Contents: A parenthetical chapter on the saved of the tribulation period. 144,000 Jewish evangelists will spark a worldwide repentance among many Jews and Gentiles.
Characters: God, John, Four Angels
Conclusion: In this great time of unparalleled trouble which is to fall upon the earth after the translation of the saints, there will be a vast company of repentant Jews sealed for preservation along with a multitude of the Gentiles. They will all be moved to repentance regarding Messiah Jesus. They will find salvation through His shed blood and many will pay the price of martyrdom for their faith (Revelation 7:14, 6:9-11).
Striking Facts: Take a look at Revelation 7:10, 14. The cry of these who come up out of the Great Tribulation is not the same as the cry of redemption (Revelation 5:9). It is the cry of salvation from judgment. While it is the blood of the Lamb which has purchased their release from judgment, they are not technically members of the Body of Messiah, the Church. The Church has been taken out of the world by this time in the Rapture.
