me = This is to be the punishment to 144,000.
14 But I will make them keepers of the charge of the house, for all the service thereof, and for all that shall be done therein.
  • The 144,000, cannot minister unto the Lord.
Ezekiel 6:1 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, set thy face toward the mountains of Israel, and prophesy against them,

3 And say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God; Thus saith the Lord God to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys; Behold, I, even I, will bring a sword upon you, and I will destroy your high places.
 
4 And your altars shall be desolate, and your images shall be broken: and I will cast down your slain men before your idols.
  • God not happy with Israel and the false teacher
  • Hosea 3:4 For the children of Israel shall abide many days without a king, and without a prince, and without a sacrifice, and without an image, and without an ephod, and without teraphim:
    5 Afterward shall the children of Israel return, and seek the Lord their God, and David their king; and shall fear the Lord and his goodness in the latter days.
  • Hosea 4:15 Though thou, Israel, play the harlot, yet let not Judah offend; and come not ye unto Gilgal, neither go ye up to Beth�aven, nor swear, The Lord liveth.
    16 For Israel slideth back as a backsliding heifer: now the Lord will feed them as a lamb in a large place.
    17 Ephraim is joined to idols: let him alone.
  • Hosea 5:3I know Ephraim, and Israel is not hid from me: for now, O Ephraim, thou committest whoredom, and Israel is defiled.
  • Hosea 5:9 Ephraim shall be desolate in the day of rebuke: among the tribes of Israel have I made known that which shall surely be.
    10 The princes of Judah were like them that remove the bound: therefore I will pour out my wrath upon them like water.
    11 Ephraim is oppressed and broken in judgment, because he willingly walked after the commandment.
    12 Therefore will I be unto Ephraim as a moth, and to the house of Judah as rottenness.
    13 When Ephraim saw his sickness, and Judah saw his wound, then went Ephraim to the Assyrian, and sent to king Jareb: yet could he not heal you, nor cure you of your wound.
  • Hosea 8:2 Israel shall cry unto me, My God, we know thee.
    3 Israel hath cast off the thing that is good: the enemy shall pursue him.
    4 They have set up kings, but not by me: they have made princes, and I knew it not: of their silver and their gold have they made them idols, that they may be cut off.
    5 Thy calf, O Samaria, hath cast thee off; mine anger is kindled against them: how long will it be ere they attain to innocency?

5 And I will lay the dead carcases of the children of Israel before their idols; and I will scatter your bones round about your altars.

6 In all your dwelling places the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate; that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, and your idols may be broken and cease, and your images may be cut down, and your works may be abolished.
  • Your cities shall be laid waste, the gates are left wide open
  • Just like tomorrows newspaper
7 And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and ye shall know that I am the Lord.
 
7,000 = remnant according to the election of grace
 
Romans 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
 
5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
 
In the last days the elect are going to help God directly in His work. What a glorious time is ahead. His goodness will let the elect (seven thousand that stood against Satan without wavering), being the first fruits, that would suffer for Him in the near future and bring this age into "the millennium" which is the Lord's day. (Roman 11) (Ephesians 1)
 
The 7,000 will be with the two witnesses
 
The 7,000 remnants = all races, Those that love the Lord  have nothing to wrong about, God loves those that try to do what's right and keep His commandments. 
 
Revelation 7:9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations (people), and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
 
Revelation 7:14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
 
1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.

10 But God hath revealed them unto us by his Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
 
Mark 13:24 But in those days, after that (Satan's) tribulation, the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light,
 
Mark 13:26 And then shall they see the Son of man coming in the clouds with great power and glory.
 
7th trumpet = Mark 13:27 And then shall he send his angels, and shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from the uttermost part of the earth to the uttermost part of heaven.
 
God's pours out His wrath = 7th vial on the wicked
 
Revelation 15:2 And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that had gotten the victory over the beast (Satan), and over his image (image-worship false christ), and over his mark (your works), and over the number of his name (666), stand on the sea of glass, having the harps of God.
 
3 And they sing the song of Moses the servant of God, and the song of the Lamb, saying, Great and marvellous are thy works, Lord God Almighty; just and true are thy ways, thou King of saints.
 
4 Who shall not fear thee, O Lord, and glorify thy name? for thou only art holy: for all nations shall come and worship before thee; for thy judgments are made manifest.
 
Why will all nations worship before thee? Because Christ has return and gathered His elect and you are with Christ.
 
Matthew 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken:
 
30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
  • 7th trump - After Satan tribulation
31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.
 
