  • THIS PRESENTATION IS BROUGHT TO YOU
  • 00:00:02.110 --> 00:00:03.270
  • BY THE FRIENDS OF THE AMAZING FACTS MINISTRY.
  • 00:00:03.280 --> 00:00:06.210
  • EACH BRANCH OF THE US ARMED SERVICES
  • 00:00:10.120 --> 00:00:12.290
  • HAS ONE OR MORE ELITE TEAMS OF COMMANDOS.
  • 00:00:13.000 --> 00:00:16.190
  • THEY FIGHT USING SOPHISTICATED GUERRILLA WARFARE TACTICS.
  • 00:00:16.200 --> 00:00:21.010
  • TO SERVE IN ONE OF THESE SELECT UNITS,
  • 00:00:21.020 --> 00:00:23.020
  • A SOLDIER MUST BE HIGHLY DISCIPLINED,
  • 00:00:23.030 --> 00:00:25.190
  • AND THEY PASS THROUGH INCREDIBLY DIFFICULT PHYSICAL
  • 00:00:25.200 --> 00:00:28.160
  • AND MENTAL TRAINING.
  • 00:00:28.170 --> 00:00:30.200
  • EVEN A SMALL TEAM OF THESE COMMANDOS,
  • 00:00:30.210 --> 00:00:32.290
  • BECAUSE OF THEIR INTENSE TRAINING,
  • 00:00:33.000 --> 00:00:34.180
  • CAN ACHIEVE GREAT VICTORIES IN A SHORT TIME.
  • 00:00:34.190 --> 00:00:37.240
  • DURING THE GULF WAR, A TEAM OF US NAVY SEALS
  • 00:00:37.250 --> 00:00:41.220
  • CREATED A CONVINCING DIVERSION
  • 00:00:41.230 --> 00:00:43.220
  • BY STORMING THE BEACHES OF KUWAIT.
  • 00:00:43.230 --> 00:00:46.050
  • AND THEY CREATED SUCH HAVOC THAT THE IRAQI GENERALS
  • 00:00:46.060 --> 00:00:49.060
  • WERE COMPLETELY FOOLED INTO THINKING THE US-LED ATTACK
  • 00:00:49.070 --> 00:00:52.130
  • WAS COMING FROM THE SEA.
  • 00:00:52.140 --> 00:00:54.290
  • WITHIN A COUPLE OF DAYS, THE WHOLE WAR WAS OVER.
  • 00:00:55.000 --> 00:00:58.010
  • AND IT ALL STARTED WITH LESS THAN 20 SOLDIERS.
  • 00:00:58.020 --> 00:01:01.150
  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION TELLS ABOUT
  • 00:01:01.160 --> 00:01:03.170
  • ANOTHER SPECIAL FORCES UNIT,
  • 00:01:03.180 --> 00:01:05.280
  • AN ARMY OF 144.000 THAT HAVE THE GREATEST MISSION
  • 00:01:05.290 --> 00:01:09.290
  • IN THE LAST DAYS, TO PREPARE THE WORLD FOR JESUS' RETURN.
  • 00:01:10.000 --> 00:01:14.200
  • LET'S EXPLORE TOGETHER WHAT THE BIBLE FACTS ARE,
  • 00:01:14.210 --> 00:01:17.030
  • ABOUT THE 144.000, AND LEARN HOW YOU CAN RECEIVE
  • 00:01:17.040 --> 00:01:21.030
  • THE SEAL OF THE LIVING GOD.
  • 00:01:21.040 --> 00:01:22.270
  • TONIGHT, OUR PRESENTATION IS GOING TO BE DEALING
  • 00:01:27.040 --> 00:01:29.100
  • WITH THE SUBJECT OF THE 144.000,
  • 00:01:29.110 --> 00:01:32.070
  • WHICH YOU FIND IN CHAPTER 7
  • 00:01:32.080 --> 00:01:34.210
  • AND 14 OF REVELATION, AND THE SEAL OF GOD.
  • 00:01:34.220 --> 00:01:39.170
  • AND IT PICTURES A TIME WHEN ANGELS ARE HOLDING
  • 00:01:39.180 --> 00:01:44.020
  • BACK WINDS OF STRIFE.
  • 00:01:44.030 --> 00:01:46.070
  • AND I REMEMBER HEARING A STORY ABOUT...
  • 00:01:46.080 --> 00:01:49.000
  • I THINK IT WAS IN 2012, IN MARCH,
  • 00:01:49.010 --> 00:01:52.220
  • PAUL WALDEN HAD HIS WIFE AND DAUGHTER CALL.
  • 00:01:52.230 --> 00:01:55.240
  • THEY WERE AT WORK AND THEY SAID,
  • 00:01:55.250 --> 00:01:56.270
  • "HAVE YOU SEEN THE NEWS?
  • 00:01:56.280 --> 00:01:57.280
  • THERE'S A TERRIBLE STREAM OF TORNADOES
  • 00:01:57.290 --> 00:02:00.250
  • THAT ARE COMING THROUGH."
  • 00:02:00.260 --> 00:02:02.060
  • AND HE NEVER PAID MUCH ATTENTION TO STORM WARNINGS,
  • 00:02:02.070 --> 00:02:04.290
  • BUT HE THOUGHT HE OUGHT TO STEP OUTSIDE
  • 00:02:05.000 --> 00:02:06.130
  • AND LOOK AT THE SKY.
  • 00:02:06.140 --> 00:02:07.160
  • AND, RIGHT WHEN HE WENT OUT TO LOOK UP AT THE SKY,
  • 00:02:07.170 --> 00:02:10.050
  • HE SAW THIS GREAT BIG GRAY WALL THAT WAS MOVING TOWARDS HIM,
  • 00:02:10.060 --> 00:02:13.260
  • THAT WAS CHURNING UP HIS NEIGHBOR'S HOUSE.
  • 00:02:13.270 --> 00:02:16.250
  • HE THOUGHT, "OH, THIS IS THE REAL THING."
  • 00:02:16.260 --> 00:02:19.080
  • HE RAN INSIDE, HE GRABBED A COUPLE OF DOGS,
  • 00:02:19.090 --> 00:02:21.100
  • AND HE JUMPED IN THE CLOSET RIGHT BY THEIR STAIRCASE.
  • 00:02:21.110 --> 00:02:24.260
  • AND THEN IT HIT.
  • 00:02:24.270 --> 00:02:26.140
  • YOU'VE HEARD THE EXPRESSION "IT SOUNDS LIKE A FREIGHT TRAIN
  • 00:02:26.150 --> 00:02:28.290
  • IS GOING BY WHEN YOU HAVE A TORNADO GO BY"?
  • 00:02:29.000 --> 00:02:32.280
  • AND THE WHOLE HOUSE BEGAN TO SHAKE
  • 00:02:32.290 --> 00:02:34.240
  • AND HE HAD BOTH HANDS ON THE DOOR,
  • 00:02:34.250 --> 00:02:37.290
  • WITH ALL OF HIS STRENGTH HE WAS HANGING ON
  • 00:02:38.000 --> 00:02:40.060
  • AND TRYING TO KEEP THE DOOR SHUT
  • 00:02:40.070 --> 00:02:41.270
  • AS THE SUCTION OF THE STORM
  • 00:02:41.280 --> 00:02:43.100
  • WAS TRYING TO PULL THE DOOR OPEN
  • 00:02:43.110 --> 00:02:45.190
  • AND SUCK OUT HIM AND HIS DOGS.
  • 00:02:45.200 --> 00:02:48.010
  • AND IT WASN'T VERY LONG BEFORE IT STOPPED,
  • 00:02:48.020 --> 00:02:50.130
  • THE NOISE SETTLED, IT MOVED DOWN AND PASSED AWAY,
  • 00:02:50.140 --> 00:02:53.140
  • AND HE FINALLY GOT THE COURAGE TO OPEN THE DOOR,
  • 00:02:53.150 --> 00:02:55.050
  • AND THIS IS A PICTURE OF WHAT HE SAW
  • 00:02:55.060 --> 00:02:57.040
  • WHEN HE STEPPED OUTSIDE.
  • 00:02:57.050 --> 00:02:58.240
  • THE HOUSE WAS GONE, HE WALKED OUT OF THE CLOSET
  • 00:02:58.250 --> 00:03:01.110
  • AND HE SAW BLUE SKY, EVERYTHING WAS GONE
  • 00:03:01.120 --> 00:03:04.090
  • EXCEPT THE CLOSET AND SOME OF THE STAIRS.
  • 00:03:04.100 --> 00:03:07.190
  • AND HE SAID IT WASN'T LONG AFTER HE WALKED OUTSIDE
  • 00:03:07.200 --> 00:03:09.280
  • AND THE CLOSET FELL OVER AND THEN HAIL BEGAN TO FALL
  • 00:03:09.290 --> 00:03:12.280
  • AND HE FELT LIKE HE WAS GETTING BEATEN UP
  • 00:03:12.290 --> 00:03:14.170
  • BY A BASEBALL BAT.
