Revelation 7:1 After these things I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, on the sea, or on any tree.
2 Then 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 granted to harm the earth and the sea,
3 saying, “Do not harm the earth, the sea, or the trees till we have sealed the servants of our God on their foreheads.”
4 And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed:
Now, some mock the bible about the four corners thing. Its a figure of speach folks. The Marines still use this saying. These are sealed by God and they are literally Jews. God supernaturally seals & protects them. They are 144000 evangelists for God. They are evenly split between the 12 tribes of Israel. Notice who isnt listed, the tribe of Dan. They were caught up in idol worship, maybe thats the reason, but dont know. Whats cool is, We the church, now, are sealed with the Holy Spirit. What can touch us or harm us? We belong to Jesus! Whatever God allows to happen will never destroy us. What can man do to you as a sealed believer? The most that can happen is our physical bodies are taken away. Then we go to be in the LORDs presence with our glorified one. Thank You LORD for sealing us right now! We have life after life!