Revelation 1:6 And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
 
7 Behold, he cometh with clouds; and every eye shall see him, and they also which pierced him: and all kindreds of the earth shall wail because of him. Even so, Amen.
 
Revelation 20:4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
 
5 But the rest of the dead (spiritual dead to God's word) lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
 
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death (Satan is death) hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
 
Ezekiel 44:15 But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, they shall come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to offer unto me the fat and the blood, saith the Lord GOD:
  • Good reading Romans 11 and Romans 8
  • Zadok: In Hebrew means sons of the just
  • It is repeated that the son of Zadok, the 7,000 shall minister unto the Lord.
  • Revelation 20:6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years
Isaiah 1:8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
  • This daughter is symbolic of the remnant.
  • He will always protect her.
9 Except the LORD of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant, we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
 
Ezekiel 6:8 Yet will I leave a remnant, that ye may have some that shall escape the sword among the nations, when ye shall be scattered through the countries.
  • I will leave a remnant that shall escape = those that teach God's Word
  • Romans 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.
    5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.
Romans 11:1 I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin.

2 God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elijah? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying,

3 Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life.

4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.

5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded

8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

9 And David saith, Let their table be made a snare, and a trap, and a stumbling block, and a recompence unto them:

10 Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back alway.

11 I say then, Have they stumbled that they should fall? God forbid: but rather through their fall salvation is come unto the Gentiles, for to provoke them to jealousy.

12 Now if the fall of them be the riches of the world, and the diminishing of them the riches of the Gentiles; how much more their fulness?

13 For I speak to you Gentiles, inasmuch as I am the apostle of the Gentiles, I magnify mine office:

14 If by any means I may provoke to emulation them which are my flesh, and might save some of them.

15 For if the casting away of them be the reconciling of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?

16 For if the firstfruit be holy, the lump is also holy: and if the root be holy, so are the branches.

17 And if some of the branches be broken off, and thou, being a wild olive tree, wert graffed in among them, and with them partakest of the root and fatness of the olive tree;

18 Boast not against the branches. But if thou boast, thou bearest not the root, but the root thee.

19 Thou wilt say then, The branches were broken off, that I might be graffed in.
 
20 Well; because of unbelief they were broken off, and thou standest by faith. Be not high minded, but fear:

21 For if God spared not the natural branches, take heed lest he also spare not thee.

22 Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.

23 And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.

24 For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be graffed into their own olive tree?
 
25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.
 
26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:

27 For this is my covenant unto them, when I shall take away their sins.

28 As concerning the gospel, they are enemies for your sakes: but as touching the election, they are beloved for the fathers' sakes.

29 For the gifts and calling of God are without repentance.

30 For as ye in times past have not believed God, yet have now obtained mercy through their unbelief:

31 Even so have these also now not believed, that through your mercy they also may obtain mercy.

32 For God hath concluded them all in unbelief, that he might have mercy upon all.

33 O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out!

34 For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?

35 Or who hath first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again?

36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
 
Gentiles that have the Seal of God in their forehead will be part of the elect 7,000 = they will be kings over their own people
 
Revelation 7:13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
  • It is evident here that there will be more than the 144,000 brought through.
  • The Gentiles that have the seal of God in their forehead = they know God's Words, God's Plan
  • They will be part of 7,000 that will be deliver up
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
  • It is during the time of the great tribulation when the 144,000 are being gathered and others.
  • Notice it say they washed their own robes.
  • Not only, are you as the first fruits going to lead the 144,000
  • But the very voice, which is given to you by God
  • In Mark 13:11, is going to direct multitudes.
  • When He says you are priests and that you will teach to the world it will not just be teaching, as it were, to deaf ears, But it will be successful.
  • And multitudes,. verse 9 all nations that love the Lord, the overcomers
  • Verse 9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
  • The word ''after this'' are important to note.
  • He sees this vision after the sealing of the 144,000.
  • Evidently when the 7,000 are delivered up
  • Gentiles will be part of 7,000 that will be deliver up
  • There will also be many Gentiles converted before the millennium.
  • Their task will be to set up their own nations (all races) throughout the millennium.
  • There will be a place for the multitudes, with the Lord. Parts of the multitude are their people.
  • Who wore the white robes and were before the throne?
  • In Revelation 6:11 And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellow servants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled. 
  • Revelation 11 tells us, Satan will kill the two witnesses and three and one half days, before Christ's return here on earth.
  • Remember, the word ''nations'' means ''ethnos'', which is various ethic groups.
  • There will be kingdoms of them outside the 1500 miles and they will live in the light of it.
  • Those that come by salvation, that are saved out of the races after the second death
  • They will live under their own perfect kings, and their own realms
Elect = NT:1586 make choice, choose (out), chosen. NT:1588 chosen, elect.
 
