The 144000 Is the Final Completion of The Kingdom Temple of New Jerusalem
[Important: Please bear in mind that the 1914 fulfillments of God’s prophecies through Daniel and John in the Revelation were a MINOR fulfillment. Those patterns will become REALITY, not a pattern any longer but the real thing in the near future. So please keep in mind that there is a dual applicability to what is being discussed here as regards the 1914 fulfillment cycle, and the future final MAJOR fulfillment cycle. I will try to note these things directly or by context noted.]
Let’s notice the final future major fulfillment of Revelation 14.
(Revelation 14:1) And I saw, and, look! the Lamb standing upon the Mount Zion, and with him a hundred and forty-four thousand having his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads.
That Lamb “standing” is related to the final conquest of Christ as King of kings, and ALL the kings implied in that phrase will be present at the final conquest of this (1) universe, Michael’s name significance when opposing demon forces (Eph6:12; Rev12:7-10) and the Christ King over the earth, whose rulership is through Christ as anointed of Jehovah through 144000 co-ruling king-priests under him:
(Revelation 5:8-10) And when he took the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, having each one a harp and golden bowls that were full of incense, and the incense means the prayers of the holy ones. 9 And they sing a new song, saying: “You are worthy to take the scroll and open its seals, because you were slaughtered and with your blood you bought persons for God out of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, 10 and you made them to be a kingdom and priests to our God, and they are to rule as kings over the earth.”
That “stand” in approaching finality of Jesus Christ’s total conquest of earth and this universe, is also related to the major fulfillment cycle of Daniel 12:1 and Michael’s stand, as we also know well the 1914 foregleam significance, let’s note the future final major fulfillment here related to Revelation 14:
(Daniel 12:1) “And during that time Michael will stand up, the great prince who is standing in behalf of the sons of your people. And there will certainly occur a time of distress such as has not been made to occur since there came to be a nation until that time. And during that time your people will escape, every one who is found written down in the book.
We note there of course the “distress” period that accompanied the minor fulfillment in 1914’s World War 1 tribulation and of course must apply to the final great tribulation upon this world and the related patterns and related events that the foregleam event has given us divine clues to the certainty these things MUST repeat in a final fulfillment soon:
(Daniel 12:7) And as soon as there will have been a finishing of the dashing of the power of the holy people to pieces, all these things will come to their finish.”
Obviously in 1914 the total finality “these things will come to their finish” (Rev10:2; Rev 11:11-15; Rev16:17) had not occurred but the “prophetic word was made more sure” (2Pet3:19-21) by a “great sign seen in heaven” (Rev12:1) by Christ’s brothers on earth as these things were more fully ascertained (Matt24:27-28) in the following years of this greatest of all dates and events in human history since Christ’s mission was accomplished in 33CE and he offered perfect and approved sacrifice to God Jehovah making all this even possible, enthroned as God’s King Anointed One; (Rev12:7-10).
What is to come in the near future will be an even greater date in human history!
But we will touch on the deliverance of this Lamb Christ in these words ” during that time your people will escape” that concludes Revelation 14’s sequence.
For now we will concentrate on the instrument of deliverance that MUST accompany Christ in FULL completion PRIOR to the final deliverance and conquest, the full house, the ultimate checkmate event of all human history, and he is our foregleam:
(Daniel 12:3) “And the ones having insight will shine like the brightness of the expanse; and those who are bringing the many to righteousness, like the stars to time indefinite, even forever.
In the final fulfillment those “stars” are made immortal, hence ” stars to time indefinite, even forever” in pattern of the first “star” Jesus Christ, whose “new creation” also is in pattern with his archangelic origins as also this “star” “first in all things”:
(Revelation 22:16) “‘I, Jesus, sent my angel to bear witness to you people of these things for the congregations. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright morning star.’”
Christ is “bright” in being the most glorious of the angels and the “new creation”. His is the firstborn priority hence he is the “morning”, the “dawn” of it all by Jehovah’s power, and he is “star” as in God’s spirit being archangel, angelic being now exalted to “a superior position”.
