some notes on my studies in Revelation:
Revelation 7 Authorized (King James) Version (AKJV)
7 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.
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,
3 saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
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 seal of God is certainly the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. so this goes back to the beginning of the Day of Pentecost. The two witnesses are seen by God as just 1 even though they appear in time at two different times.
Zech 4 explains that they are on either side of the seven churches.
So these one hundred forty and four thousand that were sealed are these two witnesses.
It is not an certainly NUMBER of people. That is a mistake most people make in trying to understand Scripture.
They make up the Wall of the Holy City. They are not finished until the very end when they shall have brought the last judgments of God on this earth.
Daniel and John both saw two….. one on either side of the River.
These ‘two’ are these ‘two’ witnesses with the seal of God in their foreheads. They are the TREE OF LIFE.
Jesus is the VINE of this tree. Those with the Holy Ghost seal are the branches, leaves and fruit of this tree of life.
It is called a HER in Revelation. It is the bride of Christ.
At the finishing of the ministering of the first part of these witnesses, the Apostolic Church in Acts, the beast out of the bottomless pit, (whore church) killed them and they lay ‘dead’ in the ‘streets’ of this church until God again brings them into power.
This time they will have the baptism of Fire and will finish the work of God on this earth.
The dry bones in the valley, in Eze, is these witnesses, laying
in the streets
until life from God comes back into them.