  • 00:03:14.180 --> 00:03:17.060
  • AND HE FOUND A CONTAINER THAT HELD VACUUM CLEANING
  • 00:03:17.070 --> 00:03:19.280
  • SUPPLIES HE PUT IT ON HIS HEAD, HE SAID,
  • 00:03:19.290 --> 00:03:21.160
  • OR HE WOULD HAVE DIED FROM THE HAIL.
  • 00:03:21.170 --> 00:03:24.200
  • AND HIS WIFE ALWAYS TEASES HIM ABOUT WALKING AROUND
  • 00:03:24.210 --> 00:03:27.070
  • WITH A VACUUM CLEANER ACCESSORY BOX
  • 00:03:27.080 --> 00:03:29.260
  • ON HIS HEAD TO SAVE HIS LIFE.
  • 00:03:29.270 --> 00:03:32.080
  • BUT HE WAS TRYING TO HOLD BACK THE STORM.
  • 00:03:32.090 --> 00:03:37.200
  • WELL, HUMANS AREN'T VERY GOOD AT THAT, ANGELS DO A GOOD JOB.
  • 00:03:37.210 --> 00:03:41.010
  • REVELATION PICTURES THIS HAPPENING.
  • 00:03:41.020 --> 00:03:43.140
  • LET'S START WITH THE 144.000 IN CHAPTER 7 OF REVELATION
  • 00:03:43.150 --> 00:03:47.200
  • AND YOU CAN BEGIN WITH VERSE 1, CHAPTER 7, VERSE 1,
  • 00:03:47.210 --> 00:03:50.230
  • "AFTER THESE THINGS, I SAW FOUR ANGELS STANDING
  • 00:03:51.140 --> 00:03:55.200
  • AT THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH..."
  • 00:03:55.210 --> 00:03:57.020
  • NOW WHAT DO THE FOUR ANGELS REPRESENT?
  • 00:03:57.030 --> 00:03:59.010
  • THE DIVISIONS OF THE COMPASS.
  • 00:03:59.020 --> 00:04:00.210
  • IT'S TALKING ABOUT SIMPLY NORTH, SOUTH, EAST, AND WEST,
  • 00:04:00.220 --> 00:04:03.130
  • IT'S A UNIVERSAL PROBLEM.
  • 00:04:03.140 --> 00:04:05.140
  • IT'S A UNIVERSAL SEALING THAT'S GOING TO TAKE PLACE.
  • 00:04:05.150 --> 00:04:09.280
  • "HOLDING THE FOUR WINDS OF THE EARTH,
  • 00:04:09.290 --> 00:04:12.040
  • THAT THE WIND SHOULD NOT BLOW ON THE EARTH, OR THE SEA,
  • 00:04:12.050 --> 00:04:15.180
  • OR ANY TREE."
  • 00:04:15.190 --> 00:04:17.010
  • THAT'S TALKING ABOUT EVERYTHING ON THE PLANET, THE EARTH,
  • 00:04:17.020 --> 00:04:19.250
  • THE SEA, THE TREES UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS,
  • 00:04:19.260 --> 00:04:22.040
  • IT'S GOING TO BLOW EVENTUALLY.
  • 00:04:22.050 --> 00:04:24.000
  • THOSE WINDS OF STRIFE ARE REALLY...
  • 00:04:24.010 --> 00:04:26.050
  • THEY'RE KIND OF SUMMARIZED IN THE SEVEN LAST PLAGUES.
  • 00:04:26.060 --> 00:04:30.060
  • "THEN I SAW ANOTHER ANGEL ASCENDING FROM THE EAST,
  • 00:04:30.070 --> 00:04:33.060
  • HAVING THE SEAL OF THE LIVING GOD.
  • 00:04:33.070 --> 00:04:36.090
  • AND HE CRIED WITH A LOUD VOICE...
  • 00:04:36.100 --> 00:04:37.270
  • SAYING, 'DO NOT HARM THE EARTH, OR THE SEA,
  • 00:04:37.280 --> 00:04:41.040
  • OR THE TREES TILL WE HAVE SEALED
  • 00:04:41.050 --> 00:04:43.250
  • THE SERVANTS OF OUR GOD ON THEIR FOREHEADS.'"
  • 00:04:43.260 --> 00:04:47.220
  • AND IT GOES ON TO SAY, "I HEARD THE NUMBER OF THOSE
  • 00:04:47.230 --> 00:04:50.000
  • THAT WERE SEALED AND IT WAS 144.000,
  • 00:04:50.010 --> 00:04:54.010
  • 12.000 FROM EACH OF THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL."
  • 00:04:54.020 --> 00:04:57.290
  • AND IT'S AN INTERESTING LIST THAT IS GIVEN.
  • 00:04:58.000 --> 00:05:00.070
  • THEN YOU'LL ALSO READ IN CHAPTER 14 OF REVELATION,
  • 00:05:00.080 --> 00:05:03.100
  • YOU FIND THE SECOND REFERENCE TO THE 144.000,
  • 00:05:03.110 --> 00:05:07.060
  • AND IT GIVES US A LITTLE MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THEM.
  • 00:05:07.070 --> 00:05:10.090
  • "I LOOKED, AND BEHOLD, A LAMB,"
  • 00:05:10.100 --> 00:05:12.100
  • THIS IS VERSE 1 OF CHAPTER 14 REVELATION,
  • 00:05:12.110 --> 00:05:15.020
  • "A LAMB STANDING ON MOUNT ZION,
  • 00:05:15.030 --> 00:05:17.150
  • AND WITH HIM 144.000 HAVING HIS FATHER'S NAME
  • 00:05:17.160 --> 00:05:21.240
  • WRITTEN ON THEIR FOREHEADS."
  • 00:05:21.250 --> 00:05:22.260
  • WELL, 7 SAID IT WAS THE SEAL OF GOD,
  • 00:05:22.270 --> 00:05:24.220
  • HERE IT SAYS HIS FATHER'S NAME. THEY MUST BE SIMILAR.
  • 00:05:24.230 --> 00:05:27.290
  • "AND I HEARD A VOICE FROM HEAVEN,
  • 00:05:28.000 --> 00:05:29.160
  • LIKE THE VOICE OF MANY WATERS,
  • 00:05:29.170 --> 00:05:31.020
  • AND LIKE THE VOICE OF LOUD THUNDER.
  • 00:05:31.030 --> 00:05:33.060
  • AND I HEARD THE SOUND OF HARPS
  • 00:05:33.070 --> 00:05:34.190
  • AND HARPISTS PLAYING THEIR HARPS.
  • 00:05:34.200 --> 00:05:36.260
  • AND THEY SANG AS IT WERE A NEW SONG BEFORE THE THRONE,
  • 00:05:36.270 --> 00:05:40.090
  • BEFORE THE FOUR LIVING CREATURES,
  • 00:05:40.100 --> 00:05:41.180
  • AND BEFORE THE ELDERS, AND NO ONE COULD LEARN
  • 00:05:41.190 --> 00:05:44.000
  • THAT SONG EXCEPT THE 144.000
  • 00:05:44.010 --> 00:05:46.260
  • WHO WERE REDEEMED FROM THE EARTH.
  • 00:05:46.270 --> 00:05:49.120
  • THESE ARE THE ONES
  • 00:05:49.130 --> 00:05:50.140
  • WHO WERE NOT DEFILED WITH WOMEN,
  • 00:05:50.150 --> 00:05:52.130
  • FOR THEY ARE VIRGINS."
  • 00:05:52.140 --> 00:05:53.150
  • WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?
  • 00:05:53.160 --> 00:05:55.130
  • "THESE ARE THE ONES WHO FOLLOW THE LAMB WHEREVER HE GOES.
  • 00:05:55.140 --> 00:05:58.240
  • THEY WERE REDEEMED FROM AMONG MEN
  • 00:05:58.250 --> 00:06:00.220
  • BEING THE FIRSTFRUITS TO GOD AND TO THE LAMB.
  • 00:06:00.230 --> 00:06:04.020
  • AND IN THEIR MOUTH WAS FOUND NO DECEIT FOR THEY ARE
  • 00:06:04.030 --> 00:06:07.040
  • WITHOUT FAULT BEFORE THE THRONE OF GOD."
  • 00:06:07.050 --> 00:06:10.020
  • AND THEN IT GOES ON TO ANOTHER PASSAGE
  • 00:06:10.030 --> 00:06:12.070
  • THAT IS RELATED, BUT WE'LL PAUSE RIGHT THERE.
  • 00:06:12.080 --> 00:06:14.200
  • SO YOU'VE GOT THE 144.000 ARE OBVIOUSLY
  • 00:06:14.210 --> 00:06:16.210
  • A VERY IMPORTANT GROUP.
  • 00:06:16.220 --> 00:06:18.020
  • YOU'VE GOT CHAPTER 7 ADDRESSES THEM,
  • 00:06:18.030 --> 00:06:20.120
  • CHAPTER 14 ADDRESSES THEM.
  • 00:06:20.130 --> 00:06:21.210
  • THEY'RE VERY CLOSE TO THE LORD.
  • 00:06:21.220 --> 00:06:23.070
  • THEY RECEIVE A SPECIAL SEAL.
  • 00:06:23.080 --> 00:06:24.280
  • NOW, TYPICALLY, IF YOU TALK TO SOMEBODY ABOUT REVELATION
  • 00:06:24.290 --> 00:06:28.090
  • AND SOMETHING IN THE FOREHEAD, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT?
