The 144,000 Already?
« on: Fri Sep 13, 2019 - 20:55:48 »
Today I went to the store. There, I met a guy who said, "Brother! Join me and the 144,000!" I thought it was a cult, so I looked it up. It's an army that prepares Earth for the Second Coming of Christ. I don't know what's going on, but it's kinda crazy.

no ,it's not crazy, it's biblical! the 144,000 are those who will be with Jesus and Jehovah God in Heaven ,(Rev. 7-4 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. 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. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. 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).

these will rule with Jesus over a righteous New Earth ,(Matt. 5:5 Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth). see also (Rev. 5:10 And has made us unto our God kings and priests: and we shall reign on the earth).

the Brother that invite you to "join " him AND! THE "144,000." he knew that he doesn't have that Heavenly calling. as MANY on earth seem to believe they do. because Jesus CLEARLY told us that the "MEEK" meaning those following him and obey his Father ,(Matt. 7:21 Not every one that said unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that do the will of my Father which is in heaven).

will live on a new Earth free of wicked people and their wicked acts ,(Psa. 37:9-11 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

MANY don't like people who's only follow what Jesus command of his followers. which was to go and make disciples until the End of this world hits ,(Matt. 28:19,20 Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen). he's only trying to save a life. peace

All you are doing is baiting someone to debate you on your Jehovah (FALSE) Witnesses' doctrine of Revelation seven.  I'm gain! Start it!

Greetings jojo50,
no ,it's not crazy, it's biblical! the 144,000 are those who will be with Jesus and Jehovah God in Heaven, (Rev. 7-4 ).

I have always taken Matthew 5:5 to teach that the faithful will inherit the earth when they are resurrected and form part of the Kingdom of God upon the earth. They will be upon the earth, not in heaven. Revelation 5:10 also states “we shall reign on the earth”, not from heaven as you seem to be suggesting.

The following also clearly states that Jesus will return from heaven:
Acts 1:10-11 (NWT 2013): 10 And as they were gazing into the sky while he was on his way, suddenly two men in white garments stood beside them 11 and said: “Men of Galilee, why do you stand looking into the sky? This Jesus who was taken up from you into the sky will come in the same manner as you have seen him going into the sky.”
Acts 3:19-21 (NWT 2013): 19 “Repent, therefore, and turn around so as to get your sins blotted out, so that seasons of refreshing may come from Jehovah himself 20 and he may send the Christ appointed for you, Jesus. 21 Heaven must hold this one within itself until the times of restoration of all things of which God spoke through the mouth of his holy prophets of old.


Kind regards
Trevor
