Yesterday I spoke about the 144,000 first fruits that will
be harvested into our Creator’s family when Yehshua returns next July.
saints reached a point in their lives here in the flesh where they chose to no longer eat of the bread of men.
They chose to let their Creator and His unleavened bread of life become their sole source of food to feed their hearts
and minds with.
Their eyes became single and they grew in oneness with their Elohiym and
eventually they reached a point where they were sealed into His kingdom.
They reached this
point because they became spiritual virgins to Him and they refused to continue to commit adultery with Him by eating the
bread of men that comes from satan.
They left their lives for His kingdom’s sake as
all must do if they are going to one day be in His family.
Most who are of this number are
still asleep in the grave at this time awaiting their resurrection.
I have spoken in other
segments how the 24 elders were already resurrected after Yehshua’s death.
will only be 153 of the 144,000 who will still be alive in the flesh when Yehshua returns.
yesterday’s video, I did not explain how the 12 tribes of Israel come into play in this number, nor did I discuss who
the great multitude is so I will add more to this subject today.
4 And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and
there were sealed a HUNDRED AND FORTY-FOUR THOUSAND of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
John goes on to list how there are 12,000 from each of the 12 tribes.
What is interesting is the tribe of Dan is missing in the numbering.
And the tribe
of Joseph has the two tribes that came from his sons Ephraim and Manasseh.
Ephraim is listed
as the tribe of Joseph and Manasseh replaced the tribe of Dan in the numbering.
also different about this is Manasseh was Joseph’s first born, yet Ephraim was given his name to bear.
And this was for a reason as well.
It is because of choices that would happen down
the line with their descendants.
When Jacob, who was given the name Israel, blessed Joseph’s
two boys, he deliberately was led to give Ephraim the right hand blessing that customarily would have been given to the first
Israel told his son Joseph that Ephraim would become greater in the last days.
When Israel blessed his other sons, he also told them what would befall them in the latter
I will expand on this in another video when I explain who the tribe of Dan became.
The 144,000 are descendants of these tribes yet scripture is clear that others could be engrafted
into Israel along the way so some of these could have become of this number as well.
main thing to glean from the 144,000 is they are those who became spiritual virgins and washed their robes in the blood of
And all of this points to a very precise and systematic plan that our Creator
is going through to build His family.
To help give us understanding, we merely need to look
at who Yehshua was sent to.
24 But He answered and said,
I AM NOT SENT FORTH EXCEPT INTO THE LOST SHEEP OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL.
great multitude is from “all” nations and races and languages, they are not just from the lost tribes of Israel.
The 144,000 are from these tribes and from those who were engrafted in with them along
Yehshua commissioned the tribes of Israel to take the good news of His Father’s
kingdom to the world but they did not.
They brought their perversions of His good news to
the world instead.
So the great multitude was not called.
seed for many who will become a part of this great multitude is being called at this time but sadly it is going to take a
time of great trouble to get them to seek His kingdom or to even listen to His offer.
this seed will have to wash in Yehshua’s blood just as the 144,000 had to if they are going to be delivered into the
1,000 year reign when they can grow to become a part of this multitude.
There is much confusion
on who the multitude is referring to in different beliefs that are out there.
that they are the gentiles who confess Yehshua’s name or confess a pagan version of it with their mouth who will be
raptured away or some other version of this when Yehshua returns.
Others think that this
group is speaking about the 144,000 in a different way.
Neither is true.
These prophesies were not recorded in a way that they can be figured out by man.
must come from our Creator.
After we are given the breakdown of the 12,000 from each of
the 12 tribes in Revelations chapter 7, we are told;
9 And with these (speaking of with the 12,000 from each of the
12 tribes of Israel that make up the 144,000) I saw a large group (great multitude) that
no man could count from “ALL NATIONS AND RACES AND PEOPLE AND LANGUAGES” standing
before the throne and before the Lamb CLOTHED WITH WHITE ROBES and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a great voice, saying, deliverance (or salvation) is unto our Elohiym
which sits upon the throne and unto the Lamb.
The book of revelations is
not written in chronological order.
It jumps around as does other prophesy.
And it is a book of prophesy that has to be revealed just as all prophesy must be revealed.
And prophesy is revealed in our Creator’s perfect timing to who He will reveal it to.
The Apostle John recorded these events as he was shown them and not as they would happen later in real time.
These verses do not say that this group will be in the first resurrection.
say that this group will be with those who are in the first resurrection but they do not say when they will be with them.
We are simply being told that there will be a great multitude who will also be given white
robes because they will also wash in Yehshua’s blood.
When will they be given these
This event is explained elsewhere and it will be at the great white throne of judgment.
John’s vision shifts to another scene in the next verse;
And all the angels stood around the throne, and the elders and the four beasts fell before the
throne on their faces and worshipped Elohiym,
truly the blessing and the honor and the wisdom and the gratitude and the majesty and the power and the might be to our Elohiym
forever and ever, truly.