  • 00:06:28.100 --> 00:06:32.040
  • EVERYBODY AUTOMATICALLY THINKS ABOUT,
  • 00:06:32.050 --> 00:06:34.200
  • "OH, YOU DON'T WANT ANYTHING IN YOUR FOREHEAD
  • 00:06:34.210 --> 00:06:36.000
  • IN THE LAST DAYS."
  • 00:06:36.010 --> 00:06:37.030
  • SOMEONE TRIES TO PUT ANYTHING IN YOUR FOREHEAD,
  • 00:06:37.040 --> 00:06:38.220
  • RUN THE OTHER WAY.
  • 00:06:38.230 --> 00:06:40.220
  • BUT IF YOU STUDY THE BIBLE, YOU'LL FIND OUT, IN REVELATION,
  • 00:06:40.230 --> 00:06:44.120
  • EVERYBODY'S GOT SOMETHING IN THEIR FOREHEADS
  • 00:06:44.130 --> 00:06:46.180
  • IN THE LAST DAYS.
  • 00:06:46.190 --> 00:06:48.060
  • YOU'VE EITHER GOT THE MARK OF THE BEAST
  • 00:06:48.070 --> 00:06:49.260
  • OR YOU HAVE THE SEAL OF GOD.
  • 00:06:49.270 --> 00:06:51.240
  • YOU JUST WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU'VE GOT THE RIGHT MARK.
  • 00:06:51.250 --> 00:06:53.270
  • AMEN.
  • 00:06:53.280 --> 00:06:55.030
  • AND, SORT OF, WITH THAT AS AN INTRODUCTION,
  • 00:06:55.040 --> 00:06:56.190
  • LET'S GO THROUGH SOME OF OUR QUESTIONS NOW
  • 00:06:56.200 --> 00:06:59.060
  • THAT TALK ABOUT THE 144.000 AND THE SEAL OF GOD.
  • 00:06:59.070 --> 00:07:03.080
  • FIRST QUESTION, WHAT CLUES DOES REVELATION PROVIDE
  • 00:07:03.090 --> 00:07:07.000
  • TO HELP US IDENTIFY WHO ARE THE 144.000?
  • 00:07:07.010 --> 00:07:12.070
  • WELL, THERE'S SEVERAL THINGS, FIRST OF ALL,
  • 00:07:12.080 --> 00:07:14.050
  • IT SAYS THERE'S 12.000 FROM THE 12 TRIBES OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:07:14.060 --> 00:07:18.130
  • NOW THE LIST OF TRIBES THAT ARE GIVEN IN REVELATION
  • 00:07:18.140 --> 00:07:21.210
  • IS DIFFERENT FROM ANY OTHER LIST IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:07:21.220 --> 00:07:25.050
  • THE TWELVE TRIBES ARE LISTED MANY TIMES IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:07:25.060 --> 00:07:28.110
  • THEY USUALLY START WITH THE FIRSTBORN
  • 00:07:28.120 --> 00:07:29.260
  • WHO WAS JUDAH...
  • 00:07:29.270 --> 00:07:30.280
  • I'M SORRY, REUBEN.
  • 00:07:30.290 --> 00:07:32.040
  • BUT, IN REVELATION, IT STARTS WITH JUDAH.
  • 00:07:32.050 --> 00:07:35.000
  • IT'S DIFFERENT. IT'S A DIFFERENT LIST.
  • 00:07:35.010 --> 00:07:37.080
  • YOU'LL FIND THAT IT TALKS ABOUT JOSEPH,
  • 00:07:37.090 --> 00:07:42.140
  • BUT EPHRAIM IS LEFT OUT.
  • 00:07:42.150 --> 00:07:45.040
  • AND SO IT'S A UNIQUE LIST AND YOU NEED TO JUST SAY,
  • 00:07:45.050 --> 00:07:49.010
  • "WHAT'S GOING ON HERE?
  • 00:07:49.020 --> 00:07:50.030
  • ARE THESE REAL, LITERAL JEWS IT'S TALKING ABOUT?"
  • 00:07:50.040 --> 00:07:53.030
  • IN THE LAST DAYS, HE'S GOING TO GET 12.000
  • 00:07:53.040 --> 00:07:55.100
  • FROM EACH OF THE TRIBES.
  • 00:07:55.110 --> 00:07:56.280
  • IF YOU KNOW YOUR JEWISH HISTORY,
  • 00:07:56.290 --> 00:07:58.000
  • YOU'LL KNOW THAT SOME OF THE TRIBES
  • 00:07:58.010 --> 00:07:59.030
  • HAD VERY FEW PEOPLE, AND JUDAH HAD LOTS OF PEOPLE,
  • 00:07:59.040 --> 00:08:02.190
  • HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS.
  • 00:08:02.200 --> 00:08:04.120
  • AND SO THE IDEA OF GETTING AN EVEN NUMBER
  • 00:08:04.130 --> 00:08:06.260
  • FROM EACH OF THE TRIBES, THAT WOULD BE INTERESTING,
  • 00:08:06.270 --> 00:08:09.210
  • BUT I BELIEVE THEY'RE ACTUALLY TALKING ABOUT SPIRITUAL JEWS.
  • 00:08:09.220 --> 00:08:12.100
  • THAT MEANS IT CAN INCLUDE LITERAL JEWS
  • 00:08:12.110 --> 00:08:14.050
  • AND IT CAN INCLUDE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN ADOPTED
  • 00:08:14.060 --> 00:08:17.040
  • INTO THE SEED OF ABRAHAM BY ACCEPTING CHRIST.
  • 00:08:17.050 --> 00:08:21.210
  • LET ME TELL YOU WHY.
  • 00:08:21.220 --> 00:08:23.210
  • YOU READ IN THE BIBLE IN THE OLD TESTAMENT,
  • 00:08:23.220 --> 00:08:25.090
  • FOR INSTANCE, GO TO 2 KINGS 17, VERSE 6.
  • 00:08:25.100 --> 00:08:29.050
  • TEN OF THE TRIBES WERE CONQUERED
  • 00:08:29.060 --> 00:08:31.110
  • BY THE ASSYRIANS WAY BACK HUNDREDS OF YEARS
  • 00:08:31.120 --> 00:08:34.280
  • BEFORE JESUS WAS BORN.
  • 00:08:34.290 --> 00:08:37.220
  • YOU READ THERE,
  • 00:08:37.230 --> 00:08:38.240
  • "IN THE NINTH YEAR OF KING HOSHEA,
  • 00:08:38.250 --> 00:08:40.240
  • THE KING OF ASSYRIA TOOK SAMARIA"
  • 00:08:40.250 --> 00:08:42.230
  • THAT'S THE CAPITAL OF ISRAEL, THE NORTHERN KINGDOM.
  • 00:08:42.240 --> 00:08:45.100
  • "AND CARRIED ISRAEL," THOSE ARE THE TEN TRIBES,
  • 00:08:45.110 --> 00:08:47.160
  • "AWAY TO ASSYRIA."
  • 00:08:47.170 --> 00:08:49.210
  • NOW, LATER, THE SOUTHERN KINGDOM OF JUDAH,
  • 00:08:49.220 --> 00:08:52.130
  • THEY WERE CARRIED TO BABYLON, BUT THEY CAME BACK.
  • 00:08:52.140 --> 00:08:55.010
  • THOSE CARRIED OFF TO ASSYRIA LARGELY INTERMARRIED
  • 00:08:55.020 --> 00:08:58.230
  • AND DISAPPEARED AS A DISTINCT PEOPLE.
  • 00:08:58.240 --> 00:09:02.000
  • AND SO WHEN REVELATION SAYS
  • 00:09:02.010 --> 00:09:03.100
  • 12.000 FROM THE TRIBE OF MANASSEH,
  • 00:09:03.110 --> 00:09:05.280
  • CAN YOU PLEASE SHOW ME SOMEBODY
  • 00:09:05.290 --> 00:09:07.220
  • FROM THE TRIBE OF MANASSEH TODAY?
  • 00:09:07.230 --> 00:09:10.010
  • OR ISSACHAR OR ZEBULUN?
  • 00:09:10.020 --> 00:09:12.240
  • WHEN YOU TALK ABOUT JEWS, YOU'RE TYPICALLY TALKING
  • 00:09:12.250 --> 00:09:15.020
  • ABOUT PEOPLE WHO ARE FROM LEVI, JUDAH, AND BENJAMIN.
  • 00:09:15.030 --> 00:09:19.030
  • YOU READ THE BIBLE, LONG BEFORE JESUS WAS BORN,
  • 00:09:19.040 --> 00:09:21.090
  • IT TELLS EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED TO THE TRIBES.
  • 00:09:21.100 --> 00:09:23.150
  • SOME OF THEM CAME BACK DOWN AND JOINED JUDAH.
  • 00:09:23.160 --> 00:09:26.150
  • THEY INTERMARRIED WITH THE TRIBE OF JUDAH.
  • 00:09:26.160 --> 00:09:28.290
  • YOU'RE NOT GOING TO FIND PEOPLE WHO ARE PUREBRED PEOPLE
  • 00:09:29.000 --> 00:09:32.180
  • FROM ZEBULUN, MANASSEH, ISSACHAR, AND SO FORTH.
