not me. those being mislead are.
There is nothing funny about rejecting GOD's only way of salvation.
You also know that 12000 come from each of the 12 tribes of Israel, that they are all male and that every one of them is a virgin.
I believe the indication is that these are those that are martyred during the TRIBULATION after the catching away of the Messiah's Church.
Yes The Fathers will being done through Jesus, his appointed teachers and real followers,
The darkness teaches that.
Peter is one, he was married-not a virgin to women, thus carries an alternate meaning--like being virgins to govts and false religions--all of them are standing in opposition to Jesus. Its what Jesus meant by being no part of this world.
The Bible in Revelations 7 explicitly states the following for you or anyone to read:
1 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.
2 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,
3 Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
4 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.
5 Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were were sealed twelve thousand.
6 Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nepthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
7 Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar werewere sealed twelve thousand.
8 Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin werewere sealed twelve thousand.
9 After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
10 And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
11 And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
12 Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
13 And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
14 And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
15 Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
16 They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
It is you who are twisting the obvious text of the Bible to fit your doctrine that is clearly unscriptural and blastphamous. a remnant of Jews will be saved during the Time of Jacob's Troubles. The 144,000 does not refer to anyone else.
Everyone twists the bible to fit their own personal doctrine, just like you're doing now. It's an easy thing to do with a book that's totally made up and open to different interpretations.
Sorry, this is very explicit. Kind of like the Creation story. The "Evening and Morning" were a day. One can try to reinvent or re interpret ---- but what the Bible says is what it says. The twisting always comes especially when one is trying to circumvent Jesus to arrive in heaven!
So you're saying that Noah got 2 kangaroos from Australia, as well as all the other marsupials there, for his boat, and then put them all back afterwards? How did he do it?
No, Australia didn't exist before the FLOOD and GOD (according to the Bible) brought the animals HE wanted to go to NOAH. Read the Genesis account.