These “stars” in Christ’s pattern as heirs under his “firstborn from the dead” (Rev1:5) priority and incorruptible immortality also mount up with “wings like eagles”, a symbol of angelic nature and deliverance powers; (Ex19:4; Luke17:37 (in final fulfillment)):
(Isaiah 40:31) They will mount up with wings like eagles.
In that prophecy of Isaiah this was continued from the creation of God noted by Isaiah of the “stars”:
(Isaiah 40:26) “Raise your eyes high up and see. Who has created these things? It is the One who is bringing forth the army of them even by number, all of whom he calls even by name. Due to the abundance of dynamic energy, he also being vigorous in power, not one of them is missing.
So none of these “stars” will be missing, the 144000 are completed in the final gathering phase of Christ manifestation. That “gathering” of both classes is also foregleamed as Jehovah comes with all the holy ones (Zech14:5b) and here is complete “ruling arm” (Christ and the 144000), to collect “sheep”:
(Isaiah 40:10-11) Look! The Sovereign Lord Jehovah himself will come even as a strong one, and his arm will be ruling for him. Look! His reward is with him, and the wage he pays is before him. 11 Like a shepherd he will shepherd his own drove. With his arm he will collect together the lambs; and in his bosom he will carry them. Those giving suck he will conduct with care.
And that ties into the salvation event of Revelation 14:14-16:
(Revelation 14:14-16) And I saw, and, look! a white cloud, and upon the cloud someone seated like a son of man, with a golden crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15 And another angel emerged from the temple sanctuary, crying with a loud voice to the one seated on the cloud: “Put your sickle in and reap, because the hour has come to reap, for the harvest of the earth is thoroughly ripe.” 16 And the one seated on the cloud thrust in his sickle on the earth, and the earth was reaped.
And that paralleled event is noted here in relation to the Babylon the Great destruction sub-tribulation completion, part of the “time of distress” in the final fulfillment:
(Mark 13:24-27) “But in those days, after that tribulation, the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, 25 and the stars will be falling out of heaven, and the powers that are in the heavens will be shaken. 26 And then they will see the Son of man coming in clouds with great power and glory. 27 And then he will send forth the angels and will gather his chosen ones together from the four winds, from earth’s extremity to heaven’s extremity.
And that “gathering” is a separation work noted by God through Luke paralleling this exact “thief in the night” culmination event:
(Luke 17:34-37) I tell you, In that night two men will be in one bed; the one will be taken along, but the other will be abandoned. 35 There will be two women grinding at the same mill; the one will be taken along, but the other will be abandoned.” 36. 37 So in response they said to him: “Where, Lord?” He said to them: “Where the body is, there also the eagles will be gathered together.”
In the final fulfillment those “eagles” are gathered into Christ as this all concludes as per Revelation’s also final fulfillment the actual “air event” of Jesus Christ entering earth’s vicinity to depose Satan and the demons, to replace those “stars” of evil, permanently and forever:
(Revelation 16:17) And the seventh one poured out his bowl upon the air. At this a loud voice issued out of the sanctuary from the throne, saying: “It has come to pass!”
Those “stars” to be in that seventh plague “Christ Air Event” paralleling the seventh trumpet completion as well are “those who are surviving” here to meet Christ “in the air” of his earth vicinity for complete conquest and deliverance of the “sheep” to follow this Revelation 14:1 foregleamed fulfillment to the culmination:
(1 Thessalonians 4:17-18) Afterward we the living who are surviving will, together with them, be caught away in clouds to meet the Lord in the air; and thus we shall always be with the Lord. 18 Consequently keep comforting one another with these words.
Which was foregleamed here for a final ultimate fulfillment in time, soon:
(Revelation 11:11-15) And after the three and a half days spirit of life from God entered into them, and they stood upon their feet, and great fear fell upon those beholding them. 12 And they heard a loud voice out of heaven say to them: “Come on up here.” And they went up into heaven in the cloud, and their enemies beheld them…15 And the seventh angel blew his trumpet. And loud voices occurred in heaven, saying: “The kingdom of the world did become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will rule as king forever and ever.”