  • 00:09:32.190 --> 00:09:37.090
  • SO WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN IT SAYS THAT?
  • 00:09:37.100 --> 00:09:39.230
  • GALATIANS 3:29, "AND IF YOU ARE CHRIST'S,
  • 00:09:39.240 --> 00:09:43.270
  • THEN YOU ARE ABRAHAM'S SEED,
  • 00:09:43.280 --> 00:09:46.020
  • AND HEIRS ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE."
  • 00:09:46.030 --> 00:09:47.180
  • ALL THE PROMISES GOD MADE TO THE JEWS IN THE BIBLE,
  • 00:09:47.190 --> 00:09:50.100
  • NEW AND OLD TESTAMENT,
  • 00:09:50.110 --> 00:09:51.120
  • YOU CAN CLAIM THROUGH CHRIST, AMEN?
  • 00:09:51.130 --> 00:09:54.000
  • THAT'S A WONDERFUL PROMISE, PAUL SAID THAT,
  • 00:09:54.010 --> 00:09:55.210
  • THIS IS NEW TESTAMENT.
  • 00:09:55.220 --> 00:09:56.280
  • PAUL SAID, IN ROMANS 2:28 AND 29,
  • 00:09:56.290 --> 00:09:59.170
  • "FOR HE IS NOT A JEW WHICH IS ONE OUTWARDLY,
  • 00:09:59.180 --> 00:10:03.030
  • NEITHER IS THAT CIRCUMCISION, THAT IS OUTWARD IN THE FLESH,
  • 00:10:03.040 --> 00:10:06.130
  • BUT HE IS A JEW, WHICH IS ONE INWARDLY,
  • 00:10:06.140 --> 00:10:09.000
  • AND CIRCUMCISION IS THAT OF THE HEART..."
  • 00:10:09.010 --> 00:10:11.170
  • THIS WAS THE MESSAGE OF JESUS AND JOHN THE BAPTIST,
  • 00:10:11.180 --> 00:10:14.030
  • THEY SAID TO THEIR JEWISH BRETHREN,
  • 00:10:14.040 --> 00:10:15.230
  • "DO NOT THINK TO SAY WITHIN YOURSELF
  • 00:10:15.240 --> 00:10:18.020
  • 'GOD MUST SAVE US, WE ARE CHILDREN OF ABRAHAM.'
  • 00:10:18.030 --> 00:10:20.120
  • GOD IS ABLE TO RAISE UP
  • 00:10:20.130 --> 00:10:21.160
  • FROM THE STONES CHILDREN UNTO ABRAHAM."
  • 00:10:21.170 --> 00:10:24.140
  • AND JESUS SAID, "MANY WILL COME FROM THE EAST
  • 00:10:24.150 --> 00:10:26.220
  • AND THE WEST AND SIT DOWN IN THE KINGDOM
  • 00:10:26.230 --> 00:10:28.150
  • WITH ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB,"
  • 00:10:28.160 --> 00:10:29.240
  • MEANING THE GENTILES COMING FROM THE EAST AND THE WEST,
  • 00:10:29.250 --> 00:10:32.210
  • AND THE NATURAL CHILDREN, SOME OF THEM WHO DON'T BELIEVE,
  • 00:10:32.220 --> 00:10:35.110
  • WILL BE IN OUTER DARKNESS.
  • 00:10:35.120 --> 00:10:37.200
  • AND SO THE NEW TESTAMENT IS REALLY CLEAR THAT
  • 00:10:37.210 --> 00:10:41.100
  • NOW THE GOSPEL GOES TO EVERYBODY WHOSOEVER WILL.
  • 00:10:41.110 --> 00:10:44.190
  • GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS.
  • 00:10:44.200 --> 00:10:46.280
  • SO THE IDEA THAT TO BE 1 OF THE 144.000
  • 00:10:46.290 --> 00:10:49.180
  • YOU MUST HAVE A DNA TEST IS NOT TAUGHT IN THE BIBLE.
  • 00:10:49.190 --> 00:10:53.180
  • GOD DOES NOT DISCRIMINATE THAT WAY.
  • 00:10:53.190 --> 00:10:55.180
  • IF YOU ARE ABRAHAM'S SEED, YOU ARE HEIRS
  • 00:10:55.190 --> 00:10:58.290
  • ACCORDING TO THE PROMISE, OKAY?

  • AND MOST IMPORTANT, TO SHARE IT WITH OTHERS.
  • 00:11:31.210 --> 00:11:34.120
  • SO WHY DOES IT GIVE THIS LIST AND WHY IS THE LIST UNIQUE
  • 00:11:36.090 --> 00:11:40.030
  • IN REVELATION CHAPTER 7?
  • 00:11:40.040 --> 00:11:42.140
  • I'M GOING TO READ SOMETHING TO YOU.
  • 00:11:42.150 --> 00:11:44.160
  • YOU KNOW, IN HEBREW, WHEN THEY NAME SOMEONE,
  • 00:11:44.170 --> 00:11:46.130
  • EVERY NAME HAD A MEANING.
  • 00:11:46.140 --> 00:11:48.180
  • YOU READ THE STORY ABOUT WHEN, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:11:48.190 --> 00:11:50.090
  • JACOB ENDED UP WITH FOUR WIVES, HE ONLY WANTED RACHEL.
  • 00:11:50.100 --> 00:11:53.020
  • HE ENDED UP WITH RACHEL AND LEAH AND BILHAH AND ZILPAH,
  • 00:11:53.030 --> 00:11:56.100
  • THEIR HANDMAIDS,
  • 00:11:56.110 --> 00:11:57.240
  • AND EVERY TIME THEY'RE ALL FIGHTING
  • 00:11:57.250 --> 00:11:59.140
  • OVER HIS ATTENTION, EVERY TIME THEY GOT PREGNANT,
  • 00:11:59.150 --> 00:12:01.080
  • THEY HAD A CHILD, THE MOTHERS WOULD NAME THE CHILD
  • 00:12:01.090 --> 00:12:04.090
  • AND MAKE A STATEMENT BECAUSE THE NAMES
  • 00:12:04.100 --> 00:12:06.130
  • ALL MEAN SOMETHING IN HEBREW.
  • 00:12:06.140 --> 00:12:08.210
  • THE NAME JUDAH MEANS "I WILL PRAISE THE LORD."
  • 00:12:08.220 --> 00:12:10.230
  • AND WE'RE PUTTING THIS UP FOR YOU ON THE SCREEN.
  • 00:12:10.240 --> 00:12:13.130
  • REUBEN MEANS "HE HAS LOOKED ON ME,"
  • 00:12:13.140 --> 00:12:15.200
  • GAD "GIVEN GOOD FORTUNE," ASHER MEANS "HAPPY AM I,"
  • 00:12:15.210 --> 00:12:19.010
  • NAPHTALI MEANS "MY WRESTLING,"
  • 00:12:19.020 --> 00:12:21.030
  • MANASSEH MEANS "MAKING ME TO FORGET."
  • 00:12:21.040 --> 00:12:23.230
  • IT SAYS, SIMEON MEANS "GOD HEARS ME,"
  • 00:12:23.240 --> 00:12:26.140
  • LEVI "ATTACHED TO ME," ISSACHAR, "PURCHASED ME,"
  • 00:12:26.150 --> 00:12:31.030
  • "DWELLING" IS ZEBULUN,
  • 00:12:31.040 --> 00:12:32.210
  • JOSEPH, "GOD WILL ADD TO ME,"
  • 00:12:32.220 --> 00:12:34.120
  • BENJAMIN, "SON OF HIS RIGHT HAND."
  • 00:12:34.130 --> 00:12:36.220
  • NOW WHAT'S FASCINATING IS, IF YOU TAKE THESE TWELVE NAMES,
  • 00:12:36.230 --> 00:12:42.030
  • LINE THEIR MEANINGS UP THE WAY THEY'RE GIVEN THERE
  • 00:12:42.040 --> 00:12:44.070
  • IN REVELATION, THIS IS WHAT IT SAYS,
  • 00:12:44.080 --> 00:12:45.290
  • LOOK AT THIS PARAGRAPH,
  • 00:12:46.000 --> 00:12:47.180
  • "I WILL PRAISE THE LORD FOR HE HAS LOOKED ON ME
  • 00:12:47.190 --> 00:12:51.030
  • AND GRANTED GOOD FORTUNE,
  • 00:12:51.040 --> 00:12:53.000
  • I AM HAPPY BECAUSE MY WRESTLING,
  • 00:12:53.010 --> 00:12:55.130
  • GOD IS MAKING ME TO FORGET.
  • 00:12:55.140 --> 00:12:57.210
  • GOD HEARS ME AND IS ATTACHED OR JOINED TO ME."
  • 00:12:57.220 --> 00:13:00.290
  • IT'S LIKE A MARRIAGE,
  • 00:13:01.000 --> 00:13:02.010
  • "HE HAS PURCHASED ME A DWELLING"
  • 00:13:02.020 --> 00:13:03.140
  • I'VE GONE TO PREPARE A PLACE FOR YOU
  • 00:13:03.150 --> 00:13:05.110
  • "AND HE WILL ADD TO ME THE SON OF HIS RIGHT HAND,"
  • 00:13:05.120 --> 00:13:08.160
  • MEANING CHRIST.
