REVELATION 7: 4-8 > TODAYS KEY WORDS>TRIBES OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL
Todays verse is so very important ,I cannot split it up so all can see how these children of God are selected and sealed to be protected during the time of tribulation . These are to be chosen for the sole purpose of Evangelism . They are to preach the Word of God to all who will listen and even to all who will not listen . They are not to be touched by any evil , whatsoever . They will be sealed and protected at all times by God .
They are to be selected from the 12 Tribes of Israel in the Old Testament . 12,000 from each of the 12 tribes = 144,000 . Some compare the power of each of these 144,00o to the most gifted Evangelists of all time . It is like saying there will be 144,000 Billy Graham’s out there preaching the Gospel at all times and in all places worldwide . Now that is getting the Word out .
