Will the 144,000 of Rev. 7:4, 14:1-5 suffer during Israel’s Great Trouble?


“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.” [Revelation 7:4]

“And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred forty and four thousand, having his Father's name written in their foreheads. And I heard a voice from heaven, as the voice of many waters, and as the voice of a great thunder: and I heard the voice of harpers harping with their harps: And they sung as it were a new song before the throne, and before the four beasts, and the elders: and no man could learn that song but the hundred and forty and four thousand, which were redeemed from the earth. These are they which were not defiled with women; for they are virgins. These are they which follow the Lamb whithersoever he goeth. These were redeemed from among men, being the firstfruits unto God and to the Lamb. And in their mouth was found no guile: for they are without fault before the throne of God.” [Revelation 14:1-5]

“Here comes up the 144,000 after the purging of Israel, and here comes up also... The sleeping virgin comes up purged and has white robes on. See? How perfect, how beautiful that is. Just like Jacob in the time of trouble... See? They... Jacob in the time of trouble, he had done wrong, but he went through the purging time because he had wronged his brother, Esau. See? He deceived to get his birthright. But he went through a purging before he could have his name changed from Jacob to Israel, which was a type of the order of God's type today.” [The Seventh Seal, Jeffersonville IN 63-0324e]

“In Revelations 7 we read this, “Twelve thousand of each tribe.” Of the elected out of all of it, there's twelve thousand out of each tribe that's elected and are set right here in order. Oh, my. What are they? They're in tribal order. Yet they are not now, but they will be. They're in tribal order. What will be in tribal order? Not the regular Jew; no, but the ones that's the elected, the 144,000 will be set in tribal order.” [The Seventh Seal, Jeffersonville IN 63-0324e]

“In Revelations 14, John seen them again in tribal order. That's right. Every tribe to his place. What happened? You remember, he said, "Under the heavens," that his name would be blotted out of the tribal affair. As long as he was under the heavens, there would be no more, and this 144,000 is down here in the tribal part yet. That's right. But you see, they'd been blinded; they had only the sacrifice of bulls and goats.” [The Seventh Seal, Jeffersonville IN 63-0324e]

“The church goes through the tribulation, but not the Bride. The church goes through for purification, sure, under the sixth seal. Right. Israel does the same thing, for the 144,000, but not the Bride. There's... The Bride is forgiven. She goes straight to glory in a Rapture. That's right. She is, my opinion, the last member will be caught up one of these days. It might come, and you wouldn't know nothing about it. Remember, it's a secret, secret catching away. He'll come an hour that you think not. You won't know nothing about it; she'll be gone, be too late then.” [God Hiding Himself In Simplicity, Albuquerque NM 63-0412e]

“We see Israel in her homeland with her ensign lifted up, the six-point star of David. She's got her own money, her own nation, her own army. She's got everything. She's--she's Israel. What is it? She's there, ready for the purging that God will take that 144,000 from it.” [Look, Phoenix AZ 63-0428]

“The same as those two prophets did. Remember, the Gentile Bride is to have a prophet called Elias (Elijah) that's to call them out of their traditions, the Bride, just the same as these prophets call Jews out of Judaism to Christ the atonement. And the Gentiles already knows the Atonement, but it's to call the Bride back to the original Atonement, where these fifty sabbaths, oh, these seven sabbaths, that they have got away from, call them back to the end time. The seven…Listen. The seven church messenger, the seven trumpet messenger is all prophets. Now, that's right. Injected is the 144,000. Calling the Seals, which was to the Gentiles... It had to be to the Gentiles, to open up the Gentiles to see the Gentile Church. That's all we know; that's all we are listening to; what's already passed. We look for Jesus.” [The Feast Of The Trumpets, Jeffersonville IN 64-0719m]

“Remember, right between those Seals came forth the Sixth Seal, and there was the 144,000 chosen and called. And between the Sixth and Seventh Trumpet, Revelations 11 appears right there exactly in line with the Sixth Seal. What to do? What was it to do? And this was to bring forth two witnesses, Moses and Elias, prophets; which the Jews only believe their prophets. And they'll come forth with the sign of the prophets, and their work will be that of the prophet, for they did exactly, showing one thing, that men when you die, or whatever--when you leave this world your nature doesn't change. If you're a liar now, you'll be a liar there. If you're hotheaded here, you'll be hotheaded there. If you're a doubter here, you'd be a doubter there.” [Recognizing Your Day And Its Message, Jeffersonville IN 64-0726m]

“It's the same thing today. We're at the end time. Now, those people ought to have known. See? Now, you notice, Noah was a type of the Jews that'll be carried over through the tribulation. Enoch was a type of the--of the real message of--of--of the translation of the Church, for Enoch was taken up; then the flood came. And the--both of them... The first prophet, Enoch, was taken out of the way so Noah could go on with his--with his--with... God could go on with Noah. And now, the Church will be taken away so that God can deal again with the Jews, the remnant of the Jews, 144,000, as we've been through it in the Scriptures here.” [Proving His Word, Jeffersonville IN 64-0816]

“This is not to suggest that there will be no more names from the tribes of Israel remaining in the Book of Life, for many of these (but not multitudes) through the principle of election will be in the Gentile church age and come into the body of Jesus Christ, showing that their names did indeed remain in the Book of Life. Also, as we will show, according to the fifth seal multitudes of martyred Jews will be given white robes and eternal life by the Lord. Also the 144,000 will be sealed at His coming, proving that their names were not deleted either. But it is even as most accurately set forth in Psalms 69 that it is the wicked or unrighteous rejecters of Christ and the destroyers of His people whose names are removed.” [Sardisean Church Age, Book]