  • 00:13:08.170 --> 00:13:10.030
  • THE WHOLE STORY OF SALVATION IS TOLD IN THE NAMES,
  • 00:13:10.040 --> 00:13:14.080
  • THE WAY THEY'RE ARRANGED THERE IN REVELATION.
  • 00:13:14.090 --> 00:13:16.150
  • IT'S THE STORY OF REDEMPTION, ISN'T THAT BEAUTIFUL?
  • 00:13:16.160 --> 00:13:19.120
  • THAT'S WHY THE BIBLE IS SUCH AN INCREDIBLE BOOK.
  • 00:13:19.130 --> 00:13:22.090
  • IT TELLS US THE 144.000 HAVE SPECIAL ROBES.
  • 00:13:22.100 --> 00:13:25.280
  • THE BIBLE TELLS US THEY HAVE WASHED THEIR ROBES
  • 00:13:25.290 --> 00:13:28.030
  • AND MADE THEM WHITE IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB,
  • 00:13:28.040 --> 00:13:30.090
  • SYMBOLIZING THEY ARE COVERED
  • 00:13:30.100 --> 00:13:32.190
  • WITH THE RIGHTEOUSNESS OF CHRIST.
  • 00:13:32.200 --> 00:13:35.050
  • IT TELLS US THEY SING A UNIQUE SONG.
  • 00:13:35.060 --> 00:13:37.050
  • THAT DOESN'T MEAN THAT YOU CAN'T READ OFF THEIR MUSIC
  • 00:13:37.060 --> 00:13:39.220
  • BECAUSE IT'S THEIR SONG, IT MEANS THEY'VE GONE
  • 00:13:39.230 --> 00:13:42.080
  • THROUGH AN EXPERIENCE.
  • 00:13:42.090 --> 00:13:44.050
  • IT'S LIKE WHEN THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL WENT THROUGH EGYPT,
  • 00:13:44.060 --> 00:13:47.090
  • THEY SANG THIS SONG OF DELIVERANCE LED BY MIRIAM.
  • 00:13:47.100 --> 00:13:51.010
  • AND, AT THE END OF THEIR 40 YEARS,
  • 00:13:51.020 --> 00:13:52.230
  • MOSES WROTE A SONG THAT TALKED ABOUT THOSE
  • 00:13:52.240 --> 00:13:55.060
  • WHO HAD SURVIVED THEIR WANDERINGS
  • 00:13:55.070 --> 00:13:57.030
  • AND HOW GOD WOULD BE FIRST.
  • 00:13:57.040 --> 00:13:58.130
  • SOMETIMES A SONG, YOU HAVE TO HAVE THE EXPERIENCE
  • 00:13:58.140 --> 00:14:01.130
  • TO KNOW HOW TO SING THE SONG.
  • 00:14:01.140 --> 00:14:03.260
  • IT'S LIKE SOMETIMES YOU'LL HEAR A CHOIR,
  • 00:14:03.270 --> 00:14:06.290
  • YOU MIGHT HEAR A CHOIR IN IRELAND
  • 00:14:07.000 --> 00:14:08.290
  • SINGING A NEGRO SPIRITUAL.
  • 00:14:09.000 --> 00:14:11.180
  • THEY MAY NOT KNOW HOW TO SING IT THE WAY
  • 00:14:11.190 --> 00:14:14.190
  • IT WAS WRITTEN BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT HAD
  • 00:14:14.200 --> 00:14:17.090
  • THE EXPERIENCE THAT GAVE BIRTH TO THE SONG.
  • 00:14:17.100 --> 00:14:21.180
  • DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?
  • 00:14:21.190 --> 00:14:22.260
  • AND SO THOSE WHO ARE THE 144.000,
  • 00:14:22.270 --> 00:14:25.100
  • THEY'RE SINGING A SONG NOBODY ELSE CAN SING. WHY?
  • 00:14:25.110 --> 00:14:28.130
  • BECAUSE IT SAYS THERE IN REVELATION,
  • 00:14:28.140 --> 00:14:30.050
  • THESE ARE THOSE WHO...
  • 00:14:30.060 --> 00:14:31.120
  • THEY'VE COME OUT OF A GREAT TRIBULATION.
  • 00:14:31.130 --> 00:14:34.020
  • THEY FOLLOWED THE LAMB IN A CLOSE WAY,
  • 00:14:34.030 --> 00:14:36.040
  • UNLIKE ANYONE ELSE.
  • 00:14:36.050 --> 00:14:37.270
  • IT SAYS THEY SANG, AS IT WERE, A NEW SONG.
  • 00:14:37.280 --> 00:14:40.160
  • SOMETHING ELSE IT TELLS US,
  • 00:14:40.170 --> 00:14:41.170
  • THEY FOLLOW THE LAMB WHEREVER HE GOES.
  • 00:14:41.180 --> 00:14:45.180
  • BY THE WAY, IF YOU WANT TO FOLLOW THE LAMB THERE,
  • 00:14:45.190 --> 00:14:49.020
  • THEN, YOU MUST FIRST FOLLOW THE LAMB HERE NOW.
  • 00:14:49.030 --> 00:14:53.060
  • WOW. AMEN.
  • 00:14:53.070 --> 00:14:54.200
  • AND YOU CAN'T SAY, "WELL, I CAN'T WAIT TO GET TO HEAVEN
  • 00:14:54.210 --> 00:14:57.000
  • AND START FOLLOWING THE LAMB."
  • 00:14:57.010 --> 00:14:58.130
  • YOU WON'T BE IN HEAVEN UNLESS YOU START FOLLOWING HIM NOW.
  • 00:14:58.140 --> 00:15:02.190
  • A CHRISTIAN IS A FOLLOWER OF CHRIST.
  • 00:15:02.200 --> 00:15:05.110
  • AND IT SAYS THEY ARE VIRGINS,
  • 00:15:05.120 --> 00:15:07.000
  • AND THIS HAS ALWAYS THROWN PEOPLE.
  • 00:15:07.010 --> 00:15:08.150
  • DOES THAT MEAN ALL THE 144.000 ARE WOMEN?
  • 00:15:08.160 --> 00:15:11.180
  • BECAUSE THE TERM THERE, IN GREEK,
  • 00:15:11.190 --> 00:15:12.270
  • IT DOES SEEM TO IMPLY THE FEMININE SIDE.
  • 00:15:12.280 --> 00:15:15.250
  • KEEP IN MIND, IN REVELATION, IT TALKS ABOUT BABYLON
  • 00:15:15.260 --> 00:15:18.260
  • HAS DAUGHTERS THAT ARE HARLOTS, UNFAITHFUL.
  • 00:15:18.270 --> 00:15:23.140
  • THE 144.000, IT'S SAYING THEY ARE VIRGINS
  • 00:15:23.150 --> 00:15:26.020
  • FOR THEY ARE NOT DEFILED.
  • 00:15:26.030 --> 00:15:28.000
  • IT'S TALKING ABOUT THEY ARE A PART OF THE TRUTH,
  • 00:15:28.010 --> 00:15:30.170
  • THEY'VE NOT BEEN DEFILED BY THE WINE OF BABYLON.
  • 00:15:30.180 --> 00:15:34.080
  • IT'S SIMPLY SAYING, THEY'RE NOT TALKING ABOUT
  • 00:15:34.090 --> 00:15:35.260
  • SEX AT ALL, IT'S TALKING ABOUT THEY ARE A PURE GROUP
  • 00:15:35.270 --> 00:15:38.260
  • BECAUSE THEY BELIEVED THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS.
  • 00:15:38.270 --> 00:15:40.250
  • THEY ARE UNDEFILED BY THE FALSE TEACHINGS.
  • 00:15:40.260 --> 00:15:43.090
  • EVERYTHING THAT WE'VE BEEN TELLING YOU
  • 00:15:43.100 --> 00:15:44.290
  • ABOUT THE 144.000, YOU KNOW WHAT THE KEY IS
  • 00:15:45.000 --> 00:15:47.010
  • TO UNDERSTANDING IT?
  • 00:15:47.020 --> 00:15:49.010
  • THEY REPRESENT MODERN-DAY APOSTLES.
  • 00:15:49.020 --> 00:15:52.260
  • SEE, IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, I'M SORRY,
  • 00:15:52.270 --> 00:15:54.050
  • IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, RATHER, JESUS PICKED
  • 00:15:54.060 --> 00:15:56.090
  • TWELVE APOSTLES AND HE SAID,
  • 00:15:56.100 --> 00:15:58.190
  • "I WANT YOU TO BE MY ADVOCATES
  • 00:15:58.200 --> 00:16:01.100
  • TO TAKE THIS MESSAGE TO THE WORLD."
  • 00:16:01.110 --> 00:16:03.060
  • BUT THEY WERE NOT THE ONLY ONES SAVED,
  • 00:16:03.070 --> 00:16:04.280
  • THEY WERE A SPECIAL GROUP OF LEADERS.
