144,000 harpists sing their spontaneous song of praise, the Tabernacle in heaven opens and seven angels with seven plagues come out. These harpists are dressed in clean, white linen with gold belts around their chests. The Hebrew word for clean is tahor and means ‘pure’ and ‘clean.’ This is a purity that is ritually ‘clean’ according to Adonai’s Torah. When they come out of the Tabernacle, they become the object of reverent fear as they wait to receive their military orders from their Commander. Each of the seven messengers is given a bowl filled with the fury of Adonai.
Standing on Mount Tziyon were 144,000 men: 12,000 from each of the 12 Tribes of Isra’el. They have the Lamb’s name and his Father’s name written on their foreheads. The promise given to those in the congregation of Philadelphia who persevered and won the victory are given the name of Yeshua and Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh. They never disowned the name of Yeshua even when attacked by false Jews. These overcomers will be kept from the time of trial that will test the earth. They have been ‘sealed’ by Adonai.