And the completion of the “sacred secret” of the 144000 Kingdom was shown to precede the seventh trumpet here:
(Revelation 10:6-7) “There will be no delay any longer; 7 but in the days of the sounding of the seventh angel, when he is about to blow his trumpet, the sacred secret of God according to the good news which he declared to his own slaves the prophets is indeed brought to a finish.”
now let’s please keep in mind we are talking the final, climax event of the completion of this “sacred secret” which pertains to a full gathering and to the body of Christ, the 144000 congregation:
(Ephesians 1:8-10) This he caused to abound toward us in all wisdom and good sense, 9 in that he made known to us the sacred secret of his will. It is according to his good pleasure which he purposed in himself 10 for an administration at the full limit of the appointed times, namely, to gather all things together again in the Christ, the things in the heavens and the things on the earth.
And we have seen already what culminates the gathering, a divine intervention “after the tribulation of those days” as Christ completes the full “gathering” by angelic aid, these are ones of this class:
(Ephesians 5:32) This sacred secret is great. Now I am speaking with respect to Christ and the congregation.
(1 Peter 2:4-5) Coming to him as to a living stone, rejected, it is true, by men, but chosen, precious, with God, 5 you yourselves also as living stones are being built up a spiritual house for the purpose of a holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.
And in context of the future final fulfillment even this final completion of the seventh trumpet, of which 1914 is the foregleam, in this finality this scripture shows the “dead” here to relate to a spiritual state (Rom 6:11), but in the final fulfillment this takes on also final meaning:
(1 Corinthians 15:51-53) Look! I tell you a sacred secret: We shall not all fall asleep in death, but we shall all be changed, 52 in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, during the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised up incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 53 For this which is corruptible must put on incorruption, and this which is mortal must put on immortality.
And that was foregleamed by Christ here at this final arrival to earth event:
(Matthew 13:39-40) …in the conclusion of the system of things. 41 The Son of man will send forth his angels, and they will collect out from his kingdom all things that cause stumbling and persons who are doing lawlessness…At that time the righteous ones will shine as brightly as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let him that has ears listen.
Obviously 1914 is not the “conclusion of the system of things”, but that scripture above must parallel the final fulfillment of Daniel 12 which is also the final fulfillment of Revelation 14:1 as the Zion Lamb will be standing with his entire “royal family” prior to the salvation deliverance phase of Revelation 14:14-16, and the final destruction phase of Revelation 14:17-19.
This therefore parallels also the court phase of Matthew 25:31-46 final separation of the “sheep and goats” which is in active fulfillment, that is live separation will STILL be taking place at this point in time:
(Matthew 25:31-41) “When the Son of man arrives in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit down on his glorious throne. 32 And all the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate people one from another, just as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 And he will put the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on his left. 34 “Then the king will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who have been blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the founding of the world…41 “Then he will say, in turn, to those on his left, ‘Be on your way from me, you who have been cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the Devil and his angels.
Is it coincidental the previous pattern of divine “transference”, Enoch, also prophesied about this event?:
(Jude 14-15) Yes, the seventh one in line from Adam, Enoch, prophesied also regarding them, when he said: “Look! Jehovah came with his holy myriads, 15 to execute judgment against all, and to convict all the ungodly concerning all their ungodly deeds that they did in an ungodly way, and concerning all the shocking things that ungodly sinners spoke against him.”
That is a judgment. And that “court” phase parallels also Daniel’s “court” phase which denotes also a dynamic event of a time period to final judgment as well:
(Daniel 7:26) And the Court itself proceeded to sit, and his own rulership they finally took away, in order to annihilate him and to destroy him totally.
That has not occurred yet obviously.
Christ is the Foundation and the Crowning Capstone
Now this hint is also given in Revelation’s use of the word “temple” to denote a completion to follow a measuring assuring completion, and in now way will Jehovah place the Christ “headstone” on 143,999 pillars or stones of that temple as if the place will be “under construction” through the conquest:
(Zechariah 4:6-9) Accordingly he answered and said to me: “This is the word of Jehovah to Zerubbabel, saying, ‘“Not by a military force, nor by power, but by my spirit,” Jehovah of armies has said. 7 Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you will become a level land. And he will certainly bring forth the headstone. There will be shoutings to it: “How charming! How charming!”’” 8 And the word of Jehovah continued to occur to me, saying: 9 “The very hands of Zerubbabel have laid the foundation of this house, and his own hands will finish it.