  • 00:16:04.290 --> 00:16:07.090
  • BEFORE THE HOLY SPIRIT IS POURED OUT
  • 00:16:07.100 --> 00:16:08.280
  • IN ACTS CHAPTER 2, JUDAS HAS KILLED HIMSELF,
  • 00:16:08.290 --> 00:16:12.220
  • PETER SAID, "THERE'S ONLY 11 OF US NOW,
  • 00:16:12.230 --> 00:16:14.280
  • WE NEED TO REPLACE JUDAS AND GET BACK TO THE NUMBER 12."
  • 00:16:14.290 --> 00:16:17.250
  • WHEN THEY REPLACED JUDAS,
  • 00:16:17.260 --> 00:16:18.280
  • THE HOLY SPIRIT FALLS OUT IN THE NEXT VERSE.
  • 00:16:18.290 --> 00:16:21.210
  • BUT THERE'S NOT JUST 12 THAT RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT,
  • 00:16:21.220 --> 00:16:24.150
  • THERE'S A 120 IN THE UPPER ROOM,
  • 00:16:24.160 --> 00:16:27.000
  • AND THEN 3.000 ARE CONVERTED AS A RESULT OF WHAT THEY DO
  • 00:16:27.010 --> 00:16:31.090
  • WHICH LEADS TO THE NEXT QUESTION,
  • 00:16:31.100 --> 00:16:33.150
  • ARE THE 144.000 THE ONLY ONES SAVED WHEN JESUS COMES?
  • 00:16:33.160 --> 00:16:37.290
  • WELL, IF YOU DO THE MATH, THAT WOULD BE PRETTY SAD
  • 00:16:38.000 --> 00:16:39.270
  • BECAUSE THERE ARE ABOUT 7 BILLION PEOPLE
  • 00:16:39.280 --> 00:16:43.050
  • IN THE WORLD TODAY, THERE'S MORE THAN 7 BILLION.
  • 00:16:43.060 --> 00:16:45.140
  • AND IF ONLY 144.000 ARE GOING TO BE SAVED,
  • 00:16:45.150 --> 00:16:50.030
  • THAT MEANS YOUR CHANCE IS ABOUT 1 OUT OF 50.000.
  • 00:16:50.040 --> 00:16:55.100
  • IT'S STILL BETTER THAN THE LOTTERY IN FLORIDA,
  • 00:16:55.110 --> 00:16:57.030
  • DID YOU KNOW THAT?
  • 00:16:57.040 --> 00:16:59.050
  • BUT IT'S NOT GOOD.
  • 00:16:59.060 --> 00:17:02.150
  • NO, THEY'RE NOT THE ONLY ONES SAVED,
  • 00:17:02.160 --> 00:17:05.010
  • THEY ARE A SPECIAL GROUP OF LEADERS.
  • 00:17:05.020 --> 00:17:06.260
  • IN THE SAME WAY, LET ME MAKE THE 144.000 REALLY EASY FOR YOU
  • 00:17:06.270 --> 00:17:10.070
  • IN THE SAME WAY THAT JESUS HAD 12 APOSTLES
  • 00:17:10.080 --> 00:17:12.290
  • THAT FOLLOWED HIM WHEREVER HE WENT,
  • 00:17:13.000 --> 00:17:15.010
  • THAT HAD A SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM THAT SANG...
  • 00:17:15.020 --> 00:17:18.100
  • YOU KNOW, THE BIBLE SAYS THAT JESUS,
  • 00:17:18.110 --> 00:17:19.190
  • THE ONLY TIME HE SANG, HE SANG WITH THE 12,
  • 00:17:19.200 --> 00:17:22.180
  • HE SANG OTHER TIMES, BUT THE ONLY TIME RECORDED,
  • 00:17:22.190 --> 00:17:24.240
  • IN THE BIBLE, WHEN JESUS SANG, HE SANG WITH THE 12 APOSTLES
  • 00:17:24.250 --> 00:17:28.000
  • JUST BEFORE HE WENT TO THE CROSS.
  • 00:17:28.010 --> 00:17:30.010
  • THEY SANG WITH THE LORD A SPECIAL SONG.
  • 00:17:30.020 --> 00:17:32.200
  • AND SO, ALL THE THINGS ABOUT THE 144.000, BY THE WAY,
  • 00:17:32.210 --> 00:17:36.180
  • THIS WAS WRITTEN BY AN APOSTLE, ISN'T IT?
  • 00:17:36.190 --> 00:17:39.110
  • HE'S TALKING ABOUT THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS
  • 00:17:39.120 --> 00:17:41.290
  • DURING THE FIRST COMING.
  • 00:17:42.000 --> 00:17:43.140
  • THERE'S GOING TO BE AN ARMY OF APOSTLES
  • 00:17:43.150 --> 00:17:45.240
  • GETTING THE WORLD READY FOR THE SECOND COMING.
  • 00:17:45.250 --> 00:17:48.240
  • AMEN. DOES THAT MAKE SENSE?
  • 00:17:48.250 --> 00:17:50.120
  • THAT'S THE 144.000.
  • 00:17:50.130 --> 00:17:52.100
  • BUT NOW WE'VE LEARNED A LITTLE BIT ABOUT THEM,
  • 00:17:52.110 --> 00:17:55.000
  • WHAT'S THE SPECIAL NAME IN THEIR FOREHEADS?
  • 00:17:55.010 --> 00:17:57.250
  • IT TALKS ABOUT A NAME, A SEAL.
  • 00:17:57.260 --> 00:18:00.220
  • KEEP IN MIND, IT'S NOT TALKING ABOUT A TATTOO.
  • 00:18:00.230 --> 00:18:04.160
  • YOU'RE GOING TO FIND OUT ALL THROUGH THE BIBLE
  • 00:18:04.170 --> 00:18:06.210
  • IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, IT TALKS ABOUT
  • 00:18:06.220 --> 00:18:08.030
  • IN THE HAND AND IN THE FOREHEAD,
  • 00:18:08.040 --> 00:18:10.060
  • THAT MEANS IN YOUR ACTIONS AND IN YOUR THOUGHTS.
  • 00:18:10.070 --> 00:18:13.230
  • IN DEUTERONOMY 5, MOSES REPEATS THE TEN COMMANDMENTS,
  • 00:18:13.240 --> 00:18:16.200
  • IN DEUTERONOMY 6, HE SAYS, "YOU'LL BIND THEM AS A SIGN
  • 00:18:16.210 --> 00:18:19.000
  • ON YOUR HAND, AND THEY'LL BE AS FRONTLETS
  • 00:18:19.010 --> 00:18:21.020
  • BETWEEN YOUR EYES," WHAT'S THAT?
  • 00:18:21.030 --> 00:18:23.080
  • FOREHEAD, THAT THE LORD'S LAW MIGHT BE IN YOUR HEART,
  • 00:18:23.090 --> 00:18:27.120
  • ANOTHER SYMBOL.
  • 00:18:27.130 --> 00:18:28.150
  • IN THE HAND MEANS IN THE ACTIONS,
  • 00:18:28.160 --> 00:18:30.120
  • IN THE FOREHEAD MEANS IN THE WORSHIP,
  • 00:18:30.130 --> 00:18:32.090
  • IN THE THOUGHTS.
  • 00:18:32.100 --> 00:18:33.260
  • I'LL MAKE SOMETHING REALLY CLEAR.
  • 00:18:33.270 --> 00:18:36.280
  • IN THE LAST DAYS, IF YOU'VE GOT THE LAW OF THE LORD
  • 00:18:36.290 --> 00:18:39.100
  • IN YOUR HEART AND YOUR ACTIONS AND YOUR MIND,
  • 00:18:39.110 --> 00:18:42.010
  • YOU WILL NOT HAVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST.
  • 00:18:42.020 --> 00:18:44.160
  • IF YOU DON'T HAVE THE LAW OF GOD
  • 00:18:44.170 --> 00:18:46.250
  • IN YOUR HEART AND YOUR HAND AND YOUR HEAD,
  • 00:18:46.260 --> 00:18:48.190
  • YOU WILL HAVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST.
  • 00:18:48.200 --> 00:18:50.100
  • IT'S JUST ONE WAY OR THE OTHER.
  • 00:18:50.110 --> 00:18:53.250
  • NOW, YOU NOTICE IN EZEKIEL 9, WE ALWAYS THINK
  • 00:18:53.260 --> 00:18:56.050
  • THE MARK IS THE BAD THING, IF YOU READ EZEKIEL 9,
  • 00:18:56.060 --> 00:18:58.120
  • THERE'S ANOTHER VISION THERE.
  • 00:18:58.130 --> 00:18:59.270
  • BY THE WAY, REVELATION IS REFERRING BACK TO EZEKIEL,
  • 00:18:59.280 --> 00:19:04.010
  • THAT EVERYBODY IN JERUSALEM WAS TO BE DESTROYED
  • 00:19:04.020 --> 00:19:06.270
  • EXCEPT THOSE THAT HAD THIS MARK PLACED ON THEM BY THE ANGEL.
