12.16.2018 – New Testament: Rev 7.4
To read the Bible in a year, read Revelation 7 on December 16, In the year of our Lord Christ 2018
By Don Ruhl
John heard an angel say that destruction of the earth was to be withheld until the servants of God had been sealed. Then John heard the number of them:
And I heard the number of those who were sealed. One hundred and forty-four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel were sealed… (Revelation 7.4).
Among the numbers that God favors is the number 12, and 144,000 is 12 times 12. Twelve-thousand came from each of the twelve tribes of Israel…sort of. Read the list that follows in the text and see if a tribe is missing, and if one is, how is it that the number was still 12 times 12?
- What other “12s” can you find in the Bible?
- What other numbers does God favor?