That is why most assuredly the 144000 WILL be complete as “all the holy ones being with” Jehovah upon final conquest:
(Zechariah 14:5) And Jehovah my God will certainly come, all the holy ones being with him.
(Revelation 17:14) These will battle with the Lamb, but, because he is Lord of lords and King of kings, the Lamb will conquer them. Also, those called and chosen and faithful with him will do so.”
The temple arrangement is shown here as to who is in that temple as the 144000 upon Christ the foundation, and under Christ the “headstone” noted at Zechariah 4:7:
(Revelation 3:12) 12 “‘The one that conquers—I will make him a pillar in the temple of my God, and he will by no means go out from it anymore, and I will write upon him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem which descends out of heaven from my God, and that new name of mine.
Now by this time the “great crowd” is in a COMPLETED temple arrangement for we know this is AFTER the the Revelation 14:1 full stand of the Lamb with 144000 being with him in that Zion arrangement prior to the “earth harvest” of the final “sheep” salvation and deliverance that follows in Revelation 14:14-16, to this point in time – the most far reaching prophecy of Revelation 1-19 prior to Revelation 20, AFTER final conquest of a Messianic Kingdom Temple arrangement which completed at Revelation 14:1 in the final major fulfillment to everlasting reality:
(Revelation 7:15) That is why they are before the throne of God; and they are rendering him sacred service day and night in his temple; and the One seated on the throne will spread his tent over them.
At this point in the Revelation visions from God through Christ, the temple is not a completed arrangement yet, the courtyard is still being trampled, as that too must complete two sets of 1260 days, to be demonstrated in these reports, to a full 2520 days of the actual permitted trampling of the holy city in the 1914 to 1918 period, and in the final future fulfillment:
(Revelation 11:1) And a reed like a rod was given me as he said: “Get up and measure the temple sanctuary of God and the altar and those worshiping in it.
This is the segway when the temple is completed, and begins to be used as that word “temple” in Revelation denoting this full 144000 completion – THIS is when the “temple is opened”:
(Revelation 11:15-19) And the seventh angel blew his trumpet. And loud voices occurred in heaven, saying: “The kingdom of the world did become the kingdom of our Lord and of his Christ, and he will rule as king forever and ever… 19 And the temple sanctuary of God that is in heaven was opened, and the ark of his covenant was seen in his temple sanctuary.
That denotes that the new covenant and the kingdom covenant with Christ has come to pass in full completion of that for which it was created in this statement ” the ark of his covenant was seen in his temple sanctuary”. That shows the legally adopted and born-again priesthood and the full kingdom is completed in the temple arrangement, now at this point in the future “open” to mankind, by which we see the “great crowd” is “in” that temple arrangement. In fact those “sheep” covered by the “blood of the Lamb” in that final “passover” at Armageddon are delivered by it’s conquering and sanctifying powers of Christ through his anointed FULL “body” of himself and the 144000 foregleamed long ago as the beginning of the Mosaic Law Covenant “if”, “then” statement of the conditions of that covenant and the beneficial provisions from God Jehovah of that covenant of that time. The Ark was the symbol of Jehovah’s presence of this totality of hope:
(Exodus 19:5-6) And now if you will strictly obey my voice and will indeed keep my covenant, then you will certainly become my special property out of all other peoples, because the whole earth belongs to me. 6 And you yourselves will become to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words that you are to say to the sons of Israel.”
Though the Jews failed that, Jehovah’s glory, as associated with that Ark’s Shekinah light, and the glory that filled the sanctuary as Jehovah’s spirit filled it, and that will be present, for real, in the total 144000 as he inhabits them by spirit beyond the earthly foregleam:
(1 Corinthians 3:16) Do you not know that you people are God’s temple, and that the spirit of God dwells in you?
