Seal of God
The bible says that God would grant salvation by putting the seal of God on the chosen people of God so that they could receive the protection from the disasters and go to the eternal kingdom of heaven. This is the most important message given to God’s people who are living in the last days.
Revelation 7:1 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. 2 Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea: 3 “Do not harm the land or the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” 4 Then I heard the number of those who were sealed: 144,000 from all the tribes of Israel.
This is one of the most important prophecies to the people who are living in the last day. This prophecy is concerned with the salvation work of God in the last day. God completes his salvation work by putting his seal on the people who are going to be saved in the last day.
About the Seal of God
Who brings the Seal of God?
Therefore, through this article and the following ones, I would like to talk about the seal of God by considering all the aspects related to them.
The first part is about the person who would bring the seal of God. Through this we can know the Savior who is coming in the last days to save us. We are living in a time when many say they are the Christ who was to come. And they are trying to deceive people. However, through this subject, we can know the one who comes as the true Savior according to the words of God.
When and From Where?
Second, this prophecy let us know when God would start to work putting the seal of God. God gave a lot of signs to teach us the time frame when the seal of God is given to the people of God through this prophecy. By looking at those signs we can truly understand the time frame we are living in. Third, through this prophecy, we can know where the Savior comes to put the seal of God.
What is the Seal of God?
Fourth, we can also know what the seal of God is. The bible teaches that God would come and put his seal on the forehead of his people. We cannot interpret it literally because everything written in the bible is a parable and have figurative meaning in it. Therefore, we should not understand it literally. Those who misunderstand the parable consider that this seal would be physical and they think it might be a certain mark which will be imprinted on the forehead. Or others even think that it might be some type of microchips implanted under the skin of people. All these things occurs from misunderstand the words of God interpreting it literally.
Why Should we Receive the Seal of God?
Fifth, we will find out the reason why we should receive the seal of God. This prophecy teaches us what is going to happen in the last days. And it says that there would be great disasters in the last days which can destroy everything on this earth. And the only way to escape from this disaster is to be under the protection of God by receiving the seal of God.
All these things were given to us as the grace of God for human beings so that they can receive salvation in the last day. Therefore, we have to listen with a humble mind what God has to teach us and put them into practice. There are people who do not trust the words of God in the bible. They say that they are not true. These people would have a rude awakening when the time comes for the fulfillment of the prophecies of the bible. God is calling those who are humble in mind and tell them to listen to his teaching.
Habakkuk 2:1 I will stand at my watch and station myself on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say to me, and what answer I am to give to this complaint. The Lord’s Answer 2 Then the Lord replied: “Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it. 3 For the revelation awaits an appointed time; it speaks of the end and will not prove false. Though it linger, wait for it; it will certainly come and will not delay.
We have to listen this prophecy without any doubt. God’s prophecy has an appointed time. And when the time comes, it will surely be fulfilled and it will not delay. Therefore, before the appointed time comes, we have to know the commands of God and obey to the commands without adding or subtracting anything from the words of God. Through this prophecy we can know how much God is working diligently for our salvation and how much sure and trustworthy the words of God are. And we should surely give everlasting thanks and honor to God.
