Revelation 7:1-4

The Sealing of the 144,000/Servants of God

Revelation 7:1: “And after these things I” [John] “saw” [Another vision] “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.”

Revelation 7:2: “And I” [John] “saw” [In the vision] “another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he” [The angel] “cried with a loud voice to the four angels,” [Standing on the four corners of the earth] “to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,”

Revelation 7:3: “Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we” [The angel ascending from the east, and the four angels standing on the four corners of the earth] “have sealed the servants of our God” [The 144,000] “in their foreheads.” The Servants of God/144,000 will be sealed by the angels; they will receive the knowledge of the everlasting gospel to preach to the people of the earth.

Revelation 7:4: “And I” [John] “heard the number of them" [The servants of God] "which were sealed:” [With the knowledge of the everlasting gospel] “and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.”