Truly all praise and honor to Him indeed!
As you can see, there are other things going on in this vision that John is seeing.
was shown the 144,000, then he was shown this large group that was with them and then he is shown the angels and the elders
and the four beasts at the throne.
Then the attention goes back to those who would be given
One of the elders perceived that John was wondering who they were who were
clothed in white robes so he said;
13 And one of the elders
answered saying to me, what are these which are arrayed in white robes? And where did they come from?
14 And I said to him, master, you know. And he said to me, THESE
ARE THEY WHICH CAME OUT FROM GREAT AFFLICTION AND HAVE WASHED THEIR ROBES, AND MADE THEM WHITE IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB.
Is he talking about the 144,000 who will be given white robes?
is he talking about the great multitude who will also be given white robes at the great white throne of judgment?
Both groups will have to have washed in Yehshua’s blood.
The 144,000 certainly
washed their robes in His blood during a time of great affliction.
They had to do it with
satan and his crew on the loose and they had to do it not knowing the day of Yehshua’s return and a host of other obstacles.
And those who will be delivered through the coming time of Jacob’s trouble will need
to wash their robes in His blood.
And they will certainly have to go through great affliction
And these will certainly be able to become part of the great multitude but they
are not the entire great multitude.
And there is also a third group that can become a part
of the great multitude who were not of the 144,000, nor of those who will be delivered through the coming time of trouble.
The answer lies in understanding the whole prophetic timeline and when the latter harvest
will be harvested.
Those who will be delivered through the coming time of Jacob’s
trouble who are not of the 144,000 will not be given their eternal white robes immediately following this time of trouble.
They will still be flesh.
People want to read into scriptures
things based on their own reasoning or what they have been taught or what they want to believe is true.
Verse 13 shows that John wanted to know who it was that had the white robes, but it does not say that he was referring
to the great multitude.
He was also shown the 144,000 who were with the multitude.
What he was shown was both groups or the complete family of Elohiym after the great white throne clothed in white
Will it be a great multitude that turns to Him in the coming time of affliction?
Or will it be a remnant of Israel and those from other nations and races who turn to their
Creator during this time of trouble?
I do know that those who will be delivered through
the coming time of trouble will be the seed of many who will be in the great multitude that is the latter
But there will also be many from the 1st 6,000 years who will be resurrected at
the Great White Throne who will be able to become part of this multitude.
And these certainly
will not have gone through the time of Jacob’s trouble because they will have either died in it or died in the nearly
6,000 years before it started.
The seed for many of this multitude will come through the
coming time of tribulation but they are not the multitude in and of themselves.
is all of the latter harvest.
And all will have to have washed in Yehshua’s blood
to be in any of the harvests.
And all who will be in Elohiym’s family not only will
have washed in His Son’s blood, but they will also have had to have gone through great tribulation either way because
it is part of the process to try us with fire and to test us and prove us.
It is just that
there are different phases and the time of affliction is certainly different for each phase.
those who will be humbled during the time of Jacob’s trouble, it is for a short season compared to the 144,000 who had
to overcome a completely different set of circumstances.
And once they come through this
time, it is going to be incredible for them with evil purged out and satan bound and Yehshua and the 144,000 here ruling and
everyone knowing their Elohiym.
The reason why so many have a hard time understanding who
the multitude is, is because they want to read the book of Revelations in a sequential telling of events and it does not record
events this way.
The groups that argue that this group is the same group as the 144,000
say that no one could count a 144,000 if they stood before them.
And since they understand
that the 144,000 were built through the 6,000 years of man and had to overcome great affliction heaped on them by the world
and satan, and since they understand that the 144,000 are the first fruits, they make this assumption.
The problem for them is, verse 9 plainly says;
9 And “with” these things (speaking of the 144,000) I saw a large group who no man could count FROM ALL
NATIONS AND RACES AND PEOPLE AND LANGUAGES standing before the throne and before the Lamb…
So clearly there are two different groups because it is referring to two different harvests that will both be together
in the same family.
It is just a matter of understanding the timing of when each group is
given their eternal robes.
I want to expand on something today because more understanding
keeps being given.
Even if the elder was still talking to John about the great multitude
when he went back to explain to him who it was that he saw, both scenarios would be true anyway because they will have wash
in the blood as well.
It is just that they will not be given their eternal robes until they
are sealed and resurrected or born again into Elohiym’s kingdom.
And it is clear that
there will be those who will be in the multitude that were neither part of the 144,000, nor part of those who will be delivered
in the coming time of trouble because they were died or were dead before this time.
there will be those who are born in the millennium that can also become part of the multitude that no man can number.
All that anyone needs to worry about though is becoming a chaste virgin to their Elohiym and to His Son and washing
in His Son’s blood.
The rest will take care of itself.
