Who are the 144,000?

Revelation 7:4 “And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel”

 

 

The 144k are Jews during the tribulation who did not accept Jesus as their savior prior to the tribulation, they are thought to have once been Orthodox Jews that converted during the tribulation by accepting the signs of the tribulation as the truth about Christ.

 

The Jews in the tribulation experienced the first six seal judgments, which they recognized as the plagues of Egypt and the prophesies. If they had believed on Christ before this, they would have avoided the tribulation all together (Rev. 3:10).

 

 

These Jews become the evangelist of the time and minister to all those in the tribulation.

Revelation 7:5–8 “Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Zebulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand”

The 144k are gathered in increments of twelve thousand Jews, chosen out of each of the twelve tribes of Israel.

Of the twelve tribes depicted, Ephriam the son of Joseph (Genesis 41:50-52) and Dan, the son of Jacob (Genesis 35:23-25; Exodus 1:1-6) are not numbered among the twelve tribes of Israel.

They lost their place because of idolatry. The final twelve tribes include Manasses, but not Dan, Levi and Jospeh who was restored after the sin of Dan (Rev. 7:5-8). The Anti-Christ is thought to come out of the tribe of Dan.
