THE SEALED 144,000 IS SYMBOLIC OF SPIRITUAL ISRAEL
Rev.14: 1 “ 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”
One of the most confusing aspects in the interpretation of the Book of Revelation is to have it in correspondence to the Book of Daniel. Yes, there are motifs from the Book of Daniel that can be found in the Book of Revelation going by apocalyptic writings. But the truth is, while the Book of Daniel was not only an Old Testament prophecy., It basically concerned itself with literal, physical, outward, earthly events transpiring in the world of literal, physical, natural and outward laws of ritual ceremonies even in their laws and ordinances etc etc.
But under the New Testament in which the Book of Revelation is represented, it’s completely a different thing as God’s people are a spiritual people born from above as opposed to the physical Israel old. Here we have the laws of God written in our hearts, unlike Israel that have theirs written in tablets of stone. Especially, then we can see that the Book of Revelation not sent to the Natural Israel of God after the flesh, but to His Spiritual Israel after the Spirit, his heavenly citizens of heavenly Jerusalem.
If this Book is a prophecy, as stated (Rev. 22:19), for the called out ones, that is the Church.