Elect = God's Elect = The elect are made up of a remnant of people that God has set aside to do His work at the end of this earth age.
 
There has always been a remnant to do God's work. Sometimes a group and sometimes just one or two.
 
The elect are going to help God directly in His work. What a glorious time is ahead. His goodness will let the elect (seven thousand that stood against Satan without wavering), being the first fruits, that would suffer for Him in the near future and bring this age into the millennium, which is the Lord's day.
 
They will prove their right of being God's elect by standing against Satan again, being delivered up and being a witness for Christ's sake.
 
Spiritual dead means you don't know God's word, Without the Lord you are dead, they are dead to the truth and they do not have an opportunity to have eternal life until, After the teaching, or the end of the millennium. dry bones in (Ezekiel 37) Luke 20:38 For He is not a God of the dead, but of the living: for all live unto him.
 
Nations means ''ethnos'', which is various ethic groups.
 
The 144,000 = They are Spiritual Dead = when Israel went astray = until the 7,000 are delivered up
 
The 7000 will bring the 144,000 and in time the whole world, out of Babel.
 
4th trumpet 1/3 of the Christians are spiritually dead to GOD'S WORD = It's to make a choice, choose to follow God or Satan
 
Ezekiel 11:13 And it came to pass, when I prophesied, that Pelatiah the son of Benaiah died. Then fell I down upon my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah Lord God! wilt thou make a full end of the remnant of Israel?
  • Lord God! wilt thou make a full end of the remnant of Israel?
14 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

15 Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the house of Israel wholly, are they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Get you far from the Lord: unto us is this land given in possession.

16 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord God; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.

17 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord God; I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.
 
18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.

19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:

20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.
 
Revelation 18:23 And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no more at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived.

24 And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth.
 
God will gather His Elect at the 7th trumpet
 
Isaiah 42:1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
 
Daniel 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
 
2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
 
Note the three subjects thus connected with "the time of Death of the flesh"
 
(1). Sleep indicates death of the flesh body: Notice he said, "many sleep of dust of the earth" means, these have already died and they're already with God.
 
(2.) Sleep indicates everlasting life = At The 7th Trumpet All Will Be Changed Into Their Own Spiritual Body: Notice "Some to everlasting life", means, This happens at the last trumpet, after Satan's tribulation, some waited on the Lord, these did not worship Satan...These are the overcomers singing the song of Moses, they are resurrected to Immortality (deathlessness) soul, alive with Christ. Those that worshipped Satan will keep their mortal soul, which means liable to die.
 
3.) Spiritual Dead Notice "Some to shame", these followed or worshipped Satan and they are alive at the last trumpet, means these are spiritual dead to God's word, and will keep their mortal soul (liable to die) until after the millennium.
 
Some to shame =  The 7,000 will seal the 144,000 with God's Truth, BUT they don't believe it's the truth, until the 7,000 are deliver up and God speaks through them
 
Notice God gave Israel a bill of divorce
 
Jeremiah 3:8 And I saw, when for all the causes whereby backsliding Israel committed adultery I had put her away, and given her a bill of divorce; yet her treacherous sister Judah feared not, but went and played the harlot also.
 
2 Corinthians 11:1 Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.

2 For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

3 But I fear, lest by any means,
as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
 
Revelation 14 = The Vision is in heaven; for the singers stand before the Throne, and they are with the Lamb.
 
He is not yet descended to the Earth.
 
Revelation 14:4 These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb.
 
The elect are called out of the body of Israel = Levities priests
 
Ten Virgins with the oil of God's Word.. Some listen to man and some studied God's Word
 
5 virgins will wait on the Lord until their husband comes and arrives.
 
Revelation 19:7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready.
 
5  virgins that listen to men they have  become ''impregnated'' in their minds.

Mark 13:17 But woe to them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days!

  • Woe to them that are with child.
  • If Christ comes back and find you chasing another husband meaning Satan, you did not wait on Christ, you are in bed with Satan.
  • A woman who is found to be with child when her husband returns from a long trip has been with another husband.
Mark 13:33 Take ye heed, watch and pray: for ye know not when the time is.

34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.

35 Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cockcrowing, or in the morning:

36 Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.


37 And what I say unto you I say unto all, Watch.
 
And take another husband, the false christ = They Believe Satan is God = These have not studied God's Word
 
With child when the true Christ does return..spiritually with child.. they played the harlot.
 