  • 00:19:06.280 --> 00:19:10.100
  • EVERYBODY IN EZEKIEL 9 WHO GETS THE MARK IS SAVED
  • 00:19:10.110 --> 00:19:14.140
  • BECAUSE THEY ARE SIGHING AND CRYING
  • 00:19:14.150 --> 00:19:16.100
  • FOR THE ABOMINATIONS THAT ARE DONE IN ISRAEL
  • 00:19:16.110 --> 00:19:18.130
  • BECAUSE THERE WAS FALSE WORSHIP THAT WAS HAPPENING
  • 00:19:18.140 --> 00:19:21.130
  • AMONG THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL.
  • 00:19:21.140 --> 00:19:23.250
  • AND YOU READ THAT CHAPTER AND YOU'LL UNDERSTAND THAT.
  • 00:19:23.260 --> 00:19:27.140
  • SO WHAT IS THE SEAL OF GOD?
  • 00:19:27.150 --> 00:19:29.280
  • ALL RIGHT, WE TALKED ABOUT THE 144.000,
  • 00:19:29.290 --> 00:19:31.270
  • WE'RE GOING TO SPEND THE REST OF OUR TIME TALKING ABOUT THIS
  • 00:19:31.280 --> 00:19:34.130
  • VERY IMPORTANT SUBJECT, AND YOU PRAY FOR ME
  • 00:19:34.140 --> 00:19:36.120
  • AS I PROCEED BECAUSE I REALLY WANT YOU
  • 00:19:36.130 --> 00:19:38.100
  • TO GET THIS, FRIENDS, IT IS VERY IMPORTANT.
  • 00:19:38.110 --> 00:19:41.080
  • ALL RIGHT, FIRST OF ALL, SEAL OF GOD IS THE HOLY SPIRIT.
  • 00:19:41.090 --> 00:19:46.110
  • YOU ALREADY SORT OF KNEW THAT.
  • 00:19:46.120 --> 00:19:48.070
  • THOSE THAT HAVE THE MARK OF THE BEAST,
  • 00:19:48.080 --> 00:19:49.230
  • WHOSE SPIRIT DO THEY HAVE?
  • 00:19:49.240 --> 00:19:51.210
  • SATAN. THE DEVIL.
  • 00:19:51.220 --> 00:19:53.060
  • THOSE THAT HAVE SEAL OF GOD, WHOSE SPIRIT DO THEY HAVE?
  • 00:19:53.070 --> 00:19:56.250
  • IT SAYS THERE IN EPHESIANS 4:30,
  • 00:19:56.260 --> 00:19:58.190
  • "DO NOT GRIEVE THE HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD,
  • 00:19:58.200 --> 00:20:00.200
  • WHERE WITH YOU ARE SEALED FOR THE DAY OF REDEMPTION."
  • 00:20:00.210 --> 00:20:04.280
  • THERE'S A SEAL OF THE HOLY SPIRIT
  • 00:20:04.290 --> 00:20:06.120
  • THAT HAPPENS INSIDE.
  • 00:20:06.130 --> 00:20:08.000
  • BUT THERE'S SOMETHING THAT IS MORE TANGIBLE THAN THAT
  • 00:20:08.010 --> 00:20:11.040
  • THAT CAN BE SEEN IN THE LIFE,
  • 00:20:11.050 --> 00:20:12.210
  • AND YOU'LL FIND THAT IN THIS VERSE,
  • 00:20:12.220 --> 00:20:14.030
  • ISAIAH 8:16, "BIND UP THE TESTIMONY,
  • 00:20:14.040 --> 00:20:18.210
  • SEAL THE LAW AMONG MY DISCIPLES."
  • 00:20:18.220 --> 00:20:22.250
  • CAN THE LAW BE SEALED IN THE HEART?
  • 00:20:22.260 --> 00:20:26.090
  • SO THE LAW OF GOD, IN A SENSE, IS THE SEAL.
  • 00:20:26.100 --> 00:20:28.120
  • WHAT'S THE NEW COVENANT?
  • 00:20:28.130 --> 00:20:29.160
  • "I'LL TAKE MY LAW AND WRITE IT IN THEIR HEARTS."
  • 00:20:29.170 --> 00:20:33.120
  • BUT WE'RE GOING TO GO A STEP DEEPER
  • 00:20:33.130 --> 00:20:35.060
  • TO FIND OUT WHAT IS THAT SEAL IN THE LAW.
  • 00:20:35.070 --> 00:20:39.040
  • I COULD... NOW, TYPICALLY, A SEAL,
  • 00:20:39.050 --> 00:20:41.110
  • IN BIBLE TIMES, YOU KNOW,
  • 00:20:41.120 --> 00:20:42.140
  • WHEN YOU WOULD MAKE A DOCUMENT OFFICIAL,
  • 00:20:42.150 --> 00:20:44.080
  • THEY'D POUR WAX ON THE SEAL LIKE YOU DO
  • 00:20:44.090 --> 00:20:46.180
  • WITH AN ENVELOPE, THEY'D STAMP IT
  • 00:20:46.190 --> 00:20:48.020
  • WITH THE GOVERNMENT SEAL AND THE SEAL ALWAYS CONTAINED
  • 00:20:48.030 --> 00:20:50.210
  • THREE CHARACTERISTICS.
  • 00:20:50.220 --> 00:20:52.120
  • IT WOULD HAVE THE NAME OF THE OFFICIAL, THE TITLE,
  • 00:20:52.130 --> 00:20:57.210
  • AND THE TERRITORY.
  • 00:20:57.220 --> 00:20:59.270
  • FOR EXAMPLE, I'VE GOT A COPY HERE OF QUEEN ELIZABETH
  • 00:20:59.280 --> 00:21:04.070
  • AND IN CANADA, IT SAYS, "QUEEN OF CANADA, ELIZABETH"
  • 00:21:04.080 --> 00:21:09.140
  • AND THAT'S THE NAME,
  • 00:21:09.150 --> 00:21:10.160
  • QUEEN THE OFFICE, ELIZABETH, CANADA.
  • 00:21:10.170 --> 00:21:14.140
  • AND SO YOU WOULD HAVE THREE CHARACTERISTICS.
  • 00:21:14.150 --> 00:21:16.240
  • WHEN PONTIUS PILATE PUT A SEAL ON THE TOMB OF JESUS,
  • 00:21:16.250 --> 00:21:19.210
  • WHAT DID IT SAY?
  • 00:21:19.220 --> 00:21:21.010
  • PONTIUS PILATE, HIS NAME, GOVERNOR,
  • 00:21:21.020 --> 00:21:23.140
  • HIS OFFICE, JUDEA, HIS TERRITORY.
  • 00:21:23.150 --> 00:21:27.120
  • WHEN KING DARIUS PUT A SEAL, THE BIBLE SAYS
  • 00:21:27.130 --> 00:21:29.280
  • HE PUT A SEAL ON THE STONE PLACED ON THE LION'S DEN,
  • 00:21:29.290 --> 00:21:33.210
  • WHAT DID IT SAY?
  • 00:21:33.220 --> 00:21:34.280
  • "DARIUS, KING, MEDO-PERSIA," YOU'VE GOT THOSE THREE THINGS
  • 00:21:34.290 --> 00:21:38.000
  • WERE ALWAYS IN A SEAL.
  • 00:21:38.010 --> 00:21:40.000
  • YOU EVER SEE THE PRESIDENTIAL SEAL?
  • 00:21:40.010 --> 00:21:42.170
  • IT'S GOING TO SAY THE PRESIDENT'S NAME,
  • 00:21:42.180 --> 00:21:44.150
  • PRESIDENT, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
  • 00:21:44.160 --> 00:21:47.180
  • AND SO YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE THOSE THREE CHARACTERISTICS.
  • 00:21:47.190 --> 00:21:49.230
  • DO YOU FIND THE SEAL OF GOD IN THE LAW OF GOD?
  • 00:21:49.240 --> 00:21:52.170
  • YOU DO.
  • 00:21:52.180 --> 00:21:54.020
  • IT'S IN THE MIDDLE OF GOD'S LAW,
  • 00:21:54.030 --> 00:21:56.070
  • IN THE LONGEST OF THE TEN COMMANDMENTS,
  • 00:21:56.080 --> 00:21:59.080
  • AND HERE'S WHAT IT READS
  • 00:21:59.090 --> 00:22:00.120
  • AND YOU READ IN EXODUS CHAPTER 20, VERSE 8,
  • 00:22:00.130 --> 00:22:03.090
  • "REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY, TO KEEP IT HOLY.
  • 00:22:03.100 --> 00:22:06.050
  • SIX DAYS YOU SHALL LABOR AND DO ALL YOUR WORK,
  • 00:22:06.060 --> 00:22:10.030
  • BUT THE SEVENTH DAY IS THE SABBATH
  • 00:22:10.040 --> 00:22:12.170
  • OF THE LORD YOUR GOD.
  • 00:22:12.180 --> 00:22:13.270
  • IN IT YOU SHALL NOT DO ANY WORK, YOU OR YOUR SON,
  • 00:22:13.280 --> 00:22:17.070
  • OR YOUR DAUGHTER, YOUR MALE SERVANT,
  • 00:22:17.080 --> 00:22:18.270
  • OR YOUR FEMALE SERVANT.
  • 00:22:18.280 --> 00:22:20.130
  • NOR YOUR CATTLE, OR YOUR STRANGER
  • 00:22:20.140 --> 00:22:22.020
  • WHO IS WITHIN YOUR GATES."
