Sealing of Israel
Book of Revelation Chapter 7
Since chapter seven landed between the sixth and seventh Seal, I could not understand how or why it should be here. It seemed out of place. Where does it go? The Holy Spirit showed me it was to be placed after the seventh Trumpet sounds. Why? Because God told me to place it there. When the Seventh Trumpet blows, it will be the catching away for the Israelis and all of the saints who will make it through up to this period of time. This is why this seventh Chapter is to go there. This is how God showed me what I was to do with it.
Notice how chapter seven starts with “And after these things”. What are the things it is referring to? Let’s look at the closing verse prior to it in chapter 6 verse 17,
Rev. 6:17 “ For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand”?
Rev. 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.
This is where you are to place chapter 7. After the great day of His wrath. The word AFTER, is the key word here. This is the only Scripture in the Book of Revelation where God tells you to place a Scripture either before or after another. After the last Trumpet sounds, is where Chapter 7 is to be placed. Notice also how this chapter is numbered (7) God’s Number. Another way John is showing this mystery to us by using numbers,
All chapters are very important, but this one is a very special one. John hid it very well. Why? I believe he did it this way because no one was to know this mystery of when the Isralites will have their turn to be taken. (Raptured). Only to be revealed by the Holy Spirit and in His timing. The remaining Scriptures in chapter seven give you all the information one needs to know about who the 144,000 are and when they will be sealed. They will be with a multitude of people in heaven who will come through the great Tribulation as well.
Re. 7:2 “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, “
Rev. 7:3 “Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.”
Rev. 7:4 “And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed a hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.”
Rev. 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;”
Rev. 7:13 “…What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?”
Rev. 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.”
As you can tell this is when the Israelites will be sealed. They were watered with the Word for 1,260 days by the two witnesses. They were ready, and all of those who will come through these seven years. They will be raptured at the same time as the Two Witnesses, at the end of these seven years, not at the beginning.
Let’s go back now where we left off in the sixth Seal and continue into the seventh and final Seal.
