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.
The star falls like a blazing torch. There are 19 Biblical references that use ‘torch,’ but there are only a couple with ‘blazing torch.’ The prophet Isaiah says, “For Zion’s sake I won’t keep silent, and for Jerusalem’s sake I won’t sit still until her righteousness shines out like a light, and her salvation blazes like a torch” (Isaiah 62:1). Just moments before, there had been silence in heaven, a silence that spoke of Adonai waiting before sending forth the trumpet judgments. It is for Zion’s sake that He could not remain silent, and it is for Jerusalem that He could no longer wait. He wants the righteousness of Jerusalem to shine like a light in the darkness, and for salvation –– Yeshua –– to ‘blaze like a torch.’