  • 00:22:22.030 --> 00:22:23.130
  • NOW HERE, WATCH CAREFULLY, "FOR IN SIX DAYS THE LORD"
  • 00:22:23.140 --> 00:22:27.250
  • JEHOVAH, HIS NAME, CREATED "MADE",
  • 00:22:27.260 --> 00:22:32.000
  • HIS OFFICE HE'S THE CREATOR AND SUSTAINER
  • 00:22:32.010 --> 00:22:34.010
  • "THE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH, AND THE SEA..."
  • 00:22:34.020 --> 00:22:37.090
  • THERE YOU HAVE THE NAME OF GOD, THE TITLE OF GOD,
  • 00:22:37.100 --> 00:22:40.170
  • THE TERRITORY OF GOD,
  • 00:22:40.180 --> 00:22:42.070
  • IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LAW OF GOD IS THIS SEAL.
  • 00:22:42.080 --> 00:22:46.090
  • AND WHAT WE'RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT NOW
  • 00:22:46.100 --> 00:22:48.190
  • IS THE SABBATH COMMANDMENT AND WHY IT IS
  • 00:22:48.200 --> 00:22:51.210
  • AN IMPORTANT ISSUE IN THE LAST DAYS
  • 00:22:51.220 --> 00:22:53.290
  • BECAUSE IT TALKS ABOUT RESTING IN THE LORD.
  • 00:22:54.000 --> 00:22:58.010
  • IT TALKS ABOUT HAVING A RELATIONSHIP.
  • 00:22:58.020 --> 00:22:59.260
  • IT TALKS ABOUT HAVING THE FATHER'S NAME.
  • 00:22:59.270 --> 00:23:01.270
  • IS THE FATHER'S NAME IN THAT COMMANDMENT?
  • 00:23:01.280 --> 00:23:04.080
  • JEHOVAH, "THE LORD MADE HEAVENS AND THE EARTH,
  • 00:23:04.090 --> 00:23:06.250
  • THE SEA AND ALL THIS IS IN THEM,
  • 00:23:06.260 --> 00:23:08.090
  • AND RESTED THE SEVENTH DAY.
  • 00:23:08.100 --> 00:23:09.260
  • THEREFORE THE LORD BLESSED THE SABBATH DAY
  • 00:23:09.270 --> 00:23:12.190
  • AND HE HALLOWED IT."
  • 00:23:12.200 --> 00:23:13.210
  • THAT MEANS HE MADE IT HOLY.
  • 00:23:13.220 --> 00:23:15.230
  • SO HERE YOU'VE GOT THOSE THREE CHARACTERISTICS,
  • 00:23:15.240 --> 00:23:18.030
  • YOU'VE GOT HIS TITLE, YOU'VE GOT HIS TERRITORY,
  • 00:23:18.040 --> 00:23:21.110
  • YOU'VE GOT HIS NAME, ALL IN THE MIDDLE OF THE LAW.
  • 00:23:21.120 --> 00:23:24.090
  • NOW I WANT YOU TO JUST SEE, FROM THE PERSPECTIVE
  • 00:23:24.100 --> 00:23:28.030
  • OF THE BIBLE AND HEAVEN, WHY THIS WOULD BE SO IMPORTANT.
  • 00:23:28.040 --> 00:23:32.250
  • IS THERE A PLACE IN THE WORLD TODAY
  • 00:23:32.260 --> 00:23:34.090
  • IF I WAS GOING TO SAY, "I'M GOING TO THE HOLY LAND.
  • 00:23:34.100 --> 00:23:36.060
  • I'M GOING ON A HOLY LAND TOUR," WHERE AM I GOING?
  • 00:23:36.070 --> 00:23:38.190
  • ISRAEL. ISRAEL.
  • 00:23:38.200 --> 00:23:40.240
  • NOT TOO MANY PEOPLE DISPUTE THAT.
  • 00:23:40.250 --> 00:23:42.160
  • AND, IF I'M IN ISRAEL, I'M GOING TO SAY,
  • 00:23:42.170 --> 00:23:43.250
  • "I'M GOING TO THE HOLY CITY," WHERE AM I GOING?
  • 00:23:43.260 --> 00:23:45.240
  • JERUSALEM. JERUSALEM.
  • 00:23:45.250 --> 00:23:48.040
  • AND THEN, IF I SAY, I'M IN JERUSALEM,
  • 00:23:48.050 --> 00:23:49.220
  • I'M GOING TO GO VISIT THE HOLY MOUNT, MOUNT MORIAH,
  • 00:23:49.230 --> 00:23:53.190
  • SOMETIMES CALLED MOUNT ZION, IT'S WHERE THE TEMPLE WAS.
  • 00:23:53.200 --> 00:23:56.290
  • AND, IN ANCIENT TIMES, IF YOU WENT TO THE TEMPLE,
  • 00:23:57.000 --> 00:23:59.030
  • YOU'D GO TO THE HOLY TEMPLE.
  • 00:23:59.040 --> 00:24:01.130
  • AND, IN THE HOLY TEMPLE, THEY HAD A PLACE CALLED
  • 00:24:01.140 --> 00:24:03.000
  • THE HOLY PLACE, BUT THE HOLY PLACE
  • 00:24:03.010 --> 00:24:06.150
  • HAD AN INNER SANCTUM CALLED THE HOLY OF HOLIES,
  • 00:24:06.160 --> 00:24:10.130
  • AND THERE WAS ONLY ONE THING IN THE HOLY OF HOLIES.
  • 00:24:10.140 --> 00:24:13.150
  • WHAT WAS IT? THE ARK.
  • 00:24:13.160 --> 00:24:15.030
  • AN ARK, GOLDEN BOX, WE'VE ALL HEARD ABOUT
  • 00:24:15.040 --> 00:24:17.130
  • THIS SACRED GOLDEN BOX THAT'S STILL MISSING TODAY.
  • 00:24:17.140 --> 00:24:20.120
  • WHAT MADE THE GOLDEN BOX SUCH A NATIONAL TREASURE?
  • 00:24:20.130 --> 00:24:24.210
  • WHAT DID IT HAVE IN THERE? TEN COMMANDMENTS.
  • 00:24:24.220 --> 00:24:27.190
  • AND, IN THE TEN COMMANDMENTS, DO YOU FIND THE WORD HOLY?
  • 00:24:27.200 --> 00:24:31.100
  • YES. HOW MANY TIMES?
  • 00:24:31.110 --> 00:24:33.270
  • ONE TIME. WHERE IS IT?
  • 00:24:33.280 --> 00:24:35.170
  • IT'S IN THE SABBATH COMMANDMENT.
  • 00:24:35.180 --> 00:24:38.160
  • BECAUSE GOD WANTS TO MAKE US HOLY.
  • 00:24:38.170 --> 00:24:42.170
  • AND LIFE IS COMPOSED OF TIME.
  • 00:24:42.180 --> 00:24:46.050
  • GOD IS LOVE. YOU WITH ME?
  • 00:24:46.060 --> 00:24:48.290
  • YOU CANNOT LOVE WITHOUT TIME.
  • 00:24:49.000 --> 00:24:52.010
  • WIVES USUALLY GET THAT BETTER THAN HUSBANDS.
  • 00:24:52.020 --> 00:24:56.150
  • THEY SAY, "OH YOU NEVER DO ANYTHING WITH ME."
  • 00:24:56.160 --> 00:24:57.240
  • "I'VE BEEN HOME ALL DAY."
  • 00:24:57.250 --> 00:24:59.050
  • "BUT, YEAH, YOU'VE BEEN ON YOUR COMPUTER."
  • 00:24:59.060 --> 00:25:01.140
  • NOW THIS CONVERSATION NEVER HAPPENED IN OUR HOME.
  • 00:25:01.150 --> 00:25:04.230
  • BUT I SAID, "I WAS HERE." "THAT'S NOT QUALITY TIME."
  • 00:25:04.240 --> 00:25:09.140
  • SO WE LIVE ALL WEEK LONG, BUT DO WE HAVE QUALITY TIME?
  • 00:25:09.150 --> 00:25:12.090
  • BECAUSE LOVE IS NOURISHED IN QUALITY TIME.
  • 00:25:12.100 --> 00:25:17.120
  • GOD, WHEN HE CREATED THE WORLD, HE CREATED AND SANCTIFIED
  • 00:25:17.130 --> 00:25:20.100
  • A QUALITY TIME TO NURTURE OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM.
  • 00:25:20.110 --> 00:25:24.120
  • AND, IF YOU LOVE GOD,
  • 00:25:24.130 --> 00:25:25.250
  • IF YOU KNOW GOD YOU'LL LOVE HIM,
  • 00:25:25.260 --> 00:25:26.280
  • IF YOU LOVE HIM, YOU'LL OBEY HIM.
  • 00:25:26.290 --> 00:25:28.000
  • THE DEVIL IS TRYING TO DESTROY THE QUALITY TIME
  • 00:25:28.010 --> 00:25:31.210
  • AND THE LOVE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PEOPLE AND GOD,
  • 00:25:31.220 --> 00:25:34.240
  • AND HE IS ESPECIALLY ATTACKING THE SABBATH.