(Ezekiel 43:1-7) Then he made me go to the gate, the gate that is facing toward the east. 2 And, look! the glory of the God of Israel was coming from the direction of the east, and his voice was like the voice of vast waters; and the earth itself shone because of his glory…4 And the glory of Jehovah itself came into the House by way of the gate the front of which was toward the east. 5 And a spirit proceeded to raise me up and bring me into the inner courtyard, and, look! the House had become full of the glory of Jehovah. 6 And I began to hear someone speaking to me out of the House, and the man himself had come to be standing beside me. 7 And He went on to say to me: “Son of man, this is the place of my throne and the place of the soles of my feet, where I shall reside in the midst of the sons of Israel to time indefinite…
Which is this fulfillment:
(Revelation 21:1-4) And I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the former heaven and the former earth had passed away, and the sea is no more. 2 I saw also the holy city, New Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God and prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. 3 With that I heard a loud voice from the throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside with them, and they will be his peoples. And God himself will be with them. 4 And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
Which the “great crowd” are in the inauguration of a competed temple arrangement first for humans:
(Revelation 7:14-17) “These are the ones that come out of the great tribulation, and they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 That is why they are before the throne of God; and they are rendering him sacred service day and night in his temple; and the One seated on the throne will spread his tent over them. 16 They will hunger no more nor thirst anymore, neither will the sun beat down upon them nor any scorching heat, 17 because the Lamb, who is in the midst of the throne, will shepherd them, and will guide them to fountains of waters of life. And God will wipe out every tear from their eyes.”
And that is why these angels come forth in that complete “Court” arrangement completed in Christ’s heavenly sheep first, to complete the earthly separation work noted here in the “earth harvest” of the “virgins in her train” of the Lamb’s Marriage to of course a Bride with not a hair on here head missing because the temple is complete by this point in Revelation’s final fulfillment of this prophecy:
(Revelation 14:15-17) And another angel emerged from the temple sanctuary…17 And still another angel emerged from the temple sanctuary that is in heaven, he, too, having a sharp sickle.
The completion is not “too extraordinary” for Jehovah to present a complete Bride for Christ also in completion by this time in the final fulfillment of Revelation 19:
(Revelation 19:6-8) And I heard what was as a voice of a great crowd and as a sound of many waters and as a sound of heavy thunders. They said: “Praise Jah, you people, because Jehovah our God, the Almighty, has begun to rule as king. 7 Let us rejoice and be overjoyed, and let us give him the glory, because the marriage of the Lamb has arrived and his wife has prepared herself. 8 Yes, it has been granted to her to be arrayed in bright, clean, fine linen, for the fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the holy ones.”
That “let us rejoice and be overjoyed, and let us give him the glory” is because the Bride is now in the “house”, a complete “house”, in joy as Jehovah’s completed children, in this context Jehovah’s “daughter”, the “Daughter of Zion”:
(Psalm 45:13-15) The king’s daughter is all glorious within the house; Her clothing is with settings of gold. 14 In woven apparel she will be brought to the king. The virgins in her train as her companions are being brought in to you. 15 They will be brought with rejoicing and joyfulness; They will enter into the palace of the king.
(Micah 4:8) 8 “And as for you, O tower of the drove, the mound of the daughter of Zion, as far as to you it will come, yes, the first dominion will certainly come, the kingdom belonging to the daughter of Jerusalem.
Therefore the 144000 “daughter” symbol is completed in reality BEFORE the threshing event in the final major fulfillment in the near future. Jehovah does not have a “daughter” missing an eyebrow, and Christ’s Bride will not be missing a toe, nipple and eyelash. Let’s exercise a little faith here brothers, the Bride is complete before the threshing of Armageddon final “war of the great day of God the Almighty”:
(Micah 4:13) “Get up and thresh, O daughter of Zion; for your horn I shall change into iron, and your hoofs I shall change into copper, and you will certainly pulverize many peoples; and by a ban you will actually devote to Jehovah their unjust profit, and their resources to the true Lord of the whole earth.”
Two Witnessings for 2520 Days Total Testimony and Trampling
Which brings us to the final warning of such an earth shaking and permanent event, the repetition of the “two witnesses” for a complete 2520 days mini-parallel “appointed times” completion of the greater 2520 year event of finalizing the end of the world of rival sovereigns opposed to Jehovah’s King, and Christ’s Messianic Kingdom rulership.
