“And I looked, and lo a Lamb stood on Mount Zion and with Him an hundred and forty and four thousand having His Father’s name written in their foreheads,” Rev. 14:1-5.


Those written in the Lamb’s book are those who have received His nature. Therefore, in Col. 3:17 we are told, “…whatsoever ye do IN WORD OR DEED, DO ALL IN TI IE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, giving thanks to God and Father by Him.”

As we carry on our words and deeds in the nature of the Lord, we become the clean cooking pots of Zech. 14, that the nations will eventually have need of. For then we truly become vessels of honour as the Father’s house in glory after due restoration.

The question at this point is how many people are partaking of your life? How are you influencing the nation around you for good? Think about it.


Another important event that will take place as we truly put on His name – nature – is that we become a source of life to the nations. In Exo. 28:36-38, concerning the priesthood of Aaron, we read;

“…Make a plate of pure gold and engrave on it, just as would upon a seal CONSECRATED TO JEHOVAH (HOLINESS UNTO THE LORD). This plate is to be attached by means of a blue ribbon to the front of Aaron’s turban. In this way Aaron will be wearing it upon His forehead and THUS BEAR THE GUILT CONNECTED WITH ANY ERRORS REGARDING THE OFFERING OF THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL. IT SHALL ALWAYS BE WORN WHEN HE GOES INTO THE PRESENCE OF THE LORD SO THAT PEOPLE WILL BE ACCEPTED AND FORGIVEN,” TLB.

Can you see anything from this? Because of the Holiness, which is the nature of God, displayed by the priest of God, the nation of Israel will not only be accepted but will also have their sins forgiven and their offerings accepted. What is the meaning of this? The priest becomes a burden bearer.

This “royal priesthood” of God (2Pet. 2:9) will come to a place in God that when God looks upon them, He will see Himself; and they will serve in their ministry as a covering for the rest of humanity. No wonder the first born Son Jesus, our high priest, served to propitiate not only for our sins but also for the sins of the whole world, 1John 2:2.

What a perfect example He left behind for us to follow in our ministry. Paul clearly brought out this truth when he said,

“ALL THINGS are of God, who hath reconciled us to Himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of RECONCILIATION. To wit that GOD WAS IN CHRIST reconciling the WORLD unto Himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them (because He found a man displaying His Character in His forehead just like Aaron) and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation. Now then we are ambassadors for Christ… For He hath made Him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him,” 2Cor. 5:18-21.

What are we saying? As ambassadors for Christ, we have received a nature that can no longer count people’s errors upon them. We are becoming a generation that can stand between God and man, bringing them back to their Father as we forgive and reveal the mercies of God, which is our nature. No wonder the Scripture says, “Blessed are the peace makers; for they shall be called the children of God,” Matt. 5:9.

And again, “…In thee and in thy seed (the new generation of priesthood after the nature of God) shall all the families of the earth be blessed,” Gen. 28:14. Thank God for His nature-name. Amen!


“And I heard a voice from heaven, like the voice of many waters, and like the voice of loud thunder. And I heard the sound of harpists playing harps,” Rev. 14:2 NKJV. Now we shall step into verse 2 of Rev. 14. I did promise you that this shall be a very long subject study, but we need to unravel the mysteries of all the elements in verses 1-5 of this chapter.

The first thing you will notice in this passage is the phrase “voice from heaven.” Now the word “voice” as used here is the Greek word “phone” which means “through the idea of disclosure,” “a tone,” “an address for any purpose,” “saying or language.”

So by implication what John heard in the Spirit is a language that unveils the minds of those that had the voice, the ‘many waters.’ The voice or language was bringing forth a revelation of what was within. It was a specific tone known to the possessors.

Again, we are told that, the voice or language was “from heaven,” meaning it was the language (voice) from the heavenly realm and by heavenly dwellers (Rev. 12:10). The meaning of the voice explains their deliverance from the hand of the wicked one and their long expected salvation in Christ.

So essentially we are talking of the language of the overcomers, the virgins who are sitting and reigning together with Christ in Spirit, those who are “with Him” in Mount Zion, redeemed from amongst men.