Malachi 1:1 The burden of the word of the LORD to Israel by Malachi.
 
2 I have loved you, saith the LORD. Yet ye say, Wherein hast thou loved us? Was not Esau Jacob's brother? saith the LORD: yet I loved Jacob,
 
3 And I hated Esau, and laid his mountains and his heritage waste for the dragons of the wilderness.
 
4 Whereas Edom saith, We are impoverished, but we will return and build the desolate places; thus saith the LORD of hosts, They shall build, but I will throw down; and they shall call them, The border of wickedness, and, The people against whom the LORD hath indignation for ever.
  • Edom's = the nation Russia = Russia's symbol = the bear = Russia's flag = red
  • Edom = OT:123 Hebrew word Edom from OT:122; red, Edom, the elder twin-brother of Jacob; hence the region (Idumaea) occupied by him. Edomites, Idumea.
  • 7,000 = remnant according to the election of grace
  • Elect = NT:1586 make choice, choose (out), chosen. NT:1588 select; by implication, favorite: chosen, elect.
5 Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace.

6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work.

 7 What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded

8 (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

NT:652 a delegate; specially, an ambassador of the Gospel; officially a commissioner of Christ ["apostle"] (with miraculous powers)  NT:649 set apart, (by implication) to send out (properly, on a mission) literally or figuratively: put in, send (away, forth, out), set [at liberty].
 
Luke 6:13 And when it was day, he called unto him his disciples: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named apostles

3 To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
  • Forty Days, the only reference to the period between the Resurrection.
  • Forty days = during forty days = Christ shewed himself to Apostles = teaching them
  • The only reference to the period between the Resurrection and the Ascension
  • Christ shewed himself alive = Presented "Himself"
  • Christ speaking of the things concerning to the kingdom of God

4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.

5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days hence.

6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
  • Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
  • Restore again = establish or setup
7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power.
  • It is not for you to know the times or the seasons
  • Promise given
  • Power = authority
8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
  • Ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Spirit is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto Me
John 1:7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

Isaiah 43:10 Ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, and my servant whom I have chosen: that ye may know and believe me, and understand that I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me.

11 I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour.

12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the Lord, that I am God.

Daniel 3:12 There are certain Jews whom thou hast set over the affairs of the province of Babylon, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego; these men, O king, have not regarded thee: they serve not thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.
 
Revelation 9:4 And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

24 And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer; and while they are yet speaking, I will hear.

25 The wolf and the lamb shall feed together, and the lion shall eat straw like the bullock: and dust shall be the serpent's meat. They shall not hurt nor destroy in all my holy mountain, saith the Lord.

25 Likewise also the good works of some are manifest beforehand; and they that are otherwise can not be hid.

Zechariah 4:1 And the angel that talked with me came again, and waked me, as a man that is wakened out of his sleep,

2 And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold a candlestick all of gold, with a bowl upon the top of it, and his seven lamps thereon, and seven pipes to the seven lamps, which are upon the top thereof:
  • The seven lamps are symbolic of the seven thousand mentioned in Roman 11
  • Roman 11:4 But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal.

Zechariah 4:10 For who hath despised the day of small things? for they shall rejoice, and shall see the plummet in the hand of Zerubbabel with those seven; they are the eyes of the LORD, which run to and fro through the whole earth.
  • A ''plummet'' is a tin stone
  • It's a plumb bob weighting heavily on the end of a string, The weight will keep the string straight with no varying from the right to the left.
  • You can see the 7000, that pick up the plummet and bring the people out of confusion.
  • They, the 7000, are the eye of God
  • There will be more than seven thousand = 7000 means Spiritual completion
  • Likewise, they shall neither turn right or left but go straight, following the truth of God's plan.
  • Verse 3 And two olive trees by it, one upon the right side of the bowl, and the other upon the left side thereof.
11 Then answered I, and said unto him, What are these two olive trees upon the right side of the candlestick and upon the left side thereof?
  • Who are the two people standing on the right side of the candlestick and the left side thereof?
  • No one knows.
  • I would hope that anyone would be blessed to be one of these.
  • Could it be Elijah, Moses, Enoch or someone in the flesh?
  • Verse 2-3 - These two witnesses will be on each side of the elect, leading and guiding the elect.
 12 And I answered again, and said unto him, What be these two olive branches which through the two golden pipes empty the golden oil out of themselves?

11 For what man knoweth the things of a man, save the spirit of man which is in him? even so the things of God knoweth no man, but the Spirit of God.
 
John 10:7 Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep.
